INTRO TO HACK #3.2, Inclusiveness is a perfect moment

A cup of coffee cannot be defined as coffee when there is no focus on it – neither can someone be defined to not focus on it, as it requires focus to be someone. The graphic is grabbed from cyberspace.

When you have a look at the world, it is thoughts that tell you what it is that you see. And they imply there is a world full of appearances divided into categories of for example good or bad and attractive or repelling. But you do not have to listen to those thoughts though. If you do not hang onto them in an attempt to compile them into a story, they will just pass by. In other words, all you have to do to not see a world where there seems to be more than one is to not use thoughts to confirm its apparent differences.

To appear as someone special much concentration is needed, whereas no concentration is required to not to appear as someone at all.

When defocusing* you cannot remember what and where you are, and so there is nobody to compile thoughts into a definition of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither is there nobody to see if they just pass by, but that is how it appears to Alexius while writing this intro and enjoying a cortado.

Instead of searching for thoughts, that can define the cortado in front of him, he goes with the flow of the world enfolding itself in the froth of it. When this is not converted into something familiar based on past definitions, coffee is not perceived to be different from the froth of it or the world appearing to be in it, nor outside of it.

This does not mean that the apparent differences of the world are not experienced to be there, but that they do not make a difference when you are inclusive and not exclusive.

Defocusing may seem to space you out, so that you see new worlds within the world, which is a grand way

If hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment seems to make you spaced out, you are on the right track in regards to undoing the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Yet, you are not on the right track, if you space out on the way to pick up your kids from the kindergarten, as they require you to focus on differences, so that you can be more than them and guide them on their journey in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Spaced out is just one side-effect of defocusing. Another one is clarity. When you are not focused on anything, in particular, your mind is not busy discussing what is right and wrong, and so you intuitively do and say what is called for. Not because you know what to do or say, as that would require focus, but because you function in automatic gear in much the same way as when you are connected with the empty breath.**

Being in automatic gear it is not a problem to multitask. In fact, it seems to be the most natural thing to do, since you are not result-minded anymore.

Yet being process-minded is not a requirement for undoing the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. No being but inclusion is required. So if you are result-minded and feel guilty about it, you just include that. As anything in a world where there seems to be more than one needs to be contrasted by something in order for it to be experienced as something specific, process-minded and innocence are also included when you include result-minded and feeling guilty.

You do not have to be aware of this for the inclusion of a contrast to work, as the two opposing sides of a contrast are like two sides of the same coin, so the inclusion of one side includes them both.

Since the two opposing sides of a contrast cancel out each other when added together, the sum of them is nothing, and as this momentarily rubs off on other contrasts making up what you believe to be, you are in a state of not-knowing. Thus there is nobody to judge anything in terms of good and bad, wherefore everything is fine as it is. That is why every moment is the perfect moment.


*) It is common sense, that you only defocus in situations, where your attention is not needed in the world. As long as you appear to be in a world, where there seem to be more than one, you play along on its premise, which requires much focus and concentration, as otherwise there does not appear to be a world, where there seems to be more than one.

**) In hack #4, Being in a state of not-knowing there is more about the empty breath.

Perceiving the apparent differences of such a world to not make a difference will undo the belief in separation, while you can have fun appearing to be separated.
