No grievances, no world

Moaning and whining sets the focus on problems and you need to stay focussed to appear as if you are someone in a world, where there seem to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Grievances keep you focused, and you need to stay focused in order to constantly be able to control thoughts so they can be used to keep together the imagination of a world defined by time and space.

Believing to see something is an illusion, as it takes more than one to see anything, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Thoughts have no power
This is not to say that it is thoughts that make such a world appear to be real. If you, within the context of this world, is sitting in your bathtub and start to imagine a world in the steam from the hot water, it is not the steam, that makes the world. It has no such power. There only appear to be a hidden world in the steam, because you like to imagine it. Thoughts can be compared to the steam.

Even though the steam in your bathtub may seem to hide the bathroom, nothing in the bathroom is changed by the steam. Likewise, even though your belief in the thought construction of a world, where there seem to be more than one, appears to hide that which is one, nothing has changed. There is no more than that which is one.

In the context of the world, steam is not really something, so it only appears to be there for a short while. And in the context of the formlessness of oneness thoughts are gone the same moment they appear to be there.

As a story has a beginning and an end, so has the story of a world defined by time and space, and as oneness has no end, since it is formless and therefore endless, a world defined by time and space is not part of it.

That is unless you want to believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one and therefore hang onto them in order to fabricate a story of a world defined by time and space outside the formlessness of oneness. There is, however, nothing outside of it, since formlessness is endless. Hence the story of a world where there seems to be more than one is fabricated by empty space.

If you want, that which is real, namely the formlessness of oneness, forget about focusing on forms like for example in this image. Focusing will only enhance the appearance of form and therefore the belief, that separation is possible. Defocusing on the other hand will blur out everything until there are no forms to hide the formlessness of oneness.

The world is make-believe upheld by focusing on specific appearances
There is nothing in a world defined by time and space, so if you believe to be there, you cannot leave it, but the belief that you are there can be undone – and as focusing is what keeps the belief together defocusing will undo it.

Contrasting defocus with focus
It is through defocusing the words in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are exposed. So if you do not try to understand them, they will hack your focus, so you do not see anything specific. Be aware though, that it may seem to take time if you are attached to the perception of linear time, because like everything else in a world defined by time and space is based on contrasts – in this case, the contrast of past and future.

Not knowing what he writes is how Alexius types down his enlightened non-teachings.

So while in the process of undoing the belief in a world defined by time and space, you must operate within contrasts, which in regards to defocusing you do by alternating it with focusing. Just like Alexius is defocusing in order to write these non-teachings and focusing when proofreading and publishing them.

Or you are non-focused when reading the non-teachings, and focused when implementing them in a world defined by time and space. To read in a defocused way, however, is not to read between the lines. There is nothing in between the lines, so if you seem to experience something there, you have focused a lot to imagine this. So to read in a defocused way is rather to not know what you are reading.

Have your cake and eat it too
A terrific way to contrast focus with defocussing is to see everything in a world defined by time and space as symbols of that which makes it possible to focus on something specific, namely the formlessness of oneness.* Perceiving the world like that everything definable is a symbol of that which cannot be defined. Thus the apparent differences of the world do not make a difference, which means you are defocusing.

In this way, you can have your cake and eat it too. You get the excitement of appearing to be and/or have more than that which is one, while the belief that this is possible is being undone.
