PMT A perfect moment does not require learning – only inclusion

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings
about including both sides of a contrast, so that they cancel out each other* and leave you with nothing but a perfect moment is not meant to be a new religion or philosophy with special steps to learn and strictly to follow.

In the previous articles where there have been examples of contrasts like love and hate or good and bad, it is quite easy to figure out the opposite opponents of a contrast. But you do not need to be conscious about the opposite side of a certain thought or feeling in order to include both sides of the contrast.

It only make sense to talk about night, because we also are aware of its contrast day. And we would not know about light if not for darkness. So it makes no difference, if you are aware of both sides of a contrast or not, as long as you just include one side of it exactly as you perceive it.

You cannot experience just one thing. If you did you would not know what it is that you experience. You need the contrast of love, which is hate, to know you are in love. In other words, when including love as it is, hate is automatically included* – even though it often is on an unconscious level.

The inclusion of everything perceived in a moment is not complicated. If the Chinese wallpaper in this image is not part of the perception of the moment for the person eating in a Chinese restaurant, there is no need for him to include it.

Maybe he did not even noticed the food in the moment of this photo, but had a childhood memory popping up when being photographed. If so, including everything as it is perceived in the moment for him is to include the memory of his childhood and whatever thoughts or feeling arises from that.

This is what makes the moment perfect for him. Not Alexius shooting the photo, the Chinese food or the beautiful people passing by, because that is not his perception of the moment. His perception of the moment is of the past, and when that is included the moment is perfect now.

There are no rules but inclusion
It is inclusiveness that makes a moment perfect. If there is something you forget to include, you include forgetfulness, which automatically will include mindfulness as well, whether you are aware of this contrast or not.

A perfect moment can be compared to a zone where there is no concern and therefore no need to correct, transcend or transform anything.

The idea of living in the now is as most so-called spiritual ideas based on exclusion so that the belief in separation can be enhanced – in this case, it is the past and future that is excluded in order to find a separated point in between those called now. A perfect moment, however, is no based on separation, as it includes any memory of the past as well as expectations for the future.

It can last a split second, but it may also seem as if you forever are in a state of daydreaming about nothing, or a short outburst of crying about the past, or a vision of a sensual kiss in the future. It lasts as long as you have no concern for a world where there seems to be more than one.

To include everything does not mean you must stop to exclude. That would not be to include everything. You do not need to stop anything to undo the belief in separation. You simple include everything – also excluding.

No need to worry about getting it right. All that is needed for a moment to be perfect is to not be exclusive but inclusive – and you are automatically inclusive when not exclusive.

If this seems to be unsettling, include it, and you will see, that by including all parts of your experience of a world where everything seems to be different, their apparent difference makes no difference, and so the belief in separation, which is what makes you feel uncomfortable, is slowly being undone while you at the same time are enjoying this belief.

To include everything has nothing to do with the so-called union of soul, mind and body.** To believe in such concepts is just as illusionary, as to believe in any other concept based on the idea that it is possible to be or have more than that which is one. As it takes more than one to include something, this is of course also an illusion. Yet the illusion of inclusion is a way to use the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one yo undo that belief.

It is often easier to include somebody than the feelings they represent
If a feeling from the past
seems a little diffuse, it is often easier to include it by merely including those you blame for it in the present, or by including your body as it feels in this moment, as most unwanted thoughts and feelings are stored there, for example in the stomach until the pressure gets too high on the body, so you try to alleviate it by projecting it onto others – often those closest to you.

In other words, your body and those closest to you most likely are the most significant symbols of exclusion, so by including those symbols, you are way off on your way to undo the belief in separation. In the case of Alexius, his cats most certainly represent excluded sides of him, that seems a bit diffuse to him and therefore hard to include. Yet, it is easy to include his cats.

To include them is not the same as to love them, as you cannot love something unless it is perceived to be separated from you. From this follows, to love somebody is to exclude somebody. Yet this exclusion – just like any other, can be undone by including it.

If there is somebody you dislike, you do not need to change that, because when this is not justified, but simply included as it is, to like or dislike makes no difference.

It is all about inclusion
As already state Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not a new philosophy or religion with a new vocabulary and rules, that you must learn and strictly follow, so if you, for example, do not want to include your cats, feel free to exclude them. It does not matter, as long as you include your unwillingness to do this. In other words, exclusion is also fine – just remember to include it that you are exclusive … and should you forget that, well, include your forgetfulness.

Maybe inclusion does not seem to work for you. No problem. If it feels frustrating and as if something still is missing, you just include that.

Life is not exclusive but inclusive, so to not exclude is to uncover life. When exclusion is included, you do not exclude.

If you are unwilling to undo your belief in a world, where there appear to be more than one, you do not need to change that, because if you include your unwillingness you will also include your willingness, as like any other contrast they are like two sides of the same coin. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you are unwilling to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, you do not need to change that, because if you unwillingness is included, willingness is included as well, since two opposite sides of a contrast are like two sides of the same coin.

PART 2: To include something means that you do not exclude it by projecting it onto others and blame them for what is yours. Not that it actually is yours. Nothing is. Your appearance as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

Nobody has created Mickey Mouse, because he does not exist, neither does the world where he seems to live – even though there seems to be elements of reality in it.

Since what and where you believe to be is nothing but empty space, it is neither you or the world but the perception of it as something that is the problem in regard to seeing the illusion of it. This includes realising there is nobody perceiving it as something and realising it is nothing because hat calls for more than one and tthere is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

However, while you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, everything is yours – whether it appears to be inside or outside, so-called spiritual or mundane – because it is you who perceives the experience of it as real. That is why not excluding anything but including everything precisely as perceived undoes the belief in being what and where you perceive to be.***

Mickey Mouse looks very happy, but there is no happiness in him except for what you believe to be there.

A world where there seems to be more than one can be compared to a digitisied movie. Even though it consists of nothing but zeros and ones, you perception of it makes you forget what is real.

Do not worry if you are not willing to include everything. Unwillingness**** does not matter if not justified by others but included as yours. No need to worry either, if you are justifying unwillingness. The same that applies to unwillingness applies to justification. It makes no difference when included as yours.
