How to not be fearful but blissful

It requires much effort to be exclusive, whereas inclusiveness requires none because you are inclusive when you are not exclusive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PREFACE:
The more beauty you look for, the more ugliness you will be exposed to because beauty cannot be defined without ugliness. That is how it is when you believe to be in a world of duality. It can only be experienced through contrasts.

Fortunately, contrasts can also be used to undo the belief in duality. When beauty is completely included by being nothing but beautiful, there is not something to contrast what you are. Therefore, since you are nobody, there is not somebody to judge the apparently different appearances in the world that seem to be outside of to be either beautiful or ugly. Thus you are in the bliss of nothing.

HOW TO NOT BE FEARFUL BUT BLISSFUL:
When a feeling, for example hate, is wholly justified with something in a world experienced to be outside of you, it seems to be transferred from what is believed to be you to something that is not thought to be you. This includes love because when hate cannot be experienced internally, neither can its contrast love. In other words, hate and love do not seem to be in you but a world outside of you.

But as these emotions only are excluded from your awareness, they are still in you. Not in the shape of hate and love, though but of fear, because having justified hatred with something in an external world, you are scared of what it will do to you in return. Hence, from the emptiness generated by your apparent dissociation from hate/love, fear pops up again and again.

Exclusiveness generates a belief in scarcity, contrary to inclusiveness that generates nothing. Therefore, since there is not something to miss, you are in a pool of bliss.

Emptiness, however, is also the result of the full inclusion of hate, since that leaves nothing to contrast love, so neither that nor hatred is experienced to exist at all. This emptiness, however, is not full of fear but bliss, as it is not based on the suppression of feelings but the transparency of exposing them as empty space.

Inclusiveness is pure bliss. That is, if everything excluded is not included, because when everything is included, there is nothing but the formlessness of that which is one, since it takes more than one to be blissful. In other words, by slowly including what has been excluded from your personality, moments of bliss will come and go in a world where there seems to be more than one, until there is no more to include and therefore not something to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

In this state of emptiness, everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is perceived as empty space in the sense that nothing seems to make sense. As it is a state of not-knowing, you cannot know how long you are in it. But measured in the linear time, it is not that long – at least not if you want to appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, as then everything must constantly be perceived to make a difference.

You want to believe, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, so you imagine there is world outside of the formlessness of that which is one, where there ios more than one. But there is nothing outside of oneness since irt is formless and therefore endless. Nor is there something inside, as without an outside there is no inside.

When returning to the imagination of a world where there seems to be more than one, it is as if empty space is being filled with clouds. The more they are divided in contrasts like good and bad, light and dark, past and future and so on, the more you appear to be in a substantial world where there seems to be more than one.

Although the world appears to be just like before you entered a state of not-knowing, you are approaching it less emotionally. This does not mean there are no emotions, but that you play with them instead of them playing with you. That may offend a lot, but that is not a problem because the more you are inclusive, the less there is a need to be part of a world where there seems to be more than one.

In most cases, though, hate is not entirely but partially excluded so that a piece of it can be used to contrast a bit of love and thereby ratify the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one. Just like the white background of these black letters is partially excluded to contrast the letters shaping this article into an article appearing to be in front of you.

The less the opposing elements of a contrast appear to make a difference, the less they produce meaning – and since bliss does not come from something but nothing, the more bliss there is.

On the other hand, if the background is completely excluded, there is not something to contrast the letters. Hence they disappear in a gap of nothingness, which seems very scary for those seeking meaning and consistency, but very blissful for those seeking nothing.

You cannot enjoy a beautiful view like this if you do not experience something ugly to contrast it. That is the way of duality. But if you fully include one side of this contrast, both of them will be cancelled out inside of you so that there is no basis for perceiving the difference of beauty and ugliness in a world outside of you to make a difference.* Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The full inclusion of a feeling requires that it is totally felt internally. But as hate, which is the example used in this article, has been completely excluded from what you believe to be by justifying it with something perceived to be outside of you, you have dissociated yourself from not only hate but also its contrast love plus a bunch of other emotions since the dissociation of the contrast of hate and love rubs off on others.

This results in emotional numbness, where only the fear or anger of the external appearance(s) used to justify the feeling of hate seems to come through. No worries. If you are nothing but that fear and/or anger, there is no room for the justification and the hate it seemed to transfer to an external world, so it is not experienced to exist inside or outside of you. The same applies to love since there is no hate contrasting it.

As the resulting emptiness is not founded on exclusion but inclusion, it is not fear but bliss that pops up from it.

A sure way to not exclude but include is to not know what is going on, as that means there is not something to exclude.

If you, by reflex, exclude specific feelings as soon as they pop up, and at the same moment forget why and how no need to change that. And should the above about including your justifications seem a bit too complicated, no need to improve your understanding or anything else.

Alexius´ Duality Hacks are not about undoing mistakes in a world where there seems to be more than one, but the belief that that there is more than that which is one.

In other words, whatever you seem to be in a world where there seems to be more than one needs no correction – only the belief that you are someone definitive and not the formlessness of that which is one needs to be corrected. And that it is when you include entirely what you experience to be in this very moment.

When you cannot remember what you included, it has been completely included.

Willingness to include the moment unfiltered undoes the belief in being someone definitive. This willingness, however, nobody has, but by admitting that, you are including the moment as it is. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you are not aware of what you are at this moment, this is what you include by completely being it, which you are when there is a willingness to be so.

As this willingness cancels out the included feeling as well as its contrast, and like the inclusion of one feeling momentary rubs off on others, the result is not that you embrace yourself, but that you are emptied out and therefore not definable as someone definitive. It is this emptiness that is pure bliss.

The willingness, however, often comes from being willing to admit, that you are not willing to be completely inclusive because even though it results in pure bliss, it is the end of you as someone definitive since bliss is the absence of being someone at all.

APPENDIX:
If you think, you are in a joyful mood because of the sunset or the sensation of the wind touching your warm body, you are justifying the feeling of joy and thereby dissociating yourself from it in proportion to how much it is justified to be caused by something perceived to be outside of you.

This you probably choose to distance yourself from being too joyful, because that would blow you away, so there would be nobody left to control your appearance as sexy and good-looking in the sunset – or in the future setups you have planned to be staged in as someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one.

In other words, the imagination of being someone definitive seems more exciting than the peace of formlessness, which cannot be imagined, neither experienced, since it takes more than one to imagine or experience something and what is formless cannot be more than one.

But as formlessness is endless and therefore everything, whatever is imagined or experienced, is make-believe. Hence there is nothing to plan or hope for but illusions.


NOTES:

 

When the apparent separation between the opposing sides of a contrast is undone via the full inclusion of one of them, the judge in you is out of work, as without separation, there is nothing to judge – and that is pure bliss. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Bliss is the natural outcome of not believing to be someone definitive. This you do not believe when the excitement of feeling something specific is not appealing.<<reð

When the contrast of noise and silence has been cancelled out by completely including one side of the contrast, the apparent difference in a world of duality between noise and silence is not perceived to make a difference because you are in a state of not-knowing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

 

The absence of noise and silence is a state of not-knowing

PART 1:
When your lower back is sway-backed, the body makes a contrast in the upper back, so whether you fully include the pain of the lower or upper back is the same, because the inclusion of one side of a contrast cancels out both of them. Thus the apparent difference between the opposing sides of this contrast does not appear to make a difference anymore.

As the inclusion of one contrast momentarily rubs off on other contrasts, they are cancelled out as well. And as what you appear to be is defined by contrasts, there is hardly anything to define you as someone definitive. Ergo you are in a state of not-knowing. This does not necessarily mean that pain is over, but that there is nobody suffering from it. That is if the pain was not a symptom of a mental problem.

If you get rid of non-physical problems by dumping them in the body, and if you manage to heal the symptoms this seems to entail, it only appears so because the symptoms have moved to another place in the body. You can, therefore, keep on healing symptoms in the body until you approach the problem where it is, namely in the psychological sphere.

INTERLUDE:
For example, a mental problem can be that you try to restrict your sexual energy in accordance with specific concepts of society or yoga doctrines like tantra. Still, your mental control of sexuality will settle in the body in the shape of muscle pain sooner or later. See also the article Holding back to not ejaculate is just another physical manifestation – but without the thrill of it.
But it is not easy to spot a problem in the mind, as it is probably hidden behind the noise of arguing about this and that. No worries. It is not necessary to pick out the problem. You just hack through the noise of the mind by completely including it, which is done by being nothing but noise – or at least be willing to (see the last paragraph in the below note about willingness). As this means there is nothing to contrast it, the existence of noise is no more, neither of its contrast silence.

However, this you do not know because the cancellation of the opposing elements of one contrast in the mind momentarily rubs off on the others, so the mind is empty and therefore not able to define you as someone definitive. In other words, you are in a state of not-knowing and its bliss of nothing.

See the article The function of ´the empty breath´ is to ignore egoism and check Take-offs into ´the empty breath´ if you want to connect with it straight away.
