Phasing out the belief in the personality or not

Everything can be used to enhance the belief in being someone definitive but everything can also be used to undo it. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Everything can be used to enhance the belief in being the personality. Yet it can also be used to undo this belief, and contrary to enhancing it, this is not hard work, because it does not require the involvement of the personality. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Any experience in a world defined by time and space can be used to enhance the personality you believe to have or to phase it out this belief. If you for example after having read Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings conclude, that by avoiding something in particular you will be more happy, the non teachings has not been used to phase out the personality but to enhance it, as it is defined by what you exclude from it.

If you on the other hand have the same conclusion but use hack#3 Not being exclusive but inclusive to include what you have concluded should be excluded, there is less to define the personality. Hence the belief in it as real is not being enhanced but phased out.

Science states that the world, we seem to see and feel, consists of 99.9999999 percent empty space. The rest, despite it is also empty space and just like a dream consists of nothing substantial, is what we perceive as elements of matter making up the appearance of ourselves in a world defined by time and space.

In other words, the experience of a material world and us as somebody tangible separated by time and space is make-believe.

The experience of time and space in this image is an illusion. There is nothing substantial in it, unless you choose to believe so. In fact a digital image like this consists of nothing but zeros and ones. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Those who are interested in the discoveries of science probably know, that the personality as well as the body, where it seems to be, is nothing but empty space, and that it only appears to be substantial, because more or less everybody, who seem to be in a world defined by time and space collectively agree to believe this.

Since that which is one is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. Thus to meditate and whatnot in order to unite with it is an illusion based on the misunderstanding that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

In other words, as there is nobody in a world defined by time and space we can never be at one there except in the denial of that which is real, namely oneness, which we execute by agreeing, that we all have a unique personality, that seems to separate us from each other. This includes those considering themselves to be spiritual, as by doing so they separate themselves from those not considered spiritual.

In order for you to be defined as a spiritual, you exclude what is not considered to be spiritual from your personality by projecting it onto others. Being defined as spiritual, however, you are bound to be bothered by those considered not to be spiritual, whereas not being defined, nothing bothers you, because there is no ´you´.

Most so-called spiritual ways are nothing but sophisticated methods to have the brain piece together a new personality, so you seem to be more spiritual than before. In other words, the belief in you being the personality is enhanced and not phased out by appearing to be more spiritual.

The more you appear to have, the heavier life appears to be. The same applies to the more you appear to not have. Having something or not, however, is only be a problem, when you believe to be a person in a world where there seems to be more than one. But there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, so it is not possible to be someone at all – except in a fantasy. And as there cannot be problems in a fantasy world unless you believe the fantasy is real, the solution to problems in a world where there seems to be more than one is to undo this belief.

More is the mantra of the personality. Having a haircut, for example, you become more beautiful at the expense of those you judge not to have the right look. Being promoted you appear to be more important and thus to shine in the darkness of those you despise. Making more money you believe to be more clever and powerful than the ones you exploit. Becoming more spiritual, you appear to be more wise at the expense of those you pray for, send healing and whatnot.

And you certainly make sure that everybody judged to be wrong are excluded from your world of the righteous ones.

But as the personality is based on the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, it can never get enough, and as it is kept together by excluding what it does not want to be, it is constantly worried about what to exclude in order to be good enough and not be excluded itself.

When not excluding anything, however, the personality does not appear to be definable. And as that leaves nothing to sustain the belief that you are someone definitive, there is nobody to hunt for more. Thus everything is good enough as it is.

In each our own way we exclude everything from our personality, that we believe to be negative by judging something or somebody perceived to be outside of us as bad. Thus our condemnation of others shape us into what we believe to be.

This is not to say, that in order to phase out the belief in the personality being you, judging others must be stop. On the contrary. By judging others you see right in front of you, what you do not like in yourself (see the article The YOU finger and the three ME fingers).

Thus you know what to include to have the belief in being the personality phased out, namely to include what you believe others to be, since that leaves nothing to define you.

What you pretend to be, think feel and do, you are not, so by pretending to be someone definitive, nobody is becoming more important no matter what you appear to think, feel and do. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you do not believe to be what you seem to think, feel and do, nobody becomes more special regardless what you appear to think, feel and do. A way to not believe, that you are what you seem to think feel and do is to pretend that you are what you seem to think feel and do, because what you pretend to be, you are not.* The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The belief in being the personality can be enjoyed while having it phased out, if being exclusive in order to keep the personality intact is something you pretend to be, because what you pretend to be you are not.* Thus you have fun appearing to be the personality, while the belief that there is such a thing is being phased out.

The same applies, if every experience – including the experience of you being a specific personality – is perceived to symbolise the formlessness of oneness, because that means your apparent different experiences will not be judged to make a difference.** Neither will the state of your personality, and so you can have fun appearing to be anybody you like – just like on the internet.

When you always pretend to be exclusive or perceive that exclusiveness is a symbol of oneness, everything appears to be fine, so if you start to feel irritated, you probably failed to remember the application of these duality hacks either in the present moment or the past.

As consciousness always is selective, you can arrange your conscious memories, so that what you remember is that you always have been pretending to be exclusive or seeing exclusiveness as a symbol of oneness. Hence the belief in being the personality is not being enhanced but phased out.

Should it be in the present moment you forget to apply the duality hacks, you can correct it by pretending that you are irritated or by seeing irritation as a symbol of oneness. And if it was in the past, it is never too late to adjust your memories (see the article It is never too late to get a happy childhood), so they reflect that you always pretend to be exclusive or perceive exclusiveness to be a symbol of oneness. Hence the belief in being the personality is not enhanced but phased out.

If you are not in touch with the past, you do not need to spend time on a trip down memory lane,*** but to pretend there is no past or perceive it as a symbol of oneness. And yes you are right in case you feel like cheating. But you are cheating no matter how you perceive a world defined by time and space, because it is nothing but empty space. So why not cheat in a way, that undoes the belief in being a person there.

Any other duality hack (see the table of contents, extra duality hacks and more duality hacks) can be used to phase out the belief in being the personality,**** so that there is nobody left to feel anything but bliss – provided that the purpose of using them is to not enhance the belief in being the personality but to phase it out, as bliss is the result of no personality. Not in the sense that it must be undone, but that the belief in it momentarily needs to be undone.

If not momentarily but forever undone, there is nobody to know, that you ever imagined to be someone in empty space, because there is no room for what you believed to be in that which is one, since it is formless and you believed to be substantial. This is not to say, that what you believed to be has been transformed, as there was nothing to transform, but that this belief has been undone.

When excluding what you do not like to feel by justifying it with others, the appearance of your personality can be controlled, so that you for example appear to be a hipster. Exclusion though is not an one-off thing. It is hard work to constantly be on the lookout for something to exclude, that can confirm your status as a hipster. Inclusion on the other hand requires nothing but not to exclude, which becomes so much  easier the more you do not exclude, as the less there is to define a personality, and therefore nobody to care about what it appears to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.
