Enlightenment of that which is one cannot be known, but glimpses of it can

People have very strange ideas about what the enlightenment of that which is one is. Some think it is a process, that it is zen, to be pure love or consciousness or to see though all illusions. But to in a process, see or be something requires you to believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, and where there is more than one, there is no enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Most of those writing or talking about the enlightenment of that which is one try to give the impression, that they know what it is, so if you have chosen to believe their so-called knowledge, you may dismiss the enlightenment of that which is one, if it hits you, because it has nothing to do with anything anybody claim to know. Enlightenment of that which is one is formless so it cannot be described or defined. If you try, you will remain as someone definable, and so it is not possible to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

In other words, if somebody refers to experiences of enlightenment, it is not the enlightenment of that which is one, because it cannot be experienced. Yet it might be glimpses of it because just like you can use your senses to experience a world that appears to be outside of you, you can turn them inwards in order to experience a world with glimpses of enlightenment.

If you tend to sense the world in an auditory way, turning the senses inwards may not reveal visual glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one but auditory ones, so instead of a revelation of light, it is a revelation of ethereal harmonies. Just like the outer senses also can feel and taste, so can the inner ones.

In other words, there are the same different ways to experience the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, as there are to experience the world when senses are partly turned inwards. If they are fully turned inwards, the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome. This is not an experience though, as it takes more than one to experience something.

A staircase seems to make you feel, that there is something on top to be experienced.

A staircase seems to make you feel, that there is more on top of it so that if you go there, you feel you are experiencing more and therefore are more alive. But in reality, you cannot be more alive, as life is that which is one and it takes more than one to be more alive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The purpose of feelings is to make something feel as if it is tangible. But that which is you is not tangible, as it is the formlessness of oneness, and it takes more than one to feel something. Consequently what is felt is an illusion.

In other words, in reality, it is not possible to feel anything at all. Likewise, there is not something to experience in reality – or rather, there is no difference between the experiencer and the experienced. They are one. Consequently, the enlightenment of that which is one can neither be felt or experienced. It is, that which is.

When the sun is shining strong and bright it reveals, if my windows are well cleaned or not – it reveals all the things, I normally do not see. This is contrary to the light of the enlightenment of that which is one. Although it can be said to be brighter than thousands of suns, it reveals nothing. There is not anything to see and no need to see something. Not because it fulfils you, but because you as someone definable is no more. There is nothing but the light of that which is one.

So many claims to know to know the way to that which is one, but none of them goes there. Could it be because they are still trying to heal, fix and improve what they believe to be instead of undoing the belief in being someone at all?

When that is undone there is not someone to go to that which is one. Thus no way is needed.

Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has vague memories of it, whereas others have nothing but speculations.

To be in the world and not of it does not mean, the world looks more dreamy, transparent or lucid. The world is a concept, that always looks the same, unless you do not change the concept via for example drugs or Photoshop like in the case of this pic. To not be of the world is like, – within this context of the world – that when you play a game like Monopoly, you know, you are in it but not of it.

The enlightenment of that which is one does not change anything – except that you know, the world is pure fiction. This includes also ideas of god, love, higher self, ego and you name it. Well, enlightenment also it makes it easier to live in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Because when you know none of it is real – neither you as a person in it – there is no need for questions or answers. You are free to step on it and play the game of pretending to be a person ´there´.* Someone once put it more or less like this: To be in the world and not of it.

You cannot know the enlightenment of that which is one, and that is why hardly anybody is enlightened. They try so hard to know and understand – and so they fail, because in regards to the enlightenment of that which is one everything you seem to know is wrong!

The unenlightened likes to teach others the way to enlightenment, but the enlightened knows there is no way.

Books and lectures may seem to provide some understanding about the enlightenment of that which is one, but the more you think you understand, the further away you are from it. The same applies if you think you understand it after reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. They are not meant to be understood, but to help you to unlearn everything, you have learned.

The enlightened does not care to appear spiritual or anything else, as to be something requires more than one. But to the unenlightened it is very important appearing to be spiritual, so even though the enlightened and the unenlightened knows just as much about the enlightenment of that which is one, namely nothing, the unenlightened show off as if knowing so much.

You cannot bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one by wanting it, but by not wanting to be of the world. It erases everything you know so that there is literally nothing left for the light to carry through a black hole into that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one does not result in something. It has absolutely no effect, as that would require more than one.

Just the smallest definitions of the enlightenment of that which is one break it up in specific elements that each has a beginning and end – and as it cannot be broken, you have fabricated another illusion to fence it off. So do yourself a favour: Forget all that you think, you just read. Forget, what and where you believe to be, so that there is no belief blocking out the enlightenment of that which is one.

When the sun shines on a window, it reveals many things, that one may not have seen before. The enlightenment of that which is one reveals nothing. It does not shed its light on anything, as that requires more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings presents no definition of the enlightenment of that which is one, as it is not of the world a world where there seems to be more than one, and therefore cannot be figured out. There is not someone definable in the enlightenment of that which is one, so there is nobody to picture it.

Nobody sees it. Yet if you return to a world where there seems to be more than one as a visually minded person, you may have vague memories of a light brighter than thousands of suns as it is described in the Bhagavad Gita. Neither is there anybody hearing it, but if you are an audio minded person, you may have vague memories of ethereal harmonies with sounds that can be compared to bells and harps. See the article What sort of external music resembles the internal one.

And even though there is nobody to feel the enlightenment of that which is one you may as an emotional minded person have vague memories of a feeling that can be compared to the sensation of thousands of bubbly Coca Colas mixed into one bubble. This is actually what the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises. Also, it is not something you taste. Yet there may be vague memories of thousands of smoothies mixed into one taste of milk and honey with a hint of strawberries or liquorice.

As the enlightenment of that which is one is what undoes the belief that there is more than one, it is not mixing its different aspects, but using the one that is most appealing to you, so do not fight it when all the thoughts collected to witness you as someone definitive is extracted and the nothingness of you is sucked into that which is one.

Society, in general, prefers visual effects and consequently the visual aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one is the most known. However, the other aspects of it are just the same in the sense that they all are ways to make it attractive for you to not focus something definable but follow the flow into the formlessness of that which is one. Whatever aspect of enlightenment is revealed to you depends on your preferences in daily life. None of the aspects though are in themselves the goal. There is no goal because there is no more than that which is one.

Please be aware, that if for example somebody has never seen a carrot, and it is described as having a colour like a colourful sunset, this does not mean, a carrot has anything to do with as a sunset. It is common sense.

But when it comes to the enlightenment of that which is one most seem to forget common sense and make strange conclusions, so to spell it out: Any description of the enlightenment of that which is one in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, is just that, namely a description. And like a carrot is not a sunset, the visual aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one in a light brighter than thousands of suns, but the intensity of it can be compared to that.


*) One way to not be of the world is to pretend to be ´there´, because where you pretend to be, you are not. Read about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.
