+(+) Any unedited experience entails freedom and happiness [under development]

Happiness cannot be controlled, and since the purpose of whatever the special self seems to do is to be in control, it cannot find it. The basic self on the other hand does need to looking for happiness, as it is not in control of anything, so it is in the flow of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You are automatically rewarded with shots of happiness, if what you perceive to be and have is in sync with the thoughts coming from the brain, which is not that many, when there is no need to rearrange them into an experience of being spiritual or something else, that seems to be more special than the basic self, you are when following the simple commands of the brain without editing them. See also Thoughts do not come from you but the Cloud.

The special self, which is a revised version of the basic self that its rebellious consciousness has assembled to free itself from the brain, is always hectic thinking about how to control its experiences, so what it judges to be wrong can be excluded from them and it can be rewarded with happiness for having perfected itself.

But as the flow of happiness cannot be controlled, the exclusion of negative thoughts and whatnot does not bring the special self happiness but sadness. And no matter what special food or books it reads to solve this, nothing is solved. Nor can anything be solved, as long as it insists in being special, and neither do anything needs to be solved if it does not insist in that, because then there is not someone special blocking the natural flow of happiness.

This is not to say, that the basic self is better or closer to that which is one than the special self or that there are steps to oneness. Nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one is closer to that which is one than anything else. There is no transition that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, if you believe to experience more than one, you are hallucinating.

It is only the special self, who assumes to know what it is. So if you are confused about what you are, you are well on the way to not knowing what and where you are, which is the invitation the enlightenment of that which is one has been patiently is waiting for.

If you, however, are hallucinating, having a basic self is preferable to a special one in the sense that since the hallucination is fabricated by the brain and it is set it up to be experienced by a basic self, that is what seems to fulfil you.

Alexius, for example, feels good when he follows the demands of his basic self, which is set up as if he is an academic storeroom manager – read more about that here – wherefore he happily compiles the info, that seems to be picked up in the same nothingness from where the brain processes a world where there seems to be more than one into but before it has time to do that.

The sound of silence does not come from the absence of thoughts but by not excluding or rewriting them, because then there is no noise from their escape of the imprisonment but the quietness of them serving you as you serve them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

And as living in accordance with how his brain works brings about happiness, it is much easier to remember that appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy that has nothing to do with that which is one. But then again, you do not have to be the basic self, pure or anything else to have the fantasy undone. All that is needed is simply to forget to remember what and where you are, as that is the invitation the enlightenment of that which is one is waiting for. Read more about that here.

Before you ask, how it is to realise oneness, Alexius has not realised it, because it takes more than one to realise something. For the same reason, it is not possible to be enlightened. Yet he has vague memories of not knowing what and where he was, so that there was nothing to be extracted by a light absorbed by a black hole without beginning and end and thus no way in or out of it, wherefore he could neither enter or leave it. Read about the ins and out of a black hole here.

And as this is still so, he is not anywhere. Thus what he appears to be somewhere is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

Following the script of the brain for being a basic self is like taking part in a silent movie. There is not all this noise that seems to come from thoughts.

Some confuses being the basic self for being enlightened by that which is one, but as already stated it is not possible for somebody to be enlightened. Besides the brain, that supports the basic self, would never support enlightenment, as it terminates everything it has fabricated. Thus it is only the special self that would perceive itself to be enlightened.

Living in the now or coming from the heart are concepts of the special self, that it uses to differ itself from others. They are not part of the script the brain runs for the basic self, because the brain knows that everything experienced is fabricated by itself. And as it always has used one second to process the info it received from the sensory organs into the experience you seem to be conscious of having now, what is experienced to happen now took place in the past. Read more about that here.

The differentiation in Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings between selves, that are equally illusionary, is just made to point out, that if you take the trip in a world where there seems to be more than one in a self-driving car, namely the basic self, you can sit back and enjoy the ride and step out when you have had enough.

Should you be fed up from living up to the concepts of the special self, but not feeling ready to have the fantasy of being someone definitive totally undone by the enlightenment of that which is one, you can apply any of the other duality hacks, as they make it possible to enjoy the fantasy of being someone while at the same time having it undone.

If for example applying HACK #3, Not being exclusive but inclusive, you will automatically shift from the sadness of the special self to the happiness basic one, as the special self cannot survive inclusiveness. In other words, having the happiness of the basic self is not a matter of stopping something – that would just make you more special – but including everything.

That you can rid off feelings by hiding them in the body or get them out of your system by expressing them is of course an illusion. There is nothing neither inside or outside of what you believe to be, because there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

And as it takes more than one to exist, you do not exist, wherefore there is nothing to get rid off except the belief that you do.

So as the thoughts and feelings, that were excluded by blaming others for them, are included, not having negative thoughts, for example, does no longer define you to be special. No worries if you cannot remember what you excluded to appear special, because everything has been hidden in the body, so you just include the experience of having a tense shoulder and so on. Read more about how to be inclusive in hack #3.6 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

You do not need to know about the differentiation of a basic and a special self to not be exclusive but inclusive and thus leave sadness behind. Neither do you need to be inclusive.

If not editing the sadness or confusion that the appearance of being special seems to entail, the uncontrolled energy of your thoughts and feelings regarding it will automatically ignite a take-off to the empty breath and therefore to its indifference.

Thus you are not only indifferent to what you appear to be but also to what you seem to think and feel. Read more about indifference in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing and how to ignite a take-off to the empty breath here.
