The fake link between immateriality and materiality [DRAFT]

Those who think their body should be transformed and become more spiritual need to be more physical. The body is solely material. Hence it cannot be mixed with something immaterial. Therefore, the body-mind connection is a fantasy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thanks for passing by. Alexius is still in the process of exploring how to communicate this hack. Hence, you might be better off reading another one. But you are, of course, welcome to take your chances.

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from reading about the perception ´it is what it is.´ This perception makes you in tune with the brain’s script. Thus you feel satisfied. See hack #4.2 Being a self or no-self.

The assumed link between a problem in the psyche and the body, or vice versa, is a hallucination. Materiality and immateriality do not mix. Consequently, there is no psychosomatic disorder to heal but physical and psychological issues that must be dealt with in a material and immaterial way. This is a process over time. But it can be shortened by perceiving your opinion about the psychosomatic disorder as ´it is what it is

In this hack, we explore the different ways to undo the belief in a body-mind connection. But as always, in the case of a world where there seems to be more than one, it could have been better covered. However, the purpose of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not to present a complete explanation of how and why we appear to be somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, as we are not there or anywhere else, since it takes more than one to be somewhere, and there is no more than that which is one.

To turn the basic self into a special one, everything judged as embarrassing you exclude from the perception of yourself. The banned thoughts and feelings you hide from the awareness by combining them with physical feelings coming from weak or deformed parts of the body. Hence psychological feelings in the future are experienced as physical sensations. So when a suppressed psychological issue is triggered, you are not aware of it because you think your experience is physical.

No matter what medicine you take or the diet you follow to stop the discomfort in the body, an abstract feeling of pain remains, namely the psychological issue hidden in the physical experience of the body. This pain comes from the psyche, and it does not go away before it is dealt with in an immaterial way.

How can you claim to do things your own way when you do not know who you are? Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Although the clothes and the body wearing them seem to be closely related, they have no understanding of each other. The clothes have no love or anything else to give the body and vice versa. Likewise, immateriality and materiality have nothing to give each other. Their reality is too different. That is why psychologically concepts of how to attain physical wellness do not work.

Thinking you are in control, you are under enormous pressure. You must always look for thoughts that can be used to compose a perception of your experiences, so they seem to prove that you, not the brain, are in control.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The body is made to interact with structures that, like itself, is experienced to be material. That is why the body interprets your attempts to integrate it with non-physical feelings or ideas of spirituality as an attack on its integrity, which it must defend itself against.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To think that you can hide unpleasant feelings in the body is like thinking that you can hide them in a wall. Emotions are immaterial. Hence it is impossible to bury them in something material. However, it is possible to believe that this can be done. If you do that, you look at the body to find hidden problems, even though physical problems consist of nothing but material elements, and the hidden issues are in your perception of them.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You will never find anything physical in the digital world. Likewise, you will never find something physical in the psychological sphere or vice versa. That is why the concept of a body-mind connection is a scam.

Non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you want to make them last, you must combine them with something more lasting, like physical feelings. Immateriality and materiality, however, do not mix, so the combination of them is purely speculative. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The nature of non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you experience a specific one to be sticky, it is not due to them but to you. Maybe you an emotion to last, which you achieve by combining it with a part of the body.

If it is an exceptional experience of love you want to keep, you combine it with a pleasant physical feeling in the heart, for example. But if it is a particular memory of hate you want to hold onto, you link it with pain in the chest. However, just like a wall cannot contain the wind, it is impossible to fuse a body with abstract feelings. Yet, it is possible to mentally blend physicality and psychology so that every time you feel a specific kind of love, you think you feel something nice in the heart. And every time you feel hatred towards someone, you sense something weird in the chest.

Since you, therefore, feel something in the heart or chest that is not there, you have a problem believed to be in the body, which cannot be addressed. That is until you split this psychosomatic disorder into a material and immaterial issue, so you can deal with each one on its own term. In this case, you confront why you need to hold onto a specific feeling of love or hate. Then you consult a doctor to see if the heart is the problem. But most likely, it is the muscles.

However, most people do not want to wipe out the idea of a body-mind connection. On the contrary, they want to uphold their imagined union of immaterial and material issues as real, as then it seems possible to appear as if they have a feeling they do not have. Should this feeling be questioned, they refer to the bodily symptoms they claim is caused by that feeling. They love talking about body-mind connection because that makes it look like they are in control of themselves, even though they do not know who they are.

If you want to undo the imagined combination of immateriality and materiality, a willingness to not remember what and where you imagine being is all that is required. When being nobody is acknowledged, there is no need to make feelings last to define you as somebody.

When you have combined a psychological feeling with a physical one, you want this combo to hide or prolong the psychological feeling. Therefore, since you need the part of the body from where you get the physical feeling to remain as it is, you resist healing it. That is until you do not have a need to hide or prolong the psychological feeling you imagine to have hidden there.

Should this split-up of a psychosomatic issue seem problematic, you perceive your reaction to a feeling in the body that seems not only factual but also abstract as ´it is what it is.´ This renders your response indefinable. Thus the body is set free from your opinion, so it can outline the physical part of the combo and heal it in agreement with that. Since a psychological feeling only is sticky if manipulated into oblivion or something lasting, this part of the combo returns to its temporary nature and passes on when looked at.

When we project the weaknesses of our personality onto the way we feel vulnerable parts of the body, such as the stomach, our perceived flaws seem to have been erased from our awareness. That is how we fool ourselves into believing we have been transformed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Healing the psychological part of a psychosomatic combo takes no time. All psychological feelings are fleeting, so they pass on when looked at. The physical part, you deal with by stepping back so the body can heal itself without having to live up to your expectations of wellness and wholeness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You exclude from your awareness what you do not like about yourself by imagining you combine it with the feeling of a vulnerable part of the body. Thus your psychological problems seem to be hidden inside a bodily problem.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

For years there has been an unhealthy idea about uniting body, mind and soul with you as the master of the combo. Unfortunately, this approach has done much harm to the body. First of all, you are not the master of your appearance – only the perception of it. Secondly, the body is a physical unit built to deal with material matters and not mental, emotional or metaphysical ones – like the digital media where you read, this is made to deal with the digital world and not the physical one.

In other words, you cannot blend immateriality with materiality. However, you can imagine doing it and that your psychological problems, therefore, are buried in the body. But it only knows physical issues, so it feels attacked by something unknown when you attempt to dump psychological problems in the body. Hence it shoots off here and there. And you end up with psychosomatic disorders that cannot be healed until you are willing to bring back the psychological issues to the immaterial sphere.

Doing that may at first seem like you are going insane or being tortured. No worries, as long as you do not edit the unpleasantness, it will not remain for long because the nature of psychological feelings is to pass on when looked at unedited. Read more about this process in You undo the belief in duality by enjoying it, Part 1. When the psychological issues have vanished, you do not have psychosomatic disorders but physical issues. Fortunately, the body is an expert in dealing with physical problems. Should it need assistance from a health care professional, it will let you know.

When you see a scary movie, it is experienced to be real because it feels like the fear manifests in your body. The film, however, does not have the ability to scare you and what you feel in the body is purely physical. It is not caused by the events in the movie but by because you perceive them to be so frightening that you tighten up the body.

You perceived them like that because you are conditioned to interpret certain things as scary. And to make it real that this is what you feel, you project the idea on a body part that already is tense and seems to get tenser when you give it your attention. Thus it feels as if it is the movie has an effect on your body.

Sometimes, it goes the other way around. You have a stomach ache, but it does add meaning to your life. So you imagine, the pain is caused by a psychological issue from your past. Unfortunately, this perceived combination results in a psychosomatic disorder that is incurable – especially because the psychological part most likely is made up. Hence there is nothing to heal but the belief that there is someone who has conditioned itself to feel this.

Being in the natural state of happiness does not mean that apparently negative things do not happen. You might think it is too hot, for example, but since you perceive your reaction to this experience as ´it is what it is,´ your response makes it just as entertaining to be hot as cool.

It does not rain because you feel sad, nor does the rain has the power to make you feel bad. That is unless you choose to perceive such a course and effect. Likewise, the body cannot make you feel sad, nor does feeling sad makes the body terrible unless you imagine such a connection.

The body does not want to be used as a means to manifest mental ideas of being balanced, centred or connected with higher consciousness, so it fights your abuse of it by tightening itself.

Therefore, the tensions in the body can only be healed when you withdraw your mental assault on the body. This is done by perceiving your reaction to the violation of the body as ´it is what it is´. Since that takes the power of your misguidance, you cannot help but laugh. You may also cry. But that is how it should be, as everything in a world of duality comes in pairs.

This makes you feel complete but maybe also silly because you are not pushing the body to the extremes anymore to feel young and more unique. But then again, since everything comes in pairs, silliness is complemented with wisdom. Thus you feel insightful even though you are not unique.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To prevent feelings in the body from being processed by the brain, part of the body is desensitised by perceiving it to be connected with mental ideas of balance and whatnot. If this benumbing is in the upper part of the neck, the flow between the body and the brain is cut off. Thus you can decide what the body wants and process it as if there is a body-mind connection.

But there is no such combination. On the contrary, the body is material and sees immaterial ideas as an attack on its integrity. Thus, it fights them by continually keeping the shoulders backwards or forward to hold the body in a mode of attack or defence. On top of that, it might lock the hips and/or the loin to balance the upper body’s issues with others in the lower part.

Whatever way it works out, you hold onto it because, as already said, these tensions disrupt the natural flow of communication between the body and the brain, so you can bypass the biological system and impose the body with your mental ideas of wellness.

In this way, the body is used to establish the belief that you are in charge. The body suffers from this egoism, and so do you because believing to be in control, you are out of sync with your nature, which is to serve the brain like a self-driving car follows The Cloud.

You are nothing without the brain, except in your own imagination of being an independent being. But this idea does not change anything other than your perception is not aligned with the brain, wherefore you do not notice the happiness the brain reserves for its creations.

It may, at first, seem dangerous not having the body in a position of defence or attack. But since the basic self perceives everything as ´it is what it is,´ it is in sync with the brain and thus continiously injected with shots of happiness. Consequently, any kind of feeling, whether seen as positive or negative, is amusing.

Regarding the duality hacks, it does not matter how you have mistreated your body to uphold a perception of being its master. The hacks bring you into a state of not-knowing in which the slate is wiped clean, so when you return to the consciousness of being someone, you are the basic self. And since it perceives every reaction it has to something as ´it is what it is,´ it is in sync with the brain and, therefore, in the happiness that comes from being aligned with its maker.
