BM4 ++ The purpose of the duality hacks is not to heal the body but the belief that there is someone in it [draft]

Wishing to escape the world of duality reinforces the belief, that you are there. Fortunately, you are not there, nor anywhere else, because only in duality can you appear to be somewhere, and there is no duality since non-duality is formless and therefore endless. In other words, there is nothing to escape than the belief, that you are somewhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
When you drive a car, you do not interfere with its engine or in any way try to change how it works or looks. You just use the wheel, gear, gas and brake pedal, and trust the engine to take care of the rest itself.

You may never really see the body as it is, but instead, a vision of what it will feel and look like in the future when you have succeeded in imposing the unfortunate belief of a body-mind connection on it. See the hack ´No Body-mind Connection´, that you can find in Extra Duality Hacks.

But moving around in a body, you try to bypass its biological system so you can pump up the appearance of the body by forcing it into weird positions, to consume a special diet and other things that restrict it and make it impossible for its biological system to connect with the brain, which, therefore, cannot take care of it.

The purpose of the duality hacks is not to heal the body. It can most cases it takes care of itself when set free from your domination of it, which it is, the less you believe to be in charge but of service.

The application of one or more of the duality hacks fixes this connection. Not by healing the body but the foolish belief that it is part of you. Hence it becomes something like a coat you are wearing or a car you are driving. And just like a car works fine as long as it is connected with the engine and you supply it with water and gasoline, the body works great as long as the biological system connects it with the brain and you provide it with water and food, brush its teeth, wash it and sometimes take it for a ride.

There may, of course, be cases where particular parts of the body ask for special treatment. Perhaps they need to be massaged, or there is an inner organ which requires special care from professional healthcare services.

Most often though the body just wants to say, that it has no way of dealing with the feelings you hide from your awareness by dumping them in it. The body is made to deal with physicality, so unless you bring those feelings back into your emotional awareness and deal with them there, they will mess up the body.

Projecting unpleasant feelings on the body and expecting them to go away when the body is improved is like projecting feelings on your smartphone and expecting them to go away when the phone is repaired. Just like feelings cannot be mixed with the mechanic parts of a smartphone, they do not mix with the physical nature of a body.

The more you read about the duality hacks, the more they apply themselves. As you, therefore, are in a process of undoing the belief in being special, there is less need to dump those feelings in your body, that does not suit the special image you have made of yourself. Consequently, the body is not troubled with problems it cannot solve, so it has plenty of energy to fulfil its function, which is to make you feel good from physical activity.

Thoughts can be compared to the different parts of the body, the legs for example. They are not that which is you, but while appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, they are tools to make that appearance enjoyable.

The duality hacks do not undo the belief in being special by changing or stopping the thoughts of the brain. On the contrary. They are your friends. But the unfriendly perception of them fades out because when you are not a special but a basic self, you do not need to seek out specific thoughts and make others go away to fabricate a perception of yourself as special. Hence thoughts do not restlessly scamper about anymore.

This is brought about because the duality hacks lift you into a state of not-knowing, where all the perception out of sync with the thoughts of the brain disappears, as there is nobody to make them. So when you return from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive, it is as the basic self. You may go back and forth many times before you are not attempted to search for the promised land of the special self.

No worries. Each time you return from a state of not-knowing, the less you believe to be someone special, so the more you can enjoy just being basic.

In the enlightenment of that which is one, everything appearing to be more than one is gone, as if there never was something that appeared to hide, there is no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone, you can read how the empty breath immediately takes you to a state of not-knowing. If you want to learn that right away, skip reading this article and go straight to hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

And if you want to know what happens if you do not leave a state of not-knowing but remain there  for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, go to hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one and hack #5-7.3 The inner senses, enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

The two last hacks are about the enlightenment of that which is one, which does not lead to anything. In fact, it takes away everything, so there does not appear to be something hiding, there never was and never will be more than that which is one.

When the experience of something is not perceived to be real, the brains rendering of you as someone substantial in a tangible world is bypassed and the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome.

The above is not meant to imply, there are certain stages you need to go through to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. Alexius went straight to the enlightenment of that which is one. Yet he bounced back to the experience of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one before he reached the point of no return. See The ins and outs of a black hole or Nothing can stop you on Highway One except your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Alexius uses no techniques for being connected with the empty breath or having glimpses of enlightenment. It happens by itself when going with the flow. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In the experience of being someone in this world he changes between being the basic self, the special self and in a state of not-knowing. In the latter, he has glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which you can read about in hack #5-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can. Alexius uses no techniques for this himself. Yet he presents some techniques that can facilitate having glimpses of enlightenment. See the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment.

Being someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, he knows there is no more that which is one. Thus he is not longing to ´return to´ the formlessness of oneness, but enjoy pretending to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one – just like within the context of such a world he has fun pretending to be somebody in the virtual world of a game. See hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

When he has had his fun pretending to write Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, he most likely bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one with the purpose of not returning to a world where there seems to be more than one.

There is no extraordinary purpose for appearing to be or have a self, just like there is no purpose of pretending to be someone in a video game except for having fun pretending to be what you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

INTERLUDE:
Much energy is used to suppress specific thoughts and feelings by the special self, especially those judged as negative. This is necessary for preserving what it believes to be or will become when it lives in the now, come from the heart or whatnot. The basic self, however, has no need to appear in a particular way and therefore not motivated for suppressing anything – least of all negative energy.

Instinctively it knows, that if not for negative energy, it would not be able to see this, because the negative pole is just as needed as the positive one in a wire to produce the electricity that makes it possible for the computer it uses to display this article. Read more about that here.

PART 2:
The special self dissociates itself from unpleasant experiences by justifying them with the world. However, it is not aware, that though this diversion seems to make the disturbing experiences go away, they remain hidden in obscure parts of its body. Read more about that here.

Sooner or later the suppressed experiences stiffen or soften parts of the body, but no matter what medicine, nutritional supplements or massage that is used to heal the symptoms, they either remain or move, because the cause of the problem is not physical but mental. The imaginative issues that have been dumped in the body need to be taken back to the mental sphere where they were made, because only there can they be healed.*

This is not to say, that medicine, nutritional supplements or massage, for example, should be avoided. This can be a great way to tone down the symptoms, so you do not feel weighed down by them and therefore have more energy to face the problem where it is made.

In fact, nothing needs to be avoided. Restrictions do not bring relief but frustration. Still, being restrictive is not a problem, because if the frustration that it entails is perceived as it is, the uncontrolled energy of it ignites a take-off to the empty breath in which there is nobody to perceiving anything as a problem. See hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

If your phone is out-of-order and it seems to make you upset, having the phone fixed may appear to address the anger as well. But the phone has neither the power to make you angry or heal you. So even though the anger has disappeared from your awareness, it will return when something else triggers it, unless you deal with the phone and your fury separately, so both of the problems can be corrected on their own terms.

PART 3:
If physical symptoms of illness trigger memories of endangerment and those two elements are combined so that the physical symptoms are perceived to cause a threat, a fusion of the physical and mental reality is established. This psychosomatic disorder cannot be healed by the biological system of the body, because it is made to deal with physicality only. And as the mental sphere has no sense of physical reality, the use of mental powers does not heal the body but mess it further up.*

The paradox in trying to heal a psychosomatic disorder is that it reinforces the fear of the physical symptoms and thus the psychosomatic disorder.

If the experience of the physical symptom, on the other hand, is not combined with the memories of endangerment triggered by it, the symptom remains physical and the memories mental. The biological system, therefore, is free to deal with the physical symptom and leave the memories of danger to be dealt with in their mental sphere.

When the condition of the body is not perceived to be caused by emotional or mental problems, they do not seem to attest to the existence of the body and vice versa.

In other words, there is not something to confirm that you exist as someone definitive. Just like the world in a movie is not experienced to be real, if the emotions it seems to provoke are not perceived as being caused by it.

So instead of justifying an old fear of danger with a present physical symptom, you feel the danger to the extent that you are nothing but that. And as this leaves nothing to define what you feel, you do not feel anything specific and, therefore, neither are someone definitive. Consequently, nobody is left to worry about the physical symptoms, so there are no matters of mentality to prevent the biological system from starting a healing process.

Just like a strawn is built to deal with fluid and not solid things, the body is made to deal with physicality and not emotions or mental stuff. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To sum it up: When you appear to be sick and your concern about the physical symptom triggers a past sense of danger, that you interpret to be caused by present physical symptoms, you develop a psychosomatic disorder. But since body and mind cannot be fused, and the problem therefore is imaginative, no cure will work before the immaterial feeling is disentangled from the material symptom so each of the problems can be dealt with on their own term.*

When connected with the empty breath, material symptoms are automatically freed from the fear they may have triggered. Read hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing if you want to learn how to connect with the empty breath. And read the paragraph Surfing ´the empty breath´ to feel good regardless the state of the body in this article about how the empty breath makes you feel good regardless having vertigo and breath of shortness, for example.

EPILOGUE:
In a world where there seems to be more than one, you seem to be able to get rid off feelings by hiding them in the body and get them out by expressing them or heal the problem of suppressed emotions in the body by bringing them back into the mental sphere, as described above.

But as 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, nor does the world where you experience to be. So ultimately speaking there is nothing to heal than the belief, that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.** Fortunately, the duality hacks do that automatically if you go on reading them.
