The transparency of bliss comes from not-knowing [draft]

Though new agers believe, that a world where there seems to be more than one is unholy, they worship special people and places in it as if they are holy and not an illusion. This is like believing the most exciting part of a movie is real. It is all make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings come to him as ethereal harmonies. And it is not before he hums along, that the words of
a song of how to undo the belief in being someone definitive rapidly and unorganised are typed on his computer.

When Alexius asks the source of the ethereal harmonies, which he has named Gudruång,** if a specific song is finished, there is no answer. This could be because it takes more than one to answer and there is no more than that which is one, wherefore an answer would enhance the belief that it is possible to be and have more than one, instead of undoing it. That is probably why Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not have any answers, and that their explanations are a load of rubbish. Nevertheless, if you get that they are as absurd as the world where they appear to be, they have fulfilled their purpose, which is to expose the insanity of believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Sometimes, however, they do not expose the absurdity of this belief. This happens when the flow of words stops and he instead uses some from his default vocabulary. It is a bit like when he speaks Spanish, which is not his native language, and he is out of Spanish words, he tries an English one, in the hope that it is similar. At times it works, but sometimes he times is entirely off.

Maybe that is why he spends much time on fine-tuning Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, and the reason that you are not reading is not the final but the present version of them. Most likely, however, there is no other reason than this fine-tuning is what Gudruång supports.


Alexius is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one because sometimes he forgets what and where he appears to be and thus bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. That does not mean, however, that what he appears be is enlightened, because the enlightenment of that which is one eases all appearances.

Alexius has not realised oneness, neither has anybody else because it takes more than one to accomplish something. For the same reason, although he has bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, he is not enlightened.

But he has vague memories of forgetting what and where he is, so nothing prevents a light brighter than anything else to erase everything he has ever been aware of, including himself as someone definitive, wherefore there is nobody to be conscious of the light being absorbed by a black hole with no beginning and end and thus no shape to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. Here you can read about the ins and out of a black hole.

Thus he is neither in the formlessness of oneness or anywhere else. Yet he appears to be someone who is compared to the enlightenment of that which is one in a world where there seems to be more than one.

There are also others trying to put words together in a song about that which is real versus that which is not. But since most of them have not bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, what they perceive to be real is part of a world where there seems to be more than one and thus not real at all. Hence their song – no matter how beautiful it may appear to be – is just another glorification of separation.

When the special self sees similarities between new age teachings and Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, it is wishful thinking. New Age philosophy is based on the idea, that what you believe to be can be made better, whereas the foundation for Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is, that whatever you believe to be is an illusion.

This also applies if their song is based on glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one because, just like a movie trailer is not the movie, these glimpses are not the enlightenment of that which is one. See The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it.

That which is one has only one word and as it takes more than one to hear something, it cannot be heard. For the same reason Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings cannot be understood.

But they seem to believe, that a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one and their interpretation of it in combination with secondhand knowledge from ancient scriptures and dead gurus, will make them able to reproduce oneness. However, since it takes more than one to reproduce something, the result is not that which is one but that which is not one. Furthermore, their teaching is based on understanding, and since that calls for more than one, they enhance the belief in being and having more than that which is one, instead of undoing it.

The application of one or more of the duality hacks, on the other hand, do not require any understanding or effort. They apply themselves while reading about them if you do not try to understand them.

In other words, the less you understand, the more you have the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one undone. And since it takes more than one to know or experience something, everything you believe to know, or experience is exposed as make-believe. This includes the brain, or something else is making the experiences, and someone or something is aware of them. Yet you have fun pretending to be someone in a world that is not there – just like playing a game.

A duality hacker is not streaming the construction of thoughts made by the brain to render a world of duality but Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, so they can hack the experiences of duality this flow normally seem to manifest and the duality hacker, therefore, eventually have the belief in being someone definitive undone .

Years ago, Alexius and his sons had much fun playing different board games. By following the flow of the games, they naturally came to an end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
By following the stream of thoughts to the very end, what you appear to finishes there as well. It can be the final end of the body, or just what you have believed to be until then. The latter was what happened to Alexius when he followed the stream of thoughts deep into an ancient forest where he was stuck for two days without food and water. After having been wired up by a helicopter and spending more than a month in hospitals, he did not appear to be a hiker anymore but an Enlightened Non-Teacher (read more about that here).

Finishing the writing of hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough which like the rest of HACK #4 is a new add-on to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings,**** seems to be the end of the stream supporting his writing of the non-teachings. Instead, a stream supporting his basic trait as a storeroom-manager appears to have taken over, so the creativity of writing is replaced with the seemingly more tedious process of refining what already has been written. None of that changes though, he is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one because that is not an appearance.

Nor does it change that Alexius Enlightened Non-Teachings is not his or anybody else’s. The content of them can be compared to water running out of a tap, which in this metaphor is his buddy Gudruång** and Alexius the empty glass that picks it up and shapes it into what you read. The glass does not have to be Alexius. It could be another other empty glass and probably will be when the appearance of Alexius falls apart.

The shape and name of the flow may change, but the flow itself will remain unchanged. It cannot be changed, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one. For the same reason, it is, of course, a metaphor that Alexius is a medium for the flow shaped into his enlightened non-teachings that somebody else read.

But as long as you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, there seems to be more than one involved in the undoing of that belief.

Even though waves have a different length of life and may look like they differ from each other, they all consist of water. As they, therefore, all have the same, none of them has something that can make them more special than others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
On the set out of writing hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, Alexius used other people as role models for the special self, and since they shamelessly declared their egoistic intentions when asked about something, it seemed obvious to use it.

If not perceiving the apparent difference between what is experienced to be you and others to make a difference, you recognise alone together*** that the experience of a physical or spiritual world with different appearances is just as unreal as the experience of you and others as somebody in the world of a dream.

But to be able to feel the special self himself, he had to fabricate perceptions that implied he believed to be one (see also the below epilogue). Hence hack #4.2 and #4.3 are based on experience when he says, you cannot escape this hell of self-discipline that is required to uphold a perception of being special if you are afraid to lose something. And this you are, as long as you believe to be and have something special.

It is also from experience, Alexius says that the special self tries to never be engaged so it can keep up a perception of being in control and others to admire it. He can add, that restoring the basic self does not come from letting go of something, nor avoiding anything or by doing something in particular, but having the willingness to apply the duality hacks.

They expose every experience as nothing so having a headache, being in love and whatnot is not something that fends off the bliss of nothing

In the process of having the belief in being someone definitive undone, the entertainment of the very same belief is beefed up by the duality hacks. The experience of being someone definitive is, therefore, like binge-watching an exciting TV show and feel so entertained by it that you forget what and where you perceive to be.

To not perceive yourself as somebody, you can, for example, apply hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´, and the bliss of not believing to be someone. Any other duality hack, except the enlightenment of that which is one, takes us to the bliss of not believing to be someone. Hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life does it by turning every experience into a symbol of that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of oneness. Since no appearance, therefore, means something specific,  you are in a state of not-knowing. You can also use a combo of the duality hacks.

It may be appropriate to put in here that applying the duality hacks has nothing to do with the popular concept of letting go because that is a confirmation of you as someone in control of yourself. But it is about the willingness to have the belief in being someone definitive undone. It sets you off on a journey without distance to that which cannot be known.

The duality hacks are not gonna set you free from anything but to everything.

Having this willingness, which you get by admitting you do not have it (read more about that here), the duality hacks naturally apply themselves during or after reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

In the process of doing that, they restore the basic self by wiping out the perceptions that are out of sync with the brain. Thus you have a happy time believing to be someone in the process of having this belief undone.

EPILOGUE:
Alexius has sometimes noticed that those who have had glimpses of enlightenment in retrospect uses the experience to disguise the darkness in themselves so others can perceive them as full of light.

While imitating the special self so he could write about it from experience, he realised that not all of it was an imitation. See also The YOU finger and the three ME fingers. There were leftover parts of darkness that he had hidden from his awareness with the consciousness of light. The description of the special self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough is, therefore, not only based on observations of others but the leftover bits of it that were exposed in himself in the process of writing about the special self.

This is not meant to say that everything heavy or dark belongs to the special self. Since everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, there are darkness and light in everybody. Unfortunately, the special self always tries to exclude the part of a pair that it judges to be negative and thus feels incomplete, whereas the basic self is inclusive and, therefore, feel fulfilled and thus incredibly relaxed.


*) You can read about the enlightenment of that which is one in the below hacks

**) Read more about Alexius´ non-physical buddy, Gudruång, in the below articles:

***) See hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

****) HACK #3, Not being exclusive but inclusive is, by the way, also an add-on to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. The three original hacks were HACK #1, Pretending to be someone definitiveHACK #2, Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality and HACK #5-7, Inner senses, enlightenment, and glimpses of it. They did not arrive in that order though. The enlightenment of that which is one was the first one.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, which is still in the process of being written.
