CANCELLEX To set the body free is to set you free [draft]

Feelings that are perceived to be painful or politically incorrect are often projected onto obscure parts of the body, so they seem to be out-of-the-way. But later, sometimes years, the suppressed energy of these feelings may cause the stomach to bloat. However, no matter what the doctors do to heal it, the cause remains unhealed until it is dealt with where it was made, namely in the psychological sphere.

This does not come from understanding the cause or pattern it seems to render, but the willingness to psychologically be the problem because then there is no need to exclude it from the awareness by hiding it in the darkness of the body.*

If the body is intolerant to a specific food, it is not mental ideas of mindfulness that it needs for its wellness, but that this specific food is avoided.

The idea that negativity is terrible, and not part of your personality, is another story of yours rooted in the wish to be better than others. Yet most of your daily activities, among others reading this, requires negativity because, without the negative pole in an electrical wire, there would be no energy to replicate this article on the screen.

And Amethyst, for example, emits negative ions to produce biochemical reactions that create positive vibes and thus relieves stress. Likewise, bringing back home your negativity from where you hid it in the body into your awareness will do wonders there.

Stubbornly insisting on being in the right will stiffen the shoulders and/or neck and thus create an emotional blockage that prevents the feelings arising out of the body from being processed by the brain as they are. Hence you can take over to process them into what you imagine you should feel according to collectively agreed on concepts that justify what you guess to feel, for example disrespected.

If that is what you, in your culture, should feel if someone is more than 15 minutes late for a meeting, you can in a rational way present others with collectively agreed reasons for being hurt and thus to be in the right, while at the same time escaping what waiting for someone in vain actually made you feel, because justifying a feeling suppresses it and so does rationally explaining it. Thus the only thing you feel is the satisfaction of being in the right.

But since that only last as long as someone is willing to listen to the story of your made-up feeling, the satisfaction fades out when they have had enough. No worries. If you perceive the story as ´it is what it is,´** nothing in it that adds up to something specific, so it cannot be used to justify being unfairly treated and therefore not suppress what you actually feel. Being in touch with that makes you feel so fulfilled that you do not need the satisfaction of being in the right.

The feeling you in this way have gotten in touch with will not trouble you as if not pinned on a story you or others have made up, the feeling has nothing to cling onto. Consequently, it quickly makes a place for another feeling. Should that seem to be an unpleasant one, sadness for example, there is no need to avoid it because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality. So if not suppressed, its roommate, happiness, is also there, so you feel happy/sad.

Willingness to feel the emotions that seem to scare us reveals that they are not something but nothing. Like the sounds, you hear walking on an empty street do not scare you when you turn around and see they come from the wind playing with the leaves. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Feelings only seem to be conflicting if specific ones are judged to be wrong. When any kind of feeling is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ there are no conflicts. Thus feeling angry is not at odds with feeling peaceful but two sides of the same coin.

When your reaction to something is sadness and it is perceived as ´it is what it is,´* you also get gladness. First of all, because everything comes in pairs, but also because if something has not made you happy at some point, it cannot make you sad. For example, when your cat dies, your sadness is related to the many years of gladness you had had when it was alive.

If you feel sad and it does not make you glad, you have chosen not to perceive it as ´it is what it is´ but ´I know what it is.´*

Should you, however, make a perception that states ´I know what it is,´* you will not feel happy/sad, as the sadness becomes sticky via the story you make to justify that ´I know what it is.*´ Not so much because of the story but because you spent much time trying to make others believe it, so it can be established, you have been unjustly treated, and that is the reason you feel sad.

Since IBS is a sickness that cannot be measured physically, it is most likely caused by psychologically problems you excluded from the awareness as something of yours by hiding them in the stomach.

In other words, the feeling has been replaced by a rational expression about it that you can use to suppress the real feeling from your awareness and hide it in the darkness of the body, often in the stomach, where the repressed feeling, in an attempt to escape its imprisonment, causes a psychosomatic disorder like IBS.

When you justify a feeling with something you judge to be wrong, you disguise the feeling behind a mental story of being treated unfairly and thus feel huffy. But you only pretend to feel this because it fits in your story which hides from yourself and others that you actually feel frightened.

You are afraid of everybody because, again and again, you have avoided the awareness of what you judge to be feelings of darkness in yourself by projecting them on others. Hence you feel guilty and constantly go in fear of their retaliation. This would be too shameful to tell when you feel attacked, so you invent a story that justifies that you feel something else caused by somebody. Hence they appear to be treating you bad and you to be innocent and good, so you can conclude there are no feelings of darkness in yourself.

This set up makes you feel stressed, which you, of course, blame somebody else for by making up a story that disguises you are stressed, so you can perceive others to be disturbed and you as relaxed, while you stresses on, and, therefore, maintain the tensions in the body and its attitude of attack/defence. Read more about that here. Everybody else knows you always look for something to attack, but they do not say anything because they do the same. That is why they recognise it in you.

To hide that you hate the whole world, you meet in special groups where everybody treats each other per a collectively agreed way of being united, for example by hugging and sharing. It is not love, though, but a wish to hide hatred that unites the group. This nobody wants to acknowledge, least of all they want to speak about in the group because anybody who does not have the self-control to censor themselves to only speak and act within the language of love established by the group, or its guru, is expelled from. And then there is nowhere to go where you can find relief from your despair.

Marriage is a social convention that produces numbing sameness, prioritising concepts of love over being in love.

When a ball is coming your way, it´s a natural reflex to respond and following such reflexes is pure fun.

When a ball is coming your way, it is an automatic reflex to respond to it. Automatically following such reflexes is natural and invokes the memory of how easy it is when you are nobody. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 4:
Sometimes a doctor may check the function of a body by knocking on special points to see if the involuntary movements – also called reflexes – works. But, actually, everything you appear to do in the world where there seems to be more than one is involuntary movements. That is unless you work very hard to make a perception of them, so what and where you appear to be looks like it is your choice.

To make the formlessness of that which is you appear as if it is someone special is not easy. It takes many years of going to school plus many special lessons to learn how to exclude what you judge not to be special.

An image of you as someone special is fabricated by postulating automatic reflexes to be of your own choice and suppressing the experience of the natural reflexes not fitting into the image of you, that you want the world to see.

To fabricate this perception, the behaviour of automatic reflexes is translating into something that seems to be an autonomously choice of someone specific. And by learning how to suppress the reflexes that do not fit into this image of being unique and independent, you become a person who seems to do everything by their own choice. In contrast, those judged to be outside of you seem to be doing things against or favouring you by their choice.

Undoing the belief in being someone special is like taking a step into the unknown – but as life cannot be known, that is exactly where you will find it.

The specific appearance of you that, like a puzzle, has been put together through trials and error is believed to be separated from what you have decided not to be and thus perceive to be outside of you so that it seems the world consists of you and different individuals living an autonomous life.

When this is believed to be a game that you are playing, it is easy to play along, but when believed to be real, it is hard work because you always have to suppress the natural flow to appear as someone living your own special life in your own way and pace.

It is so much easier just to go with the flow of the natural reflexes. It also feels so much better because going with the flow, you feel fulfilled, so you do not need to be special. Being nobody is great because then there is not somebody else – and that is so peaceful.

Since feelings are shaped by the way we perceive something, what we feel is our own responsibility. However, any kind of feeling will entertain us when it is perceived as ´it is what it is.´** Regarding feeling amused, it does not matter, therefore, what you have decided to feel when it is perceived as ´it is what it is.´**

The stories that you make in which you appear to know how everything fit together, sooner or later clash with the actual experiences of the world where you appear to be.

If you do not perceive what you feel as ´it is what it is,´** but as ´I know what it is,´** you become numb because a feeling can only be perceived to be known when explained, which suppresses it. Thus you do not feel entertained but bored. To make up for that, you enhance the perception ´I know what it is´** with stories that seem to confirm this and thus to make you feel good about how important you seem to be.
