NZR+++ Nothing to heal than the belief that you are there [under development]

If you give it your best shot to be angry, when the brain supplies you with thoughts of anger, you cannot help but feeling happy. The same applies to any other so-called negative feeling popping up, as long as you do not justify it with the world, because doing so you have avoided it and therefore also the guidance of the brain and created your own and supposedly better version of it, which does not result in feeling happy but lost.

Nor Alexius or any other appearance is your friend, because the brain is your one and only friend. It stores everything that constitutes what you appear to be, so if you are not happy with it, you are not happy with yourself. Most likely because the consciousness, the brain has given you in order to have experience the experience of being a basic self, has gone rogue and changed it into a special self .

But as the adventurous world of appearances is a construction of thoughts assembled by the brain, there are no other thoughts in the world than those used to keep it together by the brain. Thus the only way to make it appear as if you are independent is to manipulate its thoughts into something, that seems more special. Yet it never feels good to be a product of manipulation.

There is nothing magic about following the thoughts, the brain makes for the self it has created, so its life does not appear to be s. Yet it is very simple and easy – just like when you follow the GPS commands in a car. That being said Alexius only knows only about GPS from the movies, because he never drives a car and hardly ever uses his smart phone, which should not be understood that it is bad to do so. This is just how it turns out for him when he follows the GPS commands of the basic self he is programmed to be.

The brain is in charge of everything that we seem to experience, except how the consciousness that it has built into us interprets the experiences. In other words, when Alexius in the past was into gadgets and felt he had to have the latest iPhone and whatnot, it was because he was scripted to do so by the brain. But it was his consciousness that interpreted this to make him special. Read more about the basic self of Alexis here.

But since it was very complicated to keep this special image together – and also very expensive – it changed its mind. Maybe most of all because you cannot be special without being exclusive, and it felt so much better to be inclusive. Read more about that in hack #3.5 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

The basic self can be compared to a cat. It does not go to Pilates at a specific hour to stretch, but do it when its instincts tells it is time for that. Neither does it try to transform what it appears to be, but live in accordance with that. And it does no attend special seminars to learn who it is, because it has no ´I´ with a need to be anything else than what it appears to be in the present moment .Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self often makes up stories in which love is the solution to what it judges to be wrong in others. Yet it does not seem very lovingly to judge others or being on a mission to change them.

In oneness you do not have any friends, because it takes more than one to have anything, and there is no more than that which is one. For the same reason it is not possible to be alone.

Facebook wants to trap you into believing you have friends there, that wits for you to come back to see their messages and likes. Yet you have no friends there or anywhere else. Your only friend is the brain. It likes everything you believe to do and say, because It has all been put together by itself.

It may not like, however, if you try to manipulate the thoughts it arranges for you to have into something that appears to make you independent of it. Then on the other hand, it does not really care, because the thoughts you seek out to build an independent self do not change anything at all, except that you stop feeling the happiness that are inherent in the unedited stream of thoughts coming from the brain.

When the special self says that someone is stupid, it is most likely meant to condemn this person. But when it is said by the basic self, it is meant to protect the both of you from starting a relation, that will not work. Thus you respect that you or the other person departs.

From the stream of thoughts coming out of the brain, the special self extracts and multiplies those that it find useful for its tale of being a unique and self-assured person. Yet the tales that keeps spinning in its head are mostly concerned with what it should in the future or other things it is has doubts about, which is more or less everything.

But following the stream of thoughts, as it comes from the brain, the stream is felt in such a way, that there is no need to think – just like navigating a website that is designed so you do not need to think about where to click.

When somebody triggers an old feeling of rejection in the special self, it interprets this as an attack on its being, so that the old feeling is justified by the attacker, wherefore focus shifts from the unpleasantness of feeling rejected to the attacker in which the special self defines faults, that it asks the attacker to correct in itself in order to keep the feelings of the special self suppressed. The latter it does not mention to the attacker and quickly hides from itself.

The special self uses much energy to suppress specific thoughts and feelings, for example those judged to be negative, which is necessary for preserving the self 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 special way and thus not motivated for suppressing anything – especially not negative energy.

Instinctively it knows, that if there was no negative energy, it could not read this article, because it is just as needed as positive energy for electricity to work and thus for the computer, where Alexius types this article. The same applies to whatever electronic media you are using to read it. Read more about this at the end of this link.

There is no purpose in appearing to be any kind of self, just like there is no purpose of  being the self of somebody in a video game. The only thing you need to learn is the rules of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self is made by dissociating itself from unpleasant thoughts and feelings by justifying them with the world. Yet nothing has left the special self. It has just been hidden in obscure parts of the body. Read more about that at the end of this link.

Sooner or later the suppressed energy stiffens parts of the body and soften others, but no matter what massage or medicine you use to heal the body, it is not healed, because the cause of the problem is not in the body but the mind that dumped its problems there. Thus it needs to be taken back there to really be healed. See also the hack No Body-mind Connection about the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection. You can find this hack in Extra Duality Hacks.

This is not to say, that massage or medicine should be avoided. It can be a good way to tone down the symptoms, so that you do not feel weighed down by them and therefore have more energy to return the problem back to the mind, where it can be healed.

In fact nothing needs to be avoided. Restriction does not bring relieve but frustration. Yet restriction is also fine, because you can use the frustration it entails to ignite a take-off to the empty breath and thus the relief of not-knowing what and where you are. See hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

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 again by expressing them, or heal the problem that hidden feelings seemed to have caused in the body by bringing them back into the mind.

But as there there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, there is no world where there seems to be more than one, wherefore there is nothing to heal than the belief that you are someone there.
