The duality hacks, the mind, the body and whatnot [under development]

When you drive a car, you do not interfere with its engine or in any way try to change how it works or looks. In other words, you leave the working of the car to the car and just use the wheel plus gas and brake pedal plus and the gear, while you are very attentive to the road.

You may not even look at the body as it is, but instead, envision what it will be like in the future when you have you inflicted it with the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection. See the hack No Body-mind Connection, that you can find in Extra Duality Hacks.

But moving around in a body, you try to interfere with how it works and looks by pumping it up, making it thinner, forcing it into weird positions, consume a special diet and other things that restrict it and make it impossible for it to communicate with the brain and thus having the biological system taking care of it.

If you want to leave the world of duality, you seem to be stuck there, as trying to escape it reinforces the belief, that you are there. But you are not there, neither 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 leave than the belief, that you are somewhere.

This the application of one or more of the duality hacks settles. Not by healing the body but the foolish belief that you are someone in it so that it becomes something to be compared to a car, that you are driving in. And just like a car is built to take care of itself, as long as you supply it with water and gasoline, your biological system takes care of the body, as long as you provide it with water and food, brush its teeth, wash it and sometimes take it out a ride.

There may, of course, be special events – just like with a car – where you have to give particular parts of the body your attention. It could be that it needs to be massaged, or there is an inner organ that requires special care, so you consult professional healthcare services.

Most often though the body just want to send you the message, that it has no way of dealing with the unpleasant experiences you dump in it in order to conceal them from our awareness, because it is only built to deal with physical stuff, so unless you bring those experiences back into your mental or emotional memory and deal with them there, they will mess up the body.

Not knowing what he writes and not trying to disguise his lack of knowledge by hiding this imperfection in the body is how Alexius types down the Enlightened Non-Teachings.

The more the application of the duality hacks makes you indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive, which it does without you having to meditate or in any way restrict yourself, the less you have the need to be special and thus do not the need to dump the mental and emotional experiences, that do not fit into your special image, in the body, so it is not burdened with problems that it cannot deal with. Thus it is free to do with what it was made to do, namely to make sure you feel good, wherefore both you and your body relaxes.

Read about the unhealthy belief in a body-mind connection the article ´The empty breath´ sets the body free and in the hack ´No Body-mind Connection´, which you can find in Extra duality hacks.

In other words, the duality hacks do not need to heal the body but the thought system of yours that is blocking it from healing itself. This is not done by avoiding specific thoughts but the desire to be unique and hence the need to seek out those thoughts, that confirm your image of being an extraordinary being and exclude those interfering with this image by dumping them in the body.

Having friends on Facebook is a way to lure you into thinking you are important. There are no friends on Facebook. They are a construction of thoughts and thus they are your only friends.

Thoughts can be compared to 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.

Thus it is not thoughts but the constant awareness and control of them that is undone, when one or more of the duality hacks are applied, because when you are not a special but a basic self, you do not need to hold onto specific thoughts and make others go away, wherefore those needed, when for example making a shopping list, naturally pop up in your awareness.

The basic self has no need to stand out as special, wherefore it is of no interest for those who has such a need. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is only the special self, that is so removed from everything basic, that it needs to be grounded, higher and whatnot. The basic self has no such needs, neither does it search for anything, as it automatically gets thoughts from the brain resulting in impulses that it follows, so that it is in tune with the present moment – also if some planning is required to extent of that moment.

Following the present moment though has nothing to do with consistency. Maybe you get an impulse to sit down and read this article in the middle of doing the dishes, and so you do, because the basic self is not goal minded and thus have no need to finish something.

The special self on the other hand constantly feel that something is missing, so it stubbornly resist in following the beaten track of the basic self and makes up a story, where it has a special part to play. Yet it is not even able to follow its ´own´ way, because it is always in doubt.

But most like thoughts for going to Pilates or Yoga, for example, do not pop up. Your body does not ask for being put in weird positions at a specific hour, as just like a cat it does not plan for when to stretch but automatically does it when it is needed. Neither is there any urge to meditate or in some other way control or stop thoughts. On the contrary, as they are your friends, you have no desire to stop or control them.

When applying one or more of the duality hacks, you will slowly but surely have the belief in being someone definitive undone, while at the same time enjoying this belief. In other words, you can have your cake and eat it too, which you can read more about in Oneness is pointless.

When not knowing what and where you are there is nothing to relate to and thus nothing to fear.

In hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone you can read how the empty breath brings to into the bliss of not knowing what and where you are, which is also called a state of not-knowing. If you want to skip reading about it, but instead go straight into a state of not-knowing, check out hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

And if you want to know what happens if you remain in a state of not-knowing 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.

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

When the experience of something is not interpreted as it is real, the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome.

The above is not meant to imply, that 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 all by itself, which is a benefit of being a basic self. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In the experience of being someone in that world he changes between being the basic self, 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, but there are some beneficial ones, that can facilitate you 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.

It is not that he is longing to ´return to´ the formlessness of oneness, because he knows there is no more that which is one. Thus appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is something he pretends to be – just like within the context of such a world we pretend to be somebody in the virtual world of a video game. See hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive and hack #1.5 Pretending is a way out of duality.

When he has had his fun of pretending to be what he is not, which most likely is when he is finished writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, he probably bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one with the purpose of never again to appear as if he is someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, that seems to hide there is no more than that which is one. 

NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.3 The basic self versus the special one, which is still in the process of being written.
