No one but the ego wants to be special and make a difference [under construction]

The basic self is not very far away from the empty breath, who resides in empty space. In fact, the brain do not mind, that you go there for some time. It does not really know the difference, as it is the same organ processing everything, whether considered to be real, imagined, spiritual and whatnot.

And as the brain knows it has made up the basic self and the world, where it appears to be, from empty space, it sees all as the same. But it does not want you to go there for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, at a time, because if it is not used regularly by the basic self it falls apart. Just like the body must be moved to keep it in order, so thoughts must be  moved to keep the brain going.

The special self, that you have made to replace the basic one, does not want you to connect with the empty breath or read Alexius Enlightened Non Teachings, because if you do what and where you believe to be is exposed as nothing, wherefore you are not special anymore and never was. Another word for the special self by the way is the ego.

In other words, if you are not following the basic self, but believe you are a unique and independent being, who thinks and does things on its own way and pace, you are following the ego.


The special self is a control freak. That is why, it is in need of for example alcohol, drugs and meditation to escape being controlled.


When you are nobody, there is not somebody to be bothered about anything. Consequently only those who want to be somebody have a need for meditation, mindfulness or other techniques to stop or control the thoughts that seem to disturb what they believe to be.

Those who think they are here to learn something want to be someone definitive, because only as such do you seem to be able to learn something. But being that which is you, there is no need of learning anything but to unlearn everything, because that which is you cannot learn anything, as it is that which is one and it takes more than one to learn anything.

Nobody but the ego have something of its own, so if you want to do something in your own way and pace you want to follow the ego. In other words, the special self is the ego.

Life never gives a second chance, because life is that which is one, and it takes more than one to have a second chance. Anyway you do not need a second chance, as you have everything


Most like to believe the thoughts produced by the brain to uphold the basic self are evil and of the ego. Yet they are not of something but  nothing, because every experience fabricated by the brain is made from out of nothing, but trying to stop them they appear to be something, so this the ego, which is the better version of yourself you try to make by seeking out specific thoughts as positive and negative, loves as that turns it into something instead of a binary code made of nothing.

purely mechanical like the ones and zero in a stream of binary cod

so they want the thoughts to be stopped, but only the ego has a need to stop something

but that is just because they do not want to follow it and be a unique and independent being, which is the ego because it thrives from being special and making a difference, because that confirms separation


The special self has to believe there is something in something bigger than itself, otherwise it only sees hopelessness. Yet not to hope for anything sets you free from believing to be someone, where there is no belief to hide reality is that which is one.
