2 x META ++ Oneness is pointless [draft]

You cannot point to that which is one since doing so requires more than one, but you can point to that which is not one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

As it takes more than one to point to something, it is not possible to point to that which is one. It is possible, however, to point to a world where there seems to be more than one and expose it for what it is, namely nothing. And perceived like that, there does appear to be something to hide, there never was or will be more that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

In other words, if you experience something, you are hallucinating, because reality cannot be experienced since it takes more than one to experience anything.

If you try to bypass the stream of thoughts coming from the brain via meditation and whatnot to make room for concepts like living in the now, you confuse yourself. What you believe to be is the brain, because all your experiences are created by it. Also if you experience to be coming from the heart. And as it always takes one second for the brain to fabricate an experience, what you believe to be aware of now happened in the past (read more about that here).

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When what you have is enough, it cannot be compared to what you could have had in the future. And as there is no past without a future, what you believed to have had in the past was nothing. And as what you are aware of having now is an experience created from the past (see the above note), what you appear to have now is nothing. In other words, when you have enough, there is not something to hide, there is nothing but that which is one, and since it is formless and therefore endless, you have everything.

Life never gives second chances, because it takes more than one to give something and it is that which is one. Besides that which is you does not need anything. It has everything because there is no more than that which is life.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since there is no more than that which is one, only oneness can be the source of the belief in separation. So being true to this belief, you confirm what it denies. Consequently, the belief in separation is a positive confirmation of oneness.

Oneness is one perpetual present, which has nothing to do with being in the now, as it requires more than one to be somewhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No-one is what they appear to be. Not in the sense that their real self is hidden behind their appearance, but in the sense that any appearance is an illusion since the presence of something – whether spiritual or mundane – requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one.

Let us say you live in a cold clime and wish that it would be warmer. You have never been in a warmer country but seen pictures and movies with people wearing slippers and shorts all year long. Doing the same, however, will not make you warm. Nor will buying a Hawaiian shirt, drinking a fancy cocktail with a little umbrella, singing songs in a foreign language, or changing your name to something more exotic. Replicating the ways of a warm clime will make you look special but not warmer.

This is a just a foolish metaphor to illustrate, that chanting, hugging, dressing in special clothes, getting a new name, thinking positive and whatnot does not transform you into something better. In fact, there is not something better to be because there is no more than that which is one.

All experiences, regardless considered to be direct, spiritual and whatnot, come from the brain, where they are fabricated to make the biological system reacts upon them as if it is a self inside a body who has them and, therefore, appears to be substantial being in a tangible world.

The brain counts on the self it has created to make this conclusion because if not, it is evident that nor the self or the world it seems to experience outside of it is real. In other words, because the self-wants to survive as someone substantial, it chooses to perceive the experiences produced by the brain as real.

Whether its perception positively or negatively relates to the experiences produced by the brain does not matter. As long as it relates to the experiences as they are and not as the self would like them to be, it feels good to be a someone in the world of the brain. It does not feel good, however, if not relating to the experiences as they are, but something imagined to be better, for example a socialistic or a capitalistic world.

Nevertheless, no matter if the perception is in sync with the world of the brain or not, the result is an internal dialogue. Being in sync with the brain, the self has an inner dialogue with its world and being out of sync, those in the special perception of its world conjured by the rogue consciousness of the self appear to have an internal ongoing talk with each other (read more about that here). Both ways seem to confirm there is more than one and that oneness, therefore, is an illusion.

But it is the other way around. Oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing else than that which is one. Thus this article and its explanations is also an illusion. In other words, the fantasy of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is not made by the brain or anybody else. Just like within the context of that fantasy, nobody is making a dream you seem to be having, and nobody is in it.

Yet appearing to be somebody in a world where there is nobody, it feels better to be in sync with the fantasy as it is than trying to change it. Besides, it is so much easier to undo the belief that you are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, when not trying to change anything there because there is no more than that which is one.

The basic self is not more spiritual than the special one. Neither is it better because everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is equally illusionary. But appearing to be in such a world, you have the most fun by being faithful to how the brain has set you up as a basic self. Trying to be something else is like trying to change the basic car you pretend to be in a game like Monopoly. It is not possible. Nor is it necessary. Although it seems boring to be a basic car, that drives the same road, again and again, the game is designed so that it feels entertaining when you follow the rules.

You are of course free to leave the game and search for other worlds, but Monopoly has no other worlds than the one already made for you to enjoy. And if you choose to be in the middle of it, so you can watch everything passing by, you miss the thrill of it.

In other words, being the basic self is the only thing that makes sense, when playing the game of being someone in a world defined by time and space. Besides, like all other games, the end is built into it. You are, therefore, bound to return to that which is you, when you follow the rules. Hence there is no reason to spend time looking for the real you. Especially because is nothing real in the game, nor outside of it, because that which is real is formless and therefore endless.

Please do not use the above to piece together so that the experience of a world defined by time and space become meaningful. There is no meaning in it because it is not real. And it cannot be explained how come we appear to be in it because there is no more than that which is formless, so it does not exist.

There is no deeper meaning to be found in a game. It is solely about being entertained, and so are the thoughts you get from the brain. Should that not be your experience, you have made a perception that seems to have altered them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thoughts have no more meaning than the messages on the cards you draw in a game like Monopoly. Still, you have to follow them if you want to play the game. There is nothing you can do about that. But you can choose how to perceive them.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It can be fun to play a game like Monopoly, for example, where you pretend to be someone in its capitalistic world. But if one starts to believe it is real, the fun is over.

The same applies to the belief in being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. That which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one. Hence there is no way to explain, how come you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The explanations in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings should, therefore, only be seen as a way to talk the language of the world where you believe to be so you may see that this belief is a mistake. You are neither physical or astral. What you believe to be is literally nothing, because it takes more than one to be something and there is no more than that which is one.

You could say that the explanations in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are pointers. Not to that which is one though, as that requires more than one, but to the mistaken belief that there is more than that which is one.

Consequently, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not meant to be something to learn. On the contrary. It is intended to be read in the same way you read an exit sign in an entertainment park, for example. You leave it when you have gotten the message.

You do not have to be the basic self to have the belief in being someone definitive undone. But since it is in sync with the flow of thoughts as they come from the brain, it is relative to that and not as the special self not occupied with being someone definitive. Thus it is not difficult to go along with along with a flow that undoes itself – or rather the belief that it is somebody at all. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being on your own makes you feel small, which the special self expects to fix by getting the power it imagines come from riches, going deeper or find something higher, for example.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The more the special self can teach others to see and feel its visions of a better world, the more powerful it appears to be, and the less it doubts itself.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is not possible to stop neither the basic or the special self from believing they are somebody definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. As it is their choice to believe so, they must take another one themselves. But it is possible to expose that what they see as something is nothing.

In fact, science says the same, namely that everything we seem to feel and see consist of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and just like a dream does not contain anything substantial, is what we perceive as elements of matter making up a tangible world. See also the articles Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and Free to float in the void of ´the empty breath´.

To prevent that the acknowledgement of this ends the belief in being someone, the special one makes up a perception of the nothingness, from which the illusion of it is fabricated, as if it is a big void full of mystery, that magically will transform it into pure love, cosmic consciousness or something else which seems to save it from termination.

Alexius does not know, if he was a basic or special self, when he for the first time about 50 years ago bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, because he forgot to remember what and where he was (read more about that here).

The basic self, on the other hand, is making a perception that is relative to the nothingness of the thoughts coming from the brain. Thus it is not attached to itself as definitive but nobody special and therefore in a position, where it is not a problem to acknowledge, that the brains rendering of it as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. It is, just like within this illusion, comparable to acknowledging that what you appear to be in a game you are playing is not real, neither is the game.

The brain, however, does not support this acknowledgement, because that would be the end of itself and everything it has rendered from out of nothing to make it look and feel like something. But since it is such hard work to uphold the illusion of a tangible world, it does not really mind ending the belief that there is something in nothing.

When there is nothing, that appears to be something, there is not something to be excited about. Hence there is no expectation to prevent the enlightenment of that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The basic self has not something to look forward to. Not because it is living in the now, but because its perception is in sync with the flow of thoughts coming from the brain. Consequently, it is not someone definitive but someone relative to the brain. And as it by nature is all-inclusive, since everything experienced is created by it, the basic self is in the past as well as the future and everywhere else but the formlessness of oneness. No one can be there, as it requires more than one to be somewhere.

Being everywhere but there, the basic self is nowhere and therefore as close as it can be to where it cannot be. All it needs to realise is that since only that which is not one appears to have a choice, it has no choice but not to choose anything if it wants to undo the belief that there is more than one.

If seeing or feeling something is not perceived to confirm you as someone definitive having specific experiences, the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome. See hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In regards to bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one it does not matter, if you seem to be authentic or fake, spiritual or mundane, basic or special, man or woman, stupid or bright, blissful or miserable, plant or meat-eating, positive or negative thinking or whatnot. As long as there is no identification with what you seem to be or not be, it is all the same. In other words, when you have absolutely no idea about what and where you are, the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome.

This is not an experience, nor a realisation. That which is one can neither be experienced or realised since that requires more than one.

Hence there is no way to know what you get by bidding it welcome. In fact, what you believe to be is not getting anything. On the contrary, it is very abruptly terminated, sthere is nothing left to fall into the formlessness of oneness gracefully.

This most likely seems frightening when you believe to be someone definitive, and you do – otherwise, you could not read this article. No worries, all other duality hacks than the enlightenment of that which is one have a more gentle approach to undoing the belief that you exist because you experience something. The undoing of it is done over time and in the process, this foolish belief amuses you.

The empty breath, which you can read about in hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone – is all about that. If you rather skip reading about it and straight away learn how to connect with it, check instead hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

The enlightenment of that which is one you can read about in hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, which is still in the process of being written.
