The transparency of bliss comes from not making a difference

Following the script of the brain for being a basic self is like taking part in a silent movie. There is not all this noise, that seems to come from thoughts. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius has not realised oneness, neither has anybody else because it takes more than one to realise anything. For the same reason, it is not possible to be enlightened. Yet he has vague memories of not knowing what and where he was so that there was nothing to be extracted by a light absorbed by a black hole without beginning and end and therefore no way in or out of it, so he could neither enter or leave it. Read about the ins and out of a black hole here.

And as this is still so, he is not anywhere, though he appears to be somewhere as someone who is compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

Some confuse being the basic self for being enlightened by that which is one, but as already mentioned it is not possible for somebody to be enlightened. Besides the brain, that has fabricated the basic self, would never support enlightenment, as it terminates everything it has made. Thus it is only the special self that would perceive itself to be enlightened.

That being said, it is easy for the basic self to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one because it is so used to go with the stream of thoughts, that it close to being abstract and thus not to hide that which has no shape.

This, on the other hand, is also the reason the basic self is tempted to become a special self because in its abstractness it senses the nothingness from where it is conceived. And doing that, the happiness it gets from following the stream of thoughts seems hollow compared to the merry-go-round world you seem to be a part of by following a belief system where you seem to come from the heart, live in the now, and whatnot.

The purpose of being someone is to hide the formlessness of oneness by insisting on making a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But as any belief system is built on top of the basic self, the purpose is always the same, namely to hide the nothingness on which the belief in being someone definitive is founded. The purpose of the duality hacks, on the other hand, is to expose this nothingness so the belief in being someone is not enhanced but undone.

For example by perceiving everything experienced as symbols of that which cannot be experienced (see hack #2.2 Everything experienced is a symbol of life). Or connecting with the empty breath and its indifference to the apparent different experiences, the brain produces of a world where there seems to be more than one (see hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone).

»So the last will be first, and the first will be last.« Matthew 20:16

In this way, everything, though apparently different, becomes the same. So no matter what something appears to be – first or last, good or bad, light or dark, for example – it makes no difference.

That you and everything else experienced is nothing is not something you are aware of, because if so you had to be something. When others pass by it is like nothing passes nothing, and when laying in your bed, there is no awareness of you in a bed because it does not seem to differ from you. See also the part The transparent sound of the empty breath in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

It may be as if the body is not physical but something not limited to being somewhere. And that everything is spinning like a cat is not a feeling but the way it is. This is not an experience of oneness because such an experience is founded on the assumption that there is more than one. Nor is it an out-of-the-body experience but a state of not-knowing.

In a state of not-knowing, there is so much bliss that nobody is objecting to being terminated by the enlightenment of that which is one or returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive, so latest 20 minutes, 45 at most, after you entered a state of not-knowing, this is what happens. See the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks.

Be aware, that the transition to a state of not-knowing, which may last from a second to several days, may not seem pleasant. The brain tries to distract you from leaving its definable world by making very tangible experiences of something weird, like if ants are crawling on your body, for instance, so the feeling irritated keeps you in the consciousness of being someone definitive. See also If included irritation undoes the belief in duality.

You cannot know that which is one when you experience to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Thus looking forward to oneness is madness. You can, however, look forward to not believing, that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. In doing so, the hope for more vanishes and so there is nobody with a need to tell somebody, that it is not possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Alexius is so relieved that he is about to finish writing hack #4.3 The basic self versus the special one. On the set out of writing it, he used other people as role models for the special self, and as they shamelessly declared their egoistic intentions, it did not seem difficult to write about the special self.

But to really be able to feel the hell, it is to believe you are unique, he had to become special himself. He can, therefore, based on experience say that there is no way out of this belief if you fear to lose something, which you will do as long as you believe to be separated from your interpretation of your experiences. But if not interpreting the apparent difference between what is experienced to be you and not you, alone together you will recognise the nothingness of it all, so there is not something that appears to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

From experience, he can also say that the willingness to apply the duality hacks set him free from this belief and thus to be in the transparency of bliss, that comes from the absence of being anyone. In his case, he mixed between the appliance of hack #2.2 Everything experienced is a symbol of life and hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone. Others may prefer a combo of more duality hacks or maybe just one.

By reading the duality hacks with a willingness to have the belief in being someone definitive undone they naturally apply themselves. This is not going to make you a better person but to make you feel good whether you appear to be special, have a big ego or whatnot.

Applying the duality hacks, you have the belief in being someone definitive undone while enjoying the very same belief.

In other words, it is not about becoming less special, getting rid of the ego or something else, but to undo the belief that you are any of those things. For example, by applying hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive, as what you pretend to be you are not. Hence you can enjoy being in love while the belief that you are someone in love is being undone. Or you can enjoy being angry without feeling guilty because nobody is angry.
