[+] You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference (in the process of being updated)

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one can you search for the meaning of life. Yet it is not to be found there or anywhere else, because it takes more than one to find something and life is that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The way that letters are put together in various shapes makes it possible for us to attribute a special meaning to each of them. And when the shapes are organised in rows divided by dots, like in this article, they seem to make up a story written by somebody else and read by us, and thus to confirm we are somebody in a world where there are more than one. But since the story that seems to prove this is pieced together of shapes attributed our own meaning, the story is made by ourselves and does, therefore, not prove there are more than that which is one.

Reality is that which is one, and since it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be experienced.

But let us imagine, that the letters making up the shapes we believe are confirming us to be somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one are the same letters making up that which is one. Unlike in the world, where we believe to be and where everything is experienced to be separated by time and space, there is no space to keep anything apart in that which is, since that requires more than one.

Although the story of you as someone definitive is made up by yourself, it is not a happy but a sad stor, because you feel sad being separated.

Hence the letters, that oneness consists of cannot be distinguished from each other, and therefore not organised into shapes, that added together in specific ways seem to establish a story of us as somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, oneness is formless.

In non-duality, everything is fused into one perpetual present, that no one can see, as it takes more than one to see something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A world defined by time and space is a slowed down version of the formlessness of oneness
It is not only because there is no space to separate the letters making up that which is one, that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because they are not still. They move so fast that time stands still, so it is not possible to organise them in a linear way – or any other way for that matter.

In the context of our story about a world where there seems to be more than one versus that which is one, you could say, that a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy of what oneness looks like when slowed down. The more it is imagined to be slowed down, the more space there seems to be between the otherwise shapeless letters, wherefore they appear to be separated from each other and each has a definitive shape of their own.

Furthermore, there seems to be time to arrange the separated shapes in different combinations attributed with each their own meaning, so not only space but also time establishes separation as real and thus that which is one as unreal.

The slowing down of oneness is, therefore, an attempt to turn its formlessness into a construction of thoughts representing specific shapes that they seem to be something you can manipulate to your liking in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Thus the way back to oneness does not come from slowing down thoughts via meditation or something else that makes you appear to be in control of the thoughts making up your particular shape so you seem to be at  rest and untouched by the speed of the Earth that is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour.

Neither does the way back come from understanding this or anything else, as to understand something enhances the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

No matter if something is experienced to be inside or outside, it is make-believe, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness and formlessness has no sides.

To undo the belief in duality you must give up attributing meaning to anything, that seems to have a beginning and end so that the apparent differences of duality does not appear to make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A journey without distance takes no time
It is not a fact but make-believe that what and where you appear to be is real. It all falls apart if not attributing meaning to the letters in this article or anything else that seems to be part of your story, because when shapes have no meaning, there is nothing to separate them and therefore no time and space.

Since there is no more than oneness, nobody has ever left it. Thus the way back takes no time.

The fastest way to not attribute meaning to something appearing to be there, is, of course, to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one). It promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you remember to have experienced so there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled and thus nobody to experience a world where there seems to be more than one.

If you, however, want to have your cake and eat it too, you can connect with the empty breath (read more about that here), because it undoes the belief in being someone in a less abrupt way. Thus you are able to enjoy the excitement of it while in the process of having it undone.

The reason for this is that the empty breath does not erase the memories of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet due to its flow of indifference, the apparent difference between what is believed to be you and others is not perceived to make a difference.

Thus a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be confirmed to be real. But it is quite fun to pretend that it is (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive). Just like in the context of the apparent reality of a world where there seems to be more than one, it is fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

The source of life cannot create anything, as it is that which is one and it takes more than one to create something. For the same reason, it cannot be found. Fortunately, that is not necessary, because the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Nothing needs to be done when not perceived as something
The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing –for example vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming and computer to smartphones to wearables – and the speed of info in cyberspace is a reminder, that the reality is sizeless since it is that which is one, and it requires more than one to take up space. As it, therefore, cannot be found in a world defined by time and space, nothing in such a world can bring you back to it, except the undoing of the belief that you are there.

That is the purpose of the empty breath as well as the other duality hacks. It is not achieved, though, by revealing the formlessness of oneness, because it takes more than one to reveal something. Besides, it does not need to be revealed, as it is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing else.

What needs to be revealed is what appears to hide this. It is your perception of a dream that makes it appear real and likewise it is your perception of what and where you appear to be when you believe to be awake that establishes it as real. If you, for example, perceives a specific noise to be irritating, you will probably start to imagine how to get rid of it and how much better everything will be when the noise is gone. Thus the belief in being someone definitive is enhanced.

This is what the empty breath corrects without you having to change your perception or anything else because the noise, as well as your perception of it, is perceived as nothing by the empty breath and when connected with it this perception rubs off on you. The belief in being someone is, therefore, not enhanced but undone at once. In a world of linear time, this may seem to take a long time before there is nobody to realise this.

No worries. Time is also perceived as nothing by the empty breath, so while nothing happens you can have fun perceiving it to be something. In other words, with the empty breath by your side, you do not need to stop or change anything, nor to force the body into uncomfortable positions, to have the belief in being someone undone and at the same time having fun being in love, irritated or whatnot.

APPENDIX:
Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media is stressing. But that only seems so, because they want to uphold a special image of themselves, and therefore need to sort it in categories of good and bad, so it ends up in a story that points to you and like-minded ones as the good ones and others the bad ones. But as this story is based on countless judgments and speculative concepts regarding right and wrong, thoughts keep flying around, which is what feels stressing and not the amount of info.

This speculative and restless state though is not a problem, that needs to be fixed. In fact, the faster the speed of thoughts and feelings seem to be, the faster the stress disappears. That is if you do not try to slow down the speed but use it to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. Read more about that here.
