+ Speed is stillness, when not detained

Stress comes from trying to keep together a fabricated image of a world where there seems to be more than one, instead of letting it fall apart, so that your belief in such a world does not hide, that it is made from empty space, because there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

It takes a lot of effort to be active in the world of the outer senses contrary to just be in the world of the inner senses, which requires no other effort than not making an effort to uphold the belief in being someone definitive.

This does not mean you must to be inactive in a certain body posture in the world of the outer senses. You can move around in the nature or the city at any pace that suits you. As long as there is no effort to use what you appear to be as a confirmation of you being someone definitive.


If not using your taste in for example music to prove how special you are, you are nobody, and so there is not something to hide, that what you appear to be is no different from Santa Claus, namely a fantasy made from nothing. This is not to say, that the game of Santa Claus is not fun. It certainly is, provided you do not forget that it is a game.


The change of size from big to very small – for example from vinyl to cd to MP3 to streaming and from computer to smartphones to wearables – and the speed of info in cyberspace can be used as a step towards the speediness and formlessness of non-duality.

Not in sense of making the body move faster and appear less opaque but in the sense of connecting with a the faster frequency of the inner senses, which also happens when going with the flow of the empty breath. Read Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ to learn how to connect with the empty breath.

The brain stores the memories about a world of duality in such a way, that they seem to confirm its fabrication of you as someone definitive as real. In other words, as you are the product of the brain, you are the brain, so to undo the belief that what you appear to be is real, the empty breath slowly but surely erases all memories by being indifferent to their apparent differences.


Some whine about the amount of info on electronic medias causes stress. But that is because they believe to be someone definitive, and therefore constantly need to sort and categorise all new info into the boxes making up the image they uphold of themselves and the world, so that their story of themselves as someone important can be confirmed.

In other words, if you believe to be someone definitive you need to sort all info into what you judge to be good or bad, so it ends in a story that points to you as the good one and others as the bad ones. But as your story is based on countless judgments and speculative thoughts regarding right and wrong, thoughts keep on flying around. This is what stresses you and not the amount of incoming info.

This speculative and restless state though is not problem, that needs to be fixed. In fact the speedier you feel, the faster the stress turns into stillness, provided you do not try to manage it but use it as a take-off to the empty breath. See the next article Take-offs to ´the empty breath´.
