+ How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ (draft)

When not trying to make sense of this image but going with its absurdity, the free-flowing energy of the experience spontaneously ignites a take-off to the empty breath and its bliss of emptiness. That is if there is a willingness to forget what you believe to be. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

If not perceiving the experience of reading this to be special, it cannot define you as unique. Thus there is not something special to obscure the bliss of nothing.

As soon as you have had enough of the confusion coming from the belief in being special and do not try to edit or transform the energy of it into something better, it automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath. Since that resides in a gap between nothing and something and your current experience of being someone reading something is processed by the brain from what it imagined to receive from out of nothing one second ago (read more about that here), the take-off only takes about one second.

In other words, when connecting with the empty breath, you go back almost one second in linear time to the gap in between nothing and something where it resides.  From this gap, the brains rendering of nothing into a world of something is seen as you used to, but it is not perceived to be something and thus not you to be someone, wherefore you are in the bliss of emptiness.

In linear time, it may take a few more seconds, or years, before this is so because out of reflex you probably try to force the breath through the tensions of the body, caused by the feelings that you have suppressed from your awareness by hiding them there, instead of having the empty breath see to it. Since it considers the tensions as nothing, there is not something to pass.

Every time you believe in fighting something, it is to prevent being nothing.

It may feel as if you are fighting with the empty breath about how to breathe. This fight, however, is solely between what you believe to be and an imagined intruder because the empty breath is not intruding you. That is not possible. It does not see you as someone made of solid elements, but of emptiness like itself.  When you stop fighting, it will, therefore, be like nothing going through nothing.

To get to this point, you must be willing to breathe through the painful areas in the body instead of distracting yourself from feeling them. This does not mean that you cannot use medicine or acupuncture, for example, to ease the fear of pain. That may make it easier to pass through spasms, cramps and whatnot. There may be instances where more professional healthcare is needed. After all, the empty breath is not healing the body but the belief that there is someone there.

Having passed the apparent physical and emotional obstacles, not as somebody but nobody, it may at first feel like the empty breath takes its time before it slowly sets off from the abdomen. Almost like it is an inner breath that pumps air from there through to extract the body (read more about that here). Having done that, it goes on without any concept of inside and outside of a body. Although this is nothing going through nothing, it is in a world where everything is experienced as something also experienced like that, for example as you are surfing the rhythmic flow of the empty breath, going with the sound or swing of or the total abstractness behind its rhythmic flow. This you can read more about in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

Although it may have been speed and chaos that connected you with the empty breath, being in its connectedness, which is a state of not-knowing, is not a speedy or chaotic affair but like weightlessly walking on clouds. Think of being high up in the sky in an aeroplane. Although it was the speed that ignited the take-off and it must be maintained to keep you in the sky, it is not the speed that you feel but a laid-back experience of being in the clouds.

Being connected with the empty breath or not we are, by the way, always moving extremely fast because our feet is spinning at 1.000 miles an hour, if at the equator and a little less when north and south of it, and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour. Having a static perception of ourself we do not feel the thrill of this but having a perception that is in sync with the brain (read more about that here) we feel it and can use it to ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

This is one of the ways the basic self ignites a take-off to the empty breath. But the ways described in this article and in hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing are mainly geared for the special and not the basic self. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one. That is because most are drawn in by the excitement they imagine to get from being special rather than the pure happiness that comes from being basic, as the latter will not make them somebody in a world where being special, bitchy and having something better is the standard.

So although being special brings about stress and being basic entails relaxation, almost everybody does their best to be established as very special in a mundane or so-called spiritual way. In regards to the basic self, it is therefore not the stress of being somebody but the relaxation of being nobody, that ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

If not focused but defocused, all the elements used to construct what you believe is you blur out. Hence they do not seem to be something, and you, therefore, no different from the nothingness where the empty breath resides. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Let us imagine, you have covered your eyes by your hand, so you can indulge in a daydream without being disturbed of the world outside of you. Though it feels great to be in this fantasy of a better world, it also feels frustrating being cut off from the world as it is.

So when you want to see the world as it is and you sense nothing but your own hand is stopping you from that, you automatically remove it. It is, therefore, the built-up frustration and the realisation it is caused by your own hand, that makes you take it away.

Having had enough of something ignites a take-off to the empty breath and the bliss of nothing
Generally speaking, the process in the above box resembles the way a take-off to the empty breath is ignited. The perception of the experiences you seem to have is believed to establish you as someone substantial in a tangible world and therefore to hide that it is just a fantasy made from out of nothing.

This perception, which is to be compared to the hand in the above box, is made from selected thoughts organised into a spiritual or mundane vocabulary (read more about that here), that you share with like-minded ones to confirm them as somebody who can attest to you as somebody as well and not just a fantasy composed of thoughts. Read more about this here.

You may not only sense the bare feet making the footprints in this photo but also the body they belong to. Yet there is no body in the image, neither does anybody make footprints like those. Thus what you sense is a construction of thoughts. Read more about that here. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you have had enough of the confusion that comes from perceiving this fantasy to be real, you loosen the grip on the selected thoughts making up your perception of it. Hence they are not able to establish the apparent differences in the fantasy to make a difference. Consequently, the illusion does not appear to be something but nothing. Not in a sense, though, that you see nothing, but that what you see is not perceived to be something.

In other words, when you are fed up from perceiving your experiences to be real instead of fantasy, your frustration ignites a take-off to the empty breath. Since it takes you back to the nothingness from where the imagination of you as someone is conceived (read more about that here), you do not know what and where you are. Thus there is nobody to perceive experiences as if they are something. This does not mean they are transparent but that they are not attributed with a specific meaning.

The empty breath cannot be experienced as if it is something definitive because it resides in the nothingness unprocessed by the brain. Hence it is not noticed when you want to experience something specific.

Since this is a state of not-knowing, there is no awareness of the bliss that nothing entails when not disguised as something. But memories of it pop up when you return to the conscious experience of being someone, which you must do latest 20 minutes, 45 at most, after entering a state of not-knowing, if you want to remain as if you are someone substantial in a tangible world. Read more about that here.

Be warned, though, when returning from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive, the slate has been wiped clean, so even though you just had a unique experience, you are not special anymore but the basic self you always were supposed to be. As you are, therefore, not recognised as special, you may judge the world to be unjust.

What you believe to be and see is fabricated by the brain, so when it runs out of oxygen there is no more to be and see. Fortunately this fabrication of you as someone with a beginning and an end is easily bypassed, because it is made from out of nothing. The animation is grabbed from the web.

When a feeling is justified, it seems that it does not come from you but somewhere else. Yet it has only been excluded from your awareness. The feeling remains in the body as suppressed energy. To set it free, so it can ignite a take-off to the empty breath, you do not need to know what it is you have suppressed and why.

You just have to acknowledge the state of numbness it entails by totally being that and nothing else, as this does not leave something to define it, wherefore a take-off to the empty breath spontaneously is ignited and the suppressed feeling unveiled as nothing twisted into something special, so that you, who also is nothing, can appear as if you are important.

Here you can read more about totally being what you feel, so that whatever you are feeling is exposed as transparent bliss of nothing.

No worries, if you acknowledge the disappointment as yours instead of projecting it onto the world it can be used to ignite another take-off to the empty breath, so the slate again is wiped clean This applies not only to feeling disappointed but any feeling that is not justified with something, regardless you are aware of what exactly you feel and why. In other words, to entirely be what you feel in this moment ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

Had you not complained about your new status as a basic self when you returned from a state of not-knowing, there would have been no disappointment to ignite a new take-off to the empty breath. No worries. Being a basic self, you are happy and being that, there is no need to perceive experiences as something because happiness does not come from what you experience but from being in sync with the brain. See hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

As the experiences, therefore, are not ascribed with special meaning, they seem so unimportant, that, every now an there, there does not appear to be something to hide the bliss of nothing. In other words, you automatically and very quickly go back and forth a state of not-knowing and the conscious experience of being someone. See To be nobody and yet somebody.

When you are totally fed up with being controlled by the thoughts and feelings, you have sought out to form a belief system of how to be special, the system is automatically left. Not in the sense that you give up, let be or surrender. But in the sense that there is nothing to define you as special and thus no need to seek out thoughts and feelings that can confirm that. Consequently, you are free to be basic. See hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As you can see, igniting a take-off to the empty breath is not a matter of denying or indulging in sex or anything else but being so fed up of with the perception you have of what is right and wrong according to your belief system, socialism for example, so that you do not want to be caged by it anymore. See hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

The connectedness with the empty breath does not come from meditating, chanting or any other technique of self-control, as control enhances the belief in being someone definitive.

If you are confused about how to connect with the empty breath, do not try to clear up the turmoil but be so confused, that there is nothing else than that and therefore not something to define you as confused. Hence you are in the gap between nothing and something where the empty breath resides.

EPILOGUE:
If you have followed the explanations in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings for how to connect with the empty breath and it worked for you, it will stop working if you think that you know how to make it work. The empty breath is not something but nothing, and you cannot know how to make nothing works because it is not there. To make it work, therefore, nor should you be there.
