+ Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ (in the process of being updated)

You can use anything that seems to speed you up – whether it appears to be positive or negative – as a take-off to the empty breath. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Success, as well as failure in the world of the outer senses, tends to speed up thoughts and feelings, which is perceived to cause stress and not relief. Some, therefore, try to escape these thoughts and feelings by meditating, for example, even though that often has the opposite effect, namely to cause more thoughts and feelings. Read more about that here.

If you do not try to control or stop the speed of thoughts and feelings so you can uphold a special image of you as someone substantial in the world of the outer senses, there is nothing to support the idea, that reality is definable. Thus the empty breath can sync the apparent tangible world of the outer senses with the abstractness of the inner ones.

As this makes the abstractness of the inner senses the foundation for the perception of you, the apparent differences between you and others in the world of the outer senses are no longer categorised as something that makes a difference. As you, therefore, do not know what and you are, you are in a state of not-knowing, which is like walking through clouds of bliss.

The fastest way to not be bothered by speedy thoughts and feelings is to not try to organise them into something harmonious, but have the raw energy of unsuppressed confusion ignites a take-off to the empty breath, which immediately takes you across an invisible bridge to the high-frequency world of the inner senses, where the speed from the low-frequency world of the outer senses that brought you there does not appear to be stressful but soothing.

Except for the inner and outer sense of sight, it is the same sensory organs, that pick up the world of the inner senses and the world of the outer senses. The difference between the two worlds is that the data received by inner senses remain relatively unprocessed by the brain, so the world evolving from them seems abstract, contrary to the world of the outer senses, which consist of the same data processed and fabricated by the brain into an experience of you as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. As every experience you believe to have has taken the brain one second to produce, what you experience to be and see now is the past. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In plain English, when stress is not suppressed in the world of the outer senses its chaotic energy ignites a take-off to the empty breath, that automatically synchronises the outer and inner senses, so the world of the inner senses become the foundation for how the world of the outer senses is perceived.

And since the world of the inner senses vibrates at a high-speed frequency, the experience of speedy thoughts and/or feelings in the low-frequency world of the outer senses does not seem disturbing when perceived from the high-frequency world of the inner senses. On the contrary. It is like walking on air.

The differentiation between inner and outer senses does not refer to them as if they are different organs but two kinds of experiences, one perceived to be of an inner world and the other of an outer world. Actually, the organs are the same for both types of experiences, except for the inner and outer sense of sight. But this is not important.

The brain claims that all experiences are processed from info coming from the sensory system, and you believe it because otherwise, it is evident, the brain makes them from nothing and you therefore not someone in the world of the experiences. Each experience of nothing twisted into the substantial world of the outer senses takes the brain one second to fabricate (read more about that here).

So if you go back one second in linear time, you get the unprocessed experience of being someone who reads this now. But as that experience is made from nothing, there was nothing to experience one second ago. Hence the experience of it, which in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is called the world of the inner senses, is not entirely unprocessed but coloured by coloured by what and where you believe to be in the world of the outer senses.

So even though the world of the inner senses actually is colourless, you probably experience many colours and things based on your memories from the world of the outer senses, which is full of colours and other apparently exciting things the brain has fabricated from the same raw data, it claims to hit the senses (read more about that here). But since they are only hit by empty space, the world of the outer senses is nothing twisted into something and the world of the inner senses nothing dressed up with your memories of something.

The abstractness in the world of the inner senses cannot be experienced without partly being conscious of the image fabricated by the brain of you as someone definitive, because the experience of something requires there is someone to experience it. That is why the empty breath synchs the world of the inner and outer senses in such a way that part of you still believe to be someone definitive. Only the enlightenment of that which is one erases that belief completely. The empty breath and the other duality hacks have a more gradual approach so that you can enjoy the belief in being someone definitive while having it undone. The animation is grabbed from the web.

So although the image fabricated by the brain of you as someone definitive is downplayed, when experiencing the world of the inner senses, it is still in play. Hence the world of the inner senses is coloured by your personality. Not being attached to its concepts in the world of the outer senses, there may be more senses to explore in the world of the inner senses. As long as you still appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, the possibilities are countless.

Being so openminded, however, you may bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. Since it takes more than one to experience or be aware of something, that is the end of everything conceivable or rather the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

That is not the subject of this article, so if you want to explore the enlightenment of that which is one, check out hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one. If you want to read more about the differentiation between inner and outer senses, please read What and where are the inner and outer senses.

You do not, however, need to understand the explanations about the inner and outer senses in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings to connect with the empty breath, which is the main subject of this article. On the contrary. The less you understand, the easier it is.

Just like a pencil cannot delete parts of its drawing to make room for something else but need the help of an india rubber, you need the empty breath to erase the most dominating parts of belief in being someone substantial in the world of the outer senses to make room for the abstract world of the inner tesenses. If you try to do it yourself, you enhance the belief in being someone definitive and thus fence of what is not definable.

If you insist in connecting with the empty breath in your own way and pace, you are fencing it off, because only in a world defined by time and space can you have your own way.

In other words, you must be willing to be guided by the empty breath, which realistically speaking means you should acknowledge not being ready for that. Read more about how acknowledging not to be willing to have the belief in being someone undone kickstarts the willingness to have it undone.

If you want to connect with the empty breath, do not try to collect data from this article into something meaningful but go with confusion and uncertainty, you may feel from reading it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being guided by the empty breath is not the same as you do nothing because doing nothing also enhances the belief in being someone definitive. It is the same, however, as nothing is being done by you.

The empty breath  is fenced off, if you try to organise the speediness of thoughts and feelings into something that appears to be good and not also bad, because  the empty breat has no sense of something in particular.

Please do not try to construct a perception of what you read that makes it fit into the understanding, you have established of what and where you believe to be, but keep going with the speed of thoughts and/or emotions that pop up, so the raw speed of them can ignite a take-off to the empty breath, and you in just one second feel like having a body filled with bliss of emptiness.

As this is a state of not-knowing, you are not aware of the bliss until memories of it pop up after you have returned to the conscious experience of being someone definitive, which must be done latest after 20 minutes, 45 at most, if you want to avoid that the brain falls into a coma. See ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

To wonder if indifference brings about the empty breath or it is brought about by the empty breath is like asking, if it is the chicken or the egg that comes first.

It is only in a substantial world like the one where you believe to be, that things appear to have a definitive shape and a centre. Emptiness has no centre, neither has the empty breath because it is nothing but emptiness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being centred is not required for connecting with the empty breath
The new age ideas about being still, centred or whatnot are not gonna help you in regards to taking off to the empty breath. Those ideas are based on excluding something to get a specific experience, and there is nothing definitive about the empty breath. In fact, you do not even know when you are connected because it is a state of not-knowing.

Thus you do not know that this state is the absence of stillness as well as noise because the empty breath is indifferent to the apparent contrasts in the world of the outer senses. Hence they are cancelled out. That being said, as both sides in a contrast must be acknowledged to be cancelled out, the most suppressed side of a contrast may seem very annoying for a while.

A take-off to the empty breath will only work to the extent, that you are not occupied with being or having more in a so-called spiritual, mental, emotional or materialistic way.

If you want to use speedy thoughts and feelings as a take-off to the empty breath, you better be less engaged in using them for being and/or having more, which is not done by excluding the desire for more but by including it as it is. See hack # 3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

When included, it cannot be perceived as a specific yearning for more energy, more power, more money, more love, more freedom, more wisdom, more authenticity or anything else. Hence there is no need to organise thoughts and feelings in a way, that makes them useful for achieving something definitive. They can, therefore, move in their own chaotic and speedy way, which is precisely what ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

Any tension in the body, for example hay fever, or emotion, for example anger, can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. It is just as easy like following the flow of erotic energy until it explodes and you feel released.

That does not mean, however, tensions and emotions magically disappears, when connecting with the empty breath. But due to its indifference nothing seems disturbing.

The more something seems to speed up inside or outside of you without you trying to make sense out of it, the less you experience yourself to be substantial. Hence the empty breath, which is empty space talking, can fill you up.* Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Anything upsetting can be used as a take-off to the empty breath
Any intense experience, for example excessive sex, can be used as a take-off to the empty breath. Feeling depressed works as well, provided there is no attempt to suppress it in order to preserve a special image of yourself or hang onto so it can be used to make others guilty. Read more about the latter here.

Yet the frustration that this entails can also be used as a take-off to the empty breath. And so can pain that just like frustration or any other emotion vanishes in the connectedness with the empty breath. Or to be more correct, it is the consciousness of you as someone definitive that dissolves. Thus there is nobody to be in pain.

A take-off to the empty breath is often experienced to be ignited in the top of the head by a gentle explosion of accumulated thoughts and feelings perceived as upsetting. This paves the way for the empty breath that greets you by expanding the body with empty space, so it does not seem to be substantial and therefore not to differ from the empty breath. That is if you do not try to stop or edit thoughts and feelings because that takes off their edge off and thus the raw power to ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

Read about empty space here:

In the above take-off, you landed inside the operator of the empty breath. See the paragraph of the same name in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?. But it could also have been in the swing of the empty breath, which physically speaking is experienced to be an engine located in the gut. See the paragraph of the same name in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? where you also can read about the other ways of experiencing the empty breath.

Since the connectedness with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing, there is nobody to know how blissful it is not to believe to be someone definitive. That is until the return to the consciouss experience of being someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, and the blissful memory of not having such experince pops up.

But as the connectedness with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing – sometimes called a perfect moment in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings – there is nobody to know that you are connected with it. Thus the feeling of it, as described in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? and the other articles about the empty breath is based on the vague memories of it, which pops up when returning to the consciousness of being someone in a world defined by time and space.

Should you feel this article has left you confused about what the empty breath is and how to connect with it, use the disorientation to ignite a take-off to the empty breath and feel a big smile expanding your body into a big fountain of joy or however the flow as it comes to you.

There is no right way to feel the empty breath. At first, it may not be felt it in the exciting ways described n the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?. It may not be felt at all, because its main attribute is indifference (read more about that here). Yet not feeling the stress, that comes from believing to be someone definitive, is a big relief.

Are you are still confused and do not feel any connectedness with the empty breath, check the other articles in hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing, or hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone that is more explanatory, or hack #4.2, The basic self versus the special one, which is the preface to the empty breath.

A NOTE ABOUT ALEXIUS:
The above way to connect with the empty breath is deduced from Alexius´ connection with it. How he ended up with the methods described in hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing he does not know. But from testing the take-offs before writing about them, he knows that anything which seems to irritate or excite him can be used to ignite a take-off the empty breath, whether he sits in a bus, walk down a noisy street or whatnot.

Check out Where do the hacks of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings come from, if you want to read more about this.

Consequently, there is no need to repeat a mantrapollute the air with incense, having positive thoughts, being in the now, special surroundings or with special people to take-off to the empty breath. Neither to stop thoughts, in fact, they are the fuel for the take-off.

There is one thing though that is needed, namely willingness to not be someone definitive. This paves the way for not being a vessel for the self, that the brain processes from out of nothing, but instead to be a vessel for the selfless unprocessed nothingness where the empty breath resides, which you can read much more about in the article Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.
