Take-offs into ´the empty breath´ [draft]

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

Success and failure in the world of the outward-facing senses tend to speed up thoughts and feelings. Therefore, since this seems stressful, you may try to fix that through meditation, even though it often has the opposite effect, namely bringing about more thoughts and feelings. Read more about that here.

If you do not try to control or stop the speedy and chaotic movements of thoughts and feelings so they can be used to organise an image of you as someone special in the world of the outward-facing senses, there is nothing to support the collectively agreed idea of this world as definable. Thus the empty breath can sync the apparent tangible world of theo utward-facing senses with the abstractness of the inner ones.

Since this makes the abstractness of the inward-facing senses the foundation for the perception of the world experienced with the outward-facing senses, the apparent differences in that world are no longer perceived to make a difference. Consequently, do not know what and you are and thus in a state of not-knowing, which is like floating on 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 ignite a take-off into the empty breath, which immediately takes you across an invisible bridge to the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses, from where the speed from the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses that brought you there does not appear to be stressful but soothing.

Read more about the inner an outward-facing senses in What and where are the inward and outward-facing senses or hack #6.3 The inward-facing senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

In other words, when stress is not suppressed in the world of the outward-facing senses its chaotic energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath, that automatically synchronises the outer and inward-facing senses. Hence, the world of the inward-facing senses become the foundation for how the world of the outward-facing senses is perceived.

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

Except for the inward and outward-facing sense of sight, the same sensory organs pick up the world of the inward-facing senses and the world of the outward-facing senses. The difference between the two worlds is that the data received by the inward-facing senses remain relatively unprocessed by the brain, so the world evolving from them appear to abstract and inside, contrary to the world of the outward-facing senses, which consist of the same data processed by the brain into an experience of you as someone definitive in a world outside of you that is defined by time and space. That being said, what the brain receives from the sensory system is nothing. The body is a fantasy, also the aura around it and higher frequencies, and that the brain is making this fantasy that someone is experiencing because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to make or have a fantasy. But within the context of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, this is the fantasy Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is using to expose that everything experienced is a fantasy nobody is making or having.

The differentiation in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings between inner and outer world is not meant to say that they are experienced through two sensory systems. Just that they are two different kinds of experiences: One perceived to be inside and the other to be outside. It is, actually, the info from the same sensory system that the brain claims to process into an inner or outer world, except for the sense of sight. But that is not important in this context.

It has taken the brain one second to produce your current experience of the outer world (read more about that here), so if you go back one second, you get the unprocessed version of being someone who reads this now. At least theoretically speaking.

However, none of your experiences is based on information from the sensory system, as the brain claims. Yet most choose to believe the brain because otherwise, it is evident that they are not somebody, but nobody since all experiences generated by the brain are processed from out of nothing. So what you find when going back one second is the nothingness the brain twists into something experienced by someone.

There you also find the empty breath, which is nothingness not processed into something by the brain. A split second before you reach the empty breath, you meet the brains first abstract visions of nothing as if it is something, namely the world of the inward-facing senses. And almost a second later, the brain has processed the abstractness into your current experience of being someone substantial in the tangible world of the outward-facing senses.

When indifferent to the belief in being someone, it feels so good appearing to be that. This is until you are not indifferent to it anymore. Then it feels like hell.

In the connectedness with the empty breath, the world of the inner and outward-facing senses are synced with what and where you appear to be. When walking down the street, you probably do not sense the inner world, although it is from there you perceive the world of the outer, and therefore do not perceive it to be something.

If you connect with the empty breath when you are all on your own, the image fabricated by the brain of you as someone definitive is downplayed, but still in play. Otherwise, there would not be somebody to experience the world of the inward-facing senses and the glimpses of the enlightenment that may come from it. Read here how to have glimpses of enlightenment. Your eyes do not need to be closed for this because while you have such experiences, the world of the outward-facing senses automatically fades out.

Nobody knows if the eyes are closed when the empty breath does not sync the inner and outer world but embraces you in its emptiness so that there is nothing but that. But when returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, there is undoubtedly someone to know that it is natural to be just as bad as good in such a world since one must appear to be more than one there.

You cannot experience the abstractness in the world of the inward-facing senses without partly being conscious of the image fabricated by the brain of you as someone definitive. Hence the empty breath synchs the world of the inner and outward-facing senses in such a way that part of you still believe to be someone definitive. The only duality hack that immediately undoes this belief is the enlightenment of that which is one. All other duality hacks have a more gradual approach so that you in a process over time can enjoy the belief in being someone definitive while having it undone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No matter how the connection with the empty breath is experienced, you are in the bliss of nothing. However, this state of not-knowing cannot last more than 20 minutes, 45 at most,** at a time if you want to return to the conscious experience of being someone because the brain falls into a coma if the ongoing communication with the self it has created stops. See ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

Should you forget to return to the consciousness of being someone definitive, the enlightenment of that which is one set in. Read more about that in hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one. It terminates any experience you ever had of being someone or being in the bliss of nothing, so there is nothing to hide there never was or will be more than that which cannot be experienced, namely that which is one. Most, however, leave a state of not-knowing a long time before it is too late to return to the consciousness of being someone.

You do not need to understand the explanations about the inner and outward-facing senses to connect with the empty breath. Nor do you need to understand, you are brought back one second in linear time when you connect with the empty breath. On the contrary, the less you know, the easier it is because you connect with the empty breath by not doing anything about how you feel, so its unedited energy can ignite a take-off into the empty breath. If you try to do it yourself, you enhance the belief in being someone and thus fence of the bliss of being nobody.

If you insist on connecting with the empty breath in your own way and pace, you fence it off, because you are not in charge of anything except how you perceive it.

In other words, you must be willing to go with the flow of the empty breath, which realistically speaking means you should acknowledge that you do not feel ready for that. Here you can read more about how accepting 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 the confusion and uncertainty you may feel from reading it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

Please do not try to construct a perception of what you are reading about the empty breath so that you seem to understand it. There is not something to understand because it is nothing. So stick to being confused. The unedited energy will ignite a take-off into the empty breath, so you, in one second, are filled with the bliss of emptiness.

Any tension in the body or emotion in the psyche will ignite a take-off into the empty breath if you go with the flow of it unedited. This is as easy as going the flow of erotic energy until it explodes and you feel released.

That does not mean, however, that tensions and emotions magically disappear, when connecting with the empty breath. See The purpose of Alexius´ Duality Hacks is not to heal the body but the belief that there is someone in it. But due to its indifference to a world of differences, nothing seems disturbing.

The conclusion of this is not that you should stop taking medicine to ease hay fever, for example. It may help you to relax, so you are able not to suppress but face the stress and fear of being attacked and thus can use the energy of this violent experience to ignite a take-off into the empty breath.

Actually, having sex can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, and so can any other intense experience. Feeling depressed works as well, provided there is no attempt to suppress it to preserve a particular image of yourself as a happy one or to hang onto a sad face so it can be used to make others guilty. Read more about the latter here.

Yet, the unedited frustration that this entails can also be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. And so can pain that 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 stops. Hence there is nobody to be in pain.

Take-off into the empty breath might be experienced to start off 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 nothingness of the empty breath. That is if you do not try to stop or edit thoughts and feelings because that takes off their edge and thus the raw power to ignite a take-off into the empty breath.

In the above take-off, you probably 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. 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. Physically speaking, it might be experienced to be an engine generating it from the gut or the chest. See To be nobody and yet somebody.

But as the connectedness with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing, 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 memories of it. They pop up when returning from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive.

Should you, after having read the above, feel confused about what the empty breath is and how to connect with it, do not try to resolve this but go with the flow of the unedited energy of disorientation until it ignites a take-off into the empty breath, and you feel a big smile expanding your body that is showered by a big fountain of joy.

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.

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

A take-off into the empty breath only works to the extent, that you are not occupied with being or having more in a material, immaterial or spiritual way.

Are you still confused and do not feel any connectedness with the empty breath, check the other articles in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing, or hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone that is more explanatory. You can also read the preface to the empty breath, namely HACK #4, When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

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 there is not something preventing the empty breath, which is empty space* to fill you with the bliss of nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A NOTE ABOUT ALEXIUS:
The above way to connect with the empty breath is what Alexius has detected from his interaction with it. How that turned into the methods described in hack #5.2 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 into 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 mantra, having positive thoughts, being quiet in unique surroundings with exceptional people to take off into the empty breath. Neither to stop thoughts. Actually, they are the fuel for the take-off.
