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

Take-off to the empty breath

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. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

Success as well as failure in the world of the outer senses tends to speed up thoughts and feelings, which is counterproductive in regards to feeling relaxed. Some therefore try to escape these thoughts and feelings through for example meditation, even though it most often has the opposite effect, namely the generation of more thoughts and feelings.

The abstractness of the empty breath

The sensations hitting the senses are the same, whether they seem to result in an abstract or definable world. But you cannot sense the abstract world of the inner senses, if you believe the world defined by time and space, that the brain constructs from the sensations it claims to receive from the senses, is all there is. The animation is grabbed from the web.

If you do not try to control or stop the speed of thoughts and feelings in order to uphold an 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 synch 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 how you are perceived you as someone definitive, the differences that seem to define you as separated from others are no longer categorised into something that makes a difference. Thus you are in a state of not-knowing, which is like being on cloud 9.

The fastest way to not be bothered by speedy thoughts and feelings is to not interfere with the speed of them, so their uncontrolled raw power 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 as something causing stress.

Since the empty breath is indifferent to differences – for example good and bad – it is fenced off, if you try to organise the speediness of thoughts and feelings into something useable for making the world a better place.

That is if you did not try to prevent the take-off to the empty breath by struggling to bring order into the chaos of thoughts and feeling and prevent them from going here, there and everywhere because the empty breath is everywhere.

You can die from not being able to control a car that you are driving at high speed, but only the ego dies if not controlling the speed of thoughts and feelings – and without it the empty breath takes over.

In other words, what seems to be too much speed for your wellbeing in the world of the outer senses works great as a take-off to the empty breath, that automatically synchronise the outer and inner senses in a way 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 very fast frequency, experiencing speedy thoughts and/or feelings in the low-frequency world of the outer senses do not seem disturbing when perceived from the high-frequency world of the inner senses. On the contrary. It is like walking on air.

The empty breath takes off from the outer senses into the inner ones

Except for the inner and outer sense of sight, it is the same sensory organs, that pick up for the world of the inner senses as well as for the world of the outer senses. The difference between the two worlds is that the data received by inner senses remains 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 it takes the brain a second to produce this experience of you as someone substantial in a tangible world, what you experience to be and see now is the past. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The world of the inner senses is heard, felt and tasted with the same organs that hear, feel and taste the world of the outer senses, so the differentiation between inner and outer senses does not refer to them being different organs, but that the abstract world of the inner senses seems to be inside, as the frequencies of nothingness hitting the senses have not yet been processed by the brain into a conscious experience of you as someone tangible in a substantial world, that appears to be outside of you.

Read more about the differentiation between inner and outer senses in What and where are the inner and outer senses.

The world of the inner senses, therefore, consists of nothing but the raw data hitting the senses. The abstractness of this, however, is always more or less coloured by the world of the outer senses, because there is no abstractness to experience without someone to experience it. In other words, 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. Thus the world of the inner senses is coloured by your personality.

The empty breath does not come from consciousness

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 believes 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 even though the world of the inner senses actually is colourless, you may believe to see colours and other things in it based on your memories from the world of the outer senses, that is full of colours and other apparently exciting things the brain has fabricated from the raw data, it claims to receive from the senses. See Eyes do not see, they translate.

In the article A reintroduction to the inner senses, enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it, you can read more about inner senses, the glimpses of enlightenment you can have there and the total termination of inner as well as outer senses in the enlightenment of that which is one.

If you do not believe to be in the world defined by time and space, that the brain uses one second to construct from the unprocessed frequencies of the inner senses, this second of unprocessed data is extended.

But not believing to be someone in a world defined by time and space is not something you can decide, because that enhances the belief that you are someone definitive. No worries. The empty breath takes care of that, if you do not interfere with it, or at least have the willingness to be guided by it, which realistically speaking means to acknowledge, that you are not willing to be guided.

If you insist in opening up to the empty breath in your own way and pace, you are fencing it off, because only in a world defined by time and space is there something to open up to.

The empty breath is beyond meaning

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. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

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.

Please do not try to process what you are reading now in order to make it fit into the understanding, you have established of what you believe to be, but keep going with the speed of thoughts and/or emotions that are popping up, so the uncontrolled speed of them ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

That takes less time than reading this paragraph about it and feels like the body is effortlessly replaced by emptiness, which may last for a split second or up to 20 minutes, 45 at most. See INTRO TO HACK #4.5, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

No effort has to be made for this to occur. On the contrary. It happens automatically when no effort is made to control thoughts and feelings because when not hold back, they are like a river rushing back to its source. It is not that which is one though, as it cannot be the source of anything since that requires more than one. For the same reason, that which is one can neither be found or returned to.

So the source, that the river of thoughts and feelings return to, is the empty space outside of oneness in which a world where there seems to be more than one is imagined to be. See also the article Duality is a simulated reality on top of non-duality.

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

The empty breath is nothing but emptiness

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. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Being centred is not required for connecting with the empty breath
The new age ideas about being still, centred and whatnot are not gonna help you in regards to taking off to the empty breath, as those ideas are based on excluding something, which only can be carried out by exercising control and the empty breath is all about going with the flow.

Yet the connectedness with the empty breath automatically results in stillness – or rather the absence of it as well as the absence of 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 contrasts must be acknowledged in order to be cancelled out, there may at first be a phase where one of the sides in a contrast, for example noise, seems very annoying.

Be aware, 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.

Confusion functions great as a take-off to the empty breath

Confusion functions great as a take-off to the empty breath. That is unless you try to clarify what is going on. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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.**

When included, the desire cannot be defined as a yearning for more of something specific like for example more energy, power, money, love, freedom or wisdom. Thus nothing specific is desired, wherefore there is no need to organise thoughts and feelings in a way, that makes them useful for achieving something specific. Consequently, they can move in their own chaotic and speedy way, which is exactly 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 as a take-off to the empty breath. This is as easy as to follow the flow of erotic energy into a specific part of your body, where it builds up until it explodes and you feel released.

But just like the rain does not stop when using an umbrella, tensions and emotions may still seem to be there, when connected with the empty breath. Due to its indifference, however, nothing seems disturbing

Anything upsetting can be used as a take-off to the empty breath
Any intense meeting or experience can be used as a take-off to the empty breath, for example, excessive sex. Feeling depressed also works fine, provided there is no attempt to edit it or suppress it with food or in any other way hang onto it in order to enhance the belief in being someone definitive.

Yet it is never too late to use the frustration, that clinging on to something entails, as a take-off to the empty breath. Pain can also be used for this, where after it just like depression or any addiction, vanishes in a puff of nothingness from your awareness.

Uncontrolled speed automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath

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.* The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A take-off to the empty breath may be experienced as if it is ignited in the top of the head, so instead of trying to get upsetting thoughts and feelings out of it by justifying them with the world, let them accumulate there until the gentle explosion of them extends out of the head and the operator of the empty breath welcomes you by expanding the body with empty space*, so it does not seem to be substantial and therefore not to differ from the empty space, that is used to make it appear as if it is substantial.*

In the above take-off, you settled 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.

The empty breath is a state of not-knowing

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 you are someone definitive. That is until you again relate to the consciousness of being someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, and the blissful memories from a state of not-knowing popup. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

But as the connectedness with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing – also 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 other articles about the empty breath is based on vague memories of it popping up when returning to the consciousness of being someone in a world defined by time and space.*

Should you feel a bit frustrated from reading this article about how to connect with the empty breath, thinking it lacks a decent introduction and precise explanation of what it is and feels like, use the frustration as a take-off to the empty breath and feel a big smile expanding your body or as if you are one big fountain of joy. There is no right way to feel the empty breath, so just go with the flow as it comes to you.

At first, it may not be felt it in the exciting ways described especially in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?. It may not be felt at all, because its main attribute is indifference (see The empty breath´ undoes all conditioning). Yet not feeling the stress, that comes from the excitement of 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 #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing, or hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone that is more explanatory, or hack #4.3, The basic self versus the special one, which is an introduction to being someone or not.

The empty breath takes off into nowhere

A NOTE ABOUT ALEXIUS:
The above way to connect with the empty breath is deduced from Alexius´ connection with it, and since its one and only real feature is to undo the belief in being someone definitive, this will going to work for everybody believing to be so. That is if there is a wish to have this belief undone.

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

How Alexius ended up deducing ways of taking off to the empty breath, as described in hack #4.4 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.

Also, 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 in order 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 willingness 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 this in the next article Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.
