The function of the empty breath is to undo the belief in being someone definitive. Since what you believe to be is the sum of your most defining memories and they are stored in the brain, the empty breath does this by wiping out every bit of memory. Since it is a process over time you can enjoy the memories while they slowly but surely disappear, so that there is nothing to confirm the brains construction of you as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space to be real, and thus not something that appears to hide, there never was or will be more than the formlessness of that which is one.

»When you express yourself from your pure essence it comes back to you in bigger and unexpected ways«

This is a typical quote from the web posted by so-called spiritual people, who, though they consider themselves to be more authentic than others, need to be and have something bigger.

Most so-called spiritual teachings promoted on the internet seem to be about growth and transformation from which you are supposed to get more love, more peace, more stillness or whatever you expect will turn you into someone, which is more spiritual than others and, therefore, makes you a part of something bigger.

You are also promised more energy and power from for example living in the now, which you are guaranteed to be in the future after mastering specific ways of self-control, that will make your body more strong and able to perform more in your life that will be prolonged.

Since the reality of that which is you is the formlessness of oneness and formlessness is endless, it is not possible to be someone definitive. So if you believe to be someone at all, you are dreaming. Thus any solution in a dream is just a replacement of one illusion with another, so the only solution is to undo believe that you are there.

But whether you try to become more pure via eating more vegan or thinking more positive thoughts by exercising more self-control, you will not feel more fulfilled, because what you get is nothing but empty space in a new disguise. Thus the only thing that gets bigger is the hunger for more.

According to body psychology a person with the corners of its mouth turned downwards tends to perceive its expertiences as depressing. If that is so, it is obvious, Amma has a craving for happiness and needs to be loved by many people to feel delighted. When connected with ´the empty breath´ however, it does not matter if you feel depressed or happy, because it undoes the belief in being someone definitive, so that there is nobody to be happy or sad or anything else, so there is nothing but the bliss of emptiness.

»It is said that the lifespan of a butterfly is only a few days to a week. Yet how joyously it flies around! It spreads delight and happiness to everyone. Our lives should be like this«. This quote from Amma clearly shows, that most so-called spiritual people have the same wish as everybody else in a world where there seems to be more than one, namely to become more happy. Yet that is not something you can become in such a world, nor somewhere else, because that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to be happy or anything at all.

Spiritual growth is an idea created by the special self,* who always strives to become and have something better because that seems to confirm the belief it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. But since oneness is formless and therefore endless, there is no more to be than that which is one.

If you do not feel validated as someone special unless there seems to be some kind of drama around you, you are not looking for peace but shit, as you feed from those you judge to be problematic.

Thus a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy that only can be experienced as reality, when everything is imagined to be divided into opposing parts that define each other as something, for example light and darkness. What you believe in being, therefore, needs to be contrasted by something. Read more about that here. So if you perceive yourself to be spiritual and good, you must imagine somebody else to be carnal and evil.

The special self* needs to believe, there is something bad outside itself – television, society, the president or whatever – so it can blame that for its negative feelings and thus appear to be without them, which it imagines will make it feel better.

But that is not the way it goes. When something is excluded from yourself by blaming others for it, feelings of loss and gulit set in. Hence you do not feel good but bad. That is unless you do not try to solve your frustration, because the unedited energy of it ignites a take-off to the empty breath, and in its company the apparent difference between good and bad, negative and positive makes no difference.

Anything can be used to meet this purpose. The thoughts and feelings you choose to hang onto regarding a specific person, seem to prove you are different that person and thus someone definitive. By imagining that these thoughts and feelings are caused by that person, you also seem to verify that there is more than one. That is unless you go with the indifference of the empty breath because then the apparent difference between inside and outside makes no difference.

Since only shapes can be changed, nothing can be changed, because oneness is formless and therefore endless. In other words, if you think you can change or be transformed, you have forgotten, that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness.

The function of the empty breath is to undo the belief that there is more than that which is one
In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, you are not advised to exert self-control to achieve something better. Change is an illusion because there is no more than that which is one, and it takes more than one to complete something.

This image posted on the internet is just one of many cries for more.

The special self* seems to be quite successful in convincing itself that being and having more will make it more happy. But since more, therefore, never is enough, the special self* is never happy.

This, however, does not stop it from persuing more. On the contrary. It concludes that even more is needed. That is why it avoids the connectedness with the empty breath where the bliss of nothing is more than enough.

Thus Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are solely about undoing the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than which is one. This, however, cannot be done by avoiding to be and have more, nor by stopping thoughts, surrender to something higher or letting go of this and that because it takes more than one to do something. Thus it enhances the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than which is one.

A pencil cannot undo what it has written, but an eraser can. Likewise you cannot undo what you appear to be, but the empty breath can.

The empty breath, however, slowly but surely changes your perception of the experiences fabricated by the brain, so they do not seem to be something but nothing, wherefore there is not something to define you as someone and thus nobody to believe, it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of oneness.

As the empty breath is indifferent to the apparent differences in the world, you are going to avoid it, if you insist on what you believe to be is differs from what you believe not to be. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

APPENDIX:
In case you want to prolong your physical life, or have sensational feelings of being alive, more fit or transformed into something higher, the empty breath is not for you, because it is not offering anything but the bliss of nothing (read more about that here).

It is not possible to profit of reality. It is that which is one and it takes more than one to profit of something. Consequently, it is only possible to profit of something unreal. Hence that is what those requiring money for their so-called spiritual teachings are doing.

This is not to say, that it is bad to profit of something, but that doing so is a product of the belief, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Hence the more you profit of something, the more this belief is enhanced and, therefore, the suffering it entails.

Being in the bliss of nothing, there is not something to inflate your image, before you disconnect yourself from the empty breath, so its flow of indifference does not prevent you from showing off as more free, real, unique, genuine, authentic and/or compelling than others.

Maybe Deepak Chopra – like so many other performers – is enchanted by the attention from the listeners, and therefore feels as if he is part of something bigger. This, of course, is pure speculation, but that his teachings about perfect health has made his net worth bigger is a fact. It is more than $80 million. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Click here to see pseudo spiritual phrases generated from a list of words found in Deepak Chopra´s Twitter stream. They are randomly added together in sentences, that, just like the jargon in his and many other new agers speeches and books, is meant to be the magic spell that will make you pay to get something from them.

These charlatans do not want you to know, that there is nothing to get in regards to being that which is you because it is no diffrent from that which is one and it takes more than one to get something. In other words, becoming more free, real, unique, genuine, authentic and powerful is an illusion.

The above listing of what spiritual wannabes wish to become is compiled from an announcement for a new age course, where the participants were promisedthey would become all that and, therefore, feel more self-assured. When connected with the empty breath, however, there is no need for self-assurance, because it is indifferent to the concept of being a self or anything else.
