4.6 SX ´The empty breath´ undoes all conditioning (in the process of being updated)

There are established ways of feeling somebody else when you believe to be someone substantial in a tangible world. But there are no ways to contact the empty breath than to momentarily stop believing that you are someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since the empty breath has no personality, it has no power of its own, so if its rhythmic flow is experienced to be weaker when you appear to be sick or about to die, it is because it the rhythm is synchronised with what you believe to be. Yet the operator of the empty breath (see the paragraph of the same name in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?), which is the non-rhythmic energy behind the rhythm of the empty breath remains the same and is also experienced like that if that aspect you choose to connect with.

So if the transparent non-rhythmic energy of the empty breath is only partially experienced, when the mind or your biological system seems to be out-of-order, the problem is not the empty breath, but that you do not want to experience it fully, when there seem to be problems with your condition, because that would render it unimportant and thus question your belief in being someone definitive.

The less you believe to be substantial, the more you will feel the non-rhythmic transparency of the empty breath.

This does not mean, that you should not take care of the body and the mind, as long as they appear to be there, and consult a qualified health care professional to deal with potential problems – just like you bring your car to a garage for a check-up, even though it is not you.

When you do not know anything, there is not somebody to be sad, neither happy –nor to be anybody or anywhere specific. Thus there is nothing but emptiness, and that is pure bliss.

The achievement of something in a substantial world requires much effort, but as the empty breath is not substantial, no effort is needed to achieve it. In fact, you miss it, if you are doing something to achieve it.

There is no help to get if you do not feel the transparent bliss of the empty breath, as it is a result of your own choice in believing to be someone substantial. Yet this choice is automatically changed, when everything you know is unlearned, so read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings until nobody is reading it.

As everything you have you have learned enforces the belief, that you are someone definitive – whether that is experienced to be in a so-called spiritual or physical body – you need to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and apply their duality hacks again and again to unlearn everything you have learned, so that is not automatically an awareness of something, as that enhances the belief in being someone.

Not being conscious of something, neither the empty breath, there is nothing to make perfect. Consequently, you are not benumbed in an experience of yourself as someone definitive but in the flow of nothingness.

This does not necessarily mean, that there are no feelings of sorrow or joy passing by, but that the apparent difference does not make a difference. Yet you should not go with the flow of the empty breath while driving a car, for example, where you need to be conscious about all the apparent differences in the traffic so you can follow your conditioned response to these differences. Read more about conditioned responses here.

The empty breath undoes your conditioned belief in being someone definitive, because it sets in before there is a conscious recognition of someone at all. Read more about it here.

But while brushing your teeth, doing the dishes, taking a walk in the park or something else, that does not crave a lot of attention, you can follow the flow of the empty breath, and thus bypass your conditioning, so it does not stop you from discovering new ways of taking care of the body and the life you seem to have inside it.

Hence the appearance of you as someone definitive does not seem to drag you down but to enhance the connection with the empty breath, and thus support you in having the belief in being someone definitive undone.

The most exciting aspect of ´the empty breath´, namely indifference, is not exciting but liberating.

The empty breath can be felt in many exciting ways, but its most exciting way is actually not exciting, because you hardly feel it, as due to the indifference of the empty breath the apparent differences of the world is not perceived to make a difference, and so the foundation for separation is gone. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath can be felt in many exciting ways. The most exciting way though cannot be felt, because it is not a feeling, but indifference to the apparent differences experienced in a world defined by time and space and thus to the foundation of feeling anything, namely separation. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Physically speaking the empty breath is best felt when the air is coming in and out through the nose. Yet not as if it is you who do the breathing, but as if it is an ´engine´ inside the body that first expands the abdomen, secondly the belly and lastly the chest. Then a short break before it goes the other way around in order to contract the body. And on and on. It feels like there is hardly any air coming in and out of the nose but that the breath remains within the body all the time.

Please be aware, that this is not a factual description of how breathing is carried out when the empty breath is in the driving seat, but a description of how it feels. It is not something you should try to replicate by doing deep breaths and whatnot. In fact, it has nothing to do with you taking a deep breath, as the whole concept of the empty breath is that you do nothing.

Doing Nordic Walking – or rather following the flow of it – may help you in being able not to do something. It may also help you to expose the defence mechanisms, that you have built up in the body against going with the flow of the empty breath.

It is probably not the connection itself with  a Fitbit watch, for example, that excites you, but how it motivates you to exercise and consequently feel more comfortable inside a body. Likewise it is not necessarily the connection with the empty breath that makes you feel good, but that its indifference undoes the belief, it is possible to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. Thus there is nobody to be bothered about the problems that seem to arise from appearing to be someone there. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

When you are connected with a Fitbit watch for example, you do not get an exceptional feeling from the connection itself, but rather from the data you are receiving. Likewise you probably do not feel excited, when you are connected with the empty breath, as its radiance of indifference makes you indifferent to the apparent differences in a world defined by time and space. But as this makes it impossible established separation to be real, there does not seem to be anybody feeling anything, which is pure bliss.

Yet it is not important to undo all these defence mechanisms. Having the willingness to do so is enough to feel the connection with the empty breath.* Neither is it important in which of the ways described in the previous article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? that you feel it, or if it is felt in another way.

Though these ways of feeling the empty breath definitely are very exciting, the most exciting way to feel it – or rather not feeling it – is simply to follow its consistent flow of indifference. Since that makes you indifferent to the apparent differences in the world where you appear to be, there does not seem to be anybody feeling anything but the bliss from being indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive.

If the body seems to get better, when you feel connected with the empty breath, it is not because of the empty breath – at least not directly – because it does not know of something that needs improvement. Indirectly though it is due to the empty breath, as in its presence you are not in the default mode of doing something about something, so the body is not disturbed by you trying to connect it with non-physical like the mind, crystal energies and whatnot.

To imagine that the body is connected with the mind** or something spiritual is like thinking there is a connection between the body and a coat, it is wearing. Though the coat seems to go where the body goes, there is no communication.

This is like assuming there is a connection between you and the world in a movie you are watching. This connection is entirely imaginative. The world in the movie is unaffected by the thoughts or feelings you appear to have about it, neither does it have the power to cause them, unless you imagine that it has.

Metaphorically speaking we have disconnected the body from its source, and as we mistake that for the mind or the soul, we try to fix the problem by connecting the body with the mind and/or soul. The physical elements of the body though do not mix with mental or spiritual concepts.

Thus the attempt to do this results in so-called psychosomatic disorders and frustrated thoughts and feelings about how to heal them. Unfortunately, this disturbance is perceived as proof of such a connection instead of a warning against it.

The belief in a body-mind connection is a confusion of levels** – just like if you feel your body is connected with somebody you are chatting with on the phone. Though there may be a connection of minds, there is no connection of bodies.

Fortunately, the empty breath is indifferent to whatever you seem to think or feel, and so are you when connected with it. This does not mean it heals the body, but that it liberates it from the sick ideas you have forced upon it so that it is straightforward for a qualified health care professional to bring order in its biological system. More about this here.
