++ What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

The inner breath is not restricted to be felt as a specific form, neither to only be felt inside. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath is not restricted to being something specific, so it cannot be felt as something definitive. Yet it can be felt anywhere within its non-definitive framework – whether that appears to be inside or outside your body – but never as if it is constantly the same, although it is constantly there.

The empty breath can be felt in many different ways within its non-definable framework of a ball like thing, that passes through the head – or above it – and the stomach or below it. It can therefore be felt inside as well as and outside of what is perceived to be your body. The empty breath, however, does not perceive any difference between inside and outside.

This is not so because the empty breath sees everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as energy, but because it everything there – whether so-called spiritual or mundane – as an illusion (see All experiences are equally unreal), as it takes more than one to experience something and there is no more than that which is one, since oneness is formless and therefore endless.

In other words, everything experienced is construction made from nothing but empty space (see the article ´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be, that is a preface to this one).

Having an out-of-body experience is based on the belief that you are someone in a body, which is the opposite of the experience that comes from the connectedness with the empty breath, as it undoes the belief that you are someone definitive. See also the article Believing to be in or outside the body is equally insane.

Feeling it the empty breath is not an out-of-body experience, but rather an experience of being indifferent to the body as well as any other appearance – including your loved ones and whatnot. This does not mean that you do not take care of the body, loved ones and whatnot, but that it makes no difference, if doing so seems to pay off.

In the connectedness with the empty breath there is nothing that appears to be disturbing, but trying to connect with it everything seems disturbing, because the purpose of trying is delaying, so you want to be disturbed.

The inner breath has no definitive center or anything else in a fixed position, so your experience of it may be different from mine. Maybe you primarily experience it in the stomach, in the chest or both inside and outside of your body within the non definitive borders of a ball. It may change from moment to moment, as  – unlike this image – it is not static. This image however illustrates when all its movements are experienced simultaneously, which feels as if the everything stands still.

The empty breath has no definitive centre or border or anything else in a fixed position. Everything is constantly moving, so the experience of it may change from moment to moment, as if it is in the stomach, in the chest or both inside and outside of the body within the non-definable framework of it. If your experience, however, differ from the descriptions in this article, go with flow of it as it is experienced in your biological system.

Feelings are subjective
If you are very future minded the empty breath may be felt as coming from somewhere in front of you, whereas being minded towards the past it may be felt to come from back of you. And if you are into the concepts of living in the now, being centred and balanced, it may be felt as it has a fixed centre. In other words, the experience of it is coloured by own your conditioning.

This is not a problem for the empty breath, because contrary to you it has no need to be acknowledged as special. So whether you experience it in the stomach, the chest, inside or outside of the body it carries out its one and only purpose, namely to make you indifferent to the apparent different experiences in the world where you believe to be.

One way to get in touch with the indifference of the empty breath is to replicate the below descriptions of it. Just remember, as the empty breath is not static, the experienced of it is bound to change from moment to moment and there may be more ways to experience it than described in this article.

No worries. Feeling the empty breath is not about approaching it in the right way, but going with the flow. It is only in the world of the outer senses, you must to do the right thing so you can feel better than those judged to be wrong.

The empty breath is indifferent to all the apparent differences of the world, so the more you connect with it, the more you adapt to its indifference and the less you feel a need to appear as someone who makes a difference.

I am not a talented illustrator, so instead of making an illustration of the inner breath, I have manipulated an image found on the internet in order to give you an idea of the simultaneously movements inside it.

This is a scientific image found on the internet that Alexius has manipulated in order to give you an idea of the simultaneously movements inside the empty breath.

A basic intro to the non-definitive form of the empty breath
The empty breath has the form of a ball with lots of circles moving inside it, but contrary to what you see in the illustration to the right, it does not have a definitive centre or border. Neither do the circles inside it, and there are so many that there is no space between them. Nor are they empty. Each one of them contains two yin yang like waves, looking a bit like in the second image from here.

That the empty breath has a non-definitive form does not only mean that the edges of it are blurry but that neither the size or shape is constant. It may grow bigger and smaller and not necessarily all over, so that momentarily it feels to be more pear-shaped than circular.

The biggest part of the pear-shape can be positioned in the top as well as in the bottom, in the sides or anywhere in between. And as the apparent centre of each one of the circles appearing to be inside the non-definitive ball, that makes up the empty breath, are floating around, there is no fixed centre. 

Even though there appear to be so many circles inside the non-definitive boundaries of the empty breath, that are moving in each their own direction with each their own yin yang like formed waves inside them, they are actually fused into one movement of two yin yang like waves moving in all directions – at bit like in the next animation or in the second to last animation of this article.

But as the above is very difficult to comprehend in a world where life seems to be divided into more than one, most will probably not feel the totality of the empty breath (see the simulation of this in the illustrations of the paragraphs The swing of the empty breath and The connectedness with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing further down the article).

The empty breath has no specific centre and though it seems to consists of many different movements in each their own size and shape, everything is actually fused into one singular movement. As this may be hard to comprehend in a world where there seems to be more than one you most likely just experience one of its aspects.

They may instead feel the movement of a separate circles with yin yang like waves inside the empty breath – most likely one that is circling from the abdomen or stomach around the back of the body to the top of the head or above it when breathing in, and from there going in a circular movement in front the body back to the stomach or abdomen when breathing out.

This circular movement can also be felt the other way around. The direction does not matter. What is important is to connect with the empty breath in whatever way you sense its flow. Going with the flow in this way feels like surfing the empty breath. Another way to feel it is to feel the swing of it, which contrary to sensing a circular movement in and out of the body is rather a feeling of having two very soft sticks swinging inside the body – up and down and back and forth at the same time.

Be aware though that feeling the empty breath as described in this article is only possible to the extent that you do not you care about being or having more of anything, whether that appears to be spiritual, mental, emotional or materialistic.

The five main ways of feeling the empty breath
Sensing the operator of the empty breath (see the paragraph with the same name) or the indifference of it (check the paragraph The empty breath is not the giver of joy and happiness but indifference) is a state of not-knowing that seems very still, whereas the state of no-knowing that comes from the rhythmic flow of it seems more dynamic.

The rhythm of the empty breath can be heard as a distant sound (see the paragraph The transparent sound of the empty breath) or felt inside the body (see the paragraph The swing of the empty breath), or sensed as if nobody is surfing two yin yang like waves inside and outside the body (see the next paragraph).

d76fd0833b28d1db146c08a2dd2057d91-2

Each of the circles in the non definable ball of the empty breath – see the previous illustration – consist of two yin yang like looking waves (but without the two holes), that are not fixated and probably moves in sync with the breath – or rather the breath moves in sync with them. It is therefore not so much about following the extraction and contraction of the physical breath but the flow of the empty breath, which may feel like surfing the outside of two yin yang like waves more or less in sync with the physical breath. The colours in this image only have an illustrative purpose.

Surfing the empty breath
As you can see in the illustration above to the right there are many circles inside the empty breath. What you cannot see though in the illustration is that the empty breath has no definitive border or centre and each of them contains two non-definitive waves (see the above image), that can be surfed. Please notice that although the waves looks like the two parts of an yin yang sign, they have no holes. And as they actually are colourless, the colours in the images of this article only have an illustrative purpose.

When the body is expanded by the breath, you surf the outside of the yellow wave, that starts from the abdomen or stomach and then go behind the body into the head or on top of it. From there you surf the outside of the blue wave in front of the body, while the breath is contracting the body, until you come back to the stomach or abdomen. That is if you are sensing the waves in a circle going from the back to the front of the body.

Besides surfing the waves in that circle, you can surf the waves in a circle going from the left to the right side of the body and anywhere in between these circles. No matter what circle you are surfing, you mostly feel the waves in the circular movement outside the body.

It is not about being in total synch with the rhythm of the physical expansion and contraction of the body but to follow the flow of the waves, which makes you forget the physical breath, so it is not interrupted by you being stressed or trying to impose ideas of balance, tranquillity and whatnot upon it.

Maybe the most joyous way to go with the flow of the waves is to go the whole way around one of them and then continue going the whole way around the other one, more or less in accordance with the breath extracting and contracting the body. Other even more joyous ways may reveal itself to you.

Should probably write in, that Alexius has never been surfing in the world of the outer senses – only in the world of the inner senses – so it is purely an imagined thing that it feels the same.

You can also surf the opposite way than described in the above. Going counterclockwise tends to lessen physical awareness, so this might speed up undoing the belief in being someone defined by time and space. But as already said, there is no right way of doing it. Going with the flow of the empty breath you will soon be indifferent to what is right or wrong.

You cannot be someone definitive, when going with the flow of the empty breath, so the belief in being someone separated from the formlessness of that which is one is slowly but surely being undone.

Besides it is not like in the world of the outer senses, where a wrong movement, when surfing waves like these, could be fatal, so no need to go too much into details about it.

Going with the flow without knowing where and why.

Generally speaking you will, as already stated, mostly feel the flow of the waves in one circle – probably the one going from the back to the front of the body or the other way around – but you can also jump from circle to circle or feel them all simultaneously. It is not important. Neither is it important to know all this.

As it takes more than one to feel something, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that feeling something is possible, so the more the belief in such a world is undone by the empty breath, the less you feel it.

Alexius was not aware of the empty breath in such a detailed way as described in this article, before he started writing it and took a closer look at the empty breath in order to pinpoint it. Normally he just follow the flow of it without thinking about direction and whatnot, because in his case the flow mostly results in a sense of indifference.

But if you want, it is possible to be a bit more choosy. You can surf both sides of just one of the waves in a circle, for example the wave in the back of you, if you seem to have problems with the past, or tend to be too much future oriented, or have a back pain that may benefit from being massaged by the empty breath.

You can also surf a wave on top of you, if you tend to feel down, or surf a wave passing the abdomen, if you need to be grounded. To be more or less intuitive or fact minded (the right or left side of the brain), you could surf one of the waves going sideways in relation to the body.

Even though there are many possibilities, it is not commendable to choose anything, but to go with the flow as it comes to you, because that sets the body free to heal itself (see the article ´The empty breath´ sets the body free). Neither is it commendable trying to capture all the details about the empty breath in this article, as an intellectual understanding will not help you to feeling the connectedness with the empty breath. On the contrary.

You cannot illustrate the inner breath, as it has no definitive form. This animation, however, may give you an idea about the ´structure´ of the inner breath and the high frequency of its inner movement, which seems to originate from an yin yang like curved line – not just as curved though. It feels like, it is the swing of this floating line that expands and contracts the body, so that it breathes in and out. Unlike an yin yang sign the inner breath is not a flat circle with a curved line, but rather a ball wherein the curved line swings upwards and downwards as well as sideways, forwards and backwards and everything in between. Unfortunately the animation is not able illustrate that, neither how slow the swing of it actually feels in the body. Even though it extremely active inside the ball, the experience of it is that it has all the time in the world to expand and contract the body.

It is not possible to illustrate the swing of the empty breath, as it has no definable form or movement. This animation, however, may give you an idea about how the swing of it feels like it is coming from a non-definitive curved line, that is to be compared to the line in between the two forms of an yin and yang sign – but less curved. The swing of this line expands and contracts the body, so that it breathes in and out. But unlike in an yin yang sign the swing of the empty breath is not inside a flat circle but rather a non-definable ball, wherein there are many circles with each their own curved line. Depending on where a circle is located in regards to the body the swing of the empty breath is experienced to swing upwards and downwards, sideways, forwards and backwards or anywhere in between. Unfortunately the animation is not able to really illustrate this, neither that though the swing of it is extremely powerful inside the non-definitive ball, the experience of it is that it is not in no way in a hurry to expand and contract the body.

The swing of the empty breath
What is said in the above about surfing the empty breath is generally speaking also applicable to feeling the swing of it, except that it is felt solely inside the body, where the movement of the non-definitive curved line between the two waves is sensed as a swing, that extracts and contracts the body in a steady rhythmic flow of breathing in and out. But due to the limited size of the body, this line is felt less curved and probably also shorter than the line between the two waves described above.

The steady swing of the empty breath, may seem to expand and contract the body slower than you were used to, when you assumed you were in charge of breathing. Yet the swing of the empty breath probably feels very powerful – so much indeed that in the beginning it feels like the body does not have enough room for it. Maybe it also feels as if the break in between expansion and contraction is too long.

Just like surfing the empty breath can be done with any of the circles within the non-definitive borderline of the empty breath, the swing of it can be felt through the movement of the curved line floating in the middle of any one of these circles.

In other words, the curved line is not just pumping from the back to front in relation to the body but also up and down, from side to side and everywhere in between, as you may sense in the illustration to the left. Though you can feel all these directions simultaneously, it may be so alien to you that you probably prefer following the swing of the empty breath in one direction at a time.

Alexius experience the swing of the empty breath merged into one simultaneously movement, that feels like no movement at all, when listening to the opening of the opera ´Ahhnaten´ by Philip Glass.

If you experience the swing of the empty breath in all its directions simultaneously, the fusion of them at first feels as if everything is spinning – see the speedy animation just below – but it quickly turns into a feeling of everything standing still – see the third image from here – and you feel breathless and indifferent to whatever you appear to be.

Connecting to the inner breath is fortunately not about perfection, as that requires much control and therefore blocks the inner breath to move on its own accord. The inner breath is always connected to you, but you cannot feel it if your purpose is to be someone definitive. In other words not being anybody the inner breath is not hidden. In fact it is very intense.

The swing of the empty breath is not felt as fast as the movements in this animation, but rather like a steady ongoing rhythm, that with much force expands and contracts the body. Yet the resulting breath in the body is often very subtle and probably felt to be slower than you are used to – unlike the driving force behind the rhythm of the empty breath, that is a rush of energy within the non-definable ball of it. Even though the particles of this force is moving completely unstructured and at any speed, fast or slow – a bit like in this animation – it is a subtle relief to merge with this apparent chaos, as that prevents you from focussing on anything specific and instead feel like a fountain sparkling with joy.

The operator of the empty breath
Besides from feeling the swing of the empty breath or as if you are surfing on the outer sides of two yin yang like waves in alignment with the extraction and contraction of the breath, you can also feel a constant rush of energy within the non-definable border of the empty breath. This chaotic energy at the root of the empty breath is not in line with the rhythm of the breath. Yet it is the force behind it. The feeling of it is a subtle sense of being here, there and everywhere or as if spinning through a world with no limits.

There are no rules, but it could very well be, that a take-off to ´the empty breath´ will take you to this aspect of the empty breath … and what a relief it is to float in chaos instead of having to fit into the rigid world of the outer senses.

Unlike the swing of the empty breath but like surfing its waves, this force is felt both inside and outside of the body. It is probably easier to feel this very subtle energy outside of the body, because there the dense bodily feeling is not an obstacle. If you do not try to catch it, but go with its fleetness, it feels like you are a fountain of sparkling joy.

Sensing the fleetness of the operator of the empty breath outside of the body, you will automatically be taken inside, as the operator does not know one from the other. From there you may be transferred to the rhythmic flow of surfing or feeling the swing of it.

The apparent chaos at the root of the empty breath, where you most likely land after igniting it is therefore a good starting point, if you want to feel the rhythmic flow of the empty breath.

If you out of habit try to focus on the empty breath in order to hear the transparent sound of it (see the next paragraph) or feel its rhythmic flow, your effort to pinpoint it will fence it off. A more beneficial way to approach these aspects is therefore to start in the chaos at the root of the empty breath – whether sensed in front or back of the body, on top of it or all over – as that leaves nothing specifically for you to focus on, and so there is not something definitive to block out hearing or feeling the rhythmic flow of the empty breath.

Hearing/feeling the sound of the inner breath, you feel transparent, as if there is nothing to separate you from where you appear to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Hearing or feeling the sound of the empty breath, you feel transparent, as if there is nothing to separate you from the appearances in the world of the outer senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The transparent sound of the empty breath
Just like the rhythm of a bass is not only heard but also felt in the body, so is the sound of the empty breath. It sounds like ´so´ when it expands the body and ´ham´ when contracting it.

Sometimes this rhythmic sound of ´so-ham´ seems to come from the nose and sometimes from an undefined space in the back of the head, but not like it is inside it, neither outside of it, because it feels like the head has no boundaries. At other times it seems to come from a distant space outside of you, as if the breath has nothing to do with your appearance in a body.

Feeling the sound of the empty breath is not a powerful experience like feeling the rhythm of a bass, since it cancels out the feeling of being in a specific body – as if there is no definable border between the body and its apparent surrounding. A sofa for example does not seem to be differ from the body sitting in it.

This is basically because, when connected with the empty breath the brain does not create a conscious experience of the signals hitting the sensory system of the body. Thus there is nobody to divide them into judgments of inside and outside, good and bad, high and low and so on. Hence the apparent difference in the world of the outer senses makes no difference. 

Read more about empty space in the articles Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and ´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be.

Since this means there is nothing to define a world defined by time and space, it becomes obvious that it is a fantasy made from empty space. But just like the physical reality of a game is the same whether you believe it is real or not, the physical reality of a world defined by time and space remains the same, when you grasp it is an illusion. Your relation with it, however, is forever hanged. As you know it is not real is not real you just pretend to be there (see hack #1.5 Pretending to be a person).

Do not get attached to the rhythm of the empty breath, because this rhythm will end when the body ends.

As a rhythm has a beginning and an end, it is best not to get attached to the rhythm of the empty breath as it manifest in the body. so it is not the end of you when the body cannot function anymore. In that moment it is better to merge with non rhythmic and very chaotic energy that generates the rhythm of the empty breath, or go with the indifference of the empty into the enlightenment of that which is one.

From the transparent sound of the empty breath you may naturally float into glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which the visual minded will experience as visions of light and the auditory minded as ethereal harmonies. If you are more emotional minded, you may feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises or taste the sweetness of life.

Glimpses of for example the visual aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one will merge into one, if not interpreted as something specific. The same applies to the glimpses of it that you hear, feel or taste. Hence there is no experience of that which is you being different from that which is one, so nothing seems to hide never was and never will be more than the formlessness of oneness.

There is more about the different aspects of the enlightenment of that which is one in the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment, and more about the enlightenment of that which is one in hack #4-7.2 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

The empty breath is not an appearance that can be fabricated by the manipulating the physical breath or by exercising any other form of control.

Hearing or feeling the empty breath is not something that can be provoked by the execution of specific exercises. It is the other way around. When you are not looking for something specific, the empty breath can move on its own accord.

A bicycle has nothing to do with the place, it is transporting you to.

This is not to say, that techniques cannot be helpful in regards to tone down the outer senses, so that it is easier to get in tune with the empty breath. Unfortunately most forget, that those techniques have nothing to do with what they seem to accomplish. Just like the music you listen to after having activating it from a remote control is not coming from it.

Everything fabricated – like for example this illustration of an yin yang sign – is expected to have a perfect appearance, so it supplies the belief, that you are someone special. But this is not the purpose of the empty breath. On the contrary. Its purpose is to undo the belief, that you are someone at all, which it does by helping you to see, the apparent differences in the world do not make a difference, and so it does not matter, if something appears to be perfect or not.

It is not about perfection
If you want to appear as someone important in the low-frequency world of the outer senses you must come out as if you are perfect, but in the high frequency world of the inner senses there is nothing important to be, so no perfection is needed – neither to feel the empty breath, which is the meeting point between the worlds of the outer and inner senses. All what is needed to feel it, while appearing to be in the world of the outer senses, is that your intention is to not appear as someone specific.

When people tell you to slow down and relax, they take away your only way to relaxation, because that comes from speeding up thoughts and feelings to the point of desperation, as that will make them ignite a take off to ´the empty breath´, that will synchronise the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high frequency world of the inner senses, so that speedy thoughts and feelings are not felt to cause stress but tranquility.

Whatever seems to disturb you in the low-frequency world of the outer senses will not seem stressful, when the empty breath synchs it with the high-frequency world of the inner senses – and so you slowly but surely become indifferent to your interpretation of you and others in the world of the outer senses.

Once connected with the empty breath – even just for a split second – you are embraced by it, and so no matter if you remember it or whatever you seem to think, feel or do, it remains your guide. In other words, forgetting the empty breath does not change anything, except that you will not feel the lightness of its indifference until igniting a take-off to it.

At times you may feel so pissed, that you do not want the guidance of the empty breath, because you know it will make you indifferent to those you blame for having pissed you off, so you actively override its flow* in order to make sure that those you have judged to cause injustice will get their punishment.

But as what you want for others is what you get yourself, you may be the one suffering the most. That is until you have had enough of trying to manipulate the world into appearing the way you decide is best and instead use your frustrations to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´.

The empty breath is not the giver of joy and happiness but indifference
The nature of the empty breath is not happiness but indifference, and as this releases you from the boundaries of a world defined by time and space, it may feel like as if you are in a merry-go-round world.

The inner breath gives you nothing but indifference, which is no different from life, because it is indifferent to death or any other concept.

The empty breath gives you nothing but indifference, ergo it gives you nothing but life, as that is formless and consequently indifferent to death or anything else appearing to be definable.

The empty breath is indifferent to differences, so if you do not fence it off by trying to exclude what you judge as negative in order to appear as if you are only positive, whatever you seem to feel will be interpreted by the indifference of the empty breath. Consequently feeling happy or sad is the same. Not in the sense that happiness and sadness feels the same, but in the sense that the apparent difference makes no difference.

But feelings never lasts, so if you hang onto the feeling of happiness instead of the flow of indifference, your merry-go-round world will be replaced by the opposite. This is only so, because you mistook the empty breath for the giver of happiness instead of indifference, so if you stick to the latter, it makes no difference if you seem happy or sad.

The swing of the inner breath may be experienced abruptly – like in this animation but probably a lot slower – in a s body with muscles problems from for example psoas or diafragma. There is no reason though trying to make it swing more smoothly by improving the condition of the body. The inner breath always adjust itself to the current condition of the body, so no matter how it moves it results in the same joy, providing you are not looking to be perfect.

In a sick body the swing of the empty breath may be experienced to come in bursts – a bit like in this animation but probably slower. But no matter how constraint the swing of it is experienced, the connection with it will always entail indifference, so if you stick with that the way it is experienced makes no difference.

Reasons for not feeling the empty breath
Not being able to feel the swing of the empty breath may be due to trying to hard, focussing on it, or thinking that the experience of it will make you feel something special. In these cases you are trying to fabricate a specific feeling yourself, and as the empty breath is not static its forever changing connectedness cannot be sensed.

The same applies, if you try to override it* by taking a deep breath, shortening, pushing or holding back your breath every now and then, so there is time enough to make your own plans, and thus establish you as an autonomous creature with a will of its own.

Basically there is only one reason for not feeling the empty breath, namely that you want to feel it, which is only possible when you believe to be substantial, although you just like the empty breath is nothing but empty space. In other words, feeling the empty breath is like you are gone and where you used to be there is emptiness.

The connectedness with the empty breath – either through its transparent sound, the swing of it, surfing its waves, or the sparkling force behind these rhythmic movements – is not a feeling that can be fabricated like for example a romantic evening generated by candles, special clothes, music and red wine. On the contrary. It is felt, when instead of busy trying to produce a specific feeling, you channel the busyness into a take-off to the empty breath.

Following the guidance of the empty breath you are automatically multitasking, because it does not know the concept of focusing on you being someone definitive focusing on something specific. So when you are do not feel the empty breath multitasking connects you with it.

Using other duality hacks to get to the indifference of the empty breath
As any other the duality hacks (see the main ones
in Duality Hacks and the others in Extra Duality Hacks and More Duality Hacks) except the enlightenment of that which is one induce a state of not-knowing, you can use one or more of the those, if you have problems connecting with the empty breath. 

No matter the duality hack the state of not-knowing is the same in the sense that there momentarily is no belief in being someone definitive, wherefore there are no suffering but bliss. If the bliss from the other duality hacks feels like the connectedness with the empty breath, as described in this article, is not to know, since it is a state of not-knowing.

But it is not unlikely, a state of not-knowing, regardless of which duality hack that has induced it, will take you to the operator of the empty breath and from there to the swing of the empty breath – or simple to the indifference of the empty breath.

Please do not take the comparison of the inner breath to an yin yang sign too literally. An yin yang sign is all too simplified to really illustrate the inner breath.Yet it might give you an idea about the inner breath, which can also be compared to a spiral like the galaxy in this image, that the stylish yin yang sign might a simplified version of.

Please do not take the comparison of the empty breath to an yin yang sign too literal. An yin yang sign is all too simplified to really illustrate the empty breath, which rather is to be compared to the galaxy in this image. Maybe the yin yang sign originally was a simplified illustration of such a galaxy.

The empty breath never feels the same
Even though the empty breath seems to produce a constant rhythm of expansion and contraction in the body, your experience of it may not be that it is consistent. And you are right. It is not consistent, and it has no such need. Only those believing to be somebody definitive have a need to be consistent, and as the empty breath does not believe to be anything at all, it does not need to uphold a consistent image of itself.

The empty breath can be compared to the cats in the home of Alexius. Though they go around as it pleases them, he can always count on them to greet him when he calls for them.

Feeling the empty breath is like receiving a new gift every moment. There is no way, however, to know what it is before receiving it.

The energy at the root of the inner breath may be experienced a bit like this, but in less defined forms and colors.

The energy at the root of the empty breath may be experienced a bit like this, but in less defined forms and without an awareness of colours.

Likewise he can always count on the empty breath, and even though it only moves on its own accord, it is always to be felt in one way or the other. Maybe he experiences it by several times in a row going up on just one of its waves, where after he may feel the swing of it inside of his head, and then continue to surf of its two yin yang looking like waves.

After igniting a take-off to the empty breath, he mostly land in its very fast and chaotic energy at the root of it, which feels like freedom compared to the rigid world of the outer senses. Going to bed it may be the transparency of its sound that comes to him. But first of all he simply feels the indifference of the empty breath, and since that means the apparent differences in the world does not seem to make a difference, it is hardly a feeling.

As the connection with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing there is no awareness of separation. Hence the apparent difference between past, now and future or you and Alexius does not make a difference.

It is not possible to illustrate the inner breath in its totality. This yon yang animation (please abstract from the holes) though may give you an idea of the simultaneously movement of the two waves inside the inner breath.

The connectedness with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing
Alexius does not really know what the connectedness with the empty breath feels like, because it is a state of not-knowing. However, for the purpose of writing about it, he had many very short moments of not-knowing, so that he from the vague memories of the connectedness with the empty breath quickly could write what it feels like.

If the resulting descriptions seem patchy and you are a bit confused after having read them, you can use the confusion to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. See Take-offs to ´the empty breath´Where to find ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite take-offs to ´the empty breath´.

The empty breath is to be experienced within its border, but as that is not definitive it has no specific border. In other words, if you experience the empty breath to be outside of the border it is implied to have, there is nothing wrong with that. In fact it may suggest you have forgotten to be someone definitive, because only as such will you expect to experience it somewhere in specific.

Remember that just like the experience of an orgasm is a very personal thing, so is the experience of the connectedness with the empty breath, even though what you experience is not personal and that you actually have no consciousness about it, since the connection is establish half a second before a conscious experience is created of it (see the article Where to find ´the empty breath´).

In the resulting state of not-knowing, which lasts until you insist that the apparent differences registered by the brain make a difference and you therefore must be someone separated from what you see. Until then there is nobody to experience, how blissful it is not believing to be someone definitive.

In other words, the feelings of the empty breath are memories, that pop up when you again believe to be someone definitive. And as memories are based on a very personal selection, your memories may be coloured in another way than in the above descriptions based on the memories of Alexius.

If still confused you are welcome to mail Alexius. Maybe he is be able to help you forgetting what you believe to know and want, so that there is nothing between you and the empty breath.

The look of these sound waves reminds me in some ways of how it feels to be connected with the inner breath.

The look of these sound waves reminds Alexius of how the connectedness with the empty breath often feels.

NOTE ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATIONS
Alexius searched the web for animations and still photos to illustrate the different movements of the empty breath, as he remembers them. Yet he does not know, if the illustrators had the empty breath in mind, when they made these images – but probably not. Most likely they are meant to illustrate something scientific.

The animations – except the three last ones – are grabbed from Electromagnetic Plasma Energy Light.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #4-7, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

Without perceiving the world to be different from you there is no separation, and so there is no more to wish for. This perception comes all by itself when you connect with the inner breath, as it is the giver of indifference, which is the basis for not perceiving apparent differences to make a difference.
