The function of the empty breath is to undo the belief in being someone definitive, and since what you believe to be is the sum of your most defining memories and they are stored in the brain, its function is to wipe out every memory in the brain, so that there is nothing to confirm its construction of you as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space as real, wherefore there does not appear to be something hiding, there never was or will be more than the formlessness of that which is one. The animation is grabbed from the web.

»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 less egoistic than others, follow the egos craving for more and 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 to turn you into someone, who is more spiritual than others and therefore 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 more years to come.

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 through 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 really gets bigger is the hunger for more.

According to body psychology a person with the corners of its mouth turned downwards tends to be depressed. 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´ though, 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, which is very blissful.

»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, neither somewhere else, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and it takes more than one to be happy or be anything at all.

Spiritual growth is an idea of the ego, who wants you to always strive for being or having something better, as doing so confirms the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet that is not possible, because that which is you is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to someone in a world where there seems to be more than 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.

From this follows that the ego – just like everything else in a world where there seems to be more than one – is nothing. And since nothing only can to be experienced as something, if divided in opposing parts that defines each other as something, for example light and darkness, you must always imagine being contrasted by something opposite to what you believe to be, in order to experience yourself as someone definitive.* So to feel that you are spiritual and good, you define yourself as not being the monstrous ego.

The ego needs you to believe, there is something bad in the world outside of you – television, society, the president or whatever – that is to be blamed for the way you feel, so it is something different from what you believe to be, that seems to have caused it, because in this way you are separated from something outside of you – and the ego thrives from separation.

That is unless you go with the indifference of the empty breath, because then the apparent difference between good and bad makes no difference, neither does the apparent difference between inside or outside. Thus there is no separation for the ego to thrive from.

Anything can be used to meet this purpose. The thoughts and feelings you choose to hang onto regarding a specific person, seem to prove your 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.

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

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 in order to be changed or transformed. Change is an illusion, because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

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

The ego seems to be quite successful in making everybody believe, that more is the solution to feeling lost. Yet nobody seem to realise that they never attain happiness from becoming and getting more, as more is never enough.

But this suits the ego fine, because as long as you are on a quest for more its life is insured. So it does not want you to see, that if you connect with the empty breath, there is no need for more, because the transparent 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. But this cannot  be done by avoiding being and having more, stopping thoughts, surrendering to something higher or letting go of this and that, because doing so enhances the belief in being someone definitive.

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

The empty breath, however, slowly but surely disconnect you from the experiences fabricated by the brain of a world where there seems to be more than one, so that there is not something to define you as someone definitive and thus nobody to believe, it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of oneness.
