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 everything in the brain, so that there are no memories left to confirm its construction of you as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, and thus not anything that appears to hide there is no 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 better than others just like them 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. 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.

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.

The suggested ways for becoming and/or getting more does not transform you into a being of pure essence, because what you believe to be is nothing but empty space, so whether you try to become more pure via eating more vegan or thinking more positive through exercising more self-control, 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 edges of its mouth turned downwards tends to be depressed, and if so it is obvious why Amma have a need for happiness and to be hugged by many people to feel delighted. This is not to say, she needs to change or improve to not be bothered by feelings of sadness. The problem is not what we feel, but that we believe it limits us. No worries. The empty breath undoes the belief in being someone definitive, so that there is nobody to be happy or sad or anything else but the transparent excitement of bliss.

»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. But 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 more, as doing so attest to you being someone definitive. Yet it is not possible to be someone at all, because that which is you is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to be or have something.

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 make-believe. And as nothing can be experienced in such a world without being contrasted by something that appears to differ from it, you must imagine being contrasted by something different from what you believe to be, for example the ego, in order to experience yourself as someone definitive.*

The ego needs you to believe, there is something bad outside of you – television, society, the president or whatnot – that is to be blamed for how you feel, so that something different from what you believe to be seems to have caused your state of mind and thus confirms the image you have of yourself as someone definitive separated from what appears to be outside of you. That is unless you go with the indifference of the empty breath, because then the apparent difference between inside and outside makes no difference.

Anything else can be used to meet this purpose. The specific thoughts and feelings you seem to have about a spouse or some kind of an authority figure, for example, seem to prove your existence as someone special – and by imagining, that these thoughts and feelings are caused by them, 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.

Only what appears to have a shape can be changed. Yet what is not formless does not exist, because formlessness is endless and thus everything. In other words, if you think it is possible to be and have more 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 change or be 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 promises, that when you become and have more you will be more happy, and it seems to be quite successful in making everybody believe, that more is the solution to feeling sad.

But the ego has no intention of fulfilling its promise of making you more happy from being and having more, because that would be the end of you wanting more and thus the end of itself. Yet there is no need for more, if you use what you have to connect with the empty breath, as then there is no more than the transparent excitement of bliss.

Thus Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings are solely about undoing 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 undo what the pencil has written. Likewise you cannot undo what you appear to be, but the empty breath can.

Undoing this belief is not something that you can do 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. The empty breath, however, slowly but surely erases all experiences, so that they cannot define you as someone definitive and thus cannot believe, it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of oneness.
