The inward-facing senses versus the outer ones

PART 1:
The outward-facing senses are not a contrast to the inward-facing senses in the way black is to white, for example. It is not that the outward-facing senses are on the outside and the inward-facing ones are inside. Their names rather mean that the outward-facing senses are geared to experience a world that is perceived to be outside of you, whereas the inward-facing senses help you experience a world that does not seem to be separated from you.

The inward-facing senses is used to see a world, that does not appear to be outside of you. But it does not mean it is inside of you. There is neither anything inside or outside, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

But scientifically speaking, the world consists of empty space, so whatever tangible appearances you seem to experience is make-believe, regardless of where they appear to be. It is also make-believe that there is someone who experience is experiencing this. See Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

To undo the belief in being someone in a tangible world, it can be beneficial to not only use the outward-facing senses but also the inner ones, as what is experienced with them does not seem tangible, so you may start questioning the existence of a tangible world, and you like someone there.

Often those having visions via the inward-facing senses conclude that the world experienced with the outer ones is an illusion. And they are right – but they are not right when they conclude the world experienced with the inward-facing senses is real.

It requires more than one to experience something, and as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one because what is formless is endless, no experience is real. Nevertheless, turning down the volume of the outward-facing senses, that in the context of the physical world operate below the eyebrows, and turning up the volume of on the inner ones, which means to partially shift awareness to above the outer senses, makes it easier to undo the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

There is nothing real to find in the world of the outward-facing senses – neither in the world of the inner ones, but there it is often easier to uncover the illusion of the senses, so that there is nothing to hide that which cannot be sensed, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

The more you do not try to define anything, which is easier in the world of the inward-facing senses, as there are not so many established concepts about what it is, the less there is someone definitive experiencing anything. And when there is no belief in being someone definitive, the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome.

For some, it seems easier having the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one undone in the abstract world of the inward-facing senses. But the belief in separation can also be undone while experiencing the world of the outward-facing senses,

Read for examples the hacks Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality rules out separation, Not being exclusive but inclusive is freedom from being someone definitive for having the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one undone by using the illusion of such a world, as a means to do that. You can find them in the table of contents.

A world, where there seems to be more than one is make-believe. Yet it is you who decide what to believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Just like the outward-facing senses can be used with the sole purpose of entertaining yourself and impressing others with how much you appear to be and have, the inner ones can be used for the same purpose. Actually, that is the most common purpose for those who like to label themselves as spiritual. They believe that having visions of an inner world makes them more spiritual and different from others.

But as long as the apparent differences in a world, where there seems to be more than one, is perceived to make a difference, you are part of the very same belief in separation as those whom you think you differ from. That is, however, quickly solved in the world of the outward-facing senses because as we all share the same belief system of separation, we all in are the same boat. In other words, the apparent difference between us makes no difference, and so there is no foundation for the belief in separation.

As you can see, you do not need to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one to practically see that to believe in separation makes no sense. But without having bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, it is probably difficult to take it to the next step, which is that without separation, there is no foundation for the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

However, as such a world is a matter of belief – quantum physics states it only appears to be there when observed –you may as well believe someone, which is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, telling you that it is a hallucination – especially as this includes your appearance as someone definitive, because that means all problems are solved, as all your problems arise from the belief that you are someone at all.

If you as someone definitive is an auditory minded person, the entrance to that which is you, namely the formlessness of oneness, is eternal harmonies. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you, as someone definitive is an auditory minded person, tuning into ethereal harmonies could be the way to undo the belief in being someone. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

PART 3:
Let us imagine that though you have never heard anything other than compressed music, such as MP3, you feel that something is missing. Yet you cannot know what it is because you have never heard uncompressed music as it sounds on vinyl.

But also on vinyl, there seems to be something missing in comparison with live music – and that is nothing compared to the ethereal music you can hear in the world of the inward-facing senses when the outer ones are partly turned off. The inward-facing senses, however, you do not know, if you have always depended on the outward ones.

To depend only on the outward-facing senses can be compared to playing a game like Monopoly but without the cards, so you do not know where to go. Neither do you know where to go in the world when the inward-facing senses are not used. Without them, you cannot hear where you are – or rather, without them, you cannot hear that which is you is not in a world where there seems to be more than one.
