++ To be ´alone together´ is to undo the belief in separation

Being alone together does not mean that you are together with others who also are alone, but that there is nobody else than you, so everything experienced is you. In other words, you are alone together with your fantasy of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You cannot appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one without being divided into more than one. Thus you benefit from devoting yourself to something or somebody you love, rather than spending time on despising others, as the latter seems to make you appear even more definitive, which enhances the feeling of being wrong and therefore the need to hide the feeling of inferiority by making others wrong.

That is of course unless you, for example, perceive your despising of others as something you pretend to be (see hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive) or as something symbolising the formlessness of life (see hack #2.2 Everything experienced is a symbol of life).

Whether you devote yourself to something or somebody in the physical, online or astral world or simply in your mind, where the experience of any world is manufactured, makes no difference, because all experiences are equally illusionary, since it takes more than one to experience something, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

As the experience of you being separated from others in a world where there seems to be more than one therefore only is possible when your belief that there is more than that which is one, this belief is what makes you and the world appear to be separated from that which is one.

Hence you return to that which is one as you believe to have left it, namely as more than one. Not in a literal sense, because there is no more than that which is one, but in the sense that you include everything* you believe not to be you so that you return alone together**, which is exactly like you imagine to have left it.

A safe thing is to devote yourself to is one of the duality hacks or as many as you feel like. With the exception of the enlightenment of that which is one, they are built on duality in the sense, that they only work in a world where there seems to be more than one. Being connected with the empty breath, (see hack #4, Being in a state of not-knowing) for example, requires more than one.

This rhythm of more than one coming from the extraction and contraction of the breath, that correlates with the transparent sound of the empty breath or the swing of it or surfing its yin-yang like waves (see the article What does ´the empty breath´ feels like?), is the most basic contrast behind the imagination of a world where there seems to be more than one.

The empty breath is such an eminent hack of duality. You simply follow its basic rhythm of duality, namely expansion and contraction, and by doing so you return to non-duality, as you believed to have left it, namely as more than one.

The complete inclusion of the contrast, which comes from totally going with the flow of the empty breath in 20 minutes, 45 at most (see the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks), cancels out the apparent difference between the apparent opposing sides of it, wherefore nothing seems to manifest from it anymore (see the article Without contrasts there is no duality, and so nothing seems to hide there is no more than non-duality).

Since your departure from oneness is make-believe, so is your return to it. In reality, nobody returns to that which is one and nobody needs to, because nobody has left it, as it is formless and therefore endless.

That is why, what the empty breath or one of the other duality hacks accomplishes is not the undoing of a world where there seems to be more than one, but the undoing of the belief that you are someone in such a world.

This belief is erased through the implementation of the duality hacks (see Duality HacksExtra Duality Hacks and More Duality Hacks), so that there is not someone to experience a world where there seems to be more than one, and therefore nothing to hide there was and never will be more than that which is one.

**) You can read especially about alone together in hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one. It is also mentioned in the below articles:


NOTE: This article is an appendix to the last part in the previous article A reintroduction to the inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it about alone together. Both articles are part of hack #5-7.3 The inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

[…] *****) Other main contrasts to include if you want to speed up the process of undoing the belief in being someone definitive are within and without, past and future, giving and receiving plus high and low. The latter is very much in the family of good and bad, and for some this may apply to the first one as well (more about good and bad in the coming article In a perfect moment everything is alright as it is). The most basic contrast, however, is expansion and contraction. If you connect with the inner breath (see the article Take-offs to the inner breath) this rhythmic contrast will slowly but surely undo itself and thereby the whole experience of a physical or astral world, as it is based on the belief that it is possible to expand and contract something (see the article To be ´alone together´ is to undo the belief in separation).
