The ins and outs of the inner senses

There is no structure in the inner breath like there is in the world of the outer senses, where everything is organised into good and bad, so it seems that the world is divided in right and wrong. But it requires much focus to continuously uphold these judgment, so it is very relaxing instead to let the inner breath take over and be an automatic gear between the world of the outer and inner senses. In this way the relaxation you get from not having to focus in the abstract world of the inner senses becomes the foundation for perceiving the apparent stressing world of the outer senses.

It may seem frightening to not give your full attention to the structured world of the outer senses, and instead be in automatic gear via the unstructured flow of the inner breath. This fear though is unfounded, because without the constant control, that is needed to keep the world of the outer senses organised in the way you expect it to be, you can have a laid-back life in the world of the outer senses while being guided by the inner breath.

To keep up the appearance of being someone specific you must always be vigilant towards what others think. Yet you do not know, what they think. It is something you think, they think. In other words, it is nobody else than yourself, that you are up against.

It will guide you back and forth between the outer and inner senses, so that the relaxation you get from the world of the inner senses, which contrary to the outer senses is not based on control, will be the basis of how the world of the outer senses is experienced.

The inner breath can be felt within the non definitive borders of a ball like thing with the lower part of it passing through the abdomen or the stomach and the upper through the head or above it. The swing of the inner breath, that may be the most felt aspect of it, is shaped like a curved yin yang line – but less curved and not with a definitive form – within this ball. It can be felt inside the body swinging from the back to the front of it or up and down, but it can also be felt swinging from side to side and everywhere in between these directions.

Sensing all directions of the swing simultaneously is like feeling no swing at all – as if the world stands still. Mostly though it is the swing from the back to the front of the body that is felt, maybe combined with the up/down swing. The swing may be felt in the abdomen, stomach or chest or all places at once.

The inner breath can be felt in many ways, among others like riding on two big waves in alignment with the rhythm of the breath.

The swing of the inner breath is powered by an extreme fast and chaotic energy, that is sensed both inside and outside the body within the non definitive borders of the ball that make up the inner breath, as if it is going here, there and everywhere without going anywhere. It feels like being a transparent fountain of joy. Going around the non definitive border of the ball feels like surfing two waves formed like the two parts of an yin yang sign (with no dots in it). In general you just feel one of aspects of the inner breath at a time. But maybe you feel aspects, I have not sensed yet.

This article, however, is not about the inner breath, so if you want a more detailed explanation of What does the inner breath feel like read that article, or read Take-offs to the inner breath for connecting with it, or The nature of the inner breath to learn about its purpose. But now onto the subject of this article, namely the inner senses.

Fearing the inner breath is not unfounded, if you want to remain as someone specific in a world defined by time and space, because the inner breath guides you into the world of the inner senses, where you cannot remain as someone definitive.

So if you fear the inner breath, you know it is because you believe to be someone definitive, and as this belief is undone by the inner breath, there is nothing to fear if you connect with it.

Personal experiences in the world of the inner senses
In my case the main period for mostly experiencing the world of the inner senses and having glimpses of enlightenment is when going to bed. Feeling the connectedness with the inner breath quickly transports me into the world of the inner senses – not to the extent though that I leave the world of the outer senses, but that it gets minimum attention. How little differs. At times it is not just a little but quite much with lots of thoughts and emotions rushing around, but here is a description of a night where most of the awareness is on the world of the inner senses.

Please do not ask me, where the border between the inner and outer senses are. The inner breath takes care of the switch between them, so I am not aware of it.

Laying in the bed with a sleeping mask* on and earphones with triple flange sleeves* plugged into my ears the transparent sound of the inner breath** seems to transport me into worlds of light, where lucid flowers or whole universes unfold rapidly or very slowly until thoughts or feelings are trying to surface and sleep sets in. Going into deep sleep, the visions of light continue, and when I wake up early in the morning they turn into ethereal harmonies.

It does not seem exciting to me anymore to travel in worlds of light. I am rather naturally attracted to leaving everything behind and as nothing sucked though a black hole into that which is one. It seems though, that I am to return in order to complete my non teachings. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It seems like ages ago when I enjoyed traveling in worlds of light. I rather leave everything behind and as nothing float though a black hole into that which is one. It seems though, that writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings is my way of leaving everything behind. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Well, actually it is many years ago the glimpses of enlightenment were exciting journeys in enchanted worlds of light. Nowadays I do not care much for such visions, that mostly are exciting because they are recognizable, so instead it is visions of abstractness. That is until they swirl together around a black hole, which is neither exciting or relaxing. It just is.

The vibration, that Aum or Sohang symbolises***, is another aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one, that can be experienced through the inner senses. In my case it pops up every now and then during the day as a natural extension of the inner breath. The taste of the enlightenment of that which is one also pops up – like for example now that I am writing about it..

Enlightenment of that which is one is impersonal, but the vague memories of it is filtered by the personality, that is not able to embrace it as one perpetual present, so it is described as a personal experience in time and space. Glimpses of enlightenment is solely a personal experience.

Eyes cannot see – they translate, or it is rather the brain that translate all the otherwise meaningless info it receives through the eyes according to how it is conditioned to see the world. If it receives info that does not fit into its image of the world, it twist it until it does. In other words, you have no idea about what is written in this article or what is in the world. If you acknowledge this you do not need to read my non teachings, because this acknowledgement bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You do not know what is written in this article, because what you think you read is coloured by your interpretation
Be aware that the above is how Alexius experiences the world of the inner senses, when the world of the outer senses gets less attention or absolutely none. But just like you and I are probably experiencing things in the world of the outer senses differently, the same may apply to the glimpses of enlightenment from the world of the inner senses – and regarding the enlightenment of that which is one our vague memories of it most likely is selective.

In other words, the descriptions you get in Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings of the enlightenment of that which is one and the glimpses of it are not meant to be absolute. Besides you have actually not read my descriptions, but your interpretations of them.

The night can be full of restless dreams, that seem very real, until I quietly wake up to the sound of ethereal music, that cancels out the confusion of the night, so full of clarity I get out of the bed.

Neither are my experience the same every night. Some nights thoughts or emotions seem to take over and take me into the world of the outer senses. No worries, if that happens to you too. It is a great way to see, that thoughts and emotions have no power, and that power is not necessary when there is no need to be someone specific.

The key to opening up to the world of the inner senses is purpose, namely the purpose of not using the outer senses to experience a tangible world, as if it is outside of you.

If the the purpose of putting on a sleeping mask is to cancel out the ligt from the world of the outer senses, you will be in the light of the inner senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If the purpose of putting on a sleeping mask is to cancel out the light from the world of the outer senses, there will be lucid light coming from world of the inner senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Anything definable blocks out the full tour of the inner senses
You cannot do something to be in the world of the inner senses, because the intention of doing something in order to be or have something only works in the apparent tangible world of the outer senses. But for the very same reason you can do something to not experience the world of the outer senses – for example putting on a sleeping mask.

Best to forget all the descriptions from Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings about the glimpses of enlightenment, as they turn them into something specific, and that cannot be replicated in the world of the inner senses.

If you remember the last time you travelled in incredible worlds of lucid light and you want more excitement like that, you will not get it, because defining glimpses of enlightenment in this way turn them into an experience of the outer senses, because only there does it seem possible to experience something specifically more than once. In other words, if trying to interpret the glimpses of the enlightenment in the way you do in the world of the outer senses, there will be no more glimpses to experience.

If you completely turn off the outer senses – or rather have the willingness to do so – you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. No image can be shown of that, because it cannot be experienced, as to experience something requires more than one. Glimpses of enlightenment though can be experienced. One of the last glimpses you may have before consciousness or anything else that requires more than one is completely gone, could be something like this image looking like a horse head, which a black hole may look like just before light is exploding out of it or maybe into it. There is not someone there to know. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To turn off the outer senses partially or fully
The easiest way to switch between the outer and inner senses is of course to let the inner breath take care of it – see The nature of the inner breath – but until you are willing to choose not to choose but to be guided by the inner breath the below suggestion may be of help.

You turn off the outer senses by not selecting specific thoughts and feelings to be excluded, but instead include them all, so that there are no contrasts left – for example good and bad – and consequently nothing to define you as someone specific. If the inclusion is not complete but partial you have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, and if it is complete there are not someone to hide the enlightenment of that which is one.

Do not pay too much attention to the world of the outer senses, when in the world of the inner senses, but let it be there somewhere in the background. When moving in the world of the outer senses, it is often best hardly to pay attention to the inner senses except as a blissful memory, that helps you to focus on what you seem to be doing in the world of the outer senses without being deceived by it.

There are no rules though, so there may be times where the two worlds seem to mix in a beneficial way, but why not fully enjoy the taste of wine on the premises of the world of the outer senses, and totally space out when you fly through amazing worlds of abstract light in the world of the inner senses.

In other words, when you are solely in the world of the inner senses, the belief in being a specific body defined by time and space is undone by the enlightenment of that which is one, and so you do not appear to be in a world defined by time and space anymore. Neither do you appear to be somewhere else, because the belief in being someone at all is undone. Thus it is not an out-of-body experience. It is not an experience at all.

There is no consciousness of a body or that you ever seemed to be or have one, because it takes more than one to be conscious about something. In other words, there is no more than that which always was and alway will be, namely the formlessness of that which is one, because formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

*) Do not know if the Bedtime Bliss® Sleep Mask and Shure SE215 Earphone with Triple Flange Sleeves, that I use when going to sleep, are the best ones for turning off the outer senses and go into the world of the inner ones, but they seem to work for me. The earphones are probably also the best in its price range for listening to music from the world of the outer senses. However, in relation to turning off the hearing sense of the outer world, it does not matter what earphones you use, as long as they are used with Triple Flange Sleeves, because they are what so effectively cancels out the sound that is judged to be coming from outside.
