The Enlightened Non-Teacher, physical intro

In the primordial forest of La Gomera. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

My name is Alexius – by some shortened to Alex. I was born and grew up in Denmark, but nowadays I live partly there and on La Gomera, which is a small Canary island close to West Sahara in Africa. Here is a short listing of what I have appeared to be, do and have in the world for the past 67 years:

Not very old and like now no idea about what and where I am. Fortunately going with the flow works great. The photo is a snapshot of an analogue image.

NO EDUCATION MAN
Isn´t it amazing what one can do, when one has no education and does not know, what one does or is.

16 years old and just left school, I started working with children. Here I am a year later sitting furthermost to the left in a house the children, and I had built together. The photo is a snapshot of an image in an old magazine.

KID MAN
Worked with children from I was 16. Two of the bestselling newspapers in my native country wrote articles about it.

TRAVELLING MAN
Living in a Volkswagen bus with my girlfriend of that time here there and everywhere in Europe from 18 years old.

TAXI MAN
From 19 years old.

FRENCH MAN
Living in an old village in the south of France from 21 years old.

ASHRAM MAN
A monk for four years from 22 years old.

ENLIGHTENMENT MAN OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
At 22 years old I for a moment forgot what an where I was and as nothing falls through a black hole into that which is one. Hence I am to be compared to that which is one.

Had about 30 employees in my restaurants and bars and were seldom working there myself, although it may look like that in this photo from the late 70s, but that was just to please the photographer from one of the many newspapers writing about my vegetarian restaurant, which was the first of its kind in my native country. The photo is a snapshot of an image in an old newspaper.

BUSINESS MAN
Started two restaurants and two bars from scratch, when 26 years old. One of the restaurants was the first vegetarian restaurant in my native country. The other was amongst the first restaurants nominated to Guide Michelin. A fictional movie based on of one of my bars and its characters of models, punks and musicians have been produced by the Danish Television, who also produced ´The Killing´. Had no money when I started the business adventure, as I had just moved out of an Ashram, but quickly I became a millionaire. Lost it all again though and finished 12 years later with no money.

Here as a family man with our first dog. Later the family was extended by two beautiful sons. The photo is a snapshot of an image in an old magazine.

FAMILY MAN
Settled as a family with two beautiful sons from when 30 years old.

MUSIC MAN
Dj´ed on discos with house and techno music and in the radio with R&B from 35 years old.

Chilling out in the late 80s. The photo is a snapshot of an analogue image.

NOT A SPECIAL MAN
After years of intense business, I felt like not doing much for some time apart from chilling out – from 38 years old.

Were doing healing massage for a while. Here I am an assistant on a school for that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Were doing healing massage for a while. Here as an assistant at a school for that at the beginning of the 90s. The photo is a snapshot of an analogue image.

HEALING MAN
Practising aura massage from 41 years old.

TV MAN
Producing local television from 42 years old.

In a roller skater celebrating with the students, I was a teacher of graphic design in the 90s. The photo is one of those automatically shot during a ride in a roller coaster.

TEACHING MAN
A teacher in graphic design from 43 years old on a Danish School for public relations.

MEDIA MAN
Delivering creative solution for big and small companies through my company Mediaman from I 45 years old.

PHOTO MAN
Have been on Google’s list of the best photographers for a couple of years, though not a photographer but just someone having fun shooting photos unposed and unarranged with no care for a tripod, the right exposure, angle, frame, white balance and whatnot. Do not consider these things as tools for making an accurate replicate of reality – but instead for creating a photo that is reminiscent of the moment as I experienced it from 56 years old.

MAN OF THE FUTURE
When I was 57, The Danish Institute of Future Research selected me as a role model for the future and called me a hero of the future.

ART MAN
Curator of several art sites on Google+ from 59 years old.

Being wired up from the rainforest to a helicopter, I realised every moment is the perfect moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Had just been wired up from the rainforest, where I was stuck for two days without food and water, into a helicopter, and realised every moment is the perfect moment. Not in the sense that everything is perfect, but in the sense that the apparent difference between this and that makes no difference. In other words, it would have been just as perfect to die in the forest as it was to be bought back in the world. The photo was shot by one of the saviours of Alexius.

MAN OF THE MOMENT
When 61 years old I was rescued by a helicopter from a rainforest after two days without food and water, I realised every moment is the perfect moment. I am every moment – moments of listening to music, shooting photos, hiking in the mountains, hanging out with friends, chilling to the sunset, watching movies, playing with my cats, writing non-teaching articles, having a daydream or whatever comes my way. The moments may be spiced up by passing feelings of going up and down – like having fun on a roller coaster!

NON-TEACHINGS MAN
Writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings since 63 years old.

NO FACEBOOK MAN
Do not use FB or any other social media to tell how much I am or have since what I appear to be and have is nothing. This is not in the sense that I do not have a body installed in an apartment with beautiful pieces of furniture and pets, but in the sense that there is no ´I´ with a need to be defined by this, neither by Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

I am and have nothing, so there is not something to stop the flow of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, which also is nothing, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Selfie © Alexius Jorgensen.

NOTHING
Actually all the above is nothing because everything experienced or remembered is an illusion. Also, the one who seems to experience or remember it, as it takes more than one to be aware of something and there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one since formlessness is endless.

EVERYTHING
When there is nothing experienced or remembered, there is no belief to hide that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.
