The Enlightened Non-Teacher, Personal 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:

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

When I was 16 years old I left school and started working with children. Here a year later sitting furthermost to the left in a house, we 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 that.

TRAVELLING MAN
Living in a Volkswagen bus with my girlfriend at 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 I was 21.

ASHRAM MAN
A monk for four years from I was 22.

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

Had about 30 employees in my restaurants and bars. In this photo from the late 70s, I pose for a photographer from one of the many newspapers writing about my businesses, in this case, the 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 I was 26. 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 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 I quickly became a millionaire. Lost it all again though so I finished 12 years later with no money.

Here as a family man. At first, we got two dogs and later two beautiful sons. The photo is a snapshot of an image in an old magazine.

FAMILY MAN
Settled as a family man with two beautiful sons from when I was 30.

MUSIC MAN
Dj´ed on discos with house and techno music and in the radio with R&B when I was 35.

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

NOT A SPECIAL MAN
After years of serious 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 I was 41.

TV MAN
Producing local television from I was 42.

In a roller skater celebrating with the students, I was teaching 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 I was 43 on a Danish School for public relations.

MEDIA MAN
Delivering creative solutions for big and small companies through my company Mediaman from I was 45.

PHOTO MAN
Until I recently deleted all of my photos on the web, except those included in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings was on Google’s list of the best photographers in the world. Yet I have never been a photographer – just someone having fun shooting photos unposed and unarranged without a tripod or concern for the right exposure, angle, frame but for creating a photo reminiscent of the moment as I experience it. Started doing this when I was 56.

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 I was 59.

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 into the world. The photo was shot by one of the saviours of Alexius.

MAN OF THE MOMENT
When I was 61, I realised every moment is the perfect moment after I was rescued by a helicopter from a rainforest where I had been stuck for two days without food and water.

NON-TEACHINGS MAN
Started writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings when I was 63.

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. Not in the sense that I do not have a body installed in an apartment with beautiful pieces of furniture and lovely pets, but in the sense that there is no ´I´ with a need to be defined by this, neither by the writing of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

I am and have nothing, so there is not something to stop the writing 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 without beginning and end. 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 that which is one since it is formless and therefore 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. Thus you are and have everything. This, of course, is a metaphor, because there is no one in that which is one, who is or have anything, as that requires more than one.
