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 image in a photo album.

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 every where 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.

Followed a guru for four years in the early 70s, and were living in an Ashram, when not being sent around to give Satsang. Here I am the chauffeur for the guru. The photo is a snapshot of an image in a photo album.

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

A MAN TO BE COMPARED TO THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE: At 22 years old I for a moment forgot what an where I was and as nothing fall through a black hole into 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 that wrote about the first vegetarian restaurant 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 wonderful sons. The photo is a snapshot of an image in an old magazine.

FAMILY MAN: Settled as a family with two wonderful 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 image in a photo album.

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 on a school for that in the beginning of the 90s. The photo is a snapshot of an image in a photo album.

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 had been 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 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, where I was stuck for two days without food and water, to a helicopter, I 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 saved. 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 in a roller coaster!

NON TEACHINGS MAN: Writing my non teachings since 63 years old.

NO FACEBOOK MAN: I 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 furnitures and pets, but in the sense that I do not consider any of it as mine. The same apply to my non teachingsthough besides from being published as a blog, they are also published on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.

I am and have nothing, so there is not something to stop the flow of my non teachings, which also are nothing, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, since formlessness is 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.
