+ How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ (draft)

When not trying to make sense of this image but going with its absurdity, the free-flowing energy of the experience spontaneously ignites a take-off to the empty breath and its bliss of emptiness, provided there is a willingness to forget what you believe to be. The image is grabbed from the web.

If not perceiving what you read to be special, it cannot define you as unique. Thus there is not something special to obscure the bliss of nothing.

As soon as you have had enough of the frustration coming from the perception in being special and you do not try to edit or transform your feeling of desperation, the raw energy of it automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath. Since it is nothing and your current experience of something is processed by the brain from what it did imagine to receive from a gap in nothing one second ago (read more about that here), the take-off to the empty breath only takes one second.

In other words, when you connect with the empty breath, you go one second back in linear time to the nothingness that is unprocessed into something by the brain.  From there, the brains rendering of nothing into a world of something looks the same, but it is not perceived to be something and therefore not confirming you to be someone. Hence you are in the bliss of nothing.

Every time you believe in fighting something, it is to prevent being nothing.

In linear time, it may take a few more seconds, or many years, before there is nothing but the bliss of emptiness because out of reflex you probably try to force the breath through the tensions in the body, instead of going with the flow of the empty breath. It may feel as if you are fighting with the empty breath about how to breathe.

This fight, however, is solely between what you perceive to be you and an intruder because the empty breath is not intruding you. That is not possible. It does not see you as someone made of solid elements, but of emptiness just like itself. So when you stop fighting nothing, the empty breath goes through the tensions, caused by the thoughts and feelings you have excluded from your awareness by hiding them in the body, as they are nothing.

To get to this point, you must be willing to not stop the breath from going through the painful areas of the body. In this process, you may use professional healthcare services to relieve the body from spasms and headaches, for example, because the empty breath is not healing the body – only the belief that there is someone there.

What you believe in being is nothing twisted by the brain into someone experiencing something. In the presence of the empty breath, which is nothing that has not been processed into something, you become indifferent to the experience of something and thus of being someone. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Having passed the apparent physical and emotional obstacles, you turn into nobody. It may at first feel like the empty breath sets off from an engine in the abdomen as if it is an inner breath that in a slow fashion pumps air from there to extract the body (read more about that here), whereafter it returns to the engine which seems to take its time before it pumps it out again without any concept of being inside and outside of a body.

Despite that this is nothing which extracts and contracts nothing, it is in a world where everything is experienced as something also experienced to be that. It may be experienced as if you having fun surfing yin-yang like waves in the rhythmic flow of the empty breath, or being everywhere and nowhere in the sound of it, or joyfully moving with the swing of it, or being still in the abstractness behind its rhythmic flow. Read more about that in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

Although it may have been unedited speed and chaos that connected you with the empty breath, it is not a speedy or chaotic affair being connected, but like you weightlessly walk on clouds. Think of being high up in the sky in an aeroplane. Although it was the speed that ignited the take-off and it must be maintained to keep you in the air, it is not the speed you feel but a laid-back experience of being in the clouds.

Regarding speed, whether connected with the empty breath or not, we are always moving extremely fast because the Earth and thus us as well is spinning at 1.000 miles an hour, if at the equator and a little less when north and south of it, and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour. Having a static perception of ourselves, however, we do not feel the thrill of this but having a perception in sync with the brain (read more about that here), we feel it and can use it to ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

However, the ways described in this article and the other ones in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing are generally not geared for the basic but special self. That is because most are drawn in by the excitement they imagine to get from being special, rather than the pure happiness, they automatically receive when being basic, because the latter will not make them essential in a world where being special, bitchy and having something extraordinary is the standard. Read more these two kinds of self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

If not focused but defocused, all the elements used to construct what you believe to be blur out. Hence they do not seem to be something, and you, therefore, not different from the nothingness where the empty breath resides. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

So although being special brings about stress and being basic results in relaxation, almost everybody does their best to establish themselves as somebody special in a mundane or so-called spiritual way. Thus hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing is mostly about using stress and speedy thoughts as a take-off to the empty breath. In regards to the basic self, it is not the stress of being somebody but the relaxation of being nobody, that ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

Let us imagine, you have covered your eyes by your hand, so you can indulge in daydreaming without being disturbed by the world outside of you. Though it feels great to have a fantasy of a better world, it also feels strange to be cut off from the actual world.

So when you want to see the world as it is and not as you imagine it could be, and you sense it is your own hand that stops you from doing so, you automatically remove it. Hence it is the built-up frustration and the realisation it is caused by your own hand, that makes you take it away so you can see the world as it is.

Having had enough of something ignites a take-off to the empty breath and the bliss of nothing
The process in the above box, generally speaking, resembles the way a take-off to the empty breath is ignited. The perception of the experiences you seem to have is believed to establish you as special and therefore to hide that it is a fantasy made from nothing.

This perception, which is to be compared to the hand in the above box, is made from selected thoughts organised into a spiritual or mundane vocabulary (read more about that here), that you share with like-minded ones to confirm each other as being special and not just a fantasy of the brain. Read more about this here.

You may not only sense the bare feet that have made the footprints in this photo but also the body they belong to. Yet there is no feet or entity in the image, and nobody makes footprints like those. Hence what you sense is a construction of thoughts. Read more about that here. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you have had enough of the confusion that comes from this perception, you loosen the grip on the selected thoughts, making it up. Thus you start to see that being special is a daydream. When you are fed up by that, your frustration ignites a take-off to the empty breath. In the connectedness with its nothingness, there is not somebody to perceive that what you experience makes you special or anything at all. This does not mean that you disappear but that you are not attributed with a specific meaning.

The empty breath cannot be experienced as something definitive because it resides in the nothingness unprocessed by the brain. Hence you do not  notice it when you want to experience something.

Since this is a state of not-knowing, there is no awareness of the bliss that nothing entails when not disguised as something. But memories of it pop up when you return to the conscious experience of being someone, which you must do latest 20 minutes, 45 at most, after entering a state of not-knowing, if you want to be able to go on as someone substantial in a tangible world. Read more about that here.

When returning from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive, the slate has been wiped clean, so even though it feels like you just had a unique experience, you are nothing special. Instead, you are the basic self you always were supposed to be. Being that you are happy.

And this happiness does not come from what you experience to be and have but from being in sync with the brain (see hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one), there is no need to perceive any experiences as something special. Thus they seem so unimportant, that, every now and then, there does not appear to be something to hide the bliss of nothing. In other words, you automatically and very quickly go back and forth between a state of not-knowing and the conscious experience of being someone. See To be nobody and yet somebody.

The connectedness with the empty breath does not come from meditating, chanting or any other technique of self-control, because control enhances the belief in being someone definitive. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Being a basic self is an after-effect of a state of not-knowing that may last from a few seconds to many years. Often though it is quickly overridden by the desire to be and have something special. No worries. The confusing energy that this entails is so powerful that it ignites a take-off to the empty breath, provided you are willing to not fix your frustration yourself by denying or indulging in sex or anything else.

In other words, when you are totally fed up with being controlled by the thoughts and feelings, you have sought out yourself to form a belief system of how to be special, you automatically leave it. Not in the sense that you give up, let be or surrender because that is based on being special. But in the sense that the unedited frustration ignites a take-off to the empty breath and in its nothingness there is not something to define you as special anymore.

Are you confused about how to connect with the empty breath? If so, do not try to clear up the turmoil but go with the flow of it so its unedited energy can ignite a take-off to the empty breath. Check out The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness if you want to read more about that. Read What and where are the inner and outer senses in the case this is what you want to dig into.

Be aware, though, that you will never know how to connect with the empty breath. It is not something but nothing, and you cannot know how to connect with nothing. But if you forget what and where you appear to be, you do not need to connect because then there does not appear to be something hiding that you are nothing.

BM2 To set the body free is to set you free [draft]

By concentrating a lot, you may be able to find, something that appears to be a person in this image, and so you may extend this appearance by imagining what that person is like. But if you do not focus, you will not see anything definable there, and so you are well on your way back to that which is you because there is nobody in the image – and you are not definite. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Imagine that while sitting in a bathtub, you get glimpses of something that looks like a world in the steam coming up from it. Or imagine you look at a drawing or painting of some persons and start to sense their emotions. What you experience to see and feel is make-believe because there is actually nobody in a painting, nor in the world, you grasp in the steam coming from the bathtub. Yet imagination can make it appear as if something is going on in a lifeless painting or a stream of heat.

Though projections are not real, they appear to be if you hide their apparent effect is self-made.

Depending on the thoughts project onto the persons in a painting, they could be experienced to feel good or bad, and experience this to come back to you from them and not yourself. Hence it feels like the persons in the painting are alive.

By adding more thoughts to your love story – for example, that the persons are coming from the heart – more good vibes seem to come from outside of you, and so you seem to have a loving connection with someone that is not you. But it is a fantasy. There is nobody but you. And that is also a fantasy because, without anybody to define you, there is nothing.

This is to illustrate, that what and where you experience to be is made from fragments of things you imagine to be outside of oneness. It does not explain everything, though. Who is it, that see something, and is it possible to see anything when there is no more than that which is one?

You cannot explain the world in this image, because the elements of it are mixed in a way that is not possible except in fantasy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No, it is not possible, and for the same reason, it is not possible to be someone. In other words, nobody is having the experience of a world outside of themselves, neither of something inside of themselves. Yet that which is not possible in reality may be possible in a fairy tale. However, it is not possible to logically explain how something is possible in the world of a fairy tale because there is no logical way to describe something that is not real. If there were, it would be genuine. That is why so many like to ask, Who am I?

To exist is an illusion because it requires more than one to exist, to be or to have a consciousness and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Even though nobody has ever found an answer to that, they reckon the question implies, that there is one and that it will prove they exist.

It is just as crazy as to ask, who is the writer of this article and then start looking for the writer in the article. The re is nobody in it, neither in the world where you appear to be. Nor can that which is real be explained, as it takes more than one to do so.

So there we are – or at least we appear to be in a fairy tale of a world where there seems to be more than one. What to do about it? Doing nothing is the way out because doing something is what makes you appear to be there.

This does not mean that you should not deal with the problems that seem to arise from appearing to be there but that since the brain is the writer of it, you accept the brain as your director. Doing that the body is free to take care of itself as it is made to do. But you help it, of course, when the brain instructs you to brush its teeth, for example.

You do not, however, try to set the body in balance. The biological system automatically keeps the body in balance when you do not interfere. Nor do you try to connect the body with spiritual powers. The body only wants to be connected with the thing that makes you experience it to be physical, namely the brain. Everything else confuses it. Also your attempts to make it more perfect or pure through fitness and yoga.

A woman wants to look perfect, and a man wants to be seen with a perfect woman. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The attempts to project your ideas of perfection onto the body come from your misperception of the experiences produced by the brain that otherwise would have helped you to keep the body healthy.

These misperceptions may cause you to think you must get rid of orange peel, obtain six-packs and other things that go against the natural order of the body. You can, therefore, make it easier for the body – and thus you as you believe in residing there – by not projecting thoughts onto the body but keep them in the mental sphere where they belong. Doing that you keep the physical and psychological reality separated so they each can function on their own terms. As the biological system, therefore, is free from your tyranny, it can do what it is made to, namely to take care of bodily and not mental stuff.

This acknowledgement of the physical and mental reality as separate systems is also very helpful in regards to departing the tale of being someone substantial in a tangible world since that is the end of anything tangible. In other words, by keeping the physical and mental reality separated, your time in the tale of a tangible world feels better, and you can leave it without clinging onto the body.

In a world defined by time and space, everything travels in time. It takes, for example, eight minutes for the light of the sun to reach the Earth. Likewise, when the body has been set free, it takes time to register it.

Nothing seems like a lot, when there is no need to be and have anything, as before there appeared to be something, there was nothing.

Thus the reflex to stop the natural flow so you can be in control may still prevail. But if you acknowledge you are mistaken doing that, you set the biological system free to decide for you, and it always chooses what is best for everybody, because that is what you are since the experience of others is a fiction made in your brain.

If pain in the mind is not denied the words that seems to cause the pain cannot hurt, but words projected onto the body – your own or somebody else´s – seems to be able to hurt and confirm the believe, that you are a person to be defined by time and space.

Feelings or thoughts that you do not like, you hide from your awareness by dumping them in the body. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
It is in the mental and/or emotional sphere that you perceive yourself to be someone definitive in a body defined by time and space. But as that which is you is formless, and therefore without beginning and end, it is painful to be reduced to someone with a beginning and an end in a world by time and space.

Yet it is the pain, that makes you appear to be someone in a material world. When you pinch yourself to discover whether you are dreaming or not, it is the experience of pain that makes you feel alive as someone definitive in a world by time and space.

Since feeling alive, therefore, is bracket together with being in pain, you need to suffer. And since your sole existence as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is based on the denial of the formlessness of oneness, denial is also what you resort to in making the pain bearable. You simply turn down the worst part of it, namely the psychological pain, by hiding it in the body, which as a side effect appears to be more real when the suppressed pain sooner or later causes physical discomfort.

Having established yourself and like-minded as good and others as bad, you live in constant fear of attack from those you judged to be evil. Hence you turn the body into a weapon of defence or attack by either keeping your shoulders deadlocked in a backwards or forward position (respectively the attack and the defence attitude). Since the muscles, therefore, become inflexible and eventually start to ache, you have actually used the body to attack yourself.

A way to to keep unwanted feelings hidden inside the body is to hold the mouth closed, so no evil feelings slip out. But you cannot selectively exclude one kind of feeling. The exclusion of one feeling rubs off on the others, so the more a feeling is denied from your awareness by hiding it in the body, the number it becomes and the less alive you feel. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

At that point, you have forgotten that the pain in the body has been caused by yourself, and you blame something in the world for your discomfort. Your body, therefore, becomes a weapon of defence or attack against the world. To effectuate this, you keep the shoulders pushed forward into a position of defence or pushed back into a place of constant readiness to attack.

The tightened body makes you feel safer and thus to be in control. Especially if you also push one or both shoulders upwards to further tighten the area and thus prevent the feelings of the body from passing the blockage, so the brain, cannot process them but you mentally can explain and thus escape the feeling of them.

This rational explanation of your feelings seems less frightening than to actually feel them. Most either suppress the incoming flow of feelings to the brain or the outcoming flow of the processed feelings from the brain. In general, woman does not prevent the incoming flow of feelings from being processed by the brain, but instead they prevent the processed feeling from being expressed by making up a mental story where they have the power to choose to what, when and how much they want to express, and thereby being able to manipulate somebody into serving them.

Men, generally, do the same as a woman and for the same purpose, but in the case of men, it is instead the incoming flow of feelings they prevent from being processed by the brain. But whether it is the incoming or outcoming flow of feelings that are held back, the resulting blockage in the shoulders or neck shortens and/or extends the muscles, so the natural balance in the body is destroyed.

There are many ideas of how to restore the balance of the body, but as the cause of the imbalance is not there but in the mental sphere, all they accomplish is that the symptoms in the body are moved or momentarily relieved. To solve the problem, it must be faced where it is made, namely in the mental and/or emotional sphere where there is a sense of not being good enough as you are.

Not feeling loved as you are is a misunderstanding based on the perception that you are something else than the brain has created you to be.

The only thing that will heal the pain in the mental sphere is the undoing of the sick belief that you are someone definitive. This healing, however, most want to avoid, as it results in being nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

And as there also is a nagging feeling of being nothing, you wonder how you can ever be loved? Because you are nothing. Only that which is not real can be loved because it takes more than one to love or be loved, and reality is that which is one. So just like you love to hear music coming out of the speakers, although it is not real, the brain loves you as if you are something, although it has made from out of nothing. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

Perceiving to be rejected or misunderstood is often a way to justify being depressed or angry and thus to suppress that it is your choice to be so. This is not to say that you should stop that or anything else but that if everything is perceived as it is what it is*, you have nothing to be depressed or angry about.

You will not feel loved, though, if you keep on filtering the feelings you receive and/or release to make it look like you get what you expect, for example disappointment for being let you down. If not filtering what you get and/or give and perceiving that as it is what it is*, to be abandoned feels just as entertaining as to be supported. Since no feeling, therefore, needs to be escaped, you do not feel stressed but relaxed, regardless of what you get and/or give.

This does not mean that common sense should be set apart. You may find its best not to express your deepest feelings to your boss. But just like you keep wearing a big sweater in the wintertime even though you feel like wearing something lighter, there is no need to suppress the light feeling.

Nor should common sense be set aside in regards to the damage that has been caused in the body by the suppressed feelings. Apart from feeling them, you most likely need to stretch the shortened muscles in the body, energising them by doing Nordic Walking, or softening with far-infrared heating pads, for example from UTK. The latter also makes it easier to be with feelings as they are. To make sure there are no serious problems with internal organs, you may have to consult a qualified physician. Read more about taking care of the body here.

It is not likely that the physical symptoms caused by suppressed thoughts and feelings will ever be entirely fixed, but since these thoughts and feelings can be brought to light, their leftover physical effect is perceived like the basic self would do, namely that it is what it is.*

Should you, by the way, have distanced yourself so much from the thoughts and feelings you cut off from the awareness in the past and, therefore, cannot bring them back to the mental and/or emotional sphere where they are made, you can, instead, bring them back in one trunk by feeling the discomfort of the strained parts in the body that the suppression of them have caused.

Doing that without justifying the displeasure in the mental and/or emotional sphere with something, nor yourself, it will eventually be replaced by pleasure. Until then, however, you will probably feel that this is the end of you. No worries. The only thing that ends is the special image of yourself that you have worked so hard to keep together.

Facing the sum of mental and/or emotional discomfort in the above way is, of course, much quicker than facing one thought or feeling after the other. Even faster, though, is the enlightenment of that which is one because it erases all experiences, also that of being someone. See hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

The other duality hacks do the same but over time. Thus you can enjoy the belief in being someone definitive while slowly but surely having it undone. Hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing gives you a taste of how it is to be indifferent to this belief by bringing you into a state of not-knowing and shortly afterwards return you to the consciousness of being someone definitive but with the memory of that being nothing, so you experience to be in the world but not of it.

This is until that memory takes over completely, so you no more seem to be somebody who can hide there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness. See hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

PMT [+] Inclusion is liberation from separation (in the process of being updated)

Accept darkness instead of fighting it, and it will enhance the light of the moment.

The sum of any contrast is a perfect moment, so instead of denying or fighting darkness go for it, as this will bring out its contrast, light, as well. Not in the way, though, that they will merge into dawn, but that they will cancel out each other so that there is nothing to experience. That is a perfect moment. The photo, by the way, is from such a perfect moment in my garden. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The two cats – Wincent and Guinevere – that Alexius is sharing a home with have a big territorial instinct, so when a new cat curiously showed up in their home, they got very upset – especially Guinevere. She freaked out and furiously ran away. When she later returned, she did not notice that the stranger was still were chilling out on the sofa, so she laid down on the floor without a worry – until she suddenly looked up and saw him. Then hell was loose.

By thinking the world is the cause of your state of mind, it is justified by the world and thus excluded from what it believed to be you. In this way separation is made real, because projecting the cause of your state of mind onto powers, that appears to be outside of you, there seems to be more than one.

Once again, she furiously left us, and even though the visitor had left when she returned, she was still very upset. To prove that her feelings of unjust were justified, she searched for spots of leftover scent from the visitor. Every time she found one, she freaked out so Wincent and Alexius could see how much the stranger had hurt her feelings.

Ultimately speaking it is not possible to be troubled by something, as there is no more than that which is one and it requires more than one to be troubled by something. But if you believe to be someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one, there will always be somebody or something that seems to cause trouble.

In other words, you will not be trouble-free before the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is undone.

The anger, Guinevere was holding onto, was supposed to exclude the unfamiliar cat from her world and to make him suffer for what she imagined he had done to her. But as the new cat mostly had spent his time in her world by sleeping on the sofa, he had no idea, that she was angry and he was supposed to suffer from it. Actually, he happily returned the next day to take another nap on the sofa. Nonetheless, there was another one who felt punished by her anger, namely herself. It was eating her up from inside.

This is not a story about anger but the purpose of holding onto it
The above cat story is not meant to be a story about anger, but the purpose of justifying feelings, which is to manifest the belief that there is more than that which is one.

A feeling in itself cannot confirm this belief. But when it is justified by something judged to be outside of you, you become a victim of forces in a world where there seems to be more than one. Thus the justification of a feeling confirms the belief that you are someone in such a world. At least that is what you want to believe, even though the prize of this belief is to be in pain.

As it takes more than one to feel something, and as there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, any kind of feeling always ends up being experienced as painful. In this way you are reminded, it is not possible to be or have more than that which is one.

In the case of Guinevere, her anger justified by the stranger makes her seem superior to him, though she actually has turned herself into a victim of him. This makes them both appear to be somebody special, and as Guinevere want to be especially good compared to the stranger that she judges to be evil, more anger is justified with him with. And since the result is the same as before, there is more anger that needs to be justified with the evil one – and so it goes on and on.

Feeling angry or happy results in the same, if those feelings are justified by something, namely the enhancement of being separated from a world that appears to be outside of you.

A victim of justification
Even though what we did judge to be a problem is out-of-the-way, we often choose to hold onto it in order to justify any anger popping up. Besides we also want to punish those we blame for it – perhaps our parents – by putting up a sad face so that they will feel guilty about how much they have hurt us.

Feeling angry is an imagination, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to feel something.

If it is only when anger is attributed with a cause, that it appears as if somebody or something has upset you. But if it is not attributed with a cause, nothing has upset you. The way to attribute anger with a cause is to justify it, so if you do not do that, the story is over, and anger does not seem dangerous, because it is not triggering a story of pain.

In the context of the story of Guinevere this means, that if she does not exclude anger from herself by justifying it as if it is caused by the visiting cat but include it as hers, she has no need to get upset about a visitor in her home and make up a story that implies he must be punished for disturbing her peace of mind. Neither does she need to make up a story about forgiveness because there is nothing to forgive.

In the context of the story of Guinevere this means, that if she does not exclude her present anger from herself by justifying it as caused by the last visit of a foreign cat but include it as hers, she has no need to find things that reminds her of the stranger in her home and make up a story that implies he must be punished for disturbing her peace of mind. Neither does she need to make up a story about forgiveness because there is nothing to forgive.

If a feeling of rejection is not justified by what somebody else appear to have done or not done, the feeling is not excluded but included and as that means it does not represent separation, there is no rejection.

Guinevere likes to sit on the balcony. It is not because of the view, but the canaries that she sees in the avocado trees and dream of catching. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no darkness without light and vice versa
Even though the everyday view from the balcony of Alexius in the above image is very pleasurable to the eye, he sometimes succeeds in finding things there that seems to justify a discomforting feeling. Just like Guinevere, who was looking for hidden things home to evoke the story she made up of her encounter with the visiting cat so that her justification of the anger he seemed to trigger from her past could be excluded from her.

To include a feeling as it is, you just let it be without justifying it. To let it be requires, that you consider yourself to be someone definitive, as otherwise there would not be someone to let it be. But by letting it be you lose control and without it you cannot align your appearance into someone definitive. Hence you are nobody.

In this way somebody, who appears to make you angry, becomes somebody who helps you becoming nobody – and it takes nobody to have a perfect moment, since it is a state of not-knowing.

Guinevere joined Alexius and Wincent on Christmas Eve when she was 5 months old. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Guinevere, who came to Alexius when she was around five months old, had been left behind twice by other people, so when events in the present trigger her old feelings of insecurity, she freaks out. Alexius grew up in a home, that felt like a war zone to him, so he tends to justify his anger as a necessity to protect him from a devastating power interpreted to come from outside of him. 

Such anger from the past does not have to be an ongoing problem though, because when not excluded by blaming somebody else for having caused it, but instead included exactly as it is experienced, it will not only reveal its other side, which is pleasure, but also that the sum of the opposites in a contrast is a perfect moment.

In a perfect moment, anger is not a disturbing feeling, pushed away into the dark. Instead, it is taken into the light, so the hidden memories of the past, that seemed to have caused it, is no more. Not by going back into the past to fix it, neither by denying it, but by including the pain and anger of the past as it is experienced in the present.

Feelings need the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one, because it takes more than one to feel something – and such a world needs feelings in order to be experienced as if it is real and not just make-believe.

Inclusion frees you from your own story of a world made up of past memories, and as it is those memories you use to keep your belief in separation alive, the concepts used to condition you into assuming that you are an autonomous creature quietly falls apart. This does not mean that you will get rid of your conditioning. If you try that, they will just be replaced by others. But it means you will not consider them to be real – just like even though you play along with the rules of a game, you do not consider the rules of it to be real.

To be angry or to be joyful is the same

PART 1:
The reason for abandoning that which is one in favour of a world where there seems to be more than one may differ from person to person. One general reason though is the craving for being and having more than that which is one. And anger that this is not possible, since formlessness is endless and therefore everything, so there is no more than that which is one.

The purpose of believing to be a separated creature in a body is that in the body you can hide what you do judge to be wrong, so an image of you being right can be fabricated.

Yet it is not possible to feel anger in oneness since that requires more than one. So anger is not something you feel but that which is you, and as there is no difference between that and the formlessness of oneness and there is nothing outside it, anger cannot be escaped.

When somebody else or your own body is blamed for the anger, so you seem to be off the hook and on a path of love. See also the article The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

But what if there was something outside of oneness. If so there would be somewhere to escape – and so you imagine a whole world outside of that which is one where there seems to be more than one and keep imagining ´what if´. In this world you can hide the anger in the body, you seem to have, or project it onto other bodies, which is the main purposes of the appearance of them, as they not only seem to hide your anger but also that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one is it possible to experience a contrast like that of joy and anger. This or any other feeling is, however, an illusion, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to feel something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Yet none of the imagined appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one lasts, so sooner or later anger seems to be yours again. And nothing will really help you to get rid of it or any other feeling that you brought into a world where there seems to be more than one. Fortunately, you do not have to get rid of anything, if everything seen is perceived as symbols of that which makes it possible to imagine, there is anything to see at all, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Hence the apparent difference between anger and joy does not appear to make a difference, and when everything is the same there is peace.

That everything is the same in the sense that every appearance symbolises the formlessness of that which is one, does not mean that you should not acknowledge the apparent between for example you and me, but that you do not interpret it to make a difference.

To perceive differences in that way is not ultimate reality though but a simulation of it. No worries. By seeing every appearance as a symbol of that which is one, you are not identified with being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, and so you are bidding welcome the formlessness of that which is one, and as that is no different from that which is you it is only a matter of time the symbols do not appear to hide that which they are symbolising.

How long this will take is not important, because time is a symbol of that which is one and like all other symbols an illusion. So even though you appear to be waiting to return that which is you, it is not so. That is where you are there. It is not possible to be anywhere else.

When nothing is excluded, there is nothing to define you, and thus nothing to hurt you. And as nothing, you are free to fall into the formlessness of that which is one. The animation is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Just like there are no memories of you as someone in a physical world when having dreams while being at sleep in such a world, there are no memories of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one when the body you identified as yours is dying.*

Yet all the thoughts and feelings, that you excluded in order for them to define you as what you were not in a world where there seems to be more than one, chaotically and speedily are rushing by. If you for example excluded negativity in order to be defined as not negative but positive in a world where there seems to be more than one, negativity will rush by mixed up with everything else excluded.

But as there is no experience of a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot escape this in the way you used to, namely by projecting unwanted thoughts and feelings on somebody else. Neither would that be meaningful in regards to making up an identity of you as someone special, because there is not somebody else, who can define you in relation to them.

You are on your own, always was and always will be, because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Also when you experienced to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. That was a make-believe world maintained by the brain. In the moments of death, however, it does not have the power to maintain this illusion.

If you do not believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot suffer from pain, because it takes more than one to have a specific experience.

For the same reason there is nobody to share the pain of loneliness, that all those excluded thoughts and feelings rushing by seem to bring about, with – or in any way get help to surpass this apparent hell.

It feels like there is no solution. But there is, because if all thoughts and feelings are included, there is no need for a world where there seems to be more than one, so instead of feeling as if you are about to explode, you are at peace, slowly falling into the formlessness of that which is one, where there is no loneliness, as it takes more than one to be alone.

APPENDIX:
Since it takes more than one to be conscious of something, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one this is possible, so do if you do not want the belief in such a world to hide that there is no more than that which is one, do not hang onto consciousness, when you at the moment of death seem to lose it.

And as the consciousness of such wold is limiting, it hides the formlessness of oneness, which is everything there is, since formlessness is endless. So when you on the moment of death seem to lose consciousness of such a world or anything else, do not hang onto it, because it takes more than one to be conscious, so without it, there is nothing to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

Not hanging onto the conscious of being someone at all, feels like the end of you, but it is not the end of anything else than the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Fear is just a four letter word

Feelings confirm you as a living being within a capsule of time and space. It is fearful though to be stuck in a capsule, and if you also fear leaving it, you will look for lasting happiness there, but never find it, as time and space is an illusion built on the idea, there must be more than that which is formless and non-tangible.

Sometimes the weather is rainy and at other times sunny. Though thoughts of rain may seem heavier than those of sunshine all kinds of thoughts are fleeting, so the apparent heaviness of specific thoughts will not remain. That is if you have no need to feel the world.

If you want to experience yourself as a real person in a real world, you need to feel it, so in this context heavy thoughts are preferable – especially if they are justified by something.

By concluding that the thoughts, you seemed to have while it was raining, was caused by the rain, you project them onto something perceived as a substance, and that rubs off on the thoughts regarding the rain. They seem to become a substance you can feel – and feeling the rain, you know the world has done something to you. Hence the conclusion seems to be that you and the world must be real.

Although the feeling that is produced when the body is touched, is nothing but a construction of thoughts compiled in the brain, you believe this proves the body to be real and hence that you exist as someone definitive.

Whatever thoughts are passing by regarding the rain, if you use them to justify something in relation to the rain, they will turn into feelings, and they will be painful in one way or the other.

Thoughts that are passing by regarding the rain turn into something you interpret as feelings if you, for example, fall on a slippery road or simply just imagine it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To make the feeling of being someone who is getting wet from rain even more substantial, you may search your memory for a similar event. Let us say, you remember how you stumbled and broke your leg one rainy day in the past. The thoughts of anger that passed by that day, you did not like, so you excluded them from what you experienced to be you by justifying the authorities who had not put up a warning sign about the slippery road. Read more about excluding thoughts and feelings by defending them with the world in hack #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive.

The conversion of thoughts into feelings
Remembering the essence of this past event, namely that you are a victim of sources outside of yourself, will help you to justify your thoughts in the present with something outside of you that seems to be substantial, so that thoughts about it turn into a more tangible form. And as the past feeling of anger was justified by the authorities, whom you blamed for having caused your broken leg, the present emotion is not felt but rather conceptualised by judging it to be something unpleasant caused by somebody else.

Being a victim of bad things outside of yourself you can define yourself as good and others as bad. Some do it the other way around, but that does not matter. What matters is, that you are defined as someone specific because then you are someone definitive in a real world, that can be felt like a substantial body and feeling it seems to confirm, your existence, although it is nothing but a construction of thoughts. This also applies also to feelings of love and whatnot.

To make long short, in the context of the above story of a broken leg you have stored feelings of sadness in your leg, and you have a short fuse regarding authorities, whom you blame for this. So because of how you have chosen to perceive the past, even a light shower or a mild reprimand may trigger the old feelings stored in your legs. It hurts, but it is also comforting, as feelings confirm you are alive.

Feeling the world may sometimes seem so intense and real, that you look for ways to lessen feelings you do not like with alcohol, meditation, prayer, chanting, food, television, shopping and whatnot.

The purpose, however, is still to feel that you exist, and in this you can never succeed, because it takes more than one to exist and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Your identification depends on feelings. Without them you do not seem to exist, so even if you consult a healer, you do not want to be healed, because without feelings you cannot experience yourself to be someone definitive. You only want the feelings of discomfort to hurt less or cause fewer problems. See also the article That which is faster than the speed of light.

More about the substance of feelings in hack #8.3 Feelings are thoughts constructed to appear as if they are tangible.

The deconstruction of thoughts
No healing can help you as long as you want to remain a person in the world – and as long as you seem to be in the world, you want to be a person. That is why you appear to be there. Fortunately, there are ways to hack this where you can have your cake and eat it too.

Some suggest forgiveness as a way to deal with the world. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings have several other hacks to deal with the world and at the same time undo the belief in it, for example pretending to be someone definitive in the world instead of believing to be a person there (hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive) – or to perceive everything as symbols as that which is life (hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life).

Anyway out of an illusion is an illusion so whatever way out of it that seems beneficial to you can be used to undo this illusion. Best to follow a way though, of one who knows, it is an illusion, since you are not going anywhere, as that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to go somewhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thoughts are fleeting, so to think you are someone definitive is not painful, but to project this thought onto a body in order to feel as if you exist is very painful, because feelings have an end, and so you know what you appear is gonna end.

These ways make it more comfortable to appear as if you are someone definitive, while the thought system behind the belief that it is possible to be someone at all is being undone. None of those ways though are the right way, because there is no way. If there were, the world would be real and not an illusion, so while you appear to be in this illusion, it makes no difference what way you choose or if you any.

Although fear is not comfortable, it will always makes you feel as if you are alive. But it is someone who has no life, who needs to feel it. That which is life cannot be felt, because there is nothing else than that, and so there is no way to feel it. No worries. That which is life is content by being everything.

To perceive everything as symbols of that which is life ((hack #2.1-2 To see symbols of life in the world and Everything experienced is a symbol of life) may be the fastest way. But then again time is an illusion.

Nevertheless, this hack includes forgiveness, which is the favourite hack of A Course in Miracles, and all the duality hacks of Alexius, as they of course also symbolise that which is life. That is except the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #5-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can), as that which is one is life.

There is nothing to learn in the world, because just like in a dream you are not there.

This hack is so easy to implement because forgetting to do it is just another symbol of that which is life, so you do not have to be a good student. A lousy student is also a symbol of that which is life. You do not even need a teacher, because there is nothing to learn or accomplish.

You do need to follow something that is not perceived to be of your own and in your own speed because only what is not real has something of its own.

APPENDIX:
Love is not something we are born with. It is a state of mind, that we have learned to fabricate by bringing flowers or whatever we imagine is perceived as love. But fear is what we are born with because it is frightening to appear as if you are someone definitive in a capsule of time and space.

The idea of love, however, is an enhancement of fear, because, for love to appear, there needs to be more than one, and when there is more than one there is separation, which is scaring. The same applies to be spiritual – or being something at all.

A world where there seems to be more than one is an abstraction of that which is one, and as that which is you is not an abstraction but that which is one, you are not in such a world.

That which is one is not in a world where there seems to be more than one
There is no spiritual journey in a world where there seems to be more than one, even though such a world can only be experienced because of spirituality – just like that even though your electronic media is what makes it possible to read this, it is not in what you read. Actually, it appears to be hidden by this article like that which is one appears to be hidden by your experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

The experience of such a world is based on the imagination, that it is possible to separate oneness into bits and pieces defined by time and space. What needs to be imagined though is not real, so the imagination of a world encapsulated by time and space is dismissed the moment it is conceived.

In other words: There is no solution to fear because there is no definable world and never was. The moment you accept that, you do not know of fear as something you feel. This applies to love or any other feeling as well. This is not something you choose to accept, because choosing is based on the idea that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Neither is it something you let happen, as that is based on the belief in being someone definitive.

When you just do not give a shit and could not care less about what and where you appear to be there, the world does not seem to have a hold on you anymore. Well as it does not exist, it never had. It is you who hold onto your idea of a world encapsulated by time and space. Just like it is you, who identify yourself with the world of a movie. But the world in the movie does not exist, and what does not exist cannot empower you – unless you take part in it, as if it is real.

(+) You exist nowhere else but in your own dreamscape

You are a person in a dreamscape.

What you appear to be is not real but like a person in a dreamscape. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world we see on the screen in a cinema is made from frequencies of light that are projected from somewhere else onto a flat screen. We do not actually see the frequencies, neither do we experience the world on the screen to be flat, because our experience is a fabrication made by the brain based on how it is conditioned to translate the frequencies hitting our eyes.*

Hence the world on the screen, where we experience people to be separated from each other in a world defined by time and space is a deception fabricated by the brain. Frequencies of light are all there is on the screen, so the world we seem to see and feel there is made up in ourselves. And so is what we believe to be ourselves.

The brain uses five per cent of its capacity to build a self, that uses a selected part of the info hitting the senses in combinations with singled out memories, feelings and imaginations to create an exciting story about itself as someone special in a world defined by time and space.*

Nowadays, as most movies are digitized and often seen on a computer, it may be more correct to say, that the world we seem to see on the screen is fabricated from the digital info reaching your eyes. As this consists of nothing but zeros and ones in different combinations, this info makes no sense to us before the brain has translated it in accordance with its conditioning.

The brain functions like an app creating and rendering a realistic looking world in 3D based on your belief in being someone definitive there.

Though the conditioning of the brain may seem to differ from person to person, they have all agreed to the same basis conditioning, namely that each one of them is someone special separated from what appears to be outside of them in a world defined by time and space.*

Even though this rendering of a sunset does not look like a ´real´ sunset, memories of a sunset, that you have conditioned yourself to interpret as real, will probably pop up and take over, so the translation of the frequencies hitting your eyes are adjusted to what you believe to be real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you experience to see and/or feel the body it is the same story, as when you experience a dimensional world in a movie at a flat screen. Not even is the body not substantial. It is not there at all.

There is nothing but frequencies of light – or pure info if you prefer the digital version in the above explanation – and they are only experienced as something substantial, because the brain has made a translation of them it in accordance with how it has been conditioned to simulate you as someone substantial in a tangible world.*

No matter how realistic the brain renders the sight of a world defined by time and space, there is nothing real in it.

Same story about the self that appears to be ruling the body from inside of it. Whether the self is believed to be mundane or spiritual the existence of it is a story made up in the brain. But as that which is you is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to fabricate something, this self has nothing to do with that which is you.

In a dream everything is make-believe, because it made from nothing, and so is you and the world where you believe to be because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

In the context of believing to be someone in a world defined by time and space, this can be compared to having a dream. Nothing in the world of the dream is real and even though the dreamer may experience to be there, it is make-believe, because the dreamer is substantial and the dream is insubstantial. Yet the dreamer can pretend to be there.

In other words, that which is you is not in a world defined by time and space but pretending to be someone there.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings functions only within in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, they must be forgotten in order to undo the belief in such a world, so that there does not appear to be something hiding, there never was and never will be more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Ultimately speaking the frequencies, that the brain base its story of a world defined by time and space upon, are also imagined, because nothing definable is real, since reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to define something.

In other words, as it requires more than one to find the basis for a world defined by time and space, it cannot be found. This could be the reason why science concludes, that the experience of world made by elements of matter is an illusion, because it consists of nothing but empty space. Hence any experience and the one believing to experiencing it is make-believe.

As Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are part of the experience created from of empty space, they are of course as illusionary as anything else experienced. So please do not consider them to be definitive manifestation of truth but metaphors exposing the belief in that which is not real, so that it can be undone.

As this article is part of that dreamscape and as you seem to read it – although what you believe to read is a version translated by your brain and therefore by you, since the brain is the total of your memories – you either believe or pretend to be in your personal version of that dreamscape.

Depression and anger hid in the dark. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No persons though are totally satisfied with the way their personal dreamscape is rendered. Deep down they hate the person, they seem to be in it. But as so-called negative feelings seem to distort the perfection of their rendered personality, they try to fence them off with ideas of a better world, truth, eternity, coming from the heart and whatnot.

Unfortunately, these ideas do not change the fact, that the world just like you as a person is founded on the belief that it is possible to be separated from the formlessness of oneness.

Actually, those promoting such apparently beautiful visions enhance this belief, because to appear as a good person they have separated themselves from they judge to be bad by projecting it on those they claim are in need their help. See also the article Coming from the heart is a denial of that which is one.

Being a person separated from others by time and space though is not a problem if it is something you pretend to be, because what you pretend to be, you are not. In other words, nothing needs to be changed or stopped, when you do not believe to be a person in a world defined by time and space but pretend being there.

Playing a game is more fun when following its rules instead of spending time trying to change them into what you consider to be more fair according to your ideas of a better world.

In a warm climate, you get the most out of it by having fun adjusting to that climate. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Within the context of such a world, you do not spend time trying to make a game like for example Monopoly better or to find out who you really are but simply follow the rules of the game as they are, because that is what makes it fun pretending to be in a world where you are not.

The same applies to pretend to be someone definitive in a dreamscape appearing as a world defined by time and space. Even though it consists of nothing and thus is an illusion, you just have fun by playing the game of being someone definitive there.

To sum it up, the more you are pretending this, the more it is just as fun being a winner as a loser, as pretending to be something undoes the belief that it is possible to be anything at all, since that requires more than one and that which is you is no different from that which is one.

Alexius has fun pretending to salute a friend with a glass of Limoncello. At other times he may have fun pretending to be an asshole bitching about his friends. That he has friends or anything else is of course also something he pretends. Thus nothing separates him from the empty space, where he pretends to be someone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX:
The more the belief in being someone definitive is undone the less there is an ´I´ that seem to receive impulses for doing this and that. There does not appear to be much except for the emptiness the fantasy of being someone definitive is made from.

There are so many personalities you can pretend to be. In the The Enlightened Non-Teacher, Personal Intro you can see some of those Alexius has pretended to be. Nowadays he mostly pretends to be a non-teacher but also a non student. In other words, he has nothing to teach or learn.

If this seems too depressing, you can use the emptiness as a zero fill and imagine someone in it that you pretend to be, which contrary to believing to be someone is so much fun. In other words, besides from having fun from out of nothing, you are also in the most joyful way having the belief that you are someone at all undone, since what and where you pretend to be, you are not.

Except for the enlightenment of that which is one this applies to all the other duality hacks as well. In other words, whenever the emptiness that they expose seems unbearable, you can use the emptiness as a zero fill and imagine someone in it that you pretend to be, so that you have fun from the experience of being someone definitive, while the belief that this is possible slowly but surely are being undone.

You can always use hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive in combination with the other duality hacks to tone down the hopelessness and desperation that may set in when they expose what you appear to be is fictional and not factual.

Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

So momentarily having the slate wiped clean by a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one*,* for example, you are free to make a new fiction in which you pretend to be whatever is possible within your apparent physical limitations, and as what you pretend to be you are not, the belief that you are someone definitive is being undone, while you are having fun pretending to be that.

Other duality hacks where you have fun in undoing the belief that you are someone definitive
Another duality hack that is perfect in regards to having fun appearing to be someone definitive while having the belief that this is possible undone is to perceive everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one (see hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life).

You could also adjust to the empty breath, as it automatically syncs the world of the inner and outer senses (see hack #4,5, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone), so that the abstractness of the inner ones becomes the basis for perceiving the world of the outer senses, wherefore the apparent differences of its physical elements does not appear to make a difference and therefore do not enhance the belief in you being someone definitive.

You can see all the duality hacks in the table of contents.

The world is in the eye of the beholder

The sun can only ´make´ the flowers blossom, because they are built to do so. They have no choice. But you have a choice, and it is in your own best interest to choose, what makes you feel good.

The sun can only ´make´ the flowers blossom because they are built to do so. They have no choice. The same applies to you, except that you have a choice in regards to how you want to perceive the flowers or anything else in the world. And it is in your own best interest to choose a perception of the world, that makes you feel good. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When people talk about psychological problems, they often say things like: »You´re upset because you did not speak your mind when somebody said or did something that offended you«. This or similarly sentences are popular ways of justifying feelings so that they appear to be caused by something outside the sufferer.

If one plus one is not two, then the whole maths system falls apart. In other words: If the foundation is wrong, what is build upon it is also wrong. This is to say, that the above assertion of what is causing psychological problems is totally wrong and therefore also any solutions built upon that assertion.

It is not what others do, but your perception of it that upsets you
You never get upset, because of what somebody else says or do – or not say or do. You get upset because of the way you choose to perceive, what somebody else says or do – or not say or do. But only if you already have the specific feeling you blame somebody else for causing in you because you cannot receive something, that you do not already have. Just like the sun can only colour your skin in proportion to how much the pigments in it allows you to be touched by it.

It is of course to a certain extent your choice, if you want to have the pigments in your skin touched by the sun or not. Yet how to perceive the colour triggered by the sun is solely a choice of yours.

How do you see this dog? You see what you give and you choose, what to give. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you love yourself, you will most likely perceive the new skin colour as lovely. But if you feel uncertain about yourself, you may perceive faults and missing parts in it, as if something is wrong and needs to be fixed. This perception, however, reveals nothing about the sun but everything about what you suppress in yourself.

The more for example hate is suppressed in yourself, the more the new skin colour seems to upset you. And the less you want to face it is your own feeling, the more you will blame the sun for it, regardless it already was present – although suppressed –and has nothing to with the sun but your own self-hatred.

If you want another person to respond in the way that you define as lovingly, you reject what that person really is – basically because you have rejected yourself. And so when you do not get the expected respond, your own feeling of rejection is exposed. Yet you blame somebody else for that instead of acknowledging that the world is in the eye of the beholder.

If you do not love yourself, you cannot give love, because what you do not have you cannot give, neither receive. In other words, what you give is what you receive, so if you see unfriendliness, that is what you give, and therefore what you have and are. To use a very common phrase, the world is in the eye of the beholder.

Love and hate are two sides of the same coin
As love cannot be forced, you cannot choose to love what you appear to be. But you can choose to accept, that you hate it and actively have suppressed that. Doing so you will see love is set free because hate and love are two sides of the same coin and that the only reason you have not seen the love you have is that you cannot suppress one without the other.

Therefore, when others seem to upset you, be thankful, they may have helped to expose your hatred, and if accepted as yours, you will see you also have its contrast, namely love. In other words, they love you!

Appearing to be someone living in a capsule of time and space, you do not have the power to change the events that seem to happen inside it. But you have the power to choose how to perceive them, so if you choose a light and happy perception or not is up to you.

Not believing to be someone in the world, you instead pretend to be there. What and where you pretend to be has no power of its own but is powered by that which makes it possible to pretend something that is not real.

What and where you pretend to be, you are not!

Choosing a light perception you do not feel the limitations of the capsule to be real, and so it easier pretending to be there instead of believing to be there. Yet we cannot appear to be in a world defined by time and space without pretending to have a body and a personality to govern it.

My hands, my legs, my eyes and so on are tools, that my personality uses to navigate in the world. But it does not identify with these tools and does not care much if some of them have to be replaced along the way.

When you do not believe to be someone specific, the personality can easily change and for example appear to be humble, if that is the way to obtain a loan in a bank, or to be angry if that seems to work better. It is just different attitudes, and not that which is you. The personality is a tool, that can be used in many ways. Unfortunately, it is mostly used to make you appear as if you are someone very special and real.

If this is what you want, you will hold onto the specific thoughts, feelings and behaviours, that you think will make you more important or loved and hide those that seem to belittle you, so the resulting image of you appears to be someone insignificant. This can be compared to playing a video game and only tell your friends of the heroic things you accomplished in it.

But if you do not care about being great or someone at all, the personality is not seen as a tool for promoting a specific image of you as if it is real but for pretending to be in a world encapsulated by time and space, though that which is you is not there, because it is not different from the formlessness of that which is one.

That which is one has no room for someone at all, as it requires more than one to be someone. It is, therefore, only in a world where there seems to be more than one there appears to be someone. But since oneness is formless and therefore endless, a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe, and so is experiencing to be in such world. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

The famous sentence to be or not to seem to imply, that it is better to be than not to be. And this is indeed so if you want to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one, as you cannot be without another being witnessing your being, whereas not to need no witness and therefore no more than one. As Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are about that which is one they are about not to be.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one without relating to it, and doing so you appear to be part of it, unless you relate to it as a symbol of that which is one, or as if relating to it is something you pretend to do, or that you do not perceive relating to its apparent differences make a difference. In those cases you appear to be in the world, but not as part of it.

You need not to be saved from a world where there seems to be more than one, because you are not there. It is not possible, but it is possible to believe so, so undoing that belief is all you need. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You need not be saved from a world where there seems to be more than one, because you are not there. It is not possible, but it is possible to believe so. But as it takes more than one to be free from something and there is no more than that which is one, undoing this belief will not set you free, but that nothing seems to hide, there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Your money will not save you, neither will sex, love or romance. And your parents, precious children and flat-screen TV cannot help you. Nothing can help you. Fortunately, help is not needed – just like you do not need help if you must go to jail in a game like Monopoly, because you are not there. It is not possible, neither is it possible to be in a world where there seems to be more than one because that which is you is no different from that which is one.

In other words, you are just pretending to be in such a world. In case you have forgotten that and believe to be there, all that is needed is to undo this belief.

Maybe you give out hate to help yourself see, it is the denial of your own self-hatred, that keeps love at a distance. The image is grabbed from the web.

Maybe you give out hate to help yourself seeing, it is the denial of your own self-hatred, that keeps love at a distance. The image of Mickey is grabbed from the web.

The way that you perceive, what seems to come to you from others is not caused by them but you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Giving and receiving happens simultaneously.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Far from all persons will respond to you in the way, that you expect. Yet the response, that you perceive to receive correlates to what you gave out. So if you do not like what you perceive to receive, you must either change what you give out or the perception of what you receive. The latter is the easiest, and as giving and receiving is the same, by changing the perception of what you receive you also change your perception of what you gave. You can of course only give what you have and as that is what you believe to be, by changing the perception of what you receive, you change what you believe to be.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What you give out comes back to you – not in another lifetime but in the very same moment. This is not to be understood in a physical way, as if you give money you will get money. It is the intention behind giving money, that returns to you immediately. The sense of giving and receiving is happening in the mind, so if you want to experience being loved, love must be the content of what you give. In other words, if you give what you want, your perception of what you receive will be, that you get what you want.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Love and hate are two sides of the same coin.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Whether you are aware of it or not, you always give what you want, so if you perceive to receive hatred, that is what you want. Maybe because you want to see the hate, you have hidden in yourself, so that you can have and give love, because without hate you cannot see that you have love.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A world of duality can only be experienced due to contrasts, so the higher an experience you want, the lower you have to be willing to go in order to experience it. There is no pure love without dirty dancing, and there is no bliss without depression. Meditation, chanting, aura-transformation, you name it, will not change that.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As the world is experienced through contrasts, you cannot have one without the other. When you accept the hate you seem to have, you have paved the way for also seeing the love that you have. And seeing that you have love, you can give it. Doing so, you perceive that others respond to you with love.

How you perceive this article does not tell anything about it, but about what you believe to be, so if you do not like the way you perceive the article, it is in your own best interest to change your perception.

When you look at the world with love, you are loved, because what you see is what you get.

Those you experience to be in a world where there seems to be more than one are appreciated in accordance with how you have judged them. If they have traits in their personality that you do not like, they appear to upset you, but that is only because of the way you have chosen to perceive these traits.

Though many agree that the world is in the eye of the beholder, they still blame others for their state of mind instead of acknowledging that what you see is what you have, since you cannot see what you do not have. Hence what you receive is what you are.

So when you have love in your eye, you perceive everybody with love, and no matter how they respond, love is what they give you because you receive what you have.

Loving everybody does not mean, that you must love everything they do or say. In the case of Alexius, for example, he dislikes, that the cats living with him bring home half-dead lizards and rats. Yet it does not change his love for them.

You already know what it feels like to only love selected parts of the world. If you compare that to loving it all, you know what is in your own best interest.

To make long short: You choose how to perceive the world, and if you look at it with love, you cannot miss love, because what you have is what you give, and what you give, you receive.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

That the world is in the eye of the beholder does not mean that you are in charge of what happens in the world but of how you perceive it. In other words, if one of your legs is missing no visualisation will materialise it. But depending on your perception, you can be just as happy with one as with two legs.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is your choice, how you want to perceive a message – and the choice reveals how you have chosen to see yourself.

It is your choice, how you want to perceive this image. And this choice reveals more about you than the image. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It may seem as if you are not always in charge. And you are partly right: Things happens that you have not chosen and cannot change, but you – and only you – choose how to perceive those things – and you can always choose to change this perception so that you feel better.

If you cannot find your keys and have forgotten they are in your left pocket, it does not mean, that you did not choose to put them in your left pocket. It only means you have forgotten, you made that choice.

Nobody forced you to read this article. You made that choice. You cannot choose when the article is over though. It is my choice and I choose to finish it now.

This you can choose how to perceive!

If you are watching a movie, and there is something in the movie, that you do not like, there is nothing you can do to change it. The movie is already made from the beginning to the end. Yet you can change the way you perceive it – also the parts of it, that seems to be in the past.

The same applies to how you perceive the world. Any moment, including past ones, is a perfect moment when you choose to include everything in it, because if nothing is excluded the apparent difference between good and bad makes no difference.

Hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss is especially about inclusion versus exclusion.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not like what you perceive, you do not like yourself, because your perception is based on what you think you are. Consequently, it is in your own best interest to choose a perception, that makes you feel good.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

No need to visit the past to find your forgotten choices. You just need to know, that if you are not feeling groovy, you have made a wrong choice and it is never too late to change it.


NOTES:

Meditation is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self

Whether your eyes are open or not, whatever you experience is a symbol of that which is life. If that is not what you see, meditation will not change that. On the contrary, it will confirm the belief that there are good and bad things to experience.

To experience something, there must be more than one. Consequently, any experience in meditation is a maintenance and not an escape of duality. No worries. You do not need to escape duality. That which is you is not there. It is not possible – just like within the context of duality you are not in the greens of this image, though you may pretend to be ´there´*. But where you pretend to be you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Traditional eastern meditation, as it is carried out all over the world, seems to be all about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas the western meditation founded on Christianity seems to be about filling it with ideas of god.

Both the experience of emptying or filling the mind is a construction of thoughts.

The mind though is not a fact, but a construction of thoughts, that you have chosen to believe is real. So whether subtracting from this belief or adding to it, the result is just another belief.

To think that you can stop thoughts is an imagination based on the belief, that you are someone definitive – if you did not believe this, there would be no thoughts to stop, as there would be nobody thinking them …

If you do not believe thoughts to be yours, you cannot appear to be someone specific in a world of duality, so without them, you could not meditate. In other words, meditation is a multiplication of thoughts.

Who but the very dirty, needs to meditate every day to purify themselves. I do not even wash my clothes daily. Why should I clean them, when they are not dirty?

There´s nothing to purify.

Just like the world is a simulated reality, so is this image – and no meditation or anything else is gonna make it real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self (read more about the rogue consciousness of the self here), that meditation will purify, change or transform you. In the disguise of a do-gooder – sometimes called a guru – it promises you, that thoughts will disappear when you meditate so that there is nothing to disturb you from being at peace. Still, most have the opposite experience, namely that there appear to be more thoughts when they start meditating (read more about that here). If they dare to complain about it, they are in a patronising way told that this is part of the healing process.

Anything that involves more than one is an illusion, so the same applies to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. In other words, they are not different from anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, except if they are useful for you in regards to exposing the illusion of such a world.

There is, however, nothing to heal but the sick belief that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one.

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher of meditation has not something, that you do not have yourself. You need no help, because all what is needed is that which makes it possible to experience a the world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is one, and everybody has that.

What to conclude? Not much really, maybe to say that thoughts have no power unless you use them to prove you are someone specific because doing so you become a victim of them. Meditation, however, will not change that. On the contrary, mediation will enhance the belief, that you are someone specific because the reason you meditate is to fix the problems resulting from believing to be someone definitive.

There is no problem, but the belief in being someone specific.

So if anything should be stopped, it is the belief, that thoughts are yours. They only seem so, because you are holding onto them as if they are in you and therefore are you, and consequently appear to prove your existence as someone in the world. The same purpose is also the behind the idea of stopping them, except that in this case it is not about your existence as someone in the world, but about becoming someone different from it, namely a so-called spiritual person.

That which is you is not someone definitive but the formlessness of that which is one. And as formlessness is endless and therefore everything, so is you. Consequently it is not possible to become centred, higher or anything else.

But to make long short, there is nothing to be or become, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

PART 2:
Thoughts are only disturbing when you believe they are yours. And this you only believe, because they apparently can be used to prove, you are someone special and important. But if there is no need to be that, there is nobody to impress and nothing to search for.

Consequently, there is no sense in constructing anything specific out of thoughts, so they are not bid welcome. Hence they do not appear to be disturbing or to cause noise. In other words, thoughts do not need to be stopped or transformed via meditation, chanting and whatnot in order to have peace of mind.

Please do not turn the above into one more thing, that you must try to be. Firstly, not caring about thoughts is not a state of being but rather of not-knowing. Secondly, in a world of duality it is not possible to always go around in such a state, as without knowing the contrasts of duality, there is no world to experience. You cannot experience what is up, for example, if you do not know what is down**. Therefore the state of not-knowing, which is called a perfect moment in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, is on and off.

In other words, as a world of duality is make-believe, you cannot continuously appear to be in such a world without believing in something. Generally, you, therefore, stick to the belief that you are someone definitive. Nevertheless, you can choose to change this belief into another belief, namely that you pretend to be someone definitive. This allows you to believe in something, which is necessary to appear as if you are someone in a make-believe world, while at the same time having this belief undone since what you pretend to be, you are not.*

When the belief in being someone definitive is completely undone, there is nobody to experience a world of duality, so nothing appears to hide there never was and never will be anything else than non-duality since it is formless and therefore endless.

EPILOGUE:
Those into meditation would be better off switching to SSRIs or beta blockers and use the time saved to explore the world where they believe to be because doing that, they honour the choice of believing this. Thus they are able to correct it.

If you meditate to find peace inside yourself, you believe there is a difference between inside and outside. Hence you confirm that which seems to hide peace, namely separation.

The correction does not come from having insights, peace, power, being deeper or any other bullshit, that enhances the belief in being someone definitive, but from having nothing. That is the correction.

This does not mean you cannot have a house, for example, while you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, but that it is not perceived to be yours since you do not believe that you are there. It is just something you pretend to be.*


Though the difference between for example up and down is sensed in a perfect moment, it is not perceived to make a difference. This applies to any other contrast sensed. As nothing lasts in a world of duality neither does a perfect moment, so it is on and off moments of not-knowing. That is until you do not care about what and where you appear to be at all because that is an invitation for the enlightenment of that which is one to erase all experiences of duality.

*) Check hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, if you want to have the belief in being someone definitive undone by pretending to be someone definitive in a world of duality.

**) As duality is a construction of contrasts everything comes in pairs, for example up and down, and as you cannot experience one part of a contrast without knowing the other, be aware that as high as you go, the low you must fall. This is also so in a perfect moment. Yet there the apparent difference between up and down is not perceived to make a difference.
