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, as the empty breath is not healing it – only the belief that there is someone in it.

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 might 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 #5.2 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 #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

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 #5.2 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 regard 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 #4.1 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 (read more about that here). Often though it is hastily 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 try to fence off the frustration 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.


NOTE: This article is a continuation of the previous one Take-offs to ´the empty breath´. They are both part of hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

Meditation, the basic & special self

To define something as small, it must be contrasted by something tall. The special self, however, always tries to exclude one side of a contrast. For example, it wants love but not hate and positivity but not negativity. Thus the special self, therefore, excludes hate and negativity from itself by projecting it on others. But as you cannot experience one side of a contrast without the other, you exclude love and positivity when you exclude hate and negativity. So if you perceive to be free from hatred, the love you believe to experience is fake. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The function of the brain is to create entertaining thoughts for the self that it has fabricated. Therefore, if thoughts do not seem to please but frustrate the self, its consciousness most likely perceives the flow of them so it appears to comply with theoretical concepts of capitalism, socialism, spiritualism or another ism meant to make the self feel there is something better than the natural flow of thoughts from the brain.

But since this perception is founded on a particular belief system, it is restricted by its concepts. And since self-discipline does not make you feel delighted but sad, you neither get the fulfilment your belief system promises to deliver. Instead, you get stress and confusion – especially because the thoughts you have compiled to keep your perception in line with your belief system do not like your manipulation. Hence, they move faster and faster to escape your domination.

No worries, if you do not try to stop this restless energy, it automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath, where the slate is wiped clean for all misperceptions. Read more about that in hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone. Hence, only one perception left, namely the one that makes you happy because it is in sync with the experiences the brain produces of a world outside of you. Fortunately, you do not have to compose it yourself. The brain does that automatically when you do not interfere with it. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

The special self likes to believe that manipulating thoughts into visualising something specific makes it happen. This idea makes it appear to be in control of its life.

But it is like thinking the TV show you turn on by hitting the remote control is made by you. Somebody else has made the show, and the only thing you can change is your perception of it. This is also how the basic self has been transformed into a special self, namely by perceiving the basic self so that it seems to have become an independent being in charge of its own life.

But the special self needs constant approval from others to feel this is so. To get that, it often establishes a family, which can be manipulated into giving it the confirmation it needs. If that does not work as intended, the special self may pay money to a psychologist who will ratify its uniqueness. Still, it does not realise how dependent it is on those supporting its perception of being independent.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Having established itself as someone in charge of its own life, the special self needs to meditate or something else that seems to make it able to control thoughts to fool itself into believing that thoughts are not produced by the brain but itself. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since the basic self is relative to the experiences created by the brain (read more about that here), it is not someone definitive. Thus the inexact flow of thoughts coming from the brain seems natural. But the special self thinks it does not make sense because it wants to be someone definitive.

To distance itself from the brain, it composes a perception in which the basic self seems to have been transformed into a being independent of the brain. However, this twisted perception calls for more thoughts than those few the brain has available to make a perception aligned with the basic self. Thus, the special self meditates to generate more thoughts.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Those who perceive themselves as unique beings with the power to do things in their own way and pace need many thoughts to justify this twisted perception. However, the movement of all these thoughts soon becomes so hectic that they try to slow them down via meditation.

That is the official reason. But as anybody who has meditated knows, thoughts multiply when trying to control them. And that is the real reason for meditating because many thoughts are needed to construct an appearance of being unique.

 ∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self does not feel disturbed by the flow of thoughts that come from the brain. On the contrary, it loves this quiet flow because it makes it able to serve the brain in a laid-back way. But the special self who want to be the master of the brain feels troubled by thoughts. However, the thoughts from the brain are few.

The frantic flow of thoughts, the special self experiences, has been generated by itself. It has multiplied the simple flow, the brain develops to maintain a basic itself into a large group of thoughts from where it can compose a perception of itself as an independent. Read more about that here. Then, when it needs a break from the multitudes of thoughts, it looks for something mind-numbing like alcohol, drugs or a mantra.

Should it really manage to relax, it feels horrified because, without all the special thoughts it has generated, the image of being in control falls apart. Thus there is no self-deception to hide that being someone you are dependent on, the brain, which depends on you to confirm its experiences as real. However, not fighting this interdependence, there is nothing to hide, all the brain´s experiences of you as someone in a capsule of time and space are as unreal as you being someone in a video game. Therefore, appearing to be in a world defined by time and space feels as entertaining as playing a game.

The special self feels dominated by the natural flow of thoughts coming from the brain. But it is dominated by nothing other than its perception of the flow. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The brain works like nature. Therefore, serving it, you also have fun throwing seeds here and everywhere without worrying about the outcome. But those who believe to be in charge of themselves think much about the result of their actions. They want to get as much as possible for as little as possible (read more about that here). Hence they organise the seeds in straight lines, which results in much profit but no fun. Some solve that by buying things that make them happy, and others try to find something spiritual inside them to feel good. But the way to feel good is to serve the brain because it has created you to do that.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you are scripted by the brain to feel sexual lust, you will feel horny no matter what you do. However, you will not enjoy your passion if you try to suppress it through meditation or tantra sex. Read more about sex here.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you perceive yourself to be detached from the experiences you seem to have, you fool yourself because you need them to prove this.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you try to solve absent-mindedness by mindfulness meditation or grounding exercises, you make it worse because you do not know how to take care of yourself. Only your maker knows that. And since it is the brain, the solution, in the context of believing to be someone, is to be aligned with the stream of thoughts coming from the brain instead of using meditation to distance yourself from the stream of thoughts.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Mindfulness is for those who cannot help exploiting others – just like in ancient times, meditation was introduced to the barbarians seeking shelter in Ashrams, so they could learn to control themselves and not abuse others.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self enjoys being aware of itself as someone substantial by continually perceiving the experiences the brain produces as tangible. However, if it twists its perception of these experiences, so they seem to be spiritual, for example, they are not perceived as they are but how the self thinks they should be. Consequently, the self disassociates itself from the brain and thus itself, since what and where it appears to be is a product of the brain.

In other words, the self´s perceived independence of the brain is a disassociation from itself. And every act that the self perceives to do in its own way and pace deepens the alienation. That is why meditating to become purer, higher or whatnot enhances the feeling of remoteness instead of closeness. Thus you do not get the joy of appearing to be someone substantial in a tangible world, nor do you get around to undo the belief that being definable is real because that is suppressed by the imagination of being spiritual.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self needs alcohol, drugs, meditation or something else mind-numbing to escape the fear of repercussion that its control entails. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since it is impossible to alter the stream of thoughts that the brain produces to uphold the basic self it has created, the consciousness that the brain has installed in it make a perception of the stream that establishes itself as the maker of it. Then, like a god, it says, »This is my creation.« And Bam! The world, as it perceives it, appears to manifest. Next, it says, »I am an independent being.´ And Bam! The perception is ratified as a fact.

Third, it builds a character with a few flaws, so it always has something to improve through meditation, Tai Chi or something else that makes it seem to be in control and thus able to be and have something specific. This makes it feel unique but not satisfied because it is all on its own.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self has no need to relax or transform itself through meditation, yoga, fitness and whatnot. On the contrary, since its perception is in sync with the stream of thoughts that come from the brain, it is rewarded with shots of happiness. And since this regularly makes it forget to remember being somebody, it knows there is nothing to transform.

On the other hand, the special self never forgets to remember being somebody. It is always on a mission to become more and be part of something greater. But since that never turns out as expected, it settles for following a guru or something else that seems to improve its social status.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you need to relax, you are on a mission to be someone definitive. To achieve that, you make a perception of the stream of thoughts coming from the brain where thoughts perceived as upsetting have been excluded. However, this does not result in peace but fear of the repressed. Not trying to edit the ever-changing flow of thoughts but perceiving it as ´it is what it is,´ you are not someone definitive but relative to the present experience produced by the brain. Thus hating what you dislike feels just as exciting as loving what you like. Hence there is no need to relax.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self always looks for something to fix what it perceives as wrong. But it objects to the solution that would fix everything immediately, namely not perceiving the brain as an enemy but a friend (read more about that here). By doing that, everybody becomes a friend because the experience of somebody is produced by the brain.

Ultimately speaking, the solution is to undo the belief in being someone who experiences something. As this is the end of being anything, the special self avoids it by meditating or something else that seems to confirm it exists.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Nothing appears to be good enough for the special self because it interprets the noise in its head as a voice whispering, ´there must be more.´ This is also the voice it follows when it meditates to find more peace. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you perceive the brains basic rendering of you as someone in a capsule of time and space to be a bit boring, the special self sets in by offering you more exotic ways of perceiving it, for example, by coming from the heart (read more about that here), living in the now or having direct experiences.

But since all experiences – no matter where you believe they come from or how they seem to be experienced – are a construction of thoughts (read more about that here) fabricated by the brain, the perception of having such special experiences is nothing but a reconstruction of the thoughts made by the brain.

However, this reconstruction does not work because it is not in tune with the brain´s rendering of you in a capsule of time and space. The experience the brain creates of the present consist of all thoughts popping up now, including those of the past and the future. When in sync with the whole bunch, every moment feels perfect. See hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

But this is not how it feels if you eliminate some of those thoughts so you can adjust to concepts like coming from the heart, living in the now or having direct experiences. This makes you feel disconnected. The same applies when you try to follow a plan.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The self, that the brain has fabricated from nothing (read more about that here) and continuously administer so it appears to be something, feels restricted when it imagines the freedom it could have if not managed by the brain but itself. But the self cannot be changed, only the perception of it. So no matter how you perceive yourself, you are still the same self that the brain has created and controls.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is foolish to think you are someone in a video game just because it seems to make you feel something. Whatever you believe in feeling is based on your interpretation of computer-generated events. In other words, what you feel is made by you. The same applies to what you feel in the world where you believe to read this. If you feel good about it, it is because you choose to interpret it so you feel this way. It is also make-believe if what you read makes you angry. You get this feeling because you have chosen to perceive this article in a way that makes you upset. Thus it is your choice whether you feel good or angry.

It is also your own doing to conclude that a god, higher consciousness or whatnot is making the world where you believe to be. There is neither god nor you, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.


NOTES:

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 remind 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, 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, namely 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.

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 regard 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.

Feelings confirm you to be alive in a capsule of time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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.

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) is assumable the fastest way. But then again, time is an illusion.

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

It is 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 bad 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 but in dreams, and they are not real

You are a person in a dreamscape.

The photo you believe to see here is not the one Alexius has published. Ultimately he does not exist, nor you or the picture. But within the context where you, Alexius and his photo are experienced to be real, all experiences are fabricated by the brain. Thus you the picture you see is made by the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world we see on the screen in a cinema is made from frequencies of light projected from somewhere else onto a flat screen. We do not see the frequencies, nor do we experience the world they simulate on the screen to be flat. Actually, we do not see anything. What we believe to see is fabricated by the brain. Read more about that in Eyes do not see, they translate.

Nowadays, as most movies are digitized and often seen on a computer, it may not be correct to say that the world on the screen consists of nothing but frequencies. It is probably more correct to say, that the world we experience 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, it makes no sense to us before the brain has translated it.

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. Frequencies of light are all there is on the screen. The world we seem to see and feel there is generated by the brain based on the frequencies that the senses pick up from the screen. At least according to the brain, that uses five per cent of its capacity to make an ongoing story about you as someone who experiences to be in a world defined by time and space.

All experiences, regardless of perceived by you as imaginary, real, mundane or spiritual, are made by the same organ in the brain and stored in the rest of it with the purpose of defining the brains creation of you as someone living a world that is outside of you. In this case, so you experience watching a world in 3D on a screen in a cinema although there is nothing tangible on the screen. Read more about the setup of the brain in Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

Even though this rendering of a sunset does not look like a ´real´ sunset, memories of an evening, 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 is 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. The body is not substantial. Actually, it is not there at all.

Since a dream is made out of nothing, everything in it that seems to be something is make-believe. This applies also to the experience of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

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 tangible because the brain, like a magician, renders nothing into something, so the self it also has created from nothing can be entertained by experiencing to be in a glamorous show in which it seems to be a substantial being in a material world.*

Believing to be someone in this show is just as foolish as, within the context of it, to think you are someone in a dream. It is not possible. The dream is insubstantial, and you are substantial. Likewise, that which is you is not in a material world, nor in a spiritual for that matter. It is not anywhere because it takes more than one to be somewhere, and there is no more than that which is one. But metaphorically speaking, you could say that it is dreaming about being someone in the magic show of the brain.

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 to undo the belief that there is more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Ultimately speaking the frequencies, that the brain base its story upon, are also imagined, because nothing definable is real, as it takes more than one to define something and reality is that which is one.

For the same reason, there is no god, consciousness or spiritual beings behind the story about substantial beings in a material world. This is probably the reason science have concluded, the experience of world made by elements of matter is an illusion, because it consists of nothing but empty space.

Since Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are part of the experience created from out of empty space, they are, just like anything else experienced, a fantasy. So do not consider them to a manifestation of truth but visions exposing the tricks of the brain so the belief in them as real can be undone.

Within the context of this dream, it is a waste of time trying to make it better. You are not the director. The brain is in charge. And just like you need to follow the rules in a game like Monopoly to feel entertained, you must be in sync with the brain to feel amused by its tricks, when you appear to be someone in the world it renders from out of nothing. Doing that is easy when you know that to appear in its world is like being in a dream. It is not real. You are not there. It is something you pretend to be. Here you can read more about not being in a game or anywhere.

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 socialism or whatnot.

Alexius has fun pretending to salute a friend with a glass of Limoncello. At other times he has 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´ to perceive the differences in the brains rendering of a tangible world to make a difference, so nothing seems to be important.

There are so many personalities you can pretend to be. Here 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 emptiness seems too much, you can use it as a zero fill and imagine someone in it, that you pretend to be. This is, contrary to believing to be someone, much entertaining. So besides having fun from out of nothing, you also, in a laid-back and joyful way, have the belief in being someone undone because what and where you pretend to be, you are not.

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

Believing to be someone who is separated from others by time and space is not a problem if it is something you pretend to be, because what you pretend to be, you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end is directed explicitly towards enjoying the belief in being someone while having it undone.

You could also connect with the empty breath. It automatically syncs the world of the inner and outer senses (see hack #5.3 ´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. Hence you become indifferent to the ups and downs in the world of the outer senses.

CANCELLEX The world is in the eye of the beholder

Alexius Jorgensen, Non Teacher.

You will hardly find any quotes to back up Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings because he does not read books or meet with so-called spiritual persons. Also, there is no specific order, nor a formal beginning and end or an attempt to find a conclusion. There is nothing you need to learn other than to unlearn everything you know. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius has no lineage to anybody considered spiritual, nor is he part of anything considered spiritual. He is not even part of the enlightenment of that which is one, as it takes more than one to be part of something. That is why he is someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. This he became in his early 20s, which you can read about in hack #6.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

He did not know about the enlightenment of that which is one back then, and that is still the case because it takes more than one to be aware of something. For the same reason, you cannot share the enlightenment of that which is one, which is why he never talked about it until he was around 60 years old and saw the unenlightened talking about it on the web as if they knew what it is.

In his nativity, he thought they would like to hear from someone who is compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, but speculating and secondhand knowledge seem to be preferred to someone who has seen what cannot be seen.

But since he is not interested in fame or making money, he started writing about it as it is, namely that a world where there seems to be more is an illusion. This is as evident as Santa Claus is make-believe. He is simply too fat to crawl down the chimney. Likewise, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, a world where there seems to be more than one is not real. If you apply one or more of The Duality Hacks, the belief that you are someone in such a world will be undone.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are just as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one. But as this is what they expose, they undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

This does not mean, oneness is realised. That is not possible, because it calls for more than one to become aware of something. But within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, it is possible to point out that the belief in being there appears to hide, there never was or will be more than the formlessness of oneness.

The undoing of this belief does not involve meditation, transformation or constraining yourself. You go on as if you are used to while The Duality Hacks do their thing. In other words, you have fun believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one while this belief is being undone. There is an exception to this, though. Hack #6.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one undoes the belief in a split second. You are not enjoying it because the belief in being someone is also abruptly terminated.

Since that which is one is formless, it is endless. Consequently, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness and therefore neither non-teacher nor non-student. But while we appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, it looks like we are separated as non-teacher and non-student. Fortunately, The Duality Hacks see to that the apparent difference is not perceived to make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That was what Alexius started writing about in 2011 and started publishing in 2013. It was not until later it was labelled as HACK #6, Inner senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it and supplemented with new writings in 2015 and 2016. They were mainly about glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which like all the other duality hacks, entails a more gradual undoing of the belief in being and having more than that which is one. In the same period, hack #7 Alone together we go home was put together.

HACK #1, Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, was formulated and published in 2013. One year later, HACK #2, Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality rule out separation, was released. In 2015 hack #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive is freedom from being someone definitive was added. When he proofread HACK #6, Inner senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it in 2017, HACK #5, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss evolved.

In the following years, HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end were added. The last part of it, Hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality, was added to at the beginning of 2021 without any announcement, as it was still in a state of a draft. For that reason, it is continuously updated. Actually, that goes for all The Duality Hacks, so what you see is the present version of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

As far as Alexius knows, there are no new hacks on the way. And it may take a while before hack #7 Alone together we go home is released because, at the time, he is mostly into upgrading the old ones.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are just as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one. But as this is what they expose, they undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

It does not mean, you realise oneness. That is not possible because it calls for more than one to become aware of something. But within the context of the world where you believe to be, it is possible to point out that believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one appears to hide, there never was or will be more than that which is one.

You cannot change your experience of the world, but you can change the perception of it

When the body and the personality are used as instruments for pretending to be someone in a world defined by time and space, that which is you is not believed to be there, because what you pretend to be you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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 or heavy perception is up to you. Choosing a light perception, you do not experience the limitations of the capsule to be so heavy. Thus it is easier pretending to have a body and a personality to govern it, instead of believing it is you.

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

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 it seems to work better. It is just different ways of pretending to be someone and not that which is you. A 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 definitive.

If this is what you want, you will hold onto the specific thoughts, feelings and behaviours, that you assume makes you more important or loved and hide those that seem to belittle you. 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 the greatest or someone at all, the personality is not seen as a tool for establishing a specific image of you that seems real but for pretending to be in a world encapsulated by time and space.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

That which is one has no room for someone definitive, as it requires more than one to be that. 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.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one without relating to it. Doing so you seem to be part of it unless it is something you pretend to do. In that case, you appear to be in the world, but not of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Your money cannot save you, neither sex, love or romance. And your parents, precious children and the latest flat-screen TV are not able to 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. 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 – just like you within the context of it pretends to be in the world of Monopoly.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Far from all persons respond to you in the way you expect. Nevertheless, the response you perceive to receive from others 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, changing the perception of what you receive 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, changing the perception of what you receive, changes what you believe to be.

How you perceive this article does not say 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.

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 get money. It is the intention behind giving money, that returns to you immediately. The sense of giving and receiving is happening in yourself, so if you want to experience being loved, love got to 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.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As the world is experienced through contrasts, you cannot have love without hate, for example. Thus you must acknowledge the hatred in you to feel the love you have. Doing that you can give love and thus perceive that others respond to you with love, because what you give you get.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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 hatred, you have hidden in yourself, so that you can have and give love, because without the acknowledgement of hate you cannot see you have love.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not like how you perceive your experience, you do not love 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.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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.

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 they see is what they have because you cannot see what you do not have.

You probably perceive that those judged to be unsympathetic upset you. But that is only because of the way you have chosen to perceive them.

Consequently, everybody is perceived with love if you have love. And no matter how they appear to respond, you feel loved by everybody.

Giving and receiving love does not mean that you must love everything others do or say. In the case of Alexius, for example, he does not like that his cats bring home half-dead lizards and mice. Their behaviour, though, does not change his love for them.

You already know how it feels 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. So 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.

When not feeling groovy, you need to change the perception of whatever seems to drag you down. It is never too late to do that.

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 film is already made from the beginning to the end. Nevertheless, you can change the way you perceive it – also the parts of it, that seems to be happening in the past.

The same applies to how you perceive the world where you appear to be. Any moment, including past ones, can make you happy if you choose the appropriate perception. In other words, if you are not happy, you have chosen to perceive the world in a way that makes you sad.

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.

Bad feelings are often justified by somebody else and, therefore, appears to be caused by something outside of the sufferer. This justification, however, falls apart if the world is in the eye of the beholder. Just like the whole maths system collapses if one plus one is not two. You cannot recognise something, you do not have. If you perceive somebody to disturb you, you had the seeds for being disturb like that. In the say way that you have the pigments in your skin that makes the sun able to colour it in a certain way.

You get upset by something because of the way you choose to perceive it.

If there is love in you, the brown skin is perceived to be beautiful. But if you feel uncertain about yourself, you probably perceive faults and missing parts in the colour embodied by the sun, as if something is wrong and needs to be fixed. This perception, however, reveals nothing about the sun but everything about the way you feel about yourself. The less you want to face that, the more you blame the sun for making you distressed, regardless you already had that feeling and it has nothing to with the sun but the suppression of your self-hatred.

When you want the world to respond in a way that you define as lovingly, your self-hatred is exposed when you do not get the right response. But instead of acknowledging that the world is in the eye of the beholder, you blame it for rejecting you.

You see what you give and you who choose what to give.

Acknowledging the world is in the eye of the beholder, it is obvious you cannot give what you do not have. And since what you receive is perceived in regards to that, you cannot receive love if you do not have it. So if the hatred is what you perceive to receive, that is what you have given, and therefore also what you have and are.

Love cannot be forced, so you cannot choose to love yourself. But you can choose to acknowledge, that you hate yourself and actively suppress feeling it. Doing so you will there is love in you because hate and love are two sides of the same coin. The only reason love has been hidden is that when you suppress hate, you cover up love as well.

Therefore, be thankful when others seem to upset you. They help to expose your hatred, and if recognised as yours, you will also see you have its contrast, love. Thus the whole world is perceived to love you!


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.

There is only a need to relax through meditation and whatnot because you always are on the way to a better moment than this one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Traditional eastern meditation seems to be about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas western meditation founded on Christianity wants to fill it with ideas of god. The mind, however, is not a fact but make-believe. So both the experience of having no or little thoughts or only thoughts of god is a self-deception.

To think that you can stop or add specific thoughts is an assumption based on the belief that you are someone definitive. If you did not believe that thoughts would not appear to come from somebody but nobody. Hence there would be no reason to meditate. 

Who but those perceiving themselves to be dirty, needs to meditate to be purified.

That meditation will purify, change or transform you is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self.* It promises you, that thoughts, at least the disturbing ones will disappear when you meditate so that there is nothing to prevent you from being at peace. Still, most have the opposite experience, namely that they experience more thoughts when they start to meditate. Should they dare to complain about it to their teacher, they are told it is part of the healing process.

But there is nothing to heal other than the sick belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

You have all that it takes. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher does not have something, you do not have yourself. You do not need help from anybody. 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 since it is formless and therefore endless, you have nothing but that.

What to conclude? Not much really, maybe to say that thoughts have no power unless you seek out particular ones that seem to prove you are someone definitive because doing so you become a victim of them. Meditation does not change that. On the contrary, mediation enhances the belief that you are someone definitive because the reason you meditate is to fix the problems coming from that belief. So if anything should be stopped, it is the belief that you are someone definitive.

Since that which is you is the formlessness of that which is one, being centred, balanced or anything else that requires a shape is an illusion.

To make long short, what you believe to be is nothing because it requires more than one to be something and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. As oneness, therefore, is all-inclusive and meditation is exclusive, to meditate is a denial of that which is one.

Meditating to make thoughts and feelings go away confirms the belief that they are something, whereas experiencing them as they are, reveals they are nothing because the experience does not last.

The belief in an illusion is undone when you take a closer look at it. Hence you are not gonna have the belief in being some definitive undone with eyes closed but wide open. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not denying that which is one does not require you to get rid of thoughts and feelings via meditation. On the contrary, instead of rejecting something you judge to be disturbing, hatred for example, you include it by completely being it. Since hate is defined by its contrast, love, you cannot be hateful without acknowledging love. Thus it is also included.

And since a contrast cancels out itself when both sides meet (read more about that here), the feeling perceived to be disturbing is gone. As it, therefore, cannot define you, you become less defined, the more you include. Inevitable you enter in a state of not-knowing. Read more about the bliss of that in hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

Whether you feel glad, sad or something else, it does not last long when you do not try to avoid it by anylising it, for example, but totally feel it. Hence no feeling seems dangerous but can be enjoed the moment it last.

You may have suppressed some thoughts and feelings so much that it seems impossible to include them by experiencing them as they are. In that case, do not distract yourself from the discomfort, the suppression has caused somewhere in the body by looking for explanations but simply experience it as it is. This may seem unbearable, but if you do not try to stop or change it, the experience fades away because it cannot be defined when totally included. This also includes the way you defined the thoughts and feelings in regards to who or what you once suppressed. Consequently, you are set free from your own imprisonment.

Read about not being exclusive but inclusive in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss. In hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality you can read about not defining what you feel as something specific, so it becomes dualistic and you feel complete.

Thoughts only seem disturbing when you believe they are yours. This you do because they apparently can be used to prove, that you are what you believe to be. But if there is no need to be something, in particular, you do not need thoughts to prove anything. As they, therefore, are of no interest to you, there is no need to meditate to get rid of them.

APPENDIX:
Those into meditation would be better off switching to SSRIs or beta-blockers and use the time saved to explore the world where they appear to be. That would honour their choice in believing to be there. Hence they can 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, being at peace, deeper or something else that is founded on the belief in being someone definitive but from being nothing. That is the correction.

This does not mean you cannot have a house, for example, but that it is not perceived to be yours, therefore, do not attest to you as somebody. It is just something you pretend to be. Read more about that hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.
