SXM When senses are not used to experience something, enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome

Gallery_Inner-Senses_1024x1024The only reason you demand being relaxed, free, excited and whatnot are that you believe to be someone special in the world of the outer senses. But if you do not give the outer senses your full attention, the inner senses will supply you with a perfect moment, where glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one will fill you with so much joy, that the need to be someone at all is gone.

The way to not give the outer senses your full attention is to not believe, the experiences they deliver are real. This is done by not giving a shit about upholding the image of you as someone significant in a world, where there seems to be more than one. The more you do not give a shit, the more the inner senses take over.

You can also choose not to choose and follow the guidance of the empty breath. Read the article Take-offs to ´the empty breath´Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite a take-off to the empty breath to learn to connect with the empty breath, or read What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? to get an idea about that, or The nature of ´the empty breath´ to learn about its guidance.

If somebody seems to cheat you, reject you or something else that you judge to be unfair, you choose not to believe this to be real, and so you set yourself and others free from the world of the outer senses. It is in your own best interest to set everybody free, even though you may think, that not everybody deserves to this. But setting them free, the world of the outer senses fades out, so that you can connect with the empty breath, that opens the door to the world of the inner senses, where enlightenment of that which is one is waiting for you to bid it welcome.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A way to undo the belief in the world of the outer senses is to perceive everything there as not real but symbols of that which is – just like you, for example, perceive the written word milk not as real but a symbol of that which is.

When perceiving the whole world of the outer senses as symbols, none of its apparent differences makes a difference, because they are all symbols of the same – and so there is no foundation for separation. This perception opens the inner senses from where you can experience glimpses of enlightenment or bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

But as someone in the world of the outer senses you cannot perceive everything there as symbols, because in order to appear as someone significant there, you have excluded the parts of it, that does not fit into your chosen the image of yourself. That is unless you include this separation or accept the guidance of the empty breath, which you do by not accepting the apparent reality in the world of the outer senses.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The enlightenment of that which is one is not something you find like you find other things in the world. Enlightenment is rather that you do not try to find anything so that there is not something to hide, you are not someone definable but one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. In other words, no need not look for enlightenment, but for that which you are using to hide it. You could also just accept the guidance of the empty breath.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If from reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings you get the impression, that the inner senses are less deceptive than the outer ones, you have chosen to be deceived into believing that you can become someone better, higher or wiser via the inner senses. And if that is your purpose, they will cause you as much suffering as the outer ones.

But if your purpose is to not become anything at all, so that there is not something to hide the formlessness of that which is you, the inner senses will speed up the undoing of the belief in being someone at all.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Constantly trying to be somebody stresses you, because that turns you into a creature frozen into definable and dense appearances and that which is you is not definable, but extremely fast, formless and free flowing. The inner sense is constantly urging you to go with this flow of nothingness instead of believing it is possible to be somebody. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In a world, where there seems to be more than one, you always need to be and have more so you can show off as someone, who is more important than others.

If you want to be more famous than others you need lots of fans in order to prove your popularity. If you need to feel enlightened, you want others to express how wise you are, so that you can use their praise to deny your darker sides and show off as someone light and spiritual.

But you can never bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one if it is something you need because needing it implies you are without it – and how can you be without it when that which is you are no different from that which is one. Least of all can you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, if you want to use it to make you appear as someone important because that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

You will have no more than one glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one, if you use your interpretation of this glimpse to promote yourself as someone with a vision for a better future full of love or whatever you imagine will turn you into the new messiah, which has been the case with most gurus impacting the public in the last century, for example Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Vivekananda, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Osho, or modern self-help gurus like Eckhart Tolle.

When there is no need to use glimpses of enlightenment to save the world but rather to undo the belief in it, you are set free to be used by the glimpses, that will keep coming until you cannot tell them apart, so that there is not something definable to experience and therefore not someone definitive to hide the formless enlightenment of that which is one.


NOTES:

You cannot come back to that which is one, because you never left it

When thoughts keep on moving faster and faster, you are on full speed back to that which is you. That is if you use the speed as a run-up to the inner senses, where the extreme speediness does not seem terrifying, as it is nothing compared to that which is you. It is so fast that it is not possible to leave it. In other words, you are not returning to that which is you. You are rather leaving the belief that the dullness of the world experienced with the outer senses can hide the formlessness of that which is you. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When thoughts keep on moving faster and faster, you are on full speed back to that which is you. That is, if you use the speed as a take-off to the empty breath*, that will connect you with the high frequency of the inner senses, where the extreme speed seems like nothing, as the inner senses feels closer to the incredible speed of which is you, which is so fast that it is not possible to conceive. In other words, it is formless and therefore cannot be left, unless you imagine it to slow down so that there is something to be conceived as if it has a form amongst other forms in a world where there seems to be more than one. Even though this is just a fantasy, as that which is you is no different from that which is one, the belief that it is possible seems to hide the formlessness of that which is you. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Enlightenment of that which is one cannot reveal itself, if you want it to be an experience that change or expand your consciousness, as it takes more than one to be aware of anything. Yet glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one can be experienced, because no glimpse is complete and neither is an experience.

But if enlightenment is what you think you need to become better or higher, you will assume glimpses of it can be used for something specific and so they will seem to disappear until you realise, that you do not need more than what you already have, namely the life of that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is nothing you can do in a world where there seems to be more than one in order to come back to that which is one because you never left it. But you can do something to undo the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. This belief is undone the moment you do not need to believe you have something in a world where there seems to be more than one, as without this belief there is nothing to prove you are someone there, and not being anybody there, you do not need to believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

In order to jump from one place to another you need to speed up. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To physically jump from one place to another you need to speed up. Likewise, you need to speed up thoughts – or rather you just do not try to slow them down – so that they move at a speed where it is hard to understand them. Consequently, there is no understanding to keep you from taking off to the empty breath.* The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The experience of having fast-moving thoughts in the world of the outer senses is not comfortable for the body, but if the speed of thoughts is used as take-off to the empty breath*, it will synchronise the speed of the thoughts with the fast frequencies of the inner senses, which is the end of feeling restless and the start of feeling indifferent. That is if you do not fight the ways of the empty breath* or try to correct or transform your experience of being someone definitive in the world of the outer senses. In others words, to jump from the world of the outer senses to the empty breath*, which connects you with the inner senses, you do what you always need to do when jumping from one place to another, namely, speed up.

What is said in the above about speedy thoughts also applies to for example ongoing misery. When there is plenty of it, it can be used as a take-off to the empty breath*, provided you do not try to escape what you feel but are nothing but that. Plenty of happiness or any other feeling can be used in the same way.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Connecting with the empty breath is not like breaking on through to the other side, but like going in a driverless car on a highway to the formlessness of that which is one.

What is formless has no sides and therefore no end. Consequently, there is no more than that which is one, so if you believe to be in a world where there seems to see more than one, you have chosen to be deceived by the senses.

The info or the thought construction of somebody tangible is stored at the edge of black hole. In reality it has never left is, because there is no black hole. There is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The info or the thought construction needed to make someone appear to be tangible in a world defined by time and space is picked up from the edge of a black hole. In reality, though it has never been applied. It is not possible, because there is no more than that which is one. Yet, if you if experience yourself to be someone definitive in a world supposedly created from a big bang coming out of a black hole, you imagine it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. No worries, this mistake is easily undone, if you do not share this experiences with somebody appearing to be outside or inside of you. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If the change from outer to inner senses is complete, the dullness of the world sensed by the outer senses is no more experienced. Consequently the slowness, that seems to make a world outside of you appear to be tangible, cannot hide there is nothing outside of you, neither inside. The thoughts that made up this illusion is rapidly taken away by the inner senses so that there is not something to hide the enlightenment of that which is one. Such a complete change is not gradual but very abrupt, and as it is associated with death most avoid the enlightenment of that which is one.

NOTES:

  • There are no facts to prove, there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as it would take more than one to prove it. The explanations presented in this article are therefore not made up of facts but metaphors, that are used to explain, what cannot be explained, namely that it is not possible to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, as there is no more than that which is one.

Not knowing what and where you are, thoughts lose their meaning

To avoid being influenced by thoughts no special posture or surroundings are needed. All that is needed is to not be concerned about the outcome of anything at all, so that the apparent difference of attaining something or not makes no difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you do not believe thoughts to be real, it is easy to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, because all that is needed to bid it welcome is to not be attentive to the meaning of thoughts, which is not to be mistaken for stopping them, as that requires someone definitive doing it – and to be definitive requires lots of thoughts judged to have a specific meaning.

Neither should it be understood as you become aware of the enlightenment of that which is one instead of thoughts. It is not possible to be aware of the enlightenment of that which is one, as it takes more than one to be aware of something.

Bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one is to not be exclusive but inclusive.

In other words, there is nobody to know if you are enlightened because to know something requires more than one. Also, what you appear to be in the world is not enlightened, because a person cannot be enlightened.

Yet a person can step aside so that there is not something definable to hide the indefinable light of that which is one. To not be exclusive but inclusive is to step aside because inclusiveness neutralise contrasts and without them, there is nothing define you as someone definitive and therefore not something to not bid welcome the formlessness of the enlightenment of that which is one.

You are nobody in the enlightenment of that which is one. Well, also in the world, but in the enlightenment of that which is one there is not something to fill the nothingness of you with thoughts of importance, and so there is nobody to experience the enlightenment of that which is one. 

Yet returning from to a world where there seems to be more than one, there are vague memories of such a world being destroyed by a light stronger than 1000s of sun and leaving nothing but that which is one, as Arjuna describes it in the Bhagavad Gita.

Remembering there is no more than that which is one is not gonna change you into someone, who is wiser, better or more happy, but into nobody, as the conclusion is that a world where there seems to be more than one is not there.

The enlightenment of that which is one is one perpetual present, and therefore cannot be brought back into a world of linear time, so if returning to such a world you are not in the enlightenment of that which is one. Yet, as there are vague memories of it, you are to be compared to someone who is the enlightenment of that which is one. The person though that you appear to be in the world is in no way changed by this, neither is it necessary because the appearance of you in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion and so is any change of it.

The visual aspect of having glimpses of enlightenment can for example reveal the birth of a universe.The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If a person only partially bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one there will just be glimpses of it in the form of hearing, feeling or tasting an echo of that which is one. It can also be spaced out visions of travelling through different universes, seeing Jesus or the birth of a new universe in slow motion, which is very is exciting of course, but as it is something experienced, it has nothing to do with the enlightenment of that which is one.

Glimpses of enlightenment turn you into someone, who appears to be in the world of the outer senses but not of it
You cannot go around as a person enlightened of that which is one, but you can go around having glimpses of it. If you do, you may seem distant from the world, as if you are not there. Yet you are more present than most because to be present you cannot be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Living in the now has nothing to do with living. It is a numb state of mind for those trying to fit into a still photo imagined to be life, as they are afraid of going with the flow of it.

Chances are, however, that you quickly will look for more glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one and as you, therefore, are participating in the quest for being and having more, you will be fixated you in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, you are not present at all, because that which is you is the formlessness of oneness and as formless is endless there is no more than that which is one.

The way to undo your belief in thoughts, as if they are yours and therefore making you appear to be someone special, is to include all of them exactly as they appear to be.

The swing of the empty breath feels as the curved line in an yin yang sign swinging back and forth, up and down, from side to side and everything in between within a ball without definitive borders, that crosses your body below or above the waist and in the head or above it. This vibration synchronizes the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high frequency of the inner senses, so no kind of speediness or confusion in the world of the outer senses seems upsetting. When experiences in the world of the outer senses is based on the world of the inner senses nothing is interpreted as upsetting. It is rather the other way around, you cannot help but laugh. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The swing of the empty breath feels as if the curved line in a yin-yang sign is swinging forth and back, up and down, from side to side and everywhere in between within a ball that has no definitive centre or border and that crosses your lower and upper body. This swing synchronises the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high frequency of the inner senses, so no kind of speediness or confusion in the world of the outer senses seems upsetting. In other words, when experiences in the world of the outer senses are based on the world of the inner senses, it does not matter if something appears to be upsetting or not. You are indifferent to appearances – including your own – and cannot help but smile. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Being a medium for the empty breath, you are guided by glimpses of enlightenment
The main reason for feeling stressed as an appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one is that it takes so much energy to make thoughts and feelings appear as if they come from someone specific.

Not being someone specific feels as if you are nothing, which seems very discomforting until you realise that being empty you are a vessel the empty breath*, that takes you into the high-frequency world of the inner senses, where glimpses of enlightenment are the base for experiencing the low-frequency world of the outer senses.

The excitements in the world of the outer senses requires you to appear, as if you are someone definitive, because you cannot have a specific experience without being someone definitive.

Being guided by the empty breath is like being on autopilot. It is so relaxing and it feels as if nothing is wrong no matter what you appear to be and have, unless you do not still insist in being entertained by all the apparent exciting possibilities in the world of the outer senses, as they only bring pleasure if you work hard to appear as someone specific with its own thoughts and feelings.

This is very stressful compared to being a medium for the empty breath, as it automatically syncs the stress from the world of outer senses with the tranquillity of the inner senses so that you become indifferent to the apparent differences of a world where there seems to be more than one.

You are lucky, when everything seems to fall apart, because this may trigger so much sadness, that you stop believing the construction of thoughts you have based your identity upon is that which is you.

This synchronisation occurs when the high frequencies coming from the inner senses are not fenced off by the belief that thoughts belong to someone definitive, and no effort is made to be active in the low-frequency world of the outer senses.

This does not mean that you cannot move around in the world of the outer senses. You are inactive in it and ready to be a medium for the empty breath when you do not care about what and where you are, while you, for example, appear to be walking down a street or sitting in a park. In other words, no need to exclude anything by eating special food or sit in special postures in special surroundings to achieve a pure mind.

The empty breath is the foundation for glimpses of enlightenment, that is bound to merge into the enlightenment of that which is one, provided you do not keep swimming in the bliss induced by the glimpses of enlightenment, as to be blissful requires more than one.

Just like the empty breath is a foundation for the glimpses of enlightenment so is ´pretending to be someone definitive´ or ´to se symbols of life in the world´ or ´not being exclusive but inclusive´ so that apparent differences is not perceived to make a difference**. It does not matter which foundation you choose or if you alternate between them.

A perfect moment with glimpses of enlightenment is something you are aware of. If you stop being aware of it, you cannot see any glimpse. There is nothing and that is where the enlightenment of that which is one sets in. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Glimpses of enlightenment are something you are aware of. If you stop being aware of them or anything else, there is nothing to block out the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Where do glimpses of enlightenment come from
Physically speaking the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one seems to originate from a non-defined space behind the frequencies of thoughts behind the pineal gland. It is probably also from there, you perceive the world, when you are not exclusive but inclusive, so its apparent differences do not make a difference and it feels as every moment is the perfect moment**.

The same applies to pretend being a person or to perceive everything in the world as symbols of that which is one**. The empty breath – sounding like sohang – is presumably picked up from there as well physically speaking.

The pineal gland might work as a receiver for signals picked up by the eighth chakra, which has a magenta colour and is located above the head. Yet maybe neither the pineal gland or the eighth chakra have anything to do with the experiences glimpses of enlightenment. You cannot know, because experiencing them, you do not care – and not experiencing you do not know where to look.

In daily life, it might be best downplaying the visual glimpses of enlightenment, as you will have a hard time navigating the world of the outer senses while having visions of light. In most cases though, you can safely go with the glimpses of the other aspects of enlightenment, namely hearing, feeling or tasting it.

This is not a new religion or philosophy, that you must learn and strictly adhere to. On the contrary. It is about unlearning everything and going with the flow.

What is coffee. The answer will depend on the preferences of the one answering it and as we all have different preferences the same cup of coffee can be described in many different ways. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

What is coffee? The answer depends on the preferences of the one answering it, as well as the interpretation of the answer by the one getting it, so the same cup of coffee may turn out to be many different things. In other words, you will not get to know what coffee is from reading about it but from drinking it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Not knowing what and where you are, there is no more to unlearn
The enlightenment of that which is one and the glimpses of it are in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings described in a certain way, but elsewhere the same may be described in another way – just like two persons may describe the same cup of coffee in different ways.

So do not wait for the enlightenment of that which is one or the glimpses of it to be revealed exactly as described in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. In other words, you do not have to fit into the terminology of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Also: trying to extract a specific way to the enlightenment of that which is one or the glimpses of it from Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings will not help you. Better to forget all words about it and thrust the light, sound, feeling or taste of it to do their thing, when you partly or fully are willing to not be someone definitive.

That being said, there are practical instructions of how to experience glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one in the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment, which may help undoing the belief in being someone definitive and therefore be able to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

When there is nobody there, there is nobody to judge a dog to be different from a human. No appearance appears to do behave in a personal way, because nobody is observing them.

There is nothing to fear when there is nobody there
When none of your experiences is excluded but included, you cannot know what and where you are, because with nothing excluded there are no contrasts to define you as someone specific.

Inclusion seems dangerous when you want to survive as someone definitive, but if you do not mind being nobody, there is no need to fear what seems to be the disintegration of you, because there is no end to not being specific.

**) The other foundations for having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one apart from the empty breath can be read about in duality hack #1-3 plus #8. Hack #1: Pretending to be someone definitive mostly has a psychological perspective. In hack #2: Seeing symbols of life in the world the perspective is more metaphysical. And in hack #3: Not being exclusive but inclusive indifference is its foundation. In hack #8: Alone together the foundation is that there is no more than that which is one.

(+) Whatever that you are aware of is an illusion, because it requires more than one to be conscious of something (in the process of being updated)

A photo can give you a sense of a specific place or the people in it, but in no photo can you a sense of the empty breath, because it is not substantial. Besides only an ´I´ can sense something and in the connectedness with the empty breath, there is no ´I´, since it is a state of not-knowing. In other words, nothing has been connected and nothing needs to be connected, since that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there never was and never will be more than that which is one. Hence it is only as long as you believe, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, that connectedness with the empty breath seems relevant.** Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
As it requires more than one to experience something and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, everything experienced is an illusion.*

And though connecting with the empty breath may seem as if you finally have found something authentic, the experience of it is just as imaginary as any other experience, because it requires more than one to experience anything and there is no more than that which is one.

Yet this imagination of the empty breath, which is deeply rooted in an archetypical image of a never-ending rhythmic flow, slowly but surely undoes the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

The connectedness with the empty breath does not only undo the belief in being someone. It also makes sure that having this belief is unproblematic. Not in the sense that you are not troubled by anything, but in the sense that you are indifferent to it. Thus there is nothing to define you and therefore no ´I´ with a need to survive as someone specific.

A state of not-knowing, which is the result if the empty breath is also the outcome of all the other duality hacks (see the main ones in Duality Hacks and more in Extra Duality Hacks. If it the same state of not-knowing for all of them is not to know, as there is no consciousness of being there.

But as it takes more than one to be in any kind of state, it is just as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one. Hence the illusion of the duality hacks is only needed until there is no awareness of being someone who is somewhere.

If you feel confused by this article, do not try to get a grip on it*** but go with the chaos, until you cannot make ends meet into being someone definitive and feel as if you are about to explode, which in a sense also is what happens, when the build-up tensions ignite a take-off to the empty breath, since it is a state of not-knowing, so you are not bound up with what you believed to be any more.

See the articles Take-offs to ´the empty breath´Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ and What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? if you want to read more about igniting a take off to the empty breath.

Oneness is not something you open up to, because it requires more than one to open up to something. In other words, there is nobody is oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
Though Alexius lives on a Spanish-speaking island his Spanish is not very good, so he hardly understands a word when many people talk together. But neither does he understands, what they are talking about in his native country Denmark, despite knowing the supposed meaning of the Danish words. See Read more meaningless thoughts and words here.

Most prefer to think, they can steer the direction of their life, as it pleases them. It may also seem so, when looking at it in retrospect, but that is only so, because selected memories are compiled into an image of you as someone in control of its own life.

You are not directing your life, neither is a higher power or anybody else, because what is believed to be you is exactly that, namely make-believe.

Whether they talk about something so-called spiritual or mundane, it is always about emphasising themselves as someone unique who is and/or has more than others. It is not that Alexius does not have fun appearing to be someone definitive, but for him, it is not real – just like when playing a video game, no matter what he seems to be and do there, it is equally illusionary and just something he pretends to be real.****

Alexius has never felt the need to be approved as someone definitive through the acknowledgement, that comes from having an education, many friends, a soulmate or anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, as although he appears to be in such a world, he does not consider himself to be there – just like within the context of such a world, he does not believe to be in a game he is playing there, although he may have much fun pretending that he is.**** Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thus he never has had the need to be rich, famous, wise or powerful to prove he is somebody special. Nevertheless, in the eyes of the world, he has been very successful, as in his younger days he was often showcased in magazines and TV as someone special (see the physical intro to the enlightened non-teacher).

You cannot be in the lead, if you want to follow the empty breath. This, however, does not mean that you cannot be a leader in a world where there seems to be more than one, because a good leader knows how to follow.

But he cannot take the credit for this. Everything happened through the guidance of the empty breath. Not in the sense that it guided him to success – it sees no difference between success and failure – but in the sense that the empty breath, just like water, fills whatever hole it passes on its way. So if success seems to be what is beneficial for you on the journey without distance to that which is one, that is what you get. Read more about this here.

Success does not seem to be what writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is about, nor does it seems to be about getting or giving something. And even though he may write, that they point to that which is one, it is not really so, because it is not possible to point to oneness, since it takes more than one to do so.

Neither is there any point in pointing to it. You already are there. Where else can you be? There is nothing else than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

That is what Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are about, namely to expose that there is no more than that which is one and that you, therefore, are hallucinating when experiencing something.

That is the way he is guided to explain it. Yet it is not due to this logic, he is founded in the knowledge that there is no more than that which is one. It is because every time he steps aside***** to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, there is no more than that which is one. Not in the sense that he does not see anything else, but in the sense that he sees nothing at all, so there is not something to define him as someone and therefore nothing to hide, there never was and never will be more than that which is one.

+(+) The function of ´the empty breath´ is to not take the ego seriously (in the process of being updated)

The function of the empty breath is to undo the belief in being someone definitive, and since what you believe to be is the sum of your most defining memories and they are stored in the brain, its function is to wipe out every memory in the brain, so that there is nothing to confirm its construction of you as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space as real, wherefore there does not appear to be something hiding, there never was or will be more than the formlessness of that which is one. The animation is grabbed from the web.

»When you express yourself from your pure essence it comes back to you in bigger and unexpected ways«

This is a typical quote from the web posted by so-called spiritual people, who, though they consider themselves to be less egoistic than others, follow the egos craving for more and bigger.

Most so-called spiritual teachings promoted on the internet seem to be about growth and transformation from which you are supposed to get more love, more peace, more stillness or whatever you expect to turn you into someone, who is more spiritual than others and therefore part of something bigger.

You are also promised more energy and power from for example living in the now, which you are guaranteed to be in the future after mastering specific ways of self-control, that will make your body more strong and able to perform more in more years to come.

Since the reality of that which is you is the formlessness of oneness and formlessness is endless, it is not possible to be someone definitive. So if you believe to be someone at all, you are dreaming. Thus any solution in a dream is just a replacement of one illusion with another, so the only solution is to undo believe that you are there.

But whether you try to become more pure via eating more vegan or thinking more positive through exercising more self-control, you will not feel more fulfilled, because what you get is nothing but empty space in a new disguise. Thus the only thing, that really gets bigger is the hunger for more.

According to body psychology a person with the corners of its mouth turned downwards tends to be depressed. If that is so, it is obvious, Amma has a craving for happiness and needs to be loved by many people to feel delighted. When connected with ´the empty breath´ though, it does not matter if you feel depressed or happy, because it undoes the belief in being someone definitive, so that there is nobody to be happy or sad or anything else, which is very blissful. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»It is said that the lifespan of a butterfly is only a few days to a week. Yet how joyously it flies around! It spreads delight and happiness to everyone. Our lives should be like this«. This quote from Amma clearly shows, that most so-called spiritual people have the same wish as everybody else in a world where there seems to be more than one, namely to become more happy. Yet that is not something you can become in such a world, neither somewhere else, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and it takes more than one to be happy or be anything at all.

Spiritual growth is an idea of the ego, who wants you to always strive for being or having something better, as doing so confirms the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet that is not possible, because that which is you is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

If you do not feel validated as someone special unless there seems to be some kind of drama around you, you are not looking for peace but shit, as you feed from those you judge to be problematic.

From this follows that the ego – just like everything else in a world where there seems to be more than one – is nothing. And since nothing only can to be experienced as something, if divided into opposing parts that define each other as something, for example, light and darkness, you must always imagine being contrasted by something opposite to what you believe to be, in order to experience yourself as someone definitive.* So to feel that you are spiritual and good, you define yourself as not being the monstrous ego.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The ego needs you to believe, there is something bad in the world outside of you – television, society, the president or whatever – that is to be blamed for the way you feel, so it is something different from what you believe to be, that seems to have caused it, because in this way you are separated from something outside of you – and the ego thrives from separation.

That is unless you go with the indifference of the empty breath, because then the apparent difference between good and bad makes no difference, neither does the apparent difference between inside or outside. Thus there is no separation for the ego to thrive from.

Anything can be used to meet this purpose. The thoughts and feelings you choose to hang onto regarding a specific person, seem to prove your you are different that person and thus someone definitive. By imagining that these thoughts and feelings are caused by that person, you also seem to verify that there is more than one. That is unless you go with the indifference of the empty breath because then the apparent difference between inside and outside makes no difference.

As only shapes can be changed, nothing can be changed, because oneness is formless and therefore endless. In other words, if you thin you can change or be transformed, you have forgotten, that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one.

The function of the empty breath is to undo the belief, that there is more than that which is one
In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings you are not advised to exert self-control in order to be changed or transformed. Change is an illusion because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

This image posted on the internet is just one of many cries for more.

The ego seems to be quite successful in making everybody believe, that more is the solution to feeling lost. Yet nobody seem to realise that they never attain happiness from becoming and getting more, as more is never enough.

But this suits the ego fine, because as long as you are on a quest for more its life is insured. So it does not want you to see, that if you connect with the empty breath, there is no need for more, because the transparent bliss of nothing is more than enough..

Thus Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are solely about undoing the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than which is one. But this cannot be done by avoiding being and having more, stopping thoughts, surrendering to something higher or letting go of this and that, because doing so enhances the belief in being someone definitive.

A pencil cannot undo what it has written, but an eraser can undo what the pencil has written. Likewise you cannot undo what you appear to be, but the empty breath can.

The empty breath, however, slowly but surely disconnect you from the experiences fabricated by the brain of a world where there seems to be more than one, so that there is not something to define you as someone definitive and thus nobody to believe, it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of oneness.

As the empty breath is indifferent to the apparent differences in the world, you will avoid it, if you insist on what you believe to be is different from what you think not to be. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

APPENDIX:
In case you are looking for a sensational feeling of being alive, living a longer physical life, being more fit or transformed to a higher consciousness, the empty breath is not for you, because it is not offering anything but the bliss of nothing (see Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´).

It is not possible to profit of reality, as it is that which is one and it takes more than one to profit of something. Consequently it is only possible to profit of illusions, wherefore that is what those requiring money for their so-called spiritual teachings are doing.

This is not to say, that it is bad to profit of something, but that doing so is a product of the belief, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Hence the more you profit of something, the more this belief is enhanced and thus the suffering it entails.

But if you want to use the bliss of nothing to inflate your image, you must disconnect yourself from the empty breath, so its flow of indifference does not prevent you from showing off as more free, real, unique, genuine, authentic and/or compelling than others.

Maybe Deepak Chopra – like many other performers – is enchanted by the attention from the listeners, and therefore feels as if he is part of something bigger. This, of course, is pure speculation, but that his teachings about perfect health has made his net worth bigger is a fact. It is more than $80 million. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Click here to see pseudo spiritual phrases generated from a list of words found in Deepak Chopra´s Twitter stream and randomly added together in sentences, that just like the jargon in his and many other new agers books and speeches are hocus pocus fabricated to lure you into believing, they have something special that you need.

These charlatans do not want you to know, that believing to be someone definitive is an illusion, because that makes it impossible for them to sell solutions for how you can become more free, real, unique, genuine, authentic and powerful.

The above listing of what spiritual wannabes wish to be is compiled from an announcement for a new age course, where the participants were promisedthey would become all that and as a result feel more self-assured. When connected with the empty breath, however, there is no need for self-assurance, because it is indifferent to the concept of being a self or anything else.

+(+) The nature of ´the empty breath´ (in the process of being updated)

9bb611dd-80cb-464c-9536-4b7284e9e1b5

The empty breath is your best friend. This may not always be your experience though, because it is of no help in regards to the appearance of your body, neither the world that appears to be around you. Yet it helps you to see everything through its eyes of indifference so you will feel good no matter the condition of your appearance and its apparent surroundings. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Metaphorically speaking the empty breath is a life jacket, you got from that which is one when you left it to search for more than one. Well, it is not actually possible to leave it, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Yet it seems possible imagining to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

When connected with the empty breath, what you seem to receive from the world is always the same, because you receive what you give and you give what you have, namely the indifference of the empty breath.

This life jacket – the empty breath – loves you unconditionally. Thus it is not bothered by how you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. It does not even see the world you believe to see, neither what you believe to be, because that is a fantasy made from out of nothing – and as the empty breath is nothing as well, it sees nothing but what you and the world are made from.

To see nothing is to love that which is you unconditionally. Thus the empty breath does not need your love. But as long as you believe to be someone definitive, you need to love it to feel unconditionally loved.

Feeling the connectedness with the empty breath, you probably forget to check the lottery. And when you finally remember, you smile regardless you won or not, because when you are in the flow of the empty breath, you become indifferent to a world where there seems to be more than one and its apparent expectations of you becoming and getting more.

When you are connected with the inner breath, you probably forget to check, if you did win a prize in lottery, and when you remember to check it, you smile whether you did win or not, because being connected with the inner breath, you always feel like a winner. But overriding* its guidance, you mostly feel like a loser. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath does not know how to heal your hay fever or anything else caused by the belief in being someone definitive. But it knows how to heal this belief. And due to the relaxation, that comes from the process of having it healed, you may intuitively explore new ways bringing about the healing of your hay fever as well. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath does not heal the body, but the belief that you are in it
The guidance of the empty breath is not about how to achieve more health, money, success, love or something else, but how to see what you appear to be and have is nothing.

Being connected with the empty breath, every experience of something is perceived to be nothing. This does not mean though, that you do nothing about a broken leg, for example. But as the leg is perceived to be nothing, and so is what you do about it, you do not worry if something will be accomplished. Thus doing something about it becomes effortless.

To be loved is a need that comes from belief in separation. But as you do not perceive differences to make a difference, when relying on the indifference of the empty breath, being loved or not does not make a difference. 

If you want to uphold your appearance as someone tangible, although this appearance is 99% empty space and 1% energy according to science, my non teachings about the inner breath is not for you. It is not helping you become better or transform anything, but to undo the belief in being someone definitive. The animation is grabbed from the web.

If you want to uphold your appearance as someone tangible, although this appearance is nothing but empty space according to science, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings about the empty breath is not for you. They will not help you to become better or transform you into someone who is part of something bigger. On the contrary, they will undo the belief that it is possible to be someone at all so that there is not someone definitive appearing to hide the formlessness of that which is you. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath is not changing or transforming anything. Such concepts are based on the perception of separation, which is unknown to the empty breath. It knows of nothing but indifference to the apparent different appearances in the world where you believe to be, as it does not see something but nothing there.

Those advocating ´living in the now´ try to replicate the traits of the empty breath. But not by being indifferent to the world of separation fabricated by the brain, but by enhancing the belief in separation through the exclusion of the past and the future, so they can experience something they believe to be now, although all experience is a fabrication of the past executed by the brain. See Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

The indifference of the empty breath results in all being the same – not in the sense though that positive and negative, for example, is experienced to be the same, but that their apparent difference makes no difference. Thus it makes no difference, whether you think positive or negative, feel cherished or rejected, try to make the world better or not, search for a higher consciousness or not, are living in the now or whatnot.

When connected with the empty breath you cannot perceive yourself as someone definitive. That is why there is nobody to help or attack you.

This detachment, however, that is a natural trait of the empty breath, cannot be replicated by being an observer or anything else as that implies you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, and detachment is indifferent to this or any other belief.

The function of the empty breath is not to improve your apparent condition or the conditions experienced to surround you, as that is just a replacement of one illusion with another. Its function is to facilitate the undoing of the belief, that there is more than that which is one, so this belief does not appear to hide there is no more than that which is one.

To transform or in any other way change what what you appear to makes no difference because all appearances are nothing but a construction of thoughts. Therefore my non teachings are not concerned about what you think or how much you think, but that you belief that you are thinking. When that belief is undone, thoughts do not seem to have any power anymore.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not concerned with what you appear to think or how much you seem to think, but that you believe to be thinking. When this belief is undone, thoughts do not seem to have the power to manifest neither enjoyable or horrible things. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To connect with the empty breath, you do not need to stop anything but the belief that there is anything
You may have noticed, that in the articles about the empty breath you are not promised to be transformed, transcended or in any other way be changed. This is because changing or transforming something in a world where there seems to be more than one is just a replacement of one illusion with another.

This can be compared to the world on a computer screen. No matter how it is changed, everything is the same, because there is nothing on the screen. Everything is on a hard disk and yet there is nothing there but zeros and ones. It is not before the zeros and ones have been processed by an app into what appears to be on the screen, that the nothingness of the hard disk seems to be a tangible world, where it seems changes can be made.

Thus the empty breath, which in this context just like what and where you believe to be is unprocessed zeros and ones, has no interest in stopping anything on the screen or to make you think more positive about it. Whatever is on the display or what you think about it makes no difference.*

If something seems to trouble you, use the frustration to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, so that whatever you think or feel does not appear to make a difference. See Take-offs to ´the empty breath´.

So nothing needs to be changed, and thoughts need not be stopped. The only problem is the belief, that what you are conscious about is real. And that is the concern of the empty breath, namely to undo the belief in you being someone with a consciousness. See also Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

The inner breath has nothing to do with what you eat, how you dress or if walk or sit. Neither has it anything to do with meditation but to being a medium of it. In other words, it is given to you when you are not be someone specific but nobody.

Connecting with the empty breath has nothing to do with what you eat, how you dress or what you think. Neither has it anything to do with meditation except in the sense of being a medium, which you are when willing not to be special but be a servant of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Taking deep breaths or in any other way manipulating the breath is not beneficial in regards to connecting with the empty breath, because doing so enhances the belief in being someone definitive.

The same applies to being centred, balanced, focused or being anything else, as it is the willingness to not be anything at all, that ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

This willingness, however, does not come from forcing the body into special yoga postures, neither by controlling the mind, but by thrusting its uncontrolled flow to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, regardless you walk, sit, talk and whatnot. See Take-offs to ´the empty breath´.

To make long short, the empty breath does not know, that you assign special meaning to the emptiness of thoughts so that they appear to manifest you as someone definitive in a tangible world that is experienced to be made of physical elements instead of emptiness.

Being connected with the empty breath you are indifferent to the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one – just like you are indifferent to the experienced differences in the world of a movie or a video game, as you know it is all make-believe.

All that the empty breath knows is that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. Thus all that it wants is to breathe nothing but emptiness into what you believe to be, so that there does not seem to be someone hiding there never was or will be more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.


*) This should not be understood, as you should not consult a qualified health care professional in order to change your bodily condition to the better, as long as you appear to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.


Being indifferent does not mean that you do not feel happy or sad. The apparent difference just does not make a difference. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Being indifferent does not mean, that there are no feelings. There may appear to be many feelings, for example, happiness and sadness. Yet the apparent difference between them does not make a difference when applying one or more of the duality hacks. The animation is grabbed from the web.

NOTE ABOUT INDIFFERENCE:
Being indifferent does not mean, that you do not feel the apparent difference between for example love and hate, but because there is no need to be acknowledged as someone definitive when connected with the empty breath, you do not consider one of them to be better than the other. In other words, it makes no difference two you which feeling you explore.

This indifference is also ignited by pretending to be someone definitive instead of believing to be it, and from perceiving everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one, because when every appearance is a symbol of the same, the apparent differences in the world makes no difference.

SX +(++) ´The empty breath´ sets the body free (in the process of being updated)

The clothes, that a body is wearing, has nothing to do with it, neither with that which is you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If the body seems to get better, when you feel connected with the empty breath, it is not because of the empty breath – at least not directly – because it does not know of something that needs improvement. Indirectly though it is due to the empty breath, as in its presence you are not in the default mode of doing something about something, so the body is not disturbed by you trying to connect it with non-physical like the mind, crystal energies and whatnot.

To imagine that the body is connected with the mind* or something spiritual is like thinking there is a connection between the body and a coat, it is wearing. Though the coat seems to go where the body goes, there is no communication.

This is like assuming there is a connection between you and the world in a movie you are watching. This connection is entirely imaginative. The world in the movie is unaffected by the thoughts or feelings you appear to have about it, neither does it have the power to cause them, unless you imagine that it has.

Metaphorically speaking we have disconnected the body from its source, and as we mistake that for the mind or the soul, we try to fix the problem by connecting the body with the mind and/or soul. The physical elements of the body though do not mix with mental or spiritual concepts.

Thus the attempt to do this results in so-called psychosomatic disorders and frustrated thoughts and feelings about how to heal them. Unfortunately, this disturbance is perceived as proof of such a connection instead of a warning against it.

The belief in a body-mind connection is a confusion of levels* – just like if you feel your body is connected with somebody you are chatting with on the phone. Though there may be a connection of minds, there is no connection of bodies.

Fortunately, the empty breath is indifferent to whatever you seem to think or feel, and so are you when connected with it. This does not mean it heals the body, but that it liberates it from the sick ideas you have forced upon it so that it is straightforward for a qualified health care professional to bring order in its biological system. More about this here.

+(++) The bliss of nothing (in the process of being updated)

Though the empty breath has no need to be remembered by you, doing so is beneficial for your wellbeing as someone definitive, as well as the undoing of the belief in being that.

It is not easy to explain about the transparent flow of bliss, that the empty breath entails, because it comes from the absence of the conscious experience of you as someone at all.

Most hang onto the awareness of being somebody special and try to enhance it by getting something extraordinary. But as that confirms the belief in separation, it seems to result in an essential sorrow, regardless what you appear to achieve.

But you cannot remember it for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, in a row, if you want to continue the experience of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Read more about this here. Thus a great way of almost always remembering it is to quickly change between the state of the conscious experience of you as someone definitive and the state of not-knowing, that it entails.

This can be done by following the rhythm of the breath so that when it expands the body you are in the conscious experience of being someone definitive, and in a state of not-knowing when it is contracting the body.

Thus the slate is wiped clean with each contraction of the body, provided you do not try to keep something thereby blaming others for what you appear to be, as that holds back a state of not-knowing. Click here for a more detailed explanation of how to quickly go back and forth between the conscious experience of being someone definitive and a state of not-knowing.

Returning to that which is one is not a matter of going anywhere, as oneness is formless and therefore endless, so it has never been left. Yet it seems possible to believe so. Fortunately, the connection with the empty breath undoes this belief. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This is not a matter of letting go or surrender, as doing so enhances the belief in being someone definitive. And so does try to figure out, if it would be better to follow the rhythm of the breath the other way around. As long as you are not in charge but follow the flow, it really makes no difference, which way you experience it to go.

What you believe to be is gently falling apart, when rapidly going back and forth between the awareness of being someone definitive and a state of not-knowing, because in a state of not-knowing all definitions are cancelled.

As long as you go with the flow of knowing and not-knowing, you are slowly but surely having the belief in being someone undone. No need to worry about how much time it takes.

Time is an illusion and every experience is bound to end, when you continue in this flow, as in its presence the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one do not appear to make a difference, wherefore they one by one is cancelled out.

´The empty breath´ cancels out the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one. This does not mean that they are not perceived, but that they are not judged to make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When every so often being connected with the empty breath, nothing remains a problem, because the differences, that appear to have caused it, are cancelled out the very moment you return to the empty breath, wherefore they are of no use for the brain in defining you or others as somebody definitive.

That is, if you do not prevent the empty breath from cancelling out differences and insist that some of them matters, for example the apparent difference between a friendship and a romantic relationship, so you start arguing with yourself or others about right and wrong.

But that is not a problem, if the frustration, this seems to cause, is used as a take-off to ´the empty breath´.

In short, the rapid on and off connection with the empty breath will sooner or later end all experiences, also that of the empty breath, so there is nothing to hide that which cannot be experienced, as it takes more than one to experience something, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one, does there appear to be levels, so if you are experiencing to be advancing through levels, the belief that there is more than that which is not being undone but enhanced.

Oneness cannot be revealed, but what hides it can. This does not happen though by wanting to be at one or waiting for it to be realised, as that requires more than one.

Yet it can be realised, what it is not, namely to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Thus Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not about realising the formlessness of oneness, but that it is a mistake to believe, that you are someone definitive, and that this mistake is corrected by using one or more of the duality hacks, for example the empty breath, as in its flow of nothingness, there is not something to hide, there never was or will be more than that which is one.

Since realising something only is possible in a world where there seems to be more than one and since it is a world of linear time, this realisation is a process in time.

Nothing can be done to speed up the process of undoing the belief in being someone definitive, as that enhances the belief in being someone definitive. Besides, it is not a process, as the moment you are willing to have it undone, it is undone.

Yet this may seem to occur in the future, because in a world of linear time, everything appears to take time – just like it takes time for the rays of the sun to reach the Earth.

The willingness to realise, that the belief in being someone definitive is a mistake is most often initiated by admitting, you are not willing to realise this, because by acknowledging that, you are agreeing to be someone definitive is make-believe and therefore not that which is you.*

If not suppressing thoughts and feelings by trying to organise them into something that seems to make sense, the uncontrolled energy of them will ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

When breathing in you follow thoughts and/or feelings – without excluding any of them – all the way to the top of the head. There the gentle explosion of their restlessness clear up everything and leaves nothing but the bliss of indifference to the apparent differences in the world and thus to you being someone definitive there.

Following the breath down to the abdomen, you are therefore in a state of not-knowing. You remain there by continually going up and down with the breath, and you leave it as soon as an appearance seems to make a difference.

This should not be understood as a state of not-knowing is in the flow of the physical breath – just like the music you turn on by hitting a button is not there. A state of not-knowing is nowhere in specific and therefore obscured by the experiences of time and space, that seems to confirm you as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space.

Following the rhythm of the breath as described above or in the other articles about it (see the next box) fascinate the brain, so it forgets to continually produce a conscious experience of you as someone definitive separated from others by time and space. As this is the primary purpose of following the breath, it is not essential to follow it in the exact same the way you interpret that it should be done according to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

Check out the below articles about how to ignite a take-off to the empty breath

If you think you will find something better around the next corner, you will probably not notice the empty breath, because it is not behind anything but before everything. It is the frequencies of nothingness hitting the senses, that the brain uses to fabricate an image of you as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you look for something, you will not notice the empty breath
Although being in the bliss of the empty breath, therefore, is very simple and straightforward, it may seem complicated if you are conditioned with the ideas of controlling and/or stopping thoughts because controlling or stopping anything is not possible in a state of not-knowing.

Neither is controlling and/or stopping thoughts beneficial for getting into a state of not-knowing. On the contrary. It is when you do not try to stop them, that they are free to speed up until the explosion of their restless energy ignites a take-off to the empty breath, and thus to a state of not-knowing, where there by the way still may appear to be thoughts. Yet there is nobody to care about them. That is why a state of not-knowing is so blissful.

Nor can you obtain a state of not-knowing through and concentration, because it is nowhere to be achieved. Yet being defocused, you do not need to, as without focus there is no experience of you as someone in a world defined by time and space. Hence there is not something appearing to hide, that the nothingness of you is no different from the empty breath.

The apparent difference between a boy or a girl, for example, must be upheld as real to sustain the belief, that you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. This appearance remains precisely the same when connected with the empty breath, but due to its indifference, your appearance is not judged to differ from other appearances. Thus the belief in being someone definitive is not upheld. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The flow of the empty breath is flexible
As a result of being defocused, you may forget the above description of how to go up and down with the rhythm of the breathing and end up going the other way around. Your distance of going up and down may also be diminished or enlarged, so when going up you pass the top of your head and going down you go below the abdomen. No worries. There is nobody to judge the apparent difference to make a difference.

Going up and down is very much like going with the swing of the empty breath or surfing the empty breath in a circular motion (see the paragraphs of the same names in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?).

The brain will try to process a state of not-knowing into some kind of consciousness, that makes you appear to be very special, and if that seems flattering, you will probably be one more wandering off into a lot of nonsense about coming from your pure essence, heart and whatnot, which all confirm the image that the brain has fabricated of you as someone definitive and thus further obscure that which is you, namely the formlessness of oneness.

But whatever way you follow the flow of the empty breath you cannot stop at anything specific, neither the heart, although the brain likes you to feel that something special is coming from there*, so you do not realise, that every experience – including what is experienced to come from the heart – is a fabrication done by the brain from out of nothing.**

Do not worry if the above seems a bit complicated to you. You do not have to remember it. Just connect with the empty breath and go with the flow as it comes to you. Having done that a few times, you automatically return to the empty breath, when preferring to see the emptiness in grievances.

Check out the below articles to recognise, that if grievances are acknowledged they are no different from the emptiness of bliss:

When not perceiving the contrast of up and down to make a difference, the world is not experienced to make sense and thus not to hide that both the senses and what they seem to pick up are nothing but empty space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The flow of going up and down
Instead of remaining in a state of not-knowing after going down to the abdomen when the breath contracts the body, you can return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, when you leave the abdomen and with the expansion of the body return to the head.

Though your connection with the empty breath in this way is very short, the gentle explosion of the leftover thoughts and feelings from last time you were in the consciousness of being someone definitive, can be used to ignite a new take-off to the empty breath, so when the body contracts you follow the flow down to the abdomen and return to a state of not-knowing until you follow the flow up to the conscious experience of you as someone definitive – and so on.

In this way, you still appear to be someone who is conscious of itself but does not know what it means. In other words, you are in the world but not of it.

When not in the connectedness with the empty breath, grudges and so-called negative thoughts keep popping up as before. But as the indifference of the empty breath is sticky, the apparent difference between grudges and forgiveness or positive and negative thoughts does not appear to make a difference.

Do not try to figure out, when you are in and out of the empty breath, but enjoy the flow of going up and down. And do not spend time on caring about, who it is that is following the breath and when the contrast of going up and down completely cancels out itself and therefore also the experience of the world where you believe to be someone definitive, because when that occurs, there is nobody left to have an experience of time or anything else.

As time is an illusion, this has already happened or rather never happened, because it is not possible to be and have more than that which is one. But while you believe it is, enjoy the flow of going up and down slowly but surely undoing this belief

As reality is that which is one and as it takes more than one to go anywhere, it has nothing to say except I am here. But if you believe, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, here does not seem to be enough. Yet it makes no difference, as there is no more than here because oneness is formless and therefore everywhere. That is also why that which is here cannot be known. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No more than that which is one
Should you forget to follow the flow and thus forget about the empty breath, there is no reason to punish yourself, because there is no self to punish. It takes more than one to be or have a self, and as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, any kind of self is make-believe. For the same reason remembering the empty breath is also make-believe*****

Nevertheless remembering the empty breath makes it easier not to believe, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one – and as that means there is no more to pursuit, you are in the bliss of emptiness. But as it also requires more than one to be in this bliss, it is of course also an illusion.

Yet if you stay in this illusion for 20 minutes, 45 at most******, the brain falls into a coma and therefore unable to register anything. Thus there is not something that seems to hide, there never was and never will be more than that which is one.

SX The most exciting aspect of ´the empty breath´, namely indifference, is not exciting but liberating (in the process of being updated)

The empty breath can be felt in many exciting ways, but its most exciting way is actually not exciting, because you hardly feel it, as due to the indifference of the empty breath the apparent differences of the world is not perceived to make a difference, and so the foundation for separation is gone. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath can be felt in many exciting ways. The most exciting way though cannot be felt, because it is not a feeling, but indifference to the apparent differences experienced in a world defined by time and space and thus to the foundation of feeling anything, namely separation. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Physically speaking the empty breath is best felt when the air is coming in and out through the nose. Yet not as if it is you who do the breathing, but as if it is an ´engine´ inside the body that first expands the abdomen, secondly the belly and lastly the chest. Then a short break before it goes the other way around in order to contract the body. And on and on. It feels like there is hardly any air coming in and out of the nose but that the breath remains within the body all the time.

Please be aware, that this is not a factual description of how breathing is carried out when the empty breath is in the driving seat, but a description of how it feels. It is not something you should try to replicate by doing deep breaths and whatnot. In fact, it has nothing to do with you taking a deep breath, as the whole concept of the empty breath is that you do nothing.

Doing Nordic Walking – or rather following the flow of it – may help you in being able not to do something. It may also help you to expose the defence mechanisms, that you have built up in the body against going with the flow of the empty breath.

It is probably not the connection itself with  a Fitbit watch, for example, that excites you, but how it motivates you to exercise and consequently feel more comfortable inside a body. Likewise it is not necessarily the connection with the empty breath that makes you feel good, but that its indifference undoes the belief, it is possible to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. Thus there is nobody to be bothered about the problems that seem to arise from appearing to be someone there. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

When you are connected with a Fitbit watch for example, you do not get an exceptional feeling from the connection itself, but rather from the data you are receiving. Likewise you probably do not feel excited, when you are connected with the empty breath, as its radiance of indifference makes you indifferent to the apparent differences in a world defined by time and space. But as this makes it impossible established separation to be real, there does not seem to be anybody feeling anything, which is pure bliss.

Yet it is not important to undo all these defence mechanisms. Having the willingness to do so is enough to feel the connection with the empty breath.* Neither is it important in which of the ways described in the previous article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? that you feel it, or if it is felt in another way.

Though these ways of feeling the empty breath definitely are very exciting, the most exciting way to feel it – or rather not feeling it – is simply to follow its consistent flow of indifference. Since that makes you indifferent to the apparent differences in the world where you appear to be, there does not seem to be anybody feeling anything but the bliss from being indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive.


*) See the part The only requirement is willingness in the article INTRO TO HACK #4.4, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone and Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

SX +(++) ´The empty breath´ undoes all conditioning (in the process of being updated)

There are established ways of feeling somebody else when you believe to be someone substantial in a tangible world. But there are no ways to contact the empty breath than to momentarily stop believing that you are someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since the empty breath has no personality, it has no power of its own, so if its rhythmic flow is experienced to be weaker when you appear to be sick or about to die, it is because it the rhythm is synchronised with what you believe to be. Yet the operator of the empty breath (see the paragraph of the same name in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?), which is the non-rhythmic energy behind the rhythm of the empty breath remains the same and is also experienced like that if that aspect you choose to connect with.

So if the transparent non-rhythmic energy of the empty breath is only partially experienced, when the mind or your biological system seems to be out-of-order, the problem is not the empty breath, but that you do not want to experience it fully, when there seem to be problems with your condition, because that would render it unimportant and thus question your belief in being someone definitive.

The less you believe to be substantial, the more you will feel the non-rhythmic transparency of the empty breath.

This does not mean, that you should not take care of the body and the mind, as long as they appear to be there, and consult a qualified health care professional to deal with potential problems – just like you bring your car to a garage for a check-up, even though it is not you.

When you do not know anything, there is not somebody to be sad, neither happy –nor to be anybody or anywhere specific. Thus there is nothing but emptiness, and that is pure bliss.

The achievement of something in a substantial world requires much effort, but as the empty breath is not substantial, no effort is needed to achieve it. In fact, you miss it, if you are doing something to achieve it.

There is no help to get if you do not feel the transparent bliss of the empty breath, as it is a result of your own choice in believing to be someone substantial. Yet this choice is automatically changed, when everything you know is unlearned, so read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings until nobody is reading it.

As everything you have you have learned enforces the belief, that you are someone definitive – whether that is experienced to be in a so-called spiritual or physical body – you need to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and apply their duality hacks again and again to unlearn everything you have learned, so that is not automatically an awareness of something, as that enhances the belief in being someone.

Not being conscious of something, there is nothing to make better. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not being conscious of something, neither the empty breath, there is nothing to make perfect. Consequently, you are not benumbed in an experience of yourself as someone definitive but in the flow of nothingness.

This does not necessarily mean, that there are no feelings of sorrow or joy passing by, but that the apparent difference does not make a difference. Yet you should not go with the flow of the empty breath while driving a car, for example, where you need to be conscious about all the apparent differences in the traffic so you can follow your conditioned response to these differences. Read more about conditioned responses here.

The empty breath undoes your conditioned belief in being someone definitive, because it sets in before there is a conscious recognition of someone at all. Read more about it here.

But while brushing your teeth, doing the dishes, taking a walk in the park or something else, that does not crave a lot of attention, you can follow the flow of the empty breath, and thus bypass your conditioning, so it does not stop you from discovering new ways of taking care of the body and the life you seem to have inside it.

Hence the appearance of you as someone definitive does not seem to drag you down but to enhance the connection with the empty breath, and thus support you in having the belief in being someone definitive undone.

NOTE: This article is a nota bene to What is ´the empty breath´ about?. Both articles are part of hack #4.4, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

+(+++) What is ´the empty breath´ about? (in the process of being updated)

Everything fabricated – like for example this illustration of a yin-yang sign – is supposed to have a special appearance, so that the experience of it supplies the belief, that you are somebody special. But this is not the purpose of the empty breath. On the contrary. Its purpose is to undo the belief, that you are someone at all, which it does by helping you see, that the apparent differences in the world do not make a difference, so it does not matter whether anything appears perfect or not. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you want to occur as if you are somebody important in the low-frequency world of the outer senses you must appear to be perfect. But as there is nothing important to be in the high-frequency world of the inner senses, no perfection is needed there – neither to feel the empty breath. All that is needed to feel it, while appearing to be in the world of the outer senses, is that you have no intention of making a difference.

When people tell you to slow down and relax via mindfulness and whatnot, they take away your only way to be laid-back, because that comes from speeding up thoughts and feelings until you feel so confused, that you stop trying to control them and therefore no longer are preventing them from igniting a take off to ´the empty breath´, that synchronise the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high frequency world of the inner senses, so that speedy thoughts and feelings are not felt to cause stress but tranquility.

Whatever seems to disturb you in the low-frequency world of the outer senses will not seem stressful, when the empty breath synchs it with the high-frequency world of the inner senses. Thus you slowly but surely become indifferent to your interpretation of right and wrong.

The animation is grabbed from the web.

Once connected with the empty breath – even just for a split second – what you believe to be is undone and the nothingness of you is included in its nothingness, so no matter if you remember it or whatever you seem to think, feel or do, it remains with you. In other words, forgetting the empty breath does not change anything, except that you do not feel the transparent bliss of its indifference until you again ignite a take-off to it.

At times you may feel so angry, that you do not want to be guided by the empty breath, because you know it will make you indifferent to those you blame for having caused the anger, so you actively override its flow* in order to make sure, that they will be punished.

But since we receive what we give, it is you who suffers from the punishment (read more about that here). That is until you have had enough of manipulating the world into what you judge to be right and instead use your frustrations of what seems to be wrong to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´.

The empty breath is not the giver of joy and happiness but indifference
The nature of the empty breath is not happiness but indifference, and as this releases you from the boundaries of a world defined by time and space, it may feel as if you are in a merry-go-round world.

The empty breath is indifferent to differences, so if you do not fence it off by trying to exclude what you judge as negative in order to appear as if you are only positive, whatever you seem to feel will be interpreted by the indifference of the empty breath. Consequently feeling happy or sad is the same. Not in the sense that happiness and sadness feels the same, but in the sense that the apparent difference makes no difference.

But feelings never last, so if you hang onto pleasant feelings instead of going with the flow of being indifferent to feelings, your merry-go-round world will be replaced by its contrast, which is sadness But this is only so, because you mistook the empty breath for the giver of happiness instead of indifference, so if you stick with the latter, it makes no difference if you feel happy or sad, which is very blissful.

The swing of the inner breath may be experienced abruptly – like in this animation but probably a lot slower – in a s body with muscles problems from for example psoas or diafragma. There is no reason though trying to make it swing more smoothly by improving the condition of the body. The inner breath always adjust itself to the current condition of the body, so no matter how it moves it results in the same joy, providing you are not looking to be perfect.

In a sick body, the swing of the empty breath may be experienced to come in bursts – a bit like in this animation but probably slower. But no matter how restricted the swing of it is experienced, the connection with it will always entail indifference, so if you stick with that the way it is experienced makes no difference. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Reasons for not feeling the empty breath
Not feeling the swing of the empty breath may be due to trying too much, focussing on it, or assuming the experience of it will make you feel something special. In these cases you are trying to fabricate a specific feeling yourself, wherefore forever changing connectedness with the empty breath cannot be sensed.

The same applies, if you try to override it* by taking a deep breath, shortening, pushing or holding back your breath every now and then, so there is time enough to make plans by yourself, and thus be established as an autonomous creature with a will of its own.

Basically there is only one reason for not feeling the empty breath, namely that you want to feel it, which is only possible because you believe to be something and not just nothing like the empty breath. In other words, to feel the empty breath you must step aside

The connectedness with the empty breath – either through its transparent sound, the swing of it, surfing its waves, or the sparkling force behind these rhythmic movements – is not a feeling that can be fabricated like for example a romantic evening generated by candles, special clothes, music and red wine. On the contrary. It is felt, when instead of busy trying to produce a specific feeling, the hectic energy is used as a take-off to the empty breath.

Following the guidance of the empty breath you are automatically multitasking, because it does not know the concept of focusing on something specific. So if you not feeling the empty breath multitasking will connect you with it.

Please do not take the comparison of the inner breath to an yin yang sign too literally. An yin yang sign is all too simplified to really illustrate the inner breath.Yet it might give you an idea about the inner breath, which can also be compared to a spiral like the galaxy in this image, that the stylish yin yang sign might a simplified version of.

Please do not take the comparison of the empty breath to a yin-yang sign too literal. A yin-yang sign is all too simplified to really illustrate the empty breath, which rather is to be compared to the galaxy in this image. Maybe the yin-yang sign originally was a simplified illustration of such a galaxy. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath never feels the same
Even though the empty breath seems to produce a constant rhythm of expansion and contraction in the body, your experience of it may not be that of consistency. And you are right. It is not consistent, and it has no such need. Only those who believe to be somebody definitive has a need to be consistent, and as the empty breath does not believe to be anything at all, it does not need to uphold a consistent image of itself.

The empty breath can be compared to the cats in the home of Alexius. They go around as it pleases them, but he can always count on them to greet him when he gives them a call.

Feeling the empty breath is like receiving a new gift every moment. There is no way, however, to know what the gift is before receiving it, neither do you need to know, because you are in a state of not-knowing.

The energy at the root of the inner breath may be experienced a bit like this, but in less defined forms and colors.

The energy at the root of the empty breath may be experienced a bit like this, but in less defined forms and without any awareness of colours. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Likewise, he can always count on the empty breath, and even though it only moves on its own accord, it is always to be felt in one way or the other. Maybe he experiences to be going up and down on a single wave several times in a row, where after he may feel the swing of it inside of his head, and then continue to surf of both of the yin-yang looking waves.

After igniting a take-off to the empty breath, he mostly lands in its very fast and chaotic energy at the root of it, which feels like freedom compared to the rigid world of the outer senses. Going to bed it may be the transparency of its sound that comes to him. But first of all he simply feels the indifference of the empty breath, and since that means the apparent differences in the world does not appear to make a difference, it is hardly a feeling.

Using other duality hacks to get to the indifference of the empty breath
As any other Duality Hack except the enlightenment of that which is one induces a state of not-knowing, you can use one or more of the those, if you have problems connecting with the empty breath.

No matter which of them or how many you apply, you will end up in a state of not-knowing, which always is the same in the sense that it entails an indifference to the belief in being someone definitive, wherefore there is nobody to experience nothing as if it is something, so you are in the transparent bliss of nothing.

+(+) What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? (in the process of being updated)

The inner breath is not restricted to be felt as a specific form, neither to only be felt inside. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As the empty breath is not something definitive, it cannot be felt in a specific way. Yet it can be felt in an undefinable way anywhere within its non-definitive framework – whether that appears to be inside or outside the body – but never consistently as the same, although it is constantly there.

The empty breath can be felt in many different ways within its non-definable framework of a ball like thingy, that passes through the head – or above it – and the stomach or below it. Yet it is not experienced in relation to the body and what seems to be inside or outside of it, because the empty breath does not of anything definitive.

This is not because the empty breath experiences everything in a world where there seems to be more than one to be spiritual, but that nothing is experienced to be there since experiences is a hallucination made from out of nothing. Read more about that here.

Having an out-of-body experience is based on the belief that you are someone in a body, which is the opposite of the experience that comes from the connectedness with the empty breath, as it undoes the belief that you are someone definitive. See also the article Believing to be in or outside the body is equally insane.

Thus the connectedness with the empty breath is not an out-of-body experience, but a no-body experience. This does not mean, however, that you do not take care of the body, your beloved ones and whatnot when connected with the empty breath, but that it makes no difference if doing so seems to pay off or not.

In the connectedness with the empty breath there is nothing that appears to be disturbing, but trying to connect with it everything seems disturbing, because the purpose of trying is delaying, so you want to be disturbed.

The inner breath has no definitive center or anything else in a fixed position, so your experience of it may be different from mine. Maybe you primarily experience it in the stomach, in the chest or both inside and outside of your body within the non definitive borders of a ball. It may change from moment to moment, as  – unlike this image – it is not static. This image however illustrates when all its movements are experienced simultaneously, which feels as if the everything stands still.

The empty breath has no definitive centre or border or anything else that is in a fixed position. Everything is always moving, so the experience of it changes from moment to moment from as if it is in the stomach, in the chest or both inside and outside the body. So if your experience differs from the descriptions in this article, go with the flow as it comes to you.

Feelings are subjective
If you are very future-minded, the empty breath may be felt as coming from somewhere in front of you, whereas being minded about the past it may be felt to come from the back. And if you are into the concepts of living in the now, being centred and balanced, it may be felt as it has a fixed centre. In other words, the experience of it is coloured by own your conditioning.

This is not a problem for the empty breath, because contrary to you it has no need to be acknowledged in a specific way. So whether you experience it in the stomach, the chest, inside or outside of the body it carries out its one and only purpose, namely to make you indifferent to the apparent different experiences in the world where you believe to be.

As the empty breath is not static, the experience of it may change from moment to moment, and you may experience it in other ways than described in this article.

No worries. Feeling the empty breath is not about approaching it in the right way, but going with the flow. It is only in the world of the outer senses, you must do the right thing so you can feel better than those judged to do the wrong thing.

The empty breath is indifferent to all the apparent differences of the world, so the more you connect with it, the more you adapt to this indifference and the less you want to be someone who makes a difference.

I am not a talented illustrator, so instead of making an illustration of the inner breath, I have manipulated an image found on the internet in order to give you an idea of the simultaneously movements inside it.

This scientific image found on the internet has been manipulated by Alexius to give you an idea of the simultaneously circular movements inside the non-definitive ball of the empty breath.

A basic intro to the non-definitive form of the empty breath
The empty breath has the form of an egg-shaped ball with lots of oval circles moving inside it, but contrary to what you see in the illustration to the right, it does not have a definitive centre or border. Neither do the circles inside of it, and there are so many that there is no space between them. Nor are they empty. Each one of them contains two yin-yang like waves, looking a bit like in the second image from here.

That the empty breath has a non-definitive form does not only mean that the edges of it are blurry but that neither its size or shape is constant. It may grow bigger and smaller here and there so that it momentarily feels to be more pear-shaped than egg-shaped.

As there is no up and down in the empty breath, the biggest part of the pear-shaped version of it may seem to be in the top as well as in the bottom, or in the sides or anywhere in between. And as the apparent centre of each one of the oval circles appearing to be inside the non-definitive ball of the empty breath is floating around, there is no fixed centre.

Even though there appear to be an endless amount of diffused shaped circles inside the non-definitive boundaries of the empty breath, and they are moving in each their own direction with each their own yin-yang like formed waves moving inside them, they are actually fused into one movement of two yin-yang like waves rolling in all directions – at bit like in the next animation in the paragraph The swing of the empty breath or in the two last animations of this article.

But as the above is very difficult to comprehend in a world where life seems to be divided into more than one, most will probably not feel the totality of the empty breath, but one of the many circles that seems to make up the empty breath, if you are conditioned to divide reality in more than one. No worries. It is not about perfection but going with the flow, as it comes to you.

The empty breath has no specific centre, and though it seems to consists of many different movements in each their own size and shape, everything is actually fused into one single move. As this may be hard to comprehend in a world where there seems to be more than one it is most likely easier to experience just one of its aspects at a time.

For most, the flow will be in a circle going from the stomach around the back of the body to the top of the head when breathing in, and from there in a circular movement in front of the body and back to the stomach when breathing out. The direction, however, does not matter. It is all about going with the flow, so if it seems to go the opposite way, by all means, follow that.

The flow can also be in a circle, about the same diameter as above, that instead goes from the abdomen to the throat or rectum to the heart. The diameter of the circle may be proportionally expanded so it goes from the abdomen to a point above the head or from the rectum to a point further above the head.

No matter where you like to perceive the location of the empty breath, it is the same emptiness you experience a second before the brain processes it and defines it as something substantial – read more about that here. As the emptiness of the expanded circle metaphorically speaking goes from hell to heaven, you may feel frightened or spaced out if you get stuck in one of those extremes.

Going with the flow of the circular movement in one of the above circles feels like you are surfing two waves inside a circle of the empty breath. But there are other ways of experiencing the empty breath. Below is a short introduction to these ways and then a more detailed description of each way.

Be aware though, that feeling the empty breath, as described in this article, is only possible to the extent that you do not wish to be or have more spiritually, mentally, emotionally or materialistically because the empty breath has not anything to give but the transparent bliss of nothingness.

A basic intro to the ways of feeling the empty breath
Sensing the operator of the empty breath (see the below paragraph of the same name) or the indifference of it (check out the paragraph The empty breath is not the giver of joy and happiness but indifference) is a state of not-knowing where you seem to be floating on clouds of bliss, whereas the state of not-knowing coming from the rhythmic flow of it is more like if you are moved by clouds of bliss.

The rhythmic flow of the empty breath can be heard as a distant sound (see the paragraph The transparent sound of the empty breath) or felt inside the body (see the paragraph The swing of the empty breath), or sensed as if nobody is surfing two yin-yang like waves inside and outside the body (see the next paragraph).

Each of the non-definable circles inside the non-definable ball of the empty breath – see the previous illustration – consist of two yin-yang like looking waves (but without the two holes), that are not fixated and probably moves in sync with the breath – or rather the breath moves in sync with them. It is therefore not so much about following the extraction and contraction of the physical breath but the flow of the empty breath, which may feel like you are surfing the outside of the two yin-yang like waves more or less in sync with the physical breath. The colours in this image only have an illustrative purpose.

Surfing the empty breath
The illustration above to the right shows a very simplified simulation of the empty breath in which you are not able to see that the number of circles inside it is endless. Nor does it reflect that the empty breath has no definitive border or centre and each of the circles inside it contains two non-definitive waves like in the above image, that can be surfed. Please notice that although the waves look like the two parts of a yin-yang sign, they have no holes. And as they actually are colourless, the colours in the images and all the others this article only have an illustrative purpose.

When the body is expanded by the breath, you surf the outside of the yellow wave, that may start from the stomach and then go behind the body into the head (see a more detailed explanation of the different possibilities for the placement of the circles containing the waves in the above intro to the empty breath). From there you surf the outside of the blue wave in front of the body, while the breath is contracting the body until you come back to the abdomen or below it. That is if you are sensing the waves in a circle going from the back to the front of the body.

Besides surfing the waves in that circle, you can surf the waves in a circle going from the left to the right side of the body and in circles anywhere in between these. No matter what circle you are surfing, you mostly feel the waves in the circular movement outside the body.

It is not about being in total synch with the rhythm of the physical expansion and contraction of the body, neither does it matter if part of the circular movement is skipped. What matters is to follow the flow as it comes to you, as that makes you forget the physical breath so it can take care of itself without any interruption from you being stressed or trying to impose ideas of balance, tranquillity and whatnot upon it.

Maybe the most joyous way to surf the flow of the waves is to go the whole way around one of them and then continue going the entire way around the other one, more or less in alignment with the breath extracting and contracting the body. There may be more joyous ways revealed to you, when following the flow.

Alexius has never been surfing in the world of the outer senses, so that following the flow of the two yin-yang like waves feels like surfing them is an imagination of his.

You can also surf the opposite way than described in the above. Going counterclockwise tends to lessen physical awareness so this might speed up undoing the belief in being someone substantial in a tangible world. The same applies if the non-definable edges of the empty breath are not experienced to touch the body but pass it on top of the head and below the abdomen, as that means there is no relation to the body when surfing it.

Thus you are set free from the body (read more about this here), and the body is set free from you, so it can follow its biological system without you trying to control it based on the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection, which is not possible. Just like you cannot import physical elements in a dream or vice versa. This does of course not mean, that you should refrain from consulting a qualified health care professional, who can assist in supporting the biological system of the body.

You cannot be someone definitive, when going with the flow of the empty breath, so the belief in being someone separated from the formlessness of that which is one is slowly but surely being undone.

As already said, there is no right way of being with the empty breath. Unlike in the world of the outer senses, where a wrong move can be fatal, there is no right way of going with the flow of the empty breath, so no need to bother about the right way of doing it. Besides going with the flow of the empty breath, you will soon be indifferent to what is right or wrong.

Going with the flow without knowing where and why.

Surfing the empty breath to feel good regardless the state of the body
Generally speaking, you will as already stated, mostly feel the flow of the waves in one circle – probably the one going from the back to the front of the body or the other way around – but you can also jump from circle to circle or feel them all simultaneously. It is not important. Neither is it essential to know all this.

As it takes more than one to feel something, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that feeling something is possible, so the more the belief in such a world is undone by the empty breath, the less you feel it.

Alexius was not aware of the empty breath in such a detailed way as described in this article before he started writing what the empty breath feels like and therefore took a closer look upon it. He usually just follows the flow without thinking about direction and whatnot, because in his case the flow mostly results in the sense of indifference.

But if you want, it is possible to be a bit more choosy than he generally is. Apparent problems with the past, or in the back, may benefit from being massaged by the empty breath through surfing both sides of a single wave in the back of you.

Should you need to be grounded, you could choose to surf all the way around a single wave passing through the abdomen or even lower in the direction from the back to the front of you, or the other way, or from side to side, or both of those waves, or any one or more waves in between.

Just like what you appear to be is nothing so is the empty breath, but unlike you, it has no need to conceal that by appearing to be something. Consequently nothing prevents it from being what and where it is most beneficial for you – even under your feet if that what it takes to make things work.

Regarding the empty breath and how its nothingness helps to reduce the symptoms of somethingness, Alexius speaks from personal experience, because his body is not in the best condition, as he has never been very good at being something specific. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

And if you feel the need to be intuitive or fact-minded (the right or left side of the brain), you could surf both of the waves passing the head from side to side in relation to it. The same, but around the chest, would be fine if it is hollow and seems to restrict the breath. That direction, but maybe around the head or stomach instead, is also very good in the case of vertigo, eventually combined with surfing the waves back and forth, where the waves may adjust themselves to go from feet to head.

In the case of a blocked abdomen, you surf a single wave down there in front of the body going sideways from right to left or the other way. You could also just surf back and forth the front of the wave. The size of the wave adjusts to the need for opening up the abdomen. Has sadness been hidden there, you may feel like crying. If so you take your time to do so and then return to the same part of the empty breath if that is where the flow calls for you to go.

It may also call for surfing a combination of single waves, for example interchange between surfing the wave at the abdomen and a single wave in front of you, that does not go sideways but from the head to stomach or the other way. Maybe surfing them simultaneously or maybe not just single waves but both waves in a circular movement around the abdomen and from the back and forth of you – or whatever combination that seems beneficial to you in regards to the problem.

The empty breath is extremely helpful in regards to alleviate allergy symptoms or other kinds of symptoms coming from IBS and COPD, for example. Not in the sense that it heals those things, but that it makes you indifferent to the state of the body and thus able to feel good regardless its state and therefore able support it without projecting fear upon it – read more about that here.

In the case of Alexius, the state of his body is far from good, so he speaks from personal experience when he says, that due to the indifference of the empty breath IBS and COPD, for example, are not something he needs to get over with so he can feel better, because everything is as it is. See also when he was saved by helicopter from the rainforest, even though he did not feel there was something to be saved from.

There are many possibilities for using the empty breath. Yet it is best not to use it but being used by it and to go with the flow as it comes to you because that sets the body free to heal itself. That is why it is so good in cases of psychosomatic disorders. Read more about that here. It is not commendable though to catch every detail about the empty breath in this article, as an intellectual understanding will not help you to feel the connectedness with the empty breath. On the contrary.

You cannot illustrate the inner breath, as it has no definitive form. This animation, however, may give you an idea about the ´structure´ of the inner breath and the high frequency of its inner movement, which seems to originate from an yin yang like curved line – not just as curved though. It feels like, it is the swing of this floating line that expands and contracts the body, so that it breathes in and out. Unlike an yin yang sign the inner breath is not a flat circle with a curved line, but rather a ball wherein the curved line swings upwards and downwards as well as sideways, forwards and backwards and everything in between. Unfortunately the animation is not able illustrate that, neither how slow the swing of it actually feels in the body. Even though it extremely active inside the ball, the experience of it is that it has all the time in the world to expand and contract the body.

It is not possible to illustrate the swing of the empty breath, because it has no definable form or movement. This animation, however, may give you an idea about how the swing of it feels as if it is coming from a non-definitive curved line, that is to be compared to the line in between the two forms of a yin-yang sign – but less curved. The swing of this line expands and contracts the body so that it breathes in and out. But unlike in a yin-yang sign the swing of the empty breath is not inside a flat circle but rather a non-definable ball, wherein there are many non-definable circles with each their own curved line. Depending on where one of these circles are experienced to be located in regards to the standard definitions of directions the swing of the empty breath is experienced to swing upwards and downwards, sideways, forwards and backwards or anywhere in between. Unfortunately, the animation is not really illustrating this, neither that though the swing of it is mighty, the experience of it may be that it is in no hurry to expand and contract the body.

The swing of the empty breath
What is said in the above about surfing the empty breath generally speaking also apply to feeling the swing of it, except that it is felt solely inside the body, where the movement of the non-definitive curved line between the two waves is sensed as a swing, that extracts and contracts the body in a steady rhythmic flow of breathing in and out. Due to the limited size of the body though, this line is felt less curved and probably also shorter than the line between the two waves described in the above.

The steady swing of the empty breath may seem to expand and contract the body slower than when you imagined being in charge of breathing. Yet the swing of the empty breath probably feels more powerful – so much indeed, that at first, it feels like the body does not have enough room for it. Maybe the break in between expansion and contraction also feels too long.

Just like surfing the empty breath can be done with any of the circles within the non-definitive borderline of the empty breath, the swing of it can be felt through the movement of the curved line floating in the middle of any one of these circles.

In other words, the curved line is not just pumping from the back to front in relation to the body but also up and down, from side to side and everywhere in between, as you may sense in the illustration to the left. Though you can feel all these directions simultaneously, it may be so foreign to you that you probably prefer following the swing of the empty breath in one circle at a time.

Alexius experiences the swing of the empty breath merged into one simultaneously movement, that feels like no movement at all, when listening to the opening of the opera ´Ahhnaten´ by Philip Glass.

If you experience the swing of the empty breath in all its directions simultaneously, the fusion of them at first feels as everything is spinning – see the speedy animation just below – but it quickly turns into a feeling of everything standing still – see the third image from here – so you feel breathless and the bliss of being indifferent to whatever you appear to be.

Connecting to the inner breath is fortunately not about perfection, as that requires much control and therefore blocks the inner breath to move on its own accord. The inner breath is always connected to you, but you cannot feel it if your purpose is to be someone definitive. In other words not being anybody the inner breath is not hidden. In fact it is very intense.

The swing of the empty breath is not felt as fast as the movements in this animation, but rather like a steady ongoing rhythm that with much force expands and contracts the body. Yet the resulting breath in the body is often very subtle and probably seems to be slower than you are used to – unlike the driving force behind the rhythm of the empty breath, that is a rush of energy within the non-definable ball of it. And even though the particles of this force is moving completely unstructured and at any speed, fast or slow – a bit like in this animation – it is such a relief to merge with this apparent chaos, as that prevents you from focussing on anything specific, so you feel like a fountain sparkling with joy.

The operator of the empty breath
Besides from feeling the swing of the empty breath or as if you are surfing on the outer sides of two yin-yang like waves in alignment with the extraction and contraction of the breath, you can also feel a constant rush of energy within the non-definable border of the empty breath. This chaotic energy at the root of the empty breath is not in line with the rhythm of the breath. Yet it is the force behind it. The feeling of it is a subtle sense of being here, there and everywhere or as if spinning through a world with no limits.

There are no rules, but it could very well be, that a take-off to ´the empty breath´ will take you to this aspect of the empty breath … and what a relief it is to float in chaos instead of having to fit into the rigid world of the outer senses.

Unlike the swing of the empty breath but like surfing its waves, this force is felt both inside and outside of the body. It is probably easier to feel its very subtle energy outside of the body because there the dense bodily feeling is not an obstacle. If you do not try to catch it, but go with its fleetness, it feels like you are a fountain of sparkling joy.

Sensing the operator of the empty breath outside of the body, you will automatically be taken inside, as the operator does not know one from the other. From there you may be transferred to the rhythmic flow of surfing or feeling the swing of the empty breath.

The apparent chaos at the root of the empty breath, where the operator of it resides and where you most likely land after igniting the empty breath, is therefore a good starting point, when you want to feel the rhythmic flow of the empty breath.

If you out of habit try to focus on the empty breath to hear the transparent sound of it (see the next paragraph) or feel its rhythmic flow, your effort to pinpoint it will fence it off. A more beneficial way to approach tits rhythmic flow and transparent sound of it is, therefore, to start in the chaos at the root of the empty breath – whether sensed in front or back of the body, on top of it or all around it – as that leaves nothing specifically for you to focus on, wherefore there is not something definitive blocking out hearing or feeling the rhythmic flow of the empty breath.

Hearing/feeling the sound of the inner breath, you feel transparent, as if there is nothing to separate you from where you appear to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Hearing or feeling the sound of the empty breath, you feel transparent as if there is not something separating you from other appearances in the world of the outer senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The transparent sound of the empty breath
Just like the rhythm of bass is not only heard but also felt in the body, so is the sound of the empty breath, which is like ´so´ when it expands the body and ´ham´ when contracting it.

Sometimes this rhythmic sound of ´so-ham´ seems to come from the nose and sometimes from an undefined space in the back of the head. But since there does not seem to be any boundaries, the sound neither is experienced to be inside or outside the head. At other times it seems to come from a distant space outside the body as if the breath has nothing to do with your appearance in a body.

Feeling the sound of the empty breath is not a compelling experience like feeling the rhythm of bass, because it cancels out the feeling of being in a specific body – as if there is no definable border between the body and its apparent surrounding. A sofa, for example, does not seem to differ from the body sitting in it.

This is basically due to the brain not being able to create a conscious experience of the signals it claims to receive from the sensory system of the body, when you are connected with the empty breath (read more about that here), wherefore there is nobody to divide them into judgments of inside and outside, good and bad, high and low, me and them and so on. Hence the apparent differences in the experience of in a world where there seems to be more than one do not appear to make a difference.

Since this means there is nothing to define such a world, it becomes obvious it is not real but a fantasy made from out of nothing. But just like the reality in the world of a game is the same whether you believe it to be real or not, the reality of a world where there seems to be more than one remains the same, when you sense it is an illusion. Your relation with it, however, is forever changed. There is nobody to believe you are someone definitive there because it is something you pretend (see hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive).

Do not get attached to the rhythm of the empty breath, because the feeling of the rhythm is related to the body, so it stops when the body ends.

Since a rhythm has a beginning and an end, it is best not to get attached to the rhythm of the empty breath as it manifests in the swing or transparent sound of the empty breath, as otherwise it is the end of you when the body stops to function. In that moment it is better to merge with the indifference of the empty breath or the non rhythmic and very chaotic energy in the operator of empty breath, so that there is not something specific to stop the enlightenment of that which is one from absorbing the nothingness of you.

Via the transparent sound of the empty breath, you may naturally float into glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which the visual-minded will experience as visions of light and the auditory minded as ethereal harmonies. If you are more emotional minded, you may feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises or taste the sweetness of life.

These glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, for example, the visual aspect of it, will merge into one, if not interpreted as something specific. Hence there is no experience of that which is you being different from that which is one, so nothing seems to hide there never was or will be more than the formlessness of oneness.

Read more about how to have glimpses of the different aspects in the enlightenment of that which is one in the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment. And read more about the enlightenment of that which is one in hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

The empty breath is not an appearance that can be manifested by the manipulating the physical breath or by exercising any other form of control.

Hearing or feeling the empty breath is not something that can be provoked by the execution of specific exercises. It is the other way around. When you are not looking for something specific, the empty breath can move on its own accord.

A bicycle has nothing to do with the place, it is transporting you to.

This is not to say, that techniques cannot be helpful in regards to tone down the experience of you as someone definitive so that the apparent existence of you in the tangible world fabricated by the brain does not seem to be a fact but make-believe. Unfortunately most forget, that techniques have nothing to do with what they seem to accomplish. Just like a remote control have nothing to do with the music it triggers.

As the connection with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing there is no awareness of separation. Hence the apparent difference between past, now and future or you and Alexius does not make a difference.

It is not possible to illustrate the inner breath in its totality. This yon yang animation (please abstract from the holes) though may give you an idea of the simultaneously movement of the two waves inside the inner breath.

It is not possible to illustrate the empty breath in its totality. But this yin-yang animation (please ignore from the holes, as there are no holes in the waves of the empty breath) may give you an idea about the simultaneous movement of the yin-yang like waves inside it.

The connectedness with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing
Alexius does not really know what the connectedness with the empty breath feels like because it is a state of not-knowing. However, for the purpose of writing about it, he had many short moments of the empty breath ignited, so that he from the vague memories of those could write what it felt like.

If the resulting descriptions seem patchy and confusing, you can use the disorientation to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. See Take-offs to ´the empty breath´Where to find ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´.

The empty breath is not only to be experienced within its border, because it has no specific border, so if you are experiencing it somewhere else, you have really become indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive, because only as such would you expect to experience it somewhere specific.

Remember that just like the experience of an orgasm is a very personal thing, so is the experience of the connectedness with the empty breath, even though what you experience is not personal and that you actually have no consciousness about it, since the connection is established half a second before a conscious experience of you as someone definitive is fabricated by the brain. Read more about that here.

In the resulting state of not-knowing what and where you are, which lasts until you insist that the apparent differences registered by the brain make a difference and you, therefore, must be someone separated from what you see. Until then there is nobody to experience, how blissful it is not believing to be someone definitive.

In other words, the feelings of the empty breath are memories, that pop up when you again believe to be someone definitive. And as memories are based on a very personal selection, your memories may be coloured in another way than in the above descriptions based on the memories of Alexius.

If still confused you are welcome to mail Alexius, although using your uncertainty of how to ignite a take-off to the empty breath is preferable, because he cannot help neither you or himself as he sees nobody in need of help.

The look of these sound waves reminds me in some ways of how it feels to be connected with the inner breath.

The look of these sound waves reminds Alexius of how the connectedness with the empty breath often feels.

NOTE ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATIONS
Alexius searched the web for animations and still photos to illustrate the different movements of the empty breath in the way he remembers them. He does not know if the illustrators had the empty breath in mind when they made these images – but probably not.

The animations – except the three last ones – are grabbed from Electromagnetic Plasma Energy Light.

NOTE: This article, that is part of hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing, is to be continued in the next one What is ´the empty breath´ about?.

+(+)´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be (in the process of being updated)

What you believe to be and see is nothing but empty space. Thus not being and seeing something specific is a blissful revelation of emptiness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath does not know about time and space, and since the world where we believe to be is based on that concept, neither does it know what and where we believe to be. This is not because the empty breath is very spiritual, but because it just like everything else that seems to be something is nothing, since there is nothing outside of spirituality as it is formless and therefore without beginning or end, For the same reason there is there nothing specific in it.

In other words, there is no world defined by time and space. Yet based on how the brain processes nothing into something, we believe to be somebody definitive experiencing a world defined by time and space.

Science states, the world that we seem to feel and see consist of 99.9999999 percent empty space, and the rest we perceive as elements of matter making up a tangible world, although that also is empty space. See also the articles Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and Free to float in the void of ´the empty breath´.

This experience, however, is just a cover-up for us being the same nothingness as the empty breath. The only reason we believe to experience something instead of nothing is that the brain renders fragments of nothingness into a tangible world, which it confirms as real by rendering others fragment into somebody substantial. This is, of course, a trick, because there are no fragments of nothing to render into anything. Read more about that here.

It is not possible to be something specific, because reality is oneness and since it is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Thus it is only the belief, that you are someone substantial in a tangible world, that seems to separate you from the nothingness unprocessed by the brain. But whether nothingness is processed by the brain or not, the experience of it is equally illusionary. Thus the empty breath has not something but nothing to give you, which is like walking on clouds of bliss.

Yet, that is just as illusionary as the experience of a tangible world, where you and Alexius appear to be substantial appearances separated by time and space.

You can read about the illusionary nature of any experience in the below articles:

The connectedness with the empty breath, however, is so closely related with the basic contrast making up the consciousness of you as someone definitive, namely expansion and contraction, that a continuous connection with the empty breath cancels out this contrast (read more about that here), so the brain cannot uphold the conscious experience of you as someone definitive, wherefore there is nobody to believe that nothing can be turned into something.

Hence there is not something in the world where you experience to be that disappears in the connection with the empty breath, except the belief that you are someone definitive having these experiences, wherefore there is nobody to confirm their apparent differences to make a difference, and thus nothing to support it as real.

There is nobody in a dream and nobody is making it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

But if you want to appear as if you are still someone substantial in the tangible world fabricated by the brain, it is not possible to continue being connected with the empty breath for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most (read more about that here, because in its rhythmic flow all contrasts are cancelled out, so the brain has nothing to work with, wherefore it falls into coma, if you do not support it by you seeking out specific thoughts and feelings that confirm you are a separated being in a world of duality, for example by sending love and healing to others.

Should you wonder who seeks out thoughts and feelings or who is wondering about this, the answer is nobody, because there is nobody in empty space. Just like there is nobody in a dream or anybody making it. Neither is the dream in the one appearing to dream it since there is nothing in it. Read more about this in the intro to the empty breath.

To make long short, what you believe to be in a world defined by time and space is a construction of thoughts automatically processed by the brain from out of nothing as if they represent something substantial. Thus you cannot connect with the nothingness of the empty breath, unless you are willing to have this belief in something undone.

This article is a preface to What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

That is why it is best not interpret it from a material point of view when the swing of the empty breath is described as something inside the body (see the paragraph of the same name in the next article What does ´the empty breath´ feels like?), because it is not something definitive in a specific place (see the paragraph The transparent sound of the empty breath in the next article What does ´the empty breath´ feels like?).

Also be aware that the description of the empty breath in that article is written by someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, which means that just like the concepts of the world in a game like Monopoly, for example, are acknowledged but not believed to be real, the concept of the contrasts that seem to twist empty space into elements like inside and outside, are acknowledged but not believed to be real.

In regards to the experience of the empty breath it is, therefore, best to deal with the definitive terms like inside and outside as metaphors for nothing.*


The graphic, which is grabbed from the web, has been manipulated by Alexius.

In the next article you can read more detailed about the circles in this image, that graphically illustrates a few of the non-definitive circles within the empty breath.

None of the non definitive circles though are outside of you as in this image, which rather reflects the egos idea of the empty breath, namely that it is something you as somebody extraordinary is in charge of.

Yet you are not in charge of anything, because there is not something in the world where you believe to be, nor is what you believe to be there, since there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless.

This does not describe the empty breath. It is not formless but nothing. And that is why it is your way back to the formlessness of oneness – or rather your way to see, that there is no more than the formlessness of oneness, because in the continuous connectedness with it the empty breath, differences do not appear to make a difference, so there is no separation to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

This is not a realisation of oneness. It cannot be realised, as it takes more than to realise something. But when the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is completely undone, which it is after 20 minutes, 45 at most, in a state of not-knowing (read more about that here), every single memory of a world where there seems to be more than one is gone, so there is not something appearing to hide what has been or will be more than that which is one.


*) This is not to be understood, as if the apparent physical border of the body never should be taken literally. In fact, it is very important to take it seriously, as long as it appears as if you are in it.

+ The ins and outs of ´the empty breath´ (in the process of being updated)

Haven chosen not to be in control, the empty breath automatically guides you. It can be compared to driving a car in automatic gear, which works regardless you are aware of it or not. In other words, when having connected with the empty breath, you do not have to always remember it. Yet you must remember not to use manual gears,* which can take some time getting used to, as you probably are used to considering yourself as self-made. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Keeping a balance between inner and outer senses or anything else has nothing to do with spirituality since it is that which is one and it takes more than one to be in balance. In a world where there seems to more than one, however, it works great having the empty breath balance the world of the outer and inner senses, so that glimpses of enlightenment** from the world of the inner senses become the foundation of how the world of the outer senses is perceived, namely as an illusion.

Thus you relate to the world of the outer senses in the same manner you relate to a game like Monopoly, for example. It is not real but yet you have fun pretending that it is.

The empty breath facilitate the synchronisation of the outer and the inner senses, so that what is experienced to be a world outside of you is not perceived to differ from the one experiencing it.

This is not to say that spirituality is inside, but that with the outer senses partially closed it is easier to grasp that a world where there seems to be more than one is an imagination used to hide the spirituality of that which is one. With this insight as the basis for your appearance in the world of the outer senses, it can be quite fun pretending to be someone there – just like within the context of this world pretending to be someone in the illusionary world of a video game is fun, because you know it is not real.

As Alexius is so used to the abstractness of the empty breath, he forgets that those believing to be somebody substantial can only sense something they can imagine as substantial – like the elements of this photo. So if you want to sense the empty breath, you must momentarily forget your belief in being someone definitive, who experience something substantial. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Introducing the empty breath
The first full article about the empty breath in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, namely Take-offs to ´the empty breath´, is all about how to connect with it, so your own experience of the empty breath becomes your introduction to it. That article, however, came as quite a surprise to Alexius. Not because he is not familiar with the empty breath. On the contrary, it seems to be the reason he is having such an effortless life in the world of the outer senses. Yet, he is so used to it, that he did not envisage it as something to write about.

And neither is there much to write about because the empty breath cannot be sensed by reading but by not breathing yourself and instead to have the empty breath expand and contract your body on its own accord. If the lack of control seems scary to you, you can use this uncertainty to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, whereafter there is nobody left to care about control. See the previous article How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´.

The empty breath is amongst other things triggered by not being exclusive and therefore inclusive***, as the apparent differences in the world of the outer senses do not make a difference when being inclusive. That is, if not everything is included because if it is the contrast of inside and outside is no more, which means there is no separation to hide, there never was and never will be no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

Hence that which is you has and is everything, wherefore there is no need for anything, neither the empty breath.

But most likely there are thoughts and feelings you forget or do not want to include – maybe because you judge them to be evil – and so you still appear to be something definitive, but not as certain about it as before. This crack in your personality is enough for the empty breath to be able to work on its own accord and start undoing the belief in being someone definitive.

In the connectedness with the empty breath you are indifferent to what and where you appear to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Happy or sad
At first, it may feel as if the empty breath is too slow to supply you with all the air, that you feel is needed for breathing. But when you do not override the flow of it*, which does not has to be adjusted to the physical breathing, everything is just fine, and you are guided to the world of the inner senses.

If you in the past have blocked out feelings of for instance humiliation, rejection and inferiority by hiding them in the body, these feelings are intensely felt, when connecting with the empty breath, as the flow of it unblocks everything .

But if you do not try to exclude the unpleasant feelings from the past, and instead include them by totally being them, you will not only feel sad but also happy – or rather none of them, as the inclusion of one side of a contrast cancels out both sides. In other words, you are in a state of not-knowing, which is like walking on air.

The cancel out of a contrast, that comes from completely being one side of it, for example being rejected, is not to be confused with embracing the feeling of rejection, going into it or any other kind of doing something.

Totally feeling sad and being nothing else, there is no happiness to contrast sadness, wherefore none of those feelings can be defined. Consequently there is not something specific experienced and thus nobody experiencing anything specific. This emptiness, which is a sense of bliss so intense, that nothing seems to be wrong or missing, is in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings called a state of not-knowing. Depending on how the worlds of inner and outer senses is mixed by the empty breath, this states is be more or less intensified. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Those ideas are born from the belief, that you are someone definitive experiencing something specific, wherefore embracing or going into something enhances this and thus fences off the cancellation of the contrast rejected / cherished, because what you belief to be is founded on contrasts.

Totally being a feeling is not something definitive, as it cancels out the contrast to the feeling you are being and thus also that, so none of them can be defined. Consequently there is nothing to define the one being nothing, so if you do not want to be nobody but somebody, you start asking what being a feeling means or inventing explanations yourself instead of being it.

It could also be that it feels as if you do not have enough room for the empty breath or that it is more painful than joyful, especially if you in the past have excluded specific feelings by projecting them onto obscure parts of the body, for example the muscle named psoas, where fear, worries and frustrations often are stored away.

Hence psoas and its corresponding muscle the diafragma may have become too weak to freely move with the flow of the empty breath so that it seems the empty breath makes you tense and not relaxed. But if you do not look forward to a specific experience, you will be indifferent to being tense or relaxed.

When someone gets hurt in a movie, that you are watching, you may also feel hurt. That is why the movie seems real. But because you know it is an illusion, it seems exciting to be hurt. This is how it is to be connected with the empty breath. Though the world seems to be real, you know it is not, and so its apparent ups and downs are equally enjoyable.

Being connected with the empty breath, you may experience that it imprisons you, but that is a projection based on your own feeling of imprisonment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The indifference of the empty breath sets you free from the need of being free or anything else
Looking forward to the expansion and contraction of the empty breath moving totally freely without any bodily restriction is a waste of time. First of all, you will not be able to enjoy the flow of it, if you are looking forward to a specific way of feeling it. Secondly, the expansion and contraction of the empty breath may never be experienced to flow totally unhindered by the body.

The connection with the empty breath is generally not felt to be complete. No worries. It is not about perfection but purpose. If your purpose is to undo the belief en being someone definitive, the empty space of the empty breath take on the function of an automatic gear, that shifts between the inner and outer senses, so that this belief is being undone, while you enjoy the excitement of appearing to be someone definitive.

There is no perfection in a world where there seems to be more than one, because there is no such world, as that which is one is formless and therefore endless. Thus keeping up the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one requires much focus and control so that your experience of a world where there seems to be more than one constantly can be adjusted so that it is in balance with what you believe to be.

Focus, control, balance and any kind of adjustment, however, is counterproductive in regards to the empty breath, that has no specific form or centre and totally moves on its own accord.

Nothing can restrict the empty breath, because it has no need to be something definitive. Yet believing to be someone definitive is a restriction, that will cause the experienced of the empty breath to seem confined.

As the empty breath sees nothing but emptiness in the world where you believe to be, it has no need to be recognised as something special. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To undo your belief in being someone definitive it does not need to flow unhindered in and out of your apparent substantial body. It does not know of restraint since that is a concept related to freedom, and restraint, as well as freedom, only makes sense if you believe to be someone definitive.

In other words, as the empty breath is not something definitive, it has nothing to be free from and no need to be acknowledged in a specific way. It is what it is, in spite of you experiencing the expansion and contraction of it to flow smoothly or not – or remembering it at all.

You do not even have to remember the empty breath to have an easy life. Yet you must remember not to forget, that your intention is to not be someone definitive, so that you do not override* the flow of the empty breath in order to appear as if you are special.

It is you, who do not feel free, because you are dependent on constantly being acknowledged as someone definitive by somebody perceived to be outside of you in a physically, astral or online world so that it feels as if you are alive. The feeling of imprisonment that this entails, you want to break out off, and as you assume the empty breath just like you is something definitive, you expect it has the same desire for freedom as you.

You may believe in free will, but it is nothing than a believe. Appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is the brain that takes every decision you believe to make, except when connected with the empty breath. But as it does not know of the world where you believe to be, it does not change anything but the belief that you are there.

And not believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, it does not seem to hide, there is no free will, since it takes more than one to make a choice and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless.

Fortunately, there is not something to solve and no feeling of imprisonment to heal, because going with the flow of the empty breath – no matter in what way it is experienced to be – you go with its indifference, and so the apparent difference of feeling free or not makes no difference.

Connectedness with the empty breath comes from choosing not to choose, so that this auto pilot supplied by the oneness of life can take over.

hol_majorNot being in control, there is nothing to obstruct you from being guided by the empty breath
The rhythmic flow of the empty breath may be heard as a rhythmic sound experienced to come from the back head. Yet the experience of a head is very distinct. It is rather like there is nothing than the rhythmic sound – or as if it is not coming from you at all but from somewhere indefinable. This sound, that you do not do anything to produce and that can be compared to the sound of saying Soham, seems to originate from the sixth chakra (third eye) – not from the chakra in the forehead though but in the back of the head – see in the illustration to the right.

This illustration is from the book Healing Hands by Barbara Ann Brennan, whose knowledge about aura and chakras does not seem to be second-hand. Aura and chakras, however, are not part of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, as they often are used to escape feelings of alienation through spaced out illusions of spiritual grandeur instead of undoing the cause of alienation, which is the belief in being someone definitive.

When the energy of this part of the sixth chakra, that is located in the back of the head a little lower than the illustration seems to imply, is going clockwise you will mostly experience the world of the outer senses to be troublesome, but counter-clockwise you are upgraded to a more laid-back version of it, where it seems easier not to be in control but go with the guidance of the empty breath. If the energy is stagnated the empty breath seems to be out of reach, and you may unconsciously be fixated in a mental pattern, that you carry out very strong-willed.

This image found on Facebook shows the common misunderstanding, namely that life is yours, where as reality it is the other way around and if you try to edit life, you will suffer.

This image, that is found on the web, shows a very common misunderstanding, namely that life is yours. In reality, it is the other way around, so the more you try to edit life in order to appear unique, the more suffering your uniqueness seems to cause you.

It is you, it is you who have chosen the direction of the energy in the chakra and also to clog it, if that is the case. Hence it is only you who can change it.

If the energy in the back of the chakras is not clogged, you are like a river going back to its source. In other words, you do not have a will of your own, unless one or more of the chakras in the back of the body are clogged. So if you want to control how the world of the outer senses is experienced in order to edit it into your own personal story, you want to freeze the energy in the back of the chakras.

In other words, you devote your awareness to the personal will in the front of the chakras and clog the transpersonal will in the back of the chakras by not given them any attention at all.

That goes without saying that neither do you want the transpersonal flow of the empty breath to be the basis for your life in the world of the outer senses, until you acknowledge, that you do not know what is in your best interest.

Collecting specific thoughts to fabricate an interesting personality in order not to be nobody but somebody is not a problem in itself. It is the belief, that the body represents this construction of thoughts, that fences off the enlightenment of that which is one. This is not to say that the body needs to be refined by yoga or something else to not block out the enlightenment of that which is one. The state of the body is not important in regards to the enlightenment of that which is one, because all that is needed to bid it welcome is to for just a split second completely forget what and where you believe to be. Even though a car is not you, it is taken care of as it is. Likewise, you also take care of the body, as if it is you even though it is not you but a fantasy made from out of empty space.

A NOTE ABOUT ALEXIUS:
Alexius has and partly still have blockages in the body, that seems to prevent the flow of the empty breath. Yet that is not so, and if it seems so, that is because we try to block out specific feelings in order to uphold the belief that we are someone special.

But since that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, it is not possible to become someone special in a specific body. Yet it is possible to imagine this – just like within the context of such an imagination it is possible to fool yourself to such an extent that the experience of you as a hero in a virtual world of a video game blocks out the world outside of it. In other words, it is the imagination of you as someone definitive, that blocks out the formlessness of that which is you.

Fortunately he has never been very good in upholding the appearance of being someone unique, and as it only takes one moment, where we forget what and where we are, to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, he long time ago became someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one – and no philosophy or religion – is the sole basis for Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. The voice behind them comes from a non-physical entity that Alexius calls Gudruång and whom he in the context of a world where there seems to be more than one seem to be a physical extension of.

+(+) How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ (in the process of being updated)

When not trying to make sense of this image but going with its absurdity, the uncontrolled energy in the experience spontaneously ignites a take-off to the empty breath and its bliss of nothingness. That is if there is the willingness to forget what and where you believe to be. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

DO NOT THRUST THIS ARTICLE
If not thrusting this article or anything else, including your judgment of this and that, there is nothing to define who is reading this. Thus there is not someone definitive covering the transparent bliss of nothingness.

Let us imagine, your eyes are covered by your hand, so you can indulge in a daydream about a better tomorrow without being disturbed. Though it feels great to be in your own fantasy, it also feels disturbing to be shut out from the world right in front of you.

Then you slowly start sensing, it is your own hand that hides where you actually are, and without really knowing why you suddenly take it away.

In other words, it is the built-up pressure and a change of purpose from daydreaming to being present, which makes you see it is your own hand, that hides where you are, so you automatically remove it.

As soon as you have had enough of the frustrations coming from the belief in being someone definitive, a take-off to the empty breath is automatically ignited.

It happens much faster than reading this sentence. Yet it takes a few more seconds to stop your conditioned way of breathing, which probably is based on forcing it through the tensions of the body caused by your suppression of feelings. That is not necessary for the empty breath, because it does not notice them.

Patiently waiting for this, the flow of the empty breath sets off from the abdomen, as if it is generated from an engine there and solely is inside the body, which you can read more about here, where after it continues without any regards to the apparent borders of the body like it is described here.

If not focused but defocused, all the elements used to construct what is believed to be to be you blur out. Hence they do not seem to block out, that the empty breath is no different from the nothingness of you. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Having had enough ignites a take-off to the empty breath
In some ways, the above process resembles the way a take-off to the empty breath is ignited. You have been hiding in your own story of a world defined by time and space.

The story is made up from thoughts and feelings, you have sought out and organised into a spiritual or mundane vocabulary, which is shared with like-minded ones, so you appear to be part of something meaningful with a plot so special, that the story seems to be hiding everything in it as well as the storyteller is made up from nothing, because thoughts and feelings are not real but an illusion fabricated by the brain from out of empty space. Read more about this here.

Though thoughts are just frequencies of empty space and therefore basically all alike, they are identified to differ from each other and as they are created by you, despite what is believed to be you is nothing but a construction of thoughts, that based on the thoughts, judged to differ from each other, is considered to be a unique and self-aware being capable of feeling love and whatnot. Read more about this here.

The exact moment you have had enough from the frustration coming from your story not delivering what the plot implied should be your fate, the selected thoughts and feelings making up the story do not seem to be able to establish the apparent differences in the story to make a difference, wherefore its nothingness is exposed. Not in the sense that you see nothing, but that what you see means nothing.

In other words, when you are fed up with your story of a world defined by time and space and do not try to deny, improve or transcend it, your frustration ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

You may not only sense the bare feet making the foot prints in this photo but also the body they belong to. Yet there is no body in the image, neither does anybody make foot prints like these. Thus what you sense is a construction of thoughts.* The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath does know what you believe to be, because it is a fantasy made from empty space. Thus it is only you and those you imagine being in this fantasy world, that deem you to be someone substantial in a tangible world.

This does not mean, that what you believe to be is transformed by the empty breath into something better or it is lifting you to somewhere higher. But that it takes away what you believe to be, so there is no consciousness to seek out thoughts and feelings, wherefore there is nothing but the bliss of nothingness, which can be experienced in the ways described here. It may also lead to glimpses of enlightenment, that is either seen, heard, felt or tasted as described here.

The empty breath cannot be experienced as something definitive, as it is empty space unprocessed by the brain. As a result of this it is noticed, if you want to experience something specific.

Since you are in a state of not-knowing, there is no awareness of its bliss, before memories of it pop up when you return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive, which must be done latest 20 minutes, 45 at most, after entering a state of not-knowing, if you want to remain as someone in a world defined by time and space. Read more about that here.

Be warned though, that when returning from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive, you may not be recognised in the way you expect, wherefore you comment very bitterly on those, you blame for the lack of recognition, or maybe scapegoats from your past or famous people believed to be fake.

No worries. First of all, most likely it is not others but you, who have a hard time recognising that you are someone definitive, because a state of not-knowing rubs of on the certainty of that.

Secondly, grievances can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, provided they are not suppressed by justifying them with the world but acknowledged as yours. Here you can read more about how the acknowledgement of feelings unveils their nothingness of bliss.

Yet, whatever has been suppressed can also be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. That is if you totally acknowledge the suppression. In other words, to entirely be what you feel in this moment ignites a take-off to the empty breath, regardless if you know what you feel and why.

When you are totally fed up with being controlled by the thoughts and feelings, you have sought out to form a belief system of how to be, the system is automatically left. Not in the sense that you give up, let be or surrender, but in the sense that without the system you are not definable as someone definitive. You nobody and therefore without a need to follow or give up any system. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Igniting a take-off to the empty breath is not a matter of what and where you appear to be, nor whether you deny or indulge in sex or anything else. All that matters is that you are so fed up from obeying the specific thoughts and feelings, you have compiled into a special belief system of what is good and bad, so you reject being a slave of this belief system.

»When you dig into molecules, and the states of ion channels, enzymes, transcription programs, cells, synapses, and whole networks of neurons, you come to realise that there is no one place in the brain where memories are stored,« says Kukushkin. This is because of a property called plasticity, the feature of neurons that memorize. The memory is the system itself. From an article in Wired.

This belief system is the ego, which is made when you as the self created by the brain change it into something believed to be better by selecting special thoughts and feelings that you assume will make you spiritual, live in the now, come from the heart and whatnot. Contrary to the self created by the brain the self-made ego does not know what is in your own best interest, so you are always faced by trouble when following your own way instead of the brain, as it is there to support the self, it has created with happiness.**

What you believe to be and see is fabricated by the brain, so when it runs out of oxygen there is no more to be and see. Fortunately this fabrication of you as someone with a beginning and an end is easily bypassed, because it is made from out of nothing. The animation is grabbed from the web.

As justifying a feeling entraps it in the body and therefore suppresses its energy, it cannot be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. To set it free you do not have to know what it is you have suppressed and why.

You just need to acknowledge the state of numbness it entails by totally being that and nothing else, as this does not leave something to define it, wherefore a take-off to the empty breath spontaneously is ignited and the suppressed feelings unveiled as nothing twisted into something, so that you, who also is nothing, can appear to be someone definitive.

Here you can read more about totally being what you feel, so that whatever you feel its transparent bliss of nothingness is unveiled.

To sum it up, being really fed up with the tyranny of the ego, which is self-imposed since there is suddenly nobody to follow its instructions of how everything is experienced in the right way. So though the experiences of right and wrong are the same, there is not someone perceiving them to make a difference.

Consciousness is a fabrication of the brain done with the purpose of keeping you occupied with the awareness of something, so that the nothingness of your existence is not exposed.

This does not mean, you have an experience of being at one, as only someone who believes to be a separated can have an experience of something. It is rather like having a dream in which there is no difference between the experiencer and the experienced. Yet there is no one knowing this because you are in a state of not-knowing. See also Every moment is the perfect moment – also for dying in the rainforest.

The uncontrolled speed of any disturbing or intensely pleasant event will ignite a take-off to the bliss, that comes from being in the of indifference of the empty breath. So if you are confused about how to connect with it, do not try to clear up the turmoil but be so confused, that there is nothing else than that and therefore not something to define you, wherefore the speed of nothingness ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness, that the empty breath entails.

Not interfering with the speed of thoughts and feelings, they are set free to further speed up and ignite a take-off to the empty breath, that syncs the worlds of the outer and inner senses, wherefore everything definable, like stress, for example, is absorbed by the high-frequency world of the inner senses. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

Uncontrolled chaos ignites a take-off to the empty breath
If you have not had enough from being a victim of your selected thoughts and feelings structured into a system of right and wrong, that you just ignore this apparent difference, the thoughts and feelings entrapped by the belief system will try to escape it.

Should you succeed in making an order in this mess by making up a new system believed to be more spiritual, thoughts and feelings may be kept in line when awake, but when at sleep and outside of your control they will not leave you at rest.

But if you do not try to stop thoughts and feelings, when they try to escape your control, they are free to further speed up and ignite a take-off to the empty breath, that in less than a split second syncs the apparent stress and chaos in the world of the outer senses with the world of the inner senses in which everything moves so fast and unorganised, that nothing is definable.***

As feeling upset is unveiled to be nothing but a cover-up for the transparency of bliss, you no longer need to avoid certain people or situations in order not to be bothered by them. Neither do you have a need to please those persons, who seem to cause happiness. In fact, you do not need anything from the world, except what the body needs to survive.

Check out The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness and It takes much speed to be at rest, if you want to read more about this, and check What and where are the inner and outer senses in the case this is what you want to dig into.

This has nothing do with psychotherapy, as it is about rebuilding yourself by and not blaming somebody else for your feelings but embracing them, as this enhances the belief in being someone definitive instead of undoing it. Besides, blaming something or somebody for what you feel is one of the fastest ways to get fed up with your own belief system and thus bypassing it. Read more about that here.

If you do not share your frustrations or joy with anybody but are being it all by yourself, you are not acknowledging a world where there seems to be more than one, wherefore it cancels itself out as if it is something and thus exposed nothing, which is pure bliss

This does not mean that you should let your feelings out or in any way share them, neither via an inner dialogue with what you consider to be yourself and others, nor should you keep them inside, but totally be them until the pressure of being alone is so unbearable, that you automatically leave the belief system causing you to appear as if you are separated from others, wherefore you are not somebody but nobody and thus in the transparent bliss of nothing.

When you are nobody, there is not somebody to be bothered about anything. Consequently only those who want to be somebody have a need for meditation or other techniques to stop or control the thoughts that disturbs what they believe to be.

In the connectedness with the empty breath, you are indifferent to differences, and thus also to being someone definitive. That is why there is not somebody with a need to seek out thoughts to be defined as someone definitive by them. Hence there are no thoughts that need to be stopped or controlled via meditation or any other technique. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The connectedness with the empty breath is neither about meditating, chanting or applying other techniques of self-control, because the on and off connectedness with it makes you indifferent to differences and thus to the apparent difference between you and others, wherefore there is no self to define and thus nobody to care about stopping or controlling thoughts.

Judgements about somebody being wrong justifies feeling angry. And judging somebody to be special justifies feeling joy. It also makes it look, as if it is the world that defines you to be someone definitive. The same applies, if you share specific thoughts and/or feelings with others in a dialogue that appears to be inside or outside yourself. Read more about this here.

Fortunately you do not have to stop this in order to undo the belief in being someone definitive, because if justifications are acknowledged, the energy that they have suppressed is set free, wherefore a take-off to the empty breath is ignited. Read more about this in the hack No justification = No victimization in Extra Duality Hacks).

Completely being what you feel ignites a take-off to the empty breath
A take-off to the empty breath is also ignited, when what you feel in this very moment is not suppressed by justifying it with the world but instead totally acknowledged via the completely being what you feel and nothing else, as that means there is not something to contrast what you are, and therefore nothing to define it, wherefore ´you´ are in a state of not-knowing.

That being said, blaming somebody else for what you feel can be a great way of seeing, what you have excluded from yourself (read more about that here), so you can include it by completely being it, which leaves nothing to contrast it and therefore not something to define you, wherefore a take-off to the empty breath is ignited. In other words, it is not required that you restrain yourself, and if you do, being that restriction completely annuls it and thus ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

When the fear of the unknown is fully acknowledged by totally being it, what seemed to be something, that had the power to frighten you, is unveiled as nothing. Thus what is unveiled is neither hell or heaven but the transparency of bliss.

The avoidance of a feeling makes it appear to be something that is dangerous, whereas the acknowledgement of it unveils it is nothing and that the absence of something is blissful. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Be aware, that fully acknowledging feelings can at first be felt like a trip to hell, because once you start opening up for suppressed feelings, everything that you ever have avoided to feel starts popping up. And until those feelings are fully acknowledged one by one or all at once by acknowledging their common denominator, namely fear of the hell, it may feel as if having panic attacks or endless despair and depression.

All those who like to talk about emotions are not into feeling them but to control them, because if something is totally felt, it is unveiled as nothing, wherefore there is nothing to talk about.

As it most likely is too fearful to acknowledge hell at once by being nothing but that it is probably a process over time, where the on and off the connection with the empty breath slowly but surely makes you indifferent to the apparently different of feelings you are experiencing, wherefore no specific feeling can bother you anymore. See more about this in It is easy to feel ´the empty breath´ when not looking for something and The bliss of nothing.

In The acknowledgment of a feeling unveils its nothingness of bliss you can read more about this, and in The ins and outs of ´the empty breath´ there is more about how to totally be a specific feeling, so that it becomes indefinable and therefore is unveiled as nothing but transparent bliss.

That applies to the fear of death as well. Just like everything else experienced as something, it is the bliss of nothing. This does not mean that death is the ultimate solution – especially not if performed by yourself, as that enhances the belief in being someone definitive. There is no solution in a world where there seems to be more than one but to have the nothingness of it unveiled. This includes whatever is deemed to be spiritual.

As any construction of thoughts can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, and as a world where there seems to be more than one is nothing but a construct of thoughts, there is nothing in it that cannot be used be used for that.

The way Picasso learned to paint was by replicating traditional art, which he did until he was so good at it that he could forget the techniques and go with the flow of the brush. But there is nobody to replicate in regards to connecting with the empty breath because its flow is that of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Not knowing anything ignites a take-off to the empty breath
We usually learn something new by replicating somebody else. That is how we learned to talk and walk. Connecting with the empty breath, however, is not about learning but unlearning, so the purpose of this and the other articles in hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing is not to learn something but to unlearn everything you believe to know – including your ideas about spirituality.

The ocean is what it is, despite what it seems. So is that which I am.

This also applies to reading about Alexius experiences of the empty breath in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?. They are not meant to be replicated but to give you an idea of what it is to be an empty vessel for the empty breath.

The reason Alexius so often is as an empty vessel for the empty breath is that he really does not know what and where he is. Neither do you or anybody else know what and where you are. You are most likely working very hard to convince everyone that you are not nobody but somebody.

Trouble always follows in the footsteps of being somebody, whereas it is nothing but bliss that comes in the wake of being nobody.

If you stop doing that, there is nothing to obstruct the empty breath from being activated as an automatic gear change between the inner and outer senses, so that glimpses of enlightenment in the world of the inner senses become the basis for how you perceive the world of the outer senses, namely as a fantasy made by nobody from out of nothing.***

To appear as if he is someone substantial in a tangible world, Alexius got to adjust to its apparent reality wearing sunglasses and whatnot. Yet he knows, that just like adjusting to the reality of a game like Chess, it is not real, so whatever he seems to accomplish, nothing is achieved. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That being said, as long as we appear to be somebody in a fantasy world that appears to be substantial, we cannot be nobody all the time. Alexius, for example, must adjust to the fantasy as if he is someone substantial so that the experiences fabricated by his brain can be used to formulate the non-teachings in the collectively agreed way of how communication is done in English. But to write them, he must be nobody, because their language is that of nothing.

Read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings until you are so empty, that a take-off to the empty breath automatically is ignited – or you are so tired of reading, that you forget to control yourself, wherefore uncontrolled energy spontaneously ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

This is why you automatically are connected with the empty breath when you do not know what and where you are, so go on reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings until forgetting it is a spontaneous process of not going for something but nothing and thus automatically entering a state of not-knowing.

Exclusiveness results in you appearing to be someone definitive, but since that feels restricting, there is always a desire for more. Inclusiveness on the other hand results in nothing and thus no hope for more. Hence inclusiveness ignites a take-off to the empty breath and its bliss of nothingness. In other words, fragmenting this animation into what you like and do not like will further define you as someone definitive and therefore enhance the feeling of something is missing, whereas the complete inclusion of it is your ticket to the bliss of nothingness.

Implementing other hacks to ignite a take-off to the empty breath
Not being exclusive and therefore being inclusive ignites a take-off to the empty breath (see 
hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment, and hack #3.5 Inclusiveness is pure bliss)

The same applies to see symbols of non-duality in a world of duality (see hack #2.1 Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality and hack #2.2 Everything experienced is a symbol of life), and pretending to be someone (see hack #14 Pretending to be someone definitive).

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings does not give you anything, because that which is you are no different from that which is one, and as it is formless and therefore endless, there is nothing else to have than the formlessness of oneness. Hence you are mistaken if you believe to be and have more than that which is one. No worries. The duality hacks in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings correct this mistake by erasing every memory of what you believe to have. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The Duality Hacks and that which is you
There is no reason to laboriously learn all the hacks in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings for undoing the belief in being someone definitive. None of them is a goal in themselves – neither do they lead to the goal, because you are already there.

That which is you is no different from that which is one, and as it is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is you.

Hence the purpose of applying one or more of the duality hacks is not to return to that which is one, but exposing what seems to hide it, namely the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

And as the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one do not appear to make a difference, when connected with the empty breath, the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is slowly but surely falling apart the more you are connected with it.

NOTES: 

+ Totally being what you feel unveils the nothingness of bliss (in the process of being updated)

If you feel like an outsider, you do not solve it by blaming others for taking your space, but by completely being that and nothing else, as then there is no insider to contrast it and therefore no outsider since one cannot be without the other. Thus there is just the uncontrolled energy of going with the flow, which automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath and its bliss of indifference to any contrast defining you or somebody else to be something specific. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Feeling wrong seems to go away when you complain about somebody because that makes you appear right and others wrong. But escaping what you do not like to feel by complaining about others is like hiding the feeling in a pot with a tight lid. Sooner or later the pressure from the suppressed feeling will blow off the cover and come out in a steam of grievances.

Since the pot in this metaphor is your body, the above is a way of saying, that although complaining about somebody at first seems to make you feel better, the problem has not been solved. Your resentment has just been buried inside your body from where it will leak when the body expels the suppressed feeling through physical diseases you will love to complain about.

Totally being a feeling is as easy as being completely devoted to sex, for example.

The way to get rid of feeling upset is not to suppress it but to be it. And this is not done by telling friends or a psychiatrist about it, as doing so alienate you from feeling it.

So do not share it with anybody. Instead, feel upset all by yourself until you are nothing but that, so there is no calmness to contrast it and therefore not something to define you to be upset or anything else. Consequently, you are in a state of not-knowing.

Read more about the cancellation of contrasts and therefore you as someone definitive in hack #3.5 Inclusiveness is pure blissSee The ins and outs of ´the empty breath´ about completely being a specific feeling, so that it becomes indefinable and thus leave you in a state of not-knowing.

The denial of feelings results in a spaced out state of mind with speculative ideas of a better world or metaphysical matters. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This does not necessarily mean, that the symptoms of being upset are gone. Your body may still hurt, for example. But as there is nobody to perceive it as something, it is like experiencing somebody in a movie being hurt.

And as nothing in a movie real, the thoughts and feelings popping up about it make no difference, and there any need to sync the experience of it with concepts of right and wrong for you to feel good because there is nobody to know what and where you are. That is if you remain in the bliss of nothingness and do not return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive.

Regardless you are in a state of not-knowing or in the conscious experience of being someone definitive, the body must be attended to as if it is something, maybe with the help of a qualified healthcare professional. Being in a state of not-knowing, however, the thoughts and feelings regarding apparent problems in the body are not scaring so they do not become psychosomatic but remain to be physical problems. See the hack No Body-mind Connection in Extra Duality Hacks.

To sum it up, it is the acknowledgement of a feeling as something specific that you experience as someone definitive, which makes it possible for you to completely be this feeling and nothing else, so there is not something left to contrast what you are being, wherefore you are indefinable and thus in a state of not-knowing. Hence there is nobody to know, the feeling has vanished, nor to seek out other feelings to confirm you as someone definitive.

The brain, however, falls into a coma after 20 minutes, 45 at most,* without your conscious participation in its rendering of a world defined by time and space. So if you do not want to disappear in the nothingness from where the conscious experience of this is conceived, you must return to the consciousness of being someone definitive by resuming your grievances of others, so the contrast of you and them and thus you as someone definitive is reestablished. Read here how grievances seem to make you appear to be real.

In the indifference of the empty breath contrasts are slowly but surely cancelled out, including the contrast of life and death. When they all contrast are cancelled out, there is not someone definitive to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

If the brain is not be kept active by you continuously perceiving everything as separated, it cannot uphold the consciousness of you as someone definitive, wherefore you are in a state of not-knowing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But instead of returning from a state of not-knowing to a the conscious the experience of being someone definitive, you can go with the flow of nothingness into the enlightenment of that which is one, where there is no consciousness, states of bliss or anything else that requires more than one. Hence there is not something that seems to hide, there never was or will be more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.**

You are in a state of not-knowing, when you do not know what and where you are, neither your beloved ones. Yet it is your devotion to what you and them is believed, that exposes the nothingness of this belief.

If you leave a state of not-knowing by resuming your grievances, you can always return to a state of not-knowing by using the restless energy of your grievances to ignite another take-off to the empty breath. See Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´.

But if go on from a state of not-knowing to the enlightenment of that which is one and do not stop if by perceiving any differences in it, you are do not appear to be different from that which is one is anymore. This not only means that the appearance of you as someone definitive is over but that you never existed as such, because it takes more than one to exist as someone and there is no more than that which is one.

No reason to worry about accidentally and abruptly vanish in the enlightenment of that which is one, because in most cases the fear of termination or the urge to seek knowledge will set in before that so that you automatically block out the enlightenment of that which is one and remain in the consciousness of being someone definitive.

Obviously, neither Alexius or anybody else has passed the point of no return in the enlightenment of that which is one because a world where there seems to be more than one there is still experienced, and it only takes one to undo what is not one since there is no more than that which is one.

To see that your hidden grievances are nothing appearing to be something is as simple like recognising the nothingness of this haze. You do not need to analyse or understand it but to go into it with open eyes. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX: WHERE IS A STATE OF NOT-KNOWING?
A state of not-knowing is nowhere in the sense that it arises from the nothingness from which the brain creates the conscious experience of someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. The brain is just as immaterial as what it seems to create, but it uses its creation to make it seem material. The created gladly attests to this, as otherwise, the world would not appear to be substantial. In the context of this creation, where nothing seems to be something, a state of not-knowing abstractly speaking appears to originate from the back of the head.

At least this is how it seems at first because many old grievances that you are unaware of seems to make a blockage in the rest of the brain.*** If they are acknowledged as friends of you, however, they will not appear to create pressure in your head but transparent bliss. Yet the whole brain will never be transparent in a state of not-knowing because some parts of it are needed to render you as someone in a world defined by time and space. See Where to find the bliss.

No need to stop complaining. On the contrary. Without them a world where there seems to be more than one would not appear to be there.

So keep on complaining, but do it with a smile in your eye – like you do when complaining about going to jail in a game like Monopoly, well knowing that it is not real, but what you need to do to appear as if you are better and, therefore, different from others, since that is what the game is about.

But you do not enter a state of not-knowing by stopping or getting rid of grievances, nor by understand them or forgiving those you resent for having caused them. It is the acknowledging of them as they are, that makes it possible for you to be them and nothing else so there is to contrast them, wherefore your being is undefinable and you, therefore, are in the bliss of not believing to be someone definitive.

As there is nobody to know this, it is not before returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive, a vague memory of the bliss it is to not be in this awareness pops up. Read more about how to approach grievances in the below articles:

You could also choose to approach grievances like described in these articles:

NOTE: This article is an evaluation of the previous one The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness. They are both parts of hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness (in the process of being updated)

That which is one can be compared to a movie running so fast, that no frames can be seen. In that context, a world where there seems to be more than one is the same movie slowed down to the extent, that it seems to consists of many different frames.* Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Oneness is contrary to the common belief not the same as quietness and stillness, as the ultimate speed of that which is one is wild and noisy. That is if it could be experienced, but that is not possible since it requires more than one to experience something.

You could also say, the reason oneness cannot be experienced is that it is like a movie running so fast that there are no frames to be seen. Thus it is not due to quietness but speediness, it is that which is one.*

In this context, a world where there seems to be more than one is the same movie slowed down so much, that it seems to consists of frames divided by time and space.

Those insisting in oneness being stillness are those who want take it slow, because that makes them able to remain as if they are in control.

It is therefore not quietness but fastness, that is needed to accelerate the slowed down movie where there appears to be a world with more than one back to its natural speed of that which is one. But as this seems to create too much pressure on our biological system, which is part of the low-frequency world of the outer senses, we need the empty breath to sync it with the high-frequency world of the inner senses, so that it can absorb it.

This is not to say, that stress gets replaced by pleasure since that is just as disturbing for the biological system as any other sensation. All that is needs for the sensitivity of its nervous system to work is to be free from the excitement imagined by the mind.**

See The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ ) about how uncontrolled speed of thoughts and/or feelings automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath, that immediately makes sure the stress of it is absorbed by the inner senses.

Yet this synchronisation is only possible, if you do not work against it by organising thoughts and/or feelings into a philosophical or religious system, because that slows down the natural speed of thoughts and feelings, wherefore the energy of them becomes so dense that it emerges with the body.

As there is no more than that which is one, everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is absurd. This includes Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Yet the application of them undoes the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is until the thoughts and/or feelings suppressed in the body infect it with weird diseases, and the body, therefore, spits them out through, for example, vomiting, wherefore the turmoil of them return to your awareness in an even more speedy and chaotic way than before. See also Totally being what you feel unveils the nothingness of bliss and The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

But if the synchronisation is not interrupted, the empty breath syncs the disturbing speed in the world of the outer senses with the world the inner senses, that increases the speed until it impossible for the brain to fabricate a conscious experience of you as someone definitive, wherefore there is nobody to judge the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one to make a difference, and thus no basis for believing to be someone definitive, which is pure bliss.

Please be aware, that the above explanation of that which is one versus a world where there seems to be more than one is as absurd as any other explanation of this or anything else, as it requires more than one to explain something and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Hence there is neither truth, love or anything else to be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, nor anywhere else. That is why Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not point to anything but that there is no more than that which is one.

In the connectedness with the empty breath, the apparent difference between specific thoughts is not perceived to make a difference, neither is the supposed difference between what is presumed to be you and others.

Thus there is nobody to be separated from somebody or at one with everybody – nor to experience the transparency of nothingness.

So although the image of you as somebody substantial as a hallucination and so is the apparently tangible world where you appear to be, it seems as if you are still there, which is quite hilarious, because that which is you is no different from that which is one so you cannot be anywhere, as it requires more than one to be somewhere.

When trying to control, change or stop thoughts and feelings, they are slowed down and therefore do not have the speed needed to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, where they lose their apparent meaning, since the empty breath is indifferent to differences. Consequently, they also lose their apparent power to define you as someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If thoughts and feelings are not stopped or organised into something you believe to be usable, the uncontrolled chaos of them will automatically ignite a take-off to the empty breath, and therefore not noticed anymore (see Take-offs to ´the empty breath´, and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ ).

Yet for the take-off to work, you must first acknowledge the chaos of thoughts and feelings exactly as it is experienced, and in no way try to analyse or understand it, because doing so hides chaos behind an orderly system, wherefore it is displaced. This is also what happens if you choose to observe it or justify it with something or somebody.

So not to hide the chaos of thoughts and feelings behind a mental or meditative activity, but instead acknowledge it as it is, you do nothing but totally being that. And this is not only the take-off to the empty breath but also the destination because totally being something leaves nothing to contrast it, wherefore there is not something to define you, so you are in a state of not-knowing.* Read more about this here.

But since there is nobody in a state of not-knowing, there is not somebody to know the transparent bliss of nothingness, that comes from the indifference to the consciousness of being someone definitive, before you return to that consciousness and blissful memories of being indifferent to it start popping up.

Nevertheless, you know, that you are in a state of not-knowing when you do not care about what and where you appear to be.


*) No worries, if you already have suppressed the chaos in a belief system of what is right and wrong, you do not need to find it in order to acknowledge it and thus release it. You just acknowledge this by being nothing but your suppression. Read more about that here.


*) You can read more about a world where there seems to be more than one being a slowed down version of that which is one in You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference and The world is to be compared to a movie of that which is you played in slow motion. And in the appendix to What is unreal is right in front of you there is an illustration of that which is one versus a world where there seems to be more than one.
