BM [+] In the indifference of the empty breath, all conditionings fade away (DRAFT)

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. 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 to 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.

When people tell you to slow down and relax via mindfulness or whatnot, they sabotage the fastest way to take it easy, because that comes from not stopping the speed of thoughts and feelings so you lose the control of them and therefore no longer can prevent them from igniting a take-off to the empty breath (read more about that here), that synchronises the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high-frequency world of the inner senses, so speedy thoughts and feelings are not felt to cause stress but tranquillity.

At times, however, you may feel so angry about somebody that you do not want this to happen because it will make you indifferent and thus without the anger needed to punish them. So you prevent the aggressive energy inside of you from igniting a take-off to the empty breath by projecting it on those judged to have caused it. But doing so, you first and foremost punish yourself, because we receive what we give (read more about that here).

This goes on until you do not project your feelings onto others but keep them in you so the unedited energy of them can ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The connectedness with the empty breath – either through surfing its waves, being in its transparent sound, the swing of it, or the sparkling force behind these rhythmic movements (read more about that here) – 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 frenetic energy is used as a take-off to the empty breath.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Focus, control, balance and any kind of adjustment are counterproductive in regards to igniting a take-off to the empty breath, as it has no specific form or centre and totally moves on its own accord.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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.

Not feeling the swing of the empty breath as described in the previous article, What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? may be due to trying too hard, focussing on it, or assuming the experience of it will make you feel something special. In these cases, you try to fabricate a specific feeling yourself, but the feeling of the empty breath cannot be made up, nor is it something definitive.

The same applies if you erupt the natural flow by taking deep breaths, shortening, pushing or holding it back. This will make you appear to be the master of it and thus enhance the sense of being an autonomous creature with a will of its own instead of a medium for the empty breath.

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

In hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, you can read more about how the mix of a physical symptom and your worries about it develops a psychosomatic disorder, that only can be healed when dealing with the physical manifestation in a physical way and the psychological problem in a mental or emotional way.

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.

The comparison of the empty breath with a yin-yang sign should not be taken 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 constellation. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Since the empty breath has no personality, it has no expression 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 the rhythm of it always adjust to what and where 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 it is that aspect of it you are in touch with.

In other words, if the transparent non-rhythmic energy of the empty breath is only partially experienced, when the body 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 the condition of the body, because that would render it unimportant and thus question your belief in being inside it.

This does not mean that you should not take care of the body and have it checked by a qualified health care professional. You also bring your car to a garage for a check-up, even though it is not you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the flow of the empty breath, you are automatically multitasking, because it does not know the concept of focusing on something specific. So if not feeling the empty breath, multitasking may pave the way.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you do not know anything, there is not somebody to be sad or happy – nor anything else. Thus there is nothing but emptiness, which is pure bliss.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Not being aware of something, there is nothing to make perfect. Consequently, you are not benumbed in an experience of yourself as someone definitive but in the flow of nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Feeling the empty breath is like receiving a new gift every moment. There is no way, however, to know what the present will be 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.

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 so. And you are right. It is not consistent. It has no such need. Only those who believe to be somebody definitive has a need to be consistent, and since the empty breath does not believe to be anything at all, it does not need to uphold a persistent 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 a call.

Likewise, he can always count on the empty breath. Even though it solely moves on its own accord, it is always to be felt in one way or the other. Maybe it is experienced to be going up and down, on a single wave in one of the circles in the empty breath, several times in a row, whereafter it is felt to be the swing of it inside of his head, and as if he is surfing both of the yin-yang looking waves in one of the other circles of the empty breath. In the previous article, What does ´the empty breath´ feel like, you can read more about these experiences and composition of the empty breath in endless circles.

After igniting a take-off to the empty breath, he mostly lands in its speedy 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.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not fence off the empty breath via a positive perception of yourself in which everything judged to be negative has been excluded, whatever you seem to feel will be interpreted by the indifference of the empty breath. Consequently feeling happy or sad makes no difference. Not in the sense that happiness and sadness feel the same, but in the sense that the apparent difference makes no difference.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The empty breath can be felt in many exciting ways. The most exciting one, though, is not a feeling, but indifference to the apparent differences experienced in a world defined by time and space and thus to perceiving it as real. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you are connected with a Fitbit watch, for example, it is not from the connection itself you get an exceptional feeling but from the data it gives you.

Likewise, you may not feel excited about the connection 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 the experience of it seems like nothing instead of something, you are in the bliss of emptiness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Doing Nordic Walking, or rather going with the flow of it, could be beneficial for you in regards to not be doing 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.

This is not to say that all these defence mechanisms must come to an end to feel the empty breath. Having the willingness to not be somebody, but nobody is what makes you feel 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 it is felt, or if it is felt in another way.

Read about willingness in Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one or the paragraph The only requirement is willingness in the article The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

Although these ways of feeling the empty breath definitely are fascinating, 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 experience of 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.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The nature of the empty breath is not to provide happiness but indifference, and since that 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.

Feelings, however, never last, so if you hang onto this feeling instead of going with the flow of being indifferent to what you feel, your merry-go-round world will be replaced by its contrast, namely a world of sadness. 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, and that is very blissful.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The most exciting aspect of the empty breath is cannot be felt because it is indifference.

At first, it may feel as if the empty breath is too slow to supply you with enough air for breathing. But when you do not try to handle the flow of it*, which may or may not be adjusted to the physical breath, everything is fine as it is.

Perhaps it feels as if you do not have enough room for the empty breath or that it results in more pain than joy, especially if you in the past have avoided the awareness of unpleasant feelings by projecting them onto obscure parts of the body. Read more about the suppression of feelings and the psychosomatic diseases it entails in hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

Thus fear, traumas and worries are stored in the body, often psoas and its corresponding muscle the diafragma. Since the latter, in terms of muscles, is the primary mover of the breath, it may have become too weak or stiff to freely move with the flow of the empty breath, which, therefore, seems to make you tense and not relaxed. That is if you are looking for a specific way of feeling the empty breath instead of going with its indifference because doing that, it does not matter whether the empty breath seems to result in a smooth expansion and contraction of the body or not.

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 always there.

The empty breath can be felt in many ways within its non-definable framework of a ball like thing, that passes through the head – or above it – and the stomach or below it. Yet it is not experienced in relation to the body, nor inside or outside. This is not because everything is perceived to at one when connected with the empty breath, but that the experience of something is perceived to be 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 being connected with the empty breath, as it undoes the belief that you are someone in a body. Read more about that here.

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

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

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.

Since the empty breath is not static, the experience of it may change from moment to moment, and it may differ from the experiences described in this article. No worries. Being connected with it is not about doing something specific to feel something definitive, but going with the flow. It is only when you want to make a difference, you must do ´the right thing´.

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 illustration 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 is modelled like an egg-shaped ball with lots of oval circles moving inside of it, but contrary to what you see in the illustration to the right, it does not have a definitive centre or border. Nor do the circles inside of it, and there are so many so close together that there is no space between them. In the emptiness of each circle, there is two yin-yang like waves. This you cannot see in the simplified illustration to the right, but there is a simulation of this 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, for example.

As there is no up and down in the empty breath, the most significant part of the pear-shaped version of it may be in the top as well as in the bottom, or on the sides, or anywhere in between. And as the apparent centre of each one of the circles appearing to be inside the non-definitive ball of the empty breath is floating around, there are many none fixed centres.

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 of them, they are actually fused into one movement of two yin-yang like waves rolling in all directions – at bit like in the animation in the paragraph The swing of the empty breath or in the two last animations of this article.

But as that is very difficult to comprehend in a world where we are conditioned to divide reality in more than one, most will probably not feel the totality of the empty breath, but one of the many circles that seems to make it up. 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.

This could be like going 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. As already said, it is all about going with the flow. So if that seems to go the opposite way, by all means, go that way.

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 width of the circle can also be 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 perceive the location of the empty breath to be, it is the same emptiness you experience a second before the brain processes it into an experience of something perceived to be 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 yin-yang like waves inside the empty breath. But this is just one of the ways to experience the empty breath. Below is a short introduction to them and then a more detailed description to each of them.

Be aware though, 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 sheer bliss of nothing.

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 in the article What is ´the empty breath´ about?) is a state of not-knowing in which 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 below paragraph The transparent sound of the empty breath) or felt inside the body (see the below paragraph The swing of the empty breath), or sensed as if nobody is surfing two yin-yang like waves in and outside the body (see the next paragraph).

That being said, these categories are not meant to limit you into experiencing the empty breath in specific ways but to inspire you to experience it in your way.

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
In the above illustration to the right, you see 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 this image and all the others in this article only have an illustrative purpose.

When the body is expanded by the breath, you surf the outside of the yellow wave from the stomach and behind the body up in the head. From there, you surf the outside of the blue wave in front of the body down to the abdomen or below it, while the breath is contracting the body. That is if you are sensing the waves in a circle going from the back to the front of the body. 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.

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 most feel the waves in the circular movement outside the body.

It is not needed to be in total sync with the rhythm of the physical expansion and contraction of the body, nor does it matter if part of the circular movement is skipped. What matters is to follow the flow as it comes to you, because that makes you forget the physical breath so it can take care of itself without any interruption from you being stressed or trying to inflict it with ideas of balance, tranquillity and whatnot.

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

Alexius has never been surfing in the world of the outer senses, so when he says going with the flow of the two yin-yang like waves in the empty breath feels like surfing, it is an imagination of his.

You may also surf the empty breath in the opposite direction. Going counterclockwise tends to lessen physical awareness so you would become less interested in returning to a conscious experience of 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 almost no relation to the body when surfing it.

Thus the body is set free (read more about that here), so it can follow its biological system without you trying to unite the physical nature of the body with mental ideas of wellness, which is like trying to blend physical elements with the immaterial ones in a dream or vice versa. It does not work.

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 fading out.

Going with the flow without knowing where and why.

Surfing the empty breath to feel good regardless of the physical condition
You will, as already noted, mainly feel the flow of the waves in one of the many circles inside the empty breath. This will probably be in a circle going from the back of the body to the front of it or the other way around. But from there you can also jump to the waves in another circle or feel them all simultaneously.

As it takes more than one to feel something, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that this 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 this 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.

It is, however, possible to be more choosy than Alexius is typically. Having worries about the past, or pain in the back, you can choose to be massaged by surfing both sides of the wave behind you and leaving out the one in front of you within a circle of the empty breath that goes from the back to the front of you. Should you want to be grounded, you can surf all the way around a single wave in a circle going from the back to the front of you where the waves are not located like in the above but in the top and bottom of the circle.

The wave you surf, in this case, is the bottom one passing through the abdomen or even lower in the direction from the back to the front of you, or the other way around, or the bottom wave in another circle going from the left to the right side of you, or both of the bottom waves in these circles, or the bottom wave in any one or more circles in between the two others. No reason to memorise this. Just go with the flow.

Just like what you believe to be is nothing so is the empty breath, but unlike you, it has no need to conceal that by appearing to be something in specific. Consequently, there is not something that prevents it from being what and where is most beneficial for you – even under your feet if that is what it takes to make you forget what you believe to be.

Supposing you want to enhance the intuitive or fact-minded side of you, you could do this by respectively surfing all the way around the wave to the right and the left in a circle going around the head sideways. In a circle that also goes sidewise but around the chest, you could surf all the way around the wave in front of the chest if it is hollow and seems to restrict the breath. Surfing both waves but only on the outer side of them in a circle going sideways around the head or stomach, is excellent in the case of vertigo, eventually combined with surfing the two waves back and forth of you in a circle going from your feet to above the head.

In the case of tight hips, blocked abdomen or spasm in the lower back, you completely surf the wave behind you and then the one in front of you in a circle going sideways in that area, and so on. You could also try surfing in a similar circle where the waves are not in behind and in front of you but on the sides. The size of the circle and thus the waves adjust to the need for relaxing these areas. Is sadness released from there, you may feel like crying. If so, forget about the empty breath and take the time to grieve. Then return to the same circle of the empty breath if that is what the flow calls for.

It may instead call for surfing a combination of other waves, for example a wave in front of you in a circle going sideways at the abdomen and a wave in front of you in a circle that does not go sideways but from the head to stomach or the other way. Maybe surfing them simultaneously or perhaps not just one of the waves in the circles but both waves in a circular movement around the abdomen and from the back and front of you – or whatever combination that seems beneficial to you in regards to getting through the lockdown.

The empty breath is also beneficial in regards to alleviate allergy symptoms or other kinds of symptoms coming from IBS and COPD, for example. It may not heal these or any other physical sickness, because the purpose of the duality hacks is not to heal the body but the sick belief that you are in it. This the empty breath does by making you indifferent to being someone. Read more about that here.

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.

In the case of Alexius, the state of his body is not that 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 it over with to feel better, as the discomfort is not perceived to be something but nothing.

If you are not looking to get it right, nothing is wrong or missing. Hence every moment is the perfect moment (hack #4.1 Every moment is the perfect moment). You have no need to get it right if you face your anger, because then it does not seem wrong and you do not have hide it by looking right.

See also when Alexius was saved by helicopter from the rainforest, even though he did not feel there was something to be saved from. It is not just a rosy story, though, because the transition from perceiving desperation as something to nothing was very upsetting until he did not perceive hopelessness to be wrong but that which set him free. See also the hack No Hope = Oneness in Extra Duality Hacks.

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

In hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, you can read more about how the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection, where you perceive yourself to be the master of the body, results psychosomatic disorders.

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 this is solely felt 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 definitive size of the body, this line is felt less curved and probably also shorter than the line in 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 the breathing. Maybe the break in between expansion and contraction also feels too long. But 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.

Just like surfing the empty breath can be done on the waves in any of the circles within the non-definitive border of the empty breath, the swing of it can be felt in 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, which you may sense in the illustration to the left. Though you can feel all these directions simultaneously, it probably is so unfamiliar that you may prefer to feel the swing of the empty breath in one circle at a time.

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 so still – see the third image from here – that you feel the bliss of being indifferent to what and where 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 two yin-yang like waves more or less in alignment with the extraction and contraction of the physical 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 rhythmic but abstract. Yet it is the force behind the rhythm of the empty breath. The feeling of it is a subtle sense of being here, there and everywhere, or as if spinning through a world with no limits where you are not limited to be someone.

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 it … 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 sensed both inside and outside of the body. It may be easier to feel its very subtle energy outside of the body as there the dense bodily feeling is not an obstacle. If you do not try to catch its abstractness, 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 be in 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, you are bound to perceive it as something and thus to fence it off. A more beneficial way to approach the rhythmic flow and transparent sound of the empty breath is to start in the chaos of its root – whether sensed in front or back of the body, on top of it or all around it – because 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.

The apparently definitive shape of you in a body is, therefore, exposed as make-believe.

Sometimes it is like this rhythmic sound of ´so-ham´ comes from the nose and at other times from an undefined space in the back of the head. And then again, the sound does not seem to have a definable location, so it is neither experienced to be inside or outside the head. It may even appear to originate from an invisible space outside the body like it has nothing to do with your appearance in a body.

And as that is actually so, feeling the sound of the empty breath is not a compelling experience like feeling the rhythm of the 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 deeply 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, them and me 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 that 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 is 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. Being someone definitive, there is all pretence – just like it is, within that reality, when one pretends to be in the world of a game. See hack #1.3 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 in the swing or transparent sound of it, because it ends when the body stops to function. At 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 it, 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 it.

The glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, for example, the visual aspect of it, merges 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 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 #6-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

The empty breath, however, is not something that can be brought about by manipulating the physical breath or exercising any other form of control. It is the other way around. When you go with the flow, the empty breath joins you.

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
Nobody really knows what the connectedness with the empty breath feels like as it is a state of not-knowing. So to write about that, he had to go back and forth between a state of not-knowing and the conscious experience of being someone, and compile the vague memories of the empty breath popping up in his consciousness.

If the resulting descriptions seem patchy and confusing, you can use the disorientation to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. See how to do that in Take-offs to ´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.

Please remember that even though the connectedness with the empty breath is impersonal, what you remember of it afterwards is personal, so your memories may be coloured in another way than those of Alexius.

If still confused you are welcome to mail Alexius, although using your uncertainty 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.

Thus you would be better off keep on reading about it until you hardly can stay awake, then go to bed, forget what you read the empty breath feels like, close your eyes, and most likely it will be there in one way or the other. Surely, they will rapidly change. That is if you do not try to hang onto one of them. In that case, they will cease.

Your eyes do not have to be closed, and you do not have to go to bed. You can sit anywhere in any position. You can also walk, run and/or talk. But if you are new to the empty breath, it may seem easier to connect with it by partly cut out the world of the external senses yourself, instead of waiting for it to be toned down when the empty breath syncs it with the world of the inner senses. You should, however, never attempt to cut out the world of the external senses yourself in situations, that requires your full attention in that, like driving a car, for example.


NOTE ABOUT NOTHING VERSUS SOMETHING
In hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and the below articles, you can read about overriding the natural flow of nothing, so you appear to be something and thus fence off the empty breath:

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, and how feeling this makes him indifferent to the apparent differences of the world experienced to be outside of him.

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 ABOUT THIS ARTICLE
The above article that is part of hack #5.2 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 is not part of the experiences of you being someone substantial in a tangible world, which the brain fabricates by twisting nothing into something (read more about that here). This is because the nothingness of the empty breath has not been twisted into something by the brain. That does not mean the empty breath is spiritual but that it remains in the nothingness from where the brain creates a world of something. Thus connecting with the empty breath, going to that which is spiritual, namely the formlessness of oneness, is a journey without distance.

The only reason we believe the experiences created by the brain are real and not fantasy is that they seem to confirm we are somebody and not nobody. Hence it is only the desire to be somebody, that seems to disguise that we are nothing processed by the brain into something.

Since it has taken the brain one second to fabricate the experience of what you believe to be and read right now, and it has made it from out of nothing, there was not something one second ago, and since that is where the empty breath resides, you connect with it by not perceiving the present experience as something which takes you back one second in time to where there is nothing because the brain has still not twisted it into the current experience of something.

In the rhythmic flow of nothing, the basic contrast making up the consciousness of you as someone definitive, namely expansion and contraction, is cancelled out (read more about the cancellation of contrasts here), so although the experiences fabricated by the brain, as if nothing is something, goes on, as usual, there is nobody to perceive the experiences as something. Read about the indifference of the empty breath here. In the next article, you can read how it feels.

Science states, the world we seem to feel and see consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and as immaterial as a dream, is what we perceive to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space. See the articles Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and Free to float in the void of ´the empty breath´.

The brain, however, falls apart after 20 minutes, 45 at most (read more about that here) without someone confirming the experiences it fabricates to be something. So if you want to be able to return to the experience fabricated by the brain of you as someone in a world defined by time and space, you must leave this state of not-knowing before the brain falls into a coma. This you do by confirming you are separated from others, for example by sending love and healing to them. Read more about that here.

It is not possible to be someone definitive, because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Should you wonder who does this or who are wondering about it, the answer is nobody, because there is nobody in empty space. Just like there is nobody in a dream and not somebody making it. Nor is the dream inside the one appearing to experience it because it consists of nothing. Read more about that here.

To make long short, what and where you believe to be is a construction of thoughts, that, just like a mirage, is experienced to be something until you get closer and see it is nothing. This look you get when with the empty breath because it sees what it is itself, namely nothing.

That is why it is best not to interpret the location and feel of the empty breath, as described in the next article, What does ´the empty breath´ feel like, as definitive. The empty breath is not definable by time and space and thus not something specific located in a definitive place you can feel in a categorical way (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. This means, that just like the concepts of the world in a game like Monopoly are acknowledged but not believed to be real, the experience of a tangible world in empty space is acknowledged but not perceived to be substantial because there is nothing else than the formlessness of oneness. Thus it is best to perceive the explanations in the next article of where the empty breath as metaphors for nowhere.


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 rings that you are surfing within the empty breath, when connected with it.

None of those, though, are outside of you as in this image, which rather reflects the idea the special self has of the empty breath, namely that it is something it can control and, therefore, exploit. Read more about the special self here.

But no matter what kind of self you believe to be, you do not exist and thus have nothing to control or let go off, because that which is one is formless and therefore endless and it takes more than one to exist somewhere. This applies to the empty breath, as well but since it does not believe to anywhere or have any intention of taking you somewhere, it is your way back to the formlessness of oneness.

Not in the sense that it helps you realise oneness. That is not possible, since it takes more than to realise something. But when every single memory of a world where there seems to be more than one is gone, which it is after 20 minutes, 45 at most, in a state of not-knowing (read more about that here), there does not appear to be something hiding that there never was or will be more than that which is one.


NOTE: This article is a preface to the next article What does ´the empty breath´ feels like?. Both pieces are part of hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

However, the ways described in this article and the other ones in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing are generally not geared for the basic but special self. That is because most are drawn in by the excitement they imagine to get from being special, rather than the pure happiness, they automatically receive when being basic, because the latter will not make them essential in a world where being special, bitchy and having something extraordinary is the standard. Read more these two kinds of self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

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

So although being special brings about stress and being basic results in relaxation, almost everybody does their best to establish themselves as somebody special in a mundane or so-called spiritual way. Thus hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing is mostly about using stress and speedy thoughts as a take-off to the empty breath. In regards to the basic self, it is not the stress of being somebody but the relaxation of being nobody, that ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

+ The speed of unedited thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothing (DRAFT)

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

PART 1: UNEDITED SPEED BRINGS YOU INTO THE BLISS OF NOTHING
Oneness is contrary to the common belief, not the same as stillness but loudness. That is if the speed of it could be experienced. But that is not possible, because it requires more than one to experience something.

You could also say, the reason oneness cannot be experienced is that it is a movie (an analogue), that is played so fast that the individual frames of it cannot be seen because. The speed merges them into one. Hence it is not quietness but speediness that is the bedrock of that which is one.

Read more about the fantasy of a slowed-down version of that which is one where there seems to be more than one can in The world is to be compared to a movie of that which is you played in slow motion, and see illustration of that in the appendix to What is unreal is right in front of you.

In the context of this metaphor, a world where there seems to be more than one is a movie of oneness 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 to take it slow, because that gives them time to feel they are in control.

It is, therefore, not calmness but speediness, that is needed to accelerate the slowed-down movie of oneness into its natural speed, which is so fast that nothing can be seen. Hence hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing is not about slowing down thoughts or stopping them but not holding them back so the speediness of them ignite a take-off to the empty breath. It syncs the speedy thoughts in the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high-frequency world of the inner senses, so they can be further accelerated without you going insane in the world of the outer senses.

Inevitable thoughts move so fast that there is no time to hold onto any of them to make you come out as someone definitive in the world of the outer senses. Thus that world is perceived from the world of the inner senses, where you are not someone definitive. Thus you are in a state of not-knowing, which is pure bliss.

If you remain in that state for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, the speed of the thoughts become so fast that they merge into the enlightenment of that which is one, from where there is nothing to gently fall into the formlessness of oneness. See hack #6-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one. Most, however, never enter a state of not-knowing and if they do they leave it after a few seconds or minutes. So we return to the subject of this hack, which is not that which is one but how to enjoy the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one while slowly but surely having it undone.

Since there is no more than that which is one, everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is absurd. That 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.

For a take-off to the empty breath to work, you do not have to sit in special postures or do something extraordinary. There is one thing, though, you must do to make it work. You got to acknowledge the chaos of thoughts and feelings as they are experienced without analysing or trying to understand them, nor to shape them by a philosophical or religious system, because if editing, the speed of chaos is replaced by the numbness of order.

To not suppress the chaos through mental or meditative activity, but instead acknowledge it as it is, you do nothing than to totally be it.* This is not only the take-off to the empty breath but also the destination because totally being something leaves nothing to contrast it. And as that does not leave behind anything to define you, you are in a state of not-knowing. Read more about that here.

In a state of not-knowing, 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 anybody – nor to experience the bliss that this entails.

But you do not know the bliss of that before you return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive and memories of it start popping up. You know, however, you are in a state of not-knowing when you do not care about what and where you appear to be.

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.

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, because 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.

And as it also takes more than one to find something, there is neither truth, love, oneness or anything else to be found anywhere. Thus Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not reveal oneness, nor do they point to it, since that requires more than one. But they point to the belief that it is possible to be and have more that which is one as that is what seems to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one because it is formless and therefore endless.

If you do not like to feel you are an outsider, it is not solved by blaming others, but by only feeling that. As that means there is nothing to contrast what you feel, it cannot be defined. Hence there is nothing but the bliss of emptiness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2: COMPLETELY BEING SOMETHING UNVEILS THE BLISS OF NOTHING
Feeling wrong seems to go away when you complain about somebody because that makes them appear to be wrong and you to be right. But complaining about others to escape unwanted feelings in yourself is like covering them under the lid in a cooking pot. Sooner or later, the pressure of the suppressed emotions blows off the lid and steam of grievances shoot out.

Since the cooking pot in this metaphor is your body, the above is to say, that although complaining about somebody at first seems to make you feel better, the problem is not solved. It has just been buried inside your body from where it will come out in the open when the body expels the suppressed problem through physical disease. Whatever that is, you most likely blame it for having caused you to suffer, so you still can deny having an emotional problem.

You do not get rid of an emotional problem by suppressing but feeling it. This is not done by telling friends or a psychiatrist what you think that your problem is. Focusing on the cause displaces the feeling, and so does talking about it because that disassociate you from feeling it.

Totally being a feeling is as easy as being completely devoted to sex, for example. It does not mean, by the way, that you go deep down in the feeling. It is like going deep into a well. No reason to do that. It is the same water on the surface. In other words, totally being an emotion is to feel as it comes to you now.

So instead of sharing what you think you feel with somebody, feel it all by yourself until you are nothing but that, wherefore there is no feeling to contrast it and, therefore, not something to define you as having a problem or anything else. Consequently, you are in a state of not-knowing.

Read more about the cancellation of contrasts and thus of you as someone definitive in Without contrasts, there is no duality, and so nothing seems to hide there is no more than non-duality. See hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough about hiding feelings in the body and the psychosomatic disorders it entails.

And check out The ins and outs of ´the empty breath´ about completely being a specific feeling, so what you are being becomes indefinable and thus brings you into a state of not-knowing.

Contrasts are slowly but surely cancelled out in the indifference of the empty breath, including the contrast between life and death. When all contrast is cancelled out, there does not appear to be somebody in a world of something to hide there never was or will be more than the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This does not necessarily mean that the bodily symptom of the suppressed feeling magically vanishes. The body may still hurt. But since there is nobody to perceive this as something, it is, just like in a dream, nothing, which applies to everything else, so there is not something to be bothered by. Nor is there anybody to know the bliss that this entails before returning to the belief in being someone and blissful memories of not believing that start to surface.

Since these memories slowly by surely rubs off on your perception of what and where you appear to be as someone definitive, you do not need to avoid or hold onto any feeling to establish yourself as special. Consequently, the body is not used as a garbage bin for unwanted feelings, so it is not disturbed by immaterial matters and can take care of physical issues just like it was made to do. Sometimes, maybe, with a little help from a qualified healthcare professional.

To sum it up, acknowledging a feeling as something specific that you experience as someone definitive makes it possible to completely be what you feel. Being that and nothing else there is not something to contrast it, and therefore nothing to define what you are. Thus you enter a state of not-knowing. However, it is not before you leave it and return the belief in being someone definitive, that you remember, the bliss that comes from being indifferent to that.

You must leave a state of not-knowing after 20 minutes, 45 at most, at a time if you want to be able again to have a conscious experience of being someone definitive because the brain falls into a coma if there is not a continuous dialogue – internal or external – about something that seems to confirm you are someone definitive. Read more about this in the article Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ or check the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks.

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

So if you do not want the brain to fall into a coma, and you to disappear in the nothingness from where the experiences of what you believe to be is fabricated by the brain, you must return to the consciousness of being someone in a world of something by resuming your grievances about the world experienced to be outside of you, so you again are established to be separated from what you experience and thus to be someone definitive. Read here how complaints seem to make you appear to be real.

Instead of returning from a state of not-knowing to the conscious experience of being someone definitive, you can totally forget about something, so there is nothing to be absorbed by the enlightenment of that which is one, so there is no consciousness, states of bliss or anything else that requires more than one.

Hence there is not something which seems to hide, there never was or will be nothing but that which is one. Read about the enlightenment of that which is one in HACK #5-7, Inner senses, enlightenment, and glimpses of it. This does not only mean that the appearance of you as someone definitive is terminated, but that you have never existed, neither in a material or spiritual way, because it takes more than one to exist.

No reason to worry about accidentally and abruptly being terminated as someone in the enlightenment of that which is one, because in most cases the fear of it (read more about that here) or the urge to separate will set in before that, so you automatically fend off that which is one to appear as if you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Obviously, nor 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 is still experienced, and it only takes one to undo what is not one because there is no more than that which is one.

PART 3: THE RETURN FROM THE BLISS OF NOTHING TO THE HAPPINESS OF SOMETHING
When returning from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone, just like a criminal, you do not think in the categories of right or wrong. Unlike a criminal, however, you do not replace these categories with a calculation of what you can get away with it. You are aware that you do not choose what you do – only how you perceive it.

You do not get stressed from always having to avoid what you judge as negative, being angry for example, when perceiving everything as it is what it is. Read more about this perception here.

And since your perception always is that it is what it is, negative thoughts are just as welcome as positive ones. So is the empty breath. Most of this hack, however, presumes you do not perceive everything as it is what it is, but I know what it is. And as you have to exclude everything unknow from your awareness to uphold this perception, you are full of hidden thoughts and feelings which suppressed energy can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

If you have been reading hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, you have probably grasped that you, in the terms of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, are the basic self when perceiving everything as it is what it is and the special self, if you have made a perception of yourself that implies you know better than the brain and thus have established yourself better and more unique than the basic self the brain has created – or in the process of doing it.

Being in sync with the brain, there is nothing to disturb you from falling into a state of not-knowing.

Since the basic self is in sync with the brain, it feels the happiness of something contrary to the special self which is out of sync and thus gets the sadness of something. They are equally illusionary, though, but it does not seem so dangerous to have that exposed when being a basic and not a special self.


*) If you already have organised the chaos of thoughts into a specific belief system, there is no need to going back to chaos to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. You just acknowledge the suppression of it by being nothing but that. Read more about that here.

+ Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ (in the process of being updated)

You can use anything that seems to speed you up, whether it appears to be positive or negative, for a take-off to the empty breath. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Success, as well as failure in the world of the outer senses, tends to speed up thoughts and feelings, which is felt as stressful. Some, therefore, try to escape this by meditating, even though that often has the opposite effect, namely to bring about more thoughts and feelings. Read more about that here.

If you do not try to control or stop the speedy and chaotic movements of thoughts and feelings so they can be used to organise an image of you as someone special in the world of the outer senses, there is nothing to support the collectively agreed idea of this world as definable. Thus the empty breath can sync the apparent tangible world of the outer senses with the abstractness of the inner ones.

Since this makes the abstractness of the inner senses the foundation for the perception of the world experienced with the outer senses, the apparent differences in that world are no longer perceived to make a difference. Consequently, do not know what and you are and thus in a state of not-knowing, which is like floating on clouds of bliss.

The fastest way to not be bothered by speedy thoughts and feelings is to not try to organise them into something harmonious, but have the raw energy of unsuppressed confusion ignite a take-off to the empty breath, which immediately takes you across an invisible bridge to the high-frequency world of the inner senses, from where the speed from the low-frequency world of the outer senses that brought you there does not appear to be stressful but soothing.

Read more about the inner an outer senses in What and where are the inner and outer senses or hack #6-7.3 The inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

In other words, when stress is not suppressed in the world of the outer senses its chaotic energy ignites a take-off to the empty breath, that automatically synchronises the outer and inner senses, so the world of the inner senses become the foundation for how the world of the outer senses is perceived.

And since the world of the inner senses vibrates at a high-speed frequency, the experience of speedy thoughts and/or feelings in the low-frequency world of the outer senses does not seem disturbing when perceived from the high-frequency world of the inner senses. On the contrary. It is like walking on air.

Except for the inner and outer sense of sight, it is the same sensory organs, that pick up the world of the inner senses and the world of the outer senses. The difference between the two worlds is that the data received by inner senses remain relatively unprocessed by the brain, so the world evolving from them appear to abstract and inside, contrary to the world of the outer senses, which consist of the same data processed by the brain into an experience of you as someone definitive in a world outside of you that is defined by time and space. That being said, what the brain receives from the sensory system is nothing. The body is a fantasy, also the aura around it and higher frequencies, and that the brain is making this fantasy that someone is experiencing because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to make or have a fantasy. But within the context of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, this is the fantasy Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is using to expose that everything experienced is a fantasy nobody is making or having. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The differentiation in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings between inner and outer world is not meant to say that they are experienced through two sensory systems. Just that they are two different kinds of experiences: One perceived to be inside and the other to be outside. It is, actually, the info from the same sensory system that the brain claims to process into an inner or outer world, except for the sense of sight. But that is not important in this context.

It has taken the brain one second to produce your current experience of the outer world (read more about that here), so if you go back one second, you get the unprocessed version of being someone who reads this now. At least theoretically speaking.

None of your experiences, however, is based on info coming from the sensory system as the brain claims, and most choose to believe since otherwise, it is evident, that they are not somebody but nobody because all experiences fabricated by the brain is processed from out of nothing. So what you find when going back one second is the nothingness the brain twists into something experienced by someone.

There you also find the empty breath, which is nothingness not processed into something by the brain. A split second before you reach the empty breath, you meet the brains first abstract visions of nothing as if it is something, namely the world of the inner senses. And almost a second later, the brain has processed the abstractness into your current experience of being someone substantial in the tangible world of the outer senses.

When indifferent to the belief in being someone, it feels so good appearing to be that. This is until you are not indifferent to it anymore. Then it feels like hell.

In the connectedness with the empty breath, the world of the inner and outer senses are synced in regards to what and where you appear to be. When walking down the street, you probably do not sense the inner world, although it is from there you perceive the world of the outer, and therefore do not perceive it to be something.

If you connect with the empty breath when you are all on your own, the image fabricated by the brain of you as someone definitive is downplayed, but still in play. Otherwise, there would not be somebody to experience the world of the inner senses and the glimpses of the enlightenment that may come from it. Read here how to have glimpses of enlightenment. Your eyes do not need to be closed for this because while you have such experiences, the world of the outer senses automatically fades out.

Nobody knows if the eyes are closed when the empty breath does not sync the inner and outer world but embraces you in its emptiness so that there is nothing but emptiness. But when returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, there is certainly someone to know that is natural to be just as bad as good in such a world since one must appear to be more than one there.

You cannot experience the abstractness in the world of the inner senses without partly being conscious of the image fabricated by the brain of you as someone definitive. Hence the empty breath synchs the world of the inner and outer senses in such a way that part of you still believe to be someone definitive. The only duality hack that immediately undoes this belief is the enlightenment of that which is one. All other duality hacks have a more gradual approach so that you in a process over time can enjoy the belief in being someone definitive while having it undone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No matter how the connection with the empty breath is experienced, you are in the bliss of nothing. This state of not-knowing, however, cannot last more than 20 minutes, 45 at most,** at a time if you want to return to the conscious experience of being someone because the brain falls into a coma if the ongoing communication with the self it has created stops. See ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

Should you forget to return to the consciousness of being someone definitive, the enlightenment of that which is one set in. Read more about that in hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one. It terminates any experience you ever had of being someone or being in the bliss of nothing, so there is nothing to hide there never was or will be more than that which cannot be experienced, namely that which is one. Most, however, leave a state of not-knowing long time before it is too late to return to the consciousness of being someone.

You do not need to understand the explanations about the inner and outer senses to connect with the empty breath. Nor do you need to understand, you are brought back one second in linear time when you connect with the empty breath. On the contrary. The less you understand, the easier it is, because you connect with the empty breath by not doing anything about how you feel, so its the unedited energy can ignite a take-off to the empty breath. If you try to do it yourself, you enhance the belief in being someone and thus fence of the bliss of being nobody.

If you insist on connecting with the empty breath in your own way and pace, you fence it off, because you are not in charge of anything except how you perceive it.

In other words, you must be willing to go with the flow of the empty breath, which realistically speaking means you should acknowledge that you do not feel ready for that. Here you can read more about how acknowledging not to be willing to have the belief in being someone undone kickstarts the willingness to have it undone.

If you want to connect with the empty breath, do not try to collect data from this article into something meaningful but go with confusion and uncertainty, you may feel from reading it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The new age ideas about being still, centred or whatnot are not gonna help you in regards to taking off to the empty breath. Those ideas are based on excluding something to obtain a specific experience, and there is nothing definitive about the empty breath. Actually, you do not even know when you are connected because it is a state of not-knowing.

Please do not try to construct a perception of what you are reading about the empty breath so that you seem to understand it. There is not something to understand because it is nothing. So stick to being confused. The unedited energy of it will ignite a take-off to the empty breath, so you in one second are filled with the bliss of emptiness.

Any tension in the body or emotion in the psyche will ignite a take-off to the empty breath if you go with the flow of it unedited. This is as easy as going the flow of erotic energy until it explodes and you feel released.

That does not mean, however, that tensions and emotions magically disappear, when connecting with the empty breath. See The purpose of the duality hacks is not to heal the body but the belief that there is someone in it. But due to its indifference to a world of differences, nothing seems disturbing.

The conclusion of this is not that you should stop taking medicine to ease hay fever, for example. It may help you to relax, so you are able not to suppress but face the stress and fear of being attacked and thus can use the energy of this violent experience to ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

Actually, having sex can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, and so can any other intense experience. Feeling depressed works as well, provided there is no attempt to suppress it in order to preserve a special image of yourself as a happy one or to hang onto a sad face so it can be used to make others guilty. Read more about the latter here.

Yet the unedited frustration that this entails can also be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. And so can pain that just like frustration or any other emotion vanishes in the connectedness with the empty breath. Or to be more correct, it is the consciousness of you as someone definitive that stops. Hence there is nobody to be in pain.

A take-off to the empty breath may be experienced to start off in the top of the head by a gentle explosion of accumulated thoughts and feelings perceived as upsetting. This paves the way for the empty breath that greets you by expanding the body with empty space*, so it does not seem to be substantial and therefore not to differ from the nothingness of the empty breath. That is if you do not try to stop or edit thoughts and feelings because that takes off their edge and thus the raw power to ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

In the above take-off, you probably landed inside the operator of the empty breath. See the paragraph of the same name in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?. But it could also have been in the swing of the empty breath. See the paragraph of the same name in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? where you also can read about the other ways of experiencing the empty breath. Physically speaking, it may be experienced to be an engine generating it from the gut or the chest. See To be nobody and yet somebody.

But as the connectedness with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing, there is nobody to know that you are connected with it. Thus the feeling of it, as described in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? and the other articles about the empty breath is based on the memories of it. They pop up when returning from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive.

Should you after having read the above feel confused about what the empty breath is and how to connect with it, do not try to resolve this but go with the flow of the unedited energy of disorientation until it ignites a take-off to the empty breath, and you feel a big smile expanding your body that is showered by a big fountain of joy.

To wonder if indifference brings about the empty breath or it is brought about by the empty breath is like asking, if it is the chicken or the egg that comes first.

There is no right way to feel the empty breath. At first, it may not be felt in the exciting ways described in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?. Actually, it may not be felt at all, because its main attribute is indifference (read more about that here), and that is not a feeling. Yet not feeling the stress, that comes from believing to be someone definitive, is a big relief.

A take-off to the empty breath only works to the extent, that you are not occupied with being or having more in a material, immaterial or spiritual way.

Are you still confused and do not feel any connectedness with the empty breath, check the other articles in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing, or hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone that is more explanatory. You can also read the preface to the empty breath, namely hack #4.2, The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

The more something seems to speed up inside or outside of you without you trying to make sense out of it, the less you experience yourself to be substantial. Hence there is not something preventing the empty breath, which is empty space* to fill you with the bliss of nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A NOTE ABOUT ALEXIUS:
The above way to connect with the empty breath is Alexius has detected from his interaction with it. How that turned into the methods described in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing he does not know. But from testing the take-offs before writing about them, he knows that anything which seems to irritate or excite him can be used to ignite a take-off the empty breath, whether he sits in a bus, walk down a noisy street or whatnot.

Check out Where do the hacks of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings come from, if you want to read more about this.

Consequently, there is no need to repeat a mantra, having positive thoughts, being quiet in special surroundings with special people to take-off to the empty breath. Neither to stop thoughts, actually, they are the fuel for the take-off.

BM7 To set the body free is to set you free [draft]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Facing the sum of mental and/or emotional discomfort in the above way is, of course, much quicker than facing one thought or feeling after the other. Even faster, though, is the enlightenment of that which is one because it erases all experiences, also that of being someone. See hack #6-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

The other duality hacks do the same but over time. Thus you can enjoy the belief in being someone definitive while slowly but surely having it undone. Hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing gives you a taste of how it is to be indifferent to this belief by bringing you into a state of not-knowing and shortly afterwards return you to the consciousness of being someone definitive, but with the memory of that being nothing, so you experience to be in the world but not of it.

This is until that memory takes over completely, so you no more seem to be somebody who can hide there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness. See hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, which is still in the process of being written.

[+] BM5 To be a basic self is to be good enough [DRAFT]

Thanks for passing by. This article is in its very first stages of being written. Alexius is in the process of exploring what to say and how to to do it. You may, therefore, be better off reading another article.

PART 1
The mood you like and perceive to reflect who you are, have been materialised in the body, or rather in the feelings of it, so it can be recalled when sadness seems to come your way. Since you have done the same with emotions, you do not like, but with the purpose of forever hiding them in particular parts of the body, those parts may seem to disturb your favourite mood. That is unless you discard the link you have made between physical and psychological feelings and are willing to be in the emptiness that arises from not your own conditioning to feel something specific. It may seem scary at first, but as you are in a void, there is nothing to link it to. Thus you realise, when there is not something specific, there is not something to cause problems. Thus you are in the bliss of nothing.

Applying the duality hacks, your conditioned expectations to what you should feel are undone, so you can be in the bliss of nothing.

That being said, just like a pencil needs an eraser to undo its scribblings, you need a duality hack to cancel the link you have made between physical and psychological feelings. This could, for example, be the empty breath.** It is not something but nothing, so that is what it sees. In other words, your link is not acknowledged as something, neither is whatever it links, so you are in the bliss of nothing. See hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´, and the bliss of not believing to be someone for more info about the empty breath** and hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing for how to connect with it.

When you react to something, it is not due to what others do or say but how you have conditioned yourself by linking physical and psychological feelings. It is, therefore, not what they say or do you want to go away but how it triggers the pain of this link in you.

When the body is not used to materialise the feelings that you believe establish what you want to be and to hide those feelings not supporting that, it is free from your dictatorship and so are you because then the body is not an instrument for conditioning anymore.

Having conditioned yourself to feel something specific in case of specific events, so the perception of yourself as special is upheld, you always are on the lookout for specific reactions in the body that can confirm this.

This automatically happens when connecting with the empty breath** (or applying one or more of the other duality hacks) because the state of not-knowing that this entails wipes the slate clean, so you return to the conscious experience of being someone as the basic self.* Since the script of the brain cannot be changed – only the perception of it – this does not mean you are free to do what you want, but you are free to perceive the script as it is instead of compulsively making up perceptions that seem to change it to something you have conditioned yourself to believe is better.

Being in sync with the script, you do not try to become happy from being and having something special because you are continuously injected with shots of happiness by the brain for supporting it.

As everything seems the same when being happy, there is no diversity from which you can choose something to be more exciting than something else, and thus no hope of something better to come. You may, therefore, find being in a constant state of happiness to be boring and choose to improve the basic self by making a perception of it in which you seem to be the centre of exciting things as a special self.

This is the end of happiness because now that depends on being and having something special, and it never lasts. But also because the special self is founded on the idea that there must be something better. So no matter what it achieves in being and having, it is never good enough. There must be something better.

Fortunately, the frustration of never finding something better can, if unedited, ignite a take-off to the empty breath,** so you again have the slate wiped clean and return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive as the basic self and thus are injected with shots of happiness. Eventually, you are so happy that there is no more to ask for. Hence the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is undone.

Since that is the whole purpose of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and since being conditioned or not requires more than one, it really does not matter what you are, nor if you are tense or not. Yet it may matter in the process of having the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is undone. Without conditioning and a tense body, the process of it is so much more fun. Fortunately, you can have your cake and eat too. You can keep any conditioning if you perceive it as it is what it is* because then its built-in expectation of a particular outcome is undone, so you are happy no matter what that is or if you are tense or not.

So not need to make it your new purpose to become free of conditioning and tensions or anything else, for that matter. Rather stick to the undoing of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one because there is no conditionings or anything else to get rid as that takes more than one.

INTERLUDE
When you suppress the feelings you perceive to be wrong, the ones seen to be right are excluded as well because, in a world of duality, everything comes in pairs. Since you always look for approval, you do not suppress that. But since it is paired with shame, you cannot help but feel the embarrassment of being an oppressor.

To distance yourself from this feeling, you project it partially on others, your father or boss, for example. But doing so, their approval only seems to be partial. Thus you feel, you are not good enough. If, however, perceiving that as it is what is, it does not result in feeling inadequate. Thus the need to blame somebody for putting you down is gone.

The more you exclude/suppress, the more inadequate you feel. Unfortunately, you probably conclude that to resolve that, you need to eliminate even more. And on it goes, until you are so restricted by your editing of yourself and others that the built-up frustrations ignite a take-off to the empty breath.** It wipes the slate clean, so you perceive everything as it is what it is,* and thus are equally entertained by so-called bad things as good ones.

PART 2
Should the body seems to get better when you feel connected with the empty breath,** it is not due to that – at least not directly – because it does not know of something that needs improvement. Indirectly though it is due to the empty breath.** In its presence, you are not in your default mode of doing something about something, so the body is not disturbed by the perception that you are the master of it.

That the condition of the body is linked to what you think, 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 film is unaffected by the thoughts or feelings you appear to have about it, and it is self-deception when you imagine it has caused them. The movie does not have such powers.

In other words, if you perceive that pain or sickness in the body has been caused by the mind, the soul or something else not physical, it is an idea you project on the body. And this idea can only he corrected where it was conceived, namely in the mental sphere.

Trying to correct it in the body is frustrating because the problem is not there, although it may be felt to be there and there may seem to to be symptoms of it in the body. Unfortunately, this is generally perceived as proof of a connection between the body and mind and/or soul instead of a warning against believing there is such connection.

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 fixes the body, but that it liberates it from the sick ideas you have forced upon it so that the biological system can take care of the body without your interference but maybe with a little help of qualified health care professional. Hence you can correct your ideas where you made them. If you are used to projecting them onto the body, you may, however, have a hard time figuring out what is what. No worries. Joining the empty breath** you see everything experienced as it does, namely as nothing.

When a ball is coming your way, it´s a natural reflex to respond and following such reflexes is pure fun.

When a ball is coming your way, it is an automatic reflex to respond to it. Automatically following such reflexes is natural and invokes the memory of how easy it is when you are nobody. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Sometimes a doctor may check the function of a body by knocking on special points to see if the involuntary movements – also called reflexes – works. But, actually, everything you appear to do in the world where there seems to be more than one is involuntary movements. That is unless you work very hard to make a perception of them so what and where you appear to be looks like it is your choice.

To make the formlessness of that which is you appear as if it is someone special is not easy. It takes many years of going to school plus many special lessons to learn how to exclude what you judge not to be special.

An image of you as someone special is fabricated by postulating automatic reflexes to be of your own choice and suppressing the experience of the natural reflexes not fitting into the image of you, that you want the world to see.

In order to fabricate this perception, the behaviour of automatic reflexes is translating into something, that seems to be an autonomously choice of someone specific. And by learning how to suppress the reflexes, that do not fit into this image of being unique and independent, you become a person who seems to do everything by its own choice, while those judged to be outside of you seem to be doing things against or in favour of you by their choice.

Undoing the belief in being someone special is like taking a step into the unknown – but as life cannot be known, that is exactly where you will find it.

The specific appearance of you that like a puzzle has been put together through trials and error is believed to be separated from what you have decided not to be and thus perceive to be outside of you so that it seems the world consists of you and different individuals living an autonomous life.

When this is believed to be a game that you are playing, it is easy to play along, but when believed to be real, it is hard work, because you always have to suppress the natural flow in order to appear as someone living your own special life at your own pace.

It is so much easier just to go with the flow of the natural reflexes. It also feels so much better, because going with the flow you feel fulfilled, and so you do not need to be someone special. Being nobody is great, because then there is not somebody else – and that is so peaceful.

APPENDIX
The special self does not know its psychological emotions, only what it is supposed to experience if somebody is too late for an appointment, for example, or something else that is bad according to its theories of right and wrong. But this, it does not feel either because. The disappointment or rejection is suppressed in an explanation of being unjustly treated.

Anything explainable is mental and thus not an emotion.

The moment the special self stops justifying these made-up feelings, they are exposed to be as fake as how special you believe to be. Nothing in the script of the brain is about justice, and you cannot be anything else than planned by the brain. Its whole design is about entertainment, and perceiving every feeling as it is what it is,* that is what what you get.

Hence there is no need to avoid giving or receiving emotions to make the world appear as if it is going to be in accordance with the theories you have of a better world. That is why all feelings, though experienced to be different from each other, are perceived to be neutral. So, just like getting wet in the rain does not change what you are, nor does getting angry or glad.

NOTES:

The transparency of bliss comes from not-knowing [draft]

Though new agers believe, that a world where there seems to be more than one is unholy, they worship special people and places in it as if they are holy and not an illusion. This is like believing the most exciting part of a movie is real. It is all make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings come to him as ethereal harmonies. And it is not before he hums along, that the words of
a song of how to undo the belief in being someone definitive rapidly and unorganised are typed on his computer.

When Alexius asks the source of the ethereal harmonies, which he has named Gudruång,** if a specific song is finished, there is no answer. This could be because it takes more than one to answer and there is no more than that which is one, wherefore an answer would enhance the belief that it is possible to be and have more than one, instead of undoing it. That is probably why Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not have any answers, and that their explanations are a load of rubbish. Nevertheless, if you get that they are as absurd as the world where they appear to be, they have fulfilled their purpose, which is to expose the insanity of believing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Sometimes, however, they do not expose the absurdity of this belief. This happens when the flow of words stops and he instead uses some from his default vocabulary. It is a bit like when he speaks Spanish, which is not his native language, and he is out of Spanish words, he tries an English one, in the hope that it is similar. At times it works, but sometimes he times is entirely off.

Maybe that is why he spends much time on fine-tuning Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, and the reason that you are not reading is not the final but the present version of them. Most likely, however, there is no other reason than this fine-tuning is what Gudruång supports.


Alexius is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one because sometimes he forgets what and where he appears to be and thus bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. That does not mean, however, that what he appears be is enlightened, because the enlightenment of that which is one eases all appearances.

Alexius has not realised oneness, neither has anybody else because it takes more than one to accomplish something. For the same reason, although he has bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, he is not enlightened.

But he has vague memories of forgetting what and where he is, so nothing prevents a light brighter than anything else to erase everything he has ever been aware of, including himself as someone definitive, wherefore there is nobody to be conscious of the light being absorbed by a black hole with no beginning and end and thus no shape to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. Here you can read about the ins and out of a black hole.

Thus he is neither in the formlessness of oneness or anywhere else. Yet he appears to be someone who is compared to the enlightenment of that which is one in a world where there seems to be more than one.

There are also others trying to put words together in a song about that which is real versus that which is not. But since most of them have not bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, what they perceive to be real is part of a world where there seems to be more than one and thus not real at all. Hence their song – no matter how beautiful it may appear to be – is just another glorification of separation.

When the special self sees similarities between new age teachings and Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, it is wishful thinking. New Age philosophy is based on the idea, that what you believe to be can be made better, whereas the foundation for Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is, that whatever you believe to be is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This also applies if their song is based on glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one because, just like a movie trailer is not the movie, these glimpses are not the enlightenment of that which is one. See The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it.

That which is one has only one word and as it takes more than one to hear something, it cannot be heard. For the same reason Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings cannot be understood.

But they seem to believe, that a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one and their interpretation of it in combination with secondhand knowledge from ancient scriptures, will make them able to reproduce oneness. However, since it takes more than one to reproduce something, the result is not that which is one but that which is not one. Furthermore, their teaching is based on understanding, and since that calls for more than one, they enhance the belief in being and having more than that which is one, instead of undoing it.

The application of one or more of the duality hacks, on the other hand, do not require any understanding or effort. They apply themselves while reading about them if you do not try to understand them.

In other words, the less you understand, the more you have the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one undone. And since it takes more than one to know or experience something, everything you believe to know, or experience is exposed as make-believe. This includes the brain, or something else is making the experiences, and someone or something is aware of them. Yet you have fun pretending to be someone in a world that is not there – just like playing a game.

A duality hacker is not streaming the construction of thoughts made by the brain to render a world of duality but Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, so they can hack the experiences of duality this flow normally seem to manifest and the duality hacker, therefore, eventually have the belief in being someone definitive undone .

Years ago, Alexius and his sons had much fun playing different board games. By following the flow of the games, they naturally came to an end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
By following the stream of thoughts to the very end, what you appear to finishes there as well. It can be the final end of the body, or just what you have believed to be until then. The latter was what happened to Alexius when he followed the stream of thoughts deep into an ancient forest where he was stuck for two days without food and water. After having been wired up by a helicopter and spending more than a month in hospitals, he did not appear to be a hiker anymore but an Enlightened Non-Teacher (read more about that here).

Finishing the writing of hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough which like the rest of HACK #4 is a new add-on to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings,**** seems to be the end of the stream supporting his writing of the non-teachings. Instead, a stream supporting his basic trait as a storeroom-manager appears to have taken over, so the creativity of writing is replaced with the seemingly more tedious process of refining what already has been written. None of that changes though, he is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one because that is not an appearance.

Nor does it change that Alexius Enlightened Non-Teachings is not his or anybody else’s. The content of them can be compared to water running out of a tap, which in this metaphor is his buddy Gudruång** and Alexius the empty glass that picks it up and shapes it into what you read. The glass does not have to be Alexius. It could be another other empty glass and probably will be when the appearance of Alexius falls apart.

The shape and name of the flow may change, but the flow itself will remain unchanged. It cannot be changed, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one. For the same reason, it is, of course, a metaphor that Alexius is a medium for the flow shaped into his enlightened non-teachings that somebody else read.

But as long as you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, there seems to be more than one involved in the undoing of that belief.

Even though waves have a different length of life and may look like they differ from each other, they all consist of water. As they, therefore, all have the same, none of them has something that can make them more special than others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
On the set out of writing hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, Alexius used other people as role models for the special self, and since they shamelessly declared their egoistic intentions when asked about something, it seemed obvious to use it.

If not perceiving the apparent difference between what is experienced to be you and others to make a difference, you recognise alone together*** that the experience of a physical or spiritual world with different appearances is just as unreal as the experience of you and others as somebody in the world of a dream.

But to be able to feel the special self himself, he had to fabricate perceptions that implied he believed to be one (see also the below epilogue). Hence hack #4.2 and #4.3 are based on experience when he says, you cannot escape this hell of self-discipline that is required to uphold a perception of being special if you are afraid to lose something. And this you are, as long as you believe to be and have something special.

It is also from experience, Alexius says that the special self tries to never be engaged so it can keep up a perception of being in control and others to admire it. He can add, that restoring the basic self does not come from letting go of something, nor avoiding anything or by doing something in particular, but having the willingness to apply the duality hacks.

They expose every experience as nothing so having a headache, being in love and whatnot is not something that fends off the bliss of nothing

In the process of having the belief in being someone definitive undone, the entertainment of the very same belief is beefed up by the duality hacks. The experience of being someone definitive is, therefore, like binge-watching an exciting TV show and feel so entertained by it that you forget what and where you perceive to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To not perceive yourself as somebody, you can, for example, apply hack #4.4 ´The empty breath´, and the bliss of not believing to be someone. Any other duality hack, except the enlightenment of that which is one, takes us to the bliss of not believing to be someone. Hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life does it by turning every experience into a symbol of that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of oneness. Since no appearance, therefore, means something specific,  you are in a state of not-knowing. You can also use a combo of the duality hacks.

It may be appropriate to put in here that applying the duality hacks has nothing to do with the popular concept of letting go because that is a confirmation of you as someone in control of yourself. But it is about the willingness to have the belief in being someone definitive undone. It sets you off on a journey without distance to that which cannot be known.

The duality hacks are not gonna set you free from anything but to everything.

Having this willingness, which you get by admitting you do not have it (read more about that here), the duality hacks naturally apply themselves during or after reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

In the process of doing that, they restore the basic self by wiping out the perceptions that are out of sync with the brain. Thus you have a happy time believing to be someone in the process of having this belief undone.

EPILOGUE:
Alexius has sometimes noticed that those who have had glimpses of enlightenment in retrospect uses the experience to disguise the darkness in themselves so others can perceive them as full of light.

While imitating the special self so he could write about it from experience, he realised that not all of it was an imitation. See also The YOU finger and the three ME fingers. There were leftover parts of darkness that he had hidden from his awareness with the consciousness of light. The description of the special self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough is, therefore, not only based on observations of others but the leftover bits of it that were exposed in himself in the process of writing about the special self.

This is not meant to say that everything heavy or dark belongs to the special self. Since everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, everybody contains darkness and light. Unfortunately, the special self always tries to exclude the part of a pair that it judges to be negative, in this case darkness, so it can appear to be full of light although it does not feel good because it feels incomplete without the darkness. The basic self, on the other hand, feels fulfilled and thus incredibly relaxed because it is inclusive.

***) See hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

****) HACK #3, Not being exclusive but inclusive is, by the way, also an add-on to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. The three original hacks were HACK #1, Pretending to be someone definitiveHACK #2, Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality and HACK #6-7, Inner senses, enlightenment, and glimpses of it. They did not arrive in that order though. The enlightenment of that which is one was the first one.

Sadness comes from being special, happiness from being basic, and bliss from not being [draft]

Everything considered to be a fact is made up by the brain. It is, for example, not a fact that you are reading this. It is something the brain tells you to hide that this and any other experience you believe in having is an illusion that is made by the brain from out of nothing – including the experience of being someone. Just like you are not someone in a dream, and nobody else is there, no matter how it is experienced. Since the only purpose of the experiences the brain produces is to entertain, it fabricates them all in one higgledy-piggledy by the very same organ, regardless the experiences are perceived to be by you or others, real or imaginary, physical or spiritual, dream or movie. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What and where you believe to be is based on experiences made by the brain, which it claims to have processed from what you saw, heard, felt and tasted one second ago, as this is the time it needs to construct a consistent experience which seems to reflect that. Read more about that here. But you did not see, hear, feel or taste anything one second ago. Eyes cannot see, nor can ears hear. And the body is not able to feel or taste something. Read more about the sensory system in Eyes do not see, they translate.

Thoughts do not come from somewhere but nowhere, and they do not seem to manifest something unless they are confirmed to do so by someone who wants to be establish as someone by experiencing them as something.

Your present experience, therefore, is not founded on what you see, hear, feel and taste. It is not based on info coming from those senses, although the brain wants you to accept this as a fact, which you gladly do because otherwise, it is evident that your experiences do not consist of tangible elements but intangible thoughts. And that the substantiality of what and where you believe to be is a fantasy made by the brain from out of nothing.

Whether the experiences in this fantasy are perceived to be yours or others, real or imagined, authentic or fake, knowledge and fact, physical or spiritual, they are processed by the brain in one higgledy-piggledy by the very same organ that views everything it processes as just another construction of thoughts, it needs to shape, so the result seems to be made from something instead of nothing.

You may, for example, have noticed that after watching several movies in a row, their different plots seem to fuse into one continuous story. You may also have tried being sexually aroused or even getting an orgasm in a dream by experiencing to be together with somebody in it, although there is nobody there, neither you.

Being happy, we have no need to perceive the apparent differences in our experiences to make a difference. Thus we are ready to have the duality hacks bring us back to the nothingness from where the brain has processed our experiences of being somebody substantial in a tangible world.

Since every experience that someone is aware of have taken the brain one second to manufacture, the origin of what you believe to be experiencing right now is just one second away (read more about that here). So if you go back one second from your current experience, you return to the nothingness from where the brain fabricated the current experience that seems to be something because you perceive it like that.

If you stay in the perceived gap between nothing and something, the subsequent experiences produced by the brain are not perceived to be something because you are in a state of not-knowing.*

There is no awareness of being someone in this state, so there is not somebody to know that the emptiness of not believing to be someone is pure bliss, until you return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive and the vague memories of that popup.

You may not be in touch with these memories of bliss, though, but just like you wake up feeling refreshed from a deep sleep, regardless you remember your dreams or not, you return to experience the world of something with your slate wiped clean, so you feel renewed. Not as if you are special, though, but basic. You can read more about this after-effect of a state of not-knowing* that may last from a few seconds to many years, in the next article. In this one, we mostly explore a state of not-knowing.*

In a state of not-knowing,* your eyes may be closed or open, and you may be sitting on a bus, resting in a park or walking in a noisy city. Perhaps you talk, and maybe you say nothing. Everything is as it used to be, and thoughts go on as usual since what and where you appear to be is a construction of thoughts.

The physical world looks like before in a state of not-knowing,* but the experience of its appearances are not perceived to be separated from you. That is why it is so blissful. In the case of having glimpses of enlightenment in a state of not-knowing,* which is not uncommon, the experience of the physical world, however, fades out proportionally with the intensity of the glimpses. There is more about that in the next article, where we also look into, why you relatively soon have to leave a state of not-knowing.* Here we touch upon that very briefly.

To keep the brain going, and therefore also what you believe to be, you must repeatedly talk with someone judged to be separated from you. If not doing that for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most,** the brain falls into a coma, wherefore it cannot produce the image of you as someone definitive anymore. It makes no difference to the brain if the conversation seems to be internal or external because both ways confirm its world of separation to be real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If the brain for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most,** is not kept busy by someone who experiences to have a conversation inside or outside of it with somebody judged to be different from itself, it falls into a coma.

In other words, if separation is not continually acknowledged to be real, the brain falls apart, and you not come back to the consciousness of being someone substantial in a tangible world, nor do you continue in the bliss of emptiness because you are neither someone in the fictional world of the brain or beyond it. You have never been someone at all because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to be anyone. Thus you do not appear to hide that this is so.

Most likely, however, you will leave a state of not-knowing* long time before that. And since you are returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive as you originally were meant to be in the fable of the brain, namely as the basic self, you are in sync with the thoughts that the brain constructs. Being that, you support it, and the brain in return helps you with happiness.

Hence you become so satisfied that you do not need anything in particular, and sooner or later gladly apply one or more of the duality hacks so you, again and again, enter a state of not-knowing* for brief moments of bliss, until it gets so intense that you cannot help bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.***

But let us not get ahead of ourselves. You probably go back and forth between the consciousness of being someone definitive and a state of not-knowing* many times before you remain in the latter and bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.***

The duality hacks gladly admit that they nothing, so that applying the empty breath,* for example, there is nothing to perceive the present moment as something. Thus you do not get the frustration of something but the bliss of nothing. Read here how to connect with ´the empty breath´ and here about the bliss not believing to be someone.

While you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. You will not, even for a brief moment, experience oneness. Nor will you experience it when that belief is undone, because then you are no more. Besides, it takes more than one to experience something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you try to return to a state of not-knowing* by replicating the last one, you will not enter it because what you intend to replicate is memories and contrary to a state of not-knowing* they are perceived to be something. If you use second-hand knowledge of special states to get the bliss, you become the special self, and since it is very serious about realising itself and a state of not-knowing* is selfless, you will not enter it.

That is until there is a willingness to forget being someone and thus accept the selfless guidance of, for example, the empty breath.* It resides in a gap between nothing and something that is unprocessed by the brain into an experience of something, so it remains nothing.

Any other duality hack, except the enlightenment of that which is one,*** will also take you back one second to the emptiness from where the brain imagines something that the duality hacks expose as nothing, so you are no longer in the frustration of something but in the bliss of nothing. The duality hacks apply themselves when you keep reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. That is if you do not try to alter them, so they fit into the experiences perceived as something.

Entering a state of not-knowing* only takes a second and happens automatically when you have lost all hope of fixing your problems because that makes the uncontrolled energy of them ignite a take-off to the empty breath* (see hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing).

When there is not something to hope for, you are ready for the bliss of nothing. Read more about hopelessness here, or check the hack ´No Hope = Oneness,´ which you find in Extra Duality Hacks. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is as easy as told, but since we all are in the habit of looking for a solution in the experiences we perceive as something, we may seem to get lost in them and thus feel hopeless. Super! If that is so, you do not see any possibility for a solution to your frustration about something, and, therefore, are willing to have the empty breath* – or another duality hack – bring you back to the bliss of nothing.

As already said, you cannot remain there for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most,** because when the experiences produced by the brain are not repeatedly acknowledged by someone as something, it falls into a coma.

Hence you must either return to the consciousness of being someone definitive or have this experience as well as being in the bliss of nothing terminated.*** As this also is the end of the one who is aware of being someone, there is no consciousness to hide that which cannot be realised, namely that which is one, since it takes more than one to be aware of something.

Sadness comes from the perception of you as a master and bliss from the perception of you as nothing. Happiness is the after-effect of the latter. Oneness, however, has no effect, nor is it caused by something, as that requires more than one. And since being sad, happy or blissful calls for more and oneness is formless and therefore endless, any kind of being is an illusion.

Your special perception of the world divided into good and evil makes you feel lonely because they are based on you being better than others and thus separated from them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

EPILOGUE:
Most look for something outside of themselves, love, massage or whatnot, to make them feel good. But what they experience to be outside is made inside of them, namely in the brain, which does not differentiate between inside or outside, as there is nothing outside of it and thus nothing to define something inside of it.

Hence all the experiences that it produces does not seem tangible unless there is someone who believes in feeling them, and as what you appear to be also is a fiction of the brain, you gladly confirm that the experiences produced by it are tangible because that seems to establish you as substantial and thus to be real.

That is why the experience of you as someone in a tangible world only can only be exposed as a hallucination when you are willing to have the belief in being someone undone. If having that, keep reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Do not, however, expect them to save you or give you something, because it takes more than one to do so and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. But as they, therefore, do not result in something but nothing, they automatically hack the belief in being something.

Hack #6-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one does that once and for all. The hack you are reading, hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, takes it time in doing that. It helps you to not be a special but a basic self, so you can enjoy the belief in being someone while having it undone

NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, which is still in the process of being written.

The basic self is relative to the brain and thus without an egoistic drive [draft]

Dialogue is avoided by the special self. It prefers monologue because it ratifies the feeling of being someone who is in charge. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you perceive yourself to not be basic but special, you constantly look for somebody you can manipulate into ratifying this (read more about that here). That is why you constantly need to be with somebody and have a calendar full of appointments. But as closeness may reveal the misery behind your story of being special, you prefer to follow the conventional rules of being together. For example at a traditional dinner party. It is set up so as if it is about being together, but if you adjust to the table manners you do not risk being close to anybody.

The basic self, on the other hand, has no need to be acknowledged as special. Hence it does not try to fit into the collectively agreed concepts of how to be together, nor does it use these concepts to manipulate others to do and say something that attests to its importance. It has no need to be important or something else than a tool for the brain.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self expects others not to question its story of greatness but to adapt to it so they appear to be ordinary and itself to be original. This is a way to hide that it feels inferior.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Those who believe that they are special and independent beings with a free will are easily manipulated by one of the worlds many doctrines of how to be spiritual, socialistic, capitalistic or whatnot because they think they cannot be manipulated.

More importantly, a human, just like a car, functions by following the commands it gets and as those perceiving themselves to be special avoid to follow the natural impulses coming from the brain, they are bound to follow one of the worlds many speculative doctrines instead. Or rather to perceive that they do so because, just like a car, they cannot choose the direction themselves. They are bound to follow the driver, namely the brain.

Yet, unlike a car, a human has a consciousness that is free to perceive the direction as it sees fit, so in the case of the special self it makes a perception, where everything that does not fit into the concepts of socialism, for example, are excluded and it, therefore, seems to be following that and not the brain.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self is always trying to escape something, but it does not know what. Neither will it ever know, because there is nothing to escape. It is an illusion that only seems real because it always looks for something to exclude, so it can appear to be more special. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Having one´s perception in sync with the stream of thoughts as it comes from the brain is like having the brain blown out for any unnecessary thought. It feels like being wholly absorbed by a TV show after having binge-watched it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To serve the brain is not a choice, because what you believe to be is the brain and what you experience as others is a creation of it, so there is nothing else to serve.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since the basic self does not perceive itself to be different from the brain, and since everything it experiences to be, see, think and feel is made by the brain, the basic self does not belong to anyone but everyone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If one’s perception is in sync with the flow of thoughts coming from the brain, experiences seem relative. Not being in sync with that flow, they appear to be definitive. The former results in feeling free and the latter in feeling imprisoned.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Watching a TV show, the brain is in its right element, which is to continually pass remarks and predict what comes next as if the show is not fictional but real. When not doubting or altering these comments but going with the flow of them, you are also in your right element, namely to be a follower of the brain. Being that, you do not perceive to be different from it because the brain contains the sum of your most significant memories, and that is what you believe to be. Hence you are not just a follower but a leader as well.

As it takes more than one to experience something, the brain renders a world where there seems to be more than one so it can entertain those appearing to be there by experiencing to be someone there. There is not something deeper to learn or attain, because it is all a fantasy – including that a brain renders something that someone experiences as well as there is anybody making this fantasy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not being in your right element, however, you always search for something special to follow that will make you feel better. Maybe you imagine a specific school of thought will help you peel off the layers that prevent you from being more authentic and thus in your right element. But no matter what you believe to be, it is only experienced to be so, because thoughts, like a binary code of nothing, are put together in a perception of yourself that seem to manifest that.

This is not to say that following the brain is more real. Everything experienced is make-believe. Just like to be someone in a role-play. However, following the instructions of the game master, that can be quite fun. Likewise, believing to be someone in a world defined by time and space is quite entertaining when you do not add or subtract something from the instructions you get from the brain.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self is not a definitive entity but relative to the brain and, therefore, without an egoistic drive. The special self is also relative to the brain but not without ego, because contrary to the basic self, it makes a perception of the thoughts coming from the brain as if it is in charge of them and consequently of itself.

It is a wonder though, how it can go on believing this because it is not even able to control ´its´ thoughts via meditation but needs alcohol, sex and drugs, for example, to make them go away from its awareness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you make a perception of the thoughts coming from the brain that seems to make you more important than the thoughts imply, you are not in sync with the brain. If you insist your perception is correct, the thoughts coming from the brain do not make you a happy but stubborn self. Instead, perceiving the thoughts of the brain as suggestions to how you can respond to something, they do not seem to make you definitive. Thus you remain relative to the brain, which is the nature of the basic self.

Alexius, for example, basically is programmed to organise. This does not mean, however, that the brain expects him to do it in the rigid way of society, where everything is organised in squares and straight lines. It is only those, who have disconnected themselves from their basic nature, which is to have a perception in alignment with the brain, that needs to organise everything, so they appear to live by the right rules (read more about that here).

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not make up a perception that avoids, corrects or replace the script of the brain, you confirm that you miss nothing and that the script supplies you with everything you need. Thus you feel safe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being relative, the basic self does not perceive itself to be constant, but whatever is best to be to get a loan, for example. The special self, on the other hand, needs to stick to its image of being someone definitive, and convince the bank that it is special enough to get a loan.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self never gets disappointed by somebody because they are not the ones perceived to be the reason for what it is going on. The brain is, and as it always rewards the basic self with happiness for making a perception that relates to the experiences it produces as they are and not as they could be, the basic self has no reason to be disappointed. Especially because it does not expect anything but what the brain has planned.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, the basic self is everyone and no-one. As it, therefore, is relative, there is no self to doubt, whereas the special self, which insists on being someone definitive always has doubts about itself.

That is probably why it likes to show off as self-assured and in a wise fashion point out there must be a real self choosing between being the basic or special self. It is, however, only within the reality of a world where there seems to be more than one, there appears to be a choice. But there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, so such a world is not real. It is like a dream. There is nobody in it.

When there is nothing to hope for, what you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is no more, because it is built on the hope that there is more than that which is one.

In other words, regardless of what you believe to be, you are nothing and therefore not something to hope for. That is why the reading of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings works for you if it seems to result in a consuming sense of hopelessness. See also the hack No Hope = Oneness, which you can find in Extra Duality Hacks.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you really feel something you are nothing but that. Consequently, there is nothing else to contrast what you feel and thus not something to define you. That is why most avoid to really feel something by mentally understanding and/or justifying the feeling. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In a state of not-knowing,* every sound is an entirely new experience because there is nobody going down memory lane to find a comparable experience, so it is not shaped by the past. The same applies to sights, feelings, and tastes.

This is not something you are aware of though, and you will never know if it is so because you are in a state of not-knowing.* Yet it seems likely because this state is over when you search your memory bank for something to help you categorise what you hear, see, feel or taste.

Yet, the after-effect of it is that what you categorise into something is synced with the nothingness of a state of not-knowing, so although you experience to be somebody, you know you are not.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The duality hacks do not detach you from feelings. They may seem more distant when you are in a state of not-knowing* but when you return from that to the consciousness of being someone definitive, they seem very close. Since they are no longer perceived as something but nothing, you enjoy the intimacy of nothing, regardless it takes the shape of sadness or happiness. In other words, you are indifferent to the supposed difference between the contrasts making up a world of duality and thus to the belief in separation.

Should you forget that feelings are not something but nothing and focus on the apparent tangibility of them, the worries that this seems to cause can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath,* provided the anxiety is unedited. And since this brings you back into a state of not-knowing,* where there is nobody to judge the apparent differences in the world of duality to make a difference, the slate is wiped clean, so you return to the consciousness of being someone definitive in a such a world, based on the sense that nothing there makes a difference. Thus it all seems entertaining.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If the special self perceives somebody to be stupid, it is most likely meant to condemn them. When the basic self, on the other hand, has the same perception, it is not to condemn somebody but to avoid a relationship that the brain instructs you to avoid. In other words, it is a way to respect the signals of the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Extraordinary experiences, for example glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, seem to be at a premium for the special self. Yet it seldom experiences anything but the ordinary, because to prevent its special image from cracking, it fences off unfamiliar experiences.

If something uncontrollable, like glimpses of enlightenment, should enter into the controlled world of the special self, it will ignore it, wait for it to be over, then suppress the memories of it, and resume life as it used to perceive it.

If a glimpse of enlightenment accidentally slips through a crack in its armour of specialness, the special self immediately compares the unfamiliar experience to familiar memory, so the unknown becomes well-known and therefore seems to confirm what it believes to be.

You can read about how to have glimpses of enlightenment in Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Binge-reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings you become a basic self who happily reads until it forgets to perceive itself as someone reading something and, therefore, enters the bliss of not knowing what and where it is. That is until it forgets to return from this state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone and thus remains selfless so long – more than 20 minutes, 45at most** – that nothing appears to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

This does not happen step by step as that requires more than one. For the same reason, it does not happen at all. Nor has you ever been someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, which is still in the process of being written.

The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be known, but glimpses of it can

People have very strange ideas about the enlightenment of that which is one. Some think it is being pure love or consciousness, or the ability to see through all illusions. But since seeing or being something requires more than one, the enlightenment they are dreaming about is not the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Most of those writing or talking about the enlightenment of that which is one try to give the impression, that they know what it is, so if you have chosen to believe their so-called knowledge, you may dismiss the enlightenment of that which is one, if it hits you, because it has nothing to do with anything anybody claim to know. Enlightenment of that which is one is formless so it cannot be described or defined. If you try, you will remain as someone definable, and so it is not possible to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

In other words, if somebody refers to experiences of enlightenment, it is not the enlightenment of that which is one, because it cannot be experienced. Yet it might be glimpses of it because just like you can use your senses to experience a world that appears to be outside of you, you can turn them inwards in order to experience a world with glimpses of enlightenment.

If you tend to sense the world in an auditory way, turning the senses inwards may not reveal visual glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one but auditory ones, so instead of a revelation of light, it is a revelation of ethereal harmonies. Just like the outer senses also can feel and taste, so can the inner ones.

In other words, there are the same different ways to experience the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, as there are to experience the world when senses are partly turned inwards. If they are fully turned inwards, the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome. This is not an experience, though, as it takes more than one to experience something.

Read more about this in the articles Beyond the senses – or the outer senses versus the inner ones, The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can and The ins and outs of the inner senses. Check out Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment, if you want to learn how to open the inner senses to glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one.

A staircase seems to make you feel, that there is something on top to be experienced.

A staircase implies there is more on top so if you go up there, you feel that you experience more and therefore are more alive. But in reality, you cannot be more alive. It takes more than one to be or have more, and since life is oneness and it is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The purpose of feelings is to make it seems as if there is more than than that which is one, although it is formless and therefore endless, wherefore there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

In other words, in reality, it is not possible to feel anything at all. Likewise, there is not something to experience. That is why the enlightenment of that which is one can neither be felt or experienced. It is that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When the sun is shining sharp and bright, it reveals, if my windows are well cleaned or not – it shows all the things, I usually do not see. This is contrary to the light of the enlightenment of that which is one. Although it can be said to be brighter than thousands of suns, it reveals nothing. There is not anything to see and no need to see something. Not because it fulfils you, but because you as someone definable is no more. There is nothing but the light of that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

So many claims to know the way to that which is one, but none of them goes there. Could it be because they are still trying to heal, fix and improve what they believe to be instead of undoing the belief in being someone at all?

When that is undone, there is not someone to go to that which is one. Thus no way is needed.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has vague memories of it, whereas others have nothing but speculations.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To be in the world and not of it does not mean, the world looks more dreamy, transparent or lucid. The world is a concept, that always looks the same, unless you do not change the concept via for example drugs or Photoshop like in the case of this pic. To not be of the world is like, – within this context of the world – that when you play a game like Monopoly, you know, you are in it but not of it.

To be in the world and not of it does not mean, the world looks more dreamy, transparent or lucid. It can be compared to playing a game like Monopoly. You know, you are in it but not of it. But whether you know this or not, Monopoly looks the same. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The enlightenment of that which is one does not change anything – except that you know, the world is pure fiction. This also includes ideas of god, love, higher self, ego, and you name it. Well, enlightenment also makes it easier to live in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Because when you know none of it is real – neither you as a person in it – there is no need for questions or answers. You are free to step on it and play the game of pretending to be a person ´there´.* Someone once put it more or less like this: To be in the world and not of it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot know the enlightenment of that which is one, and that is why hardly anybody is enlightened. They try so hard to know and understand – and so they fail, because in regards to the enlightenment of that which is one everything you seem to know is wrong!

The unenlightened likes to teach others the way to enlightenment, but the enlightened knows there is no way.

Books and lectures may seem to provide some understanding about the enlightenment of that which is one, but the more you think you understand, the further away you are from it. The same applies if you think you understand it after reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. They are not meant to be understood, but to help you to unlearn everything, you have learned.

The enlightened does not care to appear spiritual or anything else, as to be something requires more than one. But to the unenlightened it is very important appearing to be spiritual, so even though the enlightened and the unenlightened knows just as much about the enlightenment of that which is one, namely nothing, the unenlightened show off as if knowing so much.

You cannot bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one by wanting it, but by not wanting to be of the world. It erases everything you know so that there is literally nothing left for the light to carry through a black hole into that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one does not result in something. It has absolutely no effect, as that would require more than one.

Just the smallest definitions of the enlightenment of that which is one break it up in specific elements that each has a beginning and end – and as it cannot be broken, you have fabricated another illusion to fence it off. So do yourself a favour: Forget all that you think, you just read. Forget, what and where you believe to be, so that there is no belief blocking out the enlightenment of that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When the sun shines on a window, it reveals many things, that one may not have seen before. The enlightenment of that which is one reveals nothing. It does not shed its light on anything, as that requires more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings presents no definition of the enlightenment of that which is one, as it is not of the world a world where there seems to be more than one, and therefore cannot be figured out. There is not someone definable in the enlightenment of that which is one, so there is nobody to picture it.

Nobody sees it. Yet if you return to a world where there seems to be more than one as a visually minded person, you may have vague memories of a light brighter than thousands of suns as it is described in the Bhagavad Gita. Neither is there anybody hearing it, but if you are an audio minded person, you may have vague memories of ethereal harmonies with sounds that can be compared to bells and harps. See the article What sort of external music resembles the internal one.

And even though there is nobody to feel the enlightenment of that which is one you may as an emotional minded person have vague memories of a feeling that can be compared to the sensation of thousands of bubbly Coca Colas mixed into one bubble. This is actually what the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises. Also, it is not something you taste. Yet there may be vague memories of thousands of smoothies mixed into one taste of milk and honey with a hint of strawberries or liquorice.

As the enlightenment of that which is one is what undoes the belief that there is more than one, it is not mixing its different aspects, but using the one that is most appealing to you, so do not fight it when all the thoughts collected to witness you as someone definitive is extracted and the nothingness of you is sucked into that which is one.

Since the world, in general, focuses on seeable effects, the visual aspect of the enlightenment is the most known. The other features, however, are about the same. They all make you forget to focus on something definable so you as nobody can follow the flow of them into the formlessness of that which is one.

Whatever aspect of the enlightenment you naturally are attracted to follow depends on your preferences as someone definitive. The goal, though, is not to see, hear, feel or taste the enlightenment of that which is one. It cannot be experienced since there is no more than that which is one, and it takes more than one to experience something. For the same reason, there is no goal at all.

Please be aware, that if for example somebody has never seen a carrot, and it is described as having a colour like a colourful sunset, this does not mean, a carrot has anything to do with as a sunset. It is common sense.

But when it comes to the enlightenment of that which is one most seem to forget common sense and make strange conclusions, so to spell it out: Any description of the enlightenment of that which is one in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, is just that, namely a story. And like a carrot is not a sunset, the visual aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one in a light brighter than thousands of suns, but the intensity of it can be compared to that.


*) One way to not be of the world is to pretend to be ´there´ because where you pretend to be, you are not. Read about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #6-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can.

Everything takes more than one, when you believe there is more than one

It takes two to define a person in the world.

PART 1:
It takes two to become enlightened. »When your eyes become single your whole body shall be full of light«, Jesus said. And it takes two to appear as someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

It takes two to make a difference. Both the positive pole and the negative one is needed to produce electricity.

It takes two to see, that differences do not make a difference.

Everything in a world, where there seems to be more than one. requires the involvement of at least two appearances. You cannot appear to be someone without being defined by someone appearing to be different, and there cannot be a world without someone to define it.

In reality, there is no more than that which is one, but as the world where you appear to be is based on the idea that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, to come back to reality you have to start off as if you are more than one.

The person you appear to be in the world cannot be in the virtual world of a game like Super Mario, so to participate in it you pretend to be there. That, however, does not make the virtual world – or your appearance there – real. On the contrary, what and where you pretend to be you are not.

In the same manner, nothing can make the oneness of that which is you real in a world where there seems to be more than one. That which is you is not ´there´. It is something you pretend and no matter how good you are at it and whatever you pretend to be it is not real – this includes pretending to be spiritual, Buddha and whatnot.

No words like higher, realised and spiritual, that seem to value you as someone more evolved and better than others, will make you into anything else than what you already is in the world where there seems to be more than one, namely an illusion.

If you pretend to be a black car in the world of Monopoly, what you pretend to be is an illusion regardless you go to prison, own many houses or not. There may be many changes in a game, but it does not change, that you are not there. You only appear to be there. Neither does anything change if you pretend to be the white car instead.

To bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, when appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you must overlook the differences of its appearances. Not by perceiving them as one. On the contrary. Separation – and not oneness – is the nature of the world.

So if you see them one by one without focusing on anyone, in particular, their apparent differences make no difference, and as they become the same so do your two eyes and as one eye they fill your whole body with light.

This is a poetic description of the enlightenment of that which is one. Practically speaking it may be more correct to say, that when differences make no difference you do not need the function of two eyes, which is to make the world dimensional. One eye – often referred to as the third eye and energetically speaking located on top of the eyebrows in between the two eyes – is enough for the enlightenment of that which is one, because oneness has no dimensions.

In other words, the enlightenment of that which is one is not possible with two eyes. They must be closed so that the dimensional world experienced with the external senses is not seen. Well, it is not so much the eyes that must be closed, but your attention towards the world they seem to see.

In the enlightenment of that which is one, there is literally nothing to see. If there is, you have not been blinded the brightness of the enlightenment of that which is one, but fenced it off so all what you get is glimpses of it, which often is confused with the enlightenment of that which is one.

Many so-called spiritual teachers claim, that there is a real you to be revealed, when you get rid of the ego. But as it requires more than one to get rid of something, and as there is no more than that which is one, getting rid of anything is an illusion.

Most of those, who talk about enlightenment does not know what it is. They are just as eager as everybody else in the world of the outer senses to be acknowledged as someone definitive, so even though the only cause of suffering is the belief in being someone definitive, their teachings are not about undoing this belief, but getting rid of the ego, the past, the future and whatnot.

The world of the outer senses consist of one percent energy and 99 per cent empty space. In other words, there is nobody there.

It is very beautiful with the light of the sun coming through the clouds, but it has nothing to do with enlightenment. It is just another sight in the world, that is just as virtual as the so-called egoless states the gurus and their followers are dreaming about.

It is very beautiful with the light of the sun coming through the clouds, but it has nothing to do with enlightenment. It is just another sight produced by the senses to make your excitement about proving you are someone real in a world, that actually is nothing but make-believe. The same applies to the excitement of the so-called egoless states the gurus and their followers are dreaming about. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

They tell you, that your suffering will stop when their teachings have transformed you into someone better and more spiritual. But as being transformed requires more than one, it enhances the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one instead of undoing it.

Gurus are no different from you, though they like to show off as if they have a higher consciousness. But to have something requires more than one – and there is no more than that which is one.

The idea that enlightenment results in you being wiser, at one with everything, without thoughts or detached from them is solely speculative – an idle hope that the fabrication of such a super person based on the illusion of being someone specific will prove that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one does not result in anything. Least of all being at one with everything because in reality there is no more than that which is one and therefore nothing to be at one with. Besides results are of a world experienced by the senses and the enlightenment of that which is one is not. It cannot be sensed, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to sense something.

t1larg.laptop.light.tsPART 2:
The visual aspect of enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to closing all apps on a computer including the one simulating the desktop. Without the appearance of a desktop, there is nothing to hide the light, that is used to simulate a world on the screen.

The aspect of enlightenment of that which is one, that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises, can be compared to the humming from the fan or the engine in a computer. You can hear this vibration all the time – especially if you do not look at the screen or listen to the sounds of the world simulated by the computer.

Though the light behind the desktop and the distant humming are the means for fabricating a simulated reality on the computer screen, they are not part of this simulated world, so if you want to see or hear what is powering the world that appears on the screen, you must do what is needed to stop that world.

This is a metaphor to say that you have to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one in order not to hide the enlightenment of that which is one, that is already there.

PART 3:
The apparent power of the ego comes from the mutual agreement, that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one. But as any belief requires more than one and therefore enhances the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, believing to be on a spiritual path is to follow what one is supposed to escape, namely the ego.

Alexius is the non-teacher of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, but he is also its non student – and vice versa. No others are needed in order to undo of the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Yet being and having more than that which is one is not possible, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one. It seems, however, possible to believe that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of oneness and that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. In order to hold this belief together, everybody must agree to it, because it only takes one to undo the belief that there is more than that which is one.

When believing to be someone definitive, you all the time need the experience of others. Whether they appear to be in an online, physical or astral world does not actually matter, because the experience of them is manufactured by the brain, that is conditioned in accordance with the belief, that you are someone definitive.

If you need time to process this, you consent to the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, because processing something as well as taking your time requires more than one. For the same reason, there is no support to get in undoing the belief, that there is more than that which is one.


NOTES:

Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one knows nothing but that there is no more than that which is one

thegrandview1

It is very easy to meet the requirement of the enlightenment of that which is one, as all it requires is that you do not know what and where you are, and this nobody knows. That is unless you hide this by being exclusive instead of inclusive because by excluding something, you seem to be defined as someone definitive, who autonomously can decide what and where to be. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

PART 1:
Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one knows, there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. Most others think there must be more.

This does not mean that someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one knows about heaven or nirvana, how to unite with atman or god, be full of bliss or to transcend the self and whatnot. For someone like that, it seems like a waste of time to obtain such states of mind, as to know, unite, transcend or be something requires more than one and therefore remains within the illusion of a world where there seems to be more than one.

In that context someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one prefers googling for how and where to get good food, clothes and other practical things, that make it more comfortable to pretend being in a world where there seems to be more than one a world, instead of trying to escape it by learning about kundalini, states of bliss and whatnot. Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one knows, there is nothing to escape, because there is no more than that which is one.

Being grounded, wise or anything else are not attributes of someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, because someone like has no need to be anything specific.

Therefore someone like that does not care for abstract ideas of nirvana, higher states of consciousness and whatnot. And when using words like ego, personality, duality, non-duality and oneness, it is without knowing what they are. Words are just something that has been learned in order to be able to communicate in a world where there seems to be more than one and not to promote itself as someone special.

Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one takes part in the world where there seems to be more than one in the same way that a televison takes part in it. Whatever is receives it plays out. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one does not feel alienated, when taking part in a world where there seems to be more than one, because someone like that does not believe to be there, as there is no more than that which is one. Yet someone like that is not taking part in the world in order to be or to have something. Actually, someone like that does not know that there is something to be or have, because all what is known is that there is no more than that which is one. This is not the same, however, as that which is one is known. It cannot be known, as it takes more than one to know something.

Yet someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has no idea about what the world is, as it is in the eye of the beholder, and what is behold cannot be trusted. It is all make-believe.

Neither does someone like that knows the formlessness of that which is one, because it takes more than one to know something. Yet someone like that knows what everybody else in a world where there seems to be more than one also know, namely that such a world is unreal. But even though it has not been possible to verify the creation of the world and Quantum Physics basically says, it does not exist unless you look at it, most suppress that what they see is make-believe.

In other words, most things said and done in the world is based on denial, whereas the foundation for what someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one seems to say and do is that a world where there seems to be more than one is not real, because there is no more than that which is one.

Consequently, there is nobody writing this, and therefore no personality with a need to fabricate a consistent article written by someone special. This does not mean that there is no personality because in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is as necessary as the body. Yet there is nobody identified with the personality, neither the body.

Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has, like everybody else, its own personality. But unlike everybody else, it is not definitive but relative. In other words, the personality can, just like the hands of the body, for example, be used in many ways, as there is no attachment to a special expression of it  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The personality, however, still carries out its duty, namely to collect info that seems to prove, the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is real. But as there is no identification with the personality, the apparent differences that it points out in the world are met with indifference. Hence they do not make a difference, and separation makes no sense. In other words, there is no more than that, which is one.

This is not something that has been realised by someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. Not knowing and yet knowing that there is no more than that which is one is a natural state of someone like that.

PART 2: Someone who is not to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to someone who is online all the time. The light of the sun is never seen – only the light of the screen is seen. Likewise, you never see the light from that which is one, when you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. All the light you see in such a world is artificial, no matter where it seems to come from because such a world is not real.

Actually, all light that can be seen is an illusion, because it takes more than one to see something and there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. Therefore the light from that which is one is not something you see, neither is it something you become, as that also requires more than one.

To not see and neither be the light of that which is one, you must be willing to undo the belief in being someone at all. Forgetting what and where you are or not caring about more accomplishes this.

Inclusiveness results in nothing, because without the exclusion of something, you cannot be defined. Not being definable there is nothing to hide the formlessness of that which is you.

The more you include, the less you appear to be separated but alone together, which is the obvious way back to the formlessness of that which is one, as this is how you imagined to leave it. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

You are defined as someone definitive by what you do not like in yourself and therefore exclude by projecting it on others. In other words, it is the exclusion of something from what you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, that defines you as someone definitive there.

From this follows that if you do not exclude anything but include everything, you are not defined as someone definitive, neither is there no more for you to become or have, and so there is nobody to believe that you are someone definitive.

Theoretically speaking everything can be included right now. Yet you may want to take it slower and do it along the way, because the more the belief in being someone definitive is undone, the less you suffer from it, and so you are able to enjoy the excitement of this belief while having it undone.

You cannot fail when practising inclusiveness. If you forget to include something, you include your forgetfulness. And if you think, it is a sin to forget something, you include being a sinner.

Nothing has to be changed or made better to make inclusiveness work. It is very simple. You can never do it wrong because if you do, you include that.

You can also have the belief in being someone definitive undone in a similarly smooth way by having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one (see the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment) or connecting with the empty breath (see hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing).

There are many ways to a state of not-knowing and its bliss of emptiness. All the duality hacks except for the enlightenment of that which is one takes you there. There is no way, however, to the enlightenment of that which is one, as that requires more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The last two approaches require you to open up to the world of the inner senses, but if you prefer to remain in the world of the outer senses while slowly but surely having the belief in being someone definitive undone, you stick to inclusiveness as described above. See hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

Another approach that also sets off from the world of the outer senses is to pretend to be in it instead of believing to be there (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation) or to perceive everything as a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience them (see hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life or simply be what you already are as someone definitive, namely alone together (see hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one).

If you do not want to take it slow but to have the belief in being someone definitive undone in less than no time, you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. See HACK #6-7, Inner senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it.

Apart from the enlightenment of that which is one, the above approaches overlap each other. Basically, they all lead to what in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is called a state of not-knowing, which after-effect is perfect moments. They are not perfect in the sense that there is nothing wrong, but that everything right and wrong or whatever is perceived as it is what it is, so nothing is right or wrong.

The best of the above approaches to use is the one that suits you the most. If it changes from day-to-day, that is the way to go for you. Alexius follows the empty breath, which like an automatic gear shift between the above approaches, that makes you indifferent to the apparent differences of a world where there seems to be more than one.

All that being said about ways, the formlessness of that which is one is everything, because what is formless is endless. Hence a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, including any way out of it. So to fully undo the belief in such a world, the way you appear to go must be undone as well.

Alexius is not full of light, but of nothing, as there is nothing else than that which is one and it takes more than one to be Alexius. Yet in a world where there seems to be more than one he is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Though Alexius is someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, he does not know what it is. So if you after having read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings have the impression that he knows something, you may have fooled yourself into thinking, that he believes he as someone definitive is making them.

Alexius does not believe to be someone definitive.  It is just something he pretends to be, and what he writes while pretending this is not something he has devised. As a vessel, he simply types what he receives without trying to understand it.

There is not something to understand in regards to the enlightenment of that which is one, as what is understandable has a beginning and an end, whereas that which is one is formless and therefore endless. That is why the enlightenment of that which is one does not supply you with a higher understanding but simply leaves you with nothing.

It is also why there is nothing outside of it, neither you, Alexius or his non-teachings. This is not to say that you, Alexius and his non-teachings are inside of it. What is formless has no sides, so there is no inside. Besides, it takes more than one to be somewhere.

It cannot be known what the enlightenment of that which is one is, because it requires more than one to know something, and all that it reveals is that there is no more than that which is one. Consequently everything you seem to know about it is wrong.

In other words, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings does not point to the formlessness of that which is one, as there is nothing outside of it. Furthermore, formlessness takes up no space, so there is nothing to point to.

You may think that what can be seen is real, but it is the other way around, only that which cannot be seen is real, because reality is the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness has no dimensions it is invisible.

But Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings point to the experience of you, Alexius, his non-teachings and anything else conceivable as an illusion, because it takes more than one to experience something and there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

»The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.« Jesus about enlightenment, Matt 6:22, King James Bible.

Alexius body is not full of light, neither is he the way, as Jesus supposedly claimed that he was. The enlightenment of that which is one is formless, so it cannot fill a body defined by time and space. Also it takes at least two and not one to fill something with something.

For the same reason there is no way leading to the enlightenment of that which is one. No worries. It is not needed, because that which is one is formless, so it never ends and consequently cannot be left. Hence there is no Alexius or anybody else to enlighten.


NOTES: In a world where there seems to be more than one, it seems there is a lot to learn about how to function there. In that context, Alexius knows something, for example how to type and publish Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings on the web. Yet he does not use his worldly knowledge to make him appear as if he is special, but as a means to undo the belief in being someone at all.

In the context of spirituality, Alexius knows nothing, because spirit is the formlessness of that which is one. This article is written in that context.

This article is part of hack #6-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can.

The sun does never go up and down – it is a deception

_IGP4777_78_79_80_81-Edit

The sun does not go down, things do not get smaller in the horizon, and the Earth is not flat, even though it looks like that from the perspective of someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one is as alone as can be. Well, everybody is, even though they try to cover it with a full calendar and whatnot. The enlightened though has nothing to cover, because there is no ´I´ with a need to appear as if it is together with somebody special or part of something greater.

Yet the enlightened is superb in regards to relating to others because relating – just like anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one – is perceived as a symbol of oneness. In that sense, all relations are the same. Consequently the enlightened has no need to be involved in a specific relation and therefore can tune into the needs of any relation and be its missing piece.

But there is no urge to make any relation last, neither is there any fear of its end, which is bound to come – especially as the reason for others to be in a relationship is to be part of something special, so they expect to be missed, and the enlightened never miss anything.

A journey without distance
When persons seem to leave the enlightened, he/she does not perceive it as being left – just like the sun is not gone, when it seems to go away at night. It is in the same place, whether it appears to go up or down. It is the earth, that is moving.

The enlightened knows, that if others are experienced to leave, it only seems so because the enlightened itself is moving – or rather imagine to move because the enlightened is not in a world where there seems to be more than one. What is real cannot be in an illusion – just like within a world where there seems to be more than one it is not possible for a person to be in the virtual world of a video game. Yet it is possible to imagine being there.

To imagine something does not make it real though, so if others seem to leave the enlightened because he/she imagine moving in the world, nothing has changed. Just like nobody is leaving you in a dream and you are not going anywhere, because all the time you are in your bed. Likewise, that which is one is still the same and will always be, regardless of what seems to happen in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one is on a journey without distance.

Being on a journey without distance requires the unenlightened to think so he/she can figure out what to do and where to go. The enlightened, however, does not need to think, because nothing is needed on that a journey, as that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no nowhere to go since that requires more than one.

Even though in a dream you may sense, that it´s a dream, you can only see the dream. The dream must be terminated to see the dreamer.

Even though you as an appearance in a dream may sense, it is not real, you cannot see what is real. You can only see the dream and not the one dreaming it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Gurus and others talking about silence, inner peace and bliss are trying to seduce you into believing, that they know how to find shelter from the world – or how to transcend it. But how can they claim, there is something to find in a world, they also say is an illusion or a dream? Everything found in a dream is of course equally illusionary, no matter if it seems to be found inside or outside of an appearance there or whether it is judged to be pure or whatnot.

Although the dreamer cannot be seen in the dream, everything in it symbolises the dreamer
The foundation of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is that a world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a dream or a movie – in other words, it is an illusion! This is possible to sense, just like when you – within the illusion of a world where there seems to be more than one – have a dream and for a moment sense it is not real.

Regardless the distances and the apparent different persons in a dream, there are no distances and no differences at all. Everything is in the dreamer, so no matter where you appear to be in the dream you are with the dreamer. It is only the belief in its realty, that separates you from each other.

This does not mean, that you in such a moment see what is real, but that you sense the unreality of a world where there seems to be more than one. What is real you cannot see, as there is nothing real in an illusion, no matter what you seem to think, feel experience or read – included Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. But if can you sense, what you think is you is nothing but a fleeting appearance be in a dream, it is likely that the dreamer of it is real.

Reality though is not something definitive. It is formless and much more energetic than you can ever imagine in the dream of a world defined by time and space. Millions of atomic bombs exploding at one time are nothing compared to the formless energy of that which is one.

It is one perpetual present at an unimaginable speed – so fast that there is no difference to see and nobody has the time to see anything. That is why nothing is happening in the formlessness of oneness. See the appendix in What is unreal is right in front of you.

Alexius is speaking from vague memories of the enlightenment of that which is one, where the dream of a world defined by time and space is no more and therefore neither Alexius to experience something. That is why – apart from the certainty that there is no more than that which is one and therefore not a world where there seems to be more than one – he only has vague memories of it.

There seems to be separate appearances to be defined by time and space in the dream called The World. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you seem to see separated appearances defined by time and space, you see what you think you are, namely someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, your belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, fences of the formlessness of oneness.  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you experience or are aware of something, you are either unreal or hallucinating
The experience of seeing something can only occur in a world, where there seems to be more than one. In such a world one perpetual present seems to be hidden behind the idea of linear time, as it gives the impression, there is a continuous flow of endless events with each their own past and a future.

Reality is that which is one. There is neither nothing inside or outside, as that requires more than one.

Selected fragments of this flow some gurus want you to freeze and uphold as if it is a state of peace or stillness, but just like everything else in a world where there seem to be more than one these states are based on excluding something upsetting or disturbing.

In other words, as they are based on the belief in separation, they exclude the only peace and stillness there is, namely the formlessness of oneness, which has no disturbances, as it takes more than one to be disturbed by something. So if you are feeling disturbed or feeling anything at all, you are either unreal or hallucinating.

The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it
The enlightenment of that which is one is a moment, that starts in the dream of a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet in the exact same moment, the dream is over. As that which is you were not in the dream, it is not awakening to a new awareness. On the contrary, there is no awareness of anything, neither that you seemed to have believed being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, as that requires more than one. There is just one bright light – so intense that there is nothing to see and therefore nothing to be.

stock-illustration-95146555-enso-circular-brush-stroke-japanese-zen-circle-calligraphy-n-7-

The enlightenment of that which is one sucks you through a black hole, that starts like a zen circle, except the ´drawing´ of it starts off from the top going extremely quickly in both directions at the same time with a brush like a stroke at both of the ends like in this image. When they meet, an extremely bright light – neither opaque or transparent – explodes out of it while extracting the thought construction you identify to be you, so that there is nothing to suck into the black hole. But the two strokes making the black hole will not meet if you have registered them as for example moving black strokes looking like a zen sign, because you are comparing it to the past and so you go back there. In other words, the black hole is not completed and you are back in a world where there seems to be more than one. From this follows that this description is a mix of my vague memories of the enlightenment of that which is one and my many glimpses it, that stops with the forming of the circle around the black hole. You are probably better off by forgetting all about this if you want to go, where nobody can go. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The light is there to suck what has been stripped free of the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one through a black hole into that which is one. That is if there are no leftovers of this belief because if there is, you will think that you see something and therefore return to a world where there seems to be more than one, because only in such a world can something be experienced to be seen by somebody.

In other words, if it is perceived as if there is something definable in the enlightenment of that which is one, you will again appear to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space.

Those who have exciting enlightenment experiences to tell about have held onto the belief in being someone definitive and therefore not as nobody been sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one, so what they have experienced is a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one.

Glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one can be experienced by seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting it. But as it requires more than one to experience something, the glimpses are not the enlightenment of that which is one.

From from the perspective of a world defined by time and space the enlightenment of that which is one leads to nothing, because there is not something to see, and therefore nothing to define you as someone definitive. That which is one has no perspective, as it requires more than one to have something.

For someone who is fed up of appearing to be someone definitive, it is frustrating to only have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, but for those who love to appear as someone special it is perfect, because the glimpses can be used to pump up the specialness by lecturing or writing books about the experience of a vast empty space full of pure consciousness, love, bliss or whatever the glimpses are interpreted to reveal.

But it has nothing to do with the enlightenment of that which is one because only someone definitive can be full of pure consciousness, love, bliss or anything else.

The rogue consciousness of the self* likes to give the impression, that it can help you get more, whether in a so-called spiritual or materialistic way. Yet you never get anything but the need for even more. This need, however, you already had. It was because of that, you believed to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, so it seems, that although that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

PART 2:
Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, as well as someone who is not, knows nothing. Those not to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, however, do their best to act as if they know a lot, whereas someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has no such need, as the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one is not perceived to make a difference, and so there is nothing to know – except of course that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

So whether you think, that you know, why it is raining, why you or somebody else do this or that, what you think you know is an illusion, as it takes more than one to know something and the formlessness of that which is one is everything, because what is formless is endless.

From this follows that to love or help somebody, just like everything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, is an illusion, and therefore not an attribute of that which is one.

Nothing that requires more than one is an attribute of oneness. In other words, love and whatnot only seem to be possible in a world where there seems to be more than one. Believing to be someone in such a world, however, they can be useful in regards to having the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one undone. That is if this is the purpose of using them. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation or hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life or hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss or hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

In a world of linear time, this appears to takes time. In the process, however, the duality hacks will enable you to enjoy the illusion of that while having the belief that you are someone enjoying something undone. This does not apply to hack #6-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one, as there is nothing to enjoy in the fastest way possible to have the belief in being someone undone, namely the enlightenment of that which is one because it takes more than one to enjoy anything. Besides, the enlightenment of that which is one takes no time, as there is no time in that which is one. See hack #6-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

All that being said about ways, the formlessness of that which is one is everything, because what is formless is endless. Hence a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, including any way out of it. So to fully undo the belief in such a world, the way you appear to go must be undone as well.

A person cannot bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. But a person can momentarily forget what and where it appears to be so that there is not something definable to hide the formlessness of that which is one. If a person just partly forgets what and where it appears to be, the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be bid welcome. Yet such a person may have glimpses of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

EPILOGUE:
Who is looking for food but those with an empty stomach. And who is looking for enlightenment, but those who feel empty. Unfortunately most try to fill this the emptiness with something of a pleasurable nature like for example bliss. But nothing can fill this emptiness, because it is a fantasy based on the belief, that you are someone specific in a world defined by time and space, and that which is you is formlessness of oneness, so that is not possible.

That is why you are bound to feel empty if believed to be someone specific. The solution to feeling empty is therefore not to fill up the emptiness but to undo the belief in being someone definitive.

An enlightened (in the sense of the enlightenment of that which is one) never ask ´who am I?´, because there is no doubt there is no more than that which is one and therefore not a world where there seems to be more than one – regardless it appears to be astral and whatnot. Consequently the enlightened has no need for communities, discussions, so-called interesting exchanges or dialogues, sending love or anything else to make it appear as if there is someone specific there. Someone compared to the enlightenment of that which is one do not believe but pretend to be someone.

NOTES:

The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be seen

The enlightenment of that which is one is not a way back to non-duality, because there is no way back, as you have never left it. This is what the enlightenment of that which is one reveals, namely that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. That is why, in the enlightenment of that which is one there is nothing going back through a black hole to the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one is not a way back to oneness, because you have never left it. This is what the enlightenment of that which is one reveals, namely that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. This is why there is nothing in the enlightenment of that which is one that is going back through a black hole to the formlessness of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
To get a sense of the enlightenment of that which is one, you must empty yourself for any idea of what it is. And then again, doing so will not help, as it will enhance the belief, that you are an autonomously being who is able to do something specific – and it is due to this belief that the enlightenment of that which is one seems to be hidden. So do not try to implement the following in what you believe to be, but let it assist you in having this belief undone.

The enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to a door to oneness, but just like a door in a house has nothing to do with what is in it, the enlightenment of that which is one is not the same as oneness.

This door, however, is not in a world where there seems to be more than one – this includes astral planes and anything else conceivable – because the experience of something is a thought construction, and there is nobody in the enlightenment of that which is one to construct anything. Neither is the door located in oneness. It has no doors, as it requires more than one that one to have a door or something at all.

No worries. That which is you is not in a world where there seems to be more than one. Just like – in the context of such a world – you are not in the world of a video game, even though it may feel as if you are because of the reactions you seem to have while pretending to be there. These reactions, however, are not caused by the world in the game – it has no such power – but how you choose to perceive it. In other words, the experience of being someone in a virtual world is an experience fabricated by yourself.

Likewise, the feeling of being in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fabrication, and just like the fabrication of your participation in a video game is made while you actually appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, so is the feeling of being there imagined while that which is you is actually in that which is one.

There is nothing outside of non-duality, neither inside, because non-duality is formless and therefore without any sides. This does not mean that non-duality is nothing, as what is formless is endless and therefore everything. The animation is grabbed from the web.

There is nothing outside of that which is one, neither inside, because oneness is formless and therefore without any sides. This does not mean that oneness is nothing, because what is formless is endless and therefore everything. In other words, it is a world where there seems to be more than one, that is nothing. The animation is grabbed from the web.

In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings it is often said that non-duality or the formlessness of that which is one is real, but such a statement is also part of duality. For something to be real, there must be something outside of it that is unreal, and as non-duality is formless and therefore endless, there is nothing outside of it.

In other words, though Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings point to that which is real, it is not pointing to something at all, because there is nothing outside of non-duality, as it is everything.

And then again, it is not exactly so. That which is you is not imagining to be in a world where there seems to be more than one while actually being in that which is one because it takes more than one to imagine something, so it is not possible. For the same reason, it is not possible to be in that which is one. No worries. It is not necessary, because there is no difference between that which is you and that which is one.

The above is therefore just a metaphor to explain, what cannot be explained because that which is one is formless and therefore endless – meaning there is nothing outside of it. In other words, a world defined by time and space is an illusion.

Nevertheless, for some unexplainable reason, you experience to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, and so in the context of this experience, the enlightenment of that which is one is the door out of it, because it undoes all experiences.

This door can also be compared to a hand gently comforting a child, who has a nightmare. Feeling a touch of comfort the conditioned ways of reacting to the dream* is temporarily forgotten, so it fades out, and nothing definable seems to hide the undefinable reality on oneness.

That being said you cannot compare the enlightenment of that which is one to anything in a world defined by time and space, because any comparison is based on the past and as time is viewed in a linear way it seems to hide, there is nothing but one perpetual present.

Seen from the world of duality enlightenment, which represents the formlessness of non-duality, is very boring compared to all the excitement duality seems to offer.

The formlessness of that which is one is extremely boring compared to the excitement of a world where there seems to be more than one – at least as seen from the perspective of such a world. Yet, none of the experiences in that world last, so believing to be someone there you are always on the lookout for more, whereas if not being someone at all, there is nothing to hide the formlessness of oneness – and as formlessness has no end it lasts forever.

PART 2:
When we are doing something we expect it to result in something. Whether that appears to be better or worse, the purpose of it has been accomplished, namely to make us feel alive.

There is no way to achieve the enlightenment of that which is one, as to achieve something requires more than one.

If you sit down to meditate, it may result in the experience of what you interpret to be a higher consciousness, infinity, purity, divinity, cosmic awareness and whatnot. Yet you will not experience the enlightenment of that which is one as a result of meditation or something else. It cannot be caused, as it takes more than one to cause something. For the same reason, it cannot be experienced or used to make you feel alive.

Even if the enlightenment of that which is one could be caused by you, you would probably not want to, as it comes from oneness, and that is extremely boring compared to the excitement that appears to come from a world where there seems to be more than one.

The more bored you are in a world where there seems to be more than one, the closer you are to not experiencing it. When nothing is experiencing it all, there is nothing to hide what cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of oneness.

It takes more than one to feel something, and as the formlessness of that which is one is endless, there is no more than that which is one. In other words, feeling something is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To make long short, if you sit down to meditate with the expectation of becoming purer, higher or relaxed, you will feel excited when you achieve it. But if the enlightenment of that which is one is what you long for, you must sit down to not get something and to be totally bored out of your mind, so that there is nothing sensed – not even that an extremely bright light extracts all the info of you as someone definitive, so the nothingness of you gently falls into the formlessness of oneness.

There is nothing in the formlessness of that which is one and it lasts no time, because it is timeless. For the very same reason it lasts forever. It is one perpetual present.

In the formlessness of oneness there is nothing to see, feel or be, neither does it result in a special consciousness or anything else that requires more than one. It is totally boring compared to the excitement of being someone in love, bliss or whatnot in a world where there seems to be more than one.

In other words, the formlessness of oneness is not something you become, because you as someone definitive is not there or anywhere else – and never was, as that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness and as what is formless is endless and therefore everything. Hence the experience of you in a world where there seems to be more than one is a hallucination.

It is of course only if you look for the experience of something specific, that the formlessness of oneness seems so boring, that you prefer to imagine being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. The price of this fantasy, however, is a constant feeling of inferiority, no matter how much more you seem to become or have because nothing lasts except that which you imagine being separated from, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Though the Beatles followed Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for some time, they never transcended and neither did any other of his followers to whom he gave a secret mantra, which could as well had been Coca Cola. The image of the Beatles and xxx from 1967 is grabbed from the web.

Though the Beatles followed Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for some time, they never transcended into the reality of oneness as he had promised, and neither did anybody else to whom he gave a mantra, they should repeat in order to slow down the mind. First of all, it is not possible to transcend someone definitive, because everything defined is make-believe and what is imagined cannot become real. Secondly, within the context of a world defined by time and space slowing down is not what is needed, if the formlessness of oneness is what you long for because that is a very speedy affair. So speedy that there is no time to be someone at all. Actually, there is no time. It is one perpetual present. The image of the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi from 1967 is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:
In the early 70s, the hippie movement from the 60s generally speaking split into two groups, one looking for political solutions that could make life better for the people and one with the goal of giving each individual person a spiritual solution, which was thought to be enlightenment.

Almost 50 years later it is obvious that the people, who the political-minded group thought to represent, do not want their solutions. Neither do hardly any persons want to be enlightened. And the few who did never transcended as promised by for example Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who founded Transcendental Meditation.

The political-minded group seems to have given up making the world better and the spiritual group have replaced their lofty visions of enlightenment with more down to earth ways of how they think each person should be healed, for example by coming from the heart.

All experiences – no matter where they seem to originate – are a construction of thoughts made in the machinery of the brain. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

All experiences – no matter where they appear to originate from or if they seem to be so-called spiritual or mundane – are construction of thoughts made in the machinery of the brain. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Nowadays, however, the heart may not even be your own, but implementation from somebody else or a replacement of plastic. Anyway, every experience you seem to have – whether it appears to be so-called spiritual or mundane – is processed in the machinery of the brain, so no matter where it is perceived to come from, it is a fabrication of the brain. In other words, all experiences are speculations.

The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be experienced, so if you know what it is, you are mistaken.

The enlightenment of that which is one, however, is not something you can experience. It is not something at all. In the context of something, it is nothing, because the brain cannot process formlessness into something experienced.

In reality, though the enlightenment of that which is one is everything because it merges the nothingness of you with the formlessness of oneness, and what is formless is endless and therefore everything, contrary to anything experienced – whether it seems to be so-called spiritual or mundane – which is nothing because it takes more than one to experience something and there is no more than that which is one.


*) At this point, somebody may ask, who is it that has conditioned the child? The answer is nobody. There is no child. It is an illusion, and those in the illusion asking this apparently clever question are doing it for one reason only, namely to make it appear as if they are real and not just make-believe.

Enlightenment does not give you more, because there is no more than that which is one

There is always something wrong with the moments as it is. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In order to appear as better, the unenlightened generally finds something wrong with the present moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
When you are in the rain, you get wet, so wet is what you are in this very moment as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. End of story!

If you hate getting wet, then you are wet and full of hate. And if you worry about the rain and your open windows at home, you are a wet and hateful person concerned about the future at this moment – nothing more and nothing less. Period.

Maybe due to some ideas or conventions of yours, you are not allowed to hate. So in order to not feel the hate as yours, you exclude it by blaming somebody or something else for causing it. If you are a little bit more advanced, you may try to explain the feeling of hate from a metaphysical point of view, as if it is about transforming negative energy into positive. But this explanation is just another way of disguising, that you want to escape the moment as it is.

You may also try to escape feeling the moment as it is by thinking you are detached from feelings – that they are just something you observe – while the truth is that you deny them, and therefore never are present with the moment as it is.

Detachment is a natural attribute of someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, but it cannot be replicated by the unenlightened

Imitating the tropics by wearing a summer cap and a t-shirt, will not make you warm, if you are living in a cold climate. The warmth does not come from these attributes. Likewise the enlightenment of that which is one is not bid welcome by wearing special clothes, meeting special people at special places, sitting in special postures and whatnot. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Detachment is a natural attribute of someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. But in this enlightenment, all being is erased, as it takes more than one to be something and there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is the end of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one, so those who assume they are and have something important do not go there, as that will leave them with nothing.

So they rather prefer to imitate the attributes, they have read one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has – for example detachment – assuming this will make them able to add the qualities of enlightenment to their being and therefore expand their consciousness.

The enlightenment of that which is one is one perpetual present, so it cannot be brought back in a world of linear time.

But the enlightenment of that which is one does cannot expand anything, because it has nothing, as to have something requires more than one. For the same reason, the enlightened does not really remember what it is. One thing though is crystal clear: There is no more than that which is one, so a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. This memory, however, is of no interest to those who want to expand their consciousness, so that it seems as if they are and/or have more than others.

Physically speaking you cannot be together with the person on this pic in this very moment, but if the pic seems to trigger an attraction in you, and you devote yourself to that, your world may start to crack. Through the cracks you will sense, what you are really attracted to, namely the spirit of that which is one.

Physically speaking you cannot be together with the woman you probably perceive to be in the image, but if she seems attractive to you, and you devote yourself to that, your world may start to crack. Through the cracks you will sense, what you are really attracted to, namely something less tangible. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
If you think or feel, that you are in love with just one person, you are wrong. What you are experiencing is not love but attraction. The nature of love is to love everything, whereas attraction is single-minded. But there is nothing wrong with following the latter, provided you do not try to change it into a love relationship.

Attraction in itself is a gateway to a less tangible world because that is where the not so tangible feeling of attraction comes from. It is not important what the form, that you feel an attraction towards, looks like. What matters is, that you really indulge in the attraction and totally devote yourself to the object of your attraction. This might lead to sex, which experience wise also is part of a less tangible world – especially orgasm – but that is another story.

Because I am not talking about approaching the object of your attraction, but simply remain in the attraction itself by letting your mind being sucked into the desire for the object of your attraction, so that the flow of it leads to a lofty state of mind, where you do not bother about physicality.*

You and the one you are attracted to may be worlds apart physically and mentally speaking, or the other one may not even notice you or it is simply not possible to be together due to social conventions. But that is good. Because on no account it is about trying to manifest a relation* with the object of your attraction – if it happens so be it – but to follow an attraction so intense, that the world of the outer senses cracks and the world of the inner senses comes crawling out of them.

The world of the inner senses is in no way the same as the formlessness of oneness. Yet it is a gateway to it, provided you do not mistake the inner senses for spirituality but perceive it as a less tangible level of a world defined by time and space.

The above about attraction also applies to repulsion or other emotions. Devotion is the key.

No appearance in the world is perfect or will ever become perfect, but if you devote yourself to whatever appearance, that you may feel attracted to, you will become, what you already are, namely the perfection that makes it possible to perceive imperfection.

Devotion makes the world fade away – or rather your belief in it. What remains is that which is real. You do not need a guru or a mantra to be devoted. You just need to follow your natural instinct of losing that which is not you. This automatically happens, when you devote yourself to whatever you are deeply attracted to – it may be a mundane thing like a cat, the body of a person, a specific video game, a sunset or something less mundane like an angel.

In a way, the kick starter to writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings was an attraction to the body of a young woman, who was changing her clothes in front of Alexius on a sunny trip in the Mediterranean Sea. Instead of being ashamed of his physical attraction to a woman much younger than him, he dived deep into the flow of the attraction. Physically speaking nothing happened between the woman and him and he has never seen her again. But later that day, there was a breakthrough to the voice behind Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

This voice is not physical being but rather transparent. It can be compared to an ascended master, but not one of those ´rosy´ ones, who want you to help them make a merry-go-round world. Gudruång – spoken with a soft ´d´ and ending in an echo of the enlightenment of that which is one – that Alexius has named this energy, has no need of saving the world. On the contrary, the purpose is to undo the belief in the world, including astral ones and whatnot.

Ultimately the world where we appear to be is an illusion, also Gudruång, Alexius and you. There is nothing but the formlessness of that which is one. But while we appear to be in a world defined by time and space, we all seem to be somebody definitive, so in that context, Gudruång and Alexius are talked about as two different appearances, but in reality, they do not exist as two, neither as one, because it takes more than one to exist and there is no more than that which is one.

Alexius does not force his will upon his cats, but they often choose to follow it. This does not mean they are channeling him or following a higher voice. But that they sense he wants to take care of them in the best way possible, as if they are a part of him.

Likewise Gudruång wants to take care of Alexius, as if we they part of each other, although – just like Alexius and his cats – they are very different in terms of appearances but not in terms of content.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not channelled from Gudruång. It is rather that Gudruång is writing them without his personality interfering with it. Ideally speaking it is like that, but as Gudruång does not know the English language, the writings depend on Alexius knowledge of it, and as the formlessness of oneness is wordless, he has to search for words he can use for something that cannot be expressed.

When he is short of words and still want to go on, part of an article may be coloured by words from his personality – especially the endings, because his a personality is conditioned to look for a happy ending. However, it seems that a happy ending for Gudruång is when there is no memory of beginning and end.

My cat Wincent was howling like a wolf,while I seemed to pass away.

Alexius´ cat Wincent was howling like a wolf, while he seemed to pass away. This he chose to interpret as if Wincent wanted him to stay together with him. If it was out of love or concern for his next meal, he does not know. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Light, bliss, peace, stillness. consciousness or whatever can be experienced is a transitory state to that which cannot be experienced, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

PART 3:
Alexius felt the usual panic the other night when he, like so many times before, seemed to be at the edge of dying. This time, however, the panic attack was very short. Maybe because he knew from before, that the tangible appearance of Alexius always seems rise again – or because he remembered from several times being in this transitional phase, that it is such a relief when the tangible world fades out. But probably most of all because he wants to completely undo the belief in being someone definitive so that there is not something appearing to hide that which he is.

As it takes more than one to interpret something as a problem, the problem is gone when the belief in being and having more than that which is one is undone.

That being said, such a belief also has its moments. When he was willing to undo this belief and his body was about to pass away, there was another appearance, who seemed to want him to remain in the world. His cat, that he sensed somewhere in the distance, was crying out loud as if it was saying ´come back´.

He cannot know, what is going on in a cat, apart from what he projects onto it, and as he liked the projection of his cats begging him to come back, he indulged in the experiences the brain slowly started again to produce of him as someone in a body. The next thing he remembers is, that he could feel his cat purring, while it was laying close to his body.

Appearing to be back in a tangible world, he accepted his choice and started dealing with the practicality of it. His cat needed food – maybe that was the main reason it was worried about Alexius – and so did the body of Alexius.

Feeding the bodies has, of course, nothing to do with ultimate reality, but to get there he starts where he appears to be, namely together with his cat – and being together with someone is to be very close to that which is one.

There is nothing outside of reality, neither inside, because reality is that which is one.

Because he did not leave that which is one on his own. That is not possible. Well, it is not possible to leave it at all, but it is possible to imagine, that there is more than one so that you can leave it together with another one. Consequently, you return as you believe to have left it, namely appearing to be together with another one.

It does not matter if it is you and your cat or somebody else or just you and another thought. As long as you leave a world where there seems to be more than in a way where you appear to be more than one, you undo your imagination of such a world the way you originally made it. This hack, namely hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one, is the last of the duality hacks.

About alone together and the enlightenment of that which is one, see also ´Alone together´ you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.
