PMT ‘A perfect moment’ takes you back to the first moment of duality

Updated November 25, 2021

You and the world is fabricated at the edge of a black hole, which you have imagined to be a way out of that which is one – and to make it appear as if you are right, you divide all the appearances of this fabrication by separating them into good and bad, so that it seems you are in a world, where there is more than that which is one.


What you appear to be, was dreamed up at the edge of a black hole through which you believe to have escaped non-duality. This rebelliousness you continue in a world of duality, where you do not accept that everything comes in pairs of opposites. You fight this basic rule of duality by splitting the constant interaction of opposing components into disconnected elements so that love and hate, for example, do not support but fight each other. This description is, of course, as illusionary as anything else in a world of duality. But since Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not claim to be real, reading them may be beneficial in exposing the illusion of duality.

When the feelings judged as wrong are excluded by projecting them onto others or obscure parts of your body, so you appear perfect, there is always something that needs fixing to not seem imperfect.

When everything is included there is no differences and consequently nothing to improve. Nothing is missing. Hence every moment is the perfect moment.

But if you do not try to avoid the ups and downs of the world by excluding what makes you feel down but instead include down as well as up, then their contrast is cancelled out. Thus the apparent difference between down and up makes no difference. In other words, nothing is wrong or missing. The moment is perfect – also if there still appears to be thoughts and feelings because they are experienced through the echo of that which is One, which is indifferent to the experience of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The inner senses are not limited by the ideas of time and space, so it is not a problem for them to pick the echo of that which is one coming from the beginning of the world, which also is the end of it.

The humming from the edge of the universe
Depending on your preference in the world, the echo of that which is One is either experienced as a sound, feeling, light or taste coming from the edge of the universe – one at a time though, as they are aspects of that which is One. However, this article is mainly about hearing or feeling it, which is often symbolised by Aum and Sohang.

As what is formless is endless, the formlessness of that which is One is everything, so to be conscious or anything else that requires more than one is an illusion.

When the outward-facing senses are partially closed, the inner ones, which are not limited by time and space, can tune into this vibration from the edge of the universe symbolised by the words Aum and Sohang so that you can hear or feel it. What you hear or feel, though, is not that which is One but a glimpse of it because that which is One cannot be experienced.

That which is One is the absence of attention, awareness, consciousness, love or anything else that requires more than one. In other words, they are make-belive because that which is One is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

If the outward-facing senses are entirely closed, there is no world to experience. Hence there is nothing to prevent the flow of the inward-facing senses from erasing all thoughts – or rather the belief that someone is thinking them – so there is not something that appears to hide that which is One. However, this is not the subject of this article. It is written within the apparent realm of a world where there seems to be more than one.

The edge of the universe can be heard, felt, tasted and seen, as if it is in yourself and not far away. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The edge of the universe can be heard, felt, tasted and seen, as if it is not far away but in you.

Feeling or hearing the humming from the edge of the universe, you do not perceive differences to make a difference. There is nothing to separate good and bad or anything else, so everything – though apparently different – have the same value. Every moment is the perfect moment. Nothing is wrong or missing.

Check the article The Enlightenment of that which is One versus glimpses of it for a deeper exploration of the Enlightenment of that which is One versus glimpses of it. In the article Life has no secrets you can learn how to hear and/or feel the humming from the edge of the universe. The perfect moment you can read about in hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

At the end of this theme there are practical instructions of how to have glimpses of enlightenment. See the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment.

You think you have escaped that which is one through an black hole looking a bit like an embryo into a world where there seems to be more than one. But it is a fantasy. It is not possible. There is no black hole, because there is no more than that which is one. Consequently I can only show you a fantasy picture of the black hole, that is imagined to look a bit like an embryo or a horse head. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You think you have escaped that which is One through a black hole into a world where there seems to be more than one. But it is a fantasy. There is no way to escape the formlessness of that which is One because formlessness is endless. Consequently, this image of a black hole that may look like an embryo or a horse head is not real.

In the beginning, every moment was the perfect
A perfect moment can be compared to the first moment of a world where there seems to be more than one. You have just escaped the formlessness of that which is One through a black hole that you imagined seeing at what you judged to be the edge of oneness. Fragments of oneness – or rather selected memories – you brought through the black hole are chaotically floating around until you start organising them into a perfect pattern.

But there is not enough fragments – or memories – to make the pattern perfect. You freak out, and the anger makes them explode into a big bang that expands into the universe in which you spend all your time looking for the missing pieces. You can read more details about this in the articles Duality is a virtual reality on top of non-duality and From non-duality to duality and back.

Truth is that which is One. Consequently there is no truth in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

If you are a factual minded person, you may ask, where are the facts behind the above explanation. There are no facts, but a world where there seems to be more than one is impossible because there is no more than the formlessness of oneness since formlessness is endless. In other words, that which is One is everything and therefore no outside or inside.

Consequently, whatever is experienced in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion – also so-called facts, spirituality, the aforementioned perfect moment, an explanation of the beginning of the world.

The perfect moment is a fairytale
That which is you is no different from that which is One, so it is impossible to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet, it is possible to pretend to be there. Like – in the context of such a world – it is possible to pretend to be someone in a game’s virtual world.

As most have forgotten, that a world where there seems to be more than one is virtual, they believe that what they appear to be is real – and as they think it all started with a big bang, the above explanation about the beginning of the world and a perfect moment is meant to be a fairytale, that reminds you that there is no more than that which is One.

A perfect moment can be used as a way to survive the stress of a world where there seems to be more than one, and/or as a way to have the belief in such a world undone, so there is not something to hide the formlessness of that which is One.

So if this fairytale of a perfect moment seems helpful to you, follow it and go back to the very first moment of the world, where your partially opened inward-facing senses will fill you with glimpses of Enlightenment – or if wholly opened, leave your identity at the edge of a black hole, so that nobody gracefully floats through a black hole into that which is One.

But if this fairytale is not your cup of tea, by all means, go for another – for example, hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation – or go for something entirely different.

It is best, though while appearing to be in a world, where there seems to be more than one to follow somebody else’s voice, as what you consider to be your own is based on the sum of your memories, which means it is the ego talking from the past in an attempt to maintain the status quo by for example saying you should do things in your own pace.

It is, of course, only in a world where there seems to be more than one that you can appear to follow somebody else’s voice. Ultimately speaking, there is nothing but the oneness of that which is you.

No way, however, is more or less real than another. Yet while believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, it may seem as if there is a way that serves you better than another regarding undoing the belief in being someone definitive. If Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings appear to be such a way, use them to set yourself free, but please do not use them to prove that you are on the right track and others are wrong.

Most belief systems are shared vocabulary for people in search of meaning.

Also, do not try to fit into the terminology of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. They are not a new philosophy or religion in which you can find the meaning of life. On the contrary, they undo the belief that you are someone living in a capsule of time and space. What you believe to be, does not exist because it takes more than one to believe something or exist as someone – and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless.


NOTES: 

The inward-facing senses, ‘the Enlightenment of that which is One’ and glimpses of it

Updated November 28, 2021

Enlightenment can be experienced in glimpses with the inner senses in form of light, a feeling or a taste and a sound. This is in my non teaching called mini enlightenment. It has nothing to do with the enlightenment of that which is one though, as it takes more than one to experience something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One can be experienced via the inward-facing senses in the form of seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting it. These experiences can be compared to a movie trailer, which of course not is the movie. In other words, as it takes more than one to experience something, they have nothing to do with the Enlightenment of that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced
To be someone definitive is an experience. And as it takes more than one to encounter something, it is impossible to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One while believing to be someone definitive.

But if you momentarily forget what and where you are, the Enlightenment of that which is one does not appear to be hidden by someone specific. Hence a light brighter than anything else can extract all thoughts that have been stored to make you look as if you are someone definitive and leave them at the edge of a black hole so that no are memories of a world where there seems to be more than one to block the nothingness of you to gracefully fall through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is One.

During this free fall, there is still a connection to the construction of thoughts stored at the edge of the black. This construction, however, cannot be kept together for long without being witnessed by what seems to be a different construction. Therefore, if you want to reappear as someone definitive, it must be picked up again within a few minutes – measured in linear time – to be witnessed by somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This was the way my body looked eight years ago. The way it looks has changed. The glasses are also different, but the content is always the same. It is life and only life, that makes the body seems to appear, no matter what glasses it is wearing or how old, it seems to be.

A person cannot be enlightened. Yet a person can have vague memories of stepping aside for the Enlightenment of that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To pick up the construction of thoughts that constitutes your identity as someone definitive, you just need to focus on something because doing so, there appears to be more than one in the Enlightenment of that which is One. Hence you are back in a world where there seems to be more than one. There the construction of thoughts that you believe define you as someone tangible is witnessed by similar but different looking appearances. Hence, it feels as if you are autonomous beings in a world that is real.

However, returning to a world where there seems to be more than one, nobody can attest to you as someone enlightened of that which is One because that requires more than one. For the same reason, you only have vague memories of leaving your personality behind and as nothing being sucked into the formlessness of that which is one. In other words, you as a person have not been enlightened. That is not possible. Yet, as a person, you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

The enlightenment of that which is One is not a state, because being in a state requires more than one. A glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is One is a state, and therefore not lasting, as everything definable has an end.

A glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One is an experience
When Enlightenment is experienced, it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One but glimpses of it. This is to be compared to watching a movie trailer, which is just glimpses of the whole movie and in no way comparable to it.

Unfortunately it is very common to confuse glimpses of enlightenment for the enlightenment of that which is One, as the experience of the glimpses so easily can be used to hide what is judged as darkness in yourself, so you appear to be someone, who is full of light, even though that is not possible, as it takes more than one to be full of light and there is no more than one in the enlightenment of that which is One.

Glimpses of Enlightenment do not erase thoughts. Yet you tend to ignore them, as you have no need to use them for fabricating an image of you as someone remarkable while having those glimpses. But afterwards, you may start thinking that sharing your memories of them will make you appear to be a new redeemer – especially if it seems as if you are helping others. Yet doing so, you will not see more glimpses of Enlightenment until it makes no difference to you what you appear to be, and you, therefore, can be used by the glimpses instead of you using them.

When the outer senses are partly deactivated, glimpses of enlightenment are experienced through the inward-facing senses as visions of light, ethereal harmonies, a shivering feeling of total emptiness or a taste of sweetness. To bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is One, the outer senses must be completely deactivated.

There is no face to be detached from or stop to desire in this image grabbed from the web, as there is no face in it, unless you have conditioned yourself to fabricate such an illusion.

There is no face to see in this image unless you have conditioned yourself to look for something definitive. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Believing to be someone definitive or not
In the world of the inward-facing senses, the Enlightenment of that which is One or glimpses of it is available for you whether you know a lot about it or nothing at all – regardless of the state of your body or how and where it is positioned. It is merely a matter of focusing on being someone definitive or not. When there is no or little focus on appearing to be someone at all, there are no boundaries to block out the world of the inward-facing senses.

So if you want to appear as someone significant – regardless if it is your pet, children, spouse, god and whatnot you try to impress with your appearance and whether that is to be someone comforting, loving, loyal, beautiful, healthy, wealthy, wise or spiritually transformed – Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not for you.

They are pointing towards that which is formless, but as there is nothing formless in a world defined by time and space, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings cannot be used to prove you are someone specific. On the contrary, the message of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is, you are not different from others because every appearance is equally illusionary.

Going back to that which is One cannot be done, as it takes more than one to do something and there is no more than the formless of that which is One, as what is formless is endless. Yet it is possible to belief, that there is more than that which is One, and reading this you believe so. Therefore going back is all about the undoing of that belief.

If you think a sign pointing towards Berlin Airport has anything to do with the airport except from pointing towards it, you are mistaken. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you think a sign pointing towards Berlin Airport has anything to do with the airport except pointing towards it, you are mistaken. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Pointers must be left, if you want to get to the point
A traffic sign pointing towards, for example, Berlin Airport has nothing to do with Berlin or the airport, even though there maybe is an illustration of an aeroplane on the sign. Besides, it cannot take you to Berlin Airport. All it can do is to show the way.

Likewise, the formlessness of oneness cannot be found in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Neither can they take you there. They just point towards it. To get there, you must leave them behind, to follow the way.

Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings points to the formlessness of oneness by illustrating, it is the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, which hides there is no difference between that which is you and that which is One.

When you want something in a world defined by time and space, there are certain steps to follow. But there are no steps to follow in order to undo the belief in such a world. Believing there is, enhances the belief that such a world is real, and so it will continue to hide what is real, namely the formlessness of that which is One.

Yet there is no specific sequence you must follow to undo this belief and bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. If there was, that would be the foundation for replacing an old belief with a new one. Alexius did not know anything about the Enlightenment of that which is One when he bid it welcome. He did not even know that he bid it welcome.


NOTE ABOUT INNER/OUTER SENSES AND THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE VERSUS GLIMPSES OF IT
In hack #6.2 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, you can read about inner and outer senses and the Enlightenment of that which is One versus glimpses of it. In the below articles, you can especially read about glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One experienced via the inward-facing senses:

The nature of ‘the empty breath’ [draft]

Updated November 27, 2021

It may not always be your experience that the empty breath is your best friend because it is of no help regarding what and where you like to be. Instead, it helps you to see everything through its eyes of indifference, so you feel good no matter what and where experienced to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Entering the empty breath, you do not feel you go higher, but fall into the bliss of nothing.

PART 1:
The empty breath
is a life jacket you got from that which is one when you left it to be and have more than that. This, of course, is a metaphor because you cannot leave oneness since it is formless and therefore endless. Yet, it seems possible to imagine being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

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

This life jacket, the empty breath, loves you unconditionally. Thus it is not bothered by what and where you believe to be. Actually, it does not even see that. It is a fantasy that only can be seen by those believing to be somebody definitive. And it has no way of believing something because it is nothing. So, consequently, this is what it sees.

To see nothing is to love everything and thus feel loved by nothing. That is why the empty breath does not crave love from anybody. You, however, need to love it if you want to feel you are unconditionally loved as someone definitive.

Feeling the connectedness with the empty breath, you probably forget to check the lottery, for example. And when you do, you smile regardless you won or not, because in the flow of the empty breath, you arw indifferent to to becoming and getting more.

The empty breath does not know how to heal hay fever or anything else caused by the belief in being someone definitive. But it knows how to undo this belief. And since you get more laid-back in the process of that, new ways of healing your hay fever may pop up. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The guidance of the empty breath is not about getting better health, more money, success, love or anything else, but seeing that what you appear to be and have is nothing.

Thus being connected with the empty breath, every experience of something is perceived as nothing. Of course, this does not mean that you do not do anything about a broken leg, for example. But since it is seen as nothing, and so is what you do about it, you have nothing to worry about.

To be loved is a need that comes from the perception that diffrences make a diffrence. But since the empty breath is indiffrent to diffrences, being loved or not does not make a difference when connected with it.

Nor does it mean that you do not experience positive to be different from negative, for example, but that the experienced difference does not make a difference. Thus it makes no difference, whether you think positive or negative, feel cherished or rejected, make the world better or not, live in the now or whatnot.

Those advocating ‘living in the nowtry to replicate the traits of the empty breathNot by being indifferent to separation, though, but by enhancing it through the exclusion of the past and the future.

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

The function of the empty breath is not to improve the apparent condition of what and where you appear to be. That would just be a replacement of one illusion with another. Its function is to facilitate the undoing of the belief, that there is more than that which is One, so you do not believe that experience of more than one is real.

Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not concerned with what you appear to think or how much you seem to do it, but that you believe to be thinking. When that belief is undone, thoughts do not seem to have the power to manifest you as someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is also indifferent to becoming or getting something. That is why connecting with the empty breath or applying any other duality hack does not make you more unique. Changing or transforming somebody or something in a world where there seems to be more than one is just to replace one illusion with another. Like how something is changed on a computer screen, everything is the same because nothing is on it.

What you see on the screen is on a hard disk with nothing but zeros and ones. Yet, it is not before they are processed by an app into what appears to be on the screen that the nothingness of the hard disk seems to be a tangible world in which changes can be made.

The empty breath, which in this context is unprocessed zeros and ones, does not know that you assign special meaning to the nothingness on the screen, which, in this context, is the world, so you appear to be someone experiencing something instead of emptiness.

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

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

If something seems to bother you, use the frustration to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, so what you judged as something bad is seen as nothing. See Take-offs into the empty breath.

Connecting with the empty breath has nothing to do with what you eat or think. Nor has it anything to do with meditation except in the sense of being a medium for nothing, which you are when there is a willingness to not look for something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
Taking deep breaths or, in any other way manipulating the breath is not beneficial when connecting with the empty breath because doing so enhances the belief in being someone definitive.

The same applies to being centred, balanced, focused or something else. It is the willingness to not be anything that ignites a take-off into the empty breath.

This willingness, however, does not come from forcing the body into unique yoga postures, neither by controlling thoughts, but by thrusting their uncontrolled flow of energy to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, regardless, you walk, sit, talk or whatnot. See Take-offs into the empty breath.

Actually, speedy thoughts and feelings shoot off repeatedly, and several at a time, to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. But you stop them from becoming boundless by defining them, so you can remain in the illusion of being someone definitive.

The more you limit yourself to being someone definitive, the more you feel like you are about to collapse. To prevent that, you go on specifying yourself until you feel so constrained that you burst of anger or stop giving a shit about holding yourself together, so the uncontrolled energy of the suppressed thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off into the empty breath. However, it does not help you escape your cage but the belief that you are in it.

The apparent difference between happiness and sadness, for example, is not perceived to make a difference in the indifference of the empty breath. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

The same applies when pretending to be someone definitive because what you pretend to be, you are not, so it does not matter if you appear to be lived or hated. This also applies when perceiving everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as a symbol of that which is One because when every appearance is a symbol of the same, the apparent differences of the world makes no difference.

You can read more about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, or in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness.

As it takes more than one to be connected with something, it is only as long as you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one that connectedness with the empty breath seems relevant. See also the articles A perfect moment takes you back to the first moment of duality, and In a world where there seems to be more than one, consistency is a fabricationPhoto © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3::
It requires more than one to experience something, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless. Thus every experience is fictional. Read more about this in the articles. All experiences are equally unreal, and Nothing that can be seen exists.

Consequently, the experience of the empty breath, though it may seem as if you finally have found something authentic, is as unreal as any other experience.

Yet this experience, which is deeply rooted in an archetypical image of a never-ending rhythmic flow, slowly but surely undoes the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. Furthermore, it makes it seems unproblematic to have this belief. Not in the sense that you are not troubled by anything, but in the sense that you are indifferent to it.

A state of not-knowing, which is the result of the empty breath, is also the outcome of the other duality hacks . If it always is the same state of not-knowing cannot be known, because nobody is conscious about it.

If you feel confused by this article, do not try to get a grip on it (read more about that in the hack No understanding = Enlightenment in Extra Duality Hacks). Instead, go with the flow of chaos until you cannot make ends meet into being someone definitive and feel as if you are about to explode, which in a sense also is what happens when the build-up tensions ignite a take-off into the empty breath. Since it results in a state of not-knowing, you are not bound up with the belief that you are someone definitive until you leave this state and return to the consciousness of being someone.

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

Since that which is One cannot be experienced, it is ignored by those who believe that something unexplainable is unreal. At best, it is imagined as a state of consciousness in which the self is transcended into a higher one. Oneness, however, has nothing to do with being in a state, nor about being conscious of something because that requires more than one. So does being someone. In other words, the experience of being someone – or rather the belief that this experience is real – is what seems to hide there is no more than that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX:
If the present stream of thoughts or feelings is not manipulated or suppressed, its untamed energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath. In its presence, you can make up stories of love, for example, without feeling deceitful for manipulating thoughts and feelings to make them because the empty breath sees the world where you believe to be as a blank computer screen. So although the stories you fabricate seems to disclose something on it, the screen remains empty.

In other words, when you are with the empty breath, it does not matter how you perceive the experiences produced by the brain as if you are someone definitive in a world of something. You do not need the happiness that comes from being in sync with them. You are in the bliss of nothing.

But as noted elsewhere, the belief in being someone definitive falls apart if it is not constantly confirmed by the experiences that the brain produces of a world that appears to be outside of you. And since what you believe to be is the sum of your memories, and they are stored in the brain, you are the brain. Thus it falls into a coma if you stay with the empty breath for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, at a time. In other words, the brain falls apart if there is not a constant interchange between the self it has created and the experiences it produces as if there is something outside of it.

No worries, having been with the empty breath for just a split second, the slate is wiped clean. Thus you return to interacting with a world that appears to be outside of you with the perception, it is what it is.’ and therefore feeling happy regardless of how you experience being treated by the world outside of you.

That is until you wonder why everybody seems to know so much more than you, and you start to play their game of being special by changing your perception from ‘it is what it is’ to ‘I know what it is.’ Read more about those perceptions in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. This, however, upsets you a lot because hardly anything goes your way. Fortunately, if not handling the frustration of being wrong, the untamed energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath.

In this way, you can go back and forth between the happiness of something (read more about that here) and the bliss of nothing (read more about that here) until you forget to disconnect from the empty breath, and there is neither bliss nor anything else that can be experienced, since the Enlightenment of that which is One erases everything that requires more than one. Read more about that in hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One.


*) As long as you appear to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you, of course, consult a qualified health care professional if having troubles with the body, although it ultimately speaking is nothing.

Where to find the bliss of ‘the empty breath’ [draft]

Updated November 18, 2021

The bliss of the empty breath may be felt like an intangible yin-yang sign

When you do not believe to be made of substantial elements, nor subtle or solid, empty space takes over. This can, of course, not be illustrated, so this yin-yang illustration is just simulating the swing of the empty breath. Read more about that here. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PREFACE:
Since the bliss of nothing that sets in when connected with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing, it is impossible to connect with it when in the consciousness of being someone definitive. Thus the connection must be established before the brain, based on signals it claims to receive from our sensory system, delivers a convincing experience in which we are somebody definitive in a world defined by time and space.

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.

Appearing to be someone definitive is, therefore, make-believe, no matter what and where you appear to be. Read more about empty space in the articles The empty breath is empty space and so is what you believe to be and Free to float in the void of the empty breath.

On account of this taking one second for the brain to accomplish, there are countless seconds where a connection with the empty breath can be established by going back one second in linear time (see how in the articles Take-offs into the empty breath, and How to ignite a take-off into the empty breath ). In those seconds unprocessed by the brain, there is nothing to define you and therefore no consciousness of being someone definitive, so there is no difference between the nothingness of you and that of the empty breath.

This has nothing to do with getting closer to your pure essence. You have no soul. You are nothing. Being with the empty breath, this becomes inevitably so obvious that there is not something to hide, there are no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless.

How to connect with the bliss of the empty breath

You connect with the empty breath by not connecting with the consciousness of you as someone definitive experiencing the tangible world that the brain spends a second to fabricate from the frequencies it imagines to receive from empty space. You can compare this to not turning on a video game because you rather want to experience the physical world – except that connecting with the empty breath is not a conscious experience but a state of not-knowing, and you have just a second to connect with it instead of the image the brain fabricate as if you are someone definitive. This is plenty of time, though, provided you are willing to not be conscious of something but be in the bliss of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath sees no separation, so it has no need to connect with you, no matter what and where you believe to be. On the other hand, you need to connect with it if you want to be indifferent to the belief in the brains conversion of empty space into a world where you seem to be someone who is separated from everything else by time and space. See also You exist nowhere but in dreams, and they are not real.

Forget about being conscious of the empty breath, as what you are conscious about is never the present but the past.

Having connected with the empty breath by going back one the second from your present experience to the nothingness that is unprocessed by the brain and then not picking up on the brain’s deceptive fabrication of you as someone living in a capsule of time and space, the unprocessed moment is extended into a state of not-knowing.

This state, though cannot last more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, at a time if you want to return to a conscious experience of being someone definitive, because if the brain is not continuously occupied with thoughts, that seems to confirm the conscious experience of you as someone definitive, it falls into a coma.

Consequently, being in a state of not-knowing for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, is the end of being something. This is because the signals the brain used to perceive to come from empty space can no longer be registered and processed into a world where there seems to be more than one. Thus there is not something that seems to cover up, there never was or will be anything else than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless.

the bliss of the empty breath that undoes the belief in being someone definitive

Is it the bliss of the empty breath that undoes the belief in being someone definitive, or is it the undoing of this belief that connects you with the bliss of the empty breath? Since this question arises from the belief in being someone definitive, which is an illusion fabricated by the brain, there is no answer to it, neither to who has invented this illusion nor who choose to have the belief in it undone. Actually, there is no answer to anything. All questions are constructed from out of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Not that many, however, go into a state of not-knowing. If they do, they do not remain there more than a few seconds or minutes before returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive, in which they forget a state of not-knowing until blissful memories of it emerge.

How not to be deceived by the brains fabrication of the experiences where you appear to be someone definitive in a world of something and instead drift in the bliss of nothing is a question that cannot be answered, since it is founded on the belief that you are someone definitive, and the bliss of nothing comes from the indifference to that belief.

Neither can it be known if it is the empty breath or being indifferent to the belief in being someone that comes first concerning the sheer bliss of nothing. The only reason somebody wants to know this – or anything else regarding a state of not-knowing – is that they believe to be defined by what they know and want to remain as that rather than being nobody in the bliss of not-knowing.

Thus the above about where to find the transparent bliss of nothing that the empty breath entails is not an attempt to answer the question but to rule it out. The same applies to the below, which is a further exploration of the above.

now is an illusion fabricated by the brain

You do not know what you are reading at this very moment because what you believe to read now is the brains delayed adaption of the signals it claims to have received from your eyes one second ago. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1: IN THE BLISS OF NOTHING
Even though it only takes the brain a few milliseconds to register the signals, it has imagined that it receives from the eyes in this very moment, what you are conscious about right now is something else, because the brain needs a second more to process a conscious experience of those signals, so it can deceive you into believing they are the basis for what you experience to see now.

In other words, since your conscious experience of now is a delayed interpretation of nothing that it has taken one second ago to process, what you believe to read now you read in the past – or more to the point, you never read because one second ago there did not appear to be something to cover up nothing.

When not organising thoughts and feelings into specific categories, they do not seem to represent something in a substantial world. Hence there is nothing to block out the empty breath, that does not know of such a world or that you believe to be someone there. All it knows is the nothingness from which this fantasy has been made, because it is that nothingness.

now is a delayed interpretation of the past

The data that your experience of this image is based on, the brain claims to have received from your eyes one second ago. In other words, your experience of now is a delayed interpretation of the past fabricated by the brain to fool you into believing that you are someone definitive having your own life. Yet you have nothing of on your own, nor are you someone at all, because what you believe to be is a product of the brain made from out of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As this means you are never in the present but the past, and as it is nothing and that is where the empty breath resides, the way to connect with it is to go back one second in linear time (see how in the articles Take-offs into the empty breath and How to ignite a take-off into the empty breath ), and thus not have a conscious experience of being someone in the world processed by the brain.

Since there is nobody in this state of not-knowing, there is not somebody to perceive the signals the brain claims to receive from the sensory system and processes into different experiences of substantial elements, making up a world where there seems to be more than one, to make a difference. Thus they are exposed to be a fantasy that hides they are a reflection of nothing and not of something, wherefore there are no differences that appear to separate you from the empty breath.

The experience of a dimensional world is a fabrication of the brain, which it produces by overlaying the flat signals it thinks the two eyes ireceives into one seamless image of a 3D world. See hack #2.3 Life is flat or hack #2.5 Size does not matter.

what you believe to be is the brain

The brain uses five per cent of its capacity to construct a self, that through singled out memories, feelings and imaginations makes up an exciting story about itself, stored all over the brain as if it is you. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Just five per cent of the brain is used to shape the conscious experience of ourselves as somebody defined by time and space. Much more space, though, is needed to establish this experience as real. Hence a big part of the brain is continuously occupied with thoughts about ourselves as if they are caused by a tangible world experienced to revolve around us and therefore seem to confirm, we are somebody definitive in it. See also The empty breath and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

If not kept busy by making it appear, as if there is something where there is nothing, the brain falls into a coma, so you can only remain as if you are someone in the tangible world fabricated by it, if you do not float too long in the transparent bliss of nothing, that the empty breath entails.

It seems that when the brain is not kept busy with thoughts, we believe in making ourselves about our relationship with the world (see The ins and outs of the inward-facing senses) for 20 minutes, 45 at the most, it falls apart. And since all the memories we have selected to back up what we believe to be are stored in the brain, this belief falls apart.

When you look for something better, a state of not-knowing is fenced off, until you are so fed up with looking for the best, the almost involuntary reflex to divide the world into better and worse is dismissed in favour for the indifference of the empty breath. Connecting with it, therefore, is not a matter of doing it right but having had enough of that.

Consequently, a state of not-knowing cannot last too long at a time if you want to return to the conscious experience of being someone. This is not a problem, though, because most leave it as soon as the uncontrolled speed of thoughts and emotions has ignited it (see Take-offs into the empty breath and How to ignite a take-off into the empty breath ).

In the bliss of the empty breath you are indifferent to being and having more

The urge to be and have more is the cause of all suffering because more want more, so you will never be or have enough. That is not a problem, though, when connected with the empty breath, as it is indifferent to differences. Hence you always have enough. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

That is because the urge to be someone definitive is so deep-rooted that it paves the way for the brain to break through the bliss of nothing with its version of you as someone who has special relationships with something or somebody.

Since nothing appears to make a difference in a state of not-knowing, there is no special place to go or someone special to love. Thus having a need for something special, feels like being inside an unbreakable armour of pain instead of floating in the bliss of nothingness.

If not trying to escape this feeling of claustrophobia but feel that and nothing else, there is nothing to define it as something, so you are back in the bliss of nothing.

Compared to this vision of you as someone special who can choose what to be and have, the transparent bliss of nothingness seems boring because there is nobody to be excited about being and having something unique.

Love and empathy are like other feelings created by the brain, so that the experience of you as someone definitive seems to be a happy one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you go with the flow, for example to have sex with somebody, the brain rewards you by releasing dopamine to make you happy.

Like everything else, the excitement of sex does not last and, therefore, neither the shots of happiness. But if sex is replaced with empathy for your partner, the brain injects you with shots of oxytocin – also called ´the hugging hormone´ – that makes you so happy that you wish to be a family with a baby to cuddle.

Therefore, a state of not-knowing is left by imagining you are special and in charge of your life, so you can choose a spouse who acknowledges you as unique. However, it is hard work to live up to the expectations of being special, and it seldom results in the excitement you imagined. So one day, you prefer to use your frustration as a take-off into the empty breath (see how in the articles Take-offs into the empty breath and How to ignite a take-off into the empty breath ), and instead float in the bliss of nothing, that arises from the indifference to the desire of being and having something special.

The bliss of the empty breath has no centre

The flow of the empty breath goes in all directions within its non-definable frame of a circle with no fixed centre. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The flow of the empty breath goes in all directions – up and down, back and forth, from right to left, or anywhere in between – within its non-definable borders of a circle with no fixed centre or size (see the illustrations in What does the empty breath feel like?).

It makes no difference to the empty breath, though, what direction you follow or how much you are connected with it. Your willingness to connect is all it wants (see the paragraph The only requirement is a willingness in The empty breath and the bliss of not believing to be someone). If it is there, the empty breath automatically syncs the inner and outward-facing senses, so the sense of tranquillity in the inner ones helps you get through the sense of turbulence in the outer ones (see What and where are the inner and outward-facing senses).

You cannot know what is in your own best interest, because you believe to be someone in need of something. The empty breath, however, knows what you believe in being and having is not something but nothing. Thus what you need is not the excitement of something but the bliss of nothing.

This does not mean it will seem easier to get a new spouse, more money and whatnot in the world of the outward-facing senses, but that it becomes apparent, it makes no difference what you appear to be and have. That which is you is not a limited creature stuck in a capsule of time and space but the formlessness of oneness.

In the bliss of the empty breath you do not know what and where you are

In a state of not-knowing, you do not know what and where you are. No worries. It is not needed. On the contrary, it is the assumption that you know what and where you are that clouds the bliss of not-knowing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As described above, inclusiveness eventually results in a state of not-knowing (see hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness). But pretending to be someone instead of believing that (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive) also does that. And so does having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One (see hack #6.2 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), or perceiving everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is One (see hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life), or acknowledging that the experience of such a world is something you have alone together (see hack #7 Alone together is the key to that which is One).

All Alexius’ Duality Hacks except the Enlightenment of that which is one, eventually, result in a state of not-knowing. If they differ from each other,we cannot know, as there are only vague memories of not believing to be someone.

It takes time for the brain to imagine it receives something from our eyes that it can process into a coherent experience of you beeing a substantial being that sees elements of matter outside of yourself.

The brain of a baby does not know how to do this. But in order to incorporate the baby’s experiences into the collective agreed way of seeing the world, the brain quickly learns how to produce a coherent right-side-up image of the world, so it seems the baby shares its experience of the world with everybody else.

The brain deceives you to fence off the bliss of the empty breath

When the brain, every now and then, screens out what you see, so you do not get seasick from the movement of your eyes, it fills the gaps based on past memories. But as they most often have been heavily edited, the story fabricated by the brain to fill in the gaps may clash with the story of the present that others have. The discrepancy, therefore, makes you feel that something is wrong with you or the world. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2: IN THE WORLD OF SOMETHING
You are probably not aware that every now and then throughout the day, you are literally blind. This is because the brain screens out what you see to prevent you from getting seasick when the eyes move. You do not notice that you are blind two hours a day because the brain hides this by filling the gaps with visual impressions of what it imagines to be there.

In the first episodes of a new TV show, there are normally hints pointing to the forthcoming episodes, and since the brain thrives from envisaging what is going to happen next, it is captured into anticipating the future of the characters and thus enchanted by its own predictions into a state of amusement.

The writers of Game of Thrones try to hook you up and fence of the bliss of the empty breath

The writers of ´Game of Thrones´ want us to bond emotionally with the characters, so that we feel attracted to them as if they are real and not just a fantasy. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

But if the writers of the show do not comply with their own hints when inventing the next episodes, the future of the characters does not turn out as predicted by the brain. Thus the fate of the characters becomes a mystery, that the brain hopes to unravel in the following episodes, wherefore it compels you to stick with the show until the very end. In other words, it is not you but the brain that is in charge.

The predictions fabricated by the brain to fill the gaps of blindness are basically a remix of memories that have been adjusted every time recalled to boost the story of you as someone in a tangible world, so it may not match how others see the same events.

Hence, you conclude that something is wrong in your story or in that of others, and you start trying to correct what is judged to be incorrect.

There is nobody in the bliss of the empty breath

You do not read this article, but what your brain predicts that you want to read. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The more you appear to be successful in this, the more it seems that the story can be shaped to come out with a better version of you. Yet, no matter how the story is corrected, it remains a fantasy, and so does the idea that it has an author.

Just like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, a dream does not have an author or anything substantial in it, neither the dreamer. And it is not in the dreamer or anywhere else. It is a deception made to look as if nothing is something.

Fortunately, the brain cannot make the empty breath look like something, so when we are in its bliss of nothing, we are not deceived by the experiences produced by the brain to perceive them as something.

How many triangles are there in this image?
The brain automatically fills in the missing pieces in this image to make you see two triangles. Thus you probably do not agree that the grey triangle is an illusion and the one partly framed by a black stroke is disconnected. But if you cover the three incomplete black circles, the grey triangle disappears and the other one appears fragmented.

Since it is the brain not only decides what we see but also what we hear, feel, smell and taste, we are not free, but something fabricated and controlled by the brain into believing, we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, and not the formlessness of that which is One.

Consequently, there is nothing to heal but the sick belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, which automatically happens when connecting with the empty breath that takes us back one second in linear time to the nothingness from where the brain has rendered your present experience of something.

This does not mean, that the empty breath is the formlessness of that which is One because it takes more than one to be something, but that it metaphorically speaking is the door to that which is One.

In the bliss of the empty breath the belief in duality is undone

In a state of not-knowing, the brain cannot establish the everyday consciousness of you as someone definitive. This does not mean, though, that the awareness of you as someone definitive is replaced by something better, higher or purer but by no consciousness. Thus there is nobody to be aware of the bliss that comes from not believing to be someone. That is why it is like walking in the air. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3: WHEN APPARENTLY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES ARE NOT PERCEIVED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
In a state of not-knowing, you are blind in a sense that there is no conscious experience of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Thankfully this is resolved by the empty breath and not the brain. It continues to process what it claims to receive from senses as if it is something and not nothing. Still, since the empty breath is indifferent to the apparently different experiences of something, there is no awareness in the connectedness with the empty breath of how the brain categorises them in contrasts of, for example, good or bad, right or wrong, love or hate, within and without and so on.

Though a world where there seems to be more than one is seen in the usual way when in a state of not-knowing, its apparent differences are not believed to make a difference. Thus there is no experience of being someone definitive and therefore nobody to be happy, sad or anything else.

This does not mean that there are no feelings. but that nobody relate them to them as if they make a difference.

Consequently, the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be judged to make a difference. Thus there is nothing special to love or hate and, therefore, nothing specific to worry about.

The bliss of the empty breath is the bliss of nothing


The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When the body, that you appear to be living in, again and again drops something, you could be defined as clumsy. If you believe this and feel guilty about it, you might want to change it.

But as every effort to improve yourself is based on the belief, that there is something wrong with you, your efforts are not changing this belief but enhancing it. You secretly accept this, because even though you do not like to be defined as clumsy, it is preferable to not being defined, because that means you are nobody.

Yet being nobody, there is not somebody to be clumsy or something else. There is just the bliss of nothing.

The bliss of the empty breath is not the end station

A state of not-knowing is not the terminus but a way to see that there is no end and that everything which appears to have it is an illusion because there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Be aware that the connectedness with the empty breath is not similar to being connected with that which is One. The latter is not possible because it takes more than one to be connected with something.

The connectedness with the indifference of the empty breath is simply a way to overlook the apparently different experiences fabricated by the brain so that they are not judged to make a difference, and a world where there seems to be more than one, therefore, does not appear to establish the belief in separation.

Going with the flow of the empty breath is just as easy as going with the flow of sex. The latter though does not result in the undoing of the belief, that you are someone definitive, unless the orgasm is used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In the sense that no thinking is needed, following the flow of the empty breath is no different from following the flow of the genitals. The result of the latter though is the enhancement of the belief in being someone definitive instead of undoing it.

This is not to say though, that sex should be avoided (see Holding back to not ejaculate is just another physical manifestation – but without the physical thrill of it), because the exclusion of sex or anything else adds to the definition of you as someone definitive. Actually, an orgasm can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. That is, if you do not hold back, but are nothing else than that.

Despite the connectedness with the indifference of the empty breath, it eventually undoes the belief in separation, it also enhances it because it requires more than one to be connected with something.

The problems, you perceive to have, do not come from the world where you appear to be, but from the belief that you are someone there. Hence the solution to all the problems is the same, namely the undoing of that belief.

The same applies to letting go of the connectedness with the empty breath or something else. Therefore, to not enhance but have the belief in separation undone, you do not choose to connect with the empty breath or anything else. Hence you are connected with nothing and thus in the flow of the empty breath.

‘The empty breath’ and the bliss of not believing to be someone [draft]

Updated November 24, 2021

Alexius Jorgensen in the bliss of not believing to be someone

Reading this intro is probably beneficial if you want to swim in the bliss of the empty breath. But if you are tired of words and want to swim in bliss right now, go to Take-offs into the empty breath.

When Alexius many years ago was hired to teach graphic design in an advertising school in Denmark, he had a problem. Even though he had been designing magazines, websites, flyers and ads for companies big and small, he did not know how to do it. He had done as a medium for the projects to highlight their content.

To provide the students with design guidelines, he had to deduct ways of creating from his instinctive way of doing it. He wrote, by the way, two books with basic rules of how to do it and a book on colour theory.

If not in the bliss of not believing to be someone, you are speculative

The empty breath cannot help us know why we appear to be substantial beings separated by time and space because this is impossible since oneness is formless and therefore endless. Yet, the empty breath is beneficial in exposing that a world defined by time and space is nothing but a fantasy made from nowhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

How to explain the empty breath?
He is in the same situation as when he started teaching design regarding passing on guidelines of connecting with the empty breath and drifting in its bliss of emptiness. He has no second-hand knowledge, which he can use as a reference to explain how to connect with the empty breath.

He neither knows how to explain that what and where we experience to be is an artificial construct, designed by the brain to control and manipulate us into believing that this experience is genuine and not fabricated by the brain from nothing.

But since he is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, he does not believe in a world where there seems to be more than one, nor does he believe to be someone in that which is One. On the contrary, he is nothing because it takes more than one to be someone, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, what and where we appear to be is a fantasy made from out of nothing and experienced by nothing.

However, in this fantasy, he knows how to step away from it and be in the state of not-knowing* that the empty breath, like the other duality hacks, entails. Once, he watched a movie (You Disappear) in that state, which quoted the latest scientific explorations about the brain, which might help realise that everything appearing to be something is nothing.

Consciousness is a construction of thoughts comparable to the ones and zeros in a stream of binary code.

The fabrication of something from nothing
The short version of these discoveries is that the brain uses five per cent of its capacity to construct an image of a self that is aware of being someone definitive through the experiences, another small part of the brain continuously fabricate a tangible world as if it is outside of the self and as if it is the self that experiences this, and, therefore, believe to be someone substantial in a tangible world. Especially because this world seems to cause its thoughts and feelings.

These experiences of an external world the brain claim to process from the frequencies it receives via the sensory system, but this explanation, just like the experiences it fabricates, is a smokescreen to cover up, that it is all made up from nothing. A flower, therefore, is just as unreal as a plastic simulation of it.

Read more about the brain fabricating a world of something from out of nothing in the article Where to find the bliss of the empty breath. That everything experienced is an illusion you can read more about in the article All experiences are equally unreal.

Being in the bliss of not believing to be someone is to be empty

Science states, the world we seem to feel and see consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also being 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. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The experiences interpreted as the most meaningful ones, namely those that seem to define you the most, are stored in the rest of the brain. And as the sum of these memories constitute what you believe to be, you are not just a fabrication of the brain. You and the brain are the same. Every bit of it – not only ten per cent – works to make it appear as if you are someone in a world of something and not just a fantasy made from out of nothing.

Whether an experience seems direct or comes from the heart, physical or spiritual, it has taken the brain a second to generate it. Hence what you believe to be experiencing now happened one second ago. And then again, it never happened because one second ago, there was nothing, and it only seems as if you experience something now because you need to believe this to feel you exist.

The rest of the article is not based on the scientific discoveries revealed in the movie (You Disappear) nor on anything else formulated somewhere else. To the knowledge of Alexius, nobody has published anything about the empty breath. See also Where do the hacks of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings come from.

In the connectedness with the empty breath, the apparent difference between the opposing sides of the contrasts making up the experience of duality is cancelled out. Not in the sense that you do not register them anymore, but that you do not perceive them to make a difference. Thus there are no diversity to attest to you being someone in a world of duality. Consequently, you are in the bliss of nothing.*

The bliss of nothing
Though science seems to know that the experience of something is made from nothing and therefore is make-believe, they explore something as it is real. Here, however, we explore how to see, there is not something at all and, therefore, not someone seeing it.

The experiences the brain fabricates of a tangible world only seems real if the self that the brain also has created perceives them as something. If not, they are exposed as nothing, likewise the self. Thus, to perceive the present experience as nothing, you go back to the empty void from where the brain has twisted it into your everyday experience of something.

Since that is where the empty breath resides, and it took the brain one second to fabricate your current experience of something, it only takes one second to connect with the empty breath and be in a state of not-knowing and thus the bliss of nothing.* Doing that does not require you to meditate or something else in particular. All that is needed is the willingness to forget what and where you appear to be. Read more about that in the below paragraph The only requirement is willingness.

If the brain is not kept active in a feedback loop, with thoughts that seems to confirm there is more than involved, for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, it falls into a coma. Thus you cannot be in the bliss of nothing* very long at a time, if you want to be able to return to a world of something as if you are someone there.  See also the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks.

Not knowing what and where you are is the bliss of not believing to be someone

Not knowing what and where you are, the connection with the empty breath is automatically established because it is a state of not-knowing.* Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since you cannot appear to be somewhere, nor in a state of not-knowing,* without the experience of being someone, there is still someone to experience the world of something made up by the brain when in a state of not-knowing*. But your experience as someone is so vague that there is not enough consciousness to perceive the apparently different experiences of something to make a difference. Consequently, there is no perception of separation to hide, that although the fantasy of something is a colourful experience, it is pale compared to the bliss of nothing.*

Although you probably forget the empty breath, it remains connected with you, because it does not know, that you believe to be someone who is separated from everything in the low-frequency world experienced by the outward-facing senses.

Yet it senses the stress coming from this belief, so it synchs it with the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses, which is indifferent to the restlessness that speedy thoughts and feelings seem to produce in the world of the outward-facing senses.

The inner and outward-facing senses
When we are not connected with the empty breath, and therefore not in the blissful state of not-knowing* but in the happiness of the basic self or the nervousness of the special self, the empty breath is still with us, provided we, just once, have connected with it, because it does not know of separation. Read about the basic and special self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

Thus the empty breath always functions as an automatic gear change between the outer and inward-facing senses to make the abstractness in the world of the inward-facing senses the base from where the world of the outward-facing senses is perceived, so it does not appear to consist of something but nothing when in a state of not-knowing and not in that state the experiences of something are perceived as ‘it is what it is.’ Consequently, none of the experiences is something special, including you as someone, so you are not happy or sad but happy-sad. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

As any experience is an illusion, it includes the experience of the empty breath. But as this illusion unveils the bliss of nothing,* which, contrary to the experince of something, is not experinced to end, you eventually stop asking for more. Hence the belief, that it is possible to be an have more than that which is One is undone.

These experiences, of course, only makes sense as long as you believe you are someone definitive in the world of the outward-facing senses, but assuming that is like believing in Santa Claus.

Fortunately, the connectedness with the empty breath exposes this, so the bliss of not believing to be anything is the last thing you experience before the belief in being someone is undone and therefore does not seem to cover, there never was or will be more than that which is One, since it is formless and therefore endless.

In the flow of not believing to be someone

Going with the flow of the empty breath, you become indifferent to what you get, so if you want something specific, you must disconnect from it and accept the stress that comes from not being in the flow of nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The synchronisation of the inner and outward-facing senses
To take the edge out of the stress we feel in the world of the outward-facing senses, the empty breath synchs it with the world of the inner ones. Not because this world is more peaceful, but because it is a high-frequency world. Thus the speedy and restless energy that appears to cause stress in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses does not seem stressful.

It is not thoughts as such, that prevents us from going with the flow of nothing, but the desire to use them to accomplishing something specific.

That being said, you might not want his synchronisation because although it results in indifference to stress, it may not help you to get what you have stressed to achieve. This is why most like to avoid the flow of the empty breath and endure the hassle of obtaining what they desire.

Like a pencil cannot make its scribblings go away but an eraser can, you cannot make your scribblings as someone definitive go away but the empty breath can.

However, if they get it, they do not feel satisfied but disappointed because more is still needed. This, they try to tone down through meditation, yoga or other techniques that seem to hide that all they care about is becoming and having more at the expense of anybody (see No manifestation is real).

You can read a more detailed explanation of the inner and outward-facing senses in the following article What and where are the inward and outward-facing senses or in hack #6.3 The inward-facing senses, the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it.

The more the connectedness with the empty breath cancels out the contrasts of duality – for example happiness and sadness – the more you are indifferent to what and where you appear to be in a world of duality.

Time is nothing in the bliss of not believing to be someone

Without the basic contrast of expansion and contraction, there is no experience of life. Yet what we experience as life is actually death because life is formless and thus without a beginning and end, so anything that does not last is lifeless. It is, however, the life that makes it possible to have fantasies about being a limited being in a lifeless world – just like within the context of such a world, it is only due to that, you can imagine being someone you are not in the virtual world of a video game.

You do not connect with the empty breath at your own pace
While Alexius was writing about the empty breath, he deducted ways to ignite it from his instinctive way of doing it. For example, using the unedited energy of the stress arising from the belief in being someone definitive ignites a take-off into the empty breath. Read more about that in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

There is nothing to know, because that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless. So although there seem to be lots to know, when appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, there is only one thing to know in regards to the formlessness of oneness, namely that there is nothing to know.

That is why Alexius’ Enlightened NonTeachings is not about learning something new but to unlearn everything. This you can do by reading all of them – or flip through them – until they automatically apply one or more of Alexius’ Duality Hacks and brings you in a state of not-knowing, in which there is nobody to perceive the person fabricated by the brain as real. Hence there is nothing but the bliss of being indifferent to any kind of belief.

That being said, when it comes to the practical aspects of appearing to be someone definitive, you should not avoid learning and knowing something, or being and having more. It is self-evident, however, when connected with the empty breath. Its indifference to differences makes it impossible to choose anything yourself. Thus you just go with the flow of doing something exciting. In other words, you are are having the belief in being someone undone, while enjoing it to its fullest.

If this is what you want, it is not essential to read HACK #5 A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss from beginning to end or just browsing it. But it is crucial to not focus on anything in particular, nor spend time processing or integrating it, as that enhances the belief in being someone. Instead, unlearn everything, so you contain nothing and, as an empty vessel, can serve the empty breath. See also the hack No Focus = No World Defined By Time And Space in Extra Duality Hacks.

Only those believing to be special have the need to do things in their own pace.

The bliss of not believing to be someone does not come from something but nothing

Looking for something you can relate to as your true self in the teachings of a guru, for example, you do not look for that which is real because it is no different from that which is One, and it takes more than one to look for something. However, if you do not relate to something but nothing, there is no relation and therefore no more than that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

So do not read about the empty breath with the expectation of finding something to make you or the world better, but to become indifferent to what and where you appear to be. In other words, the less you seem to know anything, the less something appears to hide, what you believe to be is nothing. Hence there is not something to separate you from the empty breath.

It is not necessary to undo the belief in being someone definitive to connect with the empty breath, but it is essential to be willing to have it undone.

The only requirement is a willingness to not be someone definitive
Leaving your comfort zone of knowing what and where you are is not done by fighting or transforming your learned behaviour, but by being willing to undo the belief that makes it possible to appear as if you are conditioned by something, namely the belief in being someone definitive.

About willingness see also Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This willingness most often comes from admitting that your appearance as someone definitive is not a matter of fact but make-believe. You accept this by acknowledging that you are not willing to undo the belief in being someone definitive because the acknowledgement confirms that what you appear to be is make-believe.

Since nothing matters when connected with the empty breath, you are free to have fun.

Having the belief in being someone definitive undone does not mean that you seem to be gone, reborn or awakened. Like within the context of this belief, the appearance of Santa Claus does not stop when you grow up. It is the belief that he is real that stops. However, there is one difference between the undoing of the belief in Santa Claus and you being someone definitive. When the belief in the latter is undone, or in the process of being it, you are not disappointed because now you are free to enjoy being someone definitive in a fantasy about Santa Claus, having a family and whatnot.

Connecting with the empty breath is not about being deeper, purer or balanced. Being anything is part of the experience of being someone, and the empty breath is not part of that but the nothingness that this experience is fabricated from.

The swing of an yin yang sign comes from the bliss of not believing to be someone

The empty breath can be felt like a swing of nothingness, that makes the body expand and contract and thereby supply it with oxygen. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath can be felt like a swing of nothingness supplying the body with oxygen through expanding and contracting it. See the paragraph The swing of the empty breath in the article What does the empty breath feel like?

Just like everything else sensed, it is invisible and colourless until the brain ascribe it with a specific shape and colour. But as the brain cannot conceive nothingness without falling into coma, the empty breath remains invisible and colourless.

How does it feel
The connection with the empty breath can be experienced as described by Alexius in the articles What does the empty breath feel like?, and To be nobody and yet somebody. But do not count on it. His experience of it is not static. And even if it were, you and Alexius may experience it in each your own way – just like when drinking the same cup of tea, for example. Besides, the main attribute of the empty breath is indifference, which is hardly an experience.

On top of that, it may not even be the empty breath revealed through the willingness to not uphold the belief in being someone definitive. Instead, maybe it is the Enlightenment of that which is One or glimpses of it (see the article A reintroduction to the inward-facing senses, the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it), or the freedom that comes from pretending to be what you are not (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive).

Everything is new in the bliss of not believing to be someone

Even though some plants are edible, not all of them are. Often the most beautiful of them should not be eaten if you want to remain as someone living in a capsule of time and space. And if you do not want to end when your appearance there is over, you better avoid beautiful ideas like living in the nowcoming from the heart and being transformed, because they are based on the belief in being someone definitive – and everything definitive, contrary to the formlessness of oneness, has an end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What you believe in being does not exist
Should you wonder, who chooses to believe, that the image fabricated by the brain of someone definitive is you, or who has programmed the brain to produce this image, or who is connecting with the empty breath, or who is wondering about this, the answer is nobody, because the experience of being somebody, whether in a so-called spiritual or physical sense, is, within this experience, comparable to being in a dream. There is nobody in it. Thus the empty breath and the other duality hacks are as dreamlike as anything else in the experience of being someone definitive, no matter what and where that seems to be.

Appearances do not matter in the bliss of not believing to be someone

There are many ways to appear definitive in a world defined by time and space, but there is no way to leave it because you are not in it. Like within the context of such a world, a dreamer is not in its dream, and therefore not returning to its bed when the dream is over. Likewise, you do not return to the formlessness of oneness when your apparent life in a world of something is finished because you never left it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But contrary to the illusions of the many belief systems in the world, Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not attempt to transform or make the world better but expose that everything experienced is made from nothing.

Connecting with the empty breath, for example, you become indifferent to the differences in the experiences produced by the brain. Hence you do not believe to be separated from others. Instead, it is something you pretend to be.

And as what you pretend to be, you are not, that which is you does not end when the brain cannot produce the experience of you as someone anymore. Until then, it is much fun pretending to be what and where you are not.

Pretending to be someone definitive undoes the belief in being it, because what you pretend to be you are not. Read about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

APPENDIX:
Since Alexius is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, he perceives every experience as nothing. Thus the distinction he makes between a state of not knowing and the experience of being someone definitive can be shaped by that. In other words, there might be a slight mix up in the description of the bliss of nothing* and its after-effect, which comes from having had the slate wiped clean, so you return from a state of not-knowing in the default mode of the basic self, and, therefore, automatically is synced with the brain and thus in the happiness of something (read more about that here).

However, most of the explanations of connecting with the empty breath are not geared towards the basic but the special self, as that is the most common way of being in the world of the outward-facing senses. Fortunately, the stress that comes from keeping together the image of being special can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, provided you do not try to deal with the stress yourself.

On the other hand, the basic self does not need the unedited energy of stress to connect with the empty breath. It easily becomes so laid-back that it does not perceive feeling fulfilled as better than depressed, neither being right to be better than wrong. These or any other feelings are not perceived as something specific. Hence there is nothing to hide the bliss of emptiness.

This does not mean that feelings of anger or love, for example, does not pop up but that no feeling is perceived to make a difference. Thus they all reveal the bliss of nothing* when the basic self is so laid-back that its basic perception is ‘dunno what it is.’

Read about perceiving everything as ‘dunno what it is’ in ‘I know what it is’ versus ‘It is what it is’ versus ‘Dunno what it is’. Check out about the basic and special self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one, and the after-effect of a state of not-knowing in the article The bliss of nothing.

The bliss of nothing [draft]

Updated November 18, 2021

When you hike, you need to take a break after a while. And so do you from the conscious experience of being someone by being in a state of not-knowing. Just like you start afresh after a break from hiking, you start renewed – or rather re-established  – after a state of not-knowing because it wipes the slate clean. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1: THE BLISS OF NOTHING
Though the empty breath has no need to be remembered by you, doing so is beneficial for your well-being as someone definitive and the undoing of believing to be that.

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

But you cannot remember it for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, at a time, if you want to continue the experience of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Read more about that here. Thus a great way of almost always remembering it is to quickly change between the conscious experience of being someone definitive and a state of not-knowing, which the empty breath entails and in which the slate is wiped clean and you, therefore, return to the conscious experience of being someone as the basic self. Read more about the basic self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

This can be done by following the rhythm of the breath so that when it expands the body, you are in the conscious experience of being someone definitive and in a state of not-knowing when it contracts the body. Click here for a more detailed explanation of how to quickly go back and forth between the conscious experience of being someone definitive and a state of not-knowing.

Returning to that which is one is not a matter of going anywhere. Oneness is formless and therefore endless, so it is not possible to leave it. But, nevertheless, it seems possible to believe that it is. Fortunately, the empty breath undoes this belief so gently that we can enjoy it while having it undone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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

Since you, therefore, do not perceive yourself to be special when returning to the conscious experience of being someone, there is no need for something specific to define you, so it is easy returning to a state of not-knowing. Read more about the perception of yourself as special or not in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

When in the flow of going back and forth between knowing and not-knowing, the belief in being someone undone is one day undone. You do not wonder about when because you are enjoying being in the flow.

Besides, time is an illusion, and every experience is bound to end, as in a state of not-knowing the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one do not appear to make a difference, so one by one, they are cancelled out.

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

When every so often connected with the empty breath, nothing remains a problem, because the differences, that appear to have caused it, are cancelled out the very moment you return to the empty breath, so they cannot be used to make a perception of you as someone making a difference.

That is, if you do not prevent the empty breath from cancelling out the differences and insist on some of them makes a difference, for example if you are in a friendship or a romantic relationship. Fortunately, the frustration that seems to arise from claiming to know what is right can be used to ignite a take-off into ´the empty breath´.

In short, the rapid on and off connection with the empty breath will sooner or later end all experiences because it cancels out differences. Without them, there is nothing definite to encounter. And thus, not something to hide there is nothing but that which is one as it is formless and therefore endless.

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

This does not mean oneness is revealed. It is not possible because that requires more than one. But what appears to hide it can be exposed as nothing. That is what Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is about, namely revealing that what you perceive to experience as something is nothing, including what you believe to be. Since realising this requires more than one, it is only is possible in a world where there seems to be more than one, and since it is a world of linear time, this is a process in time.

The willingness to realise this is often initiated by admitting, you are not willing to recognise that what you believe to be is nothing because by acknowledging this, you agree that what you appear to be is make-believe and therefore not that which is you.

About willingness, see ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone and Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

PART 2: THE AFTER-EFFECT OF THE BLISS OF NOTHING
When you return from a state of not-knowing to the belief in being someone definitive and have forgotten the bliss of not believing that, the empty breath remembers it for you – also if you only remember the empty breath once in a while. And just like it syncs being nobody with being somebody in a state of not-knowing, so you can move around in nothing as if it is something, it also does that in the after-effect of it. The ratio is different, though.

In a state of not-knowing, there is so little consciousness of being somebody that there is nobody to perceive the apparently different experiences to make a difference. This is in the bliss of nothing. In the after-effect, the empty breath syncs the bliss of nothing with the conscious experience of something, so emptiness is forgotten when you need to be aware of something like driving a car. In other words, in a state of not-knowing, you are, first of all, nobody, and in the after-effect, you are mostly somebody.

When someone is hurt in a movie, that you are watching, you may also feel hurt. That is why the movie seems real. But since the film is not perceived to be real, feeling hurt seems entertaining. This is how it is to be connected with the empty breath. Though the world appears to be real, you perceive it as unreal. Hence its apparent ups and downs are equally enjoyable.

But since your slate is wiped clean in a state of not-knowing, there are no misperceptions of being special in the after-effect of it. Thus you are the basic. It perceives every experience as it is what it is. Hence, no matter in which ratio nothing and something is synced by the empty breath, each experience makes it equally entertaining to appear as if you are someone definitive. This after-effect lasts from a few seconds to several years if you do not hold onto specific thoughts and feelings. An excellent way to prevent this is to apply hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

This is often done with new-age concepts of being in balance, the now and whatnot. That is until you are so frustrated from trying to make these concepts work, and you do not attempt to fix the disappointment but have the unedited energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath, so you again have your slate wiped clean in a state of not-knowing and return to the consciousness of being someone as the basic self. Read more about the basic and special self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one. And read more about the after-effect of a state of not-knowing in From the bliss of not-knowing to the happiness of serving.

You are in a state of not-knowing when you do not know what and where you and your beloved ones are. Yet it is your devotion to what you and they appear to be, that exposes the nothingness of this appearance.

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

PART 3: WHERE IS THE BLISS OF NOTHING?
Although what we believe in being is seems to come across somewhere, it is nowhere because it is an experience created by the brain from out of nothing. The brain is as immaterial as the experiences it fabricates. Still, it uses them to make itself appear as a material thing in a physical being, who seems to have the experiences of a tangible world that the brain fabricates and, therefore, believes to be a substantial being in a world made of solid elements.

In the context of this illusion, where nothing seems to be something, a state of not-knowing is a version of nothing that has not been processed by the brain into an experience of something. Read more about that here. In a world that is experienced to be something, a state of not-knowing may in an abstract way appear to originate from the back of the head, when all the grievances that have been stored there are acknowledged as old friends, and, therefore, do not appear to create pressure in your head but sheer bliss. Yet, the whole brain will never be in a transparent bliss of nothing.

The way to become friends with old complaints is not to get rid of them or understand them, nor to forgive those you resent for having caused them, but to acknowledge what the grievances make you feel by being that and nothing else, so there is not something to contrast what you feel, wherefore neither you nor what you feel is definable. Hence you are in the bliss of not knowing what and where you appear to be.

What does ‘the empty breath’ feel like? [draft]

Updated November 18, 2021

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 experienced 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 thingy that passes through the head – or above it – and the stomach or below it. Yet, it is not experienced concerning the body, nor inside or outside. This is not because everything is perceived to be 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. However, this does not mean 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 constantly moving, so the experience changes from moment to moment as if it is in the stomach, chest, or 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 might 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 might 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 particular 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 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, its experience may change from moment to moment, and it may differ from those described in this article. No worries. Connecting with it is not about doing something specific to feel something definitive but going with the flow. 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 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 shape of the empty breath
The empty breath is modelled like an egg-shaped ball with lots of oval circles moving inside it, but contrary to what you see in the illustration to the right, it does not have a definitive centre or border. Nor do the circles inside 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. You cannot see this in the simplified illustration to the right but in the simulation in the second image from here.

That the empty breath has a non-definitive form does not only mean that its edges are blurry but that neither its size nor 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 might 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 of the circles, appearing to be inside the non-definitive ball of the empty breath, is floating around, there are many no 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 into more than one, most will probably not feel the totality of the empty breath, but one of the many circles that seems to make 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 consist of many different movements in their own size and shape, everything is actually fused into one single move. Since this can 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 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. You can expand the diameter 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 empty breath to be located, 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 of 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 section 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. In contrast, the state of not-knowing coming from the rhythmic flow is more like being 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 section 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 to experiencing the empty breath in specific ways but to inspire you to experience it in your way.

d76fd0833b28d1db146c08a2dd2057d91-2

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 move in sync with the breath – or rather the breath moves in sync with them. Therefore, it is 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 cannot 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, 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 to 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 ecstatic 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, more or less aligned with the breath extracting and contracting the body. However, there might be even more joyous ways revealed to you when following the flow.

Alexius has never been surfing in the world of the outward-facing 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 its front 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 unaware of this before writing what the empty breath feels like and, therefore, took a closer look at it. He usually just follows the flow without thinking about direction and whatnot, because in his case, the flow primarily results in the sense of indifference.

It is, however, possible to be more choosy than Alexius is typical. 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 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 your impulsive or deliberate side. 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 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.

Sometimes problems like spasms are the body’s way of shaking parts of the body into a position that benefits the whole. In such a case, spasms should not be healed, of course. But if that is not the case, you can use the empty breath to calm down the spasms.

Instead, it may 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 regarding getting through the lockdown.

The empty breath is also beneficial for alleviating allergy symptoms or the symptoms of IBS and COPD, for example. However, it may not heal these or any other physical sicknesses because the purpose of Alexius’ Duality Hacks is not to heal the body but the sick belief 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 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 freed 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 as 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 instead be used by it, so going with the flow sets the body free to heal itself. This is why it is brilliant in the case of psychosomatic disorders. However, it is not commendable to catch every detail about the empty breath in this article because an intellectual understanding of it will not help you feel connected with it.

In hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues, you can read more about the unfortunate belief that one can mix physical and psychological issues results in 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 impossible 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, 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. Although the swing of it is magnificent, its experience often is 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 feel 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 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.

The shape of the circles with the swing of the empty breath is more like an egg. See the illustration. The experience of the curved line inside ‘the egg’ may not seem logical. Breathing in, you may solely experience the swing of the empty breath in the bottom of ‘the egg’ and breathing out, in the top of it – or the other way around, or only in the bottom, or the top. You can also experience the whole curved line going back and forth or up and down at once.

To make long short, the empty breath behaves like a bird. If it has a pattern of flying where you cannot see it. So do not try to shape the empty breath, nor to let it be. Both attitudes fend of the experience because they imply you are in charge. So instead, acknowledge you are not in control. Using the technique for the taste of life, you automatically lose control because, whether you taste it or not, the method is beneficial for defocusing. And without focus, you are not in control.

Read about the taste of life and focus versus defocus in Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of Enlightenment.

If you experience the swing of the empty breath in all the egg-shaped circles 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 with much force that 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 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 into 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 outward-facing senses.

Unlike the swing of the empty breath, but like surfing its waves, this force is sensed inside and outside the body. It is often more straightforward to feel its very subtle energy outside of the body as the dense bodily feeling is not an obstacle. If you do not try to catch its abstractness but go with its fleetness, you feel like 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 probably are 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 its transparent sound (see the next paragraph) or feel its rhythmic flow, you are bound to perceive it as something and thus 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 outward-facing senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The transparent sound of the empty breath
Just like the rhythm of bass is heard and 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 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 evident that it is not real but a fantasy made 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. The visual-minded will experience this as visions of light, and the auditory minded as ethereal harmonies. However, if you are more emotional minded, you may feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang, and The Word of God symbolise or taste its sweetness.

The glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, for example, the visual aspect, 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 of 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 #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One.

However, the empty breath cannot be brought about by manipulating the physical breath or exercising any other form of control. Instead, 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 with toning 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. But, 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 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 into the empty breath. See how to do that in Take-offs into the empty breath and How to ignite a take-off into 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 afterwards is personal. Hence your memories may seem different than those of Alexius.

If still confused, you are welcome to mail Alexius, although using your uncertainty to ignite a take-off into the empty breath is preferable because he cannot help neither you nor himself as he sees nobody in need of help.

Thus you would be better off keeping 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. Indeed, 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 cutting 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 the inward-facing senses. You should, however, never attempt to cut out the world of the external senses yourself in situations that require your full attention in driving a car, for example.


NOTE ABOUT NOTHING VERSUS SOMETHING
In 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 that makes him indifferent to the apparent differences in the world experienced outside 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.

How to ignite a take-off into ‘the empty breath’ (draft)

Updated November 18, 2021

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 into 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 as 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 of 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 into 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 into 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 brain´s rendering of nothing into a world of something looks the same. But it is not perceived to be something, therefore not confirming you as 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 on 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 tensions, as the empty breath is not healing the body – only the belief that there is someone in it.

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

Having passed the apparent physical and emotional obstacles, you turn into nobody. It may at first feel like the empty breath sets off from an engine in the abdomen as if it is an inner breath that slowly 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 that extracts and contracts nothing, it is in a world where everything is experienced as something also experienced to be that. It might be experienced as if you having fun surfing yin-yang like waves in the rhythmic flow of the empty breath, or being everywhere and nowhere in the sound of it, or joyfully moving with the swing of it, or being still in the abstractness behind its rhythmic flow. Read more about that in What does the empty breath feel like?

Although it may have been unedited speed and chaos that connected you with the empty breath, it is not a speedy or chaotic affair being connected, but like you weightlessly walk on clouds. Think of being high up in the sky in an aeroplane. Although the speed 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 into 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 about these two kinds of self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

If not focused but defocused, all the elements used to construct what you believe to be blur out. Hence they do not seem to be something, and you, therefore, not to be 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 into the empty breath. Regarding the basic self, it is not the stress of being somebody but the relaxation of being nobody that ignites a take-off into 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 into the empty breath and the bliss of nothing
The process in the above box, generally speaking, resembles the way a take-off into the empty breath is ignited. The perception of the experiences you seem to have is believed to establish you as special and, therefore, 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 with that, your frustration ignites a take-off into 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 at the latest 20 minutes, 45 at most, after entering a state of not-knowing, if you want to be able to go on as someone substantial in a tangible world. Read more about that here.

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

And this happiness does not come from what you experience to be and have but from being in sync with the brain (see hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one), there is no need to perceive any experiences as something special. Thus they seem so unimportant, that, every now and then, there does not appear to be something to hide the bliss of nothing. In other words, you automatically and very quickly go back and forth between a state of not-knowing and the conscious experience of being someone. See To be nobody and yet somebody.

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

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

In other words, when you are totally fed up with being controlled by the thoughts and feelings you have sought out yourself to form a belief system of how to be special, you automatically leave it. Not in the sense that you give up, let be or surrender because that is based on being special. But in the sense that the unedited frustration ignites a take-off into 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 its flow, so its unedited energy can ignite a take-off into the empty breath. Check out The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off into the bliss of nothingness if you want to read more about that. Read What and where are the inward and outward-facing senses if this is what you want to dig into.

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


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

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

Updated November 17, 2021

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 film slowed down to the extent that it appears to consist 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 that oneness cannot be experienced because it is an analogue movie that is played so fast that its individual frames cannot be seen. The speed merges the frames 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 A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a movie of that which is One played in slow motion.

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 consist 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 into the empty breath. It syncs the speedy thoughts in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses with the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses, so they can be further accelerated without you going insane in the world of the outward-facing 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 outward-facing senses. Thus that world is perceived from the world of the inward-facing 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 #6.1 From the inward-facing 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 their application undoes the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You do not have to sit in particular postures or do something extraordinary for take-off into the empty breath to work. There is one thing, though, you must do to make it work. But 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 them, 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 other than to totally be it.* This is not only the take-off into 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 into 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 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 than that which is One, as this 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 top and steam of grievances shoot out.

Since the cooking pot in this metaphor is your body, the above says 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 trouble 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 issue.

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 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 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues 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 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 rub 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 unique. 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. However, when it comes to viruses transferred from wild animals, such as HIV, Mers and COVID 19, and other sicknesses generated by modern living, the body generally needs help from healthcare professionals.

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.

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 that 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 #6, The inward-facing 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 in hack #4.2The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy).

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. However, most of this hack 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 unknown 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 into the empty breath.

If you have read HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end, you have probably grasped that you, in terms of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, are the basic self when perceiving everything as ‘it is what it is’ and the special self when perceiving it as ‘I know what it is,’ which is to state you know better than the brain and have established yourself as more unique than the basic self – or in the process of accomplishing 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 go back to chaos to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. You just acknowledge the suppression of it by being nothing but that. Read more about that here.

You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference [draft]

Updated November 17, 2021

It is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that you can search for the meaning of life. Yet it is not to be found there or anywhere else because it takes more than one to find something, and life is that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The way that letters are put together in various configurations makes it possible for us to attribute a special meaning to each shape. And when they are organised in rows divided by dots and commas, like in this article, they seem to make up a story written by somebody else than ourselves, thus confirming we are somebody in a world where there are more than one. But since the story that seems to prove this is pieced together of shapes attributed a meaning by ourselves, the story is made by ourselves and, therefore, does not prove there are more than that which is One.

Reality is that which is One, and since it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be experienced.

Let us imagine that the letters making up the shapes we believe in establish us as somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one are the same letters making up that which is One. Unlike in the world where we believe to be and where everything is experienced to be separated by time and space, there is no space to keep anything apart in that which is, since that requires more than one.

Hence the letters, that oneness consists of cannot be distinguished from each other, and therefore not organised into shapes, that when added together in specific ways seem to establish a story of us as somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, oneness is formless.

Everything is fused into one perpetual present in oneness, which no one can see because it takes time to see something. Hence, it is only in a world defined by time and space, there is something to behold. What you see, however, is not there. Oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no world defined by time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A world defined by time and space is a slowed-down version of the formlessness of oneness
It is not only because there is no space to separate the letters making up that which is One, that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because they move so fast that time stands still (read more about that here). Hence it is not possible to organise them linearly – or any other way for that matter.

In the context of our story about a world where there seems to be more than one versus that which is One, you could say, a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy of what oneness would look like if it could be slowed down. The more oneness is imagined to be slowed down, the more space there seems to be between the otherwise shapeless letters in that which is One, wherefore they appear to be separated from each other and have a definitive shape of their own.

Read more about the fantasy of a slowed-down version of that which is One into a world where there seems to be more than one can in A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a movie of that which is One played in slow motion.

Furthermore, there seems to be time to arrange the separated shapes in different combinations attributed with each their own meaning, so space and time establish separation as real and thus that which is One as unreal.

Therefore, the slowing down of oneness is an attempt to turn formlessness into thoughts representing specific shapes that seem to be something you can manipulate to your liking in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Hence the way back to oneness does not come from stopping the speed of thoughts via meditation or something else that makes you appear to be in control of the thoughts making up your particular shape, so you seem to be at rest and unmoved by the speed of the Earth that is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour. Read more about that here.

Neither is the way back revealed by understanding this or anything else, as understanding something requires more than one and, therefore, enhances the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One.

No matter if something is experienced to be inside or outside, it is make-believe, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness and formlessness has no sides.

To undo the belief in separation, you must give up attributing meaning to anything, so the apparent differences in your experiences do not appear to make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A journey without distance takes no time
It is not a fact, but make-believe that what and where you appear is real. It all falls apart if not attributing meaning to the letters in this article or anything else that seems to be part of the story of what and where you are because when shapes make no sense, there is nothing to separate them and thus no time and space.

Since there is no more than oneness, nobody has ever left it. Hence the way back takes no time.

The fastest way to not attribute meaning to something experienced to be there is, of course, to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One (see hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One). It promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you remember to have experienced. Hence, there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled and thus nobody to experience a world where there seems to be more than one.

Should you not want to go that fast but have the belief in being someone definitive undone over time, you can connect with the empty breath (read more about that here). It undoes this belief gradually, so you can enjoy the excitement of it while slowly but surely having it undone.

The reason for this is that the empty breath does not erase your memories as someone in a world of something. But since it resides in the nothingness from where the brain has made the experiences stored as your memories, it knows they are nothing. Thus your past does not establish what and where you believe to be now as something.

So though you appear to be somebody in a world of something, it is perceived as nothing the more you are connected with the empty breath –  just like within the context of the world of something, you are not perceived as real when you appear to be someone in the virtual world of a video game (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive).

The source of life cannot create anything, as it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to create something. For the same reason, it cannot be found. Fortunately, that is unnecessary because it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Nothing needs to be done when not perceived as something
The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing – for example vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming, and computer to smartphones to wearables – is a reminder that reality is sizeless as it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to take up space. For the same reason, oneness cannot be found in a world defined by time and space. Nothing in such a world or any other kind of world can bring you back to it, except the undoing of the belief that you are there.

That is the purpose of the empty breath as well as the other duality hacks. This they do not achieve by revealing the formlessness of oneness, as it takes more than one to do so. Besides, oneness does not need to be revealed, because it is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing else.

What needs to be revealed is that you perceive the experiences the brain fabricates from nothing as something to hide the formlessness of oneness – just like you perceive the experience of you in a dream as real, although you are not there but in your bed.

This perception is what the empty breath corrects without you having to leave the dream. So with the empty breath by your side, you do not need to stop or change anything to have the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One undone and at the same time having fun experiencing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

APPENDIX:
Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media is stressful. But that is most likely because they want to uphold a particular image of the world, and therefore need to sort it into what is adaptable and not. Since this requires you to keep a distance from the nonadaptable, you must remember the thoughts making it up. But as you also need to remember the adaptable thoughts, there are many thoughts to keep track of. That is what feels stressful and not the amount of info.

Fortunately, the more stressed you seem to be, the faster it disappears if you do not try to slow down the pace of it but use it to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. Read more about that here.

Notes on ‘the duality flow’ [draft]

Updated November 25, 2021

Comparing a desire for something with the drawback of getting it is a typical interplay of opposites in a world of duality. Going with this interaction, you feel complete and, therefore, indifferent to the outcome. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When your attitude to something is single-minded, you get a pleasurable peak experience of something specific. But as everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, it will sooner or later be replaced by displeasure. On the other hand, if your approach is dualistic, pleasure and displeasure is not disconnected but in constant interaction. Thus you are in the duality flow.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The duality flow is not about harmony and balance but the resilient relation between opposites. For example, a yoyo will not wind up without a springy drive.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You either breathe in or out. One excludes the other. Yet, the two different ways pave the way for each other. This is how the duality flow works. However, the special self prefers to be singular. But it is like avoiding breathing out. It does not work. In other words, when the special self promotes itself as only positive.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the duality flow, you do not have to choose between good and evil. They compliment each other. Therefore, since one is not better than the other, there is nothing to judge and thus not something to establish fear as a feeling on its own. Hence you see it is exposed to be complemented with trust.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being in the duality flow, you can forget about what you used to be. That was based on single-minded concepts. In the flow, you are not someone in particular but the constant movement between opposites.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since the perception ‘it is what it is’ reveals that every experience is twofold and you are in a world of duality, it brings about completeness. However, as everything comes in pairs, it also results in incompleteness. No worries, you are neither whole nor fragmented but in the motion between these opposites – just like the thrill of a see-saw comes from the constant movement between those opposites.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

That something is ugly is not a fact, but the way you have decided to perceive it. This singular Interpretation prevents you from seeing it as it is. Everything comes in pairs of opposites in a world of duality, so what you see is as beautiful as it is ugly. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Having established ’it is what it is’ as your default perception, you are always in the interaction of opposing emotions and thus feeling completed by the duality flow, instead of being unfulfilled by feelings separated from their complementary part. Read more about the perception ‘it is what it is’ in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Everything comes in pairs of opposing elements in a world of duality. Thus trying to split them into singular parts and hold onto one of them is impossible. Yet, it is possible to think you can do that by projecting negativity onto others, so you appear only positive. However, this mental stance does not change that you still have negative as well as positive thoughts. Hence you feel frustrated. On the other hand, following the duality flow brings about satisfaction because the constant interaction of opposing elements is the natural state of duality.

If you are into being and having the best, the duality flow experience will probably be a continuous movement between the best and the worst. Should you want to be spiritual, the motion is most likely between that and materialistic. The duality flow could also go between hope and hopelessness or between whatever you hold dear and its opposite. Read more about your personal polarity in You undo the belief in duality by enjoying it, Part 3.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

We usually do not think about how to digest the food we eat because it happens by itself. In the duality flow, you do not even have to plan the preparation of a meal.* It may not occur, though, in the systematised way you are used to but in the spontaneous way of nature. It does not plant seeds in rows to get the most in return but enthusiastically throws them everywhere to see what happens. Nor does it build something in a totalitarian way, such as Bauhaus or construct a meal in a categorical style like Nordic. To make long short, it is never definitive.

Therefore, although preparing the dinner seems more unpredictable when following the duality flow,** you can count on having fun and experiencing something in sync with the present moment. But it will not feel like being in a comedy if you try to repeat it another day. Every day is a new surprise. That being said, there may be a period of transition where you try to hold onto your old single-minded ways of perceiving your cooking. When it does not work and thus triggers old feelings of despair, you are about to cry.

The solution is not to stop the discomfort but to stand by it, so the definitive meaning you have decided it has can be perceived as ‘it is what it is.’ This reveals it is not singular but twofold. And that is what makes you feel complete in a world of duality. Eventually, so much that you realise you are nothing but appearance. Hence there does not seem to be someone to hide that which always was and will be there, namely non-duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What you need to prepare to go somewhere comes automatically in the duality flow. Should things not proceed as you expect, you are not afraid of getting upset because you know everything comes in pairs. Therefore, since your concern is complemented with unconcern, the duality flow goes on. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The satisfaction you get from being in the duality flow is not like what you get from something perceived as specific. This is because you are always afraid of losing that, whereas it is impossible to lose the duality flow.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, there is no sense in searching for something specific. This is such a relief.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you want the satisfaction of the duality flow, it is essential not to focus on anything in particular. The same applies if you like to undo the belief in duality. Therefore, since the perception ‘it is what it is’ cancels out anything specific, you kill two birds with one stone by applying it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

None of the opposing elements in the pairs of duality is essential. Instead, it is their interaction that matters because it makes up the duality flow. This you will want to follow when you are tired of feeling incomplete.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you feel you have nowhere to go and do not insist on this being a definitive feeling but counteract it with going everywhere, you are in the duality flow. The same applies if you are in the interplay of irritation and relaxation. However,  the duality flow is not about the opposing elements in the duality pairs but their interaction. That is what makes you feel complete – just like it is the interplay of breathing in and out that makes you feel content.

And just like none of the opposing elements in the breath works by themselves, nor do any other elements in the pairs of duality. Hence you cannot always feel positive. The feeling only works when contrasted by negativity. So if you are not in the constant interplay of positivity and negativity, what you believe in feeling when you claim to be positive is a concept conjured up by suppressing negativity via meditation, for example. This is like separating yourself from either breathing in or out. You need them both.

To make long short, in a world of duality the solution to everything is to go with the duality flow by perceiving your reaction to something as ‘it is what it is.’

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Going with the duality flow, hate does not make you frown but smile :) Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius, a long time ago, conditioned himself to hide his sorrow behind justified anger and disgust. That changed when he did not try to hide or rationalise his grief but perceived his reaction to it as ‘it is what it is,’ This revealed that inside his deep sorrow, a little boy was floating on waves of nectar.

Therefore, since he saw his sorrow was paired with mellowness, he did not try to fence off the grief anymore to feel good. Actually, feeling sad automatically triggered the happiness inside it. Hence feeling happy/sad became his basic experience of the duality flow.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Importance is a single-minded notion that has been separated from its buddy, worthlessness. Thus it brings about loneliness. But in the duality flow, importance interacts with worthlessness, wherefore you get togetherness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is not a matter of the body relaxing, but how you perceive your reaction to it. If your response is that you feel troubled, you see your body as the source of that. Yet there is nothing in the body you can make better to not feel disturbed by it because the problem is not there. But if your reaction to the body is perceived as ‘it is what it is,’ troubled is contracted with untroubled. And since the idea of a body is a product of duality, this twofoldness makes it feel at home.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Having followed the duality flow for some time, the specific state of mind you used to conjure up to feel at ease is forever out of reach. Now everything is twofold. Sadness interacts with gladness and death with life. What this means, you do not know. Nor do you care because you feel complete. Hence there is no need for a specific state of mind or perspective to escape feeling disturbed.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the duality flow, you feel complete, so although you may seem as clumsy as before, it does not make you feel wrong.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is relaxing and energising, not to control your appearance but go with the duality flow – like you go with the flow of the waves when swimming. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you succeed in letting go of your hatred, you also get rid of the ability to feel love because, in a world of duality, everything comes in pairs of opposing elements that define each other. Hate defines love and vice versa, so you cannot have one without the other.

To get back the love you ignorantly discarded, you perceive  the hate you judge others have as ‘it is what it is.’ This reveals hatred is coupled with love. Therefore, since you can only see what you have, there is love and hate in you. Read here about seeing your repressed emotions in others.

This revelation brings about other dualistic experiences, which generate even more. Actually, so many that you, eventually, forget to define yourself and others as somebody at all. Getting there is a process.*** But not being defined as someone in a dualistic world is instant because there is nothing between duality and non-duality. Actually, there is no duality since non-duality is formless and therefore endless.

Fortunately, there is nothing to hide that when you are not defined as someone in a world of duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you get angry, you say, »So what! Everything comes in pairs of opposites that define each other. That is the way of duality. Thus I will soon feel cool.« That is why there is no need for forgiveness or anything else to not feel bad.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the duality flow, your response to something is not singular but twofold. Therefore, as nothing is considered precisely right or wrong, there is not anything that seems to be a problem. But since most people are identified with their troubles, they want them to remain. Thus they fence off the duality flow by holding onto conditioned ways of responding. For example, they may perceive their reaction to this article as distinctly upsetting.

However, the cause of misery is the wish to be unique. To uphold the special picture you have painted of yourself, you must constantly separate yourself from everything judged as unfit. Hence you feel incomplete, whereas you feel complete in the duality flow.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings logically concludes that since it takes more than one to have a shape, oneness is formless and therefore endless. Consequently, there is no more than that which is One. But since it takes more than one to read this, you believe it is possible to be and have more than one.

No worries, continuing as if you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you honour your choice to believe this is possible. Hence you can choose to undo it. If you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is One, this does not occur gradually but instantly (see hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One).

But since the temporal length of an event is an illusion, you may take your time and begin following the duality flow so you can enjoy appearing to be and have more than that which is One, until this experience, like anything else that has a beginning, ends without any effort of yours.


*) This is not to say that you never need to think ahead to get something done. But thoughts for that come to you automatically when you are in the duality flow.

**) Actually, preparing something is not more unpredictable when following the duality flow. It only seems so because when you are not in the duality flow, you leave everything out of your perception of putting something together that does not confirm you are in control.

***) This process is not about avoiding the word ‘I’ or stopping something else but gradually realising that the experience of being someone is fake – just like you do not turn aside cars and money in Monopoly, although nothing there is real.

The fake link between immateriality and materiality [DRAFT]

Updated November 16, 2021

Those who think their body should be transformed and become more spiritual need to be more physical. The body is solely material. Hence it cannot be mixed with something immaterial. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thanks for passing by. Alexius is still in the process of exploring how to communicate this hack. Hence, you might be better off reading another one. But you are, of course, welcome to take your chances.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from reading about the perception ‘it is what it is.’ This perception syncs with the brain’s script. Thus you feel satisfied. See hack #4.2 Being a self or no-self.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The assumed link between a problem in the psyche and the body, or vice versa, is a hallucination. Materiality and immateriality do not mix. Consequently, there is no psychosomatic disorder to heal but physical and psychological issues that must be dealt with material and immaterial. This is a process over time. But it can be shortened by perceiving your opinion about the psychosomatic disorder as ‘it is what it is.’

This hack explores the different ways to undo the belief that physical and non-physical issues can mix. But as always, in the case of a world where there seems to be more than one, it could have been better covered. However, the purpose of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not to present a complete explanation of how and why we appear to be somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, as we are not there or anywhere else, since it takes more than one to be somewhere, and there is no more than that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To turn the basic self into a special one, everything judged as embarrassing you exclude from the perception of yourself. You hide the banned thoughts and feelings from the awareness by combining them with physical feelings coming from weak or deformed parts of the body. Hence psychological feelings in the future are experienced as physical sensations. So when a suppressed psychological issue is triggered, you are not aware of it because you think your experience is physical.

No matter what medicine you take or the diet you follow to stop the discomfort in the body, an abstract feeling of pain remains, namely the psychological issue hidden in the physical experience of the body. This pain comes from the psyche and does not go away before it is dealt with in an immaterial way.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

How can you claim to do things your own way when you do not know who you are? Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Although the clothes and the body wearing them seem closely related, they have no understanding of each other. The clothes have no love or anything else to give the body and vice versa. Likewise, immateriality and materiality have nothing to give each other. Their reality is too different. That is why psychologically concepts of how to attain physical wellness do not work.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Thinking you are in control, you are under enormous pressure. You must always look for thoughts that can be used to compose a perception of your experiences, so they seem to prove that you, not the brain, are in control.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The body is made to interact with structures that, like itself, is experienced to be material. That is why the body interprets your attempts to integrate it with non-physical feelings or ideas of spirituality as an attack on its integrity, which it must defend itself against.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To think that you can hide unpleasant feelings in the body is like thinking that you can hide them in a wall. Emotions are immaterial. Hence it is impossible to bury them in something material. However, it is possible to believe that this can be done. If you do that, you look at the body to find hidden problems, even though physical problems consist of nothing but material elements, and the hidden issues are in your perception of them.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You will never find anything physical in the digital world. Likewise, you will never find something physical in the psychological sphere or vice versa. That is why the concept of a body-mind connection is a scam.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you want to make them last, you must combine them with something more lasting, like physical feelings. Immateriality and materiality, however, do not mix, so the combination of them is purely speculative. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The nature of non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you experience a specific one to be sticky, it is not due to them but to you. Maybe you want an emotion to last, which you achieve by combining it with a part of the body.

If it is an exceptional experience of love you want to keep, you combine it with a pleasant physical feeling in the heart, for example. But if it is a particular memory of hate you want to hold onto, you link it with pain in the chest. However, just like a wall cannot contain the wind, it is impossible to fuse a body with abstract feelings. Yet, it is possible to mentally blend physicality and psychology so that every time you feel a specific kind of love, you think you feel something nice in the heart. And every time you feel hatred towards someone, you sense something weird in the chest.

Since you feel something in the heart or chest that is not there, you have a problem believed to be in the body, which cannot be addressed. That is until you split this psychosomatic disorder into a material and immaterial issue, so you can deal with each one on its own term. In this case, you confront why you need to hold onto a specific feeling of love or hate. Then you consult a doctor to see if the heart is the problem. But most likely, it is the muscles.

However, most people do not want to wipe out the idea of a body-mind connection. On the contrary, they want to uphold their imagined union of immaterial and material issues as real, as then it seems possible to appear as if they have a feeling they do not have. Should this feeling be questioned, they refer to the bodily symptoms they claim is caused by that feeling. They love talking about body-mind connection because that makes it look like they control themselves, even though they do not know who they are.

If you want to undo the imagined combination of immateriality and materiality, a willingness to not remember what and where you imagine being is all that is required. When being nobody is acknowledged, there is no need to make feelings last to define you as somebody.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you have combined a psychological feeling with a physical one, you want this combo to hide or prolong the psychological feeling. Therefore, since you need the part of the body from where you get the physical feeling to remain as it is, you resist healing it. That is until you do not have a need to hide or prolong the psychological feeling you imagine to have hidden there.

Should this split-up of a psychosomatic issue seem problematic, you perceive your reaction to a feeling in the body that seems not only factual but also abstract as ‘it is what it is.’ This renders your response indefinable. Thus the body is set free from your opinion, so it can outline the physical part of the combo and heal it in agreement with that. Since a psychological feeling only is sticky if manipulated into oblivion or something lasting, this part of the combo returns to its temporary nature and passes on when looked at.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When we project the weaknesses of our personality onto the way we feel vulnerable parts of the body, such as the stomach, our perceived flaws seem to have been erased from our awareness. That is how we fool ourselves into believing we have been transformed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Healing the psychological part of a psychosomatic combo takes no time. All psychological feelings are fleeting, so they pass on when looked at. The physical part you deal with by stepping back so the body can heal itself without having to live up to your expectations of wellness and wholeness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You exclude from your awareness what you do not like about yourself by imagining you combine it with the feeling of a vulnerable part of the body. Thus your psychological problems seem to be hidden inside a physical problem.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

For years there has been an unhealthy idea about uniting body, mind and soul with you as the master of the combo. Unfortunately, this approach has done much harm to the body. First of all, you are not the master of your appearance – only the perception of it. Secondly, the body is a physical unit built to deal with material matters and not mental, emotional or metaphysical ones – like the digital media where you read, this is made to deal with the digital world and not the physical one.

In other words, you cannot blend immateriality with materiality. However, you can imagine doing it and that your psychological problems, therefore, are buried in the body. But it only knows physical issues, so it feels attacked by something unknown when you attempt to dump psychological problems in the body. Hence it shoots off here and there. And you end up with psychosomatic disorders that cannot be healed until you are willing to bring back the psychological issues to the immaterial sphere.

Doing that may at first seem like you are going insane or being tortured. No worries, as long as you do not edit the unpleasantness, it will not remain for long because the nature of psychological feelings is to pass on when looked at unedited. Read more about this process in Sadness is a close friend of gladness. When the psychological issues have vanished, you do not have psychosomatic disorders but physical issues. Fortunately, the body is an expert in dealing with physical problems. Should it need assistance from a health care professional, it will let you know.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you see a scary movie, it is experienced to be real because it feels like the fear manifests in your body. The film, however, does not have the ability to scare you and what you feel in the body is purely physical. It is not caused by the events in the movie but because you perceive them to be so frightening that you tighten up the body.

You perceived them like that because you are conditioned to interpret certain things as scary. And to make it real that this is what you feel, you project the idea on a body part that already is tense and seems to get tenser when you give it your attention. Thus it feels as if it is the movie has an effect on your body.

Sometimes, it goes the other way around. For example, you have a stomach ache, but it does add meaning to your life. So you imagine, the pain is caused by a psychological issue from your past. Unfortunately, this perceived combination results in a incurable psychosomatic disorder – especially because the psychological part most likely is made up. Hence there is nothing to heal but the belief that there is someone who has conditioned itself to feel this.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being in the natural state of happiness does not mean that apparently negative things do not happen. For example, you might think it is too hot but since you perceive your reaction to this experience as ‘it is what it is,’ your response makes it just as entertaining to be hot as cool. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It does not rain because you feel sad, nor does the rain has the power to make you feel bad. That is unless you choose to perceive such a course and effect. Likewise, the body cannot make you feel sad, nor does feeling sad makes the body terrible unless you imagine such a connection.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The body does not want to be used as a means to manifest mental ideas of being balanced, centred or connected with higher consciousness, so it fights your abuse of it by tightening itself.

Therefore, the tensions in the body can only be healed when you withdraw your mental assault on the body. This is done by perceiving your reaction to the violation of the body as ‘it is what it is’. Since that takes the power of your misguidance, you cannot help but laugh. You may also cry. But that is how it should be, as everything in a world of duality comes in pairs.

This makes you feel complete but maybe also silly because you are no longer pushing the body to the extremes to feel young and more unique. But then again, since everything comes in pairs, silliness is complemented with wisdom. Thus you feel insightful even though you are not unique.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To prevent feelings in the body from being processed by the brain, part of the body is desensitised by perceiving it to be connected with mental ideas of balance and whatnot. If this benumbing is in the upper part of the neck, the flow between the body and the brain is cut off. Thus you can decide what the body wants and process it as if there is a body-mind connection.

But there is no such combination. On the contrary, the body is material and sees immaterial ideas as an attack on its integrity. Thus, it fights them by continually keeping the shoulders backwards or forward to hold the body in attack or defence mode. On top of that, it might lock the hips and/or the loin to balance the upper body’s issues with others in the lower part.

Whatever way it works out, you hold onto it because, as already said, these tensions disrupt the natural flow of communication between the body and the brain, so you can bypass the biological system and impose the body with your mental ideas of wellness.

In this way, the body is used to establish the belief that you are in charge. The body suffers from this egoism, and so do you because believing to be in control, you are out of sync with your nature, which is to serve the brain like a self-driving car follows The Cloud.

You are nothing without the brain, except in your own imagination of being an independent being. But this idea does not change anything other than your perception is not aligned with the brain, wherefore you do not notice the happiness the brain reserves for its creations.

It may, at first, seem dangerous not having the body in a position of defence or attack. But since the basic self perceives everything as ´it is what it is,´ it is in sync with the brain and thus continiously injected with shots of happiness. Consequently, any kind of feeling, whether seen as positive or negative, is amusing.

Regarding Alexius’ Duality Hacks, it does not matter how you have mistreated your body to uphold a perception of being its master. The hacks bring you into a state of not-knowing in which the slate is wiped clean, so when you return to the consciousness of being someone, you are the basic self. And since it perceives every reaction it has to something as ‘it is what it is,’ it is in sync with the brain and, therefore, in the happiness that comes from being aligned with its maker.


NOTE: The article is part of hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues. It is a rough draft that continuously is updated.

If you believe there is more than one, everything requires at least two

Updated November 20, 2021

It takes two to define a person in the world.

It takes two to be defined as different, but it also takes two to see that differences do not make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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 that seem to value you as someone more evolved and better than others will make you anything other than what you already are 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 can 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 not focus on anything in particular.

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 might 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 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 by the brightness of the Enlightenment of that which is one but fenced it off, so all you get are 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 outward-facing 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 outward-facing 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 stunning 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 enthusiasm 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 something better and more spiritual. But as being changed 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 fake 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. 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:

You know nothing but that there is no more than oneness, when you are to be compared to ‘the Enlightenment of that which is One’

Updated November 25, 2021

thegrandview1

It is effortless 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. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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 oneness. Most others assume 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 transcend the self, for example. 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 to be 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 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 oneness 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 not somebody 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. On the contrary, 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 online all the time. The light of the sun is never seen – only the light of the screen. Likewise, you never see the light from that which is One when you believe 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 appears 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. So, 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, since 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, 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 can 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 straightforward. 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 Alexius’ Duality Hacks, except for the Enlightenment of that which is One, takes you there. However, there is no way 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 inward-facing senses, but if you prefer to remain in the world of the outward-facing 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 completeness.

Another approach that also sets off from the world of the outward-facing 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 #7 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 The inward-facing 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 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. Alexius follows the empty breath, which like an automatic gear shift between the above approaches, 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.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, it seems there is constantly something 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 enhance the belief in being someone, but as a means to undo it. In the context of spirituality, Alexius knows nothing, because it is that which is One and it takes more than one to know something. This article is written in that context.

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 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 what he writes is based on understanding.

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 regarding 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:

‘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

Updated November 25, 2021

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 eternal bliss try to seduce you into believing that they know how to find shelter from the world. But how can they claim there is something to find in a world they describe as an illusion or a dream? Everything found in a dream is equally illusionary, no matter if it seems to be found inside or outside of an appearance there or whether it is perceived as 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 since 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. You cannot see what is real because 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 that your appearance is as fleeting like a dream, you may also grasp 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 A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a movie of that which is One played in slow motion.

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 off 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 appears 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 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 everything out of you, so there is nothing to fall through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness. That is, if you do not determine the first stages of the black hole to look like a zen sign, for example. In that case, you are back in a world defined by time and space. Hence you are better off forgetting Alexius’ desAlexius’description hole 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, as 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 with appearing to be someone definitive, it is frustrating to only have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. Still, 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. In contrast, 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. 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, 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. However, believing to be someone in such a world can be helpful in regard 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 completeness or hack #7 Alone together is the key to that which is One.

In a world of linear time, this appears to take time. In the process, however, Alexius´ DuaAlexius’ks 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 #6.1 From the inward-facing 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.

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 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 the formlessness of oneness, so that is not possible.

That is why you are bound to feel empty if believed to be someone specific. Therefore, the solution to feeling empty is 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 does not believe but pretend to be someone.

‘The Enlightenment of that which is one’ cannot be seen

Updated November 27, 2021

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. The Enlightenment of that which is One reveals that there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. This is why there is nothing in the Enlightenment of that which is One going back through a black hole into 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 ideas about it. And then again, doing so will not help, as it will enhance the belief that you are an autonomous entity able to do something specific. And it is due to this belief that the Enlightenment of that which is One seems hidden. So do not try to implement the following in your belief system, but use it to have 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 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 to have a door or anything 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 precisely so. That which is you is not imagining being 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 impossible. For the same reason, it is not possible to be in that which is One. No worries. It is unnecessary because there is no difference between that which is you and that which is One.

Therefore, the above is 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. 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 oneness is very dull 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, its purpose has been accomplished, namely to make us feel alive.

There is no way to achieve the Enlightenment of that which is One, as that 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 establish 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, which is incredibly dull 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 completely bored, so that there is nothing sensed – not even that a highly 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 higher 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 dull that you prefer to imagine being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. However, the price of this fantasy 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. Neither did anybody else to whom he gave a mantra they should repeat to slow down the mind. First, it is impossible 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 the opposite of what you need if the formlessness of oneness is what you long for. Oneness is a very speedy affair. So fast 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 to give each individual person a spiritual solution, thought to be Enlightenment.

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

The political-minded group seems to have given up making the world better. The spiritual group has replaced their lofty visions of Enlightenment with more down-to-earth ways of healing the Earth, 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 a construction of thoughts made in the brain’s machinery. 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.
