++ The ins and outs of the inner senses

84c027e7-78f2-48fd-a6fe-7861dbbac405

There is no structure in the empty breath like there is in the world of the outer senses, where everything is organised into contrast, so it seems that the world is divided in right and wrong. As it requires much effort to continuously uphold the judgments of good and bad, it is much more fun to let the empty breath take over and guide you back and forth in the worlds of the outer and inner senses, so that the relaxation you get from not being able to divide the abstract world of the inner senses into contrasts of good and bad becomes the foundation for perceiving the apparent differences in the world of the outer senses to not make a difference. The animation is grabbed from the web.

It may seem frightening to not give your full attention to the structured world of the outer senses, and instead be in automatic gear via the unstructured flow of the empty breath. This fear though is unfounded because, without the constant control, that is needed to keep the world of the outer senses organised in the way you expect it should be, you have a laid-back life there when guided by the empty breath.

To keep up the appearance of being someone specific you must always be vigilant towards what others think. Yet you do not know, what they think. It is something you think, they think. In other words, it is nobody else than yourself, that you are up against.

It will guide you back and forth between the outer and inner senses, so that the relaxation you get from the world of the inner senses, which contrary to the outer senses is not based on control, will be the basis of how the world of the outer senses is experienced.

The empty breath can be felt within the non-definitive borders of a ball like thing with the lower part of it passing through the abdomen or the stomach and the upper the head or above it. The swing of the empty breath, that may be the most common aspect of it, is shaped like a curved yin yang line – but less curved and not with a definitive form – within this borderless ball. It is felt inside the body swinging from the back to the front of it or up and down, but it can also be felt swinging from side to side and everywhere in between these directions.

Sensing all directions simultaneously is like feeling no swing at all – as if the world stands still. Mostly though it is the swing from the back to the front of the body that is felt, maybe combined with the up/downswing. The swing may be felt in the abdomen, stomach or chest or all those places at once.

The empty breath can be felt in many ways, among others like id you are riding on two big yin-yangs like waves but without the holes in alignment with the rhythm of the breath. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The swing of the empty breath is powered by an extremely fast and chaotic energy, that is sensed both inside and outside the body within the non-definitive borders of the ball that make up the empty breath, as if it is going here, there and everywhere without going anywhere. It feels like you are a transparent fountain of joy. And going around the non-definitive border of the ball feels like surfing two waves formed like the two parts of a yin-yang sign (with no dots in it). In general, you just feel one of the aspects of the empty breath at a time. But may you also feel aspects not described in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

This article, however, is not especially about the empty breath, so if you want a more detailed explanation of how it feels read the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like or read Take-offs to the empty breath for connecting with it or The nature of ´the empty breath´ to learn about its purpose. But now onto the subject of this article, namely the inner senses.

Fearing the empty breath is not unfounded, if you want to remain as someone special in a world defined by time and space, because the empty breath guides you into the world of the inner senses, where you are nobody.

So if you fear the empty breath, you know it is because you believe to be someone definitive, and as this belief is undone by the empty breath, there is nothing to fear if you connect with it.

The empty breath is not a step to something better because it is a state of not knowing and so is the other duality hack in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. For this reason, there is no way to know, if they differ from each other or in any way overlap each other. And so what. There is nobody to care about that in a state of not-knowing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The world of the inner senses
In the case of Alexius, the main period for mostly experiencing the world of the inner senses and having glimpses of enlightenment is just before going to sleep, at which time he gives the world of the outer senses minimum attention so he can travel in the world of the inner ones.

This often starts as a perfect moment induced by his connectedness with the empty breath. And as this is a state of not-knowing and so is having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, he does not know if these state-of knowing differs from each other, or if they are intertwined. And neither does he know long time a state of not-knowing lasts.

Yet he knows it comes and goes and that a state of not-knowing probably lasts less than 20 minutes, since a brain will go into coma, if it is not kept active with thoughts about how to develop what you appear to be so you seem to become and have more (see the article Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one).

If a state of not-knowing differs from being induced by a take-off to the empty breath, glimpses of enlightenment, inclusiveness, pretending to be someone definitive, seeing symbols of life in the world or being alone together, which are the main duality hacks (see the table of contents) is not to say, since it is a state of not-knowing.

When he wakes up in the morning he also knows that the cure for believing to be someone definitive is to be in a state of not-knowing. Whether it is triggered by the empty breath or another duality hack does not matter. What matters is that the pure bliss of a state of not-knowing (see the article Inclusiveness is a state of not-knowing – and that is pure bliss) is achieved totally effortlessly without the help of thoughts and feelings, so when the state is over and you again seems to have thoughts and feelings, you know you do not need them.

The wording in this image seems to suggest what new age people like to believe, namely that even though almost all thoughts are illusionary, at least some of them are real, so if you look hard enough you will find the truth. But as there is nobody to look for anything other than the ´self´, any kind of searching or self-restraint seems to prove you are a self, and thus an illusion since there is no self. In other words, all thoughts are illusionary and the way to expose them is to not participate in the race for more – regardless it appears to be so-called spiritual or materialistic – because believing to be a ´self´ is all about being and having more than the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

But when he forgets that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, thoughts and feelings seem important because if interpreted to be caused by a world where there seems to be more than one, they can be used to prove he is someone in it.* However, in the below description of a blissful night, where most of his awareness is on the abstract world of the inner senses, he is reminded there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

When it is the empty breath that takes care of the switch between the inner and outer senses, you do not where the border between them is – or if there is one.

A night with blissful on and off moments of not-knowing
Laying in the bed with a sleeping mask** on and earphones with triple flange sleeves* plugged into his ears, the transparent sound of the empty breath*** seems to transport him into worlds of light, where lucid flowers or whole universes unfold in an extreme speed or in slow-mo until thoughts or feelings are trying to surface and sleep sets in. Going into a deep sleep, the visions of light continue, and when he wakes up early in the morning they turn into ethereal harmonies.

It does not seem exciting to me anymore to travel in worlds of light. I am rather naturally attracted to leaving everything behind and as nothing sucked though a black hole into that which is one. It seems though, that I am to return in order to complete my non teachings. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It seems like ages ago when Alexius enjoyed travelling in worlds of light. Nowadays he prefers to leave everything behind and as nothing float through a black hole**** into the formlessness of that which is one. It seems that writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is his way of leaving everything behind. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Actually, this is a typical description from many years ago, where the glimpses of enlightenment were exciting journeys in the enchanted worlds of light. Nowadays he does not care much for such visions, that mostly are exciting because they to some extent are recognisable, so instead, it is visions of abstract nothingness. That is until they swirl together around a so-called black hole****, which is neither exciting or relaxing. It just is.

The vibration, that Aum or Sohang symbolises*****, is another aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one, that can be experienced through the inner senses. In the case of Alexius, it pops up every now and then during the day as a natural extension of the empty. The taste of the enlightenment of that which is one also pops up – for example when he is writing about it.

Enlightenment of that which is one is impersonal, but the vague memories of it is filtered by the personality, and as it is not able to embrace one perpetual present, it is described as a personal experience in time and space. Glimpses of enlightenment is solely a personal experience.

Eyes cannot see – they translate, or it is rather the brain that translate all the otherwise meaningless info it receives through the eyes according to how it is conditioned to see the world. If it receives info that does not fit into its image of the world, it twist it until it does. In other words, you have no idea about what is written in this article or what is in the world. If you acknowledge this you do not need to read my non teachings, because this acknowledgement bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Eyes cannot see – they translate******, or rather it is the brain that translates all the otherwise meaningless info, it receives from the eyes, which it does according to how it is conditioned to see the world. If it receives info that does not fit into its conditioning, it twists it until it does. In other words, you have no idea about what is written in this article or what is happening in the world. Acknowledging this is to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You do not know what is written in this article, because what you think you read is coloured by your interpretation
Be aware that the above is how Alexius experiences the world of the inner senses when the world of the outer senses gets less attention or absolutely none. But just like you and he probably experience things in the world of the outer senses differently, the same may apply to the glimpses of enlightenment from the world of the inner senses – and regarding the enlightenment of that which is one the vague memories of not being someone at all are most likely selective.

In other words, the descriptions you get in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings of the enlightenment of that which is one and the glimpses of it are not meant to be absolute. Besides, you have actually not read the descriptions, but your interpretations of them.*****

The night can be full of restless dreams, that seem very real, until you quietly wake up to the sound of ethereal music, that cancels out the confusion of the night, so that you full of clarity get out bed.

Neither is his experience the same every night. Some nights thoughts or emotions seem to take over and take him into the world of the outer senses. No worries, if that happens to you too. It is a great way to see, that thoughts and emotions have no power, and that power is not necessary when there is no need to be someone at all.

The key to opening up to the world of the inner senses is purpose, namely the purpose of not using the outer senses to experience a tangible world outside of you.

If the the purpose of putting on a sleeping mask is to cancel out the ligt from the world of the outer senses, you will be in the light of the inner senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If the purpose of putting on a sleeping mask is to cancel out the light from the world of the outer senses, there will be lucid light coming from the world of the inner senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Anything perceived as definable blocks out the full tour of the inner senses
You cannot do something to be in the world of the inner senses, because the intention of doing something in order to be or have something only works in the world of the outer senses, as that is experienced to be tangible. But for the very same reason, you can do something to not experience the world of the outer senses – for example putting on a sleeping mask.

Best to forget all the descriptions from Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings about the glimpses of enlightenment, as you may interpret them to be something specific, and that cannot be replicated in the world of the inner senses.

If you remember the last time you travelled in incredible worlds of lucid light and you want more excitement like that, you will not get it, as defining glimpses of enlightenment in this way turn them into an experience of the outer senses, because only there does it seem possible to experience something specifically more than once. In other words, if trying to interpret the glimpses of the enlightenment in the way you do in the world of the outer senses, there is no more glimpses to experience.

When you completely turn off the outer senses – or rather are willing to do so – you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. No image can be shown of that because it cannot be experienced since the experience of something requires more than one. Glimpses of enlightenment, however, can be experienced. One of the last glimpses you may have before there is no more consciousness, as it requires more than one to be conscious of something, could be something like this image looking like a horse head, which is what a so-called black hole**** sometimes look like just before there is nothing but light. There is not someone to know if the light is exploding out of the hole or into it, neither does anybody know that there is nothing else than light with no colour or substance until there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To turn off the outer senses partially or fully
The easiest way to switch between the outer and inner senses is, of course, to let the empty breath take care of it – see The nature of ´the empty breath´ – but until you are willing to choose not to choose yourself but to be guided by the empty breath the below suggestion may be of help.

You turn off the outer senses by not selecting specific thoughts and feelings to be excluded, but instead include them, so that there are no contrasts left – for example, good and bad – and consequently, nothing to define you as someone definitive. If the inclusion is not complete but partial you have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, and if it is complete there is not someone to hide the enlightenment of that which is one.

Do not pay too much attention to the world of the outer senses, when in the world of the inner senses, but let it be there somewhere in the background. When moving in the world of the outer senses, it is often best hardly to pay attention to the inner world except as a blissful memory, that helps you to focus on what you seem to be doing in the world of the outer senses without being deceived by it.

There are no rules though, so there may be times where the two worlds seem to mix in a beneficial way, but why not fully enjoy the taste of wine on the premises of the world of the outer senses, and totally space out when you fly through amazing worlds of abstract light in the world of the inner senses.

In other words, when you are solely in the world of the inner senses, the belief in being someone in a specific body defined by time and space is undone by the enlightenment of that which is one, and so you do not appear to be in a world defined by time and space anymore. Neither do you appear to be somewhere else, because the belief in being someone is undone. Thus it is not an out-of-body experience. It is not an experience at all.

In the enlightenment of that which is one, there is no consciousness of a body or that you ever seemed to be or have one, because it takes more than one to be conscious about something. In other words, there is no more than that which always was and always will be, namely the formlessness of that which is one, since formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

**) If the Silk Eye Mask For Sleeping and Shure SE215 Earphone with Triple Flange Sleeves, that Alexius uses when going to sleep, are the best ones for turning off the outer senses and go into the world of the inner ones, he does not know, but they seem to work for him. The earphones, by the way, may be one of the best in its price range for listening to music from the world of the outer senses. In relation to turning off the hearing sense of the outer world though, it does not matter what earphones you use, as long as they are used with Triple Flange Sleeves, because they are what so effectively cancels out the sound from what is judged to be outside of you.

What sort of external music resembles the internal one

R-699747-1323974749.jpeg

If you are used to the ethereal music, that the inner senses reveal when the outer ones are partly turned off, memories of these harmonies may be triggered when listening to external music from artists like Charalambides. This image that is grabbed from the web is a cover from their album ´A Vintage Burden´.

Mozart might have gotten the inspiration for his compositions from hearing ethereal music inside of him. This is not to say that his music sounds exactly like that. Instead, it is to say that the flow of his music resembles the effortless elegance and beauty of ethereal harmonies originating from the inside when the outer senses are more or less closed. That is except when Mozart wants does not want to impress the audience by adding more action to the compositions than the natural flow of it calls for because ethereal harmonies never built up to a peak.

Church bells and similar sounds that do not add up to something specific, resemble inner ethereal music. Not the monotonic pattern of repetition though like in for example church bells because ethereal music is the music of chaotic harmonies.

Contemporary electronic music that consists of glitches and other sonic artefacts spaced out or slowed played steel guitar, analogue or synth sounds mixed with for example piano loops, chimes and bells into ambient textures in very long tracks, that seem to be without beginning or end, have much resemblance to the ethereal music revealed by the inner senses in the organic way it appears to move on without going nowhere. The electronic music though has a lot harder edge to it and a less transparent sound than inner music, which has a crystal clear but distant sound to it with no sonic artefacts needed to produce the ethereal harmonies.

The kind of new-age music, that are dreamy symphonies of otherworldly states – Karunesh and Marsen Jules, for example – does not resemble ethereal music, but the new-age ideas of us all wakening up in a merry-go-round world, where everything is always right, which of course is an illusion, because something cannot be right without something being wrong.

Ethereal music is not a dream about something better, neither is it symphonic or anything that suggests else a sequence of something happening in time, whether that is to wake up or whatnot. And it is definitely not otherworldly, as it is echoes of that which is one and there is no other world than that since it is formless and therefore endless.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, however, the random sounds making up ethereal music may be remembered as if they fit together like in a symphony, because there is a sense of bliss or stillness from these random harmonies united in one perpetual present.

Appearing in the world with eyes and ears wide open it is evident that all experiences are deceptions, so Alexius see no sense in meditating or do anything else to experience higher states of mind. If he wants to relax from appearing in the world of the outer senses, he shuts them down by not following the urge to get excited from specific experiences. In other words, when not trying to escape boredom by finding something to get excited about, the world of the inner senses opens up.

When he appears to be in the world of the outer senses, he deals with it by letting the outer senses do the navigation, because the inner ones are hopeless in regards to that. But they are great in regards to how to perceive it. In the case of Alexius, he does not listen much to external music resembling internal music. In general, he prefers mundane music, when dealing with the world of the outer senses.


A list of articles mentioning the inner ethereal music:
This article is a continuation previous article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment in regards to ethereal music, which also is mentioned in the next article The ins and outs of the inner senses plus in the below ones:

A list of modern music that resembles the inner ethereal music:
Below is a list of electronic artists producing soundscapes, that in each their own way resemblance the inner music. There may be many other artists, but these were the ones popping up when Alexius was writing this article. Please be aware that although the inner music is impersonal, trying to point out specific music that represents it is personal. If you click on the links, you can hear the music on the website Boomkat, which specialises in electronic music.

On Boomkat, you can also listen to, and buy if you like, two of Alexius favourite musicians, namely Lubomyr Melnyk and James Blackshaw, who are influenced by minimalist composers and European classical music, incorporating overtones, drones and repeating pattern. Drones although only in the case James Blackshaw.

The album they have made together, The Watchers, almost brings you in a state of not-knowing. Not completely, however, as you are dependent on the atmosphere that the music creates and in a state of not-knowing, you are dependent on nothing. Click here to enjoy the last track from the album.

The inner senses versus the outer ones

The animation is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
The outer senses is not a contrast to the inner senses in the way black is to white, for example. It is not that the outer senses are on the outside and the inner senses on the inside. Their names rather mean that the outer senses are geared to experience a world, that is perceived to be outside of you, whereas the inner senses help you to experience a world that does not seems to be separated from you.

The inner senses is used to see a world, that does not appear to be outside of you. But it does not mean it is inside of you. There is neither anything inside or outside, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

But scientifically speaking the world consists of empty space, so whatever tangible appearances you seem to experience is make-believe, regardless of where they appear to be. It is also make-believe, that there is someone who experience is experiencing this. See Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

To undo the belief in being someone in a tangible world, it may be beneficial to not only use the outer senses but also the inner ones, as what is experienced with them does not seem tangible so you may start questioning the existence of a tangible world and you like someone there.

Often those having visions via the inner senses conclude, that the world experienced with the outer ones is an illusion, and they are right – but they are not right when they go on concluding the world experienced with the inner senses is real.

It requires more than one to experience something, and as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one because what is formless is endless, no experience is real. Nevertheless turning down the volume of the outer senses, that in the context of the physical world operate below the eyebrows, and turning up the volume of on the inner ones, which means to partially shift awareness to above the outer senses, makes it easier to undo the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

There is nothing real to find in the world of the outer senses – neither in the world of the inner ones, but there it may be easier to uncover the illusion of the senses, so that there is nothing to hide that which cannot be sensed, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

When you are not experiencing something specific, you are not someone definitive. The animation is grabbed from the web.

When you are not experiencing something specific, you are not someone definitive. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The more you do not try to define anything, which is easier in the world of the inner senses, as there are not so many established concepts about what it is, the less there is someone definitive experiencing anything. And when there is no belief in being someone definitive, the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome.

For some, it seems easier having the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one undone in the abstract world of the inner senses. But the belief in separation can also be undone while experiencing the world of the outer senses,

Read for examples the hacks Pretending to be someone definitive, Seeing symbols of life in the world, Inclusiveness is a perfect moment for having the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one undone by using the illusion of such a world, as a means to do that. You can find them in the table of contents.

A world, where there seems to be more than one is make-believe. Yet it is you who decide what to believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A world, where there seems to be more than one is make-believe. But it is you who decide what to believe. What you decide to believe reflects whether you desire to be more than that which is one or not. The graphic is grabbed from artsymomma.com.

PART 2:
Just like the outer senses can be used with the sole purpose of entertaining yourself and impressing others with how much you appear to be and have, the inner ones can be used for the same purpose. In fact, that is the most common purpose for those who like to label themselves as spiritual. They believe that having visions of an inner world makes them more spiritual and therefore different from others.

But as long as the apparent differences in a world, where there seems to be more than one, is perceived to make a difference, you are part of the very same belief in separation as those whom you think you differ from. That is, however, quickly solved in the world of the outer senses, because as we all share the same belief system of separation, we all in are the same boat. In other words, the apparent difference between us makes no difference, and so there is no foundation for the belief in separation.

As you can see, you do not need to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one to practically see that to believe in separation makes no sense. But without having bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, it is may be difficult to take it to the next step, which is that without separation there is no foundation for the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

However, as such a world is a matter of belief – quantum physics states it only appears to be there when observed –you may as well believe someone, who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, telling you that it is a hallucination – especially as this includes your appearance as someone definitive, because that means all problems are solved, as all your problems arise from the belief that you are someone at all.

If you as someone definitive is an auditory minded person, the entrance to that which is you, namely the formlessness of oneness, is eternal harmonies. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you as someone definitive is an auditory minded person, ethereal harmonies could be the way to undo the belief in being someone. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

PART 3:
Let us imagine, that though you have never heard anything else than compressed music like for example MP3, you feel that something is missing. Yet you cannot know what it is, because you have never heard uncompressed music as it sounds on vinyl.

But also on vinyl, there seems to be something missing in comparison with live music – and that is nothing compared to the ethereal music you can hear in the world of the inner senses when the outer ones are partly turned off. The inner senses, however, you do not know, if you have always depended on the outer ones.

To depend only on the outer senses can be compared to playing a game like Monopoly but without the cards, so you do not know where to go. Neither do you know where to go in the world, when the inner senses are not used. Without them you cannot hear where you are – or rather, without them you cannot hear that which is you is not in a world where there seems to be more than one.


You can read about ethereal music in the below articles

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(+) A perfect moment takes you back to the first moment of duality

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 is fabricated at the edge of a black hole, from where you believed it was possible to escape that which is one. To make it appear as you are right in believing, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, you separate everything you imagine to see outside the black hole into degrees of good and bad so that it feels like you are in a world where there is more than one.

When feelings, that are judged to be bad, are excluded by projecting them onto others or obscure parts of your body, so that you appear to be a good person only, you have fabricated a world divided into opposites of good and bad, right and wrong and me and them. Consequently, there is always something, you need to fix in order not to feel bad, wrong or outside.

When everything is included there is no differences and consequently nothing to improve. Nothing is missing. 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, and so 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. This article, however, is mainly about hearing or feeling it, which is often symbolised by the words 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 outer senses are partially closed, the inner ones, that 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 outer senses are completely closed, there is no world to experience, and so there is nothing to prevent the flow of the inner senses from erasing all thoughts – or rather the belief that there is someone thinking them – so there is not something that appears to hide that which is one. This is, however, not the subject of this article, which 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 apparent different – have the same value. Every moment is the perfect moment. Nothing is wrong or missing.

Feeling or hearing the humming from the edge of the universe you do not perceive differences to make a difference. Every moment is the perfect moment when emptied for personal perception by the unpronounceable vibration picked up from the edge of the universe.

In the next article The unspeakable sound of Aum or Sohang is your ticket to Highway One you can read especially about the humming at the edge of the universe, and in the article Life has no secrets you can learn how to hear and/or feel it. 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 – that 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 the fragments 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 detailed 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 that a world where there seems to be more than one is not possible, because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as formlessness has no end. 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 above mentioned perfect moment an explanation of the beginning of the world.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The perfect moment is a fairytale pointing to that which is one
That which is you is no different from that which is one, so it is not possible to be someone definitive in a world, where there seems to be more than one. Yet it is possible to pretend to be there. Just like – in the context of such a world – it is possible to pretend to be someone in a virtual world of a game.

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 believe 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 hints to what hides that which is one, so you may be inspired to have the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one undone.

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 inner senses will fill you with glimpses of enlightenment – or if completely 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 things in your own pace.

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 in regards to 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 use them to prove that you are on the right way and others are on a wrong.

Most belief systems are just a 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. where 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 do not exist, because it takes more than one to believe something or to exist as someone – and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.


*) 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.


NOTES: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

You can read more about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation or in hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of lifeor in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The empty breath can be felt in many ways within its non-definable framework of a ball like thing, that passes through the head – or above it – and the stomach or below it. Yet it is not experienced in relation to the body, nor inside or outside. This is not because everything is perceived to at one when connected with the empty breath, but that the experience of something is perceived to be nothing (read more about that here).

Having an out-of-body experience is based on the belief that you are someone in a body, which is the opposite of the experience that comes from being connected with the empty breath, as it undoes the belief that you are someone in a body. Read more about that here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This could be like going in a circle going from the stomach around the back of the body to the top of the head when breathing in, and from there in a circular movement in front of the body and back to the stomach when breathing out. The direction, however, does not matter. As already said, it is all about going with the flow. So if that seems to go the opposite way, by all means, go that way.

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

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

Going with the flow of the circular movement in one of the above circles feels like you are surfing two yin-yang like waves inside the empty breath. But this is just one of the ways to experience the empty breath. Below is a short introduction to them and then a more detailed description to each of them.

Be aware though, feeling the empty breath, as described in this article, is only possible to the extent that you do not wish to be or have more spiritually, mentally, emotionally or materialistically because the empty breath has not anything to give but the sheer bliss of nothing.

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

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

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

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 moves in sync with the breath – or rather the breath moves in sync with them. It is therefore not so much about following the extraction and contraction of the physical breath but the flow of the empty breath, which may feel like you are surfing the outside of the two yin-yang like waves more or less in sync with the physical breath. The colours in this image only have an illustrative purpose.

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

When the body is expanded by the breath, you surf the outside of the yellow wave from the stomach and behind the body up in the head. From there, you surf the outside of the blue wave in front of the body down to the abdomen or below it, while the breath is contracting the body. That is if you are sensing the waves in a circle going from the back to the front of the body. See a more detailed explanation of the different possibilities for the placement of the circles containing the waves in the above intro to the empty breath.

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

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

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

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

You may also surf the empty breath in the opposite direction. Going counterclockwise tends to lessen physical awareness so you would become less interested in returning to a conscious experience of being someone substantial in a tangible world. The same applies, if the non-definable edges of the empty breath are not experienced to touch the body but pass it on top of the head and below the abdomen, as that means there is almost no relation to the body when surfing it.

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

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

Going with the flow without knowing where and why.

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

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

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

It is, however, possible to be more choosy than Alexius normally is. 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 side of you, or both of the bottom waves in these circles, or the bottom wave in any one or more circles in between the two others. No reason to memorise this. Just go with the flow.

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the case of Alexius, the state of his body is not that good, so he speaks from personal experience when he says, that due to the indifference of the empty breath IBS and COPD, for example, are not something he needs to get it over with to feel better, as the discomfort is not perceived to be something but nothing.

If you are not looking to get it right, nothing is wrong or missing. Hence every moment is the perfect moment (hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment). You have no need to get it right if you face your anger, because then it does not seem wrong and you do not have hide it by looking right.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Since this means there is nothing to define such a world, it becomes obvious that it is not real but a fantasy made from out of nothing. But just like the reality in the world of a game is the same whether you believe it is real or not, the reality of a world where there seems to be more than one remains the same, when you sense it is an illusion. Your relation with it, however, is forever changed. Being someone definitive, there is all pretence – just like it is, within that reality, when one pretends to be in the world of a game. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

The look of these sound waves reminds Alexius of how the connectedness with the empty breath often feels, and how feeling this makes him indifferent to the apparent differences of the world experienced to be outside of him.

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

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

NOTE ABOUT THIS ARTICLE
The above article that is part of hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing, is to be continued in the next one. What is ´the empty breath´ about?.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read more about the inner an outer senses in What and where are the inner and outer senses or hack #5-7.3 The inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Failure may be the greatest success

In a long forgotten land, there lived an old man in a house far away from everything.

In forgotten land a long time ago, an old man was living all by himself in a house far from everything. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In a land long time forgotten, there was a wise old man, who was said to know the way to the enlightenment of that which is one. A young man, who dreamed of this, travelled for months through the country until he finally succeeded in finding the old man in an obscure place far from everything. He asked, the old if he could show him the way to the enlightenment of that which is one, and the old man answered: »No problem if you are willing to work for it«.

»Of course«, said the young man, who was very eager to get started, but a little surprised when the old man asks him to dig a ditch around his house. He assumed the old man was poor so that if he would do it for free, all secrets would be revealed for him.

He, therefore, did his best to impress the old man, but it was not easy. The old man kept saying, the work was not good enough, it could be much better, the ditch should be much deeper and so on. When the old man at long last seemed to be satisfied, the young one thought, now he would be rewarded for all his hard work.

Expecting something for something
For about a week the young man patiently waited for the old man to show his appreciation. Though old man said nothing he treated the old man with much respect, thinking that the better he could make the old man feel, the more he would reveal. For weeks the old man did not approach the young man at all, until one day he quietly asked him to fill up the ditch again.

The young man freaked out and started to wonder, if the old man really was a wise man, but he decided to see what would happen, if he did what he was told – and so he filled up the ditch in such a way, that you could hardly see, there ever had been one.

The award appeared shitty
The young man was very proud of his work, and when the old man asked him to meet in his house exactly one hour later, he thought, now all secrets will be revealed to me. So he opened the door to the house with a big smile on his face. It did very last very long though because the old man threw a bucket of cow shit down on the young man from his hiding place above the door. The young man got angrier than ever before in his life – especially as he through the shit saw, how amazed the old man was.

Furiously he left the old man, thinking he had wasted months of his precious life with this sadistic man, who knew nothing about the enlightenment of that which is one. After some time, however, he felt like coming back, and so one more time he asked the old man to teach him the secret way to the enlightenment of that which is one.

Again the old man said yes and gave him one meaningless assignment after the other. A year or more went on like this, and when the old man one day again threw a bucket of cow shit on the young man, he quietly looked at the old man with a happy smile beneath the shit.

The young man did not feel young anymore, neither old. And he was no more looking for secrets to be revealed in the future. He was not looking for anything at all, neither did he assume, that he in any way had done or was anything special. All his ideas were gone. He was empty, and in the emptiness, he saw nothing, so there was not something to hide the enlightenment of that which is one.

Failure may be the greatest success
In the above, Alexius may have mixed two old Satsang* stories, that he heard as a young man. At that time he considered them to be typical guru stories out of touch with modern life because he was still into using life instead of being used by it.

In the eyes of the world, he has had a very successful life. In the past years, however, everything seems to fall apart. There is nothing inside of him, no ´I´ with a need to have or do anything that seems useful, neither no power to do something about it. In fact no power of his at all. This apparent failure though may be his biggest success.**

Alexius has no more to live up to. All expectations are gone. He is nothing and that is why the formlessness of oneness can use him as a medium for the which is one. This is, of course, just a metaphor because oneness is a power with no powers as that requires more than one, so it has no power to use anyone.


*) Satsang is a Hindi word that roughly translated means to be in the company of truth, which in the context of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is nonsense, as to be something requires more than one and truth is that which is one. In other words, it is just another fabricated state of mind in a world where there seems to be more than one, that is used to hide there is no more than one.

**) This reflects the personality of Alexius, but it does not necessarily apply to your personality. Having nothing inside is just as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, so if the illusion of having everything inside and lots of success in the world seems to your ´way´ by all means go for it.

What it boils down to is that all illusions are symbols of that which is real, since without reality there could be no illusion. Perceived in this way, it does not matter what illusion you indulge yourself in. They all symbolise that which makes it possible to experience something that is not real. Hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life are exploring this.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #5-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can.

Leave the body

Appearing to be in a body, Alexius follows the signals of it, which at the time of this photo shoot appeared to be that it needed something cold, so very light-footed he took it to the nearest ice cream shop. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you want to be free from worries and troubles, the belief that you are in the body must be undone. The obsession with it – the look and performance you expect from it – causes much trouble. And the few moments of pleasure is hard work.

To be free from worries is not the same as to be free, because freedom …

To leave your body is to not be involved in its survival and well-being. It has the capacity to do that itself. In fact, it is built to be self-sufficient, which it is very good at. That is, if you do your very small part and not interfere with the rest. If so, it will digest the food you put in the mouth and make sure its partnership with the gravity will keep you from falling off the planet – and produce new bodies.

In other words, leaving your body does not mean, that you stop putting food into the mouth or stop brushes its teeth and so on. You do what you can do to help it – for example taking it to the doctor. But you do not try to control it. Instead, you rely on the body to do its things at its own accord.

How to leave your body, so it can do its own thing without interference?
You cannot decide to leave the body, and you cannot know, what it is not to be in it when you believe you are a body. In other words, you cannot imagine, what it is to not be in a body as long as you are identified with it. But you can stop imagining that you are in a body, and so you are out of it.

´Out of the body´ may not be such a good way to put it, because it implies, that you are part of it. The body is not part of a coat it is wearing, and you are not part of the body you are using. It is outside of you – and even though it seems to be outside of you, you are not inside it. You are that which is one, and oneness has no sides.

To leave your body is to accept it as it is, and not use mind power to make it do things it is not geared to do. A body and a coat are not meant to be mixed but to remain separated – nor is the body and you. When separated they function well together.

Another way to leave the body is to care very much about someone or something else, for example, a pet or a video game.

Leaving your body will not make you happy, but it will make you very light-footed.


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In a world of linear time, this appears to takes time. In the process, however, the duality hacks will enable you to enjoy the illusion of that while having the belief that you are someone enjoying something undone. This does not apply to hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one, as there is nothing to enjoy in the fastest way possible to have the belief in being someone undone, namely the enlightenment of that which is one because it takes more than one to enjoy anything. Besides, the enlightenment of that which is one takes no time, as there is no time in that which is one. See hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

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

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

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

That is why you are bound to feel empty if believed to be someone specific. The solution to feeling empty is therefore not to fill up the emptiness but to undo 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. The enlightened does not believe but pretend to be someone.

NOTES:

The ins and outs of a black hole

The endings of an uncompleted black hole literally look like zen brush strokes.The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This zen drawing literally looks like an uncompleted portal into the enlightenment of that which is one, except that the hole is not white and in this illustration of the portal neither black, although it is often called a black hole. Instead, it is full of the same chaotically and rapidly moving strokes of changing colours, which also are outside the black strokes (not in this illustration though). That is until the black strokes meet and the bright white light that shoots out of the hole fills up everything by extracting all thoughts making up what you believe to be, so that there is nobody to experience being gracefully pulled through a hole that just like the bright white light is no more, as there is nothing but that which always was and is, since it is formless and therefore has no beginning and end, namely that which is one. For the same reason, there is nobody to know that the enlightenment of that which is one is not a process happening over time but one perpetual present, nor that what and where you believed to be has never existed. The graphic, which has been manipulated by Alexius, is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one is like a vacuum cleaner, that sucks out all the thoughts you have collected to experience yourself as someone definitive. Hence there is nobody left to detect, that nobody falls through a hole opening up from what at first may look like a Zen circle. Even though it is often called a black hole, it may not necessarily be black, neither white as in the image shown here, but probably full of the same rapid changing lucid colours surrounding the stroke, which by the way is more greyish than in this image.

The circle making up the so-called black hole is not made by one but two strokes that are drawn exceptionally quickly and smoothly without the use of any brush from what turns out to be the top of the circle. The two strokes are drawn at the same time and end up looking quite similar to the above image. That is if you like in this article compare it to a zen circle because by comparing it to a well-known image from the past, the enlightenment of that which is one is fenced off and you are back in a world of linear time.

In other words, the completion of the black hole is stopped by your definition of it as something recognisable, so you are not in free fall moving so fast that nothing seems to be moving through a hole that is no longer a hole but a light with no colour and substance and so bright that nothing is illuminated. Thus nothing seems to hide, there was and never will be more than the formlessness of that which is one.

So instead of being nobody on a timeless journey to the formlessness of oneness, you appear as if you still are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one because even though you were close to the enlightenment of that which is one, you did not bid it welcome.

Not a single thing of what you saw is the enlightenment of that which is one. As it takes more than one to see something, it cannot be seen, so the beginning of the black hole that you saw before returning to a world where there seems to be more than one is not the enlightenment of that which is one but a glimpse of it.

If you in anyway try to define anything in the enlightenment of that which is one, you fence it off, so it cannot extract your thoughts so you as nobody freely are falling through a black hole into that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you in any way try to see something definable in the enlightenment of that which is one – like colours for example – you are back in a world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

For the same reason, most of the above is not a description of the enlightenment of that which is one but glimpses of it*. The below, however, is a description of the enlightenment of that which is one, but as it cannot be experienced, the description is solely based on the vague memories that Alexius has of going where nobody can go.

These memories may seem to imply, that the enlightenment of that which is one is a sequence of events, but that is only because one perpetual present cannot be described in a world of linear time.

If you do not compare the strokes, that hastily draw up a black hole, with a zen circle or anything else, they are not defined, and so the ends of them meet without you noticing, there is nothing outside of them anymore, neither inside. No more colours or a black hole – just one bright light, that is neither opaque or transparent but so intense that it cannot be seen, nor can anything else, because there is not something to illuminate since that would require more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

In other words, there is no light and no you to imagine a substantial world that seems hide there never was or will be more than the that which is one since it is formless and thus without beginning and end.

In a black hole, just like in a dream, there is no sense of a physical world or ever having appeared to be someone in such a world. Nor is there a sense of any other world or being someone definitive. But there is a sense of weightless floating through an endless hole with no sides and light even though it is not dark.

There is not only a sense of being of something non-definable in an indefinable void but also that sensing this nothingness all of a sudden is going to end – presumably because it takes more than that to sense something.

This there is nobody to know. Probably because it also takes more than one to know something and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. No doubt that is why there is no more to tell.

To forget what and where you appear to be is to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Before the thoughts making up what you believe to be is absorbed by the extremely bright light that seems to explode in your face, you may sense that if you do not fight it by defining it, all thoughts collected to make you appear as if you are someone definitive will be extracted and left at the edge of a black hole, so there is nothing to be transported through this portal of antimatter into the formlessness of that which is one. If this is what you want, you better forget what you just read, so you do not use it to define the enlightenment of that which is one and thereby fences it off.

Even better, if you totally forget what and where you believe to be, there is no belief to hide that which is you is no different from that which is one, and that it has always been and always will be so.

The enlightenment of that which is one is not for those who believe to come from the heart or directly from the source, nor for those having direct experiences, compassion and whatnot, because states like that depend on the belief that you are someone definitive and there is no room for anyone in the enlightenment of that which is one, since that requires more than one.

Should you after having read this feel, that you have not really gotten the ins and out of a black hole, you are lucky because there are no ins and out of it.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The form of a sonogram looks like the waves joining to make a black hole, that sometimes for just a moment looks like an embryo. The graphic is grabbed from the web

As the portal to the enlightenment of that which is one – the so-called black hole – is not something definitive, it may start off in other ways than in the above description. One glimpse of it, that Alexius have had many times, looks a bit like a sonogram – or rather a wide range of the triangle like shape in this image spinning so fast, that they seem to join each other around an indefinable centre until the speed makes them disappear and only their borderline is sensed like a glittering round white stroke with nothing but blackness inside it just before one bright light, more powerful than thousands of atomic bombs, erupts out of the darkness and fills up everything.

That which is one cannot be understood, because it takes more than one to understand something. Yet there is much to be understood in a world where there seems to be more than one in order to learn how to appear as if you are someone definitive there. But it is not understandable, why you believe to be in such a world.**

This description is based on the glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one, that Alexius had last night, while the description of the zen circle is based on a glimpse from the night before. At other times ´the black hole´ may look like the head of a horse (see the image in The ins and outs of the inner senses) or an embryo more developed than in the sonogram image (see the image in A perfect moment takes you back to the first moment of duality). Hence there is no specific pattern to be deducted, so do yourself a favour and forget all about understanding it.**

Life has no secrets

There is nothing to search for. Searching comes from the desire of more, and there is no more than that which is one.

There is nothing to search for. Searching comes from the desire to be and have more than the oneness of life, but there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Life has no secrets. It is impossible because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to have a secret. So how come so many are wondering about what it is and where to find it. The answer lies in the previous sentence. Life is that which is one, so if you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are without life. In other words, even though the oneness of life is used to experience a world where it seems to be divided into more than one, it is not there – just like a physical body is not in a dream, regardless being the host of it.

Though some like to think, that the word of god is something written, but there is nothing in the New Testament that indicates that. In fact the word of god can neither be written or spoken.

Some like to think, that The Word of God is something written, though nothing in the New Testament indicates that. In fact The Word of God can neither be written or spoken. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»In the origin The Word had been existing and That Word had been existing with God and That Word was himself God.« John 1:1, Aramaic Bible in Plain English.

Unfortunately most of those reading the New Testament think, that what is written there is ´The Word of God´. But as god is that which is one and it takes more than one to write or read, the New Testament has nothing to do with ´The Word of God´.

An echo of that which is one, however, can be heard and felt in a world where there seems to be more than one. Christianity calls it for The Word of God, and in Eastern religions, it is often symbolised by the words Aum and Sohang. You could say that the oneness of life sends out an echo of itself to call you home. This echo though does not reveal what oneness is, but what it is not, namely the nothingness in which you believe to be someone definitive in a tangible world. But as you have never left the oneness of life, since it is formless and therefore endless, it is, of course, a metaphor that it is calling you home.

Yet it seems possible to believe that you are someone definitive separated from the formlessness of oneness. This article is written within the context of this belief. In other words, it is within this context, hearing or feeling the echo of oneness is a call for going home.

This echo is not a sound with a beginning and end, so it is not a word that can be written or spoken. But it can be heard and felt, and that is very easy. Hardly anybody wants to hear or feel it though because to appear as someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one you must always be right since being wrong makes you appear to not be special. Not believing to be special is, however, the prerequisite for hearing and/or feeling the echo of oneness

Approaching the echo of oneness through ´The Word of God´ may be even more confusing than the endless chanting of ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´, as it is not a word that means anything.

No chanting or any other action like that is necessary to hear/feel the vibration, that is symbolized by the word Aum. It comes to you automatically, when you do not differentiate the sounds of the world but include them all. In other words, when you do not focus or concentrate.

No chanting or reading in scriptures is necessary to hear or feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises. It comes to you automatically, when the apparent difference of the vibes in the world does not make a difference, which they do not do if you do not try to exclude any of them, as if there are more than one. In other words, when you do not focus or concentrate on something specific you are not someone specific but the unpronounceable vibration Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises is …
… not a secret though it appears to be so if you are searching for an elitist understanding of it rather than actually hearing or feeling the vibration, which can be heard or felt whenever you do not focus on hearing or feeling something specific.

When you hear or feel the unpronounceable echo of oneness, the sense of being someone definitive disappears. Thus there is nothing to transform.

For ages people have been chanted Aum and Sohang or speculated about the meaning of The Word of God, assuming that if they just kept going on, the secret behind them would miraculous be revealed. But only the special self (read more about that here) looks for miracles because it thinks it is in charge of itself and it cannot make it. That which is one has no miracles to reveal because it takes more than one to reveal anything, and there is no more than that which is one.

Many may already have heard or felt the echo of oneness coming from the edge of the universe, but as they are biassed towards something mysterious and sensational, they do not pay attention to the quiet humming, that constantly is there, as it is the basis for the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

It only takes one ´chant´ of Aum or Sohang to hear of feel the echo of oneness. That is if you are not looking for peak experiences of an almighty god, love or something mysterious and sensational that can be mentally explained.

To tune into hearing the echo of oneness …
… first say the two letters of AUM very slowly and when you come to M, do not really say but whisper it until you say nothing and there is a gentle humming coming from somewhere in the distance. This is the echo of oneness.

This is the Hindi symbol of ´sohang´– grabbed on the web. <i>The graphic is grabbed from the web</i>.

The Hindi symbol of Sohang is grabbed from the web.

You can also get in touch with this distant humming by saying sohang – eventually combined with listening to the sound coming from the breath. Say so when breathing in, and after a tiny break say hang when breathing out. The so is not really important, except for tuning in. The same applies to the first part of hang. After having said so-ha(n) you remain on (a)ng at the end of breathing out, and then let the sound continue by itself – what remains without you saying anything is the humming, that is the echo of oneness.

Another way to hear the echo of life is to stop focusing on any sound in particular until you cannot distinguishing the sounds that you are hearing from each other. Hence they turn into one sound, namely the echo of oneness.

You do not have to sit in a certain posture to meditate, repeat a mantrachantpraywearing special clothes or be in a special place with special people where the air is polluted with incense to hear the echo of oneness, neither does there have to be stillness inside or outside of you. All you have to do is to be devoted to whatever you are appear to do.

One of the first times Alexius heard this humming from the edge of the universe, he was busy handing out flyers on a pedestrian street, and just like that the sum of all sounds turned into a distant humming that cancelled out the noise of the street – also the feeling of being there, as the sum of all feelings turned everything into a transparent one.

Knowing it is there, it is easier to connect with it
When Alexius was a child, he preferred the music from a radio station called Radio Luxembourg. It was very hard to tune into it in his native country Denmark because it was on a frequency located between two very noisy stations. But as he knew of its existence and also where to look, with much determination and the finest subtlety he succeeded in tuning into Radio Luxembourg.

If you wonder how it is possible to hear or feel a vibration coming from the edge of the universe, check out the article A perfect moment takes you back to the first moment of duality.

Likewise, you, in the same manner, should be able to tune into the echo of oneness, now that know about the humming of oneness from the edge of the universe. If there appear to be too much noise in the head – especially the left side can be full of noise from the working of the brain – listen to your right side without focusing on anything in specific.

To feel the echo of oneness
Apart from hearing the vibration, that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises, you can also feel it – especially if you are more emotional than audio minded. Just do the same steps as above but put more weight into feeling it. Feeling it can be compared to sensing your body purring like a cat, or like it trembles of fear but without fearing of anything, or shaking of coldness but more lightly and not feeling cold or anything else specifically, or feeling the effect of quickly drinking the foam of Coca-Cola which in this case is not limited to bubble or tingle in a specific part of the body or in that alone but all over.

In more intense moments it may feel like you are nothing but the vibration from an earthquake or from a big laundry machine on the spin cycle. It is not just in the body but also outside of it, as if there is no transition between it and the appearances that seem to be outside of it. If you do not panic but go with the flow of it, you forget about the body and anything outside of it, so there is no memory to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

And as it takes more than one to be something, what you believe to be is no more. In other words, contrary to the experience of a mild tingling in the body, the intense version of it ends up in having no experience at all, since there is nobody to experience it. Normally the reflexes of fear for not being someone definitive quickly produce experiences of more than one, so you again appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. 

In the article Nothing can stop you on Highway One except your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one you can read more about how the enlightenment of that which is one terminates what you believe to be and how the fear of that makes you leave enlightenment and return to that belief.

That is what in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is called the enlightenment of that which is one, but that is a story for another article, as this one is devoted to the experiences of it in the form of hearing or feeling the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise. These experiences are not the enlightenment of that which is one but glimpses of it. See the appendix regarding the enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it.

Feeling or hearing the echo of the primordial vibration is basically the same – like two sides of the same coin. It is not advisable though to encompass both at the same time. Well, it is possible to encompass any of them but to be encompassed by them one by one.

In the case of Alexius he is more into hearing than feeling, so it took him a long time to feel the echo of oneness, and when he finally did – after several years – the belief in being someone specific was momentarily undone, so there was nothing definable fencing off the aspect of feeling the enlightenment of that which is one, which you do not feel as there are no conscious of you being someone definitive.

See Last night I died again from the world, if you want to read about when Alexius finally died from the outer senses of feeling a world where there seems to be more than one.

nov-21-davidopeWhat does it sound like?
Some people complain that their neighbour is vacuuming while they are meditating, but most likely the neighbour is at sleep and it is not the sound of a vacuum cleaner you hear but the distant vibration from the edge of the universe that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises.

If you look for a big and special experience, you may brush off something so simple as the gentle humming coming from the edge of the universe and yet from nowhere. The humming can also be compared to the distant sound of the air conditioning in a big place like a supermarket or an airport. It can also be compared to the sound of a wave at the shore, that never stops going up.

Already familiar with the humming that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises, you do not tune into it all the time, if you still want to appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. But you may tune into it every now and then just to make sure you have not forgotten the key to the formlessness of oneness – just like you sometimes may check your pocket to hear or feel, that you have not forgotten the key to your physical home.

Life has nothing to give because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to give something
Let us return to the idea of the so-called secrets of life. What secrets does life hide? None. Were you asked to buy a book or take a special course to know what Aum, Sohang and The Word of God is a symbol of? No, and you did not have to wait until the end of the article to read about how to hear or feel the echo of life. You got it right away without beating about the bush.

If you have peculiar questions like: What is life and what is the meaning of it, you have separated yourself from it – or rather imagined that it is possible to do so, because separation from that which is one is not possible, as there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

So whatever you imagine to be and have in a world where there seems to be more than one is not real. Yet you like to believe, that if you try hard enough, life will reveal its secret reality to you. But life has nothing to reveal because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to reveal anything.

The above article is Alexius´ way of communicating, how you actually can hear and feel an echo of oneness. To use ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´ as a stepping stone for that is not a new idea, but so far it has mostly been promoted in mysterious ways by people, who do not hear or feel it themselves, but hope that if they repeat those words again and again a miracle will happen. Looking for that, however, they will miss the gentle humming coming from the edge of the universe.

It was not through the words ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´ that Alexius started to hear or feel the humming, that they symbolise. Since his teenage years he has been used to being ´lifted´ by this humming – for example while watching a movie, having a walk with his parents or sitting all by himself in a park. And so when he was about 40 years old it suddenly dawned on him, that this is what people are trying to reach, when chanting ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´.

It is not about reaching it though, but to tune into it so that it reaches you. When Alexius can do this so can you, because even though you may appear to be different from him, what makes it possible for the two of you to experience you are different is the same, namely the formlessness of oneness from where this humming comes.


APPENDIX:
As it takes more than one to experience something, the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be experienced. Yet glimpses of it can be experienced in the form of seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting it. In other words, to hear or feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises is to have a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one.

The article Beyond the senses – or the outer senses versus the inner ones elaborates on the enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it. Below are links to articles that go more in-depth with this, and also the other aspects of having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one:

I am the Destroyer of Worlds!

Painting with reflections of light on my iPhone

After a long intense night of driving taxi many years ago, I forgot what and where I was, and so there was nothing to hide the enlightenment of that which is one.

In the enlightenment of that which is one there is nothing but bright white light, and everything ´happens´ so fast, that there is no time to think and hold onto concepts of eternity, love, stillness and whatnot.

When I later read The New Testament and Bhagavad Gita there were passages, that triggered memories of the enlightenment of that which is one. The memories are vague though because Alexius did not experience it. The enlightenment of that which is one is formless so nothing definable can enter it. Yet there are vague memories of something indefinable, and so Alexius is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

»I have become the destroyer of worlds«
The enlightenment of
that which is one is enlightenment in a very literal sense, like when Jesus said: When your eyes become single your whole body will be full of light – or like St. Paul, when he was blinded by light – or like Arjuna according to Bhagavad Gita said after having been initiated by Krishna: »It is brighter than thousands of suns. I have become the destroyer of worlds …«

A dream can be compared to a simulated world meanwhile layered on top that which is real. As long as you believe the simulated world to be real, it will seem to cover that which is real, as if it does not exist.

The world is not there anymore. Not because it has been destroyed, but just because it was never there – except as an imagination, which is not possible to have in that which is one, as that requires more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In the enlightenment of that which is one, the world is not there anymore. Not because it has been destroyed, but just because it was never there – except as an imagination, which is not possible to have in that which is one, as that requires more than one to imagine something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

I would not put it like that myself, because there is nobody in the enlightenment of that which is one, so there is not a body to be full of light, neither a world to destroy. The world is just not there, and there is no memory of it ever having been there. It is like a dream that is no more when you wake up in the morning.

The translations of both The New Testament and Bhagavad Gita differs from translator to translator, and as the above quotes are from memory, they may not be the exact words in your addition. But it does not really matter, because regardless of how you speak about it, the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be described. In other words, what is said about it in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings should not be taken as the real thing, but pointers towards it.

Imagine you want to describe an orange to somebody, who has never seen or tasted an orange. Maybe you say it has the colour of an orange sunset, is round like a ball and taste as sweetened water. Yet the person, that you have given this description, will never find out what an orange is by drinking sweet water from a rounded cup at sunset.

You have to see and taste it yourself to know what it is – and in terms of the enlightenment of that which is one, you will never know, because a person cannot be enlightened. You as a person is gone in the enlightenment of that which is one. There is nobody there to experience it – that is why it cannot be known.

No god to see in the world and nothing to find
Some think the enlightenment of that which is one is to see god in everyone. This is delusional, there is no god in the world. In the context of god and the world, just think of electricity lightening up a room via a bulb. You see the room due to the power of electricity. Yet you cannot see electricity itself, because it is not in the room illuminated by the bulb. But there is no god either in the enlightenment of that which is one, except if you use the word in its original meaning, namely one perpetual present.

If you return to the world after the enlightenment of that which is one, there is no more need to search for the meaning of life, because you know there is no more than that which is one and so there is no life a world, where it seems to be more than one. Besides to search for something requires more than one, so whatever you think you find is not real.

473ab673-5995-4175-96a8-ef93e44afbe8The freedom to be a person
One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has no need to be forgiven or loved, because there is no ´I´ deciding what to do and therefore nobody to forgive or love. But when there is no ´I´ to protect and preserve, there is freedom to pretend being any kind of personality with all the ups and downs a specific personality seems to have.

To make long short: There is no need to keep together an appearance of someone with coherent opinions and behaviour. You are free to use the ´I´ as the personality, you fancy. It is simply a tool you use like your leg, hand eyes and so on.

Some personalities I have pretended to be for a while: Child, Teenager, Taxi driver, Monk, Husband, Daddy, Adult, Business Man, Millionaire, DJ, Designer, Teacher, Photographer and recently: Non-teacher.

Enlightenment is not of a world where there seems to be more than one
Regarding the enlightenment of that which is one, it is best to forget everything you have ever heard or read about it – including what is said in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Any idea of any form, that you might think it has, is wrong. It has no form, it is formless. Yet, if you look for something formless, you still look for something. But if you do not believe to be someone definitive – or do not care about it – there is not something definable to hide it.

Please note that I am in no way postulating the above statements are the perfect way to put it – there is no such thing as perfection in a world where there seems to be more than one – so if you look for inconsistencies, misspelling or whatever, you may find it, but if you look for pointers to the enlightenment of that which is one, you may also find that.

Kind regards
Alexius


NOTE: Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings talks about two kinds of enlightenment, namely the enlightenment of that which is one, which cannot be experienced, as that requires more than one, and glimpses of it, which is experienced through the inner senses when the outer ones are partly closed.

How come I  write Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings? Dunno. Maybe it is like nature, that keeps on spreading its seeds, whether they sprout or not, because the purpose is to freely give away everything received, as in doing so everything is received. What more can I ask!

This article is part of hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

[√] Eyes do not see, they translate

Ellorem hariatenihil inversp ienimin velibus, to ipsae volorum aboris qui anit maximet, te de et vitate nemqui blaut lam et magnatisciis sundeli aspicip sandesciis. Voloqir © Alexius Jorgensen.

Our eyes cannot see anything at all. The tangible world we believe in looking at is a construction of thoughts compound by the brain based on the reflections of light that it claims passes through our eyes. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Even though the digital photos in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings seem to differ from each other and each has their own story, they are the same in the sense that they all consist of nothing but the same zeros and ones. And the images do not seem to be different from each other before an app translates specific mixes of zeros and ones into different images reminiscent of the world where we experience to be as separated beings.

This translation of zeros and ones into images that we seem to recognise as something from the world where we believe to makes us forget, that the raw data of each image consist of the exact same zeros and ones and that there would be absolutely nothing to see if they had not been rendered by an app.

This does not only apply to digital images but anything that appears to be different from something else, regardless it seems to be inanimate or animate, spiritual or physical and whatnot. In the world where we believe to be, the app doing this is the brain. It translates nothing into something that seems tangible.

»Your eye is like a camera … Photons pass through your lens, which focuses them onto a spot at the back of your retina. There, specialised photoreceptive structures called rods and cones convert these photons into electromagnetic impulses that your brain interprets as shapes, colours, and textures.« From an article in Wired.

First, an app translates zeros and ones into frequencies, that seem to reach your eyes from your screen. Then those frequencies are converted by the brain into something that looks like you expect the world to be. Lastly, you perceive that as it is made by the brain or try to make a better version of it. See hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special onePhoto © Alexius Jorgensen.

The human eyes can be compared to a digital camera, that contrary to an analogue camera does not make images on a film inside of it. Instead, it records the data – called RAW – of light coming through the lens when the shutter button is pressed.

This data, however, cannot be seen as an image on the screen of the camera before it is converted by a built-in app into the contrasts that define a world where there seems to be more than one. Technically speaking this is most often done by rendering RAW into a JPEG file.

If the raw data received by the eyes or any other sense is not translated by the brain into something perceivable, there does not appear to be someone experiencing anything.

Likewise, there is nowhere inside the head of us, where the light recorded by the eyes is processed into an image like in an analogue camera. The data or frequencies of light captured by the eyes can only be seen as an image reminiscent of the world where we believe to be when the brain has fabricated such an image by translating the data it collects from the three taps in the eyes, that respectively record red, green and blue frequencies.

Since it takes time for the brain to process the information it gets from the eyes in a specific moment, it sorts the received information into categories and only use those needed to make up the image it wants you to see. The time delay in processing, it extrapolates so it does not seem to interfere with what you perceive to be happening now.

You can read more about that in the articles You want to be deceived, and so you are and Duality is a simulated reality on top of non-duality.

Facebook can now automatically write captions on images, that can be read by blind people, so their brain can use this info to construct an image inside of them as if they actually see the image on Facebook. The graphic is grabbed from an article in Wired.

As it always takes the brain about one second to accomplish this, our conscious experience of now is a construction of thoughts about what happened one second ago – also if we believe in coming from the heart and whatnot. Thus we do not see but think that we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one. Read more about that here.

It is quite similar to how artificial intelligence automatically generates an audio caption on a photo in the News Feed for blind people on Facebook so they can fabricate an image of a pizza, for example, themselves. The image is, by the way, grabbed from an article in Wired about this.

The blind ones, however, will not know if artificial intelligence always gets it right. Neither will they or the ´seeing´ ones know that the brain never gets it right when it produces experiences of a world where there seems to be more than one because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

So in the context of that which is one you do not see this article since it takes more than one to see something. But nor do you in the context of a world where there seems to be more than one. Everything on the screen, where you believe to see this article, consists of zeros and ones added together in entirely meaningless ways.

You only seem to see this nothingness as something, because your electronic device has a system, that translates it into wavelengths of light which reach your eyes in ways that the brain, in this case, turns into letters forming English words.

The brain is translating the raw data coming through the eyes into experiences that seem to be tangible. But it is all make-believe.

Reading these words in a country where the internet is censored, some of them may have been changed or left out. And if not, you have most definitely left out some yourself, so you can twist Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings into something that fits your perception of the world. See also The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real.

In other words, the article, that you think you are reading, is not the article that Alexius wrote. What you believe to be reading is based on how you perceive the brains translation of the article that your browser has rendered from HTML, which is one of the languages an electronic media uses to convert its mess of zeros and ones into something that appears to make sense. Read more about that here.

If you experience to be run in a dream, you are mistaken. You are not in the dream but in your bed adding thoughts together in such a way that you perceive yourself to be running in a non-existing world. The same applies to everything you believe to experience in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are not there because there is no more that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

In other words, what you believe to read is made up in your brain. Just like when you believe you have vertigo. Nor yours or somebody else´s eyes see the world spin, the way you experience it to do. It is something the brain makes up. And so is, for example, feeling loved or rejected. Those feelings are the same in the sense that they are not caused by anything else than electrical impulses in your head. This applies to all experiences, including those perceived to be divine or spiritual. See All experiences are equally unreal.

You can compare the experience of living in a world where there seems to be more than one to using a flight simulator. You are not flying at all. It is an illusion.

Neither humans or self-driving cars actually see the world where they appear to be but what their master, respectively the brain and The Cloud, based on the info coming from their senses, decides for them to see. And as you can ´see´ in this image of how a self-driving car perceives the world, it is entirely different from how you believe to see it. The graphic is grabbed from Wired.

What you ´see´ can be compared to what a self-driving car sees, namely nothing manipulated into something. The info received from the sensors of the self-driving car is shaped by The Cloud into what it wants the car to ´see´ and respond to as it is real. Read more about that here.

Whether you seem to see something in a movie or what appears to be a world outside of you, it is an experience fabricated by the brain. So if someone is seen as sad, it does not mean that this is so but that this is how a certain wavelength is interpreted by the brain.

Believing to see something can also be compared to how the artificial intelligence (AI) that Facebook and Google use to sort your photos is programmed to recognise your pictures. Even though all data in an electronic media consists of nothing but zeros and ones, artificial intelligence is programmed to experience special combinations of them as if they are substantial entities. The more it ´sees´ those entities, that it defines as human beings, the more it learns to interpret a particular facial expression as a special emotion. Thus it experiences to ´feel´ what it ´sees´ and, therefore, that it can relate to the persons in the photos as if it is one of them.

But since an artificial intelligence does not exist as somebody, nobody is relating to anybody. It is just layer upon layer of algorithms, that collects data and put them together in the same way like the human brain compiles thoughts to make it appear as if there is a tangible world where there is nothing but empty space.

When a smartphone recognises your face it does not mean that it sees you. In the case of Apple, for example, it registers the electrical impulses from a grid of 30,000 invisible dots which has been projected onto your face to create a 3-D map of your facial topography. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The brain uses the very same organ to fabricate all the apparently different experiences that it makes you conscious of. So if you split them into imaginative or real, for example, you are mistaken. All experiences are all make-believe.

In other words, the experience of a world defined by time and space is a construction of thoughts made by nobody from out of nothing – or as science states, the world consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space and the rest, that we perceive as elements of matter making up a tangible world, is also blank.


»The app helps people who are blind or losing their sight ´feel´ smiles. The app uses facial recognition to find a face and then vibrates in the user’s hand to let them know that the person they’re talking with is smiling.« From an article in Wired.

The person you believe to be is blind, deaf and numb. What you experience to see, hear feel and taste, regardless it appears to be spiritual or mundane, is nothing but electrical impulses. They do not mean anything at all unless the brain manipulates them into something that appears to be a smile, for example.

The brain is like an app in a wearable device for blind people. It uses facial recognition to find a face and tells you when the algorithm suggest that it smiles, so the blind can have an experience of ´seeing´ and/or ´feeling´a smiling face.

Most insist that this construction of thoughts is set in motion by something. Religions claim it is done by god and many gurus stand firm on the belief that a higher consciousness is behind it and if you meditate, chant and whatnot you will find it. But they are wrong. Reality is that which is one, and as it takes more than one to find something, only that which is not real can be found.

Ultimately speaking, the above is just another construction of thoughts, that is as illusionary as anyone else. Yet this illusion accepts, that it is not real, as it requires more than one to write, read, realise or understand it, and reality is that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

Thus it does not claim to expose what is real, but what is not real, so you stop to believe that there is something to see where there is nothing, and this belief, therefore, does not appear to hide there is no more than that which is one.


NOTE: The above about eyes applies to all the senses. If you are tone-deaf, for example, it is not due to a problem in the ear but the brain, which is unable to find the right equation in the music.

Inclusiveness turns death into a portal to that which is one

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This graphical illustration of a so-called out-of-body-experience is not entirely correct, because you as the observer of it do not see yourself out-of-body. You seem to experience the event from another angle than usual, and so you conclude you are outside of the body. Yet you have never been in the body, neither outside of it. It is nothing but make-believe. In the moment of death*, however, the brain does not have enough oxygen to uphold the images sustaining this belief. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
In the moments of death, the brain does not have enough oxygen to fabricate an image of a tangible world appearing to be outside of you, neither inside.

When you experience a world, where there seems to be more than one, thoughts and feelings are judged as caused by it, but at the moment of death* the brain is not able to fabricate an image of a world outside of you, and so thoughts and feelings are just there without any cause and effect.

Instead first all your excluded thoughts and then feelings, that you no longer can connect to a tangible world outside of you, chaotically are rushing by, until there is no more. Hence there is not something to hide, there is nothing but that which is one.

That is, if you did not stop in the tracks of thoughts or feelings rushing by in an attempt to place them outside of you or into something better, because if you do, you are stuck in the thoughts and feelings, since there is nothing outside of you, because there is no more than that which is one, and it takes more than one to have an outside.

For the same reason, this cannot be escaped by arranging for something better to be achieved in the future, because there is nothing but one perpetual present. And there is not a body where you can hide what you do not like.** Neither can you exclude thoughts and feelings by projecting them onto a tangible world, as there are no memories of anything tangible since it was an illusion fabricated by the brain, and it is not working.

Out-of-body is just as hallucinatory as in the body. That which is you is neither in or outside of anything. It is the formlessness of everything.

To make long short, by not being exclusive but inclusive your appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one is a simple ride, and the moment of death* is a portal to that which is one. No fear is holding you back when everything is included, and so there is nothing to hide that which is you is no different from that which is one.

When the TV screen is blank, there is no world to see there. What you see is what you believe to be, which is also what you see, when there appears to be a world on the TV screen, as the world is in the eye of the beholder. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
A near-death experience can be compared to watching a movie on the TV screen. Suddenly it turns blank, and only the sound is left. The world that the TV broadcast is gone and there is nothing but the sound of your thoughts.

When death is about to set in, the brain starts running out of oxygen, so it does have not enough to fabricate the usual images of a world defined by time and space. Instead, it fabricates tunnels of light or other images, that it is conditioned to broadcast as a near-death experience in order to calm you down, so you do not panic when you are unable to experience a world defined by time and space, and start to sense that what you believe to be there is dying.

But if you do not believe to be someone at all, there is nobody experiencing tunnels of light or whatnot. Neither is there anybody who needs to see calming images, as there is nobody in a panic because nobody is dying.

At the moment of death, you are sucked into a black hole. That is if you do not try to define it because then you uphold the belief in being someone definitive. When the light at the edges of the black hole explodes into a light so bright that there is not something specific to experience, you feel like exploding too, and if not avoiding it the nothingness of you gently falls into the formlessness of that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
When the body is dying, the brain cannot produce a world that confirms the belief that there is more than that which is one. Hence there is nothing to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. That is if you do not hang onto fragments of thoughts about such a world. If so it feels very claustrophobic that it cannot be shared with somebody else, as the formlessness of oneness has no room for more than one.

If you believe, that you can be at one a soulmate, the universe, god and whatnot, the formlessness of oneness will seem claustrophobic to you, as it takes more than one to be at one with anything, and it has no room for no more than one.

So to the degree that you believe there is more than that which is one, it will seem very scary and claustrophobic, when the tangibility of a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be felt.

Yet there is no such need if the belief that there is more than that which is one is undone, which it is when everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is included, as that cancels out the apparent difference between all your experience, so that there is no experience, and therefore nothing to hide that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

As it takes more than one to have a problem there is not a single one in that which is one – neither anything to fear.

In other words, the inclusion of everything experienced does not result in you embodying everything and therefore being at one with the universe. On the contrary, your apparent existence as someone definitive is over, because when nothing is excluded, there is not something to define you.

For the same reason, there are no memories left of a world where there seems to be more than one, nor a sigh of relief from having escaped it. In other words, there is no more than that which always was and will be, namely the formlessness of oneness.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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