Somebody cannot bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, but nobody can

When every experience is perceived as a symbol of that which is one, none of them has the power to fend off the enlightenment of that which is one, because symbols are powerless. See hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Fear and other emotions may seem to be a hindrance for the enlightenment of that which is one. It is not the emotions, though, that fend it off but that you believe they are yours. That which is you does not feel anything because it takes more than one to do so, and it is no different from that which is one. For the same reason, that which is you does not think, nor is it conscious of anything.

This does not mean, you should try to stop this. First of all, that which is you cannot stop anything as that calls for more than one. Secondly, while you appear to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is not possible to stop being aware of feelings and thoughts since that is what makes you appear to be there.

It is, of course, possible to deny the awareness of thoughts and feelings by meditating, for example. But whether you establish yourself to be someone who has something or nothing, you are definable and thus in denial of that which is you, as oneness is formless.

Pretending to be someone, on the other hand, what you have is not yours because what you pretend to be you are not. Thus nobody is having thoughts and feelings or being conscious of anything. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation. Consequently, nobody bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

This is not the only way to become nobody. As everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, there is no fear without trust, so if you are so full of fear that there is nothing else, it cannot be defined by trust. Hence you are full of nothing and, therefore, not somebody but nobody. See hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

You could also stick to being the basic self by perceiving any kind of experience, whether it appears to mundane or spiritual, as it is what it is. See hack #4.3 Being a self or no-self. Since that means emotions do not stick to you, they do not fend off the enlightenment of that which is one. Nor will they prevent you from having a marvellous time in a world where there seems to be more than one until the enlightenment of that which is one erases everything that requires more than one.

You do not need to refrain from sex or anything to else to make these or any other duality hack work. If you are willing to have the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, the duality hacks apply themselves, the more you read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

The willingness comes by itself when you admit, you are not willing to have this belief undone, as by acknowledging that you confirm what and where you appear to be is make-believe.

APPENDIX:
Since the application of the above duality hacks requires more than one, they are as illusionary as anything else in a world in a world of duality, including the writer and reader of this. The purpose of them, however, is not to make us seem like we are somebody but that we, just like anything else that calls for more than one, are nothing because non-duality is formless and therefore endless so there is no more than that which is one.

Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ (in the process of being updated)

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

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

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

Science states, the world we seem to feel and see consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and as immaterial as a dream, is what we perceive to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space.

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

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

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

How to connect with the bliss of the empty breath

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is it the bliss of the empty breath that undoes the belief in being someone definitive, or is it the undoing of this belief that connects you with the bliss of the empty breath? Since this question arises from the belief in being someone definitive, which is an illusion fabricated by the brain, there is no answer to it, neither to who has invented this illusion or who choose to have the belief in it undone. Actually, there is no answer to anything. All questions are constructed from out of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

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

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

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

now is an illusion fabricated by the brain

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

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

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

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

now is a delayed interpretation of the past

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

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

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

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

what you believe to be is the brain

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

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

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

It seems, that when the brain is not kept busy with thoughts, that we believe in making ourselves about our relationship with the world (see No talking is needed to come back to that which is one and The ins and outs of the inner senses) for 20 minutes, 45 at the most, it falls apart. And since all the memories we have selected to back up what we believe to be are stored in the brain, this belief falls apart.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The bliss of the empty breath is a state of not-knowing, that is all-inclusive


A state of not-knowing is all-inclusive. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you try to exclude the desire for something special in order to remain in a state of not-knowing, you are already out of it, because a state of not-knowing is all-inclusive, contrary to the consciosness of being special, as that is based on excluding that is judged to be ordinary. So if not excluding but including your desire, you are still in the bliss of nothing.

In this case you applied hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss. But, as all the duality hacks are interchangeable, you could have applied a hack to connect with the empty breath by using the restless energy of your desire to ignite a take-off to it (see How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´).

The bliss of the empty breath has no centre

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

So when not insisting that your spouse, for example, has to recognise you as special, which is done by not excluding but including your desire to be and have something special (see hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss), the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one do not appear to make difference, wherefore you continue in the flow of the empty breath, that helps you to deal with everything included.

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

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

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

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

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

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

As described above, inclusiveness results in a state of not-knowing (see hack #3.3 Inclusiveness is pure bliss). But pretending to be someone instead of believing to be that (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive) also does that. And so does having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #6-7.2 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), or perceiving everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one (see hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life), or acknowledging that the experience of such a world is something you have alone together (see hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one).

All the duality hacks (inclusive More Duality Hacks and Extra Duality Hacks) except the enlightenment of that which is one result in a state of not-knowing. If they differ from each other is not to say, as there are only vague memories of not believing to be someone.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There is nobody in the bliss of the empty breath

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The bliss of the empty breath is the bliss of nothing


The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

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

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

The bliss of the empty breath is not the end station

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOTES: 

PMT Every moment is the perfect moment

If you experience a flow of beauty, love, sex or colors in this pic totally depends on the perception you have fabricated of yourself as a person. But no matter what you perceive, if you include it all, the moment of watching this pic is perfect – nothing is wrong or missing. Consequently you need no more and therefore are ready for that which is one.

Whether you experience love, sex or the beauty of a sunset in this image totally depends on how you have conditioned yourself as a person. But no matter what you experience, if it is included as it is, the moment of experiencing this image is perfect – nothing is wrong or missing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Exclusiveness is imperfection and inclusiveness is perfection. This does not mean that everything included is perfect. None of the parts is perfect – nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one is, but when all parts are included, it is a perfect moment.

This is not to say, you must include every small detail of a world where there seems to be more than one, but that you include everything as you perceive it. So-called negative thoughts are included as well as the so-called positive ones. Both past and future are included*. But if you out of habit exclude something, you do not have to correct that habit. You just included your habit of excluding.

To make long short: If you do not try to control and escape the moment as it is by excluding what you judge to be wrong, you have no needs, and so your life is effortless.

That you have no needs does not mean, that you may not want something, but that you are not attached to getting it but the flow of the moment, as it is without any correction.

That being said, there is no flow because there is no world. It only appears so, because you have chosen to perceive it like that. Consequently, the flow is in your perception.

That is why your perception is the moment. In other words, you are the master. It is you who decide every moment is the perfect moment.

In your dream, you may seem to climb around naked in the woods, but you are not climbing anywhere. You are doing nothing. You are asleep your bed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
Ultimately it really does not matter, if you experience to live in the now, a perfect moment, the past or whatever. You are not someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. There is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as formlessness is endless, so a world where there seems to be more than one is not real. So what you think you do ´there´ is of no importance.

While you appear to be ´there´, however, it may matter in regards to what kind of person, you pretend to be. A charming personality makes it more tolerable to pretend to be a person ´there´, but that is all there is to it. But ultimately nothing will help you return to the formlessness of that which is you.

You have not left the formlessness of that which is you. It is not possible – but it seems possible to imagine it and pretend to be a person in a world where there are more than one. Imagining this, nobody in that world can help you return to that which is you they are only in your imagination and so are you as someone definitive ´there´. Just like within the context of such a world, the person you appear to be ´there´ is not its dreams.

Even though the person you believe to be in a dream is experienced to travel around the world, you are not going anywhere because you are in your bed. Thus no matter what you seem to be going through in the dream, it is not happening. You remain the same in your bed.

To make long short, enjoy pretending to be someone definitive in the world in the way you see fit, but do not take it seriously, and do not think there is a way out. There is no way at all because you are not ´there´.

If you include all the different elements in whatever you see, you see nothing disturbing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
It is not (good) enough,
or there must be more are the two common mantras of the seeker – and it is also the foundation the world is built on. No moment is not good enough as it is. Something has to be done about it to make it better. Love, for example, has to be more unconditional, pure or whatnot.

A perfect moment has no limitations contrary to the popular idea of living in the now, which is something you forever can try to achieve but never obtain, as it is based on having to keep on excluding the past and the future.

A perfect moment can last a split second, while you are saying »Fuck you« – or it can last up to 45 minutes while you are having a daydream about tomorrow. It includes the past as well as the future. Actually, including is what it is all about – or rather not to exclude, as that means everything is included.

So if you do not exclude anything at this moment, no matter if it contains thoughts about the past and the future or if they are positive or negative, then there is nothing to define you in the present. Hence there is nobody to experience it. In other words, you are a state of not-knowing.

Meditation or others techniques supposed to make you spiritual will not get you there, because those ways are about excluding something, so a state of mind can be obtained in the future and not in this very moment. Hence they are making separation real and therefore you as someone special in a world of duality. In other words, the so-called spiritual techniques prolong the agony of being someone definitive instead of undoing the belief in being this.

The only reason you choose to block out the present by excluding part of it and space out in ideas of a better world to come is that you think, there is more than this moment. And your search will go on until you acknowledge you are mistaken.


*) If you have conditioned yourself within the concepts of living in the now, you may think a perfect moment is a point squeezed in between the past and the future. This idea of living in the now, however, is based on exclusion, whereas a perfect moment is inclusive and therefore includes both the past and the future. A perfect moment may last a split second, or as long as a kiss lasts, or a daydream lasts. There are no rules but to be inclusive. Should you forget that, you just include your forgetfulness.

Oneness has no choices, as that requires more than one – and that is why, it is nothing but peace

The appearances in a virtual world like a video game seem more exciting than the appearances in the world – and the world of duality seems more exciting than non-duality.

To appear as a hero in a virtual world like a video game seems often more exciting than what one appears to be in the physical world – just like being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, may seem more exciting than having nothing but the peace that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As oneness is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one, and as it takes more than one to experience something, any experience – falling in love, having a high consciousness or being transformed into to this and that – is an illusion.

For the same reason, there is nowhere to go. But as nothing is missing in that which is one, since it is endless and therefore everything, it is not necessary to go anywhere. That is why it is one perpetual present of peace.

In one perpetual present no one is special and no one takes up more space than another one, because there is no more than that which is one.

One perpetual present is not exciting though. There is nothing to search for, explore and be excited about because there is no future. Everything is there simultaneously in one eternal now. But most of all because it is not possible to be someone specific in one perpetual present, as that requires differentiation, so there is nobody to explore and be excited about anything, That is why it is nothing but peace.

The experience of movement in this image requires more than one, because without somebody watching it, it is totally still. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As it requires more than one to describe something, that which is one cannot be described, so the above description should not be taken literally. Neither should it be taken as a pointer to that which is one, as it also requires more than one to point to something. In this context, the description or any other in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings rather points towards the illusion of experiencing, realising or understanding something at all, as that requires more than one.

A world where there seems to be more than one can within the framework of such a world be compared to a video game, that you play when you want something more exciting than reality. And as long as you find excitement in exploring the deeper levels of the virtual world of such a game, you will keep playing it.

The more you play such a game, however, the more you will feel lost, because to get excited you must give up that which is real and pretend to be someone in a virtual world. In other words, the price of excitement is to give up the peace of oneness, since excitement can only be experienced where there seems to be more than one.

The excitement of more versus the peace of no more that which is one
As it takes more than one to be excited about something and as peace is that which is one there is no excitement in oneness. Hence you cannot get both of them. Actually, you cannot get any of them, since it requires more than one to get something.

Fortunately, you do not need to get peace, because that which is you is no different from that which is one and oneness is nothing but peace. But if you think that there must be more than one, you are always in need of excitement as it seems to prove there is more than one. Yet you are never satisfied. There always seems to be more levels explore and more to transform, when you believe there is more than that which is one.

You must acknowledge, where you have chosen to be in order to be able to undo your choice.

You are not the victim of the world, neither of the ego, so before you can have the belief that you are someone definitive undone, you must acknowledge, that it is you who have chosen to believe so. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You may blame the world for never getting enough. Yet that is not the cause but the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. It is you who choose to believe this, and this choice you will not be motivated to change as long as there is hope for new experiences of excitement triggered by for example a very special person, the latest gadget or the promise of a new and deeper way to transform what you appear to be into something better and/or higher.

When you know, that no lasting excitement to get in the future and that it was you who started this endless quest for more, you are ready to not get excited and make a choice for peace.

Well, you cannot choose that, but you can choose to not choose what is not peace, namely whatever that seems to excite you.

A way to start undoing the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is to question yourself, if more excitement is equal to less suffering.

Perhaps you are a fool running after more, but you are not stupid, so when you see that more is never enough and whatever you get more of entails more suffering, you will automatically correct the belief that more it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

The above is not meant to make you fill guilty about wanting more (or less) than that which is one. To do so is part of appearing in a world, where there seems to be more than one, so you are just doing what you are supposed to do. The question, however, is if you are getting what you are supposed to get. If not, you can choose to not choose what appears to be more than one.

You are not in a hurry though. Time is an illusion and as there is no more than that which is one, this is still that which is you, even though a world where there seems to be more than one seems to hide it.

APPENDIX:
Greed for being or having more is what keeps you going in a world, where there seems to be more than one, but it is also what makes your frustrated, because no matter how much how much more you become or get, it is not enough. You need more, and it must be larger, better, faster, wilder, deeper or purer. You are afraid of not getting it, and if you get it, you are afraid of losing it. Even if you do not lose it, you are afraid it is not good enough. In other words, the price of being and/or having more is suffering.

If you are stranded in a desert, there is no lasting solution but to leave it. The same applies to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one. There is no real solution to the constant fear of not having enough because nothing lasts in such a world. You need to sleep, again and again, you need more and more food and so on.

It is not the world as such, you need to leave in order to have enough and not be afraid of losing what you have. It is the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, that needs to be undone so that this belief does not appear to hide there is no more the peace of that which is one.

Undoing this belief is not an act of doing or not doing something, as it is not possible to be or have more than that which is one. In other words, you should not go with your own speed in your own time, because only in a world where there seems to be more than one, can you have something of your own.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality.

Peace is all there is when you do not believe in something

Without the longing for excitement, the moment is good enough as it is. This is so peaceful that there is no need for commanding the body to produce an orgasm. It is not a result of Tantra sex or anything else. Peace is not a result of something, but the lack of believing in something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
To indulge in excitement is to escape from the present, as it takes more than one to feel excited, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Besides that, excitement is always about something you are looking forward to in the future, imagining what it will be like if you, for example, a certain man/woman will love you. Should that happen, you start to imagine how exciting it will be to move together, have babies, a holiday cottage and whatnot.

Along the way, you may also imagine how excited your parents or friends will be for what you have achieved. But in reality, you have not achieved anything. That is why you keep looking for new ways to get excited, instead of realising that no matter how exciting you get, you do not feel at peace.

There is no excitement in peace because you do not look forward to something new when at peace. Excitement is imagination about something, that will fulfil you in the future. Peace though is not an imagination, and it cannot come in the future, neither can it fulfil you. Not to worry. There is no need for fulfilment because peace is one perpetual present – and that is all there is.

If it seems that this part of the article misses an end, it could be because peace never cares to finish anything, as it is that which is one, and oneness never ends.

Esoteric techniques like meditations are for those who care about how they appear in a world where there seems to be more than one. Using techniques like that is just a refined version of the old desire to the master of the universe. But if the world is an illusion, which is the idea behind most esoteric techniques, there is nothing to rule, healing, transform or whatnot.

PART 2:
If you have the need to use tantra in order to not get an orgasm or use other techniques like meditation to stop your desire for the peak experiences of a world where there seems to be more than one, you are very far from returning to that which is you, because if that is what you want, you do not care if you have an orgasm or any other experience of climax in such a world. Consequently, there is no need to avoid anything.

Tantra, meditation, chanting, tai chi and similar esoteric ways of control are for those who want to hide their self-hatred behind a spiritual image – just like the bodybuilder forces changes in the body to escape feeling wrong.

But no technique is needed to return to that which is you, since no return is needed, as that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness is endless there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. Hence it is not possible to leave it, so if you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is not real. In other words, there is nothing to leave but the belief that it is.

A relaxed body has no need for the physical climax of orgasm – but a tense body has, and if you believe to be in it, it must be tense in order to confirm this belief. But if you do not believe to be in it – or anywhere else for that matter – there is nobody with a need to make it real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
A physical orgasm is not gonna happen in a relaxed body but a tight one. This tightness is often caused by the control carried out to get what you want in the way you envision it should be, which seems very important when not looking for peace but excitement.

In other words, orgasm is only possible because you believe to be someone in a body and want to have this belief confirmed to be real through the excitement of an orgasm.

When you are in a state of indifference to the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one, which you cannot enter yourself through meditation and other techniques of self-control but by going with the flow of one or more of the duality hacks,* as they undo the belief in being or having a self, experiencing the sensation of an orgasm is no more sensational than any other experience.

Thus the body is not in need of producing a specific physical climax. In other words, there is no ejaculation.

This is also what you want to confirm if you try to avoid having an orgasm via tantra or other so-called spiritual techniques, as there would be no reason to avoid it, if not believing to be someone in a body.

Hence not wanting to be someone in a body – whether that appears to be physical and whatnot – will dissolve the need for a bodily climax, because only those believing to be in a body need it to produce a specific reaction in order to be confirmed in being there.


*) You can, for example, apply hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life to become nobody. Be aware though that seeing everything as symbols of life, you stop being somebody. Thus there is nobody to find peace, for example, through meditation or a good sleep nor to find an outlet for anger in love or sex. Fortunately, it is not needed, because to be nobody is peace. This does not mean, that feelings of anger, desire and whatnot do not pop up, but since there is notTantra, meditation, chanting, tai chi somebody in charge, the feelings belong to nobody. Thus nobody is shaped by them.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality. It is not meant to promote that orgasm, sex or anything else is wrong. It is only if you believe that a world where there seems to be more than one is real that you need to appoint something as wrong.

Pretending is a way to reality

Pretending to be a special place in the world of music.

It takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, so anything you believe in being is an illusion. This includes what you perceive to be spiritual. See All experiences are equally unreal.

In other words, since there is no life outside of that which is one, what you believe to be is as lifeless as the dolls in a dollhouse. Appearing to be someone definitive is make-believe. It is a fantasy in which you, like an actor, pretend to be what and where you are not.

Anything you believe in being, including being spiritual, is an illusion because it takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one. This includes believing to be spiritual. See All experiences are equally unreal.

That being said, nobody is making this fantasy. Just like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, nobody is making the dreams, you seem to have. And nobody, including you, is in those dreams, even though they appear to be in you.

Fortunately, pretending to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one does not seem to establish it as real, because what and you pretend to be, you are not. Thus appearing to be there seems to entail happiness and not the sadness that comes from believing to be someone there.

What you pretend to depend on what you imagine to be expected from you and what you believe to be in it for you.

As a musician, you quickly learn what you need to pretend in order to get success. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Samples of unconsciously pretending to be someone definitive
When you look for a new home, you may imagine what kind of person who used to live in the places you see and what kind of person you would be if living there.

At work, you may pretend to be someone who fits in socially and/or professionally. But when not at work, you probably pretend to your own. And going to the disco, you most likely to be a party-goer.

If your kids are worried, you pretend everything is fine, and if they are naughty, you pretend something bad will happen.

Being attracted by the look or the vibe of someone, you pretend the other one has exactly the personality that matches yours or that you are soulmates.

Making a pass on someone, you no doubt adjust your behaviour in accordance with what seems to turn the other on so you can pretend to be the person the other one wants.

Perhaps you imagine, while you read this, what kind of person you should pretend to be if you follow Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, or if you are opposed to that.

To recommend you pretend to be someone definitive is to advocate something, everybody already does. Thus it might be more correct to suggest being aware of it.

Maybe only your body is having sex with your spouse. You just pretend to be there, while thinking of somebody else. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A sample of consciously pretending …
… that you may already know from your way as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are having sex with your spouse, but only your body is there. You are fantasising about somebody else while you pretend to be with your spouse.

Knowing  a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe, you have fun pretending to be there
You might be aware, that in encounters like the above, you pretend to be someone you are not. Most likely, however, you suppress that you always pretend to be what you are not – like you all the time do in a role-play, for example. And just like appearing to be someone in the world of a role-play is fun because you know it is make-believe, so is appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one when you know it is fictional.

In other words, when you know the world is virtual, you know that everything – the energetic people in an advertisement for Coca-Cola, the glamourous rockstar, or the beautiful people on social media, for example – is all pretence. Thus you do not look for authenticity but the entertainment that comes from pretending to be what you are not.

To search for the truth in a game like Monopoly is meaningless. There is nothing to realise in its world, because you are not ´there´. But that you can realise. Likewise, when you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

And since you already know how to pretend to be a person in a make-believe world – just think about when you are on a dating site or social media, play a game or an air guitar – this is easy. Especially if you also keep reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings because they are not afraid to admit, they are just as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, and thus the belief that you are someone there.

Just like it is just as illusionary to be a red or a blue car in Monopoly, for example, or how many scratches the vehicle gets. The damages are not real, and they do not change that which is. In other words, what you pretend to be, you are no, so that which is you remains unchanged, whether you pretend to be compassionate or merciless, for example. Here you can read more about not being in a game or anywhere.


It is not explainable why you experience to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one because to do so takes more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you are tired of the pretence and falseness, that appears to be in a world where there seems to be more than one and look for more authenticity, you deceive yourself. You would not experience to be someone if you want truthfulness.

In that case, there would be no experiences,  because that which is authentic cannot be known. It is that which is one and it takes more than one to be conscious of something.

Pretending to be what and where you are not is entertaining
It requires much control to uphold the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. So if you are fed up from being holed as someone definitive, you pretend to be that. It is so fun that there is no need for self-control.

Eventually, therefore, there is no belief that appears to hide there never was and never will be more than that which cannot be believed as it takes more than one to do so and it is that which is one which is formless and therefore endless.

Pretending is neither bad or good but the way to appear as someone in a make-believe world.

You may think, pretending is a bad thing, and that you better stop acting and find the real you so you can express that.

First of all: That which is you has nothing to express. It is formless and therefore endless, so so there is nothing else and no one to communicate with.

Secondly: The oneness of that which is you cannot be found in a world defined by time and space. Nothing can be found in such a world but illusions, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is you.

Pretending is neither bad or good. It is just a tool that you use to appear where you are. You cannot be in the illusionary world of a video game, a movie, a book or a dream, but you can pretend to be there.

How you appear to be is not important when you do not believe that it is you

But whether you believe or pretend to be in the world of a book, it takes the same course. Likewise, in a world where there seems to be more than one. The difference though between believing or pretending to be there is that in the case of the latter, you feel entertained regardless of the outcome.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

Pretending to be someone definitive is such a relief

IMG_2901

On vacation in a foreign country, you appear to be a different person than in your native country because you pretend to be a tourist exploring another world. Likewise, what you seem to be in a world defined by time and space is not that which is you but something you pretend to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
When an electric bulb breaks down, it cannot use the electricity coming from the power station to illuminate a world outside itself. This feels like death if it is identified with what this defines it to be, namely a bulb radiating light on something. Nothing, however, is dead if it does not believe to be a bulb but pretends to be that because what it pretends to be, it is not. It is the electricity that always was and will be and for a moment, made it possible to pretend it was a lamp. Read more about electricity as a metaphor for life here.

Likewise, in a world defined by time and space, nothing lasts so if you believe to be someone there, nor do you. But if you pretend to be there, you remain as that which is you, and since it is formless and therefore endless, it never ends.

Pretending to be something you are not can be compared to pretending to be someone in roleplay. In regards to a world defined by time and space, this must be set in motion before you appear to leave it. Otherwise, you will try to hang onto what you believe to be there.

When you do not believe to be in a world defined by time and space, the absurdity of it becomes a comedy in which you have fun to pretending to take part of it.

Now you as an entity defined by time and space falls apart.

When the body stops to function, you fall apart as someone definitive. If not fighting this, there is not something to hide, there never was or will be anything but life since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

So when – in the context of the bulb metaphor – a bulb cannot illuminate something anymore, it is forever dead, if identified with the ability to do that. But if it acknowledges, it is not what it can do, but that which makes it possible to do it, it remains as electricity.

Although electricity makes it possible to experience this article on an electronic media, it is not in the article. Likewise, there is no life in a world defined by time although it is what makes it possible to fantasise about not being formless but definitive.

This does not mean, it knows electricity because it is not in the world it lights up But it means that it does not define itself as something definitive. Hence there is no consciousness of being anything and thus not something that appears to die when it cannot pretend to be someone illuminating a world outside of itself anymore.

The way you used to think, feel and act when you believed to be someone definitive is the same when you pretend to be someone, except that sexual lust, rage or anything else that is politically incorrect is not condemned. That is because when you pretend to be someone definitive, you do not perceive the difference between good and evil to make a difference.

There is no need to search for that which is you because it is not in the world defined by time and space. Just like in the context of such world, you are not in a game you are playing there. Thus all that you can find is what you are not. That is exactly what you discover when pretending to be someone in a world of duality.

Nothing is waiting for you, as there is no more than that which is one. In other words, when you are finished pretending to be someone definitive, you do not return to the formlessness of oneness because you never left it.

Scientists have not discovered the origin of the world because there is none. It does not exist. That is why they cannot find dark matter, which they claim is the missing link in proving the existence of the world. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

INTERLUDE:
Just like the recording on a protected compact disc cannot be replaced with a new one, that which is one cannot be replaced with a world where there seems to be more than one. Not because oneness is protected, but because it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

You are, therefore, deceiving yourself if you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. No worries. This deception is easily corrected. If you pretend to be in such a world, you are not there.

You will do anything to experience, that you are touched by something – whether it seems to be good or bad, mundane or spiritual, imaginative or real – because it makes you feel alive.

PART 2:
No matter how good the graphics are in a video game, the characters are not able to touch you. So if you feel affected by them, it does not come from the game but yourself. This self-deception takes place every time you project thoughts onto a character that seem to make you feel something specific. In other words, what you get is what you give.

Forgetting this and being absorbed by the virtual reality in a video game, the fastest way to leave it and return to the world is to turn it off. What is judged to be the real world, however, is just as virtual though as the world in the video game. Being absorbed by that, you can only stop this self-deception by turning off the switch to the experience of being someone definitive.

If you believe to be in a world that is virtual, you cannot be taught how to leave it, because you are not there.

Speeding up the appearance of thoughts until they do not appear to be more than one is the switch to turn off the belief in being in a world where there seems to be more than one. See A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a movie of that which is one played in slow motion. To go from slow to fast, you have to begin where you appear to be by starting to pretend you are there instead of believing it. 

The more you pretend this, the less you are there, because where you pretend to be you are not. Thus the need to seek out thoughts, that can be projected on something imagined, so it seems to be confirmed as real, fades out, and when they are not kept under control, they automatically speed up to until there is no more than one.

Pretending to be a person is a way out.

You say goodbye to the belief that you are someone definitive by pretending to be it because what you pretend to be, you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words, it is by pretending to be someone definitive in a virtual world, you eventually remember that you are not there. It is not possible because reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to be somewhere.

No need to worry about how to speed up thoughts. If you do not try to slow them down by controlling, categorising and processing them, there is nothing to stop them from doing that. Just like it is the nature of a river to run faster and faster towards the ocean, it is the nature of thoughts to speed up until there is no more than one.

Read more about not controlling thoughts in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

The man appearing in this pic with his daughter is hardly ´there´ anymore, but the daughter by his side wants to imagine him as a person in the world, the way he used to be, even though he himself may not remember that, or that it is his daughter by his side helping him to appear in the world.

If the daughter in this photo believes she has a lovely walk with her father, she is bound to become upset because he is not aware of her being his daughter. But if being together is something she pretends to be, there is nothing to upset her. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Interaction is the name of the game if a virtual world is to appear real. But since the communication is founded on what you imagine others think, you interact with a fantasy of yours, and since what you believe to be is based on this, you are a fantasy as well. In other words, what you appear to be is make-believe – just like Santa Claus, for example.

You stopped believing the adventure of Santa Claus when you grew up, but you still think you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Undoing that belief is like having fun pretending to be Santa Claus. In other words, when you pretend to be someone definitive instead of believing it, you have fun because what you pretend to be, you are not. Hence nothing brings you down.

Having fun being nobody, there is not somebody with the need to be confirmed by others as real. Thus you can enjoy the illusion of love or whatnot.

To be free from what you are not is to not be anything at all, because it takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 4:
It is the belief that you are someone definitive who experiences something specific that seems to hide, there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness. This belief, however, corrects itself, the more you pretend to be someone definitive because that confirms you are nobody.

Fortunately, this is already so. What you appear to be is empty space. This is why nothing about your appearance in a world defined by time and space needs to be changed or transformed. On the contrary. Changes, also if perceived to be spiritual, enhances the belief that there is more than that which is one since it takes more than one to modify something.

The undoing of this belief is not about opening up or surrender to a higher power as that requires more than one. Since it, therefore, takes nobody to undo the belie, you pretend you are somebody, because what you pretend to be, you are not.

Perceiving your experiences as nothing instead of something, they are revealed to be lifeless.

PART 5:
Metaphorically speaking, the universe is a shadow of that which is one where there appear to be more than one. Read more about that here. But since there is no life in a shadow, the only way to appear to be there is to pretend it.

What´s casting a shadow is not in the shadow.

That which is casting a shadow is not in the shadow. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Grasping this you are free to pretend to be any kind of person. Maybe you like to pretend you are committed, and so you do until you prefer to pretend you are a careless or you love everybody. Whatever you fancy, you can pretend to be.

If you feel bad about something you seem to think, remember that thoughts are like shadows. They are not you.

By pretending to be somebody, you remain that which is you and therefore detached from what you pretend to be. A shadow, of course, is always attached to whatever is casting it, but that which is throwing it is detached from the shadow because it is not in it.

PART 6:
As already said, the world can be compared to a shadow, and a shadow cannot give you anything – not even dissatisfaction, so if that is how you feel, it is not real. All that you seem to get from a shadow is imagined.

From this follows it os up to you to choose what you imagine to get. At least as long as you go for something within the limitation of the shadow world. Just like when pretending to be someone in a game like Monopoly, you can be happy with what you get within the limits of it. Should you lose something, it is nothing. The same applies to the shadow world, so why not give it your best shot and have fun pretending to really be physically there? You have nothing to lose.

In a world where there seems to be more than one you cannot realise that which is real, namely the formlessness of oneness. But you can realise, that what you appear to be is a fantasy. Doing so, you are free to pretend what to be and enjoy the experiences this seems entail.

To resume, do not try to be spiritual. There is no spirituality in a shadow, only in that which appears to cast it, namely that which is one. If pretending to be what you are not, the unselfishness of that eventually makes all experiences go away, so nothing seems to hide there is no more than that which is one.

Holding back ejaculation is just another material manifestation – but without the physical thrill of it

No matter if you call it love or sex,those emotions will have aphysical manifestation.

PART 1:
Will a computer become anything else than that, just because you do not turn it on? No. It remains the same. And a leg, for example, remains physical even though you deny using parts of it.

Will a flower seed become a carrot seed, if you plant it among carrots? No. You are fooling yourself.

Will the instincts that result in a hard penis, become anything else than what they are, if you try to withhold the ejaculation? No. You are just avoiding the relief of going with the flow.

Trying to change or transcend something enhances the the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

You may think that using tantra and similar techniques to hold back ejaculation results in a spiritual transformation. On the contrary. By denying the body the pleasure of letting go, you enhance the belief, that physicality is something and spirituality is nothing.

Besides, it is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that change is possible, and spirituality is that which is one. Since it is formless and therefore endless, a world where there seems to be more than one, therefore, is an illusion. In other words, changes seem to establish the fantasy of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one as real and that which is one as unreal.

Since spirituality is formless, it is endless. Consequently, you are either spiritual or nothing. The latter is the case if you appear to have a shape. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you do not believe to be someone in a physical world, you do not want to change, transcend or transform anything there. Nor to stop yourself from the thrill of having a physical orgasm. It is as unreal as Santa Claus bringing presents to all the good children. Yet it is fun pretending to be physical (read more about that here).

In the framework of this game, it is the nature of physics that the sun warm makes you warm and water makes you wet. No degree of personal control can change that. Nor can it changed physical needs. And since nobody has forced you into this game of being somebody, it is evident that you want to participate. So why not honour your desire and give it your best shot?

If you give it your best shot as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one you are surprised because what you get is nothing. Being astonished, though, requires more than one and without something to hide there is no more than that which is one, this is not possible to, nor to believe you are someone.

When you pursue your physical desire for sex in a tangible and horny way, the physical thrill of an orgasm is incredible. Especially because it is extended by the empty breath that makes the whole body quiver of joy, so you feel revitalised and not emptied after ejaculation. If that, by the way, is triggered by fantasy or something perceived to be real does not matter. It is all make-believe.

APPENDIX:
Sex is such a deep desire that it must be an essential motivation for believing it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Since this illusion, therefore, is founded on that which is one, an orgasm should not be stopped but enjoyed as a positive confirmation of oneness.
