What and where are the inward and outward-facing senses [draft]

Alexius Jorgensen have an automatic synchronisation of the inner an outer senses

The empty breath synchronises the outward and inward-facing senses. Hence, we become indifferent to being somebody in the tangible world of the outward-facing senses and thus responsive to being nobody in the abstract world of the inward-facing senses. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This and the previous article attempt to supply you with info about the empty breath. It can be beneficial for connecting with it, but it is not essential. So if you want, you can skip this article and go straight to Take-offs into ´the empty breath´.

What and where are the inward-facing and outward-facing senses

In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, the abstract world we can experience inside us is referred to as the world of the inward-facing senses, and the tangible world that we experience outside of us as the world of the outward-facing senses. Yet, both experiences are founded on the same frequencies of nothingness supposedly hitting the same senses.

In other words, as the world of the inward-facing senses is seen, heard, felt and tasted via the same organs that seem to pick up the world of the outward-facing senses, the inner and outward-facing senses are not different organs but different ways of experiencing the same frequencies of nothingness, that seem to hit the senses.

»If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light« (Matt 6:22, King James Bible)

That being said, the organ used for the visual experience of the outer and inner world is not exactly the same because the inner sense of sight does not come from two eyes but from having them merged into one* on top of the two eyes. This single eye is by some called the third eye.

Within and without makes no difference when the inner an outer senses are in sync

That there are experiences to have within and without is a deception made by the brain because no matter where something is experienced to be, it is a fabrication created by the brain from out of nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world of the inward-facing senses is experienced to be abstract because the frequencies of nothingness hitting the senses have not yet been processed by the brain to appear as if they are physical elements in the world of the outward-facing senses, that is the version of the same frequencies the brain processes in such a way, that we appear to be somebody definitive who have a conscious experience of being in a substantial world.

But as it takes more than one to experience something and as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, any experience is an illusion, regardless it seems to come from the outer or inward-facing senses.

For more about the brains fabrication of something from out of nothing check hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one or the articles ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone and Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

Consequently, the above distinction between inward and outward-facing senses and their existence and a brain receiving something real from senses is part of the non-existing brains plot to deceive you into believing you are experiencing something where there is nothing.

It takes nobody to know where the inner senses are


The abstract world of the inward-facing senses is experienced when time and space are not entirely believed to be real. Ultimately speaking, though, the experience of an inner world is no more real than the experience of an outer world because any kind of experience requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is, therefore, only in the context of the belief that there is someone to believe this, that there seems to be an experience an abstract world, which is only lightly processed by the brain from the frequencies of nothingness and a substantial world that is heavily processed by the brain from the same frequencies.**

The abstract experience of an inner world opens up when you do not entirely believe to be someone definitive. Hence there is little left of this belief when you are in the inner world, otherwise, there would be nobody to experience the abstractness of the inner world. In other words, when you appear to be nobody in the world of the inward-facing senses, you have not totally left the belief in being somebody because somebody is needed to register the experiences of nobody. Thus the abstractness of nothing you experience in the world of the inward-facing senses is slightly something.

As these intangible experiences that the brain uses a split second to produce are an incomplete version of the outer world, the brain uses one more second to fabricate the experience of an inner world closer to nothing than the experience of an external world. Actually, what you experience right now in the world of the outward-facing senses happened one second ago – or more to the point, it never happened because the frequencies that seem to hit the senses and from which the experience is a fabrication of something from nothing.

Thus experiencing the frequencies hitting the senses to be an abstract world is closer to reality than experiencing them to be a substantial world. Not in the sense, though, that you are closer to being here and now because the truth is that which is one and it takes more than one to be anywhere, but in the sense that the inner world exposes the world of the outward-facing senses to be nothing but empty space and thus the world of the inward senses as well because without the world of the outward-facing senses it cannot be experienced.

Hence you come to a point in the world of the inward-facing senses, where there is no point or anything else to experience, nor that the enlightenment of that which is one comes out of this point, that for a moment looks like a black hole.** And so there is not something to hide that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of oneness.

Should you wonder, who choose to believe the fabrication of the brain is real and who wonders about this, read the paragraph ´What you believe to be does not exist´ in ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

The inner and outer senses are nowhere

Since it takes more than one to experience you are nobody or be in a state of not-knowing, this is not the goal. But since it also requires more than one to have a purpose, there is no goal but being indifferent to anything that requires more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Consequently, the enlightenment of that which is one neither occurs in the inner or outer world or somewhere else. It is the end of every experience, and then again, it is not the end of anything because it takes more than one to believe something, and there is no more than that which is one. In other words, every experience of something, whether it is spiritual or mundane, is nothing.

In a state of not-knowing, that the empty breath induces, you are more nobody than somebody. And as the memories of you as someone definitive mostly are gone, you are in the bliss of being indifferent to what and where you appear to be.

Contrary to the enlightenment of that which is one, the connection with the empty breath does not terminate your appearance as someone definitive. Within the context of this appearance, it syncs the inner and outer world, so being nobody is balanced with being somebody per what and where you appear to be.

The inner and outer senses are a fantasy

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

The empty breath is not specifically about being in the world of the inward-facing senses or anywhere else than in its flow of indifference. And wherever that appears to take you does not matter, because you are in its flow of indifference.

In a deep sleep, for example, you are almost a hundred per cent nobody and just a few percents somebody, so that the glimpses of enlightenment* nobody is having in a deep sleep can be registered by somebody. But driving a car, the empty breath makes sure you are almost a hundred per cent present as the chauffeur and just enough per cent of nobody to not get stressed.

Experiences of enlightenment is not the enlightenment of that which is one. It cannot be experienced, but glimpses of it can.**

Being connected with the empty breath, you may have glimpses of enlightenment, but you do not know before afterwards because, having them, you are in a state of not-knowing.*** However, this is not a state that reveals reality, but that anything experienced is a fantasy made from empty space.

What and where the inner and outward-facing senses are cannot be answered, as they are an imagination made from nothing.

Having that revealed, you are set free from the belief in being someone somewhere, and though it may sound strange for those who believe to be somewhere, being nowhere is pure bliss.

APPENDIX:
Keeping a balance between the inner and outward-facing 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. However, in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is beneficial to have the empty breath balance the world of the inner and outward-facing senses, so glimpses of enlightenment from the world of the inward-facing senses become the foundation of how to perceive the world of the outward-facing senses, namely as an illusion.

Check the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment for how to see, hear, feel and taste glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one.

By doing that, you relate to the world of the outward-facing senses like you do to a video game. It is not real. Yet you have fun pretending that it is. 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 that spirituality is that which is one, and since it takes more than one to be somewhere, it is nowhere.

When this insight is the foundation of being somewhere, it can be pretty fun pretending to in the world of the outward-facing senses – just like within the context of that world, pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game is quite entertaining, because you know it is not real.

What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? [draft]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A basic intro to the non-definitive shape of the empty breath
The empty breath is modelled like an egg-shaped ball with lots of oval circles moving inside it, but contrary to what you see in the illustration to the right, it does not have a definitive centre or border. Nor do the circles inside 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. You cannot see this 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 its edges are blurry but that neither its size nor shape is constant. It may grow bigger and smaller here and there so that it momentarily feels to be more pear-shaped than egg-shaped, for example.

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

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

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

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

This could be like going in a circle 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. You can expand the diameter so it goes from the abdomen to a point above the head or from the rectum to a point further above the head.

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

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

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

A basic intro to the ways of feeling the empty breath
Sensing the operator of the empty breath (see the below paragraph of the same name) or the indifference of it (check out the section The empty breath is not the giver of joy and happiness but indifference in the article What is ´the empty breath´ about?) is a state of not-knowing in which you seem to be floating on clouds of bliss. In contrast, the state of not-knowing coming from the rhythmic flow is more like 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 section The swing of the empty breath), or sensed as if nobody is surfing two yin-yang like waves in and outside the body (see the next paragraph).

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

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

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

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

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

It is not needed to be in total sync with the rhythm of the physical expansion and contraction of the body, nor does it matter if part of the circular movement is skipped. What matters is to follow the flow as it comes to you because that makes you forget the physical breath 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, more or less aligned with the breath extracting and contracting the body. There might be even more joyous ways revealed to you when following the flow.

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

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

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

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

Going with the flow without knowing where and why.

Surfing the empty breath to feel good regardless of the physical condition
You will, as already noted, mainly feel the flow of the waves in one of the many circles inside the empty breath. This will probably be in a circle going from the back of the body to 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 writing what the empty breath feels like and, therefore, took a closer look at it. He usually just follows the flow without thinking about direction and whatnot, because in his case, the flow primarily results in the sense of indifference.

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

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

Just like what you believe to be is nothing, so is the empty breath, but unlike you, it has no need to conceal that by appearing to be something 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 impulsive or deliberate 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 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.

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

The empty breath is also beneficial for alleviating allergy symptoms or other symptoms of IBS and COPD, for example. It may not heal these or any other physical sicknesses because the purpose of Alexius´ Duality Hacks is not to heal the body but the sick belief you are in it. This the empty breath does by making you indifferent to being someone. Read more about that here.

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

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

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

See also when Alexius was saved by helicopter from the rainforest, even though he did not feel there was something to be 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 instead be used by it, so going with the flow sets the body free to heal itself. This is why it is brilliant in the case of psychosomatic disorders. However, it is not commendable to catch every detail about the empty breath in this article because an intellectual understanding of it will not help you feel connected with it.

In hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues, you can read more about the unfortunate belief that one can mix physical and psychological issues results in psychosomatic disorders.

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

It is impossible to illustrate the swing of the empty breath because it has no definable form or movement. This animation, however, may give you an idea about how the swing of it feels as if it is coming from a non-definitive curved line that is to be compared to the line in between the two forms of a yin-yang sign – but less curved. The swing of this line expands and contracts the body so that it breathes in and out. But unlike in a yin-yang sign, the swing of the empty breath is not inside a flat circle but rather a non-definable ball, wherein there are many non-definable circles with each their own curved line. Depending on where one of these circles are experienced to be located, the swing of the empty breath is experienced to swing upwards and downwards, sideways, forwards and backwards or anywhere in between. Unfortunately, the animation is not really illustrating this, nor that although the swing of it is mighty, the experience of it often is that it is in no hurry to expand and contract the body.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The transparent sound of the empty breath
Just like the rhythm of bass is heard and felt in the body, so is the sound of the empty breath, which is like ´so´ when it expands the body and ´ham´ when contracting it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Via the transparent sound of the empty breath, you may naturally float into glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, 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 symbolise or taste its sweetness.

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

Read more about how to have glimpses of the different aspects of the enlightenment in the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment. And read more about the enlightenment of that which is one in hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one.

However, the empty breath 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 regard 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 the holes, as there are no holes in the waves of the empty breath) may give you an idea about the simultaneous movement of the yin-yang like waves inside it.

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

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

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

Please remember that even though the connectedness with the empty breath is impersonal, what you remember afterwards is personal. Hence your memories may seem different than those of Alexius.

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

Thus you would be better off 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. Indeed, they will rapidly change. That is if you do not try to hang onto one of them. In that case, they will cease.

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


NOTE ABOUT NOTHING VERSUS SOMETHING
In the below articles, you can read about overriding the natural flow of nothing, so you appear to be something and thus fence off the empty breath:

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

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

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

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

NOTE ABOUT THIS ARTICLE
The above article that is part of hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing, is to be continued in the next one. What is ´the empty breath´ about?.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Those insisting in oneness being stillness are those who want to take it slow, because that gives them time to feel they are in control.

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

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

If you remain in that state for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, the speed of the thoughts become so fast that they merge into the enlightenment of that which is one, from where there is nothing to gently fall into the formlessness of oneness. See hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one. Most, however, never enter a state of not-knowing and if they do they leave it after a few seconds or minutes. So we return to the subject of this hack, which is not that which is one but how to enjoy the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one while slowly but surely having it undone.

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

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

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

In a state of not-knowing, the apparent difference between specific thoughts is not perceived to make a difference, neither is the supposed difference between what is presumed to be you and others. Thus there is nobody to be separated from somebody or at one with anybody – nor to experience the bliss that this entails.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read more about the cancellation of contrasts and thus of you as someone definitive in Without contrasts, there is no duality, and so nothing seems to hide there is no more than non-duality. See hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues about hiding feelings in the body and the psychosomatic disorders it entails.

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

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

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

Since these memories slowly by surely rubs off on your perception of what and where you appear to be as someone definitive, you do not need to avoid or hold onto any feeling to establish yourself as special. Consequently, the body is not used as a garbage bin for unwanted feelings, so it is not disturbed by immaterial matters and can take care of physical issues just like it was made to do. However, when it comes to viruses transferred from wild animals, for example HIV, Mers and COVID 19, and other sicknesses generated by the way of modern living, the body generally needs help from healthcare professionals.

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

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

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

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

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

Hence there is not something that seems to hide, there never was or will be nothing but that which is one. Read about the enlightenment of that which is one in HACK #6, The inward-facing senses, enlightenment, and glimpses of it. This does not only mean that the appearance of you as someone definitive is terminated, but that you have never existed, neither in a material or spiritual way, because it takes more than one to exist.

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

Obviously, nor Alexius or anybody else has passed the point of no return in the enlightenment of that which is one because a world where there seems to be more than one is still experienced, and it only takes one to undo what is not one because there is no more than that which is one.

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

You do not get stressed from always having to avoid what you judge as negative, being angry for example, when perceiving everything as it is what it is. Read more about this perception in hack #4.2The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy).

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

If you have read HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end, you have probably grasped that you, in the terms of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, are the basic self when perceiving everything as ´it is what it is´ and the special self when perceiving it as ´I know what it is,´ which is to state you know better than the brain and have established yourself as more unique than the basic self – or in the process of accomplishing it.

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

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


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

Notes on the duality flow [draft]

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

To make long short, the solution to everything, in a world of duality, is to go with the flow of the opposing elements that make up the pairs of duality. You hook up with the duality flow by perceiving your reaction to something as ´it is what it is

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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


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

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

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


NOTES:

Notes on feelings

Pinching yourself in the arm, the brain registers a physical feeling. Hence you conclude, you are alive. But since the experience of the physical sensation is created by the brain, this conclusion does not prove you exist as someone substantial in a tangible world outside the brain – just like regardless of what and where you experience to be in a dream, you are not there but in your bed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

»If you’re sitting in a safe and comfortable position, close your eyes and try to feel your heart beating in your chest. Can you, without moving your hands to take your pulse, feel each movement and count its rhythm? Or do you struggle to detect anything at all? This simple test is just one way to assess your ´interoception´ – your brain´s perception of your body’s state, transmitted from receptors on all your internal organs … There’s a constant communication dialogue between the brain and the viscera (internal organs).«

The above test reveals if the connection between the brain and the body works in you. The quote is from the article Interoception: the hidden sense that shapes wellbeing in the Guardian. Like in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, the article concludes that many people have cut off the link between the body and the brain. And since the latter controls the body, it is left without guidance.

According to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, this connection must be re-established, so no body parts act independently but work as a group governed by the brain. But, of course, the article in the Guardian has another conclusion. It says that you need to master the body, and in doing so, you are in touch with its signals and thus your feelings because they are in the body.

But believing you are the master of body and brain is the root of the problem. To become a master, the natural connection between the body and the brain must be cut off, so you can take over and impose your ideas of who you are or is going to be. Read more about that in hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

This idea is ridiculous because you do not know who you are nor how the body or brain functions. Besides, if you, for example, assume you are spiritual, this assumption is based on selected experiences produced by the brain. Hence you are nothing but a product fabricated and conducted by the brain via the experiences it creates. In other words, feelings do not come from the heart or somewhere else than the brain, which governs the body and what and where you appear to be.

For sure, you fall off the planet if you interfere with gravity. And you mess up the body when you disrupt or meddle with its ongoing communication with the brain. In short, in the game of duality, the brain is the game master. You cannot change it, but you have plenty of fun following the game master. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Therefore, to feel good as someone in the game of the brain, you must step aside and let it do its thing. This does not mean you do not involve yourself but that you do not try to change anything. Like when you watch a movie. It is your involvement that makes it entertaining when you go with the plot as it is.

In other words, you are not a master but a servant. And you serve the brain by perceiving your reaction to the experiences it produces as ´it is what it is.´ That reveals your response is twofold, and since the world of the brain is dual, you are in sync with the brain. Being that you are best buddies with the brain, and that feels good. Read more about that in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

If you do not want to play the game of duality, you are free to leave it. However, you cannot do that unless you play it. And since participating involves feeling it, we go on in the below by looking at the feelings that seem to attest to you being someone in a world of duality.

It is not done in an organised way, though. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings has nothing to prove because they know they are as illusionary as anything else in a world of duality. Yet, reading the below ragbag of clips from older unpublished articles, this acknowledgement may help you see what you believe in being is also an illusion.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

This article is not about enlightenment or the reality of oneness, but how to live with the nature of duality because you have chosen duality in place of non-duality. If you want to undo this decision entirely, you must live fully with negative and positive feelings. Fortunately, doing that is easy when you do not see negative feelings as bad but go with the interaction of negativity and positivity like you do with breathing in and out.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You cannot breathe out before you breathe in and vice versa. In other words, you cannot have one without the other. That is how duality works. Everything comes in pairs. If you go with that, you feel complete. But if you try to divide the pairs into separate elements, you feel incomplete.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To prevent being touched by the natural flow of feelings, you make sure everything in your environment is adjusted to the rules of Feng Shui or another totalitarian system. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world can be compared to a blindfold on your eyes. Nobody but yourself keeps the blindfold there, and you do it by having specific feelings of the world. Because of that, you cannot bid welcome that which cannot be felt, namely non-duality. When you do not perceive feelings to be specific, the blindfold starts to dissolve.

However, you cannot stop perceiving feelings to be definitive if you do not know them. In many cases, you hide psychological feelings to be accepted by society. And to make a love relationship last, you believe you must favour the attitudes accepted as love in preference to those not approved as loving.

Defending yourself towards specific feelings turns out to be a defence towards all of them. Therefore, since you do not feel anything, you simulate feeling something in the way you are supposed to. If something is so shocking that you are about to touch a genuine feeling, you burst into laughter to distance yourself from going with the flow of emotions, so you can fend off facing you do not love yourself.

To make a long story short: Even though the world only appears real due to feelings, most of them are suppressed and not known by the world. If they were, everybody could undo the feeling of being someone in a capsule of time and space.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since feelings are heavier than thoughts, they seem to be a hindrance to contact more refined energies. Yet, it is of no help to deny feelings and instead focus on their energies if you want to undo the belief in duality because it is based on feeling it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you know you undo fear by not holding back your breath, but you keep doing that, you understand you have chosen to feel frightened. This is all you need to sense to make way for a change. Because when you realise you have made a choice that is bad for you, you set the body free to choose – and it only decides what is best for you. Thus wholly breath starts rolling. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Most suppress negative thoughts because they do not seem to be in their favour when they try to impress their boss or a potential new girl/boyfriend, for example. In other words, most split up the constant interaction of negativity and positivity into elements to be used independently in stories to manipulate others. It is much easier to make others feel good about you when wrapping everything up in stories that distance yourself from negativity.

However, the main reason one suppresses negative thoughts is not because of others but for oneself. You are simply afraid of them. Negative thoughts in one´s childhood can be dangerous to express. In the case of Alexius, in his childhood, he was beaten by his father if he said or did something judged as offensive. So he did not dare to express his negative thoughts about being treated like that because he was afraid they would cause him to be further beaten up. Therefore, to not accidentally voice them, he suppressed them.

But just like the negative pole in electricity is as important as the positive one, you need negative thoughts as much as positive ones in a world of duality. If you suppress the negative ones, you deteriorate, whereas you blossom if you approve of them.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since that which is you is no different from that which is one, you may vaguely remember there is no more than that which is one. Thus may try to have one lover, one home, one god and so on to fake oneness in a world where there seems to be more than one. However, such a world can only be experienced due to contrasts, so everything comes in pairs. Therefore, since it is impossible to be faithful to only one, you get confused if you insist on singularity.

To walk, you need two legs. And to take one step forward, you must include the past because it is the building stone for your future step. Twofoldness is always the way in a world where there seems to be more than one. If you respect that, you honour to have chosen to believe there is such a world. Thus it can be undone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You do not breathe in and out to find a balance between expansion and contraction. Neither do you need to find a balance between body and brain. What you need is to let the brain do its thing so you, in a laid-back fashion, can enjoy being someone in a world of duality. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not facing both up and down, you will be mistaken about yourself. Feeling down without getting the interaction of up and down, you will find you are a freak. Mainly feeling up, and using it to deny feeling down, you fake normality.

But you do not feel neither normal nor abnormal if you go with the interaction of up and down like you go with breathing in and out, as going with the constant interplay of opposites, you are not definitive but relative.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Often a person full of light has relationships with somebody more in the dark. Both probably use the other to see their complementary side. If this is not done unconsciously but consciously, they see the underworld and the overworld in the other.

Since it is easier to see your hidden side in someone that seems separated from you, there is nothing wrong in projecting that onto somebody else. The world is one giant projection anyway, and while you seem to be in such a world, it is much easier to see what you have separated from yourself in others. So go ahead and point your finger at others.

That is the fastest way to bring back home what you have disassociated yourself from. It is quicker than meditation or anything else. Read more about that in The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

Neither hell nor heaven is part of the world you see. Nevertheless, they are part of duality – and if you want to stop using duality as a cover for non-duality, you must be willing to acknowledge all contrasts that appear to cover that which has no contrast, namely non-duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You do not have to perceive yourself as stupid if you stumble over something. Instead, you can laugh about it. To do that you do not suppress the irritation you feel but perceive it as ´it is what it is.´ This reveals annoyance is coupled with calmness. Thus there is no reason to judge yourself as stupid or anything else for that matter. In other words, there does not seem to be something wrong with you when you go with the duality flow.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

All emotional problems are caused by you breaking up the polarity that defines duality. For example, you separate love from hate, so they seem independent of each other, and you, therefore, can have love without hate. But everything comes in pairs of opposites in a world of duality. So splitting them up into separate and distinct elements, you get the loneliness of separation, whereas going with the interaction of opposites, you have the togetherness of twofoldness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It´s very easy to choose not to store thoughts, so you are empty, if you don´t have a need to uphold a certain image of yourself.

If you are full of thoughts, you are busy assigning meaning to your experiences. However, none of your experiences means anything. Their only purpose is to entertain you. Being that, there is no need to look for thoughts to explain something. Hence you do not have a bad time. On the contrary, you feel amused. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Suffering comes from the way you have decided to interpret something. Therefore, if you suffer, you have chosen to assign specific experiences with a meaning that makes you suffer.

That is not solved by changing your interpretation but by not insisting it is definitive. This occurs when perceiving your conditioned interpretation as ´it is what it is´ because that reveals it is not on its own. Instead, it is coupled with its counterpart. And since everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, you feel at home when you see your interpretation is twofold.

In other words, if you do not feel at home, your perception of the experiences created by the brain is out of sync. This is not corrected by letting go of the past, living in the now or coming from the heart. Such ideas are concepts of singularity, and all experiences of the brain are dual. Therefore, if your reaction to them is dualistic, you are in sync with the brain.

Fortunately, this is already so. You just hide it by insisting on having a distinct reaction to the experiences created by the brain. This you undo by perceiving your response to the past or now as ´it is what it is.´ That reveals it is not singular but twofold. Thus you feel at home.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To feel is to separate. Thus you stop separating when you do not insist on feeling something specific. That is simply done by perceiving the meaning you have assigned to something as ´it is what it is.´ That reveals that what you have decided it means is not set in stone. Instead, it is complemented by its counterpart. So if you thought you were sad, it turns out you are happy/sad.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To feel is to not exists because it takes two to feel something, and life is that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to feel something, but it seems possible to feel something if one imagines being in a world where there seems to be more than one. Can you feel it? Of course, you can. You are reading this. That means you think it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, and you keep this illusion ´real´ by feeling it.

To undo that mistake, first, you acknowledge what you feel. Second, you perceive your reaction to it as ´it is what it is.´ That reveals your response is not singular but twofold. Third, you do not focus on the two elements of your reaction but go with their interaction. By doing that, you are in the duality flow, where you feel so complete that, eventually, you forget to define yourself by duality. Read more about that in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

You must play the game of duality to have it undone [draft]

It is not only Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings that talk about the body being used to hide repressed emotions. In Bioenergetics (see Wikipedia about that), it is the theory that you store negative experiences in the body, which, therefore, is altered. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings says that this may seem so, but physiology and psychology do not mix, so the connection is thought up (see hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues). The way to undo this imagination, and thus issues believed to be psychosomatic, is to follow the duality flow described in this article or elsewhere in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

This is a continiution of of The togetherness of twofoldness undoes the separateness of specialness. Thus it is about the perception ´it is what it is,´ that reveals the duality flow. It is so vitalising that you, eventually, forget to define yourself as someone in a world of duality.

As everything is twofold in a world of duality, a singular impression, for example falling in love, is fake. Thus you feel disconnected when you hold onto a feeling of falling in love. No worries, this is easily corrected. First, you perceive your fixed impression as ´it is what it is.´ Then, in a state of expectation calling for nothing specific, your special feeling turns inside out and unveils its counterpart inside it. In this case, love gently opens and out of it comes hatred. But just like breathing in and out does not happen simultaneously, love and hate are not felt at the same time.

Since the love you feel is defined by hate, and it is determined by love, you see there is no true love without hatred and vice versa. Should you, out of habit, suppress hate so you can hold onto a specific memory of love, you feel disconnected until you remember that to feel connected, love and hatred must be coupled.

If you physically and/or mentally have pumped up your appearance, the way to set yourself free from the stiffness in your body used to maintain your magnified image, is to perceive your reaction to your rigid body as ´it is what it is.´ This reveals your response is twofold. Hence there is not a particular response to uphold the inflexibility of the body. And since it also reveals that being special is coupled with a sense of nothingness, you cannot help but laugh.

You may not observe that love turns into its counterpart hate, just like you may not notice breathing in is repaced by breathing out. Yet it happens anyway. In other words, you probably need time to acknowledge the constant movement between the opposing poles of duality – in this case, love and hate. And you most likely need more time before you sense the duality flow, that, like rolling waves without highs and lows, moves throughout your body (read more about that here). Nevertheless, since the perception ´it is what it is´ syncs you with the duality, you immediately feel connected.

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

But this perception does not make you feel connected if you assume your response to an experience is the same as the experience. For example, when you see a picture of your hometown and mistake your nostalgic reaction to your past for the image, you will use the perception ´it is what it is´ to hide this mix-up, so nostalgia is not your reaction but what the image is. In other words, you use the perception ´it is what it is´ to suppress your sentimental response, so you can appear cool. But nothing is middle-of-road. Everything is two-fold in a world of duality. Therefore, since your perceived neutrality distorts duality, you feel incomplete.

To hide this, you always avoid situations that could initiate concealed emotions of shortcomings. If, despite that, a repressed sense of failing manages to enter your consciousness, you quickly rise above it by meditating, drinking, shopping, or working a lot. Another way is to blame somebody for making you feel imperfect or hide this feeling in a psychosomatic disorder like vertigo. Read about dizziness in ´What if…?´ versus ´it is what it is´.

When you are willing to accept that everything is coupled with its counterpart in a world of duality, sadness is naturally complemented with gladness, whereafter it automatically is replaced by another polarity. This interplay of opposites is what makes you feel complete when you appear to be in a world of duality.

You are better off, though, if you do not prevent suppressed feelings from popping up. This is because everything comes in pairs of opposites in a world of duality, so if feeling sad is not covered up, it paves the way for gladness. And since you are in a world of duality, the experience of twofoldness makes you feel complete, whereas the experience of singularity makes you feel incomplete.

It is like taking a ride on a rollercoaster. If you only go up or down, the trip is disappointing, whereas going both ways is thrilling. In other words, when you accept the constant interaction between up and down, you laugh when you feel on top because you are not afraid of falling down. And you cry when you feel low without being fearful of being stuck there. Thus you have a splendid time in a world of duality regardless of feeling up or down.

Contrasts are the way of duality. So if something is interpreted as beautiful, you got to see the ugliness in it as well. Going with this polarity, you feel complete. But if you try to correct or remove the ugliness to uphold a particular view of beauty, you feel incomplete. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To resume, it is not your experience of something that you perceive as ´it is what it is´ to feel the completeness of twofoldness. Instead, it is the specific response you determine your experience entails. So if you decide your reaction to having been rejected is sadness, you perceive that as ´it is what it is.´ This reveals your response is not one-sided but twofold. Thus sadness does not settle into definite grief but gently opens up and shows it has gladness inside it.

In other words, when the definitive meaning you have assigned to a response is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ it is complemented by its opposite. Hence your reaction does not entail loneliness but togetherness. This twofoldness occurs as automatic as breathing in is followed by breathing out – and it feels as satisfying. Accepting this polarity, it is soon replaced by another. And since you, therefore, are in the duality flow, you feel satisfied.

The perception ´it is what it is´ does not set you free from sadness, for example, but free to experience it paired with gladness. In other words, this perception does not make you free from duality but free to enjoy it. Actually, so much that you forget to remember it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But if you did not perceive the definitive meaning you assigned to your response as ´it is what it is,´ you are not in the duality flow. Instead, you are in the story you have made to illustrate you feel sad in the way heartache is supposed to show. However, since that feeling is suppressed by your story, the sadness you put on view is fake.

Therefore, since you ignore the interaction of sadness and gladness, you do not get the satisfaction of the duality flow but the frustration of fabrication. Most tries to cut off this disappointment from their awareness by hiding it behind a physical problem in the chest, for example. So when a psychological problem in the future triggers this hidden frustration, the resulting feeling of unease in the chest is interpreted as a physical issue. Hence the past discontent remains hidden from the awareness. Read more about that in hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

There are, of course, instances where you feel relieved when someone leaves you. If you want to extend that specific feeling, you combine it with a sensitive body part, like the chest. Thereupon you assume any physical sensation in the chest is caused by a psychological feeling, namely the sense of relief. But since this feeling is defined by pain and it has been suppressed to feel specifically relieved, this is not what you sense.

If you have not judged something as inharmonious, you cannot know when you experience harmony. But as most people suppress the inharmonious, they have nothing to define a harmonious experience. Consequently, what they get is an intellectual idea about being in balance.

When you think about your friends´ opinions about what goes on, it seems like a specific emotion is brought to mind. Especially if you spin a story about the feeling that you tell in a severe tone of voice enhanced by body language illustrating this feeling. Women often use this trick to appear as if they feel something distinctive, although their emotions are suppressed. Most men, on the other hand, think it is great having their feelings cut off. Hence they are not distracted by them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What you believe in feeling is an intellectual construction that resembles being relieved, when you put on a sad face and tell others about something unpleasant, whereafter you smile to show you have been freed. Maybe you add a phrase from a song to strengthen the impression of relief. If this conjured image of relaxation convinces others that you are relieved, you believe in genuinely feeling that. However, what you feel is, just like the powers superheroes seem to have, make-believe.

To repeat, when your reaction to something is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ it is not limited to be a single-minded feeling like shyness. Instead, you also get its contrast, confidence, so those contrasting feelings can define each other and, therefore, be genuinely felt.

Being amused by this, you go with the duality flow. Hence the contrast of shyness and confidence soon is replaced by other polarities. You may not catch the names making up those polarities because their interaction makes you feel so complete that you do not care about such details.

What you believe to be, only exist in the impression you imagine to have on the world outside of you. And it only seems real because of what you imagine it does to you.

This, of course, only applies as long as you believe to be someone in a world of duality. In non-duality, it is impossible to be complete because it requires more than one to be something, and oneness is undivided.

 

bottle-up-emotionsHow to suppress feelings?
If you are not already aware, here are a few samples:

  • Talking about what others do or say instead of how that makes you feel.
  • Trying to help others to remove the attention from you and how you feel yuorself.
  • Falling in love hides the self-hatred inside.
  • Talking about metaphysically things instead of acknowledging, what you feel.
  • Being upset about something on behalf of others.
  • Meditating, chanting, praying or doing similar things to fend off what you feel.
  • Finding psychological, or any other kinds of explanation for what you feel.
  • Eating or drinking to suppress ones´ feelings.
  • Trying to prove a factual point to hide what you feel.
  • Following ideas for living in the now, or trying to live by any other totalirian concept.
  • Blaming others and justify your feelings by them.
  • Much planning and control.
  • Constantly looking for new things to buy or change.
  • Trying to always be in a good mood.
  • Working a lot and for instance clean your home, when you are upset.
  • Reading or playing computer games regularly.
  • Having revenge sex.
  • Staging yourself on Facebook – perhaps to get as many likes and followers as possible.
  • Publish photos of your happy and shiny life on Instagram.
  • Quoting others to prove you are right.
  • Keep imagining how to solve things or just making up stories.
  • Sitting with crossed legs, locking the knees by bending them backwards, raising one or both shoulders or pushing them forward.
  • Holding back the breath.
  • Assuming to know what is right and wrong.
  • Concluding this and that.

And how to not suppress your feelings?
In the duality flow feelings become very defined, but only in relation to their counterpart. Therefore, since they are not definitive but relative, you have no specific feelings to suppress.


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


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality. It is a rough draft that will be continuously updated.

CANCELLEX Anger and other feelings

Meditation, the basic & special self

To define something as small, it must be contrasted by something tall. The special self, however, always tries to exclude one side of a contrast. For example, it wants love but not hate and positivity but not negativity. Thus the special self, therefore, excludes hate and negativity from itself by projecting it on others. But as you cannot experience one side of a contrast without the other, you exclude love and positivity when you exclude hate and negativity. So if you perceive to be free from hatred, the love you believe to experience is fake. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The function of the brain is to create entertaining thoughts for the self that it has fabricated. Therefore, if thoughts do not seem to please but frustrate the self, its consciousness most likely perceives the flow of them so it appears to comply with theoretical concepts of capitalism, socialism, spiritualism or another ism meant to make the self feel there is something better than the natural flow of thoughts from the brain.

But since this perception is founded on a particular belief system, it is restricted by its concepts. And since self-discipline does not make you feel delighted but sad, you neither get the fulfilment your belief system promises to deliver. Instead, you get stress and confusion – especially because the thoughts you have compiled to keep your perception in line with your belief system do not like your manipulation. Hence, they move faster and faster to escape your domination.

No worries, if you do not try to stop this restless energy, it automatically ignites a take-off into the empty breath, where the slate is wiped clean for all misperceptions. Read more about that in hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone. Hence, only one perception left, namely the one that makes you happy because it is in sync with the experiences the brain produces of a world outside of you. Fortunately, you do not have to compose it yourself. The brain does that automatically when you do not interfere with it. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self likes to believe that manipulating thoughts into visualising something specific makes it happen. This idea makes it appear to be in control of its life.

But it is like thinking the TV show you turn on by hitting the remote control is made by you. Somebody else has made the show, and the only thing you can change is your perception of it. This is also how the basic self has been transformed into a special self, namely by perceiving the basic self so that it seems to have become an independent being in charge of its own life.

But the special self needs constant approval from others to feel this is so. To get that, it often establishes a family, which can be manipulated into giving it the confirmation it needs. If that does not work as intended, the special self may pay money to a psychologist who will ratify its uniqueness. Still, it does not realise how dependent it is on those supporting its perception of being independent.

Having established itself as someone in charge of its own life, the special self needs to meditate or something else that seems to make it able to control thoughts to fool itself into believing that thoughts are not produced by the brain but itself. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since the basic self is relative to the experiences created by the brain (read more about that here), it is not someone definitive. Thus the inexact flow of thoughts coming from the brain seems natural. But the special self thinks it does not make sense because it wants to be someone definitive.

To distance itself from the brain, it composes a perception in which the basic self seems to have been transformed into a being independent of the brain. However, this twisted perception calls for more thoughts than those few the brain has available to make a perception aligned with the basic self. Thus, the special self meditates to generate more thoughts.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Those who perceive themselves as unique beings with the power to do things in their own way and pace need many thoughts to justify this twisted perception. However, the movement of all these thoughts soon becomes so hectic that they try to slow them down via meditation.

That is the official reason. But as anybody who has meditated knows, thoughts multiply when trying to control them. And that is the real reason for meditating because many thoughts are needed to construct an appearance of being unique.

 ∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self does not feel disturbed by the flow of thoughts that come from the brain. On the contrary, it loves this quiet flow because it makes it able to serve the brain in a laid-back way. But the special self who want to be the master of the brain feels troubled by thoughts. However, the thoughts from the brain are few.

The frantic flow of thoughts, the special self experiences, has been generated by itself. It has multiplied the simple flow, the brain develops to maintain a basic itself into a large group of thoughts from where it can compose a perception of itself as an independent. Read more about that here. Then, when it needs a break from the multitudes of thoughts, it looks for something mind-numbing like alcohol, drugs or a mantra.

Should it really manage to relax, it feels horrified because, without all the special thoughts it has generated, the image of being in control falls apart. Thus there is no self-deception to hide that being someone you are dependent on, the brain, which depends on you to confirm its experiences as real. However, not fighting this interdependence, there is nothing to hide, all the brain´s experiences of you as someone in a capsule of time and space are as unreal as you being someone in a video game. Therefore, appearing to be in a world defined by time and space feels as entertaining as playing a game.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self feels dominated by the natural flow of thoughts coming from the brain. But it is dominated by nothing other than its perception of the flow. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The brain works like nature. Therefore, serving it, you also have fun throwing seeds here and everywhere without worrying about the outcome. But those who believe to be in charge of themselves think much about the result of their actions. They want to get as much as possible for as little as possible (read more about that here). Hence they organise the seeds in straight lines, which results in much profit but no fun. Some solve that by buying things that make them happy, and others try to find something spiritual inside them to feel good. But the way to feel good is to serve the brain because it has created you to do that.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you are scripted by the brain to feel sexual lust, you will feel horny no matter what you do. However, you will not enjoy your passion if you try to suppress it through meditation or tantra sex. Read more about sex here.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you perceive yourself to be detached from the experiences you seem to have, you fool yourself because you need them to prove this.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you try to solve absent-mindedness by mindfulness meditation or grounding exercises, you make it worse because you do not know how to take care of yourself. Only your maker knows that. And since it is the brain, the solution, in the context of believing to be someone, is to be aligned with the stream of thoughts coming from the brain instead of using meditation to distance yourself from the stream of thoughts.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Mindfulness is for those who cannot help exploiting others – just like in ancient times, meditation was introduced to the barbarians seeking shelter in Ashrams, so they could learn to control themselves and not abuse others.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self enjoys being aware of itself as someone substantial by continually perceiving the experiences the brain produces as tangible. However, if it twists its perception of these experiences, so they seem to be spiritual, for example, they are not perceived as they are but how the self thinks they should be. Consequently, the self disassociates itself from the brain and thus itself, since what and where it appears to be is a product of the brain.

In other words, the self´s perceived independence of the brain is a disassociation from itself. And every act that the self perceives to do in its own way and pace deepens the alienation. That is why meditating to become purer, higher or whatnot enhances the feeling of remoteness instead of closeness. Thus you do not get the joy of appearing to be someone substantial in a tangible world, nor do you get around to undo the belief that being definable is real because that is suppressed by the imagination of being spiritual.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self needs alcohol, drugs, meditation or something else mind-numbing to escape the fear of repercussion that its control entails. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since it is impossible to alter the stream of thoughts that the brain produces to uphold the basic self it has created, the consciousness that the brain has installed in it make a perception of the stream that establishes itself as the maker of it. Then, like a god, it says, »This is my creation.« And Bam! The world, as it perceives it, appears to manifest. Next, it says, »I am an independent being.´ And Bam! The perception is ratified as a fact.

Third, it builds a character with a few flaws, so it always has something to improve through meditation, Tai Chi or something else that makes it seem to be in control and thus able to be and have something specific. This makes it feel unique but not satisfied because it is all on its own.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The sun seems to go up and down regardless of what you think. Likewise, you go up and down no matter what you think. You only hang onto some thoughts, such as »I better do this now,« to appear as if in control. If you do not desire to be in charge you would not do this. Consequently, you have no need to get rid of thoughts through meditation and whatnot.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self has no need to relax or transform itself through meditation, yoga, fitness and whatnot. On the contrary, since its perception is in sync with the stream of thoughts that come from the brain, it is rewarded with shots of happiness. And since this regularly makes it forget to remember being somebody, it knows there is nothing to transform.

On the other hand, the special self never forgets to remember being somebody. It is always on a mission to become more and be part of something greater. But since that never turns out as expected, it settles for following a guru or something else that seems to improve its social status.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you need to relax, you are on a mission to be someone definitive. To achieve that, you make a perception of the stream of thoughts coming from the brain where thoughts perceived as upsetting have been excluded. However, this does not result in peace but fear of the repressed. Not trying to edit the ever-changing flow of thoughts but perceiving it as ´it is what it is,´ you are not someone definitive but relative to the present experience produced by the brain. Thus hating what you dislike feels just as exciting as loving what you like. Hence there is no need to relax.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Nothing appears to be good enough for the special self because it interprets the noise in its head as a voice whispering, ´there must be more.´ This is also the voice it follows when it meditates to find more peace. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The special self always looks for something to fix what it perceives as wrong. But it objects to the solution that would fix everything immediately, namely not perceiving the brain as an enemy but a friend (read more about that here). By doing that, everybody becomes a friend because the experience of somebody is produced by the brain.

Ultimately speaking, the solution is to undo the belief in being someone who experiences something. As this is the end of being anything, the special self avoids it by meditating or something else that seems to confirm it exists.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you perceive the brains basic rendering of you as someone in a capsule of time and space to be a bit boring, the special self sets in by offering you more exotic ways of perceiving it, for example, by coming from the heart (read more about that here), living in the now or having direct experiences.

But since all experiences – no matter where you believe they come from or how they seem to be experienced – are a construction of thoughts (read more about that here) fabricated by the brain, the perception of having such special experiences is nothing but a reconstruction of the thoughts made by the brain.

However, this reconstruction does not work because it is not in tune with the brain´s rendering of you in a capsule of time and space. The experience the brain creates of the present consist of all thoughts popping up now, including those of the past and the future. When in sync with the whole bunch, every moment feels perfect. See hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

But this is not how it feels if you eliminate some of those thoughts so you can adjust to concepts like coming from the heart, living in the now or having direct experiences. This makes you feel disconnected. The same applies when you try to follow a plan.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The self, that the brain has fabricated from nothing (read more about that here) and continuously administer so it appears to be something, feels restricted when it imagines the freedom it could have if not managed by the brain but itself. But the self cannot be changed, only the perception of it. So no matter how you perceive yourself, you are still the same self that the brain has created and managel.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is foolish to think you are someone in a video game just because it seems to make you feel something. Whatever you believe in feeling is based on your interpretation of computer-generated events. In other words, what you feel is made by you. The same applies to what you feel in the world where you believe to read this. If you feel good about it, it is because you choose to interpret it so you feel this way. It is also make-believe if what you read makes you angry. You get this feeling because you have chosen to perceive this article in a way that makes you upset. Thus it is your choice whether you feel good or angry.

It is also your own doing to conclude that a god, higher consciousness or whatnot is making the world where you believe to be. There is neither god nor you, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

Enlightenment of that which is one and the fear of it

Why do the oranges fall down from the trees outside the house of Alexius every November? The answer is simple, it is the season for that. Likewise, it seems to be the season for Alexius to write an article about bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one and the fear it may involve.

Enlightenment of that which is one is not of a world where there seems to be more than one
The enlightenment of that which is one does not result in some kind of spiritual understanding or connection with a higher being. Actually, it results in nothing, because it takes more than one to be or have something.

As it also takes more than one to return to that which is one, there is no help to get from it. Besides, it does not know that you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. It is not possible, because that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one. But it is possible to imagine being someone specific in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Most books or lectures about the enlightenment of that which is one are based on speculations of how to exclude what is judged as bad in order become full of light and joy. But to exclude is to separate and therefore an enhancement of the belief in being someone definitive – and nothing definable can enter the enlightenment of that which is one .

The enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to taking a ride in a fairground carousel so fast, that the mind has to give up seeing any differences at all. Consequently it is not possible to remain as someone definitive and so there is therefore nobody to experience the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to taking a ride in a fairground carousel moving so fast, that the brain has to give up making experiences of differences. Consequently, it is not possible to remain as someone definitive, and so there is nobody to experience the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one undoes this imagination. Yet it is not an experience, neither a state of mind or some kind of being or consciousness, as it takes more than one to experience or be something. It can be compared to taking a ride in a fairground carousel moving so fast that the mind has to give up producing an ´I´ that is experiencing it.

Well, there is no mind at all in the enlightenment of that which is one. There is just one bright light. Not a light though that lightens up anything, as that would require more than one. For the same reason, there is no memory at all of a world where there seems to be more than one.

All articles in this blog arecolored by my personality.

In other words, the imagination of being someone definitive is wiped out by the enlightenment of that which is one, so there is nobody left to experience bliss or anything else. Therefore, what he is about to tell is not based on his experience of the enlightenment of that which is one, but vague memories of it.

His memories may seem to imply, the enlightenment of that which is one is a sequence of events happening in linear time, but that is only because one perpetual present cannot be described in a world of linear time. And even though it is described as it ´happened´ many years ago, in non-linear time, it is still ´happening´. In other words, his description might be a mix of several ´excursions´ from linear time into one perpetual present.

An early morning, when he was 22 years old, he bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one after having intensely worked as a taxi driver for about 15 hours. Somehow the sum of the images from driving around the streets continually looking for customers turned the world into something less definable and more blurry. As he had no energy left to establish a focused world, he was sucked into by a spiralling show of psychedelic light, that did not seem to come from anywhere.

All info of someone definitive is extracted by either the light, sound, feeling or taste of the enlightenment of that which is one, so that there is nobody to be sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one, where there is neither chaos or order, as that would require more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

All info of someone definitive is extracted by either the light, sound, feeling or taste of the enlightenment of that which is one, so that there is nobody to be sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one, where there is neither chaos or order, as that requires more than one. Most though try to avoid loosing their identity by identifying the black hole as something definitive, so that they remain someone definitive as well and cannot be sucked into the formlessness of that which is one. If so they are not bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, but just having glimpses** of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one is to be compared to the fusion of all lights, or sounds, or emotions, or tastes – depending on our preference as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

None of these fusions are the formlessness of that which is one. They are merely tools for attracting you to the extent, that you do not fight it, when all the thoughts collected to fabricate your personality are extracted by it, so that there is not something definable to be sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one.

This article is about the first time the belief in being someone definitive momentarily was undone for Alexius, so the enlightenment of that which is one was bid welcome. It is the most known aspect* of it, namely light, that was bid welcome. Later its other aspects* – sound, emotion and taste –was also bid welcome. Not as a mix though  but one by one. It is not possible to mix something in the enlightenment of that which is one, as that requires more than one.

I assume it is not necessary to bid welcome all the aspects* of the enlightenment of that which is one, but that one of them is sufficient in regard to completely forget the imagination of a world where there seems tl be more than one.

Suddenly a black spot with no fixed location, nor a fixed form, looking like a horse head or an embryo showed up. And then a completely colourless light – brighter than the coloured light outside the black spot – started to show as a ring outside the edges of the black spot, that must have been a hole, as colourless light exploded out of it.

This light took over everything, as it was everywhere and yet nowhere. And just like that extracted the concept of Alexius and a world where there seems to be more than one and left it at the edge of the black hole, so the nothingness of him gracefully was falling through it into the formlessness of that which is one. If it was falling or floating he cannot recall because everything happened simultaneously, but there is a sense of forever falling while at the time floating in a space that was not there – and then in the exact same moment as forever falling there was nothing.

That is all folks. There is no more to tell. At this point, the enlightenment of that which is one is over, and there is nothing but the formlessness of that which is one, as it is called in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. It is not a big void of nothing filled with exotic ideas of unconditional love and whatnot. On the contrary. It is not filled with anything since that requires more than one

There is nothing to disturb you in that which is one, because there is no more than one. It is so simple compared to the peace fabricated in a world where there seems to be more than one, as that is always based on having to exclude something disturbing.

Thus it is neither peaceful or anything else. Metaphorically speaking the speed of it is so fast that it is not possible to differentiate anything. The conception of separation is not possible, so there is not something to see, nor anyone to see this. That is why stillness is not needed. Fortunately, because it is incredibly noisy – and then again all the noise is so loud, that it merges into one sound, all lights into one light, all emotions into one feeling and all tastes into one taste, that last no time.

This is not to be understood as the enlightenment of that which is a mix of light, sound, emotion and taste. These are four aspects* of it, but you only bid one of them welcome at a time. It does not matter which one of them. They all have the same purpose. Namely to attract you to such an extent, that you cannot help but let them extract all thoughts making it appear as if you are someone definitive and leave them at the edge of a black hole so that there is nothing definable to be sucked through it into the formlessness of that which is one.

It is, of course, a metaphor to say, oneness is on the other side of a black hole, as it is formless and therefore without end, inside or outside – also without size.

Dunno if there is a spiral around the black hole of the enlightenment of that which is one, because being that close nothing seems to differ from each other. Yet for a moment so short, that it is not conceivable, a light inside the edge of the black hole so much brighter that the very bright light around it, suddenly explodes into a formless light that does not include Alexius but the formlessness of that which I am. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

I seem to remember a spiral around a black hole in the enlightenment of that which is one. I do not remember it exactly as in this image – either because everything was moving so fast or I was so close that nothing seemed to differ from each other. Yet for a moment so short, that it is not conceivable, a light inside the edge of the black hole – so much brighter than the very bright light around it – suddenly like thousands of atomic bombs exploded into a formless light that erased anything definable, so what ´happened´ after being sucked by this light through a black hole I cannot tell, neither can I find any image on the web that can illustrate the vague memories of the nothingness of everything. Fortunately, you can go there yourself – or rather stop going anywhere. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one is unexplainable
When the belief in being Alexius momentarily was undone, and the enlightenment of that which is one was bid welcome, he had never seen a black hole before (and fortunately he did not see it in the enlightenment of that which is one, as otherwise, he would have bounced back to a world defined by time and space), so the description of the entrance to that which is one as a black hole is made in retrospect. And calling it an entrance is a metaphor because there is neither an entrance nor an exit to that which is endless.

Actually, it was not before much later, when he saw pictures of black holes from far out in the universe, that he sensed how familiar they were – much more than appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be explained in a world, as it takes more than one to explain something

Describing the enlightenment of that which is one in a world, where there seems to be more than one, is not possible, because even though so much is happening nothing is happening because it is one perpetual present.

To bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, you, of course, do not have to drive a taxi all night or be in ´a deep sleep´ like Buddha supposedly described it. Whatever way you lose focus or stop defining and labelling will do in regard to bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. Meditation though may work against this because many use it to concentrate and focus in an attempt to achieve something specific – and anything definable fence of the enlightenment of that which is one.

The return from that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one
How come Alexius returned to a world where there seems to be more than one after the enlightenment of that which is one? According to legend Buddha returned out of compassion for others. If this is the case for Alexius, he is not aware of it. But why should he return out of compassion for others, when there is no more than that which is one.

You must come emptyhanded.

Jesus, who also seemed to return, said that going to heaven – assuming that by going there meant to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one – is more difficult than for a camel to go through an eye of a needle. And in ancient scriptures of India, it is often said that you have to come empty-handed.

It seems that a person momentarily can forget to uphold the belief in being someone definitive so that there is not something definable to go through the eye of a needle into the enlightenment of that which is one – but it also seems, this eye of a needle is just big enough for a slight leftover of the belief in being someone definitive to pass through, and that this little piece will fear being entirely annihilated by the formlessness of that which is one.

To defend itself against this, it hangs onto anything that it can define as something, and by doing so you are back as someone definitive in a world limited by time and space, where things happen at such a slow speed, that there is plenty of time to realise, there is nothing to fear if you do not believe to be someone definitive, as then there is nothing to annihilate.

We cannot know how come, Buddha and Jesus returned to a world where there seems to be more than one in order to appear as if they were somebody specific there, but from also having returned Alexius knows there is nobody to help in such a world and nothing to heal but the sick belief, that something appearing to be definable can block out the formlessness of oneness.

Maybe he wanted to be reestablished as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, so he could escape what was perceived to be a relentless power taking away his free will and totally wipe out what he believed to be, which is also true as seen from the point of believing to be someone definitive. But if you do not uphold this belief, there is no free will to take away or anybody conceivable to wipe out – and therefore nothing to fear.

Seen from the perspective of that which is one, which is only possible metaphorically speaking as it takes more than one to see something, nothing is taken away or wiped out, because there is no more than that which is one.

Fearing something as if it is outside of yourself is only possible, because you believe to be and have more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Fearing something, as if it is outside of yourself, is only possible because you believe to be and have more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Without the belief in being someone, there is no annihilation to fear
Fear of annihilation, as talked about in the above, is often related to an authority problem. In the case of Alexius, he perceived his father and later other authority figures as somebody determined to take away his free will and incorporate him like a satellite in their world.

If such a perception is correct or not is not the matter. Freedom is only a problem if you have chosen to believe that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Without this belief, there is no more than that which is one, and therefore nothing to take away anything.

It is not possible though to completely stop believing that you are someone definitive while appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one because otherwise, it would not appear to be there. It is also not possible to solve all unsolved issues with others, as being someone specific is based upon having those problems.

But it is possible to realise, that problems are simply something you pretend to have in order to appear as someone definitive, so when the enlightenment of that which is one exposes them, there is no reason to take the fear of being annihilated by an omnipresent power serious, because the problems are not yours but something you pretend to have.

Another straightforward way to undo the belief in being someone specific is to see everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as a symbol of that which is one. When you as a person in the world is nothing but a symbol, it is not fearful when this symbol is erased by the enlightenment of that which is one, so only that which it symbolises is left. You can read more about this in hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.

To see that being someone definitive is nothing but make-believe, you must first acknowledge, that you think, you know what and where you are – and that you therefore are mistaken.

The fastest way to undo the belief in being someone at all is to realise that you do not know what and where you are. When there is not someone to be conscious about someone definitive, there is nothing to lose or let go of.

The above ways of undoing the belief in being someone definitive does not require enlightenment. It definitely helps, but the despair of appearing to be someone in a capsule of time and space is just as good a prerequisite.

A season for everything
That there is a way to undo the belief in being someone definitive, may be an obstacle in itself, because ultimately speaking there is nothing to undo and nobody to return to the formlessness of oneness, as there is no more than that which is one. So maybe Alexius just appeared to return from the enlightenment of that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one because it was the season for such imagination. And maybe one day it is the season imagination is over so that there is no imagination to hide the unimaginable, namely that which is one. Do not know, and it does not really matter, because there is no more than that which is one, regardless of seasons or whatever else imagined that requires more than one.

*) The article is about the most known aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one, namely light. Whatever aspect that comes to you when you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one depends on your preferences as someone definitive. If you, for example, are very visual, light is what comes to extract all definable traits of yours, so there is not something to be sucked through a black hole into that which is one. You can read about the other aspects in the article Last night I died again from the world and in the articles in the below list.

NOTES: 

  • This article about the enlightenment of that which is one and the fear of it shall in no way be taken as Alexius´ thoughts about the truth, or conclusions he has made based on experiences, readings or lectures. He does not thrust experiences and hardly ever read books or attend conferences, but most of all, he cannot think! In other words, this article does not consist of his thoughts, but those that passed by one day a long time ago. That is all.
  • This article is part of hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one.

What is not one is fake

Seeing is believing, they say, but it is actually the other way around. It is what you believe that you see. Hence you do not see anything if you do not believe something. And not seeing anything, that which cannot be seen, namely the formlessness of oneness, does not appear to be hidden by something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1
The woman who you see is not here. She cannot be in the electronic media where you are seeing. Her appearance is a simulation made from zeros and ones in a combination that cannot be experienced as something until an app on your electronic media processes it into frequencies that trigger the brain to produce an experience of a woman who seems to be someone in the world where you believe to be.

That world, however, has never been created because there is no more than that which is one and it requires more than one to create something. Thus the world you see is make-believe and so is whatever you assume to make this belief because it takes more than one to make something.

The brain claims that the reason you experience to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than that one is that it receives signals from your sensory system that add up to you being someone in such a world. But it is just a story to cover up that you and the world where you believe to be is a fantasy made from out of nothing with nothing in it.

You only see the world where you believe to be because the brain continually processes frequencies of nothing into something that mimics you as someone having a conscious experience of being amongst others, whether that seems to be in a physical or spiritual world. Read more about that in hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

When you start to believe you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one instead of pretending to be there, it is not about enjoying but surviving. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But knowing that what and where you appear to be is make-believe, you feel happy to experience it, contrary to the feeling of doom that comes from believing the experience is real.

The AI that has proofread this article can only see what it has in its source code. And since there is nothing but numbers, it cannot realise who it is. The same applies to humans, except in their source code is a construction of thoughts which they can realise are nothing. This is very blissful because in the absence of something there are no problems.

The latter most try to solve by relying on the collectively agreed concept of how to be someone definitive and disown everything that appears to contradict it. Hence they distance themselves from the solution to not feeling bad, which is to undo the belief in being someone definitive, as that leaves nothing but the bliss of emptiness.

To make this leap into the unknown, you must forget, what are where you believe to be. This can be accomplished by seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one (read hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life). It can also be accomplished by pretending to be someone in such a world, because what and where you pretend to be you are not (read hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation).

Alternatively, you can choose to have the empty breath doing it for you (see hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone). Or you can be inclusive instead of exclusive, as that cancels out the apparent differences in your experiences, wherefore the basis for the belief in being someone definitive is gone (see hack #3.2 Life is inclusive and not exclusive).

You can also apply one or more of the other duality hacks, as they all cause a state of not-knowing in which there is nobody to believe you are somebody (read more about that in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one).

As it requires more than one to have a problem, all problems are solved by taking a leap into that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The brain though falls into a coma if you for more than 20 minutes, 45 minutes at most, do not have an ongoing internal conversation with it, as if you are someone in a world where there seem to be more than one. In other words, you cannot remain in a state of not-knowing. See hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

But the brain is not needed for the enlightenment of that which is oneOn the contrary, so when it falls into a coma a light brighter than anything else very quickly and abruptly strips away everything left of what you believe to be and have, so there is no awareness of ever having believed to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. 

Nor is there any awareness of being in that which is one, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless – see hack #6.1 The enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

If you do not want, the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, to be put to an end so abruptly but would like to enjoy it while having it undone, you can choose to return from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive. And then go back and forth between being conscious and in a state of not-knowing until you cannot help but bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

By sending love to somebody you insist, that the other one is a separated entity defined by time and space. To care for others is a disservice, as this confirms both them and you as separated. If you on the other hand shares, that which is common for everyone, namely that which is life, the difference you experience between you and the other does not make a difference.

PART 2
Direct experience seems to be popular among those, who consider themselves to be spiritual. In the context of spirituality, it is a contradiction though. Spirit is one and it takes two to experience, no matter if you perceive the experience to be direct or not.

To judge one way of experiencing to be more direct than another is no different from the common search for more love, money, power, authenticity, spirituality and whatnot. The idea that there is more to have or be is the foundation of the world, and the reason you are separated from that which is spirit. You want more than that which is.

To perceive one experience as a more direct than another one is not to be closer to the experienced but to make a further separation. It is like everything else an idea made up in the brain and it implies something in the world is better than other things from a spiritual point of view. But spiritually speaking there are no differences in the world, and the attempt to make something seem more spiritual than other things or some experiences more direct than others is nothing but an attempt to emphasize yourself on the expense of others by having or being more than them.

The idea of being more spiritual is a way to distance yourself from others to be better than them, as you feel they separate you from them, because you are not good enough.

In other words, claiming to have a direct experience has nothing to do with being more spiritual. You are either spiritual or not. The need to be more spiritual has nothing to do with spirituality because it knows not of more. Such a need is only there if you are confused, and you are bound to be when you believe all of the gibberish mainstream concepts, that are labelled as spirituality.

There is no way to go, but to go that way, you must drop all concepts so you are free to follow.

There is no way to go, but to go that way, you must drop all concepts so you are free to follow. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It is concepts made of people, who are not afraid of dying but living in the world of time and space as it is, and therefore space out in ideas that seem to transcend them beyond the capsule of time and space. But these people are not transcending anything, whether they call it astral planes and whatnot. You can compare it to having a dream, where you appear to transcend it, but nothing has changed. You are still dreaming.

There is no way out of a dream because you are not there. And there is no way beyond or out of the world because you are not a person in a definable world. It is not possible. You are one, and there is no oneness in the world of time and space.

What you can do though, while you seem to be living in a capsule of time and space is to smile of the silly world, where only that which is definable is real contrary to the reality of oneness, where nothing that can be seen or imagined existWhat a silly idea to try to be detached from something, that does not exist. What a silly idea to think, you can observe, what is not there. What a silly idea to think, there is something to learn from an illusion.

And what a silly idea, that you are on some kind of journey going home. You are at home and nowhere else. If you put your hands in front of your eyes, you cannot see this article, but it is still there. Nothing has happened, except that you have blinded yourself.

To give or send love and compassion to somebody, you judge is in need of that, is not very lovingly or compassionate, because it implies, you have more than others – and that is not possible. Yet it seems possible to experience this difference in the world of duality, so by giving love or compassion you uphold the idea of duality.

In other words you enhance the prison, the world seems to be, instead of sharing the only thing every person has, namely that which makes it possible for them to appear, which would free them from the illusion, that something is missing, because that which is one is everything.

You have blinded yourself with experiences, and whether you consider them to be direct or whatnot, is all the same. Any experience is deceitful. That which is you cannot be experienced or observed. You are one, and unless you imagine one to be separated in two it cannot be experienced or observed. You have blinded yourself with ideas of separation. Yet nothing has changed. That which is one cannot be separated. You are still one, and if you forget about the eyes, and what they seem to be able to see, you will not be blinded, and so you have no need to see because you are that which is.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #5.1 Eyes cannot see.

You are not here because what you believe to be is a ghostly image of nothing

This image and this article may be fragments of a superhologram. If so they are basically not different from other fragments in the world.

What if this image and article are fragments of a superhologram? Wise people like to ask a question like that because it seems to imply they are part of something greater and not just a figment of nothingness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1
As that which is one is formless and therefore endless, it is not possible to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, nor is it possible to be anywhere else, as it takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. In other words, what and where you believe to be is not there. According to the brain, however, it receives frequencies from a sensory system, that confirm us to be somebody substantial in a tangible world where there seems to be more than one.

But since there is no more than that which is one, this experience produced by the brain of a tangible world with us as substantial beings is a deception – including the story of the big bang. Also, the recent findings of science that seems to suggest that as our visual system is sensitive to sound frequencies, and our sense of smell in part is dependent on what is called cosmic frequencies. The cells in our bodies are sensitive to a broad range of frequencies, we are a portion of a holographic domain of consciousness and thus part of something greater.

It is more to the point when aspects of Pribram’s holographic model of the brain is put together with Bohm’s theory. For if the concreteness of the world is but a secondary reality and what seems to be ´there´ actually is a holographic blur of frequencies, and if the brain also is a hologram and only selects some of the frequencies out of this blur and mathematically transforms them into sensory perceptions, what becomes of objective reality?

Put quite simply, everything experienced is an illusion. We are ´receivers´ that seem to float through a kaleidoscopic sea of frequencies, that literally speaking is non-existing. Yet a physical world in 3D appears to be rendered from this nothingness that we as receivers choose to experience as real, and doing so we affirm ourselves to be authentic as well.

Yet the experience of a physical world is only one out of many, it could also be an astral world that one seems to extract from the sea of nothingness and project ghostly images into it via its simulated superhologram, so nothing appears to be something.

To resume, the whole world – whether it seems physical or spiritual – is a fantasy made to fool you into believing, you are a physical being with a sensory system, that receives frequencies from a world outside of you and thus ratifies you to be someone substantial in a tangible world. Read more about that here.

That somebody is making this fantasy is also a fantasy. It is wishful thinking by those who want to be ratified as a conscious being. Just like nobody makes a dream, nobody makes the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one – and nobody is in it.

INTERLUDE:
The so-called fact that the brain bases the experiences it produces on the info it receives from our sensory system is part of the story it composes to make us believe, we have these experiences that seem to confirm we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one. For those who see through this, the brain has another story, namely that although any experience is made from out of nothing, someone is conscious about this illusion of something.

The brain likes are proud of this story because to be conscious of something, there must be more than one, and it is all about hiding, there is no more than that which is one. And also that consciousness is just another a deception of the brain, meant to confirm itself and its creations as real.

Nor science, religions or anything else has been able to explain the existence of the universe. The reason for that is very simple, it does not exist.

This explanation is, of course, a load of guff, because it takes more than one to explain something, and there is no more than one since it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, if our appearance as somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one were explainable, the brain and its fantasy of the of us as separated beings in such a world would be real, and oneness unreal.

PART 2
In the dark of the night, it seems Alexius
catches a glimpse of one of his cats. He decides it must be his black cat, who can be a bit of a bully. But then its movement reminds him of another cat of his cats, that is especially dear to him. And so he changes the interpretation of what he ´sees´ in the darkness. That is how we ´see´ the world. It is a construction of thoughts.

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

Every day there are millions of persons flying from one place to another on planet Earth. Tomorrow a friend of his is flying from one place to the place where Alexius appears to be. That is at least the way he imagines it must be because that is the way, it is defined, how you get from where he appears to be to where I appear to be. This is a special moment for him: He is flying, but all the rest of the persons flying do not enter my mind. They mean nothing to him. This way, my personality is constructed.

If you really want to know that which is you, the fabrication of a personality is not to be a problem, though. You just devote yourself unconditionally to every building step of the personality. And in devotion, the steps and what they lead to disappears as something to be defined by time and space.

The world of duality is an illusion, that can be compared to building a sandcastle on the beach. There is no real castle there. Nothing needs to be fixed or changed.

Everything is fine – at least as long as you do not believe, that you are in a real sandcastle! If that is your belief, there is a mistake to correct. The first step is to acknowledge, that to experience a world with you as a person in it is a misconception. In other words: You do not know what and where you are!

PART 3
When Alexius organized the files in folders on his first computer, he thought he would never run out of space. He also imagined his files were organized in layers with the ones in top folders on top of the ones in the bottom folder, which he imagined to be deep under.

Nowadays, he knows better. There is no hierarchy among the files, none of them is on the top or buried deep under others. It is make-believe because on the hard disk of the computer there are no levels. The hard disk is flat, and all the files and folders are non-dimensional. Actually, there are no files and folders.

The idea of a soulmate is a typical illusion of the world of duality, where the brain is tricked into believing, that everything is differentiated by time and space. In reality there is no distance to a soulmate. Well actually there is no soulmate, that is an idea founded on separation, and in reality nothing is separated. Reality is one

It is all code, and the code for one file might be spread all over the hard disk. None of the things I seem to experience on my screen is nothing but zeros and ones added together in an order that tricks my brain into thinking the simulated world of the computer is real.

You can compare the world of duality to a simulated world on a computer. Non-duality, which is formless, does not contain the differences of the world, that everybody seems to experience. It is a trick. In reality, there is no time, everything is happening simultaneously in one perpetual present – and everything is as close as can be because there is no space to define anything. In other words, there are no differences. There is only that which is.

As there is nothing else than that which is life, there is nothing outside, and as that which is life is one and one only there is nothing to experience – except if you go outside of that which is one, where there is nothing unless you imagine a world, where everything has a contrast. In other words. the word of duality.

As there is nothing else than that which is life, there is nothing outside, and as that which is life is one and one only there is nothing to experience – except if you go outside of that which is one, where there is nothing unless you imagine a world, where everything has a contrast. In other words, the world of duality.

PART 4
When people are talking about coming from the heart or feeling love, they are actually talking about a semi-euphoric, temporary chemical reaction, that occurs when the brain receives certain signals from the body. The brain, which is nothing but a labyrinth of fat and synapses passing electrical signals from cell to cell, have processed everything you seem to experience – including meditative states, which are measurable electric impulses and nothing more.

In other words, the experience of higher states, love – pure or not – and that something is coming from the heart is fabricated by the brain and is in no way more magic than any other experience – unless you have conditioned the brain to tell you so.

An atom consists of 99.999999999999% empty space. It does not have enough molecules to hold this empty space together as something that appears as an opaque form, but because molecules are moving fast from atom to atom, they manage to appear as an opaque form, that you believe you cannot walk through. Yet it is still 99.999999999999% empty space … and out of that you imagine a world full of things that only appears to be real due to the way ´they´ are processed in the brain, which also is non existing – just like nothing in a dream is ´there´.

To feel the love inside is just another illusion fabricated by the brain. The feeling of love appears to be in the body, and as such, it is not inside. Everything in the world is composed of surfaces, that can be defined by time and space and what seems to be inside is part of a surface. Just like the inside of a house is part of the house and is composed of similar surfaces as the outside, which are made of atoms compiled in such a way, that you experience them as dimensional and therefore think they have another side, which you interpret as inside.

Ultimately speaking there is nothing outside – no atoms or anything – and without an outside, there is no inside. There is only that which is life, which is everything. Consequently, there cannot be anything outside. That which is life is non-duality, but as the world is dual it can only appear outside of non-duality, where there is nothing, so to make a world, where there is nothing, you create ideas like inside and outside – any idea that is dual will do. And as long as you seem to be in the world of duality, you must use concepts of contrasts for the sake of communication.

You may say, this article is outside of you coming from inside of the electronic media, where you seem to see it, but it is all bullshit. No reason though to replace it with a new interpretation – it is just gonna be another concept full of shit. No matter how you put it, it is all made up. There is nothing outside of that which is life because there is nothing else than that.

  • The above consists of old and new notes that Alexius has compiled. Some of the sentences may partly be from articles written by others about holographic theories. He cannot remember what is what.

When included, annoyance undoes the belief in separation [draft]

If your irritation is not excluded but included in the perception of yourself, the belief in separation falls apart. But, unfortunately, the intimacy that this entails often seems so scary that most prefer to uphold the belief in separation by blaming the world for feeling annoyed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
You cannot avoid irritation when you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one because to uphold this belief, you must always choose between opposites like good and bad. Since this is a confirmation of separation and that which is you is no different from that which is one, it makes you feel disconnected.

When included, annoyance undoes the belief in separation

Irritation is enhanced every time it is justified because blaming somebody or something else for how you feel is only possible when you believe there is more than that which is one, which is the cause of irritation.

To hide this is your own doing, you blame somebody else for having caused it. But as making others bad to make you look good further enhance the belief in separation., you feel more disconnected.

Nevertheless, you keep on hoping that this underlying feeling of discomfort goes away when what you judge as wrong has been made right. Thus you compulsively look for something to make better. But as that boosts the belief in separation, it makes you feel more cut off.

Feelings of frustrations can be compared with a traffic sign saying, you are going the wrong way. This is not to say, that feeling them is wrong. On the contrary. It is justifying them, that is going the wrong way, because by doing that they are excluded instead of included. If included to the extent that you are nothing but what you feel, you are set free, because a feeling cannot survive on its own. It has to be contrasted in order to be felt as something specific, so when there is nothing else than that, you are set free from duality. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Justifying feelings lead the wrong way because that excludes them from you and thus establish separation as real. But if a feeling is included to the extent that you are only that, there is nothing else to define what you are. Therefore, since you cannot be seen as someone who makes a difference, there is no feeling of disconnection – just like the white letters in the above sign only seem disconnected from each other when contrasted by another colour. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

No worries. This feeling is simply a warning sign saying you cannot go down this road because it takes more than one to feel something, and you are that which is one. Therefore, if you do not fend off your feeling of irritation but bid it welcome, it disappears because the warning has been received.

This does not necessarily mean your appearance as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is over, but that the belief in being there is replaced by pretending to be there. And since what you pretend to be, you are not, someday nobody returns that which has never been left, namely that which is one.

Inclusiveness is not about owning your flaws since that confirms the belief in being someone definitive. Nor is it the same as accepting the dark side of the personality because it is to accept exclusion and thus the loneliness of separation. Instead, inclusion leaves nothing to put up with, which is pure bliss.

Including uncomfortable feelings in this way may seem similar to the Jungian idea of integrating the shadow side of the personality. But inclusiveness, as described in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, is not about becoming whole or anything else because being something requires more than one.

However, while you believe to be that, you do not have to hesitate to ask your neighbours to be quiet if they seem disturbing. So, by all means, go ahead and blame them for making you feel upset. And be grateful they have made you aware of how irritating it is to judge them and thus separate them from you.

Your gratefulness will set you free to move forward without excluding your uncomfortable feelings by blaming others for having caused them. Instead, you include your feelings by totally being them. Since that leaves nothing to define you, the belief in separation cannot be upheld. For example, when you are nothing but irritated, there is not something to contrast what you are. Hence you cannot be defined as someone specific.

It is not only the inclusion of irritation, which sets you free from the belief in separation. This applies to any feeling, whether so-called positive or negative, rooted in the past or whatnot. If you go all the way and fully experience a feeling, you will be completely full of it. Hence there is nothing to contrast it, which means it cannot be experienced and therefore return to the nothingness from where it came. Consequently, there is nothing to uphold the belief in separation. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What is said above about uncomfortable feelings also applies to comfortable feelings justified by somebody. When you, for example, assume a feeling of love is caused by your spouse, it has been excluded and not included, so that separation is experienced as real and oneness as false.

To make long short, if you want to have the belief in separation undone, it makes no difference what you seem to feel while believing to be someone definitive. That is if you do not exclude what you feel by justifying it with the world, but include them undiminished and unedited, which is done by being nothing but what you feel.

As it takes more than one to include something, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, inclusiveness is just as illusionary as exclusivness. But contrary to exclusiveness, which enhances the belief in separation, inclusiveness undoes it. However, this does not mean that Alexius´ Duality Hacks transform you into the formlessness of oneness. That is not possible because whatever you believe in being is nothing but empty space.

So instead, Alexius´ Duality Hacks replace the belief in being someone definitive with the belief that you are a symbol of oneness (hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation), or with the belief that what you appear to be is pretence. Since what you pretend to be, you are not, you are not separated (hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life). Or instead of believing that different experiences make a difference, you believe they make no difference, wherefore there is no separation. This new belief you achieve by being inclusive(the hack you are reading).


Without contrasts a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be experienced. So when both sides of contrast, for example light and darkness, are included, there is nothing to experience and thus nothing to hide that which cannot be experienced, namely that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Most believe that they will feel good when something has been made right. However, the problem is not good versus bad, but that you feel disconnected when choosing between more than one because that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it requires more than one to choose.

Though the beliefs accumulated by Alexius´ Duality Hacks are just as illusionary as any other, they undo them all – including those about transformation, soul, divine consciousness, awakening and whatnot. Hence there is no belief to hide that which cannot be realised, namely that which is one. It is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing else. Therefore, since you are already there, you do not need to realise oneness but what you use to hide it.

INTERLUDE:
When you include the bad feelings by being nothing but bad, there is nothing good to contrast them, and without that, the contrast of good and bad is no more. In other words, nothing is bad, neither good. Everything is as it is. That is a state of not-knowing. See the following articles.

That is the way it goes with any other feeling you include. For example, being nothing but sad, there is nothing to contrast it, and so neither sadness nor its contrast happiness appears to exist. As this nothingness momentarily rubs off on the other contrasts making up your personality, there is nobody left to judge the apparent differences of the world to make a difference. This is why everything is alright, as it is in a state of not-knowing.


See the below articles regarding projections and justifications as a way to exclude something so that you can be defined as someone definitive by what you have been banned from yourself.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness.

 

 

PART 2:
To not care about thoughts and feelings is not the same as to observe them. That implies somebody is doing it, wherefore the belief in being someone definitive is enhanced.

Not taking thoughts and feelings seriously is not based on a decision made by somebody, but on nobody believing to be somebody. Therefore, since there is no ´I´ with a need to use thoughts and feelings to promote itself as someone definitive, they have no appeal.

You may find inspiration for ignoring thoughts and feelings in the article Every moment is the perfect moment – also for dying in the rainforest.

There is nothing, that you need to avoid – neither any thought nor feeling, so you do not have to suppress feelings of hatred and whatnot. And there is nothing you specifically need to do in order to undo the belief in being someone definitive but to include everything. And that is not something you do, but that you do not exclude anything. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is unless you start believing, they can help you to fulfil a special dream of for example love, health or wealth, and in your eagerness to make the dream come true by selecting the right thoughts and feelings via the exclusion of the wrong ones, you forget that the price of exclusion is loneliness and that no love, health or wealth can solve that.

Instead, you assume, that it is a matter of getting enough of it, but as long as you operate under the assumption that there is more to be and have, no matter how much more you appear to become or get in a world experienced to be outside of you, it is not enough.

This is not to say, that what you look for is to be found inside. There is nothing but empty space inside as well as outside of what you appear to be. In other words, your appearance in a tangible body is an illusion and so is being healthy and making love or money.

Yet you should not neglect the body, or miss an opportunity for making love or lots of money, when you appear to be someone definitive, because this is your chance to not exclude but include whatever you think and feel about it. And as inclusion undoes separation, there is no inside or outside. Hence there is nothing to hide the formlessness of oneness.

Not caring about thoughts and feelings, which is a state of not-knowinghas like any other state a beginning and therefore also an end.

And like everything else in a world where there seems to be more than one it is completely forgotten, when there is no more need to be and have more than that which is one, since it takes more than one to be in any kind of state.

There is not a definitive way to not care about thoughts and feelings, as that would require them to be used in a specific way and thus boost the belief in being someone special instead of undoing it.

Alexius pretends to be in a world where there seems to be more than one and space. And since where he pretends to be, he is not, he does not believe to be there, nor somewhere else, as it requires more than one to be somewhere, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is why Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not require you to follow a specific set of rules. What you need to follow is not definable and cannot be followed, since it is that which is one and it takes more than one to follow something.

Fortunately, there is no need to follow it, as it is formless and therefore endless so that which is you is the formlessness of oneness. Hence that which is you is not in a world where there seems to be more than one, so no miracle is needed to leave or transcend such a world. It is only the belief, that it is there, which needs to be undone.

As there could not be a non-teacher without a non student and vice versa, they are like two sides of the same coin. In other words, if one side is completely included, the apparent difference between the two sides is cancelled out.

See the below box for a short intro to some ways of undoing the belief in being someone definitive. And check hack #1-3, if you want to read more about them.

You can never leave a world where there seems to be more than one, because that which is you is no different from that which is one, so you are not there. It is all make-believe. This belief, however, will be undone, when there is no need to appear as if you are more than others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since that which is you is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to be somewhere, you cannot be anywhere. In other words it makes no sense to talk about leaving a world where there seems to be more than one, unless you believe, it is possible to be more than that which is one. And if so, it is this belief that needs to be undone.

You can for example pretend to be someone definitive, and as what you pretend to be you are not, the more you pretend it the less you believe to be someone definitive.

Or you can perceive everything you experience in a world where there seems to be more than one as a symbol of that which is one. which means the apparent differences in such a world does not make a difference, and so there is no basis for believing to be someone definitive.

Or as the belief in being someone definitive is founded on exclusion, you can include what has been excluded, so that there is nothing to define you and thus nothing to support the belief in being someone definitive.

As Alexius did not care about his appearance on this selfie, there was no need of using thoughts to construct a specific look of a non-teacher. This does not mean that there were no thoughts at all. There probably was. Yet there was no ´I´ with a need to use them for making up a special image. And though it may seem special due to the manipulation of it in Photoshop, there was no other intention behind this than having fun. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The world can only be perceived due to contrasts. We tend to notice those parts of the world with the most significant distinction, but if you pretend to be someone in the world instead of believing to be ´there´, you do not perceive differences to make a difference. Not because you perceive them as one but as different symbols of that which is one*. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PREFACE:
Exclusiveness is imperfection, and inclusiveness is perfection. This does not mean that everything included is perfect. None of the parts is perfect, but when all thoughts and feelings about reading this, for example, are included, it is a perfect moment.

This is not to say you must include every tiny detail of what you read, 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 your routine. You just included your pattern of excluding.

To make long short, if you do not try to escape the moment as it is by excluding what you judge to be wrong, you have no needs. Consequently, the moment feels perfect. This does not mean you may not crave something, but you are not attached to getting it.

PART 1:
It is not (good) enough,
or there must be more are the two common mantras of the seeker – and it is also the foundation for a world where there seems to be more than one. No moment is not good enough as it is. Something has to be improved. Love, for example, has to be more unconditional, pure or whatnot.

Taking a step now, you put one foot forward into the future, while the other foot remains in the past. In other words, there is no living in the now without the past and the future. That is why those trying to live in the now by excluding the past and the future never get it. And those including everything as it has the tranquillity of a perfect moment.

A perfect moment can last a split second while say »Fuck you« – or it can last an hour while you have a daydream about tomorrow or the whole night together with your lover. Including is what it is all about – or rather not to exclude because 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 imply anything is missing. Thus the moment feels perfect.

Meditation or other techniques supposed to make you spiritual cannot do that because they exclude something. 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 that.

Jesus, who the do-gooders often refer to around Christmas regarding peace, said: »I will not bring peace, but dissension, fire, sword and war«. Hence those, who fight the shit in themselves by projecting it onto others, may see the war in themselves. Read more about that in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

The reason you choose to block out the present moment by excluding part of it is that being fully present the shit inside you is exposed. So until you do not try to look pure, you will be on the run from a perfect moment.

Get physical!

The world is made up of appearances separated by time and space. So you cannot escape appearing as someone definitive by transforming your appearance through meditation, prayer, and chanting. That enhances the belief in being someone definitive, as only such a person can do so something. But if you stop doing something, which is done by not being exclusive, since without exclusion, there is no separation, and so nobody is doing anything. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
The advanced spiritual seeker is trying to avoid peak experiences – via meditation and tantra sex, for example – based on the idea that oneness is tranquillity. But that which is one can be compared to an unlimited stream of peak experiences, that change at such a speed, that there is no time for a person to differentiate them from each another, neither for a person to establish itself there, wherefore nobody is experiencing the peace of everything at one.

This has nothing to do with the state of mind one obtains via meditation, tantra, chanting, praying or other means of excluding unpleasant experiences. It is based on a wish to distance oneself from feeling the moment as it is and float all over it instead of being wide awake.

So what should a spiritual seeker do? The whole foundation of this question is misleading because there is no spirituality in a world defined by time and space because spirituality is formless. So as long as you appear to be in a world defined by time and space, you better forget about spirituality and adjust to the ways of such a world.

Fortunately, these ways can also be used to undo the belief in being there. Since this belief depends on separation, which seems to come into being through exclusion, you can be inclusive instead of exclusive. Being fully inclusive leaves nothing to define a world outside of you, neither to define you. In other words, there is nobody to experience something, which means nothing appears to hide that which cannot be experienced, namely spirituality.

If not including everything you experience but only part of it, you still appear to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. But you and the world seem for a moment less definable because the apparent differences do not appear to make a difference. This is called a perfect moment in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

PART 3:
Is it due to your power that you do not fall off the earth? No, it is the force of gravity. Is it you who controls breathing? No, a respiratory control centre at the base of your brain controls breathing. Is it you, who think? No, just like you are not the maker of gravity and the breath, nor are you the maker of thoughts.

Thoughts can be compared to seeing a cloud passing by that for a moment looks like a dog. But there is no dog in the sky. It is a hallucination – and so is the meaning of any thought that seems to pass by. They are meaningless frequencies that you try to assign with a purpose so that they seem to be your invention, and you, therefore, are someone definitive.

The clothes you are wearing are not you, neither are the thoughts you seem to think. But it is difficult to use them, if you mistake them for you.

Yet trying to stop them from passing by is the end of what you appear to be because it is nothing but a construction of thoughts. But why should you want to stop them at all. On the contrary, they are of great help in a world where there seems to be more than one. When you, for example, want to look up the bus schedule, you can pick thoughts passing by that are good for that purpose. See also the article A joyful life.

The faster thoughts spin, the quicker the person you consider yourself to be, seems to fall apart because there is not enough time to understand them or select precisely those that seem to uphold an image of you as someone definitive.

In those cases – unless you are in a situation that needs physical presence – go with the flow and have your mind blown. So blown that it does not know what is up or down, in or out and past or future leaving. This is such a relief that every moment is the perfect moment. This can be an ignition of the empty breath, which you can read about in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

To stop or to control thoughts is not the way to a perfect moment but to numbness. The inclusion of confusion and uncertainty but most of all, the extreme speed of thoughts leads to a perfect moment. When everything is fast-moving, the mind does not have the time to divide everything into categories.

Well, anything that is devoid of what you have defined as meaningful leads to a perfect moment. Therefore, if you do not try to express yourself as someone significant, you will be meaningless, so every moment is perfect!

NOTES:

  • It is not only this article that is meaningless. It applies to everything in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and the rest of the world, including astral ones and whatnot. And if you are not busy trying to understand, realise, find reasons and synchronicity, you know how wonderful it is to be meaningless.
  • Ultimately no one is full of shit or anything else. There is nothing to be full of, as there is no more than that which is one. For the same reason, there are no contrasts in oneness and, therefore, nothing to desire or fix.

CANCELLEX 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, but when all thoughts and feelings about reading this, for example, are included, it is a perfect moment.

This is not to say you must include every tiny detail of what you read, 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 your routine. You just included your pattern of excluding.

To make long short, if you do not try to escape the moment as it is by excluding what you judge to be wrong, you have no needs, and so the moment feels perfect. This does not mean you may not crave for something, but that you are not attached to getting it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no more than the formlessness of oneness since it is formless and therefore endless. Thus a world where there seems to be more than one is not real, regardless of how the moment appears to be. However, while you seem to be someone in a virtual world, it feels better to have a perfect moment. But ultimately, nothing will help you return to the formlessness of oneness because you have not left it.

Since it takes more than one to leave something, it is impossible to leave that which is one. Yet it seems possible to imagine it. Doing that, nobody can help you return to the formlessness of oneness because they are part of your imagination. Like within the context of the imagination, when what you appear to be ´there´ is having a dream, you are not going anywhere because you are in your bed.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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 an hour while you are having a daydream about tomorrow or the whole night being with your lover. 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 what and where you are, which is such a relief.

Meditation or other 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. However, this idea of living in the now 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.

How to find peace

Experiences are deceptive. The two orange dots in this image are for example most likely experienced not to have the same size although there actually is no difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Experiences are deceptive. The two orange dots in this image are, for example, most likely experienced to have different sizes. Yet, there is no difference in size if you actually measure them. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»When the outer has become as the inner, and the lower as the upper, then will this world find peace.« Jesus, according to the Gospel of Thomas.

When the apparent difference between outer and inner, lower and upper, make no difference, dimensions cease to appear. For something to be defined by time and space, it needs to be different from something else. If there is no difference experienced, there is no separation to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness since formlessness is endless.

In other words, what is dimensional does not exist. It only seems so as long as you insist on perceiving differences as if they make a difference. This illusion is the starting point of believing to be in a world defined by time and space. It is fabricated by imagining it is possible to observe the formlessness of oneness from different angles, making it appear as if different dimensional scenarios are occurring in linear time.

To make long short: By observing you repress, reality is the formlessness of oneness and not a world defined by time and space.

But you cannot choose to be anything else than the formlessness of oneness, as formlessness is endless, so there is no more than that which is one. You can, however, imagine being someone in a world defined by time and space, where everything appears to be in different sizes that you can choose from.

It can be fun pretending to be where you are not, but believing you are there feels like imprisonment you want to escape. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Unfortunately, all experiences are deceptive. Think, for example, about the Earth that is experienced to be flat even though it is round. Nothing in the world is what it seems to be. Actually, it is nothing but empty space. That is why happiness cannot be found ´there´ no matter how big your home is, your breast or penis is, or how small your ego appears to be.

But if you do not believe to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, you can have fun pretending to be ´there´. Just like – within the context of such a world – it can be fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

Yet believing to be in a world defined by time and space, you will be frustrated by what it delivers because nothing lasts no matter its size or apparent greatness, regardless it seems to be spiritual or mundane. So there will always be fear of loss, and as you still have vague memories of the formlessness of peace, it is a reminder that you have lost it. But this you cannot see until the feeling of loss is exposed instead of fenced off by the anger used to accuse something in a world defined by time and space for having caused it so that the formlessness of peace remains hidden,

In other words, although peace is always present since it is formless and therefore endless, it appears to be hidden when you hide your apparent loss of it behind anger. In contrast, the exposure of the essential sadness entailed by the loss of peace makes it possible to feel why you are sad, namely because you believe to be someone definitive. Hence you are not far from wanting to have this belief undone so that it does not hide there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one … and that is peace.

Suppose the unpleasant feeling of anger, just like any other feeling, is perceived as a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience a world where there seems to be more than one, instead of being a denial of that which is one. In that case, it becomes a positive confirmation of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

One effortless way to take the edge off anger is to perceive it for what it is, namely a symbol of reality, because it would not be possible to experience an illusion without that which is real. In other words, everything in a world defined by time and space is a symbol of the formlessness of that which is one – including anger, love, god, angels, soul and whatnot – and perceived like that, the sting is taken out of anger.

If you are looking for new experiences, no matter how high or pure they may seem to be, you have turned yourself into a victim of the future.

What you want is what you do not have, so if you presume that peace is what you want, the first step is to realise that you are fooling yourself. You cannot want peace because, contrary to the excitement, it is that which is you.

But you can want not to hide peace with dreams of excitement.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The foundation of a world where there seems to be more than one is separation. First, that which is one seems to become two and then more and more – and this is what such a world is about. Yet to be or have more does not lead to more peace, but more separation and therefore a feeling of more loss, enhancing the hope for more.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is nothing exciting about peace. Nevertheless, it is that which is life – not the kind of life though that appears to have an end. It has no beginning or end and thus no size. And as excitement always is evoked by something definable that is expected to give you lasting happiness when it is achieved in the future, there is no excitement in peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As peace is that which is one, and as that which is you is no different from that which is one, it is found when nobody is looking for it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What is said in this article about excitement also applies to hope. Peace leaves you nothing to hope for.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When not rushing around to get excited about this and that, boredom will reveal the peace of that which is.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you are not looking for excitement, you do not need to look for ways to relax.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Excitement is based on the idea that there must be more than that which is one. But no matter how excited or high you get, it is not enough. Any excitement or state of mind will enhance your motive of looking for excitement, namely to be or have more, so any achievement motivates you to look for more.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To be connected is an imagination based on the belief in separation, as you imagine a connection to something separated from you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Most persons, who consider themselves spiritual, agree that the world is in the eye of the beholder. If so, it seems those persons are fucked up because they always complain about the world and say it is missing something or something should be changed so there can be peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Peace needs nothing because it is formless and therefore endless, so it is everything. And so is that which is you, since there is no more than peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Peace has no privacy because it is without knowledge, consciousness and everything else that requires more than one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you believe to be someone definitive, you expect to be in a constant state of excitement. However, to feel excited, you must also be willing to feel bored because if excitement is not contrasted, you will not know when you feel it.

But as you always are on a quest for more excitement to hide, that believing to be someone definitive is very dull, you do not have time to be bored. Hence no matter how much you look for something to give you a kick, you find nothing.

And yet you do. That is, if you recognise, you find nothing, as this cannot be sensed without sensing the contrast of it, namely everything.

And having everything, there is no more to look for. Neither is there someone definitive to do so, since everything is that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. And that is nothing but peace.

Hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality is not meant to stop you from being excited, not even from desiring it. Nothing in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is about controlling or avoiding anything to get better because nothing in it is about getting better, but about undoing the belief that you are someone definitive.

This happens if you look at the excitement and everything else as symbols of that, which makes it possible to experience something like that, namely that which is one because when everything is a symbol of the same, their apparent difference makes no difference.

Hence the basis for the belief in separation is gone, and without it, you cannot be someone definitive. So by applying this hack, you can feel excited without enhancing the belief in being someone definitive, and hence the suffering it entails.

In other words, you can have fun appearing as someone definitive while at the same time undoing the belief that you are someone at all so that it becomes exciting undoing the belief that there is anything to be excited about.


NOTES:

  • Peace cannot be found, and neither is it necessary, since 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 oneness, and therefore nothing to disturb its eternal peace. In other words, only someone who wants to hide the formlessness of oneness has an answer to this question or other questions like ´who am I´.
  • This article is part of hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality.

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.
