[+]´The empty breath´ undoes all conditioning (in the process of being updated)

There are several established ways of feeling somebody else when you believe to be someone substantial in a tangible world. But there are no ways to feeling the empty breath than to momentarily stop believing that you are someone at all. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Since the empty breath has no personality, it has no power of its own, so if its rhythmic flow is experienced to be weaker when you appear to be sick or about to die, it is because the rhythm of it is always synchronised with what you believe to be. Yet the operator of the empty breath (see the paragraph of the same name in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?), which is the non-rhythmic energy behind the rhythm of the empty breath remains the same and is also experienced like that if this is the aspect you are in touch with.

So if the transparent non-rhythmic energy of the empty breath is only partially experienced, when the body seems to be out-of-order, the problem is not the empty breath, but that you do not want to experience it fully, when there seem to be problems with the condition of the body, because that would render it unimportant and thus question your belief in being there.

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

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

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

Not being conscious of something, there is nothing to make better. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
The achievement of something requires much effort, but since the empty breath is nothing, no effort is needed to obtain it. In fact, any attempt to do that hides it as that makes the empty breath seem to be something.

There is no help to get if you do not feel the transparent bliss of the empty breath, as this is a result of your own choice in believing to be someone substantial. This choice, however, is automatically undone, when everything you know is unlearned, so read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings until nobody is reading them.

Since everything you have you have learned enforces the belief, that you and what you experience consists of something – whether this is experienced to be mundane or spiritual – you need to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings again and again until there is not something like consciousness to be aware of someone definitive reading something specific.

Not being conscious of something, neither the empty breath, there is nothing to make perfect. Consequently, you are not benumbed in an experience of yourself as someone definitive but in the flow of nothing.

This does not necessarily mean that there are no feelings of sorrow or joy passing by, but that their apparent difference does not make a difference. Hence you should not go with the flow of the empty breath while driving a car, for example, as you need to be conscious about all the apparent differences in the traffic so you can follow your conditioned response to these differences. Read more about conditioned responses here.

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

But while brushing your teeth, doing the dishes, taking a walk in the park or something else, that does not crave a lot of attention, you can follow the flow of the empty breath, and thus bypass your conditioned perception, so it does not stop you from discovering new ways of taking care of the body and the life you seem to have inside it.

Hence the appearance of you as someone definitive does not seem to drag you down but to enhance the connection with the empty breath, and thus support having the belief in being someone definitive undone while at the same time enjoying it.

The most exciting aspect of ´the empty breath´, namely indifference, is not exciting but liberating.

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

PART 3:
Physically speaking the empty breath is best felt when the air is coming in and out through the nose and not the mouth. But not as if it is you who do the breathing, but an ´engine´ inside the body. It first expands the abdomen, secondly the belly and lastly the chest before it after a short break goes the other way to contract the body. And then on and on. It feels like there is hardly any air coming in and out of the nose but that it remains as a stream within the body.

Please be aware, that this is not a factual description of how breathing is carried out when the empty breath is in the driving seat, but a description of how it feels. It is not something you should try to replicate by doing deep breaths and whatnot. In fact, it has nothing to do with that, as the whole concept of the empty breath is that you do nothing.

Doing Nordic Walking, or rather going with the flow of it, could be beneficial you in regards to not to do something. It may also help you to expose the defence mechanisms, that you have built up in the body against going with the flow of the empty breath.

When you are connected with a Fitbit watch for example, it is from the connection itself you get an exceptional feeling but from the data it gives you.

Likewise you may not feel excited about the connection with the empty breath, as its radiance of indifference makes you indifferent to the apparent differences in a world defined by time and space. But as this makes the experience of it seems like nothing instead of something, you are in the bliss of emptiness.

This is not to say that all these defence mechanisms must come to an end to feel the empty breath. Having the willingness to not be somebody, but nobody is what makes you feel the empty breath. Neither is it important in which of the ways described in the previous article, What does ´the empty breath´ feel like, that it is felt, or if it is felt in another way.

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

Although these ways of feeling the empty breath definitely are fascinating, the most exciting way to feel it – or rather not feeling it – is simply to follow its consistent flow of indifference. Since that makes you indifferent to the experience of differences in the world where you appear to be, there does not seem to be anybody feeling anything but the bliss from being indifferent to the belief in being someone.

PART 4:
If the body seems to get better, when you feel connected with the empty breath, it is not due to the empty breath – at least not directly – because it does not know of something that needs improvement. Indirectly though it is because of the empty breath, as in its presence you are not in the default mode of doing something about something, so the body is not disturbed by your perception of being the master of it.

To imagine that the body is a product of how you perceive the world** or of something spiritual is like thinking there is a connection between the body and a coat, it is wearing. Though the coat seems to go where the body goes, there is no communicative link between them.

That the condition of the body is linked to what you think, is like assuming there is a connection between you and the world in a movie you are watching. This connection is entirely imaginative. The world in the film is unaffected by the thoughts or feelings you appear to have about it, and does it have the power to cause them, unless you imagine this.

In other words, no sicknesses in the body are caused by the mind, the soul or anything but something physical. Hence no mental or spiritual ideas will heal it. The attempt to do so results in psychosomatic disorders and frustrated thoughts and feelings about how to treat them. Unfortunately, this disturbance is perceived as proof of such a connection between the body and mind and/or soul instead of a warning against making such one.

The belief in a body-mind connection is a confusion of levels – just like when you feel your body is connected with somebody you are chatting with on the phone. Though there may be a mental connection, there is no physical connection.

Fortunately, the empty breath is indifferent to whatever you seem to think or feel, and so are you when connected with it. This does not mean it fixes the body, but that it liberates it from the sick ideas you have forced upon it so that it can be taken care of by its biological system – maybe with the help of qualified health care professional.

In the article, The purpose of the duality hacks is not to heal the body but the belief that there is someone in it, you can read more about how the mix of a physical symptom and your worries about it develops a psychosomatic disorder, that only can be healed when dealing with the physical manifestation in a physical way and the psychological problem in a mental or emotional way.

NOTE: This article is a nota bene to What is ´the empty breath´ about?. They are both part of hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

[+] What is ´the empty breath´ about? (in the process of being updated)

Everything fabricated – like for example this illustration of a yin-yang sign – is supposed to have a special appearance, so that the experience of it supplies the belief, that you are somebody. But this is not the purpose of the empty breath. On the contrary. Its purpose is to undo the belief, that you are someone at all, which it does by helping you to see, that the apparent differences in the world do not make a difference, so it does not matter whether anything appears perfect or not. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

In other words, whatever seems to disturb you in the low-frequency world of the outer senses will not seem stressful, when the empty breath synchs it with the high-frequency world of the inner senses. This feels like having a very relaxing dream.

At times, however, you may feel so angry, that you do not want this to happen because you know the empty breath makes you indifferent to those believed to have made you angry, so you will not be able to punish them. You, therefore,  prevent the aggressive energy from igniting a take-off to the empty breath by justifying the anger with those judged to be wrong.

But doing that, you first and foremost punish yourself, because we receive what we give (read more about that here). This goes on until you have had enough of manipulating your perception, so it suppresses everything that does not fit into your preferred belief system and instead has your aggressive energy ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´.

The empty breath is not the giver of joy and happiness but indifference
The nature of the empty breath is not happiness but indifference, and as this releases you from the boundaries of a world defined by time and space, it may feel as if you are in a merry-go-round world.

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

But feelings never last, so if you hang onto this feeling instead of going with the flow of being indifferent to what you feel, your merry-go-round world will be replaced by its contrast, namely sadness. This is only so because you mistook the empty breath for the giver of happiness instead of indifference, so if you stick with the latter, it makes no difference if you feel happy or sad, and that is very blissful.

That being said, you cannot remain in this bliss of indifference for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, if you want to go on as if you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Read more about that here.

The swing of the inner breath may be experienced abruptly – like in this animation but probably a lot slower – in a s body with muscles problems from for example psoas or diafragma. There is no reason though trying to make it swing more smoothly by improving the condition of the body. The inner breath always adjust itself to the current condition of the body, so no matter how it moves it results in the same joy, providing you are not looking to be perfect.

In a sick body, the swing of the empty breath may be experienced to come in bursts – a bit like in this animation but probably slower. But no matter how restricted the swing of it is experienced, the connection with it will always entail indifference, so if you stick with that the way it is experienced makes no difference. The animation is grabbed from the web.

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

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

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

In other words, the connectedness with the empty breath – either through surfing its waves, being in its transparent sound, the swing of it, or the sparkling force behind these rhythmic movements – is not a feeling that can be fabricated like for example a romantic evening generated by candles, special clothes, music and red wine. On the contrary. It is felt, when instead of busy trying to produce a specific feeling, the frenetic energy is used as a take-off to the empty breath.

Following the guidance of the empty breath you are automatically multitasking, because it does not know the concept of focusing on something specific. So if not feeling the empty breath, multitasking may pave the way. Read more about not feeling the empty breath in the next article The empty breath´ undoes all conditioning.

Please do not take the comparison of the inner breath to an yin yang sign too literally. An yin yang sign is all too simplified to really illustrate the inner breath.Yet it might give you an idea about the inner breath, which can also be compared to a spiral like the galaxy in this image, that the stylish yin yang sign might a simplified version of.

Please do not take the comparison of the empty breath to a yin-yang sign too literal. A yin-yang sign is all too simplified to really illustrate the empty breath, which rather is to be compared to the galaxy in this image. Maybe the yin-yang sign originally was a simplified illustration of such a constellation. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath never feels the same
Even though the empty breath seems to produce a constant rhythm of expansion and contraction in the body, your experience of it may not be that it is consistent. And you are right. It is not consistent, and it has no such need. Only those who believe to be somebody definitive has a need to be consistent, and since the empty breath does not believe to be anything at all, it does not need to uphold a persistent image of itself.

The empty breath can be compared to the cats in the home of Alexius. They go around as it pleases them, but he can always count on them to greet him when he gives them a call.

Feeling the empty breath is like receiving a new gift every moment. There is no way, however, to know what the gift will be before receiving it, neither do you need to know, because you are in a state of not-knowing.

The energy at the root of the inner breath may be experienced a bit like this, but in less defined forms and colors.

The energy at the root of the empty breath may be experienced a bit like this, but in less defined forms and without any awareness of colours. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Likewise, he can always count on the empty breath, and even though it solely moves on its own accord, it is always to be felt in one way or the other. Maybe Alexius experiences to be going up and down on a single wave in one of the circles in the empty breath several times in a row, where after he may feel the swing of it inside of his head, and then continue to surf of both of the yin-yang looking waves in another circle of the empty breath. In the previous article, What does ´the empty breath´ feel like, you can read more about the composition of the empty breath in endless circles.

After igniting a take-off to the empty breath, he mostly lands in its speedy and chaotic energy at the root of it, which feels like freedom compared to the rigid world of the outer senses. Going to bed, it may be the transparency of its sound that comes to him. But first of all, he simply feels the indifference of the empty breath, and since that means the apparent differences in the world does not appear to make a difference, it is hardly a feeling.

Using other duality hacks to get to the indifference of the empty breath
As any other Duality Hack except the enlightenment of that which is one induces a state of not-knowing, you can combine them if that makes it easier to connect with the empty breath and thus end up in a state of not-knowing. Since there is nobody to know something specific in that state, it cannot be known if it always is the same, but as the indifference, it entails to the belief in being someone definitive seems to be the same, you are sure to be in the transparent bliss of nothing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

d76fd0833b28d1db146c08a2dd2057d91-2

Each of the non-definable circles inside the non-definable ball of the empty breath – see the previous illustration – consist of two yin-yang like looking waves (but without the two holes), that are not fixated and probably moves in sync with the breath – or rather the breath moves in sync with them. It is therefore not so much about following the extraction and contraction of the physical breath but the flow of the empty breath, which may feel like you are surfing the outside of the two yin-yang like waves more or less in sync with the physical breath. The colours in this image only have an illustrative purpose.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Going with the flow without knowing where and why.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In hack #4.3 To be a happy self or not, you can read more about how the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection, where you perceive yourself to be the master of the body, results psychosomatic disorders.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

+ ´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be (in the process of being updated)

What you believe to be and see is nothing but empty space. Thus not being and seeing something specific is a blissful revelation of emptiness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath is not part of the experiences of you being someone substantial in a tangible world, which the brain fabricates by processing nothing into something (read more about that here). That is because the empty breath is unprocessed by the brain. This does not mean it is spiritual but that it remains in the nothingness from where the brain creates a world of something.

The only reason we believe the experiences created by the brain are real and not fantasy is that they seem to confirm we are somebody and not nobody. Hence it is only the belief, that we are somebody in a world defined by time and space, that seems to disguise the fact that we are nothing processed by the brain into something.

As it has taken the brain one second to fabricate the experience of what you believe to be and read now, there was nothing one second ago, and as that is where the empty breath resides, you connect with it by not perceiving the present experience as real and thus go back one second in time where the brain has not processed nothing into the current experience of something.

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

Science says, the world we seem to feel and see consist of 99.9999999 per cent empty space, and the rest, which is perceived to be elements of matter, is also empty space, included those perceiving this. See the articles Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and Free to float in the void of ´the empty breath´.

The brain, however, falls apart after 20 minutes, 45 at most (read more about that here) without someone confirming its experiences as something. So if you want to be able to return to the conscious experience fabricated by the brain of you as someone in a world defined by time and space, you must leave this state of not-knowing before the brain falls into a coma.

This you do by hanging onto specific thoughts and feelings about something special that confirm you are someone definitive, for example by sending love and healing to others. Read more about that here.

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

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

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

That is why it is best not to interpret the locations of the empty breath, as described in the next article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like? to be absolute. The empty breath is not definable by time and space and thus not something specific located in a definitive place (see the paragraph The transparent sound of the empty breath in the next article What does ´the empty breath´ feels like?).

Also, be aware that the description of the empty breath in that article is written by someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. This means that just like the concepts of the world in a game like Monopoly are acknowledged but not believed to be real, the idea of opposing contrasts, that seem to twist empty space into separated elements of something appearing to be inside or outside, for example, are acknowledged but not believed to be real.

In regards to where the empty breath is experienced, it is, therefore, best to deal with inside and outside, as metaphors for nowhere.*


The graphic, which is grabbed from the web, has been manipulated by Alexius.

In the next article you can read more detailed about the circles in this image, that graphically illustrates a few of the non-definitive circles that you are surfing within the empty breath, when connected with it.

None of the non definitive circles, though, are outside of you as in this image, which rather reflects the idea the special self has of the empty breath, namely that it is something it is in charge of. Read more about the special self here.

Yet what you believe to be are not in charge of anything since it is nowhere, as that which is one is formless and therefore endless and it takes more than one to be somewhere. This applies to the empty breath, as well but since it does not believe to anywhere or have any intention of taking you somewhere, it is your way back to the formlessness of oneness.

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


*) This is not to say that the apparent physical border of the body never should be taken literally. In fact, it is crucial to take it seriously, as long as it is experienced to contain what you believe to be.


NOTE: This article is a preface to the next article What does ´the empty breath´ feels like?. Both pieces are part of hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

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

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

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

As soon as you have had enough of the confusion coming from the belief in being special and do not try to edit or transform the energy of it into something better, it automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath. Since that resides in a gap between nothing and something and your current experience of being someone reading something is processed by the brain from what it imagined to receive from out of nothing one second ago (read more about that here), the take-off only takes about one second.

In other words, when connecting with the empty breath, you go back almost one second in linear time to the gap in between nothing and something where it resides.  From this gap, the brains rendering of nothing into a world of something is seen as you used to, but it is not perceived to be something and thus not you to be someone, wherefore you are in the bliss of emptiness.

In linear time, it may take a few more seconds, or years, before this is so because out of reflex you probably try to force the breath through the tensions of the body, caused by the feelings that you have suppressed from your awareness by hiding them there, instead of having the empty breath see to it. Since it considers the tensions as nothing, there is not something to pass.

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

It may feel as if you are fighting with the empty breath about how to breathe. This fight, however, is solely between what you believe to be and an imagined intruder because the empty breath is not intruding you. That is not possible. It does not see you as someone made of solid elements, but of emptiness like itself.  When you stop fighting, it will, therefore, be like nothing going through nothing.

To get to this point, you must be willing to breathe through the painful areas in the body instead of distracting yourself from feeling them. This does not mean that you cannot use medicine or acupuncture, for example, to ease the fear of pain. That may make it easier to pass through spasms, cramps and whatnot. There may be instances where more professional healthcare is needed. After all, the empty breath is not healing the body but the belief that there is someone there.

Having passed the apparent physical and emotional obstacles, not as somebody but nobody, it may at first feel like the empty breath takes its time before it slowly sets off from the abdomen. Almost like it is an inner breath that pumps air from there through to extract the body (read more about that here). Having done that, it goes on without any concept of inside and outside of a body.

Although this is nothing going through nothing, it is in a world where everything is experienced as something also experienced like that, for example as you are surfing the rhythmic flow of the empty breath, going with the sound or swing of or the total abstractness behind its rhythmic flow. This you can read more about in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

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

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

This is one of the ways the basic self ignites a take-off to the empty breath. But the ways described in this article and in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing are mainly geared for the special and not the basic self. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one. That is because most are drawn in by the excitement they imagine to get from being special rather than the pure happiness that comes from being basic, as the latter will not make them somebody in a world where being special, bitchy and having something better is the standard.

So although being special brings about stress and being basic entails relaxation, almost everybody does their best to be established as very special in a mundane or so-called spiritual way. In regards to the basic self, it is therefore not the stress of being somebody but the relaxation of being nobody, that ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

If not focused but defocused, all the elements used to construct what you believe is you blur out. Hence they do not seem to be something, and you, therefore, no different from the nothingness where the empty breath resides. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

So when you want to see the world as it is and you sense nothing but your own hand is stopping you from that, you automatically remove it. It is, therefore, the built-up frustration and the realisation it is caused by your own hand, that makes you take it away.

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

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

You may not only sense the bare feet making the footprints in this photo but also the body they belong to. Yet there is no body in the image, neither does anybody make footprints like those. Thus what you sense is a construction of thoughts. Read more about that here. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you have had enough of the confusion that comes from perceiving this fantasy to be real, you loosen the grip on the selected thoughts making up your perception of it. Hence they are not able to establish the apparent differences in the fantasy to make a difference. Consequently, the illusion does not appear to be something but nothing. Not in a sense, though, that you see nothing, but that what you see is not perceived to be something.

In other words, when you are fed up from perceiving your experiences to be real instead of fantasy, your frustration ignites a take-off to the empty breath. Since it takes you back to the nothingness from where the imagination of you as someone is conceived (read more about that here), you do not know what and where you are. Thus there is nobody to perceive experiences as if they are something. This does not mean they are transparent but that they are not attributed with a specific meaning.

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

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

Be warned, though, when returning from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive, the slate has been wiped clean, so even though you just had a unique experience, you are not special anymore but the basic self you always were supposed to be. As you are, therefore, not recognised as special, you may judge the world to be unjust.

What you believe to be and see is fabricated by the brain, so when it runs out of oxygen there is no more to be and see. Fortunately this fabrication of you as someone with a beginning and an end is easily bypassed, because it is made from out of nothing. The animation is grabbed from the web.

When a feeling is justified, it seems that it does not come from you but somewhere else. Yet it has only been excluded from your awareness. The feeling remains in the body as suppressed energy. To set it free, so it can ignite a take-off to the empty breath, you do not need to know what it is you have suppressed and why.

You just have to acknowledge the state of numbness it entails by totally being that and nothing else, as this does not leave something to define it, wherefore a take-off to the empty breath spontaneously is ignited and the suppressed feeling unveiled as nothing twisted into something special, so that you, who also is nothing, can appear as if you are important.

Here you can read more about totally being what you feel, so that whatever you are feeling is exposed as transparent bliss of nothing.

No worries, if you acknowledge the disappointment as yours instead of projecting it onto the world it can be used to ignite another take-off to the empty breath, so the slate again is wiped clean This applies not only to feeling disappointed but any feeling that is not justified with something, regardless you are aware of what exactly you feel and why. In other words, to entirely be what you feel in this moment ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

Had you not complained about your new status as a basic self when you returned from a state of not-knowing, there would have been no disappointment to ignite a new take-off to the empty breath. No worries. Being a basic self, you are happy and being that, there is no need to perceive experiences as something because happiness does not come from what you experience but from being in sync with the brain. See hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

As the experiences, therefore, are not ascribed with special meaning, they seem so unimportant, that, every now an there, there does not appear to be something to hide the bliss of nothing. In other words, you automatically and very quickly go back and forth a state of not-knowing and the conscious experience of being someone. See To be nobody and yet somebody.

When you are totally fed up with being controlled by the thoughts and feelings, you have sought out to form a belief system of how to be special, the system is automatically left. Not in the sense that you give up, let be or surrender. But in the sense that there is nothing to define you as special and thus no need to seek out thoughts and feelings that can confirm that. Consequently, you are free to be basic. See hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As you can see, igniting a take-off to the empty breath is not a matter of denying or indulging in sex or anything else but being so fed up of with the perception you have of what is right and wrong according to your belief system, socialism for example, so that you do not want to be caged by it anymore. See hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

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

If you are confused about how to connect with the empty breath, do not try to clear up the turmoil but be so confused, that there is nothing else than that and therefore not something to define you as confused. Hence you are in the gap between nothing and something where the empty breath resides.

EPILOGUE:
If you have followed the explanations in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings for how to connect with the empty breath and it worked for you, it will stop working if you think that you know how to make it work. The empty breath is not something but nothing. You cannot know how to make something that is not there work. But if you forget what and where you appear to be, you do not need to make it work because then you are someone who is not there.

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

Oneness is contrary to the common belief, not the same as quietness and stillness but wild and noisy. That is if the speed of it could be experienced. That is not possible, however, since it requires more than one to experience something.

You could also say, the reason oneness cannot be experienced is that it is like an analogue movie 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 makes one.

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

In the context of this metaphor, a world where there seems to be more than one is the 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 take it slow, because that makes them able to remain as if they are in control.

It is therefore not quietness but fastness, that is needed to accelerate the movie of oneness slowed down, so it seems to be a world divided into more than one back to its natural speed, so nothing is to be seen. But most, who believe to be living in a world where there seems to be more than one, is not ready for the full speed of oneness to wipe out the experience of that.

Hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing, therefore, uses the speed of thoughts and feelings which is quite fast when not holding back, so it ignites a take-off to the empty breath, that syncs this stressful energy  from the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high-frequency world of the inner senses, so it becomes abstract and thus relaxing. You may know this tranquillity from dreams.

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

This synchronisation that gently exposes the experience of living in a world where there seems to be more than one as nothing is only possible if you do not try to slow down the speedy flow of thoughts and shape into a philosophical or religious system. Having done so, the flow does not appear to be immaterial but material and thus to manifest your belief system as real. See also hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

In other words, if the synchronisation is not interrupted, the empty breath syncs the disturbing speed in the world of the outer senses with the world the inner senses, that increases the speed of it until you do not perceive the apparent differences in the brains fabrication of a world where there seems to be more than one to make a difference, and thus have no basis for believing to be someone definitive in its world, which is pure bliss.

This occurs slowly by slowly without you having to sit in strange postures or do something special. There is one thing, though, that you must do for the take-off to the empty breath to work. You got to acknowledge the chaos of thoughts and feelings exactly as it is experienced, and in no way try to analyse or understand it, as doing, so it is displaced by order. This also happens if you observe or justify the chaos of thoughts and feelings.

To no hide the chaos behind a mental or meditative activity, but instead acknowledge it as it is, you do nothing but totally being it.* This is not only the take-off to the empty breath but also the destination because totally being something leaves nothing to contrast it. As that leaves nothing to define you, you are in a state of not-knowing. Read more about this here.

In the connectedness with the empty breath, 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 everybody – nor to experience the bliss that this entails.

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

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

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.

Hence there is neither truth, love or anything else to be found in a world where there seems to be more than one. This, of course, includes Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Thus they 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 that which is one as this belief is what seems to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.


*) If you already have suppressed the chaos in an organised belief system, you do not need to find it in order to acknowledge it and thus release it. You just acknowledge the suppression by being nothing but that. Read more about that here.

[+] You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference (in the process of being updated)

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

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

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

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

Although the story of you as someone definitive is made up by yourself, it is not a happy but a sad stor, because you feel sad being separated.

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

In non-duality, everything is fused into one perpetual present, that no one can see, as it takes more than one to see something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A world defined by time and space is a slowed down version of the formlessness of oneness
It is not only because there is no space to separate the letters making up that which is one, that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because they are not still. They move so fast that time stands still, so it is not possible to organise them in a linear way – or any other way for that matter.

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

Furthermore, there seems to be time to arrange the separated shapes in different combinations attributed with each their own meaning, so not only space but also time establishes separation as real and thus that which is one as unreal.

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

Thus the way back to oneness does not come from slowing down thoughts via meditation or something else that makes you appear to be in control of the thoughts making up your particular shape so you seem to be at  rest and untouched by the speed of the Earth that is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour.

Neither does the way back come from understanding this or anything else, as to understand something enhances the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

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

To undo the belief in duality you must give up attributing meaning to anything, that seems to have a beginning and end so that the apparent differences of duality does not appear to make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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

The fastest way to not attribute meaning to something appearing to be there, is, of course, to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one). It promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you remember to have experienced so there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled and thus nobody to experience a world where there seems to be more than one.

If you, however, want to have your cake and eat it too, you can connect with the empty breath (read more about that here), because it undoes the belief in being someone in a less abrupt way. Thus you are able to enjoy the excitement of it while in the process of having it undone.

The reason for this is that the empty breath does not erase the memories of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet due to its flow of indifference, the apparent difference between what is believed to be you and others is not perceived to make a difference.

Thus a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be confirmed to be real. But it is quite fun to pretend that it is (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive). Just like in the context of the apparent reality of a world where there seems to be more than one, it is fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

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

Nothing needs to be done when not perceived as something
The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing –for example vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming and computer to smartphones to wearables – and the speed of info in cyberspace is a reminder, that the reality is sizeless since it is that which is one, and it requires more than one to take up space. As it, therefore, cannot be found in a world defined by time and space, nothing in such a world can bring you back to it, except the undoing of the belief that you are there.

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

What needs to be revealed is what appears to hide this. It is your perception of a dream that makes it appear real and likewise it is your perception of what and where you appear to be when you believe to be awake that establishes it as real. If you, for example, perceives a specific noise to be irritating, you will probably start to imagine how to get rid of it and how much better everything will be when the noise is gone. Thus the belief in being someone definitive is enhanced.

This is what the empty breath corrects without you having to change your perception or anything else because the noise, as well as your perception of it, is perceived as nothing by the empty breath and when connected with it this perception rubs off on you. The belief in being someone is, therefore, not enhanced but undone at once. In a world of linear time, this may seem to take a long time before there is nobody to realise this.

No worries. Time is also perceived as nothing by the empty breath, so while nothing happens you can have fun perceiving it to be something. In other words, with the empty breath by your side, you do not need to stop or change anything, nor to force the body into uncomfortable positions, to have the belief in being someone undone and at the same time having fun being in love, irritated or whatnot.

APPENDIX:
Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media is stressing. But that only seems so, because they want to uphold a special image of themselves, and therefore need to sort it in categories of good and bad, so it ends up in a story that points to you and like-minded ones as the good ones and others the bad ones. But as this story is based on countless judgments and speculative concepts regarding right and wrong, thoughts keep flying around, which is what feels stressing and not the amount of info.

This speculative and restless state though is not a problem, that needs to be fixed. In fact, the faster the speed of thoughts and feelings seem to be, the faster the stress disappears. That is if you do not try to slow down the speed but use it to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. Read more about that here.

BM00b To set the body free is to set you free [draft]

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

PART 1:
Imagine that sitting in a bathtub, you start to get glimpses of something that looks like a world in the steam coming up from the bathtub. Or imagine you look at a drawing or painting of some persons. What you seem to see is not real in the sense, that there is no life in the paintings or in the world you grasp in the steam of the bath top. Yet your imagination can make those lifeless things appear to be alive.

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

If you project thoughts onto the persons in the painting, they will seem to be in love or at war depending on the thoughts you are projecting. If you feel good, you may project love onto them, and experience this to come back to you from them and not you. Hence it feels like the persons in the painting are alive.

By adding more thoughts to your love story – for example, that the persons are coming from the heart – more good vibes seem to come to you from outside, and so it seems you have a connection with somebody outside of you. Yet it is all a story, you have made up in your head in order to appear as if you are and have more than that which is one.

That which is not real cannot be explained, neither can that which is real
The above is an example to illustrate, the world is made from the fragments of things you imagine to see in oneness. The example does not explain everything, though. Who is it, that see fragments of oneness, and is it possible to have fragments of oneness?

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

No, it is not possible to have fragments of oneness, and consequently, there are no fragments to see. But that which is not possible in reality may be possible in a fairy tale. Yet it is not possible to logically explain how something is possible in a world of a fairy tale, because there is no logical way to explain something that is not real. If there was, it would be real. That is why so many like to ask who they are.

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

Even though nobody has ever found an answer to that, they like to think the question in itself implies, that there is an answer to it, and that they, therefore, must exist as a real person.

It is just as crazy as to ask, who is the writer of this article and then start looking for the writer in the article. The writer is not there, and you are not in the world. Neither is there any explanation possible for that which is real, as it takes more than one to explain something, and reality is that which one.

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

This does not mean that there may not be bodily problems, but the body can deal with that itself. It is constructed as a self-healing organism. It may sometimes need your help to deal with its problems – just like it needs you to brush its teeth – but most of the time it is self-sufficient.

In a world encapsulated by time and space, all experiences are made up by the brain, including those of an astral world. The projections of thoughts onto the body in an attempt to make it perfect comes from your misperception of these experiences that otherwise would help you to keep the body healthy.

These misperceptions may cause you to think you must get rid of orange peel, obtain six-packs and other things that do not become the body. You can, therefore, make it easier for the body – and consequently, the person who appears to be there – by not projecting your thoughts onto the body but keep them in the mental sphere where they belong. Doing that you set the biological system free from your tyranny so it can do what it is made to, namely the health of the body.

Ways to depart that which is not real
To split body and mind in this way is also a very good exercise for departing the illusion of a world encapsulated by time and space because you can only leave it without a body. By separating body and mind, you will have a better time as a person in the world, and at the same, you are ´closer´ to the formlessness of oneness.

You could, of course, go back to your childhood and find the obsessive patterns of the mind projected on the body, and then – maybe with the help of a psychologist – face them in order to undo them. But that is very time-consuming, and the psychologist is not interested in splitting up your fabricated connection between the body and mind, as that goes against preserving the belief that we are the body, we appear to be in.

A much easier way to set the body free is to simply forgive the little child, who chose to project things of the mind onto the body, that as a grown-up has caused you so much pain. That is all! You do not have to know when the pattern started, neither do you have to understand the thought system of the little child. It is hardly understandable anyway for a grown-up. Besides, your intellectual understanding is not what the little child needs.

You can choose to forgive the little child in you, who chose to project its problems of the mind onto the body. And should you not be aware of the child in you, you can simply forgive the body, that did what you asked it to do. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

An even easier way to set the body free is to forgive it for doing what you have asked it to do.

The fastest and most simple way
Without that which is life no projections are possible, so you can simply choose to see all projection and what they seem to have caused, as symbols of that which is life. This way, the body may still suffer from projections onto it, but not you, because even though you appear in the world, you are not of it when perceived as a symbol of life. In other words, you are no more not a victim of the body and/or the world.

You cannot go wrong when you choose to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is life, because whatever way you to do it is a symbol of that which is life. In other words, you do not have to be pure or in any other way to be perfect, because whatever you seem to be in the world symbolises that which is life.

Ultimately there are no choices, but in the world of duality there appear to be many.

PART 2:
In a world where time appears to be linear, everything seems to take time. It takes, for example, eight minutes for the light of the sun to reach the Earth. So even though the body has been set free – see the previous article To set the body free is to set you free – it takes time before this is realised.

Nothing is very much, when there is no need to be and have more, because before there appeared to be more, there was nothing.

There may be old reflexes, that seems to disregard the new freedom because the very first reflex as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is to always be and have more than others, as that seems to confirm there is more than that which is one. But then you can ask yourself if the quest for more, brings about more satisfaction. And if not, you acknowledge, you must have been wrong in looking for more, which sets you free from the endless demand in the mind for more so you can enjoy the subtle feeling of everything being a symbol of that which is one.

When the mind is not forced upon the body, as if they are in a higher union, thoughts are not used to decide, where to go but how to go. Where to go may still be ‘heard’ as a thought though, but not one that arises from an inner debate of what is right and wrong.

This is not so much a feeling though, as it is a state of emptiness from where the body acts on direct intuition instead speculations of what is right and wrong. This does not mean, however, that thoughts cannot be useful. They come in handy when you intuitively are directed to start making dinner, where they are a great a tool in figuring out when to turn on the oven – perhaps assisted by Google where you can see how long time your food should be roasted.

A state of emptiness is too subtle to sense if you out of habit still look for more. No worries. Until that is phased out, you can enjoy the effect of emptiness, that not interfering with the body brings about, namely direct intuition.

If you have children, are in a fixed working situation or something else that seems to limit you do not have to break free from that. Direct intuition will guide you within those limits. Appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is by itself a limitation of that which is life, so as long as you seem to be a person in such a world, you will not be expanding these limitations but be guided within them.

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

If the pain in the mind is not denied, the thoughts that seem to cause the pain cannot hurt, but thoughts projected onto the body – your own or somebody else´s – seem to be able to hurt and confirm the belief, that you are a person to be defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3: It is in the mind that you conceive yourself as someone, definitive in a body defined by time and space. But as that which is you is formless and therefore not limited by time and space, it seems very painful to believe that you are someone definitive.

Yet it is pain, that makes this belief appear as if it is real. You pinch yourself to discover whether you are dreaming or not. It is the experience of pain that assures you to not be dreaming but alive.

In other words, to be alive is bracket together with being in pain, so even though the pain in your mind is unbearable, you do not want to really be healed of it. And as your sole existence as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is based on the denial of that which is one, denial is what you resort to in order to solve the problem with the pain in your mind. So you simply deny the pain in your mind by projecting it onto the body, which as a side effect appears more real through the pain coming from it.

Even though the projection of pain from the mind to the body results in a mind that seems peaceful, fear is also there, because you know that nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one will last. Hence you fear the return of pain.

It does not experience to return in the mind, though, but in the parts of the body, where you hid the problems that seemed to cause you pain. These parts of the body become sick, and if you succeed in healing the physical symptoms, the original problems of the mind find new places to hide – and so the story starts all over again.

A way to use the body as an offensive weapon can be to keep the mouth very closed, so no feelings slips out – especially those considered to be the evil, you judge part of the world to have done against you or others, which is the same, as the world is in the eye of the beholder.

A way to use the body like an offensive weapon is to keep the mouth closed, so no evil feelings slip out there. But you cannot selectively exclude one kind of feeling. The exclusion of one feeling rubs off on the others, so the more a feeling is denied by hiding it in the body, the number it becomes. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The symptoms of sickness in your body makes you angry at the world, which you blame for the condition of it. Hence you turn your body into either a weapon of defence or attack. Maybe you keep the shoulders pushed forward into a position of defence or you keep them pushed back into a position of constant readiness to attack. You may also push one or both shoulders upwards to defend yourself against feelings coming from the body to the brain, so they instead are registered as mental activity, as that seems less frightening than facing the chaotic feelings. But physically speaking this result in shortening and/or extending the muscles, so that the natural balance of the body is messed up.

The only thing that will heal the pain in the mind is the undoing of the sick belief that you are someone definitive. This healing, however, most want to avoid, as the result is that they are nothing.

There are lots of ways to heal the symptoms of the body, but as the problem is in the mind and not the body, the problem remains until it is faced there. The way to face it is to realise, that you are not someone definitive. That will put an end to whatever destructive behaviour, you have developed, because when you are not ´there´, there is no reason to consider any feeling a problem.

So although it is painful to appear as someone definitive, you do not identify with that or any other feeling. Instead, you see them as symbols of that which is you.

Greediness is just another symbol of that which is one.

Greediness is a natural state of mind in a world where there seems to be more than one, so do not try to correct it behind ideas of a body-mind-soul connection. There is nothing to correct but the belief that you are someone definitive, and it corrects itself when seeing this state as just another symbol of that which is one, as then it becomes a positive confirmation of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX 1:
What you experience to receive is what you have, because you cannot recognise what you do not have. What you have is what you believe to be, so in order to undo this belief, it is, therefore, best not to disguise it behind ideas of being spiritual, but to see the greedy creature you believe to be.

And the more you see that everything in a world where there seems to be more than one are symbols of that which is one, the less frightening it is to the greedy creature you appear to be.

APPENDIX 2:
As everything can be turned into an instrument to deny your present state of mind, so can seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one.

No worries. If that is the case you simply include denial as a symbol of that which is one – or include all problems as a symbol of that which is one. And should you forget to include something as a symbol of that which is one, you include your forgetfulness as a symbol of that which one.


NOTES:

BM00 The mental and physical sphere does not mix [draft]

An ice-cream may give a physical sensation, but it will not solve any mental or emotional problem. The mind must be dealt with by the mind. This, however, does not necessarily result in a physical sensation, because the mind and the body are two very different systems. But it will result in a relaxed mind, and such a mind has no need to project problems from the mind onto the body so that it is free to take care of itself without being interrupted by mental ideas like unconditional love and whatnot. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
For years there has been a very unhealthy idea about uniting body, mind and soul – or that the mind should be the master of the body. This idea has done much harm to the body, as it is a physical unit built to deal with physical matters and not mental matters.

A self-regulating system
The body is an expert in dealing with physical problems, but mental or emotional problems hid in the body blocks its ability to heal itself. It has no way to heal the resulting so-called psychosomatic problems.

Mental or emotional problems can only be healed in the sphere where they are perceived, so they need to be withdrawn from the body and brought back to the mind. This is not a mental process or steps to actively doing something. It is to see – without trying to explain or correct it in any way – that what you do not like is in your mind. It takes less than a second to re-establish the flow of energy in the body that in return sends a whole breath* throughout the body.

It is the same story about projecting problems in your mind onto other people or the world. By doing so, the world will seem fucked up, even though the mess is in your mind. The world is neither wrong or right. Even if it would be corrected according to your ideas of a better world, you would still not be content, because the problem has not been healed where it is, namely in your mind!

PART 2:
Feelings that seems too hard to deal with are often projected onto obscure parts of the body so that they seem out-of-the-way. But years later, these feelings may appear as physical symptoms. Maybe the stomach or the back has tightened up or become loose due to what has been hidden there. Such problems doctors have a hard time to diagnose, and even if they succeed in removing the symptoms, the cause of the problem remains unsolved and so new symptoms appear elsewhere in the body.

If a body is intolerant to gluten, you do not help it by projecting love or other mental concepts upon it, but eat gluten.

The body is built to heal different kinds of physical illnesses, but not psychological problems projected onto it. They have to be dealt with where they are made, namely in the mind. All that is needed for healing a psychological problem is to expose it in the mind instead of denying it by projecting it onto the body.

The mind is not part of the body – just like a bikini is not part of the body wearing it. They are two separate things. At times the bikini seems to follow the body. Yet there are no connection and it has no sense of the fragile reality of the body.

Well, one more thing is needed, namely, that you do not do this in the attempt to get physical relief or experience some physical sensation. If that is what you wish for, you should go to a fitness centre or attend to your body in other physical ways. The healing of a problem in the mind may result in a relaxed body, but that is not due to a connection between it and the mind, but due to the relive it is for the body when mental problems are not projected onto it.

To expose a problem in the mind is not to understand the cause or pattern of it or to understand anything at all, but to be it in the mind.

In other words, when you have a problem in the mind, forget all about the body, and attend to the problem in the mind, where you will also experience the resolution. Experience may not be the right word, because exposing the problem in the mind, it is included where it was excluded, and as it is only what is excluded that is remembered, you will not remember it, and so there is nothing to experience.

While appearing to be in a body enjoy the physical sensations from food, sex or other pleasurable things, but do not count on those bodily experiences for your wellbeing, as that will be all too exhausting for the body.

Wellbeing comes from not being exclusive but inclusive.** because then there is no need to hide the excluded in the body.

INTERLUDE:
The special self believes everything would be so much better if others would listen to it and follow its lead. But it seldom has a solution to the things it points out as wrong – at least not one that can be implemented. This, however, does not bother it, because its primary interest is to find faults that it can use to justify its dissociation from its negative feelings. Read more about that in hack #4.3 To be a happy self or not.

Since getting rid of its unpleasant feelings by projecting them onto others makes it feel guilty of attacking them, the special self fears their retribution. Thus it is very relieved every time someone is convicted of a crime because this makes it feels the guilty one has been found and that it is off the hook. In other words, the way it has dissociated itself from what it feels has not been detected, so no reason to feel guilty for making others wrong in order to make itself looks right.

The above should not be understood as the special self must change its behaviour, as that would imply it is real, but that the special would be better off by not excluding but including its feelings. See hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

PART 3:
To uphold the image of itself as a positive person, the special self avoids the feelings that it perceives to be negative by hiding them in the body. And to make sure nobody discovers it still contains these emotions – for example, sexual lust, power strivings, selfishness, greed, envy, anger and rage – it projects them onto the others.

But since everything in the script of the brain comes in pairs, it is not possible to experience positivity without its contrast, negativity, and vice versa. Thus the suppression of negative emotions does not turn the special self into a positive person but someone living in denial and, therefore, out of sync with the script of the brain.

Willingness to feel the emotions that seem to scare us reveals that they are not something but nothing. Just like the sounds, you hear when walking on an empty street, do not scare you when you turn around and look because then you realise that the scaring sounds just come from the wind playing with the leaves.

But if those feelings perceived as negative are not avoided, they do not seem to scare but assure you, because now they can be combined with their contrast so that the two halves make a whole. And what is whole feels good. So does feeling happy/sad, which is the combo that may arise from having lost the interest in the former relations based on exclusion.

APPENDIX:
Being the basic self and thus having a happy life does not necessarily mean that the body is perfect but that you feel good regardless of its condition because your perception of it is that it is what it is. Alexius body, for example, has chronic inflammation in the lungs and he has had several operations in the heart, although he never has been smoking and always been eating healthy and doing exercises. One leg is longer than the other, and one of his eyes hardly works. He has rhinitis, IBS and whatnot. The list goes on.

Most of the time, he does not try to change what cannot be altered. Sometimes, however, he turns into the special self in an attempt to make things better. That is until the frustrations coming from never feeling good enough makes him settle for the perception that it is what it is and thus feel good it is enough being the basic self.

This should not be understood as you do not do take care of the body when you rest in the basic self because regardless you appear to be the basic or special self, you are bound to follow the instructions of the brain, and it will most likely direct you to do something for your body. Maybe not something comprehensive, but at least small things like brushing the teeth etc. The special self, however, does not like to be instructed about anything, so although it does as it is told, it covers it up with a story wherein the body seems to be ruled by its ideas of love, balance and whatnot.

As this is out of sync with the script of the brain, it does not entail happiness but a feeling of rejection which is projected on the body, that does not know how to deal with it, as it is made to deal with physicality only. The result seems to be a psychosomatic disorder, that cannot be healed before the sick idea that spiritual concepts can heal something physical are withdrawn from the body, so it is free to heal itself, and the spiritual cis can be dismissed in the mental sphere where they were conceived.

NOTES: 

  • The above is not written in the context of that which is one but in the context of a world where there seems to be more than one.

++[+] Being in sync with the script of the brain or not

When you do not react to the script of the brain, or how you think it ought to be, by perceiving it to be something, there is no cause and effect and so it falls apart and leaves nothing but the emptiness from where it was conceived. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The self, the consciousness, the brain and that which is one

The brain cannot force the consciousness that it has implemented in the self it has created to acknowledge the experiences it continuously fabricates of a tangible world. But if the self wants to appear as it exists as someone substantial in the tangible world of the experiences, its consciousness has to endorse them as experiences of the self (read more about that here) because otherwise there is not something to confirm the existence of it.

If appearing as someone substantial in a tangible world does not seem appealing to the self, it should not pay attention to the stream of thoughts the brain makes to simulate the existence of such a world. Nor should it try to stop or change the constant stream, but sense to the emptiness from where the brain seems to have created it.

This, however, is not possible to do while experiencing to be something. But as the experience of something is made by the brain, and as it takes one second to do that (read more about that here), you can sense the unprocessed version of any experience of something at the beginning of that second (read more about that here), and thus remain in the bliss of not-knowing (read more about that here) what and where the brain makes you experience to be one second later.

You cannot continue in this state of not-knowing* for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most. See the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks. After that, you must again acknowledge that you are someone substantial by having conscious experiences of the tangible world rendered by the brain because otherwise, the brain falls into a coma, and you disappear in the nothingness from where your existence was conceived, wherefore there is nobody to experience nothing to be something anymore.

If the latter is the case, the unprocessed experiences from a state of not-knowing,* which are glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which you see, hear, feel or taste, quickly seem to merge into one light, sound, feeling or taste and thus bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

As it takes more than one to exist, what you believe to exist is gone and it was never there. And as this includes the believer, there is nobody to experience the light, sound, feeling or taste of oneness. Nor that the nothingness of you gracefully falls through a boundless black hole until there is no hole or anything else appearing to hide that which always has been and always will remain, namely the formlessness of oneness.

You can read about the ins and outs of a black hole here. And here you can learn how to have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one.

As there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, and as it takes more than one to experience something, the experience of being someone who sees this image is an illusion. And so is, of course, the experience of this article or anything else regardless it seems to be spiritual or mundane. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Nobody has ever seen Santa Claus. He is purely make-believe. The same applies to what and where you appear to be (read more about that here).

The above explanation should not be taken too literally, as doing so you remain in the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Having this belief undone just requires to admit that you do not have the willingness for this because by doing so, you acknowledge that being and having more than that which is one is make-believe. Thus the journey without distance to that which is one has begun.

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

To make long short, the enlightenment of that which is one abruptly terminates all experiences and thus the one appearing to have them. Applying the other duality hacks, it is a process over time, which they help you to enjoy – especially the hack you read, hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one. So, for now, we go on as if we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, and we explore how our experience of being there can be a happy one. 

The fear of not being somebody makes you dependent on the brain

Although the basic self feels free to follow the brain and the special self feels free from it, none of them is free. If not for the brain, it is not possible to appear as if you are somebody. Thus the freedom of the special self is pure speculation built on the perception that its experiences are coming from the heart, higher consciousness or whatnot, although all experiences are processed by the brain.

What you believe to be can be compared to a smartphone. Although it can do thousands of things, it is entirely dependent on its operator – just like you are of the brain.

So in each their one way, the basic and special self needs the brain. Without it, they are nobody, and since this is so frightening that they rather die than acknowledging their non-existence,** they are equally dependent on the brain to be ratified as somebody. The basic self does not hide this and proudly follows the brain. The special self, on the other hand, denies this and always oppose the brain. Yet what you fight, you need.

Just like the tricks of a magician are laid bare, the more you watch them, the experiences of the brain are exposed tas nothing distorted into something, the more you follow the brain. Hence the basic self sooner or later realises that the appearance as someone in a tangible world is a deception.

Having fully realised that, it does not appear to be someone anymore. Consequently, there is nobody to recognise that this or any other realisation is an illusion because there is nobody to know anything since that takes more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

The basic self has no need to stand out as special. Hence it is of no interest for those with such a demand, unless they project something special on the basic self. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Relating to the script of the brain

The special self is so removed from its basic being that it needs to be grounded or be transformed into a higher self (read more about being grounded here). But the basic self has no such needs. It does not search for anything but relates to the thoughts coming from the brain as they are so it always is in sync with the present experience processed by the brain.

Relating to the thoughts of the brain does not mean you must be in agreement with them to feel good. As long as your reaction refers to the thoughts of the brain, you will feel entertained whether you seem to be angry or calm.

Nor does relating to the thoughts of the brain make your life more consistent. Maybe you get an impulse to read this article in the middle of doing the dishes, and so you do, regardless of being the basic or special self, because the brain is in charge no matter what you believe to be. It is not in charge of how you perceive this interruption and thus how you respond to it.

The special self does relate to the present experience produced by the brain but how it had expected it to be. Thus it feels fragmented.

As the special self feels incomplete the apparent inconsistency in its experience triggers that, so it perceives it to be wrong and thus responds in a neurotic way. It blames the brain for this and tries to exclude what it perceives to get from it and only include what it judges to come from from the heart, for example. But all experiences are processed by the brain, and it is not possible to eliminate any part, except in one´s perception of them.

The basic self, on the other hand, perceives the apparent disturbance as an integrated part of the day´s entertainment. That is if it perceives any disruption at all. Most likely not, because the basic self feels fulfilled so it has no need to perceive anything as incomplete.

The special self wants to be free of the brain, but the only one oppressing it is itself. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being in sync with the script of the brain or not

If you perceive the sun to go up and down, your perception is out of sync with the script of the brain because the sun is not going up and down. It is what and where you believe to be, that is going up and down. See also The sun never goes up and down – it is a deception.

If your perception is in sync with the speed of the Earth and thus of you moving with it in that speed, you feel calm inside while racing outside.

As your perception, therefore, is not coordinated with what is going on, namely that your feet is spinning at around 1.000 miles an hour, while the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour. Hence you will not feel the thrill of moving at such a high rate but the depression coming from a static perception founded on unstable thoughts.

This stagnant perception, which is the one society supports, is meant to make you think that fulfilment does not come from not resonating with the present movement as it is but with a slowed-down version of it that gives you time to make a perception of yourself where you look powerful, humble, balanced, active or whatever you reckon will make appear more impressive. Feeling the pulsation of the moment, however, there is no time to make up a perception where you seem to be important, nor is there any need to do that because the body shivers with ecstasy as if it is has been shaken by an earthquake of tenderness.

In the case of Alexius he sometimes feels that it like listening to the Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk playing extremely rapid, intricate patterns of notes, which produce overtones so trance-inducing, that a cascade sound of purity makes you forget, it is ignited by the speed and complexity underneath it. Read more about that here.

There is no right way to perceive the complexity of a moment. But as long as the perception relates to it and not an edited and simplified version of it, every perception will make you feel good. So good, indeed, that the inherent speed of it may bring about glimpses of enlightenment (read about glimpses of enlightenment here).

The special self may claim that it wants this, but that is a lie. It fears it because speed prevents it from being in control and to thus to shape its appearance. That is why it meditates or something else to slow things down so that it has the time to consume static stuff like books and clothes and become wiser and more beautiful in the future, which it imagines will make it more loved.

To appear as if you are in a world of something but not of it and thus in the bliss of nothing, you can neither be in or out of sync with the script of the brain because both ways confirm that you are in the world of something and of it as well. So unlike the basic self who says »It is what it is« and the special self who says »I know what it is,« you say »Dunno what it is.«

Perceiving the script as Iit is what it is, you can count on always being in sync with it and thus to feel entertained by it. Besides, you are not that far from the perception, Dunno what it is, which connects you with the empty breath* and its the bliss of nothing instead of the brains entertainment of something.

If the latter is so, or you wish that it is, you are not confirming the world of the brain to be something. Since you, therefore, move back the one second in linear time it has taken the brain to twist nothing into something, you are in the gap between nothing and something where the empty breath* resides. There you cannot get the happiness of something but the bliss of nothing. Read more about that in hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.


*) Read about a state of not-knowing in the below hacks, and the empty breath in the two first hacks

**) An obvious way to escape the exposure of your nothingness is to have sex with others or yourself. If you are more desperate than that, you may choose to die and doing that having a near-death-experience with tunnels of lights or whatever the brain makes when it is running out of oxygen but want to reassure you that there is something, so you choose to return to the consciousness of being someone. See also the articles in the hack No Death But Life.

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

People have very strange ideas about what the enlightenment of that which is one is. Some think it is a process, that it is zen, to be pure love or consciousness or to see though all illusions. But to in a process, see or be something requires you to believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, and where there is more than one, there is no enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

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

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

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

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

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

A staircase seems to make you feel, that there is more on top of it so that if you go there, you feel you are experiencing more and therefore are more alive. But in reality, you cannot be more alive, as life is that which is one and it takes more than one to be more alive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The purpose of feelings is to make something feel as if it is tangible. But that which is you is not tangible, as it is the formlessness of oneness, and it takes more than one to feel something. Consequently what is felt is an illusion.

In other words, in reality, it is not possible to feel anything at all. Likewise, there is not something to experience in reality – or rather, there is no difference between the experiencer and the experienced. They are one. Consequently, the enlightenment of that which is one can neither be felt or experienced. It is, that which is.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Society, in general, prefers visual effects and consequently the visual aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one is the most known. However, the other aspects of it are just the same in the sense that they all are ways to make it attractive for you to not focus something definable but follow the flow into the formlessness of that which is one. Whatever aspect of enlightenment is revealed to you depends on your preferences in daily life. None of the aspects though are in themselves the goal. There is no goal because there is no more than that which is one.

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

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


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

Failure may be the greatest success

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

It takes two to define a person in the world.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

They tell you, that your suffering will stop when you are transformed into someone better and higher by following their teachings. But as that requires more than one, the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is enhanced and so is the idea of you as someone definitive.

More importantly, for the gurus is it that you need them and their ´wisdom´ and so you make them appear to be somebody who makes a difference. In other words, their help is all about confirming separation as real instead of undoing the belief in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NOTES:

Leave the body

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NOTES:

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

thegrandview1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You can also have the belief in being someone definitive undone in a similarly smooth way by having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one (see the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment) or connecting with the empty breath (see hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing).

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

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

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

If you do not want to take it slow but to have the belief in being someone definitive undone in less than no time, you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. See HACK #5-7, Inner senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it.

Apart from the enlightenment of that which is one, the above approaches overlap each other. Basically, they all lead to what in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is called a perfect moment, which is not perfect in the sense that there is nothing wrong, but that it makes no difference if something appears to be wrong or not.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

The difference between one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one and one who is not

Nobody walks around enlightened in the world of appearances, as it is an illusion to appear as someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one, and enlightenment of that which is one is not an illusion.

PART 1:
Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has nothing to discuss, and no need to participate in any kind of communication!

For the unenlightened, there is much to discuss, and the feeling of being part of a special community is very important. The purpose of it is to make the world or a world beyond it appears as if it is real so that they also are confirmed as someone real. The more there is to discuss, the more the sense of unreality is buried.

The unenlightened assume, that they think and that what they consider to be their thoughts is a very important contribution to the world. Yet nobody is thinking anything. Just like radio is only transmitting the signals that are hitting it, a person is only transmitting the signals it seems to receive.

A person though, contrary to a radio, try to uphold itself as if it is someone special by giving the impression that what it broadcasts are opinions and feelings of its own. These ´personal´ opinions are used to manifest them as a person as with a self, but even though saints and psychologist in each their own way have searched for the self, nobody has found it, neither have they found god, soul, mind or ego. But based on endless speculations they conclude it must be there, and that consequently, they exist as individuals in a world defined by time and space.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

On social media you can build a personality brick by brick exactly as you want it to be preserved for your undying fame. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Nowadays electronic media has become the means to feel alive. Many do not feel they have had breakfast before sharing it on Instagram – or they need to see how many steps their fitness tracker have registered, before they know what to feel.

On social media it is so easy to build a political correct and apparent popular personality. You simply delete those images and/or messages, that do not get enough likes. In this way you can control the image of you, so it appears likable, and as if you always do the right thing.

Scientists are not able to prove the existence of such a world. In fact they tend to say it is not there, and that it is to be compared to a hologram – just like ancient scriptures say the world is an illusion or to be compared to a dream.

All these discussions about god, soul, mind, ego and the future of the world are so boring for someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one so these concepts are just as illusionary as any other. These endless speculations are to be compared to persons in a dream discussing, what and where they are as if they are somewhere. They are nowhere. They do not exist. Only the dreamer exist. Period.

PART 2:
It is very important to be visible for those, who want to be somebody important in a world defined by time and space. It is a must to be seen and see others, so that you can reinforce the belief, that you as someone definitive are part of a world where there seems to be more than one.

One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one knows, there is no world, so the enlightened has no interest in being someone in particular. In fact, it feels so good to be nobody – transparent like the air – and to not focus on appearances, but that which makes it possible to experience something that is not there, as if it is.

Most have forgotten, a world, where there seems to be more than one, is a notion, a silly idea that cannot be realised, and so they try to connect to others by sharing the belief, that such a world is real and that they, therefore, have succeeded in being and having more than that which is one.

A world where there seems to be more than one is a twisted version of that which is one. In oneness, everything ´happens´ fast and simultaneously, so there is no way of distinguishing anything like in the world. That which is one can be compared to a movie that runs so fast, that there are no differences to see, whereas a world where there seems to be more than one can be compared to the same movie but shown in slow motion so that all the different frames makes it appear as if differences make a difference.

You could also compare the world to an extension of a computer dot. A computer dot looks like it is one round thing, but it consists of innumerable amounts of square pixels, that are so tight together, that they cannot be perceived as separated identities unless the dot is extended.

But it is not possible to extend that which is one, so experiencing different appearances in linear time is an illusion. Yet when you appear to be in this illusion everything seems to take time. The enlightened know that and therefore patiently wait to return to the reality of that which is one. As nothing in the illusion can be experienced without it, everything in the illusion is a symbol of it. In other words, every moment is perfect* – and so there is nothing to wait for.

A dream is not real and so there´s no one there. Neither is a a dream made by any one. What is not real cannot be made. It can only be dreamed.

Even though it may appear as if there is somebody in a dream, there is nobody ´there´, because it is not real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Somebody who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one never waits, because such a person has nothing to hope for. Neither does such a person live in the now, as there is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Consequently, such a person does not live in the world. Well, nobody lives ´there´. It only appears so – just like there appears to be somebody in a movie.

In the world – like in a movie – everything has an end. The unenlightened is therefore always afraid of loss and hoping for the end not to come or at least be postponed – and so ideas of god, heaven, reincarnation or anything else, that seem to extend the life of a person in the world are much cherished.

The way somebody who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one deal with the world can be compared to how a person participates in a game like Monopoly: It is not possible to be in the world Monopoly, but it is possible to pretend to be ´there´.

The unenlightened may ask, who is it, that is pretending to ´there´ – but somebody who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one would never ask such a question. There is no more than that which is one. Consequently, there is nobody pretending to be ´there´ – just like there is nobody pretending to be in a dream.

INTERLUDE:
The unenlightened likes to demonstrate specific knowledge of ancient scriptures and whatnot in order to prove there is something greater, that the unenlightened is a special part of. But one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has no need to be part of anything. There is no more than that which is one, so to be part of something is an illusion – as is to be or know anything at all.

When you see a movie, you forget it is not real, and you seem to go, where the movie takes you.

When we watch a movie, we forget it is not real, and for a while, we seem to go where the movie takes us, although we do not really believe to be there. Unfortunately, though most seem to have forgotten, that the movie called The World is not real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To have a quiet mind does not mean that there are no thoughts, but that you do not consider them to be yours – or anybody else´s for that matter. In other words, thoughts and feelings seem to be rushing through one who is compared to the enlightenment of that which is one just like in everybody else, but the enlightened does not follow them.

PART 4:
The unenlightened sees differences everywhere – so does one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, but the latter does not perceive them make a difference.

The unenlightened is full of thoughts, that they assume are made by themselves and therefore represent the specific personality, they believe to have. In one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, there are also many thoughts, but there is no ´I´ with a need to pick them up and put them together in such a way, that it seems they belong to someone specific – and so thoughts are just passing by like birds in the sky.

This does not mean, that one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one observes the thoughts passing by. Not all, when an angry thought is passing by, he/she is angry – nothing more or less. And when thought of compassion passes by, he/she is nothing but compassion at that moment.

The only real difference between the unenlightened and the enlightened seems to be that the enlightened – metaphorically speaking – knows, where the river goes, so there is no need to search for something. Instead, he/she can really enjoy all aspects of the roller coaster ride it feels to be following the flow of the river.

Everybody in the roller coaster is heading to the sea – and if you do not see yourself and everybody else there, you must be mistaken. No worries though – a mistake can easily be corrected. That is if you acknowledge you are mistaken.

PART 5:
There is no more than one in the enlightenment of that which is one, and as it requires more than one to experience something or be in a state, it is neither experience or a state. So to bid it welcome the person you appear to be must die in order for nobody to be in the enlightenment of that which is one. This is probably why St. Paul accordingly to the New Testament said, that he died daily.

In other words, nobody walks around enlightened as that which is one. That is not possible, because the enlightenment of that which is one is the destruction of a world where there seems to be more than one. Not that it really is destructed, because it is not real, as there is no more than that which is one.

Appearing to return from the enlightenment of that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one, you appear to be just like everybody else in such a world. But there is one big difference: You know from vague memories of the enlightenment of that which is one, that there is no more than that which is one, so you do not believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one – you just pretend to be there.

This may be perceived by others as one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one is detached, and so they conclude, they need to be detached to be enlightened, but it is the other way around. You need to not be or know anything to bid welcome the enlightened of that which is one.


*) That a moment is perfect does not mean, that everything is good, but that bad is just as perfect as good! 


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

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

This article is part of hack #5-7.4 Notes about enlightenment and whatnot.

Strangers in the Night

The world is fabricated by bits and pieces.

In old scriptures, being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is often compared to being in a world of darkness. If they meant it literally, Alexius do not know, but he knows there is no light in a world where there seems to be more than one coming from the stars, the sun or anything else. It is something we have learned to imagine so that we can navigate in a world of darkness. His below story is illustrating this:

Fabricating my world in the darkness
There are no streetlights outside my home, so when I wake up in the middle of the night, the only thing to ´light´ up my bedroom is the stars or the moon. One may, therefore, conclude, it is impossible for me to find the way to the toilet unless I use a torch or turn on the electrical light.

Yet it is easy for me to find the way without the help of electrical light because I have learned where everything is and can use certain things as navigation points so that they seem to ´light´ up the way. It is all imagined though and put together by trial and error. I actually stumbled quite a few times learning to ´see´ the way.

But I cannot ´see´ anything else in the night than the way, I have fabricated to the toilet because I have not learned to ´see´ more than that. I may be able to learn ´seeing´ beyond this if I study how to do this. But what I learn to ´see´ beyond my way to the toilet will just be another fabrication, as the rooms next to my bedroom are also completely in the dark.

The way from my bed to the toilet can be compared to everybody´s way in a world where there seems to be more than one. You seem to see something and then navigate from that to what you interpret as something else. But you are moving in the dark, and whatever you think you see is an image, that you have learned to perceive as if it is the reality. Without this fantasy, there is nothing to see. Neither is there anything hidden or something to be learned except, that it is all an illusion.

What is fabricated does not exist
When you do not care to find your way through the darkness, all that you had imagined there will disappear – also darkness, which is just as imagined. And without this imagination – or rather the belief in it – there is nothing but unimaginable light. Not a light like that can be compared to the sun or similar artificial sources of light. And not a light that lights up something to see. There is nothing to light up.

Everything is one light. When the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome, the belief that there is something to see cannot survive. And when there is nothing to see, there is not something to hide that which is one.

You can compare bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one to a video call to that which is one. There is so much light on the video screen, that you cannot see it, neither the world, until you hang up the phone, and find yourself back in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you remember, there is no more than that which is one and that it is no different from that which is you, so it is not possible to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you can pretend to be ´there´.

In other words, you pretend to be someone definitive, but what you pretend to be, you are not. That which is you is the formlessness of oneness.

Kind regards
Alexius


NOTES:

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

_IGP4777_78_79_80_81-Edit

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

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

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

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

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

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

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