If you want to dive into the bliss of the empty breath, it may be beneficial to read this intro about it. But if you are tired of words and just want the bliss you go to Take-offs to ´the empty breath´.

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

So to provide the students with guidelines of how to design, he wrote two books with basic rules of how to do it, which he deducted from his intuitive way of designing. He also wrote a book on colour theory, by the way.

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

The empty breath cannot help us in regards to knowing how come we appear to be substantial beings separated from each other by time and space, because this is not possible, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no time and space. Yet the empty breath is beneficial in regards to exposing, that a world defined by time and space, therefore, is nothing but a fantasy made from empty space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

How to explain the empty breath?
In regards to passing on guidelines of how to connect with the empty breath and drift in its bliss of indifference to the belief in being someone definitive, he is in the same situation, as when he was involved in teaching how to design. He had no professional training in design to refer to. Likewise, he has no second-hand knowledge, he can use to explain how to connect with the empty breath.

Neither does he know how to explain, that what and where we experience to be is an artificial construct, designed by the brain to control and manipulate us into believing, that this experience is real and not a fabrication the brain has made from out of nothing.

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

In this fantasy, however, he knows how to annul it and be in the state of not-knowing that the empty breath, like the other duality hacks, entails. In such a state, he was guided to watch a movie (You Disappear), which quoted the latest scientific explorations about the brain, which may be helpful in realising that everything which appears to be something is nothing.

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

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

These experiences of an external world the brain claim to process from the frequencies it receives via the senses, but this explanation, just like the experiences it fabricates, is a smokescreen to cover up, that it is all made up from nothing. That is why it does not differentiate between imagination and reality and uses the same organ to deal with both. A flower, therefore, is just as unreal as a plastic simulation of it.

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

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

Science states, the world that we seem to feel and see consist of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and just like a dream does not contain anything substantial, is what we perceive as elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space.

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

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

The rest of the article is not based on the scientific discoveries revealed in the movie (You Disappear), nor on anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, as to the knowledge of Alexius, nobody else has published anything about the empty breath. See also Where do the hacks of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings come from.

The bliss of nothingness
Though science seems to know that the experience of something is made from nothing and therefore is make-believe, they are more interested in exploring something than nothing. It is in the latter, however, that the empty breath resides.

The experiences the brain fabricates of a tangible world only seem to be real if the self that the brain also has created perceives them as something. If not, they are exposed as nothing, and so is the self. To perceive the present experience as nothing, you go back to the empty void from where the brain has used one second to alter nothing into your current experience of something.

As that is where the empty breath resides, it only takes one second to connect with it and be in a state of not-knowing and its the bliss of nothingness.* To go back one minute in linear time, there is nothing specific you need to do or not to do. But you need to be willing to forget what and where you appear to be. Read more about that in the below paragraph The only requirement is a willingness.

If the brain is not kept active in a feedback loop with thoughts of separation for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, it falls into coma. See also the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks.

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

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

Since you cannot be somewhere, nor a state of not-knowing,* without having just a little experience of being someone, there is still someone to experience the world made up by the brain a state of not-knowing*. It is, however, not experienced as something but nothing, as the experience of you as someone is so vague that there is not enough consciousness to perceive the apparent different experiences to make a difference. Consequently, there is no separation to hide, that although it seems fun to play along with the fantasy of separation, doing that is nothing compared to the bliss of emptiness.

The world of the outer senses is a tale of something, the brain has made from the abstractness in the world of the inner senses. That is the short version. In the next article What and where are the inner and outer senses, you can read the longer and more nuanced story.

The inner and outer senses
When we are not connected with the empty breath, and therefore not in the blissful state of not-knowing* but either in the happiness of the basic self or the nervousness of special that is always stressing to get better in the world of the outer senses, the empty breath is still with us, provided we have just once connected with it, because it does not know of separation.

But it is only when the connection is mutual that the empty breath can function as an automatic gear change between the outer and inner senses, and make the abstractness in the world of the inner senses the base from where the world of the outer senses is perceived, so it does not appear to consist of something but nothing.

As all experiences are illusionary it includes the experience of the empty breath. But as this illusion unveils the bliss of nothing and there is so much of it that eventually you cannot ask for more, wherefore the belief that it is possible to be an have more than that which is one is undone.

This only makes only sense as long as you believe, that the experience of you as someone definitive in the world of the outer senses is real, because that experience as well as any other – including the connectedness with the empty breath or anything else considered to be spiritual – is a deception made from out of nothing.

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

In the flow of not believing to be someone

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

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

It is not thoughts as such, that prevents us from going with the flow, but the desire to use them to accomplishing something specific.

That being said, you might not want his synchronisation, because although it results in indifference to stress, it may not produce what you stressed to get. That is why most want to avoid the flow of the empty breath and endure the tension the hassle it takes to obtain what they want.

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

Even though getting what they want does not result in lasting satisfaction, they prefer to carry on searching for something new and better to make them happy and lessen the stress that this entails through meditation, yoga or other techniques making them appear to not be egoistic, though it is all about becoming and having more at the expense of others (see That which is you has no end).

The bliss of not believing to be someone may appear as blurry


The more the connectedness with the empty breath cancels out the contrasts of tangible feelings – for example happiness and sadness – in the world of the outer senses by synchronizing them with the abstractness of the inner senses, the more you are indifferent to the apparent existence of the world experienced with the outer senses, because when you neither feel happy or sad about it does not make sense. This does not mean, that you begin to see the world of the outer senses as in this image, although that is a possibility, but that you begin to perceive its apparent differences to not make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When the substantial world of the outer senses is equally synchronised with the abstractness in the world of the inner senses, you are partially somebody and nobody, but not enough somebody to know what and where you are.

Though that means you are in a state of not-knowing, part of you as someone definitive is still kept intact in order for you to be there. Read more about this in the next article What and where are the inner and outer senses.

The same applies to experiencing the world of the inner senses. There must to be someone to experience it. If not, the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one is over, and so there is nothing to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

Going with the flow
Being process and not result minded though, the flow of the empty breath can also set off from what appears to be egoistic motivated. Just like it probably was part of the reflow for Alexius to start writing about the empty breath by following his own idea of emphasising the synchronisation of the outer and inner senses.

Yet going with the flow, the emphasis turned out to be on the bliss of emptiness, that arises from the connectedness with the empty breath and its indifference to the belief in being someone definitive.

No concepts survive the bliss of not believing to be someone

Concepts like the sun are going up and down are meant to mislead you into believing, the world revolves around you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

So do not let concepts of right and wrong prevent you from going with the flow. Even within the context of living in a world defined by time and space, most ideas are deceptive.

The ground beneath our feet is spinning at 1.000 miles an hour and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour.

You may, for example, experience the sun to go up and down. Yet it only appears so, because you believe to be someone separated from a tangible world experienced to revolve around you. Yet it is not the sun that is going up and down, but what and where you believe to be. See The sun does not go up and down – it is a deception.

Ways to connect with the empty breath
It seems, that while in the flow of writing about the empty breath, ways of explaining how to ignite a take-off to it popped up. For example, by using the energy of the stress arising from the belief in being someone definitive as a take-off. Read more about how to do that in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

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

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

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

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

If this is what you want, it is not important whether you read hack #4, Being in a state of not-knowing from beginning to end or just browse it. What is essential is to not focus on anything in particular or spend time on processing it to integrate it.*** It is not about integrating or learning something but to unlearn everything, so you do not contain anything and thus is an empty vessel can be at service for the empty breath.

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

Ways to not connect with the empty breath
The need to connect with the empty breath in your own pace and to spend time on processing what you have read about it comes from the belief, that what the brain makes you appear to be is real.

In order to support this belief, you or the brain, which basically is the same since what you believe to be is a construction of thoughts, need time to twist Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings into the already established concept of what and where you are (see Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´).

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

Looking for something you can relate to as your true self in the teachings of a guru or somebody else, you do not look for that which is real, because it is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to look for something. Since what you believe to be is a fantasy made from out of empty space, it is being undone when you do not relate to something but nothing because then there is no relation and therefore no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This, however, is not necessary with the spiritual teachings in fashion. It has already been done by those promoting them so that even though spirituality is formless, it seems as if it can be obtained by someone definitive through coming from the heart or something else shaped by time and space.

In such teachings, you may seem to recognise the extraordinary entity, you believe, is your true nature. But whatever you believe to be is nothing, because spirituality is everything, as it is formless and therefore endless.

So do not read about the empty breath with the expectation of finding something to make you or the world better, but to become indifferent to what and where you appear to be.

It is a waste of time reading about the empty breath if you want to become more spiritual or wise, because just like what you believe to be, the empty breath is nothing but empty space (see the article ´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be).

So the less you seem to know something,** the less something appears to hide, what you believe to be is nothing. Hence there is not something to separate you from the empty breath.

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

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

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

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

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

Momentarily being connected with the empty breath is very blissful, because it makes you indifferent to the belief that you are someone definitive, so there does not appear to be someone bothered about the appearance of anything.

Appearing there without being there
Having the belief in being someone definitive undone, does not mean that what you appear to is destroyed, reborn or awaken. Just like within the context of this belief, it is not Santa Claus that is undone when you grow up, but the belief that he is real. In short, the indifference to the experience of you as someone definitive does not change the look of it.

Since nothing matters when connected with the empty breath, you are free to pursue whatever seems to matter.

Looking for nothing is the door to the bliss of not believing to be someone

If you are not looking for something special to confirm your belief in being special, you will probably be indifferent the apparent differences in this image and therefore also to the apparent separation between the image and what you appear to be, and hence in the bliss of not-knowing what and where you are. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you start to grasp that what you appear to be is a fantasy, it is amazing to appear as if you are Santa Claus, a father, a mother or whatnot, while your on and off connection with the empty breath slowly but surely makes you indifferent to the belief that you are someone at all.

Reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings probably seem depressing, if you believe to be unique, because they do not imply there is any hope for you in the future, because that is nothing but empty space.

Yet the inclusion of hopelessness is the key to not look for something to hide the depression that is depressing anger and thus the nothingness from where bliss arises, when not hoping to find something there. See also the hack No Hope = Oneness in Extra Duality Hacks.

The bliss of not believing to be someone

Whether you believe the dog in this image is real or not, the image of it remains the same. Not believing it is real, however, you are indifferent to whatever it seems to make you think and/or feel. Hence you are free to play along with any kind of fantasy, the brain fabricates from this. This is what it is like to be in the indifference of the empty breath. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To be indifferent or not
The below metaphor may be beneficial in regards to picking up on what it is the empty breath brings about:

When you believe to be someone – whether physical or spiritual – something must be perceived to be different from you, so you appear to be separated from it and therefore, to be someone definitive. Thus when playing a game like Monopoly, for example, you do it to make its world of illusionary differences real by insisting that they make a difference.

But the more you are in the indifference of the empty breath, the more you play Monopoly to have fun pretending, that its apparent differences make a difference.

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

How does it feel
The connection with the empty breath may be experienced as described by Alexius in the articles What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?, and The empty breath´ undoes all conditioning. But do not count on it, because his experience of it is not static. And even if it were, you and Alexius would probably experience it in each your own way – just like would do if having the same cup of tea. Besides the main attribute of the empty breath is indifference, and that is hardly an experience.

Alexius Jorgensen in the bliss of not believing to be someone


When not perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference, there is nothing to uphold the belief in separation and therefore neither in you as someone definitive. As that means there is nobody to judge something as wrong or good for that matter, you are in a state of not-knowing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not trying to experience anything specific but including everything exactly as it is perceived to be brings about a state of not-knowing, because without excluding something there is nothing to define you as someone.

Hence you are therefore in the bliss of not-knowing what and where you are, and this is also where you are when connecting with the the empty breath, having glimpses of enlightenment, or applying any other the duality hack except for the enlightenment of that which is one.

If these states of bliss are identical is not to know, because they are all states of not-knowing*, which is an equal mix of empty space and the conscious experience of you as someone definitive, the brain has fabricated from that.

There is nobody in the bliss of not believing to be someone

In a state of not-knowing there is not enough consciousness to be aware of yourself as someone definitive separated from what you experience to a world outside of you. Thus you are in the bliss of indifference to the world of separation, that the brain fabricate to make you appear as if you are someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In this mix there is not enough consciousness to perceive the apparent differences in the world to make a difference, so you are indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive. Yet there is enough consciousness to cover that the world is nothing but empty space, so you still appear to be there, though in a more abstract way than when being fully conscious.

A state of not-knowing* lasts as long as you do not try to regain full consciousness (see Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´), but not more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, if you want to remain as if you are someone living in a capsule of time and space.

The enlightenment of that which is one though is not a state of not-knowing, since it totally erases the memory of ever having appeared to be someone definitive (see hack #5-7.2 Inner senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it), and without just a bit of that, there is nobody left to be in any kind of state.

Measured in linear time the enlightenment of that which is one probably just last a few minutes. We are so conditioned to believe, we are somebody definitive in a world defined by time and space, that the fear of annihilation takes over and we compulsively imagine to see something, so that we again appear to be somebody in a world defined by time and space.

This also applies to Buddha and Jesus or anybody else who has bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, because it only takes one to undo the belief in not being one, and there still appear to a world where there seems to be more than one, so every one has used fear as a way to reboot as somebody definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

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

On top of that, it may not even be the empty breath, that is uncovered through the willingness to not uphold the belief in being someone definitive. Maybe it is the enlightenment of that which is one or a glimpse of it (see the article A reintroduction to the inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it), or the freedom that comes from pretending to be what you are not (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive).

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

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

The bliss of nothing cannot be obtained, as it is not something
By implementing of one or more of the duality hacks you cancel out the apparent difference between the opposing sides of the contrasts making up the experience of you as someone definitive in the world of the outer senses, so that there are no differences to attest to you being different from the world where you experience to be.

As the conscious experience fabricated by the brain of you as someone separated from a world outside of you, therefore, does not make sense, you do not know what and where you are. Thus being in a state of not-knowing*.

A state of not-knowing* set-off on its own accord by the willingness to not believe you are someone definitive.

This is not a state though, where you can arrange to go, when you feel like having it integrating, because there is not something to integrate, neither anybody to have something integrated, since what you believe to be is a fantasy made from out of nothing.

In this context it is rather the nothingness of you, that is to be integrated with the nothingness of the empty breath – or more to the point, the belief that you are someone definitive is to be undone by the empty breath, so there does not seem to be something obscuring, that no matter what you believe to be, you are not made from matter, astral energy or anything else but empty space – just like the empty breath.

The person the brain has fabricated to appear, as if it is you, will keep on saying, there must be something more. And if something more is what you want, you better forget about the duality hacks, as applying for example the empty breath, the belief that it is possible to be or have more is slowly but surely undone.

It is not about learning something but to unlearn everything
To sum it up, there is nothing to know, since that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. So although there seems to be so much to know, when appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, there is only one thing to know in regards to the formlessness of oneness, namely that there is nothing to know.**

Differences do not make a difference in the bliss of not believing to be someone

In a state of not-knowing* – for example, induced by the empty breath – the indifference to the experience that the brain fabricates of you as someone definitive means that there is not someone with a need to adapt to it. That is why it is so blissful. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is why the purpose of Alexius´ Enlightened NonTeachings is not to learn something new but to unlearn everything**. This is done by reading all of them – or flip through them – and apply one or more of the duality hacks until there is nobody to acknowledge, that the person fabricated by the brain is real, wherefore there is nothing but the bliss of being indifferent to the belief that you are someone definitive.

When you are connected with the empty breath bliss arises from being indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive.

But as the connection is a state of not-knowing*, there is not enough consciousness to be aware of the bliss, until a state of not-knowing is left in favour for the full consciousness of being someone definitive, where memories of the bliss, it is to be indifferent to this or any other consciousness, pop up.

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

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

What you believe in being does not exist
Should you wonder, who chooses to believe, that the image fabricated by the brain of someone definitive is you, or who has programmed the brain to produce this image, or who is connecting with the empty breath, or who is wondering about this, the answer is nobody, because the experience of being somebody, whether in a so-called spiritual or physical sense, is just like having a daydream within this experience. There is nobody in it.

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

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

Thus the empty breath and the other duality hacks are therefore just as dreamlike as anything else in the experience of being someone definitive, no matter what and where that seems to be. See also Whatever that you are aware of is an illusion because it requires more than one to be conscious of something.

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

There are lots of ways to appear as if you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, but there is no way to leave it because you are not in it. Just like within the context of such a world, a dreamer is not its a dream, and therefore not returning to its bed when the dream is over. Likewise, you do not return to the formlessness of oneness, when your apparent life in a capsule of time and space is over, because you never left it. That is not possible, because it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But contrary to the illusions – for example, being transformed into something more real by living in the now and/or coming from the heart – promoted by most so-called spiritual movements in fashion, the duality hacks do not attempt to transform anything but to expose that everything experienced to exist is made from out of nothing.

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

Though the experience of world where there seems to be more than one seems to hide there is no more than that which is one, the experience of such a world is bound to end, because that which is one is formless and therefore without end.

And as what you pretend to be, you are not, that which is you does not end, when the experience of you as someone in a capsule of time and space is over. Furthermore, until then it is much fun pretending to be what and where you are not,**** as absolutely no harm comes from that.

APPENDIX:
As Alexius continuously goes back and forth between nothing and something there might be a mix up in description of a state of not-knowing and its bliss of nothing versus its after-effect and the happiness of something, which comes from returning from a state of not-knowing with the slate wiped clean and thus in the default mode of a basic self, that automatically is in sync with the brain and thus rewarded with shots of happiness.

Especially, because there is not conscious enough in a state of not-knowing to be aware of it, so his description of it is based on the memories popping up when he has returned to the conscious experience of being someone. Also, because he momentarily turns into the special self and the stress that this entails.

It should also be pointed out that the directions of how to connect with the empty breath mostly are geared towards the special self, that can use the stress from always having to know it is to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. The basic self, on the other hand, is so laid-back that it has no need to know what it is and therefore not far from saying ´Dunno.´ Doing so, the basic self does not perceive feeling fulfilled as better than depressed, or being right to be better than wrong, because nor those or any other feeling is perceived as something. Consequently, there is nothing to hide the bliss of emptiness.

This does not mean that feeling of anger or love, for example, does not pop up but that no feeling is perceived to make a difference. Thus they all uncover the same bliss of nothing.

Read more about saying ´Dunno´ in ´I know what it is´ versus ´It is what it is´ versus ´Dunno what it is´, the basic and special self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one, and the after-effect of a state of not-knowing in the article From the bliss of not-knowing to the happiness of serving.


*) You can read much more about a state of not-knowing in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss or in the articles of this hack – especially Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath.

**) This does not mean that you should avoid learning and knowing something, or being and having more when it comes to the practical aspects of appearing to be someone definitive. Yet there is no need to think about it when connected with the empty breath because its indifference to differences makes it impossible to make choices, so in its flow, you are having the belief in being someone special undone, while enjoying the excitement of this belief to its fullest.

NOTE: This article is the first one of hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

+ 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, provided there is a willingness to forget what you believe to be. The image is grabbed from the web.

If not perceiving what you read 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 frustration coming from the perception in being special and you do not try to edit or transform your feeling of desperation, the raw energy of it automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath. Since it is nothing and your current experience of something is processed by the brain from what it did imagine to receive from a gap in nothing one second ago (read more about that here), the take-off to the empty breath only takes one second.

In other words, when you connect with the empty breath, you go one second back in linear time to the nothingness that is unprocessed into something by the brain.  From there, the brains rendering of nothing into a world of something looks the same, but it is not perceived to be something and therefore not confirming you to be someone. Hence you are in the bliss of nothing.

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

In linear time, it may take a few more seconds, or many years, before there is nothing but the bliss of emptiness because out of reflex you probably try to force the breath through the tensions in the body, instead of going with the flow of the empty breath. It may feel as if you are fighting with the empty breath about how to breathe.

This fight, however, is solely between what you perceive to be you and an intruder because the empty breath is not intruding you. That is not possible. It does not see you as someone made of solid elements, but of emptiness just like itself. So when you stop fighting nothing, the empty breath goes through the tensions, caused by the thoughts and feelings you have excluded from your awareness by hiding them in the body, as they are nothing.

To get to this point, you must be willing to not stop the breath from going through the painful areas of the body. In this process, you may use professional healthcare services to relieve the body from spasms and headaches, for example, because the empty breath is not healing the body – only the belief that there is someone there.

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

Having passed the apparent physical and emotional obstacles, you turn into nobody. It may at first feel like the empty breath sets off from an engine in the abdomen as if it is an inner breath that in a slow fashion pumps air from there to extract the body (read more about that here), whereafter it returns to the engine which seems to take its time before it pumps it out again without any concept of being inside and outside of a body.

Despite that this is nothing which extracts and contracts nothing, it is in a world where everything is experienced as something also experienced to be that. It may be experienced as if you having fun surfing yin-yang like waves in the rhythmic flow of the empty breath, or being everywhere and nowhere in the sound of it, or joyfully moving with the swing of it, or being still in the abstractness behind its rhythmic flow. Read more about that in What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?

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

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

However, the ways described in this article and the other ones in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing are generally not geared for the basic but special self. That is because most are drawn in by the excitement they imagine to get from being special, rather than the pure happiness, they automatically receive when being basic, because the latter will not make them essential in a world where being special, bitchy and having something extraordinary is the standard. Read more these two kinds of self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

If not focused but defocused, all the elements used to construct what you believe to be blur out. Hence they do not seem to be something, and you, therefore, not different from the nothingness where the empty breath resides. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

So although being special brings about stress and being basic results in relaxation, almost everybody does their best to establish themselves as somebody special in a mundane or so-called spiritual way. Thus hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing is mostly about using stress and speedy thoughts as a take-off to the empty breath. In regards to the basic self, it is not the stress of being somebody but the relaxation of being nobody, that ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

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

So when you want to see the world as it is and not as you imagine it could be, and you sense it is your own hand that stops you from doing so, you automatically remove it. Hence it is the built-up frustration and the realisation it is caused by your own hand, that makes you take it away so you can see the world as it is.

Having had enough of something ignites a take-off to the empty breath and the bliss of nothing
The process in the above box, generally speaking, 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 special and therefore to hide that it is a fantasy made from nothing.

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

You may not only sense the bare feet that have made the footprints in this photo but also the body they belong to. Yet there is no feet or entity in the image, and nobody makes footprints like those. Hence what you sense is a construction of thoughts. Read more about that here. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you have had enough of the confusion that comes from this perception, you loosen the grip on the selected thoughts, making it up. Thus you start to see that being special is a daydream. When you are fed up by that, your frustration ignites a take-off to the empty breath. In the connectedness with its nothingness, there is not somebody to perceive that what you experience makes you special or anything at all. This does not mean that you disappear but that you are not attributed with a specific meaning.

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

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

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

And this happiness does not come from what you experience to be and have but from being in sync with the brain (see hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one), there is no need to perceive any experiences as something special. Thus they seem so unimportant, that, every now and then, there does not appear to be something to hide the bliss of nothing. In other words, you automatically and very quickly go back and forth between a state of not-knowing and the conscious experience of being someone. See To be nobody and yet somebody.

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

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

In other words, when you are totally fed up with being controlled by the thoughts and feelings, you have sought out yourself to form a belief system of how to be special, you automatically leave it. Not in the sense that you give up, let be or surrender because that is based on being special. But in the sense that the unedited frustration ignites a take-off to the empty breath and in its nothingness there is not something to define you as special anymore.

Are you confused about how to connect with the empty breath? If so, do not try to clear up the turmoil but go with the flow of it so its unedited energy can ignite a take-off to the empty breath. Check out The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness if you want to read more about that. Read What and where are the inner and outer senses in the case this is what you want to dig into.

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

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 hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

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 state of not-knowing which after-effect is perfect moments. They are not perfect in the sense that there is nothing wrong, but that everything right and wrong or whatever is perceived as it is what it is, so nothing is right or wrong.

The best of the above approaches to use is the one that suits you the most. If it changes from day-to-day, that is the way to go 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.

Alexius is not full of light but of nothing, as there is no more than the formlessness of 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 sun does never go up and down – it is a deception

_IGP4777_78_79_80_81-Edit

The sun does not go down, things do not get smaller in the horizon, and the Earth is not flat, even though it looks like that from the perspective of someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That is why you are bound to feel empty if believed to be someone specific. The solution to feeling empty is therefore not to fill up the emptiness but to undo belief in being someone definitive.

An enlightened (in the sense of the enlightenment of that which is one) never ask ´who am I?´, because there is no doubt there is no more than that which is one and therefore not a world where there seems to be more than one – regardless it appears to be astral and whatnot. Consequently the enlightened has no need for communities, discussions, so-called interesting exchanges or dialogues, sending love or anything else to make it appear as if there is someone specific there. The enlightened does not believe but pretend to be someone.

NOTES:

SH Enlightenment does not give you more, because there is no more than that which is one

There is always something wrong with the moments as it is. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In order to appear as better, the unenlightened generally finds something wrong with the present moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
When you are in the rain, you get wet, so wet is what you are in this very moment as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. End of story!

If you hate getting wet, then you are wet and full of hate. And if you worry about the rain and your open windows at home, you are a wet and hateful person concerned about the future at this moment – nothing more and nothing less. Period.

Maybe due to some ideas or conventions of yours, you are not allowed to hate. So in order to not feel the hate as yours, you exclude it by blaming somebody or something else for causing it. If you are a little bit more advanced, you may try to explain the feeling of hate from a metaphysical point of view, as if it is about transforming negative energy into positive. But this explanation is just another way of disguising, that you want to escape the moment as it is.

You may also try to escape feeling the moment as it is by thinking you are detached from feelings – that they are just something you observe – while the truth is that you deny them, and therefore never are present with the moment as it is.

Detachment is a natural attribute of someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, but it cannot be replicated by the unenlightened

Imitating the tropics by wearing a summer cap and a t-shirt, will not make you warm, if you are living in a cold climate. The warmth does not come from these attributes. Likewise the enlightenment of that which is one is not bid welcome by wearing special clothes, meeting special people at special places, sitting in special postures and whatnot. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Detachment is a natural attribute of someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. But in this enlightenment, all being is erased, as it takes more than one to be something and there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is the end of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one, so those who assume they are and have something important do not go there, as that will leave them with nothing.

So they rather prefer to imitate the attributes, they have read one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has – for example detachment – assuming this will make them able to add the qualities of enlightenment to their being and therefore expand their consciousness.

The enlightenment of that which is one is one perpetual present, so it cannot be brought back in a world of linear time.

But the enlightenment of that which is one does cannot expand anything, because it has nothing, as to have something requires more than one. For the same reason, the enlightened does not really remember what it is. One thing though is crystal clear: There is no more than that which is one, so a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. This memory, however, is of no interest to those who want to expand their consciousness, so that it seems as if they are and/or have more than others.

Physically speaking you cannot be together with the person on this pic in this very moment, but if the pic seems to trigger an attraction in you, and you devote yourself to that, your world may start to crack. Through the cracks you will sense, what you are really attracted to, namely the spirit of that which is one.

Physically speaking you cannot be together with the woman you probably perceive to be in the image, but if she seems attractive to you, and you devote yourself to that, your world may start to crack. Through the cracks you will sense, what you are really attracted to, namely something less tangible. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
If you think or feel, that you are in love with just one person, you are wrong. What you are experiencing is not love but attraction. The nature of love is to love everything, whereas attraction is single-minded. But there is nothing wrong with following the latter, provided you do not try to change it into a love relationship.

Attraction in itself is a gateway to a less tangible world because that is where the not so tangible feeling of attraction comes from. It is not important what the form, that you feel an attraction towards, looks like. What matters is, that you really indulge in the attraction and totally devote yourself to the object of your attraction. This might lead to sex, which experience wise also is part of a less tangible world – especially orgasm – but that is another story.

Because I am not talking about approaching the object of your attraction, but simply remain in the attraction itself by letting your mind being sucked into the desire for the object of your attraction, so that the flow of it leads to a lofty state of mind, where you do not bother about physicality.*

You and the one you are attracted to may be worlds apart physically and mentally speaking, or the other one may not even notice you or it is simply not possible to be together due to social conventions. But that is good. Because on no account it is about trying to manifest a relation* with the object of your attraction – if it happens so be it – but to follow an attraction so intense, that the world of the outer senses cracks and the world of the inner senses comes crawling out of them.

The world of the inner senses is in no way the same as the formlessness of oneness. Yet it is a gateway to it, provided you do not mistake the inner senses for spirituality but perceive it as a less tangible level of a world defined by time and space.

The above about attraction also applies to repulsion or other emotions. Devotion is the key.

No appearance in the world is perfect or will ever become perfect, but if you devote yourself to whatever appearance, that you may feel attracted to, you will become, what you already are, namely the perfection that makes it possible to perceive imperfection.

Devotion makes the world fade away – or rather your belief in it. What remains is that which is real. You do not need a guru or a mantra to be devoted. You just need to follow your natural instinct of losing that which is not you. This automatically happens, when you devote yourself to whatever you are deeply attracted to – it may be a mundane thing like a cat, the body of a person, a specific video game, a sunset or something less mundane like an angel.

In a way, the kick starter to writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings was an attraction to the body of a young woman, who was changing her clothes in front of Alexius on a sunny trip in the Mediterranean Sea. Instead of being ashamed of his physical attraction to a woman much younger than him, he dived deep into the flow of the attraction. Physically speaking nothing happened between the woman and him and he has never seen her again. But later that day, there was a breakthrough to the voice behind Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

This voice is not physical being but rather transparent. It can be compared to an ascended master, but not one of those ´rosy´ ones, who want you to help them make a merry-go-round world. Gudruång – spoken with a soft ´d´ and ending in an echo of the enlightenment of that which is one – that Alexius has named this energy, has no need of saving the world. On the contrary, the purpose is to undo the belief in the world, including astral ones and whatnot.

Ultimately the world where we appear to be is an illusion, also Gudruång, Alexius and you. There is nothing but the formlessness of that which is one. But while we appear to be in a world defined by time and space, we all seem to be somebody definitive, so in that context, Gudruång and Alexius are talked about as two different appearances, but in reality, they do not exist as two, neither as one, because it takes more than one to exist and there is no more than that which is one.

Alexius does not force his will upon his cats, but they often choose to follow it. This does not mean they are channeling him or following a higher voice. But that they sense he wants to take care of them in the best way possible, as if they are a part of him.

Likewise Gudruång wants to take care of Alexius, as if we they part of each other, although – just like Alexius and his cats – they are very different in terms of appearances but not in terms of content.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are not channelled from Gudruång. It is rather that Gudruång is writing them without his personality interfering with it. Ideally speaking it is like that, but as Gudruång does not know the English language, the writings depend on Alexius knowledge of it, and as the formlessness of oneness is wordless, he has to search for words he can use for something that cannot be expressed.

When he is short of words and still want to go on, part of an article may be coloured by words from his personality – especially the endings, because he his a personality is conditioned to look for a happy ending. However, it seems that a happy ending for Gudruång is when there is no memory of beginning and end.

Light, bliss, peace, stillness. consciousness or whatever can be experienced is a transitory state to that which cannot be experienced, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

PART 3:
Alexius felt the usual panic the other night when he, like so many times before, seemed to be at the edge of dying. This time, however, the panic attack was very short. Maybe because he knew from before, that the tangible appearance of Alexius always seems rise again – or because he remembered from several times being in this transitional phase, that it is such a relief when the tangible world fades out. But probably most of all because he wants to completely undo the belief in being someone definitive so that there is not something appearing to hide that which he is.

As it takes more than one to interpret something as a problem, the problem is gone when the belief in being and having more than that which is one is undone.

That being said, such a belief also has its moments. When he was willing to undo this belief and his body was about to pass away, there was another appearance, who seemed to want him to remain in the world. His cat, that he sensed somewhere in the distance, was crying out loud as if it was saying ´come back´.

He cannot know, what is going on in a cat, apart from what he projects onto it, and as he liked the projection of his cats begging him to come back, he indulged in the experiences the brain slowly started again to produce of him as someone in a body. The next thing he remembers is, that he could feel his cat purring, while it was laying close to his body.

Appearing to be back in a tangible world, he accepted his choice and started dealing with the practicality of it. His cat needed food – maybe that was the main reason it was worried about Alexius – and so did the body of Alexius.

Feeding the bodies has, of course, nothing to do with ultimate reality, but to get there he starts where he appears to be, namely together with his cat – and being together with someone is to be very close to that which is one.

There is nothing outside of reality, neither inside, because reality is that which is one.

Because he did not leave that which is one on his own. That is not possible. Well, it is not possible to leave it at all, but it is possible to imagine, that there is more than one so that you can leave it together with another one. Consequently, you return as you believe to have left it, namely appearing to be together with another one.

It does not matter if it is you and your cat or somebody else or just you and another thought. As long as you leave a world where there seems to be more than in a way where you appear to be more than one, you undo your imagination of such a world the way you originally made it. This hack, namely hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one, is the last of the duality hacks.

About alone together and the enlightenment of that which is one, see also ´Alone together´ you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.


*) The message of this is not, that you always must avoid having a physical relation. There is a season for everything.

Enlightenment of that which is one and the fear of it

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All articles in this blog arecolored by my personality.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The enlightenment of that which is one is unexplainable
When the belief in being Alexius momentarily was undone and the enlightenment of that which is one was bid welcome, he had never seen a black hole before (and fortunately he did not see it in the enlightenment of that which is one, as otherwise, he would have bounced back to a world defined by time and space), so describing the entrance to that which is one as a black hole is done in retrospect. And calling it an entrance is a metaphor because there is neither an entrance or an exit to that which is endless.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • This article about the enlightenment of that which is one and the fear of it shall in no way be taken as my thoughts about the truth, or some conclusions I have made based on experiences, readings or lectures.

+ Being and seeing something is not real, nor is dying

In a world where there seems to be more than one, everything is experienced to be separated from each other. But since it requires more than one to experience this and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, the experience is not real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
If this article is experienced to be written by somebody and read by somebody else, you believe it is possible to be and have more that which is one. But as oneness is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one, so this experience is not real, nor is any other experience since it takes more than one to experience anything.

When a world where there seems to be more than one is believed to be real, this belief seems to hide that which cannot be believed, namely the formlessness of oneness.

For the same reason, there is no one in a world where there seems to be more than one. Just like within the context of such a world, although you may experience there is somebody in a dream you appear to have, it is an illusion. Not even yourself are there. You are in your bed.

Since the formlessness of oneness is one perpetual present, a dream of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one ends the very same moment it starts. That is why it is not possible to have a conscious experience of being in such a world unless you hold onto your memories and thus seem to establish a difference of time.

In a world of linear time, however, nothing seems to last, so everybody fears the end of what they appear to be. Thus they invent concepts like heaven, that makes them appear to go on as a better version of themselves in a better world, where they are part of something bigger.

But as that which is you is no different from that which is one, and as it takes more than one to be anything somewhere, that which is you is nowhere. In other words, the experience of being somewhere, despite where that might be, is make-believe. Having this belief undone may seem to take a while you appear to be someone in linear time. And so what. Time is an illusion!

_IMG3889-Edit

By focusing on different parts of this image, you have experiences that seem to differ from each other, The belief that it is possible to be and have more than one is, therefore, upheld, and also that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you do not exist any more than the persons in this image. They are not real. There is no room for them in the electronic media that makes them appear to be there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
As it takes more than one to achieve something, there is nothing to accomplish in that which is one. It is only in a world where there seems to be more than one does this seems possible. Yet nothing that is real is accomplished, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

As it takes more than one to exist, existence must be outside of that which is one, but since there is nothing outside of it, nor inside it, as that calls for more than one, nothing exist.

For the same reason that which is you is not in a world where there seems to be more than one, nor is such a world inside of that which is you or anywhere else. Just like a dreamer is not in its dream, nor is the dream in the dreamer or anywhere else. Hence it is not knowing what and where you are, that reveals the formlessness of oneness. Not in a sense, that it is seen or realised. Only what is outside of oneness can be viewed or realised – and there is nothing outside of it since it has no beginning or end.

What actually is revealed you cannot know since the revealed is that which is one and it takes more than one to know something.

If you do not try to hold onto any thought, but go with the flow of them, they do not seem to manifest something definitive. Consequently, you do not feel as if you are boxed in. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Believing to be someone definitive, you are probably used to get physical wellness from a good nights sleep, sex, fitness, yoga or massage, for example. But that is because the brain produces thoughts, that seem to imply you are in a body. This it is not able to do at the moment of death because it is running out of oxygen.

Thoughts are still produced, but as they no longer can be experienced to come from a specific self in a tangible body, the experience is not that you are someone definitive but someone who is going crazy.

That is if you are not in the habit of sorting out your disorientation but having its uncontrolled energy ignite a take-off to the empty breath because then you are accustomed to the emptiness of not-knowing, wherefore there is no one to be bothered from thoughts not adding up to something familiar. See hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

In that case, the rapid flow of thoughts is immediately replaced by a chaotic flow of feelings. And if a state of not-knowing is not left in favour of going down memory lane to find something well-known that can support the image of being someone definitive, everything that seems to be something is terminated by 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. Not being someone at all most often, however, is avoided by fearing something.

But very few get past the fleeting thoughts because they try to capture the ones that seem friendly and compile them into an experience of being a self in a tangible body. But as there is not enough oxygen to hold onto them and produce a conscious experience of being in a body, the satisfaction that comes from smoking, sex or something else that requires such a thing cannot be found. Thus it slowly dawns on you, there is no happiness to get because what you used to experience as you was make-believe. You feel stuck in nowhere and then panic sets in.

Any experience you believe to have – including to live and die – is a deception. It is not possible to experience anything at all, because it takes more than one to experience something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Yet it seems as if it is possible to have a dream where there appears to be more than one.

That which is you cannot be known, because it is no different from that which is one and it takes more than one to know something.

Even though there is no one in a dream, you insist on being someone in it and that your responses to it support this claim. But as everything in a dream has an end, so have the reactions, that seem to attest to you are someone in a physical body. However, if not holding onto those or anything else that defines you as someone definitive, there is no end.

PART 4:
If the volume of music is experienced to be too loud, you can turn it down – or shut it off. In similar ways, many other things in the world can be controlled. Not death though. It can be postponed but not stopped.

Yet the experience of death as the end of you will change if not fighting it but instead going with its flow, as that very abruptly undoes the belief in being someone definitive so that there is nobody gracefully falling into the formlessness of that which is one.

In other words, when not defining what appears to be dying, nothing returns to the formlessness of oneness.

IMPORTANT:
If you interpret anything in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings as if death is the way to return to that which is you or in any way a solution to your apparent problems, you are out of sync with them. Death is an illusion and thus not a solution to anything. Nor does anything experienced as mundane, spiritual and whatnot need a solution because any experience is an illusion, as it takes more than one to experience something and there is no more than that which is one.

In other words, if you throughout your apparent existence as someone definitive have not established a habit of entering a state of not-knowing, death does not undo the belief that it is possible to be someone definitive. On the contrary, it enhances it, because if you are not somebody there is nobody to die.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.1 Eyes cannot see.

+ What is not one is fake

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

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

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

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

You only see the world where you believe to be because the brain continually processes frequencies of nothing into something that mimics you as someone having a conscious experience of being amongst others, whether that seems to be in a physical or spiritual world. Read more about that in hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

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

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

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

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

Alternatively, you can choose to have the empty breath doing it for you (see hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone). Or you can be inclusive instead of exclusive, as that cancels out the apparent differences in your experiences, wherefore the basis for the belief in being someone definitive is gone (see hack #3.2 Life is inclusive and not exclusive).

You can also apply one or more of the other duality hacks, as they all cause a state of not-knowing in which there is nobody to believe you are somebody (read more about that in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one).

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

The brain though falls into a coma if you for more than 20 minutes, 45 minutes at most, do not have an ongoing internal conversation with it, as if you are someone in a world where there seem to be more than one. In other words, you cannot remain in a state of not-knowing. See hack #4.5 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

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

Nor is there any awareness of being in that which is one, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless – see hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

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

Any experience is made up

You must let appearances pass – including the appearance of time and you as a person – if you want to see that which is real.

You must let appearances pass – including the appearance of time and space – if you do not want to hide that which is real. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The construction of the personality that you experience yourself and others to have can be compared to what happens on Facebook. Based on what you like and indirectly what you do not like the algorithms of Facebook will calculate, what kind of personality you have, so the more you like, the more your personality is established.

In accordance with the personality Facebook has constructed you receive updates and adds, that confirms its definition of your specific personality. In this way, you will be more and more fixated in the points of views you already have of what is right and wrong, so that reality seems to be that you and those you consider to be like-minded are the good ones and others the bad ones. Facebook, however, does the same for those you consider to be wrong, so just like you they think, they are the right ones.

4When you hit ´like´ many times on for example tv shows, Facebook will bring you updates and adds within this category, but most likely it will also bring you adds for loosing weight and exercising, because from its database it knows, that people watching a lot of tv tends to be on the fat side.

As a consequence you will not only feel fat but wrong, as slim is supposed to be right – or if you already felt that, Facebook has confirmed your personality to be wrong. But as nobody wants to be wrong themselves, you blame Facebook or others for being wrong, so that their flaws can defined you as right.

From this follows all personalities are in the same boat sharing the belief, that they are right and others wrong. But as each personality is a fabrication and as that which is real is not fabricated, all personalities must be wrong, even though they consider themselves to be right.

To see that which is real, you must choose to ignore the updates from Facebook, which in this article is a metaphor for the conclusions of the brain. You cannot stop the thoughts, that seem to come from the brain. It is like trying to stop the clouds. Their substance is an illusion. Likewise, thoughts and feelings are just empty space.

When everything is perceived as the symbol of the same, everything becomes equally likeable – and so there is nothing to choose. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In other words, when you choose not to hang onto thoughts but let them pass, they cannot fabricate the substance called the personality, and so that which is you is no longer hidden. Choosing this is not a choice, as that involves a personality. Consequently, choosing this is to not choose.

One way of doing this is to perceive everything that you experience as not that which is you but symbols of it. That makes everything equally likeable, and so you do not need to choose what to like.

Your personality is stored in the cloud – and so what? Privacy is nothing but a means of the ego to make sure, that you appear as if you are separated.

Your personality is stored in the cloud – and so what? Privacy is nothing but a means for the special self to make sure, you appear to be better than others The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Your personality is just a bunch of info that you have in your head, but soon – if not already – it will instead be in your cell phone or another digital device alternatively. That is the of privacy. And so what? That something can be kept private is a concept of the special self, that it gladly helps you fighting for because it will uphold your personality as separated from others and the special self thrives from separation.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Whether the personality consist on info gathered in the head or on a cell phone is the same, because in both cases the info is received from the cloud. In the case of the cell phone from a digital cloud, where as the head gets its info from an analog cloud, that for example Carl Jung calls the collective unconscious.*

But it is not possible to be separated, because that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to be separated from something. In other words, what you seem to experience is all made up by you, because there is no more than that which is you since it is formless and therefore endless.

So it is all up to you how long you will go on being a part in your story of separation.

This playlist manifest you as a funky person. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This playlist makes you appear to be a hip person – at least to those who know the tracks on your list – so either it is so or you just want the list to make others think that it is. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:**
Your streaming playlist on for example Spotify, that you have put together with the help of its algorithms represents the music you like. But it also represents music you do not like because it is excluded from the list.

As most want to keep their playlist together in the way they made it, they do not want to switch to another system of streaming music – for example Tidal or Apple – if that results in changes of it.

Your personality has been fabricated in much in the same way as your playlist – and just like your physical appearance is not in your playlist or in the media playing it, that which is you is not in your personality or in the world where it appears to be.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings does not promise you more of anything, because that which is you is everything.

That which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, so it cannot be changed or modified, as it requires more than one to change anything. For the same reason, it is not possible to be or have anything. Yet you experience to be or have a personality. How is that possible? Any experience is possible when you believe that there is more than that which is one. It does not change anything though, because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

But having built a specific personality in a world where there seems to be more than one, you do not want to it to be moved into the formlessness of oneness, unless it can remain the same except being more free, loved and divine.

And as it takes more than one to have something, there is nothing to hide, that there is no more than that which is one, if you give nothing, because you can only give what you have.

This desire for more, however, is what seems to hide the formlessness of oneness, so as soon you do not listen to the voice of ego whispering, that there must be something more, there is no more to hide the formlessness of oneness, which always was and always will be, since formlessness is endless.

PART 4:
If you feel something is missing in music compressed into an MP3 file from for example Spotify, you can instead subscribe to Tidal where you can choose to hear the same music in a non-compressed version.*** If there is still a feeling of something missing, you can get better speakers, wires and whatnot, and if that is not enough to completely satisfy you, live music may be the way.

But no matter in what way and how good the music is presented, you will never be satisfied, if the experience of it is supposed to make you feel complete.

Genuine completeness cannot be felt. No experiences last, so by nature feelings are incomplete. Consequently, the world, that you feel you are living in, will always feel as if it is incomplete, and as the world mirrors you, so will you. Yet most go on searching for completeness in the world as if it is possible to find something everlasting there.

The belief that there is more than that which is one is the cause of the constant dissatisfaction with a world where there seems to be more than one. You can never get enough. Always you must look for more.

Nothing everlasting needs to be found though because you already is that which is everything and never ends, namely the formlessness of that which is one. You have just blinded yourself with the belief, that there is more to be and have than that which is one. When you stop believing that, you will not look for more. It is just not possible to look for more, when not believing to be someone definitive, because the formlessness of you is endless, so there is no more than that.

Phasing out the personality

Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

According to science the world, that is experienced to be substantial, is nothing but empty space. Thus what you and others appear to be is make-believe – including being spiritual and whatnot.

To be or not to be is only a question in a world defined by time and space. In the formlessness of oneness there is no existence or consciousness, since that requires more than one.

In other words, that which is you is not in a world defined by time and space, neither is anything else. That is why nothing needs to be done, understood or learned in the context of undoing the belief that you are ´there´. On the contrary, because the undoing of this belief comes from not having an investment in doing or understanding anything at all since that leaves no ´I´ with a need to be someone specific.

When there is no attachment to a specific personality – whether it appears to be your own or somebody else´s – the apparent problems in a world defined by time and space is not experienced to be personal. This does not necessarily mean, that nothing is being done about anything, but that nobody is doing it.

Insisting on doing things in your own way and speed, you can never be happy, because only the special self has its own way, and that never makes you happy (read more about that here). Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

And so there is no ´I´ using an apparent success, realisation or conclusion to further built up the personality. Instead, results are used to grasp, that regardless of no personal investments in the achievement of specific goals, something appears to be accomplished.

In oneness there is no way of your own, neither anything to open up to, since that requires you to be someone definitive and oneness is formless. Hence it is only in a world experienced as if it is defined by time and space, that you appear to have a way of your own and something to open up to.

But as oneness is formless it is endless, so there is no world defined by time and space. In other words, insisting in going your own way in your own speed is to believe, you are someone in a world that does not exist. Such a belief entails suffering.

Hence there is no need to hang onto a specific personality in order to do things in your own way and speed, and so the belief that you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space can safely be phased out.

Nobody has a problem, when the personality is not used to enhance the believe in being someone.

As there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless, it is, of course, meaningless, to talk about phasing out the personality – or to talk about anything at all.  Yet in the context of believing to be a person in a world defined by time and space, it is beneficial not to enforce this belief but phasing it out. That is, if you do not want it to hide, that the formlessness of that which is one is no different from that which is you.

Tin order for you to win somebody else must lose so the loser can function as a contrast showcasing you as the winner. If this contrast, however, is included*, the apparent difference between winning and losing makes no difference. Hence there is nothing to define the personality as neither a winner or a loser, and so the belief that it is you is phased out. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

NOTA BENE:
The personality is constructed by excluding what is judged to be bad from what you believe to be by projecting it on somebody you perceive to be different from you, for example due to colour, culture, clothes or haircut. Hence they as the bad ones become a contrasting background for you as the good one. But to keep up this image of you as the good one, you must always look for something bad in a world judged to be outside of you.

If you, on the other hand, do not exclude what is judged to be bad by projecting it onto others, there does not seem to somebody who can attest to you as the good one. Hence you cannot uphold the belief in being someone definitive and so nothing appears to hide the formlessness of oneness. That is if nothing else is excluded. In most cases, though not excluding something at all but including everything does not happen overnight. No worries. Time is an illusion, so the moment you are willing to include everything*, the personality is phased out – also if this appears to happen over time in a world perceived to be outside of you.


*) See Inclusiveness is a state of not-knowing – and that is pure bliss about how to include a contrast to entering a state of not knowing, and check Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one about willingness.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #3.4 Phasing out the personality by not being exclusive.

To NOT exclude is to exclude the belief in being someone definitive

Exclusiveness is the foundation of appearing to be someone definitive in a world of duality, as it favours one side of a contrast over the other, whereas inclusiveness cancels out the apparent difference in contrasts. Consequently you do not appear to be someone definitive but nobody and so the foundation for the belief in separation is gone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The foundation of your appearance as someone definitive in a world of duality is exclusiveness. Fist one side of a contrast is judged to be better than the other. Secondly, the bad side is excluded by projecting it on somebody, so that you appear to be good at the expense of somebody else, who appears to be bad. Inclusiveness, on the other hand, cancels out the apparent difference of contrasts, so that the more there is included the less you appear to be someone definitive and the less there appear to be others, which means the foundation for the belief in separation is fading out.

PART 1:
Appearing to be someone in a world of duality you cannot be happy all the time. A feeling needs to be contrasted by its opposite in order to be experienced as something specific. You would not know happiness if not for sadness. In other words, as high as you want to go, as low you must be prepared to fall.

The wish to have one feeling only is a memory from non-duality – a twisted memory though because there are no feelings in non-duality, as it is that which is one and it takes more than one to have a feeling about something.

For the same reason, there are no contrasts in non-duality. Yet a world of duality cannot be experienced without them. And that is why non-duality cannot be implemented in a world of duality. In such a world you must have darkness to have light, war to have peace, negativity to have positivity and so on.

Furthermore, it is not possible to experience light without the exclusion of its contrast darkness and vice versa. The nature of non-duality, however, is not to exclude but include, so if you try to implement it in a world of duality it cannot be experienced, because inclusion cancels out the opposites of a contrast so that there is no difference to perceive and therefore no duality.

Being a person in a world of duality is effortless, the more its apparent differences is not perceived to make a difference, because then separation is not confirmed and so its outcome, suffering, does not need to be avoided.

If the contrasts of you are not kept separated but allowed to meet they cancel each other out. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If the two sides of the contrasts, that seem to define you, are not kept separated but allowed to meet, they will cancel each other out – and so you are free from being defined as either good or bad. Instead, you are nobody. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In other words, inclusion undoes contrasts and therefore the belief in duality, so the more both sides of contrasts are included – instead of keeping them apart like for example Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – the less you appear to be someone definitive in a world of duality.

But to include something you must first exclude it. If you want to experience love, for example, you exclude what you do not want to experience, namely hate, so that it can serve as a background for an experience of love. It is not necessary though to be conscious about the part of a contrast that you exclude, which in this case is hate because love could not be experienced without it.

So by fully devoting yourself to love, the other side, hate, is included as well, which means they no longer form a contrast. Therefore you neither have love or hate but indifference.

To resume, by using the premise of duality, namely contrast, you can have the belief in it undone by not keeping the two sides of a contrast separated but letting them join so that they do not form a contrast to each other and therefore do not confirm a world of duality anymore.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you want to remain in a world of duality, you must always hold back, so that you do not lose yourself in the intensity of an experience. Finding mistakes or claiming that you need time to process what is happening are common ways of holding back so that you do not lose yourself in the intensity of the moment. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

PART 2:
Instead of trying to avoid the thoughts and feelings, that seem to disturb you, experience them so much that you are nothing but what you want to avoid. As a thought or a feeling needs a contrast in order for it to be experienced as something specific, what you want to avoid will simply vanish, when this is all that is experienced.

As one side of a contrast defines the other, you cannot have one without the other, when you feed and play into the experience of being someone definitive in a world of duality. So no contrast = no definition = no experience = no duality = non-duality.

Be aware though that if you for example experience hate to the extent that you are nothing but that, not only hate will go away but also its contrast love, as they are two sides of the same coin.

If you lose yourself in love, there is nobody to love anybody. Hence there is nobody to believe in duality. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you want to undo the belief in duality, do not hold back feelings or slow down thoughts, but follow the flow of them all the way through. In this way the experience of sex, for example, will be so intense, that it obliterate itself, because in the ecstasy of it there is no room for anything else, and nothing can be experienced without a contrast. Hence there is no experience, and therefore no experiencer to believe in duality.

In other words, each feeling has a prize, and the prize of love is hate. You cannot have one without the other. And if you have none of them you have nothing, which is the reality of duality. There is nothing in a world of duality because non-duality is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that. Hence acknowledging to have nothing, you are nothing, and there is not something appearing to hide non-duality.

Go with the flow and go all the way, if you do not want something to hide the formlessness of that which is you. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

PART 3:
Try imagining to pump up the volume of music until it is so distorted, that it cannot be perceived as music. And then go on imagining to pump it up until it is so loud, that there is nothing to hear. Hence there is not someone definitive to know this.

Going all the way does not result in something but that which is formless.

It is not a suggestion to actually do this but to imagine it until the mind cannot grasp it, because the mind is the gap* between the appearance of you as someone definitive and the formlessness of that which is you.

When there is no time to think what and where you are, there is peace. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

When there is no time to think what and where you are, there is joy. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

PART 4:
The story of a person is mostly a sad one – and fear based as well. In order to be in balance and not miss out on anything, a person reacts to everything as if it is driving a car with the brakes on – assuming that going slow there is more time to understand and process life.

Yet looking for more of anything does not result in joy but stress, whereas releasing the brake is pure joy because that comes from driving so fast, that there is no time to define what and where you are.**


*) Check out the article The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real for more about the gap, that initiated the appearance of a world where there seems to be more than one.

**) Be aware that the above is a metaphor, so when physically driving a car, you, of course, put on the brake when needed, so you are not stopping yourself from going with the flow of the drive, which is pure joy.


NOTE: There is more about going all the way by not being exclusive but inclusive in the next articles It is NOT about making a difference, Without contrasts, there is no duality, and so nothing seems to hide non-duality and Coming from the heart is a denial of that which is one. They are all part of hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

Being wrong feels great

PART 1:
What do you get, when you keep peeling off layers of an onion? Nothing. The same applies to peel off layers of the personality. It is there so that you can pretend, there is something where there is nothing. Hence you should not peel off its layers if you want to appear as if you are someone in a world of duality.

Nothing needs to be changed in the virtual world of a game you are playing in order for you to leave it, except the belief that you are there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Nothing in a world of duality – including whatever you believe to be – needs to be changed or transformed in order for it not to hide non-duality. It is the belief that you are in a world of duality, that needs to be undone. In the context of such a belief this can be compared to playing a game there. If you believe to be in its virtual world, returning to reality seems difficult, until this belief is undone.

Neither should you do that, if you want to undo the belief in duality. Layers are a basic element of duality, so if you take them seriously – and peeling them off is to take them seriously – you enhance the belief in duality. So if you do not want the belief in duality to hide non-duality, it is best not to deal with the layers of the personality, but how come you have chosen to believe, that you are a person in a world of duality.

Your choice of belief is based on what is in it for you, so as long as you believe, the apparent endless possibilities in a world of duality gives you more than non-duality, which only has no more to offer than the peace of oneness, you will keep looking for more in a world of duality.   

As that which is you id no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as what is formless is endless there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to have fun or anything else, as to have something requires more than one. Yet it is possible to imagine a world where there seems to be more than one and have fun there, provided thar you do not foget it is not real. It is just something you pretend. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness is endless, there is no more than that which is one. In other words, it is not possible to have fun, be sad or anything else, as to be or have something requires more than one. Yet it seems possible to imagine, that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one and therefore can have fun and much more – just like within the context of such a world, it is possible to imagine being something you are not in a role-playing game, which can be quite entertaining provided you do not forget, that whatever you experience there is make-believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The question, therefore, you should ask is if more money, more fame, more respect, more freedom, more peace, more love, or whatever you are trying to achieve more of in a world of duality results in more satisfaction. Very few, however, want to examine, if being and having more feels right, because if the answer is no, they are wrong, and this is to be avoided at any price.

In reality, though it feels great to acknowledge, that I am wrong in believing, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one because this means there is nobody with a need to fit into a world of duality by participating in the race for more.

You do not make a difference in the world, because that which is you is not there

A world where there seems to be more than one appears to be like a game, that is rigged. To work around this, you must remember that the game is scripted by you. This is not easy to remember because part of the script is to forget. Yet remembering that you are the author, you know that being someone definitive is a fiction. Hence nothing needs to be undone except the belief, that it is real. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Your appearance as someone definitive in a world of duality can be compared to watching a movie, that has been scripted by yourself. This, however, you tend to forget, because it is in the script that you do so. But if you manage to remember that you are the author, you know that it is all make-believe. Hence no changes are needed to leave duality but the undoing of the belief, that it is real. The animation is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
To assume that you are in charge and can change what you appear to be in a world of duality can be compared to thinking, that you are in charge of the world in a video game and can change the character you pretend to be there. That you change something in such a game is an illusion, because nothing can happen there except what is programmed to happen, so every change remains within the script of the world.

The real world can never be realised, if you believe to be in a scripted world. In such a world, however, it is possible to realise that reality is not scripted.

In other words, there is nothing you can change in a world of duality but how to perceive it. Well, you can also choose not to perceive it, so that your belief in duality does not appear to hide non-duality.

The conclusion, however, is not that in non-duality you are in charge because in non-duality there is no more than that which is one and therefore nothing to be in charge of. Neither is there a need for anything, as non-duality is formless and therefore everything, so you lack nothing. That is, if you do not start to wonder, what if there is more than that which is one.

We do not see the world as it is, but as we think it is. Furthermore we do not think. We project specific meaning on specific frequencies that seems to pass by and then we conclude those frequencies are our thoughts. But they are all meaningless frequencies. Life has no need for meaning. It is everything and it takes something outside of everything to have a meaning about it … and there is nothing else than everything. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

We do not see the world as it is, because there is no world. It is just something that we think. Furthermore, we do not think. We project specific meaning on meaningless frequencies and conclude those frequencies are our thoughts. And then we divide ´our´ thoughts into right and wrong, good and bad so that they appear to be tangible and the world they symbolise, therefore, seems to be real. But it a fabricated reality. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Duality can be said to be a world on top of non-duality founded on the idea, that there is more than that which is one. But as the oneness of non-duality is formless it is endless, there is no world outside of it. Hence no matter how much more you seem to become and get outside of non-duality, it is make-believe.

This does not mean, that you must stop looking for more in order to have this make-believe undone, because if you perceive more as a symbol of that which is no more than one, namely non-duality, regardless how much more you appear to be or have, you are still a symbol of non-duality, because without it you could not imagine to divide it into a world of duality.

When you are a symbol of non-duality in a world of duality, you are not there – just like within the context of duality no matter what you appear to be in a game you are playing, your appearance there is not real. It is just a symbol.

Check hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life if you want to read more about seeing everything in the world as symbols.

You have no choice but to be that which is you, because it is that which is one. Yet you can choose to believe you are not the formlessness of that which is you but an appearance defined by time and space. This choice though does not change anything, because there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You have no choice but to be the formlessness of that which is one because what is formless is endless, so there is no more than that which is one and consequently nothing to choose. Yet it seems possible to imagine, that one can choose not to be formless and instead appear as if it is someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. This imagination though does not change anything, because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:
To feel horny or full of compassion is the same illusion in the sense, that it takes more than one to feel something and there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

This does not mean that feelings should be denied when the experience is that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Doing that would be to deny, it is you who have chosen to ignore that which is one in order to experience a world where there seems to be more than one because you believe its apparent endless possibilities beat the one and only possibility of that which is one, namely peace.

It is not possible to choose that which is you but to not choose what is not you

Denying that this is your choice, it appears to be hidden, and therefore out of reach. It is therefore in your own best interest not to deny it and play along with the desires it entails of being and having more than that which is one because this will make it possible for you to see if this actually brings about more fulfilment.

In other words, if becoming and having more does not bring about lasting satisfaction, you know that feeling dissatisfied is your own choice. And that is all you need to know in order to make a new choice because it happens automatically when you have acknowledged being wrong.

You may think the above is a little vague and that you need to do more, but that is most likely because you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, and it is founded on the need for more.

Ultimately there is no choice, as that requires more than one, and that which is you is no different from that which is one.

In the formlessness of oneness, however, there is no need for more, because formlessness is endless and therefore everything. So as there is no more than the formlessness of oneness and as it takes more than one to choose something, there is nothing to choose.

Hence any choice will result in you still appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. That is unless you choose not to appear as if you are someone there, which is done by not choosing anything. And that happens automatically, when you see that being and having more does not result in more fulfilment.

PMT Those looking for peace are full of shit

_IGP1815-Edit-Edit-2

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

PART 1:
Love and peace can only be experienced if contrasted by their opposites, so if you experience love and peace, your experience is founded on hate and war.

You cannot have one without the other. All opposites are two sides of the same coin. So if you experience hate and war, you also have love and peace. In other words, you can just flip the coin, when seeing hate and war.

Only those believing to be a person in a world that is real, have dreams of everlasting peace. The reason they follow these merry-go-round dreams, that they mistakenly call spirituality, is to cover up, they are full of shit.

The apparent difference between of peace and war makes no difference to those, to those pretending to be someone definitive in the world**. They see it as part of the experience to pretend to be someone definitive be in a world where there seems to be more than one, as everything in such a world needs to be contrasted in order to be experienced.

Jesus, who the do-gooders often refer to around Christmas regarding peace, said: »I will not bring peace, but dissension, fire, sword and war«. In this way, the peaceful persons, who fight the shit in themselves by projecting it onto others, can see the war in themselves.

PART 2:
Only that which is one can be present. When there is more than one, there are more possibilities, and so you start imagining, what and where to be and have. This is not one perpetual present, but several versions of the present. They are not real, because reality needs not to be imagined. One perpetual present cannot be imagined, because it is that which is real. And there is nothing else than that which is real.

In a world where there seems to be more than one the foundation is not that which is one but more than that, so you can never be present there. But you can simulate the present by for example imagining to be in the moment. Such a moment consists of many things, both so-called good and bad, right and wrong, past and future and so on. It includes everything, you imagine at that moment, and it lasts as long as the imagination lasts, whereas one perpetual present ´only´ contains what is unimaginable and never ends.

Life, which is one perpetual present, excludes everything, that is not the formlessness of that which is one. This does not mean, it is exclusive, but as formlessness is endless, there is nothing outside of it, so it cannot include what is not there. In other words: One perpetual present includes everything, that is real.

You cannot be in one perpetual present, as it takes more than one to be somewhere. But you can stop being where you are not, namely in a world where there seems to be more than one. The way to stop this is to pretend to be there, because where you pretend to be you are not.

Thinking that you understand this, you have not understood anything but forgotten the world is based on the idea that there is more than one, and what is not one is not real. All that you can do in an unreal world is pretend to understand.

If you sense this, you will not feel good as a person, and you will not feel good as a non-person either. A non-person is that which is one and it has no feelings – as it takes more than one to feel something. Feelings are part of pretending to be someone definitive, so not feeling good is how to know, you are not a person.

Realising this, however, will not bring peace. There is nothing to get in a world, that is not ´there´. Yet this realisation will be remembered as being at peace. Not a peace though that you can experience. The peace you can know as a person in the world is contrasted by war. This peace has no contrast – it is a ´state´ of not knowing, and that is what and where you are, when you do not know, what and where you are.

Spirituality cannot be achieved, because it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to achieve something

Get physical!

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

PART 3:
The advanced spiritual seeker is trying to avoid peak experiences – via for instance meditation and tantra sex – based on the idea that in oneness everything is pure tranquillity. But that which is one can be compared to an unlimited stream of peak experiences, that change in such a speed, that there is no time for a person to differentiate them from each another, neither for a person to establish itself there, so nobody is experiencing them. That is why it is so peaceful.

The peaks travel from one point to another in no time, so no space is accumulated. That is why it is oneness. It has nothing to do though with the numbness you obtain via meditation, tantra, chanting, praying or other means of control, that is used to exclude what you judge to be mundane so that you seem to be a spiritual person in a state of bliss and detachment.

Being in such a state of mind, however, is often based on a wish to distance oneself from feeling the moment as it is and instead and float all over it rather than being wide awake and nothing bit this moment.

What can a spiritual seeker do?
The whole foundation of this question is misleading because there is no spirituality in a world defined by time and space – including astral worlds and anything else conceivable – because spirituality is formless and therefore endless. So as long as you appear to be in a world defined by time and space you better forget about spirituality and adjust to the ways of such a world.

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

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

PART 4:
Is it due to your power, that you do not fall off the earth? No, it is the force of gravity. Is it you, who controls breathing? No, a respiratory control centre at the base of your brain controls breathing. Is it you, who think? No, just like you are not the maker of gravity and the breath, neither are you the maker of thoughts.

Having a thought can be compared to seeing a cloud passing by, that for a moment may appear to be the image of a dog for example. But there is no dog. It is a hallucination – and so is the meaning of any thought that seems to pass by. They are just meaningless frequencies, that you try to inflict a meaning upon so that they seem to be specific thoughts of yours, and you, therefore, appear to be someone definitive.

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

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

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

In those cases – unless you are in a situation that needs physical presence – go with the flow and have your mind blown. So blown, that it does not know what is up or down, in or out or past or future leaving, so that there is nobody to think you are this and that. This is a perfect moment. It could also be an ignition of the empty breath, which you can read about in hack #4.4 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

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

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

NOTES:

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

Free to be no more than that which is one

To observe is to exclude, which is not possible, as there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To observe is to exclude, which is not possible, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
The oneness of life is not exclusive but inclusive contrary* to what is called life in a world where there seems to be more than one, as it is based on exclusion. First, you have to exclude the oneness of life by imagining it is possible to be outside of it and from there observe it in different angles so that each angle seems to reveal a different perspective
.

Hence oneness is experienced to be a dimensional world where there appears to be more than one. But as this experience requires constant movement, that excludes what you move away from, there seems to be a past and a future and that things in the past are forever lost.

Yet it is not possible to move or observe anything, as it takes more than one to do so, and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. It is, however, possible to think so.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You become definable as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one by excluding the experience of such a world from where the experience is fabricated, namely in the mind, so that the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one does not appear to be a fantasy of yours but a fact. But in order to appear as if you are someone there not everything is excluded from what you believe to be you. In fact you only exclude what is considered as bad, so you appear to be good others to be the bad – except your very special friends.

The only way out is to quit
In order for you to be defined as someone definitive, you exclude what is judged to be bad from your experience of being in a world where there seems to be more than one by blaming it for having caused you to feel bad. Hence whatever is judged to be bad is not your fault but somebody perceived to be outside of you. As this is a confirmation of separation you have hereby fenced off the oneness of life.

But to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, regardless what you appear to be (so-called spiritual or mundane), because the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, while any appearances in such a world are limited by time and space. You can compare it to playing a game like Monopoly. Driving a car in Monopoly is an illusion because everything in the world of Monopoly is virtual – also if you master this world and win everything.

Stuck inside the world of Monopoly. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you have taken one round of Monopoly, you are not finished. You keep on doing the exact same round. This is not to be understood as a metaphor for reincarnation, but that you keep on doing the same again and again – and even when you seem to be on the last steps of your journey, it starts all over again. There is no way out, but to stop playing the game.

No belief, no world to hide that which is unbelievable
The above about leaving the game, so that it does not appear to hide that which is real, does not mean, you have to quit the world just like that.** First of all, it is not the world, that you need to quit but the belief that it is real – and this includes what you consider to be spiritual. Secondly, there is no hurry. You can have your cake and eat it too if whatever you seem to experience due to what you have excluded is extended to also include the excluded. By doing so, you simulate real life, which is all-inclusive, and so every moment is a perfect moment.* Nothing is wrong or missing.

Hence there is nothing to search for, and thus nothing to feed your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one – and so there does not appear to be something hiding the oneness of that which is life.

Everybody wants to appear as if they are the good ones, and as being good means, you are better than others, you basically exclude others in order to be good. This is why the world may seem hopeless to you. But do not worry, hopelessness sets you free from the world. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Observing is founded on the idea that it is possible to exclude fragments of reality and fabricate an image based on your judgment of right and wrong. But as reality is that which is one part of it cannot be excluded. It seems, however, possible to use the power of oneness to imagine you have the power to split it up. Hence everything, that involves separation fences off that which is one.

Living in the now is one out of many ways to be exclusive. In this case you exclude the thoughts judged to be of the past or the future, so you to seem to experience a special state of mind called now. But it is just as fabricated, as the anything else in a world that is defined by what is excluded.

To be inclusive is the way of life but not of the world*
Not to separate is not easy in a world defined by time and space. To be defined as someone definitive there, you must separate yourself from what is considered not to be you. Appear as if you are spiritual, for example, everything considered not to be spiritual must be excluded from what you want to appear like, so that the apparent heaviness of an unspiritual world can serve as a background for highlighting you and like-minded as spiritual.

If you have realised, that the only sickness which needs to be healed is the belief that you are someone definitive** and start to use the world as a means to be inclusive and not exclusive, part of you may insist in not including everything – maybe justified by a body, that seems to be sick and to cure it something must be excluded from it.*

No worries. Just take care of the body.*** It cannot hinder you from being inclusive. As long as you also include what you exclude, you are only heading one way, namely to include that which is one.

When there is nothing to hope for, you are free. You may not want that freedom though, because what you are free from is the belief in being someone definitive and when that is undone, there is nothing to hide there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, the world and everything in it, including your children and whatnot are gone together with what you appeared to be there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When there is nothing to hope for, you are free****
When forgetting to be inclusive, desperation may set in, as it seems so hopeless appearing in a world limited by time and space. That is, until you realise, feeling hopeless is good news, because without hope there is nothing to keep you there. You are free to not believe a world defined by time and space can replace that which is you, namely the formlessness of oneness.

If you in the middle of feeling hopeless do not realise, this is the best you could have hoped for but instead feel frustrated, do not worry. Just include feeling hopeless and frustrated totally unedited in the present moment. Whatever is fully included looses its apparent dimension. Hence it is nothing in a world defined by time and space.

And as the inclusion of one feeling momentarily rubs off on so many others, there may be nothing left to feel, which means there is not something to block out the enlightenment of that which is one. But as you most likely hang onto feelings of loss – especially your identity – the enlightenment of that which is one is not bid welcome. Yet glimpses of it may be coming through.

This you can read more about in the article A reintroduction of enlightenment, inner and outer senses.


*) In hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss you can read more about inclusion as a way to undo the belief in separation versus exclusion as a way to enhance this belief.

**) Please do not understand quitting the world as a call to commit suicide. To quit the world is to stop believing, that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, whereas committing suicide enhances that belief.

***) You cannot choose to have the belief in being or having a body undone before honouring your choice of being or having a body, which is done by facilitating the body – for example by brushing its teeth and eating nutritional food. But it is not done by trying to become purer by forcing the body into weird stretches and whatnot, neither by over-exercising. Such ideas are conceived in the mind and should be dealt with there and not projected onto the body. Check hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough about the unfortunate belief of a body-mind connection where what you believe to be is the master of the body.

How to find peace

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NOTES:

  • Peace cannot be found and neither is it necessary, since that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness is endless there is no more than oneness, and therefore nothing to disturb its eternal peace. In other words, only someone who wants to hide the formlessness of oneness has an answer to this question or other questions like ´who am I´.

What requires more than one is not that which is one

It takes two to be together, and as you think you are separated from that which is one, it takes two to return to that which is one. Togetherness can also be between two parts of your personality. It is basically the same as it is all make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It takes more than one to be together in a world where there seems to be more than one, and because you think that you are separated from that which is one, it also takes more than one to return to oneness. But as being more than one actually is an imagination happening between parts of yourself, it is more correct to say that being alone together* is how you return to that which is one.

PART 1:
That which is one cannot be observed because it takes more than one to observe something. What can be observed is a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world, however, is not real, since that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than oneness. In other words, a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion.

The ego, therefore, rubs its hands every time you try to get rid of it, as by doing so you enhance the belief, that there is more than that which is one. It knows you will never get rid of it because you cannot get rid of something that is not there. Hence its ´life´ seems to be forever preserved when you are fighting it.

According to an article recently published in the journal Nature Communications a team split a single photon in half and transmitted it to two separate labs. Upon analysis, they found that the particle not only exists until its observed but that it never showed up in both labs at the same time. The particle you are not looking at ceases to exist.

Those who advise others to observe thoughts and feelings in order to be detached from them, worship the ego, because to observe or be detached from something makes an illusion appear to be real. The world only seems to be there, because you choose to believe the separation created by contrasts like right and wrong is real.

Contrasts is needed for something to appear as if it exists in the world.

Contrasts is needed for something to appear as if it exists. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If nobody is watching a movie, the world in it does not appear to exist.

Just like the world in a movie is an illusion created by the contrasts, that light seems to produce on the screen, a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be experienced without contrasts. Without them, there would not seem to be more than one. Neither would this article appear to be there if the black letters were written on black.

There must be a contrast between the letters and the background for them to be seen. There must be evil in the world for you to experience good. There must be hate so that you can feel love. You cannot have a god without a devil and so on.

In a world where there seems to be more than one you cannot have oneness, because then there would not seem to be more than one.

But contrast is an illusion. There is nothing outside of that which is one because it is formless and therefore endless, so it has no contrast. In other words, what has no contrast is that which is real – and reality cannot be seen, seeing something requires contrast.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, past and future are contrasting each other. There is nothing to contrast now, and so there is no now to experience in such a world. Those who claim, that there is, are serving the ego, who knows, that all searching is of a world where there seems to be more than one.

It requires more than one to be a father or to be something at all – also to search for something. And as reality is the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness is endless, what appears to be more than one is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It requires more than one to search for something, and the ego loves whatever takes more than one because that makes a world where there seems to be more than one appear as if it is real – and hence the ego as well.

As long as you seem to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot get rid of the ego. Fortunately, you do not need to get rid of it. Neither the ego, such a world or the one experiencing this is real, so there is nothing to get rid of.

How can you know what love feels like, if everybody love you?

Yet you must acknowledge all the contrasts in a world where there seems to be more than one – war and peace, love and hate and so on – while you appear to be someone there. Otherwise, there is no world to experience, and you need to experience it, as it takes more than one to undo the experience of it.

In that which is one it is always the same day. The same applies to a world where there seems to be more than one, but every morning you imagine it from a new angle, and so it seems to have changed. In other words, nothing is going on in a world where there seems to be more than one. It is going on in you.

It is not possible to appear as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one and as formlessness is endless, there is no more than that which is one. Yet it is possible to pretend to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, which is fun until you believe it is real.** Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is not possible to leave the formlessness of that which is one since what is formless has no beginning or end, which means there is no more than that which is one. Yet it seems possible to imagine that there is more than one and as such leaving it in favour of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

You need to be with others in order to return to that which is one. But you also need not to perceive the apparent difference between them and you to make a difference, as that means you can imagine returning to that which is one just like you imagined to leave it, namely alone together.*

One way of doing this is to perceive all appearances in the world as symbols of that which is one.

Hence you must be more than one if you want to return to that which is one, which is not possible physically speaking. But imagining to be alone together*, which is by the way what you have always been in a world where there seems to be more than one, is possible – and that is how you return to that which you never left but in your imagination of being more than one.

Dimension is an illusion.

Dimension is an illusion.

PART 2:
Seen
from a world defined by time and space life is flat as can be. This should not be a surprise, because that which is life is one and as it requires more than one to be dimensional, what else can it be than flat.

To perceive that which is life as dimensional, it has to be divided into more than one, so that one flat part can observe another flat part, that seems to move when the observing part moves. In other words, by observing the flatness of life from different angles, you imagine being someone in a world defined by time and space.

Dutch-BrazilianRafaël Rozendaal

Dutch-Brazilian artist Rafaël Rozendaal

On the webpage almost calm you can see how a painting, that is still and flat seems to move and becomes dimensional, when you as observer outside of the flat image move on top of it via a mouse, tracking pad or fingers in case of a smartphone. The webpage is done by the artist Artist Rafaël Rozendaal, who in a series of new images uses an old-school technology best known for its use in funky, ridged baseball cards, where it looked like the slugger was swinging a bat, when you turned the card slightly to and fro – as is explained in the Wired article ´Vivid Paintings That Shape-Shift as You Walk by Them´.

What needs to be imagined though is not real. But that is the beauty of it. One can imagine a world defined by time and space and have fun pretending to be someone there, while nothing actually has changed, because since that which is one is formless it is endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

The Matrix.

A shot from the movie ´The Matrix´.

A world defined by time and space can be compared to ´the matrix´ in the movie by the same name, where reality, as it is perceived by most humans, is actually a simulated reality called ´the matrix´, which is a layer on top of the real world. But unlike in the movie the layer of a 3D world with appearances moving in time it is not created by machines, who trick you into seeing a world, that is not there.

In an attempt to be more than that which is one, you have tricked yourself into seeing something that is not there, namely a dimensional world, instead of seeing there is no more than that which is one, which is seen by seeing nothing, because that which is real cannot be seen, since it is that which is one and it takes more than one to see something.

Humans are afraid machines will take over the world, but they already have. A human is nothing but a machine.

A human is to be compared to a machine with artificial intelligence*. There is no self or soul inside it. It is nothing but mechanics. What it seems to think, feel and decide does not come from a self but from the instructions it gets from the cloud.

In the world defined by time and space you are to be compared to a machine that functions via the info it gets from IoT (The internet of things*), where everything included the appearance of a personality and soul is fabricated in the cloud, which makes all your thoughts, feelings and decisions based on preprogrammed sensors installed in you, although you like to think it is your own doing. Unlike in the movie ´The Matrix´, what is underneath the layer of the violent and ugly world called ´the matrix´ is not a world of machines but the beauty of that which is one.

Someone in the matrix has forgotten, they are not there.

Someone in the matrix has forgotten, that they are not there.

But if you forget that a world defined by time and space is nothing but a simulated reality, appearing to be there does not seem funky anymore but very serious. Hence it becomes important to preserve the imagination of being someone with a coherent self – even when the angles of observing that which is one are changed, which they constantly in order to make it appear as if it is a dimensional world. See also the article There is only one thing, that needs correction.

As everything has a beginning and an end in a dimensional world to survive as someone definitive, you to trick itself into believing you have a soul, that will reincarnate as someone new, when angles of observing that which is one are changed and what you appear to be cannot function anymore. So far though no one has been able to make this trick work.

The reason for this is very simple. There is no more than one life. It never ends though. What has an end is not life but afterlife. In other words, since life is formless and therefore endless, there is nothing else than that, so believing you are not someone definitive is a mistake.

Fortunately, a mistake can be corrected. See hack #8.5 To appear in the world is a mistake, that can be corrected. It only takes one to undo what is not one. That being said, in a world where there seems to be more than one oneness appears separated in more than, so to become one you include two or more appearances, that seems different from you as if their difference does not make a difference. See hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss. or hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

ai-imageHumans are afraid that machines with artificial intelligence will end their world, as Stephen Hawking and Elton Musk from Tesla predicts – and for sure they will end the world as humans know it, because what they seem to know is nothing but their own construction of thoughts, that they have tricked themselves to believe is the world.

The same though will be true for a new world fabricated by machines with artificial intelligence. It will be a fabricated reality on top of the fabricated reality, humans have made on top of the fabricated reality, that so-called gods did on top of that which is real. There may be layers in between those, but they are all simulated worlds on top of that which is real, namely the formlessness of oneness.


*) Alone together can be compared to having a dream in the sense that everything that appears to happen in it – no matter how and where it is experienced to be – is actually happening in you. And though there seem to be many different appearances, they are not really there. There is nobody but you. You are alone having a dream about a world where there seems to be more than one. This you can read more about this in the articles Alone together you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is oneWho is alone together? and The door to the enlightenment of that which is one is alone together or hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

**) In hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation. you can read about how pretending to be what you are not, undoes the belief in being someone definitive.
