BM In the indifference of ´the empty breath,´ all conditionings fade away (DRAFT)

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

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

At times, however, you may feel so angry about somebody that you do not want this to happen because it will make you indifferent and thus without the anger needed to punish them. So you prevent the aggressive energy inside of you from igniting a take-off to the empty breath by projecting it on those judged to have caused it. But doing so, you first and foremost punish yourself, because we receive what we give (read more about that here).

This goes on until you do not project your feelings onto others but keep them in you so the unedited energy of them can ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Focus, control, balance and any kind of adjustment are counterproductive in regard to igniting a take-off to the empty breath, as it has no specific form or centre and totally moves on its own accord.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

In hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, you can read more about how the mix of a physical symptom and your worries about it develops a psychosomatic disorder, that only can be healed when dealing with the physical manifestation in a physical way and the psychological problem in a mental or emotional way.

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the flow of the empty breath, you are automatically multitasking, because it does not know the concept of focusing on something specific. So if not feeling the empty breath, multitasking may pave the way.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There are several established ways of feeling somebody else when you believe to be someone substantial in a tangible world. But there are no ways to feeling the empty breath than to momentarily stop believing you are someone definitive.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Not being aware of something, there is nothing to make perfect. Consequently, you are not benumbed in an experience of yourself as someone definitive but in the flow of nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

Even though the empty breath seems to produce a constant rhythm of expansion and contraction in the body, your experience of it may not be so. And you are right. It is not consistent. It has no such need. Only those who believe to be somebody definitive has a need to be consistent, and since the empty breath does not believe to be anything at all, it does not need to uphold a persistent image of itself.

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

Likewise, he can always count on the empty breath. Even though it solely moves on its own accord, it is always to be felt in one way or the other. Maybe it is experienced to be going up and down, on a single wave in one of the circles in the empty breath, several times in a row, whereafter it is felt to be the swing of it inside of his head, and as if he is surfing both of the yin-yang looking waves in one of the other circles of the empty breath. In the previous article, What does ´the empty breath´ feel like, you can read more about these experiences and composition of the empty breath in endless circles.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

When you are connected with a Fitbit watch, for example, it is not from the connection itself you get an exceptional feeling but from the data it gives you.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The most exciting aspect of the empty breath is cannot be felt because it is indifference.

At first, it may feel as if the empty breath is too slow to supply you with enough air for breathing. But when you do not try to handle the flow of it*, which may or may not be adjusted to the physical breath, everything is fine as it is.

Perhaps it feels as if you do not have enough room for the empty breath or that it results in more pain than joy, especially if you in the past have avoided the awareness of unpleasant feelings by projecting them onto obscure parts of the body. Read more about the suppression of feelings and the psychosomatic diseases it entails in hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

Thus fear, traumas and worries are stored in the body, often psoas and its corresponding muscle the diaphragm. Since the latter, in terms of muscles, is the primary mover of the breath, it may have become too weak or stiff to freely move with the flow of the empty breath, which, therefore, seems to make you tense and not relaxed. That is if you are looking for a specific way of feeling the empty breath instead of going with its indifference because doing that, it does not matter whether the empty breath seems to result in a smooth expansion and contraction of the body or not.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

That the condition of the body is linked to what you think, is like assuming there is a connection between you and the world in a movie you are watching. This connection is entirely imaginative. The world in the film is unaffected by the thoughts or feelings you appear to have about it, and it is self-deception when you imagine it has caused them. The movie does not have such powers.

In other words, if you perceive that pain or sickness in the body has been caused by the mind, the soul or something else not physical, it is an idea you project on the body. And this idea can only be corrected where it was conceived, namely in the mental sphere.

Trying to correct it in the body is frustrating because the problem is not there, although it probably is felt to be in the body and there may seem to be symptoms of it there. Unfortunately, this is generally perceived as proof of a connection between the body and mind and/or soul instead of a warning against believing there is such connection. Read more about that in hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

Fortunately, the empty breath is indifferent to whatever you seem to think or feel, and so are you when connected with it. This does not mean it fixes the body, but that it liberates it from the sick ideas you have forced upon it so that the biological system can take care of the body without your interference but maybe with a little help of qualified health care professional. Hence you can correct your ideas where you made them. If you are used to projecting them onto the body, you may, however, have a hard time figuring out what is what. No worries. Joining the empty breath you see everything experienced as it does, namely as nothing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That the empty breath has a non-definitive form does not only mean that its edges are blurry but that neither its size nor shape is constant. It may grow bigger and smaller here and there so that it momentarily feels to be more pear-shaped than egg-shaped, for example.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Going with the flow without knowing where and why.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There are many possibilities for using the empty breath. Yet it is best not to use it but instead be used by it, so going with the flow sets the body free to heal itself. This is why it is brilliant in the case of psychosomatic disorders. It is not commendable, though, to catch every detail about the empty breath in this article because an intellectual understanding of it will not help you feeling connected with it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read more about the cancellation of contrasts and thus of you as someone definitive in Without contrasts, there is no duality, and so nothing seems to hide there is no more than non-duality. See hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough about hiding feelings in the body and the psychosomatic disorders it entails.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You do not get stressed from always having to avoid what you judge as negative, being angry for example, when perceiving everything as it is what it is. Read more about this perception in hack #4.2 Being a self or no-self)..

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

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

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

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


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


NOTE: This article is part of hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

Happiness comes from not interfering with thoughts and emotions, whereas sadness comes from trying to do that [draft]

If you do not perceive feelings in a way that wholly or partly suppresses them, you feel good no matter how you interpret them. In other words, seeing something as unfavourable feels just as good as perceiving it to be favourable. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1: TO BE HAPPY OR NOT
The brain repeatedly rewards the basic self for being in sync with its script by injecting it with shots of happiness. This it cannot do for the special self because it makes a  perception where everything it judges to be wrong in the script is excluded from its awareness and hidden in the body where the suppressed negativity generates strained areas. As the natural flow between the brain and the body is interrupted, the brain cannot inject it with happiness, nor can it be of help when the body is sick.

The special self uses meditation, Tai Chi or something else where it seems to be in control to disassociate itself from the brain and make it appear to be the cenre of the world.

You return from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive (read more about that here) with a body that has been set free from suppressed feelings. As it feels like starting from zero, you hesitantly begin moving the body very slowly. And as the special self is used to mimic what it wants to achieve, it thinks it will magically enter a state of not-knowing by imitating these slow motions in a focused mode like Tai Chi. A state of not-knowing, however, does not arise from focusing but defocusing. See the hack No Focus = No World Defined By Time And Space. It can find in Extra Duality Hacks

The result is a body inflicted by the unfortunate idea of a body-mind connection with you as the perceived master directing it to be more spiritual through yoga, meditation, special diet or other ways to manipulate it into something you believe to be better. Though the body obeys as it is made to do, it fights your mental attack on its physicality by creating physical symptoms of pain or allergic reactions, for example, hoping that the intensity of this will make you realise it is best not to interfere with the body.

The brain is happy when you do not block the information going to or from it – and so is the body, because then the biological system works in its favour. And since what you believe to be is a construction of the brain, you are also happy when not blocking the information going to or from the brain by using the body as a means to become something special.

Should this makes you see that you are a slave of your story about being the master of your life and that you do not know what is in your best interest, the self-destructive perception of yourself and the body as something you understand is broken. Hence the body is set free from your imprisonment, and the biological system can again communicate with the brain so it can heal the damages you brought upon the body by blocking the natural flow of the biological system with mental ideas of wellness.

When you feel entertained, your perception is in sync with the script of the brain. But if you blame the world for what you feel, you distance yourself from your experience and thus the one making it, namely the brain. As you, therefore, are out of sync with the script of the brain, you do not feel entertained but bored by it.  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2: THE SCRIPT IS FIXED, BUT YOUR PERCEPTION OF IT IS NOT
The changes in the script of the brain that you believe have been made by you, or higher forces, only happened in the way you perceived it. And it only seems to disguise that the original script is unchanged because you hide it by painting your particular perception on top of it. But just like a layer of lipstick, do not alter what is beneath it, nor do your special perception.

You may, however, think that you can change something. And you are right. You have lots of choices. But no matter if you choose to go right or left, for example, what happens from there is already written into the manuscript – just like regardless of what you decide to do in a video game, the subsequent events are predetermined. And also, like in a video game, it is not essential to escape death because you are not there. Yet to feel entertained by the plot, you relate to it as if you are, which your perception of this experience seems to confirm.

Metaphorically speaking, the brain has made a pool of thoughts that you are free to use as you choose for how to perception its script. If not trying to make a special perception, one that is in sync with the script of the brain is composed by itself. If you decide to make a perception that does not relate to the script of the brain but one of the many theoretical ways of making it better, for example socialism, capitalism or humanism, this does not come effortlessly.

In other words, it takes much effort to compose a perception out of sync with the brain, and since the pool of thoughts, from where to make it, does not have enough thoughts for that, you have to cause them to multiply, so there is enough to make up your special perception. Later you must meditate or something else that seems to imply you are in control of the thoughts and therefore can stop those generated but do not fit into the perception you want to create.

But it does not work like that. You need the negative thoughts you want to get rid of to define you as positive, so instead of terminating them, you project them onto others. To make long short, surpassing the perception automatically created by the brain and instead make a one in which you appear to be right and others wrong is hard work. And it does not result in feeling good but very confused because it collides with the script of the brain where nothing is wrong or missing. See hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

In other words, you do not know what is in your own best interest when you make perceptions out of sync with the script of the brain. Actually, this is the same if your perception is in sync with the brain. But in this case, it does not matter because the brain knows what is in your best interest, and as the perception is in sync with the script of the brain, this is what you get. Thus you feel entertained whether something appears to be negative or positive. See also Every moment is the perfect moment – even for dying in the rainforest.

You do not have to like the script of the brain, but if you want to be entertained by it, you have to relate to it without trying to change it – just like you do not have to like everything in a plot of a movie but have to connect with it if you want to feel the thrill of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Constantly feeling entertained, you are not looking for something special to make you feel good, nor do you need to hang onto something, in particular, to feel happy. Consequently, feelings do not get sticky.

This does not require that your perception align with the present version of the script made by the brain. First of all, what you believe to happen right now happened in the past because it takes one second for the brain to process the inputs it claims to get from your sensory system into an experience you seem to have now. So what you believe to read now, you read one second ago (read more about that here). Secondly, the experience of any point in linear time is made by the brain from empty space because what it claims to receive from your sensory system is actually nothing that it renders into something. Hence, you seem to be someone living in a capsule of time and space.

Consequently, it makes no difference to the brain what point in the timeline of its script that your perception matches. So if you are walking down the street and hardly notice it because you think of a specific moment from the past, you are in sync with the script of the brain if your perception corresponds to that past moment of the script. Just like you are in sync with a movie when you relate to its plot, regardless it is an event of the past or the future.

Nor does it make a difference to the brain, if you like its script or not. It will not change it, and it does not want you to change your thoughts and feelings about it. Politically incorrect emotions, like sexual lust, power strivings, selfishness, greed, envy, anger, rage, are not a problem for the brain because everything is scripted in pairs. Hence your relation to the script must be light as well as heavy. Actually, it will not make you feel anything but numbness if you try to avoid what you judge as unfavourable. That is why those chanting, or in other ways fencing off negative vibrations, do not feel entertained by the fantasy of being someone.

If you wonder whether your perception of the script is in sync or not, you do not feel entertained by it and thus out of sync. Not doing anything about it, you are not in charge, which immediately corrects the perception. But since the reason for being out of sync is that you believe to be in control, not doing anything is not an option. Fortunately, deciding it is as what is makes your perception in sync with the script.

Sticking to this decision, you will not feel the need to decide anything yourself. The brain has made you, so it knows what is in your best interest. It also knows how to perceive it, so you feel happy. Therefore, just like when you are watching a movie, you feel entertained whether something seems to be a success or a fiasco. You have no unpleasant feelings to hide in the body, so it will not suffer from psychosomatic disorders.

If your perception of the natural flow of thoughts is synchronised with it or not makes no difference regarding what you experience but how you feel about it. If in sync, any experience makes you happy, whereas you feel troubled if your perception is out of sync because it never feels good not being connected. The perception is out of sync with the script of the brain when it does not relate to it as it is but to a version based on spiritualism, capitalism, socialism or any other ism of the world. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3: EVERYTHING IS PREPARED FOR YOU
Being in sync with the natural flow of thoughts as it comes from the brain can be compared to being in sync with the plot of a movie. It is straightforward because the film is full of hints, that let you know how to perceive what is going on.

The director of the movie has, for example, added emotional music leading up to exciting scenes in which the bad guys drive in black cars. And since black – at least in the Western world – is associated with evil, you, based on your cultural conditioning, instinctively know how you should perceive it to be in sync with the hints made by the director and thus feeling entertained by the plot.

There might be times when the plot seems so scaring or depressing that the movie does not appear entertaining. That is until things brighten up, which you cannot see unless you had been in the dark, wherefore darkness becomes as pleasing as lightness.

But if you think you know better than the director and imagine how the movie could be if you edit the storyline or change the characters so that everything fits into the concepts of spiritualism, capitalism or some other ism you believe is gonna make you and/or the world better.

When you do not get the plot of a movie it feels boring. Hence you look forward for it to become better and feel stuck in the film as it is. Likewise, in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Since the plot is based on the belief that there is more than that which is one, you do not try to be at one, for example, but have fun pretending to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Going with the flow of that, you have a laugh and thus affirm your indifference to the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

So when you do not question the director or doubt the movie’s storyline but jump into the adventure as it is, the experience of being engaged in a world where you are not is entertaining.

On a practical level, in the world where we appear to be, this means that you speak the language of the country where you are living and politically vote as the majority or in opposition to it, so you are established as somebody in a specific group wherein you are defined by those you oppose.

It is not about being right. The script is neither logical, rational, or consistent and least of all fair, but if your perception is in sync with it, you feel good no matter how you seem to be treated.

None of the characters in the world of a movie are in the cimema where you experience them. They are not on the screen either. If it is a digital one, there is nothing but zeros and ones added together in such a way, that the brain can combine them into an experience of a world in 3D. If it is an analogue movie, it is nothing but reflections of light, that the brain interprets to a world defined by time and space.

Everybody makes up their own version of a movie, and they believe everybody else has seen it the same way. Likewise, the special self always twists the script of the brain into a story where it is on top of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 4: TO BE IN THE WORLD BUT NOT OF IT
The reason, it is in your best interest to coordinate your perception of the world with the stream of thoughts coming from the brain is that it is this stream that makes up your experience of the world and you being someone there. And it is not fun having these experiences if not in alignment with the maker of them – just like it is not fun but lots of trouble or boredom to participate in roleplay if not in alignment with the gamemaster.

If your perception of a movie is in sync with the flow of thoughts that the brain automatically produces in response to it, you feel entertained. If one of these responses produced by the brain is a feeling of lust and you suppress it by perceiving the object of your desire to be too young, old or something else judged as wrong, you are out of sync with the flow of thoughts that the brain produces in response to the movie. Hence you do not feel entertained but frustrated by its plot.

The same applies when you watch a movie. It is meant to invoke familiar emotions so that you feel involved in its plot. The brain searches your memory bank for something that can support it. And suppose you do not start doubting the subsequent interpretation of the characters and try to make a better one but follow it to the letter. In that case, you feel entertained by the movie (read more about that here), whereas it seems to bore you if you break up its story by judging the characters by concepts unrelated to the film. See also To be in sync with the natural flow of thoughts.

The above is meant to illustrate that if there is no attempt to alter the stream of thoughts coming from the brain by making a perception of them that implies they are spiritual, for example, the subsequent physical experience of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one brings about happiness because that is what the thoughts produce if not overridden by a perception that does not relate to them as they are.

If you are in the habit of suppressing feelings, you will not sense that being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is unreal, and thus never be motivated to undo the belief that it is real.

EPILOGUE:
In a world where there seems to be more than one, you appear to be able to get rid of feelings by hiding them in the body and get them out of their imprisonment by expressing them or heal the problem of suppressed emotions in the body by bringing them back in the mental sphere, as described in this and the previous articles.

But since there is no more than that which is one and since it takes more than one to exist, you are non-existing, and so is the world where you experience to be. So ultimately speaking, there is nothing to heal other than the belief that you exist (read more about that here). Fortunately, this is what the duality hacks do when you keep on reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.


NOTES:

BS4 The body is made to deal with physical issues, not psychological ones [draft]

There is no extraordinary purpose for appearing to be or have a self, just like there is no purpose of pretending to be someone in a video game except for having fun pretending to be what you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
The special self dissociates itself from unpleasant experiences by justifying them with the world so it can perceive itself as free from evil and that it is something that needs to be battled in the world. Although this makes the tensions disappear from how it perceives itself, they remain hidden in obscure parts of its body. Read more about that here.

The tensions might have been hidden there for years, but their suppressed energy causes parts of the body to be dysfunctional sooner or later. Traditional medicine, nutritional supplements or massage, for example, often seem to relieve you from the pain in one part of the body. But nothing has been healed. The pain has just been moved to another part of the body – often from the loin to the shoulders and vice versa.

Besides, the cause of the problem is not in the body but in your perception of yourself from where you have dumped unpleasant feelings into the body, so they are hidden from your awareness. To heal the problems that this has caused, you must bring back the suppressed feelings where they were deemed to be unwanted, namely in your perception of yourself, so you can make a perception of yourself as you are.

This is not to say that traditional medicine, nutritional supplements or massage should be avoided. They can be a great way to relieve the pain in the body, so you do not feel weighed down by it but have the energy to face your problem where it is made.

Actually, there is nothing that needs to be avoided, not even restrictions. Although they do not bring relief but frustration, the latter, if unedited, can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath in which there is nobody to perceiving anything as a problem. See hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

Since many dumps feelings of silliness, for example caused by continually dropping something or going the wrong way, in the stomach, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is often a psychosomatic illness. This is probably the reason, it is not a sickness the doctors diagnose based on blood analysis, but instead by eliminating other measurable disorders.

INTERLUDE:
The special self uses much energy to suppress the thoughts and feelings judged as negative or politically incorrect. This it deems necessary for preserving what it believes to be or will become when it lives in the now, come from the heart or whatnot. On the other hand, the basic self has no need to appear in a special way and, therefore, no need to suppress something that has been judged as wrong.

Besides, it knows negativity is just as crucial as positivity. It is the combination of the negative and positive pole in an electric wire that makes energy. Read more about that here.

Fortunately, the duality hacks percive everything as they perceive themselves and since they are nothing so are your problems. That is why problems do not hold back the duality hacks from undoing the belief that you are someone definitive. Actually they apply themselves when continually reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

You cannot avoid events that seem to make you sad, but you can refrain from interpreting them so they make you unhappy. This naturally occurs for the basic self, which has no need for special events to make it happy, as happiness is the essence of all experiences, not interpreted to make it stand out as exceptional. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
Perhaps caused by judging oneself to be amiss when continually dropping something or going the wrong way, feelings of silliness are often dumped in the stomach. This may result in a sickness called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). It is not measurable, so it cannot be diagnosed based on blood or another kind of physical analysis but by eliminating other measurable disorders, which often indicates a psychosomatic illness.

That is probably why the problem is not solved through physically solutions like excluding onions and whatnot. The issue needs to be addressed where it is made, namely in perceiving yourself as not good enough.

This is not to say that you should not follow a diet like FODMAP in the case of IBS, for example. It might be an excellent way to relieve stomach pain, so you have the strength to face your low self-esteem. In other words, it is not solved by getting more friends or likes on Facebook but by facing the problem where it is, namely in the perception of yourself. It has been edited to reflect what you wish to be and not what you are. In the language of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, the perception is out of sync with the script of the brain because you have excluded something from it. Read more about the script of the brain here.

If not trying to justify, understand or in any way define those feelings that once in a while escape from the darkness in the body where they have been hidden, their restless energy automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath. And since it is undisguised nothingness, it sees through the suppressed feelings or anything else that you perceive to be something including yourself. Thus there is no anxiety of something but the bliss of nothing in its connectedness.

An excellent shortcut for correcting the perception is to use the frustration that a psychosomatic disorder entails as a take-off to the empty breath (see hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing). It does not perceive the apparent difference between being loved or rejected to make a difference, so the cause of the psychosomatic disorder is cancelled out.

If your phone is out of order and it seems to make you upset, having the phone fixed may appear to address the anger as well. But the phone has neither the power to make you angry or heal you. So even though the anger has disappeared from your awareness, it will return when something else triggers it, unless you deal with the phone and your fury separately, so both of the problems can be corrected on their own terms. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
If physical symptoms of illness trigger memories of endangerment and those two elements are combined so that the physical symptoms are perceived to cause a threat, a fusion of physical and psychological reality seems to have been established. The resulting psychosomatic disorder cannot be healed by the body’s biological system because it is made to deal with physicality only. And like oil and water, and does not mix, nor do psychological and physical elements, so the use of mental powers does not heal the body but mess it up even more.

The paradox in trying to heal a psychosomatic disorder is that it reinforces the fear of the physical symptoms and thus the psychosomatic disorder.

Suppose the experience of the physical symptom, on the other hand, is not combined with the memories of endangerment that are triggered by it. In that case, the symptom remains physical and the memories psychological. Therefore, the biological system is free to deal with the physical symptom and leave the memories of danger to be dealt with psychologically.

When the condition of the body is not perceived to have been caused by emotional or mental problems, they do not seem to attest to the existence of the body and vice versa. Just like the world in a movie is not experienced as real and you not to partake in it, if the emotions it seems to provoke are not perceived to have been caused by it.

Like a strawn is built to deal with fluid and not solid things, the body is made to deal with physicality and not emotions or mental stuff. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To sum it up: When you appear to be sick, and your concern about the physical symptom triggers a past sense of danger that you interpret as caused by the present physical symptom, you develop a psychosomatic disorder. But since body and mind cannot be fused, no cure will work before the immaterial feeling is disentangled from the material symptom, so each of the problems can be dealt with on their own term.

In a situation where you perceive yourself to be on top of it and know what to do, try for a moment to perceive you do not know what comes next. Then feel which perceptions makes you feel free.

This differentiation occurs by itself when you are the basic self because it relates to the stream of thoughts coming from the brain as is and not as it should be according to concepts of socialism, capitalism or any other ism that claims to be an infallible science, which is a mental attempt to find a special meaning where there is none. There is nothing to learn from the thoughts streaming from the brain, nor when it produces dreams or spiritual experiences. None of it means anything. It is all made out of nothing with just one purpose, namely to make it look as if it is something, so one can have fun being entertained by nothing. Read more about that here.

Since you come back from a state of not-knowing with the slate wiped clean and therefore as the basic self (read more about that here) and since all the duality hacks bring about that state,* all you need to disentangle the material and immaterial problems is to go on reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings because doing so the duality hacks apply themselves.

In hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone, you can read how the empty breath immediately takes you to a state of not-knowing. If you want to go tread about it, but to go jump to hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

And if you want to know what happens if you do not leave a state of not-knowing but remain there for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, go to hack #6.3 The inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

The two last hacks are about the enlightenment of that which is one, which does not lead to anything. Actually, it takes away everything, so there does not appear to be something to hide, there never was and never will be more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

When the experience of something, regardless it seems to be spiritual, material or immaterial, is not perceived to be real, the brains rendering of you as someone in the world of the experienced is bypassed and the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome.

Alexius uses no techniques for being connected with the empty breath or having glimpses of enlightenment. It happens by itself. He does not know why, but when it is possible for him, he is convinced it is for you too. And that the duality hacks will take away what you do not need for that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The above is not meant to imply that you need to go through certain phases to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. Alexius went straight to the enlightenment of that which is one. Yet, he bounced back to the experience of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one before he reached the point of no return. See The ins and outs of a black hole, or Nothing can stop you on Highway One except your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

In the experience of being someone in a tangible world, he changes between being the basic self, the special self and in a state of not-knowing. In the latter, he has glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which you can read about in hack #6.2 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.

Alexius uses no techniques for this. Yet, he presents some strategies that can facilitate it. See the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment.

Being someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, he knows there is no more than that which is one. So he is not longing to ´return to´ the formlessness of oneness but enjoys pretending to be what and where he is not – just like within the context of where he pretends to be, he sometimes has fun pretending to be somebody in the virtual world of a game. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

In the enlightenment of that which is one, there are no experiences of a world where there seems to be more than one. Nor are there any memories of them because to remember something requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one. For the same reason, there is no experiences at all.

When he has had his fun doing that, he intends to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one with no intention of returning to the consciousness of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.


*) This does not apply to the enlightenment of that which is one as it takes more than one to be in a state, and it straight away erases anything that requires more than one.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough. It is a rough draft that will be continuously updated.

BS3 Up and down is equally enjoyable for the basic self [draft]

The one you believe to be is not in control of a dream you seem to be having, nor are you in it. You are in your bed. Likewise, you are not in a world where there seems to be more than one because that which is one is formless and therefore endless. Thus appearing to be in such a world is like experiencing being in the world of a dream. It is beyond your control, so trying to manage your appearance feels frustrating, whereas going with the flow makes you feel good. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
The special self attempts to take over the control of the body by eliminating its self-sustaining system inflicting with ideas of a mental and not physical nature. And since the biological system only knows how to deal with physicality, it cannot heal the psychosomatic disorders this attack causes on the body.

When you have attacked somebody, you unconsciously wait for their retaliation to prove it had an effect and that you, therefore, exist. So even though the body cannot fight back, when the special self forces it to live beyond its expiry date, hold back ejaculation and whatnot, the special self always perceives the resulting psychosomatic disorders as revenge.

The immune system gets so confused from the mental ideas of how to be centred and in balance, for example, that is inflicted upon the body, so it starts to attack it, which makes the special self conclude that its problems come from the body and not the way it deals with it. Thus it fills the body with all kind of medicaments prescribed by a doctor to resolve the problem. But since the course of the problem is in the way the special self perceives the body and not in the body, the source of the problem is not healed, so the symptoms remain no matter if they are treated by traditional or alternative health professionals.

To make long short, the problem must be resolved where it is, namely in the perception that the special self has of itself as a unique being in control of its own life. This is as foolish as to believe you control what and where you appear to be a dream you experience to have. The only thing you are in control of is how to interpret it.

For example, in a video game, what and where you appear to be is designed by the creator of the game. So the only choice you have is to perceive it, so you have fun playing it as it is or being frustrated trying to change it. The same applies to the tangible world where you appear to be someone substantial. What and where you seem to be is a fiction made by the brain, and it cannot be changed – only your interpretation of it.

The special self finds it especially exciting to be high up, whereas the basic self does not consider up to be better than down, but two equally exciting ways of experiencing a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If this is in sync with how the brain has scripted the fiction, you feel entertained by the idea of being someone substantial in a tangible world. It is a bit like going up and down on a rollercoaster. You scream of fear when going down and shout of joy when going up. But it is equally entertaining. Hence there is no need to judge part of the entertainment as wrong. Fortunately, because in the script of the brain, everything comes in pairs, so you cannot have one without the other.

When the special self says it needs time to process something, it means that it needs time to make a perception of it based on the past, so nothing seems to have changed.

That it is up to you to choose a perception that makes you happy is not evident for the special self. It has made the image of itself by excluding all the fragments of its basic self judged as wrong.* Thus, its fundamental instinct is to perceive everything divided into right and wrong and exclude from its awareness what is judges to be wrong. And as going down is judged to be bad, it is definitely not entertaining for the special self.

Consequently, it tries to always control events, but since its appearance is what matters the most, controlling its body is essential. And though it never works out as planned, it insists that doing things in its own way and pace, everything will eventually get better. On the other hand, the basic self has nothing to make better as it is happily being managed by the brain.

PART 2:
When the consciousness of the basic self goes rogue,* it starts to respond like a spell checker. It automatically corrects every thought received from the brain into something that it judges to be better, so the self, which initially was administered by the brain, is perceived to be self-made and thus independent of the brain.

That is, of course, if the basic self accepts this correction of the thoughts coming from the brain, which not only produces a perception that is out of sync with them but also seems to multiply them into endless possibilities of what the special can become and have.

As this looks very exciting, the basic self, in most cases, gladly accepts the corrections made by its rogue consciousness.* However, the price is a constant flow of hectic and chaotic thoughts that no longer are geared towards what is in the best interest of everybody but only how it can become and have more at the expense of others.

When the brain wants you to run, it uses the biological system to signal this to the body, which starts running regardless it is believed to belong to a basic or special self. The basic self, as always, feels entertained by following the commands of the brain. On the other hand, the special self loathes the brain and its simple ideas of entertainment, so running does not make it smile but angry about the silly world of the brain, which it believes could be much better. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words, when the basic self accepts the spell checking performed by the rogue consciousness,* it seems to have been transformed into a special self, which is in charge of itself and thus able to do things independently of the brain, contrary to the basic self which is not in control, nor able to do anything on its own, but just like a zombie follows the commands of the brain.*

Yet, being a follower is uncomplicated and relaxing, whereas believing to be independent is complicated and requires much effort to establish. Exhaustion arises from the latter and vitality from the former. So if you want to have an easy time while appearing to be someone substantial in a tangible world, use one or more of the duality hacks to enter a state of not-knowing. It restores the basic self by wiping out every perception that is out of sync with the brain.

The essential sorrow, that we all feel when believing to be what we are not, and the wish to avoid feeling sad, often leads to the fabrication of the special self.

But the sorrow can also be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath in which it is not sorrow you sense but compassion with everybody that just like you seem to be what they are not. Hence you stop perceiving them to be separated from you.

This, however, may at first seem disappointing because the basic self is coupled with the essential sorrow that comes from the belief in being a limited being and not of the formlessness of oneness. The easy solution to the consuming sense of hopelessness that this entails may, therefore, be to go with the hectic and restless stream of thoughts making up the special self because it seems to imply there is something to hope for.

Both the basic and the special self is a construction of thoughts. But whereas the basic self is a simple construction made for entertaining, the special self is a very speculative construction made to sow discord by insisting on socialism, nationalism or another ism to be the best and those adhering to it as better than others. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is until you do not try to get rid of feeling hopeless because then the unedited energy of it ignites a take-off to the empty breath and its bliss of not-knowing. Most duality hacks will take you there, for example hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss or hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing). The first one because you include your sorrow, and the second one because its inherent energy is used to ignite a take to the empty breath.

When you, this time, return from a state of not-knowing to the conscious experience of being someone definitive, you probably are more willing to do that as the basic self. But you probably go back and forth between the basic and special self many times before you settle with the fact that as long as you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is in your own best interest to be in sync with the stream of thoughts that the brain produces to entertain the self it has made.

If you are confused about what you are, you are well on the way to not knowing it, which is the invitation, the enlightenment of that which is one patiently has been has been waiting for.

If you do not want to be in such a world and want to have the belief that you are there undone, it is not necessary to be the basic self. But it is much easier because not being special, you sooner or later forget to remember what and where you are, which is what the enlightenment of that which is one patiently is waiting for. Read more about that here.

INTERLUDE:
If you perceive the brains basic rendering of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one to be a bit boring, the special self sets in by offering you more exotic ways of perceiving it, for example, by coming from the heart (read more about that here), living in the now or having direct experiences.

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

As the basic and special self is equally illusionary, the differentiation between them in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is only meant to point out that, as the basic self, you, just like in a self-driving car, can sit back and enjoy the ride and step out when you like. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
To be living in the now is a concept used by the special self to make itself appear more genuine than others. But since all experiences are processed by the brain and it always needs one second to produce an experience, what you believe to be conscious of now took place in the past. Read more about that here. In other words, living in the now is not genuine but fake.

Should you be sick and tired from trying to make this or other concepts of the special self appear to work, and just want to enjoy the belief in being someone, you can apply hack #3.1#4.2 and #4.3 (this hack) that are about how to be entertained by this belief, namely by supporting the brain that in return supports you with shots of happiness.

They will sooner or later guide you to those duality hacks that bring you into a state of not-knowing from where you can bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one or return to the consciousness with the slate wiped clean, so you continue as the basic self until you are glad that there is no more to ask for and thus not something that seems to hide there is more than that which is one.

INTERLUDE:
Whether you believe to be a basic or special self, the future is the same. You cannot change that. Just like you cannot change anything in a movie you are watching, except your perception of it.

But if you make an interpretation of a movie you are watching based on selected parts of it, so it seems to be similar to another one, you cannot enjoy the rest of it as intended by the director because you will overlook the parts that are not in alignment with your interpretation.

This is the reason the special self, which is made from the perception of selected elements of the basic self, needs to continually modify something to feel unique. In contrast, the basic self enjoys everything as it is.

BS1 The belief in a body-mind connection is the destroyer of wellness [draft]

The multiplication of thoughts needed to construct an image of you as an independent being results in stress, and thus a tired body tired. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
When you do not suppress feelings by holding back the breath or try to alter it with yoga exercises or something else that stops its natural rhythm, you are effortlessly in sync with the flow of thoughts as they come from the brain. And since not too many thoughts are needed to uphold the construction of you as a basic self, the flow of thoughts does not seem to be disturbing but entertaining.

That is until the consciousness, the brain has installed in the basic self that it made, thinks it knows better than its maker and plots against it to become independent so it can be in charge of its appearance. This, however, requires a more complicated construction of thoughts than the simple one accumulated by the brain to fabricate the basic self in which the consciousness resides.

The rogue consciousness,* therefore, perceives the basic self in such a way that fear holds back the breath long enough for the thoughts flowing along with it to be imprisoned and thus force their way out of this locked-in moment by multiplying themselves.

In reality, nothing is missing because reality is that which is one, and it takes more than one to be be missed.

But when they are out, they continue their frantic movement inside the special self, which, therefore, feel completely different from the basic self and the laid-back stream of thoughts the brain produces to support it. But the rogue consciousness* does not want the restless stream of thoughts to slow down and find the rest that comes from being in sync with the basic self because they stop multiplying. Thus there will not be enough thoughts to make up a plausible story of why it is more exciting to be a special than a basic self, even though the basic one is so happy.

You cannot make the world better, but you can make your perception of it better, so it is in sync with the experience that the brain renders to make you feel entertained. This is automatically done by the brain when there is no interference from you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thus it organises the thoughts into pairs, not of love though but interdependency, as they each need the other to confirm its apparent existence. The first pair, which is in charge of all the other pairs, consists of a judge, who determines what thoughts are good and bad, and an executioner, who excludes the thoughts its partner has sentenced to be bad so that the rest, namely those thoughts judged as good, can be compiled into a construction that makes up a special self that is perceived to be better than the basic one made by the brain.

Read more about this twosome in the paragraph The world is a construction of fragmented thoughts in Every moment is the perfect moment – also for dying in the rainforest.

This image of a self that is better than others and independent of the brain, the rogue consciousness* keeps together by hiding the excluded thoughts in obscure parts of the body, where the suppressed energy of them mess up the natural flow of the breath and thus the stream of thoughts used to keep the body healthy. The special self, therefore, concludes it is better if it takes care of the body itself.

As you can see, to be special and independent requires much work. And since it is not rewarded with a sound body but one with psychosomatic disorders, the special self feels quite confused, contrary to the basic one who happily makes the brain take care of it.

However, this does not necessarily mean that the basic self has a sound body, but that if it gets sick, it is caused by a physical disorder and not a psychological one. It may also be that the script for the body has been stitch together so that parts of it do not function so well.

There is no need to change yourself into something special. You are good enough as you are. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But as the happiness of the basic self does not depend on appearance, this makes no difference. It may even be helpful. The bad functioning body of Alexius, for example, makes it easy for him to slow down physically and in an effortlessly way, use all his energy to write Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

Please be aware, it is not possible to change the basic self into a special one. But it is possible to change the perception of the basic self so that it seems to become a special self. Since this is self-deception, the perception of change is out of sync with the script of the brain. This is why so much confusion arises from this perception.

Fortunately, if not edited, confusion ignites a take-off to the empty breath,* that makes you indifferent to the exciting experiences that seem to come from perceiving oneself to be special.

INTERLUDE:
The biological system of the body is used by the brain to uphold it, so if the body bothers you, it is in most cases best to let nature take its course because if you try to solve the problem in the body with mental ideas of balance, for example, you fuck up the ability of the body to take care of itself. The basic self would never do this.

But the special self always thinks it knows better, so it forces the body to do extreme yoga exercises, heavy weight lifting, restricting diets, tantra sex, or other mental concepts of wellness that makes the body appear to be its instrument. The price is a body that suffers, but since the primary concern of the special self is its appearance, it gladly pays the price.

As you and your healing ideas mess up the natural flow between the body and the brain, the latter cannot heal the damage you inflict on the body – especially since the body is made to deal with physical problems and not mental ones. Hence you need to set the body free from your domain so the flow between the body and the brain can be reestablished.

This does not mean that you become redundant. Maybe you need to call a professional physician. The body will let you know.

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

PART 2:
What is projected onto others seems to have been excluded from what you believe to be and, instead, established as what you believe others to be. But since this is solely based on your judgment, the transference is purely mental.

In other words, nothing has been excluded from you except the awareness of it, which most likely has been accomplished by hiding the excluded in your body. This suppression, however, of thoughts and feelings in obscure parts of the body creates blockages that prevent the biological system from communicating with the brain. That makes way for you, undisturbed by the biological system, to impose mental ideas of wellness upon it, for example by forcing the body to sit in rigid meditation positions, which makes the body numb.

But you are not meant to make a perception of the thoughts coming from the brain, so they seem to be in alignment with mental concepts of spiritualism, capitalism or any other ism. You are meant to perceive them as they are, which you do when you feel entertained because that is their purpose.

No matter how hard you try to make the concept of a body-mind connection work, the result is a messed up body and mind.

Although it feels comforting to be in sync with the stream of thoughts coming from the brain, it is not needed for having the belief in being someone definitive undone. All that is required for that is to not pay attention to your perception of the thoughts coming from the brain – just like the events in a game or a dream are exposed as make-believe when your interpretation of them is not taken seriously.

In other words, to have the belief in being someone undone, there is no need to change anything but the choice to believe that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, which it automatically is when you do not interpret your experience of it as real but symbols of that which is real. See hack #2.1 To see symbols of life in the world.

As this, in most cases, is a process over time, you may as well enjoy the belief in being someone while having it undone, which is what you do when in sync with the thoughts of the brain.

The special self keeps coming back to Facebook or a similar media, where messages and likes seem to confirm its specialness. If not continually established as unique, it starts doubting itself and thus loses its sense of being the one in charge of itself, which it fears more than anything else. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
What you believe to be is a construction of thoughts compiled by the brain so that it feels like there is a self having a conscious experience of being someone definitive inside a substantial body in a tangible world. This also applies to whatever is believed to experience this self. Also, if this self is experienced to be spiritual or someone in a dream.

In that thought construction, everything has a contrast, so it can be defined by that and experienced as something specific by someone definitive. As every experience, therefore, comes in pairs, you cannot have one without the other. You must, for example, know what is bad to experience what is good and vice versa.

When in sync with this thought construction of the brain, separation is not seen as a means to make you better than others but to experience a world where there seems to be more than one. Thus hate and negativity, for example, are not considered to be avoided, but something just as needed as love and positivity.

But if not in sync with this thought construction, negative thoughts are seen as something that should be excluded from one´s perception of itself, so one appears to be only positive, which is accomplished by projecting every unpleasant thought onto others. But it is like trying to turn on a TV without the negative pole of the electrical wire. It does not work.

The special self is never in sync with the moment as it is. There is always a story going on in the background, based on long-time forgotten events perceived to have made it suffer, that prevents it from being entertained by the present moment.

Being out of sync with the thought construction of the brain occurs when the consciousness that the brain has installed in the self goes rogue** and make a special perception of the present moment based on frustrations of the past, so there seems to be something wrong or missing in the present.

Though the disharmony of the perception and the actual events of the present is due to the hateful perception of the special self, it condemns the brain for the discrepancy and praises itself for going new ways to make things better. But what the special self blames the brain for is its own inadequacy. And since it actually is a product of the brain (read more about that here), this is the damnation of itself.

No matter what you believe to be, you are mistaken because it takes more than one to believe something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is why perceiving to be special entails feelings of depression and stress instead of the happiness and relaxation that comes from not creating a special perception of the experiences the brain produces. Hardly anybody, however, knows how it feels to perceive the experiences as they are.

Should they accidentally, through mindfulness or something similar, believed to bring them back to basic, discard the perception making up the special image of themselves, and stand bare as the basic self, they feel humiliated and reduced to being secondary. Were they not so eager to make a difference, they would instead discover the satisfaction of being a servant of the brain.

Believing to be a substantial creature in a world where there seems to be more than one, because it appears to have an effect on you is as foolish as to assume you are someone in a video game, because it seems to make you feel something. But since what you believe to feel is caused by the feelings you project on it, there is nothing outside of you to confirm your existance as someone substantial. It is pure fiction.

And there is not even something, a consciousness or whatnot, making up this fiction, nor being aware of it, because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to make up or be aware of something.

That being said, as it takes more than one to be a basic as well as a special or any other kind of self and as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, there is no self at all. So if there is an experience of reading this, there is a need to believe so, because it seems to confirm you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one and that it, therefore, is possible to be and have more than that which is one, although it is formless and therefore endless.

PART 4:
It is not something personal when the special self blames everybody for being wrong. They are just a means to get rid of whatever the special self perceives as unacceptable in itself so that it can feel good by making them bad.

Suppose the special self accuses someone of being a dictator, for example, and proves it by saying that because of this, you are evil. In that case, it does not necessarily mean that the special self wants to hide a secret wish in itself to dominate. It is more likely that it wants to hide what perceiving someone to be a dictator makes it feel. It could be anger or desperation. Or maybe stubbornness that the special self needs to deny in itself so it can maintain the belief in being an open person. It could also be hatred or a basic feeling of not being good enough, which it wants to hide by blaming a perceived dictator for having caused by being unjust.

But whatever feeling the special self excludes from its consciousness of who it is by blaming somebody else for having caused it, the feeling will return to its awareness as a feeling caused by itself when there is nobody to blame for it. To avoid that, the special self is always on the lookout for a scapegoat. If the spouse that it divorced was its primary scapegoat, it probably continues an inner conversation with the spouse until a replacement is found.

This is not to say that one should stop blaming others because if you do that, you miss a perfect opportunity to see what you hide in yourself by blaming them. Having exposed it, you can deal with it where it is made, namely in yourself. Having done that, you do not need to hide and thus not to spent time finding scapegoats to feel okay.

There is probably no faster way to expose a problem of yours than to blame others for having caused it. There probably is no quicker way to resolve the exposed issue than to use its unpleasant energy for a take-off to the empty breath, as it only takes it one second to wipe the slate clean (read more about that here), so you are restored as the basic self and feels as renewed. You do not even have to understand the exposed problem or know what it is to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. All you need is to feel it entirely.

See Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ for how to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. And see The YOU finger and the three ME fingers for how thankful you should be for those you have blamed for your problems because they have helped you expose them so they can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath.

The psychological and physical sphere does not mix [draft] flyttes til MAKE-BELIEVE?

If you concentrate a lot, you might sense something that appears to be a person in this image. And if you extend this experience by imagining what the person is like, your experience seems real. But if you do not focus, you will not experience anything definable in this image that can define you as someone. And so you are well on your way back to that which is one because there is nobody in the picture – nor are you somebody looking at it, since it takes more than one to do so, and there is no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Have you tried sitting in a bathtub and imagined that the glimpses in the drops of the steam coming up from it is made up hidden world? Or have you looked at a painting of persons and sensed their emotions? What you perceive to be there is make-believe because there is nobody in a painting, nor in the world, you fantasised in the steam from the bathtub. Nevertheless, imagination can make it appear as if something is going on in a lifeless painting or a stream of heat.

Imagine that you get glimpses of something that looks like a world in the steam coming up from it while sitting in a bathtub. Or imagine you look at a drawing or painting of some persons and start to sense their emotions. What you experience to see and feel is make-believe because there is actually nobody in a painting, nor in the world, you grasp in the steam coming from the bathtub. Yet imagination can make it appear as if something is going on in a lifeless painting or a stream of heat.

Allhough projections are not real, they appear to be if you hide their apparent effect is self-made.

Depending on the thoughts projected onto the persons appearing to be in a painting, you could experience them to feel good or bad. And if you think this experience comes back to you from them and not you, it feels like the people in the painting are alive.

By adding more thoughts to your love story – for example, that the persons are coming from the heart – more good vibes seem to come from outside of you, and so you seem to have a loving connection with someone that is not you. But it is a fantasy. There is nobody but you. And that is also a fantasy because, without anybody to define you, there is nothing.

This is to illustrate that what and where you experience being is made from fragments of things you imagine to be outside of oneness. It does not explain everything, though. Who is it that sees something, and is it possible to see anything when there is no more than that which is one?

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

No, it is not possible, and it is not possible to be someone for the same reason. In other words, nobody is having the experience of a world outside of themselves, neither of something inside of themselves. Yet, that which is not possible in reality can seem likely in a fairy tale. However, it is not possible to logically explain how something is possible in the world of a fairy tale because there is no logical way to describe something that is not real. If there were, it would be genuine. That is why so many like to ask, Who am I?

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

Even though nobody has ever found an answer to that, they reckon the question implies that there is one and that it will prove they exist.

It is just as crazy as to ask who is the writer of this article and then start looking for the writer in the article. The re is nobody in it, neither in the world where you appear to be. Nor can that which is real be explained, as it takes more than one to do so.

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

This does not mean that you should not deal with the problems that seem to arise from appearing to be there but that since the brain is the writer of it, you accept the brain as your director. Doing that, the body is free to take care of itself as it is made to do. But you help it, of course, when the brain instructs you to brush its teeth, for example.

You do not, however, try to set the body in balance. The biological system automatically keeps the body in balance when you do not interfere. Nor do you try to connect the body with spiritual powers. The body only wants to be connected with what makes you experience it to be physical, namely the brain. Everything else confuses it. Also, your attempts to make it more perfect or pure through fitness and yoga.

A woman wants to look perfect, and a man wants to be seen with an ideal woman. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The attempts to project your ideas of perfection onto the body come from your misperception of the experiences produced by the brain that otherwise would have helped you to keep the body healthy.

These misperceptions may cause you to think you must get rid of orange peel, obtain six-packs, and other things that go against the body’s natural order. Therefore, you can make it easier for the body – and thus yourself since you believe in residing in it – by not projecting thoughts onto the body but keeping them in the mental sphere where they belong. Doing that, you keep the physical and psychological reality separated so they each can function on their own terms. Therefore, as the biological system is free from your tyranny, it can do what it is made to, namely to take care of bodily and not mental stuff.

This acknowledgement of the physical and mental reality as separate systems is also very helpful in regard to departing the tale of being someone substantial in a tangible world since that is the end of anything concrete. In other words, by keeping the physical and mental reality separated, your time in the tale of a tangible world feels better, and you can leave it without clinging onto the body.

In a world defined by time and space, everything travels in time. It takes, for example, eight minutes for the light of the sun to reach the Earth. Likewise, when the body has been set free, it takes time to register it.

Nothing seems like a lot, when there is no need to be and have anything, as before there appeared to be something, there was nothing.

Thus the reflex to stop the natural flow so you can be in control may still prevail. But if you acknowledge you are mistaken doing that, you set the biological system free to decide for you, and it always chooses what is best for everybody because that is what you are since the experience of others is a fiction made in your brain.

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

Feelings or thoughts you do not like, you hide from your awareness by dumping them into the body. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
In the mental and/or emotional sphere, you perceive yourself to be someone definitive in a body defined by time and space. But as that which is you is formless, and therefore without beginning and end, it is painful to be reduced to someone with a beginning and an end in a world by time and space.

Yet, it is pain that makes you appear to be someone in a material world. When you pinch yourself to discover whether you are dreaming or not, it is the experience of pain that makes you feel alive as someone definitive in a world by time and space.

Since feeling alive, therefore, is bracket together with being in pain, you need to suffer. And since your sole existence as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is based on the denial of the formlessness of oneness, denial is also what you resort to in making the pain bearable. You simply turn down the worst part of it, namely the psychological distress, by hiding it in the body, which as a side effect appears to be more real when the suppressed pain sooner or later causes physical discomfort.

Having established yourself and like-minded as good and others as bad, you live in constant fear of attack from those you judged to be evil. Hence you turn the body into a weapon of defence or attack by either keeping your shoulders deadlocked in a backwards or forward position (respectively the attack and the defence attitude). Since the muscles, therefore, become inflexible and eventually start to ache, you have actually used the body to attack yourself.

A way to keep unwanted feelings hidden inside the body is to hold the mouth closed, so no bad feelings slip out. But you cannot selectively exclude one kind of feeling. The exclusion of one emotion rubs off on the others, so the more a feeling is denied from your awareness by hiding it in the body, the number it becomes and the less alive you feel. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

At that point, you have forgotten that the pain in the body has been caused by yourself, and you blame something in the world for your discomfort. Your body, therefore, becomes a weapon of defence or attack against the world. To effectuate this, you keep the shoulders pushed forward into a position of defence or pushed back into a place of constant readiness to attack – or maybe you push them up in defiance.

The tightened body makes you feel safer and thus to be in control. Significantly if you also push one or both shoulders upwards to further tighten the area and thus prevent the feelings of the body from passing the blockage, so the brain cannot process them, but you mentally can explain them and thus escape feeling them.

This rational explanation of your feelings seems less frightening than to actually feel them. Most either block the incoming flow of emotions to the brain or the outcoming flow of the processed emotions from the brain. In general, a woman does not prevent the incoming flow of feelings from being processed by the brain, but instead, they prevent the processed feeling from being expressed by making up a mental story where they have the power to choose what, when and how much they want to communicate, and thereby being able to manipulate somebody into serving them.

Men, generally, do the same as a woman and for the same purpose, but in the case of men, it is instead the incoming flow of feelings they prevent from being processed by the brain. But whether it is the incoming or outcoming flow of feelings that are held back, the resulting blockage in the shoulders or neck shortens and/or extends the muscles, so the natural balance in the body is destroyed.

There are many ideas of how to restore the balance of the body, but as the cause of the imbalance is not there but in the mental sphere, all they accomplish is that the symptoms in the body are moved or momentarily relieved. To solve the problem, it must be faced where it is made, namely in the mental and/or emotional sphere where there is a sense of not being good enough as you are.

Not feeling loved as you are is a misunderstanding based on the perception that you are something else than the brain has created you to be.

The only thing that will heal the pain in the mental sphere is the undoing of the sick belief that you are someone definitive. This healing, however, most want to avoid, as it results in being nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

As there is also a nagging feeling of being nothing, you wonder how you can ever be loved? Because you are nothing. Only that which is not real can be loved because it takes more than one to love or be loved, and reality is that which is one. So just like you love to hear music coming out of the speakers, although it is not real, the brain loves to see you as something, although it has made you out of nothing. Read more about that in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

Perceiving to be rejected or misunderstood is often a way to justify being depressed or angry and thus to suppress that it is your choice to be so. This is not to say that you should stop that or anything else but that if everything is perceived as it is what it is*, you have nothing to be depressed or angry about.

You will not feel loved, though, if you keep on filtering the feelings you receive and/or release to make it look like you get what you expect, for example disappointment for being let you down. If not filtering what you get and/or giving and perceiving that as ´it is what it is´* to be abandoned feels just as entertaining as to be supported. Therefore, since no feeling needs to be escaped, you do not feel stressed but relaxed, regardless of what you get and/or give.

This does not mean that common sense should be set apart. You may find its best not to express your deepest feelings to your boss. But just like you keep wearing an oversized sweater in the wintertime, even though you feel like wearing something lighter, there is no need to suppress the light feeling.

Nor should common sense be set aside in regards to the damage that has been caused in the body by the suppressed feelings. Apart from feeling them, you most likely need to stretch the shortened muscles in the body, energising them by doing Nordic Walking, or softening with far-infrared heating pads, for example from UTK. The latter also makes it easier to be with feelings as they are. To ensure there are no serious problems with internal organs, you may have to consult a qualified physician. Read more about taking care of the body here.

It is not likely that the physical symptoms caused by suppressed thoughts and feelings will ever be entirely fixed. But since these thoughts and feelings can be brought to light, their leftover physical effect is perceived like the basic self would do, namely that ´it is what it is.´*

Should you, by the way, have distanced yourself so much from the thoughts and feelings you cut off from the awareness in the past and, therefore, cannot bring them back to the mental and/or emotional sphere where they are made, you can, instead, bring them back in one trunk by feeling the discomfort of the strained parts in the body that the suppression of them have caused.

Doing that, without justifying the displeasure, it will eventually be replaced by pleasure. Until then, however, you will probably feel that this is the end of you. No worries. The only thing that ends is the special image of yourself that you have worked so hard to keep together.

Facing the sum of mental and/or emotional discomfort in the above way is, of course, much quicker than facing one thought or feeling after the other. Even faster, though, is the enlightenment of that which is one because it erases all experiences – also to be someone. See hack #6.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

The other duality hacks do the same but over time. Thus you can enjoy the belief in being someone definitive while slowly but surely having it undone. Hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing gives you a taste of how it is to be indifferent to this belief by bringing you into a state of not-knowing and shortly afterwards return you to the consciousness of being someone definitive, but with the memory of that being nothing, so you experience to be in the world but not of it.

This is until that memory takes over completely, so you no more seem to be somebody who can hide there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness. See hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

The duality hacks are not meant to heal the body, but the sick belief that there is someone in it [DRAFT]

Thanks for passing by. This article is in its very first stages of being written. Alexius is in the process of how to make this hack clear. You may, therefore, be better off reading another one. Nevertheless, you are welcome to take your chances.

The article is, like the others in hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, about the disturbances the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection seems to cause in the body. When you stop inflicting it with mental ideas of how to become more balanced, spiritual, or whatever you imagine will make it more perfect, the biological system is set free to heal the body. It is recommendable to have read hack #4.2 Being a self or no-self about the perception ´it is what it is

PART 1
To distract yourself from experiencing anger as an emotion in you, it is excluded from your awareness by dumping it in the body’s darkness – at least, this is how a psychologist explains it. But immaterial issues cannot be hidden in something material. What really happened when you, according to a psychologist, dumped the psychological pain in the body is that you combined it with the way you feel an excruciating part of your body, such as a vulnerable spot in the back.

When you once have concluded your anxiety is caused by physical pain, you by reflex look for the same connection every time you are worried about something. Thus you automatically search the body for a flaw in which some kind of pain can be detected to explain you feel worried. That is until you do not try to get rid of your worries but perceive them as ´it is what it is´ because that reveals they are twofold. Hence there is nothing, in particular, to worry about.

Therefore, since the irritation coming from the psychological problem is experienced to be the same as the discomfort coming from a physical issue in the back, the psychological problem seems to have disappeared. That is why you, hereafter, automatically combine an immaterial problem with a material one to make it go away.

The obsession with the look and performance you expect from the body causes much trouble. If you want to be free from that, the belief that you are someone in a body must be undone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

However, this fusion is an illusion because a psychological issue cannot be combined with a physical one. Thus, its perceived result, namely a psychosomatic disorder, is impossible to heal before seen as a psychological and physical problem. When there is a sense of anxiety for something weird and diffused, you are in touch with the combo’s psychological part. In contrast, the physical problem is experienced to be more straightforward and matter-of-fact.

Do not try to analyse or understand those two feelings. Instead, start off by experiencing your emotional issue unedited and then perceive your reaction to it as ´it is what it is.´ This takes the edge of the psychological problem, so there is nothing unpleasant to hide by combining it with the experience of a physical problem.

Therefore, since the body does not feel attacked by your emotions, it has no need to defend itself by attacking this and that. Instead, it uses its energy on fixing its physical problems. It should be added that the function of the duality hacks is not to heal the body but the sick belief that someone is in it. That is like believing there is someone in a game you play. It is just something you imagine to make it more entertaining.

But even though the duality hacks ´only´ heal the belief that you are someone in a body, having that belief undone, ever so slightly, set you free to deal with physical problems on their terms. Like you support a self-driving car with electricity and once in a while send it to the garage for a checkup. In other words, regarding an imagined physical/psychological combo, you may call for professional assistance to solve the material part of it.

In the case of Alexius, he uses Nootropics supplements to assist the brain and far-infrared heating pads from UTK to support his body’s physical healing. This is not to say you should do the same. Bodies are different, so your body may ask for something else. If in doubt, consult a health care professional. Read more about Alexius´ approach to his body here.


It does not rain because you feel sad, nor does the rain has the power to make you feel bad. That is unless you choose to perceive such a course and effect. Likewise, the body cannot make you feel sad, nor does feeling sad makes the body terrible unless you imagine such a connection. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you see a scary movie, it is experienced to be real because it feels like the fear manifests in the body. The film, however, does not have the ability to scare you and what you feel in the body is purely physical. It is not caused by the events in the movie but by because you perceive them to be frghtening.

You perceived them like because you are conditioned to interpret certain things to be scary. And to make it real that this is what you feel, you project the idea on a body part that already is tense and seems to get tenser when you give it your attention. Thus it feels as if it is the movie that makes you scared.

Sometimes, it goes the other way around. You have a stomach ache, but it does add meaning to your life. So you imagine, the pain is caused by a psychological fissue rom your past. Unfortunately, this perceived combination results in a psychosomatic disorder that is incurable, especially because the psychological part of it most likely is made up. Hence there is nothing to heal but the belief that there is someone who can condition itself to feel this.

PART 2:
To prevent feelings in the body from being processed by the brain, part of the body is desensitised by blending the perception of it with mental ideas. If this benumbing of the body is done in the upper part of the neck, the flow between the body and the brain is cut off. Thus you can decide what the body says and process it as if there is a body-mind connection.

But there is no such combination. On the contrary, the body is material and sees the immaterial ideas imposed upon it as an attack on its integrity. Thus, it fights them by continually keeping the shoulders backwards or forward to hold the body in a mode of attack or defence. On top of that, it might lock the hips and/or the loin to balance the top of the body’s issues with others in the lower part.

Whatever way it started, you hold onto it because these tensions disrupt the natural flow of communication between the body and the brain, so you can bypass the biological system and impose the body with your mental ideas of wellness.

Being in the natural state of happiness does not mean that apparently negative things do not happen. You might get wet by the rain, for example, but since you perceive your reaction to this experience as ´it is what it is,´ your response makes it just as entertaining to be wet as not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In this way, the body is used to establish your perception of being an independent being in charge of itself, even though you do not know who you are and thus neither what you are doing. The body suffers from this, and so do you because believing to be in control, you are out of sync with your nature, which is to serve the brain – just like a self-driving car drives where The Cloud tells it to go.

You are nothing without the brain, except in your own imagination of being someone who lives life in its own way and pace. But this idea does not change anything other than your perception is not in alignment with the brain, so you do not see the happiness the brain reserves for its creations.

It may, at first, seem dangerous not having the body in a position of defence or attack. But since the basic self perceives everything as ´it is what it is,´ it is in sync with the brain and thus continiously being injected with shots of happiness by it. Consequently, any kind of feeling, whether seen as positive or negative, is amusing.

Regarding the duality hacks, it does not really matter how you have mistreated your body to uphold a perception of being the master of it. The hacks bring you into a state of not-knowing in which the slate is wiped clean, so when you return to the consciousness of being someone, you are the basic self. And since it perceives every reaction, it has as ´it is what it is,´ it is in sync with the brain´s script, and, therefore, in the happiness that comes from this. At least, until something appears so special that it forget to perceive the appeal, it feels, as ´it is what it is Nevertheless, if it does not know why and its perception, therefore, is ´dunno what it is,´ it is in a state of not-knowing from where it again returns as a basic and thus a happy self.

Hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one has a fundamental introduction to the basic and special self, the brain’s script and how to perceive it, so you automatically are injected with shots of happiness by the brain.

Hoping to escape the world of duality reinforces the belief that you are there because it takes more than one to escape anything. But you are not in such a world, nor anywhere else, because only in duality can you be somewhere. And there is no duality since non-duality is formless and therefore endless. Hence there is nothing to escape other than the belief that you are somewhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
When you drive a car, you do not try to change how its engine works or looks. You use the wheel, gear, gas and brake pedal and trust the machine to do what it is supposed to.

You may not feel and see the body as it is, but instead, a vision of what it will feel and look like in the future when you have succeeded in imposing your ideas of perfection upon it.

But moving around in a body, you try to bypass its biological system so you can pump up the appearance of the body by forcing it to lift a lot, consuming a special diet, sitting in weird positions to become spiritual, and other things that restrict it and make it impossible for its biological system to connect with the brain, which, therefore, cannot take care of it.

When you do not inflicy the body with your ideas of mindfullness and wellnes, it is perfectly able of taking of itself as a physical entity.

The application of one or more of the duality hacks reestablishes this connection. Not by healing the body, though, but the foolish belief that it is part of you. Hence it becomes like a coat you are wearing or a car you are driving. And just like a car works fine when connected with the engine and you supply it with water and gasoline, the body works as it should when combined with the brain, and you provide it with water and food, keep it clean and sometimes take it for a ride.

There may, of course, cases where particular parts of the body ask for special treatment. Perhaps they need to be massaged, or there is an inner organ that requires special care by professional healthcare services. If such help is required, the body asks for it.

Projecting unpleasant feelings on the body and expecting the problems they cause there to go away when the body is improved is like projecting feelings onto your smartphone and expecting them to go away when the phone is repaired. Just like feelings cannot be mixed with the mechanical parts of a smartphone, they do not mix with the physical nature of the body.

But most often, the body just wants to say that it has no way of dealing with the feelings you hide from your awareness by imagining to dump them in obscure parts of it. The body is a physical entity that is made to deal with physicality only, so it cannot be combined with anything non-physical. Therefore, until you stop projecting unwanted feelings onto the body, you will perceive it to be fucked up.

The tension in the body is often caused by your attempt to control it through mental concepts. The body fights back in different ways, maybe with a blockage in the forehead that it extends to the rest of the body, so it seems to become an armour that can resist your attacks on it.

APPENDIX:
The body does not want to be used as a means to manifest your mental ideas of being balanced, centred or connected with higher consciousness, so it fights your domination by tightening up itself.

Therefore, the symptoms of that, experienced to be here and there in the body, can only be healed when you withdraw your mental dominance of the body. This is done by perceiving your misguidance of the body as ´it is what it is´. That takes the power out of it, so you cannot help but laugh. You may also cry. But that is how it should be. Everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, and they are equally entertaining when both parts are perceived as it is what it is.

This makes you feel complete but maybe also drained because you are not pushing the body to the extremes anymore to feel young and more unique. But then again, since everything comes in pairs, you do not only feel exhausted but also refreshed. At first, though, you may feel more exhausted than refreshed. But perceiving it as it is what it is, one morning, you wake up as if you are in a new body. See hack #4.2 Being a self or no-self.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough. It is a rough draft that will be continuously updated.

Perceiving everything as ´it is what it is,´ any experience feels good enough [DRAFT]

When you do not look for anything to make you feel better, your reaction to everything automatically is perceived as ´it is what it is.´ Therefore, as your response is revealed to be dualistic, there is not something specific to upset you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

This article is a continuation of The fake link between immateriality and materiality. Hence it is about the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection with you in charge of the combo. The perception ´it is what it is ´ corrects this mistake right away. In hack #4.2 Being a self or no-self, you get the basic info about this perception.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The fastest way to repair a psychosomatic disorder is to not perceive it as ´I know what it is´ but as ´it is what it is.´ The first view seems to be categorical, whereas the second one does not have a monocratic but dualistic approach. Thus the second view brings you in alignment with dualism, and since you are in a world of duality, this is the way to go.

It might seem difficult not to rationalise the pain and frustration of a psychosomatic disorder into something you know and, instead, perceive it as ´it is what it is.´ It may help to split it into a psychological and physical issue, so you can perceive each of them as ´it is what it is.´ But then again, splitting up the psychosomatic disorder may seem difficult because you have distanced yourself so much from the psychological issue that it seems impossible to find it in the psychosomatic illness.

No problem, this confusion, you just perceive as ´it is what it is.´ By doing that, you enter the duality flow. Read more about that in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality. It will guide you on how to heal the psychosomatic disorder. In other words, you can go on as usual. There is nothing you need to change but your perception of it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you perceive your response to an experience as ´I know what it is,´ you have quickly chosen between different point of views to see which one will prove that you know better. Meditation cannot stop this hectic and unpleasant movement of thoughts required to appear as if you are in the know. But if your reaction to an experience, instead, is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ there is no knowledge you have to prove and thus no need to hunt for ideas that seem to confirm you are on top of it. Consequently, you are at peace.

Should you wonder how to differentiate between physical and psychological feelings, you can count on the former being annoying, the latter overwhelming and the perceived combination of them worrying. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Everything comes in pairs of opposites in a world of duality. That is why singular opinions and feelings are fake, and you need to imagine parts of your body will hurt if you do not prevent the breath from passing there. Holding back the breath in this way breaks up the duality pairs into singular elements independent of each other, so you seem to be something special instead of dualistic. This self-deception cannot be solved by breathing exercises. They seem to confirm the fantasy that you are in charge of breathing. But you would die very soon if you were to manage the breath because you would forget it.

However, if you perceive your single-minded opinions and feelings as ´it is what it is,´ each of them is revealed to be paired with its opposite. Since your views and feelings, therefore, are twofold, you are in the duality flow. Read more about that in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality. Hence, there is no need to imagine being in charge of the breath and thus able to set up a particular state of mind.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you wonder how to differentiate between physical and psychological feelings, you can count on the former being annoying, the latter overwhelming and the perceived combination of them worrying.

And if you do not know when you hide specific feelings, you can be almost sure this is what you do if you generally keep your mouth sealed. In most cases, that is an attempt to prevent feelings from coming out. Keeping the shoulders back is often a physical expression of attack, whereas keeping them forward may be an attitude of defence. Thus you, either in an offensive or defensive way, insists on having or not having a specific emotion – for example, you feel love but not hate or the other way around. Read more about that here.

This separation of love and hate makes you feel fragmented, whereas you feel complete when they are paired. In other words, when hatred and love are coupled, they support each other and give you a genuine feeling of togetherness, contrary to the uncertainty you get when they are separated.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Stubbornly insisting on being in the right will stiffen the shoulders and/or neck and thus create an emotional blockage that prevents the feelings arising out of the body from being processed by the brain as they are. Hence you can take over to process them into what you imagine you should feel according to collectively agreed on concepts that justify what you guess to feel, for example disrespected.

If that is what you, in your culture, should feel if someone is more than 15 minutes late for a meeting, you can in a rational way present others with collectively agreed reasons for being hurt and thus to be in the right, while at the same time escaping what waiting for someone in vain actually made you feel, because justifying a feeling suppresses it and so does rationally explaining it. Thus the only thing you feel is the satisfaction of being in the right.

But since that only last as long as someone is willing to listen to the story of your made-up feeling, the satisfaction fades out when they have had enough. No worries. If you perceive the story as ´it is what it is,´** nothing in it that adds up to something specific, so it cannot be used to justify being unfairly treated and therefore not suppress what you actually feel. Being in touch with that makes you feel so fulfilled that you do not need the satisfaction of being in the right.

The feeling you in this way have gotten in touch with will not trouble you as if not pinned on a story you or others have made up, the feeling has nothing to cling onto. Consequently, it quickly makes a place for another feeling. Should that seem to be an unpleasant one, sadness for example, there is no need to avoid it because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality. So if not suppressed, its roommate, happiness, is also there, so you feel happy/sad.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If your reaction to something is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ the specific meaning you decided your response had will open up and reveal it is not singular but twofold. Thus hate, which is paired with love, does not make you frown but smile. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A psychological feeling, good or bad, seems to have a physical effect if you can find a bodily sensation experienced to be a bit similar. Therefore, as you can conclude they are connected, a specific physical feeling in the chest, for example, is seen as an effect of a particular psychological feeling, maybe heartache. And if you choose to perceive this combo as physical, you have managed to hide your sorrow in the chest.

But you cannot hide something abstract in the body. Nevertheless, you can make up a story where you have gotten rid of your heartache by hiding it in the chest. However, this imagined fusion of the psyche and the body will sooner or later become displeasing because the psychological sphere and the physical domain are not compatible. The disappointment you block from your awareness by sharing your story with others, who, like you, want to believe there is a body-mind connection and that they are in control of it, although they do not even know who they are.

Even though this collective agreement seems to uphold the imagined exclusion of the psychological problem from your consciousness, the issue remains in the darkness of awareness. It is as if you sense something diffused that seems to come from the chest. Consulting a doctor for the discomfort does not help because, physically speaking, there is nothing wrong.

The distress is purely psychological, so it must be withdrawn from its imagined place in the chest and returned to the psychological sphere. This does not mean that you must deal with your psychological issue. Nothing needs to be done other than to perceive your unedited response to it as ´it is what it is.´ This reveals it is not singular but twofold. So, in this case, you see heartache is not alone. It is complemented with relief. Read more about this in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Should you feel rejected by somebody, there is no reason the body should not feel good. Nor is there any reason you would not feel good if the body suffers from a broken leg, for example. That is if you do not mix a psychological problem with a physical one. Doing so is a level of confusion that you can correct by acknowledging that the nature of the psychological and physical issues is different, so they must be dealt with on each of their own terms.

Should it seems too complicated to untangle a combo you have made of psychological and physical issues, you simply perceive your reaction to the psychosomatic disorder it entails as ´it what it is.´ Therefore, since this perception reveals your response is dual, the disorder has no specific effect on you. And since there is no cause without an effect, there is no psychosomatic disorder. Instead, there is a psychological and a physical problem that you can approach in an immaterial and material way.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When a psychological feeling from the past is perceived as´ it is what it is,´ it is not definable. Hence it cannot be linked with an ongoing physical issue to make it seems as it also goes on. Consequently, the psychological feeling is free to follow its nature, which is to pass on. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Whatever is perceived in the psyche to affect the body or in the body to affect the psyche is a made-up connection. This fantasy is undone when you perceive the effect as ´it is what it is.´ And since your problem primarily originates from the assumption that immateriality and materiality are connected, you feel relieved in the psyche. Thus you have no need to inflict the body with ideas of balance, wholeness and whatnot. Therefore, the body is free to deal with itself materially like it is made to do. Should it need help from healthcare professionals, it will let you know.

Since you have been identified with the image composed of you as someone with a body-mind connection, you may feel empty when that image goes down the drain. No worries. Soon you realise how laid-back life is in the absence of this fake unity.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When a psychological feeling from the past is perceived as´ it is what it is,´ it is not definable, wherefore it cannot be linked to a physical sensation to make it seems as if it goes on. Hence it is just a fleeting moment of nothing disguised as something.

The same applies to a present feeling of something physical. When perceived as ´it is what it is,´ the feeling is not defined by you, and a potential link to a psychological feeling is broken, so the body can deal with it in its own way.

However, it can be too late for the body or a healthcare professional to heal the problem. Having chronic inflammation, for example, is, therefore, something you perceive as ´it is what it is.´ Hence the irritation that may seem to arise from this is not linked to the physical feeling of the inflammation, and the body can help you live with the sickness as it is.

When perceiving a problem as ´it is what it is,´ you step back from the idea of being in control and thus of fixing it. Therefore, both the psyche and the body can deal with their problems in their own way without being interrupted by your foolish idea of unity.

This does not mean that you do not assist the body by keeping it warm, supplying it with a place to sleep and, if needed, supplement it with medicine and vitamins. Maybe with the help of a healthcare professional. In the case of Alexius, he uses the internet to find something to supports his body, for example lacrosse ball, nootropics and Far Infrared Heating Pads from UTK Technology,

But it means that you do not pump up the body through fitness or try to change the rhythm of the breath, for example. Believing that you are in charge of yourself is absurd. Going down the stairs is such a complicated process that it would take at least a day if you had to control it. And you would die in less than a minute if you had to remember to breathe.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You hold back the breath to block thoughts and feelings which do not fit into the image you have constructed of yourself. Then you do exercises to correct the mess up breath. But manipulating it further only makes it worse. The problem is not the breath but that you think you can manage it. It needs to flow freely, so do not try to solve a problem with the breath by exercises. Instead, step back and do nothing, so the breath flows unhindered by your ideas of balance, wholeness and whatnot. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you enhance the sense of pain in a broken rib by combining it the fear of destruction, you expect to feel severe pain when the breath moves through the broken rib. However, do not try to overcome that by pushing the breath through that area. It is natural to hold back breathing if you expect it to hurt when it expands the rib.

Unfortunately, the breath is often held back to perceive particular spots in the body as problematic. This is not healthy, nor is pushing the breath. Both approaches imply you believe to be in control of breathing. This is self-deception because you would quickly die if you should remember to breathe.

The solution to this is not to let the breath be. This idea comes from the belief that you are in charge. The key is to step back, so you are out of the way. It is done by perceiving the fear your problem seems to cause as ´it is what it isThat reveals fear is not alone. It is complemented by confidence, which is defined by fear that is determined by confidence.

In this interplay, called the duality flow, you feel complete and therefore free. Hence there is no attempt to interfere with the breath, so it runs freely despite physical issues. Read more about the duality flow in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

That being said, it might hurt in the broken rib. Still, not as much as imagined, and compared to the joy of a whole breath, it is nothing. Especially, because an unrestricted breath lays the foundation for the healing of the body.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When your reaction to something is sadness and it is perceived as ´it is what it is,´* you also get gladness. First of all, because everything comes in pairs, but also because if something has not made you happy at some point, it cannot make you sad. For example, when your cat dies, your sadness is related to the many years of gladness you had had when it was alive.

If you feel sad and it does not make you glad, you have chosen not to perceive it as ´it is what it is´ but ´I know what it is.´*

Should you, however, make a perception that states ´I know what it is,´* you will not feel happy/sad, as the sadness becomes sticky via the story you make to justify that ´I know what it is.*´ Not so much because of the story but because you spent much time trying to make others believe it, so it can be established, you have been unjustly treated, and that is the reason you feel sad.

Since IBS is a sickness that cannot be measured physically, it is most likely caused by psychologically problems you excluded from the awareness as something of yours by hiding them in the stomach.

In other words, the feeling has been replaced by a rational expression about it that you can use to suppress the real feeling from your awareness and hide it in the darkness of the body, often in the stomach, where the repressed feeling, in an attempt to escape its imprisonment, causes a psychosomatic disorder like IBS.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since feelings are shaped by the way we perceive something, what we feel is our own responsibility. However, any kind of feeling will entertain us when it is perceived as ´it is what it is.´** Regarding feeling amused, it does not matter, therefore, what you have decided to feel when it is perceived as ´it is what it is.´**

The stories that you make in which you appear to know how everything fit together, sooner or later clash with the actual experiences of the world where you appear to be.

If you do not perceive what you feel as ´it is what it is,´** but as ´I know what it is,´** you become numb because a feeling can only be perceived to be known when explained, which suppresses it. Thus you do not feel entertained but bored. To make up for that, you enhance the perception ´I know what it is´** with stories that seem to confirm this and thus to make you feel good about how important you seem to be.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is your disgust for others based on the assumption that you know better, which keeps the body tightened. This does not mean you should try to stop complaining but that you should perceive your reaction to them as ´it is what it is.´ For example, if your reaction to your grievances is interpreted as shame, you will see that this single-minded opinion actually is twofold and that shame is complemented by praise. Since that is what defines shame, this feeling becomes very authentic, just before it marks out praised and you feel completed by this interplay.

CANCELLEX The fake link between immateriality and materiality, Part 2 [DRAFT]

Willingness to feel the emotions that seem to scare us reveals that they are not something but nothing. Like the sounds, you hear walking on an empty street do not scare you when you turn around and see they come from the wind playing with the leaves. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen

PART XXX
The moods that you like and perceive to reflect who you are, have been materialised in your body – or rather in the way you choose to perceive it. Thus these states of mind can be recalled when something troubles you. But since you also have projected the emotions you do not like onto the body, parts of it might seem to fight your favourite mood.

That is unless you discard the link you have made between physical and psychological feelings and are willing to be in the emptiness that arises from not your own conditioning to feel something specific. It may seem scary at first, but there is nothing to link it to since you are in a void. Thus you realise, when there is not something specific, there is not something to cause problems. Thus you are in the bliss of nothing.

Applying the duality hacks, your conditioned expectations to what you should feel are undone, so you can be in the bliss of nothing.

That being said, just like a pencil needs an eraser to undo its scribblings, you need a duality hack to cancel the link you have made between physical and psychological feelings. This could, for example, be the empty breath.** It is not something but nothing, so that is what it sees. In other words, your link is not acknowledged as something, neither is whatever it links, so you are in the bliss of nothing. See hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´, and the bliss of not believing to be someone for more info about the empty breath** and hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing for how to connect with it.

When you react to something, it is not due to what others do or say but how you have conditioned yourself by linking physical and psychological feelings. It is, therefore, not what they say or do you want to go away but how it triggers the pain of this link in you.

When the body is not used to materialise the feelings you believe establish what you want to be and hide those feelings not supporting it, it is free from your dictatorship. So are you because then the body is not an instrument for conditioning anymore.

Having conditioned yourself to feel something specific in case of specific events, so the perception of yourself as special is upheld, you always are on the lookout for specific reactions in the body that can confirm this.

This automatically happens when connecting with the empty breath** (or applying one or more of the other duality hacks) because the state of not-knowing that this entails wipes the slate clean, so you return to the conscious experience of being someone as the basic self.* Since the script of the brain cannot be changed – only the perception of it – this does not mean you are free to do what you want. But you are free to perceive the script as it is instead of compulsively making up perceptions that seem to change it to something you have conditioned yourself to believe is better.

In sync with the script, you do not try to become happy from being and having something special because you are continuously injected with shots of happiness by the brain for supporting it.

As everything seems the same when being happy, there is no diversity from which you can choose something to be more exciting than something else, and thus no hope of something better to come. You may, therefore, find being in a constant state of happiness to be boring and choose to improve the basic self by making a perception of it in which you seem to be the centre of exciting things as a special self.

This is the end of happiness because now feeling good depends on being and having something special, and it never lasts. But also because the special self is founded on the idea that there must be something better. So no matter what it achieves in being and having, it is never good enough. There must be something better.

Fortunately, the frustration of never finding something better can, if unedited, ignite a take-off to the empty breath,** so you again have the slate wiped clean and return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive as the basic self and thus are injected with shots of happiness. Eventually, you are so happy that there is no more to ask for. Hence the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is undone.

Since that is the whole purpose of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and since being conditioned or not requires more than one, it really does not matter what you are or whether you are tense. Yet it may matter in the process of having the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is undone. Without conditioning and a tense body, the process of it is so much more fun. Fortunately, you can have your cake and eat too. You can keep any conditioning if you perceive it as it is what it is* because then its built-in expectation of a particular outcome is undone, so you are happy no matter what that is or if you are tense or not.

So not need to make it your new purpose to become free of conditioning and tensions or anything else, for that matter. Rather stick to the undoing of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one because there is no behaviour or anything else to get rid of as that takes more than one.

In hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, we talk about the awkward sense of something unfamiliar that comes when psychological and physical feelings are combined into a psychosomatic disorder. If not trying to change the awkwardness into something more pleasant, the unedited energy of it ignites a take-off to the empty breath** that replaces the pain with the painless feeling of emptiness

This may at first be experienced as more disturbing than a psychosomatic disorder because it sets aside the sense of being someone. But if that is not avoided, you are walking on clouds of bliss.

INTERLUDE
When you suppress the feelings you perceive to be wrong, the ones seen to be correct are also excluded because, in a world of duality, everything comes in pairs. Since you always look for approval, you do not suppress that. But since it is paired with shame, you cannot help but feel the embarrassment of being an oppressor.

To distance yourself from this feeling, you project it partially on others, your father or boss, for example. But doing so, their approval only seems to be partial. Thus you feel, you are not good enough. If, however, perceiving that as it is what is, it does not result in feeling inadequate. Thus the need to blame somebody for putting you down is gone.

The more you exclude/suppress, the more inadequate you feel. Unfortunately, you probably conclude that to resolve that, you need to eliminate even more. And on it goes until you are so restricted by your editing of yourself and others that the built-up frustrations ignite a take-off to the empty breath.** It wipes the slate clean, so you perceive everything as it is what it is,* and thus are equally entertained by so-called bad things as good ones.

 

When you justify a feeling with something you judge to be wrong, you disguise the feeling behind a mental story of being treated unfairly and thus feel huffy. But you only pretend to feel this because it fits in your story which hides from yourself and others that you actually feel frightened.

You are afraid of everybody because, again and again, you have avoided the awareness of what you judge to be feelings of darkness in yourself by projecting them on others. Hence you feel guilty and constantly go in fear of their retaliation. This would be too shameful to tell when you feel attacked, so you invent a story that justifies that you feel something else caused by somebody. Hence they appear to be treating you bad and you to be innocent and good, so you can conclude there are no feelings of darkness in yourself.

This set up makes you feel stressed, which you, of course, blame somebody else for by making up a story that disguises you are stressed, so you can perceive others to be disturbed and you as relaxed, while you stresses on, and, therefore, maintain the tensions in the body and its attitude of attack/defence. Read more about that here. Everybody else knows you always look for something to attack, but they do not say anything because they do the same. That is why they recognise it in you.

To hide that you hate the whole world, you meet in special groups where everybody treats each other per a collectively agreed way of being united, for example by hugging and sharing. It is not love, though, but a wish to hide hatred that unites the group. This nobody wants to acknowledge, least of all they want to speak about in the group because anybody who does not have the self-control to censor themselves to only speak and act within the language of love established by the group, or its guru, is expelled from. And then there is nowhere to go where you can find relief from your despair.

 

When a ball is coming your way, it´s a natural reflex to respond and following such reflexes is pure fun.

When a ball is coming your way, it is an automatic reflex to respond to it. Automatically following such reflexes is natural and invokes the memory of how easy it is when you are nobody. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 4:
Sometimes a doctor may check the function of a body by knocking on special points to see if the involuntary movements – also called reflexes – works. But, actually, everything you appear to do in the world where there seems to be more than one is involuntary movements. That is unless you work very hard to make a perception of them, so what and where you appear to be looks like it is your choice.

To make the formlessness of that which is you appear as if it is someone special is not easy. It takes many years of going to school plus many special lessons to learn how to exclude what you judge not to be special.

An image of you as someone special is fabricated by postulating automatic reflexes to be of your own choice and suppressing the experience of the natural reflexes not fitting into the image of you, that you want the world to see.

To fabricate this perception, the behaviour of automatic reflexes is translating into something that seems to be an autonomously choice of someone specific. And by learning how to suppress the reflexes that do not fit into this image of being unique and independent, you become a person who seems to do everything by their own choice. In contrast, those judged to be outside of you seem to be doing things against or favouring you by their choice.

Undoing the belief in being someone special is like taking a step into the unknown – but as life cannot be known, that is exactly where you will find it.

The specific appearance of you that, like a puzzle, has been put together through trials and error is believed to be separated from what you have decided not to be and thus perceive to be outside of you so that it seems the world consists of you and different individuals living an autonomous life.

When this is believed to be a game that you are playing, it is easy to play along, but when believed to be real, it is hard work because you always have to suppress the natural flow to appear as someone living your own special life in your own way and pace.

It is so much easier just to go with the flow of the natural reflexes. It also feels so much better because going with the flow, you feel fulfilled, so you do not need to be special. Being nobody is great because then there is not somebody else – and that is so peaceful.

 

 

BASIC – SPECIAL SELF

The special self* believes everything would be much better if others would listen to it and follow its lead. Yet, it seldom has a solution to the things it points out as wrong – at least not one that can be implemented. Its primary focus is to find faults in others so they can be blamed for having caused its negative feelings, and they, therefore, are disassociated from the special self, which thus appears to be positive.

Since blaming others for its own negativity makes the special feel guilty, it feels relieved when somebody else is convicted for a crime. This makes it feel that the guilty one has been found, and it, therefore, does not need to fear being punished for making others wrong to make itself look right.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is crucial for the special self not to feel any emotion as it is so that the image it has made of itself does not crack. Hence it suppresses all feelings and become so numb that it cannot feel anything but the fear of them surfacing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Should you have conditioned yourself to feel relaxed when you hear a specific kind of music, you find yourself as a part of a play, where you imagine what you should feel every time you hear this music. In other words, you do not feel what you feel but what you imagine you should feel in this situation. And as most of what you believe in feeling rests on your conditioning, you are hardly ever in touch with your emotions but what you have been conditioned to feel. This suits the special self very well. It does not want to feel its feelings as they are, but how it imagines them according to the story, it has made up of who it is.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self knows there is no need to unite anything in the world because all of its experiences are produced in the brain, so they are already side by side – just like everything is together on your hard disk or in the cloud even though they seem to be separated on your screen. The special self, on the other hand, believes all experiences are created by itself from here and there and thus not together. Hence it tries to control them to unite them or create some kind of consistency or synchronicity. But since every experience is made and regulated by the brain and not you, this is impossible.

But it is possible to make a perception of the experiences created by the brain so that everything that does not attest to you being independent is excluded from it. Since the perception of the excluded is dumped in the experience of vulnerable parts of the body, the special self ends up having psychosomatic problems.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the past, the special self makes up a story of hate and revenge to use as the foundation for how to perceive the present so that it seems to justify its hatred and confirm its past judgment of others as evil. And since the past, therefore, appears to repeat itself, the special self can rest assured in its perception of itself as good and others as bad.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If somebody triggers an old feeling of rejection in the special self, it first interprets this as an attack on its entity, next it justifies feeling rejected with the attacker. Since the focus, therefore, seems to be on the attacker, the feeling appears to be there and, thus, to have left the special self. Should the attacker expose this projection, the special self points out something from the past that makes the attacker feel guilty. In this way, the special self succeeds in feeling good by making somebody else look bad.

BM The fake link between immateriality and materiality [DRAFT]

Those who think their body should be transformed and become more spiritual needs to be more physical. The body is solely material. Hence it cannot be mixed with something immaterial. Consequently, the body-mind connection is a fantasy. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, it is advisable to have read hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one. It spells out the basic and the special self. You may also benefit from reading about the perception ´it is what it is,´ which establishes that you are tuned into the brain’s script, wherefore you feel satisfied. See hack #4.2 Being a self or no-self.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The assumed link between a problem in the psyche and the body, or vice versa, is a fata morgana. Materiality and immateriality do not mix. Hence there is no psychosomatic disorder to heal but physical and psychological issues that must be dealt with in a material and immaterial way. This is a process over time. But it can be shortened by perceiving your opinion about the psychosomatic disorder as ´it is what it is.´*

The different ways to undo the belief in a body-mind connection we explore in this hack. But as always, in the case of a world where there seems to be more than one, it could have been covered more thoroughly. However, the purpose of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not to present a complete explanation of how and why we appear to be somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one because we are not there or anywhere else, as it takes more than one to be somewhere, and there is no more than that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To turn the basic self into a special one, everything judged as embarrassing you exclude from the perception of yourself. The banned thoughts and feelings you hide from the awareness by combining them with physical feelings coming from weak or deformed parts of the body. Hence psychological feelings in the future are experienced as physical sensations. So when a suppressed psychological issue is triggered, you are not aware of it because you think your experience is physical.

No matter what medicine you take or diet you follow to stop the discomfort in the body, an abstract feeling of pain remains, namely the psychological issue hidden in the physical experience of the body. This pain comes from the psyche, and it does not go away before it is dealt with in an immaterial way.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

How can you claim to do things in your own way, when you do not know who you are? Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Imagining that the body is a product of how you perceive the world or of something spiritual is like thinking that there is a connection between the body and the clothes that follow it where it goes. The clothes have no love or anything else to give the body and vice versa. The clothes and the body are not communicating with each other at all. Likewise, you are not connected with the body, although you believe in using it. It is governed by the brain, and so are you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you think you are in control, you are under enormous pressure because you must always look for thoughts that you can use to compose a perception of your experiences, which seems to prove that you, and not the brain, control what you do.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The body, like everything else experienced, is a construction of thoughts. Nevertheless, it has been made to interact with structures that, just like itself, appear to be material. That is why it interprets attempts to integrate it with non-physical feelings and ideas of spirituality as an attack that it has to defend itself against.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To think that you can hide unpleasant feelings in the body is like thinking that you can hide them in a wall. Emotions are immaterial, so it is not possible to bury them in something that is material. It is, however, possible to believe this can be done. And if you do that, you will look at the body or wall as if there are hidden problems in it, even though they consist of nothing but material elements, and the hidden issues are in your perception of them.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You will never find anything physical in the digital world. It is solely digital. Likewise, you will never find something physical in the psychological sphere or vice versa. That is why the concept of a body-mind connection is a scam.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you want to make them last, you must combine them with something more lasting, like physical feelings. Immateriality and materiality, however, do not mix, so the combination of them is purely speculative. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The nature of non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you experience a specific one to be sticky, it is not the work of theirs but of yours. It is you who does not want it to pass. For some reason, you need to make it last. It can be love, hate or any other feeling that seem to return again and again. You achieve this by combining the emotion you want to last with a part of the body.

If it is a specific love you want to last, you combine it with a pleasant physical feeling in the heart, for example. But if it is a particular memory of hate you want to hold onto, you link it with pain in the chest. However, those connection are not possible because feelings are abstract, and the body is concrete. Nevertheless, it is possible to conjure them up mentally so that every time you feel a specific kind of love, you think you feel something nice in the heart. And every time you feel hatred towards someone specific, you prolong it by sensing something weird in the chest.

Unfortunately, since one part of these feelings in the chest is suppressed, and the combination of physical and psychological issues is imaginative, as there is nothing immaterial in the chest, you have a problem in the body that cannot be addressed. That is until you split this psychosomatic disorder into a material and immaterial issue, so you can deal with each one on its own term. In this case, you confront why you have a need to prolong a specific feeling of love. You then consult a doctor, who may rule out the heart as the problem and suggest it is the muscles.

But most people do not want to wipe out the idea of a body-mind connection. They want to keep their imagined union of immaterial and material issues alive because then it seems possible to appear as if they have a feeling they do not have. Should it be questioned that they have this feeling, they can refer to the bodily symptoms they explain caused by that feeling. They love talking about body-mind connection because that makes it look like they control themselves, even though they do not even know who they are.

Should you want to undo the imagined combination of immateriality and materiality, a willingness to not remember what and where you believe to be is all that is required. Being nobody, there is no need to make feelings last so they can define you as somebody.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you have combined a psychological feeling with a physical one, you want this combo either to hide or prolong the psychological feeling, so you need the part of the body from where the physical feeling arises to remain as it is. Thus, on an unconscious level, you resist any attempt of healing this part, until you do not have a need to not hide or prolong the psychological feeling you imagine to be hidden there and you, therefore, can deal with them in each their own way.

Facing the psychological part of the combo takes no time because all psychological feelings are fleeting. The physical part, you deal with by stepping back so the body can heal itself without having to live up to your theories of wellness and wholeness.

Since you probably have suppressed the psychological feelings you have combined with a physical one, the above may seem to be an impossible task. No worries. The psychological feelings often reveal themselves when you are willing to not manipulate them. If not, you simply perceive your reaction to a physical feeling that seems not only factual but also abstract as ´it is what it is.´*

This renders it indefinable by you. Thus the body is free to define the physical part of it on its own terms and heal in agreement with that. Since a psychological feeling is fleeting, if not manipulated into oblivion or something lasting, this part of the combo returns to its temporary nature and flu off when you include the exposure of it as it is.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When we project the weaknesses of our personality onto the way we feel the vulnerable parts of the body, such as the stomach, our perceived flaws have been excluded from our awareness. That is how we fool ourselves to feel better. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

For years there has been an unhealthy idea about uniting body, mind and soul with you as the master of the combo. This approach has done much harm to the body. First of all, you are not the master of your appearance – only the perception of it. Secondly, the body is a physical unit built to deal with material matters and not mental, emotional or metaphysical ones. Like the digital media where you are reading, this is made to deal with the digital world and not the physical one.

You exclude from your awareness what you do not like about yourself by imagining you combine it with the feeling of a vulnerable part of the body. Thus your psychological problems seems to be hidden inside a bodily problem.

In other words, you cannot blend immateriality with materiality. However, you can imagine it, and that your psychological problems, therefore, can be hidden in the body. But it cannot see non-physical issues, so it feels attacked by your attempt to dump psychological problems in it. Hence it shoots off here and there, and you end up with psychosomatic disorders. They cannot be healed until you are willing to take the psychological issues back to the immaterial sphere, where they can be dealt with on their own term.

Doing that may at first seem like you are going insane or being tortured. No worries, as long as you do not edit the unpleasantness, it will not remain for long because the nature of unedited psychological feelings is to pass. Read more about this process in You undo the belief in duality by enjoying it, Part 1. Thus you do not have psychosomatic disorders anymore but physical issues. Fortunately, the body is an expert in dealing with physical problems. Should it need assistance from a health care professional, it will let you know.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Psychologically concepts of how to attain physical wellness do not work because immateriality is unable to experience materiality. Just like clothes on a body have no way of understanding what moves them. In other words, although the clothes on the body seem to be closely related, they cannot relate to each other.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no ego, it is something we conjure up to explain, it is not our fault that we are not what we should be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Feelings only seem to be conflicting if specific ones are judged to be wrong. When any kind of feeling is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ there are no conflicts. Thus feeling angry is not at odds with feeling peaceful but two sides of the same coin.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There are physical and psychological feelings plus a feeling of emptiness, which is pure bliss (see hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone. But there are no spiritual feelings because spirituality is that which is one, and it takes more than one to feel something. Since oneness is formless and therefore endless, there are no feelings unless you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are written within the context of that belief. In hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, we take a closer look at the combination of physical and psychological feelings. That combo brings about a psychosomatic disorder, which feels like being in a cage made of grievances, fear and anxiety as long as it is kept together. But when broken, physical and psychological feelings in each their own way results in joy.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you pinch yourself in the arm, for example, you feel something physical. Concluding that this means you are alive, you combine the physical sensation with a mental statement to make it appear tangible, so it can prove you exist. But that which is real needs not to be validated. Actually, its existence cannot be confirmed because it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to authenticate anything. In other words, when something can be verified, it is not real. That is why there is a need to prove that it is real.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough. It is a rough draft that will be continuously updated.

(WIS) Happiness cannot be found. It comes effortlessly all by itself [draft]

Everything is always going your way. If it does not seem so, you are not going your way. Not in the sense that you are going the wrong way. That is not possible. But in the sense that you perceive it in a way that is not beneficial, namely as if the world revolves around you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Although it is easy and straightforward to be in sync with the stream of thoughts that constitute the script of the brain – especially as it happens effortlessly if you do not interfere and the result is constant shots of happiness – most do not want to be in sync with the brain. They want to an independent being who can do things in their own way and pace. That is why they choose to perceive the script of the brain in such a way, so they seem to be the master of it.

As the script of the brain is made for entertaining the basic self and those perceiving themselves to be more special think it is stupid, they spent much time and energy on creating a perception that excludes those elements of the script that does not fit into the image they want to produce of themselves as special. But their apparent independence of the script does not result in getting better, nor happy but one who does not feel good enough.

It is not just ultimately speaking that the concept of being independent is an illusion. Also in the context of where it is made, because nobody can create a thought themselves. They are all received from the brain – just like a self-driving car does not make the instructions, that it uses for driving, but gets them from the cloud (read more about that here).

The thoughts the brain uses to construct the script of your appearance as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one are beyond the control of any other than the brain. It has, however, made a pool of thoughts from where the consciousness it has installed in the self freely can pick the thoughts it wants to use for its own perception of the script. Both the creator and the created, namely the brain and the self, need this to be done because it is the perception of the script that seems to establish, that its story of a tangible world where you are someone substantial is a real.

The special self, however, does not want to perceive the script as it is but how it ought to be according to the concepts of nationalism, capitalism, spiritualism or another ism that makes the special self appear to be in charge of its own life as well as part of something better and bigger. But as this perception is formed from thoughts that are created by the brain, it is self-deception to insist you are an independent being.

Regardless your perception is in sync with the script of the brain or not, you cannot plan for something to happen if the script has not scheduled it to do so. If your perception, however, is in sync with the script, you feel happy and have no need to plan for anything. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
No matter if your perception is in sync with the script of the brain or not, you will follow it by the letter. See also Part 2 in Happiness comes from not interfering with thoughts and emotions, whereas trying to control them brings sadness. But you are not bound to like it. You can perceive it in any way you fancy as long as your perception relates to the script as it is and not as you reckon it should be according to religious or socialistic concepts, for example.

To make a perception of the script that does not seem to alter it is easy because the brain has, metaphorically speaking, made a pool of thoughts from where you can pick the thoughts that fit how you perceive the script. You can also let the brain do it, which it automatically does if you do nothing because it wants the script to be confirmed as real by having it perceived as something so that it is not exposed as nothing.

Regardless of who appears to make the perception, it is all a show to establish you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one as if you and that world are not made up by the brain. To further establish this as real, the brain injects you with very concrete feelings of happiness, wherefore the experience of being somebody substantial in a tangible world is enhanced.

This you also feel if you have made a perception that is out of sync with the script of the brain and instead with specific religious or socialistic concepts, for example. But in this case, it is not happiness but the absence of it that enhances the experience of being somebody substantial in a tangible world as your perception is based on the belief that you know better than the brain, you reject the happiness it offers you.

But as it is rejected by tightening the areas of the body until it is too numb to feel anything, all the rejected happiness is in your problematic areas of the body. So if you are willing to go down the dark road of pain as well as the bright one of happiness, you can choose between them.

Unfortunately, most try to fend off the pain, and since everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, this also wards off happiness. Hence they try to become happy in their own way and pace. That is never going to happen, though, because what and where we believe to be is the brain. Thus, just like in a dream, everything comes from there. And as already said, it comes in pairs, so you cannot have happiness without sadness and vice versa. Hence happiness is always there.

In hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough, you can read more about using the body as a means to hide feelings and how that results in psychosomatic disorders.

Experiencing to be someone who is doing something in a world defined by time and space, you are in the domain of the brain because that is where the experience of that is fabricated. So the more your perception is in sync with the thoughts that the brain uses to render this experience, the more you enjoy appearing to be in its world. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
It does not matter how you perceive the experiences created by the brain. As long as your perception relates to them, there seems to be ongoing communication between two separate objects. The experience the brain creates of a world where there seems to be more than one, therefore, appears to be real and thus the one believing to be experiencing it.

Having confirmed the experiences the brain makes from nothing to be something, you appear to be someone substantial in a tangible world, which is how the brain intends it to look like. Thus it rewards you with shots of happiness. But not confirming it to be real, you have to look for happiness yourself. Not because the brain withhold it from you but because you reject it. You want to do everything in your own way and pace, which is hard work. And so is not endorsing the script, because making a perception that does not relate to it is complicated.

If you, for example, strictly follow a specific diet instead of the signals coming from the body, the natural sense of being hungry might be judged as unnatural, so instead of going with the perception automatically generated in relation to your appetite for food, you twist the perception into something founded on your specific diet. Hence the perception represses the craving as it is and therefore fends off the happiness it was supposed to entail.

The same happens if you watch a movie and expect it to fit into special ideas how to be spiritual, for example, and therefore avoid to have a natural and effortless perception of the film but uses much effort to twist it into something that seems to confirm your ideas of spirituality or expose how evil non-spiritual people are. But as you thereby have repressed the script of the movie, you will not enjoy it as the director has intended you to do.

So why do most not want to perceive the script of the brain as it is? Because they believe, they know what is best and that everything, therefore, will be better if they, and not the brain, are in charge. The script of the brain, however, cannot be changed. Only the perception of it, so regardless of the perception, the brain is still in charge.

The only thing you, therefore, obtain by revolting against the brain is to be out of sync with the moment as it is and thus not able to feel that every moment is the perfect moment. See hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

This changes when you do not interfere with the automatic formulation of your perception. You may, however, be so accustomed to interfere that it is difficult not to do anything. If so you make a perception yourself that is bound to be in sync with the script by stating that it is what it is.* Getting used to doing so, it is only a matter of time before you do not have to do anything but a perception in sync with the script of the brain generates itself and you, therefore, feel entertained by it.

There is nothing spontaneous about the basic self –  just like a violinist is in sync with the notes of the classical composition it is playing, the basic self is in sync with the script of the brain. Nor the violinist or the self has no room for improvisation, nor for any regret, because everything is already set.

Should you wonder, if you are in sync with the script of the brain, you are out of sync, because if in sync you have no doubts.

Experiencing to be someone who is doing something in a world defined by time and space, you are in the domain of the brain because that is where the experience of that is fabricated. So the more your perception is in sync with the thoughts that the brain uses to render this experience, the more you enjoy appearing to be in its world. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 4:
Being in sync with the script of the brain does not make you better, nor does it ensure that you do the right thing. It is only the special self who feels so wrong that it is concerned about being and doing right. But it never happens because the special self is neither in charge of itself or anything else. Yet it believes that it is because, in its memories of the past, everything revolves around itself.

It is not necessary to do the right thing when in sync with the script, because being wrong is just as entertaining as being right. Nor is there something to make better. The script is the only option you have if you want the experience of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, regardless that appears to a physical, spiritual or immaterial dream world.

Should you not want that, all you need is to not be in sync with the script. Not like the special self, however, who revolts against it by making a perception of the script in which it does not seem to depend on it, although it most certainly depends on what it fights.

To not be in sync with the script you just ignore it, which is done by not having a perception like the special self who says I know what it is,* nor like the basic self who says it is what it is* but simply to say dunno what it is.* Doing that, the perception does not ratify the experiences the brain produces of you as someone definitive. Hence you are in a state of not-knowing from where you can bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one or return to the consciousness of being someone definitive.

In the case of the enlightenment, you are not someone anymore and never was since that requires more than one and oneness is formless, so there is no more than that which is one. If you are not ready to undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, you return to the consciousness of being someone definitive with the slate wiped clean, so you happily can go on as the basic self until you are glad that you cannot ask for more, and the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, therefore, is undone.

No matter what way you go and why you reckon to do it, you are doing that way because the brain has told you to do so. Having a perception that is in sync with this plan, obstacles on the way adds to the entertainment of the trip. Just like they are supposed to do. But having made up a perception where you are in charge, the same obstacles will add to the stress you have from continually having to figure out the way.

APPENDIX:
Since it is the sum of your memories that constitute what and where you believe to be, and that is stored in the brain, what and where you experience to be, regardless it seems to be material or spiritual, is in the brain. And since that has an end, so does what and where you believe to be. But since oneness is formless and therefore endless, everything that is limited by time and space does not exist.

Nevertheless, it can be quite fun to play a game in which it seems possible to be someone with a beginning and an end. That is if your perception of it is in sync with the way it is set up by the creator of this illusion, namely the brain.

Control is the fear of not being good enough [draft]

As all experiences are make-believe, the brain uses the same organ to process them all, regardless you perceive them to be real or imaginary, spiritual or physical, yours or others. So if you do not push away the fantasies judged as incorrect but live them out in your head, you have fun doing that, and so has the brain, so it does not need to ´really´ make it happen. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Even though the brain deceives you by making experiences that seem to attest to you being someone substantial in a tangible world, it is not your enemy. On the contrary, the brain just wants to make you happy. If you do not feel that, you have most likely disassociated yourself from its fabrication as it is by creating a perception of how it should be according to a specific religion or philosophy.

But as everything in this perception revolves around you being independent of the brain and in charge of yourself, which is constant hard work, you feel very stressed.   Though you claim to be in control, you blame the brain for this and meditate or force your body into strange positions to shut off the brain, assuming this will make you feel free from its perceived tyranny and replace frustration by fulfilment.

Metaphorically speaking you should eat all thoughts with much pleasure, because they are just as sweet as you are.

However, the rejection of some or all thoughts as if they are the root of evil does not result in completion but loss. On the other hand, should you perceive all thoughts as presents from the brain, they will not seem to cause loss, nor abundance, but the quiet happiness that comes from being blessed. The thoughts coming from the brain constitute what you appear to be and what you seem to experience because what and where you experience to be is nothing but a construction of thoughts manufactured by the brain.

All the experiences that you believe to have and those you belive others to have are made by your brain. It stores the memories of them that you belive to constitute what you and others are. The appearance of you and others as substantial beings in a tangible world is, therefore, the brain and vice versa. This applies also to experiences of being spiritual.

To sum it up, the brain renders a self in which it installs a consciousness so the self can perceive itself as a substantial being by having conscious experiences of the tangible world that the brain fabricates as if it is outside of the self. Thus, the brain is the same as what you experience to be and the world experienced to be outside of you.

You try to restrict the only friend you have, namely the brain, by dividing the thoughts it produces into good and evil and then exclude those you judge as wrong by projecting them onto others. Thus you no longer perceive yourself to be the good and bad self that the brain has made, but a better one that is only good and made by you only. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Ultimately speaking, of course, you are not the brain or anything else because there is no more than that which is one, and it takes more than one to be anything. Consequently, this article, just like what you appear to be, is nothing disguised as something.

Trying to change something, therefore, is like changing the colour of your hair. Though the new tone makes you look different, nothing has changed. The original colour remains the same. Nevertheless, more or less everybody believes that painting themself with a new colour will make it able to provide them with more money, power, love, peace, silence or whatever they think is going to make them more special and, therefore, more appreciated.

Control is the fear of not being good enough to be affirmed as someone in the world of something.

This wish to change ourselves often starts in our early childhood, where we learned that when we changed our appearance into something our parents considered to be more lovable, we would get more attention and hence a feeling of being loved. Read more about that here. Consequently, most have concluded that by controlling themselves, they can manipulate others into liking them and thus control them as well.

Several events can have led to this conclusion. Maybe your parents tried to make you go to the toilet before you were ready. In an attempt to please them and appear to be the child they want, you decided to control your urination by tightening the muscles in the loin. But the price of getting their ´love´ was that the premature constriction of the muscles blocked the natural flow of the biological system in your body, so the communication between it and the brain was disrupted.

Since then, as the brain has been cut off from the biological system, it has not been able to support the body. Thus it tries itself to fix its problems. The blockage in the loin, for example, it attempts to solve by balancing it with another tension in the shoulder, neck or jaw. The latter especially makes it possible to keep a specific expression in place as if you are happy with those around you.

The life of a self has been planned by the brain, and it cannot be altered. But the perception of it can be changed, so it seems to be in charge of itself. That is done by making up stories that, in retrospect, seems to establish everything is going according to the plan of the self. And if not, the brain is blamed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But this further disrupts the communication between the brain and the body. And though you may get relief in the upper body from injections, massage and whatnot, the relaxation will not last long because the hardened loin will tighten the upper body again in an attempt to balance out the stiffness in the lower body.

Hence you will never feel the automatic healing that comes from the natural flow of a biological system adequately hooked up with the brain. Instead, you get to feel the destruction that a body disconnected from the brain entails – especially when trying to fix this where the pain is experienced to come from in the body rather than where it actually originates, namely in the perception of yourself as not good enough.

In other words, when the body is not used as a means to hide your inferiority, it will not be damaged from your attempt to control life and, therefore, not obstruct the natural flow of the biological system. Consequently, it can be used by the brain to heal the body whenever it has a physical problem.

But if the body has been used to hide your feelings of rejection, it is often helpful to relieve the pain that this has caused in the body with massage or pills, for example, so it does not distract you from correcting the misperception that has caused it. Having done that, you feel good enough as you are, so you do not perceive parts of your personality to be something bad that you must hide.

A straightforward way to correct your perception is to perceive any experience as ´it is what it is.´ This perception reveals that everything is good enough as it is. Therefore, since the darkest experience feels just as entertaining as the lightest one, you are set free, and so are those you judged to inflict it upon you. This feels like forever having your favourite food, or the best sex, for example.

It is probably even easier not to correct the misperception and add another perception on top of it that says it is what is because that takes the sting out of it.

Ultimately, the solution is to undo the belief in being somebody, as that means there is nobody to misinterpret anything. However, hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough is mainly about having a good time while you have that belief undone, so we return to the script of the brain.

There is nothing to be found in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. That is why reading them will hack the belief in being someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

As the script is fixed, the exact same tensions in the loin would have occurred, whether or not you in your childhood perceived that you had to adjust yourself to the likings of your parents to get their love. But had you perceived yourself to be good enough as you were, your perception would have been in sync with the script of the brain and the tension in the loin, not a psychosomatic but a physical problem. And the latter is much easier to deal with.

The above explanation of cause and effect is, therefore, not entirely correct. Also, the script allows you to choose if you go right or left, for example. However, just like in a video game, the subsequent events are fixed.

This is not meant to be an explanation that makes ends meet. Nothing adds up in a world where there seems to be more than one because it is an illusion. There is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. That is what the explanations in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are meant to illustrate. That is why they only are beneficial if used to expose that every experience is a fantasy made by the brain to make you feel entertained by perceiving them to be tangible and you, therefore, substantial.

This explanation is also a fantasy, and so is the idea that somebody is making or having it. Just like nobody, in particular, is causing or having a dream, and there is nothing in it.

Hence Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not a new philosophy with the answers to the world’s problems or why and how we appear to be there as if we are separated from each other. There is no answer to that or anything else than every solution is an illusion because there is no more than that which is one, and it takes more than one to answer a question.

Ultimately speaking, therefore, it does not matter if you are in sync with the script of the brain and thus a happy and basic self as scripted to be, or perceive the script in such a way that that you appear to be more exceptional than scripted and thus a special self who independently of the script looks for its own happiness. But as happiness comes from being in sync with the script, the special self never finds it. Read more about this in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

The brain has installed an awareness in the self it has created, so it can have conscious experiences of being someone. The consciousness, however, does not accept to be a product of the brain, so it makes a perception of itself in which it is independent of the brain and part of something better and bigger.* But as this perception is created with the thoughts produced by the brain, it is self-deception. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That is why, in the context of the world where we appear to be, everything seems to be much easier when the perception is in sync with the script of the brain. Hardly any thoughts are needed for that, and as they compile themselves from the pool of thoughts, the brain has made for this (read more about that here), there are no stray thoughts to disturb you. But to make a perception where you appear to be more special than the basic self, which the brain has created, requires much effort.

You must seek out special thoughts to make this happen, and doing so, they start to scamper around and fight each other, which feels stressful – especially as it affects how you see the world. Therefore, the special self concludes it is best to get rid of some or all of the thoughts or at least slow them down via meditation or something else that supports the perception the special self is in control.

This, however, enhances the problem, which is that the special self perceives itself to be the master and the brain its servant. But it is the other way around. So if it honours the brain for producing the experiences it has of being someone by perceiving them as they are and not as it wants them to be, happiness comes all by itself. Actually so much that the few thoughts required for having a perception in sync with the brain are unnoticed. See also Without the noise of thoughts.

In short, if we do not try to edit the perception the brain automatically generates of ourselves as a servant of the brain, we are in sync with it and thus receive so many shots of happiness that we feel loved and love everybody as ourselves (read more about that here).

As that means you do not spend time looking for happiness, you can read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings without looking for something in them to make you happy. Hence the duality hacks reveal the nothingness of what you believe to be while and/or after reading about them.

Many try to solve the feeling of not being good enough by finding somebody who will admire them because they mistake that for being loved. Others may clean the house, go shopping, eat, smoke, have sex, or whatever makes them forget what they feel. And some may try to resolve feeling inferior by making others wrong.

But none of this works, because the feeling of failing arises from the way you perceive the world should respond to you and not on how it actually does it. Hence not feeling good enough is a matter of perception.

This mispercection can be found by walking down memory lane. But it probably takes a long time and you may miss it. Fortunately, you can correct the misperception right now by perceiving it as it is what it is. It takes the sting out of it so whatever appeared to make wrong does not affect you and you the next time you by reflex make a perception that implies you are not good enough can laugh because it is what it is.

PMT Inclusiveness is a state of not-knowing – and that is pure bliss

img_0270

Feeling relaxed as well as irritated is to forget to appear as someone definitive in a world of duality because the inclusion of both feelings cancels them out. In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, this is called a perfect moment. It does not mean though, that everything is perfect, but that it makes no difference to you what it appears to be. Selfie © Alexius Jorgensen.

Once upon a time, Alexius was into excluding irritation, assuming it would be replaced by relaxation if he could justify the feeling of irritation with somebody or something in the world outside of him.

It is actually Alexius who in third person writes this article. Both he and I are grateful that you read it, because even though we appear to be different from you, the difference is not perceived to make a difference. Neither is the apparent difference between us and Gudruång, who is considered to be the astral voice behind Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings (more about that in the note about Alexius at the end of the article).

Even though this electronic painting done by Alexius on his iPhone is abstract, you may imagine there is something definable there. But that is only because you believe to be someone definitive. If not you would not see something at all. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This is not to say, that we are one in the spirit. There is no spirituality in a world defined by time and space, as spirituality is formless and therefore endless, so we and everything else definable – included astral worlds and whatnot – are an illusion.

But as we are equally illusionary (see the article We are in it together), we are in that sense at one. And as there is no illusion without reality, namely spirituality, we are also one in the sense, that no matter what we appear to be, we are all symbols of spirituality.*

Consequently the apparent difference between the non-teacher and non student makes no difference.

But it was quite stressing always to be on the lookout for something, that he could blame for his irritation so that it seemed to come from somebody or something else instead. See also the article Every moment is the perfect moment – also for dying in the rainforest about his experiences of this when he was rescued by a helicopter after being stuck for two days without food and water in the rainforest.

If you do not keep the opposite sides of a contrast – for example winner and looser – away from each other by projecting one of them onto somebody else, there is no space to separate them, and so nobody can be defined as winner or looser.

Fortunately, he recognised that it is much more comforting to include irritation by feeling it to such an extent that there is nothing else because then there is not something to define him as irritated. This does not have to be carried out when irritation arises, but whenever there is an awareness. It is never too late, including the past in the present and thus cancels it both the past and the present since the latter builds on the former.

When you are nothing but irritated, there is not something to contrast it. Hence the included cannot be categorised and consequently not experienced as something in existence, neither can its contrast that otherwise would be labelled relaxation. Put in short, the apparent difference between the two opposing elements of a contrast is cancelled out when one of them are fully included.

To be fully inclusive does not mean you must take a journey to the past in order to find hidden feelings. They are the foundation for the present, so all that is needed to be fully inclusive is willingness to include the moment as it is.****  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To fully include something does not mean, you laboriously have to make sure every bit of it is included, but that the purpose of the inclusion is to be in a state of mind, where you are nothing but what you include. In other words, it is not about perfection but intention. And should your intention be a bit lukewarm, you are still fully inclusive, if you include the lukewarm intention.

This has nothing to do with acceptance or forgiveness, as inclusion leaves nothing to accept or forgive. Neither does it have anything to do with embracing or owning your apparent thoughts and feelings, as that enhances the belief in being someone definitive instead of undoing it.

This does not mean that every little detail must be included. What matters is that this is your intention. And even if you are not a hundred per cent sincere about that, willingness to be so is good enough.**** See also the article No wrongdoings are possible by using the hacks of Alexius and It is NOT about making a difference.

In a world defined by time and space, the colours we believe to see are based on the RYB colour model, where the primary colours are red, yellow and blue. These colours are subtracted from the colours of light, where the primary ones are red green and blue (RGB). The addition of the primary colours of the world (RYB) results in black and so does the addition of the primary colours in the colour wheel of professional printing (CMYK), while the addition of the primary colours of light results in white – see the middle in each colour model above. A computer, by the way, uses the colours of light. Depending on your conditioning you will either use the RYB or RGB model for perceiving the complementary colour to for example red, which is green in the RYB model and cyan in the RGB model, as you can see in the illustration. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In some ways, this inclusion can be compared to what happens, when we for example experience the colour red to be in a world outside of us and the brain in the same moment generates its complementary colour cyan inside of us to cancel out the opposing colours and replace them by a neutral grey. So while we still experience the bold colour of red in a world outside of us, inside of us, it is a neutral grey because that is always the result of combining complementary colours, which you can see illustrated in the image with the square colours.

This image is a graphic illustration of how the complementary colours of the primary ones in the RGB colour model turn into neutral grey when they are equally combined.

This image is a graphic illustration of how the complementary colours of the RGB colour model’s primary ones turn into neutral grey when they are equally combined. The same applies to any tone of colour mixed by the primary ones. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As this happens so fast and most are not aware of what is going on inside them, you may not notice the complementary colour. But if you stare at red for a sustained period of time – roughly thirty seconds to a minute – and then look at a white surface, you will see an afterimage of the complementary colour, which is cyan or green depending on what colour model you are conditioned to follow. See the explanation of those in the first caption of the colour models. And see the article Without contrasts there is no duality, and so nothing seems to hide non-duality for more comparisons with science relating findings.

The info about colours are based on the research Alexius did in this regard, when he was writing a book about colour theory for a Danish marketing school many years ago.

Returning to our story of not excluding but including irritation, the apparent difference between the opposing sides in the contrast of irritation and relaxation is not perceived to make a difference, when the inclusion of irritation has cancelled out itself as well as its contrast relaxation, or vice versa. And as this state of neutrality or indifference rubs off on other contrasts, they also become neutral and so there is nothing to define you as someone definitive anymore.

´Sentinela´ is the eighth track on this Brazilian album named the same. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Listening to ´Sentinela´ by Milton Nascimento, Alexius is reminded about the first moment, when he appeared to be outside the formlessness of that which is one, and the glorious time he perceived to be ahead as someone separated from oneness. But as formlessness is endless, there is nothing else, so the experience of being outside of it and having a future there is make-believe.

Hence you are in a state of not-knowing, which is no different from the first moment of the world – see the article A perfect moment takes you back to the first moment of duality – where there are glimpses of that which is one in the form of ethereal light, celestial music, intangible sensibility or taste.** In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, this is also called a perfect moment.

When the internet is down, the thoughts about what is possible to accomplish in cyberspace fade out. And until the internet returns, so does the image of what you appear to be there. See also the article The formlessness of that which is you is not in a world defined by time and space.

In some ways this is similar to a state of not-knowing, where thoughts that seem to manifest you as someone definitive do not pass by anymore, so that there is nobody to attribute any thought with a specific meaning, which means there is nothing to hope for, and that is pure bliss.

Nobody knows this, however, before the state of not-knowing is over, and the sweet memories of it reminds you of the bliss that comes from not believing to be someone definitive.

Since a perfect moment is a state of not-knowing, it is not before it is over, that you via vague memories of it become aware, it is also a state of bliss. This is not the same as the enlightenment of that which is one though because that is not a state. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since a perfect moment is a state of not-knowing, it is not before it is over, that you from the vague memories of it remember the pure bliss that arose from not believing to be someone definitive or maybe from the otherworldly visions you may have had. Be aware though that the visions you had have had are glimpses of that which is one and not that which is one since that can neither be seen, heard, felt or smelt, as it takes more than one to experience something.

Check the article The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it, if you want to read more about this – or go through hack #6.3 The inner senses, enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

As already said, cancelling out the difference between the opposite sides of one contrast – anyone will do – is enough to carry you into a perfect moment. But since there are many other contrasts, it ends when you again feel disturbed by the experience of something, you compulsive categorise as a specific feeling and out of habit try to exclude by justifying it with the world.

Being distracted by a world defined by time and space is of course not a problem, when you are willing to include the distraction. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In a perfect moment nothing there are no disturbances, because even though the outer senses still perceive a world full of opposing contrasts, the inner ones do not interpret their apparent difference to make a difference.*** According to them everything is neutral. That is until something is judged to be so wrong or unjust, that it triggers hidden feelings – for example sorrow, anger or anxiety – and you do not include but exclude them by blaming the world for having caused them – or simply doping yourself with food, shopping, music, meditation or pills.

This does mean that you cannot dope yourself with something to become more relaxed. Sometimes the use of traditional or alternative medicine or treatment may bring you in a better position to not exclude but include the horror of feelings.

In the case of Alexius, he finds lots of the suggestions from Dave Asprey, Bulletproof useful in regard to charge the body and its brain. He has no affiliation with Bulletproof though. Nor does he share its goal, which seems to be the usual one of enhancing the personality instead of phasing it out – not knowing that it is the belief in being someone definitive which is the source of all suffering.

You can read about what Alexius himself does in regard to the body in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, Intro and there is more about enhancing the personality versus phasing it out in hack #3.3 Phasing out the personality by not being exclusive.

However, if you choose to include the disturbing feeling, for example hate, a perfect moment returns. To include hate is similar to the inclusion of irritation. In other words, the inclusion of something, whether judged to be from the past or the present, is to be nothing but that, so that there is not something to contrast the included and consequently nothing to define it as a specific experience. Hence its contrast – in this case, love – cannot be defined as a specific experience either. Thus there is nothing but the bliss of emptiness.

By not excluding but fully including that you feel like nothing, the contrast of it, namely that you are everything, is also fully included – and so there is nothing to define and therefore to limit you as someone definitive. Thus you are in a state of not-knowing, which is pure bliss.

It is so easy appearing to be someone definitive, when you do not believe to be that, because then you are never alone. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Instead of cancelling out the apparent difference between the opposite sides of various contrasts by including them one after the other, you can include a main contrast – for example right and wrong – via being nothing but one side of that contrast.*****

Since lots of contrasts are a variation of this one – for example good and bad***** – the apparent difference between the two sides in a myriad of other contrasts will be cancelled out as well. Thus the experience of being someone definitive falls apart, so there is nobody to be bothered about what and where you appear to be. That is a perfect moment.

If the boxes like this one, that pop up here, there and everywhere in this article, seem disturbing in regard to being focused and centred, you have gotten it right. They are meant to do that.

Multitasking or defocussing facilitates a perfect moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To be in a state of not-knowing, you must stop caring about being centred, in balance or to focus and concentrate, as that is deeply founded in separating everything into categories, which is a way of excluding those feelings you do not like by placing them in mental boxes.

In regard to getting into a state of not-knowing multitasking is much more beneficial, because it distracts the brain from focusing, so that it becomes difficult to categorise an experience as different from another. You can read more about multitasking and defocussing in the hack No Monotasking But Multitasking. See Extra Duality Hacks.

The nectar of life also facilitates defocussing and therefore a perfect moment, which you can read about in the article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment.

You should, of course not attempt to drive a car or something else that requires worldly attention in a state of not-knowing. But sitting in a bus, for example, is great for that.

The most basic contrast to include is that of the empty breath, which syncs the inner and outer senses. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

An even more basic contrast to include is breathing in and out. However, the story of that contrast is not part of this article, but it is part of hack #4, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss. If you quickly want to connect with the empty breath, which syncs the inner and outer senses so that peace from the inner ones makes you indifferent to the world of the outer ones, jump straight to the article Take-offs to ´the empty breath´,.

There is no more connection between the body and the mind than for example between the body and the clothes its wearing.

The empty breath also undoes the belief in a body-mind connection. The mind is mental, so it has no understanding of the body, which it looked at as a place to get rid of mental problems by dumping them in the stomach, the back and the neck, for example.

A state of not-knowing is not an out-of-body experience, neither an experience of uniting higher powers with the body, but a state of empty space. See the article Believing to be in or outside the body is equally insane.

Therefore, the body is much better off without the interference of the mind – especially as the body is perfectly equipped to heal itself. You can read more about the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection, that has caused so many psychosomatic disorders, in the next article The absence of noise and silence is a perfect moment and hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough.

Not being exclusive but inclusive is comparable to a person having Alzheimer. Although there appear to be someone there, it is not someone definitive. But contrary to having Alzheimer not believing to be someone definitive is a state of bliss. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you had not excluded something from your personality by blaming others for it, so you can be defined by what they are and you are not, you would not be upset every time they remind you of what you excluded. No worries. As your experience of the present is shaped by the past, the inclusion of a present experience undoes the past as well, and therefore also the definition of you, so next time somebody remind you of the past, there is nobody to be upset about that.

In case you prefer going straight to a perfect moment without having to deal with contrasts or inner and outer senses, you include what you experience to be in this very moment completely unedited. This is not similar to the concept of living in the now, as that is an edited version of a moment, where specific thoughts and feelings are excluded, for example those of the past and the future.

Any moment is a construction of thoughts founded on the past – also living in the now, as there would be no such concept without the past. But when thoughts are included, they become non definable, and so there is neither past, future or now, but a state of not-knowing, which is a perfect moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You can read more about a perfect moment versus the concept of living in the now in the article To see nothing is to not hide that which is you.

In the article What is freedom!? you can read about the illusion of linear time, and that everything happens simultaneously.

The way to a perfect moment is simply to include all thoughts and feelings, whether they appear positive or negative, associated with the past or whatnot.

No need to wonder if hidden feelings from the past has been left out, when you include what you appear to be in the present moment, because that is the sum of the past. You do not even have to worry, if everything in the present moment is fully included, as willingness to so is all that is required.****

Anyway, all thoughts and feelings are related to the past in the sense that your experience of the present is based on your past interpretations of them. Simply put, your present state of mind is the sum of the past, or rather one side of it, so by completely including that, there is not something to contrast it, and consequently nothing to define you. Hence you are in a state of not-knowing, which is a perfect moment.

A perfect moment is not perfect in the sense that there is no heavy wind, for example, but that nobody is bothered by it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A perfect moment is a disappointment in the sense, that it is not an experience of perfection in the world of the outer senses but the usual affair of imperfection. In the world of the inner senses though it is perfect, because in spite of still appearing to be someone definitive experiencing the world of the outer senses, the inner senses do not identify with this experience, so nothing is perceived to be wrong or missing.

This does not mean that you do not appear to be someone in a world defined by time and space anymore, but nobody is worried about its appearance. Hence thoughts and feelings are not considered tools for manifesting you as someone special but simply for navigating in a world defined by time and space. Pain, for example, is used to stop the body from walking on a broken leg and fear from walking out in front of a car.

You are not turned into a strong and powerful being by a perfect moment. More likely you are gonna be like the grass, that everybody steps on. But unlike a proud and powerful tree that breaks when faced with a heavy storm, you bend and rise again when the storm has gone.

Yet pain does not cause someone to suffer, neither does fear cause anyone to be frightening when there is no identification with what you appear to be. For the same reason, thoughts are not experienced to result in anything specific.

Since the experience of you as someone substantial in a tangible world defined by time and space is a construction of specific thoughts, it falls apart when inclusion undoes the apparent separation between thoughts. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Meditation is not needed to stop thoughts, when nobody is having them.

In other words, thoughts and feelings do not appear to have any effect on you or the world perceived to be outside of you, nor do they appear to have been caused by you or anything else, when they are not excluded but included, as that render them non-definable. This is why, the thought construction you believed to be has fallen apart, and a perfect moment is a state of not-knowing.

Although a perfect moment does not seem to last, every moment is a perfect moment – just like the sun keeps also shines, when it is covered by clouds.

As a perfect moment is a state of not-knowing, it must end if you want to experience the apparent excitement of a world defined by time and space. Yet it also ends if there is no longing for something definable because formlessness is that which is one and it takes more than one to be in any kind of state. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This state of not-knowing, will not last very long though if the excitement of being someone definitive in a world defined by time and space seems more attractive than the emptiness of not-knowing. If so you probably twist it into an experience of something definable, for example joy or love, so that you again are someone definitive experiencing something specific in a world defined by time and space. Should this be your choice, stand by it, because by doing so, you can undo it.

Trying to understand inclusiveness and categorise when, why or how long you are in a perfect moment before you either pick up the experience of time and space again or completely leave it behind, you complicate things. To be inclusive is simply to not be exclusive, and as that results in a state of not-knowing, you will not get there through understanding.

Neither will a perfect moment last if you are not attracted to the apparent excitement of a world defined by time and space, because if the experience of it is not picked up relatively quickly******, there is not something to cover that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of that which is one, and as it takes more than one to be in any kind of state, a perfect moment is over.

The world that you experience is devised by you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since life is that which is one and it requires more than one to be seen, life is not visible. So the more you are not seen, the more you are alive. As the world is in the eye of the beholder, you are not seen, when you do not perceive the apparent differences of the world to make a difference.

Simply put, as long as you appear to be in a world defined by time and space, a perfect moment is on and off. And it is more off than on because if the experience of time and space is not regularly repeated, there does not seem to be something substantial to disguise, that all there is and ever was is the formlessness of that which is one since formlessness has no beginning or end. But just a split second of a perfect moment makes the time off from it much lighter.

Nothing needs to be avoided or made better in order to enter a perfect moment. Actually, it is the inclusion of hatred and other feelings, that are avoided by hiding it in your body or projecting it onto others, that makes a moment perfect. In other words, love or a special understanding is not a requirement, but willingness to include the moment as it is more than enough.**** Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius is diagnosed with IBS, so in order not to upset the body, specific foods must be excluded from his diet. Nothing though needs to be excluded from his body or the mind in order to enter a perfect moment, so whether the body is upset or the mind is pure makes no difference, as long as what he appears to be is completely included.

Should he try to edit this appearance in favour of a better one, a perfect moment is not fenced off, if he is willing to also include the attempt to control his image.****

Since there is no more than the formlessness of oneness, a world defined by time and space is an illusion – inclusive the article you just have read. However, it has facilitated you seeing that you are in a perfect moment that is no different from the first moment of believing to be outside of that which is one.

If you remain there, this moment will also be your last as someone appearing to be outside of that which is one, because the belief that there is more than that which is one is undone by a perfect moment.

APPENDIX ABOUT ALEXIUS :
As you probably have read in the above article, Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings seems to come from an astral source Alexius calls Gudruång.******* They are received as unspeakable frequencies, so to pick the appropriate words for translating them into the language of a world defined by time and space, he must have had experiences in such a world, that relates to the messages of them. See also Metaphysical Intro of the Enlightened Non-Teacher.

This does not apply to the enlightenment of that which is one, as that cannot be experienced. His writings about that are rather based on vague memories of when he has stepped aside, so all thoughts making up what he appears to be in a world defined by time and space is extracted by a light so bright that there is not something left to gracefully fall through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one. You can read more about that in hack #4.

According to science the world consists of 99.9999999 percent empty space. The rest, despite it is also empty space and just like a dream consists of nothing substantial, is perceived to be elements of matter making up what we believe to be and see. In other words, the experience of a material world and us as tangible beings in it is make-believe.

In a world defined by time and space, we all are conditioned to confirm its appearances to be substantial and not just empty space. Hence he constantly has to bypass this conditioning, when writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in the same way as he has to bypass the spell checker in a Spanish text editor if he wants to write something in English to prevent the spellchecker from converting English words into Spanish ones, which may have very little to do with what he is trying to express in English.

In each our own way we hope it is possible to live in a world of like-minded people with whom we can share everything. And though it never works out like that, we are conditioned to keep hoping. Nobody is allowed to truth, namely that loving each other in a merry-go-round world is an illusion. There is nobody to love, because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as formlessness is endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The reason this and other articles have been upgraded – or are in the process of it – could be that in the beginning of translating the frequencies from Gudruång into Enlightened Non-Teachings, Alexius sometimes used words in such a way, that they rather confirmed the belief in a world defined by time and space than facilitated the undoing of it.

Part of this could be that he unconsciously tried to incorporate some of his own ideas from the past. Yet it was probably mostly because often he could not find the appropriate words for translating the frequencies. He had no idea of the scope of them, least of all that they would evolve into actually hacks to undo the belief in duality. See Duality Hacks and the others in Extra Duality Hacks and More Duality Hacks.

He just had the vague memories of the enlightenment of that which is one to count on, and as that is totally wordless, there was no words to be found there. It was also not before in the process of writing Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings that he realised, he had to clearly distinguish between the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it. 

To make long short, though he did not have enough words to choose from, when he started translating the frequencies from Gudruång into Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, the words revealed themselves in the process of translating the frequencies.

The above article was originally a note in the previous one If included, irritation undoes the belief in duality, but when Alexius revised that article the note just grew longer and longer and ended up as a long article. Congratulations if you have made it this far.

The inclusion of a feeling does not mean, that you will never experience this vibration again. Yet you will never experience it as a specific feeling, that has the ability to upset you.

To make long short, the revision of this article took a long time. Several side notes turned into new articles, and in order to write about the inclusion of feelings, Alexius had to spend quite some time going through the horror of recognising forgotten ones in himself.

So you can rest assured that if heavy memories are triggered in your process of inclusiveness, he has been there too. This, of course, also applies, if you enter a perfect moment. Actually, in the process of writing this article, he was constantly going in and out of perfect moments to find words for being in a state of not-knowing and leaving it in favour for the apparent excitement of a world defined by time and space or the peace from the formlessness of that which is one.

****) The article How to not be fearful but blissful by not being exclusive but inclusive and Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is about how willingness to be inclusive is enough to undo the belief in a world defined by time and space. And the article You can never lose life is about how being exclusive can be perceived as a confirmation of life, since there would be nothing to exclude if not for that so the very thing that is meant to define you as someone definitive can be used to undo that belief.

*****) Other main contrasts to include if you want to speed up the process of undoing the belief in being someone definitive are within and without, past and future, giving and receiving plus high and low. The latter is very much in the family of good and bad, and for some, this may apply to the first one as well (more about good and bad in the coming article In a perfect moment everything is alright as it is). The most basic contrast, however, is expansion and contraction. If you connect with the empty breath (see the article Take-offs to ´the empty breath´) this rhythmic contrast will slowly but surely undo itself and thereby the whole experience of a physical or astral world, as it is based on the belief that it is possible to expand and contract something (see the article ´Alone together´ you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one).

Nothing appears to be wrong or missing in a perfect moment because nobody is using labels of time and space to separate us. But as you still appear to be in a world of separation, you will after a while either return to being conscious about it by separating everything into contrasts, or completely forget to be conscious, so there is nothing to hide, there is and never was more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

NOTES:


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

Positive thinking is bullshit [DRAFT]

Negativity is just as needed as positivity. A computer, for example, only functions when connected to both the negative and positive pole in an electrical wire. Polarity is the name of the game, which you must adhere to if you want to be in a world of duality. Also, if you wish to leave this game, you cannot do that if you are not playing it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1
If you edit the reaction to something, so it fits the image you have created of yourself, your concept of negativity and positivity tend to get sticky. Thus negative thoughts and feelings, after some time, bring about a constant notion of rejection and the positive ones of approval. Hence you probably avoid negative emotions and seek out positive ones. But just like an electrical wire needs the positive pole as much as the negative one, you need negative thoughts and feelings as much as positive ones to function in a world of duality.

Fortunately, you naturally get them both when not editing the response to your experiences. Therefore, as you do not need them to confirm you are unique, they only remain long enough for you to feel entertained by the interplay of negativity and positivity. Read more about sticky feelings in hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough. and about the interplay of duality in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

Being in sync with your reaction to something as it is and not as you think it should be is like taking a ride on a rollercoaster. You get the polarity of going up and down, but it happens so fast that the fear of going down and the thrill of going up is immediately forgotten. What is left is the same feeling you have after binge-watching a TV show, namely that you are blown out. Therefore, since you, eventually, forget to ask for more, the belief kin being and having more than that which is one is undone.

In cyberspace you cannot get your hands on something physical. That is why nothing from the internet can be combined with the reality of physicality, except at a theoretically level. The same applies to spirituality in a physical world. It cannot be found there. Actually, spirituality and physicality, just like night and day, exclude each other.

So, in the context of the rollercoaster metaphor, the belief in a world of duality is not undone by being detached from the ride but stepping it up and take the full tour with eyes wide open and not holding back. Doing that, you may seem to boil over of hate when it goes down. But when the trip goes up again, you meet the buddy of hate, namely love. And as you do not hold back hatred when you go down, you get so much love going up that, sooner or later, there is no need for more, wherefore there does appear to be more that hides non-duality.

If you want positivity, you must also welcome negativity, as, in a world of duality, everything comes in pairs. In non-duality, you can neither have negative or positive vibes because it requires more than one to have something. Since that also applies to have a shape, non-duality is formless and therefore endless. Consequently, a world of duality is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2
Although there are many books and courses about how to realise or transform oneself, there is no evidence of anybody actually having done that. The reason is simple. The self is not a fact but a belief. Hence the change of the self is nothing but a shift of conviction.

Sometimes this change is called awakening. But since it has a beginning, it also has an end. And when it ends, the excitement you felt at the beginning cannot suppress the suffering that always comes from the assumption that you are someone definitive. Hence you try to get more awakened or whatever you believe will make you feel right. But as every belief is accompanied by doubt, you never get there.

You cannot experience something as positive without having judged something else to be negative. Thus the negative thoughts is a confirmation of the positive ones and vice versa.

When you try to exclude negativity, darkness, anger or whatever do-gooders have told you are obstacles to feel good, you destroy the foundation of duality. It is made by dividing everything into pairs like positive and negative, light and dark, anger and delight, etc. But since it takes more than one to destroy something, you also enhance the belief in duality.

This ambivalence you can either solve by playing the game of duality or undo it. You play the game of duality by perceiving your reaction to negativity as ´it is what it is.´ This perception reveals your single-minded response to negativity is dualistic. So that if you see negativity as evil, for example, it is shown to be paired with good luck. It is not good luck as such that makes you satisfied but the interaction of that and evil. Especially because it sets off the business of many other pairs of duality.

You undo the game of duality by entirely including what you judge as negative. Then it cannot define positivity, which, therefore, cannot explain negativity. Read more about that in hack #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive is freedom from being someone definitive. In other words, not being exclusive but inclusive, the foundation for duality disappears. So does what you believe in being, as there is nothing definable in non-duality since that requires more than one.

Besides having fun playing the game of duality, eventually, it also leads to the undoing of it, as everything with a beginning is bound to end. But that seems to take some time. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

PART 4
You do not have to do something to be spiritual. On the contrary, spirituality is that which is one, and it takes more than one to do something. Besides, oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing but spirituality. In other words, if you seem to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are hallucinating.

The peace you look for via mindfulness, quiet music and whatnot does not have the energy to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. Actually, it has so little energy that you probably fall asleep and mistake heaven for being in dreams.

Being angry is a terrific way to see a world where there seems to be more than one is a mirage. That is if you do not try to control the anger because when it is unbounded, it ignites a take-off to the empty breath (read more about that in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing). In its emptiness, the experiences of something is perceived as nothing.

This does not mean you do not experience separation anymore. But that you do not perceive the apparent differences in the world to make a difference (read more about that in hack #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive is freedom from being someone definitive). Therefore, since the belief in being divided is undone, there is nothing to uphold the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one as real.
