3.5 How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ (in the process of being updated)

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

DO NOT THRUST THIS ARTICLE
If not thrusting this article or anything else, including your judgment of this and that, there is nothing to define who is reading this. Thus there is not someone definitive covering the transparent bliss of nothingness.

Let us imagine, your eyes are covered by your hand, so you can indulge in a daydream about a better tomorrow without being disturbed. Though it feels great to be in your own fantasy, it also feels disturbing to be shut out from the world right in front of you.

Then you slowly start sensing, it is your own hand that hides where you actually are, and without really knowing why you suddenly take it away.

In other words, it is the built-up pressure and a change of purpose from daydreaming to being present, which makes you see it is your own hand, that hides where you are, so you automatically remove it.

As soon as you have had enough of the frustrations coming from the belief in being someone definitive, a take-off to the empty breath is automatically ignited.

It happens much faster than reading this sentence. Yet it takes a few more seconds to stop your conditioned way of breathing, which probably is based on forcing it through the tensions of the body caused by your suppression of feelings. That is not necessary for the empty breath, because it does not notice them.

Patiently waiting for this, the flow of the empty breath sets off from the abdomen, as if it is generated from an engine there and solely is inside the body, which you can read more about here, where after it continues without any regards to the apparent borders of the body like it is described here.

If not focused but defocused, all the elements used to construct what is believed to be to be you blur out. Hence they do not seem to block out, that the empty breath is no different from the nothingness of you. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Having had enough ignites a take-off to the empty breath
In some ways, the above process resembles the way a take-off to the empty breath is ignited. You have been hiding in your own story of a world defined by time and space.

The story is made up from thoughts and feelings, you have sought out and organised into a spiritual or mundane vocabulary, which is shared with like-minded ones, so you appear to be part of something meaningful with a plot so special, that the story seems to be hiding everything in it as well as the storyteller is made up from nothing, because thoughts and feelings are not real but an illusion fabricated by the brain from out of empty space. Read more about this here.

Though thoughts are just frequencies of empty space and therefore basically all alike, they are identified to differ from each other and as they are created by you, despite what is believed to be you is nothing but a construction of thoughts, that based on the thoughts, judged to differ from each other, is considered to be a unique and self-aware being capable of feeling love and whatnot. Read more about this here.

The exact moment you have had enough from the frustration coming from your story not delivering what the plot implied should be your fate, the selected thoughts and feelings making up the story do not seem to be able to establish the apparent differences in the story to make a difference, wherefore its nothingness is exposed. Not in the sense that you see nothing, but that what you see means nothing.

In other words, when you are fed up with your story of a world defined by time and space and do not try to deny, improve or transcend it, your frustration ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

You may not only sense the bare feet making the foot prints in this photo but also the body they belong to. Yet there is no body in the image, neither does anybody make foot prints like these. Thus what you sense is a construction of thoughts.* The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath does know what you believe to be, because it is a fantasy made from empty space. Thus it is only you and those you imagine being in this fantasy world, that deem you to be someone substantial in a tangible world.

This does not mean, that what you believe to be is transformed by the empty breath into something better or it is lifting you to somewhere higher. But that it takes away what you believe to be, so there is no consciousness to seek out thoughts and feelings, wherefore there is nothing but the bliss of nothingness, which can be experienced in the ways described here. It may also lead to glimpses of enlightenment, that is either seen, heard, felt or tasted as described here.

The empty breath cannot be experienced as something definitive, as it is empty space unprocessed by the brain. As a result of this it is noticed, if you want to experience something specific.

Since you are in a state of not-knowing, there is no awareness of its bliss, before memories of it pop up when you return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive, which must be done latest 20 minutes, 45 at most, after entering a state of not-knowing, if you want to remain as someone in a world defined by time and space. Read more about that here.

Be warned though, that when returning from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone definitive, you may not be recognised in the way you expect, wherefore you comment very bitterly on those, you blame for the lack of recognition, or maybe scapegoats from your past or famous people believed to be fake.

No worries. First of all, most likely it is not others but you, who have a hard time recognising that you are someone definitive, because a state of not-knowing rubs of on the certainty of that.

Secondly, grievances can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, provided they are not suppressed by justifying them with the world but acknowledged as yours. Here you can read more about how the acknowledgement of feelings unveils their nothingness of bliss.

Yet, whatever has been suppressed can also be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. That is if you totally acknowledge the suppression. In other words, to entirely be what you feel in this moment ignites a take-off to the empty breath, regardless if you know what you feel and why.

When you are totally fed up with being controlled by the thoughts and feelings, you have sought out to form a belief system of how to be, the system is automatically left. Not in the sense that you give up, let be or surrender, but in the sense that without the system you are not definable as someone definitive. You nobody and therefore without a need to follow or give up any system. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Igniting a take-off to the empty breath is not a matter of what and where you appear to be, nor whether you deny or indulge in sex or anything else. All that matters is that you are so fed up from obeying the specific thoughts and feelings, you have compiled into a special belief system of what is good and bad, so you reject being a slave of this belief system.

»When you dig into molecules, and the states of ion channels, enzymes, transcription programs, cells, synapses, and whole networks of neurons, you come to realise that there is no one place in the brain where memories are stored,« says Kukushkin. This is because of a property called plasticity, the feature of neurons that memorize. The memory is the system itself. From an article in Wired.

This belief system is the ego, which is made when you as the self created by the brain change it into something believed to be better by selecting special thoughts and feelings that you assume will make you spiritual, live in the now, come from the heart and whatnot. Contrary to the self created by the brain the self-made ego does not know what is in your own best interest, so you are always faced by trouble when following your own way instead of the brain, as it is there to support the self, it has created with happiness.**

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

As justifying a feeling entraps it in the body and therefore suppresses its energy, it cannot be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. To set it free you do not have to know what it is you have suppressed and why.

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

Here you can read more about totally being what you feel, so that whatever you feel its transparent bliss of nothingness is unveiled.

To sum it up, being really fed up with the tyranny of the ego, which is self-imposed since there is suddenly nobody to follow its instructions of how everything is experienced in the right way. So though the experiences of right and wrong are the same, there is not someone perceiving them to make a difference.

Consciousness is a fabrication of the brain done with the purpose of keeping you occupied with the awareness of something, so that the nothingness of your existence is not exposed.

This does not mean, you have an experience of being at one, as only someone who believes to be a separated can have an experience of something. It is rather like having a dream in which there is no difference between the experiencer and the experienced. Yet there is no one knowing this because you are in a state of not-knowing. See also Every moment is the perfect moment – also for dying in the rainforest.

The uncontrolled speed of any disturbing or intensely pleasant event will ignite a take-off to the bliss, that comes from being in the of indifference of the empty breath. So if you are confused about how to connect with it, do not try to clear up the turmoil but be so confused, that there is nothing else than that and therefore not something to define you, wherefore the speed of nothingness ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness, that the empty breath entails.

Not interfering with the speed of thoughts and feelings, they are set free to further speed up and ignite a take-off to the empty breath, that syncs the worlds of the outer and inner senses, wherefore everything definable, like stress, for example, is absorbed by the high-frequency world of the inner senses. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

Uncontrolled chaos ignites a take-off to the empty breath
If you have not had enough from being a victim of your selected thoughts and feelings structured into a system of right and wrong, that you just ignore this apparent difference, the thoughts and feelings entrapped by the belief system will try to escape it.

Should you succeed in making an order in this mess by making up a new system believed to be more spiritual, thoughts and feelings may be kept in line when awake, but when at sleep and outside of your control they will not leave you at rest.

But if you do not try to stop thoughts and feelings, when they try to escape your control, they are free to further speed up and ignite a take-off to the empty breath, that in less than a split second syncs the apparent stress and chaos in the world of the outer senses with the world of the inner senses in which everything moves so fast and unorganised, that nothing is definable.***

As feeling upset is unveiled to be nothing but a cover-up for the transparency of bliss, you no longer need to avoid certain people or situations in order not to be bothered by them. Neither do you have a need to please those persons, who seem to cause happiness. In fact, you do not need anything from the world, except what the body needs to survive.

Check out The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness and It takes much speed to be at rest, if you want to read more about this, and check What and where are the inner and outer senses in the case this is what you want to dig into.

This has nothing do with psychotherapy, as it is about rebuilding yourself by and not blaming somebody else for your feelings but embracing them, as this enhances the belief in being someone definitive instead of undoing it. Besides, blaming something or somebody for what you feel is one of the fastest ways to get fed up with your own belief system and thus bypassing it. Read more about that here.

If you do not share your frustrations or joy with anybody but are being it all by yourself, you are not acknowledging a world where there seems to be more than one, wherefore it cancels itself out as if it is something and thus exposed nothing, which is pure bliss

This does not mean that you should let your feelings out or in any way share them, neither via an inner dialogue with what you consider to be yourself and others, nor should you keep them inside, but totally be them until the pressure of being alone is so unbearable, that you automatically leave the belief system causing you to appear as if you are separated from others, wherefore you are not somebody but nobody and thus in the transparent bliss of nothing.

When you are nobody, there is not somebody to be bothered about anything. Consequently only those who want to be somebody have a need for meditation or other techniques to stop or control the thoughts that disturbs what they believe to be.

In the connectedness with the empty breath, you are indifferent to differences, and thus also to being someone definitive. That is why there is not somebody with a need to seek out thoughts to be defined as someone definitive by them. Hence there are no thoughts that need to be stopped or controlled via meditation or any other technique. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The connectedness with the empty breath is neither about meditating, chanting or applying other techniques of self-control, because the on and off connectedness with it makes you indifferent to differences and thus to the apparent difference between you and others, wherefore there is no self to define and thus nobody to care about stopping or controlling thoughts.

Judgements about somebody being wrong justifies feeling angry. And judging somebody to be special justifies feeling joy. It also makes it look, as if it is the world that defines you to be someone definitive. The same applies, if you share specific thoughts and/or feelings with others in a dialogue that appears to be inside or outside yourself. Read more about this here.

Fortunately you do not have to stop this in order to undo the belief in being someone definitive, because if justifications are acknowledged, the energy that they have suppressed is set free, wherefore a take-off to the empty breath is ignited. Read more about this in the hack No justification = No victimization in Extra Duality Hacks).

Completely being what you feel ignites a take-off to the empty breath
A take-off to the empty breath is also ignited, when what you feel in this very moment is not suppressed by justifying it with the world but instead totally acknowledged via the completely being what you feel and nothing else, as that means there is not something to contrast what you are, and therefore nothing to define it, wherefore ´you´ are in a state of not-knowing.

That being said, blaming somebody else for what you feel can be a great way of seeing, what you have excluded from yourself (read more about that here), so you can include it by completely being it, which leaves nothing to contrast it and therefore not something to define you, wherefore a take-off to the empty breath is ignited. In other words, it is not required that you restrain yourself, and if you do, being that restriction completely annuls it and thus ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

When the fear of the unknown is fully acknowledged by totally being it, what seemed to be something, that had the power to frighten you, is unveiled as nothing. Thus what is unveiled is neither hell or heaven but the transparency of bliss.

The avoidance of a feeling makes it appear to be something that is dangerous, whereas the acknowledgement of it unveils it is nothing and that the absence of something is blissful. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Be aware, that fully acknowledging feelings can at first be felt like a trip to hell, because once you start opening up for suppressed feelings, everything that you ever have avoided to feel starts popping up. And until those feelings are fully acknowledged one by one or all at once by acknowledging their common denominator, namely fear of the hell, it may feel as if having panic attacks or endless despair and depression.

All those who like to talk about emotions are not into feeling them but to control them, because if something is totally felt, it is unveiled as nothing, wherefore there is nothing to talk about.

As it most likely is too fearful to acknowledge hell at once by being nothing but that it is probably a process over time, where the on and off the connection with the empty breath slowly but surely makes you indifferent to the apparently different of feelings you are experiencing, wherefore no specific feeling can bother you anymore. See more about this in It is easy to feel ´the empty breath´ when not looking for something and The bliss of nothing.

In The acknowledgment of a feeling unveils its nothingness of bliss you can read more about this, and in The ins and outs of ´the empty breath´ there is more about how to totally be a specific feeling, so that it becomes indefinable and therefore is unveiled as nothing but transparent bliss.

That applies to the fear of death as well. Just like everything else experienced as something, it is the bliss of nothing. This does not mean that death is the ultimate solution – especially not if performed by yourself, as that enhances the belief in being someone definitive. There is no solution in a world where there seems to be more than one but to have the nothingness of it unveiled. This includes whatever is deemed to be spiritual.

As any construction of thoughts can be used to ignite a take-off to the empty breath, and as a world where there seems to be more than one is nothing but a construct of thoughts, there is nothing in it that cannot be used be used for that.

The way Picasso learned to paint was by replicating traditional art, which he did until he was so good at it that he could forget the techniques and go with the flow of the brush. But there is nobody to replicate in regards to connecting with the empty breath because its flow is that of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Not knowing anything ignites a take-off to the empty breath
We usually learn something new by replicating somebody else. That is how we learned to talk and walk. Connecting with the empty breath, however, is not about learning but unlearning, so the purpose of this and the other articles in hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing is not to learn something but to unlearn everything you believe to know – including your ideas about spirituality.

The ocean is what it is, despite what it seems. So is that which I am.

This also applies to reading about Alexius experiences of the empty breath in the article What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?. They are not meant to be replicated but to give you an idea of what it is to be an empty vessel for the empty breath.

The reason Alexius so often is as an empty vessel for the empty breath is that he really does not know what and where he is. Neither do you or anybody else know what and where you are. You are most likely working very hard to convince everyone that you are not nobody but somebody.

Trouble always follows in the footsteps of being somebody, whereas it is nothing but bliss that comes in the wake of being nobody.

If you stop doing that, there is nothing to obstruct the empty breath from being activated as an automatic gear change between the inner and outer senses, so that glimpses of enlightenment in the world of the inner senses become the basis for how you perceive the world of the outer senses, namely as a fantasy made by nobody from out of nothing.***

To appear as if he is someone substantial in a tangible world, Alexius got to adjust to its apparent reality wearing sunglasses and whatnot. Yet he knows, that just like adjusting to the reality of a game like Chess, it is not real, so whatever he seems to accomplish, nothing is achieved. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

That being said, as long as we appear to be somebody in a fantasy world that appears to be substantial, we cannot be nobody all the time. Alexius, for example, must adjust to the fantasy as if he is someone substantial so that the experiences fabricated by his brain can be used to formulate the non-teachings in the collectively agreed way of how communication is done in English. But to write them, he must be nobody, because their language is that of nothing.

Read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings until you are so empty, that a take-off to the empty breath automatically is ignited – or you are so tired of reading, that you forget to control yourself, wherefore uncontrolled energy spontaneously ignites a take-off to the empty breath.

This is why you automatically are connected with the empty breath when you do not know what and where you are, so go on reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings until forgetting it is a spontaneous process of not going for something but nothing and thus automatically entering a state of not-knowing.

Exclusiveness results in you appearing to be someone definitive, but since that feels restricting, there is always a desire for more. Inclusiveness on the other hand results in nothing and thus no hope for more. Hence inclusiveness ignites a take-off to the empty breath and its bliss of nothingness. In other words, fragmenting this animation into what you like and do not like will further define you as someone definitive and therefore enhance the feeling of something is missing, whereas the complete inclusion of it is your ticket to the bliss of nothingness.

Implementing other hacks to ignite a take-off to the empty breath
Not being exclusive and therefore being inclusive ignites a take-off to the empty breath (see 
hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment, and hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss)

The same applies to see symbols of non-duality in a world of duality (see hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life) and pretending to be someone (see hack #14 Pretending to be someone definitive).

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings does not give you anything, because that which is you are no different from that which is one, and as it is formless and therefore endless, there is nothing else to have than the formlessness of oneness. Hence you are mistaken if you believe to be and have more than that which is one. No worries. The duality hacks in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings correct this mistake by erasing every memory of what you believe to have. The animation is grabbed from the web.

The Duality Hacks and that which is you
There is no reason to laboriously learn all the hacks in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings for undoing the belief in being someone definitive. None of them is a goal in themselves – neither do they lead to the goal, because you are already there.

That which is you is no different from that which is one, and as it is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is you.

Hence the purpose of applying one or more of the duality hacks is not to return to that which is one, but exposing what seems to hide it, namely the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

And as the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one do not appear to make a difference, when connected with the empty breath, the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one is slowly but surely falling apart the more you are connected with it.

NOTES: 

3.4 Totally being what you feel unveils the nothingness of bliss (in the process of being updated)

If you feel like an outsider, you do not solve it by blaming others for taking your space, but by completely being that and nothing else, as then there is no insider to contrast it and therefore no outsider since one cannot be without the other. Thus there is just the uncontrolled energy of going with the flow, which automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath and its bliss of indifference to any contrast defining you or somebody else to be something specific. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Feeling wrong seems to go away when you complain about somebody because that makes you appear right and others wrong. But escaping what you do not like to feel by complaining about others is like hiding the feeling in a pot with a tight lid. Sooner or later the pressure from the suppressed feeling will blow off the cover and come out in a steam of grievances.

Since the pot in this metaphor is your body, the above is a way of saying, that although complaining about somebody at first seems to make you feel better, the problem has not been solved. Your resentment has just been buried inside your body from where it will leak when the body expels the suppressed feeling through physical diseases you will love to complain about.

Totally being a feeling is as easy as being completely devoted to sex, for example.

The way to get rid of feeling upset is not to suppress it but to be it. And this is not done by telling friends or a psychiatrist about it, as doing so alienate you from feeling it.

So do not share it with anybody. Instead, feel upset all by yourself until you are nothing but that, so there is no calmness to contrast it and therefore not something to define you to be upset or anything else. Consequently, you are in a state of not-knowing.

Read more about the cancellation of contrasts and therefore you as someone definitive in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure blissSee The ins and outs of ´the empty breath´ about completely being a specific feeling, so that it becomes indefinable and thus leave you in a state of not-knowing.

The denial of feelings results in a spaced out state of mind with speculative ideas of a better world or metaphysical matters. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This does not necessarily mean, that the symptoms of being upset are gone. Your body may still hurt, for example. But as there is nobody to perceive it as something, it is like experiencing somebody in a movie being hurt.

And as nothing in a movie real, the thoughts and feelings popping up about it make no difference, and there any need to sync the experience of it with concepts of right and wrong for you to feel good because there is nobody to know what and where you are. That is if you remain in the bliss of nothingness and do not return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive.

Regardless you are in a state of not-knowing or in the conscious experience of being someone definitive, the body must be attended to as if it is something, maybe with the help of a qualified healthcare professional. Being in a state of not-knowing, however, the thoughts and feelings regarding apparent problems in the body are not scaring so they do not become psychosomatic but remain to be physical problems. See the hack No Body-mind Connection in Extra Duality Hacks.

To sum it up, it is the acknowledgement of a feeling as something specific that you experience as someone definitive, which makes it possible for you to completely be this feeling and nothing else, so there is not something left to contrast what you are being, wherefore you are indefinable and thus in a state of not-knowing. Hence there is nobody to know, the feeling has vanished, nor to seek out other feelings to confirm you as someone definitive.

The brain, however, falls into a coma after 20 minutes, 45 at most,* without your conscious participation in its rendering of a world defined by time and space. So if you do not want to disappear in the nothingness from where the conscious experience of this is conceived, you must return to the consciousness of being someone definitive by resuming your grievances of others, so the contrast of you and them and thus you as someone definitive is reestablished. Read here how grievances seem to make you appear to be real.

In the indifference of the empty breath contrasts are slowly but surely cancelled out, including the contrast of life and death. When they all contrast are cancelled out, there is not someone definitive to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

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

But instead of returning from a state of not-knowing to a the conscious the experience of being someone definitive, you can go with the flow of nothingness into the enlightenment of that which is one, where there is no consciousness, states of bliss or anything else that requires more than one. Hence there is not something that seems to hide, there never was or will be more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.**

You are in a state of not-knowing, when you do not know what and where you are, neither your beloved ones. Yet it is your devotion to what you and them is believed, that exposes the nothingness of this belief.

If you leave a state of not-knowing by resuming your grievances, you can always return to a state of not-knowing by using the restless energy of your grievances to ignite another take-off to the empty breath. See Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´.

But if go on from a state of not-knowing to the enlightenment of that which is one and do not stop if by perceiving any differences in it, you are do not appear to be different from that which is one is anymore. This not only means that the appearance of you as someone definitive is over but that you never existed as such, because it takes more than one to exist as someone and there is no more than that which is one.

No reason to worry about accidentally and abruptly vanish in the enlightenment of that which is one, because in most cases the fear of termination or the urge to seek knowledge will set in before that so that you automatically block out the enlightenment of that which is one and remain in the consciousness of being someone definitive.

Obviously, neither 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 there is still experienced, and it only takes one to undo what is not one since there is no more than that which is one.

To see that your hidden grievances are nothing appearing to be something is as simple like recognising the nothingness of this haze. You do not need to analyse or understand it but to go into it with open eyes. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX: WHERE IS A STATE OF NOT-KNOWING?
A state of not-knowing is nowhere in the sense that it arises from the nothingness from which the brain creates the conscious experience of someone definitive in a world defined by time and space. The brain is just as immaterial as what it seems to create, but it uses its creation to make it seem material. The created gladly attests to this, as otherwise, the world would not appear to be substantial. In the context of this creation, where nothing seems to be something, a state of not-knowing abstractly speaking appears to originate from the back of the head.

At least this is how it seems at first because many old grievances that you are unaware of seems to make a blockage in the rest of the brain.*** If they are acknowledged as friends of you, however, they will not appear to create pressure in your head but transparent bliss. Yet the whole brain will never be transparent in a state of not-knowing because some parts of it are needed to render you as someone in a world defined by time and space. See Where to find the bliss.

No need to stop complaining. On the contrary. Without them a world where there seems to be more than one would not appear to be there.

So keep on complaining, but do it with a smile in your eye – like you do when complaining about going to jail in a game like Monopoly, well knowing that it is not real, but what you need to do to appear as if you are better and, therefore, different from others, since that is what the game is about.

But you do not enter a state of not-knowing by stopping or getting rid of grievances, nor by understand them or forgiving those you resent for having caused them. It is the acknowledging of them as they are, that makes it possible for you to be them and nothing else so there is to contrast them, wherefore your being is undefinable and you, therefore, are in the bliss of not believing to be someone definitive.

As there is nobody to know this, it is not before returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive, a vague memory of the bliss it is to not be in this awareness pops up. Read more about how to approach grievances in the below articles:

You could also choose to approach grievances like described in these articles:

NOTE: This article is an evaluation of the previous one The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness. They are both parts of hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

3.3 The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness (in the process of being updated)

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

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

You could also say, the reason oneness cannot be experienced is that it is like a movie running so fast that there are no frames to be seen. Thus it is not due to quietness but speediness, it is that which is one.*

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

Those insisting in oneness being stillness are those who want take it slow, because that makes them able to remain as if they are in control.

It is therefore not quietness but fastness, that is needed to accelerate the slowed down movie where there appears to be a world with more than one back to its natural speed of that which is one. But as this seems to create too much pressure on our biological system, which is part of the low-frequency world of the outer senses, we need the empty breath to sync it with the high-frequency world of the inner senses, so that it can absorb it.

This is not to say, that stress gets replaced by pleasure since that is just as disturbing for the biological system as any other sensation. All that is needs for the sensitivity of its nervous system to work is to be free from the excitement imagined by the mind.**

See The speed of uncontrolled thoughts and feelings ignites a take-off to the bliss of nothingness and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ ) about how uncontrolled speed of thoughts and/or feelings automatically ignites a take-off to the empty breath, that immediately makes sure the stress of it is absorbed by the inner senses.

Yet this synchronisation is only possible, if you do not work against it by organising thoughts and/or feelings into a philosophical or religious system, because that slows down the natural speed of thoughts and feelings, wherefore the energy of them becomes so dense that it emerges with the body.

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

That is until the thoughts and/or feelings suppressed in the body infect it with weird diseases, and the body, therefore, spits them out through, for example, vomiting, wherefore the turmoil of them return to your awareness in an even more speedy and chaotic way than before. See also Totally being what you feel unveils the nothingness of bliss and The YOU finger and the three ME fingers.

But if the synchronisation is not interrupted, the empty breath syncs the disturbing speed in the world of the outer senses with the world the inner senses, that increases the speed until it impossible for the brain to fabricate a conscious experience of you as someone definitive, wherefore there is nobody to judge the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one to make a difference, and thus no basis for believing to be someone definitive, which is pure bliss.

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, as it requires more than one to explain something and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Hence there is neither truth, love or anything else to be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, nor anywhere else. That is why Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not point to anything but that there is no more than that which is one.

In the connectedness with the empty breath, the apparent difference between specific thoughts is not perceived to make a difference, neither is the supposed difference between what is presumed to be you and others.

Thus there is nobody to be separated from somebody or at one with everybody – nor to experience the transparency of nothingness.

So although the image of you as somebody substantial as a hallucination and so is the apparently tangible world where you appear to be, it seems as if you are still there, which is quite hilarious, because that which is you is no different from that which is one so you cannot be anywhere, as it requires more than one to be somewhere.

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

If thoughts and feelings are not stopped or organised into something you believe to be usable, the uncontrolled chaos of them will automatically ignite a take-off to the empty breath, and therefore not noticed anymore (see Take-offs to ´the empty breath´, and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ ).

Yet for the take-off to work, you must first acknowledge the chaos of thoughts and feelings exactly as it is experienced, and in no way try to analyse or understand it, because doing so hides chaos behind an orderly system, wherefore it is displaced. This is also what happens if you choose to observe it or justify it with something or somebody.

So not to hide the chaos of thoughts and feelings behind a mental or meditative activity, but instead acknowledge it as it is, you do nothing but totally being that. And this is not only the take-off to the empty breath but also the destination because totally being something leaves nothing to contrast it, wherefore there is not something to define you, so you are in a state of not-knowing.* Read more about this here.

But since there is nobody in a state of not-knowing, there is not somebody to know the transparent bliss of nothingness, that comes from the indifference to the consciousness of being someone definitive, before you return to that consciousness and blissful memories of being indifferent to it start popping up.

Nevertheless, you know, that you are in a state of not-knowing when you do not care about what and where you appear to be.


*) No worries, if you already have suppressed the chaos in a belief system of what is right and wrong, you do not need to find it in order to acknowledge it and thus release it. You just acknowledge this by being nothing but your suppression. Read more about that here.


*) You can read more about a world where there seems to be more than one being a slowed down version of that which is one in You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference and The world is to be compared to a movie of that which is you played in slow motion. And in the appendix to What is unreal is right in front of you there is an illustration of that which is one versus a world where there seems to be more than one.

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

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

When you do not believe to be made of substantial elements – whether appearing to be subtle or solid – empty space takes over.* This can of course not be illustrated, so this yin-yang illustration is just simulating the swing of the empty breath coming out of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Since the bliss of nothingness, that sets in when connecting with the empty breath, is a state of not-knowing, it is not possible to connect with it when in the consciousness of being someone definitive. Thus the connection must be established before the brain based on signals, it claims to receive from the sensory system, renders a world defined by time and space, as if it is you who have a conscious experience of it, therefore, are someone in it.

Science states, the world we seem to feel and see consist of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest – despite it also is empty space and just like a dream has nothing substantial in it – is what we perceive to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space.

Thus appearing to be someone definitive is make-believe, no matter what and where you appear to be.

Read more about empty space in the articles ´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be and Free to float in the void of ´the empty breath´.

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

Believing to coming from the heart is a way to bypass the brain, so that you appear to be more special and/or spiritual than the basic self it preserves. But it is just like painting your hair. It still comes from the head.

This has nothing to do with coming from the heart, which is just something you imagine to make you feel more special and to feel closer to your pure your essence instead of being somebody insignificant. But you have no pure essence. You are nothing. Thus being insignificant is closer to that which is you, because when you are nothing, something does not appear to hide, there are no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless

How to connect with the bliss of the empty breath

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

As the empty breath sees no separation, it has no need to connect with you, no matter what and where you believe to be. You, on the other hand, need to connect with it, if you want to be indifferent to the belief in the brains conversion of empty space into a world where you seem to be someone separated from everything else by time and space. See also You exist nowhere else than in your own dreamscape.

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

Having connected with the empty breath in the second that has not yet been processed by the brain and hereafter not picking up on the brains deceptive fabrication of you as someone living in a capsule of time and space, the second unprocessed by the brain is extended into a state of not-knowing.

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

So being in a state of not-knowing for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, is the end of being there or anywhere else, because the signals that appear to come from empty space are no longer registered by the brain, wherefore there is neither nothing or something that seems to cover up, there never was or will be anything else than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore has no beginning or end.

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

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

How not to be deceived by the brains fabrication of you as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space but instead drift in the bliss of not-knowing is a question that cannot be answered, since it is founded on the belief that you are someone definitive, and the bliss of not-knowing comes from the indifference to that belief.

Neither can it be known, if it is the empty breath or not believing to be someone definitive that comes first in regards to be in the transparency of not-knowing. The only reason somebody wants to know this – or anything else in regards to a state of not-knowing – is that they believe to be defined by what they know, and they rather remain as somebody definitive than nobody in the bliss of not-knowing.

Thus the above about where to find the transparent bliss, that the empty breath entails, is not an attempt to answer the question but to rule it out. The same applies to the below, which is a further exploration of the above.

what you see is a translation produced by the brain


It takes time for the brain to correct the signals, it receives from the eyes about a flower, for example, so that it does not appear to be upside down but a coherent right-side-up image in the way you expect to see a flower. In other words, what you experience to see now is an edit version of the past. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It takes time for the brain to adopt the signals it seems to receive from your eyes, so they appear to be something substantial in the tangible world, we collectively have agreed to see outside of us. All the signals, for example, must to be flipped in order to produce an image of a world that does not appear to be upside down. Read more about that here.

This is not a skill, we are born with. The brain in a baby does not know how to do that. But in order to integrate the baby in the belief system of the world, the brain must quickly learn how to turn the incoming signals into a coherent right-side-up image, so it seems the baby is having the same experience of the world as everybody else.

See also the article The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real.

now is an illusion fabricated by the brain

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

Where to enter the transparent bliss of the empty breath?
Even though it only takes the brain a few milliseconds to register the signals, it receives from the eyes in this very moment, what you are conscious about right now is something else, because the brain needs a second more to process a conscious experience of those signals, so that you believe they are what you experience to see now.

The brain extrapolate the second it uses to process the signals, it claims to receive from the senses, into an experience that seems to confirm, you are someone definitive experiencing them now not one second ago.

In other words, since your conscious experience of now is a delayed interpretation of the signals the eyes received one second ago, what you believe to read now was read in the past.

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

now is a delayed interpretation of the past

The data, that your experience of this image is based on, the brain received from your eyes at least one second ago. In other words, your experience of now is a delayed interpretation of the past fabricated by the brain in order to fool you into believing, that you are someone definitive having your own life. Yet you have nothing of on your own because what you believe to be is a product of the brain made from out of nothing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As this means you are never conscious of the present but the past, and as the empty breath is only in the present, the way to connect with it is to not be conscious but return to the second of no consciousness (see how in the articles Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ ), where the signals from the sensory organs have not been processed by the brain into a conscious experience of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Since there is nobody in this second unprocessed by the brain, there is not somebody to believe, that the apparently different signals received via the sensory system are making a difference. Thus the brains interpretation of them, as if they are a reflection of different substantial elements making up a world where there seems to be more than one is exposed to be a fiction, that hides they are a reflection of nothing and not of something, wherefore there is no differences that appear to separate you from the empty breath.

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

what you believe to be is the brain

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

How long time does connectedness with the empty breath lasts?
It is just five per cent of the brain, that is used to shape the conscious experience of ourselves as somebody defined by time and space. Much more space though is needed to establish this experience as real. Thus a big part of the brain is constantly occupied with thoughts about ourselves as if they are caused by a tangible world experienced to revolve around us and therefore seem to confirm, that we are somebody definitive. See also INTRO TO HACK #4.4, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone and Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´.

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

It seems, that when the brain is not kept busy with thoughts, we appear to think ourselves about ourselves (see No talking is needed to come back to that which is one and The ins and outs of the inner senses) for 20 minutes, 45 at the most, it falls apart – and since all our selected memories are stored there and the sum of them is what we believe to be, this belief falls apart as well.

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

Thus a state of not-knowing cannot last too long at a time. That is not a problem though, because mostly it lasts no longer than the moment it takes for the uncontrolled speed of thoughts and emotions to ignite it (see Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ ).

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

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

Even in a state of not-knowing the urge to be someone special may be so deep-rooted, that it paves the way for the brain – perhaps just for a split second – to break through with its version of you as someone, who can be and have something special, if agreeing to identify selected sensory signals to be better than others, for example those that seem to manifest you in a special relation with a spouse, children of yours, pets or bodily wellness.

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

If not trying to escape this feeling of claustrophobia but including it as it is, it is not definable as something and thus nothing but that from where bliss of nothingness is coming.

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

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

When you succeed in having sex with somebody, the brain rewards you by releasing dopamine, which is the same it releases if you take drugs. And if the relation goes on it is not about love but to follow the demands of the brain, so it will release a new shot of dopamine.

Like everything else this has an end. But if you start showing more empathy in your relation, the brain is gonna reward you with shots of oxytocin – also called ´the hugging hormone´ – that instantly creates a feeling of happiness. And if you go along with the instructions of the brain, you will soon have a baby to cuddle.

Thus a state of not-knowing is left behind by imagining to be so special, that someone else, who also is special, is impressed and wants to be in a special relationship with you, so what you seem to have together can replace the feeling of loneliness, that arises from judging someone or something to be special.

That is, until you are so weary from living up to the expectations of being someone special, that you prefer to use your frustration as a take-off to the empty breath (see how in the articles Take-offs to ´the empty breath´ and How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ ), and float in the bliss of nothingness, that arises from being indifferent to the desire of being and having something special.

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


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

If you try to exclude the desire for something special in order to remain in a state of not-knowing, you are already out of it, because being in a state of not-knowing is all-inclusive, contrary to being someone definitive, that is exclusive. So if not excluding but including your desire, you are still nobody in the bliss of not-knowing, and thus in its guidance of everything included.

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

Even though Alexius mostly was in a state of not-knowing, when he for two days was stuck in the rainforest without food and water, it was the inclusion of his fear, that made it possible for the empty breath to use it in guiding him to a helicopter, that wired him up from there. See the article Every moment is the perfect moment – also for dying in the rainforest.

The bliss of the empty breath has no centre

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

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

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

It makes no difference to the empty breath though what direction you follow or how much you are connected with it. Your willingness to connect is all that it wants (see the paragraph The only requirement is a willingness in INTRO TO HACK #5-7, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone). And if it is there, it automatically syncs the inner and outer senses, so the sense of stability in the inner ones helps you to get through the sense of instability in the outer ones (see What and where are the inner and outer senses).

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

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

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

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

More ways to a state of not-knowing
Inclusiveness also results in a state of not-knowing (see hack #3.3 Inclusiveness is pure bliss), and so does pretending to be someone instead of believing to be that (see hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive), or having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #5-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can), or perceiving everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one (see hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life), or acknowledging that the experience of such a world is something you are having alone together (see hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one).

All other duality hacks (see More Duality Hacks and Extra Duality Hacks) except the enlightenment of that which is one also result in a state of not-knowing. If they differ from each other is not to say, as the brain does not fabricate a conscious experience of them.

How many triangles are there in this image?
As the brain automatically fill in the missing pieces in this image to make you believe, that you see two triangles, you will probably disagree with the grey triangle being an illusion and the one partly framed by a black stroke being disconnected.

But if you cover the three incomplete black circles, the grey triangle disappears and the other one is fragmentary.

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

Hence there is nothing to heal but the sick belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, which is done by connecting with the empty breath in the second before the brain fabricate a conscious experience of us, as if we are somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This does not mean, that the empty breath is the formlessness of that which is one, as it takes more than one to be anything, but that it metaphorically speaking is the door to that which is one, where there is no being, awareness or anything else that requires more than one.

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

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

You are literally blind at least two hours a day
You are probably not aware, that every now and then throughout the day you are literally blind, because the brain screens out what you see, so you do not get seasick from the eyes are moving around. The reason you do not notice being blind two hours a day is that the brain hides it by filling the gaps with visual impressions of what it predicts to happen.

Not you but the brain is in charge
In the first episodes of a new TV show there are hints pointing to the forthcoming ones, and as the brain thrives from envisaging what is going to happen next, it is trapped into anticipating the future of the characters and thus enchanted by its own predictions into a state of amusement.

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

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

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

But as the predictions fabricated by the brain to fill the gaps of blindness basically are a remix of memories, that have been adjusted every time recalled in order to boost the story of you as the good one fighting the bad ones, it may not match the story others have of the same moments.

In case the brain does not receive enough data from the eyes to produce the image you expect to see, it draws on your past experiences to fabricate what it predicts that you want to see.

Consequently, you conclude, something is wrong in your story or in that of others, wherefore you start trying to correct what is judged to be wrong.

Most likely you do not read this article, but what your brain predicts you want to read.

There is nobody in the bliss of the empty breath

There is nobody to find in the story of your life as someone definitive because it is pure fiction. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

Just like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, a dream does not have an author or anything in it, neither the dreamer, nor it is in the dreamer or anywhere else. It is a deception made to look as if nothing is something.

The world is not something we see but a construction of thoughts arranged by the brain in accordance with its translation of the signals it seems to receive from the eyes. The same applies to what we believe to hear, feel, smell and taste. More about this in the article All experiences are equally unreal.

Fortunately the brain is not capable of translating the empty breath, so when connected with that and thus in its indifference, we are not deceived by the construction of thoughts produced by the brain to make us believe we are somebody limited by time and space.

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

In a state of not-knowing it is not possible for the brain to establish the usual consciousness of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. This does not mean, however, that the consciousness of you as someone definitive is replaced by something better or higher but by no consciousness at all. Thus there is nobody to be conscious about the bliss that comes from not believing to be someone. That is why it is like air walking in air. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

There is no awareness of differences in a state of not-knowing
In a state of not-knowing you are blind in the sense, that there is no conscious experience of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Thankfully this is resolved by the empty breath and not the brain, which records the signals it assumes to receive from senses like it always does, but as the connectedness with the empty breath fences off the fabrication of a conscious experience of them, there is no awareness of how the brain categorise the different signals in contrasts of for example good or bad, right or wrong, love or hate, within and without and so on.

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

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

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

The bliss of the empty breath is the bliss of nothing


The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

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

Yet being nobody, there is not somebody to be clumsy or something else. There is just emptiness, and that is pure bliss.

The bliss of the empty breath is not the end station

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

There is no more than that which is one
Be aware, that the connectedness with the empty breath is not similar to being connected with that which is one, since the latter is not possible, as it takes more than one to be connected with something.

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

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

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

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

But despite the connectedness with the indifference of the empty breath, therefore, undoes the belief in separation, it is also enhancing it, because it requires more than one to connect with something.

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

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

NOTES: 

 

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

Searching for the meaning of life is stressing, because it has no meaning

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

The way that letters are put together in various shapes makes it possible for us to attribute a special meaning to each of the constructions. And when they are organised in sentences like in this article, for example, the combination of different shapes is experienced to make up a story inside of us, so that although the meaning of those shapes have been attributed by ourselves, we feel the story, that seems to evolve from them, confirms us to be somebody in a world defined by time and space.

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

Let us imagine, that the letters we believe to confirm us as somebody definitive in a world defined by time and space are the same letters making up the formlessness of oneness. But unlike in the world, where we believe to be and where we experience everything as separated by time and space, there is no space to keep anything apart in the formlessness of oneness, since it has no space.

Although the story of you as someone definitive is made up by yourself, you have not made a story about a happy person but a destructive one, because you hate the restrictions of being limited and not formless.

Thus the letters, that the formlessness of oneness consists of in this fable about it, cannot be distinguished from each other, and therefore not organised in shapes, that added together in specific ways seem to establish a story of us as separated beings in a world defined by time and space.

In non-duality there is no differences

In non-duality, everything is fused into one perpetual present, that no one can see, as it takes more than one to see something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

So in the context of our story about time and space versus the formlessness of oneness you could say, that a world defined by time and space is a fantasy of what oneness looks like if slowed down. The slower you imagine it to be, the more there seems to be space between the shapeless letters, so they appear to be separated from each other with a definitive shape of their own.

Furthermore, there seems to be time to arrange them in different combinations with each their own meaning, that added together expand into a story of a world, where time and time and space seems to separate everybody from each other.

The slowing down of oneness is, therefore, an attempt to gain control of it and turn its formlessness into a construction of thoughts representing specific shapes in a world defined by time and space, that they seem to be something you can manipulate to your liking.

Thus the way back to oneness does not come from more control of thoughts or slowing them further down via for example meditation or stories about a quiet life on a peaceful planet, so you do not feel the speed of it, while it is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour without you falling off.

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

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

Non-duality has no meaning

To undo the belief in duality you must give up attributing meaning to anything, that seems to have a beginning and end so that the apparent differences of duality does not appear to make a difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A journey without distance takes no time
If you experience to be someone definitive, you are making up a story about a world defined by time and space from out of nothing, because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is not anything outside of it. It does not even have an outside, neither something inside of it, as it has no sides since it is formless.

No worries. When not attributing meaning to the letters in this article or anything else there seems to be in your story of a world defined by time and space, the story collapses, as when shapes have no meaning, there is nothing to separate them and therefore no time and space.

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

The fastest way to not attribute meaning to something, that appears to be there, is of course to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one,* as it promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you remember to have experienced, so that there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled, wherefore there is no story to be made.

If you, however, want to have your cake and eat it too, you can connect with the empty breath,** because it undoes the story of you in a world defined by time and space in a less abrupt way. Thus you are able to enjoy the excitement of the story while having it undone.

The reason for this is that the empty breath does not erase the memories of you as someone in a world defined by time and space. Yet due to its flow of indifference, the apparent difference between what you believe to be and not to be is not perceived to make a difference.

Consequently, there is nobody to confirm the story of you as someone substantial in a tangible world is realwhich is why it is so much fun pretending that it is*** – just like in the context of that story, it is much fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

Speed is stillness

Stress comes from trying to keep together a fabricated image of a world where there seems to be more than one, instead of not preventing it from falling apart, and thus expose that there never was or will be more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

NOTES about speed and stillness:
It takes a lot of effort to appear as someone definitive in the substantial world of the outer senses, contrary to being nobody in the abstract world of the inner senses, as it requires no effort but not making an effort to be someone definitive.

This does not mean you have to be inactive in a certain body posture in the world of the outer senses to be in the bliss of the inner senses. You can move around in nature or the city at any pace that suits you, as long as there is no effort to use what that makes you appear to be as a confirmation of you being someone definitive in the world of the outer senses.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If not using your taste in for example music to prove how special you are, you seem to be nobody and so there is not somebody to hide, that what you believe to be is no different from Santa Claus, namely a fantasy made from nothing. This is not to say, you should avoid participating in the game of Santa Claus. Actually, it is so much fun when you know it is make-believe.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When not controlled, speed is not stressing

The amount of digital info only seems overwhelming, if you try to fit it into what you believe to be. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media is stressing. But that only seems so, because they believe to be somebody definitive, and therefore need to have this confirmed by getting the right info. Thus they must exclude what is judged as wrong and sort the rest info in the categories, they have made to construct a definitive image of a world, where they are somebody special.

In other words, if you believe to be someone definitive, all info needs to be judged and sorted in boxes of good and bad, so it ends up in a story that points to you and like-minded ones as being the good ones and the others the bad ones. But as this story is based on countless judgments and speculative concepts regarding right and wrong, thoughts keep flying around, which is what stresses you and not the amount of incoming info.

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Speed is stillness, when not controlled

If you do not try to capture something specific from this animation, the apparent chaos of it will not confuse you. In fact, there is nobody to be confused, because without reaching out for something specific, you are in the bliss of indifference to the belief in being someone definitive. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing – for example vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming plus computer to smartphones to wearables – and the speed of info in cyberspace is a reminder, that the reality of that which is one has no size, as it is formless and therefore endless, and for the same reason its incredible speed does not make it move anywhere but everywhere.

Also for the same reason, it cannot be found in a world defined by time and space. Thus nothing in such a world can bring you back to it, but the undoing of the belief that you are there.

That is the purpose of the empty breath as well as all other duality hacks. It is not achieved though by revealing the formlessness of oneness, because it takes more than one to reveal something. Besides, it does not need to be revealed, since it is no different from that which is you.

What needs to be revealed is what is used to hide this, namely the sorting of thoughts and feelings into categories, that seem to confirm you as someone in a world defined by time and space. If thoughts and feelings are not organised, the chaotic and speedy energy of them will ignite a take-off to the empty breath.****

And as the empty breath is indifferent to appearances, the sizes that make up a world defined by time and space do not appear to make a difference, neither does fast and slow. Thus emptiness is all that is drawn from it, and so a world defined by time and space does not appear to hide formlessness of oneness anymore.

4.1 INTRO TO HACK #4.4, ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone (in the process of being updated)

Alexius Jorgensen in the bliss of not believing to be someone

If you want to dive into the bliss of the empty breath, it may be beneficial to read this intro about it. But if you prefer to jump right into it go to Take-offs to ´the empty breath´,.

When Alexius many years ago was hired to teach graphic design in an advertising school in Denmark he had a problem. Even though he had been designing magazines, websites, flyers and ads for companies big and small, he did not know how to do it, because everything was done as a servant, who intuitively does what is best for communicating the contents of the projects, he is hired to design a frame for.

He had no professional training in design, neither any other kind of education, so in order to provide students with guidelines of how to design, he wrote a book with basic rules of doing it, which he deducted from his intuitive way of designing.

There may not be anything else published about how to connect with the empty breath and drift in its bliss of indifference to the belief in being someone definitive.

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

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

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

Neither does he know how to explain, that the image of us as somebody separated from each other is an artificial construct, designed by the brain to control and manipulate us into believing, that we are unique creatures separated from each other in a capsule of time and space, although there is nothing else than oneness, since it is formless and therefore endless.

But he knows how to serve and follow guidance, and starting to write about the empty breath and its undoing of the belief, that it is possible to divide the formlessness of oneness into separated substantial beings, he was guided to watch a movie (You Disappear), which quoted the latest scientific explorations of the brain.

Consciousness is just a construction of thoughts, which is no more than ones and zero in a stream of binary code.

The fabrication of something from out of nothing
The short version of these discoveries is that the brain uses five per cent of its capacity to construct an image of you as someone definitive, who is aware of itself through the experience of being separated from a world outside of it, that is assumed to cause its thoughts and feelings.

Another small part of the brain continuously fabricate experiences of an external world, that you seem to have and therefore to confirm, you as someone definitive in it.

These experiences the brain claims to process from frequencies it receives via the senses, but this explanation, just like the experiences it processes, is a smokescreen to cover up, that it does not know real from unreal. It uses the same organ to deal with both imaginary and reality, so it has no way to differentiate between imagination and reality. In other words, its version of reality is also imagined.

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

The experiences interpreted as the most meaningful ones, namely those that seem to define you as important, are stored in the rest of the brain, and as the sum of these memories constitute what you believe to be, you are not just a fabrication of the brain, you are the brain. Every bit of it – not just ten per cent – works to make it appear as if you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space outside the formlessness of oneness.

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

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

But since formlessness is endless, there is nothing outside of it. Thus any experience – whether it seems to be of a physical or spiritual nature, being direct or coming from the heart – is constructed by the brain from out of empty space. And as it takes a second for the brain to generate an experience of something from out of nothing, what you believe to be experiencing now happened one second ago.

In fact, it never happened, because one second ago there was nothing, and it only seems as if you experience something now because you need to believe this in order to feel that you exist.

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

Since the experience, that the brain fabricate of a world defined by time and space to support the appearance of you as someone definitive, only makes sense, when you want to know or be aware of yourself as someone definitive, you connect with the empty breath by not being conscious and therefore remain in the continuous seconds of unprocessed empty space, where you are in a state of not-knowing*.

However, in order for somebody to be in this state, there still needs to be a little awareness of you as someone definitive, so the world made up by the brain continues to be experienced. But as there is not enough consciousness to establish you to be different from the experienced, the apparent difference between you and the world does not make a difference.

Hence there is no separation to hide, that although it is fun playing along with the fantasy of separation when you know it an illusion, it is nothing compared to the bliss of emptiness.

Yet it is not due to the revelations coming from the discoveries of how the brain is working that Alexius knows this, but because when he returns from a state of not-knowing* to the conscious experience of being someone in a world defined by time and space as it is fabricated by the brain from out of empty space, there are memories of the bliss it is to not to believe that this is real.

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

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

Not knowing something, nothing hides the bliss of nothing
He has no ingenious system for how he connects with the empty breath in the second of nothingness before the brain fabricates a conscious experience of him as someone definitive experiencing the empty space from one second ago as if it is a substantial world where something specific is happening now. And since the connection with the empty breath is a state of not-knowing*, he does not even know when he is connected.

Only those believing to be somebody definitive need to be in balance, peace and whatnot, because if not manifested as someone special, they are exposed as nothing.

But not always trying to know** and rather to serve life than to master it may be the reason, there are many moments with no need to support the image of him as someone definitive, so he automatically connects with the empty breath. But since he is not trying to know, he cannot say if this is so. Yet, as he is trying to serve, the article goes on.

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

Yet he can say, that this connectedness cannot last too long at a time, if he wants to go on with the experience of being someone definitive, because that experience needs to be regularly updated by the brain via thoughts and feelings appearing to be caused by a world outside of him, so that they seem to confirm him to be a separate being in that world.

The bliss of not believing to be someone is always there

The empty breath remains connected with you, regardless this is mutual or not because it does not know of separation. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The inner and outer senses
When we are not connected with the empty breath and therefore not in the blissful state of not-knowing* but in the stressful awareness of being somebody definitive separated from others in the world we seem to experience through the outer senses, the empty breath is still connected with us, provided that we just once connected with it ourselves, because it does not know of separation.

The world of the outer senses is a version of the unprocessed world of the inner senses, that the brain has processed from it. Actually a bit more nuanced, but that you can read about in the next article What and where are the inner and outer senses.

The experience of being in the tangible world of the outer senses or the abstract world of the inner senses is in the context of where the data seem to come from received from the same senses, as the world of the outer senses is an interpretation of the world of the inner senses fabricated by the brain.

Looking at the bliss of not believing to be someone

As all experiences are illusionary it includes the experience of the empty breath as well. But as this is what this illusion, it unveils the bliss of nothing, until not even bliss seems to hide, there is no more than that which is one, and therefore no bliss or anything else to experience, since it takes more than one to experience something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since the empty breath does not know of separation, it has no knowledge about the tangible world of the outer senses. Yet it senses you are stressed from believing to be someone definitive, so it synchs the feeling of stress with the abstract world of the inner senses, where there is nothing specific and therefore no stress.

This metaphor only makes only sense as long as you believe, that the experience of you as someone definitive in the world of the outer senses is real, because that experience as well as any other – including the connectedness with the empty breath or anything else considered to be spiritual – is a deception made from out of empty space.

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

But as the world of the outer senses is based on the experience that everything is separated by time and space, the empty breath has no knowledge of it. Yet it grasps, we are stressed from figuring out what to achieve, how to do it, and most of all how to live up to our own expectation of what getting what we want should make us feel.

Whether you are connected with the empty breath or not, it is always connected with you, so that it can function as an automatic gear change between the outer and inner senses, and make the abstractness in the world of the inner senses the base from where the world of the outer senses is perceived, wherefore the achievement of specific the physical elements does not seem important.

In the flow of not believing to be someone

Going with the flow of the empty breath you become indifferent to what you get, so if you want something specific, you got to accept the stress, that comes from not going with the flow it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

No concepts survive the bliss of not believing to be someone

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

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

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

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

Ways to connect with the empty breath
It seems, that while in the flow of writing about the empty breath, ways of explaining how to ignite a take-off to it popped up. For example by using the energy of the stress arising from the belief in being someone definitive as a take-off. Read more about how to do that in hack #4.3 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The bliss of not believing to be someone

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

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

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

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

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

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

Alexius Jorgensen in the bliss of not believing to be someone


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the article Nothing can stop you on Highway One except your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one you can read more about the fear of enlightenment and being rebooted from it.

On top of that, it may not even be the empty breath, that is uncovered through the willingness to not uphold the belief in being someone definitive. Maybe it is the enlightenment of that which is one or a glimpse of it (see the article A reintroduction to the inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it), or a perfect moment (see hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment), or the freedom that comes from pretending to be what you are not (see hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


*) One way to not be of the world is to pretend to be ´there´, because where you pretend to be, you are not. Read about this in hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

Failure may be the greatest success

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

It takes two to define a person in the world.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NOTES:

Leave the body

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


NOTES:

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

Nobody walks around enlightened in the world of appearances, as it is an illusion to appear as someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one, and enlightenment of that which is one is not an illusion. This image is of Alexius is shot by a little friend of his. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

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

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

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

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

INTRO TO HACK #5-7.2, The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

stock-illustration-95146555-enso-circular-brush-stroke-japanese-zen-circle-calligraphy-n-7-

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nothing that requires more than one is an attribute of oneness. In other words, love and whatnot only seem to be possible in a world where there seems to be more than one. Believing to be someone in such a world, however, they can be useful in regards to having the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one undone. That is if this is the purpose of using them. See hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation or hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life or hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment and hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss or hack #8.8 Alone together is the key to that which is one.

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOTES:

How to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one

To appear as someone definitive, you must exclude something. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Exclusion seems to result in something, whereas inclusion gives you nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Anger is just a lid over joy, so if you do not try to get rid of it, but feel it as it is, the result is joy. Even better, if you completely include anger, its contrast joy is automatically included as well. Inclusion though will neither result in anger or joy but cancel them out so that you do not appear to be someone definitive, which is the opening the enlightenment of that which is one is waiting for.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To completely include something is not to feel it, neither to embrace it, but to not understand it and just be it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When something is included, you do not know what has been included. Not because it was transformed into something better or higher, but because it is not possible to exclude something, so what you include is nothing. In other words, inclusion undoes the belief in being someone definitive.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To appear as someone special, you must exclude what you judge not to be special. If this appearance feels claustrophobic, all you need to undo it is to not exclude but include. The more you include, the less there is to define you as someone special. Consequently, there is nothing to lose, and therefore no reason to fear the enlightenment of that which is one.

You can read more about inclusion versus exclusion in hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment and hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

To forget what are where you are is to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The animation is grabbed from the web.

To forget what and where you are is to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The animation is grabbed from the web.

Praying, meditating, fasting, wearing special clothes or being with special people in special places does not help you in regards to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, as doing something implies that you are someone definitive. There is nothing to do and no help to get than forget what and where you are.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe, contrary to that which is one, as it takes more than one to believe something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A certain bodily posture, state of mind, kundalini awakening and whatnot is not needed in order to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one because it does not enter neither the mind or the body (including aura and chakras). On the contrary, it undoes the belief in anything that can be experienced – including primordial energy, consciousness, astral worlds and whatnot –so that only what cannot be experienced is left, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A world where there seems to be more than one only appears to be there, when believing to be someone definitive, because otherwise there does not appear to be someone thinking, and without thoughts there is nothing to see, as any kind of experience is a construction of thoughts – also love, stillness, consciousness and whatnot. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A world where there seems to be more than one is a simulated reality layered on top of the formlessness of that which is one, made by imagining it is possible to be and have more than that. See this article.

It is of course not possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one because what is formless is endless and therefore everything. In other words, there is no more than that which is one, so if you believe to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are either non-existing or hallucinating.

Fortunately, there are ways to undo this belief:

  • The more you pretend to be a someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, the less the imagination of you as someone definitive in such a world appears to be real. Seen hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.
  • The more you see everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one, the less the imagination of you as someone definitive in such appears to real. See the hack Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality.
  • The more differences do not make a difference, the less the imagination of you as someone definitive in such appears to be real. See the hacks Every moment is the perfect moment, Inclusiveness is a perfect moment and Inclusiveness is pure bliss. The indifference to the apparent differences of a world where there seems to be more than one comes automatically when connected with the empty breath, which you can read about in the hack ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

You can find the above hacks in the table of contents.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not focus, you cannot see the world and so it will not acknowledge you as someone definitive.The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you do not seek to be acknowledged as someone definitive, you are nobody – and only as nobody can you bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In reality, there is no more than that which is one and as it requires more than one for something to have contrast, there is nothing right or wrong, bad or good, true or false, inside or outside – neither is there anything outside of that which is one. But it is possible to think so. Yet thinking does not make it real, and so a world where there seems to be more than one does not contain neither truth, self, oneness or anything else than emptiness.

Maybe that is why the findings of science are that the universe is 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and just like a dream does not contain anything substantial, is what we perceive as elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space..

If you do not focus on being someone specific, there is nobody to see a definable world and so there is nothing to hide the enlightenment of that which is one.

To bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, all you need to do is to stop focusing on experiencing something tangible, because if you believe to see something definable, it is as if it is hiding the formless enlightenment of that which is one.

That which is one is neither light or darkness or anything in between. Light is just what is used to extract all the thoughts, that are used to make up the experience of being someone tangible, so there is not something to be sucked into a black hole and spit out on the other side into that which is one. Neither is there another side, as there is no more than that which is one.


NOTE: This article is the last one of hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

SH (ALONE) You may be enlightened without knowing it, because the enlightenment of that which is one changes nothing

Even though it appears as if you are in a body, it is all make-believe. The enlightenment of that which is one does not change anything within this belief system. It simply undoes it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As it is make-believe to appear as if you are in a body, the enlightenment of that which is one does not waste time on changing anything within the world of this belief. Instead, it undoes it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It is not uncommon to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one and afterwards dismiss the vague memories of it as nothing, as what is formless – and therefore not definable – cannot be remembered as something. So in that sense, it is certainly nothing. Besides, as the enlightenment of that which is one is one perpetual present, it cannot be transferred to a world of linear time. In other words, it cannot be shared in a world where there seems to be more than one, wherefore it is dismissed as not real.

That is why Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings just are pointers to it (see for example the article Last night I died from the world again). If you somehow are touched by these pointers based on his vague memories, you may also have vague memories of it, which is not – as most like to imagine – something that will change you into a spiritual and blissful being, who will last forever. On the contrary.

As there is no more than one in the enlightenment of that which is one, you will not last forever. Like a machine, you are simply turned off, and without a personality, self, soul or whatever you considered to be or have in a world where there seems to be more than one, ´you´ fall/float through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one.

If the biological system of the body, you seemed to inhabit before the enlightenment of that which is one is rebooted* in less than half an hour – in linear time – you again appear to be in it, but you are not greater or better than before, neither are you more spiritual, blissful, wise, loved or respected in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The enlightened does not have a high consciousness, as it takes more than one to have something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The unenlightened may have a high consciousness attained through many years of meditation. But one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has nothing, because it takes more than one to have something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When one who is compared to the enlightenment of that which is one forget that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, it seems that the unenlightened knows so much more about enlightenment than the enlightened, who knows nothing. But as soon as it is remembered, there is no more than that which is one, it dawns on the enlightened that all knowledge enhances separation, as it takes more than one to know something.

Literally, nothing has changed. The enlightenment of that which is one did not return you to the formlessness of that which is one. It is not possible, as that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as what is formless is endless, there is nothing outside of it, so you never left it – only in your imagination, which the enlightenment does not change but undoes.

There is not something to awaken from or return to – neither any awareness to expand – because there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

In other words, the enlightenment of that which is one does nothing but heals the sick belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Rebooted as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you sense this very clearly, because even though the memories of the enlightenment of that which is one are vague, one thing stands out crystal clear: There is no more than that which is one.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The unenlightened often tries to make someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one looking bad. The church, for example, has painted a picture of the devil, as if it has horns, because they grow out in the aura of an enlightened, and the church wants to make those, who do not need their salvation to look evil.

So if you are looking for something big and supernatural, that will support you and help you to become more spiritual and blissful, you will not notice if you somehow forget what and where you are and therefore bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, because it has none of those qualities you are looking for. It has nothing at all, as it requires more than one to have anything.

Last night I died from the world again

The transmission from outer to inner senses is not gradually but very abrupt and it can seem frightening in the moment you sense the world, as you know it, is gonna be erased. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The total transmission from the outer to the inner senses is not gradual but very abrupt, and it can seem frightening at the moment where you sense that nothing definable will make it through this transition. You and the world, as you know it, is gonna be eradicated just like that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Just like we have senses to see, hear, feel, smell and taste a world experienced to be outside of us, we have similar ones to sense an inner realm. To use the inner senses, or go beyond the senses we normally use, namely, the outer ones, they must be more or less turned off.

The more you do not focus on something specific in the world, that the outer senses seem to produce, the more they are closing down and the less you see a definable world. To be completely defocused for a moment feels like you die from the world of the outer senses, which may be why the New Testament says that St. Paul died daily.

A complete transition from the outer senses to the inner ones can be very uncomfortable. Some choose to die instead of going through this phase. But the most fight to remain as a person in the world experienced by the outer senses, as that is where they consider life to be.

Vomiting is a way to stop frightening things from coming up
Psychologically speaking it is said, that when suppressed feelings are about to surface, some unconsciously choose to vomit instead of facing them. It is a bit the same in the total transition from outer to inner senses, in the sense that part of you are afraid of the unknown and try avoiding it by doing something very physical like vomiting.

But it is best to avoid vomiting in the phase of the total transition from outer to inner senses, and instead face the extreme discomfort by including it precisely as it is without trying to understand or embrace, so you are what is in the moment and nothing else. Then it is over. It may be easier said than done, and it may take a long time to pass the apparent discomfort.

At a very young age when one of my inner senses opened, the outer ones were fully turned off, so there was nothing to block out the enlightenment of that which is one. I had been driving a taxi for 15 hours and was exhausted to the extent that I confused traffic lights for customers trying to hire a cab.

When I finally returned home from work, there was no energy left to fight the inner sense called the third eye to open up and burn away everything that appeared to be Alexius in a world where there seems to be more than one, so that there was no belief in something definable to hide there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

In deep sleep or big exhaustion, you do not sense apparent differences to make a difference, which is the invitation the enlightenment of that which is one is waiting for. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Deep, deep sleep
The inner senses are like the outer ones in the way, that if one of them is intensely used, the other ones seem to be somewhere in the background. In other words, one sense dominates at a time. For me, it was the most known of the inner senses, that dominated, when the inner senses opened up, namely the ability to ´see´ light. Not a light though that can be compared to anything you can see with the two eyes of the outer senses.

The Bhagavad Gita compares this light to light from thousands of suns, but I would not do that. To compare it to something is to say, there is something to see, that can be defined by time and space. It is not a light that illuminates something. There is nothing to see – not even light because there is no consciousness of being someone. There is just light and nothing else.

Soon after I bid welcome the visual aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one, the inner ear opened with ethereal harmonies sounding like bells but in a lot crisper and softer way than the mundane ones. Regarding the opening of the inner eye, I had no discomfort in the transition. Guess I was too exhausted to fight the opening of it. Speaking of the opening of the inner ear, I think it happened in what Buddha called the deep sleep.

If you sleep very, very deep, the concept of an ´I´, that experience something, is gone, and so there is nobody to fight the flow. It was in such a profound sleep that my inner ear opened up just like that.

The focus and concentration needed to read books enhances the belief in being and having something specific, contrary to defocusing that initiates the flow towards the formlessness of oneness.

The above is not much of an explanation of the deep sleep, but as I have not read the Buddhist statements, which are probably full of fancy names for levels and whatnot, all I know is from deep sleeping myself – or rather not doing it, as there is nobody there. That is why all I have are vague memories.

Always on the run from something to something better, so that you do not see, that which is you is the best. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The desire to escape that which is one is the reason, you must belief it is possible to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, so you appear to be and have more than another one. Escape is so deeply rooted in the belief system, that it governs everything you seem to do.

Even if you change your mind and want oneness instead of separation, you still think you need to escape the enlightenment of that which is one. That is until you realise, it is yourself that you want to escape, because that which is you is no different from that which is one.

Tasting the sweetness of that which is one
To taste the sweetness of that which is one, which is like a flavour of milk and honey with a hint of liquorice or sometimes strawberry was not without discomfort for me. My body acted like it had been attacked by something dangerous and panicked by making vomit reflexes. But when I did not try to escape it, the panic turned out to be a lid on a jug of a smoothie-like texture, that in some scriptures are called the nectar of life.

This is very much told in retrospect because as the enlightenment as that which is one cannot be experienced, this aspect of it is rather the tastelessness of nothingness. It was not after having had several glimpses of this aspect, which is an experience of a transparent sweet smoothie like flavour, that I realised I must have bid welcome this aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one, because I had a memory of this taste in its extreme and most pure form, namely the tasteless formlessness of that which is one.

When the biological system of the body does not function anymore, the world of the outer senses cannot be experienced. For almost half an hour, however, you remain in the world of the inner senses, and as it is only in the world of the outer senses the belief in being someone specific can be upheld, nobody is dying. That is if you do not fight the world of the inner senses by holding onto something specific, that reminds you of something in the world of the outer senses.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In that which is one you are not anything at all, not even the bubbling sense of oneness There is not someone to experience it, as that would require more than one. This does not mean, that you are gone, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one. What is gone is that which is not you, namely someone tangible who appears to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Last night I finally died from the outer sense of feeling a tangible world
The inner sense of feeling has not been easy for me to get in touch with. It took many years of discomfort, vomiting, being hospitalised and at times losing the ability to balance – just to mention a few of the unsettling things, I have encountered as a person in the world getting closer to this inner sense.*

But last night in a very deep sleep I got so close, that I completely died from the outer sense of feeling a world defined by past experiences. In other words, the belief in being Alexius was momentarily undone, so that the enlightenment of that which is one was bid welcome – not in a visual but emotional way though. First, there was discomfort from not feeling my body to be separated from the bed. It was as if everything was electric and full of tiny bubbles.

Next, it turned into one feeling of nothingness, in the sense that there was nothing tangible – neither Alexius. Calling it a feeling is not entirely correct, because there is nobody to feel it … and nobody to remember it. In other words, what I am writing is based on vague memories, that I seem to be able to pick up from what feels like very far away and yet right here.

I remember, it was not like in a world defined by time and space, where there seem to be different events happening in sequences of time. There was no time. Everything was happening simultaneously.

It was one perpetual present and still is. This, however, cannot be described in a world of linear time, so it seems as if it happened in the past. Yet there was and is no difference between that which I am and the non-tangible feeling of one eternal presence of nothing but sizeless bubbles. This should not be understood that I am in a state like that in a world where there seems to be more than one, but that I know I am not there, because there is no more than that which is one.

Until that night I only had glimpses of the emotional aspect of that which is one, which is to emotionally experience the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises. The feeling of this vibration can be compared to the feeling you have in the body when quickly drinking the bubbles from a Coca-Cola, or from sensing the purring of a cat. If you want to learn how to feel and hear this vibration check, the article Life has no secrets.

How to activate glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, 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.

If you see something in this pic, there´s duality.

If you see something in this image, you believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one and use what you define seeing to fence off the undefinable formlessness of that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Back in a world where there seems to be more than one
To leave the enlightenment of that which is one and reappear as a person in the world of the outer senses, all that is needed is to perceive something, as this is based on separation. I remember from years ago, when I came back from my first intense glimpse of the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises, there had been a wish to live as opposed to dying. Such a contrast – or any other for that matter – is only applicable in a world where there seems to be more than one, so again Alexius appeared to be there.

To experience the enlightenment of that which is one, there must be someone to experience it, but that is not possible, as it takes more than one to experience something. Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings therefore discerns between the enlightenment of that which is one, which cannot be experienced, and glimpses of it, which is an experience of it, that is comparable to watching a movie trailer, that is just a sample of the whole movie.

Any experience is an illusion, as it takes more than one to experience something and there is no more than that which is one
The outer and inner senses are two sides of the same coin – that is why it is easy to shift between them and also why they both are part of a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, the glimpses of enlightenment that can be experienced via the inner senses are not the ultimate reality. Well, in fact, nothing is.

As a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, there is nothing to wake up from and nothing ultimate to come back to. If there was, a world where there seems to be more than one would not be an illusion. Consequently, this article is as illusionary as a street sign pointing towards for example New York. It is just a pointer, and not what it is pointing towards.

We all know, the world presented to us in a set of virtual reality glasses is not real. Yet most have forgotten, that neither is the world presented to us by the senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

We all know, the world presented to us in a set of virtual reality glasses is not real. Yet most have forgotten, that neither is the world presented to us by the senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

We all know, that within the framework of a world where there seems to be more than one, the world simulated in virtual reality glasses is not real, and that when you take off the glasses, everything that appeared to be in the virtual world disappears, so that is not something to disturb you from seeing what is supposed to be the real world.

The world of the inner senses with glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one shows us the same is true in regards to the world that is experienced with the outer senses because it fades out the more the outer senses are turned inwards towards.

When the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome, there is nothing to experience, as it takes more than one to experience something.

But the experience of this inner world** full of lucid light, ethereal music, sweet nectar or bubbles of nothingness disappears, if the outer senses are completely closed off, as the contrasts, that glimpses of enlightenment seem to be made off, will dissolve, so there are no glimpses to experience, neither somebody specific to experience them – and therefore not something to hide, there is nothing but one perpetual present.

From the perspective of a world where oneness is divided into more than one, there is literally nothing in that which is one. But from the standpoint of oneness – though no such thing is possible, as it requires more than one to have a view of something – there is everything in that which one, as it is formless and therefore never ends.

Kind regards
Alexius


*) When rereading this article much later all memories of discomfort is gone, so do not worry, you will be OK if you choose to go with the flow of the inner senses.

**) Please do not take the expression in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings about an inner and outer world too literal. It should not be understood as there is a world inside of you. There is nothing inside or outside of you. The inner world rather refers to something, that it is not experienced to be in the world, you perceive to be outside of you.

NOTE ABOUT DYING FROM THE WORLD OF THE OUTER SENSES
To die from the outer senses and return to them again can be compared to rebooting a computer. You feel like a blank slate when coming back. The transition though of leaving the imagination of a world where there seems to be more than one and going where you cannot go, namely where there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, can be full of fear and discomfort, and that there is a chance, you will not make it back to a world where there seems to be more than one with a sane mind. There are no guarantees.

NOTE ABOUT MULTITASKING BETWEEN INNER AND OUTER SENSES
When you open up to the inner senses, they reveal their world at their own accord, which may be inconvenient in regards to the world that is experienced with the outer senses, so make sure to stay away from things and places, where the focus on the world of the outer senses is needed when you sense the inner senses are knocking at the door.

This is not a problem though, if you connect with the empty breath, as its function is to be an automatic gear between the inner and outer senses. You can read about this in hack #4, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss. If you quickly want to connect with the empty breath, check out Take-offs to ´the empty breath´Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´How to ignite a take-off to ´the empty breath´ and What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?.

Beyond the senses – or the outer senses versus the inner ones

Those who hear or feel the humming coming from far away as an echo of that which is one cannot use it to make themselves or the world better. But they will be used as a door to close the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one, so there is no experience to hide that which is one. This does not mean they will be transformed, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Neither does it mean that they will cease to exist, because they have never existed since there is no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
If a world where seems to be more than one is not real but that which I am is, it is not possible to be in such a world. Yet it is possible to pretend being ´there´. This is to say that most of the below article is written within the framework of pretending to be someone ´there´, so the experiences described in it – for example that the Earth stopped moving – is just as illusionary as any other experience in a virtual world.

Beyond the senses – or the outer senses versus the inner ones
The first time the world stood still was in my teen years. I looked out the window and everything was covered by snow. It was like the whiteness of outside of me turned everything white inside me while Donovan* gently was singing Jennifer Juniper.

I forgot to participate in the story of time and space, so the Earth stopped moving and the air was so thin, that there was no space between anything. Music was coming out of my speakers, yet the silence was so loud, that all I heard was the echo of that which is one.

Much later on a walk along the sea, the echo of that which is one was there again – and not so much later, when I was walking on a pedestrian street busy handing out flyers, the distant echo of that which is one was so intense, that even though people were moving on the street, there was no movement and no people. Do not know what there was – it did not seem tangible.

After being accustomed to hearing the echo of that which is one, I realised that this distant humming is what the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise,* and that the reason people even after years of chanting or contemplating do not hear it is that they are waiting for those words to reveal a higher understanding. But there is no understanding to be revealed, neither is there any need for that, when you actually hear the distant humming, that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises.

_IGP6225-Edit

You can only hear the music from the guitar on this image by imagining it because there is no real guitar in the image – it is a symbol. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The echo of that which is one
The word guitar is a symbol of something, that can make amazing sounds. Yet the word cannot make those sounds. In fact, there is no way to know what a guitar sounds like when you read the word guitar if you have not already heard what it is a symbol of.

It is a little bit the same with the words symbolising the distant humming of that which is one – and then again it is not exactly the same. A guitar can produce something, but the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God* symbolises cannot produce anything. It can be compared to the sound of a vacuum cleaner, which does not vacuum clean. It is just there when the vacuum cleaner is turned on.

Likewise, the humming, that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God* symbolises, is an echo ´hanging in the air´, when the imagination of a world where life is divided into more than one is turned on. The humming is the engine of such a world – not in the way that it produces it, but in the way that it is the energy, that makes it possible to imagine that you are someone specific in a world where there seems to be more than one.

When everything you know is undone, there is peace
It is not accidentally, that it is a vacuum cleaner that is used in the above description. The humming of that which is one is to be compared to a subtle version of the sound from a vacuum cleaner or the sound from the ventilation in a big place like an airport, or the fusion of all sounds in the world, or the sound at the edge of the breath (not the sound of breathing in, neither of breathing out, but at the edge of it – or rather on the top of it).

If you are into becoming famous or rich or making the world a better place according to a specific belief, this vibration is not for you. It has no power to change anything. It knows of nothing to make better. On the contrary. Everything conceivable is undone, which leaves nothing but that which is one. In other words, there is peace, because it takes more than one to not be at peace.

The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it
Apart from the last two sentences in the above paragraph, this article has not been about the enlightenment of that which is one. It cannot be heard, as that is an experience and it requires more than one to experience something. What I have been talking about is the experience of having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one in the form of hearing the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises, which we can have when the definable world of the outer senses become so distant that the distant humming from the edge of the universe is the nearest to us.

To hear or feel the distant humming, that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises is one aspect of experiencing glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one. The other aspects are to have amazing visions of light, the crispness of ethereal harmonies or the sweetness of oneness. The world of the outer senses is very focused on visual impact, so you may only have heard of the visual aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one.

Those glimpses are revealed by the inner senses when the ones are partly closed. In the world of the inner senses though there is only one of everything, so there is just one eye, one ear and so on, and they are not physically tangible.

As long you are experiencing the enlightenment of that which is one in one of its aspects, you are having glimpses of it, but if you stop perceiving them as if they can be defined like this or that way, there is nothing to define you as an experiencer, and so there is not someone definitive experiencing them, and so there is no difference between them and you. That is the enlightenment of that which is one.

What is real is never-ending, so all experiences are unreal
Compared to the enlightenment of that which is one or having glimpses of it, living as someone specific in the world of the outer senses feels like a joke – but why not enjoy the joke. There is nothing to lose. As you are not someone definitive, you can pretend to be anybody in the world of the outer senses. If you are into concepts of love, you can perceive the world through such glasses as if everything is love or a cry for love. It is all make-believe so anything will do.

When the world experienced through the outer senses is an illusion, one may conclude, that the world experienced through the inner senses is the real thing. But as what is real never ends, neither the inner or outer senses are real as all experiences have an end  – including the experiencing glimpses of enlightenment.

The enlightenment of that which is one is a journey without distance from a world where there seems to be more than one into that which is one
Metaphorically speaking you can say, that what you experience via the inner senses is a wall surrounding that which is one. The wall seems to have no substance. Yet it can be seen, heard, felt or tasted, and if you do not try to find order in it or in any way define it, the outer senses have nothing to work with and a door, that looks like a black hole with a thin frame of white light inside it and rapidly spiralling bright light around it, suddenly and very quickly sucks you into it.

There is no other side to this black hole because you have left the oneness of that which is you. You have never been definable or experienced anything. That is an illusion. In reality, that which is you is no different from that which is one – and there is no more than one.

All thoughts appearing to be you has to be left at the moment of death, if it is to serve as a portal to that which is one, so if they are picked up again in order to return to a world where there seems to be more than one, the person you appear to be will not have anything to tell about that which is one, because this person was not there. Yet there may be vague memories of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
I do not know the stories from those telling about their experience of death. Yet I know, that if they have much to say, it is not death but near-death, they are talking about – and that has nothing to do with death. It cannot be experienced, because if you are dead, there is nobody to experience it.

Tunnels of light seem to be a common near-death experience, which often is used to prove, that you are on a spiritual journey. The tunnels of light, however, are just a result of the brain not having enough oxygen to produce the images of a world as you expect it to look, so instead, it presents something abstract based on common second-hand knowledge stored in your subconsciousness.

It has nothing to do with spirituality, which is the formlessness of that which is one and consequently cannot be seen, as it requires more than one to see something. That is why the personality at the moment of death metaphorically speaking must be left at the entrance to oneness, so that there is nothing to enter it and therefore no awareness of having been there, if the personality is picked up again and again to a body that appears to be you in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The formlessness of oneness has no size – and what is sizeless has no beginning or end. In other words, there is no more than that which is one, so a world where there seems to be more than one does not exist. This cannot be comprehended by those believing to be someone definitive, as to them only what can be measured does exist.

There are, however, vague memories of the formlessness of that which is one, and due to these memories it feels, as if dying from a world where there seems to be more than one and return to it again from that which is one is to have the slate wiped clean – or like the machinery of the body has been rebooted.

First time I thought, I would become like those spaced-out persons considering themselves to be very spiritual. But after each reboot, I reappeared with a much stronger sense of the body – not because I believe to be in it, but because, that which I am is not in the world at all, and knowing that, it is so easy to pretend being something bodily like Alexius.

I never do anything so-called spiritual. When I wake up in the mornings I go for a long walk, until I come to this point and return back home. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

I never do anything so-called spiritual like for example meditation. When I wake up in the mornings, I go for a long walk from where I often return home around here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no spirituality in a world where there seems to be more than one
At the few so-called spiritual lectures that I have ever attended, the lecturers entertained the audience with stories and conclusions based on a single extraordinary experience from their past, that they seemed to think had changed them into something spiritual. Also based on this experience they seemed to be convinced, that it is possible to fuse physicality and spirituality, which is just as absurd as saying, it is possible to always have day and night at the same time in the same place.

Just like a computer cannot contain the physical world except in a simulated version twisted into two-dimensional or fake 3D images, a world where there seems to be more than one cannot contain that which is one, except in a twisted version of something that appears to be identifiably by what and where it is in time and space. Infinity becomes a thing, that is relative to finite – as if infinity is something extremely big.

Spirituality is the formlessness of that which is one. What is formless is endless. In other words, there is no more than that which is one, so if you are reading this, you must be mistaken. The experience of an article and that you are having it is an illusion. Yet this illusion is only possible to experience due to that which is one, as there is no more than that, so if you stop believing what you experience is real, all that is left is that which is one.

Kind regards
Alexius

NOTE: This article is part of hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one.

SH (ALONE) The ins and outs of a black hole

The endings of an uncompleted black hole literally look like zen brush strokes.The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This zen drawing literally looks like an uncompleted portal into the enlightenment of that which is one, except that the hole is not white and in this example of the portal neither black, although it is often called a black hole. Instead, it is full of the same chaotically and rapidly moving strokes of changing colours, which are outside the black strokes as well (but not part of this illustration). That is until the black strokes meet and the bright white light that explodes out of the hole fills up everything by extracting all thoughts making up what you believe to be, so that there is nobody to experience it, nor to be gracefully pulled through a hole that just like the bright white light is no more, as there is nothing but that which always was and is, since it is formless and therefore has no beginning and end, namely that which is one. This you do not know, because it takes more than one to know something. For the same reason neither do you know that the enlightenment of that which is one is not a process happening over time but one perpetual present, nor that you do not exist and never has since it takes more than one to exist. The graphic, which has been manipulated by Alexius, is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one is like a vacuum cleaner, that sucks out all the thoughts you ever have collected to experience yourself as someone definitive. Hence there is nobody left to detect, that nobody falls through a hole opening up from what at first may look like a Zen circle. Even though it is often called a black hole, it may not necessarily be black, neither white as in the image shown here, but probably full of the same rapid changing lucid colours surrounding the stroke, which by the way is more greyish than in this image.

The circle making up the so-called black hole is not made by one but two strokes that are drawn exceptionally quickly and smoothly without the use of any brush from what turns out to be the top of the circle. The two strokes are drawn at the same time and end up looking quite similar to the above image. That is if you like in this article compare it to a zen circle because by comparing it to a well-known image from the past, the enlightenment of that which is one is fenced off and you are back in a world of linear time.

In other words, the completion of the black hole is stopped by your definition of it as something recognisable, so you are not in free fall moving so fast that nothing seems to be moving through a hole that is no longer a hole but a light with no colour and substance and so bright that nothing is illuminated. Thus nothing seems to hide, there was and never will be more than the formlessness of that which is one.

So instead of being nobody on a timeless journey to the formlessness of oneness, you appear as if you still are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one because even though you were close to the enlightenment of that which is one, you did not bid it welcome.

Not a single thing of what you saw is the enlightenment of that which is one. As it takes more than one to see something, it cannot be seen, so the beginning of the black hole that you saw before returning to a world where there seems to be more than one is not the enlightenment of that which is one but a glimpse of it.

If you in anyway try to define anything in the enlightenment of that which is one, you fence it off, so it cannot extract your thoughts so you as nobody freely are falling through a black hole into that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you in any way try to see something definable in the enlightenment of that which is one – like colours for example – you are back in a world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

For the same reason, most of the above is not a description of the enlightenment of that which is one but glimpses of it*. The below, however, is a description of the enlightenment of that which is one, but as it cannot be experienced, the description is solely based on the vague memories that Alexius has of going where nobody can go.

These memories may seem to imply, that the enlightenment of that which is one is a sequence of events, but that is only because one perpetual present cannot be described in a world of linear time.

If you do not compare the strokes, that hastily draw up a black hole, with a zen circle or anything else, they are not defined, and so the ends of them meet without you noticing, there is nothing outside of them anymore, neither inside. No more colours or a black hole – just one bright light, that is neither opaque or transparent but so intense that it cannot be seen, nor can anything else, because there is not something to illuminate since that would require more than one and there is no more than that which is one.

In other words, there is no light and no you to imagine a substantial world that seems hide there never was or will be more than the that which is one since it is formless and thus without beginning and end.

In a black hole, just like in a dream, there is no sense of a physical world or ever having appeared to be someone in such a world. Nor is there a sense of any other world or being someone definitive. But there is a sense of weightles floating through an endless hole with no sides and light even though it is not dark.

There is not only a sense of being of something non-definable in an indefinable void but also that sensing this nothingness all of a sudden is going to end – presumably because it takes more than that to sense something.

This there is nobody to know. Probably because it also takes more than one to know something and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. No doubt that is why there is no more to tell.

To forget what and where you appear to be is to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Before the thoughts making up what you believe to be is absorbed by the extremely bright light that seems to explode in your face, you may sense that if you do not fight it by defining it, all thoughts collected to make you appear as if you are someone definitive will be extracted and left at the edge of a black hole, so there is nothing to be transported through this portal of antimatter into the formlessness of that which is one. If this is what you want, you better forget what you just read, so you do not use it to define the enlightenment of that which is one and thereby fences it off.

Even better, if you totally forget what and where you believe to be, there is no belief to hide that which is you is no different from that which is one, and that it has always been and always will be so.

The enlightenment of that which is one is not for those who believie to come from the heart or directly from the source, nor for those having direct experiences, compassion and whatnot, because states like that depend on the belief that you are someone definitive and there is no room for anyone in the enlightenment of that which is one, since that requires more than one.

Should you after haven read this feel, that you have not really gotten the ins and out of a black hole, you are lucky because there are no ins and out of it.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The form of a sonogram looks like the waves joining to make a black hole, that sometimes for just a moment looks like an embryo. The graphic is grabbed from the web

As the portal to the enlightenment of that which is one – the so-called black hole – is not something definitive, it may start off in other ways than in the above description. One glimpse of it, that Alexius have had many times, looks a bit like a sonogram – or rather a wide range of the triangle like shape in this image spinning so fast, that they seem to join each other around an indefinable centre until the speed makes them disappear and only their borderline is sensed like a glittering round white stroke with nothing but blackness inside it just before one bright light, more powerful than thousands of atomic bombs, erupts out of the darkness and fills up everything.

That which is one cannot be understood, because it takes more than one to understand something. Yet there is much to be understood in a world where there seems to be more than one in order to learn how to appear as if you are someone definitive there. But it is not understandable, why you believe to be in such a world.**

This description is based on the glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one, that Alexius had last night, while the description of the zen circle is based on a glimpse from the night before. At other times ´the black hole´ may look like the head of a horse (see the image in The ins and outs of the inner senses) or an embryo more developed than in the sonogram image (see the image in A perfect moment takes you back to the first moment of duality). Hence there is no specific pattern to be deducted, so do yourself a favour and forget all about understanding it.**

Life has no secrets

There is nothing to search for. Searching comes from the desire of more, and there is no more than that which is one.

There is nothing to search for. Searching comes from the desire to be and have more than the oneness of life, but there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Life has no secrets. It is impossible because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to have a secret. So how come so many are wondering about what it is and where to find it. The answer lies in the previous sentence. Life is that which is one, so if you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are without life. In other words, even though the oneness of life is used to experience a world where it seems to be divided into more than one, it is not there – just like a physical body is not in a dream, regardless being the host of it.

Though some like to think, that the word of god is something written, but there is nothing in the New Testament that indicates that. In fact the word of god can neither be written or spoken.

Some like to think, that The Word of God is something written, though nothing in the New Testament indicates that. In fact The Word of God can neither be written or spoken. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»In the origin The Word had been existing and That Word had been existing with God and That Word was himself God.« John 1:1, Aramaic Bible in Plain English.

Unfortunately most of those reading the New Testament think, that what is written there is ´The Word of God´. But as god is that which is one and it takes more than one to write or read, the New Testament has nothing to do with ´The Word of God´.

An echo of that which is one, however, can be heard and felt in a world where there seems to be more than one. Christianity calls it for The Word of God, and in Eastern religions, it is often symbolised by the words Aum and Sohang. You could say that the oneness of life sends out an echo of itself to call you home. This echo though does not reveal what oneness is, but what it is not, namely the nothingness in which you believe to be someone definitive in a tangible world. But as you have never left the oneness of life, since it is formless and therefore endless, it is, of course, a metaphor that it is calling you home.

Yet it seems possible to believe that you are someone definitive separated from the formlessness of oneness. This article is written within the context of this belief. In other words, it is within this context, hearing or feeling the echo of oneness is a call for going home.

This echo is not a sound with a beginning and end, so it is not a word that can be written or spoken. But it can be heard and felt, and that is very easy. Hardly anybody wants to hear or feel it though because to appear as someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one you must always be right since being wrong makes you appear to not be special. Not believing to be special is, however, the prerequisite for hearing and/or feeling the echo of oneness

Approaching the echo of oneness through ´The Word of God´ may be even more confusing than the endless chanting of ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´, as it is not a word that means anything.

No chanting or any other action like that is necessary to hear/feel the vibration, that is symbolized by the word Aum. It comes to you automatically, when you do not differentiate the sounds of the world but include them all. In other words, when you do not focus or concentrate.

No chanting or reading in scriptures is necessary to hear or feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises. It comes to you automatically, when the apparent difference of the vibes in the world does not make a difference, which they do not do if you do not try to exclude any of them, as if there are more than one. In other words, when you do not focus or concentrate on something specific you are not someone specific but the unpronounceable vibration Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises.

The vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises is …
… not a secret though it appears to be so if you are searching for an elitist understanding of it rather than actually hearing or feeling the vibration, which can be heard or felt whenever you do not focus on hearing or feeling something specific.

When you hear or feel the unpronounceable echo of oneness, the sense of being someone definitive disappears. Thus there is nothing to transform.

For ages people have been chanted Aum and Sohang or speculated about the meaning of The Word of God, assuming that if they just kept going on, the secret behind them would miraculous be revealed. But only the special self (read more about that here) looks for miracles because it thinks it is in charge of itself and it cannot make it. That which is one has no miracles to reveal because it takes more than one to reveal anything, and there is no more than that which is one.

Many may already have heard or felt the echo of oneness coming from the edge of the universe, but as they are biassed towards something mysterious and sensational, they do not pay attention to the quiet humming, that constantly is there, as it is the basis for the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

It only takes one ´chant´ of Aum or Sohang to hear of feel the echo of oneness. That is if you are not looking for peak experiences of an almighty god, love or something mysterious and sensational that can be mentally explained.

To tune into hearing the echo of oneness …
… first say the two letters of AUM very slowly and when you come to M, do not really say but whisper it until you say nothing and there is a gentle humming coming from somewhere in the distance. This is the echo of oneness.

This is the Hindi symbol of ´sohang´– grabbed on the web. <i>The graphic is grabbed from the web</i>.

The Hindi symbol of Sohang is grabbed from the web.

You can also get in touch with this distant humming by saying sohang – eventually combined with listening to the sound coming from the breath. Say so when breathing in, and after a tiny break say hang when breathing out. The so is not really important, except for tuning in. The same applies to the first part of hang. After having said so-ha(n) you remain on (a)ng at the end of breathing out, and then let the sound continue by itself – what remains without you saying anything is the humming, that is the echo of oneness.

Another way to hear the echo of life is to stop focusing on any sound in particular until you cannot distinguishing the sounds that you are hearing from each other. Hence they turn into one sound, namely the echo of oneness.

You do not have to sit in a certain posture to meditate, repeat a mantrachantpraywearing special clothes or be in a special place with special people where the air is polluted with incense to hear the echo of oneness, neither does there have to be stillness inside or outside of you. All you have to do is to be devoted to whatever you are appear to do.

One of the first times Alexius heard this humming from the edge of the universe, he was busy handing out flyers on a pedestrian street, and just like that the sum of all sounds turned into a distant humming that cancelled out the noise of the street – also the feeling of being there, as the sum of all feelings turned everything into a transparent one.

Knowing it is there, it is easier to connect with it
When Alexius was a child, he preferred the music from a radio station called Radio Luxembourg. It was very hard to tune into it in his native country Denmark because it was on a frequency located between two very noisy stations. But as he knew of its existence and also where to look, with much determination and the finest subtlety he succeeded in tuning into Radio Luxembourg.

If you wonder how it is possible to hear or feel a vibration coming from the edge of the universe, check out the article A perfect moment takes you back to the first moment of duality.

Likewise, you, in the same manner, should be able to tune into the echo of oneness, now that know about the humming of oneness from the edge of the universe. If there appear to be too much noise in the head – especially the left side can be full of noise from the working of the brain – listen to your right side without focusing on anything in specific.

To feel the echo of oneness
Apart from hearing the vibration, that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises, you can also feel it – especially if you are more emotional than audio minded. Just do the same steps as above but put more weight into feeling it. Feeling it can be compared to sensing your body purring like a cat, or like it trembles of fear but without fearing of anything, or shaking of coldness but more lightly and not feeling cold or anything else specifically, or feeling the effect of quickly drinking the foam of Coca-Cola which in this case is not limited to bubble or tingle in a specific part of the body or in that alone but all over.

In more intense moments it may feel like you are nothing but the vibration from an earthquake or from a big laundry machine on the spin cycle. It is not just in the body but also outside of it, as if there is no transition between it and the appearances that seem to be outside of it. If you do not panic but go with the flow of it, you forget about the body and anything outside of it, so there is no memory to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

And as it takes more than one to be something, what you believe to be is no more. In other words, contrary to the experience of a mild tingling in the body, the intense version of it ends up in having no experience at all, since there is nobody to experience it. Normally the reflexes of fear for not being someone definitive quickly produces experiences of more than one, so you again appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. 

In the article Nothing can stop you on Highway One except your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one you can read more about the fear of enlightenment and being rebooted as someone definitive.

That is what in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is called the enlightenment of that which is one, but that is a story for another article, as this one is devoted to the experiences of it in the form of hearing or feeling the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise. These experiences are not the enlightenment of that which is one but glimpses of it. See the appendix regarding the enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it.

Feeling or hearing the echo of the primordial vibration is basically the same – like two sides of the same coin. It is not advisable though to encompass both at the same time. Well, it is possible to encompass any of them but to be encompassed by them one by one.

In the case of Alexius he is more into hearing than feeling, so it took him a long time to feel the echo of oneness, and when he finally did – after several years – the belief in being someone specific was momentarily undone, so there was nothing definable fencing off the aspect of feeling the enlightenment of that which is one, which you do not feel as there are no conscious of you being someone definitive.

See Last night I died again from the world, if you want to read about when Alexius finally died from the outer senses of feeling a world where there seems to be more than one.

nov-21-davidopeWhat does it sound like?
Some people complain that their neighbour is vacuuming while they are meditating, but most likely the neighbour is at sleep and it is not the sound of a vacuum cleaner you hear but the distant vibration from the edge of the universe that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises.

If you look for a big and special experience, you may brush off something so simple as the gentle humming coming from the edge of the universe and yet from nowhere. The humming can also be compared to the distant sound of the air conditioning in a big place like a supermarket or an airport. It can also be compared to the sound of a wave at the shore, that never stops going up.

Already familiar with the humming that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises, you do not tune into it all the time, if you still want to appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. But you may tune into it every now and then just to make sure you have not forgotten the key to the formlessness of oneness – just like you sometimes may check your pocket to hear or feel, that you have not forgotten the key to your physical home.

Life has nothing to give because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to give something
Let us return to the idea of the so-called secrets of life. What secrets does life hide? None. Were you asked to buy a book or take a special course to know what Aum, Sohang and The Word of God is a symbol of? No, and you did not have to wait until the end of the article to read about how to hear or feel the echo of life. You got it right away without beating about the bush.

If you have peculiar questions like: What is life and what is the meaning of it, you have separated yourself from it – or rather imagined that it is possible to do so, because separation from that which is one is not possible, as there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

So whatever you imagine to be and have in a world where there seems to be more than one is not real. Yet you like to believe, that if you try hard enough, life will reveal its secret reality to you. But life has nothing to reveal because life is that which is one and it takes more than one to reveal anything.

The above article is Alexius´ way of communicating, how you actually can hear and feel an echo of oneness. To use ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´ as a stepping stone for that is not a new idea, but so far it has mostly been promoted in mysterious ways by people, who do not hear or feel it themselves, but hope that if they repeat those words again and again a miracle will happen. Looking for that, however, they will miss the gentle humming coming from the edge of the universe.

It was not through the words ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´ that Alexius started to hear or feel the humming, that they symbolise. Since his teenage years he has been used to being ´lifted´ by this humming – for example while watching a movie, having a walk with his parents or sitting all by himself in a park. And so when he was about 40 years old it suddenly dawned on him, that this is what people are trying to reach, when chanting ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´.

It is not about reaching it though, but to tune into it so that it reaches you. When Alexius can do this so can you, because even though you may appear to be different from him, what makes it possible for the two of you to experience you are different is the same, namely the formlessness of oneness from where this humming comes.


APPENDIX:
As it takes more than one to experience something, the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be experienced. Yet glimpses of it can be experienced in the form of seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting it. In other words, to hear or feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises is to have a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one.

The article Beyond the senses – or the outer senses versus the inner ones elaborates on the enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it. Below are links to articles that go more in-depth with this, and also the other aspects of having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one:
