If you believe that you experience non-duality, you uphold the belief it is possible to be and have more than that which is one

Often the excitement of daily life in a world of duality does not seem to be enough. Hence it is enhanced with memorable holidays or remarkable peak experiences at courses and seminars – or perhaps totally replaced by video games or virtual reality glasses. This replicates the making of duality: the everlasting peace of non-duality was judged as bland and replaced by a fantasy of excitement in a world of duality. See hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you are used to the taste of Thai sauces reinforced with a flavour enhancer like MSG (see Wikipedia about MSG), the natural ones may seem tasteless. For example, a reviewer of a Thai sauce without a flavour enhancer complained that it did not taste like the real thing.

In reality, it is the other way around. The sauce with a flavour enhancement is fake, and the sauce without it is authentic. Likewise, the everlasting peace of non-duality is true. And the exciting experiences of duality are bogus because they never last.

But if you believe to be someone in a world of duality – and you do because otherwise, you would not be able to read this – you are more fascinated by the fleeting flavour of adventures than the constant taste of peace.

You live in a fantasy world if you believe to experience non-duality because it takes more than one to be aware of something and non-duality is that which is one.

No worries. It is not a problem that you fancy the flavour enhancer that seems to multiply oneness into a world where there seems to be more than one. See From non-duality to duality and back. Unlike food, which you, in the context of such a world, can jazz up with flavour enhancers, you cannot alter oneness because it requires more than one to make a change. Consequently, oneness can only be modified in a fantasy where there seems to be more than one.

Since there there is no more than that which is one, it only takes one to undo the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one.

However, no matter the number of appearances in such an imagination, in reality, there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. That is why there is nothing to realise in a world where there seems to be more than one other than it is make-believe. This is uncovered all by itself because everything imagined has an end. If you cannot wait for the fantasy to finish, apply one or more of Alexius´ Duality Hacks. They undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, while you have fun appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This is not to say, Alexius´ Duality Hacks are more genuine than anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one. They are just as fake as everything else that calls for more than one. But since they do not claim to make a difference, they do not enhance the belief in separation. Thus, eventually, there does not appear to be more than that which is one.

Reality cannot be known because it is that which is one and it takes more than one to realise something

Since non-duality is that which is one and it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be realised. So when you are not aware of anything, nothing seems to hide that which cannot be known. The purpose of Alexius´ Duality Hacks is therefore not to realise non-duality but that being aware of something is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Mysterious experiences or writings like zen poems, have nothing to do with non-duality. It is not mystical, pure or anything else because it takes more than one be something and non-duality is that which is one. Hence  Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, like everything else that calls for more than one, is part of the illusion that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

But since Alexius´ Duality Hacks expose this illusion, you are also revealed as nothing when you apply them. Hence there does not seem to be something to hide, there never was or will be more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

No matter what and where you appear to be, it is like in a dream, you are not there. It is a fantasy. Nobody, however, is making it because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to do something.

This may seem to take some time. But that is part of the illusion. There is no time because reality, namely the formlessness of oneness, is one perpetual present. Read more about that here. That is why there is no hurry to undo the belief in being someone with a beginning and an end. Nor any reason not to enjoy that. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

In a world of duality, there is no compassion without brutality

With eyes closed, you may still see images of the world because the brain does not need information from your sensory system to produce them. This is just something it claims to distract you from realising, that it has created all your experiences of something from out of nothing (read more about that here). That includes the experiences perceived to be spiritual and those implying you are someone definitive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since it requires more than one to have a shape, oneness is formless and therefore endless. And since it also calls for more than one to experience something and there is no more than that which is one, the awareness of something is an illusion. This hallucination, however, seems to become real when oneness is imagined being split into two, an observer and the observed, as they appear to confirm the existence of each other. Hence the observer concludes that it must go on separating to be alive.

But doing so destroys the pairs of opposites that oneness originally was split into, so each side could define the other, and their interaction would produce a full experience of duality. Hate, for example, was paired with love to define the experience of that. When the link is broken, however, there is no hate to define love, wherefore it feels incomplete.

That is why the observer presses on to find real love until it realises, that hate and love are two sides of the same coin, so you cannot have one without the other. Nor can you have peace without a fight, relief without an ache, action without inaction, perfection without imperfection, and so on. As love, therefore, cannot be felt without hate, you deceive yourself if you claim to only feel love. It is a mental concept you have plugged into by thinking about hugging, for example, and holding on to the thoughts that confirm a theoretical idea of pure love. Read more about that in hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

Fortunately, you do not need to understand the nature of duality, if you want to undo the belief that separation is possible. On the contrary, since it requires more than one to understand something, it is not knowing what and where you are, that undoes this belief.

All Alexius´ Duality Hacks take you back one second in linear time to the nothingness from where the brain has fabricated your present experience. In this case, that you are someone definitive who now reads, it took the brain one second to invent this experience from out of nothing (read more about that here). Being empty, though, you are in the bliss of non-being. Thus the experience is not perceived to be something.

You cannot bid welcome the enlihtenment of that which is one when you want to exist because it takes more than one to be alive. This does not mean you need to die. That also calls for more than one.

The universe you believe to experience is nothing but fragmented memories of a world, that could have been, but never was because there is no more than that which is one. Read more about that there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you remain in this state of not-knowing for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, the enlightenment of that which is one set in. Read more about that in hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one. And read more about a state of not-knowing in hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

The enlightenment of that which is one does not alter or transform anything, as that requires more than one. Instead, it wipes out everything that calls for more than one. Hence there is nobody to be aware of a fantasy about somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one, and, therefore, not somebody who appears to hide, there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness.

Leaving a state of not-knowing before the enlightenment of that which is one set in, you return to the fantasy of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one with the slate wiped clean. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

Thus you start from the ground up, moving very slowly as if you practise qigong. Unlike that, however, your stretching has no other purpose than to fine-tune the body as a tool for the experience of duality. This dedication to duality is also why you do not attempt to pull apart the pairs making up the experience of it but comply with their synergy to get the full experience of duality. The collaboration of love and hate, for example, fix you up with the complete experience of a relationship.

If memories from your childhood is the basis for your perception of a movie you watch as a grown-up, you are out of sync with its plot. It, therefore, seems to make you frustrated rather than entertained. Fortunately, this is corrected right away if you perceive the plot, or your judgment of it, as it is what it is.

This perception makes the plot amusing no matter how it evolves because you are in sync with the itt as it is and not as what you think it is. Likewise, when the brain´s script is perceived as ´it is what it is.´ Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

Like a movie, the experience of polarity unfolds as scripted by the director. Since that is not you, there is nothing you can change but your perception of it. When that is in sync with the script as it is, which it automatically is when the slate has been wiped clean, the director of the script, namely the brain, rewards you with shots of happiness for supporting it. Read more about that here.

Eventually, this makes you so relaxed that you have no more to ask for. Hence the belief in being and having more than that which is one has been undone while you had fun experiencing more than one.


The purpose of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teaching is not to explain the truth but to show there is nothing to explain, as it requires more than one to do so and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

All experiences, including those perceived to be spiritual, are bogus because it takes more than one to be conscious of something and there is no more than that which is one. The same, of course, applies to this or any other explanation in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. None of them are true.

Nor the explanation about imagining oneness being split in two. Since it is impossible, there is nothing to undo but the belief that separation is possible. That is why Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings gladly confirm, they are nothing, and, therefore, do not have something to enhance the belief in separation, so it is phased out the more you read them.

In the below articles, you can read more about the illusion of being someone who experiences something:

Somebody cannot bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, but nobody can

When every experience is perceived as a symbol of that which is one, none of them has the power to fend off the enlightenment of that which is one, because symbols are powerless. See hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Fear and other emotions may seem to be a hindrance for the enlightenment of that which is one. It is not the emotions, though, that fend it off but that you believe they are yours. That which is you does not feel anything because it takes more than one to do so, and it is no different from that which is one. For the same reason, that which is you does not think, nor is it conscious of anything.

This does not mean, you should try to stop this. First of all, that which is you cannot stop anything as that calls for more than one. Secondly, while you appear to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is not possible to stop being aware of feelings and thoughts since that is what makes you appear to be there.

It is, of course, possible to deny the awareness of thoughts and feelings by meditating, for example. But whether you establish yourself to be someone who has something or nothing, you are definable and thus in denial of that which is you, as oneness is formless.

Pretending to be someone, on the other hand, what you have is not yours because what you pretend to be you are not. Thus nobody is having thoughts and feelings or being conscious of anything. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation. Consequently, nobody bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

This is not the only way to become a nobody. As everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, there is no fear without trust, so if you are so full of fear that there is nothing else, it cannot be defined by trust. Therefore, since you are full of nothing, you are not somebody but nobody. See hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness.

You could also stick to being the basic self by perceiving any kind of experience, whether it appears mundane or spiritual, as ´it is what it is.´ See hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. Since that means emotions do not stick to you, they do not fend off the enlightenment of that which is one. Nor will they prevent you from having a marvellous time in a world where there seems to be more than one until the enlightenment of that which is one erases everything that requires more than one.

You do not need to refrain from sex or anything else to make these or any other duality hack work. If you are willing to have the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, Alexius´ Duality Hacks apply themselves, the more you read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

The willingness comes by itself when you admit, you are not willing to have this belief undone because the acknowledgement of that confirms what and where you appear to be is make-believe.

APPENDIX:
Since the application of the above duality hacks requires more than one, they are as illusionary as anything else in a world in a world of duality, including the writer and reader of this. The purpose of them, however, is not to make us seem like we are somebody but that we, just like anything else that calls for more than one, are nothing because non-duality is formless and therefore endless so there is no more than that which is one.


Read about the enlightenment of that which is one in HACK #6, The inward-facing senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it.

The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it

You know this pic is not how the physically world really look. It is rather a fantasy, thar is only possible due to physical life, that it therefore is a symbol of. Likewise the physical world is a symbol of life even though the physical world has nothing to do with life.

No matter how many beautiful glimpses you get of this mountain, it has nothing to do with its reality. You will have to go there to see what it really looks like. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

We let ourselves be deceived by the outward-facing senses into believing that a world in which everything seems to be separated by time and space is real. Still, when these senses are turned inwards, there is no time and space, and therefore nothing to uphold the belief in separation, neither in the appearance of you as someone definitive.

Without the belief in separation, there is not something to hide, that the abstractness of the inward-facing senses flows straight into an explosion coming out of a black hole or maybe into it. There is no way to know which way it is because this is the enlightenment of that which is one, and it takes more than one to know anything. Also, an explosion may not be the best word to use because it is nothing but empty space carrying the nothingness of you into the formlessness of that which is one. End of story or what?

The formlessness of that which is one is endless
This is not the end of the story because what is formless is endless – not in the sense that it lasts forever. On the contrary, it lasts no time but one perpetual present. However, this never-ending story cannot be written in a world defined by time and space because everything has an end in such a world. In terms of the ending, though, returning to the formlessness of that which is one is the termination of time and space – at least that is how it seems within the context of linear time.

Researches from University of California Santa Barbara have proved that human cells and neutron stars have something in common. Both are namely built of layers – looking like a parking garage with many floors that are connected via steps.

But as there is nothing else than one perpetual present, the only thing that ends is the imagination of a world defined by time and space. Yet reading this article, you still believe in this imagination of a tangible world constructed of layer upon layer of thoughts, added in such a way that it seems there are different levels in this capsule of time and space. Within this context, it also appears as if there are levels of turning the outward-facing senses inwards and that the more the inward-facing senses take over, the more you occur to have glimpses of enlightenment.

It is a relief, when glimpses of enlightenment slowly but surely undoes the belief in being someone definitive – but very unsettling if you want to hang onto this belief.

These glimpses, however, are not the enlightenment of that which is one because there are no levels in that which is one. Nevertheless, they slowly but surely undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, contrary to the enlightenment of that which is one, whereas it is timeless – it takes no time to have this belief undone.

Here is another glimpse of the mountain from the first photo. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

However, the timelessness of that which is one cannot be brought into a world defined by time and space, so you will not be able to know what it is if you experience reappear in such a world after having bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one.

Yet you will have vague memories of it, and that is enough to constantly be reminded, there is no more than that which is one, and consequently all experiences – whether they seem to be so-called spiritual or mundane – are illusions, as it takes more than one to experience something.

Glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one are experienced with the inward-facing senses, while being aware of the world of the outer sense as well – although it seems quite distant.

But to bid the enlightenment of that which is one welcome the outward-facing senses must be completely closed. In other words, there are no awareness of the world of the outward-facing senses and after entering the enlightenment of that which is one there is neither no awareness of the inward-facing senses. Actually, there is no awareness at all, as it takes more than one to be aware of something.

To sum it up: When partially turning off the outward-facing senses, the inward-facing senses is only partly triggered, so you just have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which is an experience you have while still aware of appearing to be someone in the world of the outward-facing senses.

These glimpses can be compared to watching a movie trailer and not the whole movie – but then again, it is not really so, because both the trailer and the film is something you experience, and the enlightenment of that which is one, that is bid welcome by completely turning off the inward-facing senses, cannot be experienced.

The enlightenment of that which is one is not a personal experience, but glimpses of it are
The technique for tasting the nectar of life (see the previous article Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment) I like to do during the day – not so much for the taste of it, but for the sphere of indifference, that it just like the empty breath* induces.

This is the look of the mountain in the two first photos when you are almost on top of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being indifferent, I am not distracted from going with the flow of the ongoing glimpses of the enlightenment, whenever I am not dealing with something that craves much attention in the world of the outward-facing senses – and if I am involved in something that demands much attention, the indifference towards it makes sure that the perception of it is founded on glimpses of the enlightenment. In other words, the world is experienced, but not as if I am there. It is more like sitting in a cinema and imagining being in the world on the screen.

Depending on the strength of the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, it is like momentarily dying from the world of the outward-facing senses, so if you appear to be occupied by something there, it can be very disturbing.

Glimpses of ethereal harmonies come and go as they please. In the case of Alexius, he enjoys waking up in the morning accompanied by the distant sound of ethereal harmonies, but when he at night closes his eyes to fall asleep, the ongoing spirals of light, which are brighter than the light from his lamps and keeps coming, distracts him from falling asleep. 

During the day, there are also glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, mainly in the form of short splashes of lucid light and hearing or feeling the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises.

Besides, there are vague memories of passing both the outer and inward-facing senses into the enlightenment of that which is one, where all thoughts and feelings collected to justify the belief in a world defined by time and space is extracted so that there is no belief to hide that which has no beginning or end and therefore is everything, namely the formlessness of oneness.

This image of the same mountain, as in the other pictures in this article, again shows that you can have many different glimpses of it and that they are all coloured by the one having the glimpses. The Enlightenment of that which is one is not coloured by the one experiencing it is impossible to do that since it would require more than one. In other words, there is nothing personal about the enlightenment of that which is one. Yet, describing it via vague memories, it is like everything else, where more than one seems to be involved, coloured by the personality of the describer as well by the one interpreting the description.

Trying to make something last only appears to be meaningful in a world where everything has an end
Glimpses of enlightenment, which most confuses with the enlightenment of that which is one, may leave you with the impression that it is possible to fuse heaven and earth by prolonging the glimpses via meditation or other kinds of techniques that seem to make you able to transform energies in such a way that heaven and earth merge.

The idea of heaven and hell is an idea based on duality, which is founded on contrasts like that. And as you cannot have one without the other, you can never have only heaven in a world of duality. Neither in non-duality, because it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to be in heaven.

This idea of a better world is founded on the belief that you are in control and, therefore, can create a world as you see fit. Neither dictators, rich people, political or so-called spiritual-minded persons have ever succeeded in creating a world in the way they think it should be. But they assume it is something in themselves or others that need to be adjusted for it to happen. But no matter how much you correct, all you get are more frustrations because there is nothing to correct but the belief that you are definitive.

Whether you experience, that you are free in the now, spiritual or whatnot, it is echoes of past conditioning, that you hold onto with the sole purpose of being someone special in a world defined by time and space.

Instead of having this belief undone, most, who have had one or more glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one, start teaching how to make the world better – as if there is a world to make better. They put together a new philosophy based on their interpretation of one or more glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, mixed up with speculative ideas about spirituality and maybe ancient traditions of meditation and whatnot. They may, for example, encourage not being conditioned so that you can be free in the now. But the experience of that or anything else is based on the conditioned belief that you are someone defined by time and space.

You freely choose to give Facebook all your info in exchange for being able to construct a personality in its virtual world, as if this construction constitutes a real person.

Time and space is not a fact, but a belief system, that you blindly follow. You choose to be conditioned by it so that it seems to be a fact, that you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space instead of the formlessness of that which is one.

Here is yet another glimpse of the mountain in the other photos. This image is shot on the hill while driving down. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Much to his surprise, he wrote lots of new articles only about the empty breath, when he was proofreading hack #6.3 The inward-facing senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it, which became a new hack, namely hack #4, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss.

NOTES:

Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment

There is no life in the world. It is to be compared to a dream, which, no matter how beautiful it may appear, is an illusion.

Although the formlessness of that which is one is the power making it possible to simulate a world where there seems to be more than one, it is not feasible for it to be in the simulation – just like it is not possible for the street simulated in this image to be in the picture, or for a dreamer to be in a dream.

When the formlessness of life is perceived as the sole cause of any experience – whether so-called spiritual or mundane – you never play somebody else´s game. Even if it may seem so, they are not the reason for what you appear to do and say. Neither is the person you seem to be.

There is only one reason for your apparent thoughts, feelings, conversations and actions, namely the formlessness of life. In other words, it is not someone definitive who thinks, feels, says or does something.

As life is formless and thus without beginning and end, everything definable is lifeless. Yet everything without life symbolises it, because there is no more than the formlessness of life.

This does not mean that it is the formlessness of life that thinks, feels, says or does something. But that it is the energy that makes it possible to experience as if someone is doing this, although there is no more than the formlessness of life since formlessness has no beginning or end.

Neither does it mean that you have found the formlessness of life in a world defined by time and space, but that everything there is perceived to be a symbol of it. As both the experiencer and the experienced therefore are symbols of that which makes it possible to perceive a world where the formlessness of life seems to be divided into more than one, the apparent differences in such a world do not make a difference.

Read more about differences not making a difference hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness.

The echo of that which is one, which often is symbolised by the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God and which comes from the edge of the universe can be heard or felt right now via the inner senses, because they are not limited by time and space.

The echo of that which is one, which is often symbolised by the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God and which comes from the edge of the universe, can be heard or felt and heard via the inward-facing senses because they are not limited by time and space.

Hearing or feeling the echo of life
Appearing in a world defined by time and space as a symbol of the formlessness of life, you do not pump up the volume of music to hear or feel it, but to be reminded that it is the formlessness of life that makes it possible to have the experience of hearing and feeling something.

The echo of oneness does not reveal what that which is one is, but what it is not, namely the nothingness in which you believe to be someone definitive in a tangible world.

This is not to say that the formlessness of life can be heard and/or felt in a world defined by time and space. It is not possible to hear or feel formlessness. But it is possible to listen to the echo of it coming from the edge of the universe. This unpronounceable vibration, which often is symbolised by Aum, Sohang or The Word of God, is heard or felt when you are more attentive to the world of the inward-facing senses than that of the outer ones.

The Hebrew word Elohim was originally a symbol for one perpetual present.

The word god, which is a translation of the Hebrew word Elohim, was at first meant to be a metaphor for that which is one and never ends. Hence the word god was originally meant to symbolise one perpetual present. As this is not understandable, when you believe to be someone in a world of linear time, the meaning of the word gradually was changed, so that god became a symbol for one almighty force believed to have created the world defined by time and space in its own image.

But what is not definable cannot create something definable. Hence a world defined by time and space is an illusion and so is the perceived creator of such a world.

Since none of the aspects of the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be experienced, hearing or feeling the unpronounceable vibration coming from the edge of the universe is not the enlightenment of that which is one but a glimpse of it. Neither is seeing or tasting the enlightenment of that which is one, since it is an experience and therefore just as illusionary as any other experience (see All experiences are equally unreal).

But as these illusionary glimpses of enlightenment are not of the world experienced by the outward-facing senses but by the inward-facing senses, experiencing them from there while still being aware of the world of the outer senses, they can undo the deception of the outer senses – not abruptly like the enlightenment of that which is one, but little by little. Click here if you want to read more about the distinction between the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

In the world of the outward-facing senses you must always plan for the future in order to uphold the illusion of linear time.

The more the outward-facing senses that perceive a world defined by time and space is turned inwards, the more a world not limited by time and space is experienced by the inward-facing senses. This is why it takes no time to go to the edge of the universe (you can read more about the illusion of time by clicking here) – where the echo of the primordial vibration that Aum, Sohang, or The Word of God symbolises is used to create a fantasy of a world constructed by time and space in such a way that it seems to be genuine until you hear or feel this echo.

This is the Hindi symbol of ´sohang´ – grabbed from the web

The Hindi symbol of Sohang.

»With every exhalation the soul recites ‘Hang’ and with every inhalation it recites ‘So’. Thus every soul counts the mantra of Sohang (So plus Hang) twenty-one thousand and six-hundred times every day and night.« Gherand Samhita, stanza 84.

In Eastern religions the echo of god or rather one perpetual present is symbolised by the word ´Aum´ or ´Sohang´ and in the New Testament by ´The Word of God´: »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.

One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one perceives ´The Word´ in the above quote as a metaphor for the unpronounceable vibration you hear or feel when not being totally focused on experiencing the world of the outward-facing senses. The unenlightened, however, speculates about what exact words this is hinting at, even though there is not a single verse in the Bible referring to ´The Word of God´, as if it is written or can be spoken.

The vibration that AUM or Sohang symbolizes comes from the edge of the universe, which is only far away if you let yourself be deceived by a world defined by linear time as experienced through the outer senses.

Glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one is an echo of the formlessness of oneness coming out of a black hole at the edge of the universe. This includes the vibration often symbolised by the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God. It is as close to you as anything else experienced in the world of the outward-facing senses, as the world of the inward-facing senses is not ruled by time and space. Thus you can go directly to the edge of the universe and hear or feel the formlessness of that which is one coming out of a black hole. It is also there that you see or taste it.

One way to turn the outward-facing senses inwards to hear or feel the echo of oneness is to not be exclusive but inclusive. When you include all that you hear or feel completely unedited – or rather are willing to do so – the sum of everything in the world of the outward-facing senses is heard as a humming coming from the edge of the universe. It sounds or feels like nothing and everything at the same time.

In such a perfect moment, you appear to be both in the world of the outer and inward-facing senses at the same time but without any sense of separation between them. A perfect moment though is not a moment where you are filled up with new energy or anything else since you are indifferent to the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one. Being that, however, you feel relieved.

You can also use the word Aum or Sohang as a launching pad for hearing or feeling the humming coming from the edge of the universe. Read the article Life has no secrets to learn how to do this without spending years of meditating, chanting and whatnot.

If you want to read especially about the inward-facing senses, check the previous article A reintroduction of enlightenment, inward and outward-facing senses, or the next one The ins and outs of the inward-facing senses, or the older ones Beyond the senses – or the outward senses versus the inner ones and The inward-facing senses, enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

Be aware that the ways described in this article to have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one will not work, if you look forward to be or have more in a spiritual, mental, emotional or materialistic way. This does not mean, you must avoid being or having more but not care about how much.

When your eyes become single, there is no separation to hide the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When your eyes become single, there is no separation to hide the enlightenment of that which is one.

The third eye
Appearing in the world as a symbol of life, you do not close your eyes to go to sleep, but to see glimpses of the formlessness of life, which is done via the inner sense called the third eye, that is a single ´eye´ in the middle of the two eyes above the two eyebrows.

»The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.« Matt 6:22, King James Bible. This makes much sense to one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one but obviously not to the unenlightened, because in the new international version of the New Testament this sentence has been changed to: »The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.«

How this makes sense to the unenlightened, Alexius does not know. Yet he knows it makes no sense to one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

When you for whatever reason – maybe due to being very desperate, drunk or tired – have no energy to focus, the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome by completely closing down the outward-facing senses. First time this happened for Alexius was when he in his early 20s returned home totally exhausted after a long nights work of taxi driving and simply was too tired to focus.

In other words, to be offbeat, exhausted, confused or maybe even drunk is a way to close the outward-facing senses, so that there is no world to see and therefore nothing to hide the enlightenment of that which is one. In fact anything that is not part of a scheme to fabricate images defined by time and space will do.

If that includes drugs Alexius does not know, because he has not experienced them. Yet he can say that from looking at others taking drugs, that it seems to be more about expanding the consciousness of a world where there seems to be more than one than undoing it.

»Direct your eyes toward the middle of the eyebrows and meditate upon your own self. It is Shambhavi Mudra, the most secret practice of all the Tantra scriptures.« Gherand Samhita, stanza 59.

The positioning of the body, while activating the third eye, does not matter.

The positioning of the body, while activating the third eye, does not matter, as long as the body does not bother you.

Practically speaking you can close the visual outer sense and open the inner eye by closing the eyes and lightly, without any concentration, hold a finger on the third eye. It is best to do this in a dark room, so you do not think the revelation of light comes from the world of the outward-facing senses.

If something like this is dechiffered into different colors and forms, you will have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, but if you do not judge any colors or forms to be different from each other the apparent differences will explode into one bright light.

If having an inner vision like this and it is deciphered into an experience of different colours and shapes around a centre, it is a glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one. If you on the other hand do not judge the apparent different colours and forms to make a difference or to come from somewhere specific, one bright and colourless light, that seems to explode from out of nowhere wipes out all thoughts collected to form you into someone definitive, so that there is nothing to hide that there never was and never will be anything else than the formlessness of oneness, because formlessness has no end.

As the sense of sight is always looks for the greatest contrast of light, your closed eyes automatically search around in the darkness until they move inwards and upwards towards the third eye from where they settle down at a light show expose at such a speed that the apparent contrast between the splashes of colours hardly can be perceived.

If no contrasts are perceived at all the colours turn into a white light, that is so bright that it is not contrasted by something or illuminating anything. That is the enlightenment of that which is one.

»Touching eyeballs as a feather, lightness between them opens into the heart and there permeates the cosmos.« Sochanda Tantra, stanza 13.

If your eyes do not automatically move inwards and upwards into the area of the inward-facing senses, that is above the eyebrows, you may help them by gently pressing the thumb and middle finger across each eyeball from outer corner to inner, while having the forefinger on the third eye.

But this is not really commendable, since even the slightest effort requires focus, and it is not focus but defocus that bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one or glimpses of it. Furthermore this may give you the impression that certain physical postures will open the third eye.

None of the inward-facing senses can be reached via a specific posture or way of thinking. Deactivating the outward-facing senses, however, can be achieved in this way, so if you find a specific technique that seems to be helpful in this regard by all means go for it. Yet the fastest way to deactivate the outer senses is to not know what and where you are.

One way to to deactivate the outward-facing senses is to use an eye massager with infrared heat fusion technology, such as Breo iSee4 Eye Massager. Besides from turning off the outer sense of seeing, the heat soften the eyes. And when they are relaxed, they do not focus. Hence they automatatically turn inwards and upwards and merge with the third eye. This massager also does wonders for the body.

»… and there shall be no light there, and they need no candle there, neither the light of the sun, for the Lord God giveth them light.« Rev. 22:5

The thought construction that seems to keep you together as someone tangible is left at the edge of a black hole.

The thought construction that seems to keep you together as someone tangible must be left at the edge of a black hole, so that there is nothing to gracefully fall into the formlessness of oneness.

When your eyes are so soft that they do not focus or you momentarily do not know what and where you are, there is nothing to prevent glimpses of enlightenment to merge into one bright white light, namely the enlightenment of that which is one, which extracts all thoughts, that you have hold onto in order to appear as someone definitive, and leave them at the edge of what may look like a black hole, so that there is nobody to experience the nothingness of you gracefully falling into the formlessness of that which is one.

You can read more about a black hole in the article The ins and outs of a black hole.

Enlightenment is not an out-of-the-body experience as it is not an experience, but its preliminary stage of bliss and compassion, which is connected to the world via the pineal gland, is an experience that is often perceived to be out-of-the-body.

Enlightenment of that which is one is not an out-of-body experience. It is not an experience at al. But its preliminary stages of bliss and compassion, which in the world may to be connected with the pineal gland, is something that can be experienced as an out-of-body experience.

Most, however, are afraid of loosing their identity, so they settle for glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, which is like a blissful out-of-body experience – presumably linked to the pineal gland, that appears to foster states like that.

If you are not tempted to stop at this state of bliss, but to go where someone definitive cannot go, namely into the enlightenment of that which i one, it is not an out-of-body experience. On the contrary, there is no experience at all, neither consciousness, because to experience or be consciousness about something requires more than one.

If you want to return from the enlightenment of that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one, you must pick up the thought construction, that was left at the edge of a black hole before you entered it, in order to be shaped as someone definitive.

Returning from the enlightenment of that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot know, you have been at the other side of a black hole, because you were not there and there is no other side, since there is no more than that which is one. In other words, the person you appear to be is not enlightened. Yet, due to your vague memories of that which is one, you are to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

It is not possible though for somebody else to know, that you are to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. You will hardly grasp it yourself. But you will for sure grasp, that a world where there seems to be more than one is not real, and that anything appearing there – including the appearance of you as someone definitive – therefore is an illusion.

ac1d3bc0-5bae-4dac-921e-8c1c4d9f64e1Ethereal harmonies
Appearing in a world where there seems to be more than one as a symbol of that which is one, you do not perceive music to be a means to joy but as a means to be reminded of the airy music full of ethereal harmonies floating out of a black hole at the edge of the universe.

»I heard a sound from heaven like the sound of cascading waters and like the rumbling of loud thunder. The sound I heard was also like harpists playing on their harps.« Revelation 14:2, Holman Christian Standard Bible.

Being used to take a ride in the inner world of the senses, that opens up when the outward-facing senses are not fully used to experience a world defined by time and space, you sense that the first sentence of this quote refers to ´Aum´, ´Sohang´ or ´The Word of God´, and that the second one to ethereal music.

»At midnight when not a single sound is heard, close your ears with both hands and do Purak Pranayama. Listen to the sounds in your right ear which are very pleasant. The first sound that you will hear is of a pine bird, the second of a flute, third of a cloud, fourth of a dragon bee, the fifth of a ringing bell and then of a gong of metal. Sounds of trumpet, drum etc. are also heard.

As Alexius has no intellectual knowledge of religious scripts most of the words in the quote from Gherand Samhita are meaningless. But since he hears inner music himself, it is easy to pick up the essence of the quote, namely the bliss of listening to inner music.

Besides these, many other sounds are heard if it is practiced daily. These sounds are Anahata (unproduced) and come on their own accord. Nada is related to light. Light is related to mind, so mind gets itself merged in a sound which is the seat of the Lord. Therefore, practice of Bhramari gives Siddhi of Samadhi (i.e., makes Samadhi possible).

Mind gets eightfold more pleasure in the act of meditation than Japa (repeating God’s name), eightfold more interest in Tapas (penance) than the meditation, and eightfold more interest in music or sound than the Tapas. There is nothing greater than music.« Gherand Samhita, stanzas 77-81. Besides for the word ´Nada´ meaning music Alexius does not know the meaning of all the Hindi words in this quote, but hearing inner music himself – though not so bombastic as described in this quote – he gets the overall meaning of it.

Using noise-cancelling headphones is a great way to close the outer sense of hearing. Alexius personally prefer in-ear headphones, though, as they can also be used when going to bed.

A practical way of closing the outer sense of hearing and open the inner one is to put both thumbs in your ears or simply use a noise-cancelling headphone or an in-ear headphone, and then without focusing or trying to define anything, be nothing but the ethereal harmonies coming to you from what may seem to be far away.

For tuning in, it is best not to go with the vibrations appearing to come from the left ear, as they often are the sounds of a busy mind, but instead follow the harmonies that appear to come from an empty space a bit outside of your right ear. That being said, do not pay too much attention to directions.

Maybe you will not hear ethereal harmonies but the humming symbolised by ´Aum´, ´Sohang´ or ´The Word of God´. If so, follow this glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one.

It could also be that the only thing you ´hear´ is your thoughts. Yet you have no thoughts of your own. That is something the special self wants you to believe so that although they are solely made by the brain, you believe you have created them. Just like you tend to believe a dream is made by you, although you do not have any control over it, except for how to perceive it.

As the special self lives from separation, it cannot survive inclusion, so if there is no attempt to edit the thoughts fabricated by the brain by excluding those that do not fit into the perception of being special and instead include them all as they are, there is nothing to make the self special. Therefore, it is in the basic mode, where it automatically is in sync with the thoughts produced by the brain.

Consequently, they do not disturb you from hearing empty space as eternal harmonies – or, if in touch with one of the other inward-facing senses, experiencing it as light, infinite sweetness or sublime intimacy. That being said, just like even though nothing disturbs you from hearing the sound of the ocean, to notice it, you must want to listen to it.

In hack #3.6 Phasing out the personality by not being exclusive specifically and all over hack #3, Being inclusive and not exclusive you can read more about how inclusiveness undoes the belief in separation. And in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one you can read about the frustration of perceiving yourself as special versus the happiness of perceiving to be a basic self, which is just one second away from glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one

Tasting the sweetness of life helps you not focus on the world of the outward-facing senses so that glimpses of enlightenment from the world of the inner ones become the foundation for perceiving the world of the outward-facing senses. Since this results in not perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference, there is no differentiation between you and the world you experience. Hence there is no doubt, you are everything that you see. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The taste of life
Appearing in the world as a symbol of oneness you are not tasting the most exquisite food to get delicate experiences from that, but to be reminded about the taste of life, which in the world can be compared to the taste from foam of a milkshake with a few drops of honey added to it or to how marshmallows – especially those with a flavour of strawberries – interact with the palate.

»Your lips drip nectar, my bride, honey and milk are under your tongue.« Song of Solomon 4:11.

»A land flowing with milk and honey« Exodus 3:8

»Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never be thirsty, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him as a well of water springing up into everlasting life.« John 4:10-4:14.

To compare a taste to something else is a very individual thing, so you may not compare the inner taste to that of liquorice.

To describe a taste by comparing it to another taste is a very individual thing. In other words, you may not compare the taste of life to a taste of milk and honey with a hint of liquorice.

Even though this taste is called the nectar of life in the old scriptures, you should not expect it to make you younger or inject you with more energy in the world of the outward-facing senses. Anyway, you are better off never to expect more of anything, as that which is you is no different from that which is one, and since it is formlessness and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one. Hence looking for more is an illusion based on the belief that there is more than that which is one.

One way of undoing this belief is to not focus because without it, a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be perceived, and so it does not seem to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. Fortunately, the taste of life is very beneficial in regards to defocusing.

Some Chinese Herb Formulations or teas – for example Spring Dragon Longevity Tea – enhance the taste of life, provided you are already are in touch with it. The same applies to the Ayurvedic teas, that Alexius have tasted or most teas including liquorice.

As already mentioned, the taste of life can be compared to enjoying the transparent taste from the foam of a sweet milkshake. Sometimes, however, it is with a hint of either liquorice, strawberry, or mint, so none of the descriptions of it is definitive. In any case, it is best not to compare the taste of life or other glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one to anything else, as all comparisons are based on definitions from the past and therefore cancels out the ever-present glimpses of enlightenment.

The inner sense of taste not only stops the compulsive focusing on forms but also your cravings for sweets and to experience  something definable. The taste of life is always there and it is free. Neither do you have to meditate or be pure to consume it. All you have to do is to put your tongue behind the uvula. And if you cannot do that, it is also OK, because doing so is just meant to help you deactivating the outer senses and the only thing that really accomplish that, is the intention to do it. Just like even you are at a springboard, you will not dive from it, if that is not your intention of going there.

The inner sense of taste does not only stop the compulsive focusing on something definitive but also your cravings for more, for example more sweets. The taste of life is always there. It is free, and you do not have to meditate or be pure to consume it. All you have to do is to put your tongue behind the uvula and devote yourself to the taste dripping from above. If you cannot get your tongue all the way, it is not a problem, because doing so is just meant to help you deactivating the outward-facing senses and the only thing that really accomplish this, is the intention of doing it.

The taste of life unfolds under the tongue, when it is moved behind the uvula (the skin flap hanging down in the back of the mouth at the entrance to the throat). Placing it there makes you feel like you are not in the world even though you appear to be there, because it cutbacks the need to focus and also the longing for more. As a side effect it diminishes the craving for sweets as well. That is if you devote yourself to it – no techniques will work without devotion. Yet devotion can work without a technique.

To get the tongue behind the uvula you may have to press it backwards for a long time, maybe several months, and finally use a finger to push it the rest of the way, which may make you feel as if you are about to vomit. No worries – it is just a feeling. When you are used to keeping your tongue there, it is easy, and there is no sense of vomiting.

»Khechari Mudra is turning the tongue backwards into the cavity of the cranium and turning the eyes inwards toward the eyebrow center.« Haha-Yoga Pradipika, Chapter 3, stanzas 32-37.

You do not have to literally replicate the technique in above quote, where the taste of life is called Khechari Mudra. Neither do you actually need to be able to make the tongue go all the way behind the uvula. Pushing it as far as possible will do.

The way to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one or glimpses of its facets is not about perfection. Neither is it about how you breath, eat or anything else you appear to do in the world of the outward-facing senses. Yet things like that may be helpful in order to deactivate the outward-facing senses.

But no technique in the world of the outward-facing senses can deactivate them, if that is not the intention of executing the technique. In other words, first step is solely about intention, and if that is to deactivate the outward-facing senses, there is nothing to hinder your trip into the world of the inward-facing senses. Second step is to devote yourself to the amazing journey there.

The above about steps only applies to having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one and not to bidding it welcome in its entirety, as it takes more than one to take any step.

It is probably best to not be active in the world of the outward-facing senses while having visions of light, as the visual glimpses of enlightenment can become so intense that the world of the outward-facing senses hardly is sensed.

When the belief in being in a world where there seems to be more than one is undone, there is nothing to hide that there never was and never will be more than that which is one.

However, the technique for tasting the sweetness of life can be carried out while being active in the world of the outward-facing senses. The same applies to enjoy the ethereal harmonies if you hear them without putting your thumbs in the ears and also hearing or feeling the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises.

This may result in the experience of a world that seems less defined. Not to the extent, though, that you are not able to navigate there. But it probably feels like you do not have to and that you are carried around in a dream with no will of its own.

That is, as long as you do not take the full tour of these glimpses because it ends in the formlessness of oneness, where you no longer appear to be someone in a dream of a world where there seems to be more than one, neither do you appear to be in oneness since that requires more than one.

In other words, you are not someone at all, and there is no memory or consciousness of you ever having been that because it was all make-believe, and the belief is wiped out.

The part of the world of the outer senses you want to experience is not meant to be blurry but in focus, so what you see is definable. It is the other way around with the world of the inner senses,. In other words, the two worlds does in most cases not work well together. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The part of the world of the outward-facing senses that you want to experience is not supposed to be blurry but in focus so that the experience becomes definable. It is the other way around in the world of the inward-facing senses. Hence mixing the two worlds do not work out.

Focus versus defocus
The world of the outward-facing senses needs you constantly concentrate and focus on it as if you are an autonomous creature in control of your own life. In the world of the inward-facing senses, it is the other way around. It reveals itself when there is no effort to focus, concentrate and control.

But since it is also an act of control to continually trying not to focus to see, hear, feel or taste the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, so besides from getting a headache spreading out from the third eye from too much focus, the inward-facing senses are fenced off.

As long as you intend to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is best to multitask between the inner and outward-facing senses, so you can focus when needed in the world of the outward-facing senses and space out in the world of the inner ones when nothing is required of you.

How to make this work between the inner and outer sense Alexius does not know because, through his connection with the empty breath, which functions as an automatic gear shifting between the inner and outward-facing senses, it is automatically taking care of. See the last part of the article about the empty breath.

The belief that there are more than one blocks out that which is one
In a world where there seems to be more than one, the mixing of things may turn out to work well for you. But not in the world of oneness. As it requires more than one, it is not possible to mix anything, so the idea of combining the different facets of the enlightenment of that which is one fence it off.

That being said, if you do not do the taste of life technique for the sake of the taste but for its benefits regarding defocusing, you can do this while being devoted to either seeing, hearing or feeling glimpses of enlightenment.

Seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one, will make the outer senses turn inwards, so it is easier to grasp, there is no more than that which is one.

Seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one will make the outward-facing senses turn inwards, so it is easier to grasp that there is no more than that which is one.

Ways to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one
Can the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one only be undone via the inward-facing senses? No, it can also be undone via the world of the outer ones as described in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life, hack #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive is freedom from being someone definitive, hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality and hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

There might be other hacks other than Alexius´ Duality Hacks that undo this belief. But as Alexius has not tried them, he cannot say if they work. Yet, the hacks based on second-hand knowledge from Buddhism and whatnot are most likely fake – especially if those promoting the hacks have beautiful visions about a hypothetical better future full of love, bliss and happiness because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

In other words, to be blissful, happy or full of love is an illusion, as it requires more than one to be anything at all.

The connection with the empty breath does not unite the outer and the inward-facing senses. Still, it makes them synchronised, which among other things, means that what you used to judge as stressful in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses will not seem stressful when synched with the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses, because of the indifference coming from the empty breath.

Connecting with the empty breath is like going into a driverless car programmed to return to that which is one
The empty breath
´lifts´ you out of the belief in being someone definitive by automatically synchronise the outer and inward-facing senses so that glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one become the basis for interpreting the world of the outward-facing senses.

It is like being transported in a driverless car that is programmed to take you to your favourite aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one, so you carelessly forget to define the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one and they as one bright light, tone, emotion or taste carry the nothingness of you back into the formlessness of oneness.

NOTES ABOUT THE QUOTES
The terminology of yoga and so-called holy scriptures – apart from The New Testament – is unknown to Alexius, so he does not know the scriptures from where the quotes in this article are taken. He found them all by searching the internet.

When everything is included there does not appear to be something outside of you, neither inside of you, as that requires there something to be outside of you. In other words, there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness.

Alexius does not sympathise with Eastern or Western religions. Neither new age philosophy, as they generally appear to be about excluding what is judged to be bad to become what is deemed to be better, purer or higher. Yoga techniques, for example, are often based on meditation or something else where what is not one is excluded. Theoretically speaking, this should leave out everything but the formlessness of oneness. But as formlessness cannot exclude anything, this is not what you get from being exclusive.

NOTES ABOUT WHERE ALEXIUS´ DUALITY HACKS COME FROM

OTHER NOTES:

PMT A reintroduction to the inward-facing senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it

Inner visions of light of anything at all is not the enlightenment of that which is one, as it takes more than one to have a vision. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As it takes more than one to have a vision, no matter how impressive your inner visions of light seems to be, they are not the enlightenment of that which is one but glimpses of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The world of the outward-facing senses is experienced via seeing, hearing, feeling and tasting/smelling it. But if those senses are turned inwards instead, the enlightenment of that which is one is revealed through seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting/smelling it.

And then again, it is not exactly like this because the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be experienced at all since it takes more than one to experience something.

Someone, who believes to be definable, cannot gracefully fall through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one. Yet someone who believes to be definable can learn how to have this belief undone.

Yet bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one is something that can be experienced via seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting/smelling it. This is not the enlightenment of that which is one though but glimpses of it, which come through a hole that sometimes seems to be black and other times full of lucid. See the article The ins and outs of a black hole.

Having visual glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one can be an experience of travelling through lucid worlds with ever-changing flashes of light. When those flashes of light are not perceived to differ from each other, there is no separation to define you as someone definitive anymore.

When you play a game, you may forget where you actually are. One way to remember it is to undo the knowledge of what and where you appear to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As that means there is nobody experiencing anything, there is not someone to fight that the construction of thoughts which seem to have replaced the formlessness of that which is one with someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one is abruptly extracted by an exceptionally bright white light, that the glimpses have turned into without you being aware of it, as none of this is not happening in linear time but in one perpetual present.

In other words, everything you ever believed to be and have is gone without you knowing it or having any memory of having believed to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Hence there is nothing to gracefully fall through the hole that is no more because there is no experience to hide that which always has been and always will be, since it is formless and therefore endless, namely that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be experienced
Most people, however, work against the flow of enlightenment, which is done by defining what there seems to be to see, hear, feel or taste as something similar to past experiences so that the enlightenment of that which is one is fragmented into more than one, wherefore the belief in being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is not undone.

And as the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be bid welcome without having this belief undone for just one moment, you only had glimpses of it, and therefore do not know what it is.

If you for a moment forget what and where you appear to be, there is not someone hiding the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you for a moment forget what and where you appear to be, there is not someone appearing to hide the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As the enlightenment of that which is one is not of a world where there seems to be more than one, someone believing to be there cannot be enlightened. But if you for a moment forget what and where you are you are, there is not a world where there seems to be more than one to hide the enlightenment of that which is one.

Returning from the enlightenment of that which is one as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are not enlightened, because enlightenment is not something definitive. Yet, there are vague memories of the enlightenment of that which is one, so you are to be compared to it.

This, however, would have been the same result if the belief in being someone definitive momentarily had been undone because then there is not someone to know the enlightenment of that which is one. In other words, what you believe to be can never be enlightened. Yet it is possible to momentarily forget what and where you are, so there is nothing for the enlightenment of that which is one to gracefully carry through a hole that is not there into the formlessness of that which is one.

Since what you believe to be, therefore, has not been enlightened, you appear to be the same if going back to the experience of being in a world where there seems to be more than one. However, due to vague memories of that which is one, you do not believe this experience is real. Hence you are to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

A glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one is comparable to a movie trailer, which is just a glimpse of a whole movie, and therefore not to be confused with the whole one.

To round off, as the enlightenment of that which is one has no beginning and end, someone definitive cannot experience it. But glimpses of it – for example travelling through lucid worlds of light – has a beginning and an end. Hence they can be experienced by someone definitive. See also The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it.

If you seem to see an E here, you are using the E, you have made in your mind, to hide all the empty space.

If you seem to see an ´E´ here, you are focusing on seeing something recognisable so that you can hide the empty space by imagining there is something there. The empty space is not the formlessness of that which is one, but when you do not imagine a world defined by time and space to be there, no elements of matter are experienced to hide the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Partial devotion to the inward-facing senses results in glimpses of enlightenment
To experience that you are someone substantial in a world defined by time and space, constant focus on something specific is required for the outward-facing senses to fabricate the depth needed to make the experience appear dimensional. Otherwise, the outer senses cannot build this illusion.

So the more you defocus, the more the definable world of the outward-facing senses is complemented with the abstract world of the inward-facing senses, where you are bid welcome by glimpses of light if you are visual-minded, ethereal music if you are auditory minded, and the taste or feeling of that which is one in case you are emotional minded.*

The purpose of the inward-facing senses and their glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one is to attract you to such an extent that you cannot help yourself but have them undo the belief that it is possible to be someone definitive, even though it means the end of what you believe to be – just like a moth cannot help but to follow its attraction to the flame, even though it is gonna be the end of it.

The idea of mixing something is based on the belief in separation, so do not try to mix glimpses of light with glimpses of ethereal music, for example, as this will imply they are separated. Just welcome whatever glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one that seems to come your way. Never try to hang onto a glimpse or to have it repeated. If it changes into another aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one, go with that.

What you believe to be is a hallucination, that seems to cover the enlightenment of that which is one – also if you believe to be spiritual, because any belief requires more than one.

These glimpses, as already noted, are not the enlightenment of that which is one, as it has no room for someone being conscious of something since that requires more than one. This does not mean that the person you believe to be is replaced by the enlightenment of that which is one, but that whatever you believe to be is an illusion.

The healing of the body caused by partly being devoted to the inward-facing senses is just a side effect, that helps you not to care about physicality and its inevitable end.

The inward-facing senses and the body
Devotion to the inward-facing senses will heal your body if that is not the purpose of it. It may not include genetically caused diseases, though. But as devotion to the inward-facing senses calms the body, a genetically created condition will not seem to generate fear, which otherwise may further damage the body if projected upon it (see hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues).

When, however, the body’s wellbeing is the purpose of devoting yourself to the inward-facing senses, you cannot be attentive to the world of the inward-facing senses since that requires having no specific focus, so the world of the inward-facing senses fades out without you even noticing it. Thus the body is not being nurtured by it.

Total devotion to the inward-facing senses bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one
Complete devotion to the inward-facing senses bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, that right away erases all memories of you being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. As you are not there anymore, there is nobody to know how long time this takes. But most of all, because the enlightenment of that which is one is not a process but one perpetual present.

At first, however, it may seem to be a process, and as long as that is the case, the brain that produced the experiences of you as someone definitive is not dead, so it can be rebooted and again produce these experiences. But since it takes more than one to be anything, they cannot contain the enlightenment of that which is one. So although you are to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, you look like you used to be.

But as soon as the enlightenment of that which is one does not seem to be a process, which in the concept of time happens in is less than a minute, the brain cannot be rebooted, and therefore not produce the experience of you as a substantial being in a tangible world, wherefore there is nothing to hide that which always has been and always will be you, namely the formlessness of oneness. There is, of course, nobody to be aware of this since it takes more than one to be conscious of something.

The appearance of you as someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one, is a fabrication constructed from thoughts, where some are chosen to be included, as if they are that which is you, and others are excluded, as if they are not you but somebody else. By not excluding specific thoughts but including them all, you become everything and you also lose the appearance of being someone specific, because there are no excluded thoughts to define you as someone definitive. In other words, inclusion excludes what is not real, so there is nothing but the formlessness of that which is you. Enlightenment of that which is one does the same, and so do the other ´ways´ suggested in my non teachings. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The appearance of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fabrication of thoughts. The ones you judge to be good are chosen to be included, and the ones regarded as bad ones to be excluded. The excluded ones produce what you consider others to be and what you are not, so if no thoughts are excluded, there is nobody to define you as separate from others. Inclusion, therefore, excludes what is not real, namely separation, so that there is not something to hide there is no more than that which is one. Bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one has the same result, and so does the implementation of the other ´ways´ of coming back to that which is one suggested in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

Is the enlightenment of that which is one required to have the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one undone?
The enlightenment of that which is one can be said to be the last step to the formlessness of oneness. Still, as formlessness is endless, you have never left it, so there is no step back to it, and therefore no need to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one in any one of its aspects or to have glimpses of it*.

Neither do you have to be connected with the empty breath or devote yourself to the inward-facing senses to have the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one undone. It can be undone while enjoying the world of the outward-facing senses. In the below box, there are some suggestions on how to do this:

The more you perceive the apparent differences in the world of the outward-facing senses to not make a difference, the more the outward-facing senses function as a set-off to that which is one (hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness).

The same applies to pretending to be someone definitive (hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation or seeing symbols of life in the world (hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life).

And it also applies to being alone together, which does not mean that you are together with one or more who also are alone, but that you are alone together with your fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one, no matter how many there seem to be around you (hack #7 ´Alone together´ is the key to that which is one).

But you do not even need Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings to have this belief undone. All that is necessary is not remembering what and where you are since that means there is no belief in being someone definitive that appears to hide the formlessness of that which is one.


There is no experience of love without the experience of hate, because you cannot know one without the other. Multitasking allows you to experience both emotions simultaneously, and so hate is as blissful as love. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The reason that so many avoid multitasking is that multitasking leaves them with no time to suppress anger and other feelings, that destroys the perfect image of themselves as somebody at peace, full of love and whatnot.

What they do not know, when keeping specific feelings hidden – hate for example – is that they diminish the experience of their contrasts – in this case love – because you cannot have one without the other.

Least of all do they know that when both sides of a contrast are equally acknowledge, their apparent difference makes no difference. Thus it is just as blissful loving somebody as to hate them. See also Love makes no difference at all.

Be aware though, that to be in the bliss of indifference, instead of the consciousness of being someone definitive, you must be willing to be nobody.

Here the world of the inner senses are about to shift to bright white light, which is gonna extract all the info you have collected in order to appear as somebody and leave it at the edge at a black hole so that there is nobody to fall into the nothingness of that which is one. This is not compatible with appearing in a world, where there seems to be more than one, so if that is what you want, you better make sure the info making up your personality is not extracted or you know where to find it again. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This image could be illustrating the last glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is one before you give up seeing something specific. There is an abrupt shift to the enlightenment of that which is one that extracts all the info you have collected to appear as someone definitive and leave it at the edge of what seems to be a black hole so that nothing is falling through it and gracefully float into the formlessness of that which is one. You do not know how fast this is happening because you are no more and have no conscious of ever having been anybody, because there is nothing but that which is one. This is not compatible with appearing as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, so if that is what you want, you better make sure that the info making up your appearance as someone definitive is not extracted – or that you know how to find it again – which is simply is to go with the flow of fear. And yes, there is also fear in that which is one. No worries. It cannot be experienced there. That is not possible since it would require more than one. It is, however, possible to imagine there is more than one, and going with the fear that this entails, you seem to leave it and instead be part of a world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Multitasking the inner and outward-facing senses
Much devotion to the world of the inward-facing senses may space you out regarding the present moment in the world of the outward-facing senses. Yet, if you do not have to be present there, you just go with the flow of the inward-facing senses, as if the world outside of you stands still.

But if you want to go on appearing as someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is, of course, best to totally focus on the world of the outward-facing senses so that the abstractness of the inner world does not interfere with your plans for having more money, power, love, life, energy and whatnot.

However, should you become tired of the race for more, you multitask between the inner and outward-facing senses, so that being loaded with glimpses of enlightenment in the world of the inward-facing senses makes you indifferent to the constant demand for more in the world of the outward-facing senses.

If you do not want the belief in being someone definitive to be abruptly undone by the enlightenment of that which is one, multitasking between the inner and outward-facing senses could be your approach, as that allows you to have this belief undone in a pleasant pace while having a good time pretending to be what you are not.

Multitasking is said to disturb the brain so that it is harder for it to focus on something specific. That is why it is beneficial in regard to having the belief in being someone definitive undone  – especially the multitasking of the inner and outward-facing senses, which happens all by itself when connected with the empty breath.

When you are multitasking the world of the inner and outward-facing senses with the help of the empty breath thoughts are not considered to be yours, so nobody is going anywhere, even though it may appear so.

The empty breath automatically syncs the outer and the inward-facing senses so that everything feels just okay. Nothing is wrong or missing. This is not the purpose of the empty breath, though. Its purpose is to undo the belief in being definitive, but this is a lot easier not fighting to survive as someone definitive. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath automatically syncs the inner and outward-facing senses
Those not connected with the empty breath are often tempted to skip the part of having the belief in being someone specific undone and instead use their own special blend of the outer and inward-facing senses as the means to fabricate their particular version of paradise.

The purpose of this often is to establish themselves as spiritual helpers. Still, as there only is somebody to help, when you believe in separation, your so-called compassion and help enhance the suffering that this belief entails (see the article Coming from the heart is a denial of that which is one). Besides, there is no paradise without hell since a world where there seems to be more than one can only be experienced through contrasts.

It is common to think, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Yet you do not appear as someone specific in a world where there seem to be more than one to find more, but to see there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

So instead of using the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one to establish an image of yourself as a new messiah full of love and light, use them to expose the frustration coming from the belief in being someone definitive so that its unedited energy can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath.

The moment you have no need give or receive help or support, the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is undone.

As the inward-facing senses operate on very high-frequency, speedy thoughts and feelings seem to rest there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The connection with the empty breath automatically syncs the outer and inward-facing senses. As the latter are operating at an extremely high frequency, the wild speculations in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses do not seem to cause confusion but relaxation. So the apparent differences of the world experienced with the outward-facing senses slowly cease to make a difference. Thus the foundation for the belief in separation fades out. And so there is nobody to imagine that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Following the guidance of the empty breath you are automatically multitasking, because it does not know the concept of focusing on something specific. So when you are do not feel the empty breath multitasking connects you with it.

A perfect moment turns into a state of not-knowing
Having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one is a perfect moment because nothing feels wrong. As there is no sense of anything having a beginning or end, it may last longer than the concept of now, which is just a concept of something in between the past and the future. In other words, the idea of now is based on excluding the past and the future, whereas a perfect moment includes that and everything else.

When differences are not perceived to make a difference, the foundation for the belief in separation is gone. So everything outside of you is inside of you, where is nothing since without an outside, there is no inside. In other words, if you do not return from this state of not-knowing to a world where there seems to be more than one, there is nothing to hide there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Hence it makes no difference if there are thoughts about the past, the future or anything else while having glimpses of enlightenment. Actually, the most distinctive feature of a perfect moment is that the apparent differences of the world are not perceived to make a difference. Not so much because there is no judgment, but because there is nobody to judge anything since you are in a state of not-knowing.

That is why it is not before this state is over that you know when differences are not perceived to make a difference, you are not experienced to be separated, and so there is nobody to judge something as right or wrong.

Since differences are not perceived to make a difference in a state of not-knowing, nobody cares if the bliss of it should differ from one state of not-knowing to another.

Having glimpses of enlightenment, you momentarily do not believe to be someone definitive. Hence you are in a state of not-knowing. This state of bliss** can be induced by all Alexius´ Duality Hacks, except for the enlightenment of that which is one, since that is not a state. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This state of not-knowing is not only induced by glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one but by the application of any other duality hack except for the enlightenment of that which is one, as that is not a state since it takes more than one to be in a state.

Be happy if you cannot overcome the hopelessness that seems to blow you away when not in a state of not-knowing, because when you are blown away a state of not-knowing returns.

But as nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one lasts, nor does a state of not-knowing. Primarily because after 20 minutes, 45 minutes at the most, where the brain has not been kept active by judging differences to make a difference, it falls into a coma.

So if you want to remain as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you must leave the bliss of a perfect moment. But you must also leave it if you do not want to return as someone definitive but bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one because there is no room for bliss or anything else in that which is one.

Being alone together is based on the realisation that the power behind every experience you seem to have is you. Just like every appearance in a dream is both empowered and interpreted by the dreamer. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

Alone together**
Since the apparent differences in what is usually perceived to be a world outside of you are not perceived to make a difference when in a state of not-knowing and as that applies to whatever seems to be inside of what is typically believed to be you, inside and outside is the same – or rather there is no inside and outside or any other contrasts to define you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

You are alone together, having a fantasy about being someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one. But no matter what appears to be happening in that fantasy, you are not in it – just like within the context of this fantasy, a dreamer is not in its dream, although the dream is in the dreamer.**

You cannot know this before you have left a state of not-knowing, and memories start popping up of how blissful it is to not believe you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

There may also be memories of the transition, which can be quite claustrophobic, as there is nobody to project your troubles and sorrows on since there is nothing but the tight unit of you. But as soon as you start feeling the peace that comes from not feeling disturbed by anybody, this unit is not tight anymore. Actually, it is not there at all, because you do not believe to be someone definitive.

When the apparent differences of a world where there seems to be more than one are not perceived to make a difference, you are not separated from what you experience to be a world outside of you. In other words, you are alone together with your experience of a world where there seems to be more than one – and since this is how you imagine having left the formlessness of oneness, you can reverse this and return to that which you never left, since formlessness is endless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As you probably read in the previous part, you got to leave a state of not-knowing pretty soon if you want to remain as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither can you stay in this state, if you do not want to return to the fantasy of being someone definitive but to the formlessness of oneness, as being in any kind of state requires more than one.

Staying true to being alone together** this is not a dilemma, because from this follows, you never have been in a world where there seems to be more than one. On the contrary, like a dreamer, within the context of such a world, you are in your own bed, which, in this context, is a metaphor for that which is one. And since oneness is formless and therefore without beginning and end, you have never left it.

PMT A perfect moment takes you back to the first moment of duality

You and the world is fabricated at the edge of a black hole, which you have imagined to be a way out of that which is one – and to make it appear as if you are right, you divide all the appearances of this fabrication by separating them into good and bad, so that it seems you are in a world, where there is more than that which is one.


What you appear to be, was dreamed up at the edge of a black hole through which you believe to have escaped non-duality. This rebelliousness you continue in a world of duality, where you do not accept that everything comes in pairs of opposites. You fight this basic rule of duality by splitting the constant interaction of opposing components into disconnected elements so that love and hate, for example, do not support but fight each other. This description is, of course, as illusionary as anything else in a world of duality. But since Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings do not claim to be real, reading them may be beneficial in exposing the illusion of duality.

When the feelings judged as wrong are excluded by projecting them onto others or obscure parts of your body, so you appear perfect, there is always something that needs fixing to not seem imperfect.

When everything is included there is no differences and consequently nothing to improve. Nothing is missing. Every moment is the perfect moment.

But if you do not try to avoid the ups and downs of the world by excluding what makes you feel down but instead include down as well as up, then their contrast is cancelled out. Thus the apparent difference between down and up makes no difference. In other words, nothing is wrong or missing. The moment is perfect – also if there still appears to be thoughts and feelings because they are experienced through the echo of that which is one, which is indifferent to the experience of you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The inner senses are not limited by the ideas of time and space, so it is not a problem for them to pick the echo of that which is one coming from the beginning of the world, which also is the end of it.

The humming from the edge of the universe
Depending on your preference in the world, the echo of that which is one is either experienced as a sound, feeling, light or taste coming from the edge of the universe – one at a time though, as they are aspects of that which is one. However, this article is mainly about hearing or feeling it, which is often symbolised by Aum and Sohang.

As what is formless is endless, the formlessness of that which is one is everything, so to be conscious or anything else that requires more than one is an illusion.

When the outward-facing senses are partially closed, the inner ones, which are not limited by time and space, can tune into this vibration from the edge of the universe symbolised by the words Aum and Sohang so that you can hear or feel it. What you hear or feel, though, is not that which is one but a glimpse of it because that which is one cannot be experienced.

That which is one is the absence of attention, awareness, consciousness, love or anything else that requires more than one. In other words, they are make-belive because that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

If the outward-facing senses are entirely closed, there is no world to experience. Hence there is nothing to prevent the flow of the inward-facing senses from erasing all thoughts – or rather the belief that someone is thinking them – so there is not something that appears to hide that which is one. However, this is not the subject of this article. It is written within the apparent realm of a world where there seems to be more than one.

The edge of the universe can be heard, felt, tasted and seen, as if it is in yourself and not far away. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The edge of the universe can be heard, felt, tasted and seen, as if it is not far away but in you.

Feeling or hearing the humming from the edge of the universe, you do not perceive differences to make a difference. There is nothing to separate good and bad or anything else, so everything – though apparent different – have the same value. Every moment is the perfect moment. Nothing is wrong or missing.

Feeling or hearing the humming from the edge of the universe, you do not perceive differences to make a difference. Every moment is the perfect moment when emptied for personal perception by the unpronounceable vibration picked up from the edge of the universe.

You think you have escaped that which is one through an black hole looking a bit like an embryo into a world where there seems to be more than one. But it is a fantasy. It is not possible. There is no black hole, because there is no more than that which is one. Consequently I can only show you a fantasy picture of the black hole, that is imagined to look a bit like an embryo or a horse head. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You think you have escaped that which is one through a black hole into a world where there seems to be more than one. But it is a fantasy. There is no way to escape the formlessness of that which is one because formlessness is endless. Consequently, this image of a black hole that may look like an embryo or a horse head is not real.

In the beginning, every moment was the perfect
A perfect moment can be compared to the first moment of a world where there seems to be more than one. You have just escaped the formlessness of that which is one through a black hole that you imagined seeing at what you judged to be the edge of oneness. Fragments of oneness – or rather selected memories – you brought through the black hole are chaotically floating around until you start organising them into a perfect pattern.

But there is not enough fragments – or memories – to make the pattern perfect. You freak out, and the anger makes them explode into a big bang that expands into the universe in which you spend all your time looking for the missing pieces. You can read more details about this in the articles Duality is a virtual reality on top of non-duality and From non-duality to duality and back.

Truth is that which is one. Consequently there is no truth in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

If you are a factual minded person, you may ask, where are the facts behind the above explanation. There are no facts, but a world where there seems to be more than one is impossible because there is no more than the formlessness of oneness since formlessness is endless. In other words, that which is one is everything and therefore no outside or inside.

Consequently, whatever is experienced in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion – also so-called facts, spirituality, the aforementioned perfect moment, an explanation of the beginning of the world.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The perfect moment is a fairytale
That which is you is no different from that which is one, so it is impossible to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet, it is possible to pretend to be there. Like – in the context of such a world – it is possible to pretend to be someone in a game’s virtual world.

As most have forgotten, that a world where there seems to be more than one is virtual, they believe that what they appear to be is real – and as they think it all started with a big bang, the above explanation about the beginning of the world and a perfect moment is meant to be a fairytale, that reminds you that there is no more than that which is one.

A perfect moment can be used as a way to survive the stress of a world where there seems to be more than one, and/or as a way to have the belief in such a world undone, so there is not something to hide the formlessness of that which is one.

So if this fairytale of a perfect moment seems helpful to you, follow it and go back to the very first moment of the world, where your partially opened inward-facing senses will fill you with glimpses of enlightenment – or if wholly opened, leave your identity at the edge of a black hole, so that nobody gracefully floats through a black hole into that which is one.

But if this fairytale is not your cup of tea, by all means, go for another – for example, hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation – or go for something entirely different.

It is best, though while appearing to be in a world, where there seems to be more than one to follow somebody else´s voice*, as what you consider to be your own is based on the sum of your memories, which means it is the ego talking from the past in an attempt to maintain the status quo by for example saying you should do things in your own pace.

No way, however, is more or less real than another. Yet while believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, it may seem as if there is a way that serves you better than another regarding undoing the belief in being someone definitive. If Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings appear to be such a way, use them to set yourself free, but please do not use them to prove that you are on the right track and others are wrong.

Most belief systems are shared vocabulary for people in search of meaning.

Also, do not try to fit into the terminology of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. They are not a new philosophy or religion in which you can find the meaning of life. On the contrary, they undo the belief that you are someone living in a capsule of time and space. What you believe to be, does not exist because it takes more than one to believe something or exist as someone – and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.


*) It is, of course, only in a world where there seems to be more than one that you can appear to follow somebody else’s voice. Ultimately speaking, there is nothing but the oneness of that which is you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It takes nobody to know where the inner senses are


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The inner and outer senses are nowhere

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

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

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

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

The inner and outer senses are a fantasy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You can read more about the inner and outward-facing senses in hack #6.3 The inward-facing senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

APPENDIX:
Keeping a balance between the inner and outward-facing senses or anything else has nothing to do with spirituality since it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to be in balance. However, in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is beneficial to have the empty breath balance the world of the inner and outward-facing senses, so glimpses of enlightenment from the world of the inward-facing senses become the foundation of how to perceive the world of the outward-facing senses, namely as an illusion.

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

By doing that, you relate to the world of the outward-facing senses like you do to a video game. It is not real. Yet you have fun pretending that it is. This is not to say that spirituality is inside, but that with the outer senses partially closed, it is easier to grasp that a world where there seems to be more than one is an imagination used to hide that spirituality is that which is one, and since it takes more than one to be somewhere, it is nowhere.

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

´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone [draft]

Alexius Jorgensen in the bliss of not believing to be someone

If you want to swim in the bliss of the empty breath, it probably is beneficial to read this intro. But if you are tired of words and want to swim in bliss right now, go to Take-offs into ´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. He did everything as a medium for the projects so his design could highlight their content.

To provide the students with guidelines on how to design, he had to deduct ways of creating from his instinctive way of doing it. He wrote, by the way, two books with basic rules of how to do it and a book on colour theory.

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

The empty breath cannot help us know how come we appear to be substantial beings separated by time and space because this is impossible since oneness is formless and therefore endless. Yet, the empty breath is beneficial in exposing that a world defined by time and space is nothing but a fantasy made from something that is nowhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

How to explain the empty breath?
Regarding passing on guidelines of how to connect with the empty breath and drift in its bliss of emptiness and thus indifferent to the belief in being someone definitive, he is in the same situation as when he started teaching design. He had no professional training to refer to. Likewise, he has no second-hand knowledge, which he can use as a reference to explaining how to connect with the empty breath.

Neither does he know how to explain that what and where we experience to be is an artificial construct, designed by the brain to control and manipulate us into believing that this experience is genuine and not fabricated by the brain from nothing.

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

However, in this fantasy, he knows how to step away from it and be in the state of not-knowing* that the empty breath, like the other duality hacks, entails. Once, in that state, he watched a movie (You Disappear), which quoted the latest scientific explorations about the brain, that might help realise everything appearing to be something is nothing.

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

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

These experiences of an external world the brain claim to process from the frequencies it receives via the sensory system, but this explanation, just like the experiences it fabricates, is a smokescreen to cover up, that it is all made up from nothing. A flower, therefore, is just as unreal as a plastic simulation of it.

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

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

Science states, the world we seem to feel and see consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and as immaterial as a dream, is what we perceive to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

Whether an experience seems direct or comes from the heart, physical or spiritual, it has taken the brain a second to generate it. Hence what you believe to be experiencing now happened one second ago. And then again, 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 to feel you exist.

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

In the connectedness with the empty breath, the apparent difference between the opposing sides of the contrasts making up the experience of duality is cancelled out. Not in the sense that you do not register them anymore, but that you do not perceive them to make a difference. Thus there are no diversity to attest to you being someone in a world of duality. Consequently, you are in the bliss of nothing.*

The bliss of nothing
Though science seems to know that the experience of something is made from nothing and therefore is make-believe, they go on exploring something as it is real. Here, however, we explore how to see, there is not something at all and, therefore, not someone seeing it.

The experiences the brain fabricates of a tangible world only seems real if the self that the brain also has created perceives them as something. If not, they are exposed as nothing, likewise the self. Thus, to perceive the present experience as nothing, you go back to the empty void from where the brain has twisted it into your everyday experience of something.

Since that is where the empty breath resides, and it took the brain one second to fabricate your current experience of something, it only takes one second to connect with the empty breath and be in a state of not-knowing and thus the bliss of nothing.* Doing that does not require you to meditate or something else in particular. All that is needed is the willingness to forget what and where you appear to be. Read more about that in the below paragraph The only requirement is willingness.

If the brain is not kept active in a feedback loop, with thoughts that seems to confirm there is more than involved, for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, it falls into a coma. Thus you cannot be in the bliss of nothing* very long at a time, if you want to be able to return to a world of something as if you are someone there.  See also the hack 20 minutes, 45 at most in Extra Duality Hacks.

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

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

Since you cannot appear to be somewhere, nor in a state of not-knowing,* without the experience of being someone, there is still someone to experience the world of something made up by the brain when in a state of not-knowing*. But the experience of you as someone is so vague that there is not enough consciousness to perceive the apparently different experiences of something to make a difference. Consequently, there is no perception of separation to hide, that although the fantasy of something is a colourful experience, it is pale in comparison with the bliss of nothing.*

Although you probably forget 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 outward-facing senses.

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

The inner and outward-facing senses
When we are not connected with the empty breath, and therefore not in the blissful state of not-knowing* but in the happiness of the basic self or the nervousness of the special self, the empty breath is still with us, provided we, just once, have connected with it, because it does not know of separation. Read about the basic and special self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

Thus the empty breath always functions as an automatic gear change between the outer and inward-facing senses to make the abstractness in the world of the inward-facing senses the base from where the world of the outward-facing senses is perceived, so it does not appear to consist of something but nothing when in a state of not-knowing and not in that state the experiences of something are perceived as ´it is what it is.´ Consequently, none of the experiences is something special, including you as someone, so you are not happy or sad but happy-sad. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

As any experience is an illusion, it includes the experience of the empty breath. But as this illusion unveils the bliss of nothing,* which, contrary to the experince of something, is not experinced to end, you eventually stop asking for more. Hence the belief, that it is possible to be an have more than that which is one is undone.

These experiences, of course, only makes sense as long as you believe you are someone definitive in the world of the outward-facing senses, but assuming that is like believing in Santa Claus.

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

In the flow of not believing to be someone

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

The synchronisation of the inner and outward-facing senses
To take the edge out of the stress we feel in the world of the outward-facing 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. Thus the speedy and restless energy that appears to cause stress in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses does not seem stressful.

It is not thoughts as such, that prevents us from going with the flow of nothing, but the desire to use them to accomplishing something specific.

That being said, you might not want his synchronisation because although it results in indifference to stress, it may not help you to get what you have stressed to achieve. This is why most like to avoid the flow of the empty breath and endure the hassle of obtaining what they desire.

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.

However, if they get it, they do not feel satisfied but disappointed because the need for more is still there. This, they try to tone down through meditation, yoga or other techniques that seem to hide that all they care about is to become and have more at the expense of anybody (see No manifestation is real).

You can read a more detailed explanation of the inner and outward-facing senses in the following article What and where are the inward and outward-facing senses or in hack #6.3 The inward-facing senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.

The more the connectedness with the empty breath cancels out the contrasts of duality – for example happiness and sadness – the more you are indifferent to what and where you appear to be in a world of duality.

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 actually death because life is formless and thus without a beginning and end, so anything that does not last 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 imagine being someone you are not in the virtual world of a video game. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You do not connect with the empty breath at your own pace
While Alexius was writing about the empty breath, he deducted ways to ignite it from his instinctive way of doing it. For example, using the unedited energy of the stress arising from the belief in being someone definitive ignites a take-off into the empty breath. Read more about that in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

There is nothing to know, because that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. So although there seem to be lots to know, when appearing to be 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.

That is why Alexius´ Enlightened NonTeachings is not about learning something new but to unlearn everything. This you can do by reading all of them – or flip through them – until they automatically apply one or more of Alexius´ Duality Hacks and brings you in a state of not-knowing, in which there is nobody to perceive the person fabricated by the brain as real. Hence there is nothing but the bliss of being indifferent to any kind of belief.

That being said, when it comes to the practical aspects of appearing to be someone definitive, you should not avoid learning and knowing something, or being and having more. It is self-evident, however, when connected with the empty breath. Its indifference to differences makes it impossible to choose anything yourself. Thus you just go with the flow of doing something exciting. In other words, you are are having the belief in being someone undone, while enjoing it to its fullest.

If this is what you want, it is not important whether you read hack #4, Being in a state of not-knowing from beginning to end or just browse it. What is essential is to not focus on anything in particular, nor to spend time processing or integrating it, as that enhances the belief in being someone. Instead, unlearn everything so you contain nothing and, as an empty vessel, can serve the empty breath. See also the hack No Focus = No World Defined By Time And Space in Extra Duality Hacks.

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

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, for example, 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. However, if you do not relate to something but nothing, there is no relation and therefore no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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. In other words, 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.

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

The only requirement is a willingness to not be someone definitive
Leaving your comfort zone of knowing what and where you are is not done by fighting or transforming your learned behaviour, but by being willing to undo the belief that makes it possible to appear as if you are conditioned by something, 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 make-believe. That you accept when you acknowledge, you are not willing to undo the belief in being someone definitive because the acknowledgement confirms what you appear to be is make-believe.

Since nothing matters when connected with the empty breath, you are free to have fun.

Having the belief in being someone definitive undone does not mean that you as someone seems to be gone, reborn or awaken. Like within the context of this belief, the appearance of Santa Claus does not stop when you grow up. It is the belief that he is real that stops. However, there is one difference between the undoing of the belief in Santa Claus and you being someone definitive. When the belief in the latter is undone, or in the process of being it, you are not disappointed because now you are free to enjoy being someone definitive in a fantasy about Santa Claus, having a family and whatnot.

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

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.

How does it feel
The connection with the empty breath can be experienced as described by Alexius in the articles What does ´the empty breath´ feel like?, and To be nobody and yet somebody. But do not count on it. His experience of it is not static. And even if it were, you and Alexius may experience it in each your own way – just like when drinking the same cup of tea, for example. Besides, the main attribute of the empty breath is indifference, which is hardly an experience.

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

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 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.

What you believe in being does not exist
Should you wonder, who chooses to believe, that the image fabricated by the brain of someone definitive is you, or who has programmed the brain to produce this image, or who is connecting with the empty breath, or who is wondering about this, the answer is nobody, because the experience of being somebody, whether in a so-called spiritual or physical sense, is, within this experience, comparable to being in a dream. There is nobody in it. Thus the empty breath and the other duality hacks are as dreamlike as anything else in the experience of being someone definitive, no matter what and where that seems to be.

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

There are many 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. Like within the context of such a world, a dreamer is not in its 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 world of something is finished because you never left it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But contrary to the illusions of the many belief systems in the world, Alexius´ Duality Hacks do not attempt to transform or make the world better but expose that everything experienced 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 that you are someone definitive separated from others but that it is something you pretend to be.

And as what you pretend to be, you are not, that which is you does not end when the brain cannot produce the experience of you as someone anymore. Until then, it is much fun pretending to be what and where you are not.

Pretending to be someone definitive undoes the belief in being it, because what you pretend to be you are not. Read about this in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

APPENDIX:
Since Alexius is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one, he perceives every experience as nothing. Thus the distinction he makes between a state of not knowing and the experience of being someone definitive can be shaped by that. In other words, there might be a slight mix up in the description of the bliss of nothing* and its after-effect, which comes from having had the slate wiped clean, so you return from a state of not-knowing in the default mode of the basic self, and, therefore, automatically is synced with the brain and thus in the happiness of something (read more about that here).

However, most of the explanations of how to connect with the empty breath are not geared towards the basic but the special self, as that is the most common way of being in the world of the outward-facing senses. Fortunately, the stress that comes from keeping together the image of being special can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, provided you do not try to deal with the stress yourself.

On the other hand, the basic self does not need the unedited energy of stress to connect with the empty breath. It easily becomes so laid-back that it does not perceive feeling fulfilled as better than depressed, neither being right to be better than wrong. These or any other feelings are not perceived as something specific. Hence there is nothing to hide the bliss of emptiness.

This does not mean that feelings of anger or love, for example, does not pop up but that no feeling is perceived to make a difference. Thus they all reveal the bliss of nothing* when the basic self is so laid-back that its basic perception is ´dunno what it is

Read about perceiving everything as ´dunno what it is´  in ´I know what it is´ versus ´It is what it is´ versus ´Dunno what it is. Check out about the basic and special self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one, and the after-effect of a state of not-knowing in the article The bliss of nothing.


*) You can read much more about a state of not-knowing in Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath.


NOTE: This article is the first one of hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be [draft]

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

The empty breath is not part of the experiences of you being someone substantial in a tangible world, which the brain fabricates by twisting nothing into something (read more about that here). This is because the nothingness of the empty breath has not been twisted into something by the brain. That does not mean the empty breath is spiritual but that it remains in the nothingness from where the brain creates a world of something. Thus connecting with the empty breath, going to that which is spiritual, namely the formlessness of oneness, is a journey without distance.

The only reason we believe the experiences created by the brain are real and not fantasy is that they seem to confirm we are somebody and not nobody. Hence it is only the desire to be somebody, that seems to disguise that we are nothing processed by the brain into something.

Since it has taken the brain one second to fabricate the experience of what you believe to be and read right now, and it has made it from out of nothing, there was not something one second ago, and since that is where the empty breath resides, you connect with it by not perceiving the present experience as something which takes you back one second in time to where there is nothing because the brain has still not twisted it into the current experience of something.

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

Science states, the world we seem to feel and see consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and as immaterial as a dream, is what we perceive to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space. See the articles Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and Free to float in the void of ´the empty breath´.

The brain, however, falls apart after 20 minutes, 45 at most (read more about that here) without someone confirming the experiences it fabricates to be something. So if you want to be able to return to the experience fabricated by the brain of you as someone in a world defined by time and space, you must leave this state of not-knowing before the brain falls into a coma. This you do by confirming you are separated from others, for example by sending love and healing to them. Read more about that here.

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

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

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

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

Also, be aware that the description of the empty breath in that article is written by someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. This means, that just like the concepts of the world in a game like Monopoly are acknowledged but not believed to be real, the experience of a tangible world in empty space is acknowledged but not perceived to be substantial because there is nothing else than the formlessness of oneness. Thus it is best to perceive the explanations in the next article of where the empty breath as metaphors for nowhere.


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

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

None of those, though, are outside of you as in this image, which rather reflects the idea the special self has of the empty breath, namely that it is something it can control and, therefore, exploit. Read more about the special self here.

But no matter what kind of self you believe to be, you do not exist and thus have nothing to control or let go off, because that which is one is formless and therefore endless and it takes more than one to exist somewhere. This applies to the empty breath, as well but since it does not believe to anywhere or have any intention of taking you somewhere, it is your way back to the formlessness of oneness.

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

How to ignite a take-off into ´the empty breath´ (draft)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

However, the ways described in this article and the other ones in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing are generally not geared for the basic but special self. That is because most are drawn in by the excitement they imagine to get from being special, rather than the pure happiness, they automatically receive when being basic, because the latter will not make them essential in a world where being special, bitchy and having something extraordinary is the standard. Read more these two kinds of self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

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

So although being special brings about stress and being basic results in relaxation, almost everybody does their best to establish themselves as somebody special in a mundane or so-called spiritual way. Thus hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing is mostly about using stress and speedy thoughts as a take-off into the empty breath. In regard to the basic self, it is not the stress of being somebody but the relaxation of being nobody, that ignites a take-off into the empty breath.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And this happiness does not come from what you experience to be and have but from being in sync with the brain (see hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one), there is no need to perceive any experiences as something special. Thus they seem so unimportant, that, every now and then, there does not appear to be something to hide the bliss of nothing. In other words, you automatically and very quickly go back and forth between a state of not-knowing and the conscious experience of being someone. See To be nobody and yet somebody.

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

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

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

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

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

You undo the belief in duality by enjoying it [draft]

You do not get satisfaction from something specific in the duality flow but from the constant interaction between opposites. Anything perceived as good is just as bad because everything comes in opposites in a world of duality. That is why you do not get the duality flow if you try to hold onto something specific. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from having read hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

PART 1:
You need to be true to the world of duality to undo the belief that you are there. Hence you should not go for singular but twofold experiences. If you try to stay in an unparalleled state of mind, you are unaccompanied, and since you can only depart from non-duality by envisioning there is more than one, this is also the way you return. Therefore, if you insist on being singular, you remain in duality.

In the duality flow, it is not a matter of what you feel but that you are aware of it, so it can open up and reveal its counterpart and that those opposites are interacting, for example, love and hate. Any minute though, hatred may show another opposite of itself, for example kindness. Then this twofoldness replaces the former one until kindness reveals it can also be complemented with selfishness. And on it goes until you prefer having an inner dialogue in which you can make sure you always are correct and thus above others.

This continues till you do not give a shit about being superior or simply are fed up with the stream of thoughts that you know will fade out in the duality flow. Thus you choose to not hide your present emotion behind an inner dialogue where you seem to know better but feel it without explanation. Thus it can be perceived as ´it is what it is,´ which reveals it is not singular but twofold, wherefore you are back in the duality flow.

The Earth goes around itself and the sun on its predestined path every day and those on it follow along regardless of their psychological issues because it is solely a physical matter. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If something seems to have gone wrong, you may panic and start an inner dialogue about how to become better. But you follow the Earth on a predestined ride around the sun. See hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. Hence there is nothing you can change.

Therefore, instead of judging yourself for having failed and thus feeling inferior, go with the duality flow. When you do that, failure is complemented by success, wherefore both seem equally entertaining.

Please be aware that you should not look for your present emotion in the body. It does not contain anything psychological because it is purely physical. You could also say that something physical is visible, whereas something psychological is invisible, and you cannot mix visibility with invisibility.

That said, if you have projected mental or emotional issues onto the body in the assumption that it can integrate them, you better start off by bringing them back to the non-substantial psychological sphere where they were conceived. Only there they gently open up and reveal they are not singular but twofold, wherefore there is no specific psychological issue to bother you.

However, since you initially tried to combine a specific psychological issue with a physical one, the latter remains and should be taken care of physically. Maybe with the help of a healthcare professional.

Bringing back your emotional issues, from where you have imagined dumping them in the body to the non-substantial psychological sphere, is straightforward. Since having dropped them in the body is a fantasy, you simply reverse it. However, having done that, you do not know where they are because the psychological sphere is not visible.

Yet, like the clothes are close to the body and follows it wherever it goes, you can count on the psychological zone is close to the body and moves along with it. But also like clothes and the body are two different realities that do not mix, so is the psychological and physical reality.

If we remain within the clothes metaphor, you could say the psychological sphere provides the body with a sense of warmth. That is, if the psychological zone is not filled with continuous inner dialogue consisting of comments like those on social media that makes you feel as if you exist. But this is like wearing somebody else´s dirty clothes. It is very unpleasant for the body, whereas it feels at home when there is nothing but the duality flow is in the psychological sphere.

Suffering and other singular feelings come from the idea that psychological issues can be integrated with the body to improve or make it sick. Read more about that here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

As already said, you replace the inner dialogue with the duality flow by perceiving your present feeling – or the amount you can get in touch with through the noise from your internal conversation – as ´it is what it is.´ But if you stop insisting on being superior by showing off as you know what is going on, the inner dialogue runs out of steam and reveals the duality flow.

The first time this happened for Alexius was during a very gentle massage. But it was not before much later he put words to it and realised, perceiving your present feeling in the psychological sphere as ´it is what it is´ reveals it is not singular but twofold. And being in sync with duality, you have no need to seek out thoughts for inner dialogue attesting to you being better.

Unfortunately, it has not always been clarified in the former articles that emotions must be faced where they are conceived, namely in the psychological zone, to be revealed as twofold. But this mistake will be corrected someday.

Also, it may not always be clear that since the psychological sphere is abstract, it is nowhere specifically. Hence it is also where you experience the body to be, but not as a part of it. To not confuse the psychological sphere with the body, it is best to access it somewhere outside of the body.

INTERLUDE:
Having the counterpart of a singular feeling revealed is not an intellectual process. First, you perceive the specific feeling as ´it is what it is.´ Second, in a state of expectation, calling for nothing specific, you patiently wait a few seconds. Third, your singular feeling opens up, and its counterpart fills its space.

The transition is so gentle that you feel mellow. And it is as automatic as breathing in and out. One automatically leads to the other. Also, like breathing, you may forget about it. Yet you do not forget how well-grounded and beloved you feel in the interplay between opposites.

Should you not catch the interaction between the opposites in one of the many duality pairs, you can always go for the breath. But remember, regarding the duality flow, it is not about doing something precisely, like following the breath, but being true to your experience of breathing in and then quietly wait for it to be replaced by breathing out.

Being in the duality flow is a bit like listening to the waves of the ocean. It relaxes you. However, if you insist on doing things your way, you soon feel restless because something needs to be adjusted to make it look like things are going your way. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
At first, you may get to the duality flow through the perception, ´it is what it is,´ but, after a while, you can recall it just like that. You simply choose to enjoy the interaction of the opposing element in a duality pair instead of dividing them into separate entities assumed to be at odds. In other words, you choose to feel the abundance of the duality flow and not the scarcity of separation.

However, it took Alexius some time to not pick one of the opposite sides in a duality pair but to go with their interaction in which, like breathing in and out, they support each other. But unlike the polarity of breathing in and out, most duality pairs are quickly replaced by another. Fortunately, that is not a problem. The duality flow comes from the constant movement between the opposite sides in any duality pair. And that always makes you feel complete.

The duality flow reminds Alexius of the physical sensation he remembers from his childhood when he tried drinking coca-cola. It was like his body turned into bubbes. His experience of the duality flow can also be described as his body is an ocean full of waves gracefully flowing nowhere, or like drops of warm water gently touching the body. Feelings, though, are personal, so your experience of the duality flow´s completeness may differ from Alexius´. Nevertheless, you know you feel the duality flow when you keep smiling for no particular reason.

That being said, the duality flow is new to Alexius. It came to him late in the process of writing Alexius´ Duality Hacks. He discovered it when he wrote a little article in 2020 that over the following months evolved into the eight pieces of hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

At the beginning of writing about this hack, he did not experience the duality flow described above. Instead, he either remembered the hellish or heavenly feeling that comes from a single-minded perception. See You undo the belief in duality by enjoying it, Part 1. But you probably get to the duality flow much faster because the way has been paved by Alexius.

When you start going with the duality flow, it probably is the revelation that no experience is singular that blows your mind. For example, if you feel miserable, it is a relief to experience this feeling contains its counterpart, pleasure. Later on, it is not the revelation that your reaction to something always is twofold that blows you away, but that they constantly interact with each other.

Calling this interaction the duality flow is not Alexius´ idea. That was suggested by the AI proofreading his writings. It has, by the way, not found anything similar on the web to the duality flow. Actually, most who talk about non-duality seem to deny duality, although this refusal of the belief in duality makes it impossible to undo it.

First, you think you dump your unwanted feelings in the body. Second, you tighten up the body to hide the feelings imagined to be stored there. Third, you interpret the tightened body as proof of having concealed your unwanted feelings there. Fourth, you forget all about it.

The idea of singleness does not apply to non–duality because for this concept to be experienced, there must be more than one, and there is no more than that which is one in non-duality. Nor does it apply to a world of duality, as everything in it is twofold. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
None of the opposing elements in the duality flow remains for long. This can be compared to a seesaw. It changes rapidly and repeatedly from one position, situation, or condition to another and back again. So if you try holding onto the top by avoiding going down, what you get is fake because the top needs the button to define it – just like there is nothing to describe breathing in if you do not breathe out.

To walk, you take a step with one leg and then the other. If you exclude one of the legs, you cannot walk. Likewise, if you exclude hate from love, you do not hit the road of duality. Hence you do not get the togetherness of twofoldness but the loneliness of singleness. This may feel like a non-concrete pain in the body, even though it does not come from there but from the mental sphere. There you hold yourself spellbound by the idea that twofoldness can be separated into independent items, and hate, therefore, can be separated from love.

This you achieve by projecting your hatred onto a part of the body that you dislike. Then you lure yourself into believing you have gotten rid of hate. Finally, you render yourself unconscious of what you have done, so you can see yourself as nothing but love. But emotions are abstract, and bodies are substantial, so assuming you can dump feelings in flesh, bones, and blood is absurd. Besides, feelings are not singular but twofold. So you cannot have hatred without love and vice versa.

In other words, you cannot remove hatred from your awareness by dumping it in your body. Therefore, what you assume to disturb you in the body is not there but in the psychological sphere. However, it has been there all the time because psychological issues do not blend with the body.

Thus what you believe to feel in the body, you instead sense in the psychological sphere, which is nowhere in specific since it is abstract. So if you feel it anywhere other than in the body, you are in the abstractness of the psychological sphere. There you perceive what you feel as ´it is what it is.´ Doing that, as you know from having read the above, the pressure of something specific is off because your anxiety is complemented by its counterpart, contentment.

Every time you go with the interaction in the duality pairs, breathing in and out becomes so dynamic that more pairs shows up.

Nobody has lasting feelings unless they suppress them by dumping them in the body, so they seem to become substantial. But what they seem to get by doing this is not natural. Feelings are fleeting because they reside in the psychological zone, which is like air. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When not upholding the idea of singularity and acknowledging the psychological and physical realm are not combinable, you understand that vaguely felt discomfort in the body can be a psychological problem, you have lured yourself into feeling as something physical in the body.

To resume, no trip down memory lane is needed to free the body from the burdens you have placed upon it. Nor do you need to understand what you attempted to hide in the body and why you did it. Instead, you simply acknowledge the present discomfort in the shoulder, for example, so you can feel it in the psychological sphere where your reaction to it can be perceived as ´it is what it is.´ After that, since your response is revealed to be dual, a specific feeling of discomfort cannot be upheld in the shoulders.

As mentioned above, this does not necessarily mean all the pain in the shoulders is gone. You probably have chosen to project your unwanted feelings onto them because they already were in pain, making it easier to imagine psychological distress is hidden there. So if the shoulders still ache when this fantasy is undone, the pain should be dealt with physically, perhaps with the help of fascia rollers from Blackroll.

APPENDIX:
In this article, we have talked about how you get rid of a feeling judged as wrong by dumping it in the body. But good feelings are also dropped in the body. In that case, the body is not used to hide them but make them appear more substantial and lasting. Read more about that in You must play the game of duality to have it undone.

Notes on the duality flow [draft]

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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


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

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

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

Notes on perceptions

When no experiences are judged as something, there is nothing to be excited about. Hence there is no expectation of something to prevent the bliss of nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from having read hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you perceive your reaction to any experience as ´it is what it is,´ you are in sync with the brain’s script. But if you start to analyse your response and conclude, ´I know what it is,´ you are out of sync with the script because you do not know what it is. Read about the brain’s script in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no meaning to be found in your experiences, nor are they yours. This is an illusion created by the brain, which generates all experiences to make the self it has fabricated believe that it sees, hears, feels and tastes something outside of itself. It is easy to deceive the self into believing it experiences something outside of itself because if not, there is nothing to confirm its existence.

The experiences you believe in having will continue as scripted by the brain, regardless of how you perceive them. But since the brain injects you with shots of happiness for supporting it with a perception aligned with its script, it is in your own best interest to be in sync with the brain as long as you partake in its game of being somebody.

If you do not mind being nobody, you perceive the experiences it produces as ´dunno what it is.´ Hence you enter into a state of not-knowing and its bliss of nothing. This does not mean that the brain’s script changes but that you are indifferent to it because there is no need to be confirmed as somebody.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The more you perceive an experience as ´it is what it is,´ the more carefree you feel. Perhaps so much that your perception automatically changes to ´dunno what it is,´ which may bring about glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one. Read here how to see, hear, feel or taste glimpses of enlightenment.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since non-duality is formless and therefore without beginning and end, it is everything. However, this does not mean it includes the experience of duality. On the contrary, formlessness cannot be experienced, so everything experienced is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You do not have to use the exact same words for the perceptions mentioned in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end to participate in the game of duality, deny it, take a break, or totally forget it. Instead of saying ´it is what it is,´ you could say ´shit happens,´ or ´so what.´. As long as the essence is alike, they work the same. That being said, the perception ´I know what it is´ only works in the sense that it makes you feel special. You are still what and where the brain wants you to be, which you do not try to change when you go with the perception, ´it is what it is

Choosing the perception ´dunno what it is,´ you leave the brain´s script behind. Not in a sense that you are not what and where the brain has planned, but you do not perceive your experience of it as something since you are in the bliss of nothing.

Read more about the perceptions it is what it is, I know what it is and dunno what it is in hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

To uphold the perception ´I know what it is,´ you got to suppress your actual response to an experience. The two other perceptions do not involve denial. On the contrary, your response to something cannot be perceived as ´it is what it is´ or ´dunno what it is´ if you deny it. The perception ´I know what it is´ never works as intended because you are not all-seeing and knowing.

And the two other perceptions do not work if your intention is to get something over and done with. However, this can be solved by perceiving the response to your plan as ´it is what it is.´ That flushes out any idea of achieving something specific. If your response is perceived as ´dunno what it is,´ there is not something to accomplish because you are in the bliss of nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Feeling wrong is our own decision because our emotions are shaped by how we perceive our reaction to an experience. But if you decide not to perceive your reaction as specific, the brain automatically takes over and perceives it as ´it is what it is.´ And since the brain operates in pairs, your reaction is twofold. Therefore, as sadness is paired with happiness, you are never sad but happy/sad. This polarity, like any other, makes you feel complete.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Do not hide your reaction to something by making a story in which you are unimpressed or detached. Instead, feel your response, so you can decide what it means and perceive that as ´it is what is.´ This expands the interpretation of your reaction, so it is not limited to you being angry, for example, but complemented with being calm. Since twofoldness makes you feel fulfilled, you have no urge to uphold a single-minded image of yourself. Thus, sooner or later, you forget what and where you are, which is the invitation the enlightenment of that which is one has been waiting for. Read more about that in hack #6-7.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you believe you suffer because of something, you are mistaken. You suffer because you have perceived your reaction to something, so it makes you feel bad. This is immediately corrected when you perceive feeling bad as ´it is what it is

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

Should you, instead, make the perception ´I know what it is,´ when your cat dies and what you believe to know is that this makes you sad, you must exclude gladness to prove you are only sad. But without gladness, sadness cannot be defined. Therefore, what you believe in knowing that you feel is a thought up idea of sadness. Thus you do not feel sad but fake.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If noisy music from the neighbour makes you feel troubled, it is not because of the music but your specific perception of your reaction to it. Instead, if your response is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ it turns out to be twofold. Hence you feel disturbed as well as stimulated. This interchange of opposites is the duality flow. Read more about that in the following articles.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The stories you make in which you appear to know everything sooner or later clash with the actual experiences of the world where you seem to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Just like the twofoldness of breathing in and out makes you feel alive, you feel fulfilled when psychological pairs of duality, such as love and hate, dynamically interact with each other. However, this interaction takes away the sense of control. Thus most separate hate from love by projecting a romanticised version of love on somebody and hatred on somebody else or a vulnerable part of their own body. Insisting on this division, they miss the joy of togetherness because it does not come from a singular but dualistic feeling.

They get the joy of closeness when what they have decided to be the meaning of hatred is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ because that undo the separation of love and hate. For example, if they have classified hate as weakness, this perception reveals it is paired with strength. Since this polarity, like any other, brings about the relaxation of duality, they may not notice this change. But, for sure, they observe there is no need to hold onto a pretty image of love outside of themselves by hiding hatred in your body.

This sets others free from your romanticised projections of love. And your body stops defending itself against your hateful attitude towards it. Thus the body parts you kept tight to hide feelings of hatred there are healed by the dynamic interaction of love and hate. 

If those parts are in pain from physical illness as well, they must be attended to materially. Perhaps with the help of a health care professional. However, when the body is not occupied by fending off your psychological issues, it is often capable of being restored by the biological system governed by the brain. That is why physical illness starts with withdrawing the non-physical matters you have projecting onto it. Read more about psychosomatic disorders in hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Everything in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is fictitious. There is no similarity to reality because that is non-dual, and it takes more than one to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. However, since they do not claim to be real, you are exposed as unreal when reading them. Hence, the more you do that, the less there is someone to judge these words to differs from the reader, wherefore there is no duality to hide reality is non-dual.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you feel sad and do not experience the gladness inside it, you have chosen to perceive your reaction to something as ´I know what it is instead of ´it is what it is.´ Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you perceive a singular opinion of yours as ´it is what it is,´ it reveals itself to be twofold. And since you appear to be in a world of duality, and everything in such a world operates in pairs, you feel complete. If this is perceived to be good enough, every moment is the perfect moment. Nothing is wrong or missing. Read more about that in hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

From this follows that if you do not feel complete, you have been messing with the pairs of duality by perceiving their parts as definitive. Since that is your own choice, you can undo it and feel complete. Read more about choosing in hack #2.2 Choosing or not. Having done that a few times, you have established every moment is the perfect moment regardless of what and where you appear to be. In other words, if your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, you do not wait for a better moment. This one is perfect as it is.

Since that means you never wait for something better, the continuation of duality, eventually, comes to an end. Thus duality does not appear to be hiding, there never was or will be anything but non-duality since it is formless and therefore endless.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A feeling can only be known when explained. And since that makes it mental, you are benumbed when your perception is ´I know what it isTo make up for that, you enhance this perception with stories of a better future.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To perceive anything as ´I know what it is,´ is as crazy as thinking you know where you are in a dream. You are nowhere but in your bed.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self always makes an explanation that seems to confirm the perception ´I know what it is.´ This enhances its conditioned way of viewing the world and the fear of being wrong. But if you do not try to explain anything, you never need to correct or deny something to maintain you are right. ´It is what it is,´ so you have nothing to worry about.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not identify yourself as definitive but relative to the present moment, there is no need to make specific opinions to confirm you are someone definitive. Thus every moment is the perfect moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since your internal comments about the world in most cases are singular and thus cut off from their complementary part, you appear to judge yourself and others as incomplete. Hence you get the urge to improve something to feel complete.

Yet it is nobody but yourself who has made the single-minded comments that seem to establish what you and others can do. Fortunately, these rules do not need to be identified to set yourself and others free from your confinement. Instead, you simply perceive your present opinion about something, for example what you read, as ´it is what it is.´ That reveals your comment is not singular but twofold, which, ln a world of duality, is completeness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a video game, everything is predetermined. No matter what you choose to do, the subsequent events have already been arranged, likewise, in a world of duality. You can choose between different stories going on inside your head. Regardless of which one you settle for, the next step is decided in advance by the brain. It cannot be changed. You can, however, choose how to perceive your reaction to that step.

When you choose to perceive your response as ´it is what it is,´ it is experienced to be two-fold, and since you are in a world of duality, the result is satisfaction. But if you perceive your reaction as ´I know what it is,´ it seems singular and, therefore, incompatible with duality. Hence you do not feel satisfied but frustrated by duality. Unfortunately, most think the solution is to get rid of duality. Yet, it is the other way around.

Playing the game of duality, you confirm non-duality because it is formless and therefore endless, so it must be the reason for the experience of duality. And also, the reason, duality is not real. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Not storing thoughts and feelings in the body or projecting them onto the world, they are experienced to be in you and yet nowhere in particular. Therefore, as you do not seem to be defined by them, you are not stuck as someone definitive in a world of duality. This does not mean you need to bring back all the thoughts and feelings you have disassociated yourself from. The willingness to do so is sufficient. This is set forth by perceiving your reaction to any present thought or feeling as ´it is what it is

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Every moment is the perfect moment when your perception includes every thought and feeling, regardless of the past, the future or whatnot. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end uses the perceptions ´I know what it is´ vs ´it is what it is´ vs ´dunno what it is.´ HACK #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive is freedom from being someone definitive uses the perception ´it is included.´ It is similar to ´it is what it is´ in the sense that it is based on the experience of duality. But since all parts of the present moment are perceived as ´it is included,´ their apparent differences do not seem to make a difference. Thus every moment is the perfect moment.

Since ´dunno what it is´ ignores duality, it leads to a state of not-knowing. But ignoring duality, you do not last as someone in a world of duality for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most. So if you want to go on as if you are someone, better go with the duality flow, which is revealed by the perception ´it is what it is.´

A perfect moment, brought about by the perception ´it is included,´ is, like ´it is what it is,´ based on the acknowledgement of duality. Hence, contrary to a state of not-knowing, it lasts as long as it takes. In other words, a perfect moment is not measured by time but by inclusiveness. This makes you feel relieved. On the other hand, you feel vitalised by the twofoldness in the duality flow. See In the duality flow, you do not feel something specific. After all, it is the duality flow.

However, if you read hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment, there is nothing about the perception ´it is included.´ Alexius did not use this approach to a perfect moment when he originally wrote about it. But he will most likely update the hack by the end of 2021.


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

Notes on feelings

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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