The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real

_IGP7193-Edit

You think you have chosen to see what you look at now, but it is fragments of what you saw one second ago pieced together by the brain into what it wants you to experience as if you are viewing it now. Read more about that herePhoto © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Alexius has not invented the headline. It is a rewrite of a movie title. Nor is the rest of the article thought up by him. He cannot think. Thoughts are passing by like frequencies are passing by a radio, which picks up and transmits those it is tuned into. In this article, Alexius is tuned into the following:

They meditate, chant, drink, take drugs or something else to alter their perception of the present moment so they can avoid being in touch with the feelings it seems to bring about. But every time they do something to get rid of an emotion, sadness for example, on a psychological level, they enhance the sense of not being happy. Thus what you consider to be wrong in yourself or the world you increase, the more you try to avoid or correct it.

  • Trying to purify yourself, you enhance feeling condemned.
  • Pursuing freedom, you strengthen the door to your prison.
  • Eating to get healthy, your feeling of being wrong is fed.
  • On a quest for enlightenment, darkness is tightened.
  • Trying to unite, separation is increased.
  • Looking for love, your self-hatred is ratified.
  • Seeking god, you feel more sinful.
  • Meditating to be at peace, your frustrations increase.
  • Searching for a higher self, you confirm you are not good enough.
  • Wanting to be perfect, imperfect is confirmed

This is not to say that you should stop suppressing your feelings. By all means, go ahead and do it – or stop it. It does not matter. Whatever you seem to think, feel or do is a fantasy because what and where you believe to be is fabricated by the brain.

You think you are reading this article now, but actually, you are reading an edited version of what you read one second ago, as the brain has spent one second on filtering and interpreting it in such a way, so you seem to read something that is coherent with the experiences it has made for you in the past.

If reading that makes you want to know what this article really says, and you decide to see the unfiltered and therefore authentic version of it, you are still caught in the game of the brain, namely that what you do and say makes a difference. It is like thinking, you can make a difference in the world of Super Mario. It is not possible. Everything is fixed. But you are free to change your perception of it.

So if the way the brain filters your experience is perceived to be upsetting, you change your perception into something that makes you feel good. Believing that what and where you appear to be is real, you may consider this as to cheat. But when you know that every experience is an illusion fabricated by the brain, having them is like watching the show of a magician. You do not want to break the magic spell by looking for authenticity but to perceive the show in a way that entertains you. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

There´s no pink flower in this pic. The color pink does not exist within the reality of the world, so if you see pink, you have constructed the color yourself.

Without flaws, the structure of the universe would be perfect and, therefore, not appear to be manifested as something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
All colours in a light beam, except lime green, have a complementary colour, so if you believe to see pink, which theoretically speaking is the complementary colour of lime green, in the pictures here you are wrong. Pink does not exist. That is why it is said to be an extra-spectral colour in Wikipedia. If you want more factual info about pink, also called fuchsia and magenta, follow this link.

The reason you perceive the colour pink, although it is not there, is that every time you, theoretically speaking, should see it as a complementary colour to lime green, you mix blue and red to create pink so you can fill the gap in the spectrum of a light beam with it.

But if not for gaps, a world where there seems to be more than one would, according to science, not appear there. It was a perceived gap in the pattern, made up by the particles from the big bang, that made it possible for the inconsistent structure to unfold into a world with gaps between everything. In other words, if a gap had not been perceived in the way the particles from the big bang gathered together, there would have been no imperfection to trigger the fantasy of separation.

Perfection, therefore, is the end of separation. But this is not achieved by filling the gaps with love or other childish dreams of togetherness, as the special self would do, since doing so is based on the belief in separation (read more about that here), because without it, there would be nobody to love.

The world is designed, so it appears to be a puzzle, where you are rewarded when you get the pieces right. But the puzzle is incomplete. A piece is missing. No problem, if you perceive it as it is, but if not, an endless quest for something to fill the gap is set in motion.

But perceiving it as it is, gaps neither contribute to imperfection or perfection but to a world where they seem to separate everything and thus to keep together a world where there seems to be more than one. Perceiving it like this, which the basic self does, gaps are what makes it entertaining to experience such a world. You can read about the basic and special self in hack #4.2 The basic self versus the special one.

What you think you see, is precisely that. It is an image fabricated by the brain, which has lots of scripts to automatically manipulate the rays of light reaching the eyes into a picture of the world, that looks like you expect it to do. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Once upon a time, a king liked to order people to be beheaded in the blind spot, we all have when we look at something from a specific angle. It is not a gap that we notice because we are conditioned to fill it with something from our memory. The king, therefore, kept seeing the beheaded ones with the head until he changed his viewing angle and they had no head, which he found very amusing.

It is not only the gaps, as mentioned above, we are conditioned to fill with what we expect to see. This whole page that you think you see on a digital media is a gap that has been filled with something because digital info cannot be seen. Check out Eyes do not see, they translate.

The same applies to the rest of the world that you believe to see. It is as virtual as this page, and so is the brain that seems to fill it with something real.

There are probably lots of gaps in this article which has been filled with something that makes sense to you.

PART 3:
After the big bang particles grouped together in an almost perfect pattern. There were a few gaps, though. Had it turned out to be a perfect pattern, it would have been static and not unfolded into the universe. It is the gaps that keep the universe expanding.

In other words, everything in the world is based on imperfection and would cease to appear, if not for imperfection. Is it not beautiful, that it is so clear to see, everything that which is not one is imperfect and only seems to exist, because of incompletion.

That which is one and formless cannot manifest a world defined by time and space, but if you imagine oneness to be incomplete, forms seem to appear around the gaps, that seems to last for a while, and the world of duality appears. But as all appearances in the world are based on time and space, they are bound to have an end.

If you do not identify with appearances, but enjoy them while they last, you will not end, when the appearance of your body stops.

This is not to say that you will continue as a soul. It is just a subtle appearance invented by those identifying with the appearance called a person in order to extend this identification when the appearance of a personality in a body is gone. Soul, god or whatever concept of the world dies with the body, as all concepts of the world are fabricated in the brain of the body. What is left, when the body ends, is that which is one.

Oneness is not a new appearance to experience for a while, as it is one eternal now – and so there is no way to explain it in an imperfect world, where appearances seem to come and go in linear time. Neither is there a way to go there. All doing comes from incompletion, so that which is incomplete, namely the world of duality, must be undone for that which is one to be uncovered.

To undo the world is to not own thoughts, as gaps are maintained by thoughts.

To warn about something unreal not being real, you serve the unreal, because the warning will make that which you warn about to appear as if it is real. Why else warn about it?

PART 4
The world of duality can be compared to one of those thriving fansites on the internet, where the community is devoted to continuing the story of a TV show, that has been cancelled.

One moment in the world of non-duality, the idea of a world of duality was exploited. It started with a big bang from where time was projected forward in a linear way. There seemed to be no going back in this world. If ice cubes melt in water, they cannot be extracted from it and made into the same ice cubes again. The light radiating from a lamb or the sun only goes forward. It never returns.

At least this is how it seemed in the world of duality, that non-duality was exploring, but as non-duality is one and one has no time, it is not possible neither to go forward or backward in two different movements. It has to be the same movement, so the expansion of the world of duality was contracted, the very same moment it was expanded.

There are no differences in non-duality, so the metaphor of this article should not be taken too literally. It is just a way to illustrate, that the world is long time gone, and that what seems to be there are bits and pieces or loops of it, that are played again and again in an interactive movie on the internet, so the cancelled show called the world of duality seems to be going on.

The idea of a world of duality was cancelled because It is not possible only to go forward. Least of all it is not possible to only know the past and not the future as in oneness everything is simultaneously.

In other words: The idea of a world was cancelled the very moment it was conceived. However, parts of oneness were so excited by the idea that they made a fan site, where they fabricated an ongoing story of the cancelled world of duality.

They made the fansite in such a way, so that followers of it could participate in the virtual story and built their own version of it – just like the fan sites in the context of the world are fabricating follow-up stories to for example cancelled TV show, that followers participate in and discuss as if they are real. Or just like some joins in groups and make a roleplay based for example on the second world war, that in linear time ended a long time ago.

There is no harm in doing a roleplay. It is not real, but if you think it is, it may seem harmful. No worries. Thinking so is just a mistake, that can be corrected.

This add from the internet shows, that the advertising industry knows how to make something unreal appear as if it will make your appearance as a person in the world more real.

APPENDIX:
On the news, Alexius recently read about a psychologist who says, »it is dangerous young people use their smartphone for communicating with others instead of meeting physically. It is a problem for the brain because it is not made to deal with meeting others in a virtual world.«

He had no scientific data to prove his claim. Actually, he had nothing to back up his statement. And it is doubtful there is, because it is actually the same organ in the brain, that process both so-called reality and imagined or virtual reality. To the brain, it is all the same. Whether you call it virtual reality or just reality, it is a fabrication made in the brain.

The contacts you seem to have physically are no different from the connections you seem to have virtually. In both cases, the world is in the eye of the beholder. It is you, who decides how to perceive the world, and it is you, who fabricate a response to how you have chosen to perceive it. It is a construction of thoughts which purpose is to feel the world, so you believe you are there amongst other separated entities, but even though contacts in the world appear to be between at least two separated entities, there is ultimately only one, namely you, no matter in what context the communication seems to occur.

The purpose of the world is to disguise that and make it appear as if it is real, that there is more than one. The psychologist, who came with the statement at the beginning of this article, plays his part well in fulfilling this purpose, as the bullshit he is saying with such seriousness helps to reinforce, that the physical world is real, although it is just as virtual as the online world.

Everything that appears to be more than one is an illusion

tree-leaf-gif

PART 1:
Life is the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness has no dimension everything dimensional is lifeless. Well, it does is not there at all, because what is formless is endless, so there is no more than that which is one. In other words, if you are experiencing a dimensional world where there seems to be more than one, you are hallucinating.

The oneness of life can be compared to the one line in the above animation, and a world defined by time and space to the tree, that it seems to create.

But there is no tree. It is an illusion. If you look closer, you will see, everything in the tree are fragments of one line, that are added together in such a way, that they appear to be different and not just the same line.

ch08_04-660x313

That everything appearing not to be one is an illusion does not mean, that you should look at everything a world defined by time and space as one. As long as you yourself appear to be what you are not, namely someone who differs from others in a world defined by time and space, it would be an illusion to look at such a world as it is the formlessness of that which is one.

A world defined by time and space is a world of separation and since you appear to be there, you have chosen to be separated. Yet this choice confirms the oneness it denies because without it you could not separate from it, so everything that appears to be separated from that which is one is a symbol of it.

If you want to undo, what is not one, you acknowledge the separation, you seem to be part of, but instead of relating to everything as it differs from each other you relate to everything as different symbols of the same, namely that which is one. The more you perceive what seems separated from that which is one as symbols of it, the more you are having the belief in being separated from that which is one undone.

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings also suggest hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation, as a remedy to have what is not one undone. The more you pretend to be someone definitive instead of believing to be one, the more this belief is undone, because what you pretend to be you are not.

Some think, they can escape the sense of separation and be in a mix of the world and something spiritual by hugging a so-called spiritual teacher, by chanting, giving unconditional love or similar childish ideas. The idea is in itself a contradiction, as spirit is formless and the world is form. One exclude the other. Besides adding two things together does not make one, and it is only in the world of separation, that it seems two things can be merged. There is nothing to merge in oneness.

Some think they can escape the pain of separation by fusing a world defined by time and space with what they consider to be spiritual by hugging a so-called spiritual teacher, or by chanting, giving unconditional love or similar spaced out ideas. As spirit is formless and the world is nothing but form, they cannot be fused. One excludes the other. Besides adding two things together does not make them one. It is only in the world of separation, it seems that two things can be merged. There is nothing to merge in the formlessness of oneness, as there is no more than that which is one.

Whatever you choose makes no difference, as long as the purpose is to undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Unfortunately, most so-called spiritual ways do not have this purpose. Instead, the purpose most often is to make it bearable appearing to be and have more than that which is one, so it seems you can uphold your belief in separation and still be at peace. Such ways are not undoing the belief in what is not one but enhancing it in order to hide that which is one behind gibberish talk of bliss, stillness and other things that requires more than one to experience.

How many black dots can you count?
See the notes below the article for the answer.

PART 2:
That which is life is flat compared to a world defined by time and space, as you can read in the previous article One is one, and one is all there is. As flatness has no dimensions life is so small that it has no form. And as formlessness is endless, there is no more than life. Hence a world defined by time and space is not real, but just like a dream an abstraction of that which is. This illusion is only possible because of reality.

seperator2When used in an article this is a symbol of separation. But it has no power to separate anything, unless you project that onto it.

In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings the words non-duality, life, reality, one perpetual present, spirit, one and oneness, in general, are different words for the same, namely that which is formless and has no beginning and end. In other words, that which is. Those words are limited – they have a beginning and an end like everything else in the world – so they cannot really tell what non-duality, life, reality, one perpetual present, spirit, one and oneness is, but they can point towards it.

1806400lhjy1qql2liy2hg

The bigger it is the more you believe it must be real, but it is the other way around. That which is real, namely life, has no size at all.

In a world defined by time and space most are looking for something bigger and/or better, but what the above words symbolise is neither bigger or better. It is that which is formless, and therefore not in a world defined by time and space, which therefore is lifeless, so if you seem to see such a world, you must be dreaming.

after-watching-a-scary-movie_1140There only seems to be life in the illusionary world of a movie, because it appears to have an effect on someone. You are someone, that have chosen to be an effect of an illusion.

A dream only appears to be there because of the dreamer. Yet the dream is not the dreamer. Likewise, the world only seems to be there because of life, though the world is not that which is life.

The movie you are watching, while wearing 3-D glasses, is not in 3-D. It is a trick. The movie is actually flat. And the world, that you seem to see in 3D from day-to-day, is not dimensional. Even physically speaking it is not so. It is a fabrication made up by the brain.

Ultimately speaking you do not see the world at all, because only that which is one is real, and it takes more than one to see something, so everything that can be seen is not real. In other words, neither you or the world is real. It is a trick. All there is, is one perpetual present.

Be aware, that the above explanations are metaphors used to explain, what cannot be explained. The world is not a dream, but to be compared to a dream. If the world was a dream, there would be someone dreaming about it, and no one is dreaming it. The same applies to the movie metaphor. The world is not a movie, but to be compared to a movie.

Pure-LovePART 3:
Once upon a time Alexius often went for a cup of coffee and to chill out in a restaurant that seemed to fit into the image, he had fabricated of a cosy place. One day, however, he hated the very same things, he used to love the place for.

A relationship can be a bit the same. The exact things that you originally felt attracted to in another person may one day start to irritate you. The heart cannot be trusted. It is only loyal until it sees something better. Then it starts hating what it used to love and wants to replace it with something better or purer. The heart is flimsy and so is the whole experience of being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. It is not founded on reality but on how you think reality should be – and such a foundation is not sound.

There is no world. It is a deception.

There is no world. It is a deception.

It is the brain, that fabricate the images, you seem to ´see´. Actually, the brain can produce perfect images of what seems to be a realistic world out there, even when your eyes are closed. In other words, you are deceived by the brain – but only because you want to.

In every moment since you were born, you have seen the world upside down. That is the way, the reflections of light reaching the eyes, are received. And not before this upside-down image has been corrected by the brain into the collectively agreed image of the world, do you ´see´ the world in the way we all have agreed upon it should look.

eyewk-2ab

This correction goes on all the time along together with so many other corrections. For instance, you do not consider the earth to be flat, although it certainly is experienced like that when you look into the horizon.

»Our eyes are constantly lying to us. If you place a dark filter in front of one eye, your eye will perceive flat objects as having depth, which is known as the Pulfrich effect.« From an article about virtual reality in Macworld.

To make long short: Every experience – no matter if you call it direct or whatever – is a deception, that needs to be corrected. The experience of a substantial world that is produced in the brain with the help of the outer senses is a lie because there is nothing but empty space.

If you look for a deeper understanding or to dig deeper into the matter of something, you are enhancing the belief in a world defined by time and space and therefore fencing off the formlessness of life, since formlessness is flat as can be.

Fortunately, all experiences are corrected in one fell swoop, when the belief that you are a someone definitive is undone because then there is nobody to experience anything.

Fear is just a four letter word

Feelings confirm you as a living being within a capsule of time and space. It is fearful though to be stuck in a capsule, and if you also fear leaving it, you will look for lasting happiness there, but never find it, as time and space is an illusion built on the idea, there must be more than that which is formless and non-tangible.

Feelings confirm you to be alive in a capsule of time and space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Sometimes the weather is rainy and at other times sunny. Though thoughts of rain may seem heavier than those of sunshine, all kinds of thoughts are fleeting, so the apparent heaviness of specific thoughts will not remain. That is if you have no need to feel the world.

If you want to experience yourself as a real person in a real world, you need to feel it, so in this context, heavy thoughts are preferable – especially if they are justified by something.

By concluding that the thoughts, you seemed to have while it was raining, was caused by the rain, you project them onto something perceived as a substance, and that rubs off on the thoughts regarding the rain. They seem to become a substance you can feel – and feeling the rain, you know the world has done something to you. Hence the conclusion seems to be that you and the world must be real.

Although the feeling that is produced when the body is touched, is nothing but a construction of thoughts compiled in the brain, you believe this proves the body to be real and hence that you exist as someone definitive.

Whatever thoughts are passing by regarding the rain, if you use them to justify something in relation to the rain, they will turn into feelings, and they will be painful in one way or the other.

Thoughts that are passing by regarding the rain turn into something you interpret as feelings if you, for example, fall on a slippery road or simply just imagine it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To make the feeling of being someone who is getting wet from rain even more substantial, you may search your memory for a similar event. Let us say, you remember how you stumbled and broke your leg one rainy day in the past. The thoughts of anger that passed by that day, you did not like, so you excluded them from what you experienced to be you by justifying the authorities who had not put up a warning sign about the slippery road. Read more about excluding thoughts and feelings by defending them with the world in hack #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive.

The conversion of thoughts into feelings
Remembering the essence of this past event, namely that you are a victim of sources outside of yourself, will help you to justify your thoughts in the present with something outside of you that seems to be substantial, so that thoughts about it turn into a more tangible form. And as the past feeling of anger was justified by the authorities, whom you blamed for having caused your broken leg, the present emotion is not felt but rather conceptualised by judging it to be something unpleasant caused by somebody else.

Being a victim of bad things outside of yourself, you can define yourself as good and others as bad. Some do it the other way around, but that does not matter. What matters is, that you are defined as someone specific because then you are someone definitive in a real world, that can be felt like a substantial body and feeling it seems to confirm, your existence, although it is nothing but a construction of thoughts. This also applies also to feelings of love and whatnot.

To make long short, in the context of the above story of a broken leg you have stored feelings of sadness in your leg, and you have a short fuse regarding authorities, whom you blame for this. So because of how you have chosen to perceive the past, even a light shower or a mild reprimand may trigger the old feelings stored in your legs. It hurts, but it is also comforting, as feelings confirm you are alive.

Feeling the world may sometimes seem so intense and real, that you look for ways to lessen feelings you do not like with alcohol, meditation, prayer, chanting, food, television, shopping and whatnot.

The purpose, however, is still to feel that you exist, and in this you can never succeed, because it takes more than one to exist and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Your identification depends on feelings. Without them, you do not seem to exist, so even if you consult a healer, you do not want to be healed, because without feelings you cannot experience yourself to be someone definitive. You only want the feelings of discomfort to hurt less or cause fewer problems. See also the article That which is faster than the speed of light.

More about the substance of feelings in hack #8.3 Feelings are thoughts constructed to appear as if they are tangible.

The deconstruction of thoughts
No healing can help you as long as you want to remain a person in the world – and as long as you seem to be in the world, you want to be a person. That is why you appear to be there. Fortunately, there are ways to hack this where you can have your cake and eat it too.

Some suggest forgiveness as a way to deal with the world. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings have several other hacks to deal with the world and at the same time undo the belief in it, for example pretending to be someone definitive in the world instead of believing to be a person there (hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive) – or to perceive everything as symbols as that which is life (hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life).

Anyway, out of an illusion is an illusion, so whatever way out of it that seems beneficial to you can be used to undo this illusion. Best to follow a way though, of one who knows, it is an illusion, since you are not going anywhere, as that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to go somewhere. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Thoughts are fleeting, so to think you are someone definitive is not painful, but to project this thought onto a body in order to feel as if you exist is very painful, because feelings have an end, and so you know what you appear is gonna end.

These ways make it more comfortable to appear as if you are someone definitive, while the thought system behind the belief that it is possible to be someone at all is being undone. None of those ways, though are the right way, because there is no way. If there were, the world would be real and not an illusion, so while you appear to be in this illusion, it makes no difference what way you choose or if you any.

Although fear is not comfortable, it will always makes you feel as if you are alive. But it is someone who has no life, who needs to feel it. That which is life cannot be felt, because there is nothing else than that, and so there is no way to feel it. No worries. That which is life is content by being everything.

To perceive everything as symbols of that which is life ((hack #2.1-2 To see symbols of life in the world and Everything experienced is a symbol of life) is assumable the fastest way. But then again, time is an illusion.

There is nothing to learn in the world, because just like in a dream you are not there.

It is hack is so easy to implement because forgetting to do it is just another symbol of that which is life, so you do not have to be a good student. A bad student is also a symbol of that which is life. You do not even need a teacher because there is nothing to learn or accomplish.

You do need to follow something that is not perceived to be of your own and in your own speed because only what is not real has something of its own.

APPENDIX:
Love is not something we are born with. It is a state of mind that we have learned to fabricate by bringing flowers or whatever we imagine is perceived as love. But fear is what we are born with because it is frightening to appear as if you are someone definitive in a capsule of time and space.

The idea of love, however, is an enhancement of fear, because, for love to appear, there needs to be more than one, and when there is more than one there is separation, which is scaring. The same applies to be spiritual – or being something at all.

A world where there seems to be more than one is an abstraction of that which is one, and as that which is you is not an abstraction but that which is one, you are not in such a world.

That which is one is not in a world where there seems to be more than one
There is no spiritual journey in a world where there seems to be more than one, even though such a world can only be experienced because of spirituality – just like that even though your electronic media is what makes it possible to read this, it is not in what you read. Actually, it appears to be hidden by this article like that which is one appears to be hidden by your experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

The experience of such a world is based on the imagination, that it is possible to separate oneness into bits and pieces defined by time and space. What needs to be imagined though is not real, so the imagination of a world encapsulated by time and space is dismissed the moment it is conceived.

In other words: There is no solution to fear because there is no definable world and never was. The moment you accept that, you do not know of fear as something you feel. This applies to love or any other feeling as well. This is not something you choose to accept, because choosing is based on the idea that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Neither is it something you let happen, as that is based on the belief in being someone definitive.

When you just do not give a shit and could not care less about what and where you appear to be there, the world does not seem to have a hold on you anymore. Well as it does not exist, it never had. It is you who hold onto your idea of a world encapsulated by time and space. Just like it is you who identify yourself with the world of a movie. But the world in the movie does not exist, and what does not exist cannot empower you – unless you take part in it, as if it is real.

Meditation is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self

Whether your eyes are open or not, whatever you experience is a symbol of that which is life. If that is not what you see, meditation will not change that. On the contrary, it will confirm the belief that there are good and bad things to experience.

There is only a need to relax through meditation and whatnot because you always are on the way to a better moment than this one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
Traditional eastern meditation seems to be about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas the western meditation founded on Christianity wants to fill it with ideas of god. The mind, however, is not a fact but make-believe. So both the experience of having no or little thoughts or only thoughts of god is a self-deception.

To think that you can stop or add specific thoughts is an assumption based on the belief that you are someone definitive. If you did not believe that thoughts would not appear to come from somebody but nobody. Hence there would be no reason to meditate. 

Who but those perceiving themselves to be dirty, needs to meditate to be purified.

That meditation will purify, change or transform you is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self (read more about the rogue consciousness of the self here). It promises you, that thoughts, at least the disturbing ones, will disappear when you meditate so that there is nothing to prevent you from being at peace. Still, most have the opposite experience, namely that they experience more thoughts when they start to meditate. Should they dare to complain about it to their teacher, they are told it is part of the healing process.

But there is nothing to heal than the sick belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher does not have something, you do not have yourself. You do not need help from anybody. All what is needed is that which makes it possible to experience a the world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is one, and since it is formless and therefore endless, you have nothing but that.

What to conclude? Not much really, maybe to say that thoughts have no power unless you seek out particular ones that seem to prove you are someone definitive because doing so you become a victim of them. Meditation does not change that. On the contrary. Mediation enhances the belief that you are someone definitive because the reason you meditate is to fix the problems coming from that belief. So if anything should be stopped, it is the belief that you are someone definitive.

Since that which is you is the formlessness of that which is one, being centred, balanced or anything else that requires a shape is an illusion.

To make long short, what you believe to be is nothing because it requires more than one to be something and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. As oneness, therefore, is all-inclusive and meditation is exclusive, to meditate is a denial of that which is one.

Meditating to make thoughts and feelings go away confirms the belief that they are something, whereas experiencing them as they are, reveals they are nothing because the experience does not last.

The belief in an illusion is undone when you take a closer look at it. Hence you are not gonna have the belief in being some definitive undone with eyes closed but wide open. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not denying that which is one does not require you to get rid of thoughts and feelings via meditation. On the contrary. Instead of rejecting something you judge to be disturbing, hatred for example, you include it by completely being it. Since hate is defined by its contrast, love, you cannot be hateful without acknowledging love. Thus it is also included.

And since a contrast cancels out itself when both sides meet (read more about that here), the feeling perceived to be disturbing is gone. As it, therefore, cannot define you, you become less defined, the more you include. Inevitable you enter in a state of not-knowing. Read more about the bliss of that in hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

Whether you feel glad, sad or something else, it does not last long when you do not try to avoid it by anylising it, for example, but totally feel it. Hence no feeling seems dangerous but can be enjoed the moment it last.

You may have suppressed some thoughts and feelings so much that it seems impossible to include them by experiencing them as they are. In that case. Do not distract yourself from the discomfort, the suppression has caused somewhere in the body by looking for explanations but simply experience it as it is. This may seem unbearable but if you do not try to stop or change it, the experience fades away because it cannot be defined when totally included. This also includes the way you defined the thoughts and feelings in regards to who or what you once suppressed. Consequently, you are set free from your own imprisonment.

Read about not being exclusive but inclusive in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss. In hack #4.3 To be a basic self is to be good enough you can read about not defining what you feel, so you are free to feel good.

Thoughts only seem disturbing when you believe they are yours. This you do because they apparently can be used to prove, that you are what you believe to be. But if there is no need to be something, in particular, you do not need thoughts to prove anything. As they, therefore, are of no interest to you, there is no need to meditate to get rid of them.

APPENDIX:
Those into meditation would be better off switching to SSRIs or beta-blockers and use the time saved to explore the world where they appear to be. That would honour their choice in believing to be there. Hence they are able to correct it.

If you meditate to find peace inside yourself, you believe there is a difference between inside and outside. Hence you confirm that which seems to hide peace, namely separation.

The correction does not come from having insights, being at peace, deeper or something else that is founded on the belief in being someone definitive, but from being nothing. That is the correction.

This does not mean you cannot have a house, for example, but that it is not perceived to be yours, therefore, do not attest to you as somebody. It is just something you pretend to be. Read more about that hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.
