PMT Those looking for peace are full of shit

_IGP1815-Edit-Edit-2

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Get physical!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In those cases – unless you are in a situation that needs physical presence – go with the flow and have your mind blown. So blown, that it does not know what is up or down, in or out or past or future leaving, so that there is nobody to think you are this and that. This is a perfect moment. It could also be an ignition of the empty breath, which you can read about in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

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

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

NOTES:

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

Positive thinking is bullshit

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

PART 1
If you edit the perception of your experiences in order to hold onto a special image you have created of yourself, negative as well as positive thoughts and feelings tend to get sticky. The negative ones, after some time, bring about a constant notion of rejection and the positive ones of approval. Consequently, you avoid what you assume is going to make you feel rejected and look for something to enhance positive feelings of acceptance.

The latter most do by following a belief system that promises to make the world better a better place. But whether you become a socialist or yogi, positivity needs its buddy, negativity, to function – just like an electrical wire needs the positive pole as much as the negative one to operate.

Fortunately, feelings do not stay very long if you do not edit the perception of your experiences into something that seems to confirm you are a socialist or yogi, for example. So when thoughts and feelings pop up, they do not remain long enough to establish themselves.

Being in sync with your experiences as they are and not as they should be, therefore, feels like taking a ride in a rollercoaster. You get the polarity of going up and down, but it happens so fast that the fear of going down and the thrill of going up is forgotten right away. What is left is the feeling that you have after binge-watching your favourite TV show, namely that you are blown out. This is so overwhelming that you, eventually, forget to ask for more. Thus the belief that there is more than that which is one is undone.

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

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


When you do not care about what and where you appear to be, there is no need to perceive experiences as something that attest to you being someone definitive. Thus there is nothing that seems to hide that which cannot be experienced, namely the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The wish for more, for example money, power, transformation and love, is the cause of suffering because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, as it requires more than one to realise something, everything realised is fake.

PART 2
Those who assume they suffer from a psychosomatic disorder have projected their undesirable feelings, like sexual lust, power strivings, greed, envy and anger, onto vulnerable parts of the body, in the same way, some project offensive feelings onto the world.

But emotions are abstract so they cannot be hidden in something substantial. The projection of feelings on something, therefore, only conceals them from your awareness. Nevertheless, most believe their problems are gone when they are out of sight. Just like an ostrich, according to myth, believes danger disappears when it buries its head in the sand.

This myth, however, is not true. If an ostrich buries its heads in the sand it dies from lack of air. And you die from the lack of collaboration between positivity and negativity if you hide the latter from yourself with a head-in-the-sand approach because, in a world of duality, everything operates in pairs. Like in a wire, it is the combination of the positive and negative pole that results in electricity.

Since the basis of duality is polarity, it is obstructed when you reject negativity. And since the belief in duality cannot be undone if it is altered, you must bring back negativity in yourself, so you can acknowledge the natural flow between negativity and positivity. Doing that, as described in The YOU finger and the three ME fingers, you feel relieved years before even touching that state of mind through meditation.

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

PART 3
Although there are lots of books and courses about how to realise or transform the self, there is no evidence of anybody having done that. The reason is simple. The self is not a fact but a belief. The change of the self, therefore, is nothing but a shift of conviction.

This change is sometimes called awakening. But since it has a beginning, it also has an end. And when it ends, you cannot use the excitement you felt at the beginning to suppress the suffering, which comes from the assumption that you are someone definitive. Hence you again try to change into something believed to be better. But as every belief is accompanied by doubt, you screw it up yourself.

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

When you try to exclude negativity, darkness, anger or whatever do-gooders judge as bad and, therefore, see as obstacles to be better, you destroy the foundation of duality because it is made by dividing everything into pairs like good and bad, positive and negative, up and down, love and hate, and so on. But since it takes more than one to destroy something, you also enhance the belief in duality.

Since there is no duality without polarity, this ambivalence is solved when you entirely include everything judged as bad because then it cannot define goodness, which, therefore, cannot explain evil. Read more about that in hack #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive is freedom from being someone definitive. In other words, not being exclusive but inclusive, the foundation for duality disappears and so does what you believe in being, as, in non-duality, there is nothing definable because that requires more than one.

PART 4
You do not have to do something to be spiritual. On the contrary, spirituality is that which is one, and it takes more than one to do something. Besides, oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing but spirituality. In other words, if you seem to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are hallucinating because there is no more than that which is one.

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

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

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