SH (ALONE) I am the Destroyer of Worlds!

After a long intense night of driving taxi many years ago, I forgot what and where I was, and so there was nothing to hide the enlightenment of that which is one.

In the enlightenment of that which is one there is nothing but bright white light, and everything ´happens´ so fast, that there is no time to think and hold onto concepts of eternity, love, stillness and whatnot.

When I later read The New Testament and Bhagavad Gita there were passages, that triggered memories of the enlightenment of that which is one. The memories are vague though because Alexius did not experience it. The enlightenment of that which is one is formless so nothing definable can enter it. Yet there are vague memories of something indefinable, and so Alexius is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one.

»I have become the destroyer of worlds«
The enlightenment of
that which is one is enlightenment in a very literal sense, like when Jesus said: When your eyes become single your whole body will be full of light – or like St. Paul, when he was blinded by light – or like Arjuna according to Bhagavad Gita said after having been initiated by Krishna: »It is brighter than thousands of suns. I have become the destroyer of worlds …«

A dream can be compared to a simulated world meanwhile layered on top that which is real. As long as you believe the simulated world to be real, it will seem to cover that which is real, as if it does not exist.

The world is not there anymore. Not because it has been destroyed, but just because it was never there – except as an imagination, which is not possible to have in that which is one, as that requires more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In the enlightenment of that which is one, the world is not there anymore. Not because it has been destroyed, but just because it was never there – except as an imagination, which is not possible to have in that which is one, as that requires more than one to imagine something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

I would not put it like that myself, because there is nobody in the enlightenment of that which is one, so there is not a body to be full of light, neither a world to destroy. The world is just not there, and there is no memory of it ever having been there. It is like a dream that is no more when you wake up in the morning.

The translations of both The New Testament and Bhagavad Gita differs from translator to translator, and as the above quotes are from memory, they may not be the exact words in your addition. But it does not really matter, because regardless of how you speak about it, the enlightenment of that which is one cannot be described. In other words, what is said about it in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings should not be taken as the real thing, but pointers towards it.

Imagine you want to describe an orange to somebody, who has never seen or tasted an orange. Maybe you say it has the colour of an orange sunset, is round like a ball and taste as sweetened water. Yet the person, that you have given this description, will never find out what an orange is by drinking sweet water from a rounded cup at sunset.

You have to see and taste it yourself to know what it is – and in terms of the enlightenment of that which is one, you will never know, because a person cannot be enlightened. You as a person is gone in the enlightenment of that which is one. There is nobody there to experience it – that is why it cannot be known.

No god to see in the world and nothing to find
Some think the enlightenment of that which is one is to see god in everyone. This is delusional, there is no god in the world. In the context of god and the world, just think of electricity lightening up a room via a bulb. You see the room due to the power of electricity. Yet you cannot see electricity itself, because it is not in the room illuminated by the bulb. But there is no god either in the enlightenment of that which is one, except if you use the word in its original meaning, namely one perpetual present.

If you return to the world after the enlightenment of that which is one, there is no more need to search for the meaning of life, because you know there is no more than that which is one and so there is no life a world, where it seems to be more than one. Besides to search for something requires more than one, so whatever you think you find is not real.

473ab673-5995-4175-96a8-ef93e44afbe8The freedom to be a person
One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one has no need to be forgiven or loved, because there is no ´I´ deciding what to do and therefore nobody to forgive or love. But when there is no ´I´ to protect and preserve, there is freedom to pretend being any kind of personality with all the ups and downs a specific personality seems to have.

To make long short: There is no need to keep together an appearance of someone with coherent opinions and behaviour. You are free to use the ´I´ as the personality, you fancy. It is simply a tool you use like your leg, hand eyes and so on.

Some personalities I have pretended to be for a while: Child, Teenager, Taxi driver, Monk, Husband, Daddy, Adult, Business Man, Millionaire, DJ, Designer, Teacher, Photographer and recently: Non-teacher.

Enlightenment is not of a world where there seems to be more than one
Regarding the enlightenment of that which is one, it is best to forget everything you have ever heard or read about it – including what is said in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Any idea of any form, that you might think it has, is wrong. It has no form, it is formless. Yet, if you look for something formless, you still look for something. But if you do not believe to be someone definitive – or do not care about it – there is not something definable to hide it.

Please note that I am in no way postulating the above statements are the perfect way to put it – there is no such thing as perfection in a world where there seems to be more than one – so if you look for inconsistencies, misspelling or whatever, you may find it, but if you look for pointers to the enlightenment of that which is one, you may also find that.

Kind regards
Alexius


NOTE: Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings talks about two kinds of enlightenment, namely the enlightenment of that which is one, which cannot be experienced, as that requires more than one, and glimpses of it, which is experienced through the inner senses when the outer ones are partly closed.

How come I  write Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings? Dunno. Maybe it is like nature, that keeps on spreading its seeds, whether they sprout or not, because the purpose is to freely give away everything received, as in doing so everything is received. What more can I ask!

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

Enlightenment of that which is one and the fear of it

Why are the oranges fall down from the trees outside the house of Alexius every November? The answer is simple, it is the season for that. Likewise, it seems to be the season for Alexius to write an article about bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one and the fear it may involve.

Enlightenment of that which is one is not of a world where there seems to be more than one
The enlightenment of that which is one does not result in some kind of spiritual understanding or connection with a higher being. In fact the enlightenment of that which is one results in nothing, as it takes more than one to be or have something.

As it also takes more than one to return to that which is one, there is no help to get from it. Besides, it does not know, that you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. It is not possible, because that which is one is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one. But it is possible to imagine being someone specific in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Most books or lectures about the enlightenment of that which is one are based on speculations of how to exclude what is judged as bad in order become full of light and joy. But to exclude is to separate and therefore an enhancement of the belief in being someone definitive – and nothing definable can enter the enlightenment of that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to taking a ride in a fairground carousel so fast, that the mind has to give up seeing any differences at all. Consequently it is not possible to remain as someone definitive and so there is therefore nobody to experience the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to taking a ride in a fairground carousel moving so fast, that the mind has to give up seeing any differences at all. Consequently, it is not possible to remain as someone definitive, and so there is nobody to experience the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one undoes this imagination. Yet it is not an experience, neither a state of mind or some kind of being or consciousness, as it takes more than one to experience or be something. It can be compared to taking a ride in a fairground carousel moving so fast that the mind has to give up producing an ´I´ that is experiencing it.

Well, there is no mind at all in the enlightenment of that which is one. There is just one bright light. Not a light though that lightens up anything, as that would require more than one. For the same reason, there is no memory at all of a world where there seems to be more than one.

In other words, the imagination of being someone definitive is wiped out by the enlightenment of that which is one, so there is nobody left to experience bliss or anything else. Therefore, what he is about to tell is not based on his experience of the enlightenment of that which is one, but vague memories of it.

His memories may seem to imply, the enlightenment of that which is one is a sequence of events happening in linear time, but that is only because one perpetual present cannot be described in a world of linear time. And even though it is described as it ´happened´ many years ago, in non-linear time, it is still ´happening´. In other words, his description may be a mix of several ´excursions´ from linear time into one perpetual present.

An early morning, when he was 22 years old, he bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one after having intensely worked as a taxi driver for about 15 hours. Somehow the sum of the images from driving around the streets continually looking for customers turned the world into something less definable and more blurry. As he had no energy left to establish a focus of the world he was sucked into by a spiralling show of psychedelic light, that did not seem to come from anywhere.

All info of someone definitive is extracted by either the light, sound, feeling or taste of the enlightenment of that which is one, so that there is nobody to be sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one, where there is neither chaos or order, as that would require more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

All info of someone definitive is extracted by either the light, sound, feeling or taste of the enlightenment of that which is one, so that there is nobody to be sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one, where there is neither chaos or order, as that requires more than one. Most though try to avoid loosing their identity by identifying the black hole as something definitive, so that they remain someone definitive as well and cannot be sucked into the formlessness of that which is one. If so they are not bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, but just having glimpses** of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one is to be compared to the fusion of all lights, or sounds, or emotions, or tastes – depending on our preference as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

None of these fusions are the formlessness of that which is one. They are merely tools for attracting you to the extent, that you do not fight it, when all the thoughts collected to fabricate your personality are extracted by it, so that there is not something definable to be sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of that which is one.

This article is about the first time the belief in being someone definitive momentarily was undone for Alexius, so the enlightenment of that which is one was bid welcome. It is the most known aspect* of it, namely light, that was bid welcome. Later its other aspects* – sound, emotion and taste –was also bid welcome. Not as a mix though  but one by one. It is not possible to mix something in the enlightenment of that which is one, as that requires more than one.

I assume it is not necessary to bid welcome all the aspects* of the enlightenment of that which is one, but that one of them is sufficient in regards to completely forget the imagination of a world where there seems tl be more than one.

Suddenly a black spot with no fixed location, nor a fixed form, looking like a horse head or an embryo showed up. And then a completely colourless light – brighter than the coloured light outside the black spot – started to show as a ring outside the edges of the black spot, that must have been a hole, as colourless light exploded out of it.

This light took over everything, as it was everywhere and yet nowhere. And just like that extracted the concept of Alexius and a world where there seems to be more than one and left it at the edge of the black hole so the nothingness of him gracefully was falling through it into the formlessness of that which is one. If it was falling or floating he cannot recall because everything happened simultaneously, but there is a sense of forever falling while at the time floating in a space that was not there – and then in the exact same moment as forever falling there was nothing.

That is all folks. There is no more to tell. At this point, the enlightenment of that which is one is over, and there is nothing but the formlessness of that which is one, as it is called in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. It is not a big void of nothing filled with exotic ideas of unconditional love and whatnot. On the contrary. It is not filled with anything since that requires more than one

There is nothing to disturb you in that which is one, because there is no more than one. It is so simple compared to the peace fabricated in a world where there seems to be more than one, as that is always based on having to exclude something disturbing.

Thus it is neither peaceful or anything else. Metaphorically speaking the speed of it is so fast that it is not possible to differentiate anything. The conception of separation is not possible, so there is not something to see, nor anyone to see this. That is why stillness is not needed. Fortunately, because it is incredibly noisy – and then again all the noise is so loud, that it merges into one sound, all lights into one light, all emotions into one feeling and all tastes into one taste, that last no time.

This is not to be understood as the enlightenment of that which is a mix of light, sound, emotion and taste. These are four aspects* of it, but you only bid one of them welcome at a time. It does not matter which one of them. They all have the same purpose. Namely to attract you to such an extent, that you cannot help but let them extract all thoughts making it appear as if you are someone definitive and leave them at the edge of a black hole so that there is nothing definable to be sucked through it into the formlessness of that which is one.

It is, of course, a metaphor to say, oneness is on the other side of a black hole, as it is formless and therefore without end, inside or outside – also without size.

Dunno if there is a spiral around the black hole of the enlightenment of that which is one, because being that close nothing seems to differ from each other. Yet for a moment so short, that it is not conceivable, a light inside the edge of the black hole so much brighter that the very bright light around it, suddenly explodes into a formless light that does not include Alexius but the formlessness of that which I am. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

I seem to remember a spiral around a black hole in the enlightenment of that which is one. I do not remember it exactly as in this image – either because everything was moving so fast or I was so close that nothing seemed to differ from each other. Yet for a moment so short, that it is not conceivable, a light inside the edge of the black hole – so much brighter than the very bright light around it – suddenly like thousands of atomic bombs exploded into a formless light that erased anything definable, so what ´happened´ after being sucked by this light through a black hole I cannot tell, neither can I find any image on the web that can illustrate the vague memories of the nothingness of everything. Fortunately, you can go there yourself – or rather stop going anywhere. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The enlightenment of that which is one is unexplainable
When the belief in being Alexius momentarily was undone and the enlightenment of that which is one was bid welcome, he had never seen a black hole before (and fortunately he did not see it in the enlightenment of that which is one, as otherwise, he would have bounced back to a world defined by time and space), so describing the entrance to that which is one as a black hole is done in retrospect. And calling it an entrance is a metaphor because there is neither an entrance or an exit to that which is endless.

In fact, it was not before much later, when he saw pictures of black holes from far out in the universe, that he sensed how familiar they were – much more than appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be explained in a world, as it takes more than one to explain something

Describing the enlightenment of that which is one in a world, where there seems to be more than one, is not possible, because even though so much is happening nothing is happening since it is one perpetual present.

To bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, you, of course, do not have to drive a taxi all night or be in ´a deep sleep´ like Buddha supposedly described it. Whatever way you lose focus or stop defining and labelling will do in regards to bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. Meditation though may work against this because many use it to concentrate and focus in an attempt to achieve something specific – and anything definable fence of the enlightenment of that which is one.

The return from that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one
How come Alexius returned to a world where there seems to be more than one after the enlightenment of that which is one? According to legend Buddha returned out of compassion for others. If this is the case for Alexius, he is not aware of it. But why should he return out of compassion for others, when there is no more than that which is one.

You must come emptyhanded.

Jesus, who also seemed to return, said that going to heaven – assuming that by going there meant to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one – is more difficult than for a camel to go through an eye of a needle. And in ancient scriptures of India, it is often said, that you have to come empty-handed.

It seems, that a person momentarily can forget to uphold the believe in being someone definitive, so that there is not something definable to go through the eye of a needle into the enlightenment of that which is one – but it also seems, this eye of a needle is just big enough for a slight leftover of the belief in being someone definitive to pass through, and that this little piece will fear being completely annihilated by the formlessness of that which is one.

To defend itself against this, it hangs onto anything that it can define as something, and by doing so you are back as someone definitive in a world limited by time and space, where things happen at such a slow speed, that there is plenty of time to realise, there is nothing to fear, if you do not believe to be someone definitive, as then there is nothing to annihilate.

We cannot know how come Buddha and Jesus returned to a world where there seems to be more than one in order to appear as if they were somebody specific there, but from also having returned Alexius knows there is nobody to help in such a world and nothing to heal but the sick belief, that something appearing to be definable can block out the formlessness of oneness.

Maybe he wanted to be reestablished as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, so he could escape what he perceived to be a relentless power taking away his free will and totally wipe out what he believed to be, which is also true as seen from the point of believing to be someone definitive. But if you do not uphold this belief there is no free will to take away or anybody conceivable to wipe out – and therefore nothing to fear.

Seen from the perspective of that which is one, which is only possible metaphorically speaking as it takes more than one to see something, nothing is taken away or wiped out, because there is no more than that which is one.

Fearing something as if it is outside of yourself is only possible, because you believe to be and have more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Without the belief in being someone, there is no annihilation to fear
Fear of annihilation, as talked about in the above, is often related to an authority problem. In the case of Alexius, he perceived his father and later other authority figures as somebody determined to take away his free will and incorporate him like a satellite in their world.

If such a perception is correct or not is not the matter. Freedom is only a problem if you have chosen to believe, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Without this belief, there is no more than that which is one, and therefore nothing to take away anything.

It is not possible though to completely stop believing that you are someone definitive while appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one because otherwise, it would not appear to be there. It is also not possible to solve all unsolved issues with others, as being someone specific is based upon having those problems.

But it is possible to realise, that problems are simply something you pretend to have in order to appear as someone definitive, so when the enlightenment of that which is one exposes them, there is no reason to take the fear of being annihilated by an omnipresent power serious, because the problems are not yours but something you pretend to have.

Another straightforward way to undo the belief in being someone specific is to see everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one. When you as a person in the world is nothing but a symbol, it is not fearful when this symbol is erased by the enlightenment of that which is one, so only that which it symbolises is left. You can read more about this in hack #2.1 Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality and hack #2.2 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.

To see that being someone definitive is nothing but make-believe, you must first acknowledge, that you think, you know what and where you are – and that you therefore are mistaken.

The fastest way to undo the belief in being someone at all is to realise that you do not know what and where you are. When there is not someone to be conscious about someone definitive, there is nothing to lose or let go off.

The above ways of undoing the belief in being someone definitive does not require enlightenment. It definitely helps, but the despair of appearing to be someone in a capsule of time and space is just as good a prerequisite.

A season for everything
That there is a way to undo the belief in being someone definitive, may be an obstacle in itself, because ultimately speaking there is nothing to undo and nobody to return to the formlessness of oneness, as there is no more than that which is one. So maybe Alexius just appeared to return from the enlightenment of that which is one to a world where there seems to be more than one because it was the season for such an imagination. And maybe one day it is the season imagination is over so that there is no imagination to hide the unimaginable, namely that which is one. Do not know, and it does not really matter, because there is no more than that which is one, regardless of seasons or whatever else imagined that requires more than one.

*) This article is about the most known aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one, namely light. Whatever aspect comes to you when the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome depends on your preferences as someone definitive – if you, for example, are very visual, light is what is coming to extract all definable traits of yours, so that there is not something to be sucked through a black hole into that which is one. You can read about the other aspects in the article Last night I died again from the world and in the articles in the below list.

  • This article about the enlightenment of that which is one and the fear of it shall in no way be taken as my thoughts about the truth, or some conclusions I have made based on experiences, readings or lectures. I do not thrust experiences and hardly ever read books or attend conferences, but most of all I cannot think! In other words, this article does not consist of thoughts of mine, but the thoughts passing that passed by a moment long time gone. That is all.

Concentration is suppressing that which is you

_IGP8362-Edit

By focussing a lot, this goat-herd seems to be in control of his goats. Yet both the master and the followers are imprisoned by this. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
To fence off what you do not like, you need to continually separate your view of the world into fragments of good and bad. Lots of concentration is required to maintain the appearances of the world as divided into those categories and their subcategories of being more or less good and bad.

In movies it bank robbers, killers and worried people look quite concentrated, while the happy ones seems unconcentrated.

The more you concentrate, the more you will able to control yourself and focus your energy towards doing something specific. For the bad ones, this can be very helpful for drilling a hole in a bank safe, for instance, and for the good ones it can be very helpful in preventing a bank robbery.

But it is not helpful in regards to enjoying the moment as it is. On the contrary. The more you concentrate, the less you are able to go with the flow and participate in spontaneous laughter. You are focused on attaining a specific goal in the future and cannot enjoy what is around you in the present if it does not seem to be part of the glorious story, you have made up and that you are concentrating on manifesting in the future.

To make long short, contrary to what you may have learned in the context of for example meditation, concentration is not beneficial in regards to not being blinded by the belief that there is more than the formlessness of oneness, as it appears to be hidden by what you focus on.

Defocus neutralise the apparent differences of the world so that the belief in separation cannot be upheld and therefore does not appear to hide that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But when you are not concentrated on achieving something imagined in the future, you are not focussed – and being defocused the apparent differences of the world make no difference. As that means the belief in separation falls apart, there is nobody to know, what and where you are. In other words, there is not someone definitive to hide the formlessness of oneness.

Reading a book requires much focus, so often you will end up feeling quite paralysed, which is a state enhancing the belief a world defined by time and space. Television and cinemas are more beneficial in regards to undoing this belief, as they do not require the same amount of focus.

The same applies to reading on a digital media. After some hours of multitasking* on the web you may be quite spaced out, which is terrific in regards to undoing the belief in a world defined by time and space.

Multitasking* is a great help to not focus. Doing several things at the same time, there is not much time to care about specifics or the labelling of everything. This is a prerequisite for a perfect moment and/or the result of it, as it is a state of not-knowing.

To focus leads to fixation and so it seems you are stuck, where as defocus if you defocus on the same, it ceases to appear. The image is grabbed from the web

Focusing leads to fixation, and so it seems you are stuck in a capsule of time and space. But if you do not focus at all, you are not fixed in time and space, and without it, you are not someone definitive. Thus there is nothing to hide the formlessness of that which is you, namely that which is one. So if you have to pick up your kids from the kindergarten, you do not defocus but include the matter at hand. In this way you are still on track in regards to undoing the belief in time and space, because it is based on inclusion, so it cannot survive being included. The image is grabbed from the web.

When nothing is wrong or missing, you are not of the world, though you appear to be there
The only order is oneness, but this you cannot find in a world where there seems to be more than one, because it is based on the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Relating to a world where there seems to be more than one implies that you believe it is real. This belief requires constant focus to maintain the apparent difference between you and others, good and bad and so on.

But defocusing neutralises all differences. If you continue to look at something without focusing on it, not only will it disappear but the whole the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one and you as someone registering it. In linear time this requires about half an hour of constant defocus, but if you think you have unfinished business in the world, you will not be able to not focus on fixing this.

The concentration needed to focus on something and thereby exclude what is not focussed on tightens up the body, so that it feels more real. In other words, the more you include, the less there is to focus on, the less the body feels real and the more obvious it is that it is an illusion, since life includes everything as it is formless and therefore everything.

If so, you may be better off by focusing on your problems – not to exclude them though but to include them. When included they cannot be focussed on, so the more you include, the less a world where there seems to be more than one can be experienced as real. Yet you at the same time can have the excitement of appearing to be there.

That which is one has no centre, since it requires more than one to have one.

To be centered is a numb state of separation. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
If you do not want the belief in a world defined by time and space to hide the formlessness of oneness, it is not desirable to be centred, as that requires much control in order to continuously exclude what is not judged to be centred. And as to exclude is to separate, the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is enhanced instead of undone.

Trying to be centred is often a way to fence off what you judge to be wrong in the world, so that it seems as it is a good and not a bad experience to appear there. But to experience goodness only is to separate, so it will not feel good. Unfortunately most try to solve this by becoming more centred in order to fence off more bad experiences.

That being said, if you have worked hard to separate specific parts of the world from the image you have made of yourself so that it appears to be a story of a good person in a bad world, you do not need to undo that. It happens all by itself if the need to separate is included.

Everything in a world defined by time and space needs contrast so it can be to be experienced as something definable. Thus you can only experience to be separated if you also – consciously or not – experience to be connected. And as the sum of the two opposite sides in a contrast always is a perfect moment, that is what you have if you do not keep the two sides apart. A perfect moment though is not a sensation like for example falling in love but rather the relief of being in a state of not-knowing. This is not limited to the period called now.

If you have an expectation to a perfect moment, it will not be perfect until the expectation and its opposite – desperation – is included exactly as they appear to you. And as said in the previous articles, inclusion is to not exclude, so when desperation is not excluded in an attempt to enjoy the thrill of expectation, it is included.

Moaning and whining sets the focus on problems and you need to stay focussed to appear as if you are someone in a world, where there seem to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Grievances keep you focused, and you need to stay focused in order to constantly be able to control thoughts so they can be used to keep together the imagination of a world defined by time and space.

Believing to see something is an illusion, as it takes more than one to see anything, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

Thoughts have no power
This is not to say that it is thoughts that make such a world appear to be real. If you, within the context of this world, is sitting in your bathtub and start to imagine a world in the steam from the hot water, it is not the steam, that makes the world. It has no such power. There only appear to be a hidden world in the steam, because you like to imagine it. Thoughts can be compared to the steam.

Even though the steam in your bathtub may seem to hide the bathroom, nothing in the bathroom is changed by the steam. Likewise, even though your belief in the thought construction of a world, where there seem to be more than one, appears to hide that which is one, nothing has changed. There is no more than that which is one.

Nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one lasts. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In the context of the world, steam is not really something, so it only appears to be there for a short while. And in the context of the formlessness of oneness thoughts are gone the same moment they appear to be there.

As a story has a beginning and an end, so has the story of a world defined by time and space, and as oneness has no end, since it is formless and therefore endless, a world defined by time and space is not part of it.

That is unless you want to believe it is possible to be and have more than that which is one and therefore hang onto them in order to fabricate a story of a world defined by time and space outside the formlessness of oneness. There is, however, nothing outside of it, since formlessness is endless. Hence the story of a world where there seems to be more than one is fabricated by empty space.

If you want, that which is real, namely the formlessness of oneness, forget about focusing on forms like for example in this image. Focusing will only enhance the appearance of form and therefore the belief, that separation is possible. Defocusing on the other hand will blur out everything until there are no forms to hide the formlessness of oneness.

The world is make-believe upheld by focusing on specific appearances
There is nothing in a world defined by time and space, so if you believe to be there, you cannot leave it, but the belief that you are there can be undone – and as focusing is what keeps the belief together defocusing will undo it.

Contrasting defocus with focus
It is through defocusing the words in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are exposed. So if you do not try to understand them, they will hack your focus, so you do not see anything specific. Be aware though, that it may seem to take time if you are attached to the perception of linear time, because like everything else in a world defined by time and space is based on contrasts – in this case, the contrast of past and future.

Not knowing what he writes is how Alexius types down his enlightened non-teachings.

So while in the process of undoing the belief in a world defined by time and space, you must operate within contrasts, which in regards to defocusing you do by alternating it with focusing. Just like Alexius is defocusing in order to write these non-teachings and focusing when proofreading and publishing them.

Or you are non-focused when reading the non-teachings, and focused when implementing them in a world defined by time and space. To read in a defocused way, however, is not to read between the lines. There is nothing in between the lines, so if you seem to experience something there, you have focused a lot to imagine this. So to read in a defocused way is rather to not know what you are reading.

Have your cake and eat it too
A terrific way to contrast focus with defocussing is to see everything in a world defined by time and space as symbols of that which makes it possible to focus on something specific, namely the formlessness of oneness.** Perceiving the world like that everything definable is a symbol of that which cannot be defined. Thus the apparent differences of the world do not make a difference, which means you are defocusing.

In this way, you can have your cake and eat it too. You get the excitement of appearing to be and/or have more than that which is one, while the belief that this is possible is being undone.

NOTES:

  • The above should not be understood as to concentrate is bad in a world defined by time and space. It is an excellent tool in such a world for establishing yourself. But it is not okay if you want to undo the belief that you are someone definitive.

SH START Everything that appears to be more than one is an illusion

tree-leaf-gif

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 #1.4 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.


NOTES:

To set the body free is to set you free

If you concentrate a lot you may be able to find, something that appears to be a person in this image, and so you may extend this appearance by imagining what that person is like. But if you do not focus, you will not see anything definable there, and so you are well on your way back to that which is you because there is nobody in the image. – and you are not definable.

PART 1:
Imagine that sitting in a bathtub you start to get glimpses of something that looks like a world in the steam coming up from the bathtub. Or imagine you look at a drawing or painting of some persons. What you see seem to see is not real in the sense, that there is no life in the paintings or in the world you grasp in the steam of the bath top. Yet your imagination can make those lifeless things appear to be alive.

Though projections are not real, they appear to be when you hide that their apparent effect is self-made.

If you project thoughts onto the persons in the painting, they will seem to be in love or at war depending on the thoughts you are projecting. If you feel good, you may project love onto them, and experience this to come back to you from them and not you. Hence it feels like the persons in the painting are alive.

By adding more thoughts to your love story – for example, that the persons are coming from the heart – more good vibes seem to come to you from outside, and so it seems you have a connection with somebody outside of you. Yet it is all a story, you have made up in your head in order to appear as if you are and have more than that which is one.

That which is not real cannot be explained, neither can that which is real
The above is an example to illustrate, the world is made from the fragments of things you imagine to see in oneness. The example does not explain everything though. Who is it, that see fragments of oneness, and is it possible to have fragments of oneness?

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

No, it is not possible to have fragments of oneness, and consequently, there are no fragments to see. But that which is not possible in reality may be possible in a fairy tale. Yet it is not possible to logically explain how something is possible in a world of a fairy tale, because there is no logical way to explain something that is not real. If there was it would be real. That is why so many like to ask, who they are.

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

Even though nobody has ever found an answer to that, they like to think the question in itself implies, that there is an answer to it, and that they, therefore, must exist as a real person.

It is just as crazy as to ask, who is the writer of this article and then start looking for the writer in the article. The writer is not there, and you are not in the world. Neither is there any explanation possible for that which is real, as it takes more than one to explain something, and reality is that which one.

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

This does not mean, that there may not be bodily problems, but the body can deal with that itself. It is constructed as a self-healing organism. You may give it a hand to make it easier for it to deal with its problems – just like you brush your teeth to protect them … but that is most of the time sufficient.

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

In a world encapsulated by time and space all projections of thoughts onto the body comes from the mind. In such a world everything is made up in the mind, also the idea of an ego, a physical or an astral world or a mind. The projections are what makes the body and the other ideas appearing to be real.

But the projections of perfection onto the body with the attempt to get rid of orange peel, obtain six-packs and whatnot is a burden for it. You can, therefore, make it easier for the body – and consequently, the person who appears to be there – by only projecting those thoughts onto the body, that is necessary for its survival in the world, and keep the rest of them in the mind.

Ways to depart that which is not real
To split body and mind in this way is also a very good exercise for departing the illusion of a world encapsulated by time and space because you can only leave it without a body. By separating body and mind, you will have a better time as a person in the world and at the same, you are ´closer´ to the formlessness of oneness.

You could, of course, go back to your childhood and find the obsessive patterns of the mind projected on the body, and then – maybe with the help of a psychologist – face them in order to undo them. But that is very time-consuming, and the psychologist is not interested in splitting up your fabricated connection between the body and mind, as that goes against preserving the belief that we are the body, we appear to be in.

A much easier way to set the body free is to simply forgive the little child, who chose to project things of the mind onto the body, that as a grown-up has caused you so much pain. That is all! You do not have to know when the pattern started, neither do you have to understand the thought system of the little child. It is hardly understandable anyway for a grown up. Besides your intellectual understanding is not what the little child needs.

You can choose to forgive the little child in you, who chose to project its problems of the mind onto the body. And should you not be aware of the child in you, you can simply forgive the body, that did what you asked it to do. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

An even easier way to set the body free is to forgive it for doing, what you have asked it to do.

The fastest and most simple way
Without that which is life no projections are possible, so you can simply choose to see all projection and what they seem to have caused, as symbols of that which is life. This way the body may still suffer from projections onto it, but not you, because even though you appear in the world, you are not of it when perceived as a symbol of life. In other words, you are no more not a victim of the body and/or the world.

You cannot go wrong when you choose to see everything in the world as symbols of that which is life, because whatever way you to do it is a symbol of that which is life. In other words, you do not have to be pure or in any other way to be perfect, because whatever you seem to be in the world symbolises that which is life.

Ultimately there are no choices, but in the world of duality there appear to be many.

PART 2:
In a world where time appears to be linear everything seems to take time. It takes, for example, eight minutes for the light of the sun to reach the Earth. So even though the body has been set free – see the previous article To set the body free is to set you free – it takes time before this is realised.

Nothing is very much, when there is no need to be and have more, because before there appeared to be more, there was nothing.

There may be old reflexes, that seems to disregard the new freedom because the very first reflex as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is to always be and have more than others, as that seems to confirm there is more than that which is one. But then you can ask yourself, if the quest for more, brings about more satisfaction. And if not, you acknowledge, you must have been wrong in looking for more, which sets you free from the endless demand in the mind for more so you can enjoy the subtle feeling of everything being a symbol of that which is one.

When the mind is not forced upon the body, as if they are in a higher union, thoughts are not used to decide, where to go but how to go. Where to go may still be ‘heard’ as a thought though, but not one that arises from an inner debate of what is right and wrong.

This is not so much a feeling though, as it is a state of emptiness from where the body acts on direct intuition instead speculations of what is right and wrong. This does not mean, however, that thoughts cannot be useful. They come in handy when you intuitively are directed to start making dinner, where they are a great a tool in figuring out when to turn on the oven – maybe assisted by Google where you can see how long time your food should be roasted.

A state of emptiness is too subtle to sense if you out of habit still look for more. No worries. Until that is phased out you can enjoy the effect of emptiness, that not interfering with the body brings about, namely direct intuition.

If you have children, are in a fixed working situation or something else that seems to limit you do not have to break free from that. Direct intuition will guide you within those limits. Appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is by itself a limitation of that which is life, so as long as you seem to be a person in such a world, you will not be expanding these limitations but be guided within them.

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

If the pain in the mind is not denied, the thoughts that seem to cause the pain cannot hurt, but thoughts projected onto the body – your own or somebody else´s – seem to be able to hurt and confirm the belief, that you are a person to be defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3: It is in the mind that you conceive yourself as someone, definitive in a body defined by time and space. But as that which is you is formless and therefore not limited by time and space it seems very painful to believe that you are someone definitive.

Yet it is pain, that makes this belief appear as if it is real. You pinch yourself to discover, whether you are dreaming or not. It is the experience of pain, that assures you to not be dreaming but alive.

In other words, to be alive is bracket together with being in pain, so even though the pain in your mind is unbearable, you do not want to really be healed of it. And as your sole existence as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is based on the denial of that which is one, denial is what you resort to in order to solve the problem with the pain in your mind. So you simply deny the pain in your mind by projecting it onto the body, which as a side effect appears more real through the pain coming from it.

Even though the projection of pain from the mind to the body results in a mind that seems peaceful, fear is also there, because you know that nothing in a world where there seems to be more than one will last. Hence you fear the return of pain.

It does not experience to return in the mind though, but in the parts of the body, where you hid the problems that seemed to cause you pain. These parts of the body become sick, and if you succeed in healing the physical symptoms the original problems of the mind find new places to hide – and so the story starts all over again.

A way to use the body as an offensive weapon can be to keep the mouth very closed, so no feelings slips out – especially those considered to be the evil, you judge part of the world to have done against you or others, which is the same, as the world is in the eye of the beholder.

A way to use the body as an offensive weapon is to keep the mouth closed, so no evil feelings slip out there. But you cannot selectively exclude one kind of feeling. The exclusion of one feeling rubs off on the others, so the more a feeling is denied by hiding it in the body the number it becomes. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The symptoms of sickness in your body makes you angry at the world, which you blame for the condition of it. Hence you turn your body into either a weapon of defence or attack. Maybe you keep the shoulders pushed forward into a position of defence or you keep them pushed back into a position of constant readiness to attack. You may also push one or both shoulders upwards to defend yourself against feelings coming from the body to the brain, so they instead are registered as mental activity, as that seems less frightening than facing the chaotic feelings. But physically speaking this result in shortening and/or extending the muscles, so that the natural balance of the body is messed up.

The only thing that will heal the pain in the mind is the undoing of the sick belief that you are someone definitive. This healing, however, most want to avoid, as the result is that they are nothing.

There are lots of ways to heal the symptoms of the body, but as the problem is in the mind and not the body, the problem remains until it is faced there. The way to face it is to realise, that you are not someone definitive. That will put an end to whatever destructive behaviour, you have developed, because when you are not ´there´, there is no reason to consider any feeling a problem.

So although it is painful to appear as someone definitive, you do not identify with that or any other feeling. Instead, you see them as symbols of that which is you.

Greediness is just another symbol of that which is one.

Greediness is a natural state of mind in a world where there seems to be more than one, so do not try to correct it behind ideas of a body-mind-soul connection. There is nothing to correct but the belief that you are someone definitive, and it corrects itself when seeing this state as just another symbol of that which is one, as then it becomes a positive confirmation of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX 1:
What you experience to receive is what you have, because you cannot recognise what you do not have. What you have is what you believe to be, so in order to undo this belief, it is, therefore, best not to disguise it behind ideas of being spiritual, but to see the greedy creature you believe to be.

And the more you see that everything in a world where there seems to be more than one are symbols of that which is one, the less frightening it is to the greedy creature you appear to be.

APPENDIX 2:
As everything can be turned into an instrument to deny your present state of mind, so can seeing everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one.

No worries. If that is the case you simply include denial as a symbol of that which is one – or include all problems as a symbol of that which is one. And should you forget to include something as a symbol of that which is one, you include your forgetfulness as a symbol of that which one.


NOTES:

(SH) 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 #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive) – or to perceive everything as symbols as that which is life (hack #2.1 Seeing symbols of non-duality in a world of duality and hack #2.2 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) may be the fastest way. But then again time is an illusion.

Nevertheless, this hack includes forgiveness, which is the favourite hack of A Course in Miracles, and all the duality hacks of Alexius, as they of course also symbolise that which is life. That is except the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #5-7.2 The enlightenment of that which is one cannot be found in a world where there seems to be more than one, but glimpses of it can), as that which is one is life.

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

This 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 lousy 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 not of your own and in your own speed because only the ego has something of its own.

Love makes no difference at all

_IGP3854_5_6_7_8-Edit2

The flowers come and go, but the tree, that makes it possible for the flowers to appear, remains. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

To love or hate makes no difference. It is just two sides of the same coin, and which side of it you pretend to be, does not matter. None of the sides is that which is life, as it is no different from that which is one, which is what makes it possible pretending to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The oneness of life is never-ending
When the life of a computer is over, the energy, that the computer received so it could simulate a world on the screen, is still there, namely electricity. The same thing when the life of the body is over, that which made it possible for the body to appear as if it was a living thing in a world where there seems to be more than one, is still there. In Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings it has several names, for example non-duality, the oneness of life, the formlessness of oneness, one perpetual present or that which is life / one / spirit.

If you do not believe to be someone definitive you are nobody, what you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is someone you pretend to be. That which is you is not there and so nobody is dying, when the body stops to function. The formlessness of that which is you is still there – just like when an actor is still there when he stops playing a part in a movie.

Love and hate are equally interesting expressions of passion
If you hate or love, while pretending to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, makes no difference to the oneness of life. Those feelings are just two sides of the same coin. Being identified with one of those sides though, there seems to be a big difference between them.

But that is only because the passion of love is socially accepted as good, while the passion of hate is considered as something evil, that should be controlled and kept in the dark. Yet the nervous circuits in the brain, that are responsible for the experience of hate are the same used during the experience of love.

In other words: The brain consider the passion of hate just as interesting as the passion of love. The same applies to any other contrast. It is equally exciting to explore good as bad, right as wrong, black as white and so on.

The apparent difference between the endless appearances of a world where there seems to be more than one does not make a difference, when perceived as symbols of that which makes them possible to appear.

You may, of course, choose to explore just love, but honestly where is the fun in that. Who but the unfulfilled think they need only love? And who but the beast is looking for beauty?

Love is not the answer. The world is not just beautiful. It is also ugly. If you see everything in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of the oneness of life, there is no reason to limit yourself to explore just one aspect of it. Think about a child who does the most unexpected things. It is amusing. And so is a world where there seems to be more than one when you see everyone as symbols of the oneness of life!*.

If wishes and desires are fulfilled or not does not matter, when perceived as symbols of the that which is life. Consequently fulfilled or not or feeling fulfilled is just as fulfilling.

That which is life is not exclusive but inclusive.** This does not mean, that you have to love heavy metal music if you hate it. Hate is also a symbol of that which is life, so the apparent difference between feeling hate or love makes no difference.

Do not be what you appear to do, but the one appearing to do it.

APPENDIX:
Selflessness is not about doing selfless actions. There is no such thing in a world where there seems to be more than one. In such a world you need to appear as if you are someone definitive separated from the whole. In other words, you must appear to have a self, that individually determines what to do and think.

It is pretending to be a self, that makes you selfless.

This does not mean though, that you have to believe, it is you. Just like you do not have to believe, that you are the fighter in a video game. You only have to pretend it. And it is pretending to be a self, that makes you selfless.

You are not the fighter, you pretend to be in a video game, even though you do everything necessary to be a winner. Likewise, you are not the self you pretend to be in the world, even though you do whatever is necessary to preserve the self in a world where there seems to be more than one.

So selflessness is not about doing selfless actions, but about not being identified with what it seems to think, feel and do when pretending to be that specific self.

On a vacation in a foreign country, you appear to be a different person than in your native country, as you pretend to be a tourist exploring a foreign world. Likewise what you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is not that which is you but something you pretend to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When an electric bulb dies, it cannot go to the power station, which until then was its source of life. It cannot go anywhere – and it never could. It only seemed to be alive because of what is illuminated in the dark due to the electricity supported by the power station.

Reality is that which is one
The power station was there before the bulb began to radiate light, and it is still there when the bulb stops spreading light. Yet it does not know, that it has been used by a bulb because it only knows that which lasts, namely electricity.

When a bulb is identified with its appearance everything is over when it cannot function as a bulb anymore. It is dead. Period.

But if the bulb is not identified with the experience of itself, which seems to be defined by what it illuminates, but only pretend to be a bulb, then it does not die when its function as a bulb is over, but become that which always was there and still is, namely electricity. Pretending to be a bulb though must be set in motion while it still functions as a bulb – otherwise fear of the end will set in when its function starts to fade out. Hence it will try to hang onto what it believes to be life, namely being a bulb.

How to pretend being someone you are not
To pretend being a bulb can be compared to having a vacation in another country. You pretend to be a tourist, who is exploring the way the locals live – maybe you also try to speak a little of their language even though it seems strange compared to yours. All the time you know, you are not at home and that it is only a matter of time before you are.

To be a tourist in a world defined by time and space
Nothing in a world defined by time and space lasts. That is how you know it is not real, because what is real lasts. So if you identify the person you appear to be in a world defined by time and space, you will die, when the body stops to function. But if you just pretend to be someone in a body nothing real is dying, when the body ends.

How to choose pretending to be someone definitive
You cannot really choose pretending to be someone definitive, but if you are fed up with believing to be someone in a world defined by time and space and feel there is nothing to live up to, nobody or something that needs your help, you stop caring about what you appear to be. As nothing seems to matter, you may as well pretend to be someone you fancy – and so the absurdity of a world defined by time and space turns out to be a comedy in which you pretend to be an amusing actor.

Now you as an entity defined by time and space falls apart.

When the body stops to function you fall apart as someone definitive. If not fighting this, there is not something to hide there never was and never will be anything else than the formlessness of life. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Now you die
In the oneness of life there is nothing to miss because it is formless and therefore endless, so everything is there. But in a world where everything is divided into definable items, there are much to miss. That is how you know, you are not in the oneness of life. As soon as something appears to be definable, there is fear of not getting enough of it and if getting enough, there is fear of losing what you seem to have.

This fear of losing what you have is all that is left when the body stops to function.  Nothing can make that go away if you believe to be someone definitive. It is the moment of truth. It is now as you have never experienced it before and never will again, because now what you believe to be and dies.

How not to die
In a world where there seems to be more than one every experience involves more than one. The one who is believed to be the experiencer and the world experienced to be outside of the experiencer, and as an experience needs to be contrasted in order for it to be recognised everything is divided in contrast.
 

You cannot recognise love, for example, without knowing hate. The experiencer therefore always must choose between the opposing sides of contrasts. If you, for example, want to experience love, you must exclude hate, so that the exclusion of hate defines the feeling of love. You can read more about contrasts in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is a perfect moment and hack #3.6 Inclusiveness is pure bliss.

But as oneness is formless and therefore endless, there is nothing to contrast it. Hence it cannot be experienced – least of all in a world where there seems to be more than one. In such a world you can only know what is divided into more than one and therefore not one. This on the other hand means you can know, that what you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is not real if that which is one is formless and therefore endless.

So what is real, that which is one or a world where there seems to be more than one? When something is real one moment and not the next one, it is an illusion, so if what you appear to be has an end, it is not real. In other words, a world where there seems to be more than one is not real. Hence what you appear to be there is something you pretend to be.

As mentioned above this must be fully grasped before the body stops to function or you will fear its termination and fight to remain as what you are not, which is not possible as a body is needed to maintain the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. To make long short, as what you believe to be is not real, only that which is real and the only reason for being able to have an experience of something unreal remains, namely the oneness of life.

When – in the context of the bulb metaphor – a bulb cannot illuminate something anymore it is forever dead, if identified with the ability to illuminate something. But if it knows, it is not what it can do, but that which makes it possible to do it, it remains as electricity.

That a bulb is not identified with its appearance does not mean, that it knows what it is that is empowering it, as that cannot be seen in the world illuminated by the bulb. But it means that the bulb has no knowledge of what and where it appears to be so that there is no consciousness of being anything else at all.

Consequently, there is not something dying, when the bulb stops pretending to be someone illuminating a world outside of itself. All that there is, is the power that made it possible to pretend to be a bulb.
