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 #4.4 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.

How to find peace

Experiences are deceptive. The two orange dots in this image are for example most likely experienced not to have the same size although there actually is no difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Experiences are deceptive. The two orange dots in this image are for example most likely experienced to have different sizes. Yet there is no difference in size if you actually measure them. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»When the outer has become as the inner, and the lower as the upper, then will this world find peace.« Jesus according to the Gospel of Thomas.

When the apparent difference between outer and inner, lower and upper make no difference dimensions cease to appear. For something to be defined by time and space it needs to be different from something else, so if there is no difference experienced, there is no separation to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness since formlessness is endless.

In other words, what is dimensional does not exist. It only seems so as long as you insist on perceiving differences as if they make a difference. This illusion is the starting point of believing to be in a world defined by time and space. It is fabricated by imagining it is possible to observe the formlessness of oneness from different angles, which makes it appear as if there are different dimensional scenarios occurring in linear time.

To make long short: By observing you repress, that reality is the formlessness of oneness and not a world defined by time and space.

But you cannot choose to be anything else than the formlessness of oneness, as formlessness is endless, so there is no more than that which is one. You can, however, imagine being someone in a world defined by time and space, where everything appears to be in different sizes that you can choose from.

It can be fun pretending to be where you are not, but believing to be where you are not it feels like imprisonment you want to escape. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Unfortunately, all experiences are deceptive. Think for example about the Earth, that is experienced to be flat even though it is round. Nothing in the world is what it seems to be. Actually, it is nothing but empty space. That is why happiness cannot be found ´there´ no matter how big your home is, your breast or penis is, or how small your ego appears to be.

But if you do not believe to be someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, you can have fun pretending to be ´there´. Just like – within the context of such a world – it can be fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

Yet believing to be in a world defined by time and space, you will be frustrated by what it delivers, because nothing lasts no matter its size or apparent greatness, regardless it seems to be spiritual or mundane. So there will always be fear of loss, and as you still have vague memories of the formlessness of peace, it is a reminder that you have lost it. But this you cannot see until the feeling of loss is exposed instead of fenced off by the anger used to accuse something in a world defined by time and space for having caused it so that the formlessness of peace remains hidden,

In other words, although peace is always present, since it is formless and therefore endless, it appears to be hidden when you hide your apparent loss of it behind anger, whereas the exposure of the essential sadness entailed by the loss of peace makes it possible to feel why you are sad, namely because you believe to be someone definitive. Hence you are not far from wanting to have this belief undone so that it does not hide there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one … and that is peace.

If the unpleasant feeling of anger, just like any other feeling is perceived as a symbol of that which makes it possible to experience a world where there seems to be more than one, instead of being a denial of that which is one it becomes a positive confirmation of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

One very easy way to take the edge off anger is to perceive it for what it is, namely a symbol of reality because it would not be possible to experience an illusion without that which is real. In other words, everything in a world defined by time and space is a symbol of the formlessness of that which is one – including anger, love, god, angels, soul and whatnot – and perceived like that the sting is taken out of anger.

If you are looking for new experiences, no matter how high or pure they may seem to be, you have turned yourself into a victim of the future.

What you want is what you do not have, so if you presume that peace is what you want, the first step is to realise that you are fooling yourself. You cannot want peace, because contrary to the excitement it is that which is you.

But you can want not to hide peace with dreams of excitement.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The foundation of a world where there seems to be more than one is separation. First, that which is one seems to become two and then more and more – and this is what such a world is about. Yet to be or have more does not lead to more peace, but more separation and therefore a feeling of more loss, which enhances the hope for more.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is nothing exciting about peace. Nevertheless, it is that which is life – not the kind of life though that appears to have an end. It has no beginning or end and thus no size. And as excitement always is evoked by something definable, that is expected to give you lasting happiness when it is achieved in the future, there is no excitement in peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

As peace is that which is one, and as that which is you is no different from that which is one, it is found when nobody is looking for it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What is said in this article about excitement also applies to hope. Peace leaves you nothing to hope for.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When not rushing around to get excited about this and that, boredom will reveal the peace of that which is.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you are not looking for excitement you do not need to look for ways to relax.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Excitement is based on the idea, that there must be more than that which is one. But no matter how excited or high you get, it is not enough. Any excitement or state of mind will enhance your motive of looking for excitement, namely to be or have more, so any achievement motivates you to look for more.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To be connected is an imagination based on the belief in separation, as you are imagining a connection to something separated from you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Most persons, who consider themselves spiritual, agree that the world is in the eye of the beholder. If so, it seems those persons are fucked up, because they always complain about the world, and say it is missing something or something should be changed, so that there can be peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Peace needs nothing because it is formless and therefore endless, so it is everything. And so is that which is you, since there is no more than peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Peace has no privacy because it is without knowledge, consciousness and everything else that requires more than one.

When you believe to be someone definitive, you expect to be in a constant state of excitement. To feel excited, however, you must also be willing to feel bored, because if excitement is not contrasted you will not know when you feel it.

But as you always are on a quest for more excitement in order to hide, that believing to be someone definitive is very boring, you do not have time to be bored. Hence no matter how much you look for something to give you a kick, you find nothing.

And yet you do. That is if you recognise you find nothing, as this cannot be sensed without sensing the contrast of it, namely everything.

And having everything, there is no more to look for. Neither is there someone definitive to do so, since everything is that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. And that is nothing but peace.

Hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality is not meant to stop you from being excited, not even from desiring it. Nothing in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is about stopping or avoiding anything in order to get better, because nothing in it is about getting better, but about undoing the belief that you are someone definitive.

This happens if you look at the excitement and everything else as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience something like that, namely that which is one because when everything is a symbol of the same, their apparent difference makes no difference.

Hence the basis for the belief in separation is gone and without it, you cannot be someone definitive. So by applying this hack, you can feel excited without enhancing the belief in being someone definitive, and hence the suffering it entails.

In other words, you can have fun appearing as someone definitive, while at the same time undoing the belief, that you are someone at all so that it becomes exciting undoing the belief that there is anything to be excited about.


NOTES:

  • Peace cannot be found and neither is it necessary, since that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is one, and as formlessness is endless there is no more than oneness, and therefore nothing to disturb its eternal peace. In other words, only someone who wants to hide the formlessness of oneness has an answer to this question or other questions like ´who am I´.
