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.

Everything that appears to be more than one is an illusion

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

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

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

ch08_04-660x313

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There is no world. It is a deception.

There is no world. It is a deception.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • The answer to how many black dots there are in the above image is that there are none. So if you see any, you believe to be someone in a world that is not there.
