´The empty breath´ is empty space and so is what you believe to be [draft]

What you believe to be and see is nothing but empty space. Thus not being and seeing something specific is a blissful revelation of emptiness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The empty breath is not part of the experiences of you being someone substantial in a tangible world, which the brain fabricates by twisting nothing into something (read more about that here). This is because the nothingness of the empty breath has not been twisted into something by the brain. That does not mean the empty breath is spiritual but that it remains in the nothingness from where the brain creates a world of something. Thus connecting with the empty breath, going to that which is spiritual, namely the formlessness of oneness, is a journey without distance.

The only reason we believe the experiences created by the brain are real and not fantasy is that they seem to confirm we are somebody and not nobody. Hence it is only the desire to be somebody, that seems to disguise that we are nothing processed by the brain into something.

Since it has taken the brain one second to fabricate the experience of what you believe to be and read right now, and it has made it from out of nothing, there was not something one second ago, and since that is where the empty breath resides, you connect with it by not perceiving the present experience as something which takes you back one second in time to where there is nothing because the brain has still not twisted it into the current experience of something.

In the rhythmic flow of nothing, the basic contrast making up the consciousness of you as someone definitive, namely expansion and contraction, is cancelled out (read more about the cancellation of contrasts here), so although the experiences fabricated by the brain, as if nothing is something, goes on, as usual, there is nobody to perceive the experiences as something. Read about the indifference of the empty breath here. In the next article, you can read how it feels.

Science states, the world we seem to feel and see consists of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and as immaterial as a dream, is what we perceive to be elements of matter making up a world defined by time and space. See the articles Where to find the bliss of ´the empty breath´ and Free to float in the void of ´the empty breath´.

The brain, however, falls apart after 20 minutes, 45 at most (read more about that here) without someone confirming the experiences it fabricates to be something. So if you want to be able to return to the experience fabricated by the brain of you as someone in a world defined by time and space, you must leave this state of not-knowing before the brain falls into a coma. This you do by confirming you are separated from others, for example by sending love and healing to them. Read more about that here.

It is not possible to be someone definitive, because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Should you wonder who does this or who are wondering about it, the answer is nobody, because there is nobody in empty space. Just like there is nobody in a dream and not somebody making it. Nor is the dream inside the one appearing to experience it because it consists of nothing. Read more about that here.

To make long short, what and where you believe to be is a construction of thoughts, that, just like a mirage, is experienced to be something until you get closer and see it is nothing. This look you get when with the empty breath because it sees what it is itself, namely nothing.

That is why it is best not to interpret the location and feel of the empty breath, as described in the next article, What does ´the empty breath´ feel like, as definitive. The empty breath is not definable by time and space and thus not something specific located in a definitive place you can feel in a categorical way (see the paragraph The transparent sound of the empty breath in the next article What does ´the empty breath´ feels like?).

Also, be aware that the description of the empty breath in that article is written by someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one. This means, that just like the concepts of the world in a game like Monopoly are acknowledged but not believed to be real, the experience of a tangible world in empty space is acknowledged but not perceived to be substantial because there is nothing else than the formlessness of oneness. Thus it is best to perceive the explanations in the next article of where the empty breath as metaphors for nowhere.


The graphic, which is grabbed from the web, has been manipulated by Alexius.

In the next article you can read more detailed about the circles in this image, that graphically illustrates a few of the non-definitive rings that you are surfing within the empty breath, when connected with it.

None of those, though, are outside of you as in this image, which rather reflects the idea the special self has of the empty breath, namely that it is something it can control and, therefore, exploit. Read more about the special self here.

But no matter what kind of self you believe to be, you do not exist and thus have nothing to control or let go off, because that which is one is formless and therefore endless and it takes more than one to exist somewhere. This applies to the empty breath, as well but since it does not believe to anywhere or have any intention of taking you somewhere, it is your way back to the formlessness of oneness.

Not in the sense that it helps you realise oneness. That is not possible, since it takes more than to realise something. But when every single memory of a world where there seems to be more than one is gone, which it is after 20 minutes, 45 at most, in a state of not-knowing (read more about that here), there does not appear to be something hiding that there never was or will be more than that which is one.

Notes on perceptions

When no experiences are judged as something, there is nothing to be excited about. Hence there is no expectation of something to prevent the bliss of nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from having read hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you perceive your reaction to any experience as ´it is what it is,´ you are in sync with the brain’s script. But if you start to analyse your response and conclude, ´I know what it is,´ you are out of sync with the script because you do not know what it is. Read about the brain’s script in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There is no meaning to be found in your experiences, nor are they yours. This is an illusion created by the brain, which generates all experiences to make the self it has fabricated believe that it sees, hears, feels and tastes something outside of itself. It is easy to deceive the self into believing it experiences something outside of itself because if not, there is nothing to confirm its existence.

The experiences you believe in having will continue as scripted by the brain, regardless of how you perceive them. But since the brain injects you with shots of happiness for supporting it with a perception aligned with its script, it is in your own best interest to be in sync with the brain as long as you partake in its game of being somebody.

If you do not mind being nobody, you perceive the experiences it produces as ´dunno what it is.´ Hence you enter into a state of not-knowing and its bliss of nothing. This does not mean that the brain’s script changes but that you are indifferent to it because there is no need to be confirmed as somebody.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The more you perceive an experience as ´it is what it is,´ the more carefree you feel. Perhaps so much that your perception automatically changes to ´dunno what it is,´ which may bring about glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one. Read here how to see, hear, feel or taste glimpses of enlightenment.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since non-duality is formless and therefore without beginning and end, it is everything. However, this does not mean it includes the experience of duality. On the contrary, formlessness cannot be experienced, so everything experienced is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You do not have to use the exact same words for the perceptions mentioned in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end to participate in the game of duality, deny it, take a break, or totally forget it. Instead of saying ´it is what it is,´ you could say ´shit happens,´ or ´so what.´. As long as the essence is alike, they work the same. That being said, the perception ´I know what it is´ only works in the sense that it makes you feel special. You are still what and where the brain wants you to be, which you do not try to change when you go with the perception, ´it is what it is

Choosing the perception ´dunno what it is,´ you leave the brain´s script behind. Not in a sense that you are not what and where the brain has planned, but you do not perceive your experience of it as something since you are in the bliss of nothing.

Read more about the perceptions it is what it is, I know what it is and dunno what it is in hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

To uphold the perception ´I know what it is,´ you got to suppress your actual response to an experience. The two other perceptions do not involve denial. On the contrary, your response to something cannot be perceived as ´it is what it is´ or ´dunno what it is´ if you deny it. The perception ´I know what it is´ never works as intended because you are not all-seeing and knowing.

And the two other perceptions do not work if your intention is to get something over and done with. However, this can be solved by perceiving the response to your plan as ´it is what it is.´ That flushes out any idea of achieving something specific. If your response is perceived as ´dunno what it is,´ there is not something to accomplish because you are in the bliss of nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Feeling wrong is our own decision because our emotions are shaped by how we perceive our reaction to an experience. But if you decide not to perceive your reaction as specific, the brain automatically takes over and perceives it as ´it is what it is.´ And since the brain operates in pairs, your reaction is twofold. Therefore, as sadness is paired with happiness, you are never sad but happy/sad. This polarity, like any other, makes you feel complete.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Do not hide your reaction to something by making a story in which you are unimpressed or detached. Instead, feel your response, so you can decide what it means and perceive that as ´it is what is.´ This expands the interpretation of your reaction, so it is not limited to you being angry, for example, but complemented with being calm. Since twofoldness makes you feel fulfilled, you have no urge to uphold a single-minded image of yourself. Thus, sooner or later, you forget what and where you are, which is the invitation the enlightenment of that which is one has been waiting for. Read more about that in hack #6-7.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you believe you suffer because of something, you are mistaken. You suffer because you have perceived your reaction to something, so it makes you feel bad. This is immediately corrected when you perceive feeling bad as ´it is what it is

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When your reaction to something is sadness, and it is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ you also get gladness. First of all, because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, but also because if something has not made you happy at some point, it cannot make you sad. For example, when your cat dies, your sadness is related to the many years of gladness you had when it was alive.

Should you, instead, make the perception ´I know what it is,´ when your cat dies and what you believe to know is that this makes you sad, you must exclude gladness to prove you are only sad. But without gladness, sadness cannot be defined. Therefore, what you believe in knowing that you feel is a thought up idea of sadness. Thus you do not feel sad but fake.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If noisy music from the neighbour makes you feel troubled, it is not because of the music but your specific perception of your reaction to it. Instead, if your response is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ it turns out to be twofold. Hence you feel disturbed as well as stimulated. This interchange of opposites is the duality flow. Read more about that in the following articles.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The stories you make in which you appear to know everything sooner or later clash with the actual experiences of the world where you seem to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Just like the twofoldness of breathing in and out makes you feel alive, you feel fulfilled when psychological pairs of duality, such as love and hate, dynamically interact with each other. However, this interaction takes away the sense of control. Thus most separate hate from love by projecting a romanticised version of love on somebody and hatred on somebody else or a vulnerable part of their own body. Insisting on this division, they miss the joy of togetherness because it does not come from a singular but dualistic feeling.

They get the joy of closeness when what they have decided to be the meaning of hatred is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ because that undo the separation of love and hate. For example, if they have classified hate as weakness, this perception reveals it is paired with strength. Since this polarity, like any other, brings about the relaxation of duality, they may not notice this change. But, for sure, they observe there is no need to hold onto a pretty image of love outside of themselves by hiding hatred in your body.

This sets others free from your romanticised projections of love. And your body stops defending itself against your hateful attitude towards it. Thus the body parts you kept tight to hide feelings of hatred there are healed by the dynamic interaction of love and hate. 

If those parts are in pain from physical illness as well, they must be attended to materially. Perhaps with the help of a health care professional. However, when the body is not occupied by fending off your psychological issues, it is often capable of being restored by the biological system governed by the brain. That is why physical illness starts with withdrawing the non-physical matters you have projecting onto it. Read more about psychosomatic disorders in hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Everything in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is fictitious. There is no similarity to reality because that is non-dual, and it takes more than one to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. However, since they do not claim to be real, you are exposed as unreal when reading them. Hence, the more you do that, the less there is someone to judge these words to differs from the reader, wherefore there is no duality to hide reality is non-dual.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you feel sad and do not experience the gladness inside it, you have chosen to perceive your reaction to something as ´I know what it is instead of ´it is what it is.´ Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you perceive a singular opinion of yours as ´it is what it is,´ it reveals itself to be twofold. And since you appear to be in a world of duality, and everything in such a world operates in pairs, you feel complete. If this is perceived to be good enough, every moment is the perfect moment. Nothing is wrong or missing. Read more about that in hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

From this follows that if you do not feel complete, you have been messing with the pairs of duality by perceiving their parts as definitive. Since that is your own choice, you can undo it and feel complete. Read more about choosing in hack #2.2 Choosing or not. Having done that a few times, you have established every moment is the perfect moment regardless of what and where you appear to be. In other words, if your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, you do not wait for a better moment. This one is perfect as it is.

Since that means you never wait for something better, the continuation of duality, eventually, comes to an end. Thus duality does not appear to be hiding, there never was or will be anything but non-duality since it is formless and therefore endless.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

A feeling can only be known when explained. And since that makes it mental, you are benumbed when your perception is ´I know what it isTo make up for that, you enhance this perception with stories of a better future.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To perceive anything as ´I know what it is,´ is as crazy as thinking you know where you are in a dream. You are nowhere but in your bed.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self always makes an explanation that seems to confirm the perception ´I know what it is.´ This enhances its conditioned way of viewing the world and the fear of being wrong. But if you do not try to explain anything, you never need to correct or deny something to maintain you are right. ´It is what it is,´ so you have nothing to worry about.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you do not identify yourself as definitive but relative to the present moment, there is no need to make specific opinions to confirm you are someone definitive. Thus every moment is the perfect moment. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Since your internal comments about the world in most cases are singular and thus cut off from their complementary part, you appear to judge yourself and others as incomplete. Hence you get the urge to improve something to feel complete.

Yet it is nobody but yourself who has made the single-minded comments that seem to establish what you and others can do. Fortunately, these rules do not need to be identified to set yourself and others free from your confinement. Instead, you simply perceive your present opinion about something, for example what you read, as ´it is what it is.´ That reveals your comment is not singular but twofold, which, ln a world of duality, is completeness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a video game, everything is predetermined. No matter what you choose to do, the subsequent events have already been arranged, likewise, in a world of duality. You can choose between different stories going on inside your head. Regardless of which one you settle for, the next step is decided in advance by the brain. It cannot be changed. You can, however, choose how to perceive your reaction to that step.

When you choose to perceive your response as ´it is what it is,´ it is experienced to be two-fold, and since you are in a world of duality, the result is satisfaction. But if you perceive your reaction as ´I know what it is,´ it seems singular and, therefore, incompatible with duality. Hence you do not feel satisfied but frustrated by duality. Unfortunately, most think the solution is to get rid of duality. Yet, it is the other way around.

Playing the game of duality, you confirm non-duality because it is formless and therefore endless, so it must be the reason for the experience of duality. And also, the reason, duality is not real. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Not storing thoughts and feelings in the body or projecting them onto the world, they are experienced to be in you and yet nowhere in particular. Therefore, as you do not seem to be defined by them, you are not stuck as someone definitive in a world of duality. This does not mean you need to bring back all the thoughts and feelings you have disassociated yourself from. The willingness to do so is sufficient. This is set forth by perceiving your reaction to any present thought or feeling as ´it is what it is

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end uses the perceptions ´I know what it is´ vs ´it is what it is´ vs ´dunno what it is.´ HACK #3 Not being exclusive but inclusive is freedom from being someone definitive uses the perception ´it is included.´ It is similar to ´it is what it is´ in the sense that it is based on the experience of duality. But since all parts of the present moment are perceived as ´it is included,´ their apparent differences do not seem to make a difference. Thus every moment is the perfect moment.

Since ´dunno what it is´ ignores duality, it leads to a state of not-knowing. But ignoring duality, you do not last as someone in a world of duality for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most. So if you want to go on as if you are someone, better go with the duality flow, which is revealed by the perception ´it is what it is.´

A perfect moment, brought about by the perception ´it is included,´ is, like ´it is what it is,´ based on the acknowledgement of duality. Hence, contrary to a state of not-knowing, it lasts as long as it takes. In other words, a perfect moment is not measured by time but by inclusiveness. This makes you feel relieved. On the other hand, you feel vitalised by the twofoldness in the duality flow. See In the duality flow, you do not feel something specific. After all, it is the duality flow.

However, if you read hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment, there is nothing about the perception ´it is included.´ Alexius did not use this approach to a perfect moment when he originally wrote about it. But he will most likely update the hack by the end of 2021.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

´I know what it is´ vs ´it is what it is´ vs ´dunno what it is´ PART 1

Suppose you perceive yourself to be on top of it and know what is going on. In that case, try to perceive you do not understand what is going on. Then see which of the perceptions make the body relax. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from having read hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When the brain´s script is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ your feelings are not excluded but included. This perception, therefore, is not a way to the dullness of detachment but the vitality of involvement. It is as close as one can get to the nothingness from where the brain has scripted its story of duality while still appearing to be somebody. Not as close though as the perception ´dunno what it is,´ because it exposes all experiences of something as nothing.

That is why you get the bliss of nothing from perceiving an experience as ´dunno what it is,´ whereas you get the sadness of something from ´I know what it is,´ and the happiness of duality from ´it is what it is

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The stories the special self makes up about its greatness are not always consistent. Thus it often feels disorganised and wishes to be like those it perceives as organised. On the other hand, the basic self has no need to be anything other than in sync with the stream of thoughts coming from the brain by perceiving its reaction to the flow as ´it is what it is.´

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When experiences are perceived as ´it is what it is,´ there is no need to make something go away. But when the perception is ´I know what it is,´ everything unknown must be avoided to keep the feeling on top of it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It feels like something is missing when you perceive your reaction to an experience as ´I know what it is,´ as the perception is based on excluding what you cannot explain. Instead, if an experience is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ you feel complete because this perception is all-inclusive. The perception, ´dunno what it is,´ nor exclude or include something. Thus you are in the bliss of nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self does not want to perceive the experience of itself as ´it is what it is.´ Instead, it wants to change it into something imagined to make itself more beautiful than others, even though it feels ugly. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The basic self and the special one are bound to follow the GPS coordinates it gets from the brain without making any side trips of their own. They do not have the power to change the journey – only how to perceive it. Their perception of that, though, is very different. The basic self basically perceives everything as ´it is what it is,´ and the special one as ´I know what it is.´

That is why it is easy for the basic self to be someone and hard work for the special one. It has to make a special perception of each experience, reflecting that ´I know what it is

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Only the brain can make you feel good enough because nobody else knows what you are. To get its approval, all you need is to perceive your reaction to the experience it processes of you in a world where there seems to be more than one as ´it is what it is´. Actually, you do not even have to do that. If you do not try to interfere in the brain’s workings, it automatically makes this perception.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You feel happy when your reaction to the experience the brain makes for you is perceived as ´it is what it is´ because that reveals it is twofold, wherefore you are in sync with the brain´s script of duality.

But suppose you, in an attempt to be free and independent of the brain, make a perception of your response based upon the concepts of capitalism, socialism or spiritualism, for example. In that case, you are out of sync with the brain and thus the world because your experience of it is produced by the brain. Hence everything appears to be very complicated and not straightforward, as if your reaction is perceived as ´it is what it is

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since making a specific perception takes a long time, it can be delayed and, consequently, out of sync with the present moment. The frustration that this entails only worsens if you try to solve it by using more time to process your experience. In contrast, using the brain´s default perception, ´it is what it is,´ you are in sync with the present moment. Hence everything feels good.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

What is Wincent thinking about? Alexius cannot really know, but he becomes stressed from trying to make it true if he reckons that he does. But, on the other hand, if he perceives his reaction to Wincent as´ it is what it is,´ there is nothing to prove and thus no stress. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

For many years of Alexius´cats, called Wincent, has more or less had the same routine. Every morning, he leaves the house very early and comes back when Alexius is still in bed. First, Wincent says something. Then he lays down next to Alexius and waits for him to get out of bed and give him some food. At least that is the obvious conclusion to take based on the past because as soon as Alexius takes the first step out of bed, Wincent runs out in the kitchen where he, with big eyes, sits and waits for Alexius to give him food.

If Alexius, therefore, believes he knows what is going on, he goes from the perception of the basic self, which is ´it is what it is,´ to the perception of the special self, ´I know what it is.´ Doing that, he most likely stresses to get out of bed and feed his beloved cat, although this is not going to happen any sooner than if he as the basic self had perceived ´it is what it is´ because the brain´s script runs its course, no matter how he perceives it.

In other words, when you stick to the perception of the basic self, your life seems to be taken care of, and you can relax. But having the perception of the special self, you feel stressed because you believe you are in charge of your life.

There is a third option, to become selfless. This is brought about when you choose the perception ´dunno what it is´ because it brings you in a state of not knowing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When your reaction to something in the body is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ there is not something specific to bother or amuse you. Hence you are free to go with the flow of thoughts as it comes from the brain. In other words, you are in the happiness that comes from being synced with the brain´s script.

But when you perceive what you feel in the body as ´I know what it is,´ you are not in sync with the flow of thoughts as it goes ahead, as nothing in the brain´s script of duality is definitive. Everything comes in pairs of opposites. So being specific, you are in the misery of being someone definitive who claims to know something specific.

If how you react to something in the body is perceived as ´dunno what it is,´ you are not in the misery of being out of sync with the brain´s script because you do not know of a body that feels something. Consequently, you are in the bliss of nothing.

If what you do is not making you feel good, it does not indicate that you should do something else but be aligned with what you do. This you become if you perceive your reaction to it as ´it is what it isPhoto © Alexius Jorgensen.

The basic self does not perceive triumph and disaster to be equally entertaining. Yet, this is precisely what they are if one of them is perceived as ´ it is what it is´ because it reveals there is no triumph without disaster and vice versa.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The special self constructs a perception of every experience, so it does not seem to endanger its default assumption, ´I know what it is.´ Hence it can go on believing it is in control. But since that is a lie, it is bound to suffer emotionally, mentally and physically.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You do not try to be someone definitive in a dream but naturally, go with the flow. And if you, in retrospect, do not try to arrange your memories of a dream, so it seems coherent and meaningful, you are ready to remain in a state of constant change instead of being someone definitive.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The basic self does not assume something will go on in a specific way because every experience is perceived as ´it is what it is.´ Thus getting old and unable to do the things you were used to doing is not a loss.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When every feeling is perceived as ´it is what it is,´ no emotion needs to be escaped. Thus you are at peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since the perception, ´it is what it is,´ arises from not focusing on something specific, the technique for the taste of life will get you there if used gently. Applied more passionately, you get the perception ´dunno what it is.´ See Perceiving the world as symbols of the four aspects of enlightenment – or how to have glimpses of enlightenment.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Nobody, nor Alexius, is solely the basic self. The special self will exploit the innocence of the basic self if it does not appear to be in the game of being special. Fortunately, none of this matters to the basic self because it perceives its reaction to everything as ´it is what it is.´ Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you perceive a movie as cheap because it uses furniture from Ikea, you are probably out of sync with the plot. Hence it does not seem entertaining, which it does when your perception is in sync with the story. This, however, does not mean you must do something about your condemnation of Ikea to get in sync with the script of the movie. All you need is to perceive your reaction to the furniture from Ikea as ´it is what it is.´ Doing that, it is revealed to be twofold, wherefore there is not a specific response to prevent you from being in sync. Hence both the script and your misperception of it seems enjoyable. Likewise, when you perceive your reaction to the brain´s manuscript as ´it is what it is

If you internally or externally had reacted to the movie as indicated by the director´s use of dramatic music, for example, you would automatically be in sync with the plot and feel entertained by it. The same applies to the brain´s script. Not perceiving your reaction to it as ´I know what it is but ´it is what it is,´ you are in sync with its ups and downs. Thus you feel them equally entertaining.

And nobody can remain in a state of not-knowing for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, at a time if they want to continue as someone substantial in a tangible world. Read more about the duration of a state of not-knowing in the article To be in sync with the natural flow of thoughts

Roughly speaking, the perception of the special self is ´I know what it is´. In contrast, the basic self sticks to the perception automatically generated by the brain, which basically says ´it is what it is.´ The non-self in a state of not-knowing simply says ´dunno what it is´ because it does not perceive the apparent differences in the experiences produced by the brain to make a difference.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When the perception of your response to an experience created by the brain is ´I know what it is,´ you feel important but also exhausted because much energy is required to uphold this perception. Hence the special self always needs more power, whereas the basic self needs nothing for its perception ´it is what it is.´ So even though it is dependent on the brain, it feels free.

Science says what we seem to feel and see consist of 99.9999999 per cent empty space. And the rest, despite it also is empty space and just like a dream does not contain anything substantial, is what we perceive as elements of matter making up a tangible world.

If the basic self changes its perception to ´dunno what it is,´ no definitions hold it back from seeing, it is nothing twisted by the brain into something, wherefore it is nobody in the bliss of nothing. You can read about this state of not-knowing in the below hacks

The basic self is in sync with the brain´s script, which contains every possible experience. Hence the basic self is in the past as well as the future and everywhere else but the formlessness of oneness because it cannot be experienced.

Being everywhere but in that which is one, the basic self is nowhere. Thus all it needs to cross the apparent barrier to that which is one is not choosing to do this or anything else because only in a world where there seems to be more than one can you choose to cross something.

If you believe there is more than one, everything requires at least two

It takes two to define a person in the world.

It takes two to be defined as different, but it also takes two to see that differences do not make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
It takes two to become enlightened. »When your eyes become single your whole body shall be full of light«, Jesus said. And it takes two to appear as someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

It takes two to make a difference. Both the positive pole and the negative one is needed to produce electricity.

It takes two to see, that differences do not make a difference.

Everything in a world, where there seems to be more than one. requires the involvement of at least two appearances. You cannot appear to be someone without being defined by someone appearing to be different, and there cannot be a world without someone to define it.

In reality, there is no more than that which is one, but as the world where you appear to be is based on the idea that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, to come back to reality you have to start off as if you are more than one.

The person you appear to be in the world cannot be in the virtual world of a game like Super Mario, so to participate in it you pretend to be there. That, however, does not make the virtual world – or your appearance there – real. On the contrary, what and where you pretend to be you are not.

In the same manner, nothing can make the oneness of that which is you real in a world where there seems to be more than one. That which is you is not ´there´. It is something you pretend and no matter how good you are at it and whatever you pretend to be it is not real – this includes pretending to be spiritual, Buddha and whatnot.

No words like higher, realised and spiritual, that seem to value you as someone more evolved and better than others, will make you into anything else than what you already is in the world where there seems to be more than one, namely an illusion.

If you pretend to be a black car in the world of Monopoly, what you pretend to be is an illusion regardless you go to prison, own many houses or not. There can be many changes in a game, but it does not change, that you are not there. You only appear to be there. Neither does anything change if you pretend to be the white car instead.

To not focus on anything in particular.

To bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one, when appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you must overlook the differences of its appearances. Not by perceiving them as one. On the contrary. Separation – and not oneness – is the nature of the world.

So if you see them one by one without focusing on anyone, in particular, their apparent differences make no difference, and as they become the same so do your two eyes and as one eye they fill your whole body with light.

This is a poetic description of the enlightenment of that which is one. Practically speaking it might be more correct to say, that when differences make no difference you do not need the function of two eyes, which is to make the world dimensional. One eye – often referred to as the third eye and energetically speaking located on top of the eyebrows in between the two eyes – is enough for the enlightenment of that which is one, because oneness has no dimensions.

In other words, the enlightenment of that which is one is not possible with two eyes. They must be closed so that the dimensional world experienced with the external senses is not seen. Well, it is not so much the eyes that must be closed, but your attention towards the world they seem to see.

In the enlightenment of that which is one, there is literally nothing to see. If there is, you have not been blinded by the brightness of the enlightenment of that which is one, but fenced it off so all what you get is glimpses of it, which often is confused with the enlightenment of that which is one.

Many so-called spiritual teachers claim, that there is a real you to be revealed, when you get rid of the ego. But as it requires more than one to get rid of something, and as there is no more than that which is one, getting rid of anything is an illusion.

Most of those, who talk about enlightenment does not know what it is. They are just as eager as everybody else in the world of the outward-facing senses to be acknowledged as someone definitive, so even though the only cause of suffering is the belief in being someone definitive, their teachings are not about undoing this belief, but getting rid of the ego, the past, the future and whatnot.

The world of the outward-facing senses consist of one percent energy and 99 per cent empty space. In other words, there is nobody there.

It is very beautiful with the light of the sun coming through the clouds, but it has nothing to do with enlightenment. It is just another sight in the world, that is just as virtual as the so-called egoless states the gurus and their followers are dreaming about.

It is very beautiful with the light of the sun coming through the clouds, but it has nothing to do with enlightenment. It is just another sight produced by the senses to make your excitement about proving you are someone real in a world, that actually is nothing but make-believe. The same applies to the excitement of the so-called egoless states the gurus and their followers are dreaming about. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

They tell you, that your suffering will stop when their teachings have transformed you into someone better and more spiritual. But as being transformed requires more than one, it enhances the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one instead of undoing it.

Gurus are no different from you, though they like to show off as if they have a higher consciousness. But to have something requires more than one – and there is no more than that which is one.

The idea that enlightenment results in you being wiser, at one with everything, without thoughts or detached from them is solely speculative – an idle hope that the fabrication of such a super person based on the illusion of being someone specific will prove that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

The enlightenment of that which is one does not result in anything. Least of all being at one with everything because in reality there is no more than that which is one and therefore nothing to be at one with. Besides results are of a world experienced by the senses and the enlightenment of that which is one is not. It cannot be sensed, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to sense something.

t1larg.laptop.light.tsPART 2:
The visual aspect of enlightenment of that which is one can be compared to closing all apps on a computer including the one simulating the desktop. Without the appearance of a desktop, there is nothing to hide the light, that is used to simulate a world on the screen.

The aspect of enlightenment of that which is one, that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises, can be compared to the humming from the fan or the engine in a computer. You can hear this vibration all the time – especially if you do not look at the screen or listen to the sounds of the world simulated by the computer.

Though the light behind the desktop and the distant humming are the means for fabricating a simulated reality on the computer screen, they are not part of this simulated world, so if you want to see or hear what is powering the world that appears on the screen, you must do what is needed to stop that world.

This is a metaphor to say that you have to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one in order not to hide the enlightenment of that which is one, that is already there.

PART 3:
The apparent power of the ego comes from the mutual agreement, that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of that which is one. But as any belief requires more than one and therefore enhances the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, believing to be on a spiritual path is to follow what one is supposed to escape, namely the ego.

Alexius is the non-teacher of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, but he is also its non student – and vice versa. No others are needed in order to undo of the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Yet being and having more than that which is one is not possible, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one. It seems, however, possible to believe that it is possible to be and have more than the formlessness of oneness and that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. In order to hold this belief together, everybody must agree to it, because it only takes one to undo the belief that there is more than that which is one.

When believing to be someone definitive, you all the time need the experience of others. Whether they appear to be in an online, physical or astral world does not actually matter, because the experience of them is manufactured by the brain, that is conditioned in accordance with the belief, that you are someone definitive.

If you need time to process this, you consent to the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, because processing something as well as taking your time requires more than one. For the same reason, there is no support to get in undoing the belief, that there is more than that which is one.


NOTES:

Strangers in the Night

The world is fabricated by bits and pieces.

The world is fabricated by bits and pieces, that you put together in such a way, that you seem to someone specific, who is part of something special. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In old scriptures, being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is often compared to being in a world of darkness. If they meant it literally, Alexius do not know, but he knows there is no light in a world where there seems to be more than one coming from the stars, the sun or anything else. It is something we have learned to imagine so that we can navigate in a world of darkness. His below story is illustrating this:

Fabricating my world in the darkness
There are no streetlights outside my home, so when I wake up in the middle of the night, the only thing to ´light´ up my bedroom is the stars or the moon. One may, therefore, conclude, it is impossible for me to find the way to the toilet unless I use a torch or turn on the electric light.

Yet it is easy for me to find the way without the help of electrical light because I have learned where everything is and can use certain things as navigation points so that they seem to ´light´ up the way. It is all imagined though and put together by trial and error. I actually stumbled quite a few times learning to ´see´ the way.

But I cannot ´see´ anything else in the night than the way, I have fabricated to the toilet because I have not learned to ´see´ more than that. Maybe I will learn ´seeing´ beyond this if I study how to do that. But what I learn to ´see´ beyond my way to the toilet will just be another fabrication, as the rooms next to my bedroom are also completely in the dark.

The way from my bed to the toilet can be compared to everybody´s way in a world where there seems to be more than one. You seem to see something and then navigate from that to what you interpret as something else. But you are moving in the dark, and whatever you think you see is an image, that you have learned to perceive as if it is the reality. Without this fantasy, there is nothing to see. Neither is there anything hidden or something to be learned except, that it is all an illusion.

What is fabricated does not exist
When you do not care to find your way through the darkness, all that you had imagined there will disappear – also darkness, which is just as imagined. And without this imagination – or rather the belief in it – there is nothing but unimaginable light. Not a light like that can be compared to the sun or similar artificial sources of light. And not a light that lights up something to see. There is nothing to light up.

Everything is one light. When the enlightenment of that which is one is bid welcome, the belief that there is something to see cannot survive. And when there is nothing to see, there is not something to hide that which is one.

You can compare bidding welcome the enlightenment of that which is one to a video call to that which is one. There is so much light on the video screen, that you cannot see it, neither the world, until you hang up the phone, and find yourself back in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you remember, there is no more than that which is one and that it is no different from that which is you, so it is not possible to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet you can pretend to be ´there´.

In other words, you pretend to be someone definitive, but what you pretend to be, you are not. That which is you is the formlessness of oneness.

Kind regards
Alexius

Beyond the senses – or the outward-facing senses versus the inward ones

Those who hear or feel the humming coming from far away as an echo of that which is one cannot use it to make themselves or the world better. But they will be used as a door to close the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one, so there is no experience to hide that which is one. This does not mean they will be transformed, as that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Neither does it mean that they will cease to exist, because they have never existed since there is no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
If a world where seems to be more than one is not real but that which I am is, it is not possible to be in such a world. Yet it is possible to pretend being ´there´. This is to say that most of the below article is written within the framework of pretending to be someone ´there´, so the experiences described in it – for example that the Earth stopped moving – is just as illusionary as any other experience in a virtual world.

Beyond the senses – or the outward-facing senses versus the inward ones
The first time the world stood still was in my teen years. I looked out the window and everything was covered by snow. It was like the whiteness outside of me turned everything white inside me while Donovan gently was singing Jennifer Juniper.

I forgot to participate in the story of time and space, so the Earth stopped moving and the air was so thin, that there was no space between anything. Music was coming out of my speakers, yet the silence was so loud, that all I heard was the echo of that which is one.

Much later on a walk along the sea, the echo of that which is one was there again – and not so much later, when I was walking on a pedestrian street busy handing out flyers, the distant echo of that which is one was so intense, that even though people were moving on the street, there was no movement and no people. Do not know what there was – it did not seem tangible.

After being accustomed to hearing the echo of that which is one, I realised that this distant humming is what the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise,* and that the reason people even after years of chanting or contemplating do not hear it is that they are waiting for those words to reveal a higher understanding. But there is no understanding to be revealed, neither is there any need for that, when you actually hear the distant humming, that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolises.

_IGP6225-Edit

You can only hear the music from the guitar on this image by imagining it because there is no real guitar in the image – it is a symbol. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The echo of that which is one
The word guitar is a symbol of something, that can make amazing sounds. Yet the word cannot make those sounds. Actually, there is no way to know what a guitar sounds like when you read the word guitar if you have not already heard what it is a symbol of.

It is a little bit the same with the words symbolising the distant humming of that which is one – and then again it is not exactly the same. A guitar can produce something, but the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God* symbolises cannot produce anything. It can be compared to the sound of a vacuum cleaner, which does not vacuum clean. It is just there when the vacuum cleaner is turned on.

Likewise, the humming, that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God* symbolises, is an echo ´hanging in the air´, when the imagination of a world where life is divided into more than one is turned on. The humming is the engine of such a world – not in the way that it produces it, but in the way that it is the energy, that makes it possible to imagine that you are someone specific in a world where there seems to be more than one.

When everything you know is undone, there is peace
It is not accidentally, that it is a vacuum cleaner that is used in the above description. The humming of that which is one is to be compared to a subtle version of the sound from a vacuum cleaner or the sound from the ventilation in a big place like an airport, or the fusion of all sounds in the world, or the sound at the edge of the breath (not the sound of breathing in, neither of breathing out, but at the edge of it – or rather on the top of it).

If you are into becoming famous or rich or making the world a better place according to a specific belief, this vibration is not for you. It has no power to change anything. It knows of nothing to make better. On the contrary. Everything conceivable is undone, which leaves nothing but that which is one. In other words, there is peace, because it takes more than one to not be at peace.

The enlightenment of that which is one versus glimpses of it
Apart from the last two sentences in the above paragraph, this article has not been about the enlightenment of that which is one. It cannot be heard, as that is an experience and it requires more than one to experience something. What I have been talking about is the experience of having glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one in the form of hearing the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises, which we can have when the definable world of the outward-facing senses become so distant that the distant humming from the edge of the universe is the nearest to us.

To hear or feel the distant humming, that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises is one aspect of experiencing glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one. The other aspects are to have amazing visions of light, the crispness of ethereal harmonies or the sweetness of oneness. The world of the outward-facing senses is very focused on visual impact, so you may only have heard of the visual aspect of the enlightenment of that which is one.

Those glimpses are revealed by the inward-facing senses when the ones are partly closed. In the world of the inward-facing senses though there is only one of everything, so there is just one eye, one ear and so on, and they are not physically tangible.

As long you are experiencing the enlightenment of that which is one in one of its aspects, you are having glimpses of it, but if you stop perceiving them as if they can be defined like this or that way, there is nothing to define you as an experiencer, and so there is not someone definitive experiencing them, and so there is no difference between them and you. That is the enlightenment of that which is one.

What is real is never-ending, so all experiences are unreal
Compared to the enlightenment of that which is one or having glimpses of it, living as someone specific in the world of the outward-facing senses feels like a joke – but why not enjoy the joke. There is nothing to lose. As you are not someone definitive, you can pretend to be anybody in the world of the outer senses. If you are into concepts of love, you can perceive the world through such glasses as if everything is love or a cry for love. It is all make-believe so anything will do.

When the world experienced through the outward-facing senses is an illusion, one may conclude, that the world experienced through the inward-facing senses is the real thing. But as what is real never ends, neither the inward nor outward-facing senses are real as all experiences have an end  – including the experiencing glimpses of enlightenment.

The enlightenment of that which is one is a journey without distance from a world where there seems to be more than one into that which is one
Metaphorically speaking you can say, that what you experience via the inward-facing senses is a wall surrounding that which is one. The wall seems to have no substance. Yet it can be seen, heard, felt or tasted, and if you do not try to find order in it or in any way define it, the outward-facing senses have nothing to work with and a door, that looks like a black hole with a thin frame of white light inside it and rapidly spiralling bright light around it, suddenly and very quickly sucks you into it.

There is no other side to this black hole because you have left the oneness of that which is you. You have never been definable or experienced anything. That is an illusion. In reality, that which is you is no different from that which is one – and there is no more than one.

All thoughts appearing to be you have to be left at the moment of death, if it is to serve as a portal to that which is one, so if they are picked up again in order to return to a world where there seems to be more than one, the person you appear to be will not have anything to tell about that which is one, because this person was not there. Yet there often are vague memories of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
I do not know the stories from those telling about their experience of death. Yet I know, that if they have much to say, it is not death but near-death, they are talking about – and that has nothing to do with death. It cannot be experienced, because if you are dead, there is nobody to experience it.

Tunnels of light seem to be a common near-death experience, which often is used to prove, that you are on a spiritual journey. The tunnels of light, however, are just a result of the brain not having enough oxygen to produce the images of a world as you expect to see it, so instead, the brain makes something abstract based on common second-hand knowledge stored in your subconsciousness.

It has nothing to do with spirituality, which is the formlessness of that which is one and consequently cannot be seen, as it requires more than one to see something. That is why the personality at the moment of death metaphorically speaking must be left at the entrance to oneness, so that there is nothing to enter it and therefore no awareness of having been there if the personality is picked up again and again to a body that appears to be you in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The formlessness of oneness has no size – and what is sizeless has no beginning or end. In other words, there is no more than that which is one, so a world where there seems to be more than one does not exist. This cannot be comprehended by those believing to be someone definitive, as to them only what can be measured does exist.

There are, however, vague memories of the formlessness of that which is one, and due to these memories it feels as if dying from a world where there seems to be more than one and return to it again from that which is one is like having the slate wiped clean – or like the machinery of the body, which is the brain, has been rebooted.

First time I thought, I would become like those spaced-out persons considering themselves to be very spiritual. But after each reboot, I reappeared with a much stronger sense of the body – not because I believe to be in it, but because, that which I am is not in the world at all, and knowing that, it is so easy to pretend to be bodily.

I never do anything so-called spiritual. When I wake up in the mornings I go for a long walk, until I come to this point and return back home. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

I never do anything so-called spiritual like for example meditation. When I wake up in the mornings, I go for a long walk from where I often return home around here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no spirituality in a world where there seems to be more than one
At the few so-called spiritual lectures that I have ever attended, the lecturers entertained the audience with stories and conclusions based on a single extraordinary experience from their past, that they seemed to think had changed them into something spiritual. Also based on this experience they seemed to be convinced, that it is possible to fuse physicality and spirituality, which is just as absurd as saying, it is possible to always have day and night at the same time in the same place.

Just like a computer cannot contain the physical world except in a simulated version twisted into two-dimensional or fake 3D images, a world where there seems to be more than one cannot contain that which is one, except in a twisted version of something that appears to be identifiably by what and where it is in time and space. Infinity becomes a thing, that is relative to finite – as if infinity is something extremely big.

Spirituality is the formlessness of that which is one. What is formless is endless. In other words, there is no more than that which is one, so if you are reading this, you must be mistaken. The experience of an article and that you are having it is an illusion. Yet this illusion is only possible to experience due to that which is one, as there is no more than that, so if you stop believing what you experience is real, all that is left is that which is one.

Kind regards
Alexius

NOTE: This article is part of hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is one.

There is nothing real to accomplish

There is nothing real to accomplish in a virtual world. It is all make-believe.

There is nothing real to accomplish in a virtual world. It is all make-believe – including concepts of transformation and whatnot. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1;
If it feels limiting to function as a person in a body, it is not because the world is limited. Actually, it is neither limited or unlimited. The world including the person you appear to be is simply not there. Nothing definable is real. It only seems so, because you believe so

That which is you is no different from life, which is the same as the formlessness of oneness. As it has no size, it is neither big or small and thus invisible in a world where only what is defined by time and space is believed to exist. And they are not wrong, because only what is definable exist. Nevertheless, nothing that exists is real, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one and as it takes more for something to exist, existence is an illusion.

So if you believe to exist, whether as someone so-called spiritual or mundane, this belief just needs to be corrected. Just like – in the context of a world defined by time and space – if you believe to someone in the world of a movie you are, there is nothing you need to escape this world. As you are not there, it is only the belief that you are there, which needs to be undone.

Thus nothing needs to be avoided or achieved, that while you seem to be someone in a world defined by time and space. You just follow its concepts, just like within the concept of this world you do when playing a game like for example Monopoly. No need to change anything. It is all equally unreal and can only be changed or transformed into something else unreal.

Yet you only follow the concepts of a world defined by time and space in order to navigate there, and not to prove it is real. If the latter is the case, time and space feel limiting and you start searching for something larger – like nirvana, heaven and other dreamy states.

There is nothing real to be found in the world of Monopoly. It is all make-believe. The same applies to everything experienced to be in a world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

There is no more to be found
When you play Monopoly there is no more to find there, than what you see on the cardboard. Even if you think you have found a hidden gem in the cardboard, it is as virtual as the rest. The same applies to the world where you believe to be someone definitive. There is nothing real to be found there, no matter how much you search. Neither is it necessary, because just like what you believe to be physically speaking is not in the world of Monopoly, neither is the formlessness of that which is you in a world defined by time and space.

As it takes more than one to transform something real, nothing real can ne transformed as reality is that which is one. So if you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, there is nothing to transform.

There are no higher frequencies to integrate into the body, that will transform you into something that is more real, as it is fashionable to believe nowadays. Just like everything that appears in a movie is virtual no matter colour, speed and you wearing 3D glasses, everything that appears to be the world where you believe to be is worldly – and as the world is no more real than a movie, there is nothing to transform or to perfect – except to become a perfect idiot believing there is something to learn.

What you pretend to be, you are not
The conclusion of the above is not that you should hurry up and get out of a world encapsulated by time and space. Why should you? Time is an illusion and nothing definable is real, so the formlessness of that which is you is not there.

You may act like you are a woman in a world defined by time and space, but it is just something you imagine to be, because that which is you is not something definitive but the formlessness of oneness, and as formlessness is endless there is no world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In a world that is not real, the avoidance of something is just another illusion.

In other words, there is no need to refrain from becoming and having more, while you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Whatever you appear to be can be used to undo the belief in being someone definitive, if it is perceived as something you pretend to be, since what you pretend to be you are not.*

In a world defined by time and space it is all about appearance. A designer would for example never make a square photo with sides that are of equal length, because that does not appear to be square to the human eye. If you want to make it a photo appear to be square, you must make the height of it just a little longer than the width.

The parts of the body – including chakras and whatnot – are instruments for implementing your personality in a world of your choice. The personality – including soul or whatever you imagine having – is a made-up image, you use to differentiate your appearance from other appearances in the world where you seem to be. But as such a world is make-believe, so is your appearance there. In other words, that which is you is not really there. It is just something you pretend.

Reality is that which is one, so there is nothing real to accomplish, as it takes more than one to accomplish something.

Whatever you pretend to be in a world believed to be defined by time and space will have an end, as nothing definable lasts. When and how it ends does not matter though, as that which pretend to appear in a make-believe world is formless and therefore endless.

Reality cannot be seen, as it takes more than one to see something – and reality is that which is one. In other words, everything seen is an illusion. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
In reality, you cannot gain or lose weight or lose. You cannot make more or less of anything, as reality is non-dimensional.

What is real, namely that which is one, has no outside, since there is nothing that is not real. Consequently it is not possible to leave it. Yet it is possible to fantasize about a world, where there seems to be more than one.

What is non-dimensional cannot be defined, because without dimensions there is no differentiation possible. Besides reality is that which is one, and as it takes more than one to define something, there is nothing definable. Yet is possible to believe, that there is a world to be defined by time and space.

To know or to be conscious of something is to not be real
Everybody in a world, where there seems to be more than one, wants to hide the unreality of such a world and that its main purpose is to hide that which is real, so that you can appear to be and have more than that which is one. This nobody wants to be aware of, as that would be the end of the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

In other words, the undoing of the belief that it is possible to be and have more that which is one is the end of what you appear to be, because in reality is formless, so it is not possible to appear as neither someone spiritual or mundane.

What is unreal is unexplainable and so is what is real, because it takes more than one to explain something, and there is no more than that which is one, since it is formless and therefore endless.

It is not possible for someone definable to see the indefinable reality of that which is one. It cannot be seen, as it takes more than one to see something. The same applies to know and being aware or conscious of something.

Consequently, reality does not know about a world where there seems to be more than one. It does not even know how peaceful oneness is or that there is no more than that which is one. But appearing to be in a world, where there seems to be more than one, you can know, it is not peaceful appearing to be and have more that which is one.

The world can be compared to a dream, where things seems to happen without a cause. That is until you analyze it in order to find a meaning. But if you do not believe this analyze, nothing in the dream had a cause, and as there is no effect without a cause and vice versa, nothing in the dream exist. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In a world defined by time and space things happens without no cause – just like in a dream That is until you analyse the dream and believe the results reveals order, meaning and coherence. If you do not believe the results of the analysis, however, nothing in the dream have a cause, and as there is no effect without a cause, the dream just like a world defined by time and space is an illusion. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:
A world defined by time and space is all about getting more space and more time. But in the formlessness of oneness, you cannot get more of anything, because formlessness is endless, so there is no more than that which is one. Hence getting more in a world defined by time and space is an illusion.

It takes more than one to define something, and as reality is that which is one, to define something is only possible if you imagine to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

But when you share the belief of being someone there with others, it seems to be real and to make the formlessness of that which is one unreal. For this to work size is a very important concept. The bigger something seems to be and the more of it there appears to be, the more you can forget that there is no more than formlessness of that which is one.

You do not have to undo the world defined by time and space to experience the formlessness of oneness. First of all, it does not exist, since formlessness is endless. Hence all there is to undo is the belief that you are someone living in a capsule of time and space. Secondly, it is not possible to experience something, since oneness is endless and it takes more than one to experience something.

There is no room for anything definable – including angels and whatnot – in the formlessness of that which is one. This does not mean that there is nothing there. On the contrary. Since formlessness is endless it is everything. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

And the more you are able to slow your perception of yourself as someone definitive via meditation or other relaxation techniques, the more the formlessness of oneness is fenced off, as contrary to the common belief oneness is not stillness but incredible speed. Everything moves so fast, that there is no time but one perpetual present. And as no differentiation is possible due the speed there is no room for someone definitive to experience it.

You cannot stop a world defined by time and space, as it takes more than one to do anything and reality is that which is one. So whatever you do to stop it will enhance the experience of it.

A world defined by time and space cannot hide the formlessness of that which is one, since there is nothing outside of it as formlessness is endless. So if that which is one seems to be hidden, it is because you believe there is more oneness.

Fortunately doing is not the root of the problem, but the belief that anything at all has an effect. If that belief is undone, there is no effect and hence no cause. Thus no world defined by time and space but the formlessness of oneness, which causes nothing, as it takes more than one to caused an effect – and for the same reason is caused by nothing.

Free to be no more than that which is one

To observe is to exclude, which is not possible, as there is no more than that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

To observe is to exclude, which is not possible, as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
The oneness of life is not exclusive but inclusive contrary* to what is called life in a world where there seems to be more than one, as it is based on exclusion. First, you have to exclude the oneness of life by imagining it is possible to be outside of it and from there observe it from different angles so that each angle seems to reveal a different perspective
.

Hence oneness is experienced to be a dimensional world where there appears to be more than one. But as this experience requires constant movement, that excludes what you move away from, there seems to be a past and a future and that things in the past are forever lost.

Yet it is not possible to move or observe anything, as it takes more than one to do so, and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. It is, however, possible to think so.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

You become definable as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one by excluding the experience of such a world from where the experience is fabricated, namely in the mind, so that the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one does not appear to be a fantasy of yours but a fact. But in order to appear as if you are someone there not everything is excluded from what you believe to be you. Actually, you only exclude what is considered as bad, so you appear to be good others to be the bad – except your very special friends.

The only way out is to quit
In order for you to be defined as someone definitive, you exclude what is judged to be bad from your experience of being in a world where there seems to be more than one by blaming it for having caused you to feel bad. Hence whatever is judged to be bad is not your fault but somebody perceived to be outside of you. As this is a confirmation of separation you have hereby fenced off the oneness of life.

But to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, regardless of what you appear to be (so-called spiritual or mundane), because the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, while any appearances in such a world are limited by time and space. You can compare it to playing a game like Monopoly. Driving a car in Monopoly is an illusion because everything in the world of Monopoly is virtual – also if you master this world and win everything.

Stuck inside the world of Monopoly. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When you have taken one round of Monopoly, you are not finished. You keep on doing the exact same round. This is not to be understood as a metaphor for reincarnation, but that you keep on doing the same again and again – and even when you seem to be on the last steps of your journey, it starts all over again. There is no way out, but to stop playing the game.

No belief, no world to hide that which is unbelievable
The above about leaving the game, so that it does not appear to hide that which is real, does not mean, you have to quit the world just like that.** First of all, it is not the world, that you need to quit but the belief that it is real – and this includes what you consider to be spiritual. Secondly, there is no hurry. You can have your cake and eat it too if whatever you seem to experience due to what you have excluded is extended to also include the excluded. By doing so, you simulate real life, which, as a perfect moment,* is all-inclusive- Thus nothing feels wrong or missing.

Hence there is nothing to search for, and thus nothing to feed your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one – and so there does not appear to be something hiding the oneness of that which is life.

Everybody wants to appear as if they are the good ones, and as being good means, you are better than others, you basically exclude others in order to be good. This is why the world may seem hopeless to you. But do not worry, hopelessness sets you free from the world. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This is why the world may seem hopeless to you. But do not worry, hopelessness sets you free from the world. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Observing is founded on the idea that it is possible to exclude fragments of reality and fabricate an image based on your judgment of right and wrong. But as reality is that which is one part of it cannot be excluded. It seems, however, possible to use the power of oneness to imagine you have the power to split it up. Hence everything, that involves separation fences off that which is one.

Living in the now is one out of many ways to be exclusive. In this case you exclude the thoughts judged to be of the past or the future, so you to seem to experience a special state of mind called now. But it is just as fabricated, as the anything else in a world that is defined by what is excluded.

To be inclusive is the way of life but not of the world*
Not to separate is not easy in a world defined by time and space. To be defined as someone definitive there, you must separate yourself from what is considered not to be you. Appear as if you are spiritual, for example, everything considered not to be spiritual must be excluded from what you want to appear like, so that the apparent heaviness of an unspiritual world can serve as a background for highlighting you and like-minded as spiritual.

If you have realised, that the only sickness which needs to be healed is the belief that you are someone definitive** and start to use the world as a means to be inclusive and not exclusive, part of you may insist on not including everything – perhaps justified by a body, that seems to be sick and to cure it something must be excluded from it.*

No worries. Just take care of the body.*** It cannot hinder you from being inclusive. As long as you also include what you exclude, you are only heading one way, namely to include that which is one.

When there is nothing to hope for, you are free. You may not want that freedom though, because what you are free from is the belief in being someone definitive and when that is undone, there is nothing to hide there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless. In other words, the world and everything in it, including your children and whatnot are gone together with what you appeared to be there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When there is nothing to hope for, you are free****
When forgetting to be inclusive, desperation may set in, as it seems so hopeless appearing in a world limited by time and space. That is, until you realise, feeling hopeless is good news, because without hope there is nothing to keep you there. You are free to not believe a world defined by time and space can replace that which is you, namely the formlessness of oneness.

If you in the middle of feeling hopeless do not realise, this is the best you could have hoped for but instead feel frustrated, do not worry. Just include feeling hopeless and frustrated totally unedited in the present moment. Whatever is fully included loses its apparent dimension. Hence it is nothing in a world defined by time and space.

And as the inclusion of one feeling momentary rubs off on many others, there is, eventually, nothing left to feel, which means there is not something to block out the enlightenment of that which is one. But as you most likely hang onto feelings of loss – especially your identity – the enlightenment of that which is one is not bid welcome. Yet you may have glimpses of it.

This you can read more about in the article A reintroduction of enlightenment, inward and outward-facing senses.


*) In hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness you can read more about inclusion as a way to undo the belief in separation versus exclusion as a way to enhance this belief.

**) Please do not understand quitting the world as a call to commit suicide. To quit the world is to stop believing, that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, whereas committing suicide enhances that belief.

***) You cannot choose to have the belief in being or having a body undone before honouring your choice of being or having a body, which is done by facilitating the body – for example by brushing its teeth and eating nutritional food. But it is not done by trying to become purer by forcing the body into weird stretches and whatnot, neither by over-exercising. Such ideas are conceived in the mind and should be dealt with there and not projected onto the body. Check hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

There is no loss in life

As life is the formlessness of oneness, it is endless. Hence there is no more than that which is one. And as scarcity and abundance require more than one, it is not possible to be or have neither less or more than the formlessness of oneness, unless you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world though is not anywhere. Not because there is nothing outside of the formlessness of that which is one, but because what is formless has no sides and thus neither an inside or outside. In terms of a world defined by time and space, oneness is so flat, that it takes up no space. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Everything in the world is limited by time and space. That also includes god and other so-called spiritual concepts. God is in general mentioned as he, and sometimes as an old man in the sky. Auras, chakras, and you name it all have a form, that is defined by time and space. Also, states of mind like bliss and joy has a beginning and an end.

That which is life has no beginning and end – it is formless. So of course, scientist cannot find it. Formlessness cannot be in a form, and as the world is nothing but form, there is no life there. In other words, the world is not real. This is the reason scientist are not able to explain the creation of it, and new age people or religious ones invent gibberish stories of god, higher self and whatnot to give a meaning to the empty space called the world.

Within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one a game like Monopoly is not considered to be real, so it is not meaningful to pretend to be in its world except for fun of it. That is the same in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are not there to learn anything except for the rules of the game – and there is no other meaning of playing the game than having fun pretending to be a someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

If you have forgotten the world is not real, and that you are not there, it is not enjoyable appearing to be there. No friend, spouse, explanation, experiences of so-called heaven or otherworldly states will lessen the fear it is to believe being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are bound to always feel that something is not right when you seem to be separated from the oneness of life.

When you are playing a game in the world, and you forget it is just a game, you are still sitting at the table, where you play the game. Nothing has changed even though you may not notice the table anymore.

Neither friends or anything else in the world can lessen the fear it entails to believe being an entity, that has an end.

Neither friends or anything else in the world can lessen the fear it entails to believe being a creature with an end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Likewise, even though you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, that which is you is still the oneness of that which is life. It cannot be anywhere else, because that which is life is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that. In other words, the appearance of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe. Yet it is only due to the power of that which is you, that you can believe you are something else.

So if you – metaphorically speaking – have forgotten, you sit at a table playing the game of a world where there seems to be more than one, there is nothing you need to do to come back to where you are but to stop believing you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. When this belief is undone, there is nothing to hide where you are.

To make long short: If you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, forget about greatness, bliss and heavenly states of mind. Just like the virtual world in a video game seems more exciting than a world where there seems to be more than one, such a world seems more exciting than the formlessness of that which is one. There is, actually, no excitement at all in that which is one, because it takes more than one to be excited.

For the same reason, there is no choice, greatness, bliss and love in that which is one. It takes up no space, so there is no space for anything. It is not dimensional like the world, you appear to be in. Rather it is flat with no direction to go, but one – and not even that, because it takes more than one to go somewhere.

To make long short. The formlessness of oneness is boring compared to all the possibilities you can to choose from in a world where there seems to be more than one. But as they never last, they induce fear of loss, contrary to the formlessness of oneness, where there are no possibilities but one and therefore nothing to lose or fear, which is very peaceful. If that is what you want, forget where and what you appear to be.

APPENDIX:
The way to forget where and what you appear to be is to not have a reason to be where and what you appear to be. As long as you have that, you will do what it takes to make the world appear as if it is real so that you can fulfil your purpose of appearing there. This purpose is differently formulated for different persons, but in general, it is about being and/or having more of something and less or nothing of something else.

You may want more love, compassion, truth, power, or whatever you think you miss in order to be complete. And you may want less of hate, anger, ego or whatever is imagined making you incomplete.

Not knowing what and where you are, there is nothing to define you. Hence there is not someone, who appears to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

But that which is you is already complete, because it is no different from that which is one, and as it is formless and therefore everything, so is you. In other words, it is not possible to be more – and when you see that, there is no reason to do what it takes to appear in a world where there seems to be more than one.

That which is real never ends

Two dolphins are not enough. You want to see more. Maybe you also want them to be bigger – or to perform better. To see them on this pic may be judged as virtual and not good enough, so you want to see them in physical form. Maybe that is not good enough either, because you have ideas about direct experience, so you want to be in the water with them. And so it goes on. What is, is never good enough.

PART 1:
What can you learn, when you play a game like Monopoly? You can learn the rules and be better at exploiting them for your own benefit because the game is about taking something from others so that you have more than them – preferable everything. When that is accomplished you have won and everybody else has lost.

The game mirrors the world, as the purpose is the same, namely to get as much as possible at the expense of everybody else. In general, this is about getting more money and buying more physical stuff, but for some, it is not about having more physical things but more power. And for those considering themselves to be spiritual, it is about having more peace, love, higher consciousness or whatever they imagine being more spiritual.

The name of the game is more, but no matter how much you get you will panic when there is no more to get but everything instead is taken from you in the moment of death.

Is it not ridiculous, that everybody is participating in a game, where no matter what they do they will perish and lose everything in the end? It seems cruel. What is the purpose of it?

The dream of becoming more than that which is life
The purpose of being or having more is to forget, that it is not possible to be or have more. That which is you is no different from that which is life and life is the formlessness of oneness. And as formlessness is endless there is no more than life.

In other words, that which is you is everything, so you have everything. Hence there is nothing more to be or have. It is not possible. Yet it seems possible to think so. And manifesting this dream of being or having more as real is the purpose of participating in a world where there seems to be more than one.

That which is life does not know, that you have a dream of being in control, because to know something – or to be in control – requires more than one, and since that which is one is formless and therefore endless, there is no more than that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But that which is life does not know, you dream about being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Just like in the context of such a world nobody knows the dreams you are having at night.

To be or have more does not last because everything in a world where there seems to be more than one ends
That which is life only knows that which is one, namely itself. Everything else is illusionary. Also meaning and purpose. There are no such things in oneness. It is not needed – being one is more than meaning enough. In an illusion, however, meaning and purpose are important, because that is what makes it appear to be real.

When the purpose is to be or have more than that which is one, it seems as if something is happening, when you become or get more – also if it goes the other way – and when something seems to happen it appears to be is real. That is why nothing in the world ever seems to be good enough. Something always must change in order to make it appear real. For this reason, the weather, for example, is always judged to be too hot or too cold.

But no matter how much more you become or have, you will fear to lose it, because everything in a world where there seems to be more than one has an end. In the formlessness of that which is one, however, there is nothing to fear, because there is nothing to lose or nothing to gain, as formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

Purpose determines what you see
As long as you believe it is possible to be and have more you will feel limited because there is no more than that which is one. To change feeling limited, you may think, you should stop desiring more, and instead become more pure and detached from the world. But that is just another variant of more because right away you will want to become even more pure, detached and free from desire.

It´s the purpose of being in the world that determines, why you seem to see three dolphins in this pic. If your purpose is to have more, you may be disappointed there´s only three – or that you are not there yourself to experience the dolphins. But if your purpose is to see everything in the world as symbols of life your satisfaction do not depend on being there physical yourself or how many dolphins there are, because you are satisfied to see symbols of life.

Since it is the intention, that determines, how you perceive yourself, all you need to change is the purpose of your appearance as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. When that is not to be and have more than that which is one, you are not definable and thus not able to feel limited. This, however, is not the only purpose that is beneficial for not feeling limited. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings especially advocates pretending to be someone definitive, as what you pretend to be, you are not.

Another purpose Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings advocate is to relate to everything in the world as symbols of life, which is the theme of hack 2.1-6. Relating in this way differences make no difference, and so it does not matter if you get more or not. It all symbolises the same, namely that which is life. The same applies to death, which is just another symbol of life. In other words, only the symbol dies, but not that which it is a symbol of.

No matter how much you pay for a house in Monopoly, it is not real, so you cannot sleep there – especially because you are not there.

No matter how much you pay for a house in Monopoly, you have not gotten a real one, so you cannot sleep there. Yet you can pretend* that you do so. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
There is nothing to connect to in the world of a game, for example like Monopoly, because it is not real. If you think, you are connecting to something, it is exactly that, something that you think. Likewise, there is nothing to connect to in a world where there seems to be more than one. To be connected with the Earth this world is a joke. It is like connecting to the board of Monopoly. It is meaningless. That is why those who connect to specific appearances in the world are so spaced-out.

In the context of connecting you can connect to what the appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one symbolises, namely that which is one – just like you can connect to what the appearances in Monopoly symbolise. Monopoly is not a manifestation of the physical world but an abstraction of some of its parts, so it is not possible to sleep in the house of Monopoly. They are not real symbol of a real one in a world where there seems to be more than one, so you can only pretend to sleep in them. Yet pretending* will not result in the tranquillity of real sleep.

You cannot be in a world where there seems to be more than one, because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. But you can pretend* there is such a world and that you are someone in it, and while pretending you are in a virtual reality, you can connect to everything in it as symbols of that which is real**.

Doing so, you everything still appears to differ from each other, but since they symbolise the same, namely the oneness of life, the difference does not make a difference**, so when this world seems to end for you, death is just another a symbol of that which is life.

NOTES:

  • For some to be or have more is not what seems to motivate them. Instead, it is about the world and/or you becoming better – or having the feeling of becoming new through ideas of being reborn or getting new stuff. It is all the same, because there is nothing better than that which is one, neither is there anything that is more new than the freshness of being one perpetual present.
  • To think it is better to be closer to something is no different from wanting more. It is a way to not be present and wanting to change the moment as it is. The whole world is constructed for that purpose, but you are free to choose another.

How to end the belief in being someone definitive

It takes two to experience this pic. The experienced and the one experiencing it, so seeing this pic, you have made a choice not to be one. To be one, you need to not make a choice.

As it takes more than one to experience this image, you only seem to experience it because you have made and continuously uphold a choice to not be separated from that which is one. This takes much effort, whereas not being more than one requires none because that does not call for a choice as there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
You cannot do anything to be that which is one. Actually, you cannot be that or anything else because it takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

»The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white – neither need you do anything to be yourself.« old Chinese saying.

In other words, there is nothing to choose, so if you think you have chosen to read this article, you are mistaken.

The application of hack 2.3 Choosing or not facilitates the correction of your mistake by pointing out that even though you, within the context of your error, do not have the power to change this article, you can choose to change your perception of it. Likewise, you cannot change the world but your perception of it. Consequently, you can choose to perceive it in a way that makes you happy.

But as there ultimately is no choice since there is no more than that which is one, you choose that which is one by choosing not to choose. This will automatically make you go with the stream of thoughts as it flows from the brain until the very end, and there does not appear to be something hiding that which is one anymore. You can read about going the flow of thoughts in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

Returning to that which is one is not about following spaced out ideas about astral energies, for example, as doing so dissociates you from feeling the despair that it entails to choose being separated from that which is one. But it is about feeling this despair and being inspired to not uphold this choice.

Choosing to perceive everything as symbols of that which is one will not change the world’s appearances. But as they all symbolise the same, their apparent difference makes no difference. Hence believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one makes no sense. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You do not perceive the world for what it is, but for what you want it to be. And as you want to be someone definitive, you judge the apparent difference between it and you to make a difference. As this judgment is based on the belief in separation and suffering is its buddy, what you want does not make you feel good.

But perceiving all appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one. Their apparent difference does not appear to make a difference. Consequently,  there is nothing to uphold the belief in separation, so its buddy, suffering, is gone.

In other words, while you seem to be in a world of choices, it is beneficial to choose to perceive everything in the world where there seems to be more than one as symbols of that which is one. However, this choice leads to no choice because the apparent differences in the world make no difference when they are all perceived as a symbol l for the same.

This is not to say, that you from now on should avoid choosing or be careful only to decide what is right, because if you have chosen to perceive what you appear to be as a symbol of that which is one, your choice does not make a difference, since whatever you choose symbolises the same.

Everything in the world has an end, but that which is life has no end. Consequently there is no life in the world.

Everything in a world defined by time and space has an end, but that which is life has no end because it is formless and therefore endless. Hence there is no life in a world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
If you play a game like Monopoly, it makes no difference if you profit from others or try to help them. There is no real money to get or lose. You follow the dice and go where it leads you. That is all. No matter what philosophy you fancy, you are still following the way of the outward-facing senses* because only those senses can see a pattern in the game. There are, however, many ways of perceiving the way, but that is the content of another sub duality hack, namely hack #1.3. You cannot change the world, but you can change your perception of it.

You can read about the deception of the outward-facing senses in HACK #6, inward-facing senses, enlightenment and glimpses of it.

Just like it makes no difference what colour your car has in the world of Monopoly, it makes no difference how your personality is coloured in a world defined by time and space. Whether it appears so-called spiritually or mundane, the senses used to have this experience have to follow one of the ready-made paths defined by time and space, that though they all seem to lead to different places, all lead to Rome, as the saying goes. And Rome is just as illusionary as anything else in a world encapsulated by time and space

So to quit the game of being someone in a world defined by time and space, you do not have to make yourself purer, lovingly, high, or anything else in such a world to follow a unique path out of it. All that is needed is to undo the belief, that you are someone there.

APPENDIX
This is the end of hack #2.2 Choosing or not. It is not the end of life, though. As it is formless, it never ends. That is why a world defined by time and space is lifeless. Life can be compared to electricity. Although that makes it possible to experience this article on electronic media, it is not in the article.

Hence everything in this article is as lifeless as the reader of it. If you want to be where life is, the belief in being someone definitive have to be undone. But neither this article nor anything else in the world has the power to undo this belief for you because it is your belief.

If you need time to process Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, you believe to be special, because time is required to exclude everything from your perception of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings so it seems to confirm how special you are.

No worries. Since it is you who have chosen this belief, you are perfectly able to undo it yourself. That is if you do not do it in your own way and speed since only the special self (read more about that here) has its own way. Hence you may choose to use Alexius´ Duality Hacks to do that for you.

There is nothing wrong

PART 1:
When the life of a computer is over, the energy that the machine received so it could simulate a world on the screen, is still there, namely electricity. The same thing when the life of a 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 this has several names, for example non-duality, the oneness of life, the formlessness of oneness, one perpetual present, that which is you or that which is life / one / spirit.

Whether you hate or love someone when you pretend to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is equally entertaining. But not if you believe to be someone. In this case, only the passion of love is socially acceptable. The fury of hate must be controlled and hidden, so instead of having fun exploring it, you feel guilty.

Who but the beast is looking for beauty?

Doing that, however, you go against your basic instincts. The nervous circuits in the brain, that are responsible for the experience of hate, is also in control of the experience of love. In other words, to the brain, they are the same. This applies to any other emotion divided into opposing contrasts, for example good/bad, right/wrong and black/white.

In a world of duality, everything comes in pairs. Hence you cannot have love without hate and vice versa.

Hate is an equally interesting passion as love. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Hate is as exciting to explore as love. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Although the world is as ugly as it is beautiful, most only want to explore the beautiful side of it. But 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 only specific symbols of it. This does not mean that you have to explore heavy metal music if you hate it. Hate is also a symbol of that which is one.

There are more about inclusiveness in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness.

INTERLUDE:
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 have a self.

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 think you are the fighter in a video game you play. You only have to pretend that. By doing that you are selfless. In other words, selflessness is not about doing selfless actions, but about not being identified with the self.

PART 2:
When you give water to a plant, and the flowers start to blossom, the life they seem to manifest is probably perceived to come from so it can attest to you being alive as well. This, however, is a construction of thoughts founded on the judgment that the plant lives because it moves. That could be a trick of a magician or maybe a simulation, for example an animated cartoon, that you are conditioned to perceive as real.

So when you, based on the idea of having supported the plant with life, conclude the new flowers attest to you being alive, you could be wrong. Maybe you are just a gadget in a magic show or a character in an animated cartoon. Anyway, if you do not perceive the flowers to an effect of you, you have not caused them. Hence they do not confirm you are alive.

Not being confirmed as someone who is alive does not mean that you are not definable in the world – only what is definable can appear in a world defined by time and space – but that definitions do not stick to you. If you swim, you are not a swimmer, but something that floats. If you sing, you are not a singer, but something that makes melody.

Whatever you appear to be doing in the world is not done by that which is you, because it takes someone definitive to do something and that which is you is the formlessness of oneness. That is why it cannot be in a world defined by time and space, except as something pretended. And since what you pretend to be you are not, pretending becomes a way to confirm, that you are not someone definitive in a world defined by time and space but the formlessness of that which is one.

To be a person in the world is to be compared to streaming music in the sense, that the person you seem to be is actually not ´there´.

The experience of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to streaming music in a sense, that what you hear is actually not there. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 3:
Listening to music at home has become less and less physical in the last years. First, a big and heavy vinyl record was replaced with a smaller and lighter compact cassette and then a more slender compact disc. Later MP3 took over. It required hardly any space. But its recent replacement, streaming, does not require any at all. The signals that carry streaming music is invisible but everywhere. They cannot be heard as music before an electronic device has picked them up and translated them into that. This enables you in no time to listen to whatever you want, wherever you are, although what you hear is not there.

It some ways it is the same thing that happens when you experience to be someone definitive. At least according to the brain. It claims to receive signals from your sensory system or chakras that it translates into the experiences you have of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. But the signals are picked up from nowhere by nobody because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

Read more about that in

Most, however, do not want to be exposed as nobody, so they suppress that they are an illusion. This suppression results in depression, whereas the acknowledgement of the deception feels uplifting. It sets ´you´ free to pretend to be what and where you are not. And that is quite fun.

PART 4:
When in pain, a reflex compels you to make it go away. Taking this reflex serious is how you fool yourself into believing you are someone definitive. This does not mean, you should not do what is in the best interest of the body or try to finish the pain. But that pretending to someone who is in pain, what you do about it does not enhance the belief you are someone definitive because what you pretend to be you are not.

In the moments of death, it can be almost impossible to pretend to be someone definitive because the brain is falling apart. Yet having pretended it for a long time, you are not someone definitive, so nobody is dying.

Whether you believe to be someone or pretend to be it, what you appear to be is bound to end. This often causes panic. And even if that is conquered, death is not if you try hanging onto what you believe to be. But pretending to be someone, there is nothing to conquer because what you pretend to be is not real, so nobody is dying.

By pretending to be a person in a world, that is not there, you know, that the one pretending is not there.

By pretending to be someone definitive in a world of duality, you can have fun appearing to be what and where you are not.  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX:
In old religious scripts from India, which in many ways are the basis of the Western New Age way of thinking, the world is called Maya. It is a Hindi word for illusion. You could, therefore, say that the basis of both eastern and western alternative thinking is, that the world is an illusion. Since this also is the basis of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, everything you believe to read in them, or anywhere else, is an illusion.

To spell it out, there is no truth to find in the world, whether you look high or low, inside or outside, in the past, now, future or whatnot. All experiences are deceptive, whether they seem to be mundane or spiritual. This includes your interpretation of this statement.

Yet there seems to be a crucial difference between Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings and most teachings of so-called spirituality. They promise you a lot. Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings offer you nothing wherefore they do not enhance the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

One way of phasing out this belief is to pretend that you get something because what you pretend to have is not real, and so, eventually, there does not seem to be more than that which is one.

Pretending is a way to reality

It takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless, so anything you believe in being is an illusion. This includes what you perceive to be spiritual. See All experiences are equally unreal.

In other words, since there is no life outside of that which is one, what you believe to be is as lifeless as the dolls in a dollhouse. Therefore, appearing to be someone definitive is make-believe. It is a fantasy in which you, like an actor, pretend to be what and where you are not.

Anything you believe in being, including being spiritual, is an illusion because it takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one. This includes believing to be spiritual. See All experiences are equally unreal.

That being said, nobody is making this fantasy. Like within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, nobody is making the dreams you seem to have. And nobody, including you, is in those dreams, even though they appear to be in you.

Fortunately, pretending to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one does not seem to establish it as real because what and you pretend to be, you are not. Thus appearing to be there appears to entail happiness and not the sadness that comes from believing to be someone there.

What you pretend to depend on what you imagine to be expected from you and what you believe to be in it for you.

Samples of unconsciously pretending to be someone definitive
When you look for a new home, you may imagine what kind of person who used to live in the places you see and what kind of person you would be if living there.

At work, you may pretend to be someone who fits in socially and/or professionally. But when not at work, you probably pretend to your own. And going to the disco, you most likely to be a party-goer.

If your kids are worried, you pretend everything is fine, and if they are naughty, you pretend something terrible will happen.

Being attracted by the look or the vibe of someone, you pretend the other one has exactly the personality that matches yours or that you are soulmates.

Making a pass on someone, you no doubt adjust your behaviour by what seems to turn the other on so you can pretend to be the person the other one wants.

Perhaps you imagine, while you read this, what kind of person you should pretend to be if you follow Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, or if you are opposed to that.

To recommend you pretend to be someone definitive is to advocate something, everybody already does. Thus it might be more correct to suggest being aware of it.

Maybe only your body is having sex with your spouse. You just pretend to be there while thinking of somebody else. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A sample of consciously pretending …
… that you may already know from your way as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. You are having sex with your spouse, but only your body is there. You are fantasising about somebody else while you pretend to be with your spouse.

Knowing  a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe, you have fun pretending to be there
You might be aware that you pretend to be someone you are not in encounters like the above. Most likely, however, you suppress that you always pretend to be what you are not – like you all the time do in a role-play, for example. And just like appearing to be someone in the world of a role-play is fun because you know it is make-believe, so is appearing to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one when you know it is fictional.

In other words, when you know the world is virtual, you know that everything – the energetic people in an advertisement for Coca-Cola, the glamourous rockstar, or the beautiful people on social media, for example – is all pretence. Thus you do not look for authenticity but the entertainment that comes from pretending to be what you are not.

To search for the truth in a game like Monopoly is meaningless. There is nothing to realise in its world, because you are not ´there´. But that you can realise. Likewise, when you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

And since you already know how to pretend to be a person in a make-believe world – just think about when you are on a dating site or social media, play a game or an air guitar – this is easy. Especially if you also keep reading Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings because they are not afraid to admit, they are just as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one, and thus the belief that you are someone there.

Just like it is just as illusionary to be a red or a blue car in Monopoly, for example, or how many scratches the vehicle gets. The damages are not real, and they do not change that which is. In other words, what you pretend to be, you are no, so that which is you remain unchanged, whether you pretend to be compassionate or merciless, for example. Here you can read more about not being in a game or anywhere.


It is not explainable why you experience to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one because to do so takes more than one and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you are tired of the pretence and falseness, that appears to be in a world where there seems to be more than one and look for more authenticity, you deceive yourself. You would not experience to be someone if you want truthfulness.

In that case, there would be no experiences,  because that which is authentic cannot be known. It is that which is one and it takes more than one to be conscious of something.

Pretending to be what and where you are not is entertaining
It requires much control to uphold the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. So if you are fed up from being holed as someone definitive, you pretend to be that. It is so fun that there is no need for self-control.

Eventually, therefore, no belief appears to hide there never was and never will be more than that which cannot be believed as it takes more than one to do so, and it is that which is one which is formless and therefore endless.

Pretending is neither bad or good but the way to appear as someone in a make-believe world.

You may think pretending is a bad thing and that you better stop acting and find the real you so you can express that.

First of all: That which is you has nothing to express. It is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing else and no one to communicate with.

Secondly: The oneness of that which is you cannot be found in a world defined by time and space. Nothing can be found in such a world but illusions, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is you.

Pretending is neither bad nor good. It is just a tool that you use to appear where you are. You cannot be in the illusionary world of a video game, a movie, a book or a dream, but you can pretend to be there.

How you appear to be is not important when you do not believe that it is you

But whether you believe or pretend to be in the world of a book, it takes the same course, likewise, in a world where there seems to be more than one. The difference, though, between believing or pretending to be there is that you feel entertained regardless of the outcome in the case of the latter.

CANCELLEX Pretending is freedom from self-deception

 

 

Pretending to be someone definitive is such a relief

IMG_2901

On vacation in a foreign country, you appear to be a different person than in your native country because you pretend to be a tourist exploring another world. Likewise, what you seem to be in a world defined by time and space is not that which is you but something you pretend to be. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PREFACE:
Everybody knows that appearing to be someone in a world of duality is like appearing to be someone in the world of roleplay. That is why they always try to do the right thing. Unfortunately, most forget what and where they appear to be is not real. It is a game in which they pretend to be someone. Remembering that you do not have to meditate to be that which is you, as what and where you pretend to be, you are not.

PART 1:
When an electric bulb breaks down, it cannot use the electricity coming from the power station to illuminate a world outside itself. This feels like death if identified with what this defines it to be, namely a bulb radiating light on something. Nothing, however, is dead if it does not believe to be a bulb but pretends to be that because what it pretends to be, it is not. It is the electricity that always was and will be and, for a moment, made it possible to pretend it was a lamp. Read more about electricity as a metaphor for life here.

Likewise, nothing lasts in a world defined by time and space, so if you believe to be someone there, nor do you. But if you pretend to be there, you remain as that which is you, and since it is formless and therefore endless, it never ends.

Pretending to be somewhere you are not can be compared to pretending to be someone in roleplay. However, regarding a world defined by time and space, this must be set in motion before you appear to leave it. Otherwise, you will try to hang onto what you believe to be there.

When you do not believe to be in a world defined by time and space, the absurdity of it becomes a comedy in which you have fun to pretending to take part of it.

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

When the body stops functioning, you fall apart as someone definitive. If not fighting this, there is not something to hide, that there never was or will be anything but life since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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

Although electricity makes it possible to experience this article on an electronic media, it is not in the article. Likewise, there is no life in a world defined by time although it is what makes it possible to fantasise about not being formless but definitive.

This does not mean it knows electricity because it is not in the world that it lights up. But it means that it does not define itself as something definitive. Hence there is no consciousness of being anything and thus not something that appears to die when it cannot pretend to be someone illuminating a world outside of itself anymore.

The way you think, feel, and act when you believe to be someone definitive is the same when you pretend to be someone, except that sexual lust, rage, or anything else that is politically incorrect is not condemned. That is because when you pretend to be someone definitive, you do not perceive the difference between good and evil to make a difference.

There is no need to search for that which is you because it is not in the world defined by time and space. Just like in the context of such world, you are not in a game you are playing there. Thus all that you can find is what you are not. That is exactly what you discover when pretending to be someone in a world of duality.

Nothing is waiting for you, as there is no more than that which is one. In other words, when you are finished pretending to be someone definitive, you do not return to the formlessness of oneness because you never left it.

Scientists have not discovered the origin of the world because there is none. It does not exist. That is why they cannot find dark matter, which they claim is the missing link in proving the world’s existence. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

INTERLUDE:
Just like the recording on a protected compact disc cannot be replaced with a new one, that which is one cannot be replaced with a world where there seems to be more than one. Not because oneness is protected, but because it is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

You are, therefore, deceiving yourself if you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. No worries. This deception is easily corrected. If you pretend to be in such a world, you are not there.

You will do anything to experience, that you are touched by something – whether it seems to be good or bad, mundane or spiritual, imaginative or real – because it makes you feel alive.

PART 2:
No matter how good the graphics are in a video game, the characters cannot touch you. So if you feel affected by them, it does not come from the game but from yourself. This self-deception takes place every time you project thoughts onto a character that seem to make you feel something specific. In other words, what you get is what you give.

Forgetting this and being absorbed by the virtual reality in a video game, the fastest way to leave it and return to the world is to turn it off. However, what is judged to be the real world is just as virtual though as the world in the video game. So, being absorbed by that, you can only stop this self-deception by turning off the switch to the experience of being someone definitive.

If you believe to be in a world that is virtual, you cannot be taught how to leave it, because you are not there.

Speeding up the appearance of thoughts until they do not appear to be more than one is the switch to turn off the belief in being in a world where there seems to be more than one. See A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a movie of that which is one played in slow motion. To go from slow to fast, you have to begin where you appear to be by starting to pretend you are there instead of believing it. 

The more you pretend this, the less you are there because where you pretend to be, you are not. Thus the need to seek out thoughts that can be projected on something imagined, so it seems to be confirmed as real, fades out, and when they are not kept under control, they automatically speed up until there is no more than one.

Pretending to be a person is a way out.

You say goodbye to the belief that you are someone definitive by pretending to be it because what you pretend to be, you are not. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words, it is by pretending to be someone definitive in a virtual world, you eventually remember that you are not there. It is not possible because reality is that which is one, and it takes more than one to be somewhere.

No need to worry about how to speed up thoughts. If you do not try to slow them down by controlling, categorising, and processing them, nothing stops them from speeding up. Just like a river’s nature is to run faster and faster towards the ocean, it is the nature of thoughts to speed up until there is no more than one.

Read more about not controlling thoughts in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

PART 3:
Interaction is the name of the game if a virtual world is to appear real. But since the communication is founded on what you imagine others think, you interact with a fantasy of yours, and since what you believe to be is based on this, you are a fantasy as well. In other words, what you appear to be is make-believe – just like Santa Claus, for example.

You stopped believing the adventure of Santa Claus when you grew up, but you still think you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Undoing that belief is like having fun pretending to be Santa Claus. In other words, when you pretend to be someone definitive instead of believing it, you have fun because what you pretend to be, you are not. Hence nothing brings you down.

Having fun being nobody, there is no need to be confirmed by others as genuine. Thus you can enjoy the illusion of love or whatnot.

To be free from what you are not is to not be anything because it takes more than one to be something, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 4:
The belief that you are someone definitive who experiences something specific that seems to hide, that there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness. This belief, however, corrects itself the more you pretend to be someone definitive because that confirms you are nobody.

Fortunately, this is already so. What you appear to be is empty space. This is why nothing about your appearance in a world defined by time and space needs to be changed or transformed. On the contrary, changes, also if perceived to be spiritual, enhance the belief that there is more than that which is one since it takes more than one to modify something.

This belief’s undoing is not about opening up or surrender to a higher power as that requires more than one. Since it, therefore, takes nobody to undo the belie, you pretend you are somebody because what you pretend to be, you are not.

Perceiving your experiences as nothing instead of something, they are revealed to be lifeless.

PART 5:
Metaphorically speaking, the universe is a shadow of that which is one in which there appear to be more than one. Read more about that here. But since there is no life in a shadow, the only way to appear to be there is to pretend it.

What´s casting a shadow is not in the shadow.

That which is casting a shadow is not in the shadow. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Grasping this, you are free to pretend to be any kind of person. Maybe you like to pretend you are committed, and so you do until you prefer to pretend you are careless or that you love everybody. You can pretend to be whatever you like, like you may do in front of the mirror.

If you feel bad about something you seem to think, remember that thoughts are like shadows. They are not you.

By pretending to be somebody, you remain that which is you and, therefore, detached from what you pretend to be. A shadow, of course, is permanently attached to whatever is casting it, but that which is throwing it is detached from the shadow because it is not in it.

PART 6:
As already said, the world can be compared to a shadow, and a shadow cannot give you anything – not even dissatisfaction, so if that is how you feel, it is not real. All that you seem to get from a shadow is imagined.

From this follows, it is up to you to choose what you imagine to get. At least as long as you go for something within the limitation of the shadow world. Just like when pretending to be someone in a game like Monopoly, you can be happy with what you get within the limits of it. Should you lose something, it is nothing. The same applies to the shadow world, so why not give it your best shot and have fun pretending to really be physically there? You have nothing to lose.

In a world where there seems to be more than one you cannot realise that which is real, namely the formlessness of oneness. But you can realise, that what you appear to be is a fantasy. Doing so, you are free to pretend what to be and enjoy the experiences this seems entail.

To resume, do not try to be spiritual. There is no spirituality in a shadow, only in that which appears to cast it, namely that which is one. If pretending to be what you are not, the unselfishness of that eventually makes all experiences go away, so nothing seems to hide that there is no more than that which is one.

Life is neither a cause nor an effect, there is no karma!

If the car in this image seems to make, you feel in a specific way, you are constructing this effect yourself. The picture has no power to cause you to feel anything at all. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
When you hit a nail into the wall, you get an immediate physical effect, which is not caused by the past but the present. Should you bang your finger while hammering on the nail and remember you once hit somebody else, it has nothing to do with that. Slamming the finger is just an accident. Nothing in your past caused it, nor is there anything set in motion for the future, apart from going to the doctor if the finger is severely damaged.

If you want causal connections to imply, what and where you believe to be has a special meaning, you must invent them.

To suffer from bodily pain because you accidentally hit your finger does not sound like you have an adventurous life. But if you somehow connect the suffering with something from your childhood, you have a basis for a story of cause and effect in which you seem to be part of something special and, therefore, to have a great purpose.

Since the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, nothing else could have caused it, nor can it cause something else. Consequently, everything created is lifeless and thus meaningless.

Every time you look for something that seems to justify your current state of mind, you fabricate cause and effect – also called karma. As it is all an imagination, you feel its effect in the very same moment you imagine this connection. There is no other karma than this imagined connection. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

On top of that, this invention of cause and effect makes it possible to justify any thought, emotion or action as ´caused´ by something in the past. Hence the concept of karma can be used to legitimise everything you think, feel and do, and you, therefore, always appear to be innocent. The result of this fabrication of cause and effect is not something you feel in the future, but in the same moment, you get rid of specific feelings from yourself by justifying them as caused by something judged to be separated from you.

If you do not construct such a connection, thoughts, emotions and actions have no cause. And since there is no effect without cause and vice versa, you have no thoughts and feelings, nor are you doing anything. Your existence is make-believe. And so is the whole universe.

INTERLUDE:
You do not reap as you sow. It is a childish fantasy like getting Santa Claus and the Fairy Tooth. It only seems to be real when you are young and have not developed common sense yet.

Fortunately, this misperception of what causes an event is easily corrected. You simply perceive an apparent effect of something as ´it is what it is.´ Doing that, the effect is not something specific and thus not the cause of anything in particular. Read more about this perception in hack #4.2 The brain´s script and how to perceive it to feel happy.

You cannot know why this picture is here. You have to make up the reason. Therefore, since the cause is fictional, so is seeing the image – likewise, the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one. Nobody knows the cause of it. There is a theory about a big bang that created something from out of nothing. It sounds as ridiculous as its effect is a world where there seems to be more than one. That is not possible because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 2:
The foundation of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is that the world is not real, but you are, and it cannot be there. One way to know this is to look at the actions of, for example, your boss, spouse or cat. You cannot see what has caused them. Thus the cause is thought up. And since only what is not real, needs to be imagined, the cause is not real. From this follows, the effect it seems to cause is an illusion as well.

You could also say that since these effects do not seem to have a cause and there is no effect without a course, what appears to be an effect is an illusion. And since nobody knows the cause of the world – apart from the weird claim that an explosion of nothing, called the big bang, created a universe of something – the experience of being somewhere there is an illusion. In other words, if you are real, you are not in the world. It is something you pretend to be. Read more about that in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation


NOTES:

  • The above article is written within the framework of a world where there seems to be more than one. Karma, therefore, is discussed in that context. Ultimately, there is no sense in discussing karma because there is no more than that which is one, and it takes more than one to have karma.
