Every moment is the perfect moment – also for dying in the rainforest [draft]

This article is about the rescue of Alexius from the rainforest, where he was about to die after two days without food and water. In television, they called him the hero who survived the wilderness. However, this is not about heroic stuff, but that every moment is the perfect moment.

In 2010 Alexius was stuck in a rainforest for two days without food and water. He followed a dried-out river down the mountain towards the sea, but the closer he came to the sea, the more impenetrable the rainforest became. At the end of the first day, Alexius gave up digging his way through the thorny lianas.

He hallucinated during the second day and prepared himself to die of cold and/or dehydration in the coming night. However, everything was so beautiful that it did not seem important to continue as a separated being. Besides, there was nothing unfulfilled in his personal life. Alexius´ mundane longings had all been met. But at the end of the second day, he was rescued by a helicopter.

The formlessness of life
Before the helicopter arrived, it was like the person inside the body of Alexius died per its script. But it was replaced by an impersonal version of him having only one goal: giving back everything it received to where it came from. The brain heavily backed this replacement because it thinks a self is not meant to be definitive but relative. Read more about that in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

However, since giving everything back to its source is beyond the brain, Alexius did not know how to do that. The brain suggested he should do something great for all mankind? But he sensed it was not about greatness. Actually, it was not about doing but perceiving. Since life is formless, a world defined by time and space is lifeless and thus a fantasy. But there is no illusion without reality, so every part of the fantasy symbolises the formlessness of life.

Therefore, when a world defined by time and space is perceived as a symbol of life, it goes back to the formlessness of life. Hence our experiences do not seem to have any effect, nor do they establish us as somebody definitive. See also hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life.

The world is a construction of fragmented thoughts
You can compare the formlessness of life to having just one thought. It is pure peace. But if that thought is divided into two, peace is over because they need to differ to appear divided. Therefore, one thought as a separate entity looks at the other as a world outside of it. And to uphold the illusion that there is more than one, the division goes on. The thought called the world is divided into black and white thoughts. The thought that watches a world in black and white outside of it is also divided into two, namely a judge and an executioner.

Thus we have a person who chooses between experiences divided into black and white. And then a judge who divides thoughts into right and wrong so the black experiences can be punished for being wrong. When the executioner has carried out the punishment, the Person feels good because now it is off the hook. Someone else is guilty of the mess separation seems to entail. Read more about projections here. However, since this arrangement sets other divisions in motion, the relief is short-lived. So, again and again, the interaction of Person, WorldJudge and Executioner is used to make someone else look bad and yourself good.

Although this happens as an inner dialogue inside a Person, it is often projected onto something seen as outside of it. For example, what feels wrong inside the World of a Person is projected on something perceived as the evil in the World outside of a Person, such as immigrants, the deep state or communists. The Judge may be projected on a god, parent, boss, or lover. And perhaps society is seen as the Executioner.

Nevertheless, this system never makes a Person feel good enough because it is the reason for feeling bad. Read more about that here. But let us return to Alexius in the rainforest to see how he dealt with it emotionally:

If I fear how the helicopter guys judge my tripin the rainforest, it´s actually my ownjudgment of the trip, that I fear.

Enough is enough
Alexius had to make his way through lots of thorny lianas in the dried out river he followed down the mountain to get out of the rainforest. The thorny lianas came in bundles. Sometimes it took half an hour to pass a distance of them, that if not for the bushes of lianas tightly woven together could have walked in two minutes.

His feet were hurting because two nails had been ripped when he fell down the mountain several times due to branches being so dry that they broke when he tried to hold onto them. Moreover, due to the thorns in the bushes, his clothes were torn apart. His hands were full of blood. And each time he came out on the other side of a bundle of thorny bushes, he was so exhausted that he decided the immense beauty he saw was wrong.

Hence the Judge inside Alexius ruled that the experience of a World far away from the known one should be eliminated and the ones to blame for it should be punished. But, although the Executioner worked hard on doing that, the bad experience did not go away and the guilty ones could not be found. This enhanced Alexius´ feeling of being wrongful treated. But when he was about to explode, he suddenly had enough of feeling entrapped by conditioned judgments and solutions.

So he stopped deciding between right and wrong. Hence there was no punishment to be ruled out by the Judge and, consequently, nothing for the Executioner to set right. Of course, that did not mean the bad World disappeared. But that instead of trying to get rid of it, Alexius included it. Thus what he had perceived as bad did not seem to hide, everything was fine as it was. Nothing was wrong or missing. The moment was the perfect moment.

In the middle of nowhere, Alexius had no need to go anywhere. The moment was perfect as it was.

This was not an intellectual but an emotional change for Alexius. When he stopped trying to get rid of his frustrations of feeling stuck, he burst out in laughter because there was nothing he needed to escape. Thus the journey in the rainforest seemed to mirror running from the moment as it is until, suddenly, out of nowhere, Alexius did not look for anything to fix.

It looks like there is a unique bird is sitting on the tree. But it is a hallucination. The ´bird´ is not a separate entity but part of the tree, which is part of the rainforest, which is … Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Life sees no differences
The foursome of Person, World, Judge and Executioner consider themselves essential in making a world defined by time and space appear real. Yet, they cannot do that without breathing. But it does not seem to care about them because no matter what and where the foursome makes us appear to be, the breath steadily goes on.

In other words, just like electricity does not see what a bulb illuminates in a room due to the power of electricity, the force behind the breath, namely life´s formlessness, does not know what it empowers. Also, like nobody illuminated by electricity can see it, a Person empowered by life´s formlessness cannot realise it because it is not contained in what it empowers. That is why, like a movie or a book consists of nothing but symbols, the foursome and everything they seem to manifest is a symbol of life.

In the case of Alexius, he is aware of this because having vague memories of falling through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness, he knows there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness (see hack #6.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one). However, that is beyond the subject of this article. So we round up by exploring the perfect moment Alexius discovered in the rain forest:

What a perfect moment hanging in the air.

Every moment is the perfect moment. Nothing is wrong or missing. This was crystal clear to Alexius, hanging in the air when he was wired up from the rainforest by a helicopter. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A perfect moment is all-inclusive
Life´s formlessness includes everything because formlessness is endless, so there is nothing but that. Since a perfect moment is inclusive, it confirms the formlessness of life, whereas living in the now denies it, as it excludes thoughts of the perceived future and past.

A perfect moment can last the whole hour you bravely make your way through bushes of thorny lianas, or the second you feel the horror of going through thorny bushes replaced with the relief of getting out, or the minutes you see a helicopter circling around to find you. Or a whole day where you forget everything about the perfect moment and hate the rainforest.

Any thought or feeling passing by is part of the totality that makes a perfect moment. It is not flawless like a music video, though. There are ups and downs, but they are comparable to the thrill of riding up and down on a roller coaster.

The idea of a perfect moment or giving symbols of life back to life´s formlessness only works within a world defined by time and space. Therefore, like anything else in such a world, they must be given up at some point. ´To give up´ must also go, as it is only in such a world there is something to give up.

In other words, the articles in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are written within the illusion of a world defined by time and space. Otherwise, there would be nothing to write about!

In 1972 Alexius bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. However, after telling someone about it, he realised he could not share it. Hence he refrained from that until meeting his astral friend Gudruång on a trip to Crete in 2004. But it was not until after Alexius was rescued from the rainforest, that Gudruång told him to tell his story about the enlightenment of that which is one to the world.

It took a year before Alexius began writing and two more years before he started publishing it. And he had no idea that it would turn into eight duality hacks. Actually, he had never used the word duality before he started writing his enlightened non-teachings.

At first, he was blown out by his realisation in the rainforest that every moment is the perfect moment. But maybe this was more a personal thing. After all, not many can go on a similar trip into the rainforest. Besides, it is pretty dangerous. So maybe you are better off going with the duality flow, which is very much like a perfect moment. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

You could also take it a step further like we do in the nest hack, hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss, or in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

NOTEThis article is part of hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

Meditation is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self

Whether your eyes are open or not, whatever you experience is a symbol of that which is life. If that is not what you see, meditation will not change that. On the contrary, it will confirm the belief that there are good and bad things to experience.

There is only a need to relax through meditation and whatnot because you always are on the way to a better moment than this one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Traditional eastern meditation seems to be about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas western meditation founded on Christianity wants to fill it with ideas of god. The mind, however, is not a fact but make-believe. So both the experience of having no or little thoughts or only thoughts of god is a self-deception.

To think that you can stop or add specific thoughts is an assumption based on the belief that you are someone definitive. If you did not believe that thoughts would not appear to come from somebody but nobody. Hence there would be no reason to meditate. 

Who but those perceiving themselves to be dirty, needs to meditate to be purified.

That meditation will purify, change or transform you is a con trick conducted by the rogue consciousness of the self.* It promises you, that thoughts, at least the disturbing ones will disappear when you meditate so that there is nothing to prevent you from being at peace. Still, most have the opposite experience, namely that they experience more thoughts when they start to meditate. Should they dare to complain about it to their teacher, they are told it is part of the healing process.

But there is nothing to heal other than the sick belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher does not have something, you do not have yourself. You do not need help from anybody. All what is needed is that which makes it possible to experience a the world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is one, and since it is formless and therefore endless, you have nothing but that.

What to conclude? Not much really, maybe to say that thoughts have no power unless you seek out particular ones that seem to prove you are someone definitive because doing so you become a victim of them. Meditation does not change that. On the contrary, mediation enhances the belief that you are someone definitive because the reason you meditate is to fix the problems coming from that belief. So if anything should be stopped, it is the belief that you are someone definitive.

Since that which is you is the formlessness of that which is one, being centred, balanced or anything else that requires a shape is an illusion.

To make long short, what you believe to be is nothing because it requires more than one to be something and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. As oneness, therefore, is all-inclusive and meditation is exclusive, to meditate is a denial of that which is one.

Meditating to make thoughts and feelings go away confirms the belief that they are something, whereas experiencing them as they are, reveals they are nothing because the experience does not last.

The belief in an illusion is undone when you take a closer look at it. Hence you are not gonna have the belief in being some definitive undone with eyes closed but wide open. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Not denying that which is one does not require you to get rid of thoughts and feelings via meditation. On the contrary, instead of rejecting something you judge to be disturbing, hatred for example, you include it by completely being it. Since hate is defined by its contrast, love, you cannot be hateful without acknowledging love. Thus it is also included.

And since a contrast cancels out itself when both sides meet (read more about that here), the feeling perceived to be disturbing is gone. As it, therefore, cannot define you, you become less defined, the more you include. Inevitable you enter in a state of not-knowing. Read more about the bliss of that in hack #5.3 ´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone.

Whether you feel glad, sad or something else, it does not last long when you do not try to avoid it by anylising it, for example, but totally feel it. Hence no feeling seems dangerous but can be enjoed the moment it last.

You may have suppressed some thoughts and feelings so much that it seems impossible to include them by experiencing them as they are. In that case, do not distract yourself from the discomfort, the suppression has caused somewhere in the body by looking for explanations but simply experience it as it is. This may seem unbearable, but if you do not try to stop or change it, the experience fades away because it cannot be defined when totally included. This also includes the way you defined the thoughts and feelings in regards to who or what you once suppressed. Consequently, you are set free from your own imprisonment.

Read about not being exclusive but inclusive in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is completeness. In hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality you can read about not defining what you feel as something specific, so it becomes dualistic and you feel complete.

Thoughts only seem disturbing when you believe they are yours. This you do because they apparently can be used to prove, that you are what you believe to be. But if there is no need to be something, in particular, you do not need thoughts to prove anything. As they, therefore, are of no interest to you, there is no need to meditate to get rid of them.

Those into meditation would be better off switching to SSRIs or beta-blockers and use the time saved to explore the world where they appear to be. That would honour their choice in believing to be there. Hence they can correct it.

If you meditate to find peace inside yourself, you believe there is a difference between inside and outside. Hence you confirm that which seems to hide peace, namely separation.

The correction does not come from having insights, being at peace, deeper or something else that is founded on the belief in being someone definitive but from being nothing. That is the correction.

This does not mean you cannot have a house, for example, but that it is not perceived to be yours, therefore, do not attest to you as somebody. It is just something you pretend to be. Read more about that hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.
