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 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 in 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.

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 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 is all-inclusive, and so every moment is a perfect moment.* Nothing is 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.

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 in not including everything – maybe 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 looses 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, inner and outer senses.


*) In hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss 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 #4.4 To be a basic self is to be good enough about the unfortunate belief of a body-mind connection where what you believe to be is the master of the body.

NOTE: This article is part of hack #2.5 Size does not matter.

Life is neither a cause or 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, for example, you get an immediate physical effect, which is not caused by the past but 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, your appearance as someone definitive 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 an extraordinary purpose.

Since the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, nothing else could have caused it, nor can life cause anything else. Consequently, everything created by something 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 the effect of it 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 emotions, 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 presents from Santa Claus. It only seems to be real when you are young and have not developed a common-sense yet.

Fortunately, this misperception of what causes events is easily corrected. You simply perceive any event as ´it is what it is.´ Doing that, it is noting specific and thus not the cause of anything in particular. Read more about this perception in hack #4.3 Being a self or no-self.

You cannot know why this picture is here. You have to make up the reason. Since the cause, therefore, 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 the effect of it 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 that you are, and therefore cannot be there. One way to know this is so is to look at the actions of, for example those of your boss, spouse or cat. You cannot see what is causing them. Even if they tell, you cannot know if they are making it up. Hence you can only ´know´, what has caused their actions, by imagining it. 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 since 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 idea that an explosion of nothing, called the big bang, magically created a universe of something – the experience of it is an illusion. So if you are real, you are not in the world. It is something you pretend to be.

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 speaking there is, of course, no sense in discussing karma, because there is no more than that which is one and it takes more than one to have karma.

What is freedom!?

VGR05-7select_032-Edit

What you think you see now is composed of many images, that as rays of light have travelled each their own distance in time before they are picked up by your eyes and transferred to the brain, which compiles them into one image that you think you see now. In a picture like this, for example, the sun is about eight minutes older than the palm trees in the front of the image, as it takes the light eight minutes to travel from the sun to the Earth. Everything in between the palm trees and the sun is between a split second and eight minutes old. And the completed image is even older because it takes time for the brain to compile all the past ones into one image. In other words, the brain deceives you into believing you are experiencing now, while it is nothing but the past that you are experiencing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Now is in the past
If you look at the sun at the present moment, you do not see how it looks now but eight minutes ago, because this is the time it takes for the light to travel from the sun to your eyes. In other words, what you think you see now is the past.

Since the distance to the stars is much bigger, it takes so long time for the images of them to reach you, that they may not even be there anymore when you experience to see them now. And since the image of something that seems close to you also have travelled in time, anything you believe to see now is a collection of images from the past, projected into the future as one image by the brain.

It extrapolates the time it takes to make a collage (read more about that here) so that the time delay in processing does not interfere with the thoughts and actions, you perceive to be going on now. In other words, now is an illusion. And so is the past.

There is no past
If you imagine, the sun has consciousness or special equipment, that makes it able to see the Earth, what it will see now is how you appeared to be eight minutes ago. Then imagine to observe you from a star which has such a distance to the Earth, that what it sees now is your birth.

Science has recently found a point so far away in this universe, that they can almost watch the beginning of the universe, as if it is happening now.

And go on to imagine a point further away in the universe from where your birth is seen now. And other points where the birth of your mother and grandmother is experienced by the universe now – also the birth of itself.

In the eyes of the universe, there is no past or future – just one perpetual present. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no future
When the birth of your mother is seen from a specific point in the universe, it appears as if there is a future for her, but from another location in the universe, her death is seen at the exact same moment as her birth.

There is no time
It is only from the limited perspective of the Earth that there seems to be a past and future with now in between them. But seen from the perspective of the universe, there is no time at all. Everything co-occurs.

There is no before and after – and consequently no reincarnation. It is an idea made up to make the experience of being someone in a world defined by time and space seems as if it is meaningful and last forever.

This can be illustrated by a TV, for example. It may have one channel showing a sci-fi movie, another one a film from the past and on yet another one a film about parallel worlds. But due to your limited mind, you only watch one channel at a time, although all of them are all playing simultaneously.

Linear time is a simulated reality layered on top of one perpetual present.

Everything that will happen has happened because it happens now. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no universe
According to science, all the elements coming from the big bang quickly organised themselves into a super pattern, that would have stagnated if perfected. But due to a few gaps, it started to expand into what became the universe. Read more about that here.

In linear time it seems as if an explosion from a black hole expanded into a world defined by time and space. In reality, though it contracted the very same moment, and nothing is left but a memory of that moment. But when it is replayed in linear time, it appears as if the world defined by time and space is still there. Read more about that here.

When the expansion of the breath is over, it is replaced by a contraction. Likewise, when the expansion of the universe is over, a contraction replaces it. Actually, it has already happened because everything happens simultaneously. The universe, therefore, begins and ends in the exact same moment. Yet that is also an illusion because the universe is nothing but empty space.

Nothing to hope for
The hope for a better future is what keeps the belief in a universe of linear time going on. Especially because hope always is accompanied by fear. First, the fear of not getting what you hope for, and when you get it, the fear of losing it. Read more about that in the hack Hope is freedom from fear in extra duality hacks.

This interaction between hope and fear keeps you entangled in the fantasy of a world defined by time and space. But since hope is the very reason for having this fantasy, it cannot be given up while you believe it is real. That is unless you do not hope for something but nothing, because then you do not have something to lose and therefore nothing to fear, so you are free from your own fantasy.

Reality is that which is one and since it is formless and therefore endless, a world defined by time and space is an illusion.

There is no freedom
Freedom, however, is an illusion. Reality is that which is one and since it is formless and therefore endless, and to be free from or to something requires more than one, it is unreal.

But while you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, the relieve it is to hope for nothing sets you free from the belief that you are there, so that you instead pretend to be there. And where you pretend to be, you are not, so even though you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are not ´there.´ Read more about that in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.


NOTE: This is article is part of hack #1.1 What and where you appear to be is make-believe.

Help, I Need Somebody

What you appear to be is a construction of thoughts, that has to be witnessed by somebody else to make it seem substantial. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you think, you are someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one, you need help because you cannot appear to be someone there without being helped by somebody or offering support to somebody so they can bear witness to you being different from them and thus someone definitive in a world, where there seems to be more than one.

According to an article, published in the journal ´Nature Communications,´ a team split a single photon in half and transmitted them to separated labs.

And so the team discovered, the divided particle did not only exists before it was observed, but that it never showed up in both of the labs at the same time. The particle that was not being witnessed by somebody ceased to exist.

Can I Get A Witness
Quantum Physics says the moon only exists when you look at it. In other words, it needs to be witnessed to appear as if it is there. The whole world is built upon this logic. Nothing in a lawsuit is true before it has been proved to be seen or heard by somebody. If something has not witnessed, it has not happened.

Since the world according to science consist of nothing solid, the perception of it as tangible must constantly be acknowledged for it to be experienced as something instead of nothing.

As one plus one is two, it follows that two plus two is four and so on. But if one plus one is not two, the whole system falls apart. Likewise, if those appearing to witness your existence do not exist except in your fantasy, neither do you.

Groups only acknowledge those, who are adjusted to their group. If you do not follow the rule as of a group, you will be punished as a traitor. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This is why it is so important to socialize – whether it is in the mind, on social media or in the so-called real world – because in this way you confirm that there are others, whom in return seem to bear witness to you being someone real. This works terrific if you are confirmed by a group – for example a country, a football team or a family – that you imagine being part of and to be better than another group. Your group, therefore, is perceived to be stronger and you to to be more real.

That is is you follow the rules of the group. If not, you are punished by exclusion until you have learned to adjust. In a courtroom, this is called justice.

Wasn´t Born To Follow
Jesus denied following the demand of the group, that urged him to withdraw, that he was a son of god and not the world. But he did not help them to bear witness to their world. As that always is seen as treason to those who believe it is real, he was judged to be excluded from it by crucifixion.

Even though upholding the appearance of being someone definitive is very hard work and the price is suffering, most persons want to remain in the club of fellow believers and discard anything or anyone not bearing witness to the belief in being someone definitive.

Hanging on the cross, he was not acknowledged anymore by his followers, and the one he seemed to follow left him. He was totally on his own, which would have been unbearable for anybody believing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, but necessary for having this belief to be undone because having followers or being a follower requires more than one, and there is no more than one.

This does not mean you feel alone. Although in the case of Jesus, everybody had left him, he did not leave them. Hence he was alone together. And since it is not possible to leave that which is one except in a fantasy of being more than one, being alone together is an obvious way to revert the fantasy. Read more about that in hack #8 ´Alone together´ is the key to that which is one. Especially because being alone together feels so good that there is no more to ask for, and thus no more to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

It makes no difference
One who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one says, that what and where you believe to be is an illusion, which appears to cover up the endlessness of that which is you. Most, however, prefer to ignore this so they can go on believing they are something, even though it is not going to last. But they softened the end with notions heaven, for example, where you forever will be something special.

Alcoholics like to follow a cure for hangovers, provided that it does not involve eliminating the cause of it, namely the alcohol. Likewise, those believing to be somebody definitive like to be cured for the suffering that this belief causes, if it does not involve eliminating the cause of their misery, namely the belief in being somebody definitive.

The unenlightened is worshipped for telling you, that you are unique and part of something greater, whereas someone compared to the enlightenment of that which is one is expelled for saying, that what you appear to be is nothing. Consequently, you are not part of anything. It is not possible because there is no more than that which is one and it requires more than one to be part of something.

Fortunately, one who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one sees no difference between being expelled or worshipped because both ways attempt to witness that a world where there seems to be more than one is real, and there is no more than that which is one, so there is nothing to witness.
