PMT No belief can survive inclusion, because a belief is based on excluding something

Separation is make-believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 1:
If you are into giving or sending love, you believe separation is the reality, as without division there would be no ´you´ to give or send love to ´others´. The same applies to be empathic with others or some other do-gooder idea. Any kind of being excludes something, so that you can become someone, who makes a difference by generously giving to those you judge to be or have less than you.

As it takes more than one to believe in something, it is not possible to believe in anything in the reality of that which is one, unless imagined there is more than that which is one

The imagination of this can be compared to covering your eyes with your hands, so there does not appear to be anything else than the fantasy. To this illusion all that is needed is to take away your hands.

Believing Santa Claus is bringing gifts to all good children one night a year does not change anything. The gifts are coming from your parents. Likewise believing that it is possible to be and have more than which is one is not gonna make it real. Yet this childish belief hides the obvious, namely that there is no more than that which is one.

To have something specific is not possible, as there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one. But to have everything is not just possible, it is the reality of oneness, because formlessness is endless.

Any belief is an exclusion of that which is one, as it takes more than one to believe something. The inclusion of a belief, however, undoes the idea that there is more than that which is one. In other words, no need to stop giving or sending love or anything else you believe to be real, as the inclusion of this nonsense undoes the value you attributed to give and receive love and therefore that it is possible to be separated from that which is one.

Taking everything personal is a way way to keep distance and therefore to confirm separation and that you are something special. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Taking everything personal is a way to enhance the belief in being someone definitive, who is separated from a world experienced to be outside of what you believe to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
If you judge for example the wind to have the power to change your state of mind, you believe to be a person in a world where there seems to be more than one and the wind to do something personally to you, even though it does not know you. This applies as well to the other appearance that looks like you. They do not know you – neither themselves, because there is no self. Hence it is make-believe that something personal has ever been done to you.

The sun never rises or sets, because it does not move around the earth. It is the earth, that moves around the sun, but as you consider yourself to be the crown of creation, you think you are the centre of everything.

What seems to be you is a fabrication based on what you perceive to be moving around you, and as that perception is the result of what you have excluded from what you believe to be you, what is perceived to be outside of you is experienced as very personal.

Whether you perceive to give love or hate, the belief in separation is enhanced, because only if you believe that you and the receiver is separated can you perceive to give something.

Although it appears to cause much pain keeping a personality together by perceiving a personal world outside of it, you compulsively go on to judge everything as personal, because that is the way to hide the impersonal reality of that which is one.

To be a boy, you must exclude being a girl, and so defined as a boy you long for the girl you have excluded – and vice versa.The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:
If you do not adjust to the established concepts of a world where there seems to be more than one and make sure to appear as a man when you have a penis or a woman when you have none, you are judged as a traitor to society and thus excluded from it. This separation makes both those that seem to be part of society those excluded from feeling more alive, as they mistake separation the feeling of being someone definitive for being alive.

Nobody is born a boy or a girl though. Those concepts are just like the value added to the colour of skin, age and whatnot appearing to define you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one are a construction of thoughts compiled to keep everybody in predefined categories, so that they are confirmed as someone definitive separated from a world defined to be outside of them. But you cannot be someone definitive, as it takes more than one to be someone, and you are that which is you is the formlessness of oneness.

You are not an American, a Russian, a Christian or a musician. You are nothing at all. It is just something you want to believe, so that you appear to be and something contrary to the formless of oneness, that has nothing, as it takes more than one to have something.

Yet it seems possible to believe that you are someone definitive and maintain that belief by following the concepts of the world. This conditioning may seem as if it is forced upon you by parents and society. But that is not so. You freely adhere to them in order to be in the rat race for being and having more than that which is one.

This is not to say, that you must stop this in order to not hide the formlessness of that which is one by the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one. As such a world is not real, you need not to change anything there, but the belief that you are there.

What you want to hide from your personality, you exclude by projecting it onto others, so that you can be defined as better than them. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 4:
Being exclusive you appear to be the opposite of what you exclude. If you exclude what you judge to be bad, for example, you appear to be good. In other words, you are defined by what you exclude. That is the way to be somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The main reason for being exclusive is that being inclusive you will not appear to be entirely correct but also mistaken, and being mistaken must be avoided at any cost in order not to be reminded of your original mistake, namely to believe in separation.

To be inclusive instead of exclusive is not complicated at all but plain simply, as all you have to do is to not exclude. If you, however, are not aware of how you continuously exclude something judged to be bad in order to make others appear as wrong and you as right, you cannot choose not to exclude and thus stop the glorification of separation.

You do not become nobody by excluding what makes you appear to be someone specific but by including it. When everything definable is included there is nothing excluded to define you as someone specific.

But when you realise that being someone definitive in a world in a world where there seems to be more than one does not have a happy ending no matter how much you exclude in order to become better, you know choosing to be exclusive is not in your own best interest and so you are ready to stop it. As that means you are all-inclusive, there is nobody but you. You are alone together with the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

When nothing is excluded there is no feeling of being something, neither of being alone or anything else, as there is no more than the formlessness of oneness, and it takes more than one to be something.

It does not seem to hide that which is one anymore though because it is no different from that the oneness of that which is you.

If you focus on the contrasts of this image, you probably end up deducing something and therefore conclude, you are someone definitive looking at something that you understand. But if you defocus, the contrasts disappears and there is not something to deduce and therefore nothing to understand. When you do not understand anything, you do not know what and where you are and so there is no knowledge to hide that which cannot be known, namely the formlessness of oneness.

»Confirmation bias refers to a type of selective thinking whereby one tends to notice and to look for what confirms one´s beliefs, and to ignore, not look for, or undervalue the relevance of what contradicts one´s beliefs.« The Skeptic´s Dictionary.

PART 5:
Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings
are written from the perspective of nobody, but as most fight hard to appear as if they are somebody, they automatically twist them into something that confirms their belief in being unique.

To make it look as if there is more than one in the world, your thoughts are constantly used fabricate an image of somebody appearing to be outside of the thoughts you have compiled to be you. In this way, specific thoughts establish you as someone thinking them and other thoughts of you meeting somebody else.

When you do not believe the division of thoughts into me and them makes a difference the fabrication of you as someone definitive cannot be upheld. In other words, when the specific thoughts, that are excluded from what appears to be you in order to make it appear as if there are more than you, are included instead, there does not appear to be anybody outside of you and therefore nobody to acknowledge you like somebody.

If you want to believe, that you are unique with your own path to follow and that there is someone special only for you, you do not want the reality of that which is one, because in the formlessness of oneness nobody is unique, since it requires more than one to be unique or anything at all. In other words, there is nobody in the formlessness of oneness. Neither anywhere else, as formlessness is endless.

Hence there is no separation and thus nobody else but you. Not the limited you, that you believe to be, but that which is everything, namely the formlessness of oneness. See also hack #3.3 Phasing out the personality by not being exclusive.

But as that which is everything is formless, it seems to be nothing in a world defined by time and space, so most choose to interpret not being exclusive but inclusive as a way to own one´s thoughts or to accept, as this implies they are someone definitive understanding Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Yet they forget, that to understand them is to not know what they are about because the formlessness of oneness cannot be known since there is no more than that which is one.

Believing to be someone specific you want to feel validated by resonating with somebody or something perceived to be like-minded.. If you find such validation in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings you have overlooked their basic message, namely that there is no more than that which is one and therefore nothing to resonate with.

When the duality hacks are applied there is nobody to understand them because they neutralise all contrasts, and without them, there is not something to perceive, neither someone to perceive anything.

What you seem to think or do only matters if you believe, you are someone specific. When you are nobody nothing matters, neither if you seem to think or do as if it does, because there is no ´I´ with the intention of manifesting itself to be somebody.

So if you had expected inclusion to be the way to something new, you have gotten it wrong. Inclusion leads to nothing. But when there is nothing, there is not something to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

The idea of living in the now is an attempt to exclude what is judged to be bad, so you can be judged as good.The graphic is grabbed from the web.


The idea of getting freedom and power from living in the now is an attempt to exclude what is judged to be bad so you can be judged as good and only that. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX:
There seem to be certain thoughts, that need to be avoided before you can be living in the now. according to the concepts established about the nowThis means, however, that you are not living now but later.

More to the point, you are living in the past, because the now that is supposed to come when negative thoughts and whatnot has been excluded is a result of your past ideas or doctrines about what is now and what is now, whereas in a perfect moment everything is now, since it includes everything, no matter if you are thinking of the past in a regretting or happy way, or about the future in worried or excited fashion.

Who but those, who judge others to be bad, have the need to appear as good?

In other words, the search for freedom in the now is an attempt to escape the present moment as it is by editing it and thereby avoiding its intimacy.


NOTES:

  • For the not so spiritual-minded person, the goal may be to be a bad-ass, but that is just another way of following concepts of how to become someone definitive so you can fence off the intimacy of being all-inclusive by always respond in relation to the personality you have created.

The peace of that which is real

There is no Santa Claus up in the sky on a sleight full of presents to you. It is make-believe and so is the world – inclusive astral world and whatnot.The graphic is grabbed from the web

There is no Santa Claus in the sky on a sleigh full of gifts on his way to all the good the children. It is make-believe, and so is a world of duality because it takes more than one to experience something, including astral worlds and whatnot. the web

The previous hack, hack #2.3 Life is flat, is about how a world where there seems to be more than one seems to hide that which is one. This does not mean, however, that a world where there seems to be more than one can hide that which is one. Nothing can hide it, because there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless. Hence a world where there seems to be more than one is make-believe – just like within the context of such a world the gifts in the sleigh of Santa Claus is make-believe – and as what you believe is what you seem to see, it appears to hide non-duality.

So to speak of a world where there seems to be more than one as a layered virtual reality on top of that which is a metaphor. There are no layers on top of that which is one. That is not possible, because there is nothing outside of it.

Yet a world where there seems to be more than one only appears to be there when you wish to see more than one. Any explanation about such a world, however, is an illusion. Also that there is a way back to the formlessness of that which is one other than undoing the belief that there is more than that.

This you do not want. Just like it seems more exciting, that it is Santa Claus bringing you gifts and not your parents, the thrill of being someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one sounds more appealing than the peace of that which is one, so you choose to believe the weird story of a world where there seems to be more than one. 

That is until – in the context of the Santa Claus metaphor – you stop believing there is a sleigh full of gifts, and that those gifts you get, you receive because of your parents.

In other words, the excitement you seem to experience in a world where there seems to be more than one is only possible to sense due to that which is real, namely that which is one, and which cannot be believed, seen or experienced, as that requires more than one. That is why it is so peaceful.

To be that which is peace, and nothing else, you must give up being charged by excitement. The graphic is from the internet.

PART 2:
The peace of that which is one has no contrast, which is why it is not to be found in a world where there seems to be more than one. In such a world, the experience of peace is contrasted by the war in order for you to know when you are at peace. In the formlessness of oneness peace, however, is not the absence of war. It is rather the absence of a world where there seems to be more than one – or more correctly, the absence of excitement.

There are lots of excitement to find in a world where there seems to be more than one, but no matter what you are excited about, you are bound to lose it – if not before then for sure when you die. So fear of losing what you have follows in the footsteps of excitement – also if you try to tone down feelings via meditation or similar techniques used to deny specific parts of a world where there seems to be more than one.

To make long short, if you want the peace, that cannot be experienced since it has no contrast, you must give up being charged by the excitement that seems to come for example a new spouse, home, vacation, state of mind or whatever lights your fire, because there is no excitement in that which is one. That is why it is so peaceful.

Two or more can become one, not in the world though, but together you can undo the dream of separation. As you appear to be more than one in the world, you are more than enough to undo it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 3:
All searching is based on the sense that something is missing, and so searching on a psychological level will enhance this sense of loss.

If you search for something, you must have forgotten that which is you, as it is no different from that which is one, and as it is formless, it is endless, so that which is you is and has everything. Hence searching for something is a denial of that which is you.

In other words, you have not chosen to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one to reestablish that which is you. On the contrary, you want to escape it by searching for something larger than life.

Yet there is nothing larger than life. Not because it is the largest – life is smaller than a period in this article – but because there is no more than the oneness of life.

The reason scientists have not been able to find the source of life is that there is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one. Such a world is to be compared to a dream. Though it is only possible due to the one dreaming it, the dreamer is not in it. Nor is anything else. It is nothing by empty space.

Likewise, in the dream of a world where there seems to be more than one. It may look real, and it may seem as you can find something there that is larger than the oneness of life and thus makes you greater. This excitement you will not give up for the peace of that which is one.

And you do not need to since there is no more than that which is one, so there is no dream and therefore nothing to give up, except the belief that there is.

PART 4:
If you are new to Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, you may expect to find something exciting in them, that can be used to improve your appearance as a person in the world or to transform this person to a better and more spiritual one. If this is what you expect, you will not find what you think you need in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, and elsewhere you will just get empty promises about a merry-go-round world to come in the future.

Peace cannot be experienced, as it is the formlessness of that which is one, and it takes more than one to experience something. So when there is no experiences, neither so-called spiritual or mundane, there is nothing to hide there is no more than that which is one.

What you need is peace, and that cannot be found. Fortunately, that is not necessary, because peace is that which is you. If this is not obvious, it may be because, you think, what you need is excitement. That is not peaceful, because whatever you get excited about, will slowly vanish. This includes so-called spiritual states. Even if something seems to remain the same, your excitement will not, as the foundation of a world where there seems to be more than one is the belief that there must be more.

What a world where there seems to be more than one is all about is the hope for more excitement, that based on past dreams is expected to be found in future appearances. When there is nothing to hope for, it is pretty boring to appear as if you are in such a world. But the more bored you are, the more you are bidding welcome the peace of that which is one.

Instead of questioning this belief, everybody joins in groups of socialism, capitalism, spirituality and whatnot hoping to find something better and lasting that will keep them forever excited. If you are in such a group, you will not like the ending of this article, because it has no more to say and no solution for you, but to undo the belief that is hiding the peace of that which is one, namely the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

A telly has a constructed personality, but no self or soul.

Telly has a personality, but it has no self or soul. If it seems so, it is purely make-believe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 5:
These days it can be hazardous to believe you have a self. Recently 12 persons died trying to snap a spectacular selfie. In the same period, eight had their self eaten by a whale – or rather their belief in being a self. So far, however, nobody has actually found this self.

It is like trying to find a self in a television. It has no self. None of the things that it ts is made by itself. It does not even know who is broadcasting and what is broadcasted.

To be empty as a telly does not mean, that there are no thoughts, but that they are not considered to come from someone definitive.

Not knowing what and where you are, you are just as empty as a telly. Hence there is not something to be excited about and therefore not something to hide the peace of that which is one.

It is very seldom, that the clouds are that low like in this pic shot an early morning from my terrace, but whether I experience th beauty of it directly or not, the experience will not last.

PART 6:
Peace in a world where there seems to be more than one always comes from something, maybe from the experience of being with your spouse away from everything, being a special beautiful place in nature untouched by humans or being meditative in surroundings without noise. But no experience last, neither do any of the appearances that seem to cause the experience of peace. Silence will sooner or later be replaced by noise, and it is not possible to always be in a place experienced to be beautiful or meditative.

Peace as experience will never last. Therefore the experience of it – just like any other experience – entails fear of losing it.

As an experience of peace is based on excluding something, for example, noise, disturbing persons or thoughts, it is is based on what is absent, and so you can never have it without its opposite.

In reality, there is only that which is one, so there is nothing to experience, neither is there someone who can be disturbed, as that requires more than one. In other words, in reality, peace is not an experience but the perpetual present of that which is one.

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

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


NOTE: This article is part of hack #2.4 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality.

Nobody in a game is real – only the player is

lowLatencyHeadTrackingIn the previous articles What is life, where does it come from, and what is the meaning? you were promised an explanation of what a person in the world is and how it is made. But that is like having to explain what Santa Claus is made of. There is no answer to this. Yet – just like you may be able to explain how come the fantasy of Santa Claus appeals to children even though it is not reasonable – you may be able to explain how come, you believe to be a person in the world by comparing this belief to the experience of the virtual world in the games from Oculus VR.

The excitement of a virtual world
The Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 is the latest development in virtual reality games. When you wear the glasses from Oculus VR, you do not see the world, as you know, but the virtual world presented to you in the glasses.

So when you turn your head down and look at your legs, you do not see your legs, as you are used to. Instead, you may see them covered by a red spacesuit. And when you look up you may see the ceiling of a spaceship, that you appear to be flying. The world you saw, before you took on the glasses, seems to be gone and replaced by a more exciting world.

Suddenly you are in a fight somewhere in space, where other pilots in other spaceships try to kill you. If you are fast enough, you kill them first – but if not, it is the end of you as a pilot in the virtual world – and the screen turns black.

The excitement of an illusion does not last
You could say, that Oculus VR is just a replication of how a world defined by time and space is constructed in the sense, that it covers our eyes in the same way as the glasses from Oculus VR so that it seems to be the only reality. You think you are a person in its virtual world, but you are not. You are the one with the glasses on and what you appear to be in the game an illusion.

Even though virtual reality is a fabrication done via a computer, it feels tangible and therefore experienced to be real, because you move your head in the physical world to see what is up and down in the virtual world.

Just like a virtual game seems more exciting than your daily life of the world, a world defined by time and space seems more exciting than the formlessness of that which is one, where there is nothing but the peace of oneness. The excitement comes with a price though. Nothing in a world defined by time and space lasts. Therefore you will always fear loss. And contrary to the formlessness of that which is one, that has no beginning or end, you are bound to end in a world defined by time and space.

This is not a problem though, if you remember, you are the player and not the person you pretend to be in a virtual world. This person is an illusion and no matter how much it meditates or purifies itself, it will never be transformed into something real but remain as a fabrication of your fantasy.

All experiences are fabricated by the brain, and if they seem to come from inside or outside, from the heart, god, astral worlds or anywhere else is part of the fabrication. The brain, however, can only process something definable, so it cannot process the formlessness of that which is one.

If you sense the conclusion of this article, you know, that what appears to be you in a world defined by time and space is an illusion. It is not that which is you because that is the reality of that which is one, which should not come as a surprise if you are a long time reader of my non-teaching. And have you read the previous articles in hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life you may have grabbed, that when do not believe to someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, but see your and any other appearance as a symbol of that which is real.

You cannot see the power station in your living room. Yet it is due to that, your room is illuminated by night, so that you can experience the room.

You cannot see the power station in your living room. Yet it is due to that, your room is illuminated by light so that it can be experienced in the darkness. The image is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX:
If the world is an illusion, we – as somebody there – cannot know if there is anything else than the world. Such knowledge would also be an illusion and so would any hope. The most realistic thing – although still illusionary – is to not know and hope.

However, just like the virtual world of a video game is constructed with the help of elements from the physical world, although there are no physical elements in a virtual world, it is most likely that the illusion of the world is constructed with the help of that which is real, although it cannot be experienced in an illusion. What can be experienced though are symbols of the that which makes it possible to fabricate the illusion of the world.


NOTES:

Far from Home

This is a pic from the late evening on the island, where I stay nowadays. It would be plain stupid to wear a warm sweater, as I would do in my native country in the evening. Everything differs from the memory of life, that I have from my home.

This is an image from a late evening on the island, where Alexius stays nowadays. Everything there differs from the memory of the life that he has from his native country, where he definitely would have had to wear a warm sweater on an evening this time of the year – but it would be plain stupid to do that where he appears to be now. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
The native country of Alexius is Denmark, but nowadays he mostly stays on an island close to Africa. So if he wants to enjoy the moment, as it appears to be there, he has to forget about the ways of Denmark, which are quite minimalistic, and instead convert to the more maximalistic way of the island. He also has to adapt to a new language, change to a new currency and adjust to many other things. Even though he seems to be good at that and having fun doing it, deep inside, he is still Danish and sometimes feels like he is far from home.

This is not to say that one country is better than the other. It is a metaphor to illustrate, that if you are reading this, you are not in a spiritual but a physical world and the currency of spirituality is, therefore, useless. You need tangible food, clothes and friends to survive there.

You can, of course, choose not to do that and return to the formlessness of non-duality. But as long as you appear to be someone in a world of duality, by all means, go for the physicality of it. There is nothing to lose. That which is you is still formless and non-dual and will always be, even though it for some time seems to be a substantial being far from home in a physical world.

When the apparent difference between what you like and dislike does not make a difference, the belief in duality is being undone.

Besides, you do not need to return home. You have never left it. That is not possible since oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one. Hence it is only the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one, that needs to be undone.

Metaphorically speaking, it is as if you from non-duality stream a fictional video of duality. You pretend to be someone in it, and due to artificial sensors its is felt to be real.

When what and where you experiece to be is something you pretend, each moment is entertaining. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Applying the duality hacks, you do not have to strugle for satisfaction. there is nothing you need to improve or refrain from because they sync with the moment as it is and not how you think it should be. In other words, they do not fulfil your dreams. On the contrary. All dreams must be called.

When you remember to forget them, you are in sync with the moment as it is. This happens automatically if you pretend to be someone because then there is noone to dream about a better future.

When the fictional video is finished, you play it over and over again, until you are satisfied with the way you perceive your appearance. When this is accomplished, you forget all about streaming, and that there ever was a video. Actually, there never was. The video and the duality it seems to reflect is make-believe.

Playing the video, again and again, in the hope that it gets better, is as harmless as believing Santa Claus will bring you present. So there is no reason not to enjoy the excitement of the belief, while it lasts. Especially when you start to grasp, it is a deception.

That sets you free to go enjoy it as a magic show in which you respond with love and compassion, cry in desperation or whatever intuitively pops up at the moment, just like you automatically respond by returning a ball coming your way.

To conclude: As long as you appear to be someone in a world of duality give it your best shot. If anything is skipped, chances are you want to keep on playing the game until you get it right. When everything is done, you are undone as someone in a world of duality.

INTERLUDE:
You cannot prove an illusion is real. That is why neither scientist, philosophers or those believing in the idea of an almighty God have not been able to explain the creation of the universe. Neither can you prove the world is unreal because nothing unreal can be seen from that which is real. Actually, nothing can be seen at all, because reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to see something. For the same reason, whatever you realise or prove is wrong, as it takes more than one to understand or verify something.

PART 2:
It takes time to learn to pretend to be a specific person. When Alexius was a child, he learned how to pretend to be a Danish person in a cold climate. Nowadays, he is learning how to pretend to be a Spanish person in a warm environment because that is where he seems to be.

He is learning to pretend to be a person who speaks loud, shouts at waiters, enjoys having breakfast in a bar around 11AM, thinks 8PM is too early for dinner and does not say ´thank you´. Also, he is learning to pretend to be a person who greets a woman by kissing them on both cheeks and who is not politically correct but says nigger and mix things in non-established ways.

These are some of the things, that seems to define a Spanish person in the public room – at least as seen from the perspective of someone formerly conditioned to be a Danish.

Suffice to say is that every country has its own definition of how to be in their part of the world, and if you want to be acknowledged as if you are somebody there, you must pretend to be someone who lives by the local rules

This also applies to smaller groups of people – even in a love relation, where the amount of love you seem to get depends on how good you are in pretending to be and have what the other one needs.

It is not possible for that which is you to feel happy or sad because it takes more than one to feel something and that which is you is no different from that which is one. But imagining to be in a world where there seems to be more than one it is, however, it seems possible to feel happy or sad.

Fortunately, the apparent difference between these or any other contrasting feelings does not make a difference, when the one who appears to feel them is someone you pretend to be.

Pretending to be someone definitive instead of believing to be one does not mean that everything will work out in the way you expect. But it means that when something does not work out as planned and a feeling of sadness pops by, it does not feel wrong because it is something you pretend to feel. That which is you is not sad. Neither anything else, because it is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to be anything.

If you, on the other hand, believe to be someone specific, for example a Danish person, you will judge many things in other countries to be wrong and feel that people there, and not you, must change. Fortunately, this is not so for Alexius. He has fun pretending to be what and where he is not.

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.

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.

You do not reap as you sow, and you do not get presents from Santa Claus, unless you are superstitious.

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 justify 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.

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.

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.

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

According to science, the universe has not been created by something. The explosion called the big bang came from out of nothing. And as there is no effect without a course, there is no universe. It is a fantasy.

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.

APPENDIX:
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, the experience of it is an illusion. So if you are real, you are not there. 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.
