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

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

If you are into giving or sending love, you believe separation is reality, as without it there would be no ´you´ to give or send love to ´others´. The same applies to being 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.

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 – inclusive astral worlds and whatnot. The graphic is grabbed from the web

The previous hack, namely, 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 is no layers on top of that which is one. That is not possible, because there is nothing outside of it.

As there a world where there seems to be more than one only appears to be there when you believe there is more than one, any explanation about such a world is an illusion, and there are no 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 seems 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 experience because of 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.


NOTE: This article is part of hack #2.5 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality.

SX Nobody in a game is real – only the player is

lowLatencyHeadTrackingIn the two previous articles What is life, where does it come from, and what is the meaning? and Everything lifeless is a symbol of life, you are promised an explanation of what a person in the world is and how it is made. But as a person is to be compared to Santa Claus, who is a fantasy, 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 #2.2 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.

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 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.

The native country of Alexius is Denmark, but nowadays he mostly is 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 this island. Also, he 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 feel like he is far away from home.

The premise of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings is, that a world defined by time and space is an imagination, but as long as you believe it to be real, you better adjust its reality.

This is not to say, that Denmark is better than his new resort or the other way around. It is a metaphor to illustrate, that if you are reading this, you are not in a spiritual but a physical world. And spirituality cannot be applied to a physical world, where the currency has to be tangible. So even though that which is you actually is formless and non-dual, the reality of duality is very tangible things like food, clothes and friends are needed in order to survive.

You can, of course, choose to leave the world of duality 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 appears to be far from home in a world defined by time and space.

If you long to come back home to that which is one, you believe to have left it. That is not possible, however, since oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is one. Hence it is only the belief that you have left it, that needs to be undone.

When the apparent difference between what you like and dislike does not make a difference you are on the way back home to the formlessness of that which is you. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The way home
It is very simple to return home: When you are fed up by pretending to be someone definitive, you look at the appearances, that used to amaze or disgust you, and their apparent differences do not make a difference anymore. Hence there is nothing to confirm the belief in separation and without it the experience of duality is not possible.

It is not replaced by heaven or some kind of astral world, as all contrasts like heaven and hell physical and astral world are part of duality. So it is not replaced by anything, as it takes more than one to be or have something. Yet there is no belief in duality to hide, there is no more than that which is one.

´To return home´ may not be the best way of putting it, because that which is you is not in a world of duality, so nobody is returning to non-duality. As a metaphor, you could say, that from non-duality you are streaming a fictional video with a world of duality, where you choose to identify yourself with a specific appearance, that through artificial sensors called senses feels as if it is real and having exciting experiences.

Bill Murray in Groundhog Day experiencing the same day again and again is thinking, that there is nothing to do about it. Fortunately it is just a role he is playing in a movie, so nothing needs to be done, because it is not real. It may seem so, if you do not play your part fully, so to undo the belief in the movie as real just give it your best shot as an appearance there. The image is grabbed from the web.

Bill Murray, who in the movie ´Groundhog Day´ experience the same day again and again, thinks that he is trapped But by involving himself fully in the character he appear to be, he is set free from the it. Likewise you are set free from the believe in being someone definitive, when you completely are involved in the appearance of you as someone definitive – instead of trying to be detached or in other ways distance yourself from what your appearance in a world of duality. The image is grabbed from the web.

You may have seen Groundhog Day with Bill Murray. He wakes up every morning repeating the same day until it turns out to his satisfaction, whereupon he effortlessly gets the woman of his dreams.

Regarding this article your dreams will not be fulfilled in the end though. On the contrary. All dreams must be called. When you remember to forget them, there is nothing to hide non-duality. But you will not know, that you have had a dream, where you appeared to be in a world of duality, as to know something requires more than one, and non-duality is that which is one. In other words, to not know what and where you are is to welcome non-duality.

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. As a matter of fact, there never was. The video and the universe it seems to reflect is make-believe.

The world of duality is a deception – just like Santa Claus
There is no reason to insist, that some appearances in a world of duality are wrong. Appearances can only be wrong if they exist – and they do not. Hence there is no reason to convince anybody, that the world is an illusion.

The belief in a world of duality is as harmless as the belief in Santa Claus. Sooner or later everybody realises, that it is not possible for an old man to fly in the sky on a sleigh driven by reindeer´s and that he is also too fat to crawl down the chimney with lots of presents. Just like it is not possible to appear as someone definitive in a world of duality.

The only thing to learn from believing in the illusion of Santa Claus is, that he is not real. There is no reason, however, not to enjoy the excitement of the belief, while it lasts. Likewise, there is no reason not to enjoy the fantasy of duality, even though it is a deception as non-duality is the formlessness of that which is one, and formlessness is endless, so there is nothing else than non-duality.

To undo the belief in a world of duality
If you think there is something in a world of duality that can hurt you, you are making it real. But when you know such a the world is a deception, you smile at the silly idea, that something can upset you, and so you are free to act upon it in any way you fancy.

Just like in a video game you are free to act and kill all your enemies if that is your part to play. It can be quite fun indeed when know it is not real. This is, however, not a recommendation to kill anybody in physical life. But to allow yourself having fun to imagine it.

There are of course lots of other parts, you can play. You can, for example, respond with love and compassion, cry in desperation or whatever do what intuitively pops up in the same way you automatically respond by returning a ball, when somebody throws one towards you.

To conclude: As long as you appear to be someone in a world of duality give it your best shot. Do not leave anything undone. 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.

You are using the senses to fool yourself into believing, that you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, so that it appears, as if it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. The image is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX:
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 universe is unreal because nothing unreal can be seen from that which is real. Well, nothing at all can be seen, as reality is that which is one and it takes more than one to see something. Whatever you prove is wrong, as it takes more than one to prove anything


NOTE: This article is part of hack #1.4 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

Life is neither a cause or an effect, there is no karma!

If the car in this image makes you feel in a specific way, you are constructing an effect yourself. The image has no power to create any effect at all.

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

Karma promotes the idea, that a physical, mental or emotional respond is an effect caused by a past action. But when you for example hammer a nail into the wall, you get an immediate physical effect of the nail moving into the wall. And this is not an effect of something you did in the past or in a so-called former life, but of something you do right now, so if you see a connection to the past it is a fabrication of your own.

If you hit your finger while hammering on the nail and remember you once hit somebody else, there is no cause and effect in play except. unless you invent it. Hitting the finger is just an accident. Nothing in your past that caused it, neither is there anything set in motion for the future, apart from going to the doctor if the finger was hit very hard.

Karma is a construction of yours
The above conclusion is disappointing, if you want causal connections to imply, your appearance as someone specific has a special meaning. However, as that which is you is the formlessness of that which is one, it is completely meaningless to appear as if you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, so such a connection have to be fabricated.

To suffer from bodily pain just because you accidentally hit your finger does not make you appear to be someone interesting, but by making a connection to for example your father, as if the pain relates to the sadness you seemed to cause him in your childhood, you have a basis for a story of cause and effect, where you and your father are part of something greater, so that you appear to be someone special with a higher purpose.

On top of that such an invention of cause and effect makes it possible to justify any thought, emotion or action as ´caused´ by something greater, so that destiny can be used to justify everything you think, feel and do. In this way you appear as innocent and something as guilty. Yet it never work as intended, because having excluded something from yourself by projecting it on something that is judged to be outside of you will not feel innocent but guilty.

If you feel upset and you justify it with what you perceive somebody else to have done or not done, you will feel instant guilt and probably also fear, as you will be afraid of the retaliation you expect from those you have judged to cause you feeling upset.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Every time you look for something, that seems to be able to justify your current state, 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 of cause and effect. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Your construction of karma has no effect in the future but now
Every time you look for something that seems to justify your current state, it will appear to be caused by that and therefore to be an effect of it. Hence your state of mind feels real right now. So this fabrication of cause and effect is not something you will feel in the future but in the same moment, you exclude feelings from yourself by justifying them as caused by something judged to be separated from you.

Most want to believe the idea of karma, because if they are caused by something, the conclusion seems to be they exist.

But if you do not construct this connection, there is no cause. And as an effect cannot exist without a cause and vice versa, there is no specific state of mind. In other words, if you do not justify what you seem to think or feel it has no effect and so karma falls apart.

As the oneness of life is formless, it is without beginning and end and therefore everything. Hence nothing else could have caused it, neither can it cause anything else. In other words, whatever appears as if it is ruled by cause and effect is lifeless.

The concept of karma seems to prove, that a world where there seems to be more than one is real. But this proof is just as silly as when a little child believes Santa Claus is the cause of presents and based on this assumption of cause and effect concludes that Santa is real.


NOTES: 

++ INTRO TO HACK #1.1, If you are looking for the truth, you have come to the wrong place

Your appearance as someone definitive is not more real than a doll appearing to be someone specific. The experience of life inside you or a toy is make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

There is no truth in a world where there seems to be more than one, neither is there a higher truth beyond it, or in Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings. The conclusion, therefore, may be to stop looking for truth and accept the moment as it is. Yet there is not something to conclude because that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one since it is formless and therefore endless.

That which is real is the formlessness of oneness – and as formlessness is endless, it is everything. Hence you are not someone in a world where there seems to be more than one unless you believe, that it is possible to be and have more than everything.

As that which is you is no different from that which is one and as it takes more than one to understand something, the above has not been recognized. Nor has it been read, if not pretending to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one – just like within the context of such a world one can pretend to be someone in the virtual world of a game.

Pretending to be someone in a game, you do not look for your true self, freedom, wellness or anything else in its world, because you know you are not there. Instead, you have fun pretending to be someone in a virtual world.

When you see there is no help to get in finding to that which is one, you are free from the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. Be aware that this, like most of Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings, is to be perceived in the context of that which is one. In a world where there seems to be more than one, there may indeed be cases where help is needed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But if you perceive the world to be real and you actually are there, you must continuously look for somebody or something perceived to be different from you and thus attest to you being someone definitive. Hence the fun is replaced by the hard work of making nothing approve of something. See the article Help, I Need Somebody.

If you search for that kind of acknowledgement, you have come to the wrong place, because Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings are about undoing the belief, it is possible to be someone at all.

Just like Santa Claus is make-believe, so is what you appear to be. No transformation or transcendence will expose what this belief seems to hide. But when it is undone, it does not appear to hide that which is real.

Only what is not real can be found or realised.

This does not mean reality will be revealed because it is that which is one and it takes more than one to disclose something.

So be happy, if you sense the nothingness of what you believe to be but do not know that which is real, because assuming that you do will not set you free. Instead, it will imprison you in the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one since it takes more than one to know anything.
