You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference

Searching for the meaning of life is stressing, because it has no meaning

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one can you search for the meaning of life. Yet it is not to be found there or anywhere else, because it takes more than one to find something and life is that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from Ello.

The way that letters are put together in various shapes makes it possible for us to attribute a special meaning to each of the constructions. And when they are organised in sentences like in this article, for example, the combination of different shapes is experienced to make up a story inside of us, so that although the meaning of those shapes have been attributed by ourselves, we feel the story, that seems to evolve from them, confirms us to be somebody in a world defined by time and space.

Reality is that which is one, and as it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be experienced.

Let us imagine, that the letters we believe to confirm us as somebody definitive in a world defined by time and space are the same letters making up the formlessness of oneness. But unlike in the world, where we believe to be and where we experience everything as separated by time and space, there is no space to keep anything apart in the formlessness of oneness, since it has no space.

Although the story of you as someone definitive is made up by yourself, you have not made a story about a happy person but a destructive one, because you hate the restrictions of being limited and not formless.

Thus the letters, that the formlessness of oneness consists of in this fable about it, cannot be distinguished from each other, and therefore not organised in shapes, that added together in specific ways seem to establish a story of us as separated beings in a world defined by time and space.

In non-duality there is no differences

In non-duality everything is fused into one perpetual present, that no one can see, as it takes more than one to see something. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A world defined by time and space is a slowed down version of the formlessness of oneness
It is not only because there is no space to separate the letters in the formlessness of oneness, that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because everything moves so fast that time stands still, wherefore it is not possible to organise them in a linear way – or any other way for that matter.

So in the context of our story about time and space versus the formlessness of oneness you could say, that a world defined by time and space is a fantasy of what oneness looks like if slowed down. The slower you imagine it to be, the more there seems to be space between the shapeless letters, so they appear to be separated from each other with a definitive shape of their own.

Furthermore there seems to be time to arrange them in different combinations with each their own meaning, that added together expand into a story of a world, where time and time and space seems to separate everybody from each other.

The slowing down of oneness is therefore an attempt to gain control of it and turn its formlessness into a construction of thoughts representing specific shapes in a world defined by time and space, that they seem to be something you can manipulate to your liking. Thus the way back to oneness does not come from more control of thoughts or slowing them further down via for example meditation or stories about a quiet life on a peaceful planet, so you do not feel the speed of it, while it is hurtling round the sun at 67.000 miles an hour without you falling off.

Neither does it come from understanding this or anything else, as to understand something enhances the belief, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Whether something is experienced to be inside or outside, it is make-believe, because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of oneness and formlessness has no sides.

Non-duality has no meaning

To undo the believe in duality you must give up attributing meaning to anything, that seems to have a beginning and end, so that the apparent differences of duality does not appear to make a difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

A journey without distance takes no time
If you experience to be someone definitive, you are making up a story about a world defined by time and space from out of nothing, because oneness is formless and therefore endless, so there is not anything outside of it. It does not even have an outside, neither something inside of it, as it has no sides since it is formless.

No worries. When not attributing meaning to the letters in this article or anything else there seems to be in your story of a world defined by time and space, the story collapses, as when shapes have no meaning, there is nothing to separate them and therefore no time and space.

Since there is no more than oneness, nobody has ever left it. Thus the way back takes no time.

The fastest way to not attribute meaning to something, that appears to be there, is of course to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one,* as it promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you remember to have experienced, so that there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled, wherefore there is no story to be made.

If you, however, want to have your cake and eat it too, you can connect with the empty breath,** because it undoes the story of you in a world defined by time and space in a less abrupt way. Thus you are able to enjoy the excitement of the story, while having it undone.

The reason for this is that the empty breath does not erase the memories of you as someone in a world defined by time and space. Yet due to its flow of indifference, the apparent difference between what you believe to be and not to be is not perceived to make a difference.

Consequently there is nobody to confirm that the story of you as someone substantial in a tangible world is realwhich is why it is nothing but fun pretending that it is*** – just like in the context of that story, it is much fun pretending to be someone definitive in the virtual world of a video game.

Old school gurus and wannabes like to ask, who you are you. In this way they seem to know something that you do not know, which is a clever way of triggering your feeling of inferiority, so you feel that there is someone above you, who can help you. The guru, however, has no answer to this question, neither any help to give. Nobody has, because as the same gurus often claim, the world is an illusion or a dream. Hence to know, learn, or receive something in the world is a deception.

When you are laying in your bed having a dream, the person you believe to be can do many things, that are not possible outside of the dream. But the persons appearing to be in the dream cannot know, who they are or who is making the dream, because they are nothing and nobody is making the dream.  Thus they can never wake up. Only the dreamer can, and when it happens those who appeared to be in the dream are all gone and forgotten.

It is nobody but the ego who wants you to believe that you are someone definitive and therefore asks: Who am I?

What is not gone though is the ´stuff´ that dreams are made of , namely the energy that makes it possible for the nothingness of a dream to be experienced as if there are appearances of something in it. So if you seem to be someone in a dream and do not identify with what you appear to be there, you are the stuff that dreams are made of.

As that stuff is the dreamer, that is who you are when the dreamer wakes up. That is if you did not hang onto the belief in be somebody, while you appeared to be in the dream, and therefore had no interest in knowing the answer to questions like ´who am I?´.

Ironically enough the way to become nobody is to pretend, that you are somebody. By pretending this, you are like streaming music. It seems to be there, but comes from somewhere else.*

You are not in a dream, neither is the dream in you

You may seem to climb around naked in your dream, but you´re not. You´re doing nothing. You´re in your bed.

Ultimately it really does not matter, if you experience to live in the now, a perfect moment, the past or whatever. You are not someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. There is no more than the formlessness of that which is one, as formlessness is endless, so a world where there seems to be more than one is not real. So what you think you do ´there´ is of no importance.

While you appear to be ´there´, however, it may matter in regards to what kind of person, you pretend to be. A nice personality make it more tolerable to pretend being a person ´there´, but that is all there is to it. But ultimately nothing will help you return to the formlessness of that which is you.

You have not left the formlessness of that which is you. It is not possible – but it seems possible to imagine it and pretend being a person in a world where there are more than one. Imagining this, nobody in that world can help you return to that which is you they are only in your imagination and so are you as someone definitive ´there´. Just like within the context of such a world, the person you appear to be ´there´ is not its dreams.

The person you seem to be in a dream may be traveling around the world, but all the time you are actually the same place, namely in your bed – and the person in the dream may seem to be upset or happy, but no matter what this person is going through, the one having the dream, while laying in the bed, remains the same.

To make long short: Enjoy pretending to be someone definitive in the world in the way you see fit, but do not take it seriously, and do not think there is a way out. There is no way at all, because you are not ´there´.

All fragments are symbols of that which is cannot be fragmented

If you see everything in the world not for what they appear to be but for what they symbolise, no doubt they will lead you to what they symbolise. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Before the release of a new music album, one of its tracks is normally released as a single – at least that is how it used to be. The single, which is a fragment of the whole album, symbolises the unity that it has been separated from.

In the same manner you could say, that every appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fragment symbolising the oneness of life, which it seems to have been separated from.

But with the recent success of Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and other streaming music services something is about to change in the music industry. People are no more interested in a whole album. They just want the fragments of it that they like the best, so they can add them together with fragments from other albums in order to create their very own playlist. In other words, the time of an album as a unity is about to finish.

Some pop stars, for example Taylor Swift, appears to be fighting against this trend. She has withdrawn all her music from Spotify to make people buy her whole albums. It may not actually be because she cares about wholeness, but because she can make more money by selling whole albums than if people just stream the tracks they like.

This is not to say, that it is wrong to make money. Whatever reason Taylor Swift has for withdrawing her music from Spotify is not the scope of this article. The slow death of an album as one whole thing is meant to illustrate, how everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is about separating the whole into fragments, so you can exclude the ones you do not like and fabricate a special world showcasing your unique personality, rather than including everything, as that would not make you stand out but part of the whole..

This desire to separate and exclude comes as no surprise, as that is the foundation of a world where there seems to be more than one The very reason for imagining such a world is to be an individual that can become and have more by owning separated things for itself. This also includes realising more and hence appearing to be more spiritual.

But the more you take things out of its context and use it for personal purposes disconnected from the whole, the more you will fear the potential loss of what you think that you have achieved. To compensate for this you may take even more out of its content, so you can feel uplifted and alive by special peak experiences, when you fear loosing what you appear to be and have.

The conclusion of this is not that you would be better off looking for wholeness in a world, because there is no wholeness to find in a world where everything is separated by time and space. Yet you can find symbols of wholeness, because separation is a confirmation of the inseparable oneness, as it would not be possible to experience separation without that which is not separated. Perceived in this way the apparent differences of the world stop making a difference, as everything is a symbol of the same.

If you choose to perceive your experience of this house as a symbol of that which is one, regardless you judge it to be beautiful or ugly it symbolises the same. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Should this article for instance end now without further explanation, you may feel irritated, which makes no difference, because whatever you appear to feel is just another symbol of that which makes it possible to experience feelings, namely the oneness of life.

Often though it would be denial to say, the outcome does not matter, because it matters if you believe the apparent difference of the appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one the world make a difference. But it does not matter, when you see them all as symbols of that which makes it possible to experience them as if they are different from you, because then they are all symbolising the same.

In the context of the music story, you can say, that if you see everything in the world as different tracks symbolising an album, which already is there although yet not discovered by you, you are connected to the wholeness of the album through the symbols of it – and no doubt you will soon be able to forget about the excitement of individual tracks in the world so that they do not appear to hide the whole album called one perpetual present.

The above article should not be seen as a crusade against streaming music. No matter in what way you listen to music or do other things in the world, it is only possible due to the oneness of life, so whether you make your own playlist or not, stream or not, it is a symbol of life.

A world where there seems to be more than one is about individuality, so it would be to go against its very nature, if you do not do, what seems to be in your own best interest. This applies also, if you want to return to the oneness of life, which is not about being together as that requires more than one.

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 place 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 identified 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 have fun imagining 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.

+ Pretending to be someone definitive can be compared to streaming music

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

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

Listening to music at home has become less and less physical since the big and heavy vinyl records were replaced with a compact cassette, then a compact disc, MP3 and recently streaming music. The signals containing streaming music are everywhere. They cannot be heard as music though before an electronic device, has picked them up and translated them into music, that you can hear wherever you are, although it is not actually there.

The same principle is in play, when you experience to be a person in a world where there seems to be more than one. The brain picks up signals delivered by the senses and translates them into a streaming image of a person, who has a conscious experience of being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, although there is nothing to be conscious of, since that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless and therefore endless.*

Unfortunately you have forgotten, that what you experience to see, hear and feel as a person in a world where there seems to be more than one is just a fabrication pieced together by the brain based on its translation of what it streams through the senses. The more you pretend to be this person, however, the more it is obvious that the streaming image of you as someone definitive is a forgery.

You are not what you appear to be. It is not possible, as that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it takes more than one to appear as if you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.
