[+] You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference (in the process of being updated)

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. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The way that letters are put together in various shapes makes it possible for us to attribute a special meaning to each of them. And when the shapes are organised in rows divided by dots, like in this article, they seem to make up a story written by somebody else and read by us, and thus to confirm we are somebody in a world where there are more than one. But since the story that seems to prove this is pieced together of shapes attributed our own meaning, the story is made by ourselves and does, therefore, not prove there are more than that which is one.

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

But let us imagine, that the letters making up the shapes we believe are confirming us to be somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one are the same letters making up that which is one. Unlike in the world, where we believe to be and where everything is experienced to be separated by time and space, there is no space to keep anything apart in that which is, since that requires more than one.

Although the story of you as someone definitive is made up by yourself, it is not a happy but a sad stor, because you feel sad being separated.

Hence the letters, that oneness consists of cannot be distinguished from each other, and therefore not organised into shapes, that added together in specific ways seem to establish a story of us as somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, oneness is formless.

In non-duality, everything is fused into one perpetual present, that no one can see, as it takes more than one to see something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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 making up that which is one, that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because they are not still. They move so fast that time stands still, so it is not possible to organise them in a linear way – or any other way for that matter.

In the context of our story about a world where there seems to be more than one versus that which is one, you could say, that a world where there seems to be more than one is a fantasy of what oneness looks like when slowed down. The more it is imagined to be slowed down, the more space there seems to be between the otherwise shapeless letters, wherefore they appear to be separated from each other and each has a definitive shape of their own.

Furthermore, there seems to be time to arrange the separated shapes in different combinations attributed with each their own meaning, so not only space but also time establishes separation as real and thus that which is one as unreal.

The slowing down of oneness is, therefore, an attempt to turn its formlessness into a construction of thoughts representing specific shapes that they seem to be something you can manipulate to your liking in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Thus the way back to oneness does not come from slowing down thoughts via meditation or something else that makes you appear to be in control of the thoughts making up your particular shape so you seem to be at  rest and untouched by the speed of the Earth that is hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour.

Neither does the way back 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.

No matter if 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.

To undo the belief 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. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A journey without distance takes no time
It is not a fact but make-believe that what and where you appear to be is real. It all falls apart if not attributing meaning to the letters in this article or anything else that seems to be part of your story, because 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 appearing to be there, is, of course, to bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is one (see hack #5-7.1 From the inner senses through a black hole into that which is one). It promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you remember to have experienced so there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled and thus nobody to experience a world where there seems to be more than one.

If you, however, want to have your cake and eat it too, you can connect with the empty breath (read more about that here), because it undoes the belief in being someone in a less abrupt way. Thus you are able to enjoy the excitement of it while in the process of having it undone.

The reason for this is that the empty breath does not erase the memories of you as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet due to its flow of indifference, the apparent difference between what is believed to be you and others is not perceived to make a difference.

Thus a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be confirmed to be real. But it is quite fun to pretend that it is (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive). Just like in the context of the apparent reality of a world where there seems to be more than one, it is fun pretending to be someone in the virtual world of a video game.

The source of life cannot create anything, as it is that which is one and it takes more than one to create something. For the same reason, it cannot be found. Fortunately, that is not necessary, because the oneness of life is formless and therefore endless, so there is no more than that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Nothing needs to be done when not perceived as something
The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing –for example vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming and computer to smartphones to wearables – and the speed of info in cyberspace is a reminder, that the reality is sizeless since it is that which is one, and it requires more than one to take up space. As it, therefore, cannot be found in a world defined by time and space, nothing in such a world can bring you back to it, except the undoing of the belief that you are there.

That is the purpose of the empty breath as well as the other duality hacks. It is not achieved, though, by revealing the formlessness of oneness, because it takes more than one to reveal something. Besides, it does not need to be revealed, as it is formless and therefore endless, so there is nothing else.

What needs to be revealed is what appears to hide this. It is your perception of a dream that makes it appear real and likewise it is your perception of what and where you appear to be when you believe to be awake that establishes it as real. If you, for example, perceives a specific noise to be irritating, you will probably start to imagine how to get rid of it and how much better everything will be when the noise is gone. Thus the belief in being someone definitive is enhanced.

This is what the empty breath corrects without you having to change your perception or anything else because the noise, as well as your perception of it, is perceived as nothing by the empty breath and when connected with it this perception rubs off on you. The belief in being someone is, therefore, not enhanced but undone at once. In a world of linear time, this may seem to take a long time before there is nobody to realise this.

No worries. Time is also perceived as nothing by the empty breath, so while nothing happens you can have fun perceiving it to be something. In other words, with the empty breath by your side, you do not need to stop or change anything, nor to force the body into uncomfortable positions, to have the belief in being someone undone and at the same time having fun being in love, irritated or whatnot.

APPENDIX:
Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media is stressing. But that only seems so, because they want to uphold a special image of themselves, and therefore need to sort it in categories of good and bad, so it ends up in a story that points to you and like-minded ones as the good ones and others the bad ones. But as this story is based on countless judgments and speculative concepts regarding right and wrong, thoughts keep flying around, which is what feels stressing and not the amount of info.

This speculative and restless state though is not a problem, that needs to be fixed. In fact, the faster the speed of thoughts and feelings seem to be, the faster the stress disappears. That is if you do not try to slow down the speed but use it to ignite a take-off to the empty breath. Read more about that here.

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.

PART 1:
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 an 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 to lose what you appear to be and have.

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.

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.

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 evolution of IoT (Internet of things) via smartphones and tablets makes it easier and easier to connect people and their needs, so you share cars and rent out your home as a holiday home, while you rent somebody else´s for your vacation.

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.

Streaming music and other doings of Generation Y (born between 1980 and 2000) suits the personality of Alexius well. It does not appear to be about having to own things but about having free access to them – like for example you have to my non-teachings and he has to the source delivering the content.

You can read more in an article from Wired about how the digital generation expects integrated service offerings in the way IoT (Internet of things) works and are happy to trade personal data for access to the sharing economy.

What you can access from the smartphone is not in the phone. Nothing in the smartphone is real. Everything is symbols.

What you can access from the smartphone is not in the phone. Nothing in the smartphone is real. It is all symbols of something.

PART 2:
The reason the capitalistic system is the way it is in the world is very simple. So far it has been very important for a person to own something and preferably a lot. The same applies to the communistic way of living, even though it is about owning things together – at least officially speaking.

But you cannot own the enlightenment of that which is one*, neither individually or as a group. No matter how much you hug, hold hands, meditate together and whatnot, if you want to own the experience of something the enlightenment of that which is one will not bid you welcome.

There is nothing higher than that which is you. Neither something lower, because you are that which is one and as it is formless it is endless, so there is no more than that which is one.

The above about everybody wanting to own very much is a generalisation, and there are of course exceptions to that, but not many – otherwise the world would not be based on owning as much as possible for as little as possible on the expense of others.

The older generation think, that to buy and own is to commit. What a conditioning to think consumerism of materialistic things or so-called spiritual states of mind is commitment!

The biggest exception from wanting to own things or experiences is found in generation Y (born 1980 – 2000), who generally speaking do not care to own but to have access – especially via a smartphone.

Things and services you can access via a smartphone, are not in the phone just like the enlightenment of that which is one is not in the body. That is why the generations up until now, that are conditioned to own things, thoughts, feelings and experiences, are very far away from the enlightenment of that which is one. You cannot own that which is one, as it takes more than one to own something.

The transporter from Star Trek.

There is nothing to own. The world is an illusion. This is what the enlightenment of that which is one dispels in a split second. Enlightenment in itself is not the goal though. The goal is to undo the belief in being someone definitive, so there is not something that appears to hide that which is one. Enlightenment can in some ways be compared to the transporter beam in Star Trek, where a person is dematerialized and converted into energy, that is beamed to a target, where the person again is materialised.

In enlightenment of that which is one, however, there is no target, and the person is not reconverted into matter. The thought it is constructed of is left at the edge of a black hole, so there is nobody to experience the formlessness of that which is one.

If you play a video game or watch a movie, you cannot own or change the characters there, because they – like every other appearance in a game or a movie – are constructed illusions made to appear in pre-made ways. You cannot be any of those appearances, but you can have access to anybody that you like and pretend to appear like that in a virtual world.

Likewise, you cannot be in the world, where there appear to be more than one because you are that which is one. But you can have access to such a world and pretend to be someone definitive there, which can be quite fun, as long as you remember it is about access and not owning.

The smartphone is a symbol of being connected and have access to everthing.

The smartphone is a symbol of being connected and having access to everything.

You have to own a smartphone or something similar to have access to the sharing economy and for example IoT. The smartphone is a symbol of having access and having access is a symbol of the oneness of life, because without that you would not have access to a world where there seems to be more than one.

Generation Y does not even care to own their thoughts, feelings and experiences. They share them all on the internet – and they happily give away all their private info in exchange for having access to the sharing economy, streaming music, movies and so on. If this seems natural to you, you are on the right track regarding the enlightenment of that which is 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 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.

When playing a game you are free to act in any way you feel like. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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
