When you realise hell you are in heaven [DRAFT]

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings cannot take something away from you because you never had anything, nor can they give you something as you are nothing. But since Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings also are nothing, the belief in being and having something is undone the more you read them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If negativity is not acknowledged for what it is, it cannot define positivity (read more that in Positive thinking is bullshit). So do not disassociate yourself from negative thoughts and emotions by projecting them onto others or removing them from your awareness by hiding them in vulnerable parts of your body.* Instead, confirm the thoughts and emotions you do not like in the same way you ratify, there is water in a well. You look at the surface but do not dive into it because you could drown doing so.

In other words, to not hide but acknowledge disturbing thoughts and feelings, you look at them superficially because going deep, you could get lost. Besides, a sense of negativity is enough to define positivity and thus to make you laugh and feel complete by the interplay of this polarity.

If you wonder how to set apart physical and psychological feelings, you can count on the former being boring, the latter exciting and the perceived combination of them very worrying.*

However, before laughing you may feel like going to hell because totally forgotten and unwanted feelings pop up. Perhaps it starts quietly with depression that you ling time ago combined with a physical feeling in the heart, but since the psychological part of this combination generally is depressed anger, sooner or later, like all suppressed emotions, it turns into brutal sensations of hellfire combined with the feeling of a vulnerable part of the body. Maybe it feels like short acid-like splashes or a ruthless and persistent pain.

Not escaping but acknowledging this torture, you realise, in a world of duality, there is no heaven without hell. And that contrary to the constant effort of avoiding things and emotions associated with hell, it feels relaxing to feel them and, therefore, not preventing hell from interacting with heaven. Especially because the interplay of this polarity reveals that they are two sides of the same coin, so both are needed to feel complete. Continuously feeling fulfilled, there is no sense of something missing. Consequently, the need for being and having more, eventually, fades out, and thus the belief that there is more than that which is one,

Should the descent into hell cause too much fear or frustration, you can take a break from duality. This you do by staying with the anxiety because if not withheld, it builds up energy until it ignites a take-off to the empty breath which brings you into a state of not-knowing and the bliss of nothing (read more about that in hack #5.2 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing). You can also cancel out contrasts and thus the experience of duality, so you are in a state of not-knowing (see hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is pure bliss).

In regard to the descent into hell, you may find the book Descent to the Goddess interesting, although it is not in line with the duality hacks and supposed to be for woman only.

In non-duality, there is no paradise, neither anything else because that requires more than one. Since this also is necessary for having a shape, non-duality is formless and therefore endless. Hence it is everything. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In other words, you take a break from duality by going into in a state of not-knowing in which there is nobody with a past or future but very likely glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one (read more about that here). If you do not want to permanently leave duality, you should only visit this state for shorter intervals of time (see the previous article).

That is also enough to have the slate wiped clean (see the previous article), so you return, from a state of not-knowing to a conscious experience of being someone with the perception that it is what it is. Read more about that here. Thus the interplay of heaven and hell, for example, is experienced without their difference perceived to make a difference.

This is not to say that non-duality is a fusion of heaven and hell or union of all contrasts. Non-duality is not something at all, as it requires more than one to be anything. Nevertheless, non-duality is formless and therefore endless, so it is everything.

Finally, in the context of duality, if your negative thoughts and emotions come from worrying about a physical problem, you better uncouple the immaterial and material reality,* so thoughts and emotions can be dealt with in an abstract way and the physical issue in a tangible way. In the case of Alexius, he often uses far-infrared heating pads from UTK technology for physical problems.

This parting is also necessary when having glimpses of enlightenment because if you worry about the body, you will not dare to sense that they expand your experience, so it is not limited by what you believed to be. Not in the sense that the body is connected with everything experienced but that if you look at the wall, the body and whatnot, is experienced to be the same. Read here about how to have glimpses of enlightenment.

What is freedom!?


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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