Far from Home

Updated November 23, 2022

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 for part of the year. Everything there differs from his life in his native country, where he definitely would have to wear a warm sweater on an evening this time of the year. However, it would be plain stupid to do that on an evening like in the picture. This illustrates that when you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you forget about oneness, so you can play the game of more than one. One way to do that is to pretend to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE IS ENTERTAINING:
Alexius’ native country is Denmark, but nowadays, he also spends time on a Spanish island close to Africa. So when he is there, he has to forget about the minimalistic ways of Denmark and instead convert to the more maximalistic way of Spain. He also has to adapt to a new language, change to a new currency and many other things. Even though he seems to be good at it and having fun doing it, deep inside, he is still Danish and feels like he is far from home when spending time on the Spanish island.

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

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

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

Besides, you do not need to return home. You have never left it. That is impossible because oneness is formless, thus 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 you need to undo.

Metaphorically, it is as if you, from oneness, stream a fictional video of more than one in which you pretend to be someone that is felt real due to artificial sensors. See, A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a movie of oneness played in slow motion.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not fulfil your dreams. On the contrary. All dreams must be called. 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 repeatedly until you are pleased with what you pretend to be. Then, you forget all about streaming and that there ever was a video. And there never was because the video and the world of duality it seems to reflect is make-believe.

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

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

To conclude: As long as you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, give it your best shot. If you skip doing something, you may want to keep playing the game until you get it right. It is over when everything seems enjoyable in a world where there seems to be more than one when everything is enjoyable.

You cannot prove a world where there seems to be more than one is unreal because nothing unreal can be by that which is real, namely that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

In Spain – like in any other country – you spend a long time learning the rules of interacting, so that you can pretend to be a person there and therefore be acknowledge to be real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE IS FREEDOM:
It takes time to learn to pretend to be a specific person. For example, when Alexius was a child, he spent years learning 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 when spends time there.

Thus Alexius is learning how to pretend to be a person who speaks loud, shouts at waiters, enjoys having breakfast in a bar around 11 AM, thinks 8 PM is too early for dinner and does not say ‘thank you.’ He is also learning to pretend to be someone who greets a woman by kissing her on both cheeks. Besides, he tries to learn not to be politically correct but says nigger and mixes things in non-established ways.

These things seem to define a Spanish person in the public room – at least as seen from the perspective of someone formerly conditioned to only be Danish.

Suffice to say, every country defines how to be someone in their part of the world. And if you want to be acknowledged as somebody there, you must pretend to be someone who lives by the local rules.

This also applies to smaller groups of people – even a love relationship, 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 impossible 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 not different from that which is One. However, imagining to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, it it seems possible to feel happy and sad.

Fortunately, the apparent difference between these or any other contrasting feelings does not make a difference, when tyou pretend to feel them. Thus they do not appear to to establish a world where there seems to be more than one as real.

Pretending to be someone definitive instead of believing it does not mean everything will work out how you expect. But it means that when something does not work out as planned and a feeling of sadness pops by, it feels OK 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 aware of something.
