Inclusiveness is a journey without distance

Those gathering in groups of nationalism, capitalism, socialism or another ism manifests their specific group by excluding everything, not in line with its principles.

First, they divide the world into right and wrong. Second, they eliminate everything judged wrong by projecting it onto other groups. Third, therefore, since the other groups seem evil, they start to fight them.

When the fight is over, the winning group claims to be the good one. »By doing the right thing, we have established we are the best,« they say. But they only seem to be better because they have projected the worst in themselves onto the losing groups.

Fortunately, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not a new doctrine where you have to change or get rid of something to become better. That confirms separation, and Alexius’ Duality Hacks undo the belief that there is more than that which is One

When Henry Ford invented a faster vehicle than a horse-driving carriage, it was not just an update of the old type of transportation. Instead, he surpassed it and developed a new and much faster vehicle.

Likewise, Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not an update of ancient meditation methods, added soothing sounds, shaman sticks and whatnot. Alexius’ Duality Hacks are built from scratch, founded on the haste of modern-day life, so you rapidly enter a state of not knowing and its bliss of nothing. On the other hand, meditation progresses at the pace of a horse-driving carriage because it is based on excluding something to become whole, which is a contradiction. Thus there is no progress. Besides, life is all-inclusive, so exclusion is a denial of it.

But hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is freedom is based on inclusiveness. It does not require sitting in a specific position with eyes closed or being with special people in unique surroundings. Instead, you include whatever you experience wherever you are. You cannot go wrong, not even if you forget to be inclusive, because then you include your imperfection. Hence you are at full speed on a journey with no distance to that which is all-inclusive, namely non-duality, since it is formless, thus endless.

Being Inclusive starts by acknowledging separation – otherwise, there is nothing to include. For example, to experience something as specifically good, you must separate it from its opposite, bad – just like you exclude the white background that contrasts these black letters from your awareness to focus on reading the article.

Next, you include what you excluded. In the context of reading this article, you fully bring back the white background into your awareness. That makes it impossible to focus on the black letters, wherefore there is no article to read. In other words, by including the excluded, the two sides of a polarity cancel out each other. Therefore, since there is nothing specific to experience, thus nothing to make the experiencer definitive, the belief in separation falls apart.

You do not have to be aware of both sides in the polarities to include them. Instead, you include the part you are conscious about. That automatically incorporates its counterpart because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, like two sides of a coin. See also Inclusiveness is emptiness – and that is pure bliss.

In other words, when one side of a coin is included, there is nothing to define the other side. Hence the sides do not appear separated but partners in a coin experience. Regarding feelings, if you include pain, for example, it is revealed to be in an alliance with its counterpart relief. Hence your problem contains the solution.

Another way to put it, nothing can be experienced without its contrast. Therefore, if you devote yourself so much to a problem that there is nothing but that, there is not something to define it. Consequently, there is no problem causing suffering.

However, that is not the way to realise non-duality. It cannot be known because it takes more than one to become aware of something. But it is the way to see that there is no more than that which is One. You realise that when you are fully inclusive. But you probably start little by little. No worries. As already said, inclusiveness is a journey without distance.

Inclusiveness is a bit like falling in love. Everybody looks lovely.

Although Alexius’ cat, Uma, is dead, their love affair continues because Alexius has included his experience of it. However, physically speaking, it is over because Uma has returned to the nothingness from where she seemed to arise. Therefore, since they are together in the bliss of nothing, Alexius and Uma walk the path without time and space into that which is One, accompanied by soundless meowing. Of course, Alexius and Uma are alone together, including everyone that appears as someone, because there is no separation in nothing. Read about that in hack #7.1 Alone together, we go home.

Alexius had a cat, Uma, that died in his arms when she was only eight months old. He felt they had been so close in her short life that for a long time, he woke up crying in the morning. He tried to find relief in the memories of their time together, but when the images of Uma started to fade, he realised he was on the wrong track.

In Alexius’ memories, Uma was definable, but she was not definable anymore. So instead of hanging onto the memories of specific images, he included them. Therefore, since they became boundless, the feeling of Uma was in everything. Hence there was no loss to mourn.

Sometimes, though, he forgot that. But grieving only resulted in fleeting memories, so he returned to the stable feeling of Uma in everything. He got there by not blocking the breath from going through the muscles involved in crying. Therefore, since the muscles softened instead of cramping up and making him cry,* they did not preserve his previous relation to Uma as someone specific.

However, when Uma is everywhere, she is also in Alexius’ memories. Thus he can enjoy the memories of his physical moments with Uma like the ongoing non-physical ones accompanying his present experiences, making them all as intense as his ongoing adventure with Uma.

That does not mean Alexius does not cry anymore, nor that he and Uma are at one. On the contrary, she is the devotion in his life. But what that means, Alexius does not know. However, that is good because it takes more than one to know something. Thus they are going nowhere in the formlessness of oneness.

There is more about Alexius and Uma in You undo the belief in duality by enjoying it. In hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues, you can read more about upholding a specific perception by holding back your breath.

*) This is not meant to say, crying is wrong. But sometimes, it is better not to follow the flow of muscles leading to crying and instead fall into the flexibility of the muscles, thus feeling relaxed.
