Alexius died again from the world of the outward-facing senses

The total transmission from the outer to the inward-facing senses is not gradual but very abrupt, and it can seem frightening when you sense that nothing definable will make it through this transition. You and the world, as you know it, will be eradicated just like that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Just like we have the outward-facing senses to see, hear, feel, smell and taste a tangible world, we have inward-facing senses to see, hear, feel, smell and taste an abstract world. However, to use the inward-facing senses, the outward-facing ones must be more or less turned off. Here you can read more about the inward and outward-facing senses.

The more you do not focus on something in the world of the outward-facing senses, the more it is shut down and the less you see a definable world. To be entirely defocused for a moment feels like you die from the world of the outward-facing. And since most people believe being in this world is to be alive, they fight to remain there.

THE DEFLECTION OF FEAR
Psychologist says that when suppressed feelings are about to surface, some unconsciously choose to vomit instead of facing them. It is a bit the same in the total transition from the outward-facing senses to the inward ones. Part of you is afraid of the unknown and tries avoiding it by doing something very physical like vomiting.

However, it is best to avoid vomiting in the phase of the total transition from outer to inward-facing senses. And instead, face the extreme discomfort by including it precisely as it is without trying to understand or embrace it. Thus you are what is in the moment and nothing else. Then it is over. It might be easier said than done, and it probably takes a long time to pass the apparent discomfort.

When one of Alexius’ inward-facing senses opened at a very young age, the outer ones were fully turned off, so there was nothing to block out the Enlightenment of that which is One. Alexius had been driving a taxi for 15 hours and was exhausted to the extent that he confused traffic lights for customers trying to hire a cab.

When he finally returned home from work, there was no energy left to fight the third eye to open up and burn away everything established as Alexius, so that there was no belief in someone definitive to hide there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

DEEP, DEEP SLEEP
If either the inward or outward-facing senses are intensely used, the other seems to be in the background. For Alexius, it was the most known aspect of the inward-facing senses that dominated when they opened up, namely the ability to ‘see’ light. But not a light that can be compared to anything you can see with the two eyes of the outward-facing senses.

The Bhagavad Gita compares this light to light from thousands of suns, but Alexius would not do that. To compare it to something is to say there is something to see that can be defined by time and space. It is not a light that illuminates something. There is nothing to see – not even light because there is no consciousness of being someone.

Soon after, he had bid welcome the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One, the inward-facing ear opened with ethereal harmonies sounding like bells, much crisper and softer way than the mundane ones. Regarding the opening of the third eye, he had no discomfort in the transition. Perhaps he was too exhausted to fight it.

Speaking of the opening of the inward-facing ear, it probably ‘happened’ in deep sleep, where the concept of an ‘I’ is gone. Thus there is nobody to hold onto in a world where there seems to be more than one. In such a profound sleep, his inward-facing ear opened up.

The desire to escape that which is One makes you hang onto the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. That is until you realise, it is yourself that you want to escape, because that which is you is no different from that which is One.

TASTING THE SWEETNESS OF ONENESS
The sweetness of that which is One is like a flavour of milk and honey with a hint of liquorice or sometimes strawberry. To start tasting it was not without discomfort for Alexius. His body reacted like it had been attacked by something dangerous and panicked by making vomit reflexes. But when he did not try to escape it, the panic turned out to be a lid on a jug of a smoothie-like texture some scripture calls the nectar of life. Read more about the sweetness of oneness here.

Since the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced, the next step with this aspect cannot be explained. But metaphorically speaking, the transparent sweet smoothie-like flavour taste turns into the tastelessness of oneness when not defined as a  taste of something known. However, it was not before, after having had several glimpses of this aspect, that Alexius realised he must have bid welcome the taste of the Enlightenment of that which is One because memories start popping up of a shapeless taste.

When the biological system of the body does not function anymore, the world of the outward-facing senses cannot be experienced. But for almost half an hour you remain in the world of the inward-facing senses, and as it is only in the world of the outward-facing senses the belief in being someone specific can be upheld, nobody is dying.

That is if you do not fight the world of the inward-facing senses by holding onto something specific, that reminds you of being someone in the world of the outward-facing senses.

In that which is One, you are not anything at all, not even the bubbling sense of oneness. There is not someone to experience it because that requires more than one. This does not mean that you are gone because that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is One. What is gone is the belief in being someone tangible in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

FINALLY, ALEXIUS DIED FROM THE OUTWARD-FACING SENSE OF FEELING THE WORLD
The inward-facing sense of feeling was not easy to reach for Alexius. It took many years of discomfort, vomiting, being hospitalised and sometimes losing the ability to balance – to mention a few of the disturbing things he has encountered as a person getting into the world of the inward-facing sense.

Alexius can add that all memories of discomfort was gone, when he updated this article much later. So do not worry about going with the flow of the inward-facing senses.

But finally, one night, Alexius was in such deep sleep that he completely died from the outward-facing sense. In other words, the belief in being Alexius was momentarily undone so that the Enlightenment of that which is One was bid welcome – not in a visual but emotional way, though. First, there was a moment of discomfort from not sensing his body to be separated from the bed. Then, it was as if everything was like the body and everything else was electric and full of tiny bubbles.

Next, it turned into a feeling with no shape, thus not tangible. Consequently, not establishing Alexius as somebody, wherefore there was and nobody to remember it. In other words, what is written here is based on vague memories that Alexius seem to be able to pick up from what feels very far away and yet right here.

It was unlike in a world defined by time and space, where there seem to be different events happening in sequences of time. There was no time. Everything was happening simultaneously. It was one perpetual present of sparkling bubbles and still is, although returning to a world defined by time and space, it seems to be a sequence of events that is over a long time ago.

Until that night, Alexius only had glimpses of the emotional aspect of that which is One, which is to hear or feel experience the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises. If you want to learn how to have such glimpses, check out Life has no secrets.

How to activate other glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, you can read in the article, The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them.

To die from the outward-facing senses and return to them again can be compared to rebooting a computer. You come back with a blank slate. Here Alexius is rebooted in a hospital where they spoke a language foreign to him except for the language of their laughter. Since all his conditioning had been blown away, it was easy to play along and have fun in their world of the outward-facing senses. Besides he knew it was make-believe. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen

BACK IN A WORLD WHERE THERE SEEMS TO BE MORE THAN ONE
To leave the Enlightenment of that which is One and reappear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, all that is needed is to perceive something as it differs from something else, thus confirming separation. Alexius remembers that when he first time returned from the intense glimpse of the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolise, he was brought back by the wish to live as someone as opposed to becoming nobody. Since such a contrast – or any other for that matter – is only applicable in a world where there seems to be more than one, Alexius appeared to be there again.

To experience the Enlightenment of that which is One, there must be someone to experience it. However, that is impossible because it takes more than one to experience something. Thus Alexius’ Enlightened Non Teachings discerns between the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it.

The former cannot be experienced and the latter is an experience of Enlightenment comparable to watching a movie trailer, which means it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One but a sample of it.

We all know, the world presented to us in a set of virtual reality glasses is not real. Yet most have forgotten, that neither is the world presented to us by the senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

We all know that the world experienced in a set of virtual reality glasses is unreal. Yet that applies to everything experienced because it requires more than one to be aware of something, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

SINCE IT TAKES MORE THAN ONE TO EXPERIENCE SOMETHING, AND THERE IS NO MORE THAN THAT WHICH IS ONE, EXPERIENCES ARE UNREAL
We all know that within the framework of a world where there seems to be more than one, the world simulated in virtual reality glasses is not real and that when you take off the glasses, everything that appeared to be in the virtual world disappears, so that is not something to disturb you from seeing what is considered the real world.

Likewise, the more the outward-facing senses are turned off, the less definable appearances prevent you from being in the abstract world of the inward-facing senses with glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

But the experience of this world full of lucid light, ethereal music, sweet nectar or transparent bubbles disappears if the outward-facing senses are entirely turned off, as that leaves nothing to define those glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. Hence there are no glimpses to experience, nor somebody specific to experience them, and thus not something to hide there is nothing but one perpetual present.

Please do not take the expression in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings about the inward and outward-facing senses too literal. The world of the inward-facing senses refers to a world that is not experienced as outside of you, whereas the world of the outward-facing senses are experienced outside of you. However, all experiences are make-believe.

From the perspective of a world where oneness is divided into more than one, that which is One is nothing. But from the standpoint of oneness – though no such thing is possible, as it requires more than one to have a point of view – it is everything because it is formless, thus endless.
