‘The Enlightenment of that which is One’ and glimpses of it

Updated June 20, 2022

There are specific steps to follow when you want something in a world where there seems to be more than one. But there are no steps to follow to undo the belief that you are in such a world. On the contrary, believing there is, enhances the belief that you are real, and so it will continue to hide what is real, namely the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PART 1:
In the world of the inward-facing
senses, the Enlightenment of that which is One or glimpses of it is available for you regardless of the state of your body, how and where it is positioned and if you know anything about Enlightenment. It is merely a matter of not focusing on being someone definitive. The less focus on that, the less the substantial world of the outward-facing senses blocks the abstractness of the inward-facing senses.

Hence glimpses of Enlightenment can be experienced as visions of light, ethereal harmonies, a shivering feeling of total emptiness or a taste of sweetness. But to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, you must completely forget the outward-facing senses.

However, like a movie trailer is not the movie, the glimpses of Enlightenment are not the Enlightenment of that which is One. But unlike a movie trailer which does not contain the whole film, glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One has it. Therefore, when you stop distinguishing the glimpses, they are no longer different experiences but the Enlightenment of that which is One.

There is no transition from glimpses of Enlightenment to the Enlightenment of that which is One because either there is separation or not. But since there is no time in the Enlightenment of that which is One, you are unaware that you used to believe in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Nevertheless, you are aware that the Enlightenment of that which is One will terminate your consciousness, abruptly and ultimately, because you sense the nothingness of you endlessly falling into that which is One. But since you are scared of the unknown and it requires more than one to be afraid of something, you immediately return to a world where there seems to be more than one.*

This is like dreaming about going to the moon and suddenly waking up in your bed. There is no conscious transition, and you are not an astronaut who has been to the moon. You are what you were before dreaming about it. Likewise, you are not aware of any transition to a world where there seems to be more than one when you return from the Enlightenment of that which is One. You are not enlightened. Nothing has changed, except you are aware everything experienced is fake because you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, thus not what you are experienced to be.

The Enlightenment of that which is One is not a state because being in a state requires more than one. But a glimpse of it is a state and thus not lasting since everything definable has a beginning and end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Nobody can attest to this because it requires more than one. For the same reason, you only have vague memories of leaving your personality behind and as nothing floating into the formlessness of oneness. They pop up every time you have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

As it takes more than one to be aware of something, it is impossible to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One while being conscious of something.

Unlike the Enlightenment of that which is One, its glimpses do not wipe out thoughts. But someone compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One does not notice them because there is no need to use them for a spiritual image of yourself or a better world. However, when the glimpses are far away, the bliss of nothing is replaced by the darkness of something.

This many solve by using the light in themselves to suppress the darkness, so they appear to light up a world of darkness. But that is not the Enlightenment of that which is One. It does not light up anything because it takes more than one to do so, and there is no more than one in the Enlightenment of that which is One.

Hanging onto a phoney image of yourself, you will not have more glimpses of Enlightenment until you do not want to use the glimpses but be used by them. Hence they, eventually, erase all wishes to improve a world where there seems to be more than one so that nobody is bidding welcome the Enlightenment of that which is On.

It takes more than one to do something and there is no more than oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Hence you cannot leave it. However, since reading this requires more than one, you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Thus going back to oneness is about undoing that belief.

People have extraordinary ideas about Enlightenment. Some think it is pure love, consciousness or the ability to see through all illusions. But seeing or being something requires more than one. Thus the Enlightenment they are dreaming about is not the Enlightenment of that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PART 2:
Often those who talk about Enlightenment give the impression that they know what it is. And since their explanations are very convincing, seen in the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, you probably dismiss the Enlightenment of that which is One if it hits you. It is not as described. Since it is formless, it is not an experience you go through.

Therefore, if somebody refers to experiences of Enlightenment, it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One but glimpses of it which can be experienced via the inward-facing senses.

If you tend to sense the world of the outward-facing senses in an auditory way, the inward-facing senses may not reveal visual glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One but auditory ones. In other words, instead of glimpses of light, you get samples of ethereal harmonies. Like the outward-facing senses see, hear, feel and taste a world that appears to be outside of you, the inward-facing senses do the same inside you.

In short, when the outward-facing senses are partly closed, you experience glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One via the inward-facing senses in the same way you see, hear, feel and taste something with the outward-facing senses. But if the latter is fully turned off, the Enlightenment of that which is One is bid welcome. However, as already said, this is not an experience since it takes more than one to be aware of something. See hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One.

If you think a sign pointing towards Berlin Airport has anything to do with the airport except from pointing towards it, you are mistaken. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

APPENDIX
A traffic sign pointing towards, for example, Berlin Airport has nothing to do with Berlin or the airport, even though there maybe is an illustration of an aeroplane on the sign. Besides, it cannot take you to Berlin Airport. All it can do is show the way.

Likewise, you cannot find the formlessness of oneness in Alexius’ Duality Hacks. They do not even point towards it, but to the belief in being someone definitive, so you can see it hides the formlessness of oneness. Yet there is no specific sequence you must follow to undo this belief and welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. That would be the foundation for replacing the old belief with a new one. Alexius did not know anything about the Enlightenment of that which is One when he bid it welcome. He did not even know that he bid it welcome.


*) Had you regularly applied one or more of the Duality Hacks #1-5, the Enlightenment of that which is One (hack #6.1) would not scare you because you would not believe to be someone definitive, thus not having something to lose. Read more about the fear of oneness in The fear of Enlightenment. And check out how to call off specific emotions such as fear in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality so that bidding welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One is not frightening.
