‘The duality flow’ frees you from the imprisonment of being definitive

Updated January 11, 2023

The opposing elements in the duality pairs you encounter are equally valued in the duality flow. Therefore, it is probably the closest you get to being singular in a world of duality. Maybe that is why the more you are in the duality flow, the more you forget to believe there is more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you stand by your reaction to this article, the definitive meaning you have decided your response can be perceived as ‘it is what it is.’ That reveals your opinion is not singular but twofold, wherefore you feel together.

At first, being in the duality flow feels like vertigo. With constant movement between opposites, there is nothing definitive to help you navigate the world. But there never was. It was something you made up to feel in control. Not doing that, you enjoy the duality flow.

Getting to the duality flow may be difficult for those who consider themselves spiritual. That is because they often hide their feelings to appear detached. But if you are not in touch with your emotions, they cannot be perceived as ‘it is what it is.’ Hence they remain as specific feelings in the dark, and you are in a numbed state some consider detachment.

In the constant interaction of opposites, making up the duality flow, it is equally entertaining to be somebody as nobody.

In most cases, therapy replaces one specific attitude with another, thus working against the duality flow.

If you perceive your reaction to everything as ‘it is what it is,’ there is no need to fence off seeing yourself as a monster by accusing others of evil because this perception uncovers that the beast in you contains an angel. Besides, the interaction of these opposites, and all others, reveals the duality flow. Going with that, you feel complete. Hence you do not need to denigrate others to feel better about yourself.

By suppressing the feelings you dislike, you also conceal those you like because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality. Therefore, since you always feel oppressed, you are not in touch with the present moment. So you try to compensate for that by preparing yourself for the next moment. But it never comes as you expect. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You feel frustrated until you stop looking for a specific appearance to make you feel good and go with the constant interaction of opposing elements. You neither stop nor start in this interplay. And you do not remain with a particular pair of opposites but in the movement between opposing elements. When you begin to follow the duality flow, sooner or later, duality is bound to stop because every beginning has an end in the world of duality.

Just before you pick up the duality flow in the interaction of opposing elements, there is a moment of nothing, thus not something that seems to hide non-duality. At this moment, you might hear the sound that seems to have set off the world of duality. Aum or Sohang often symbolises it in Eastern religion and The Word of God in Western religion. Read here how to hear it.

However, this vibration is not non-duality because it takes more than one to hear something. But when no one hears it as something specific, it wipes out duality.

Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings logically concludes that since it takes more than one to have a shape, oneness is formless, thus endless. Consequently, there is no more than that which is One. But since it takes more than one to read this, you believe it is possible to be and have more than one.

No worries, continuing as if you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you honour your choice to believe it is possible to be and have more than one. Hence you are in a position to undo it. Suppose you do that by bidding welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. In that case, the undoing does not occur gradually but immediately without warning (see hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One).

But since the temporal length of an event is an illusion, you may take your time and begin following the duality flow so you can enjoy appearing to be and have more than one until this experience, like anything else that has a beginning and end, finishes without any effort of yours.

What you need, you see without searching for it when you go with the duality flow. If you miss it, you are not afraid of getting upset because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality. Thus the duality flow continues. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Unconsciously you are always in the duality flow because no matter where you look, your eyes do not settle before they have found the highest contrast. Just look at the images in this article to see that your eyes do not seek balance but the topmost contrast.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a world of duality, everything comes in pairs of opposites that interact with each other. Therefore, since nothing is definitive, you only appear empathic if you construct an image of yourself where its counterpart, hatred, has been left out. But without it, there is nothing to define empathy, so your empathic appearance is a show.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you know any singular opinion or feeling is illogical in a world of duality, it is not essential to label the opposing elements in the duality pairs you encounter. So when you judge something as dangerous and see it is complemented with harmless, you do not dwell upon those opposing perspectives but the interaction between them – just like it is neither up nor down, but the interaction between those opposites, that is like the thrill of playing yoyo.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the duality flow, you do not feel something specific. That is why it goes to non-duality. In other words, when not looking for something, you are in the duality flow on the way to non-duality. Of course, this does not mean that you experience everything becomes one. But that, eventually, everything you experience is gone. Actually, it never was there because it takes more than one to be aware of something. The same applies to what you believe in being.

If the psychological feelings projected onto the body are not unveiled before dying, you will panic because there is nothing physical to conceal them. The same applies to entering the Enlightenment of that which is One.

The duality flow cannot be used for anything. Fortunately, there is no desire to do so when you join it because it makes you feel complete. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When you are in the duality flow, light feelings complement dark ones. Read more about that here. Thus there is light in the darkness and vice versa. If you have not realised that, you will fear falling through a black hole into that which is One. Read about the fear of Enlightenment here.

Before Alexius started following the duality flow, he was mostly into connecting with the empty breath and having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. He still is because he likes the time out of duality that this entails. But in between, he enjoys the duality flow. It is like a stroll towards non-duality where duality is undone while having a good time.

You suppress your reaction to the world to prevent seeing that you are not restricted by it but by your totalitarian ideas, so your complaints about the world are misplaced.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being fed up with living in the totalitarian environment your singular opinions have created, you say, »I prefer the duality flow.« Then you see, it is already in the interaction of breathing in and out. That does not mean you must remember the breath to be aligned with the duality flow. Just like breathing happens by itself when you do not interfere, the duality flow occurs automatically if you do not restrict yourself by hanging onto singular points of view.

Going with the constant interaction of opposites, you have no singular opinions anymore. Thus you do not feel constrained but flexible, which is vitalising. In other words, since you never are stuck with a distinct feeling, you neither feel happy nor sad but enjoy their constant interaction. This does not manifest materially in something specific, but you feel complete regardless of what you get.

When you feel uneasy in the body, you can be sure you have projected a psychological issue upon it. That could be to get rid of the psychological problem, but it could also be to make it appear substantial and thus make the experience of yourself more exciting. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The more trouble, the more delight. If this is not so for you, you avoid trouble and, therefore, delight because they are paired. But not fending off trouble, you can perceive it as ‘it is what it is.’ Hence it opens up, delight comes out, and after reveals, it has trouble inside. And so it goes until another interaction of opposites takes over or until you, by reflex, reject a feeling considered wrong. In that case, you soon feel trouble shows up again. But this time, you welcome it because you know it contains delight.

You enter the duality flow by perceiving your emotions as twofold. However, most are pretty removed from their feelings, except those they blame others for having made, and therefore, do not consider their own. Nevertheless, everyone seems to be in touch with their grievances. So if you have judged someone as stupid, you can perceive your condemnation as ‘it is what it is,’ thus having it revealed complemented with approval.

This twofoldness makes you laugh, and since laughter is complemented by crying, you are in the duality flow. Hence there is no need to be free from anything. On the contrary, you feel to everything.

To uphold the experience of duality, the brain needs constant communication between at least two entities perceived as different. Going with the duality flow, there is always two in play, so you meet this requirement. Hence you do not have to engage in an ongoing inner dialogue to please the brain. That is such a relief.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Before the duality flow, you probably had a special mood you could recreate via specific appearances, thus feeling happy. However, in the duality flow, happiness does not come from something specific but from being in the constant interaction of opposites. Hence you do not need something in particular to feel happy.

The duality flow is like taking a ride on a rollercoaster. You get the polarity of going up and down, but it happens so fast that the fear of going down and the thrill of going up are immediately forgotten.

So, in the context of this metaphor, the belief in a world of duality is not undone by being detached from the ride but by stepping it up and taking the entire tour with eyes wide open, not holding back. Therefore, you may seem to boil over with hate when it goes down. But when you go up again, you meet hate’s buddy, namely love. And as you do not hold back hatred when you go down, you get so much love going up that, sooner or later, there is no need for more, wherefore there does appear to be more to hide non-duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you enter a roller coaster, you cannot leave before the ride ends. Likewise, you cannot escape duality. So why not enjoy it with the duality flow, thus having an amazing trip till the end of duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since oneness is formless, thus endless, there is no more than that which is One. And since it takes more than one to be aware of something, it is impossible to experience oneness. Actually, it is impossible to experience anything. So if you do that, you hallucinate. No worries, your fantasy about more than one is fun when your response to it is twofold.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you split up the pairs of duality into disconnected elements, you get depressed. But if you go with the constant interaction of opposites, you feel good in a world of duality. It is like playing a game. You must follow the rules to feel entertained.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The brain generates ongoing internal communication with conflicting opinions to uphold its fantasy of duality. But that is very disturbing if you believe in being unique. Therefore, some try to silence the inner dialogue via meditation. Others keep themselves so busy that they seem to be above it or talk so much that the internal conversation is drowned out.

But they fool themselves. It takes two to meditate, be busy or talk to others, so they are not singular but dual. However, hiding that from their awareness, they do not get the togetherness of twofoldness. Fortunately, you get that in the duality flow. And since you are in the constant interaction of opposites, the brain does not need you to have ongoing internal communication with conflicting opinions, so your head is peaceful.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Non-duality is that which is One, which is formless, thus endless, so there is no more than that. Nevertheless, you may believe a distorted version of non-duality, where there seems to be more than One, is real. If you want to undo that belief, you start by acknowledging it, which you do by going with the duality flow. Since it is so amazing that you feel blown out, eventually, there is nobody to believe in more than One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since dualism is a fantasy, a world of duality is not physical but mental. That is why being someone in a material world is a mental experience. Since the duality flow does not focus on specifics, joining the flow, you eventually see duality is a fantasy made by the brain. And since a story has a beginning and end, you have fun going to the end of duality when you are in the duality flow.

In this hack, we have looked at a common way to eliminate emotions judged wrong by dumping them in the body. But emotions deemed suitable are also dropped in the body. In this case, the body is not used to hide them but make them appear more substantial and lasting. Read more about that in You must play the game of duality to hack it.

However, as endlessly repeated in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, non-duality is formless, thus endless, so duality is a fantasy the brain likes to spin to entertain you with the experiences of twofoldness. Since non-duality is timeless, it takes no time to live out this fantasy.
