You feel stressed from perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference [draft]

It is only in a world where there seems to be more than one that you can search for the meaning of life. Nevertheless, it is not to be found there or anywhere else because it takes more than one to find something, and life is that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The way that letters are put together in various configurations makes it possible for us to attribute a special meaning to each shape. And when they are organised in rows divided by dots and commas, like in this article, they seem to make up a story written by somebody else than ourselves, thus confirming we are somebody in a world where there is more than one. But since the story that seems to prove this is pieced together of shapes attributed a meaning by you, the story is made by you. Thus it does not prove there is more than yourself.

Reality is that which is One, and since it takes more than one to experience something, everything experienced is unreal.

Let us imagine that the letters making up the shapes we believe in establishing a world where there is more than one are the same letters making up that which is One. Unlike in the world where we believe in being and where everything is experienced to be separated by time and space, there is no time and space to keep anything apart in oneness, as that requires more than one.

Hence the letters that oneness consists of cannot be distinguished from each other, thus not organised into shapes that, when added together in specific ways, seem to establish a story of us as somebody in a world where there is more than one. In other words, oneness is formless.

It is not only because there is no space to separate the letters making up that which is One, that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because they move so fast that time stands still (read more about that here). Hence, it is impossible to organise them linearly – or in any other way.

In the context of our story about a world where there seems to be more than one versus that which is One, you could say such a world is a fantasy of what oneness would look like if it could be slowed down. The more oneness is imagined slowed down, the more the space between the otherwise shapeless letters in that which is One seems to shape them, wherefore they appear to be separated from each other and have a definitive form of their own.

Read more about the fantasy of a slowed-down version of that which is One in A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a movie of that which is One played in slow motion.

Furthermore, there seems to be time to arrange the separated shapes in different combinations attributed to each their meaning, so space and time establish separation as real, thus the formlessness of oneness as unreal.

In other words, the slowing down of oneness is an attempt to turn formlessness into thoughts representing specific shapes you can manipulate to your liking in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Hence you do not get back to oneness by stopping the speed of thoughts via meditation or something else that makes you appear to be in control of the thoughts making up your particular shape, so you seem at rest and unmoved by the speed of the Earth, hurtling around the sun at 67.000 miles an hour. Read more about that here. Nor is the way back revealed by understanding this or anything else, as understanding something requires more than one, thus enhancing the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One.

Whether you experience something as inside or outside, it is an illusion because oneness is formless, thus without sides – and that which is you is no different from that which is one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

It is not a fact but make-believe that what you believe in being is real. It all falls apart if you do not attribute meaning to the letters in this article or something else that seems to be part of the story of what you are because when shapes make no sense, there is nothing to separate them and thus no time and space.

Since there is no more than oneness, nobody has ever left it. Consequently, going back takes no time.

The fastest way to not attribute meaning to something experienced is to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One (see hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One). It promptly and relentlessly erases every definable detail of whatever you have experienced. Therefore, since there are no memories from where an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled, there is nobody to experience something that seems to confirm being someone.

Should you prefer to have the belief in being someone undone over time, you can connect with the empty breath (read how here). It undoes this belief gradually, so you can enjoy the excitement of it while slowly but surely having it undone.

This is because the empty breath does not erase your memories of being someone. But since it resides in the nothingness from where the brain has made the experiences stored as your memories, it knows they are nothing. Thus your past does not establish what you believe to be as something when connected with the empty breath –  just like within the context of the world, you are not perceived as real when you act as if you are in the virtual world of a computer game (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive).

Of course, you could contemplate this yourself. But it would probably turn into a depressing discussion in you, instead of the bliss of nothing that the wordlessness of the empty breath invokes. So if you prefer getting a feeling of completeness, go with the duality flow. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

To undo the belief in separation, you must give up attributing meaning to anything, so your apparent different experiences do not appear to make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing – for example vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming, and computer to smartphones to wearables – is a reminder that reality is sizeless because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to take up space. For the same reason, oneness cannot be found in a world defined by time and space. Nothing, except the undoing of the belief that you are in such a world or any other kind of world, can bring you back to oneness,

That is the purpose of the empty breath and the other duality hacks. They do not achieve it by revealing the formlessness of oneness since it takes more than one to do so. Besides, oneness does not need to be disclosed. It is formless, thus endless, so there is nothing else.

What needs to be revealed is that you perceive the experiences the brain fabricates from nothing as something to hide the formlessness of oneness – just like you perceive the experience of you in a dream as real to hide you are not there but in your bed.

This perception is what the empty breath corrects without you having to leave the dream. So with the empty breath by your side, you do not need to stop or change anything to have the belief in being and having more than that which is One undone and, at the same time, have fun experiencing more than one.

Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media is stressful. But that is most likely because they want to uphold a particular image of the world and therefore need to sort the info into what is adaptable and not. Since this requires you to keep a distance from the nonadaptable, you must remember the thoughts making it up. But as you also need to remember the adaptable thoughts, there are many thoughts to keep track of. That is what makes it feel stressful, not the amount of info.

Fortunately, the more stressed you seem to get, the faster it disappears if you do not slow down its pace but use it to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. Read more about that here.
