CANCELLEX Not trying to know what and where you are, thoughts lose their meaning

Updated June 3, 2022

To avoid being influenced by thoughts, no particular posture or surroundings are needed. All that is required is not to be concerned about the outcome of anything at all so that the apparent difference between attaining something or not makes no difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Suppose you do not believe thoughts are real. In that case, it is easy to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One because all that is needed to bid it welcome is not to be attentive to the apparent meaning of thoughts. This is not the same as stopping them. Doing something enhances the belief in being someone definitive – and being that requires lots of thoughts with a specific meaning.

Neither should it be understood as you become aware of the Enlightenment of that which is One instead of thoughts. It is impossible to be conscious of the Enlightenment of that which is One, as it takes more than one to be aware of something.

Nobody will know if you have bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One because knowing that requires more than one, thus excluding the Enlightenment of that which is One.

For the same reason, you are not in the Enlightenment of that which is One anymore if you return to a world where there seems to be more than one. Yet, there are vague memories of it, so you are to be compared to someone who is the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, the person you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one has not changed. Neither is it necessary because that person is an illusion, thus any transformation of it.

If someone only partially bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, one will just have glimpses of it. Maybe spaced-out visions of travelling through different universes, seeing Jesus or the birth of a new universe in slow motion, which is very exciting, of course. Still, it is something experienced, so it has nothing to do with the Enlightenment of that which is One. Neither if you hear, feel nor taste it.

The swing of the empty breath feels as the curved line in an yin yang sign swinging back and forth, up and down, from side to side and everything in between within a ball without definitive borders, that crosses your body below or above the waist and in the head or above it. This vibration synchronizes the low-frequency world of the outer senses with the high frequency of the inner senses, so no kind of speediness or confusion in the world of the outer senses seems upsetting. When experiences in the world of the outer senses is based on the world of the inner senses nothing is interpreted as upsetting. It is rather the other way around, you cannot help but laugh.

The swing of the empty breath feels as if the curved line in a yin-yang sign is swinging forth and back, up and down, from side to side, and everywhere in between within a ball that has no definitive centre or border and that crosses your lower and upper body. This swing synchronises the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses with the high frequency of the inward-facing senses, so no kind of speediness or confusion in the world of the outward-facing senses seems upsetting. In other words, when the experiences in the world of the outward-facing senses are based on the world of the inward-facing senses, it does not matter if something appears to be upsetting or not. You are indifferent to appearances – including your own – and cannot help but smile. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

BEING A MEDIUM FOR THE EMPTY BREATH, YOU ARE GUIDED BY GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT
The main reason for feeling stressed as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is that it takes so much energy to make thoughts and feelings appear as if they come from someone specific.

Not being someone specific feels as if you are nothing, which seems pretty discomforting until you realise that being empty, you are a vessel, the empty breath*, that takes you into the high-frequency world of the inward-facing senses, where glimpses of Enlightenment are the base for experiencing the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses. More about how to have stress igniting a take-off into the empty breath in hack #5.1

The excitements in the world of the outward-facing senses requires you to appear, as if you are someone definitive, because you cannot have a specific experience without being someone definitive.

Being guided by the empty breath is like being on autopilot. It is so relaxing, and it feels as if nothing is wrong no matter what you appear to be and have unless you do not still insist on being entertained by all the apparent exciting possibilities in the world of the outward-facing senses, as they only bring pleasure if you work hard to appear as someone specific with its own thoughts and feelings.

This is very stressful compared to being a medium for the empty breath. It automatically syncs the stress from the world of outward-facing senses with the tranquillity of the inward-facing senses so that you become indifferent to the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one.

You are lucky, when everything seems to fall apart, because this may trigger so much sadness, that you stop believing the construction of thoughts you have based your identity upon is that which is you.

This synchronisation occurs when the high frequencies coming from the inward-facing senses are not fenced off by the belief that thoughts belong to someone definitive, and no effort is made to be active in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses.

This does not mean that you cannot move around in the world of the outward-facing senses. On the contrary, you are inactive in it and ready to be a medium for the empty breath when you do not care about what and where you are, while you, for example, appear to be walking down a street or sitting in a park. In other words, no need to exclude anything by eating exceptional food or sitting in particular postures in unique surroundings to become pure.

The empty breath is the foundation for glimpses of Enlightenment, that is bound to merge into the Enlightenment of that which is One, provided you do not keep swimming in the bliss induced by the glimpses of Enlightenment, as to be blissful requires more than one.

Just like the empty breath is a foundation for the glimpses of Enlightenment so is ‘pretending to be someone definitive’ or ‘to se symbols of life in the world’ or ‘not being exclusive but inclusive’ so that apparent differences is not perceived to make a difference.* It does not matter which foundation you choose or if you alternate between them.

A perfect moment with glimpses of enlightenment is something you are aware of. If you stop being aware of it, you cannot see any glimpse. There is nothing and that is where the enlightenment of that which is one sets in. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Glimpses of Enlightenment are something you are aware of. If you stop being aware of them or anything else, there is nothing to block out the Enlightenment of that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

WHERE DO GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT COME FROM
Physically speaking, the glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One seems to originate from a non-defined space behind the frequencies of thoughts behind the pineal gland. It is probably also from there that you perceive the world when you are not exclusive but inclusive, so its apparent differences do not make a difference, and it feels like every moment is the perfect moment*.

The same applies to pretending to be a person or to perceive everything in the world as symbols of that which is One*. The empty breath – sounding like sohang – is presumably picked up from there as well, physically speaking.

The pineal gland might work as a receiver for signals picked up by the eighth chakra, which has a magenta colour and is located above the head. Yet maybe the pineal gland or the eighth chakra has anything to do with the experiences of glimpses of Enlightenment. You cannot know because when in the experience, you do not care – and afterwards, you do not know where to look.

It might be best to downplay the visual glimpses of Enlightenment in daily life, as you will have a hard time navigating the world of the outward-facing senses while having visions of light. In most cases, though, you can safely go with the glimpses of the other aspects of Enlightenment, namely hearing, feeling or tasting it.

This is not a new religion or philosophy, that you must learn and strictly adhere to. On the contrary. It is about unlearning everything and going with the flow.

What is coffee. The answer will depend on the preferences of the one answering it and as we all have different preferences the same cup of coffee can be described in many different ways. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

What is coffee? The answer depends on the preferences of the one answering it and the interpretation of the answer by the one getting it, so the same cup of coffee may turn out to be many different things. In other words, you will not get to know what coffee is from reading about it but from drinking it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

NOT KNOWING WHAT AND WHERE YOU ARE, THERE IS NO MORE TO UNLEARN
The Enlightenment of that which is One and the glimpses of it are in Alexius’ Duality Hacks described in a certain way. Still, elsewhere the same is may be described in another way – just like two persons may describe the same cup of coffee in different ways.

So do not wait for the Enlightenment of that which is One or the glimpses of it to be revealed precisely as described in Alexius’ Duality Hacks. In other words, you do not have to fit into the terminology of Alexius’ Duality Hacks. Also: trying to extract a specific way to the Enlightenment of that which is One, or the glimpses of it from Alexius’ Duality Hacks, will not help you. It is better to forget all words about it and thrust the light, sound, feeling, or taste of it to do their thing when you partly or wholly are willing not to be someone definitive.

That being said, there are practical instructions on how to experience glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One in the article The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them, which may help to undo the belief in being someone definitive and therefore be able to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

When there is nobody there, there is nobody to judge a dog to be different from a human. No appearance appears to do behave in a personal way, because nobody is observing them.

THERE IS NOTHING TO FEAR WHEN THERE IS NOBODY THERE
When none of your experiences is excluded but included, you cannot know what and where you are because with nothing excluded, there are no contrasts to define you as someone specific.

Inclusion seems dangerous when you want to survive as someone definitive, but if you do not mind being NObody, there is no need to fear what seems to be the disintegration of you because there is no end to not being specific.


*) The other foundations for having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One apart from the empty breath can be read about in duality hack #1-3 plus #7. Hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation has a psychological perspective. In hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of life, the perspective is more metaphysical. And in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is freedom, indifference is the subject. Hack #7 Alone together we go home. is about togetherness combined with aloneness.

GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT TURN YOU INTO SOMEONE WHO APPEARS TO BE IN THE WORLD OF THE OUTWARD-FACING SENSES BUT NOT OF IT
As already said, a world where there seems to be more than one and the Enlightenment of that which is One excludes each other. However, you can have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One while doing something in a world where there seems to be more than one. If you do, you may seem distant from the world. Yet you are more present than most because to be present, you cannot be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Chances are, however, that you quickly will look for more glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One and as you, therefore, are participating in the quest for being and having more, you will be fixated on you in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, you are not present at all because that which is you is the formlessness of oneness, and as formless is endless, there is no more than that which is One.

The way to undo your belief in thoughts, as if they are yours and therefore making you appear to be someone special, is to include all of them exactly as they appear to be.

 

Living in the now has nothing to do with living. It is a numb state of mind for those trying to fit into a still photo imagined as life, as they are afraid of going with the flow of it.

 

Therefore a person must step aside to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One so that there is not something definable to hide it. To not be exclusive but inclusive is to step aside because then you become non-definable. 

Yet returning to a world where there seems to be more than one, there are vague memories of such a world being destroyed by a light stronger than 1000s of sun and leaving nothing but that which is One, as Arjuna describes it in the Bhagavad Gita.

Remembering there is no more than that which is One is not gonna change you into someone, who is wiser, better or more happy, but into nobody, as the conclusion is that a world where there seems to be more than one is not there.

 

You are nobody in the Enlightenment of that which is One. Well, also in the world, but in the Enlightenment of that which is One there is not something to fill the nothingness of you with thoughts of more than one, and so there is nobody to experience the enlightenment of that which is One.
