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

Updated November 2, 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 a world where there seems to be more than one is real. Thus it continues to hide what is real, namely that which is One.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE VERSUS GLIMPSES OF IT:
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 body’s state, how and where it is positioned and if you know anything about Enlightenment at all. It is merely a matter of not focusing on being someone definitive. The less focus, 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 all. But you do not get it before you stop distinguishing the glimpses, so they no longer differ, and you, therefore, have nothing to experience. Then without any transition, the Enlightenment of that which is One set in and the awareness of a world where there seems to be more than one is gone.

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.

But you are aware that the Enlightenment of that which is One will terminate your consciousness abruptly and completely because you sense the nothingness of you has been sucked into a black hole where you keep falling into the formlessness of oneness. So if you want to hold onto being someone, somewhere, thus scared of formlessness, you stop the fall by defining it. Since that requires more than one, you are, without any transition, back in a world where there seems to be more than one.*

That can be compared to having a dream about landing on the moon. When you suddenly wake up, there is no conscious transition from being an astronaut to someone in their bed. You are what you were before dreaming about the moon. 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. And you are not enlightened. Nothing has changed, except that you sense everything experienced is fake because you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

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 entering the formless void in a black hole of oneness. The memories pop up every time you have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

GLIMPSES OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
Unlike the Enlightenment of that which is One, its glimpses do not wipe out thoughts completely. But they are so compelling that you forget to assign thoughts with a specific meaning, thus more or less forgetting the world of the outward-facing senses for a while and being, and instead feeling the lightness of the glimpses.

When the glimpses are gone, and one does not feel light anymore, thus not special, many try to recall the glimpses by suppressing the darkness in themselves. But glimpses of Enlightenment do not come from exclusion but inclusion. Besides, you will not have more glimpses of Enlightenment if you want to use them for your benefit but want to be used by them. In the case of the latter, they eventually erase all wishes to be special, so there is not someone specific to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

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. Hence the Enlightenment they are dreaming about is not the Enlightenment of that which is One, but something to improve their life in a world where there seems to be more than one.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE CANNOT BE EXPERIENCED:
Those who talk much about Enlightenment often say it is about something specific. And since their explanations are compelling, seen in the context of the belief in more than one, you probably dismiss the Enlightenment of that which is One if it hits you because you did not experience something specific since that requires more than one.

Therefore, if somebody refers to experiences of Enlightenment, it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One, but glimpses of it experienced through 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 in a world outside 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 as you experience it in the world of 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.

A traffic sign pointing towards Berlin Airport has nothing to do with Berlin or the airport, even though there is an illustration of an aeroplane on the sign. And 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. And they do not point towards it, as that requires more than one. Instead, they point to the belief in being someone definitive because that hides the formlessness of oneness. But there are no specific steps to follow to have the Enlightenment of that which is One undo this belief. Alexius had not even heard about it when he bid the Enlightenment of that which is One welcome. And he did not even know that he did it.


*) If you regularly apply one or more of the Duality Hacks #1-5, the Enlightenment of that which is One (hack #6.1) do not scare you because you do not believe to be someone definitive, thus not having something to lose. Read more about the fear of oneness in Gracefully falling into the formlessness of oneness. And check out how to cancel out specific emotions such as fear in hack #3.2 Inclusiveness is freedom and hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality so that welcoming the Enlightenment of that which is One is not frightening.
