Reality cannot be known because it is that which is One and it takes more than one to realise something

Updated July 5, 2022

Since non-duality is that which is One and it takes more than one to experience something, it cannot be realised. So when you are not aware of anything, nothing seems to hide that which cannot be known. The purpose of Alexius’ Duality Hacks is therefore not to realise non-duality but that being aware of something is an illusion. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Mysterious experiences or writings like zen poems have nothing to do with non-duality. It is not mystical, pure or anything else because it takes more than one to be something and non-duality is that which is One. Hence Alexius’ Duality Hacks, like everything else that calls for more than one, is part of the illusion that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One.

But since Alexius’ Duality Hacks expose this illusion, you are also revealed as nothing when you apply them. Hence there does not seem to be something to hide, there never was or will be more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

No matter what and where you appear to be, it is like in a dream, you are not there. It is a fantasy. Nobody, however, is making it because there is no more than that which is One and it takes more than one to do something.

This may seem to take some time. But that is part of the illusion. There is no time because reality, namely the formlessness of oneness, is one perpetual present. Read more about that here. That is why there is no hurry to undo the belief in being someone with a beginning and an end. Nor any reason not to enjoy that. Read more about that in HACK #4 When you begin to live by duality, it is going to end.

The belief in being someone is bananas

Updated July 5, 2022

The brain creates the experiences you have in a dream, so it seems you are somewhere else than in your bed. The same applies to the experiences you have when you assume to be awake, except you are not in a bed somewhere but nowhere, as everything experienced is created by the brain from out of nothing to make it look like there is more than that which is One. But since oneness is formless, thus endless, there is no more than that which is One. So if you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you trust the brain when it claims your experience of this is assembled from frequencies picked up by the sensory system, although your experience solely is fabricated by the brain. Read more about that here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

No matter where you experience being in a dream, it is an illusion created inside you because you are in your bed. The same applies to where you experience being when you believe to be awake. In this case, however, it is not a dream happening inside you while you sleep in a heavenly bed.

There is no heaven, nor somebody having a dream or anything else because that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. Alexius’ Duality Hacks, therefore, is as fake as anything else that calls for more than one. Nevertheless, when there appears to be someone who believes, that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, Alexius’ Duality Hacks undo that belief.

You are set free from duality when you do not know what and where you are

Somebody cannot bid welcome ‘the Enlightenment of that which is One,’ but nobody can

Updated August 12, 2022

When every experience is perceived as a symbol of that which is One, none of them has the power to fend off the Enlightenment of that which is One because symbols are powerless. See hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Fear and other emotions may seem to be a hindrance for the Enlightenment of that which is One. It is not the emotions, though, that fend it off but that you believe they are yours. That which is you does not feel anything because it takes more than one to do so, and it is no different from that which is One. For the same reason, that which is you does not think, nor is it conscious of anything.

This does not mean you should try to stop this. First of all, that which is you cannot control anything as that calls for more than one. Secondly, while you appear to be someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is impossible to stop being aware of feelings and thoughts since that is what makes you appear to be there.

It is, of course, possible to deny the awareness of thoughts and feelings by meditating, for example. But whether you establish yourself to be someone who has something or nothing, you are definable and thus in denial of that which is you, as oneness is formless.

Pretending to be someone, on the other hand, what you have is not yours because what you pretend to be you are not. Thus nobody has thoughts and feelings or is conscious of anything. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation. Consequently, nobody bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

This is not the only way to become a nobody. As everything in a world of duality comes in pairs, there is no fear without trust, so if you are so full of fear that there is nothing else, it cannot be defined by trust. Therefore, since you are full of nothing, you are not somebody but nobody. See hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is freedom.

You could also stick to being the basic self by perceiving any kind of experience, whether it appears mundane or spiritual, as ‘it is what it is.’ See hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. Since that means emotions do not stick to you, they do not fend off the Enlightenment of that which is One. Nor will they prevent you from having a marvellous time in a world where there seems to be more than one until the Enlightenment of that which is One erases everything that requires more than one.

You do not need to refrain from sex or anything else to make these or any other duality hack work. However, if you are willing to have the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, Alexius’ Duality Hacks apply themselves the more you read Alexius’ Duality Hacks.

The willingness comes by itself when you admit you are not willing to have this belief undone because acknowledging that confirms what and where you appear to be is make-believe.

APPENDIX:
Since the application of the above duality hacks requires more than one, they are as illusionary as anything else in a world in a world of duality, including the writer and reader of this. However, the purpose of them is not to make us seem like we are somebody but that we, just like anything else that calls for more than one, are nothing because non-duality is formless, thus endless, so there is no more than that which is One.

The bliss of emptiness is only one second away

Updated July 9, 2022

What you believe in experiencing right now happened one second ago because it has taken the brain a second to produce your present experience. And then again, it did not occur because the brain created it from nothing and not from info received from your sensory system. The latter the brain presents as a fact, and you believe it because otherwise you are exposed as nothing. Read more about that in Where to find the bliss of the empty breath.

The bliss of emptiness is, therefore, only one second away. Going back a second requires nothing but to perceive your present experience as dunno what it is (read more about this in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy). Doing that, the undefined moment ignites a take-off into the empty breath (see hack #5.1 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing), revealing the nothingness from where the brain produces the experiences where you appear to be somebody in a world of something.

It is not a revelation where emptiness is exposed. But where something is revealed as nothing. Not in the sense that you stop seeing something but that you perceive it as nothing. You do not appear to be somebody in the absence of something, but nobody walking on blissful clouds of frictionless love. Read more about that in hack #5.2 The empty breath and the bliss of nothing.

Neither failure nor success

Updated November 7, 2022

In a long forgotten land, there lived an old man in a house far away from everything.

In forgotten land a long time ago, an old man was living all by himself in a house far from everything. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A FORGOTTEN LAND
In a land forgotten by time, a wise old man was said to know the way to the Enlightenment of that which is One. A young man, who dreamed about becoming Enlightened, travelled for months until he finally found the old man in an obscure place far from everything. He asked the old man if he could reveal the Enlightenment of that which is One, and the old man answered: »No problem if you are willing to work for it.«

»Of course,« said the young man, who was eager to get started, but a little surprised when the old man asked him to dig a ditch around his house. He assumed the old man was poor and that all secrets would be revealed if he did it for free.

He did his best to impress the old man, but it was not easy. The old man kept saying the work was not good enough. It could be much better, and the ditch should be much deeper. When the old man finally seemed satisfied, the young one thought he would finally be rewarded for his hard work.

EXPECTING SOMETHING FOR SOMETHING
For about a week, the young man patiently waited for the old man to reveal the Enlightenment of that which is One. Though the old man said nothing, he treated the old man with much respect, thinking the more he could make the old man feel good, the more he would reveal. However, the old man did not approach the young man for weeks until one day, he quietly asked him to fill up the ditch again.

The young man freaked out and started to wonder if the old man was in his right mind, but he decided to see what would happen if he did what he was told. And so he filled up the ditch until one could hardly see, there ever had been one.

A SHITTY AWARD
The young man was very proud of his work, and when the old man asked him to meet at his house in one hour, he thought, now all secrets will be revealed. Hence he opened the door to the house with a big smile. But it did not last long because the old man threw a bucket of cow shit on the young man from his hiding place above the door. That made the young man angrier than ever in his life – especially as through the shit, he saw how amazed the old man looked.

He left the old man furiously, thinking he had wasted months of his precious life with this sadistic man, who knew nothing about the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, after some time, he returned, and so one more time, he kindly asked the old man to teach him the secret way to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

Again the old man said yes and gave him one meaningless assignment after the other. A year went on like this, and when the old man one day again threw a bucket of cow shit on the young man, he quietly looked at the old man with a happy smile.

The young man did not feel young anymore, nor old. And he was not looking for secrets to be revealed in the future. He was not looking for anything at all, and neither did he assume that he in any way had done or was anything special. All his ideas were gone. He was empty, and in the emptiness, he saw nothing. Thus there was not something to hide the Enlightenment of that which is One.

NEITHER SUCCESS NOR FAILURE
In the above, Alexius probably has remixed old stories he heard in his 20s. He considered them spaced out and not in touch with modern life, which he assumed was about being recognised as somebody, like when he entered a disco, and the DJ turned down the music to greet him through the speakers. Nowadays, though, Alexius is not swimming in success. But since writing Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is not about that, he cannot fail.

One who is to be compared to ‘the Enlightenment of that which is One’ versus someone who is not [draft]

Updated November 7, 2022

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One has, like everybody else, its personality. But unlike everybody else, it is not definitive but relative. In other words, the character can, just like the hands of the body, for example, be used in many ways, as there is no attachment to a unique expression of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One has nothing to discuss and no need to participate in any communication!

On the other hand, the unenlightened need to belong to a particular group where they debate, meditate or hug to fabricate a feeling of oneness. However, by doing that, they establish that there is more than one, and oneness is an illusion.

The unenlightened assume that they produce thoughts themselves and that theirs are a significant contribution to the world. But nobody is thinking anything – like the radio only can transmit the signals it receives, a person only transmits the signals that come from the brain. Read more about that in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive to feel happy.

However, contrary to the radio, the unenlightened show off as self-made, giving the impression that the opinions it broadcasts are contemplated by itself. However, these ‘personal’ opinions seem dull to one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One. That is not because they are unreal but because the unenlightened take them seriously. It is comparable to persons in a dream establishing themselves as real, although they are nothing but a fantasy – only the dreamer is real.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The unenlightened are full of thoughts they assume are made by themselves and therefore represent their specific personality. In one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, there are also many thoughts, but there is no ‘I’ with the need to pick them up and put them together, so they seem to belong to someone specific. Hence thoughts are just passing by like birds in the sky.

That does not mean that one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One observes the thoughts passing by. When an angry thought pops up, the Enlightened gets mad but also calm because everything comes in pairs in a world duality. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One never waits because such a person has nothing to hope for. Neither does such a person live in the now because there is no life in a world where there seems to be more than one

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you see a movie, you forget it is not real, and you seem to go, where the movie takes you.

When we watch a movie, we forget it is not real, and for a while, we seem to go where the film takes us, although we do not really believe in being there. But, unfortunately, most have forgotten that the movie called The World is not real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The unenlightened likes to demonstrate their knowledge of ancient scriptures or popular saints to appear a part of something greater. But one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One has no need to be part of anything because there is no more than that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To have a quiet mind does not mean that there are no thoughts but that you do not believe in having created them – or anything else. In other words, thoughts and feelings seem to be rushing through one who is compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, just like they do in everybody else. However, the Enlightened do not identify with them.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The unenlightened see differences everywhere, and so does one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One. But the latter does not perceive them to make a difference.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One knows there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. Most others assume there must be more.

That does not mean that one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One knows about heaven or nirvana, how to unite with atman or god or transcend the self and whatnot. On the contrary, the Enlightened see it as a waste of time to obtain such states of mind because it requires more than one. Hence you remain within the illusion of a world where there seems to be more than one.

In the context of such a world, one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One prefers googling for how and where to get good food, clothes and other practical things that make it more comfortable to appear as someone instead of learning about kundalini and otherworldly states to avoid participating in a world where there seems to be more than one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Someone who is to be compared to the enlightenment of that which is one takes part in the world where there seems to be more than one in the same way that a televison takes part in it. Whatever is receives it plays out. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One takes part in a world where there seems to be more than one in the same way that television functions. Whatever it receives, it broadcasts as received. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One does not feel alienated when taking part in a world where there seems to be more than one because the Enlightened do not believe to be there. Besides, for the Enlightened, it is not about being or having something because the only thing known is that there is no more than that which is One. But that is not the same as that which is One is known. It cannot be known because it takes more than one to know something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

All light that can be seen is an illusion because it takes more than one to see something, and there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. So, therefore, the light from that which is One is not something you see, nor is it something you become since that also requires more than one.

To not see and neither be the light of that which is One, you must be willing to undo the belief in being someone. Forgetting what and where you are or not caring about being and having more than One, you are nobody, thus seeing nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Being grounded, wise, or anything else definable is not an attribute of one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One because someone like that does not need to be anything specific.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You may think what can be seen is real. But it is the other way around. Only that which cannot be seen is genuine. Reality is invisible because it is oneness, which is formless, thus without dimensions.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The enlightened are not bothered by thoughts because there is no need to fabricate a story with them.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Nobody walks around Enlightened in the world of appearances because it is an illusion to appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, and Enlightenment of that which is One is not an illusion. A little friend of Alexius shot this image. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

What you appear to be must be forgotten to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. That is probably why St. Paul, according to the New Testament, died daily.

In other words, nobody walks around Enlightened as that which is One. It is impossible because the Enlightenment of that which is One destroys a world where there seems to be more than one – but not literally because it is not real since there is no more than one. What is wiped out is the belief that t.

Having had that belief wiped out and then picking it up again, you appear to be just like everybody else in a world where there seems to be more than one. However, there is one big difference: You know from vague memories of the Enlightenment of that which is One, that there is no more than that which is One, so you do not believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one – you pretend to be there.

Since others might perceive one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One as detached, they conclude that they need to be detached to be Enlightened. But it is the other way around. You need not be or know anything to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a world where there seems to be more than one – like in a movie – everything has an end. Thus the unenlightened cherish the ideas of god, heaven, reincarnation, or anything else that seems to extend its life beyond a world where there seems to be more than one.

On the other hand, one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One deals with the world like playing a computer game. It is not possible to be in it, but it is possible to pretend it.

The unenlightened may ask, who is it, that pretends to be ‘there’ – but one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One would never ask such a question. There is no more than that which is One, so nobody pretends to be ‘there.’

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Alexius is not full of light but of nothing, as there is no more than that which is One, and it takes more than one to be Alexius. Yet, in a world where there seems to be more than one, he is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Though Alexius is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, he does not know what it is. So if you have the impression that he knows something, you may have fooled yourself into thinking his writings are based on something he understands. On the contrary, as a vessel, he types what he receives without understanding it.

Fortunately, there is not something to understand because no one has ever left oneness since it is formless, thus endless.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

»The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.« Jesus about Enlightenment, Matt 6:22, King James Bible.

Alexius’ body is not full of light. The Enlightenment of that which is One is formless, so it cannot be in a body defined by time and space. Besides, everything in the body is an illusion because making it takes more than one.

For the same reason, there is no way leading to the Enlightenment of that which is One. No worries. It is not needed because that which is One is formless, thus endless, so it cannot be left. Hence there is no Alexius or anybody else to Enlighten.

Enlightenment does not give you more because there is no more than that which is one [draft]

Updated November 7, 2022

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One does not know what it is because that requires more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, there is much to learn about how to function. In that context, Alexius knows something, for example, how to type and publish Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings on the web. But in the context of spirituality, Alexius knows nothing because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to know something. This article is written in that context.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a world where there seems to be more than one, you always need to be and have more so you can keep establishing there is more than that which is One.

Should you need to feel more spiritual, you want more people to express how wise you are, thus using their praise to deny your darker side and show off as spiritual.

But you can never welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One if you want more since that is founded on the belief that there is more than that which is One. Nor can you welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One if you want to use it to become spiritual because the Enlightenment of that which is One has no room for someone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since it takes more than one to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, somebody in a world where there seems to be more than one cannot be Enlightened by that which is One. However, a person may momentarily forget what and where it is. Hence there is not somebody to hide the Enlightenment of that which is One. Since Alexius is such a person, he is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Books and lectures may seem to provide some understanding of the Enlightenment of that which is One, but the more you think you understand, the further away you are. The same applies if you think you know it after reading Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. They are not meant to be understood but to help you unlearn what you believe in having learned.

You cannot bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One by wanting it but by not wanting to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Then you will not fight to have everything you know erased byThe Enlightenment of that which is One so that there is nothing left for the light to carry through a black hole into that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Only one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One can write Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, not because such a person knows what to write but what not to write. Thus his personality does not prevent the non-teachings from being written by themselves. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Only someone who has bid the Enlightenment of that which is One welcome knows that a world where there seems to be more than one is fake. Everybody, who believes they live in such a world, has the choice of continuing to believe that or the word of the Enlightened, which is that there is no more than that which is One. Consequently, a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. But almost everybody dismisses this because they want to go on searching for more.  Just like children want to go on believing in getting presents from Santa, even though the fact is that the friction from the speed needed to bring gifts to all the good children in one night would kill Santa the exact moment he sets off.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One is as alone as can be. Actually, everybody is, even though they may cover their emptiness with a full calendar. However, the Enlightened have no loneliness to hide because it knows it takes more than one to feel alone, and there is no more than that which is one.

Nevertheless, the Enlightened is excellent in relating to others because being together is perceived as a symbol of oneness. However, since everything is perceived as a symbol of oneness, the Enlightened have no urge to make something last, thus not fearing the end of a relationship, which is bound to come. Especially, because the unenlightened are in a relationship be part of something special, thus expecting to be missed, but the Enlightened never miss anything.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Nobody knows anything about spirituality. However, those not to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One do their best to act as if they are spiritual, thus knowing a lot. In contrast, one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One has no such need. There is nothing spiritual to know – except that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One has vague memories of it. Due to those, a world where there seems to be more than one is seen as fake. But without the Enlightenment of that which is One, you cannot know the experience of more than one is a trick. Thus it becomes a belief that there is no more than that which is One. However, according to scientists, it is also a matter of belief that a world where there seems to be more than one is real because it is nothing but empty space.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Alexius has no answer to the question, who am I? An explanation would be just as illusionary as the question since it implies there is more than oneness, although it is formless, thus without beginning and end. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The Enlightenment of that which is One does not illuminate anything. On the contrary, it is so bright that nothing can see. Besides, it requires more than one to see something, and there is no more than that which is one, as it is formless, thus endless. In other words, if you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you do not exist, and you know it. That is why everybody throughout history asked who am I? to establish they exist as someone definitive.

The tension from consistently doing something to appear as someone makes you feel tangible. But the more you feel that the more the Enlightenment of that which is One is fenced out.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The unenlightened may have a high consciousness attained through many years of meditation. But one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One has nothing because it takes more than one to have something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To remain in control, the unenlightened prefer not to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One but instead imitate the attributes of someone compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, assuming that it will expand their consciousness.

But the Enlightenment of that which is One does cannot expand anything. It does not cause something, as that requires more than one. For the same reason, one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One does not remember what it is. However, one thing is crystal clear: There is no more than that which is One, so a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion. This memory, though, is of no interest to those who want to expand their consciousness so that they appear more advanced than others.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The unenlightened likes to teach others the way to Enlightenment, but the Enlightened know there is no way.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One has no effect, as that would require more than one. Hence it wipes out the idea of cause and effect.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One neither makes you more nor less. Instead, it erases all memories of being someone. In other words, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not for you if you want to make a difference.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one cannot survive in the Enlightenment of that which is One because it takes more than one to believe something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Most spiritual ideas are not used to phase out one’s personality but to pump it up so you can appear more spiritual than others. But since any appearance requires more than one, and there is no more than oneness, being spiritual is just as fake as being anything else definable. See also the article All experiences are equally unreal.

Those few who do not pump up themselves with gibberish new age ideas, like being an ocean of cosmic compassion, have cracks in their personality, where the Enlightenment of that which is One can enter.

Of course, this is a metaphor. The Enlightenment of that which is One cannot enter anywhere, as that requires more than one. For the same reason, there is no love or other exciting things that some like to imagine in the Enlightenment of that which is One. Nor does it transform you into a wiser person or higher consciousness.

On the contrary, it erases what you believe in being, so there is nobody to experience that nothing smoothly falls through a black hole into that which always has been and will be since it is without beginning and end, namely the formlessness of oneness. This is, of course, also a metaphor because nothing can be added or subtracted to oneness, as that requires more than one.

Anyhow, if a person returns from the Enlightenment of that which is One to the illusion of a world where there seems to be more than one, it has not been enlightened, nor does it know oneness, as it takes more than one to know anything. But since there are vague memories of nothing but that which is One, such a person can be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

When the foundation for appearing in a world where there seems to be more than one is the knowledge that there is no more than that which is One, it is easy to have fun pretending to be someone in such a world because there is nobody to put at risk.

Read about the Enlightenment of that which is One in hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One. And read about pretending to be someone in hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One is one perpetual present, so it cannot be brought into a world of linear time. In other words, you must leave a world defined by time and space to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. Fortunately, such a world is an illusion. Hence there is nothing to leave but the belief that the experience of something with a beginning and end is real.

Life has no secrets

Updated November 6, 2022

There is nothing to search for. Searching comes from the desire of more, and there is no more than that which is one.

There is nothing to search for. Searching comes from the desire to be and have more than the oneness of life, but there is no more than that since it is formless, thus endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Life has no secrets. It is impossible because it is that which is one, and it takes more than one to have something. So why do people look for the meaning of life? The answer lies in the previous sentence. Life is that which is One, so if you believe in being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are without life. In other words, even though the oneness of life makes it possible to experience a world where there seems to be more than one, it is not there – just like a physical body is not in a dream, regardless of being the host of it.

Though some like to think, that the word of god is something written, but there is nothing in the New Testament that indicates that. In fact the word of god can neither be written or spoken.

Some like to think, that The Word of God is something written in a book like The New Testament, although nothing in it indicates that. Actually, The Word of God can neither be written or spoken. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

»In the origin The Word had been existing and That Word had been existing with God and That Word was himself God.« John 1:1, Aramaic Bible in Plain English.

Unfortunately most of those reading the New Testament reckon that it is The Word of God. But as god is that which is One and it takes more than one to write or read, the New Testament has nothing to do with The Word of God.

However, an echo of life can be heard and felt in a world where there seems to be more than one. Christianity calls it The Word of God, and in Eastern religions, it is often symbolised by the words Aum and Sohang. You could say that the oneness of life sends out an echo of itself to call you home. The echo does not reveal oneness but what obscures it, namely the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one. That said, it is, of course, a metaphor that oneness is calling you home because you have never left it since it is formless, thus endless,

Nevertheless, this article is written within the context of the belief that it is possible to be and have more than one. Within this context, hearing or feeling the echo of oneness is a call to go home. However, the echo has no beginning and end, so it is not a word that can be written or spoken. But, fortunately, it is very easy to hear and feel, it.

No chanting or any other action like that is necessary to hear/feel the vibration, that is symbolized by the word Aum. It comes to you automatically, when you do not differentiate the sounds of the world but include them all. In other words, when you do not focus or concentrate.

No chanting or reading in scriptures is necessary to hear or feel the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolise. It comes to you automatically when the apparent difference of the vibes in the world is not perceived to make a difference, which they do not do if you do not exclude any of them as if there is more than one. In other words, when you do not focus or concentrate on something specific, you are not someone definitive, but the unpronounceable vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolise.

THE VIBRATION THAT AUM, SOHANG OR THE WORD OF GOD SYMBOLISES IS …
… not a secret. Yet it appears hidden if you search for an elitist understanding rather than hearing or feeling the vibration, which can be heard or felt whenever you do not focus on hearing or feeling something specific.

When you hear or feel the unpronounceable echo of oneness, the sense of being someone definitive disappears. Thus there is nothing to transform.

For ages, people have been chanting Aum and Sohang or speculating about the meaning of The Word of God, assuming their secret would miraculously be revealed if they kept trying. But oneness does not make miracles or reveal anything because it takes more than one to do anything.

However, it only takes one chant of Aum or Sohang to hear or feel the echo of oneness. That is, if you do not look for peak experiences of an almighty god, love or something mysterious and sensational that can be mentally explained.

TO TUNE INTO HEARING THE ECHO OF ONENESS …
… you say AU very slowly, whereafter M almost hangs in the air as a whispering sound until it is replaced by a gentle humming from somewhere in the distance. That is the echo of oneness. If you feel like laughing, you heard it.

This is the Hindi symbol of ´sohang´– grabbed on the web. <i>The graphic is grabbed from the web</i>.

The Hindi symbol of Sohang is grabbed from the web.

You can also get in touch with this distant humming by saying sohang – eventually combined with listening to the sound coming from the breath. Say SO when breathing in, and after a tiny break, say HANG when breathing out. The so is not important, except for tuning in. The same applies to the first part of HANG. After having said SO-HA(N), you remain on (A)NG at the end of breathing out. When it fades out, you hear the humming, the echo of oneness, in the silence.

Another way to hear the echo of oneness is to stop focusing on any sound in particular until you cannot distinguish the sounds you hear. Hence they turn into one sound, namely the echo of oneness.

You do not have to sit in a particular posture, repeat a mantra, chant, pray, wear unique clothes or be in a specific place with special people to hear the echo of oneness. Neither does there have to be stillness inside or outside of you. All you have to do is be devoted to what you do.

One of the first times Alexius sensed the humming from the edge of the universe, he was busy handing out flyers on a pedestrian street. He was so devoted to it that the noise of the road became a distant sound fusing into a humming, which, although distant, cancelled out the feeling of being there. It was like the sum of all feelings turned into a transparent one.

KNOWING IT IS THERE, IT IS EASIER TO CONNECT
When Alexius was a child, he liked the music from a radio station that was difficult to tune into because it was on a frequency between two noisy stations. But as he knew of its existence and where to look, he succeeded in tuning into it with much determination and the finest subtlety.

Likewise, since you now know it is possible to hear the humming of oneness from the edge of the universe regardless of the world’s noise, you can tune into it through devotion to your present activity or via Aum or Sohang. If there appears to be too much noise in the head, join it until it fuses into one sound.

TO FEEL THE ECHO OF ONENESS
Apart from hearing the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolise, you can also feel it – especially if you are more emotional than audio-minded. Just do the same as above but put more weight into feeling it. Feeling it can be compared to sensing your body purring like a cat, or like it trembles of fear but without fearing anything, or shaking of coldness but more lightly and not feeling cold or anything else specifically, or feeling the bubbling effect in the body from quickly drinking the foam of Coca-Cola.* In this case, the sensation is not limited to tingling in a specific part of the body. Furthermore, it can be compared to a subtle version of the sound coming from a vacuum cleaner, the ventilation in an airport, or from the edge of the breath (not the sound of breathing in or out, but at the edge of them).

When this gets more intense, it may feel like you are the vibration from an earthquake or a giant laundry machine on the spin cycle. It is felt in the body and outside of it as if there is no transition between the body and the appearances outside it. If you do not panic but go with its flow, you forget about the body and anything outside of it, so no memory seems to hide that which cannot be experienced, namely, the formlessness of oneness.

However, since this article is not about the formlessness of oneness but something that can be experienced, we continue our talk about the primordial vibration from the edge of the universe. Feeling or hearing it is the same – like two sides of the same coin. Nevertheless, it is not advisable to be devoted to both simultaneously but one at a time.

Alexius is more into hearing than feeling something, so it took him a long time to feel the echo of oneness. When he finally did – after several years – it was so intense that the belief in being someone specific was momentarily undone. Thus the echo of oneness had brought him into the Enlightenment of that which is One, where you do not feel anything as that takes more than one.

See Forgetting the world of the outward-facing senses, if you want to read how Alexius finally left the outward-facing senses of feeling to completely feel the echo of oneness.

Many may already have heard or felt the echo of oneness coming from the edge of the universe. Still, as they are biassed towards something mysterious and sensational, they do not pay attention to the quiet humming that constantly is there because it is the basis for the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one.

WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE?
Some people complain that their neighbour is vacuuming while they meditate, but most likely, the neighbour is asleep. And it is not the sound of a vacuum cleaner they hear but the distant humming from the edge of the universe that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises. Awareness of the vibration can also be compared to hearing the distant sound of the air conditioning in a prominent place like an airport or a wave at the shore that never stops going up.

But since most look for an exceptional experience, they brush off something so simple as the gentle humming from the edge of the universe.

TO REMEMBER YOUR HOME
Already familiar with the humming that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolise, you do not tune into it all the time if you still want to appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. But you may tune into it now and then to ensure you have not forgotten the key to the formlessness of oneness – just like you sometimes check your pocket to hear or feel if the key to your home is there.

ALEXIUS AND THE ECHO OF ONENESS
The above is Alexius’ way of communicating, how you can hear and feel an echo of oneness. Using Aum or Sohang as a stepping stone is not a new idea. But so far, it has mainly been promoted in mysterious ways by people who do not hear or feel it themselves but hope that if they repeat those words repeatedly, a miracle will happen. However, looking for that, they miss the gentle humming coming from the edge of the universe.

But it was not through the words Aum or Sohang that Alexius started to hear or feel the humming they symbolise. Since his teenage years, he has been used to being ‘lifted’ by this humming – for example, while watching a movie, having a walk with his parents or sitting all by himself in a park. And so, when he was about 40 years old, it suddenly dawned on him that this is what people try to reach when chanting Aum or Sohang.

However, it is not about reaching but tuning in. When Alexius can do it, so can you because even though you may appear different from him, what makes it possible for the two of you to experience that you are different is the same, namely the formlessness of oneness from where this humming comes


*) This is not meant as a recommendation of Coca-Cola. Alexius only tried it in his childhood.

Alexius in Wonderland

Updated November 6, 2022

Those who hear or feel the humming from far away echoing oneness cannot use it to improve themselves or the world. But they will be used by it as a door to close the experience of a world where there seems to be more than one, so there is no experience to hide that which cannot be experienced, namely that which is One. That does not mean they will be transformed because that requires more than one. Nor does it mean they will cease to exist because they have never existed since there is no more than oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If a world where there seems to be more than one is unreal, but that which is One is real, it is impossible to be in a world where there is more than one. And yet, we appear to be in such a world. However, one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, like Alexius, does not believe but pretends to be there, like when playing a computer game. That is why his below description of the world standing still, for example, does not reflect reality but how Alexius experiences pretending to be where he is not. The same applies to listening to the echo of oneness or having other glimpses of Enlightenment.

THE WORLD STOOD STILL
The first time the world stood still was in Alexius’ teen years. He looked out the window, and everything was covered by snow. It was like the whiteness outside of him turned everything white inside him while Donovan’s Jennifer Juniper was playing in the background.

He forgot to participate in the story of time and space. And the air, he perceived as so thin that there was no space between anything. Although music was coming out of his speakers, the silence was so loud that all he heard was the echo of oneness.

Much later, on a walk along the sea, the echo of oneness was there again – and not so much later, when he was walking on a pedestrian street busy handing out flyers, the distant echo of oneness was so intense that even though people were moving around, it was like there was no movement and no people. He did not know what was going on, nor did he try to figure it out because when you hear the echo of oneness, you do not need more.

After being accustomed to hearing the echo of that which is One, he realised that this distant humming is what the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise and that people do not hear it because they expect those words to reveal a higher understanding. But there is no understanding get, and neither is there any need for it when you hear the distant humming that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolise.

Read Life has no secrets, if you want to learn how to hear and feel the vibration that AumSohang and The Word of God symbolise.

THE ECHO OF ONENESS
The word guitar is a symbol of something that makes amazing sounds. But you do not sense them when reading the word unless you have heard them before.

That is the same regarding Aum, Sohang or The Word of God. These words symbolise the distant humming of oneness. But if you have not heard the unpronounceable vibration of oneness, they will not remind you of the distant sound you hear from a computer when your ear is close to it.

To be so close to the computer, you have to stop focusing on the world empowered on its screen. The same applies to hearing or feeling the distant echo of oneness coming from the edge of the universe. In other words, you must stop focusing on the appearances in a world where there seems to be more than one to hear or feel the echo of oneness. You can read what it feels and sounds like here.

The echo of oneness hangs about a world where there seems to be more than one. It is the engine of that world but not in the sense that it produces it. That is not possible because it echoes that without a beginning or end. Hence it cannot create anything specific. But its energy is used to keep together the imagination of a world where there seems to be more than one, although it is not there itself – just like the dreamer’s energy makes it possible to have a dream but not to manifest the dreamer in the dream.

The vibration that ‘Aum’ and ‘Sohang’ symbolises is your launching pad to oneness.

Therefore, this primordial vibration is not for you if you dream about getting famous or rich or making the world a better place per a specific belief. It knows nothing to achieve or make better. On the contrary, it undoes everything conceivable, so there is nothing but that which cannot be experienced, namely, the formlessness of oneness.

Glimpses of Enlightenment are not experienced in the body you used to know. It is rather like when the dentist’s anaesthesia in the mouth slowly stops working. You feel something, but it is not as if it is the body you used to know. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE VERSUS GLIMPSES OF IT
The Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced as that requires more than one. Therefore, the above is not about the Enlightenment of that which is One but about having glimpses of it by hearing the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolise. Such glimpses you have when the definable world of the outward-facing senses is so far-off that the distant humming from the edge of the universe is the nearest.

But this is just one aspect of having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. The other ones are striking visions of light, hearing the crispness of ethereal harmonies, tasting the sweetness of oneness, or feeling any of these expressions. However, since society is very focused on visual impact, you may only have heard of the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

The inward-facing senses reveal glimpses of Enlightenment when the outward-facing ones are partly closed. Thus they are not physically tangible. As long you experience the Enlightenment of that which is One in one of its aspects, you have glimpses of it. But if you stop perceiving one of these aspects as made of different elements, there is nothing to define you as an experiencer. Hence, since nobody experiences them, there is nothing but 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).

REALITY IS NEVER-ENDING. THUS EVERYTHING THAT ENDS IS UNREAL
Compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One or having glimpses of it, appearing to be someone in the world of the outward-facing senses feels like a distraction. But why not enjoy this definable world? There is nothing to lose. You are not someone definitive, so you can pretend to be anybody in the world of the outward-facing senses. If you are into concepts of love, you can perceive the world through glasses of love. It is all make-believe, so you may as well pretend to be in wonderland. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation. Especially if you do it with the duality flow because then your wonderland is contrasted by sorrow, so you feel wonderful when you are sad. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

When the world experienced through the outward-facing senses is an illusion, one may conclude that the world experienced through the inward-facing senses is real. But what is real never ends, so both the inward and outward-facing senses are unreal because all their experiences have an end  – including glimpses of Enlightenment.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE IS A JOURNEY WITHOUT DISTANCE TO THAT WHICH IS ONE
Metaphorically, you can say that what you experience via the inward-facing senses is a wall surrounding that which is One. The wall seems to have no substance. Yet it can be seen, heard, felt or tasted. Suppose you do not try to define this. In that case, the outward-facing senses have nothing to work with and a door that looks like a black hole, with a thin frame of white light inside it and rapidly spiralling bright light around it, suddenly and very quickly sucks you into it.

However, you do not reach oneness since the black hole has no end. Nonetheless, since you have the belief in being someone undone, you are what you always have been and will be, namely, the formlessness of oneness. In other words, you have never been someone experiencing something.

The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them

Updated November 5, 2022

The echo of that which is one, which often is symbolised by the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God and which comes from the edge of the universe can be heard or felt right now via the inner senses, because they are not limited by time and space.

The echo of that which is One is often symbolised by the words Aum, Sohang or The Word of God. It comes from the edge of the universe, but since the inward-facing senses are not limited by time and space, for them, it takes no time to go there to hear or feel the echo of oneness coming out of a black hole. See, Going back to the first moment of duality.

None of the facets of the Enlightenment of that which is One can be experienced because it requires more than one to be conscious of something. Thus when you think you have felt, seen, heard, or tasted it, it was not the Enlightenment of that which is One but glimpses of it. They are, like a movie trailer, only samples, thus not the Enlightenment of that which is One. This article is about how to experience those samples that can be felt, seen, heard, or tasted with the inward-facing senses while still in the world of the outward-facing senses.

Please be aware that the ways described below to have glimpses of Enlightenment will not work if you look forward to being or having more, as their function is to undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is one. However, this does not mean you must restrain yourself from getting more but not care about it.

THE ECHO OF ONENESS
As already implied, oneness cannot be revealed because it calls for more than one. However, when you keep feeling or hearing it echoing from the edge of the universe, the belief in a world defined by time and space is, eventually, undone. Hereafter, the belief does not appear to hide there never was or will be more than that which is one.

In other words, the more you ignore the world defined by time and space, produced by the outward-facing senses, the more a world not limited by time and space is experienced by the inward-facing senses. Without time and space, it takes no time to go to the edge of the universe (read more about that here), where the echo of oneness has been used to create a fantasy world of time and space which seems genuine until you feel or hear this primordial vibration, often symbolised by Aum, Sohang or The Word of God.

This is the Hindi symbol of ´sohang´ – grabbed from the web

The Hindi symbol of Sohang.

»With every exhalation the soul recites ‘Hang’ and with every inhalation it recites ‘So’. Thus every soul counts the mantra of Sohang (So plus Hang) twenty-one thousand and six-hundred times every day and night.« Gherand Samhita, stanza 84.

In Eastern religions the echo of oneness is symbolised by the word ‘Aum’ or ‘Sohang’ and in the New Testament by ‘The Word of God’: »In the origin The Word had been existing and That Word had been existing with God and That Word was himself God.« John 1:1, Aramaic Bible in Plain English.

One who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One perceives ‘The Word’ in the above quote as a metaphor for the unpronounceable vibration you feel or hear when not totally focused on the world of the outward-facing senses. However, the unenlightened speculates about what exact words this qoute hints at, even though there is not a single verse in the Bible referring to ‘The Word of God’, as something that is written or can be spoken.

The vibration that AUM or Sohang symbolizes comes from the edge of the universe, which is only far away if you let yourself be deceived by a world defined by linear time as experienced through the outer senses.

Glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One come from a black hole at the edge of the universe. However, this is not far away when you ignore the outward-facing senses and their world defined by time and space but instead go with the inward-facing ones because they are not ruled by time and space. Thus you can feel. see, hear, or taste the glimpses regardless of where you appear in the world of the outward-facing senses.

A way to ignore the outward-facing senses so you can feel or hear the echo of oneness with the inward-facing senses is not to be exclusive but inclusive. When you include all that you feel or hear – or are willing to – the sum of it is felt or heard by the inward-facing senses. It feels or sounds like the humming of nothing and everything. And it is like being both in the world of the outward and inward-facing senses. If you want to read about inclusiveness versus exclusiveness, check hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is freedom.

You can also use the word Aum or Sohang as a launching pad for feeling or hearing the humming from the edge of the universe. Read the article Life has no secrets to learn that without spending years meditating, chanting and whatnot.

READ ABOUT THE INWARD AND OUTWARD-FACING SENSES:

When your eyes become single, there is no separation to hide the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

When your eyes become single, there is no separation to hide the Enlightenment of that which is One.

THE THIRD EYE
Seeing glimpses of oneness is done via the inward-facing sense, often called the third eye, a single ‘eye’ in the middle of the two eyes above the two eyebrows.

»The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.« Matt 6:22, King James Bible. This makes much sense to one who is to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One but obviously not to the unenlightened, because in the new international version of the New Testament this sentence has been changed to: »The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.«

The enlightenment of that which is One is bid welcome by completely ignoring the outward-facing senses. First time this happened for Alexius was when he returned home totally exhausted after a long nights work of taxi driving and simply was too tired to focus.

In other words, to be offbeat, exhausted, confused or maybe even drunk is a way to forget the world ofthe outward-facing senses, so that there is no world to see, thus nothing to hide the Enlightenment of that which is One. In fact anything that is not part of a scheme to fabricate images defined by time and space will do.

If that includes drugs Alexius does not know, because he has not experienced them. Yet he can say from looking at others taking drugs, that it seems to be more about expanding the consciousness of a world where there seems to be more than one than undoing it.

»Direct your eyes toward the middle of the eyebrows and meditate upon your own self. It is Shambhavi Mudra, the most secret practice of all the Tantra scriptures.« Gherand Samhita, stanza 59.

The positioning of the body, while activating the third eye, does not matter.

The positioning of the body, while activating the third eye, does not matter, as long as the body does not bother you.

Practically speaking you can turn off the visual outward-facing sense and open the third eye by closing the eyes and lightly, without any concentration, hold a finger on the third eye. You can do it anywhere in any position. However, it is best to do in a dark room, so you do not think the revelation of light comes from the world of the outward-facing senses.

If something like this is dechiffered into different colors and forms, you will have glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is one, but if you do not judge any colors or forms to be different from each other the apparent differences will explode into one bright light.

If having a vision like this and it is deciphered into an experience of different colours and shapes around a centre, it is a glimpse of ‘the Enlightenment of that which is One.’ But if you on the other hand do not judge the apparent different colours and forms to make a difference or to come from somewhere specific, one bright and colourless light, that seems to explode from out of nowhere wipes out all thoughts collected to shape you as somebody so that nobody gracefully falls into the formlessness of oneness.

Since the eyes always looks for the greatest contrast of light, your closed eyes automatically search the darkness until they move inwards and upwards towards the third eye from where they settle at a lightshow radiating at such speed that its colours hardly is perceived to differ.

»Touching eyeballs as a feather, lightness between them opens into the heart and there permeates the cosmos.« Sochanda Tantra, stanza 13.

If your eyes do not automatically move inwards and upwards into the area of the inward-facing senses above the eyebrows, you may help them by gently pressing the thumb and middle finger on the outer corner of the eyeballs and the middle finger on the third eye.

However, this is not really commendable, since even the slightest effort requires focus, and it is not focus but defocus that bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One or glimpses of it. Furthermore this may give you the impression that certain physical postures can open the third eye.

None of the inward-facing senses are reached via a specific posture or way of thinking. But deactivating the outward-facing senses can be achieved in this way, so if you find a specific technique that seems helpful regarding this by all means go for it. However, the fastest way to deactivate the outward-facing senses is to not know what and where you are.

A way to to deactivate the outward-facing senses is to use an eye massager such as RENPHO Eye Massager with Heat Compression. Besides from turning off the outward-facing sense of seeing, the heat soften the eyes. And when they are relaxed, they do not focus. Hence they automatatically turn inwards and upwards to merge with the third eye.

»… and there shall be no light there, and they need no candle there, neither the light of the sun, for the Lord God giveth them light.« Rev. 22:5

The thought construction that seems to keep you together as someone tangible is left at the edge of a black hole.

The thought construction that seems to keep you together as someone tangible must be left at the edge of a black hole so that there is nothing to smoothly fall into the formlessness of oneness.

When your eyes are so soft that they do not focus, there is nothing to prevent glimpses of Enlightenment to merge into one bright white light, namely the Enlightenment of that which is One. It extracts all thoughts, that you have stored making you appear as someone definitive, and leave them at the edge of what may look like a black hole, so there is nobody to experience the nothingness of you smoothly falling into the formlessness of oneness.

You can read more about a black hole in the article The ins and outs of a black hole.

Enlightenment is not an out-of-the-body experience as it is not an experience, but its preliminary stage of bliss and compassion, which is connected to the world via the pineal gland, is an experience that is often perceived to be out-of-the-body.

The enlightenment of that which is one is not an out-of-body experience. It is not an experience at all. But its preliminary stages of bliss and compassion, which in the world probably is connected with the pineal gland, is something that may be felt as an out-of-body experience.

However, most are afraid of loosing their identity, so they settle for glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, which is like a blissful out-of-body experience – presumably linked to the pineal gland which appears to foster states like that.

If you are not tempted to stop at this bliss, but to go where someone definitive cannot go, namely into the Enlightenment of that which i One, it is not an out-of-body experience. On the contrary, there is no experience at all, nor consciousness, because to be awate of something requires more than one.

If you want to leave the Enlightenment of that which is One and be reshaped as someone definitive, you must recollect the thoughts, that was left at the edge of a black hole so you could enter it as nobody.

Returning from the Enlightenment of that which is One to a world where there seems to be more than one, you cannot know, you have been at the other side of a black hole, because you were not there and there is no other side, since there is no more than that which is one. In other words, the person you appear to be is not Enlightened. Yet, due to vague memories of that which is One, you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

It is not possible though for somebody else to know, this. You will hardly grasp it yourself. But for sure you grasp, that a world where there seems to be more than one is not real.

ac1d3bc0-5bae-4dac-921e-8c1c4d9f64e1ETHEREAL HARMONIES
The airy music you can experience with the inward-facing senses is full of ethereal harmonies, probably floating out of a black hole at the edge of the universe.

»I heard a sound from heaven like the sound of cascading waters and like the rumbling of loud thunder. The sound I heard was also like harpists playing on their harps.« Revelation 14:2, Holman Christian Standard Bible.

Being used to take a ride in the world of the inward-facing senses, that opens up when the outward-facing senses are not fully activated to experience a world defined by time and space, you sense the first sentence of this quote refers to ‘Aum’ or ‘Sohang’ or ‘The Word of God,’ and that the second one to ethereal music.

»At midnight when not a single sound is heard, close your ears with both hands and do Purak Pranayama. Listen to the sounds in your right ear which are very pleasant. The first sound that you will hear is of a pine bird, the second of a flute, third of a cloud, fourth of a dragon bee, the fifth of a ringing bell and then of a gong of metal. Sounds of trumpet, drum etc. are also heard.

Except for having scim read The New Testament and Bhagavad Gita Alexius have not read religious scripts. Therefore, most of the words in the quote from Gherand Samhita are meaningless to him. But since he hears music inside him, it is easy to pick the essence of the quote is the bliss of listening to ethereal harmonies. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Besides these, many other sounds are heard if it is practiced daily. These sounds are Anahata (unproduced) and come on their own accord. Nada is related to light. Light is related to mind, so mind gets itself merged in a sound which is the seat of the Lord. Therefore, practice of Bhramari gives Siddhi of Samadhi (i.e., makes Samadhi possible).

Mind gets eightfold more pleasure in the act of meditation than Japa (repeating God’s name), eightfold more interest in Tapas (penance) than the meditation, and eightfold more interest in music or sound than the Tapas. There is nothing greater than music.« Gherand Samhita, stanzas 77-81. Besides for the word ´Nada´ meaning music Alexius does not know the meaning of the Hindi words in this quote, but hearing music inside him – though not so bombastic as described in this quote – he gets the overall meaning of it.

Using noise-cancelling headphones is a great way to close off the outward-facing sense of hearing. Alexius prefers in-ear headphones, though, as they can also be used when going to bed.

A practical way to stop hearing the world of the outward-fencing senses and start listening to the music of the inward-fencing ones is to put both thumbs in your ears or use noise-cancelling headphones or in-ear headphones. Then without focusing or trying to define anything, be nothing but the ethereal music coming to you from what may seem far away.

For tuning in, it is best not to go with the sounds from the left ear. They often come from a busy mind. So instead, follow the harmonies that appear to come from an empty space a bit outside of the right ear. That said, do not pay too much attention to directions.

Maybe you will not hear ethereal harmonies immediately but the humming symbolised by ‘Aum’ or ‘Sohang’ or ‘The Word of God.’ If so, go with that glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One. It could also be that you ‘hear’ thoughts. But they will not disturb you from hearing eternal harmonies if that is what you want – nor from having visions of light, infinite sweetness or sublime intimacy.

Tasting the sweetness of oneness helps you not to focus on the world of the outward-facing senses. Since this eventually results in not perceiving the apparent differences to make a difference, there is not something specific to hide that which is One.

THE TASTE OF ONENESS
The taste of oneness can be compared to the transparent taste of the foam on a milkshake with a few drops of honey and maybe a hint of either liquorice, strawberry, or mint. It can also be compared to how marshmallows – especially those with a flavour of strawberries – interact with the palate.

Some Chinese Herb Formulations or teas – for example Spring Dragon Longevity Tea – enhance the taste of oneness, provided you already are in touch with it. The same applies to the Ayurvedic teas, that Alexius have tasted that include liquorice.

But it is best not to compare the taste of oneness or other glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One to anything else, as all comparisons are based on definitions from the past, thus cancelling out the ever-present glimpses of Enlightenment.

»Your lips drip nectar, my bride, honey and milk are under your tongue.« Song of Solomon 4:11.

»A land flowing with milk and honey« Exodus 3:8

»Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never be thirsty, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him as a well of water springing up into everlasting life.« John 4:10-4:14.

Even though this taste is called the nectar of life in some scriptures, you should not expect it to make you younger or inject you with more energy in the world of the outward-facing senses. Getting more is an illusion based on the belief that there is more than that which is One.

One way of undoing this belief is not to focus because without it, the apparent differences in a world where there seems to be more than one become blurred. Thus different appearances do not seem to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. Fortunately, the side-effect of the technique for the taste of oneness is defocusing.

The inner sense of taste not only stops the compulsive focusing on forms but also your cravings for sweets and to experience  something definable. The taste of life is always there and it is free. Neither do you have to meditate or be pure to consume it. All you have to do is to put your tongue behind the uvula. And if you cannot do that, it is also OK, because doing so is just meant to help you deactivating the outer senses and the only thing that really accomplish that, is the intention to do it. Just like even you are at a springboard, you will not dive from it, if that is not your intention of going there.

The inward fasing sense of taste does not only diminish the compulsive focusing on something definitive but also your cravings for more, for example sweets. This taste is always there. It is free, and you do not have to meditate or be pure to enjoy it. All you have to do is to put your tongue behind the uvula and devote yourself to the taste of oneness. If you cannot get your tongue all the way, it is not a problem. Doing so is meant to help you deactivating the outward-facing senses and the only thing that really accomplish this, is the intention of doing that. In other words, reaching the uvula with your tongue is good enough. Actually, when you hold the underneath of your tongue on the soft area beneath the uvula you feel the empty breath (see What does ‘the empty breath’ feel like?) and get the sweet taste of oneness. This is not a metaphor, nor second-hand knowledge but Alexius’ experience from tasting the subleness of oneness on both sides of the uvula. As a result of this technique, the empty breath is activated. It expands the breathing, which makes the the body feel glorious. And the soft taste of oneness prevents you from focusing on the world of the outward-facing senses. Thus you feel absorded by the happiness of abstractness.

The taste of oneness unfolds under the tongue, when it is moved behind the uvula (the skin flap hanging down in the back of the mouth at the entrance to the throat). Placing it there makes you feel like you are not in the world even though you appear there. Besides it cutbacks the need to focus on the world of the outward–facing senses and also the longing for more, especially the craving for sweets. That is if you devote yourself to it – no techniques work without devotion. Yet devotion can work without a technique.

To get the tongue behind the uvula you may have to press it backwards for a long time, maybe for months, and finally use a finger to push it the rest of the way. However, this may make you feel as if you are about to vomit. No worries – it is just a feeling. When you are used to keeping your tongue there, it is easy, and there is no sense of vomiting.

»Khechari Mudra is turning the tongue backwards into the cavity of the cranium and turning the eyes inwards toward the eyebrow center.« Haha-Yoga Pradipika, Chapter 3, stanzas 32-37.

To taste the sweetness of oneness, called Khechari Mudray in the above quote, you do not have to literally replicate the ancient technique. Neither do you have to push the tongue behind the uvula as Alexius wrote above. Reaching the soft area underneath the front of the uvula with the backside of the tongue will do. See also the explanation in the above caption.

THERE IS NO WAY TO THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
You do not welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One or samples of its four facets by becoming purer. Neither by breathing wholly, eating healthy or anything else you can do in the world of the outward-facing senses. Still, things like that may help deactivate the outward-facing senses.

However, no technique can do that if it is not the intention of executing it. In other words, the first step is solely about purpose. If that is to deactivate the outward-facing senses, many techniques may work. The second step is to devote yourself to the lucid journey in the world of the inward-facing senses.

These steps only apply to having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One and not to welcome in its entirety, as it takes more than one to take any step.

The part of the world of the outer senses you want to experience is not meant to be blurry but in focus, so what you see is definable. It is the other way around with the world of the inner senses,. In other words, the two worlds does in most cases not work well together. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The part of the world of the outward-facing senses you want to experience is not supposed to be blurry. It must be in focus to make the experience definable. It is the other way around in the world of the inward-facing senses. Your experiences there are abstract. Hence mixing the two worlds does not work out.

DAILY LIFE WITH GLIMPSES OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
It is probably best not to be active in the world of the outward-facing senses while having visions of light. That is because the visual glimpses of Enlightenment can become so intense that the world of the outward-facing senses is hardly sensed.

However, if the technique for tasting the sweetness of oneness is only used for defocusing, it can be carried out all the time while being active in the world of the outward-facing senses. And you can enjoy the ethereal harmonies if you do it without putting your thumbs in the ears and not too long at a time. That also applies to hearing or feeling the vibration that Aum, Sohang and The Word of God symbolise. See Life has no secrets.

The result is the experience of a world less defined. Not to the extent, though, that you cannot move around but that you feel you are carried around.

That is, as long as you do not take the full tour of these glimpses because after 20 minutes, 45 at most, it ends with the Enlightenment of that which is One. Thus you no longer experience being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, nor in oneness since that requires more than one. You are not someone at all, so there is no memory or consciousness of ever having believed that. Instead, there is what always has been and will be, namely that which is one.

The Hebrew word Elohim was originally a symbol for one perpetual present.

The word god, which is a translation of the Hebrew word Elohim, was at first meant to be a metaphor for that which is one and never ends. Hence the word god was originally a symbol for one perpetual present. Maybe because that is not understandable, when you believe to be in a world of linear time, the meaning of the word gradually changed, so that god became a symbol for one almighty force believed to have created the world defined by time and space in its own image.

But what is not definable cannot create something definable. Hence a world defined by time and space is an illusion and so is the perceived creator of that world.

APPENDIX ABOUT THE QUOTES
The terminology of yoga and scriptures – apart from The New Testament and Bhagavad Gita – is unknown to Alexius. So he does not know the scriptures quoted above. He found the quotes by searching the internet.

When everything is included, there does not appear to be something outside you. Consequently, nor inside, as that requires something outside you. Hence there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness.

Alexius does not side with Eastern or Western religions or new-age philosophy. Generally, they exclude what they judge as wrong by projecting it onto non-believers to make them tainted and themselves pure. Yoga, for example, is often based on meditation, where you must exclude something deemed evil to become pure, thus able to return to oneness. But that which is One is formless, thus endless, so you can neither add nor subtract from it. If you try to do that, you enhance the belief that there is more than that which is One.


NOTES:

The inward and outward-facing senses, the Enlightenment and its glimpses

Updated November 28, 2022

Inner visions of light of anything at all is not the enlightenment of that which is one, as it takes more than one to have a vision. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It takes more than one to have a vision, so no matter how impressive it may be, it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One but a glimpse of it. It is comparable to a movie trailer, a sample of the whole, thus not undivided.

The world of the outward-facing senses is experienced via seeing, hearing, feeling and tasting/smelling something that appears material. The world of the inward-facing senses can also be seen, heard, felt and tasted. However, you do not get a sense of something tangible but abstract. It is also here that you welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

It comes through a hole that sometimes seems black. See the article The ins and outs of a black hole. But following the light into it is the end of both the outward and inward-facing senses. Hence the experience of something is over. Therefore, if you are aware of something, you are not in the Enlightenment of that which is One. Instead, you are in the world of something where you, via the inward-facing senses, have glimpses of Enlightenment while also noticing the world of the outward-facing senses.

If you for a moment forget what and where you are you are, the world of something does not appear to hide the formlessness of oneness.

You get into the Enlightenment of that which is One when its glimpses are not perceived to differ because then there is no separation to define you as someone definitive. Hence there is nobody to prevent the construction of thoughts that have replaced the formlessness of oneness with something specific being extracted by an exceptionally bright white light. Nor is there somebody to be aware that there is nobody. Consequently, nothing gracefully falls through a black hole that is no more because there is no experience to hide the formlessness of oneness.

Therefore, since what you believe in being has not been Enlightened, you appear to be the same if returning to the experience of being someone definitive. However, you do not believe this experience is real due to vague memories of formlessness. Hence you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.


Since the Enlightenment of that which is One has no beginning and end, someone definitive cannot experience it. But glimpses of it – for example, travelling through lucid worlds of light – have a beginning and an end, so they can be experienced. This is done through the inward-facing senses, when the outward ones are toned down.

The outward and inward-facing senses
The outward-facing senses are geared to experience a world perceived as outside you, thus separated from you, whereas the inward-facing senses help you experience a world that does not seem separated from you. However, that does not mean it is inside you. There is neither anything inside nor outside of you, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than that which is one.

It is the same within the context of a world where there seems to be more than one, because, scientifically speaking, it consists of empty space. Therefore, what you experience is make-believe – also reading that it may be easier to undo this deception by turning down the volume of the outward-facing senses, and turning up the volume of the inner ones.

If you seem to see an E here, you are using the E, you have made in your mind, to hide all the empty space.

If you believe in seeing an ‘E’ here, you focus on seeing something recognisable to join the brain’s remodelling of empty space into something. The empty space is not the formlessness of oneness, but not when you do not interpret it as something, there do not seem to be substantial elements hiding the formlessness of oneness.

PARTIAL DEVOTION TO THE INWARD-FACING SENSES RESULTS IN GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT
If you do not constantly focus on something specific, the outward-facing senses cannot fabricate the experiences of a world defined by time and space. Therefore, the more you defocus, the more the definable world of the outward-facing senses is complemented by the abstract world of the inward-facing senses. Thus you get glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One: light shows if you are visual-minded, ethereal music if you are auditory-minded, and flavours or feelings if you are emotional-minded.

In the article The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them, you can read how to see, hear, feel and taste glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is One.

Just welcome the glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One that comes your way. But do not try to hang onto a specific glimpse or have it repeated. And it changes into another aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One, go with that without trying to mix them.

These glimpses, as already noted, are not the Enlightenment of that which is One because it has no room for someone being conscious of something since that requires more than one. That does not mean what you believe in being is transformed by the Enlightenment of that which is One. Instead, it is dismissed as an illusion.

Practically speaking, it might be best to downplay the visual glimpses of Enlightenment in daily life. That is because you will have difficulty navigating the world of the outward-facing senses while having visions of light. But in most cases, you can safely go with glimpses of hearing, feeling or tasting the Enlightenment of that which is One.

The purpose of the inward-facing senses is to draw you into their abstract world, thus undoing the belief of being someone definitive – like a moth cannot help but follow its attraction to the flame, even though it is going to end of it.

Much devotion to the world of the inward-facing senses probably makes you spaced out in the world of the outward-facing senses. Yet, if you do not have to be present there, you can go with the flow of the inward-facing senses, as if the world outside you stands still. But suppose you have to do something demanding in the world of the outward-facing senses. In that case, it is best to mostly devote yourself to the outward-facing senses, so the abstractness of the inward-facing senses does not space you out.

NOT FOCUSING ON THE OUTWARD-FACING SENSES
As mentioned above, the more you defocus, the more the inward-facing senses take over. In the case of the Enlightenment of that which is One they do that entirely, and for having glimpses of Enlightenment, they do it partly. If you want to experience daily life in the world of the outward-fencing senses through the inward-facing senses, they are only used to the extent that you still can function as someone in the world of the outward-fencing senses. In other words, you do not have glimpses of Enlightenment, but you have an enjoyable experience of doing things in the world of the outward-fencing senses.

But you do not tone down the outward-facing senses if you want to escape them because you enhance what you try to escape psychologically. On the other hand, the more you wish to get close to reality, the more the outward-facing senses fade out because the inward-facing senses are much closer to the reality of that which is One. However, do not mistake them for reality. Instead, enjoy them taking you there.

Of course, this is a metaphor. You can never return to oneness because you never left it since that takes more than one. Therefore, you are not taken anywhere, but the belief in being somewhere is taken away, so nothing seems to hide that which is One.

You can also rely on the empty breath to sync the outward and inward-facing in the correct ratio per your present belief. See The empty breath syncs the inward and outward-facing senses.

How come it seems,that I am wearing a sun-hat?It could be that,it is the season for hats.

Nothing can stop you on Highway One because it is without distance, which is very relaxing when you do not insist on going in a specific direction. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

HIGHWAY ONE
What you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one is a creation of the brain, governed by it. You have no free will but to perceive its arrangements in your way. However, this does not mean you cannot choose to go right or left, for example. But whatever you choose, the subsequent actions are premade by the brain – just like in a computer game where every step is programmed. In other words, if you choose to have the outward and inward-facing senses synced, the brain has a plan for that, namely, to take you on a journey without distance.

Thus you are on Highway One, which has no direction, and since you are going nowhere, eventually, you realise it has always been the case. Consequently, the belief in having left that which is One is undone. In other words, you are not a puppet of the brain anymore and never were because a world where there seems to be more than one is not real, as oneness is formless, thus endless. However, since we still appear as somebody in a world with more than one, we continue within that context below.

The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The body’s healing caused by partly being devoted to the inward-facing senses is a side effect that helps you not worry about its appearance and inevitable end.

THE INWARD-FACING SENSES AND THE BODY
Devotion to the inward-facing senses will heal your body because it gives the body the peace it needs to heal itself. That may not include genetically caused diseases.

However, due to the tranquillity of the inward-facing, a genetically created condition does not generate fear. Thus it is easier to deal with (see hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues).

But suppose the body’s well-being is the purpose of devoting yourself to the inward-facing senses. Since that means you focus on something specific, you do not enter the world of the inward-facing senses, so the body is not being nurtured by it.

TOTAL DEVOTION TO THE INWARD-FACING SENSES BIDS WELCOME THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
Complete devotion to the inward-facing senses welcomes the Enlightenment of that which is One, which immediately erases all memories of you being someone. Since that means you are not there anymore and never were, nobody knows how long this takes. Besides, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not a process but one perpetual present.

But at first, it may seem to be a process, and as long as that is the case, the brain that produced your experiences as someone is still operating. Thus it can be rebooted and recreate the experience of you as someone definitive. But since it takes more than one to be anything, the reestablished experience cannot contain the Enlightenment of that which is One. So although you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One, you look the same. The only difference is that you know it is not you.

However, as soon as the Enlightenment of that which is One does not seem to be a process, the brain cannot be rebooted and, therefore, not produce the experience of you as a substantial being in a tangible world. Hence there is nothing to hide that which always has been and always will be, namely, the formlessness of oneness. There is, of course, nobody to be aware of this since it takes more than one to be conscious of something.

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.

Depending on how much you use the inward-facing senses to perceive your experiences in the world of the outward-fencing senses, you welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, its glimpses or simply have a pleasant day. The Enlightenment erases all experiences, so there is nothing to sense, not even that which is One, since it takes more than one to be aware of something. Having its glimpses, you notice the world of the outward-fencing senses, but it does not mean much to you. But just using the inward-facing senses a little, there are no glimpses of Enlightenment, and you are much aware of the world of the outward-facing senses. However, it looks friendlier, and you feel more relaxed..

IS THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE REQUIRED TO UNDO THE BELIEF IN BEING SOMEONE?
The Enlightenment of that which is One can be said to be the last step back to the formlessness of oneness. But as formlessness is endless, you have never left it. Thus it is not about going back but realise how you hide the formlessness of oneness by believing in being definitive.

As already mentioned, the Enlightenment of that which is One undoes that belief in a split second. However, this can also be achieved while enjoying the world of the outward-facing senses. In the below box, there are some suggestions on how to do this:

The more you perceive the apparent differences in the world of the outward-facing senses to not make a difference, the more the outward-facing senses function as a set-off to that which is One (hack #3.1 Inclusiveness is freedom).

The same applies to pretending to be definitive (hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation or seeing symbols of life in the world (hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of oneness).

And it also applies to being alone together, which does not mean that you are together with one or more who also are alone, but that you are alone together with your fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one, no matter how many there seem to be around you (hack #7.1 Alone together, we go home).

The empty breath (HACK #5, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss) syncs the outward-facing senses with the inward-facing ones, so you over time are able to devote yourself so much to the glimpses of Enlightenment that they do not seem separated, wherefore the Enlightenment of that which is One sets in.

You do not even need Alexius’ Duality Hacks to have the belief in being someone undone. All that is necessary is not to remember what and where you are because then the belief in being someone definitive does not appear to hide the formlessness of oneness.


Since multitasking allows you to experience both love and hate emotions simultaneously, hate is as blissful as love. Furthermore, multitasking disturbs the brain, making it harder for it to focus on something specific, thus undoing the belief in being someone definitive.

The reason that so many avoid multitasking is that it leaves them no time to suppress hate so they can uphold their perfect image of love. But since love cannot be defined without hate, their perfect love is fake. Thus they are not full of love but shit. However, not suppressing hate, your love is defined by hatred and vice versa. Therefore when you feel hate, there is also love. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

Here the world of the inner senses are about to shift to bright white light, which is gonna extract all the info you have collected in order to appear as somebody and leave it at the edge at a black hole so that there is nobody to fall into the nothingness of that which is one. This is not compatible with appearing in a world, where there seems to be more than one, so if that is what you want, you better make sure the info making up your personality is not extracted or you know where to find it again. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

This image could illustrate the last glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One before you give up being aware of something. There is no transition from having glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One and being sucked into it. And since it is one perpetual present, you do not know when it extracts all your thoughts about being someone so that nobody is sucked into a black hole, and it gracefully falls into that which One. It is incompatible with appearing as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, so if you want to continue like that, you better stop the extraction of thoughts. You can do that, for example, by fearing to disappear because it takes more than one to fear something. Thus you immediately appear as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

WHERE DO GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT COME FROM
Physically speaking, glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One seem to originate from a non-defined space behind the frequencies of thoughts near the pineal gland. It is probably also from there that you perceive the world when you are in a state of not-knowing.

The same applies when you pretend to be a person or perceive everything in the world as symbols of oneness. The empty breath – sounding like sohang – is presumably picked up from there as well, physically speaking.

Furthermore, the pineal gland might work as a receiver for signals picked up by the eighth chakra above the head. Maybe the pineal gland or the eighth chakra is involved when experiencing glimpses of Enlightenment. You cannot know because you are blown out of the experience – and afterwards, you do not know where to look. And this is fine because focusing on the pineal will not bring about any of the above. It contracts the energy, so you feel boxed in as someone definitive. On the other hand, defocusing removes restrictions wherefore, you do not feel limited to being someone specific.

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

Updated November 6, 2022

You know this pic is not how the physically world really look. It is rather a fantasy, thar is only possible due to physical life, that it therefore is a symbol of. Likewise the physical world is a symbol of life even though the physical world has nothing to do with life.

No matter how many beautiful glimpses you get of this mountain, it has nothing to do with reality. You will have to go there to see what it really looks like. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The outward-facing senses create such expressive images that we choose to believe a world where everything is separated by time and space are real. However, when the outward-facing senses are entirely turned off, there is no time and space. Hence nothing to hide that the abstractness of the inward-facing senses flows straight into an explosion coming out of a black hole or maybe into it. There is no way to know which way it is because this is the Enlightenment of that which is One, and it takes more than one to be aware of something.

Also, an explosion may not be the best word to describe it because there is nothing but empty space carrying the nothingness of you into the formlessness of oneness. Yet, this is neither correct because nothing happens. It is not necessary. You have never left oneness, as it is formless, thus endless.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Although oneness is endless, it does not last forever. On the contrary, it lasts no time because it is one perpetual present. However, this never-ending story cannot be told in a world defined by time and space. So if you want to hear it, you must leave the belief that time and space are real. However, without this belief, there is nothing specific to hear. That is why you are the story of one perpetual present.

But reading this article, you believe in being someone in a world defined by time and space in which everything, like Lego bricks, seems layered in levels of something different. Within this context, it also appears as if there are levels of turning off the outward-facing senses, thus being more or less in the world of the inward-facing senses with glimpses of Enlightenment.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Depending on the strength of the glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, it is like momentarily dying from the world of the outward-facing senses. So if you are occupied by something there, it can be disconcerting.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be seen. That is why it appears hidden as long as you look for something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In a world where there seems to be more than one, it is a basic instinct to separate oneself from reality by fabricating a make-believe world – a child, for example, prefers to believe that Christmas presents come from Santa Claus, although he does not seem very realistic. And grown-ups like to believe that being someone is real.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Here is another glimpse of the mountain from the first photo, shot from another level. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

However, these glimpses are not the Enlightenment of that which is One because there are no levels in that which is One. Nonetheless, the glimpses of Enlightenment slowly but surely undo the belief in differences, so someday you welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. And since it is timeless, it takes no time to have any leftovers of the belief in separation undone.

If you, after having bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, return to a world defined by time and space, it will be as someone definitive without the formlessness of oneness. Still, you have vague memories of it, which is enough to know there is no more than that which is One. And since it takes more than one to be aware of something, all experiences are seen as fake.

To sum up: When partially turning off the outward-facing senses, the inward-facing senses is only partly triggered, so you have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, which is an experience going on while still aware of the world of the outward-facing senses.

These glimpses can be compared to watching a movie trailer. But then again, it is not really so because both the trailer and the film are something you experience. And the Enlightenment of that which is One, bid welcome by completely turning off the inward-facing senses, cannot be experienced, as that requires more than one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Glimpses of Enlightenment, which many mistakes for the Enlightenment of that which is One, may leave you with the impression that it is possible to fuse heaven and earth, thus creating a better world. But neither dictators, rich people, political or so-called spiritual-minded persons have ever succeeded in creating a world like they think it should be.

Instead of acknowledging this, most who have had one or more glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One start teaching others how to make the world better. They put together a new philosophy based on their interpretation of one or more glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, mixed up with speculative ideas about spirituality and maybe ancient meditation traditions and whatnot.

For example, they may encourage not being conditioned so that you can be free in the present moment. But the experience of that or anything else is based on the conditioned belief that you are someone defined by time and space. However, it is not a fact, but an idea, that you blindly follow. You choose that to establish you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space instead of the formlessness of oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Mixing things may work well for you in a world defined by time and space. But not in the formlessness of oneness. Since blending something requires more than one, it is impossible to mix anything, so combining the different facets of the Enlightenment of that which is one fences it off.

That said, if you do not do the taste of life technique for the sake of the taste but for its benefits regarding defocusing, you can do this while being devoted to either seeing, hearing or feeling glimpses of Enlightenment.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

This image of the same mountain, as in the other pictures in this article, again shows that you can have many different glimpses of it and that they are all coloured by the one having the glimpses. However, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not coloured by the one experiencing. It is impossible to do that since it would require more than one. In other words, there is nothing personal about the Enlightenment of that which is One. Yet, describing it via vague memories is like everything else, where more than one seems to be involved, coloured by the personality of the describer as well as by the one interpreting it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If you perceive somebody to cheat or reject you or something else judged as unfair and acknowledge you are mistaken, you set yourself and others free from being defined. It is in your best interest to set everybody free, even though you think not everyone deserves it. Setting yourself and others free, the world of the outward-facing senses fades out. Hence the door opens to the world of the inward-facing senses, and you have glimpses of Enlightenment of that which is One.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You do not find the Enlightenment of that which is One like you find other things in a world defined by time and space. But when you do not try to find anything, there is not something to hide it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you welcome the Enlightenment of that which is one, it is like being transported in a driverless car that is programmed to take you to your favourite spot. There you carelessly forget to define the glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is one, so they merge into one bright light, tone, emotion or taste that absorbs everything definable and carries the nothingness of you back into the formlessness of oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Enlightenment and the glimpses of it are in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings described in a certain way. But elsewhere, it may be described in another way – just like two persons often describe the same cup of coffee differently.

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’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. In other words, trying to extract a specific way to the Enlightenment of that which is One or its glimpses from Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, will not help you. It is better to forget all words about it and thrust the light, sound, feeling, or taste of the Enlightenment of that which is One to do its thing when you partly are willing not to be someone definitive.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You will have no more than one glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One if you use your interpretation of this glimpse to promote yourself as someone with a vision for a better future full of love or whatever you imagine will make you appear important.

When there is no need to use glimpses of Enlightenment to save the world but rather to undo the belief in it, you are set free to be used by the glimpses. Hence they keep coming until you cannot tell them apart, wherefore there is not something definable to experience, thus nothing to hide the formless Enlightenment of that which is One.

Here is yet another glimpse of the mountain in the other photos. This image is shot on the hill while driving down. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In a dream, there is no way to prove it is unreal because there is nothing real in it. Regardless of the distances and the different persons in a dream, there are no distances and no differences. Everything in the dream plays out in the dreamer, although none of it is there or anywhere else. The same applies to what experience when awake, except that nobody experiences it.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Metaphorically the Enlightenment of that which is One is a moment that starts in a dream of something. Yet, at the same moment, the dream is over. But since you were not in the dream, nobody is awakened with a new consciousness. On the contrary, there is no awareness of you ever having been someone in a world of something. There is just one bright light – so intense that there is nothing to see and nothing to be.

The light sucks what has been stripped free of the belief in something through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness. That is, if there are no leftovers of the belief in something. In that case, you think the Enlightenment of that which is One is something, thus getting back into the world of something.

Therefore, those who talk about their exciting experiences of Enlightenment have not, as nothing, been sucked through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness. They held onto their belief in something to fence off the Enlightenment of that which is One and instead have glimpses of it. They can be experienced as something you see, hear, feel or taste. However, since it requires more than one to experience something, the glimpses are not the Enlightenment of that which is One.

For someone who is fed up with the experience of something, it is frustrating only to have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. But for those who love to experience something, it is perfect because the glimpses can be used to pump up lecturing or writing books about the experience of a vast empty space full of pure love, consciousness, bliss, or something else, that makes them appear to have something better than others. Having something, though, has nothing to do with the Enlightenment of that which is One because it takes more than one to have something.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Someone compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One never asks, »who am I?«because there is no more than that which is One, thus not a world where there seems to be more than one. Consequently, someone compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One has no need for communities, discussions, so-called interesting exchanges or dialogues, sending love or anything else to make it appear as if there is more than one.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

There are no degrees of the Enlightenment of that which is One. It cannot be smaller or bigger because oneness is formless. However, in a world where there seems to be more than one, there are degrees of everything. That is why you can experience glimpses of Enlightenment on many levels depending on how much the outward-facing senses are turned off. But no matter the level, no glimpse comes close to the Enlightenment of that which is One because there are no levels in oneness.NOTE: This article is part of hack #6.2 The inward and outward-facing senses, the Enlightenment and its glimpses.

‘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. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

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.*

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

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 graphic is grabbed from the web.

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.

APPENDIX
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.

Are there degrees of Enlightenment?

Updated November 2, 2022

Enlightenment can also be felt and heard in several degrees. AUM can open your inner ear.

The Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced, but glimpses of it can when you partly turn off of the world of the outward-facing senses. It happens in degrees depending on how much you shut off the world of the outward-facing senses. Read more about that here. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The answer to the question in the headline is both yes and no. Before elaborating on this, please remember that if two people drink the same cup of tea, they most likely describe it differently. Maybe one of them talks about it in an ecstatic way and the other in a very down-to-earth way. Still, it is the same tea, so – in the context of this metaphor – please focus on the tea and not the description when you read below.

In the Enlightenment of that which is One, everything happens simultaneously. Thus there are no specific elements available to combine into something understandable. Nor is there anybody to be aware of that or anything at all. Consequently, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not an experience or a state of mind. It is that which is One, and there are no degrees of that since it requires more than one. It is not to say how long it lasts because it is one perpetual present.

Returning from the Enlightenment of that which is One to a world where there seems to be more than one, you again appear to be the same as before, except that you do not believe in being that. It is a pretence. But whether you believe or pretend to be someone requires more than one. Thus the Enlightenment of that which is One appears hidden. You can compare this to activating an app on your computer or smart media. When you do that, the desktop – although still there – is hidden until you turn off the app.

Alexius is like every other person in the world not perfect. But unlike most others he knows, it is not possible to be perfect, because that requires more than one and there is no more than that which is One.

Alexius was 22 years old when the belief in being someone definitive momentarily turned off for the first time. He did not know about the Enlightenment of that which is One from books or anywhere else, and he did not consider himself to have – what the purist may call – a pure mind or body. He probably still does not have that because the Enlightenment of that which is One does not change anything. There is no more than that which is One, so there is not something to change. That is the revelation of Enlightenment – and there are no degrees in that.

Balance is a concept invented, so that you can always feel out of balance and therefore constantly is occupied trying to get it. Being on a mission like that, you do not have time to see that there is no balance in an illusion – neither btw in that which is real. Reality is one and it takes two to have a balance.

Balance is a concept invented, so that you can always feel out of balance. Therefore, since you are constantly occupied by getting it right, you do not have time to see that balance is as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Spiritual wannabe’s often think they will become spritual when they have achieved the right balance, thus being in higher consciousness. But since spirituality is that which is One and it takes more than one to be in balance or conscious of something, it is not spiritual they get but numbness. If instead they acknowledged, that they do not know what and where they are, the Enlightenment of that which is One comes so fast, that the the brain has no time to distinguish anything. Therefore, since concepts fall apart, nothing seems to hide reality is that which is One.

Alexius has no answer to questions like how come he bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One or how come he returned to the world again. All he can say is that he is writing Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings in a world that seems full of degrees. So yes, in such a world, you can experience degrees of Enlightenment. However, they are not the Enlightenment of that which is One, but glimpses of it.

When Alexius was a child, he could not see the fully decorated Christmas tree before Christmas Eve. But he took some sneak peeks through the door’s keyhole and was amazed by the light he saw. Those sneak peeks can be compared to glimpses of Enlightenment. You are still in your ordinary world, from where you have glimpses of something very different.

In the context of this metaphor, it is not only the beautiful light you experience looking through the keyhole, you can also hear all the glitter move on the green leaves. And if you are more audio than visual-minded, these sounds might be more appealing than the light.

Apart from the visual and audiovisual aspects of the Enlightenment of that which is One, there are also aspects of feeling and tasting it. However, you do not need to follow all the elements into the non-degree version of the Enlightenment of that which is One to erase what seems to hide oneness. It is enough to follow one of the aspects into oneness. Since it is one perpetual present, the way takes no time nor going back to a world where there seems to be more than one. However, since everything in such a world is divided into more than one, you cannot bring back oneness. Nevertheless, you may have vague memories of non-separation. Thus you are someone compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One. 

Glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One is experienced through the inward-facing senses when the outward ones are partly closed. And just like you can experience something in the world of the outward-fencing senses in various degrees, you can get all manner of glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, you only have one aspect at a time. The most common one is the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One. But whether you see, hear, feel or taste the glimpses, they remain in your consciousness to remind you there is no more than that which is One. All of them come to Alexius regularly, but during the day, it is primarily the emotional experience of hearing and feeling the sound that Aum or Sohang symbolises. See The ins and outs of the inward-facing senses.

It sounds and feels like the vibrations from an enormous vacuum cleaner or the ventilation plant in an airport. Alexius has met people who have heard this humming when meditating but disregarded it as a sound coming from their neighbour’s vacuum cleaner. People spend so much time repeating Aum or Sohang, expecting something mysterious to happen when all they have to do is repeat it a few times to get in tune with the humming. Read here how to do that.

The word Aum or Sohang can be compared to the control knob on an analogue radio that you use to fine-tune what you want to hear. When you have that, you do not need the control knob – or in this case, the word Aum or Sohang to listen to the echo of oneness. If you hear or feel this humming while still aware of the world, you have a glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One. Its intensity depends on how much you are unaware of a world where there seems to be more than one.

All degrees of Enlightenment are experiences, and any experience is part of the illusion of a world where there seems to be more than one. However, these degrees of Enlightenment appear to bring you closer to the beginning of the world – just after the big bang – which is often experienced as a paradise full of ecstasy and bliss. Yet, like all other experiences, they also have an end. So does this part of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings.

There is no conclusion to the above, and if you do not try to make one, there may be a glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One heading your way. Read here how to speed it up.

The after-effect of ‘a state of not-knowing’ [under construction]

Updated October 29, 2022

The after-effect of a state of not-knowing is a certainty that the thoughts needed for being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one automatically are produced by the brain. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

This article is a continuation of A state of not-knowing, how to get there.

THE AFTER-EFFECT OF A STATE OF NOT-KNOWING:
If you do not want to end the experience of being somebody, you need to leave a state of not-knowing after 20 minutes, 45 at most – otherwise, there is not somebody to repeatedly confirm that the experiences fabricated by the brain are something. Therefore, since they are exposed as nothing, there does not appear to be something keeping the brain together, wherefore it falls into a coma.

Since the slate has been wiped clean in a state of not-knowing, you come back to the conscious experience of being someone without the desire to be independent, thus free to follow the brain’s script. See hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy. That feels like you start from the ground up, moving very slowly with no other purpose than to fine-tune the body as a tool for the experience of a tangible world. That is not done systemically with coordinated movement, breathing, and meditation.

However, since most seekers look for something they can mimic to appear spiritual, they assume they magically enter a higher state by imitating these slow movements in a focused mode via Tai Chi or Qigong. A state of not-knowing, though, does not arise from focusing but from defocusing. That said, it can also occur from being deeply involved in something, as long as it is not done per a particular philosophy or to escape the present.

Returning with the slate wiped clean from a state of not-knowing to the experience of being someone, the relationships you used to stand by may seem dull, as you do not need to exploit others when not conditined to be unique.

As long as the after-effect of a state of not-knowing lasts, which can be from a few seconds to several years, you rely on the brain to produce experiences of being someone in a tangible world – just like you depend on it to compose a dream. Going along with the experiences as the brain makes them, and not as you think they should be, feels like sleepwalking. It is effortless unless you insist on doing things your way, which is very stressful. But fortunately, uncontrolled stress ignites a take-off into the empty breath and the bliss of nothing, from where you return with a clean slate, thus having an effortless life as someone in the brain’s fantasy of a tangible world.

You probably go back and forth between the consciousness of being someone and a state of not-knowing many times before you forget to return but welcome the enlightenment of that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Each time you return from a state of not-knowing to the belief in being someone, thus have forgotten the bliss of nothing, the empty breath remembers it for you. And like it syncs being nobody with being somebody, so you can move around in nothing as if it is something when in a state of not-knowing, it also does that when you return to the consciousness of being someone. But, of course, the ratio is different in the after-effect of a state of not-knowing.

In a state of not-knowing, there is so little consciousness of being somebody that there is nobody to perceive the different experiences to make a difference. That is why you are in the bliss of nothing. But in the after-effect, the empty breath syncs the bliss of nothing with the conscious experience of something, so the nothingness is forgotten when you need to be aware of driving a car, for example. In other words, in a state of not-knowing, you are mainly nobody and, in the after-effect, somebody.

Be aware that there is no will to perceive anything in a particular way in a state of not-knowing. And the transition from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone is not noticed because there is not somebody to be aware of having been in a state of not-knowing. Nor do you not know that the bliss of nothing has wiped the slate clean, so your perceptions automatically are generated in sync with the brain’s script (see hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to feel happy). However, you notice you are in the duality flow (see hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality) because you have no need to uphold a specific interpretation of something.

But suppose the satisfaction this entails feels too basic compared with the vague memories of bliss that eventually pop up from nowhere. In that case, you may insist on a specific interpretation of the memories that seem to extend the bliss. Therefore, since you appear to be able to integrate the bliss of nothing into the world of something and since the world wants to be fooled, they are impressed. But not you because what you did is like adding a zero to a number, so nothing has changed.

Thoughts and feelings may seem distant in a state of not-knowing, but when you return to the consciousness of being someone definitive, they are very close. However, since they are no longer perceived as something but nothing, you enjoy the intimacy of nothing in whatever shape it appears to take. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In short, those insisting on free will, see the brain as a slave driver, so they they reject its game of something. And when they fail to make it better, they blame the brain. But those not trying to change something because they remember from a state of not-knowing that it is nothing, they have fun appearing as someone.

That does not necessarily mean it always is like that. Your conditioned way of reacting to something may be so deeply rooted that you return to a familiar response pattern. But, no worries, a quick visit to a state of not-knowing, and you start over again with a clean slate in the brain’s fantasy world of something.

Sooner or later, you feel so entertained by this fantasy that you forget to remember being someone. Thus there does not appear to be something hiding the formlessness of oneness.

APPENDIX:
To be in sync with the script of the brain does not mean you have to like it but that you have to relate to it and not as you think it should be per a particular philosophy. In other words, whether you respond with anger or joy to the brain’s script, you are in a dialogue with the brain, thus feeling its love.

But if you reject the brain’s script by responding to a story believed superior, such as socialism, you are not communicating with the brain but your fable about a better world. Hence you do not feel the brain’s love for you but are always looking for something better.

Having a perception in sync with the brain’s script is very easy. If you do not try to make a perception of your reaction to it, the brain does it automatically. Therefore, since you are in sync, you feel its love.

‘A state of not-knowing,’ how to get there

Updated November 16, 2022

Everything believed to be a fact is made of the brain. It is, for example, not a fact that you see this picture now. It has taken the brain one second to fabricate this experience. Hence what you believe in seeing, you saw in the past. And then again, there was no picture one second ago. It is a fantasy of the brain made from nothing to make it look like you are something. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

TWISTING EMPTINESS INTO SOMETHING EXCITING
The brain claims the experiences it produces are
founded on information from your sensory system. You gladly accept this because otherwise, it is evident your experiences are a fantasy fabricated by the brain, wherefore nothing you see consists of tangible elements but intangible thoughts. See, Eyes do not see.

You may have noticed that even with your eyes closed, the brain can produce vivid images that look like the world you see with open eyes. And it does not require you to be sexually stimulated by something in the physical world to produce an orgasm while you are dreaming. The substantiality of what and where you believe in being is a fantasy synthesised by the brain from nothing. For example, after watching several movies in a row, the brain pieces their different work of fiction into one continuous story that feels so compelling that you forget it is fantasy.

That is because whether experiences are perceived as yours or others, real or imagined, authentic or fake, fabrication or factual, physical or spiritual, they are processed by the brain in one higgledy-piggledy by the same organ. It views everything it processes as a construction of thoughts that needs to be shaped into something so engaging that you do not notice it is a fantasy created from nothing. Nor does the brain want you to see that it is as immaterial as the experiences it produces to appear as something by making you believe they establish you as someone substantial in a tangible world.

Since any experience of something has taken the brain one second to form from nothingh (read more about that here), you can undo it by going back one second second, thus entering the bliss of nothing.

Those who want to be in a merry-go-round world may first like to read about the bliss of a state of not-knowing. But when they realise the bliss comes from not believing to be someone definitive, they avoid a state of not knowing by making sure to perform as somebody definitive – for example, saying, »I need time to process it.«Photo © Alexius Jorgensen

A STATE OF NOT-KNOWING
Since every experience you know has taken the brain one second to manufacture, the origin of what you believe to experience right now is one second away (read more about that here). Therefore, if you go back one second from your present experience, you return to the nothingness the brain twisted into something you perceive to happen now.

However, your freedom from something may feel claustrophobic because you have nowhere to hide your emotions. Fortunately, this exposes them as nothing. Thus you enter a state of not-knowing. Since this is like falling into an unsubstantial body, you neither feel physical nor integrated with higher frequencies. Hence there is no need to label anything.

However, the brain goes on like before, producing experiences of something. But since what you believed in being cannot be recalled in a state of not-knowing, there is nobody to perceive the different experiences to make a difference. That is why you are in the bliss of nothing, thus nowhere, because the brain has not rendered it into something. There is nobody to be aware of this until you return to the conscious experience of being someone definitive, and vague memories pop up.

In other words, everything said in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings about a state of not-knowing is based on Alexius’ memories. And though a state of not-knowing is impersonal, memories are personal, so Alexius’ memories may differ from yours – like two persons drinking the same tea may often remember it differently, although the tea is the same.

The brain feels it has failed when you do not make its fiction of something appear real by continuously sharing your reaction to it with someone, internally or externally. Therefore, if you have not verified the brain’s fabrication of nothing as something for 20 minutes, 45 at most, it gives up producing more experiences of you as someone. Hence you cannot return to the consciousness of being someone in a world of something, nor can you continue in the bliss of nothing since the fantasy about being someone is over.

In a state of not-knowing, your eyes may be closed or open. Perhaps you sit in a bus or a park, walk down a noisy street, talk a lot or are silent. Everything is normal, and thoughts go on as usual since what and where you appear to be is a construction of thoughts. There is one difference, though. Before, thoughts were perceived as something, and now as nothing. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But most likely, you leave a state of not-knowing a long time before the brain falls into a coma. And since you are returning to the consciousness of being someone definitive with a clean slate, you automatically serve the brain, thus everybody, because the brain has no personal preferences. Read more about the after-effect of a state of not-knowing in the following article.

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one, does there appear to be levels, so if you experience to be advancing through levels, the belief that there is more than that which is not being undone but enhanced.

Therefore, since this feels very satisfying, you do not need something specific but happily go with the duality flow (hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality) or take a break from duality into the bliss of nothing until the belief in being someone is undone.

The willingness to have that done is often initiated by admitting you are not willing to recognise what you believe in being is nothing. By acknowledging this, you agree that what you appear to be is make-believe and, therefore, not real. About willingness, see Willingness not to exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

You cannot bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One when you want to exist because it takes more than one to be alive. This does not mean you need to die. That alo calls for more than one.

Having glimpses of Enlightenment, you stick to one aspect of it at a time. So if you feel it, you do not try to see it. Yet, if visions of it start to take over, you go with that. Suppose you do not try to divide your vision into different shapes. In that case, you will not see patterns and colours in the visual glimpses of Enlightenment but one bright light.

GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT IN A STATE OF NOT-KNOWING:
In a state of not-knowing, you may have glimpses of Enlightenment. But they are not the Enlightenment of that which is One – just like a movie trailer is not the movie but glimpses of it.

The Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced because it requires more than one to be aware of something. But you can see, hear, feel or taste glimpses of it. The glimpses are experienced with the inward-facing senses, so they do not blend in with the world of the outward-facing senses. Read more about that here.

In other words, the visual glimpses of Enlightenment do not lighten up a room. On the contrary, it makes it impossible to see it. And even though the ethereal harmonies are the most subtle polyphony of bell-like sounds, they do not mix with church bells or any other mundane sound. That is why you better block out glimpses of Enlightenment when driving a car or doing something else that calls for your focus in the world of the outward-facing senses.

Since we are used to perceiving experiences as they come from outside, we perceive glimpses of Enlightenment to come from inside or another world. But this is not so. Instead, glimpses of Enlightenment come from a gap in nothing, almost unprocessed by the brain. The experiences perceived to be outside of us also come from nothing. However, they are heavily processed by the brain, so they appear as something.

Anyway, if you remain in a state of not-knowing for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, or forget to perceive the splashes of light in different shapes and colours or to differentiate the ethereal harmonies from each other, the glimpses of light or sound fuse into one light or sound. That is the Enlightenment of that which is One. It does not alter or transform anything, as that requires more than one. Instead, it wipes out everything that calls for more than one. Hence there is nobody to be aware that you graciously keep falling until emptied by oneness and thus nothing but that. The same applies if feeling or tasting glimpses of Enlightenment fuse into one feeling or taste. Read more about that in hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One.

Leaving a state of not-knowing before the Enlightenment of that which is One set in, you return to the fantasy of being someone in the world of the outward-facing senses with a clean slate, which you can read about in the following article.

Whether your eyes are open or closed, you can apply one or more of Alexius’ duality hacks wherever you are. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

HOW TO ENTER A STATE OF NOT-KNOWING:
Any duality hack, except the Enlightenment of that which is One, will eventually take you back one second to the emptiness from where the brain twists nothing into something. Thus you are no longer in the frustration of something but in the bliss of nothing. Above we have already talked about how to get there. Here are more ways.

When you feel speedy and restless, you use its uncontrolled energy to ignite a take-off to the empty breath (see hack #5.1 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing). But if you feel tired, pretending to be that is perhaps the better choice of a hack because what you pretend to be is not you (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation).

If you tend to justify everything unpleasant with the world, perceiving everything as symbols of oneness could be the hack to apply. In this case, Alone together is also a good hack. Read more about these hacks in hack #2.1 Everything experienced is a symbol of oneness, and in hack #7 Alone together is the key to that which is One

Please be aware that the purpose of Alexius’ Duality Hacks is not to heal the body but the sick belief that you are in it. That said, the more this unhealthy belief is healed, the more the body is set free from your dominance. Hence the biological system is not blocked from repairing the body. Sometimes it may be helpful to kickstart this with nootropics for boosting the brain, Blackroll for relaxing the muscles, weightlifting for toning them and far-infrared heating pads for a deep bodily relaxation. Read more about setting the body free from your dominance in hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

If you try to return to a state of not-knowing by replicating the last one, you will not enter it because what you intend to replicate is memories, and contrary to a state of not-knowing they are perceived as something. If you use second-hand knowledge of how to get bliss, you become the special self, and since it is very serious about realising itself and a state of not-knowing is selfless, you will not enter it.

Getting into a state of not-knowing is as easy as told, but since we all are in the habit of looking for a solution in the experiences we perceive as something, we may get lost in them, thus feeling hopeless. No worries, there is so much energy in hopelessness that unedited it will ignite a take-off into the empty breath.

EPILOGUE:
The experience of you as someone in a tangible world only can only be exposed as a hallucination if you are willing to have the belief in being someone undone. Having that willingness, the undoing occurs when you keep reading Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings. Do not expect them to save you or give you something because it takes more than one to do so, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. But as they, therefore, do not result in something but nothing, they automatically hack the belief in being something.

Hack #6.1 From the inward-facing senses through a black hole into that which is One does that once and all. The others hacks do it over time. They help you not to be special but basic, so you do not look for something extraordinary, thus having fun believing you are someone while having that belief undone.
