The idea of duality was undone when it was perceived

Updated April 26, 2022

Life is everything alive. This is why it does not contain anything that ends, and what you believe in being, therefore, is not of life but nothing. Fortunately, Alexius’ Duality Hacks uncovers that. Hence nothing does not seem to be something hiding, there never was or will be anything but life since it is formless, thus endless. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A world of duality has indeed been explored by non-duality. It started with a big bang from where time was projected forward linearly. However, there was no going back to the same in a world of duality. For example, if ice cubes melt in water, they cannot be extracted from it and made into the same cubes again. And the light radiating from a bulb or the sun only goes forward. It never returns.

But in non-duality, it is impossible to go forward without going backwards simultaneously. It has to be one movement to remain one perpetual present, thus securing that nothing is lost. Therefore, duality was seen as unreal and discarded at the exact moment it moved forward without going backwards. However, parts of non-duality were very excited by the concept of linear time as that gave them something to hope for. Thus they decided to continue the cancelled adventure of duality.

They did that by making a fansite where followers could participate in ongoing stories of duality – just like, in the context of the world, a fan site of a cancelled TV show fabricates follow-up stories that supporters participate in and discuss. If they think the stories are real, linear time seems dangerous. But if you know everything happens simultaneously (see What time is!?), it is fun pretending to be in a world with past and future because where you pretend to be, you are not. Hence linear time is not scary (see hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation).

Of course, this article is not factual. It is part of duality, which is fantasy, thus the reason people want stories. However, not this one because it exposes they are nothing.

That said, non-duality does not consist of parts that differ from each other. Therefore, since nobody can investigate duality or go on fantasising about it, the above is a metaphor. But in its context, duality was deemed unreal the moment it was perceived, thus instantly aborted. However, afterimages of this moment repeatedly played in an interactive movie in cyberspace, seem to extend the cancelled show of duality.

Inclusiveness is a journey without distance to that which is endless, namely non-duality

Updated March 23, 2022

Those gathering in groups of nationalism, capitalism, socialism or another ism manifests their specific group by excluding everything, not in line with its principles.

First, they divide the world into right and wrong. Second, they eliminate everything judged wrong by projecting it onto other groups. Third, since the other groups, therefore, seem evil, they start to fight them.

When the fight is over, the winning group claims to be the good ones. »By doing the right thing, we have established we are the best,« they say. But they only seem to be better because they have projected the worst in themselves onto the losing groups.

Fortunately, Alexius’ Duality Hacks is not a new doctrine where you have to change or get rid of something to become better. On the contrary, there is no goal but to undo the belief in separation because, without it, there is nobody to change.

A journey without distance to that which is all-inclusive
When Henry Ford invented a faster vehicle than a horse-driving carriage, it was not just an improvement of the old type of transportation. Instead, he surpassed it and developed a new and much faster vehicle.

Likewise, Alexius’ Duality Hacks is not an update of ancient meditation methods, added soothing sounds, shaman sticks and whatnot. The hacks are built from scratch, founded on the haste of modern-day life, so you rapidly enter a state of not knowing and its bliss of nothing. On the other hand, meditation progresses at the pace of a horse-driving carriage, as it is based on the idea that you must exclude something to get better. Therefore, since there is always more to get rid of, you keep separating, thus never reaching wholeness.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks are about undoing the belief in separation by including the opposing parts in the contrasts making up the world of duality, such as the past and the future or good and evil. This does not require restraint, concentration, realisation or perfection.

But Alexius’ Duality Hacks is based on inclusiveness. This does not require sitting in a specific position with eyes closed or being with special people in unique surroundings. Instead, you include whatever you experience wherever you are. You cannot go wrong, not even if you forget being inclusive, because if so, you include your imperfection. Hence you are at full speed on a journey with no distance to that which is all-inclusive, namely non-duality since it is formless, thus endless.

You do not get to live in the now by excluding the past and the future because life is inclusive. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When inclusive, a problem contains the solution
Being Inclusive starts by acknowledging separation – otherwise, there is nothing to include. For example, to experience something as specifically good, you must separate it from its opposite, bad – just like you exclude the white background that contrasts these black letters from your awareness to focus on reading the article.

If you begin to include these letters, they start to blur. Eventually, there is not anything specific to see, wherefore there does not appear to be something hiding the formlessness of oneness.

Next, you include what you excluded. In the context of reading this article, you fully bring back the white background into your awareness. This makes it impossible to focus on the black letters, wherefore there is no article to read. In other words, by including the excluded, the two sides of a polarity cancel out each other. Therefore, since there is nothing specific to experience, thus nothing to make the experiencer definitive, the belief in separation falls apart.

By the way, you do not have to be aware of both sides in the polarities to include them. Instead, you include the part you are conscious about. This automatically incorporates its counterpart because everything comes in pairs in a world of duality, like two sides of a coin. See also hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

In other words, when one side of a coin is included, there is nothing to define the other side. Hence the sides do not appear separated but partners putting together a coin experience. Regarding feelings, if you include pain, for example, it is revealed to be in an alliance with its counterpart relief. Hence your problem contains the solution.

Another way to put it, nothing can be experienced without its contrast. Therefore, if you devote yourself so much to a problem that there is nothing but that, there is not something to define it. Consequently, there is no problem causing suffering.

This is not the way to realise non-duality. It cannot be known because it takes more than one to become aware of something. But it is a way to see that there is no more than that which is One. This you realise when you are fully inclusive. But you probably start little by little. No worries. As already said, inclusiveness is a journey without distance.

When you know nothing, there is not something to hide the formlessness of oneness

Updated March 23, 2022

Since it takes more than one to lose something, and reality is that which is One, you cannot lose something that is real. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks are a fable. Nothing about non-duality is true because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to describe something. For the same reason, there is no duality. In other words, there is nothing but oneness since it is formless and therefore endless. However, since formlessness cannot be defined, this is also a fable.

Therefore, since Alexius’ Duality Hacks is nothing, applying them, the belief in being something is eventually washed out. Hence no appearances seem to hide, there never was or will be more than the formlessness of oneness.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks applies themselves when you keep reading them.

 

It is nothing but robots trying to fool you into believing you are not a robot

Updated April 26, 2022

Nobody knows if you are a dog or even exist on the internet. The graphic is a Peter Steiner cartoon, initially published in The New Yorker.

You can compare a world where there seems to be more than one to an online world with nothing but robots. It might sound potentially interesting to communicate with them. Unfortunately, the robots try to persuade you into believing their world is real and they are alive. However, there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless, so if you believe the robots, you want to be and have more than that which is One.

The moment you do not want that, there is no need to believe the apparent differences in the robots’ world make a difference. Thus they cannot define you as someone, wherefore there is nobody to hide, there is no more than that which is One.

This is not to suggest that you should stop the desire for more. On the contrary, it would imply it is possible to be and have more than that which is not one. But if you do not try to do something in particular, you neither avoid nor go for more. That is what Alexius’ Duality Hacks bring about.

If you believe that you experience non-duality, you uphold the belief it is possible to be and have more than that which is One

Often the excitement of daily life in a world of duality does not seem to be enough. Hence it is enhanced with memorable holidays or remarkable peak experiences at courses and seminars – or perhaps totally replaced by computer games or virtual reality glasses. This replicates the making of duality: the everlasting peace of non-duality was judged as bland and replaced by a fantasy of excitement in a world of duality. See hack #2.2 Peace of non-duality versus the excitement of duality. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When used to the taste of Thai sauces reinforced with a flavour enhancer like MSG (see Wikipedia about MSG), the natural ones may seem tasteless. For example, a reviewer of a Thai sauce without a flavour enhancer complained that it did not taste like the real thing.

In reality, it is the other way around. The sauce with a flavour enhancement is fake, and the sauce without it is authentic. Likewise, the everlasting peace of non-duality is true. And the exciting experiences of duality are bogus because they never last.

But if you believe to be someone in a world of duality – and you do because otherwise, you would not be able to read this – you are more fascinated by the fleeting flavour of adventures than the constant taste of peace.

You live in a fantasy world if you believe to experience non-duality because it takes more than one to be aware of something and non-duality is that which is One.

No worries. It is not a problem that you fancy the flavour enhancer which seems to multiply oneness into a world where there seems to be more than one. See From non-duality to duality and back. Unlike food, which you, in the context of such a world, can jazz up with flavour enhancers, you cannot alter oneness because it requires more than one to make a change. Consequently, oneness can only be modified in a fantasy where there seems to be more than one.

Since there there is no more than that which is One, it only takes one to undo the fantasy of a world where there seems to be more than one.

However, no matter the number of appearances in such an imagination, in reality, there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless. That is why there is nothing to realise in a world where there seems to be more than one other than it is make-believe. This is uncovered all by itself because everything imagined has an end. If you cannot wait for the fantasy to finish, apply one or more of Alexius´ Duality Hacks. They undo the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, while you have fun appearing to be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

This is not to say, Alexius’ Duality Hacks are more genuine than anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one. They are just as fake as everything else that calls for more than one. But since they do not claim to make a difference, they do not enhance the belief in separation. Thus, eventually, there does not appear to be more than that which is One.

Since it takes more than one to exist, and there is nothing but oneness, existence is unreal

Talking about the egoic mind and transforming the ego is just another sophisticated way of establishing the belief in being someone definitive, thus fending off the formlessness of oneness. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A common way to prove you exist is to pinch the arm and conclude you are alive because it hurts. However, this experience of physical pain is constructed by the brain, and if you are unreal, so is the brain. Consequently, the experience proves nothing but that you want to believe you are real. However, reality is not something that can be acknowledged. It is that which is One, and since it takes more than one to have a shape, it is formless and therefore endless. Hence there is nothing but the formlessness of oneness.

Fortunately, Alexius’ Duality Hacks undo the belief in being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The belief in being someone is bananas

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 and therefore 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 and therefore 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, it is possible to be and have more than that which is One, Alexius’ Duality Hacks undo that belief.

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

Updated March 23, 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 life. 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 #3.2 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 and therefore endless, so there is no more than that which is One.

Fake news

Updated March 23, 2022

Everything considered to be a fact is made up by the brain. It is, for example, not a fact that you are reading this. It is something the brain tells you. But it does not share your perceived difference between real or imaginary, physicality or spirituality and what is perceived to be the experiences of you or others, a dream or a movie. The brain knows that any venture is an illusion because it is a construction of thoughts made of nothing – including the experience of the brain. And as the only purpose of this is to entertain, all kinds of experiences are fabricated by the brain in one higgledy-piggledy by the same organ. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

All news is fake because it takes more than one to make them, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless and therefore endless.

If you conclude that this must include Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, you are right. But being right, you are also fake because it takes more than one to be anything.

No worries. The purpose of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is to undo the belief that someone has a conscious experience of reading them. Hence, there is no awareness to hide that which cannot be realised, namely that which is One, as it takes more than one to be conscious of it.

Continuously reading Alexius’ Duality Hacks without trying to learn something, they apply themselves.

All you need to do is keep reading Alexius’ Duality Hacks until you do not know what and where you are. As this is so blissful, that there is no more to ask for, believing it is possible to be and have more than that which is One is wiped out.

In a world where there seems to be more than one, consistency is a fabrication

Going back to that which is you can be compared to a trip to the top of a mountain, where Alexius’ Duality Hacks is like an aerial cableway helping you to get to the top. However, the aerial cableway is not able to take you all the way, so at a certain point, you must leave it behind and continue on your own.

When high and low, past and future, giving and receiving, within and without is the same the ego is crucified. Read the coming theme The crucifixion of the ego

When high and low, past and future, giving and receiving or within and without is the same the concept of separation is undone. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The  final stretch to that which is One may seem cold and lonely. Any kind of luggage, whether it appears to be so-called spiritual, emotional or mental, must be left behind, so there is not something to support you, as that requires more than one.

What you do not leave by yourself will appear to be taken from you, until the ego, that in this context is the name for anything that seems separated, is crucified, so there does not appear to be something hiding there never was or will be nothing but the formlessness of oneness.

The way to leave everything behind is not to exclude specific thoughts and feelings but include them as they are. Exclusion of thoughts and feelings is the way to become something, whereas inclusion is to not become anything at all, because without anything excluded there is nothing to define you – and only as nothing can you bid welcome the formlessness of that which is you.

Besides, when everything is included you cannot feel alone. Neither do you need any help, as you have everything.

In other words, when Alexius’ Duality Hacks have served their purpose, you leave them behind so you can continue on your own. To hold onto them or anything else is like trying to put the aerial cableway in your rucksack when you continue on your own.

In the reality of that which is One, it is not possible to fabricate anything, as that requires more than one. In other words, consistency is a fabrication.

In the above metaphor, not all the qualities of an aerial cableway can literally be transferred to Alexius’ Duality Hacks. An aerial cableway needs to function consistently, and Alexius’ Duality Hacks has no such need. There is no consistent way to undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, as consistency is a fabrication based on excluding the formlessness of that which is One. Also, the whole way and the last stop of an aerial cableway is mapped out, but Alexius’ Duality Hacks has no specific way scheduled for you to follow. You just go with the flow.

Whenever you seem to see more than one or see anything at all, you are hallucinating, because it takes more than one to see something and you are that which is one.

Whenever you seem to experience more than one, you are hallucinating. It takes more than one to see something and that which is you is that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Alexius is not supposed to be followed. He is just a messenger, whose function is to render himself superfluous, so that you can go with the flow of the message until you see, it is your belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, that hides the formless oneness of that which is you. Undoing this belief, you are on your own, as you always have been and always will be, because there is no more than that which is One.

Suppose you, after reading this hack and the previous hack #4 A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss feel connected with the indifference of the empty breath and have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. In that case, you may have arrived at the last stop of Alexius’ aerial cableway. Hence this could be your last article.

But if it feels as you still have some way to go in his aerial cableway of undoing the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are most welcome to go on reading Alexius’ Duality Hacks.

If you think this hack has made you wiser about the enlightenment of that which is One and how to get it, you have used the hack to enhance the belief in being someone definitive instead of undoing it. The animation is grabbed from the web.

EPILOGUE:
Alexius’ Duality Hacks present no facts or ideas that will add up to a higher meaning or purpose of your appearance as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither do they present any hope for such a person or the world to get better.

They point to that which is One – and as it takes more than one to hope for something, have a purpose, be meaningful or better, they are not about that, but undoing the belief in anything that requires more than one.

But since it also takes more than one to point to something, Alexius’ Duality Hacks are not the truth but as illusionary as anything else in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Their use of this illusion, however, is not to make you appear more special, but to undo the belief that you are someone at all, so there is no belief to hide that which is you is no different from the formlessness of that which is One and, as formlessness is endless, therefore everything.

The ins and outs of the inward-facing senses

Updated May 22, 2022

There is no structure in the empty breath like there is in the world of the outward-facing senses, where everything is organised into contrast, so it seems that the world is divided into right and wrong. As it requires much effort to uphold the judgments of good and evil continuously, it is much more fun to let the empty breath take over and guide you back and forth in the worlds of the outer and inward-facing senses so that the relaxation you get from not being able to divide the abstract world of the inward-facing senses into contrasts of good and bad becomes the foundation for perceiving the apparent differences in the world of the outward-facing senses not to make a difference. The animation is grabbed from the web.

It may seem frightening to not give your full attention to the structured world of the outward-facing senses and instead go with the unstructured flow of the empty breath. However, this fear is unfounded because, without the constant control needed to keep the world of the outward-facing senses organised in the way you expect to experience it, you have a laid-back life there when guided by the empty breath.

To keep up the appearance of being someone specific you must always be vigilant towards what others think. Yet you do not know, what they think. It is something you think, they think. In other words, it is nobody else than yourself, that you are up against.

It will guide you back and forth between the outward and inward-facing senses so that the relaxation you get from the world of the inward-facing senses, which, contrary to the outward-facing senses, is not based on control, will be the basis of how the world of the outward-facing senses is experienced.

The empty breath can be felt within the non-definitive borders of a ball, with the lower part passing through the abdomen or the stomach and the upper part of the head or above it. The swing of the empty breath, which perhaps is the most common aspect, is shaped like a curved yin yang line – but less curved and not with a definitive form – within this borderless ball. It is felt inside the body, swinging from the back to the front of it or up and down, but it can also be felt swinging from side to side and everywhere in between these directions.

Sensing all directions simultaneously is like feeling no swing at all – as if the world stands still. It is mainly the swing from the back to the front of the body that is felt, maybe combined with the up/downswing. The swing can be felt in the abdomen, stomach or chest or all those places at once.

Gabby

The empty breath can be felt in many ways, among others, like if you are riding on two big yin-yangs like waves but without the holes in alignment with the rhythm of the breath. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The swing of the empty breath is powered by high-speed and chaotic energy sensed both inside and outside the body within the non-definitive borders of the ball that make up the empty breath, as if it is going here, there and everywhere without going anywhere. It feels like you are a transparent fountain of joy. And going around the non-definitive border of the ball feels like surfing two waves formed like the two parts of a yin-yang sign (with no dots in it). In general, you just feel one of the aspects of the empty breath at a time. But you may also feel aspects not described in Alexius’ Duality Hacks.

This article, however, is not especially about the empty breath, so if you want a more detailed explanation of how it feels, read the article What does the empty breath feel like or read Take-offs into the empty breath for connecting with it or Notes on the empty breath to learn about its purpose. But now, onto the subject of this article, namely the inward-facing senses.

Fearing the empty breath is not unfounded, if you want to remain as someone special in a world defined by time and space, because the empty breath guides you into the world of the inward-facing senses, where you are nobody.

So if you fear the empty breath, you know it is because you believe to be someone definitive, and as this belief is undone by the empty breath, there is nothing to fear if you connect with it.

The empty breath is not a step to something better because it is a state of not knowing, and so is the other duality hack in Alexius’ Duality Hacks. For this reason, there is no way to know if they differ from each other or in any way overlap each other. And so what. There is nobody to care about that in a state of not-knowing. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

THE WORLD OF THE INWARD-FACING SENSES
In the case of Alexius, the main period for mostly experiencing the world of the inward-facing senses and having glimpses of Enlightenment is just before going to sleep. He gives the world of the outward-facing senses minimum attention, so he can travel in the world of the inner ones.

This often starts as a perfect moment induced by his inclusiveness. From there, he is taken into a state of not-knowing where he has glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is one. However, he does not know if a perfect moment and a state of not-knowing differ or are intertwined. And neither does he know how long time they last.

Yet, he knows it comes and goes and that a state of not-knowing probably lasts less than 20 minutes since a brain will fall into a coma if it is not kept active with thoughts about how to develop what you appear to be so you seem to become and have more (see the article Willingness not to exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one).

If a state of not-knowing differs from being induced by a take-off into the empty breath, glimpses of enlightenment, inclusiveness, pretending to be someone definitive, seeing symbols of life in the world or being alone together, which are the main duality hacks (see the table of contents) is not to say, since it is a state of not-knowing.

When he wakes up in the morning, he also knows that the cure for believing to be someone definitive is to be in a state of not-knowing. Whether it is triggered by the empty breath or another duality hack does not matter. What matters is that the pure bliss of a state of not-knowing is achieved totally effortlessly without the help of thoughts and feelings, so when the state is over, and he again seems to have thoughts and feelings, he knows he does not need them.

The wording in this image seems to suggest what new age people like to believe, namely that even though almost all thoughts are illusionary, at least some of them are real, so if you look hard enough, you will find the truth. But as there is nobody to look for anything other than the ‘self’, any kind of searching or self-restraint seems to prove you are a self, and thus an illusion since there is no self. In other words, all thoughts are illusionary, and the way to expose them is to not participate in the race for more – regardless it appears to be so-called spiritual or materialistic – because believing to be a ‘self’ is all about being and having more than the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

But when he forgets that there is no more than the formlessness of that which is One, thoughts and feelings seem important because if interpreted to be caused by a world where there seems to be more than one, they can prove he is someone in it.* However, in the below description of a blissful night, where most of his awareness is on the abstract world of the inward-facing senses, he is reminded there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

When it is the empty breath that takes care of the switch between the inner and outward-facing senses, you do not where the border between them is – or if there is one.

A NIGHT WITH BLISSFUL MOMENTS OF NOT-KNOWING
Laying in the bed with a sleeping mask** on and earphones with triple flange sleeves* plugged into his ears, the transparent sound of the empty breath*** seems to transport him into worlds of light, where lucid flowers or whole universes unfold at an extreme speed or in slow-mo until thoughts or feelings are trying to surface and sleep sets in. Going into a deep sleep, the visions of light continue, and when he wakes up early in the morning, they turn into ethereal harmonies.

It does not seem exciting to me anymore to travel in worlds of light. I am rather naturally attracted to leaving everything behind and as nothing sucked though a black hole into that which is one. It seems though, that I am to return in order to complete my non teachings. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It seems like ages ago when Alexius enjoyed travelling in worlds of lucid light. Nowadays, he prefers not to see anything and as nothing float through a black hole**** into the formlessness of that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Actually, this is a typical description from many years ago, where the glimpses of Enlightenment were exciting journeys in the enchanted worlds of light. Nowadays, he does not care much for such visions, which mostly are exciting because they, to some extent, are recognisable. Instead, he is drawn to visions of abstract nothingness. That is until they swirl together around a so-called black hole****, which is neither exciting nor relaxing. It just is.

The vibration that Aum or Sohang symbolises,***** is another aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One that can be experienced through the inward-facing senses. In the case of Alexius, it pops up every now and then during the day as a natural extension of the empty. The taste of the Enlightenment of that which is One also pops up – for example, when he is writing about it.

The Enlightenment of that which is One is impersonal, but the vague memories of it is filtered by the personality, and as it is not able to embrace one perpetual present, it is described as a personal experience in time and space. Glimpses of enlightenment is solely a personal experience.

Eyes cannot see – they translate, or it is rather the brain that translate all the otherwise meaningless info it receives through the eyes according to how it is conditioned to see the world. If it receives info that does not fit into its image of the world, it twist it until it does. In other words, you have no idea about what is written in this article or what is in the world. If you acknowledge this you do not need to read my non teachings, because this acknowledgement bids welcome the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE READ BECAUSE IT IS COLOURED BY YOUR INTERPRETATION
Be aware that the above is how Alexius experiences the world of the inward-facing senses when the world of the outward-facing senses gets less attention or absolutely none. But just like you and he probably experience things in the world of the outward-facing senses differently, the same may apply to the glimpses of Enlightenment from the world of the inward-facing senses – and regarding the Enlightenment of that which is One the vague memories of not being someone at all are most likely selective.

In other words, the descriptions you get in Alexius’ Duality Hacks of the Enlightenment of that which is One and the glimpses of it are not meant to be absolute. Besides, you have actually not read the descriptions, but your interpretations of them.*****

The night can be full of restless dreams, that seem very real, until you quietly wake up to the sound of ethereal music, that cancels out the confusion of the night, so that you full of clarity get out bed.

Neither is his experience the same every night. Some nights thoughts or emotions seem to take over and take him into the world of the outward-facing senses. No worries, if that happens to you too. It is a great way to see that thoughts and emotions have no power, and that power is unnecessary when there is no need to be someone.

The key to opening up to the world of the inward-facing senses is purpose, namely the purpose of not using the outward-facing senses to experience a tangible world outside of you.

If the the purpose of putting on a sleeping mask is to cancel out the ligt from the world of the outer senses, you will be in the light of the inner senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If the purpose of putting on a sleeping mask is to cancel out the light from the world of the outward-facing senses, there will be lucid light coming from the world of the inward-facing senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

ANYTHING INTERPRETED AS SPECIFIC ENDS THE TOUR OF THE INWARD-FACING SENSES
You cannot do something to be in the world of the inward-facing senses because the intention of doing something to be or have something only works in the world of the outward-facing senses, as that is experienced to be tangible. But for the very same reason, you can do something to not experience the world of the outward-facing senses – for example, putting on a sleeping mask.

Best to forget all the descriptions from Alexius’ Duality Hacksabout the glimpses of enlightenment, as you may interpret them to be something specific, and that cannot be replicated in the world of the inward-facing senses.

Suppose you remember the last time you travelled in incredible worlds of lucid light, and you want more excitement like that. In that case, you will not get it, as defining glimpses of Enlightenment in this way turn them into an experience of the outward-facing senses because only there does it seem possible to experience something specifically more than once. In other words, if trying to interpret the glimpses of the Enlightenment in the way you do in the world of the outward-facing senses, there are no more glimpses to experience.

When you completely turn off the outward-facing senses – or rather are willing to do so – you bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One. No image can be shown of that because it cannot be experienced since the experience of something requires more than one. Glimpses of Enlightenment, however, can be experienced. One of the last glimpses you may have before there is no more consciousness, as it requires more than one to be conscious of something, could be something like this image looking like a horse head, which is what a so-called black hole**** sometimes look like just before there is nothing but light. There is not someone to know if the light is exploding out of the hole or into it. Neither does anybody know that there is nothing else than light with no colour or substance until there is no more than the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

TO TURN OFF THE OUTWARD-FACING SENSES PARTIALLY OR TOTALLY
The easiest way to switch between the outward and inward-facing senses is, of course, to let the empty breath take care of it – see Notes on the empty breath – but until you are willing to choose not to choose yourself but to be guided by the empty breath the below suggestion can be of help.

You turn off the outward-facing senses by not selecting specific thoughts and feelings to be excluded but instead include them so that there are no contrasts left – for example, good and bad – and consequently, nothing to define you as someone definitive. If the inclusion is not complete but partial, you have glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, and if it is completed, there is not someone to hide the Enlightenment of that which is One.

Do not pay too much attention to the world of the outward-facing senses, when in the world of the inward-facing senses, but let it be there somewhere in the background. When moving in the world of the outward-facing senses, it is often best hardly to pay attention to the inner world except as a blissful memory, that helps you to focus on what you seem to be doing in the world of the outward-facing senses without being deceived by it.

There are no rules though, so there can be times where the two worlds seem to mix in a beneficial way, but why not fully enjoy the taste of wine on the premises of the world of the outward-facing senses, and totally space out when you fly through amazing worlds of abstract light in the world of the inward-facing senses.

In other words, when you are solely in the world of the inward-facing senses, the belief in being someone in a specific body defined by time and space is undone by the Enlightenment of that which is One. And so, you do not appear to be in a world defined by time and space anymore. Neither do you seem to be somewhere else because the belief in being someone is undone. Thus it is not an out-of-body experience. It is not an experience at all.

In the Enlightenment of that which is One, there is no consciousness of a body or that you ever seemed to be or have one because it takes more than one to be conscious about something. In other words, there is no more than that which always was and always will be, namely the formlessness of that which is One, since formlessness is endless and therefore everything.

**) If the Silk Eye Mask For Sleeping and Shure SE215 Earphone with Triple Flange Sleeves that Alexius uses when going to sleep are the best ones for turning off the outward-facing senses and going into the world of the inner ones, he does not know, but they seem to work for him. The earphone, by the way, is probably one of the best in its price range for listening to music from the world of the outward-facing senses. Concerning turning off the hearing sense of the outer world, though, it does not matter what earphones you use, as long as they are used with Triple Flange Sleeves, because they are what so effectively cancels out the sound from what is judged to be outside of you.

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

Updated May 22, 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.

We let ourselves be deceived by the outward-facing senses into believing that a world in which everything seems to be separated by time and space is real. Still, when these senses are turned inwards, there is no time and space, and therefore nothing to uphold the belief in separation, wherefore you do not appear as someone definitive.

Without the belief in separation, there is not something 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 know anything. Also, an explosion may not be the best word to use because it is nothing but empty space carrying the nothingness of you into the formlessness of that which is One. End of story or what?

THE FORMLESSNESS OF ONENESS IS ENDLESS
This is not the end of the story because what is formless is endless – not in the sense that it lasts forever. On the contrary, it lasts no time but one perpetual present. However, this never-ending story cannot be written in a world defined by time and space because everything has an end in such a world. In terms of the ending, though, returning to the formlessness of that which is One is the termination of time and space – at least that is how it seems within linear time.

Researches from University of California Santa Barbara have proved that human cells and neutron stars have something in common. Both are namely built of layers – looking like a parking garage with many floors that are connected via steps.

But as there is nothing else than one perpetual present, the only thing that ends is the imagination of a world defined by time and space. Yet reading this article, you still believe in this imagination of a tangible world constructed of layer upon layer of thoughts, added so that it seems there are different levels in this capsule of time and space. Within this context, it also appears as if there are levels of turning the outward-facing senses inwards and that the more the inward-facing senses take over, the more you occur to have glimpses of Enlightenment.

It is a relief, when glimpses of enlightenment slowly but surely undoes the belief in being someone definitive – but very unsettling if you want to hang onto this belief.

These glimpses, however, are not the Enlightenment of that which is One because there are no levels in that which is One. Nevertheless, they slowly but surely undo the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one, contrary to the Enlightenment of that which is One, whereas it is timeless – it takes no time to have this belief undone.

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

However, the timelessness of that which is One cannot be brought into a world defined by time and space, so you will not be able to know what it is if you experience reappear in such a world after having bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One.

Yet you will have vague memories of it, and that is enough to be reminded constantly, that there is no more than that which is One, and consequently, all experiences – whether they seem to be so-called spiritual or mundane – are illusions, as it takes more than one to experience something.

Glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is One are experienced with the inward-facing senses, while being aware of the world of the outward-facing senses as well – although it seems quite distant.

But to bid the Enlightenment of that which is One welcome the outward-facing senses must be completely closed. In other words, there are no awareness of the world of the outward-facing senses and after entering the Enlightenment of that which is One there is neither no awareness of the inward-facing senses. Actually, there is no awareness at all, as it takes more than one to be aware of something.

To sum it 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 you have while still aware of appearing to be someone in 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.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE IS NOT PERSONAL, BUT GLIMPSES OF IT IS
The technique for tasting the nectar of life (see the previous article The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them) Alexius likes to do during the day – not so much for the taste of it, but for the sphere of indifference, that it, like the empty breath,* induces.

This is the look of the mountain in the two first photos when you are almost on top of it. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being indifferent, he is not distracted from going with the flow of the ongoing glimpses of the Enlightenment whenever he is not dealing with something that craves much attention in the world of the outward-facing senses. And if he is involved in something that demands much attention, the indifference towards it makes sure that the perception of it is founded on glimpses of Enlightenment. In other words, the world is experienced, but not as if he is there. It is more like sitting in a cinema, imagining being in the world on the screen.

Depending on the strength of the glimpses of the enlightenment of that which is One, it can be like momentarily dying from the world of the outward-facing senses. Therefore, if you appear to be occupied by something there, it can be very disturbing.

Glimpses of ethereal harmonies come and go as they please. In the case of Alexius, he enjoys waking up in the morning accompanied by the distant sound of ethereal harmonies. But when he at night closes his eyes to fall asleep, the ongoing spirals of light, which are brighter than the light from his lamps, keep coming, distracting him from falling asleep. 

During the day, there are glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One, mainly in the form of short splashes of lucid light and hearing or feeling the vibration that Aum, Sohang or The Word of God symbolises.

Besides, there are vague memories of passing both the outer and inward-facing senses into the Enlightenment of that which is One, where all thoughts and feelings collected to justify the belief in a world defined by time and space are extracted so that there is no belief to hide that which has no beginning or end and therefore is everything, namely the formlessness of oneness.

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. 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 by the one interpreting the description.

TRYING TO MAKE SOMETHING LAST ONLY APPEARS MEANINGFUL IN A WORLD WHERE EVERYTHING HAS AN END
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 by prolonging the glimpses via meditation or other kinds of techniques that seem to make you able to transform energies so heaven and earth merge.

The idea of heaven and hell is an idea based on duality, which is founded on contrasts like that. And as you cannot have one without the other, you cannot have only heaven in a world of duality. Neither in non-duality, because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to have something.

This idea of a better world is founded on the belief that you are in control and thus can create a world as you see fit. But neither dictators, rich people, political or so-called spiritual-minded persons have ever succeeded in creating a world in the way they think it should be. But they assume it is something in themselves or others that need to be adjusted for it to happen. But no matter how much you correct, all you get are more frustrations because there is nothing to correct but the belief that you are definitive.

Whether you experience, you are free in the now, spiritual or whatnot, it echoes past conditioning, that you hold onto with the sole purpose of being someone special.

Instead of having this belief undone, most, who have had one or more glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One, start teaching how to make the world better – as if there is a world to make 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 traditions of meditation and whatnot. They may, for example, 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.

You freely choose to give Facebook all your info in exchange for being able to construct a personality in its virtual world, as if this construction constitutes a real person.

Time and space are not a fact, but a belief system, that you blindly follow. You choose to be conditioned by it so that it seems to be a fact, that you are someone definitive in a world defined by time and space instead of the formlessness of that which is One.

*) This article was written before the empty breath was introduced in Alexius’ Duality Hacks. Much to his surprise, he wrote many new articles only about the empty breath when he was proofreading hack #6.3 The inward-facing senses, the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it. Those articles became a new hack, namely, hack #4, A state of not-knowing is nothing but bliss. If you want a bit of info about the empty breath, check out Notes on the empty breath.


NOTES:

A reintroduction to the inward-facing senses, ‘the Enlightenment of that which is One’ and glimpses of it

Updated May 21, 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.

As it takes more than one to have a vision, no matter how impressive your inner visions of light seem to be, they are not the Enlightenment of that which is One but glimpses of it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The world of the outward-facing senses is experienced via seeing, hearing, feeling and tasting/smelling it. But if those senses are turned inwards instead, the Enlightenment of that which is One is revealed through seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting/smelling it.

However, it is not exactly like this because the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced since it takes more than one to be aware of something.

Someone, who believes to be defintive, cannot gracefully fall through a black hole into the formlessness of oneness. Yet someone who believes to be definable can learn how to have this belief undone.

But bidding welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One is something that can be experienced via seeing, hearing, feeling or tasting it. This is not the Enlightenment of that which is One, though, but glimpses of it, which come through a hole that sometimes seems to be black and other times full of lucid. See the article The ins and outs of a black hole.

Having visual glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One can be an experience of travelling through lucid worlds with ever-changing flashes of light. When those flashes of light are not perceived to differ from each other, there is no separation to define you as someone definitive anymore.

When you play a game, you may forget where you actually are. One way to remember it is to undo the knowledge of what and where you appear to be. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As that means there is nobody experiencing anything, there is not someone to fight the construction of thoughts that seem to have replaced the formlessness of that which is One with someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one is abruptly extracted by an exceptionally bright white light, that the glimpses have turned into without you being aware of it, as none of this is not happening in linear time but in one perpetual present.

In other words, everything you ever believed to be and have is gone without you knowing it or having any memory of having believed to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Hence there is nothing to gracefully fall through the hole that is no more because there is no experience to hide that which always has been and always will be, since it is formless and therefore endless, namely that which is One.

A glimpse of the enlightenment of that which is One is comparable to a movie trailer. It is a sample of the entire film, and therefore not to be confused with the whole one.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE CANNOT BE EXPERIENCED
Most people, however, work against the flow of Enlightenment, which is done by defining what there seems to be to see, hear, feel or taste as something similar to past experiences so that the Enlightenment of that which is One is fragmented into more than one, wherefore the belief in being someone in a world where there seems to be more than one is not undone.

And as the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be bid welcome without having this belief undone for just one moment, you only had glimpses of it and therefore do not know what it is.

If you for a moment forget what and where you appear to be, there is not someone hiding the enlightenment of that which is one. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If you for a moment forget what and where you appear to be, there is not someone appearing to hide the enlightenment of that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As the enlightenment of that which is One is not of a world where there seems to be more than one, someone believing to be there cannot be enlightened. But if you for a moment forget what and where you are you are, there is not a world where there seems to be more than one to hide the enlightenment of that which is One.

Returning from the enlightenment of that which is One as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one, you are not enlightened, because enlightenment is not something definitive. Yet, there are vague memories of the enlightenment of that which is One, so you are to be compared to it.

This, however, would have been the same result if the belief in being someone definitive momentarily had been undone because then there is not someone to know the Enlightenment of that which is One. In other words, what you believe to be can never be Enlightened. Yet it is possible to momentarily forget what and where you are, so there is nothing for the Enlightenment of that which is One to gracefully carry through a hole that is not there into the formlessness of that which is One.

Therefore since what you believe in being has not been Enlightened, you appear to be the same if going back to the experience of being in a world where there seems to be more than one. However, due to vague memories of that which is One, you do not believe this experience is real. Hence you are to be compared to the Enlightenment of that which is One.

To round off, as 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. Hence they can be experienced by someone definitive. See also The Enlightenment of that which is One versus glimpses of it.

The names of  the outward and inward-facing senses do not refer to their location but that 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 to be separated from you. But it does not mean this world is inside you. There is neither anything inside nor outside of you, as that requires more than one, and there is no more than the formlessness of oneness.

It is the same within the context of a world defined by time and space, because, scientifically speaking, this world consists of empty space. Thus whatever you seem to experience is make-believe – also that someone reads this. However, it is easier to expose this, when 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 seem to see an ‘E’ here, you focus on seeing something recognisable to disguise empty space as something. The empty space is not the formlessness of oneness, but when you do not imagine it is a world defined by time and space, no substantial elements seem to hide the formlessness of oneness. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

PARTIAL DEVOTION TO THE INWARD-FACING SENSES RESULTS IN GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT
To experience that you are someone substantial in a world defined by time and space, constant focus on something specific is required for the outward-facing senses to fabricate the depth needed to make the experience appear dimensional. Otherwise, the outward-facing senses cannot build this illusion.

So the more you defocus, the more the definable world of the outward-facing senses is complemented with the abstract world of the inward-facing senses, where you are bid welcome by glimpses of light if you are visual-minded, ethereal music if you are auditory minded, and the taste or feeling of that which is One in case you are emotional minded.

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

The purpose of the inward-facing senses and their glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One is to attract you to such an extent that you cannot help yourself but have them undo the belief that it is possible to be someone definitive, even though it means the end of what you believe to be – just like a moth cannot help but to follow its attraction to the flame, even though it is gonna be the end of it.

The idea of mixing something is based on the belief in separation, so do not try to mix glimpses of light with glimpses of ethereal music, for example, as this will imply they are separated. Just welcome whatever glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One that seems to come your way. Never try to hang onto a glimpse or to have it repeated. If it changes into another aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One, go with that.

What you believe to be is a hallucination, that seems to cover the enlightenment of that which is One – also if you believe to be spiritual, because any belief requires more than one.

These glimpses, as already noted, are not the Enlightenment of that which is One, as it has no room for someone being conscious of something since that requires more than one. This does not mean that the person you believe to be is replaced by the Enlightenment of that which is One, but that whatever you believe to be is an illusion.

The healing of the body caused by partly being devoted to the inward-facing senses is just a side effect, that helps you not to care about physicality and its inevitable end.

THE INWARD-FACING SENSES AND THE BODY
Devotion to the inward-facing senses will heal your body if that is not its purpose. It may not include genetically caused diseases, though. But as devotion to the inward-facing senses calms the body, a genetically created condition will not seem to generate fear, which otherwise may further damage the body if projected upon it (see hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues).

When, however, the body’s wellbeing is the purpose of devoting yourself to the inward-facing senses, you cannot be attentive to the world of the inward-facing senses since that requires having no specific focus, so the world of the inward-facing senses fades out without you even noticing it. Thus 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 bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, that right away erases all memories of you being someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one. As you are not there anymore, there is nobody to know how long time this takes. But most of all, because the Enlightenment of that which is One is not a process but one perpetual present.

At first, however, it may seem to be a process, and as long as that is the case, the brain that produced the experiences of you as someone definitive is not dead, so it can be rebooted and again make these experiences. But since it takes more than one to be anything, they 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 like you used to.

But as soon as the Enlightenment of that which is One does not seem to be a process, which in the concept of time happens in is less than a minute, the brain cannot be rebooted and therefore not produce the experience of you as a substantial being in a tangible world, wherefore there is nothing to hide that which always has been and always will be you, 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.

The appearance of you as someone in a world, where there seems to be more than one, is a fabrication constructed from thoughts, where some are chosen to be included, as if they are that which is you, and others are excluded, as if they are not you but somebody else. By not excluding specific thoughts but including them all, you become everything and you also lose the appearance of being someone specific, because there are no excluded thoughts to define you as someone definitive. In other words, inclusion excludes what is not real, so there is nothing but the formlessness of that which is you. Enlightenment of that which is one does the same, and so do the other ´ways´ suggested in my non teachings. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Your appearance in a world where there seems to be more than one is a fabrication of thoughts. The ones you judge as good are chosen to be included, and those regarded as bad are excluded. The excluded ones produce what you consider others to be and what you are not, so if no thoughts are excluded, there is nobody to define you as separate from others. Inclusion, therefore, excludes what is not real, namely separation, so that there is not something to hide, there is no more than that which is One. Bidding welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One has the same result, and so does the implementation of the other ‘ways’ of coming back to that which is One suggested in Alexius’ Duality Hacks.

IS THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE REQUIRED TO HAVE THE BELIEF IN A WORLD WHERE THERE SEEMS TO BE MORE THAN ONE UNDONE?
The Enlightenment of that which is One can be said to be the last step to the formlessness of oneness. Still, as formlessness is endless, you have never left it, so there is no step back to it, and therefore no need to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One in any one of its aspects or to have glimpses of it*.

Neither do you have to be connected with the empty breath or devote yourself to the inward-facing senses to have the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One undone. It can 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 #3.2 Inclusiveness is freedom).

The same applies to pretending to be someone 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 life).

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 Alone together is the key to that which is One).

But you do not even need Alexius’ Duality Hacks to have this belief undone. All that is necessary is not remembering what and where you are since that means there is no belief in being someone definitive that appears to hide the formlessness of that which is One.


There is no experience of love without the experience of hate, because you cannot know one without the other. Multitasking allows you to experience both emotions simultaneously, and so hate is as blissful as love. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The reason that so many avoid multitasking is that multitasking leaves them with no time to suppress anger and other feelings, that destroys the perfect image of themselves as somebody at peace, full of love and whatnot.

What they do not know, when keeping specific feelings hidden – hate for example – is that they diminish the experience of their contrasts – in this case love – because you cannot have one without the other.

Least of all do they know that when both sides of a contrast are equally acknowledge, their apparent difference makes no difference. Thus it is just as blissful loving somebody as to hate them.

Be aware though, that to be in the bliss of indifference, instead of the consciousness of being someone definitive, you must be willing to be nobody.

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 be illustrating the last glimpse of the Enlightenment of that which is One before you give up seeing something specific. There is an abrupt shift to the Enlightenment of that which is One that extracts all the info you have collected to appear as someone definitive and leaves it at the edge of what seems to be a black hole so that nothing is falling through it and gracefully float into the formlessness of that which is One. You do not know how fast this is happening because you are no more and have no conscious of ever having been anybody because there is nothing but that which is One. This is not compatible with appearing as someone definitive in a world defined by time and space, so if that is what you want, you better make sure that the info making up your appearance as someone definitive is not extracted – or that you know how to find it again – which is simply is to go with the flow of fear. And yes, there is also fear in that which is One. No worries. It cannot be experienced there. That is not possible since it would require more than one. It is, however, possible to imagine there is more than one, and going with the fear that this entails, you seem to leave it and instead be part of a world defined by time and space. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

MULTITASKING THE INWARD AND OUTWARD-FACING SENSES
Much devotion to the world of the inward-facing senses may space you out regarding the present moment in the world of the outward-facing senses. Yet, if you do not have to be present there, you just go with the flow of the inward-facing senses, as if the world outside of you stands still.

But if you want to go on appearing as someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one, it is, of course, best to totally focus on the world of the outward-facing senses so that the abstractness of the inner world does not interfere with your plans for having more money, power, love, life, energy and whatnot.

However, should you become tired of the race for more, you multitask between the inner and outward-facing senses so that being loaded with glimpses of Enlightenment in the world of the inward-facing senses makes you indifferent to the constant demand for more in the world of the outward-facing senses.

If you do not want the belief in being someone definitive to be abruptly undone by the enlightenment of that which is One, multitasking between the inner and outward-facing senses could be your approach, as that allows you to have this belief undone in a pleasant pace while having a good time pretending to be what you are not.

Multitasking is said to disturb the brain so that it is harder for it to focus on something specific. That is why it is beneficial regarding having the belief in being someone definitive undone  – especially the multitasking of the inner and outward-facing senses, which happens all by itself when connected with the empty breath.

When you are multitasking the world of the inner and outward-facing senses with the help of the empty breath thoughts are not considered to be yours, so nobody is going anywhere, even though it may appear so.

The empty breath automatically syncs the outer and the inward-facing senses so that everything feels okay. Nothing is wrong or missing. This is not the purpose of the empty breath, though. Instead, its purpose is to undo the belief in being definitive. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

THE EMPTY BREATH AUTOMATICALLY SYNCS THE INWARD AND OUTWARD-FACING SENSES
Those not connected with the empty breath are often tempted to skip the part of having the belief in being someone specific undone and instead use their own special blend of the outer and inward-facing senses as the means to fabricate their particular version of paradise.

The purpose of this often is to establish themselves as spiritual helpers. Still, as there only is somebody to help, when you believe in separation, your so-called compassion and help enhance the suffering that this belief entails (see the article Coming from the heart is a denial of that which is One). Besides, there is no paradise without hell since a world where there seems to be more than one can only be experienced through contrasts.

It is common to think, it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. Yet you do not appear as someone specific in a world where there seem to be more than one to find more, but to see there is no more than the formlessness of that which is One.

So instead of using the glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One to establish an image of yourself as a new messiah full of love and light, use them to expose the frustration coming from the belief in being someone definitive so that its unedited energy can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath.

The moment you have no need give or receive help or support, the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is undone.

As the inward-facing senses operate on high-frequency, speedy thoughts and feelings seem to rest there. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The connection with the empty breath automatically syncs the outer and inward-facing senses. As the latter operate at an extremely high frequency, the wild speculations in the low-frequency world of the outward-facing senses do not seem to cause confusion but relaxation. So the apparent differences of the world experienced with the outward-facing senses slowly cease to make a difference. Thus the foundation for the belief in separation fades out. And so there is nobody to imagine that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One.

Following the guidance of the empty breath you are automatically multitasking, because it does not know the concept of focusing on something specific. So when you are do not feel the empty breath multitasking connects you with it.

Read about how to connect with the empty breath in the articles Take-offs into the empty breathWhere to find the bliss of the empty breath and How to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. For a general introduction to the empty breath, check the articles The ins and outs of the empty breath, The empty breath sets the body freeThe nature of the empty breath and The function of the empty breath. If you want to read Alexius’ experience of the empty breath, check out What does the empty breath feel like?

A PERFECT MOMENT
Since there is no sense of anything having a beginning or end, it may last longer than the idea of now, which is a concept of something between the past and the future. In other words, the idea of now is based on excluding the past and the future, whereas a perfect moment includes everything. Read more about that in hack #3.1 Every moment is the perfect moment.

When differences are not perceived to make a difference, the foundation for the belief in separation is gone. So everything outside of you is inside of you, where is nothing since without an outside, there is no inside. In other words, if you do not return from this state of not-knowing to a world where there seems to be more than one, there is nothing to hide there is no more than that which is One. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Hence it makes no difference if there are thoughts about the past, the future or anything else. Actually, the most distinctive feature of a perfect moment is that the apparent different thoughts are not perceived to make a difference. That is why it does not matter if you judge something.

Since differences are not perceived to make a difference in a perfect moment, nobody cares if the bliss of it should differ from a state of not-knowing.

A perfect moment is brought about by any duality hack except for the Enlightenment of that which is One, as that is not a state of mind since it takes more than one to be in a state. It is also the after-effect of a state of not-knowing.

Be happy if you cannot overcome the hopelessness that seems to blow you away when having left a state of not-knowing, because when you are blown away a state of not-knowing returns.

Being alone together is based on the realisation that the power behind every experience you seem to have is that which is you. Just like every appearance in a dream is both empowered and interpreted by the dreamer. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

ALONE TOGETHER
Since the apparent differences in what is usually perceived to be a world outside of you are not perceived to make a difference when in a state of not-knowing and as that applies to whatever seems to be inside of what is typically believed to be you, inside and outside is the same – or rather there is no inside and outside or any other contrasts to define you as someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

You are alone together, having a fantasy about being someone special in a world where there seems to be more than one. But no matter what appears to be happening in that fantasy, you are not in it – just like within the context of this fantasy, a dreamer is not in its dream, although the dream is in the dreamer.

Read more about alone together in the following article To be alone together is to undo the belief in separation or hack #7 Alone together is the key to that which is One.

You cannot know this before you have left a state of not-knowing, and memories start popping up of how blissful it is not to believe you are someone definitive in a world where there seems to be more than one.

There may also be memories of the transition, which can be quite claustrophobic, as there is nobody to project your troubles and sorrows on since there is nothing but the tight unit of you. But as soon as you start feeling the peace that comes from not feeling disturbed by anybody, this unit is not tense anymore. Actually, it is not there because you do not believe to be someone definitive.

When the apparent differences of a world where there seems to be more than one are not perceived to make a difference, you are not separated from what you experience to be a world outside of you. In other words, you are alone together with your experience of a world where there seems to be more than one – and since this is how you imagine having left the formlessness of oneness, you can reverse this and return to that which you never left, since formlessness is endless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

As you may already have read, you got to leave a state of not-knowing pretty soon if you want to remain as someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. Neither can you stay in this state if you do not wish to return to the fantasy of being someone definitive but to the formlessness of oneness, as being in any state requires more than one.

Staying true to being alone together is not a dilemma because alone together implies you have never been in a world where there seems to be more than one. On the contrary, like a dreamer, within the context of such a world, you are in your bed, which, in this context, is a metaphor for that which is One. And since oneness is formless and therefore without beginning and end, you have never left it.

CANCELLEX The inward-facing senses versus the outward ones

Updated May 21, 2022

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

Updated May 27, 2022

To avoid being influenced by thoughts no special posture or surroundings are needed. All that is needed is to not be concerned about the outcome of anything at all, so that the apparent difference of attaining something or not makes no difference. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

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

Suppose you do not believe thoughts to be real. In that case, it is easy to bid welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One because all that is needed to bid it welcome is not to be attentive to the meaning of thoughts, which is not to be mistaken for stopping them, as that requires someone definitive doing it – and to be definitive requires lots of thoughts judged to have a specific meaning.

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

The Enlightenment of that which is One is bid welcome when you are not exclusive but inclusive.

In other words, there is nobody to know if you are Enlightened because to know something requires more than one. Also, what you appear to be in the world is not enlightened because a person cannot be enlightened.

Yet a person can step aside so that there is not something definable to hide the indefinable light of that which is One. To not be exclusive but inclusive is to step aside because inclusiveness neutralises contrasts. And without them, there is nothing that defines you as someone definitive and therefore not something not to bid welcome the formlessness of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

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

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

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

The Enlightenment of that which is One is one perpetual present and therefore cannot be brought back into a world of linear time, so if returning to such a world, you are not in the Enlightenment of that which is One. Yet, as there are vague memories of it, you are to be compared to someone who is the Enlightenment of that which is One. The person that you appear to be in the world is not changed by this. Neither is it necessary because the appearance of you in a world where there seems to be more than one is an illusion, and so is any change of it.

The visual aspect of having glimpses of enlightenment can for example reveal the birth of a universe.The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The visual aspect of having glimpses of Enlightenment can, for example, reveal the birth of a universe. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

If a person only partially bids welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One, there will just be glimpses of it in the form of hearing, feeling or tasting an echo of that which is One. It can also be spaced out visions of travelling through different universes, seeing Jesus or the birth of a new universe in slow motion, which is very exciting, of course. Still, as it is something experienced, it has nothing to do with the Enlightenment of that which is One.

GLIMPSES OF ENLIGHTENMENT TURN YOU INTO SOMEONE WHO APPEARS TO BE IN THE WORLD OF THE OUTWARD-FACING SENSES BUT NOT OF IT
You cannot go around as a person enlightened of that which is One, but you can go around having glimpses of it. If you do, you may seem distant from the world, as if you are not there. Yet you are more present than most because to be present, you cannot be in a world where there seems to be more than one.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

The after-effect of ‘a state of not-knowing’

Updated May 23, 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.

THE AFTER-EFFECT OF A STATE OF NOT-KNOWING:
You need to return from a state of not-knowing to the conscious experience of being somebody after 20 minutes, 45 at most. If not, there is nobody to repeatedly confirm that the experiences fabricated by the brain from nothing into something are real. Therefore, since there is not something to disguise that the makings of the brain are fake, they fall apart.

So if you do not want the experience of being someone to be terminated, you return from a state of not-knowing to the consciousness of being someone relatively quickly. Since the slate has been wiped clean in a state of not-knowing, you automatically come back as the basic self. This is a bit like a chicken whose reflexes go on even though its head has been cut off. But in your case, it is not the head that is cut off but the silly idea that you are independent. Thus you do not have to figure out where to go. The brain will let you know.

Returning from a state of not-knowing as the basic self, the relationships you used to perceive as special most likely fall apart because you do not look for something special anymore (read more about that here).

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 – as you depend on it to make the experiences of you as someone in a dream you have.

Going along with the experiences as they are, and not as you think they should be, feels like you are sleepwalking. You just cannot speed up to get something definitive. That is unless you break the magic by repeating specific thoughts and feelings, which is very stressful. But fortunately, the stress can be used for a new take-off into the empty breath and the bliss of nothing, from where you again return renewed to a conscious experience of being someone.

You will probably go back and forth between this consciousness and a state of not-knowing many times before you forget to return and instead bid welcome the enlightenment of that which is One.

THE AFTER-EFFECT OF THE BLISS OF NOTHING
When you return from a state of not-knowing to the belief in being someone definitive and have forgotten the bliss of not believing that, the empty breath remembers it for you – also if you only remember the empty breath once in a while. And just like it syncs being nobody with being somebody in a state of not-knowing, so you can move around in nothing as if it is something, it also does that in the after-effect of it. The ratio is different, though.

In a state of not-knowing, there is so little consciousness of being somebody that there is nobody to perceive the apparently different experiences to make a difference. This is in the bliss of nothing. In the after-effect, the empty breath syncs the bliss of nothing with the conscious experience of something, so emptiness is forgotten when you need to be aware of something like driving a car. In other words, in a state of not-knowing, you are, first of all, nobody, and in the after-effect, you are mostly somebody.

When someone is hurt in a movie you watch, you may also feel hurt. That is why the movie seems real. But since the film is not perceived as real, it seems entertaining to be hurt. This is how it is to be connected with the empty breath. Though the world appears to be real, you perceive it as unreal. Hence its apparent ups and downs are equally enjoyable.

But since your slate is wiped clean in a state of not-knowing, there are no misperceptions of being special in the after-effect of it. Thus you are the basic. It perceives every experience as it is what it is. Hence, no matter in which ratio nothing and something is synced by the empty breath, each experience makes it equally entertaining to appear as if you are someone definitive. This after-effect lasts from a few seconds to several years if you do not hold onto specific thoughts and feelings. An excellent way to prevent this is to apply hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

This is often done with new-age concepts of being in balance, the now and whatnot. That is until you are so frustrated from trying to make these concepts work, and you do not attempt to fix the disappointment but have the unedited energy ignites a take-off into the empty breath, so you again have your slate wiped clean in a state of not-knowing and return to the consciousness of being someone as the basic self. Read more about the basic and special self in hack #4.1 The basic self versus the special one.

 

 

The basic self is not that far from not remembering to be somebody. Thus it easily connects with the empty breath that brings it into a state of not-knowing,* where the apparent different experience of you and others is not perceived to make a difference. Since this means you cannot be defined as separated from others, there is nobody to confirm the brain’s rendering of a world where everything appears to be separated by time and space.

If this goes on for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, the brain falls into a coma because if there is not more than one having a conversation inside or outside, it is out of work. It is not very often, though, that someone falls into a state of not-knowing,* least of all that they remain there for more than 20 minutes. Everybody wants to be somebody, so they make sure to have an ongoing conversation with somebody perceived to be different from themselves. See also No change is needed to come back to that which is One.

Should they come close to forgetting this, for example by reading Alexius Enlightened Non-Teachings, the brain threatens them with total annihilation. This makes them come to heel and do their best to maintain a conversation with someone experienced to be different from themselves, so, just like in a dream, it seems that there is more than you, although there is nobody at all.

 

Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not detach you from feelings. They may seem more distant when you are in a state of not-knowing, but when you return to the consciousness of being someone definitive, they are very close. But since they are no longer perceived as something but nothing, you enjoy the intimacy of nothing in whatever shape it seems to take. Therefore, since you are indifferent to their supposed difference, the belief in separation vanishes.

Should you forget that feelings are not something but nothing and focus on their apparent tangibility, the worries that this seems to cause can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. This brings you back into a state of not-knowing, where there is nobody to judge the apparent differences in the world of duality to make a difference, so you return to the consciousness of being someone definitive in such a world based on the sense that nothing there makes a difference. Hence everything seems equally entertaining.

You can learn how to ignite a take-off into the empty breath and thus be in the bliss of nothing in hack #5.1 Uncontrolled speed leads to a state of not-knowing.

APPENDIX:
Be aware that there is absolutely no will to perceive anything in particular 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 was not somebody to be aware of being nobody in a state of not-knowing. Nor do you not know that the bliss of nothing has wiped the slate clean, so new 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.

But suppose the happiness this entails feels too basic compared with the vague memories of bliss that eventually pop up from nowhere. In that case, you may try to twist the automatically generated perceptions of the brain into something that seems to extend the memories of bliss. Hence, you appear to have something more exciting to tell the world than being a servant of the brain. And since the world wants to be fooled, they do not see that this is a show to hide you feel inferior.

To make long short, if not altering the brain’s game automatically generated perception of your reactions to the experiences it fabricate, it injects you with shots of happiness as a reward for playing its game of duality. And if not messing with the memories of bliss, you know that duality is not real, so playing the brain’s game, there is nothing to lose.

Should you forget that and, therefore, start perceiving duality as real, the frustration this causes can be used to ignite a take-off into the empty breath, so you again have the slate wiped clean and return to the consciousness of being someone with the perception in sync with the brains fantasy of you as someone in a world of duality.

This does not necessarily mean the slate remains clean. Your conditioned way of reacting may be so deeply rooted that you return to a familiar way of responding to something. But, no worries, a quick visit to a state of not-knowing, and you start over with a clean slate in the brain’s fantasy of duality.

Sooner or later, you feel so entertained by this fantasy that you forget to remember being someone. Thus there does not appear to be anybody hiding non-duality.
