Life has no secrets

Updated November 6, 2022

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Forgetting the world of the outward-facing senses

Updated October 31, 2022

The transmission from outer to inner senses is not gradually but very abrupt and it can seem frightening in the moment you sense the world, as you know it, is gonna be erased. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The total transmission from the outer to the inward-facing senses is not gradual but very abrupt, and it can seem frightening when you sense that nothing definable will make it through this transition. As you know it, you and the world will be eradicated just like that. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Just like we have the outward-facing senses to see, hear, feel, smell and taste a tangible world, we have inward-facing senses to see, hear, feel, smell and taste an abstract world. However, to use the inward-facing senses, the outward-facing ones must be more or less turned off. Read more about that here.

To be entirely cut off from the world of the outward-facing senses for a moment feels like dying. Thus most try to avoid the total transition from the outward-facing senses to the inward ones. They are afraid of the unknown and try avoiding it by doing something in the world of the outward-facing senses, like vomiting, like they do to avoid facing suppressed feelings, according to psychologists.

However, it is best to avoid that in the phase of the total transition from outer to inward-facing senses. And instead, face the extreme discomfort by including it precisely as it is without trying to understand or embrace it. Therefore, since you are what is in the moment and nothing else, it is gone in the next moment. It might be easier said than done and probably takes many moments of discomfort.

THE VISUAL ASPECT OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
If the inward-facing senses are intensely used, the outward-facing senses are in the background, and vice versa. When the inward-facing senses first time were intensely used, Alexius had been driving a taxi for 15 hours and was so exhausted that he confused traffic lights for customers trying to hire a cab.

When he finally returned home from work, no energy was left to focus on the world of the outward-facking senses. Hence the most known aspect of the inward-facing senses was activated, namely the ability to ‘see’ light. However, it was not a light that could be compared to anything you could see with the two eyes of the outward-facing senses. It burned away everything establishing him as Alexius, so there was no belief in someone definitive to hide there was or will be more than the formlessness of oneness.

In deep sleep or big exhaustion, you do not perceive differences to make a difference, which is the invitation, the Enlightenment of that which is One waits for. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

THE AUDIO ASPECT OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
Soon after, he had bid welcome the visual aspect of the Enlightenment of that which is One, the inward-facing ear opened with ethereal harmonies sounding like bells, much crisper and softer than the mundane ones. Regarding the opening of the third eye, he had no discomfort in the transition. Perhaps he was too exhausted to fight it.

Speaking of the opening of the inward-facing ear, it probably ‘happened’ in a deep sleep, where the concept of an ‘I’ is gone. Thus there is nobody to hold onto the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one.

The desire to escape that which is One makes you hang onto the belief that you are someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. That is until you realise, it is yourself that you want to escape, because that which is you is no different from that which is One.

THE TASTE ASPECT OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE
The taste of oneness is like a flavour of milk and honey with a hint of liquorice or strawberry. To start tasting it was not without discomfort for Alexius. His body reacted like it had been attacked by something dangerous and panicked by making vomit reflexes. But when he did not try to escape it, the panic turned out to be a lid on a jug of a smoothie-like texture that some scriptures call the nectar of life. In Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, it is called the taste of oneness. Read more about the sweetness of oneness here.

Since the Enlightenment of that which is One cannot be experienced, the following regarding the taste of oneness cannot be explained. But metaphorically, when the transparent sweet flavour is not defined as something familiar, it turns into the tastelessness of oneness. But it was not before Alexius had tasted this sweetness several tastes that he realised he must have bid welcome the taste of the Enlightenment of that which is One because memories start popping up of a shapeless taste.

When the biological system of the body does not function anymore, the world of the outward-facing senses cannot be experienced. But for almost half an hour you remain in the world of the inward-facing senses, and as it is only in the world of the outward-facing senses the belief in being someone specific can be upheld, nobody ssems to die. Read more about the process of dying here.

That is if you do not fight the world of the inward-facing senses by holding onto something specific, that reminds you of being someone in the world of the outward-facing senses.

In that which is One, you are not anything at all, not even the bubbling sense of oneness or the bliss of nothing. There is not someone to realise what oneness is because that requires more than one. However, it does not mean you are gone because that which is you is no different from oneness which is formless, thus endless. What is gone is the belief in being someone substantial in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

FORGETTING THE OUTWARD-FACING SENSE OF FEELING THE WORLD
The inward-facing sense of feeling was not easy to reach for Alexius. It took many years of discomfort, vomiting, being hospitalised and sometimes losing the ability to balance – to mention a few disturbing things he encountered trying to get into feeling the world of the inward-facing senses. But, no worries, when Alexius much later updated this article, he had forgotten all about this.

However, he still remembers the breakthrough. One night, Alexius was in such deep sleep that he completely died from the outward-facing sense. In other words, the belief in being Alexius was momentarily undone so that the Enlightenment of that which is One was bid welcome – not in a visual but emotional way, though. First, there was a moment of discomfort from not sensing his body being separated from the bed. Then, it was as if everything was his body, which was electric and full of tiny bubbles.

Next, it turned into a feeling with no shape, thus not tangible. Consequently, it did not establish Alexius as somebody, wherefore there was nobody to describe it. In other words, what is written here is based on vague memories that Alexius seems able to pick up from what feels very far away and yet right here.

Unlike in a world defined by time and space, where there seem to be different events happening in sequences of time, there was no time. Everything was happening simultaneously. It was and is one perpetual present of bubbles moving so fast that there only was One. Although returning to a world defined by time and space, it seems to be a sequence of events over a long time ago.

To experience the Enlightenment of that which is One, there must be someone to experience it. However, that is impossible because it takes more than one to experience something. Thus Alexius’ Enlightened Non Teachings discerns between the Enlightenment of that which is One and glimpses of it.

The former cannot be experienced and the latter is an experience of Enlightenment comparable to watching a movie trailer, which means it is not the Enlightenment of that which is One but a sample of it.

We all know, the world presented to us in a set of virtual reality glasses is not real. Yet most have forgotten, that neither is the world presented to us by the senses. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

We all know that the world experienced in a set of virtual reality glasses is unreal. Yet that applies to everything experienced because it requires more than one to be aware of something, and there is no more than that which is One since it is formless, thus endless. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

THE ENLIGHTENMENT OF THAT WHICH IS ONE VERSUS GLIMPSES OF IT
The above is about how Alexius forgot the outward-facing senses, thus getting to four aspects of the Enlightenment of that which is One. However, this is not an everyday experience. Actually, the Enlightenment of that which is One is not an experience at all because it requires more than one to be aware of something. But you can experience glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One every day. For an in-depth explanation of glimpses, check out The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them.

We all know that within the framework of a world where there seems to be more than one, the world simulated in virtual reality glasses is not real, so when you take off the glasses, the virtual world disappears. Thus there is not something to disturb you from seeing what is considered the real world. Likewise, the more the outward-facing senses are turned off, the less definable appearances prevent you from being in the abstract world of the inward-facing senses with glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One.

But the experience of this world full of lucid light, ethereal music, sweet nectar or transparent bubbles disappears if the outward-facing senses are entirely turned off, as that leaves nothing to define the glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One. Hence there are no glimpses to experience nor somebody specific to experience them. Thus not something to hide there is nothing but one perpetual present.

Please do not take the expression in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings about the inward and outward-facing senses too literal. The world of the inward-facing senses refers to a world that is not experienced as outside of you, whereas the world of the outward-facing senses are experienced outside of you. However, all experiences are make-believe.

From the perspective of a world where oneness is divided into more than one, that which is One is nothing. But from the standpoint of oneness – though no such thing is possible, as it requires more than one to have a point of view – it is everything because it is formless, thus endless.

Meditation is a con trick

Updated December 4, 2022

Whether your eyes are open or not, whatever you experience is a symbol of that which is life. If that is not what you see, meditation will not change that. On the contrary, it will confirm the belief that there are good and bad things to experience.

There is only a need to relax through meditation because you always are on the way to a moment hoped to be better than the present one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Those meditating would be better off switching to SSRIs or beta-blockers and using the time saved to explore the world where they appear to be. By doing that, they acknowledge their belief in being there. Thus they can correct their mistake.

The correction does not come from having insights, being at peace, going deeper or something else founded on the belief in being someone definitive. Instead, it comes from not being someone. That is the correction. This does not mean you cannot have a house, for example. But since you are nobody, it is not perceived as yours, thus not attesting to you as someone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Who but those perceiving themselves as dirty needs to meditate to become pure?

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Traditional eastern meditation seems to be about emptying the mind for thoughts, whereas western meditation, founded on Christianity, wants to fill it with ideas of god. However, the mind is not a fact but a make-believe. Therefore, whether it is empty or full of god is imagined. But most need to believe the mind is real, and they can change it via meditation into something better, thus in control of their life.

But meditation is a con trick thought up by the rogue consciousness of the self.* It promises you that thoughts, at least the negative ones, will disappear when you meditate so that there is nothing to prevent you from living in a merry-go-round world. Nevertheless, most people have the opposite experience. They experience more thoughts when they start to meditate, thus not feeling at peace. Should they dare to complain to their teacher about that, they are told it is part of the healing process.

However, there is nothing to heal other than the sick belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One. But, unfortunately, meditation does not do that. On the contrary, it requires more than one to meditate, and you do it to fix the problems the belief in more than one entails, thus enhancing the belief. Besides, since oneness is all-inclusive and meditation is based on excluding something, meditating denies oneness.

The belief in an illusion is undone when you look closely at it. Hence you will not have the belief in being some definitive undone with eyes closed but wide open. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Therefore, since being inclusive confirms oneness, you do not reject something judged as wrong, such as irritation. Instead, you include it by completely being it. That may seem unbearable, but if you keep being nothing but that, there is not something left to define irritation. Thus it fades away. Therefore, if the irritation was perceived as linked to your allergy, you are less sensitive to that without irritation.

Read about not being exclusive but inclusive in hack #3.1 Inclusiveness sets you free from duality. And read about the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection in hack #4.3 The toxic mix of physical and non-physical issues.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Meditating to make thoughts and feelings go away confirms the belief that they are something, whereas experiencing them as they are, reveals they are nothing because the experience does not last.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Thoughts have no power unless you exclude particular ones to establish you as someone because this makes you a victim of thoughts.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since that which is you is the formlessness of oneness, being centred, balanced, or anything else requiring a shape is an illusion.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If you meditate to find peace inside, you perceive inside and outside as separated. Hence you enhance what prevents you from being at peace.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Thoughts only seem disturbing when you believe they are yours. That you do because you need them to prove you are what you want to be. Therefore, when there is no wish to be something special, thoughts are uninter. Hence hence no need to get rid of them. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Meditating to get rid of separation is a con trick to fool you into believing it is real. There is nothing but oneness since it is formless, thus endless. Consequently, there is not something to change other than the belief that a world where there seems to be more than one is real. You can undo that by pretending to be someone in such a world because what and where you pretend to be is unreal. See hack #1.3 Pretending to be someone definitive is liberation.

In other words, you neither have to restrain nor transform yourself. Instead, you change your perception of what and where you appear.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the old days in India, those who came to live in the Ashrams were savages behaving very egoistically. They raped women and beat others to get what they wanted. Thus meditation was invented so they could learn to control themselves. And since the mantras have remained the same or updated with something similar, the purpose of meditation still seems to be controlled.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state of being, and the teacher does not have something you do not have. All that is needed is that which makes it possible to experience a world where there seems to be more than one, namely that which is One, and since it is formless, thus endless, you have nothing but that.
