The psychological zone is anywhere but in something solid [draft]

What you believe in being is solely an image in the psychological sphere. It has nothing to do with the body, which feels attacked if you try to adjust it to the image you have made of yourself in the psychological sphere.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The brain creates the psychological sphere, the body, and the world of duality. But just like you do not drive a car in the factory where it is made, you do not experience the psychological sphere, the body, and the world of duality in the brain. Instead, the body is experienced as something substantial in a tangible world. It seems more problematic to determine where the psychological zone is experienced because most try to integrate it with the body.

But that is not how the brain has set it up. The psychology sphere is immaterial, thus the opposite of the material body. They interact to define each other, like breathing in and out, but they can never be combined. If you accept this twofoldness, the duality flow continues uninterrupted, and you feel vigorous.

When you swim, you feel the water touching your body. However, the body cannot blend with water. It will kill the body if it gets inside it. Likewise, the body can enjoy what is going on in the psychological sphere, but it will fight it if you try to integrate it with the solidness of the body.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

To get into the duality flow, you do not use the perception ‘it is what it is’ on a house you see but on your reaction to it, which is in the mental zone where it is revealed as twofold. Hence you are in the duality flow.

However, your reaction may trigger old feelings projected onto the body. In that case, you do not perceive your response to the house but to your upset body as ‘it is what it is.’ Thus having your reaction revealed as twofold.

Should you not notice any reaction, you may already have perceived your reaction as ‘I know what it is,’ thus establishing it as a fact and not a feeling. Read more about this mix-up here. If you want to undo that, you perceive your reaction to I know what it is, as ‘it is what it is.’

In other words, it is not about finding the cause of your problem but perceiving your reaction to it as ‘it is what it is’ because the root of the problem is that you are not living by duality, which is corrected by having a twofold reaction to the experience of duality.

In Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings, the psychological sphere or zone or area is also called the mental sphere or zone. It is airy, thus anywhere but inside something substantial. Hence bringing back into awareness the psychological feelings you have projected onto the solidness of your body is not done by facing them in the body but in the non-material mental zone.

In this airy sphere, everywhere around you, a psychological feeling does not seem heavy, like when imagined combined with the body. Thus one look at it is enough to make it vanish and reveal its opposite. For example, one look at hate replaces it with love, which, when looked at, replaces hatred. And so they go on constantly interacting to define each other.

That is the way of duality. Everything comes in pairs of opposing opposites. Being in sync with this twofoldness, you feel complete in your psychological zone. But not if you eliminate one part of a duality pair by projecting it onto your body or the world or imagining uniting the opposing parts.

The opposing elements in a duality pair can neither be united nor separated because they depend on each other to be defined, like two sides of a coin. Therefore, messing with the interaction of the opposing elements in a duality pair, you break up duality, thus feeling broken.

In other words, if you want to feel complete in a world of duality, you do not hold onto a specific thought or feeling. Instead, you view it as part of a duality pair where it interacts with its opposing element to define what it is and be defined by that. This movement, called the duality flow, makes you feel complete, thus with no need to hide non-physical issues in the body. Hence the biological system can keep the body sound as it was made to.

Defocusing is beneficial in not focusing on the body as the problem but sensing it in the airy psychological area. Read more about defocusing in the articles The undoing of separation, thus time and space and The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them. And read more about duality pairs and the duality flow in hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

It is also beneficial to remember that although a physical problem can be severe, it is most likely far from as problematic as it appears when combined with psychological feelings. Thus there is no need to worry that much.

The paradox in trying to heal a psychosomatic disorder is that it reinforces the fear of the physical symptoms, thus the impression that psychological and physical issues are linked and result in a psychosomatic illness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When physical symptoms of illness trigger psychological memories of endangerment and those are imagined as linked, the physical symptoms are perceived to cause a threat. Hence a fusion of physical and psychological reality seems to have been established. However, the body is material, thus unable to integrate non-material issues except in fantasy. Therefore, to heal the psychosomatic disorder problem, you must look at where the imagination is made, namely in the mental zone.

One look is enough to undo the imaginary link because fantasies are fleeting when you do not imagine the body to establish them as substantial. Since the same applies to all thoughts and feelings in the mental zone, another look at the feeling of endangerment is enough to make it go.

However, the physical pain in the body remains the same when the psychological issue is dissolved. But maybe not for long because when the physical symptom is not imagined mixed up with a psychological problem, the body’s biological system is free to deal with the physical symptom as it was made to do.

To sum it up: When you appear sick, and your concern about the physical symptom triggers a past sense of danger that you interpret as caused by the present physical symptom, you develop a psychosomatic disorder. But since the body cannot be fused with non-physical issues, this imagined combo is only in the mental zone where just one look at it dissolves the supposed link.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The psychological sphere is airy, so everything there is fleeting unless projected on something substantial.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

The differentiation between physical and non-physical matters occurs automatically when you are the basic self. It relates to the stream of thoughts coming from the brain as it is and not as it should per a body-mind philosophy.

If you do not feel complete, you have broken a duality pair, which is impossible because, without them, you cannot experience being someone in a world of duality. In other words, feeling incomplete is like having vertigo. It is not a reflection of the world but your state of mind. If you want to correct that, you only have to remind yourself that everything is twofold. You can do that by perceiving your reaction to feeling incomplete as ‘it is what it is’ because that reveals your response is not singular but twofold.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

When you do not project psychological issues onto the body, they do not seem hidden from your awareness. Hence you can perceive your reaction to them as ‘it is what it is,’ revealing them as twofold. Therefore, since there are no specific feelings, there is no suffering and, therefore, no misery to project onto the body.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Brain fog comes from projecting a particular psychological issue onto your body because everything comes in pairs of opposites in a world of duality, so when one part of a psychological pair is imagined to be somewhere else than in the psychological sphere, you feel blurry.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

It is a waste of time looking for your psychological emotion in the body because it is solely physical, thus without anything psychological or spiritual. You could also say that the body is visible, whereas non-physical issues are invisible, and visibility and invisibility do not blend.

So if you have projected emotional issues onto the body with the assumption that you can hide them there, you better start correcting this fantasy by recognising them where they were conceived, namely in the psychological sphere. Facing them there, they gently open up and reveal they are not singular but twofold. Thus there is no specific psychological issue to bother you.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

If pain in the mind is not denied the words that seems to cause the pain cannot hurt, but words projected onto the body – your own or somebody else´s – seems to be able to hurt and confirm the believe, that you are a person to be defined by time and space.

Feelings or thoughts you do not like, you hide from your awareness by imagining they can be dumped in the body. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Think of a movie as a metaphor for the physical. You cannot see the mental zone in it. It is something you add. Yet, it does not change anything but your perception of the film.

In other words, in the context of the world where we appear, everything is made of matter. However, contrary to a body in a movie, your body has feelings – but only physical ones. If it seems to have psychological feelings, you have projected them onto the body to make it appear more significant or the emotions more substantial. It could also be that you want to hide psychological issues from your awareness behind something physical, as described above.

But just like nothing changes in a movie, regardless of what you project onto it, nothing is transformed in your body when you project non-bodily issues on it. It only seems so if you envision that mentally.

Please be aware this metaphor is made within the reality of duality. In non-duality, there is nothing tangible or intangible because there is no division. However, appearing in a world of duality, you must live by to leave it. That does not mean you have to make an effort – like, in a board game, you move by the dice. And when the meaning you assign to the result is perceived as ‘it is what it is,’ you see your response is twofold, wherefore you are playing the game of duality. Thus able to leave it. See hack #4.4 The duality flow goes to non-duality.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

In the psychological sphere, you soon learn you are loved as you are because you are created by the brain, and it loves the way it has set you up. That makes the body relax. But since it only understands material matters, relaxation is not caused by love but by you feeling wanted, thus not projecting unwanted thoughts and feelings onto the body or using it to prove you are worthy.

Meditation is a con trick

Updated February 6, 2023

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 who meditate 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. That 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?

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Thoughts seem troublesome when you want to use them to construct a specific image of yourself, so you try to control them by meditating. Fortunately, when you do not want that, there is no need for thoughts to prove anything. Hence they are not bothersome.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Meditating to make thoughts and feelings go away confirms the belief that they are something, whereas seeing them as they are, namely, fleeting, they are nothing.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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.

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. Nevertheless, most need to believe the mind is real, and they can change it via meditation into something better, thus being 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. However, most people have the opposite experience. They experience more thoughts when they start to meditate, thus not feeling at peace. If they 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 cannot 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 that belief. Besides, since oneness is all-inclusive and meditation is based on excluding negativity to achieve positivity, meditating denies oneness.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Thoughts only seem disturbing when you believe they are yours. You do that because you need them to prove you are what you want to be. Therefore, thoughts are uninteresting when there is no wish to be something special. 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 there 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 refrain nor transform yourself. Instead, you change your perception of what and where you appear.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

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 that is the same kind of meditation used nowadays.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Meditation does not give you lasting peace or transform you into a higher state. And the teacher does not have something you do not have. All that is needed to be peaceful 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.

NOTES:

Life is neither a cause nor an effect. There is no karma!

Updated February 5, 2023

If the car in this image seems to make you feel something special, you are constructing this effect yourself. The picture has no power to cause you to feel anything at all. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

You get an immediate physical effect when you hit a nail on the wall. It is not caused by the past but by the present. Should you bang your finger while hammering the nail and remember you once hit somebody else, it has nothing to do with that. Slamming the finger is an accident. Nothing in your past caused it, nor is there anything set in motion for the future apart from going to the doctor if the finger is severely damaged.

If you want causal connections to imply, what and where you believe in being has a special meaning, you must invent them.

However, to suffer from bodily pain because you accidentally hit your finger does not sound adventurous. But if you can connect the pain with something from your childhood, you have a basis for a story of cause and effect in which you seem to be part of something with a greater meaning, thus having a special purpose.

Since life is oneness which is formless, thus endless, life cannot have been caused by something or cause anything. Consequently, everything in a world where there seems to be more than one is lifeless, hence meaningless.

Whenever you look for something that seems to justify your current state of mind, you fabricate cause and effect – also called karma. As it is an imagination, you feel its impact the moment you imagine this connection. There is no other karma than this imagined connection. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

On top of that, this construction of cause and effect makes it possible to justify any thought, emotion or action as ‘caused’ by something in the past, wherefore your life seems coherent and meaningful. But that is not life. It is that which is One, and it takes more than one to be cohesive and meaningful. In other words, you return to life by ignoring the concept of cause and effect.

You cannot know why this picture is here. Therefore, since any reason is made up, the cause is fictional, thus the effect. In other words, what you see is make-believe – likewise, any other world experience. Nobody knows the cause of it. There is a theory about a big bang which created something out of nothing, which sounds ridiculous. Besides, there is neither nothing nor something because it requires more than one to be anything, and there is no more than that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

APPENDIX:
The foundation of Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings is that the world is unreal. And since you are real, you are not there. One way to know this is to look at the actions of others. You cannot see what has caused them. Therefore, the cause is thought up. And since only what is unreal needs to be imagined, the cause is fake. Consequently, the effect it seems to cause is an illusion.

You could also say that since the effect does not seem to have a cause and there is no effect without a course, what appears to be an effect of something is an illusion. And since nobody knows the cause of the world – apart from the weird claim that an explosion of nothing, called the big bang, created a universe of something – the experience of being in it is fictive, thus something you pretend.
