Inclusiveness is the bliss of nothing

Updated May 21, 2023

It is best to acknowledge both the good and evil parts of one’s personality because they cancel out each other when they meet. Hence it is impossible to be someone definitive. You achieve the same by fully including evil because then there is nothing left to define it, Thus no evil to define goodness.  Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Once upon a time, Alexius assumed that if he justified feeling annoyed with the world, his irritation would be replaced by relaxation. But it was stressful to always look for something outside him to blame for the discomfort inside him. So the result was not relaxation.

Fortunately, he recognised that if he included irritation by being it to such an extent that he was nothing but that, there was not something to contrast it, wherefore, it could not be categorised, thus, not experienced as a specific feeling. And since relaxation is defined by irritation, both feelings turned into nothing. In short, he saw that the meaning of opposing elements is cancelled out when one of them is fully included. So, since he was neither definable as irritable nor relaxed, he forgot to see himself as someone separated from others. Hence he entered a state of not-knowing.

However, let us go back and elaborate on being fully inclusive. It does not mean you laboriously have to ensure every bit of irritation is included, but there is a willingness to be nothing but that. In other words, it is not about perfection but willingness. Should the latter be lukewarm, you are still fully inclusive if you are willing to include reluctance.

Inclusiveness has nothing to do with acceptance or forgiveness because inclusion leaves nothing to accept or forgive. Nor does it have anything to do with embracing or owning your feelings, as that enhances the belief in being someone definitive, thus separated, instead of undoing it. Inclusion is the absence of separation, which is the bliss of nothing.

Thus you enter a state of not-knowing with glimpses of the Enlightenment of that which is One in the form of ethereal light, celestial music, intangible sensibility or taste. Please read more about that in The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them.

When the internet is down, the thoughts about what is possible to accomplish in cyberspace fade out – so does the image of what you appear to be there.

It is a bit similar to a state of not-knowing. You fail to notice thoughts that seem to manifest you as separate from others. Therefore, since there is nobody to attribute an experience with a specific meaning, you are in the bliss of nothing.

But there is not someone to know that before a state of not-knowing is over, and you return to the conscious experience of being someone with sweet memories of the bliss that comes from not believing to be someone.

By not excluding but fully including your feeling of worthlessness, you are nothing but that. Therefore, you cannot be defined since there is no contrast to define your worthlessness. Hence you are in a state of not-knowing, which is pure bliss. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Being in a state of not-knowing does not mean you do not appear to be someone separated from others, but since the belief in being someone momentarily is undone, nobody cares about it. Hence thoughts and feelings are not considered tools for manifesting you as someone definitive but simply for navigating the world. For example, pain may prevent you from walking on a broken leg, and fear stops you from stepping out in front of a car.

In this context, pain does not cause suffering. Neither does fear scare you because when you do not use thoughts and feelings to establish yourself as someone definitive, they are not experienced to result in anything specific. In other words, when not used for something personal, thoughts and feelings do not appear to affect you or the world experienced outside of you, nor do they seem to have been caused by you or anything else.

Trying to understand inclusiveness and categorise when, why or how long you are in a state of not-knowing, before you return to the conscious experience of being someone defined time and space, complicate things. To be inclusive is simply to not be exclusive. Since the result is a state of not-knowing, you will not get there through understanding.

Since the experience of you as someone substantial in a tangible world defined by time and space is a construction of thoughts, it falls apart when inclusion undoes the perceived separation of thoughts into elements with different meanings. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

But as soon as thoughts and feelings are used to achieve something specific, such as unconditional love, you are out of a state of not knowing. Thus no longer in the bliss of nothing but the misery of something specific.

Neither will the bliss of nothing last if you remain in that state for more than 20 minutes, 45 at most, because without the constant acknowledgement of separation, the Enlightenment of that which is One set in. It erases the awareness of something as well as nothing.

Simply put, as long as you want to appear as someone in a world defined by time and space, you cannot stay too long at a time in a state of not-knowing. If you do that, the Enlightenment of that which is One set in, and it erases every memory of being someone in a world defined by time and space. But fortunately, the after-effect of just a split second in a state of not-knowing can last for years. Thus you can enjoy the belief in a world defined by time and space while gently having it undone. That is the purpose of Duality Hack #4 Inclusiveness frees you from duality. So read on if you would like to enjoy your favourite aspects of being someone definitive while slowly but surely including them, thus, again and again, entering a state of not-knowing. Read more about that state in A state of not-knowing and the after-effect.

Multitasking or defocusing facilitates a state of not-knowing. But this state can also arise from being deeply involved in something when it is not carried out per a special philosophy or an attempt to escape the present. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

If the boxes in Alexius’ Enlightened Non-Teachings disturb you from being focused and centred, they fulfill the purpose. To be in a state of not-knowing, you must forget about being centred, balanced and focused because those concepts are deeply founded in labelling experiences, thus separating them.

Fortunately multitasking takes care of that. It distracts the brain from focusing so that it becomes difficult to categorise an experience as different from another. Applying The taste of Oneness as desribe in The four aspects of Enlightenment and how to sample them helps you defocus. That said, this is meant to be applied for undoing the belief in being someone definitive, not for driving a car, for example.
