5.2 You feel stressed from fending off the infinite speed of oneness

Updated January 8, 2023

Only in a world where there seems to be more than one can you search for the meaning of life. But it is not to be found there or anywhere else because it takes more than one to find something, and life is that which is One. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The way letters are put together in various configurations makes it possible to attribute a special meaning to each shape. And when they are organised in rows divided by dots and commas, like in this article, they seem to make up a story written by somebody other than ourselves, thus confirming we are somebody in a world where there is more than one. But since the story that seems to prove this is pieced together of shapes attributed a meaning by yourself, the story is made by you. Consequently, it does not prove there is more than yourself.

Let us imagine the letters that make up the shapes that appear to establish a world where there is more than one being the same letters making up oneness. However, since there is no separation in oneness, the letters that oneness consists of cannot be distinguished from each other, thus not organised into shapes that, when added together in specific ways, seem to establish a story of a world where there is more than one.

Some claim the amount of info coming from digital media makes them stressed. But that is probably because they sort the news per a particular philosophy. Therefore, it is not the amount of information but organising it to support a specific opinion that makes them stressed. Fortunately, the more stressed you get, the faster it disappears if you do not slow down its pace but use it to ignite a take-off into the empty breath. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A WORLD DEFINED BY TIME AND SPACE IS A SLOWED-DOWN VERSION OF THE FORMLESSNESS OF ONENESS
It is not only because there is no space to separate the letters making up oneness that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because everything moves so fast that time stands still (read more about that here). Hence, it is impossible to organise them linearly – or in any other way.

In the context of our story about that which is One versus a world where there seems to be more than one, you could say the latter is a fantasy of slowing down oneness until there appears to be space between the letters, which therefore have a shape of their own that over time can be combined in different combinations attributed each their meaning. Thus space and time establish separation as real and the formlessness of oneness as unreal.

In other words, the slowing down of oneness is an attempt to turn formlessness into thoughts representing specific shapes you can manipulate to your liking in a world where there seems to be more than one.

Consequently, you do not get back to oneness by slowing down the speed of thoughts via meditation or something else pacifying. Nor is the way to oneness revealed by understanding this or anything else because recognising something calls for more than one, thus enhancing the belief in more than one.

Unlike the Enlightenment of that which is One, the empty breath does not erase your memories of being someone. But since the empty breath resides in the nothingness from where the brain makes the experiences you believe establish you as someone, the empty breath knows you are nothing. Thus, with the empty breath by your side, the experiences do not establish you as someone substantial in a tangible world – like within the context of such a world, what you appear to be in the virtual world of a game is not perceived as real.

A JOURNEY WITHOUT DISTANCE TAKES NO TIME
It is not a fact but a make-believe that you are someone definitive. The illusion falls apart when you do not attribute meaning to the letters in this article or the other things making up your story of being someone because when shapes make no sense, there is nothing to separate them, thus nothing to experience.

Since there is no more than oneness, nobody has ever left it. Thus going back takes no time.

The fastest way to get there is to welcome the Enlightenment of that which is One (see hack #6.1 The Enlightenment of that which is One). It promptly and relentlessly erases everything ever experienced. Hence there are no memories from which an image of you as someone definitive can be recalled. Thus not someone who seems to hide, there is no more than oneness because it is formless, thus endless.

Should you prefer to have the belief in being someone undone over time, you can connect with the empty breath (read more about that here). Once is enough because it does not know of separation. So even though you may forget the empty breath, it slowly but surely undo the belief in being someone definitive while assisting you in enjoying this belief.

Of course, you could contemplate this yourself. But it quickly turns into a joyless debate of something instead of being in the bliss of nothing entailed by the wordlessness of the empty breath.

To undo the belief in separation, you must give up attributing meaning to anything, so your apparent different experiences do not appear to make a difference. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

WHEN NOTHING IS NOT PERCEIVED AS SOMETHING
The change of size and weight from hefty to almost nothing – for example, vinyl to CD to MP3 to streaming, and computer to smartphones to wearables – is a reminder that reality is sizeless because it is that which is One, and it takes more than one to have a shape.

For the same reason, oneness cannot be seen. That is why the purpose of the empty breath is not to reveal oneness but that what you see is nothing you perceive as something. In other words, when you do not perceive what you see as something, it does not seem to hide the formlessness of oneness – like when not perceiving a dream as something, it does not seem to hide you are in your bed. The empty breath accomplishes this while you simultaneously enjoy experiencing nothing as something.

Far from Home

Updated February 6, 2023

This is a pic from the late evening on the island, where I stay nowadays. It would be plain stupid to wear a warm sweater, as I would do in my native country in the evening. Everything differs from the memory of life, that I have from my home.

This is an image from a late evening on the island, where Alexius stays for part of the year. Everything there differs from his life in his native country, where he definitely would have to wear a warm sweater on an evening this time of the year. However, it would be plain stupid to do that on an evening like in the picture. This illustrates that when you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you forget about oneness, so you can play the game of more than one. One way to do that is to pretend to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE IS ENTERTAINING:
Alexius’ native country is Denmark, but nowadays, he also spends time on a Spanish island close to Africa. So when he is there, he has to forget about the minimalistic ways of Denmark and instead convert to the more maximalistic way of Spain. He also has to adapt to a new language, change to a new currency and many other things. Even though he seems to be good at it and having fun doing it, deep inside, he is still Danish and feels like he is far from home when spending time on the Spanish island.

This is not to say that one place is better than the other. The above is a metaphor to illustrate that if you are reading this, you are not in a spiritual but a physical world, thus, the currency of spirituality is useless. You need tangible food, clothes and friends to survive in a material world.

You can, of course, choose not to do that and return to the formlessness of spirituality. But as long as you appear to be someone in a world defined by time and space, by all means, go for it. There is nothing to lose. That which is you is still the formlessness of spirituality and will always be, even though it seems to be a substantial being far from home in the physical world for some time.

When the apparent difference between what you like and dislike does not make a difference, the belief in being someone definitive is being undone.

Besides, you do not need to return home. You have never left it. That is impossible because oneness is formless, thus endless, so there is no more than that which is One. Hence it is only the belief that it is possible to be and have more than that which is One you need to undo.

Metaphorically, it is as if you, from oneness, stream a fictional video of more than one in which you pretend to be someone that is felt real due to artificial sensors. See, A world where there seems to be more than one is to be compared to a movie of oneness played in slow motion.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not fulfil your dreams. On the contrary. All dreams must be called. This happens automatically if you pretend to be someone because then there is noone to dream about a better future.

When the fictional video is finished, you play it repeatedly until you are pleased with what you pretend to be. Then, you forget all about streaming and that there ever was a video. And there never was because the video and the world of duality it seems to reflect is make-believe.

Playing the video repeatedly, hoping it gets better, is as harmless as believing Santa Claus will bring you a present. So there is no reason not to enjoy the excitement while it lasts. Especially when you start to grasp that it is a deception.

That sets you free to enjoy it as a magic show in which you respond with love and compassion, cry in desperation or whatever instinctively pops up at the moment, just like you instinctively react to a ball coming to you by returning it.

To conclude: As long as you appear to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one, give it your best shot. If you skip doing something, you may want to keep playing the game until you get it right. It is over when everything seems enjoyable in a world where there seems to be more than one when everything is enjoyable.

You cannot prove a world where there seems to be more than one is unreal because nothing unreal can be by that which is real, namely that which is One since it is formless, thus endless.

PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE IS FREEDOM:
It takes time to learn to pretend to be a specific person. For example, when Alexius was a child, he spent years learning how to pretend to be a Danish person in a cold climate. Nowadays, he is learning how to pretend to be a Spanish person in a warm environment when spends time there.

Thus Alexius is learning how to pretend to be a person who speaks loud, shouts at waiters, enjoys having breakfast in a bar around 11 AM, thinks 8 PM is too early for dinner and does not say ‘thank you.’ He is also learning to pretend to be someone who greets a woman by kissing her on both cheeks. Besides, he tries to learn not to be politically correct but says nigger and mixes things in non-established ways.

These things seem to define a Spanish person in the public room – at least as seen from the perspective of someone formerly conditioned only to be Danish.

Suffice to say, every country defines how to be someone in their part of the world. And if you want to be acknowledged as somebody there, you must pretend to be someone who lives by the local rules.

This also applies to smaller groups of people – even a love relationship, where the amount of love you seem to get depends on how good you are in pretending to be and have what the other one needs.

It is impossible for that which is you to feel happy or sad because it takes more than one to feel something and that which is you is not different from that which is One. However, imagining to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, it it seems possible to feel happy and sad.

Fortunately, the apparent difference between these or any other contrasting feelings does not make a difference, when tyou pretend to feel them. Thus they do not appear to to establish a world where there seems to be more than one as real.

Pretending to be someone definitive instead of believing it does not mean everything will work out how you expect. But it means that when something does not work out as planned and a feeling of sadness pops by, it feels OK because it is something you pretend to feel. That which is you is not sad. Neither anything else, because it is no different from that which is One, and it takes more than one to be aware of something.
