CANCELLEX Insisting on differences is stressful

Updated May 26, 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.

Compiling letters in various configurations, particular shapes can be attributed as meaningful and others as meaningless. When supposedly meaningful shapes are organised together divided by dots and commas, like in this article, they seem to make up a story written by somebody other than the reader, thus confirming there is more than One. But since the different arrangements of letters making up the story is interpreted by the reader, it is made by the reader. Consequently, the story does not prove there is more than One.

Let us imagine that oneness consists of endless letters and some of those make up the shapes appearing in a world where there is more than one are the same. However, since there is no separation in oneness, the letters 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.

But it is not only because there is no space to separate the letters in oneness that they cannot be differentiated from each other, but also because in oneness everything moves so fast that there is no time (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, you slow down oneness 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. Fortunately, this fantasy is easily undone when you reverse it, thus speeding up thoughts.

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.

It is not a fact but a make-believe that you are someone definitive. It is exposed when you do not attribute meaning to the different combinations of letters in this article because then there are nothing to separate them, thus nothing to confirm you as someone definitive.

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 Duality Hack #10 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.

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.

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

Pretending to be someone is entertaining

Updated May 19, 2023

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 would have to wear a warm sweater on an evening this time of the year. However, doing that on an evening like in the picture would be plain stupid. That illustrates that when you appear to be in a world where there seems to be more than one, you forget about oneness to 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.

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 another currency and many other things. Even though he seems to be good at it and having fun doing it, deep inside, he is Danish and feels far from home when spending time on the Spanish island.

That is a metaphor to illustrate that when you are in a world defined by time and space, the currency of spirituality is because it is formless. In a material world, you need tangible food, clothes and friends to survive.

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 inside a capsule of time and space 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.

If what and where you experiece to be is something you pretend, each moment is entertaining. Thus there is no need to dream about a better one. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Alexius’ Duality Hacks do not fulfil your dreams of being special. On the contrary. They undo all your dreams about being someone. For example, by helping you to pretend being someone. Therefore, since what you pretend to be, you are not, there is nobody to dream about being someone specific.

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. Then, 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 grasp that it is a deception.

When that sets in, you are 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 defined by time and space, give it your best shot. If you skip doing something, you keep playing the game of being someone in a capsule of time and space. It is over when everything seems enjoyable.
