How about believing their is a no self? 

That would be the same as believing there is a self. Allow me to illustrate my point with a story.

Once upon a time I was high as fuck. I was sitting on my couch contemplating the nature of enlightenment when seemingly out of nowhere, Leo Gura appeared in front of me. He started rattling off his typical spiel. And then he said “you don’t get it, I’m dead. The only way I’m able to be this authentic is because I’m fucking dead!” So I sincerely considered the possibility that Leo was dead. As I was considering this, he morphed into a ghostly figure. He looked exactly like what I would imagine somebody would look like if they returned from beyond the grave in an immaterial form. And the kicker here is that I genuinely completely and totally didn’t know the difference between this ghost version of Leo and the real Leo. At this point, the realization hit me like a ton of bricks that I had been wasting a whole shit load of time trying to uncover the secrets of the universe from the nonsense ramblings of a dead guy. What followed this realization was the most god-honest moment of clarity I’ve ever experienced in my life, and all I could think was “dear god, what the actual fuck have I been doing with my life?”

The end

This is absurd! If there’s no self then who’s doing all this consciousness work!?

Who attains & embodies enlightenment!!


It would seem that somebody has forgotten his own talking points. Allow me to remind you. Selves don’t get enlightened.

Anybody who believes there’s a self should be given a stern talking to, and possibly a spanking. 🙂

This is a belief on no self. 




If you can understand these sentences=That's self.
