I “feel” no-self,
    I don’t “think” no-self.
    For me the whole experience transform into a “no-self” experience and it is the most obvious thing hence I think it cannot be missed.
    And u will know, u don’t really need validation.
    Mother Earth will validate u.
    If u wonder, is this anatta?
    most of the time it is not.
    Coz it is so energetic and obvious.
    The beingness that you used to feel “self” in your own body is now ..
    In the trees skies, grass, bed, other ppl, cars, rooms etc etc etc all over.
    The share the same beingness and energy as me.
    So I don’t feel “self” anymore.
    I feel vast, I feel “all”, I feel like expansive.
    Like the energy holding “me” open and not able to collapse back into my body.
    This Anatta experience is subconscious because if I wake up in the middle of the night
    I still feel the same way
    It is 24/7.
    The self is completely gone, like it has never been here before.
    It is a totally inside out experience, like one wear a shirt inside out.
    Hence buddhism feels against the grain if one has no insight but
    With Anatta insight and the xp turns inside out, it is easy and not against the grain anymore
    That’s my personal xp and opinion 🙂

    But I feel like If the person is not sure, it’s not it. Coz for me it is whoaaaa the world is inversed .. shouldn’t everyone whose world is inverse knows that obviously ?
    Then again I haven’t speak with many

    After this experience of selflessness , after the dissolution of this present body , will one be born again into this physical realm anymore ? Or the attachment to material world permanently severed and post-death existence and its experience is of different nature ?

    It depends on your level of attainment, from stream entry to arahant, or 1st bhumi to Buddha. Arahant who has overcome all ten fetters and 8th bhumi bodhisatta and above are free from cyclic rebirth.

    It is not important to hold on to any scriptural or traditional views . Whether there are 10 or 50 stages , in the end we either believe it or dont. Just let personal experience be our guiding light .
