DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

To me ,my experience is a permanent self ,a center-point who is experiencing things

i have emotions

i have a body

i have a mind

my thoughts

my dreams

my personality or individuality

And i clearly feel that there is an "I" exists


But all the scriptures ,either it be Vedanta or Buddhism whatever ,says this "I" is an illusion ,or as daniel said

"I is not a sensation, I is a pattern, a set of shifting qualities, and it is this strange, poorly perceived back and forth oscillation between that pattern of sensations and the other interspersed patterns of sensations that gives the appearance that this pattern is watching that pattern, but they are actually just two patterns oscillating, interplaying, and nothing more than that "


Now what i am thinking like ."Stream Entry" is the time when one first tasted the enlightenment

So this real experience of "No-Self" pops in at the time of stream entry ?,The "I" or the"Ego" is destroyed completely?

I am not talking about higher concentration states,rather permanent state of " No-I'ness" happens only when one is in Higher Paths than in stream entry?

just curious
