No abiding self - (is this not a reason to enjoy life, live it up, do what you wanna do,have fun etc
I believe there are two ways to look at 'no self'
When i first realized that nothing lasts (including MYSELF) and that there is nothing that is MINE' , I understood the reasons not to 'desire' or crave, or to 'label things as MINE' or even dwell too much if i lost something or if a loved one died (even when my grandpa died, i accepted it well)
I completely understood that there is No abiding self..
One day i will not be here........ And thats when it hit me; thats when i realized and kept repeating it to myself "one day i am not going to be here"
so why not do the best i can do, achieve what i can whilst i am here, look my very best, drink, eat, have a great time, want holidays, save for holidays, book holidays, see the world, crave things, desire more, work hard for them , GET THEM, show them off, be proud of myself , etc etc... The list goes on...
I believe i am only here once! (I might be wrong but i also could be right) and chances are, (realistically) i am right and we are only here once!
So perhaps understanding NO SELF is an inspiration to enjoy life, and not take 'spiritual pactice' so serious...
