Ultra Manifestation

by Mathew John (2020-03-16)

There's a Buddhist saying "no self, no problem". Ultra Manifestation Review While it sounds simple enough, I think it may be one of the hardest things to accomplish in the human experience. Can you talk a little about this?I don't think it's that hard. First of all, "no self" doesn't mean there is no self, haha. So the "no problem" is jumped at a little too fast I'm afraid. Especially in American culture where people tend to be materialistic philosophically. I don't mean running to the mall, but philosophically, you see? The idea that somehow "no self, no problem"- I don't exist because I don't have a self- would be a mistaken understanding. However, the selflessness teaching is not that hard to understand. What it means is a type of self that people feel they have, like a fixed, unchanging identity. Either they know they have it, or for some, they feel they need to seek it, and possibly have an experience where they feel like they found something. That type of fixed, unchanging, essential self, or absolute self doesn't exist. That's what "no self" means. However, the being that discovers their freedom from that kind of rigid self-identity does exist, and does have a self, a relational self that changes all the time, with what we call a conventional self.
