ok - i thought about it again -

i looked in the map and sweden is very big - in israel i can go to every teacher every one in the country and its easy for me and not far - but not so easy in sweden and most countrys in the world


But you can advance on your own well - if you remember the do good (helping others and being nice) and avoid bad(5 precepts for example ) - than you can advance no doubt - just know it takes years to reach the sotapanna stage - and that lots of feelings you get when you practice dont mean that you are a sotapanna - they can mean you are advancing but they dont mean you are a sotapanna
sometimes people might see lights in meditation and they think they are sotapanna - but all that means is that they are seeing lights -

but the fact you feel calm is great and it means you are advancing good :thumbsup: just be careful not to think your enlightened

and continue advancing in the path - and just know that in the future if you have a chance to have a teacher than you should take it

good luck to you - and good luck to myself also :lol:

I told you in a PM will send again to make sure you see it -

but you can do fine without teacher (better with a teacher but you dont have to have one) - just dont expect that the fact you are getting calmer to mean your enlightened or a sotapanna -
but getting calmer means that your advancing but it still is a long road
