I have recently been reflecting on the doctrine of not-self and see that understanding soullessness reveals the illusion of the ego. When I came to this realization things were in a different light. Nobody was higher than someone else on this sort of egotistical ladder constructed by modern society. Today I was reflecting on not-self and impermanence and remember experiencing bliss and just having a big smile on my face the more I realized that these concepts are in actuality, reality.
There was no me or he or she. When I experienced this moment of bliss I realized that even though I was still living the relative truth/reality I may have also touched the ultimate reality as explained in the doctrine of the Two Truths. However the problem I encountered was that after this experience I had to speak to friends who have not yet realized there is no self and still are immersed in the illusory world of "self". It discomforts me because many times I feel alone because of this and often have a higher tendency to get sucked back into the relative truths/reality. If anyone has some extra insight into the experience I described, more information on the two truths, or any advice please comment!
All the best,
