A while ago I was contemplating the first five bodyparts in my Satipatthana practice, when I came to the fingernails and started visualizing the nails on my hands, after some time I had some sort of flash of insight, it's hard to put into words but it's best described as seeing there is no name written on them, like in not belonging to anybody,and something like; it's blind and doesn't hear anything. It only grows... It was really clear for a short period and then I got so excited that it disappeared.
After some practice I now can see it when I want and in more things beside my nails, in curbstones or trees for example.
I wonder if I'm on the right track with it though, I don't know if it's really anatta or a counterpart sign or maybe just a daydream,although it felt really true, as if this was the way it was. Has anybody here had the same experience at some time?
I don't have a teacher or Sangha, only the internet and books, that's why I'm asking it here....
