Bhava (existence) is within the mind (rather than a next life).

This thread is about 'self', which is not Buddhism.

So which mind does Element expect next (with the break up of the current body)? Or when and how did he lost all his goodness? Will it become different?

(Maybe try to stick to the OP since teaching it others. But that is of course "just" a sacrify and up to your decision, yet merit might have impact on bhava)

The existence of a thing in moment t1 is the effect of the existence of that thing in moment t0. So all things are momentary since they change from moment to moment. This is called 'subtle impermanence'. I am a thing that is momentary.

The cessation of a thing's existence is called 'coarse impermanence'. I will cease to exist when I die.

My rebirth from moment to moment depends on whether there is knowing or not. I.e. knowing or not-knowing determine the quality of my momentary rebirths.

Good, so what does Ground guess to know and possible do not lose with the break up of his "current" body and where does he think will his knowledge lead him to. Will he have the control that at this moment in the next will certain knowledge arise.

With the break up of this "current" body I will be 'reborn' :wink1: as dust and/or mud.  :fu:

I do not believe anything but I do either validly know or don't know.

From your believer's perspective you may interprete my words as nihilism or as the words of one having attained liberation. Why the latter? Because one that is liberated will not be reborn.  :fu:

Dude, you are totally not liberated.  Not a chance.  Not even close.

Sometimes I pronounce the word Arahat differently. Sometimes it comes out as "Arsehat".

No problem if not believing in life before and after and no need to participate if even annoyed. If having the mood to step into meta, try to turn it at least to the OP and maybe also to share a reflection. Of cource that is exclusively up to your generosity, which might have impact of future lives space and wealth, honor and respect.

Taken that the wandering on will possible not overcome this existence, what kind of existence do you espect after this? How do you think you can archive it and if resume till today, do you think that all is already good prepeared to do not fail?

If you only knew that such thoughts are actually an insurmountable obstacle for your liberation.  :fu:

ground, I think you are liberated, I just want you to teach me in an easy and understandable way how I too can be liberated. Can you also tell me what liberation is like? What are the results or symptoms? For example, if liberation is posting on freesangha, I may be liberated too!

Sometimes it sounds like many of you are saying "everyone is automatically receiving the same result upon death" which seems to make any particular method or effort of no real great use or benefit ultimately.

I don't know what to expect next, but my hope is for either full permanent liberation or a place of no return which accelerates me there or is safe. My concern or fear is any sort of bad or horrible suffering or horrific experiences, and I don't really want to suffer continuously, I want a good state that is lasting and increased freedom and powerful ease. What I do, is all with this desire, to make this life good and any life good and best of all.
