A lot of good breath meditation tonight that flowed into no self mediation. I ran a route I have never run tonight. Since I am working toward this as slow as my patience will allow I decided to go back out on the streets and get away from the Death Match stadium (Start Stadium). I google mapped a route that basically started and ended near the flat that totaled 8.5.
This all carried over from yesterdays run and how nothing stays the same from day to day. So extrapolating, probably wrongly, but maybe one day someone will educate me, if there is no self in that context, really the person running the route today would be different every step of the way and therefore may not have any idea where or what we running.
This gets me to thinking, if an arahant were to start running, couldn't he just keep running? If there is no self, the only thing that stops him/her is the body shutting down and since he/she would only notice that as a pleasant, neutral or unpleasant feeling.
Too much I think, but I wonder if it is a correct application of no self?
Now for a little craving, I wish I was an arahant, I'd do a Forest Gump.
