The stream of consciousness is interrupted temporarily at the time of death, for some practitioners it is not interrupted at all but is experienced as clear light. But I seem to get the feeling that you mean that you fear losing this particular combination of skhanda. Why concern yourself with that? Since you were born you have experienced an infinite combination of skhanda, death is just another stage in this everchanging and impermanent group of processes which we call "me".I'd rather not interrupt the stream of my consciousness
1-Phowa or rainbow body,guarantee the continuation of the stream of consciousness after death of body?
The simplest practice is the six syllable mantra or the mantra of Amitabha connected with a strong and heartfelt aspiration for the being to be reborn in the pure land of Potala or Dewachen. The Dewachen aspiration prayer is another option.2-If still meet death on my way,I should learn some practices
which could quickly and quietly perform the scene of the accident?
Really? And where exactly can I find this unchanging observer? Because it seems to me that the observer, the observed and the act of observing are actually constantly changing. If the observer never changed then they would not be capable of experiencing, they would be stuck with their very first experience forever.Snowid wrote:I do not think my own personality is my true self.
My true self is the observer which never changes

Which are constantly changing.Snowid wrote:In time and space.
And when you are not present ? So awareness changes, thus it cannot be unchanging, unless the observer is something other than awareness?But it does not change your sense of existence.
When I am present
when I know that I'm
I mean the same as you
when you feel that you exist.
Really? Exactly the same? So when you were angry yesterday, you are angry now, and have always been angry? When you saw an image yesterday, you are observing that image now, and have observed it forever? Somehow, I don't think so.Circumstances are changing around us
but yesterday when I existed
I felt the same as now
and an hour ago, a minute ago.
I felt the same thing per an hour, tomorrow or year later.
We feel our existence the same way always
Which are constantly changing.
So when you were angry yesterday, you are angry now, and have always been angry?

As long as there is an "I" you are trapped in dualism, impermanent, confined by (and defining) time and space. You cannot be inside and outside of something at the same time. Impossible.Snowid wrote:But I'm not time and space
I'm inside them.
I'm a stream of consciousness in time and space.
Whose feelings are you observing/experiencing if not your own?Anger is a feeling that is not me.
I'm not feeling whose I experience
I am an observer of feelings.
A consciouness other than the consciousness it already displays? Seperate to it?I do not know,may the observer is awareness
or perhaps observer have consciousness.
Awareness is constantly changing. Thus the observer is constantly changing.Pictures which I observed is not me.
I mean observer awareness of existence.
Apparently according to who?Self-reflection which animals apparently do not have.
Denying the existence of an eternal unchanging observer is not the same as positing non-being.

I know that
However,knowledge about that
then after death I will be only cause of creation someone new
this is mediocre consolation for me.
If the observer does not exist
who dies, who experien Bardo,who is born?

You cannot enter twice in the same river.
Complete realization guarantees total liberation from all hopes and fears.

River is always water
Water is always H2O
H2O never changes
If we change the H2O
it will not be water

You mean unemotionally indifference?
