What we call my-self, is actualy memory of expriance of this body. Body and mind, like all fenomena is actualy sankhara, the product of kamma, the product of causes and concequances, it moves by itself, like a rain drop on lotus leaf.

There is no importance if we call it no-self or not-self, because dhammas will continue to move by itself, even if you call it myself, or anatta, or chair, or president of United States, or what you want.

Stop to loose your time, it's stupid, just see it. The Dhamma is simple to observe, just put all fantasy in the trash, and abserve dhammas. It's all.

Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

"Self" is a fairy tale told by a ghost to its imaginary friend.
