I think it's really an opinion on what constitutes 'me'. Sure what I am is nothing but fleeting phenomena coming in and out of existence. essentially, we are the sum of our parts, and yet the sum of those parts creates a sentient being.
Yes the sense of 'me', is an illusion created by the continuity of experience, and the ability to compare the present with the past(Via memory), and contemplate both the past and present against the future.
In my opinion you don't even need present and past for constructing an I. It is sufficient when awareness becomes aware of itself, even in the now to create that I-sense. You probably need memory for "me", since that includes a direction, and direction cannot exist without comparison, and comparison cannot exist without memory.
So here I am, fully aware of myself, my state of being, my memories, even aware that I am mostly an illusory creature. Still, I don't feel that way, and in many ways I am not. So I wonder, what makes ultimate reality so much more important than subjective reality?
As long as you don't experience any suffering, you're fine. Which I doubt, reading the end of your post (what required a rant when it was not suffering?)
Is it because we have no choice but to accept it? Because one day we will die, and we will lose what is subjectively us.
How can you lose something you do not even possess? When you're unconscious, how could anything be subjectively you?
Every night I die, and find it most refreshing. Hell, people even swallow pills to achieve nightly death quicker. Once you've achieved it, who is there within "you" who could worry whether you wake up again or not? Nothing! Non-existing you would not give a penny! Your sense organs bootstrap you back in the morning (or sometimes in the middle of the night, there's nothing you could do or want). Only when you're awake and get this I going you fear not waking up again (which appears to be some sort of cultivated schizophrenia). So when you're awake you fear that you're not waking up, yet you want to sleep in faster. Decide!
This is what most people are afraid of. Then they wonder, if these thing's aren't me, then what I am must be the awareness behind it all, so will there ever be a moment of awareness again? (The answer is Maybe. It's Impossible to know.)
They wouldn't be afraid being non-aware. They are only afraid of being afraid, and project that afraid-of-afraidness on whatever illusion comes next. Not being aware can never be unpleasant to you. So what's there to be afraid of?
So then, we must accept non-self, because there is a distinct lack of choice in the matter. I find this pretty annoying.
Do you also find this annoying non-aware? So why do you make up annoyance when being aware?
In fact I seriously doubt there's anything rational, sane or dare I say, moral, about the entire process a sentient being must go though, for all eternity.
Of course there's nothing moral or sane. Moral or sanity are concepts made up in the mind. You only suffer when you want to be what you perceive as moral where your surroundings aren't, or want to be what you think is sane where nature does not work that way. So do whatever you want sick. Where's the problem?
If there's one thing I do agree on - we are not in control of our destinies, nor will we ever be. Enlightenment is a sham. (Sorry).
For me, Enlightenment means to realize what you can change and what not, and tune the changeable part in a way so there is no suffering. Applying a health pack to the chain of perception.
