Surety about Stream Entry
Yes, I know I’m supposed to not be so sure I got stream entry, but I’m sure! The reasons I’m sure are as follows:
- My progression of insight stages was so clear,
- I had been in Equanimity for 2 months when it happened,
- The three moments that happened before cessation were distinct sync-ups of formerly overlapping formations,
- I had sudden access to harder jhanas, and
- I had new access to the formless jhanas.
And I just feel different all the time: There is a warm, flowy, pulsing outward, like waves – very pleasant and peaceful, like the shore-lapping ocean. I’ve received a huge reduction in anxiety, although I’ve been more irritable than usual, which is odd.
