Is the beta still available? I clicked the Get the beta at the Play Store and it said it's no longer available.

I originally posted this to another community before discovering this one. Perhaps someone can comment if I'm off track.
It troubled me that Buddhism essentially has no concept of an ego or personality. I kept asking myself - if my personality was formed by conditioning and that is taken away, what's left?

Then I thought about those moments when I played tennis or doing something; when you're "In the zone". Everything was real and I knew exactly what to do, when and where and how. But looking back, it occurs to me that in the zone I wasn't thinking about me/ego. If I hurt myself there was no pain until I stopped and was no longer in the zone.

You could say in those moments I had no concept of self. It sounds a lot like Buddha nature. If so, I think I can live with that.

Swearing is the hallmark of an inability to effectively communicate in a way that engages the audience.
Why do we swear so much? To add weight to our words ? 
DO we think ourselves as one, who people wouldn't normally believe without swearing? lets be a human of such high character that people believe our words with no doubt at all any time and every time... :)
