Do you own your body?

Do you own your body?

Do you think your body will listen to your instruction?

“If our body really belonged to us, it would be obey to our commands.

If we say, “Don’t get old” or “I forbid you to get sick.”

Does it obey to us?

NO. I takes no notice. We only “Rent” this house, not “Own” it.

If we think it does belong to us, we will suffer when we have to leave it.

Impermanence

But in reality, there is no such thing as permanent self, nothing unchanging or solid that we can hold on to.”
