Waking up is all about leaving what belongs to the body to the body, and discovering what belongs to the Self. If we were to contemplate on what is actually owned by you – those things you could stamp a copyright on, what would you be left with? First up any religious belief is borrowed, since you did not write it, and you were not the original experiencer. Any philosophy is borrowed if you were not the original conceiver of the concepts. Even your name is not your own unless you are like me and changed it legally to something of your own choosing. Certainly your politics are not your own.

You get the idea that if you were to strip away and discard everything in your complete world view and ontological system that did not belong to you, but that you borrowed from other sources, the vast majority of humans would be left with empty hands.
