A seperate "I"?

Buddhism states it's a misconception to think our mind and body are seperate from everything else.
The consequence is that this idea generates self-centeredness, because one thinks in terms of "I"and "mine".

Arising from this are 5 kinds of troubles:
  1. greed
  2. resentment 
  3. righteousness
  4. negligence and 
  5. doubtfulness
Practicing selflessness and becoming aware that we own nothing will end this.
