Your “own” story has absolutely no relevance to you! Without the narrative in thought (not reality), it would not exist, nor be maintained. Look at this dubious and changeable history of a self. We tell our stories and memories to other people as if they were real. We use words to identify things as ours: “my” computer, for example. It is truer to say that it’s “a” computer. The word “computer” is not the same as the computer itself, of course. It’s just a verbal pointer. Please take a moment to look at the computer and think about this. Is the word the actual thing? What happens in your mind when you say the word “computer”? When you’ve done that, say: “My computer.” A whole new story starts. There may be lot of thoughts about the computer. Are any of them real? Please check.
