Only Ownerless & Transient Effects of prior Conditions:

The Blessed Buddha once stated:
Sabbe Dhammā Anatta!
which means:
All states are not self...

This body is neither yours, nor anybody else's...
These feelings are neither yours, nor anybody else's.
These perceptions are neither yours, nor anybody else's.
These mental constructions are neither yours, nor anybody else's.
These verbal constructions are neither yours, nor anybody else's.
These bodily constructions are neither yours, nor anybody else's.
This consciousness is neither yours, nor anybody else's.
They are results of old kamma, prior actions, something to be seen as generated and
shaped by accumulations of past intention, emerging as effects to be sensed now...
When this exists, that comes to be. With the arising of this, that arises.
When this does not exist, that does not come to be.  When this ceases, that ceases too:
That is:
The fading away of Ignorance causes Mental Construction to cease.
The fading away of Mental Construction causes Consciousness to cease.
The fading away of Consciousness causes Name-&-Form to cease.
The fading away of Name-&-Form causes The 6 Senses to cease.
The fading away of The 6 Senses causes Contact to cease.
The fading away of Contact causes Feeling to cease.
The fading away of Feeling causes Craving to cease.
The fading away of Craving causes Clinging to cease.
The fading away of Clinging causes Becoming to cease.
The fading away of Becoming causes Birth to cease.
The fading away of Birth causes Ageing, Decay & Death to cease.
The fading away of Ageing, Decay & Death causes Pain to cease...
Such is the ceasing of this entire immense mass of Suffering!

A Void Frame!
As this Box is empty of any "Self", "soul" or "Ego"
so is the body and all other phenomena...

Who own these? Not their owners! They are - and always was - ownerless!
