Everybody owns three important things: Awareness, Language and his/her own Body.

Awareness and Language are not our own inherent. When we were younger, we thought and talked different with that we do in a certain age.

Our Bodies are different. They absolutely belong to us. Our physical bodies exist independently with our sensibility.

Dualism comes to our mind together with our Awareness and Language. It has never been able to convince whether it is wrong or right. Those concepts are gone with time and situation.

Pain comes to our bodies before our Awareness and Language can recognise it. Pain is simply a Pain, nothing else. It is quite clear to me as my rhinitis.

I always doubt the purely proved justice, but I always listen to my own Body.
