Control Part 1 - you don't own me

This is an old song, a wonderful Dharma song:

"You don't own me, no,

I'm not one of your little toys.

...Don't tell me what to do,

Don't tell me what to say." 

As a reminder from time to time, as a practice support, we should sing this song to our life, to body - mind, to others, to circumstances; and they can all sing this to us.

To rephrase something Joko Beck taught, "Your life is not about you..."

"Your life is not your business."

Here is a related Dharma talk:
