I understand what you are saying and identify with the thought. The eye opener for me was when I internalized the reality of my mortality. Looking death in the eye changed my thinking and actions. Understanding that when I’m dead I will have nothing and need nothing. This helped me put the idea of ownership to rest. It moved me to get rid of a lot of things that I didn’t use or hadn’t used in six months or longer. Made out my will to cover the things I use including my finances. That, Jon, was a great stress remover as well.
