A man died, when he realized it,
He saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.
-God said: Alright son its time to go.
-Surprised the man responded: Now? So Soon? I had a lot of plans…
-I’m sorry but its time to go.
What do you have in that suitcase? The man asked
God answered.: Your belongings
My belongings? You mean My things, my clothes, my money?
-God answered: Those things were not yours they belonged to the earth.
-Is it my memories? The man asked
-God answered: those never belonged to you. They belonged to Time
-Is it my talents?
-God answered: Those were never yours. They belonged to Circumstances
-Is it my friends and family?
-God answered: I’m sorry they were never yours. They belonged to the Path
-Is it my wife and son?
-God answered: They were never yours they belonged to your Heart
-Is it my body?
-God answered: That was never yours it belonged to the Dust
-Is it my soul?
-God answered: No that is Mine
-Full of fear, the man took the suitcase from God and
Opened it just to find out the suitcase was empty.
-With a tear coming down his cheek the man said:
I never had anything???
-God answered: That is correct, every moment you lived were only yours.
Life is just a moment, a moment that belongs to you.
For this reason enjoy this time while you have it
Don’t let anything that you think you own stop you from doing so.
-Live your life
-Don’t forget to be Happy, that is the only thing that matters.
-Material things and everything else that you fought for stay here.
–YOU CAN’T TAKE ANYTHING
