A man died; when he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.
God said: Alright son, it’s time to go.
Surprised the man responded: Now? So soon? I had a lot of plans…
I’m sorry but it’s 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 the 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 that the suitcase was empty.
With a tear coming down his cheek, the man said: I never had anything??
God answered: that is correct, only every moment you lived was 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 Now…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!
Love, I truly believe that we take love with us and when remembering those who have passed connecting to our heart, there is the love. Vanessa 🙏
The fourth remembrance. All that you value and everyone you love are of the nature to change. There is
no way you can escape being separated from them. (Tich Nhat Hanh)
