God and Suitcase Story

Posted by Sharath Chandra
A man died, when he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.

God: Alright son its time to go.
Man(Surprised): Now? So soon? I had a lot of plans...
God: I'm sorry but its time to go.

Man: What do you have in that suitcase? the man asked.
God: Your belongings.

Man: My belongings? you mean my things, my clothes, my money?
God: Those things were not yours they belonged to the earth.

Man: Is it my memories? the man asked.
God: those never belonged to you they belonged to Time

Man: Is it my talents?
God: those were never yours they belonged to the circumstances.

Man: Is it my friends and family?
God: I'm sorry they were never yours they belonged to the path.

Man: Is it my wife and son?
God: They were never yours the belonged to your heart.

Man: Is it my body?
God: that was never yours it belonged to the dust.

Man: Is it my soul?
God: 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.
Man: With a tear coming down his cheek the man said: I never had anything???

God: 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 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.
