A Reminder About the Essence of Life
A man died and when he realized it, he saw God coming towards him with a suitcase in His hand. Then a dialogue ensued between God and the dead man:
God: Alright son, it’s time to go.
Man: So soon? I had a lot of plans…
God: I am sorry about that, but it’s time to go.
Man: What do you have in that suitcase?
God: Your belongings.
Man: My belongings? You mean my things… clothes… money…
God: Those things were never yours, they belong to the Earth.
Man: Is it my memories?
God: No. They belong to time.
Man: Is it my talent?
God: No. They belong to circumstance.
Man: Is it my friends and family?
God: No son. They belong to the path you traveled.
Man: Is it my wife and children?
God: No. they belong to your heart.
Man: Then it must be my body.
God: No, no… It belongs to dust.
Man: Then surely it must be my soul!
God: You are mistaken son. Your soul belongs to me.
Man with tears in his eyes and full of fear took the suitcase from God’s hand and opened it…
With heartbroken tears running down his cheek he asks God…
Man: I never owned anything?
God: That’s right. You never owned anything.
Man: Then? What was mine?
God: your moments. Every moment you lived was yours.
Do Good in every moment
Think Good in every moment
Thank God for every moment
Life is lived in moments.
