The Suitcase

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 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 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 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
