Nothing Belongs To Us


People believe their property and family
belong to them. But nothing belongs to us.
So this false belief can only
lead to suffering.

  1. We all know that when we die, none of the things that we have accumulated in this world can come with us. It is not ours to keep. But most of us ignore that fact, and end up arguing and fighting over things as if we are going to be here for ever.

  2. Thanks very much for following The Immortal Jukebox Eddie. I hope you will enjoy lots of entertaining writing and the wide variety of music. I usually post once a week. Please feel free to add comments. If it’s been a while since you visited come on over and see what’s new! Good luck with your blog. Regards Thom.

  3. I am grateful everyday for all the wonderful things that are on loan to me! However, giving them up would not be easy…

  4. Everything is on loan Eddie.. 🙂 We come with nothing and return with nothing.. And must respect all we have in-between… Including each other..

    At last I am here to catch up with you Eddie.. I have missed my visits 🙂

  5. This is so true, mother earth reclaims everything no matter what we build or think we own eventually sometime long after your gone the earth takes those materials back into her belly.
