what a photo is that :)
the words are the essence of a stanza from Bhagwad Gita,

"Whatever you took, you took from God.
Whatever you gave, you gave to him.
You came empty handed, you will leave empty handed.
What is yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday, and will belong to someone else the day after tomorrow.
You are mistakenly enjoying the thought that this is yours.
It is this false happiness that is the cause of your sorrows."

rejoice in me says the God...man says he won't...he needs a hundred other things :)

love,
dev

Lorraine, very thought-provoking. And so very true. When we really think about what is "ours" - the only thing we can truly give is of spirit.

Children are taught more and more not to do their best but BE the best, taught that winning is what counts, and that they are the most important person in the world...is it any wonder then that we have become a "ME" and "MINE" world?

Never give anything precious to someone who cannot recognize it as such.
