We are visitors

Our visit to this planet is short, so we should use our time meaningfully, which we can do by helping others wherever possible. And if we cannot help others, at least we should try not to create pain and suffering for them. While we are here as visitors nothing is really owned by us. Everything is leased, maybe a hundred-year-least at most. This includes our house, car, clothes, computer, and even our body. The rightful owners of “our” body are our parents. Their egg and sperm produced this body. Yet we call this body our own. We are only using this body “on a short-term lease.” So, let’s use it in the best possible way, to serve others.
