Ownly Borrowed

It is impossible to own anything. All of the possessions I have are only borrowed. And, this collection of atoms I reference as “me” is borrowed as well. When the time comes it will all be recycled back to the Earth. And even this planet is borrowed. It’s lifespan may be a few billion more years, or it may only be a few more years if we screw up.

The less I feel that I own things the more I am able to enjoy the stuff that temporarily comes into my life. And, the less painful it is when I have to give up something I cherish. The whole concept of ownership is a deception.
