Our life is not our own… [Cloud Atlas]
As simple as it may sound, this phrase has a profound meaning and can liberate a person from its anxiety.
We all talk about “OUR live” as if it is our property.
However we do not know why we are here.
We do not know where we will “go” after we are dead.
And yet, we insist that it is “OUR life”…
Change that simple premise and you will see life in a better way. More holistically. You are part of the Whole, part of One. Your life is not your own. You have Free Will but that does not mean that you “own” something. Your Free Will is given. Your life is given. Be gracious. Not arrogant.
You are a luminous being. Not this crude matter!
