"Everything you have, you lose" Right?

Nothing you have is really yours, or am i mistaken? I think we can have anything we desire, but we can't really keep anything. I believe this so much, I've even tattooed this quote on my skin.

    Jul 5 2011: you forget about the time between. we acquire then we lose. but between the two, we have. and it can be valuable.
    • Jul 7 2011: Dear Pinter;

      I agree with you that we use in between, but I do not agree in lose. We should properly handover to next generations.

      I think "Give back to the community" means this.

      Thank you
  • Jul 6 2011: Dear McGowan;

    You are absolutely right. But what really matters is our action. I mean your good/bad actions will remain yours even after death.

    I am sure people will blame me for wrong action or respect me for good after death.

    Great conversation.
  • Jul 6 2011: I agree with you. It's probably because of the fact that we can't really keep anything that we should not desire. I have everything I need and should be happy but because I don't have the one thing I want right now I am sad. Thank you for making me think.
  • Jul 5 2011: We just like to keep some arranged atoms to ourselves for some time, then we die and we give it all back to the universe.

    Jul 5 2011: I keep my secrets, they go with me to the grave.

    Jul 5 2011: Gabriela, like Salim said, I think that the material things are only important in expounding our eternal possessions of love, hope and trust. http://Bit.Ly/KeyPower

    Jul 5 2011: All material possensions will go, non material ownership may sustain even after one's demise. Something like Gandhi, Mandela , Mother Teresa etc have

    Jul 5 2011: Well eventually we all die so no, you can't keep anything forever.

    Jul 6 2011: I wonder if we even remeber anything after we pass, if our spirits remember how to love and who we loved and what we loved, guess we'll all know one day....
    • Jul 6 2011: Or not if we are just worm food. Which is closer to what I believe but either way, enjoy life, do no harm and help when you can.
