“We forget out of maya, we start to think this is mine – this is my wife, this is my mother, this is my son, this is my daughter… and then we start to serve our possessions – so called possessions. Then we forget that ultimately we are loaned everything by Krishna. At any moment He can take us or those things away. Where is the question of possessing? So actually one should realize that the Lord Himself is the sole possessor. We are simply caretakers at best.”
