owned by someone superior? Is our life really ours? Or are we just borrowing it for a time?

I don't believe that anyone or anything is superior. Life is not something that can be owned. It is something to experience. Our physical life is only for a while, but our existence is eternal.

Grace beti Our life is really not ours in the true sense, we are just the caretaker of the outer body that holds the soul inside, my view as a hindu. Body will die, decay, soul will enter another body, may be of human, animal, worm any thing depending upon karma.. So lets do good to all. Thanks for sharing God bless you, have a nice day ahead. Kalyani ‘Namastey’. .

It's matter of perspective. If you believe yourself and your life to be an instrument of a Supreme Being or a certain culture or institution (like family, work etc.), somehow you believe your life (and yourself) to be 'owned' by someone or something. This is also where your concept of 'borrowed' originated. It depends also in your perspective if this is a fair situation or not. For other people, they feel that their lives and all the aspects regarding it are their business. They don't like other people or entities creeping to their lives and start making a fuss on what they do, believe or act. They certain want o believe that their is nothing to 'return' their lives into

We are all spiritual beings in our true natures. We are eternal. I suppose you could call our physical bodies borrowed since they are not eternal. Ownership??? We are children of God. We are individuals, however we are part of the same family so we are all in this together.

I believe in God thus I believe that He owns me and nobody else. Everything I possess in this life including my family is just temporary. Thus I do not cling too much to material things. Yes I enjoy them for the time being but they are not my priority. I love my son and my husband but not as much as I should love God.
