"You will own nothing, and you will be happy"

A person who is in touch with spiritual truth knows that already they own nothing - for life is a gift from God that is returned at death and the concept of "ownership" only makes sense at the level of earthly, mortal existence.

A person in touch with spiritual truth also knows that "being happy" is a gift from God as well, and that as soon as happiness is made into a life-goal it becomes very scarce, very quickly. 

And so when anther person, who, for example, is more wealthy and powerful than most people can dream is possible tells me that soon "I will own nothing" and "I will be happy" I can't help but respond with a degree of trepidation as to what they could possibly have in mind.
