It is the fact that we have to give up all the sense for proprietorship. At one point we just have to accept that nothing is ours. In the Caitanya Caritamrta, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu tells to Sanatana Goswami that even his own body wasn’t his. Caitanya Mahaprabhu says:
‘You have surrendered to me, therefore your body is my property.’
So we have to gradually come to this point when we really say:
‘All right, it’s all Your property.“ and to let go the tendency to control a destiny of our life and to say:
‘Ok Krsna, whatever you want.’ – because, whether we have that mood or not, it’s anyway going to be like that. Krsna will anyway, do what he wants!
