What is Yours?
As Lord Krishna rightly asks in Bhagawad Gita, “What is yours in this world? What did you bring into this world to claim as yours? You did not create your soul; rather your soul chose to be ‘what you call’ You! Whatever is there today as yours will become somebody else’s tomorrow!” Even those who hate Hinduism or call themselves as atheists would appreciate the fact that nothing is theirs, in every truest sense of the word.
You Are Only A Medium:
All the physical beings that have souls are merely medium through which the souls play their games and enjoy everything that they expect from life. Therefore it is essential to understand the vehicle can never sell the owner, rather the owner can trade off the vehicle.
Master Cannot be Sold:
In the literal sense, the souls are the true masters and the bodies are mere slaves that obey all the desires and the commands of the soul that reside inside. Therefore the slaves can never sell out or make deals out of their masters.
No Physical Proof:
If a sale has to happen, then there has to be transfer of ownership, which requires a physical proof. Even for the services that are availed, some type of certificate or other documentary evidences are required to be produced to show that the person has sold out something in return of the money that they have received. Without the physical entity the souls cannot be identified and therefore can never be sold.
Enjoy as Fantasy:
While other creatures and beings enjoy their lifespan without digging into unnecessary things that would complicate life, humans tend to complicate as much as possible. Instead of digging into the science of whether the person can make deal with their souls that they would not even realize that it is there, it is nice to have these fantasies played on screen just for the pure fun of it and it is unwise to believe these imaginary stories for real.
