Have you ever thought that we are only the master of what we can give ? This seems paradoxical.
We can be masters only of those things that we can give. It is the giving which reveals we are the owner. If you are not able to give, and hold on to things and find that giving is difficult, then you are not the master, the object is the master. When you are able to give , you are the master. Only the master can give – how can a slave give? And the day you are able to give bliss, you have become the master of it.
