Developing dispassion - simple but profound means

The Bhagavadgita 13th chapter says that one should constantly think of the
misery attached to birth, death, old age, disease, pain. Here is a kind of
elucidation of this:

(Received in WhatsApp)
A rich man looked through his window and saw a poor man picking something
from his dustbin ... He said, Thank GOD I'm not poor; The poor man looked
around and saw a naked man misbehaving on the street ... He said, Thank GOD
I'm not mad; The mad man looked ahead and saw an ambulance carrying a
patient ... He said, Thank GOD am not sick; Then a sick person in hospital
saw a trolley taking a dead body to the mortuary ... He said, Thank GOD I'm
not dead; *What is LIFE*? To understand life better, you have to go to 3
locations: *1. Hospital* *2. Prison* *3. Cemetery* At the Hospital, you
will understand that nothing is more beautiful than HEALTH. In the Prison,
you'll see that FREEDOM is the most precious thing At the Cemetery, you
will realize that life is worth nothing. The ground that we walk today will
be our roof tomorrow. Sad Truth* : We all come with *Nothing* and we will
go with *Nothing* ... Let us, therefore, remain humble and be thankful &
grateful to God at all times for everything. Could you please share this
with someone else, and let them know that God loves them __________________
