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 __________________ _______________________________________________
