Let me borrow what the speaker said earlier.

If you travel to a certain city and stay in a hotel, you are contented to use what’s provided. You don’t buy a dishwasher just because you want to have things easier. You don’t paint the walls with your favorite color for your stay. You are staying there temporarily after all. You have a home to go to and that’s what you should look forward to after your vacation.

The thought is expressed in the first book of  Peter Ch.2 verse 11: Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and temporary residents  to abstain from fleshly desires that war against you.

Life is like that, we are temporary residents, transient in this world, passing by and waiting to reach our goal, the promised Paradise. This is the basic reason why, we, as travelers or temporary residents should not be so attached with material things. In a way, to be more active spiritually makes us forget the worries of the world.
