If you could know when and how you were going to die (and not be able to change it), would you want to know?
I wouldn't. I would rather not know and enjoy life up until the last moment. If I knew when it was going to happen, I know myself. I would dwell on it. I would wonder what I could do to change it. I would probably end up getting more and more depressed as my time ticked away knowing that this or that would be the last time I would do that. I would be sad for the people I would be leaving behind.
I would rather not know and continue living life. I would rather try to bring joy to people in my life. I would rather enjoy every moment rather than dwell on what I cannot change: my end. Besides, I know where I will be going after I die and It. Will. Be. Beautiful. :)
If I can see these things while thinking in my car while in traffic, then I should actually act on them. I should enjoy every moment. I should love everyone. I should be thankful for every little thing I have (and realize the things I don't have are just not supposed to be in my life at this point). I should and I will.
What about you?
