Do you think that your last day here on Earth is pre-determined?
Or do you think it’s a matter of circumstances?
Would you want to pre-know your death date (or not) if you could?
I know I may be opening up a big discussion here, but it’s a topic that has come to my attention recently through a few conversations with friends and I thought I’d ask you too. (To my knowledge, there are no imminent deaths coming to my family/friends, so it’s just a question.)
But honestly, I think it’s a sad, but important topic to cover, to share our thoughts and to expand our thinking from others’ experiences. Life is fragile and as my blog states, we only have the present moment for sure. Not that I don’t plan for the future, but nobody knows for sure what’s on the horizon. I’m not being morbid here honestly. I don’t want to add fear to anyone’s thoughts. I guess my point is a reiteration of being grateful for the past and being grateful for the present moment at all times. Plan for the future, but don’t put off holding your loved ones close, spending time with them and telling them in real life, whether in person, via email, or sending a card, how you feel.
Because frankly, who doesn’t love hearing that we are appreciated and loved?
So back to the topic at hand! What do you think of when you envision your last day? Or do you even think about it? I think about mine. I think cancer changed my views on life, so I have thought about it. I believe that we may have a pre-determined last day, but I’m open to listening to your thoughts on the subject. For me, a pre-determined last day means I’m free to live my life without measure, completely in the moment, sharing love easily and without fear, but with the knowing that we never know our last day or that of our loved ones for sure. With that in mind, we need to be the best, most loving souls we can be today and everyday. It helps me to consistently choose connections, love, kindness and understanding instead of the lower vibrations. It allows me the freedom to shine my heartlight with sparkling enthusiasm.
What about you? If you feel inclined, please share your thoughts!
