'Lord, I'm not ready to go yet. I have so much I want to do first.' These are, normally, the last words of an individual that is looking at death eye to eye. This is not a display of readiness or fearlessness. Yet, some claim; 'I don't know how long I'll live so I'll try to have all the fun I can. You only live once.' This is a 'temporary' view on life. This statement hints toward the thought of being young forever. So, when Death comes, we feel that we are not ready. The 'temporary' view, on life, seems to, unintentionally, equate aging with death.
As one ages, their experiences begin to change them. Every person that you see, today, is a product of their good, and bad, experiences. One less bad, or good, experience could cause a person to be totally different. So, we see that aging is not equal to death, but it is equal to change.. A person with a 'temporary' view, on life, is really saying that they are afraid of change. It seems that the reality, of death, does not appear until death claims another victim. Then, and only then, it is too late.
Most people have unfinished business, when they die. Just because one does not fear death, doesn't mean that they are ready to die. There are many thoughts, and assumptions, about death. Because of these thoughts and assumption, one prematurely invites it. When death comes to claim its prize, reality hits. Then, it is too late. Unlearn.
