0 Whats A life??

"To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable." Erich Fromm

Whats the sum of a life?? the people you meet, the accomplishments you achieve,the family you build, you're adventures and traveling??
The one thing they have inn common is that they are youre memories.. and thats all you have..
At the end of you're life, whats more important. memories and a dying body or a dying mind in a old body??

I have always said that I would rather loose my mind and not knowing, than being held prisoner in a broken body.. But I don't know anymore... Its easy to have beliefs when you are young, dreaming you're own Nirvana, but dying is shitty no matter how you look at it, But if you have lived a fulfilled life, maybe that makes it easier. knowing that you have done what you send out to do.

My grandma is dying from cancer, and that sucks. She was given radiation, and in some cases it has the opposite effect, so instead of 1 tumor she has now 16.
But in all of that, she has no problem accepting it, she has had a hard, wonderful life. She is surrounded by her family, and she cherishes her memories from her long life.
And she is ready to go to God and grandpa, and that gives me comfort. It would have been terrible if she had no faith and was scared of dying, but for her, its just a new part of her journey.

I have always liked the saying, money don't make you rich, experiences do...
You cant take you're money or worldly possessions with you, If there is something after life, you're soul is all you get to keep,
So nurture the soul, with knowledge, compassion, love and a lot of fun.. and I mean a LOT of fun indeed
