How to live forever

I watched a documentary yesterday called "How To Live Forever."  I'm someone who does not want to die, so this peaked my interest.  It made me think, for sure. 
Now, I'm on the road to getting healthy, but in February and March, I prayed multiple times a day, asking God to keep me on this Earth a little longer.  I was scared.  I still am scared.  Scared of being ill, scared of living, and even scared of dying.
Its been about 24 hours since I saw How to Live Forever, and I am still thinking about it.  They don't have a clear solution to live forever (obviously), but it looks at modern technology, interviews with some of the oldest people and communities in the world, and makes you think.  Do I really want to live forever?  Seeing how some people age, or more like how they begin to deteriorate (for lack of a better word), I see how someone can get tired with living.  I also see how someone 100 years old can still be working and drinking and smoking. 
What I took away from this documentary is that if you let your body and mind get sedentary, you will age faster (or die younger).  The trick is to keep your mind and body active.  Eating healthy and having healthy genes also help, but, hey, I already have a life threatening cancer...lets focus on what I can change!

No, I don't want to live forever.  I do, want to grow old, though.  I think I have determined I am more scared of the unknown, what happens after you die, not of death itself.  I wish we could be guaranteed our souls move on to another place or dimension, but its hard to know what to believe, with so many different religions telling us different things. I know one thing.  Each one of us will die.  If we all could live forever, there would be a population issue.  I enjoyed this thought provoking look and really appreciated the documentary in a way I probably wouldn't have before my diagnosis.

I watched this online as an Amazon Prime member for free.  I don't know if its available on Netflix, but completely worth renting!



 

On a brighter note, I think I will work on my obituary (just in case) this week.  Not trying to be morbid, maybe a bit vain. 
Have a happy Sunday,
L

  8. My name is Christabella, I am here to Share my testimony about a doctor who helped me remove a burden from my life. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2012, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking of how to get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I went to visit a friend and she asked why i was looking so sad i explained to her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i emailed him. He told me all the things I needed to do and also gave me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what was happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body vanished . so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him at: drkakuduwesthealingcenter@gmail.com OR dr.kakuduwesthealingtemple@outlook.com call +2348146787336
