Just another 4 months to go for the new year!
The other day one of our exceptionally brilliant readers wondered, how the time is running so fast, we are in the middle of the year 2022, and still, we are dreaming….as if we celebrated the new year hardly a few weeks back…is this not scarring?
Life is moving so fast, refusing to wait!
And it’s true.
The routine…the spring will run into summer and Summer chasing Fall and Fall merging with Winter in no time and soon we celebrate Christmas and eagerly wait for the safe delivery of 2023 and in between many will be in touch with the Creator…
Then the thought of why can’t we live longer lingered in my mind!
Yes. Why not?
All of you know life is awesome!
If you ask, each one gives their own many reasons as to why they love to live longer.
Very few say they want to die earlier.
Don’t you think there are so much of unfulfilled wishes to be full filled?
There is so much to do, so much to see, so much to enjoy, so much to learn, so much to discuss, so many new people to meet, new friends, new thoughts, new experiences…
Oh, my life! My dear life…..and you think just 70-80 yrs of life is sufficient?
There won’t be negative feelings or sadness or sorrow if one were to live forever.
Of course, one’s health should be good, but this is possible as science is advancing and most probably in 2100 death can be delayed indefinitely.
But why you don’t want to die earlier?
It’s very simple my friend.
Death means, all your taste for enjoying the good life is gone.
You miss the beauty of the universe.
You miss your near and dear. You miss your great great great grand child.
you miss unfinished jobs. you miss loving your sweetheart.
But Why do you wish to live forever?
I have an answer.
The modern age is better than the Iron age.
The iron age was better than the bronze age.
The bronze age was better than the stone age.
As things become better and better, we wish to live longer.
We start inventing things where death can be delayed. As technology advances, the day may not be far, where death can become optional.
What is the present scenario?
- Living forever is not possible, but living longer is possible
- Eat & Drink Healthy
- Have a sound mind and you can take correct decisions
- Have a good social life. Have a limited number of friends, who value the meaning of life just like you
- Remember not to possess anger & Ego
- When you get up in the morning, the first thing you do is to remember God and express your gratitude, since you are breathing and lucky to be alive.
Why should you thank God?

The trick is not to think about living a long life, but to live a full life, meaningful and giving. Then G-d, in His wisdom, will give you a longer life.
