I agree alot with what Tim said but I also remember that most of my life has been trying to get ready to die. To finish past lives, to try and study what is going to take place at death and instense teachings of what to do and where to go and make sure I do whatever one is suppose to do.
I am so thankful that this lifetime that I was born in human form and had the opportunity to try and not waste this life. I have had near death experience that I tasted something that was sweet but I was thrust back into life again and after so many years of wondering whats going to take place, I have just given it up all together.
I have tried to think that when I go, what kind of a rebirth would I come into, will it be in plant form, animal, insect form and of all the hells that is said we can experience and you know something, I am just going to have to go with the experience itself when it presents itself if that is the choice I have. I mean by that is not a sudden accident or things that happen to us but I have found and especially at this time, we always need to prepared to die on a daily basis as one never knows when its going to come.
On a practical mundane level, I have this past week started the process of getting documents together and writing down what my wishes are and to make sure my Doctor understand them. I have a will sitting here and I keep putting off as I have gathered so much stuff but I need to get that down but as I am progressing thru all of this, I know when that is finished, it will make me much lighter so when it come, it comes. I think this is when spirituality comes into play that we must each take responsibity in that area and in Tibetan Buddhism, there is alot of things to do and not to and be ready for it, well I am ready spiritually and what takes place will take place and I am just going to rest in what my teachers have taught me and if I have forgotten something, they will just have to take care of me.
I know I don't want to die right now as I have almost finished all those things that I wished for and want to enjoy being alive and be at peace with the world. We are really just energy and we are going to disolve back into that.
Well I am saying too much already but being alive and being in human form is a high gift and thats what I am going to do.
