The last days of my life

What happens to a man when told that he will die soon and not have so long to live. When you know that you have a disease that is not treatable one usually first panic frequently and begin to think of everything that you did not have time in life and you want to do.

After a while, the realization step by step and you start living in the present, and every minute and hour is infinitely precious. Problems and conflicts in the world does not mean much anymore, and instead you start to concentrate on the people you have around themselves.

People become important, and the relationship with them is very important. You begin to see people as they are and not what you can get out of friendship. For as it still will die soon, so you do not have to think about what you can get out of it, and instead, you can rejoice in the pure selfless friendship and enjoy it.

Most people are afraid to die. They are afraid to suffer, to experience pain and losing control of himself. One wonders if it will be able to recognize themselves and if they are in their right mind or not.

But when the fear has subsided and it has completely accepted that one should die, well then it is usually for the most part appear a peace that you never thought that you could experience. This peace allows one to see clearly at many things in life when the mind no longer clouded by worries and concerns.

During this process, so it revalues ​​much in his life, and to value things differently than before. And as I have mentioned, it is becoming more and more important with genuine and true relationships with people, so it excites no longer up on little things.

It is during this process that we humans figuratively transformed from a chrysalis into a butterfly. We turn out and in on ourselves, and we dare to be true to ourselves and our surroundings. Many see this as incredibly liberating, and although it is an extremely difficult process, they would not want to be without it. You dare to accept himself as the man is, and can feel that they're good enough and is loved.

We humans are born as original and unique, but for the time we live here on earth so it will be easy that we copy each other and lose a part of our uniqueness. But the Dying Process, then the unique back, step by step again.

We who are baptized and are members of the Church have an advantage over those who have not been baptized. We died in baptism and ascended from dopgraven to a new life. We can already here and now take part of this process, all because of Jesus Christ's atoning work. But how often do we think about this?

Think of the words "Latter-day Saints." Do we live as if it were the last days of our lives and that we died with Jesus Christ and risen with Him to a new life, and that this new life is sacred? Have baptism affected us as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ want?

Being a Saint means a lot. We should live as if it were the last days of our lives right now. this even though we might live 10-30-50 years or even more. The last days are so precious and it is very important to take advantage of them when they can not run them in the replay.
