:tantrum:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Indeed.
Multiply the "Days" answer by 24 and then by 60 to know how many minutes you have been alive ... then think about how many you have wasted.

Only this one shows you how many seconds you have left before you die; a good mindfulness of death exercise.

We're doomed. We're all going to die!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

O.K. - starting healthier diet, and going back to exercising. :cry:

This OP reminds me my earlier post. “What is unique in human compare to animals?”
To be born as a human is such a rare chance we should make the most of it before the next birth. (attain Niravana)
We also should protect precious human life.

Hopefully it's telling you that you've attained the deathless! :lol:

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
