Tomorrow you have a fatal accident. You lay there dying. What do you think are your last thoughts?
Are they fearful, reflective, regretful, joyful, hopeful, peaceful, doubtful, wishful. Close your eyes for a minute and imagine the moment and, if you can, give your honest answer.
I hope I raised my children well enough to live without me.
I've had a few near death experiences over the years. I took a bullet at age ten, suffered a cocaine induced heart attack ten days after my eightieth birthday, have been in two severe car accidents, and this is just off the top of my head.
From these experiences, I've gathered the same thing I have written down in a crude Will that I update regularly. I won't share these thoughts exactly, but rather answer the question through the context meant.
I regret not expanding my relationship with God, and if I survive this incident, I will not let other things deter me from this.
I regret not treating my family and friends with the constant respect and love they deserve.
I regret not taking all of the chances I could have, I can't say that I lived life to its fullest potential, my will was weak, my faith was absent, my fear of rejection prevailed.
I pray for forgiveness and ask for mercy, I am far from the poster child of God's creation.
If possible, another chance to correct my wrongs would not be wasted.
"Prayer is the last resort of a scoundrel" and I am as pathetic as they come when faced with my mortality. Thats one honest answer....
I'm not religious but I would pray that my daughter and grandson would be taken care of, that my family could handle the tragedy
How could my life have ended this way and why........How is my wife and son gonna survive?
i think at last moments of life , everybody thinks about whom he / she had loved most in his/ her life
That's not something that one should generalize upon--many people think many different things, myself included. What is YOUR honest answer? What would YOU think at the last moments of your life, do you suppose? That was the intent of the question.
Where are my kids? As long as someone trustworthy is watching them until my husband is done at my deathbed, I'm content. Death is a part of life, everyone has to do it sometime. I do worry about what might happen to my (significantly older) husband if I die first, but if death were definitely coming in very short order then the time for worrying is over.
oh no i will neva get to see sherlock holmes: a game of shadows
I would just be upset that I wouldn't get to tell my family that I loved them one last time. My family means the world to me.
Although I always try to leave loved ones as though I might never see them again, I share your wish to tell them all that I loved them one last time. I missed that opportunity once recently, and highly regret it (I was crying too hard to say it).
I've been there and done that several times (very-near-death experiences), so I know exactly how I feel.
I naturally feel scared, curious, and hurt about the physical and neurological things going on, both to and within my body, but aside from the mechanics of it all...
I ask myself, "Is this my time, or will I make it through again?"
Emotionally, I simply feel relief--simple relief--that this life is over and that whatever comes next, if anything, might be different, better, or more interesting, educational, or challenging in different ways than this life has been.
I feel no regrets, no shame, no doubts, and so on: a life goal of mine has been to ensure that I have none of these at all times, just in case. Although not 100% successful at this goal, of course, I generally feel at harmony with loved ones, the truth, my country, my planet, and sometimes even myself. I try to never leave bad feelings hang with loved ones, and to always end conversations with "I love you. Goodbye," or an obvious appropriate equivalent for that individual, just in case it's the last goodbye for either of us. If anything, I sometimes regret not being able to be a mother, but it was not an option for me at any point in my life, so that is the part that I actually regret.
The other few regrets I do have are almost all things I did NOT do or say or take a chance on, rather than those that I did: regrets for not being brave enough to take the "right path" rather than the easy or typical one. Taking the "right path" is usually the most dangerous, though, so that's why I say it takes bravery to take the "right path" a good portion of the time, and, in cases where I was not brave enough, I regret not taking the "right path".

It's your last day on earth. What do you regret not doing?A survey was carried out in my region of Australia which asked elderly people if they had any regrets.The theme that came through most strongly was: " I wish I'd taken more risks."Fast forward to age 95 and forecast your answer.

Have you ever had a life-threatening or near-death experience?

Do you think near death experiences (NDEs)prove that there is life after death?Maybe NDEs and other spiritual transformational experiences can help all of us find better ways to live in this world today.

If you died tomorrow would you have regrets yes or no? If yes, what would you regret and why? If no, what do you think keeps you regret free?
