Life without end
Live forever or not
The question was if I would like to live forever. This is a good question but takes a longer answer than just "yes" or "no." I think you all agree.
First of all, if this world with all the violence, wars and sickness is still the choice, I would say a very clear: "Absolutely NOT."
However, if there will be major changes in human's behavior and lives, I think it will be worth considering.
The human brain has the capacity
The human brain has a capacity that is far, far more than we ever can use it in our lifetime.
When we are born it comes programmed to learn languages. It repairs itself, rewrites programs, and improves its capacity.
The brain makes rapid growth, reaching three-quarters of its adult weight in the first two years of life.
A scientist said: ” Our minds “make us qualitatively different from all other forms of life.” The fact is, that the more we use the brain the more powerful it will grow. It is similar to a muscle and can be at work far more than now. Some say that we use only 2% of our brains today, even when we reach 80 years of age.

The body heals itself
Every seven years all our cells are replaced, and the body is freshly new. All except the brain cells, they stay the same, but as I said earlier: The brain can be strengthened and increased through use!
The human body is one of the most complex structures in the universe. It is made up of some 100 trillion tiny cells—bone cells, blood cells, brain cells, to name a few. In fact, there are more than 200 different types of cells in your body.
Despite their amazing diversity in shape and function, your cells form an intricate, integrated network. The Internet, with its millions of computers and high-speed data cables, is clumsy in comparison. No human invention can compete with the technical brilliance evident in even the most basic of cells.
A Biologist noted: “We replace the cells lining our intestine once every few days, those lining the urinary bladder once every two months, and our red blood cells once every four months.” He concluded: “Nature is taking us apart and putting us back together every day.” What does that actually mean? It means that regardless of how many years we might live—whether 8, 80, or even 800—our physical body remains very young. A scientist once estimated: “In a year approximately 98 percent of the atoms in us now will be replaced by other atoms that we take in in our air, food, and drink.”
The sleep is also very important to humans. During this time (usually about 50 percent of the night), body recovery and repair take place, and it is during delta sleep that young bodies grow.

Death is not part of our created mind
We all know the pain when a loved one dies. The earth is filled with grieving people and families. Every time we watch the news, there is a pain and sorrow for loved deceased ones.
The only good explanation to why it is so painful to deal with death is that we were created to live. We do not have the inbuilt capacity to deal with death. We all know that every living soul dies. But the sharp sorrow and mourning is still there every time. We were not meant to die from the beginning. God created us with a will to live for ever. In the Bible it says:
Ecclesiastes 3:11 Even time indefinite he has put in their heart! A loving God would never create us with a will to live and then not let us.
The days are coming when we will live forever under perfect conditions. Jesus promised that in John 17:3 where he says: This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ. Another translation says: John 17:3 And this is eternal life that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
So taking in knowledge of this from the Bible is the clue to how to live a happy life forever. There is another wonderful truth in the Holy scriptures that promise a resurrection of the dead loved ones.

"Mourning the death of a loved one is a process all of us will go through at one time or another.

Rando, Ph.D., bereavement specialist and author of Loss And Anticipatory Grief, leads you gently through the painful but necessary process of grieving and helps you find the best way for yourself.
