Questions and Answers About Longevity

Questions and Answers About Longevity

Do you want to live longer, even you may have an autoimmune disease?

The word “longevity” has its origin from the Latin word “longaevitas”, which comes from the word “longus” or long, and “aevu” or age. 

Genes do not cause aging but they do indirectly affect longevity in that they may pre-determine the rate of division, rejuvenation, and regeneration of body cells and organisms.

Consciousness of longevity involves your awareness of preventative intervention and detection of early signs of medical conditions that could potentially affect longevity.

Questions and Answers

To live to 100 and beyond—if you just don’t die—you must ask questions about life; after all, living is about asking questions and seeking answers to the questions asked, and thereby instrumental in providing wisdom or a blueprint to continue the rest of your life journey.

The first question you should consciously ask yourself is: How long do you wish to live? Of course, that is only a hypothetical question because you really don’t have much of a choice—unless you would like to purposely end your life prematurely. Naturally, the answer to that question might also change over different phases in your life, depending on the quality of your life in that particular phase.

The second question you should consciously ask yourself is:
Why do you want to live long, or why not? This question will be naturally followed by the third question: How do you live long, or what can make you desire to live longer?
The final question—if you just don’t die—is: How should you live the rest of your life?

Consciousness Is Everything

Consciousness is, in fact, everything in your life and living. Consciousness is your mental awareness of the self, of others, and of the world around you. Without thinking, which is consciousness of the mind, you are not living; you are simply existing.

Albert Einstein once said, “Thinking is difficult; that’s why so few people do it.” Thinking is a process of self-intuition through asking relevant questions to create self-awareness and self-introspection. It is the natural habit of the human mind to try to solve problems by asking questions. Through solving problems, the mind can then make things happen. Asking relevant questions is self-empowerment of human mind to create wisdom because it creates the intent to learn, to discover, and then to change. Without change, life then becomes static, boring, and ultimately unhappy and meaningless.

If You Just Don’t Die

It is your own consciousness that makes things happen in your life so that you can continue the rest of your life journey and live as if everything is a miracle—even to 100 and beyond, if you just don’t die!
