A hypothetical situation, but advice needed

misecmisc1misecmisc1 I am a HinduIndia Veteran

Hi All,
Good Morning.
Based on the type of weird person I am, a thought came to my mind that suppose I have only 1 day left to live. So what would you advice me as to what would be the best way to utilize the last 24 hours of my life? I would not be able to meet with my family personally given that I am in Aus and they are in India and the flight availability and transit time would be more than 24 hours. So what would be the best way to utilize the last 24 hours of my life, so that it can be of maximum benefit to me? Any advice. Please suggest. Thanks.

    The best thing would be to put all banal questions out of your mind, make as many phone calls as you can to tell your loved ones you love them, then spend the rest of the time meditating on impermanence.

    Once you're dead, such matters will no longer matter.
    So why do they matter now?
