"Thanks for expanding your thought. I can't quite grasp how any of those conditions would require that I relinquish my dignity. Is not the path thru the last moments of leaving this physical plane still the 'same' path, and therefore the right path (because it's mine & personal)? Oh! I just had a flash of personal insight...gotta go. But thanks. This has never happened to me online before... Thanks."
What struck me, like a flash, in the midst of writing this comment (above) on a post, is that I heard him the way I did so that I could notice that I - I have looked at old people in various distances from that 'window' and felt pity for them - which is me stripping them of dignity. In. My. Own. Heart.
And in the 'flash' I knew that those people lost nothing because I was only semi-conscious and had no spiritual maturity. Their dignity is internal, as is mine. So I needn't fear that I may become a drooling fool and no one will love me. It won't matter whether they do or they don't, or whether ...
Well...it was a cool flash. I won't lose it. It's a lot to grasp all at once.
I love my life.
