You Just Don't Die!

YOU JUST DON’T DIE!” 

This 154-page book is about how to live your life as if everything is a miracle if you just don’t die as you continue with you life journey with the many changes and challenges confronting you, including your loss of vision.

Human existence is meaningless without life purpose and human happiness. The pursuit of longevity has been going on since time immemorial. Consciousness holds the key to the success of this pursuit. Consciousness of living is wisdom of the mind to understand the self, others, as well as how and why certain things happen. Wisdom in living enables one to complete the rest of one's life journey and reaching the destination.

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 I 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 may 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 I want to live long, or why not?" This question will be naturally followed by the third question: “How do I live long, or what can make me desire to live longer?”

The final question—if you just don’t die—is: "How should I live the rest of my life to overcome my daily problems and life challenges?"

The objective of this 154-page book is neither to convince you to crave longevity, nor to show you how to live to one hundred and beyond. It simply presents you with the consciousness of living the rest of your years—if you just don’t die!

Cancer Scare

Attachment is a sign of fear -- fear of losing something we hold onto, such as life. Therefore, to be diagnosed with cancer is a traumatic experience for anyone who is attached to life. A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with cancer. A biopsy was scheduled and performed. It turned out that it was negative: it was just a viral infection that could be treated with antibiotics. What a relief! Imagine the days of anguish and trauma prior to the biopsy, and the anxiety while waiting for the result of the biopsy.
Unfortunately, many have undergone such similar excruciating experience when they were wrongly diagnosed, and, worse, when they were positively confirmed that they had cancer. But that is life: bad things do happen to good people, and misfortunes, such as diseases and tragedies, are sometimes unavoidable.
What can we do if we find ourselves in such an unfortunate situation, such as a positive cancer diagnosis? First and foremost, we must accept the reality. This might be an opportunity for letting go -- letting go of attachments in life, including the attachment to any pre-conditioned thinking that a cancer diagnosis is a death sentence, or that most cancers are incurable. Letting go, ironically enough, is a release from the bondage of anxiety and fear of the unknown. Letting go, surprisingly, provides peace and clarity of mind.
Given that cancer is a complex and multi-faceted disease involving many different body systems, organs, and tissues, we must be knowledgeable, and do not simply rely on the opinion of just one doctor. We must seek second or even third opinion, and keep an open mind for other alternative treatment options. In addition, there are many options for cancer treatments.
The next thing to do is to have a calm and open mind. We must not feel distressed, and we must be prepared to change our mindset—just as George Bernard Shaw once said: “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” We must have the right mindset to combat the cancer.
It is important to remember that in life something good may come out of something bad, and when God closes a door He may also open a window. Without a close member of my family being misdiagnosed with cancer, I would not written a book entitled: Congratulation! You've Got Cancer.
My book is about what to do when one is diagnosed with cancer.  I am neither a doctor nor an oncologist. In my book, I simply show the power of the mind not only in coping with the traumatic experience of cancer but also in overcoming the disease itself. In addition, I present detailed information on what an individual must do on the cancer journey of cure and recovery. A cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence. Rather, it is an opportunity for growth and development. We must increase mind power to conquer the cancer.
