What important things do you think people should know?

Asked by antimatter (4411points) March 21st, 2013

I watched a documentary on Albert Einstein and before he passed away he was working on another theory that could have changed the world as we know it, he felt it was so important that he tried to finish moments before he passed away. If you were on your death bed what wisdom or last minute advise would you give to your beloved family and friends for them to improve their lives or what they may use in the future?

Don’t place your happiness in another’s hand.

It does not matter what you want to be true, what matters is what the evidence points towards.

Live in the now, forgive and love each other. Don’t be so driven and future oriented as there’s nothing you need to do, create, solve or save in order to justify your life or make it meaningful and worth living. Just being, living and enjoying small pleasures that get send your way by the Cosmos is enough to be happy.

Don’t bother trying to follow your heart. Hearts are fickle, and they get broken. Following you feelings leads to disaster.
Instead, do what you know will always be right no matter what your heart says. Doing what is right doesn’t always feel right, but it always leads to joy in the end.

The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately sick;
who can understand it?
Jeremiah 17:9

A person may think their own ways are right,
but the LORD weighs the heart.
Proverbs 21:2

Pick your battles. Not every fight is worth fighting.

Be kind. There are already enough mean people in this world, and you don’t need to become one of them.

Very few things in life are within your control. One thing is your weight and physical fitness. Another thing is the way you treat other people. Finally, you can usually control your attitude and demeanor.

Life gets better with age.
As one gets older his/her experiences make them who they become later in life.
Life lessons are subjective, each learns what is required to get on in this lifetime, the sooner one realizes their experiences are for a reason, the better.
Understanding is the key…it will mature in you.
Keeping a life journal helps later in life when you read it in old age you begin to accept yourself and appreciate how far you have come.

Religion: It is most likely bullshit

Sex: Use protection unless you want to have a child, be sure you have consent.

Money: You have it or you don’t. A person’s happiness is neither entirely internal nor entirely external. Find Joy in simple things

Happiness: See the above ^

Health: Do not use the internet to self diagnose if you are in serious pain

Life: Be yourself

Aliens: They are out there, just out of our reach.

Technology: Learn to use it, its only going to become a larger part of life

Food: Grow your own as much as possible

Exercise: Do it, even though it sucks

Diet: Do not eat like an idiot, it may not be a problem at the moment but your habits will catch up with you

People: People will let you down, but respect everyone individually until they give you a reason not to.

Family: Always try to help them.

Friends: Be the best friend you can be to the ones you truly care about

Education: Read, teach yourself knew things everyday

Death: Do not fear it, when it happens you wont care anyway and you’ll finally know whats on the other side.

Morality: Don’t be a dick, if you can help, do it.

Sadness: Misery is often coupled with Joy…it might get worse before it gets better, but it will get better, even better than before.

Race: Color doesn’t matter, we all walk this earth with the same objective, survival.

Death Penalty: Its not good, if one innocent man is put to death for another persons wrong doing then the system is broken.

Truth: Always tell the truth so that when you lie its more believable

Follow these guidelines, you should do just fine.
