How to balance impermanence and desire (to live)

I thought this was an unusual Q&A on, but the more I thought about it, it may be helpful to people trying to understand mindfulness, impermanence, life, and death, so I thought I’d share it.

FWIW, I went through the near-death experience several times last spring, and this quote from the article pretty much sums up my feelings these days:

Whenever I get nervous about anything these days I say to myself, “What’s the worst that’s going to happen, I’m going to die again? Been there, done that.”
