    Would you WANT to know

    Post  Violet on Sat Mar 13, 2010 1:49 am

    This is a kind of off shoot topic from the Advance Notice thread, would you want to know if you were going to pass or would you rather not know and go suddenly?

    It's an interesting question as some form of advance notice of sorts may help a person from being discombobulated upon passing. However knowing ahead of time may create grief, and sadness within a person if they have a family or leave anything left undone.

    I think i'd prefer to know but I wouldn't tell anyone I would quietly get my stuff in order. My feelings might be different as I age though.

    I dunno if I would want to know as it is a very heavy thing to know. If your spirit guides came up to you, and said you were leaving earth tomorrow at 6 Pm. First you would say my time or your time..
    Then so much could be going through your head depending on what is happening in your life. If say a child was going through a hard time at the time. You wouldn't want to leave them at such a time. If your significant other just got laid off. You wouldn't want to leave them either. So in some ways it could be one of the hardest things you could know.

    I'd have to wait for you or Allen to come online and convert it for me

    Seriously though if you had things like that to consider you'd be worried about leaving, so I agree with you there, it would be easier to bear if all your family were settled and happy.

    I don't think there ever is an opportune time to go. I suppose it's a matter of how content you are. I'm sure those that have had painful lives would love to know that it was ending. Some that have lived a full happy life would love to know it as well. More so those that have grieved the loss of someone.
    It's also a matter of what your beliefs are in death, and the after life. Those could also be a huge obstacle to climb if you were gonna die soon.

    I'm one of those who would appreciate knowing. I always feel less anxiety when I have a set time frame for things, a plan.

    I've thought more about this and i'm sure I would too, and I can't see that changing now.

    Hi Tony I meant generally, with no specific timescale, but it would broaden this topic if we were to ask how much notice would you want or need?

    Some famous people believed they would die young and some of them did, I don't know where they got their information from though, it happens, some just know from a very early age when they will die, famous or not.

    I'm trying to think of a famous example for you

    Funny when you speak of this now, it brings back a memory of someone we new that had that look on thier face that something was wrong. They said they had a feeling in their bones that something was bothering them. Then a few days later they were gone.

    I think quick and easy for me....I'm pretty sure I would twig that the final countdown had begun. A long drawn out illness is so painful for relatives and friends to sit and watch....

    Oh gosh, I don't know. I have thought about this recently, too. (My mother and I were seconds away from being in a car accident last month. A really bad one, too).

    I always go back and forth on this question. It's a difficult one for me to answer... at least for now anyway.

    I read about Gordon Smiths teacher, Mrs. Primrose... She wrapped some gifts for her dears (Christmas?), sat on an armchair - and passed away. She knew it.

    A good question. I think it over. First I thought I want to know when I have to die. But only saying goodbye to my tomcats makes it hard...

    I really have to think it over.

    What a lovely and peaceful way to go, she must have understood very well and been totally accepting of it.

    I'm not sure about how I would feel....if I was in dreadful pain,i would just want to 'leave'.     But then again,I would worry about my family....Another reason,to go,is to see what the spirit world was really like.....To be shown and live again in a different world.....To see the truth of what we have believed during our earthly lives....
