Perhaps the calmness you felt was the meds they give you to chill out and/or the anesthesia.. I've heard many stories of ppl about to go under feeling 'good' and they were not dying.

I went to a comic con in Seattle a few months ago(post-heart attack) and Kevin was a panel moderator and also did photo ops with fans. In most photo ops, you go in, picture, DONE! Hardly even get a chance to make eye contact with the person. Kevin took the time to speak to each and every person, COMPLETELY Ignoring the photographer telling him to hurry. He’s such an incredible person and I’m blessed to have been able to tell him how much him and his work meant to me and how happy I am for his good health.

He makes a good pount at 13:05. Nicholas Meyer made arguably the best _Star Trek_ film, *_Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan,_* and he was not that familiar with _Star Trek_ to begin with. So certainly not a fan in that sense.

Wait a year, and he’ll be back at his fighting weight, pretty hard to keep up the regime to stay at the weight he’s at, after decades of inactivity and obesity. Wish him luck, I’ve been down the same road and know the immense discipline it takes to maintain the behaviour you need to exhibit to stay healthy.

Vaegans eh. I'm a vegetarian and was raised on, and my cholesterol is just fine. My weight is fine. Living healthy is easier when you don't eat meat. So you can mess around with other stuff, like having some more sugar/fat once and a while, with less repercussions.

WHEN did he talk about what he's most excited about in Avengers 4? I didn't even hear it. Am I deaf? All I can find of him mentioning A4 is a hypothetical situation where he's saying "Thanos wouldn't do that".

If you don't feel pain it's worst. It means you're dying...
WhyteLis21 - Πριν 4 μήνες
Philip Ho I'm sure everyone wants to live. But having cancer and living with it as you suffer is worst. Just think about your inner self burning and killing you from the inside out. The pain is unimaginable for those who has to suffer living with cancer which I personally seen it with my relatives and families. I hope not to experience it in my life time. One of them was lucky enough to survive a stroke but now has to live with not remembering his love ones as well as not remembering anything much at all. I would much rather die feeling pain free as much as possible. We all will die and fade away. Living physically and suffering pain is already a punishment enough in this life, why suffer more in another? Thats just how I view the world be a human being. 😊

His mother was attached to things in the world when she died she freed herself, In Sikhism this term is called “Moh” it conveys a sense of being cheated of consciousness (delusion) as well as an attitude of attachment for the mundane.
In a way, delusion is more general and exhaustive in mean ing and may include the attachment born out of wrong views. It is the general view of the schools of philosophy in India, except Carvaka, that the world is phenomenal and only relatively real, that is, it is non-permanent and, therefore, any attachment to it, in the sense of taking it to be the reality, is evil. The central theme of Buddhism may be viewed in this sense when suffering is said to be caused by mistaking that which is changing to be eternal. Guru Nanak says, "The whole world is engulfed by mundane values and attachment to it."' At an-other place he says, "Mob creates the family ; through mob are all works. Rid yourself then of moh, for it leads to nothing but sin. 0, thou brave one, shed your moh and doubt." The fifth Guru addresses to this propensity thus : "0, unconquer-able, 0 powerful hero of the battle-field, that moves down every thing before it. It has enticed away the hearts of even the gods and their attendants, heavenly musicians, the men, animal life and the birds."
Nature of moh
The preceding passages reveal to us the nature of moh and the behaviour pattern of the individual moved by it, as well as its psychological charge. We may recognise that it is a tendency whereby men cling to the things with which they identify themselves, that is, the family, wealth, etc. This tenacity ulti-mately reduces the individual's chance of viewing things in the right perspective. It narrows down the individual's outlook and may, therefore, help cause and feed his narrow prejudices. It is all pervasive. The reference in supra quotes to heavenly musicians, gods, etc., have been drawn from the Indian mythology just to bring out this meaning clearly. Moh may be the outcome of one's ignorance of the real and the changing nature of the things of this world and thus, in a way, it may be said to be the result of delusion. However, we should note the fact that the brave one is indicated to have the possibility of shedding it.
Behaviour pattern of the individual under moh
The individual under molt manifests a remarkable tenacity towards the things near and dear to him and, therefore, he may show a complete disregard for the things which are beyond his circle of preferences. It may thus arise from the egoistic feel¬ings and also be fed by the egoistic acts thereby creating a sort of a vicious circle.
Moh also perplexes the individual and casts him into doubt as to the real value of things. iewed in this sense it may be understood to create hesitation and, therefore, partially inhibit the individual in his activities.
The individual moved by it may be continuously enveloped in a sort of morbidity and because all the things to which one is attached do not survive for ever, in this everchanging Heraclitian world, the moment one is forced to part with the object of one's attachment one is bound to feel morose and lugubrious. It is in this sense that Buddha taught one to adopt an attitude of non-attachment to things if one wanted to avoid pain and sorrow. But, it may be relevant to remind ourselves, that in Sikhism the ideal life is that of the householder and, therefore, the attitude of non-attachment is to be viewed in the same perspective. The non-attachment, therefore, is to be a matter of the attitude and is not to be realized by leaving the home and running away from social responsibilities.
Psychological charge of moh
Moh (in the passages already referred to) has, by the Guru, been called the unconquerable and also the powerful hero of the battle-field. This description is sufficiently lucid to describe the psychological power which this motive may command and may, therefore, even overrule other motives which may be higher in the ethical scale The individual who is able to escape from the command of this tendency has been called brave? This reminds us of a similar view expressed in the Bhagavadgita (II, 31) by Sri Krisna in his sermon to Arjuna who was overcome, in the battle-field, by this attachment for his kith and kin against whom he hesitated to take up arms (I, 29). In this incident Bhagavadgita amply brings out the threat this propensity poses to one's sense of duty.
The reference to the mythological stories of Hinduism has been made here to show that the influence of this propensity may extend even to persons who may appear to have attained some spiritual discipline; a warning that one has to continuously watch against it, which, incidentally, also indicates its great psychological power.
Here it may be added that the consciousness of the fact that a certain amount of affection might be inevitable when the life of the house-holder is held to be desirable and preferred to that of the ascetic, appears to have led the author of the Prem¬sumdrag to add the word "very much"—thus holding that one should not be very much attached. This attempt, coming after the tenth Guru, could be seen as an attempt to rationalise, what to the author of the Premsumcirag, seemed to be an arduous and difficult task. The texts in the Adi Granth, however, do not generally appear to grant this relaxation. An attitude of detachment seems to be the ideal cherished therein. This absence of attachment, which may be distinguished from apathy, may be seen as the necessary spirit which sustained Sikhism, historically, during the period of its persecution. This amply provided for the attitude necessary for making sacrifices for a cause. In a way in Islam, the tradition of bakar-id could also be viewed as an attempt in the similar direction.
A scholar of Hinduism, Swami Ramakrishnananda, asks the question, "How does attachment come ?" and himself proceeds to answer that the "man who makes much of sensual enjoyment, who thinks that out of sounds, forms and touches alone enjoy¬ment can come, naturally becomes attached to them ... A man thinks 'I want to be happy only in the world, and nowhere else can I be happy' and out of this belief attachment for the world springs up." This process of the development of attach¬ment appears to be accepted in Sikhism also, except that, in Sikhism it is impressed upon the seeker that the cultivation of non-attachment has to be carried on within the context of social participation. Non-attachment, in Sikhism, is not equated with renunciation of social duties, or asceticism. The ideal stressed by the Gurus in this regard is that one ought to live in the world just as the lotus flower lives in water. The flower is in the water and is yet unaffected by it in the sense that it does not sink in the water. Similarly, man should not renounce the social context but at the same time he ought not to be attached to it.

Yello Duzzit Sikhs do not believe that Jesus is God. Rather Sikhs believe that there is only one God, Ek Onkar means "God is One." Ek Onkar forms the cornerstone of Sikh belief in the unity and oneness of God. God is neither born and nor does God die; God is neither He nor She. God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and all knowing and thus is everywhere, in everything and can do anything and everything. When someone speaks of a man being God, it is wrong because a man cannot be God, but more correctly a man can be one with God or of the same 'light' as God. Sikhs do not discount that Jesus may have merged with God, but Sikhs do not believe that Jesus is God.
