12 Intimate Acts

A brief existence is common to all things, and yet you avoid and pursue all things as if they would be eternal.
— Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, X.34

Can I apply these "12 Intimate Acts" to my death? No I’m not aware of the timing of my death. Like everyone, always, the timing is unknown. I’m aware that if we don’t actualize these “12 Intimate Acts” in all we do then when death arrives we’ll have regrets. Will I have the strength and courage to face these challenges when my body fails? Will I be able to see through the pain, confused and being alone? I hope so but we’ll see.
