i probably will be. odds are i will live to be old, i could die in the next 2 minutes, but im not going to be paranoid and not be realistic about my body. and if not i feel more comfortable in my body, have a good sense well being, and it helps my meditation. i am not going to not save my money for retirement because i could be struck by lightning. so i shoudlnt do yoga and arm exercises to assuage my inevitable arthritis im going to get when im an old person, which is what my doctor said would happen because i have a bad shoulder? maybe i should stop doing yoga, then when i DO turn 60 i can be all hunched over and have arthritis and sore muscles. becaue i was so consumed with the fragility of life, because i never did my best.think realistically. percentage wise i will live long, disease might come, best to prevent it with yoga or chi gong, and meditation and right living.
