There are many people who desire to have a long life.

There are many people that would like to live a long life
but they do not like the aging process.

You may know people who are living unhappy lives
and they still want to live a long time.

You also may know people who believe they will go to heaven
and they still want to live a long life.

What are some factors that may drive people to desire a long life?

Perhaps it is the sense of survival in all of us.

Perhaps we are afraid of dying.

Perhaps we are hoping that later on we will become comfortable
with the idea of dying.

Perhaps we are afraid that there will not be an after life
despite what we profess verbally.

Perhaps we are afraid of the responsibilities of the after life
and afraid we may fail at it.

Perhaps we just want to grow to become  
multi-dimensional and multi-emotional human beings.

What are the reasons that you may want a long life?

Is the reason based of a fear of the unknown
or potential joy and growth that living brings you?
