Life’s a joke and you’re the punchline

When someone is on their deathbed and will surely be dead in an hour, we tell them to forget their worries (mostly obligations, grudges and guilt) as they are insignificant since that person will be gone soon. We tell them that they should focus on the more important things. I assume that we would tell a dying person who will be gone in two weeks the same thing, as well as someone with a month, two months, two months and two days… but, what about two months and three days? What about three months? Six months? Exactly how long before we are to die should we forget our worries as insignificant and stop focusing on them? You are dying from the moment you are born, so I have to ask… are you worrying about anything insignificant now? If so, why haven’t you stopped yet?
