If I had only 24 hours to live, I would do as many positive things as I could in my final hours. I would start the day with the usual activities, for instance, cleaning the house and making breakfast for my family. Then, I would visit the temple to pray and have a Dhamma talk with the monk. In the afternoon, I would buy lots of food and give it to the poor. If I had more money, I would give half of it to them and the rest of the money to my family. And lastly, I would spend half of my last day with my mom and
brothers. I would have a serious talk and have a special last dinner with them.
