Are you in touch with your own mortality and all of its implications?
Yes, but I haven't been in any close-death experiences yet. Sometimes I do have suicidal thoughts, but I readily accept the fact that I can die any minute.
Is it of benefit to be in touch with our mortality?
Yes. You don't really have to fear death and you are ready for it when it comes.
What can a person do to be better in touch with their own mortality?
I really don't know. I guess religion gives you some kind of hope, like going to heaven after you die. So it does help people comprehend with death, especially little kids.
