He mentions that he learned "dying is not scary", and that resonated. While it does not compare to the terror of being on a crashing plane, I was once moments from death (bee allergy), and in shock. I calmly sat there (while my wife ran around looking for the Epi Pen) unable to see (other than a grey haze) and thinking 'I am dying' while having absolutely no emotion about it whatsoever. It was matter of fact. That was due to being in shock according to the doctor. But it was kind of cool knowing that when you go into shock pre-death, you feel totally at peace.
That's my story and while I feel I have a lot of work left to do on my ego, I think what this gentleman has to say can help us all. Especially in living each moment and gaining perspective toward the abstract environment in which you and I operate; namely the financial markets. Thanks Julian, for passing this along.
