I had an interesting question from my girlfriend. She was picking up some milk at the grocery store and was looking at the expiration date. She heard a question "what is my expiration date?

Seems like the most simple activities brings us the most profound questions. I told her that this would be a great question for Inward Quest. She asked me to pose the question on her behalf.

Not exactly an expiration date, but our bodies are designed specifically to break down over time. It's part of nature's design; were this not so, the earth would quickly become overpopulated. War has the same function, more or less.

I have heard people talk a lot about one's checkout time; "Well, it was his time to go." I no longer believe in such a date, for a number of reasons. People think of them as expiration dates because it is their way of finding purpose in seemingly meaningless and random events. "When my dad died, I changed the way I think about things, and now I treat my life with more respect." Not because his dad died, but because he used that event as an opportunity to learn something about his own life.

everyform born in nature has an epiration, a cycle of action and then rest,
and would you believe a rebirth to gain the wisdom of our next stage in growth;
we, by our ignorance and/or karma, may shorten the duration of our current earthly experience,
as well as, lenghten it by/through right action,
so, i'd have to say in this respect we do have an expiration date.

i would say only if you decide you have one.(free will) or if you have accident or something that destroy your body then you will probably chose to leave this world. (free will) so experiance life and enjoy. make wise choice.

I want to give you a different point of view. There is no death and no expiration date to the true nature of man. We are spirit and spirit is Life and therefore life is all there is. Life cannot die and life is everlasting.

Of course our bodies do what we think is die but atomic particles that made up our bodies will simply make up something else so you see even our bodies are recycable.

On the so called death of the human body we simply transmute to something else while our true selves, our spirits, go home to God.

This answer is not for everybody for as humanity evelves so does the need to understand. Paulina

Absolutely yes, the price for life is death, although the expiration date may differ for each of us!
