Robert Heinlein, a science fiction writer of the 70's. wrote a book called , "Time Enough for Love", about a character who was seemingly immortal. Despite the "racy" content, it is a very thought-provoking book, and makes me wonder about what it would be like to live 3,000 years.
Would you like to be a Lazarus Long? Or would you rather stick to the status quo?
I remember watching some Bashar a while back and there was a very interesting idea put forward.
As you live more and more in the present moment with a feeling of excitement, the present moment becomes longer and longer...a bit like those times when you are so engaged in something that you suddenly realize that several hours have gone past and it is now the end of the day.
I'm paraphrasing but I believe Bashar was saying that it is possible to live your life that way and your physical life will actually extend as a result.
To others, it will appear that you are living an immortal-ish life but for you the passage of time (and experience) will still feel the same.
In effect, those moments of total engagement allow you to step outside of physical time.
Just stumbled across this snippet from Bashar, which I've not heard before, talking exactly about this idea...
With immortality we could visit other planets, establish colonies, travel to other galaxies, it does not matter if it will take ten billion years no big deal that is drop in the bucket compared to eternity.
Our knowledge would increase over all these years maybe we would know every language of Earth fluently, think of it with all this time to spend learning we could achieve totally amazing feats.
Aging would have to be conquered as well as degeneration of the brain, it would be a horror to live forever in a state of Alzheimers and not be able to take care of one self. On the other hand living forever like this eventually when they find a cure you can be cured.

Living forever, you lose the drive. There's no need to prioritize, no need to grow, improve, no fire within. The pressure is taken of you. I could see how one goes on a billion years wasteful limb. You can see what happens, even today people act as if they had forever to live. And that makes them live dull lives.
See how approach to life game changes if you think today is the last day of your life. You live quite fully that day.

Personally, I would not want to be immortal. I don't like the idea of outliving all of my loved ones and eventually being alone in the world with no one to share everything with.
But, (you heard that but coming, didn't you?) on the other hand, if one was immortal there would be no fear and you could do anything you wanted to do such as sky diving or cliff diving, traveling the entire world, going into the future without even realizing it. That would be exciting.
I am probably missing the whole point here, right? But just to answer the original question, I'd rather go to wherever our souls go after our physical body dies and be reunited with all my loved ones that have already passed and prepare to return to life in a new body with a new family in order to learn even more lessons.

The idea of immortality has fascinated humanity even since the invention of storytelling. But what has been the realm of myth and fiction is now being explored as a possibility. Scientists are talking about the very real possibility of extending our lives to a couple of hundred of years. Many believe that the first batch of people living to 200 years of age are living today.
Furthermore, the possibility of immortality is considered a certainty by many channeled beings such as Bashar, Abraham-Hicks, and others. Moreover, Russian scientist-mystics have developed work that they believe makes immortality a reality. The most prominent is the controversial figure, Grigori Grabovoi (you can find his work all over the internet, on Amazon.com, and Scribd.com). I know people who work with his system who claim to have helped a woman grow back her ovaries, and other organs, among other miraculous stuff.
You can also look at the work of Vadim Zeland, another Russian who developed Reality Transurfing. He is a quantum physicist who developed a system using principles of quantum theory to create your reality. One of his students, Renee Garcia, claims to have reversed her age by 15 years using his techniques. She is on YouTube and also has a Facebook group. You can find Zeland's books on Amazon and also find his audiobooks on YouTube.
Also, there is the work of Julie Renee Doering (julierenee.com) who claims to use the quantum realm to regrow organs, increase longevity, cure cancer, and has many testimonials from a gallery of Who's Who in the self-development field who swear by her work. The most notable is Jack Canfield who went through her Brain Rejuvenation program after developing age-related memory problems. He claims her program fixed this.
So long story short: there are some incredible techniques available. While you should have a healthy amount of skepticism, a lot is changing in our world.
Could it be that our rockets of desire through the Law of Attraction has made some of these things a reality?
