    I understand why people are scared of death,

    I honestly do. The whole "dose it hurt?" "Will I go to heaven?" ( or whatever you believe) The unknown is scary sure. I'm not scared, why? Because I died before. ........ Just kidding. I'm just not. I guess it's because I don't believe peoples lives have any purpose. And I just...

    Renaissance

    Renaissance means "rebirth" in French. I like this word. I like the way it rolls off my tongue when I say it, and it has a particularly intellectual ring to it that appeals to me. More importantly, a renaissance is something I have experienced. I've met many people who have...

    Having strong spiritual convictions,

    death is the least of my worries and I welcome it whenever it chooses to show up. I believe that this life/world is an illusion and simply a stopover. We are so much more than just a body and mind. We are pure spirit with many past lives and we are connected to each other as...

    lost the fear of death. It's a sad sort of thing to be not afraid to die. I mean death is the great equalizer. No man escapes deaths cold grip it's all in how you go. Me I figure it will be old age but who knows if some lucky shot will get me. I'm just glad I got to do the...

    Thoughts: Weather your'e rich

    or dirt poor, we all share the same fate. Death is not evil, its necessary to erase the old and give birth to the new. Without it balance would be broken, and existence would be pointless. I would rather die and create, than live and forget. To join my ancestors is an honor, so...

    I myself am not afraid of dying.

    I would hate to be widowed, though. I fear I would go crazy.. Like go off the deep end. I am very close to my husband. Spending one night away from him was bad enough.

    The Dying Process

    I believe that death accomplishes the following miraculous things. It replaces time with timelessness. It stretches the boundaries of space to infinity. It reveals the source of life. It brings a new way of knowing that lies beyond the five senses . It reveals the underlining...

    My grandma fought cancer for 9 years and I watched her fight end. It's weird. We all knew it was coming. But to see her heart stop, to watch the person I loved most slip away was so hard. I remember hours before being by her side while she was on life support, holding her hand...

    Death is our one promised destiny in life.

    It is nothing to be afraid of, rather to be accepted. It will happen inevitably.

    As a child, I attended a relative's funeral.

    His face seemed so calm, so free. I was afraid. I thought about when my time would come. But, my grandmother told me, that some day, we all have to go. We are here for a small period of time. It is a long life, but, time flies and the past is left behind. So, breathe freely...

    Death is natural. It's like being afraid of oblivion. It's going to happen and you have no choice in that. You have no choice in your death. For all you know it could be tomorrow, for many different reasons. And that's a weird thought. You could be somebody who's been...
