    Living Free Of Fear

    I was a member of the LDS / Mormon organization, an organization that like many other religious groups maintains control through fear. Fear of retribution, fear of eternal damnation, fear of not belonging to the "One True Faith". Members, most descent and good people, are...

    Do Not Fear Death

    We all know when we were born and we all don't know when we'll die.  I personally do not fear death, I just hope when my time will come, I won't be in any pain.

    I don't fear death because it can come at

    anytime. I just what I love to do with the time I have, and I'll continue to do those things until I can't and I'll die happy.

    Imagine taking a drug

    Although I'm Not Sure...

    I'm curious about the experience & what, if anything, happens then. I expect to die in the not too distant future, doubting any kind of immortality. Life is fun, but also pain (also the fun). I wouldn't care to hang around with alzheimers or similar ... what I've seen of aged...

    I knew that religion is full of illegible

    I See No Reason To

    Everything on this planet has a time limit, so why bother worrying about it? I know I'm going to die one day, but that's still pretty far off and it doesn't really concern me.What concerns me is how I live my life BEFORE I die. I'm not expecting to make some huge impact on the...

    Lord Hades is my creator he is the one

    who created me to become deaths second half. I worship Hades the god of the dead. I call Hades my father because he is the one that created me as a spirit of death which means if death it's self fails to bring death to a soul. I will step in to plan the second death.

    Why I Do Not Fear Death

    I used to be worried about death, and to a degree, I still am, but ultimately, no, I am not afraid of death. Like everyone else in the world, I have reasons to fear things and to not fear things. One of the things that does not really scare me is the prospect of death. Without...

    Death Will Come For Us All

    Let me just say I don't fear death because sooner or later we're all going to be die anyway. I just live life to the fullest and I live it each and everyday because you never know if today or tomorrow maybe your last day here on earth. I live for the moment and I walk on a thin...

    Fear No Death

    Maybe dying, and how it may go. And if I don't fear death then why haven't I stopped fearing life and concerning myself with what others may think or react to my real thoughts? "good, you?" Has become a trained response when people ask how I'm doing. I rarely speak my mind...

    I do not fear death, the manifestation

    nor the action of dying. What I fear is the pain that comes with it. I force myself to believe it's the only way out, if I just took my own life I could end this tragedy, put everyone else out of their misery thus ending my own. I long for death itself, but to abandon the few...

    I kind of want to die .

    I'm not saying I'm going to commit suicide, but if I was crushed by a piece of heavy equipment, or the roof caved in on me, or choked on my vomit in my sleep I wouldn't mind. I just want to go in an unexpected way

    I Didn't Use To, But Now?

    I haven't feared death for a long time now. Death was familiar. Death took many that I loved. It wasn't that I thought I'd join them, but I saw that life went on. I saw that I would one day be planted in the ground too. And all the problems, and all the joys, all the worries...

    There isn't a logical point to being afraid to

    die. It's a natural part of life, and will happen to all of us. The point was never to hide under the blanket, dreading the day, nor was it to get from point A to point Z. It is always the journey getting there, and the pathway you choose to take to live the best life you can...

    Only Natural

    Let me start by saying that my feelings on death are not attributable to any religious dogma. Everything that lives likewise, dies. I believe that the willful persistence against death is wholly unnatural. It is one thing to fight against your own death when you are young and...

    No Reason

    I've danced at the edge of Death's chasm before.  Many times.  By now, I see no call for fear.  Death is but the shadow side of life, the dark side that as creatures of the Light we cannot yet know.I've seen true evil and horror here on this side of the gap; I see no reason to...
