    Friendly Death

    "Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet...

    It is just part of life.

    That is it and why should you be afraid of it.

    The secret of life is to "die

    before you die" --- and find that there is no death.

    So I do so much life threatening stuff I have

    come to terms with death, for instance over this last summer I jumped off of a 30 foot cliff, I have acidentily lit myself on fire, and riled a golf cart down a hill twice. Yah so lol

    I have nearly died a couple of times

    so I don't fear it. I know you have to make the most of the time you have as you never know when it is your time.

    Instead I Fear Life..

    for as long as i have been alive, i have been afraid. afraid of almost every aspect of life. death does not scare me. death is inevitable. it will be, for me, the end of fear. peace at last. "death gotta be easy, cause life is hard. it'll leave you physically, mentally, and...

    Death isn't something we should fear.

    No one is gonna die before their day, sooner or later we're all gonna die. I'm just afraid of what comes after death. I believe that if god doesn't forgive me for my sins I will get punished and that's what I'm afraid of.

    I don't fear death because I've felt like I was

    dead for the longest. Nothing is more fearful in my opinion, then living a dead life....existing instead of thriving and living. Being dead in your spirit is what we should fear, not the shedding of your physical body.

    We live, we die, and we move on to our final

    destination. Whether it is good or bad that is up to our choices in life to decide.

    I'm so unhappy about the death of the

    Australian cricketer who died today. He was only 25 years young and his mother and wife were in the crowd when he was hit by a fatal cricket ball bowled at him. Omg life is so precious and short and our number could be up at any second. Live life to the full and be grateful for...

    I am trapped between my own emotions

    and pain. I can't get out. Every second leaves from my life, I feel like i am more getting trapped in it. I don't feel like I used to feel. My selflessness that I chose once to edify myself, is now hurting me most and my selfishness that I abandoned in hope of for better...

    I have coded 3 times.

    that is the medical term for someone that has died in a hospital. I have been a diabetic for 31 years so on a daily basses I walk with death a little closer than I thing some people do. I know that this out look has affected the way I live and what I would and would not do...

    I had this dream tonight

    that i got shot in the head three times and i didn't die. I tried holding my breath (cause that obviousely helps) to try and die, but i didn't. When someone ("normal people") wakes up from a dream they die in they probably are confused or a little scared or something. When i...

    I have seen human life end, up close and personal... there are so many things worse than death: mainly, an unlived life.

    I can honestly say that I do not fear death -

    mainly because I had to confront my own mortality a number of times and have even been clinically dead more than once. When I was 21 i saw a gastroenterologist to investigate the cause of abnormal liver function tests. This guy had terrible bedside manner and flat out told me...

    I'm not sure many people realize

    that there's a difference between wishing for death, and simply being unafraid. Persistence of suicidal thoughts doesn't equate to fearlessness. Many people who consider committing suicide, still find themselves afraid of the end and what it might be like, and generally never...

    Nope, I think dying is a gift.

    I sometimes feel like the dead or the ones feeling sorry for the living and the living should be the ones envying the dead. Dying means I've done my part and fulfilled my purpose so there is nothing better then leaving the earth. I don't think dying is something to fear, it's a...

    I have been with many people

    when they died. As a nurse I have always tried to sit with a person if they were alone when death was near. My wife and I sat with my father as he passed away. I would often tell them that they were tired. That it was ok to rest. Always talking to them and reasuring them. In my...

    Do you ever catch yourself wishing

    for it? If a car randomly sped by and just ended it all. Not going to end my life myself but I wouldn't be upset if someone did it for me.

    I was gone (dead) twice.

    Once drowning when i was about 5 or 6 and giving birth. No one in my family or circle of friends really know this, t as i tried to explain to someone the other day. Once u experience death and see how beautiful it is, life on earth in flesh and blood is very depressing. Its...

    I probably fear life more

    than I fear death. There are far worse things in life than there are in death. I’d like to think of death as a liberation of struggles, diseases, physical and mental pain, and obligations. It’s perhaps also an eradication of potential and possibilities, but all of these are...

    The great thing about life is

    that it goes on, It's Gods Gift. The ultimate secret of life, is the sure knowledge of death, for without it man would not strive to leave his mark upon the earth.

    To me death is a mere desperation of illusion.

    I believe in no god, so i have no fear of being cast into the depths of hell or being punished for my unforgiven sins. Life is a game to me, some play to win, some play for the fun and some want to quit. If i only live to die, why not go out with a bang

    when i was a 6 year old boy. My sister's death sure was a valuable lesson. Ever since i haven't been afraid to die because i accepted the fact that we all eventually will die so why fear? is like being afraid to breath, to eat, to take a shower, it is like being afraid to live...
