I think about it every day and have for many years. I think that's why I get sad when I loose friends or important people in my life. I do need to really try to enjoy more of life though. Enjoy yours :)
It scars the doo-doo out of me.
I have been a little too close to immediate death a couple of times. I was not prepared, and two of those times had me shaken for awhile. I have found that I really dislike pain.
I am not in any hurry.
It does not bother me, because I am a believer in Christ. Every second that goes by, is one second closer to my meeting my Creator. I believe that there is another life, after this one, because the Bible tells me so. So, looking at this earthly life, it's all temporary, anyway. The next life is for eternity.
I do, sometimes think about all the wasted time here, over nonsense. We could be doing something much more significant, other than bickering and stupid stuff.
I'm trying to come to terms with it. I think people should learn to accept it because it's inevitable. There is no way to get out of it. All of us are dying right now. It makes life seem pointless, doesn't it? You're born, you learn to play the human game, and then you die. Gone and forgotten-what was it all for?
For whatever the reason, Death is an inevitable fact of life to be dealt with in whatever way you deem necessary!!!
Time as we're taught, is an illusion, throw away the clock and calender and live!!!!!
EP allows you to extend the length of timeto answer questions as long as you desire on the page that you write the question.
if someone will die someday..he is allready dead. so if we are allready dead we have nothing to lose or be afraid of.we are not alive or dead we just are.
I feel every sensation in life to its fullest. That is how everyone should feel about dying.
The first thought in your head of every second is, "I am going to die one day, what do I feel is important to do while im here?"
If someone fears death, they fear life, because one can not exist without the other. The only real answer for what is death and why do we die, can only be guesses by religion and science. No one know the real answer, so until we do, find something that you want to accomplish before you die, its all we can do until an answer is found.
And also make sure you never trump others rules for living, because they only do what they feel is best. No different then you or me.
The reverse, How do you feel about living in the world were in?
I'm sure most of us fear the unknown, but look to the skies and one day there will be peace in the heavens and eternal life. I hate to view it any other way. God loves us and on this earth it was or is just a test. Hopefully our death won't be painful and we will go peacefully in our sleep. Haunted5
I don't feel about it
I definitely don't waste my precious time worrying about when death might come. I live every moment to the fullest.
What was the Question again?....I have a lack of patience
span thing!...I managed the first few words and gave up!
....W E A R E ...A L L ....D Y I N G!!.....Live with it!!
Getting used to it at my age.
I'm glad, I just wish it'd get a move on already. I'm focking tired of this shite.
Your born. You live. You die. Its what you do in between that counts! None of use are getting out alive! So i have no fear of dying.
It doesn't matter how anyone feels, it is going to happen. I don't understand why people say they don't fear death. It is unnatural not to.
And now we discover why people made up religion. Just an attempt to give meaning to the pointlessness that is life. You're here, then you're not. The rest move on. Try not to think about it or delude yourself into a forever life with "god".
Be here now, and live life - that's all that matters, death will come soon enough."Dying", "Death" - they're just words, just labels. Pointers to the door we who have been born must walk through eventually.
It's perfectly natural and nothing to fear. I live my life now, in this present moment, unconcerned about the past, and not worrying about the future - for these are illusions as well.
I have always been aware of this and when I was young, it made life seem pointless. Now I am older and wiser, I find myself accepting this and see it as just a cycle of life. I see life now as a magical gift and appreciate each moment I am lucky enough to live. The only thing about the 'ticking clock' that phases me, is that there is so much I want to achieve in a very short time. I wish I had not wasted time when I was young, but then most young people think that death is so far away. It is only as time passes that you realise it is not! I feel when you are young that you think the world centers around you alone. It is only when you are older you realise you are just a little speck in time and that you are pretty insignificant in the 'Grand scale of things'. You are just a tiny part of the bigger picture. Some of us have an effect on the bigger picture and it's progression and some of us just come along for the ride.
Once I saw your question my mind directly went to (Don't Be Sad) book written by Dr. Abdulla Al Qarni. In chapter (Today is all that you have) he said:
When you wake up in the morning, do not expect to see the evening live as though today is all that you have. Yesterday has passed with its good and evil, while tomorrow has not yet arrived. Your life's span is but one day, as if you were born in it and will die at the end of it.
With this attitude, you will not be caught between an obsession over the past, with all its anxieties, and the hopes of the future, with all its uncertainty. Live for today: During this day you should pray with a wakeful heart, recite the Qur'an with understanding, and remember Allah with sincerity. In this day you should be balanced in your affairs, satisfied with your allotted portion, concerned with your appearance and health.
Organize the hours of this day, so that you make years out of minutes and months out of seconds. Seek forgiveness from your Lord, remember Him, prepare for the final parting from this world, and live today happily and at peace. Be content with your sustenance, your wife, your children, your work, your house and your station in life.
So hold that which I have given you and be of the grateful. (Qur'an 7: 144)
You must engrave onto your heart one phrase: Today is my only day. If you have eaten warm, fresh bread today, then what do yesterday's dry, rotten bread and tomorrow's anticipated bread matter?
If you are truthful with yourself and have a firm, solid resolve, you will undoubtedly convince yourself of the following: Today is my last day to live. When you achieve this attitude, you will profit from every moment of your day, by developing your personality, expanding your abilities, and purifying your deeds. Then you say to yourself:
Today I shall be refined in my speech and will utter neither evil speech nor obscenity. Also, I shall not backbite.
Today I shall organize my house and my office. They will not be disorderly and chaotic, but organized and neat.
Today I will be particular about my bodily cleanliness and appearance. I will be meticulous in my neatness and balanced in my walk, talk, and actions.
Today I will strive to be obedient to my Lord, pray in the best manner possible, do more voluntary acts of righteousness, recite the Qur'an, and read beneficial books. I will plant goodness into my heart and extract from it the roots of evil such as pride, jealousy, and hypocrisy.
Today I will try to help others to visit the sick, to attend a funeral, to guide the one who is lost, and to feed the hungry. I will stand side by side with the oppressed and the weak. I will pay respect to the scholar, be merciful to the young, and reverent to the old.
O' past that has departed and is gone, I will not cry over you. You will not see me remembering you, not even for a moment, because you have traveled away from me never to return.
O' future, you are in the realm of the unseen, so I will not be obsessed by your dreams. I will not be preoccupied about what is to come because tomorrow is nothing and has not yet been created.
`Today is my only day' is one of the most important statements in the dictionary of happiness, for those who desire to live life in its fullest splendor and brilliance.
Death is a fact. It won't knock on your door to get permission. So always prepare yourself for that moment as it's the first phace of The Doomsday!
Please feel free to send me if you would like to discuss more :-)
It's natural. Therefore it doesn't bother me. I'll just enjoy and do what I can to help my fellow men and nature while I'm still alive.
Life and death are two things that are intertwined together. It is not something separate or distinct from each other.
