Why is death such a bad thing? Who decides that death is a bad thing? Is this an innate fear, a media invention, or combination? Shouldn't we all look forward to death? Not in the sad suicide, unhealthy way. But perhaps in a different, more productive way?
I believe in the afterlife. For me, it holds more hope and joy than this life. Death is not something to fear, but it's simply a crossing. There is great sadness in saying goodbye to the ones you love, but it is temporary. Even that pain lessens in time.
I do not see death as a bad thing. For those that have lived a full life death can and should be a normal, and expected thing.
I wonder if there are ppl out there who do not expect it.
Since the human body is about $5 (USD) worth in chemical elements, and when decomposed after death, that could be recycled into a new life(s) form, considering that everything has a life cycle. Who knows, in a way, the folks that thought up reincarnation (obviously they're thinking in a spiritual way) may unknowingly be on to something. But I don't know, you don't know, nobody knows.
