Death itself is the completion of the spirit/life force transitioning from the body.
Early on we learn life on earth is temporary. Accepting it as fact should ease fear.

Why religious people grieve so much about death and are 'scared to death' of dying if, when they die, the'll be with God forever? What's wrong with dying anyway? Your born condemned to death...Is it not?
