Those who fear death must believe in an afterlife as a reward for living a good life and have a few doubts about their report card.
I do not fear death. I believe that when I am dead, I am dead, end of story. Death is nothingness and to fear nothing would be an complete waste of the time you get to live. So is devoting your life to pointing out to everyone and his brother that they dont live up to the same ideals you are incapable of living up to.
I can't help but wonder if some don't feel that if they can point out enough of the failings of other people, their short coming will be ignored.
I do not fear death ...
For I am to live for The Ordained duration of my worldly life, and then very certainly, I am to die one day ... though I do not know the day, or the moment, or how ... but I know, I will die ... not a moment before, nor a moment after ... but "at" The Ordained Moment.
The Glorious Koran States:
"All born, must Taste death "...
Thus, Death, Is The Law, that Governs all Life ... hence, the only certainty in this worldly life ... everything else is relative. Because, we have been Granted the Will and the Power, to Do, and Believe, exactly as we Please, and He hath Shown us The Right Way of living our worldly Life.
In True Belief ... we Know The Existential's Reality.
Whereas Fear ... my friend, is the name of a "mental state" or our disposition's Orientation ... Fear is the way of the Unjust; and the ignorants ... but it is Normal, to Fear the Unknown ... a person, state, thing, or an eventuality ...
When we do not know ... meaning, indulge in the ignorance of denying Truth, we tend to be Fearful. But ... those who Believe In The Word of God, know, "we" do not come to an end with our worldly Death ... we enter the Domain Eternal, of God.
May The Merciful, The Beneficent, God, Grant us, His Created, Guidance, The Leave to Repent, and mend our Ways, then Grant us,
a Peaceful end, of His Ordained, worldly life, and Resurrect us, unto His Eternally Glorious Presence, in Peace and Happiness. Amen.
No, but I do think about how I will die ... when the time comes. Hope it's not a painful death.
Yeah, reeeeaaaaally don't want to die painfully. I'm not scared of dying though, I am fascinated by what's next. I can't believe that we're not around for billions of years, then we are for <100, then we're not again for the rest of existance. There's gotta be something else, and I bet it's as awesome as this!
I'm more upset over having to lose a loved one while I'm still alive.
I don't fear Mr. Death, but I enjoy my life far too much to go out quietly, that's for sure. When Death comes-a-knockin' at my door, he will find me ready for a fight and he'll have to drag me kicking and screaming all the way to the afterlife!
Nope. I'm fine with it. I'm more afraid of a long life, specially now that this world is getting seriously infected by heartless people and demoralization.
No gettin around it. Quite frankly I think some people fear life.
I have been diagnosed with chronic insomnia and parasomnia which pretty much means I have Night Terrors almost every night in which I never sleep. In some of these night terrors I do die and it always seems more peaceful to me than anything else. Not that I'm suicidal at all but it makes me not fear it but embrace the fact that one day I will peacefully take my leave from this planet Earth to a better place where ever that may be.
I had a near death experience, that’s why I know I don't fear death.
I could lose any part of my body except my brain, I would rather die than to be part of someone vegetable garden.
mylife, can or will your insomnia get better?
I have to take anxiety medications and they have me on constant Valium supply. I try to meditate and try to calm my self down at nights but they said it might be something I have to live with the rest of my life...I've come to the realization that it's a part of who I am though so I don't get down about it or feel like I am truly disabled or crazy in any sort of way.
But there's always hope that eventually the Insomnia will go away. Slim chance but hope is what keeps life going everyday for everyone anyway right?
I don't really fear death, but I do worry about dying. You know, am I gonna suffer? Will it be long and drawn out?
I fear nothing but 'the block', which thing I have never had, yit. Oh, and my wife.
Nope, no fear, but like many others, I kinda wonder about the manner by which it may occur.
It may sound weird, but if I had to pick a way to go out besides the peaceful-in-my-sleep, it would be in a plane crash. I've always had a morbid curiosity as to what those final moments are like.
Told you it was weird....
...no fear....hope i'm havin' fun at the time....yeehaw! and then lites out!......and then my party starts....
No. Why, am I supposed to? huh. The process of death sounds scary though....
Yes, I feel that, too.
I think, but obviously don't know, that death itself is a state of 'nothingness', so to speak, so why should I be scared of nothing?
The number one fear in America is public speaking over death and after life
It makes you wonder why the super power of Global public opinion is so suppressed, as we are blinded by the other super power of the Military Complex and the rich man’s media.
I think it is the nothing that scares me. Rather any kind of something than nothing.
Were you ever under general anesthesia? When you awake you don't remember anything, not even a dream. That's how I think it is, except you never wake up.
Do we dream when under anesthesia? Wonder if anyone knows.
Terrified of it, but there's nothing to be done about it. I just have to let those moments in the middle of the night when the realisation of my mortality becomes overwhelming wash over me, and then try hard not to think about it.
I would have that terrifying thought, too; until I was in my late teens or early twenties. It was the fact that everyone has to die, including me. Absolutely no choice. The thought even caused panic sensations - NO, NO, NO, that can't possibly happen to me!
Well, now I know it's not really worth thinking or worrying about, because it will happen, anyway, no matter what.
1Co 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
I don't particularly fear death itself. It's more of the manner of it that bothers - I'm not too keen on the idea of a painful death - and the timing is another factor. I'd like to live my life as long as possible - or at least long enough that I could die satisfied.
Nope - actually lookin forward to gettin out of this hell they call life I live by my morals of don't cheat steal or lie , two wrongs don't make a right and - like the county song goes - you got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything stand up for yourself but don't hurt others - leaving this world dosn't scare me one bit
Most religious people believe in Hell and most believe most of Us will end up there. If I did believe in the concept of Hell and thought it was real, how could I not be very afraid?
Hey Starme, if there was a like *button*, I would have applied it to your post.
Yeah. Terrified of it in fact.
Life sucks a good deal of the time but I still enjoy it.
So while it's not a "crippling" fear it is still a fear I deal with every day. Just like the fear that Pauly Shore is planning on a return to the silver screen. Again, it's a fear that haunts me but doesn't keep me from living.
What do we feel when we are preparing to meet someone we love & we know that we have did something wrong towards him?
I think we fear!!
Not really. Death is a fact of life. As one gets older, life become shorter and shorter in spans. Yesterday, I was nineteen and now I am fifty-seven. Time flies in a microsecond. The next thing I know I will be old and near death.......oh, well!

What makes some people QUITE COMFORTABLE with the concept of death?
by David Livermore 6 years ago
Are you worried about what happens after you die?I have two fears for when I die: I'll basically cease to exist, have no consciousness, etc. Or, that there is an afterlife and I'll learn the meaning of life, which could be devastating if I handled life wrong!

Hi all, I just want to know what is your vision about life after death? And how you describe it about that life?.
by Zubair Ahmed 3 years ago
Do you believe in Life after death? And what happens to you after you are dead?We are all bound to die one day...is there anything beyond death. All religious people think there is DO YOU?

If so why or why not?

Believers, how do you KNOW there is life after death?I am always interested, and quite envious, about people who are completely convinced of an afterlife. People who believe in the afterlife, do you feel that you KNOW there is life after death and if so how can you be so sure?
