    Do You fear that you would be dead one day?

      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.

      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 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!

      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?

      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....

          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.

            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.

              I don't think so - I think that's why anesthesia is considered dangerous.  It's a forced comatose.  I noticed when I had surgery and woke up, I felt like I was dreaming when I heard someone calling my name and telling me it was time to wake up.

      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.

        camloposted 12 years agoin reply to this

        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.

      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.

      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.
