    What is life beyond death?

    Quite recently I've been thinking a lot about death. It could be my age and the coming of my 25th birthday. But questions arise to what happens to us after death? Do we go to heaven or Olympus as whatever religion we practice tells us? But are there people out there who really experienced what happens and have come back to tell the tale? Death terrifies me, and the thought of it sends me into an anxiety induced panic attack. What is everyone's thoughts on this?

    In the Christian faith, death is not terminal; it is a transition. That transition moves up to a glorified state in heaven with God forever.

    Therefore, death is not something to be feared per se, but rather the movement from a temporary, perishable existence to an eternal, imperishable one.

    P.S. If you are 25 you need not think of death for a very, very long time.

      To me it doesn't seem like a long time. With all the video games I've played (like Mass Effect) and even our very own creatures and plants here on Earth, they all live much longer than us. It just puts it into perspective of how little time we have.

    Focus on what you can do with your life. How you can make an impact on the lives of others so that you remain in their memory. That is the only form of "life after death" that most will get.

    Focusing on the next life will make you forget about your current one.

    So when you start panicking, thinking about how you could die, focus on what you can do to feel like you are living. Go look at something beautiful, play a board game with someone you know. Go out drinking with friends.
