Nice topic.

I don't fear death but I do fear the process of dying. I can't imagine anything more terrifying.

I don't fear nothingness - how silly would that be you won't know anything....

I do think there is something 'between' lives.

I do think you take your state of mind with you and am actively working on improving mine in order to face death without the natural fear and panic that will occur and hopefully not fight it so much.

Death isn't the problem, it's the helplessness of being out of control when death takes over - remember the brain will continue for minutes. I imagine the out-of-controlness, something akin to childbirth, will be the hard part.

But I don't know - and ain't that the problem.

How can you not fear death but fear the process of dying. Same difference, really.

Either you accept that reality as we know it is a sham & pray for the end, or you are addicted to reality as we know it & fear the end.

Those are the only two real options. Everything else is semantics.

I am not religious. I can say i do not fear death at all. Welcome it or want it? NO!!! Want to preserve my life and the earth and humanities future. YES!!!

It is a fight against capitalism though.

Corporate profits at all cost are killing the planet and it's people.


So true about the Corportacracy.

Not scared of death since I had a NDE 25 years ago. It's really comming home IF the time is right. But I'm scared of suffering and leaving my boy too soon.

Great reading there in many languages:

I think death is returning to our natural state.


A return to innocence?

I actually look forward to death, the chance that there may be something better at the end for us intrigues me. Obviously most of us will die a diseased slow death which won't be fun... but hey ho.

See you on the other side. Or not.

I am not afraid of death any more than I am afraid of being asleep. It is just the process between being alive and dead that is the scary part. Pain and sadness are the only things to worry about on the way to our resting place. I hope there is something beyond this life but I don't know. All I know is that things are not quite what they seem in our reality.
I am not religious.

Interesting question since they often accuse the religious of being scared of it all the time.

Why should I fear something that happens to all life? Being scared of it doesn't make it not happen. It's just a waste of energy.

what is the point in fearing nonexistence. perhaps instead of being afraid, you should be vigilant. prepare yourself so when it is time to go, you leave nothing undone or unsaid. fear gets nothing done.

I don't want to die, because I'm having a great time here. I don't want to leave the people and animals that I love. But I don't fear death. I was with my mother when she died. It's was a beautiful thing. It's really the same as a birth. We come here alone - we leave alone.

As a younger man (well 29 years young..), the thing that i fear when I think of death is leaving my loved ones in mourning. I enjoy my time on earth and would hate to suffer a painful or drawn out demise, but i feel quite comfortable with leaving and discovering the mysteries of crossing over.

I feel however that dieing at such a young age would be devastating for my family and fiancee and that is what scares me about death...
