If you are suggesting that if someone doesn't want to get up and sing in front of everyone during karaoke, or if someone doesn't want to experience kingda ka, that they aren't living, then I think you're kind of stretching it and I call BULLSH-T.
When you fear death, you look both ways before you cross the street. POSITIVE.
When you fear death, you wash your hands before you eat and you cook your food. POSITIVE.
When you fear death, you just do things to prevent illness and imminent death from happening.
IT'S ALL POSITIVE.
Can you give me an example... that isn't BS, and that doesn't have to do with a traumatized individual, of which fearing death becomes negative? I'd like to hear it. I guess one could say that when you wash your hands, you are in fact preventing fear, and shedding and erasing fear... but without the fear present to begin with people would be doing all kinds of crazy sh-t and idk if humanity would have made it this far. Maybe I'm being too literal about this.
redmpsh: yeah. It was a joke. I'm old, and suffer from disease common to old men.
I will quite possibly experience a very painful death regardless of my personal emotional hang-ups.
I accept that truth; after all, there are things worse than either pain and death.

Yes karma will occur for everyone regardless of their religion. Murderers will face much pain in an underworld until their karma debt is spent. The greedy much temptation but will never be able to feel, taste or touch. The good among us will live in a higher world but will eventually fall back to a lower world. Only on this plane have we a chance of escaping rebirth.
