I don't fear death at all. I know for a fact it is not the end. Hard thing to prove, but when more people accept it and it becomes very mainstream to
be open about it, people will be more at ease with just being. I suspect that if we were ever to be able to teach our children en masse that when your
body dies, your consciousness lives on, that it would be a lot harder to control people and make them do meaningless crap for piss wage an hour while
making somebody else rich and powerful, harder to make them fight a war which really doesn't seem relevent if there's nothing to win or lose.... I
wish I could say "rest assured" to you, but there's two things that prevents me from just acting like it's no big deal:
1) losing close friends is kind of a bummer either way, mortal or immortal.
2) nobody except you will ever be able to teach you how to be comfortable with death.
Too bad there's so many things locking our minds into vices. I think we're just so bombarded with STUFF, now now now hurry hurry hurry bill bill
bill notice warning danger war famine death aids the #ing economy vote the puppet on the right or the puppet on the left (RIP Bill Hicks) yada yada
yada.... I have no doubt that some very evil forces who believe they are gods are managing the menagerie from hell... and it's great to hear it when
people can just let go and die peacefully, instead of buying into all the atheist materialist bull# and spending their final days waiting in physical
and emotional agony and being paralyzed with fear as they slip away. I can imagine that is the worst way to go... in fear.
So, I'm pretty sure your friend went somewhere very peaceful. I believe that
how you feel about death most definitely affects the outcome of your afterlife... because if you fear death so much, what have you REALLY learned in
life? I thik also that if your too arrogantly confident that "I'm going to heaven and will have 27 virgins and look like Krishna and hang out with
Jesus and the Muses, and we'll be best friends because I am the one and only God amongst men." then you might be not so pleasantly surprised where
you end up, either... because you haven't learned anything, either... or you listened to too many other influences.
Death is just a transition. The best possible thing to do is never worry about it. Live life like you're making your own epic screenplay, and don't
compromise your vision with fear. This is what we all have to learn. We can't live in slavery to unimportant bull# for the benefit of a couple of fat
cat scumbags on top our whole existence as a race. We've got break our minds free. It doesn't take evolution or a whole lotta time when all the
knowledge you need is within you already and you just need to be allowed to remember it.
I say every one of us on this site become public speakers and just tell people the truth as we see it. It doesn't have to be perfect, but I believe
we all have a piece of the puzzle and we just gotta throw it out there.
I'm happy to hear your friend was at peace, but sad to hear he had to go. Best wishes.
