I have had friends die , some in not so pleasant ways ( one got hacked to death , one got his head run over whilst biking to work).
I have lost family members through illness and old age, ( my father in law had the biggest last laugh , he explained to his wife all the mistakes
he'd made over the years, apologised for all the money he'd wasted, she went to get him a new set of jammies, got back and found him dead - it's
almost like he knew he was about to die, he told her all his little white lies , and then kicked the bucket to avoid facing repercussions), I have
given it a lot of thought over the years and come to the conclusion that there is nothing you can do to avoid it, we all fear dying, its a part of
life that we all must take, from the richest to the poorest , from the healthiest fitness freak to the largest couch potato, from the powerful emperor
to the lowliest slave.
HOW we go is what frightens us the most, fire, drowning, violence are the ones we fear most, the one we WANT most is to die peacefully in our sleep so
that we don't notice.
I have no fear on how , when or why I die, I look forward to it , I will welcome it , I practice ( successfully a couple of times ) Astral Projection
and that alone taught me that death is natural, sure the body expires but the soul /consciousness/self doesn't, it endures, it goes on.
Ok you'll get people say when you die thats it, theres nothing, but I say its upto you to find your own answers, to find out what will comfort you
when your time comes.
The ones that say " There is nothing " I say to them " How do you know? Have you been there?" , they are the fearful ones and they are the ones I
try to say " You can't run from death , treat it like an adventure, one great adventure that you must take, that everyone takes, maybe then you
wouldn't fear it so much?".
I will welcome death when it comes , maybe even drowning who knows ( more likely motorcycle accident the way drivers are these days) , the pain would
only last a couple of minutes at most then there is only peace, you'll never have to worry about leaving your loved ones behind ( which in my opinion
is the BIGGEST copout to not face upto the fact that we are all doomed to die) , as they have to live on after you, you won't be able to change their
situations will you?
Death is as welcome as stepping through another doorway, waking to greet another morning , it is another journey that has to be taken no matter how
much space I try to put between me and it.
