"Death is the greatest secret in the world."
Fear of death is a common feeling for people.
Most of the people are afraid of death,which is a normal thing.
Some might say death is just a passing...in another world.
Some might say that death is the end.
Indeed death is the greatest secret ever.
I think that in the way that we make peace with ourselves is the way we look at death.
Or the way that death is looking to us.
Because by making peace with ourselves it is the measure of what we might feel in the exact moment of death.
Or better said how we accept this passing moment.
And that acceptance is given by what we leave behind us,I mean our facts.
Because our facts speaks for us...I mean..our facts speak with Death itself.
Of course would be unusual to not be afraid of death.
Because fear is common feeling.
Like death is common thing.
But not at a personal level.
So,in my humble opinion I guess we shouldn't be afraid of death.
Therefore the question is:
Are you afraid to die?

I have cystic fibrosis. When I was first diagnosed, the doctors told my parents that I may not live to celebrate my 10th birthday. As you can clearly see, I've beaten that statistic, but I'm still in a fight for my life, and it's a race against time.
In October i celebrate my 40th birthday. The odds that I won't get to celebrate my 40th birthday are 1 in 2....
I'm not afraid of death i cant wait for the next big adventure...
Now go and hug your family, tell them you love them, and be grateful that your life is so simple, because things could be a lot worse.peace,sugarcookie1 S&F
Oh sorry about that I guess I should reformulate the question but I don't know how.
When I read the thread title I thought "Now this is pretentious. This is rhetoric." You didn't name it "What happens after death?" You didn't even ask a general question.
You're directing your intellectual guns at others.
I am glad you did ,I am not very good with this kind of subjects.
Anyway, I could see it all before I even clicked on the thread.
