    It might sound a little weird but im serious.

    evertime i think about dying early and unexpectadly i get really freaked out. i feel like time is going so fast. most people have told me its because im a person that focuses way too much on the future and not the present.

    but is anyone else like this? im sure theres plenty of people. emphasize on the plenty.
    im just really scared that i wont be able to see everthing and live to watch things change and grow. and i wont grow up to experience the amazing things in life like getting married, having kids, going to my first MAJOR concert or just getting old and looking back on life and smiling.
    its insane :(

    I don't want to die, but I'm not scared of dying.


    However I did go mountain climbing a few years ago and briefly lost my footing, nearly falling nearly 500 feet onto the rocks and boulders below.

    While I admit I was scared shitless it wasn't the dying part, it was the landing which scared the hell out of me[​IMG]

    There's no real good reason to live unless you have family it would upset, and as much as I hate to say that, it's true. People talk about missing out on great experiences and stuff. Well, anything you miss won't matter after you're dead.

    watch Alejandro Jodorowsky's "The Holy Mountain". Consider the Ceremony of Death, near the end of the movie. It cured me forever from fearing death by itself.
     
  9. Death at a young age does not scare me. The prospect of living many years more without dignity does. This world can be a nightmare if you let it, and in the last few years I think I began to let it. Everything feels so confining. The idea of getting a career, settling down, to me that sounds worse than death. I already have college debts, a degree in writing and literature that is not helping me make an income (though it may one day <-- hope continues to shine from within!), and a horrible feeling like the world is closing in on me and wants to clip my wings before I've even spread them.

    That's accurate for me as well. And while I occasionally get panicky over what happens next, if I'm going to worry about anything death-related, it's usually over HOW I'm going to die. Namely that it's going to be drawn out and painful. But I also agree with Share the Warmth -- a drawn-out, painful life scares me just as much.

    i can relate you to very much... i think about death everyday and especially while driving, every once in while when im on the road driving i think what if that car just swerved over and hit me.. and then i was dead just like that? i myself think too much into the future. but that can also be a good thing

    I'm scared about what happens after you die! I can't believe that you just go and then that's it - it all goes black and you are no more!

    But then again I don't know if I believe in Heaven or reincarnation!!

    I used to be very scared of death, but not anymore. You don't want to think about it so much that it ruins your life, but I think it's good to think about death to some extent, so that you can begin to get used to the idea of it. Some Buddhist meditations are all about picturing your rotting corpse, just so that you can put your life in perspective and realize that everything is changing, nothing lasts forever, etc. I've lived such a full life already, I really couldn't complain even if I died now, so it doesn't bother me much anymore.

    if Jodorowsky didnt help you please consider Epicurus' quadripharmakon:
    it is pointless to fear death since when you exist death does not exist, and when death comes you are no longer here. pleasure is at hand for everybody, the gods are not a threat since they are far and dont care about us and pain is either bearable or deadly, and as we learned before death does not exist.

    Otherwise if you are a believer you may hope in some form of eternal life, all the major religions sport some flavor of this extra bonus.

    Fear of death is the perfect fear cause it's helpless, there is no way to escape, so either you can cope with that or you'll run mad. Most people do.

    I went through a phase where i thought about dying practically everyday, i think i was 15, it was crazy! It passed though, yeah we should all just live for the moment while we are here, you never know what could happen to you so just live!

    Two people i know who were killed this year and two years ago were my age. When they died it really gave me a eye opener. Now it seems like i think about death everyday, although i think about life just as much. Death is scary thats for sure, then again, what are we scared about? We dont know what is on the other side. With that being said i say everyone should smoke weed and be in harmony.

    It ain't being dead that bothers me as there are lots of things worse than death. Lots of times LIViNG sucks. Life can hand you lots of hard times. Like right now things are pretty bad. Like I am looking at the possibility of being homeless again. That is scary. I just lost my job. I have been "clinically dead". Dudes, I died in chlildbirth not quite 25 years ago. I hemmoraghed to death. I had so little blood left that it was a medical impossibility for me to live. But there I was back here again. The other side is beautiful and I wish I was back there lots of times. All is Warmth, Love and Acceptance over there. In the non-physcial realm LOVE is a force and is a physically felt thing. Like a Warm Gentle Breeze caressing and soothing you. I saw a being clothed in white in a white misty light. I argued with this being that I had to come back to raise the boy I had just birthed as he was a blue baby and he would not survive without me. In the arguement I called my mother-in-law a Bitch and said he would not survive in her care. Which was true on both counts. I wanted him to have the full life on this plane so I begged to come back. Next thing I know is I felt PAIN. I did not feel PAIN once I passed the point where I entered the dying phase. Once you are actually dying you feel euphoric. It is the greatest HIGH you will ever know. I understand though that those who check out early due to their own hands have a lot of work to do on the other side to deal with their issues and the people they hurt by opting out early. Don't worry about some God judging you. You get to see a video of your life and the mistakes you have made and the people you have hurt and you must decide how you are going to make things OK. YOU JUDGE YOU! Hell is only an option if YOU choose it. You can opt out anytime and choose the good place. You are only plagued by your own fears and hangups. So depending on the condition of your own soul is where you end up. But it is not permanent. Fear is your worst and only enemy. If you fear snakes you will see snakes and if you fear fire you will see a burning pit of fire or some such. If your soul is full of light and love I guess that means you will be in a place of light and love. You must face yourself once you die. So, I suggest meditation and other tools and books that can help you face yourself and your fears in the here and now and then what does it matter. You are the master of your own reality now and once you no longer inhabit flesh and blood.

    Peace and Love, Cricket
