From the day you were born, is when you begin to die. Life, on that level, would mean we’re actually living to someday… Die. Perhaps, sooner than others. But, what is it that we fear the most about death?. Is it the thought of pain, agony and suffering when we think of ‘death’? Or is it simply the fact that we don’t completely “know” exactly what will happen after death? A solution to most of these answers may lie in Religion for some. While others may feel that science can solve most of these questions. Either way, no one really “Knows” what happens after death. We can only assume.
Here are some questions I asked myself a while back. I came up with some answers. Maybe not ‘accurate’ ones but, I still managed to come up with something. So now, I figured you might have some of these same questions to ask.
Should We Be Afraid of Dying?.
The short answer of that question is ‘No’. The extended version of that question depends on what YOU believe. If you believe that one day you’ll pass away and go to heaven to worship ‘God’ for all eternity while being happy at his feet, then there is NO NEED to be worried, let alone ‘afraid’. For the ones who don’t believe such nonsense, you may have an excuse to be afraid because you don’t really “know” what happens after death. Ultimately, you shouldn’t be afraid at all. Death happens to the best of us… In fact- Everyone. It’s an experience we go through at the end of our life. I don’t know exactly what happens after death or how it feels (obviously, since I’m here writing this). What I do know is that I should live my life as much as I can, while it lasts. When you die, you wont feel a thing (unless you’re wounded real bad). Just be glad you lived your life to the fullest & never fear death- You should be fine.
So… What’s the Point of Living?.
The point or ‘purpose’ of living is what you define it as. If your purpose is to live, eat hot dogs and become famous for some odd reason, then THAT will be your purpose. On a higher spiritual level, the purpose to live and experience your life is to grow in consciousness. To gain experience for your soul and inner energy to someday, be compatible with the higher source- Consciousness as a whole (The theory that we are ALL connected in some way in the multiverse).
The purpose of living, I believe, is to live for love (not god). To eventually grow with someone you truly love and die with someone you truly love. What’s your purpose?
Why Can’t We Live Forever?
Well… if we did, our earth will be WAY over crowded and populated. But, I believe one day, we will. When mankind is ready for it- it will happen. We’ll come up with something to keep us going forever. Until then, we just need to live life to the fullest and pass away peacefully.
My Question to You:
Are you truly afraid of dying (or death)? WHY are you afraid, and what exactly are you afraid of? What do you feel your purpose is in life?. Is it God you live for, or is it War? Let me know in a message or comment.
Thanks for reading and take care. Thank you.
