Life after Death
Advantages: No more worrying about money!
Disadvantages: Possibility of a fiery hell for godless heathens like myself. Least it will be warm.
My views on life after death are quite simple really. Many people fear that being dead means becoming nothing. I believe that everything comes from nothing. Therefore life and death to me is an ongoing circle.
If you look around us, over everything else, one thing stands out to me. That's balance. When there is night, there will be day, when there is summer there will be winter, where there are men, there are females. All of that is based on cycles and it is natural, you don't have to be a scientist to work that out. If seeing is believing then we see natures rule every single day.
As that's my belief, then naturally i believe that you will live again...and again...and again. You just don't have any knowledge of it.
I believe people don't fear death as much as the actual act of dying. Will it be painful? When might that happen? What will happen to me afterward?
I don't fear death, or dying. I did for a long long time. Especially after losing my brother when he was 24 years old. It brought it home to me that you don't actually have to be old to die. I was 18 at the time. I went through about 2 years of acute anxiety, death anxiety you could say.
To tackle it, I decided, like any other phobia, that I had to face it head on. I couldnt obviously do a 'flat liner' so instead I made myself really think about what death meant. Over and over again. Sometimes I would end up completely petrified, other times I would be more laid back. In time I began to stop fearing the thought quite as much, and began to think more logically about it. Now its not exactly a happy thought, but it certainly doesn't distress me as much as it once did.
Every person needs to find their own peace with death. There is no getting away from it, and no point spending a life time worried about what comes after. Think about it, then forget it.
Summary: Form your own opinion and make your peace.
