I was wondering why people fear death, is it because they're scared of what might come after or because they're scared of what might not come...The unknown is really scary for everyone! People scared of what might come after, because No one knows what actually happens after death, but the scientific answer is that our bodies dissolve back into the earth.
Alan Watts one of the most widely read philosophers of the 20th century in the short, inspirational video below speaks about the true meaning of death.
Watts believes that if we take an in-depth look into the nature of death and dying, we’ll change the way we see it. We’ll accept death for the natural life process that it is and overcome our fears and transcend our attachments.
In the natural world, we watch as the different cycles play themselves out in a constant movement between birth, life, giving birth to new life, and eventual death.
Death gives way to life and life gives way to death in the continual circle of life.
There are people on this planet that are more closely related to the earth than we have become latterly in the western world. Within these cultures, death is not something to be feared, it is accepted as a small part of the cycle of life.
Whatever your beliefs are about death and the afterlife, spend your time wisely whilst you are on this planet.
Do not waste your time fearing death, or what will happen to you after death - you will know soon enough when you get there. In the meantime, there is so much to enjoy here on earth whilst you are here - loved ones, Mother Nature, laughter, learning, playing, life.
We should all strive to appreciate what we have while we have it, but also strive to have that which we appreciate last for longer!
