Deep Insights on Death

on

Death has been with humanity since the dawn of time and yet when it strikes, it brings with it a shocking reality check as though it was happening for the first time. We all know death is inevitable to all living and yet live as though it was distant and something that happens to others. The moment you are born, death is the one thing that is certain and definite to happen and this knowledge should influence how we live and the values we adopt in life. To live positively, learn to accept death.

Here are certain deep insights on death :

  • Natural – Death is a natural part of life’s cycle of development.
  • Wholeness – The paradox is that death makes life whole.
  • Surrender & Acceptance – Surrender to nature, and accept that you just won’t get around to some things.
  • Just Visiting – You are just a visitor on Earth.
  • Length – A certain amount of life has already passed, and you don’t know how much longer you will get.
  • Depth – Due to the unknown length, your vest bet is to live deeply and fully.
  • Purpose – Living deeply and fully could simply be called living purposefully.
  • Know Thyself – Have awareness of your essence and know yourself.
  • Art of Living – Awaken the art of living to understand the art of dying (and vice versa).
  • Today – A single day is a fractal version of a full lifetime.
  • Unbusyness – Busyness is one of the biggest distractions from living.
  • Presence – Life only ever exists in the present moment.
  • Final Revelations – Know that some things won’t be revealed until the verge of death.
  • Beyond Death – Contemplate what may happen after death.
  • Overcoming Fear – It is possible to truly overcome the fear of death while you are alive.

Hope it brings you some peace.

    More often than not, many of us try to prolong our lives because of the fear of death — as opposed to accepting how inevitable it really is. I think sometimes we fail to realise that death has been a part of life since the dawn of time. All living beings and things will pass on so new generations can live on.

    I don’t think anyone really wants to die. At the same time, I don’t think anyone wants to live forever, either. I’m not sure what we want, but I know it’s not death or immortality. To cope, we just find a way to make ourselves more okay with the concept of passing away.

    There is slight comfort in knowing that after you die, you’ll always hold a special place in the heart of those who loved you. Frankly, that doesn’t make death any less scary, because it is still unknown.
    No one knows what happens when you get to the other side. Once you’re gone, you can’t come back. You never get the chance to tell the living all about your experience with death. You don’t get a do-over either.

    Instead of fearing death, we must accept it. Whether we like it or not it will happen. Death is the only that is promised in life.
    Don’t allow the fear of death keep you from living your life before it’s even begun. To live is to go about life as though any day could be your last and that all you have is the present. Every day that your alive should be a celebration of life because you conquered death that day.

    If happiness always depends on something expected in the future, we are chasing a desire that ever eludes our grasp, until the future, and ourselves, vanish into the abyss of death.”

    You should be asking what’s the meaning of life. Problems that remain persistently insoluble should always be suspected as questions asked in the wrong way.

    Death is a daily occurrence, we are just blind to it most the time. We notice only what we think noteworthy, and therefore our visions highly selective.

    Welcome all change. We have frustration because we are fighting the changing of things. Death might be how we wake up from the dream called life. This whole world is a phantasmagoria, an amazing illusion.

    Your destination in life is death. To travel is to be alive, but to get somewhere is to be dead, for as our own proverb says, To travel well is better than to arrive.

    Life is meant to be experienced. Life is not a problem to be solved, but an experience to be had.

      It is not abnormal not to be scared of death. However, the majority are actually afraid or scared of death. There is a fear of suffering pain when we die, but the actual fear is because of us losing what we have – all our memories and relations. … death Is not sad, the sad thing is most people don’t live at all.

        To hold your breath is to lose your breath. I guess it is just because we are not in control of death or have any knowledge of what it is like. The first rule of thermodynamics is that energy can’t be created or destroyed, only transferred. Who knows what It is going to be like
