Where did Death come from?
We opted to enter into temporal, fragile forms for some reason. I can't fully explain why. I refuse to use someone else's words or philosophy to do that. But we came here to live inside those forms to experience this state of being and learn from it etc.
Those forms, being fragile and open to dissolution, decay, illness, and eventual passing away, are pretty tough to live in sometimes. But there is definitely a beauty in this Earth and the life here. I have learned a terrific amount from being here. If you were to see my life laid out to look at, you would see how I have changed.
The trouble is, the only way out is through some kind of dissipation and eventual death of that form, which can hurt.
I have heard it said (somehere) that Souls are very brave to come here. But that it is great learning.
