Maybe when we are younger we cling to life; but as we get older we realize death is a friendly passageway to peace and comfort. At least, if we have done our spiritual development work. I know other people my age who are afraid of dying, people who I don't see to be so spiritually in tune and are very much entangled in all the temporary pleasures of this physical world like fancy possessions, body, food and drink, sex, etc.

But then again, maybe when my time comes, I'll be digging my claws into my own deathbed going "Uh-uh, I wanna stay here!"

I just hope my Dad comes to me as an usher for my journey home!


I think we all grow older,we accept that physical death may not be far away.
I've lived my life as best as I can,just getting a little wearier of all the problems in that life. I just can't wait!...

Death: There is nothing to be scared of. It's merely a transition from one state of being to another. As natural to the spirit as the changing of the seasons.

The thing is to make the most of the time that we have here i.e. learning, growing (in wisdom and love), Service ...

Life is a blessing. To be spiritually awakened is a double blessing. So seize the moment ...

I too am looking forward to it. The veil of forgetting on earth in human form can cause people to become fearful. I think for some people religion has caused fear of death.

The way I see it is that THIS is the hard thing......doing a human incarnation. I am looking forward to going back to my regular life. Apparantly it is not time quite yet. But I DO look forward to it. Although I do not want to leave by means of a long illness. Faster the better for me. Preferably just leave in my sleep. I do look forward to it, indeed. Been kicking around in this human form and incarnation for a lot of decades.

I'm one of the few ones (maybe the only one) who can remember what the terms were to be born as human being before he was born from his biological (earthly) mother. The first and most important rule you had to agree to before you were born was that after you die you wil let 'the Lord and Master (= probably God)' blow his trumpet and blow your 'house' (your astral projection in the afterlife) away, only your deeds will remain and will be written in the annals of human history. I believe there is probably no heaven nor a hell, you simply will get blown away and vanish.

Interesting to read....do you believe in an afterlife?
We lose the physical body and exist as spirit until we reincarnate once again.
