Hello again to all my readers, old and new.
Sorry for my late posting, it's seems that times has become a thing of the past again for me, as I am now working again. Funny how time seems to disappear when we work. Then we look back and wonder what happened to it.
I really hope you are all doing well. As I am still doing great remaining healthy and happy.
This might be my last New post for a while, and after this one I will post some of my older stories to keep you entertained for a while longer. As my new job is very physical and fast, I really do not have a lot of energy left by the end of the week. But enough about that.
From time to time I get a chance to look around on some forum sites, and have still noticed there are still a lot of people afraid of death. This is not a topic a lot of people like to talk about in too much detail, but I believe the more you understand something, the less likely you will be afraid of it.
Now anyone can type in death on Google, and hundreds of things will come up trying to explain death and what it is. A lot of it is good information and good advice for those who are thinking about dying or afraid of death. So here is my attempt to help understand a little more.
From my experience from listening to people and personal, Most people are not actually afraid of death it self. But instead they fear what they will leave behind. For example: family, friends, material things, pets and so on.
So now you need to ask yourself what are you really afraid of?
I believe for most people it is the fear of the unknown. As many people have their theories of what happens after we die, and have even written about there near death experiences. For most of us we are still uncertain what death really means or is. Of course we are not meant to know, because it is something we must experience in the end. But I will make this clear,
"death is always smiling upon us, so all one can do is smile right back."
Now if all of you can actually get the phrase into your minds, and understand it's meaning. You will find your life will drastically improve within yourselves. Becasue as most people realize, the inner self is actuall far more important than the exterior self. Just like the old saying goes, " It's not what the outside appears to be, But it's the inside that counts." I mean lets face it, with out our inner self, there is no exterior.
Once people have fully understood this, there is absolutly nothing any one can say or do, that will get to your inner beauty. This is exactly how my inner self feels. And because my inner self feels some what invincible, it reflects on my exterior self. I am not saying I walk around smiling all the time on the out side. But rather I am always smiling on the inside. And of course this is what count's the most.
It's the main reason I am hardly ever sick, and harldy ever sad or depressed. Even when things hit rock bottom. And it's all due to remembering the phrase above.
This is why it is important at a young age to always have this phrase in mind. Because as we know while we are young, we are far more emotional, and let too many things get to us, sometime's even beyond our control. There's always presure to do well in school, our friends, our family and so on. Basically everything is attempting to put preasure upon us. Which then of course, too much preasure can get to the mind, and then it's too late, and rational thoughts all dissapear. Thus, then we do something silly.
It's never a good thing to reach this point, I know, I have been there once myself when I was younger. And really had no one that could understand or even explain to me how to get out of that train of thought. So now I will explain why I never left this place.
Now because I already had the phrase "death is always smiling upon us, so all one can do is smile right back" in my mind. It litterally saved my life. I was never afraid of what I was leaving behind, as I did not care about material things, or have any attachments to people. So thats's not what saved me. What saved me was that the people that I did leave behind, how they were going to feel with me gone. And because I felt that sadness of other's, simply because I had that phrase in my mind. It then made me realize, it's not always about me and the suffering I feel. But rather It would cause suffering and sadness to others inside's that mattered the most.
What most people forget to realize, no matter how long it take's, we always eventually get over our own problems. Even experiencing the death of someone close. It just depends on the indavidual, and what you have in your mind and heart before doing anything silly. Now I used heart for a reason, because what I have learned is that once the mind becomes to depressed, the heart is the one that hurts the most. And if the heart experiences to much of this sadness. The heart is the one telling the mind to give up, and sometimes can even shut down on it's own. This is why I say the innerself is far more important than the exterior self.
Now here's a little something to ponder about if you are still fearful of death. Even if someone says they know what happens, they still don't, even if they have experienced a glimpse of death, they still don't know. From what I have learned it is different for every person. Everyone will experince death differently. Even if you have experienced a glimpse of death, it will happen differenlty the next time round. I believe it all comes down to what the indavidual believe's before it happens. So really it is meant to be a surprise, and something we all must experience, rather being told what will happen.
Death is always something that will be right there on your doorstep, sometime's you will know it's coming, and other times you will know nothing. It's like the old saying, "when your number is up, it's up."
And that is the truth of the matter. So really there is no need to fear something that is inevidable, somthing no one can stop. Once most people have understood this, then it will no longer enter the mind, thus removing the fear of it.
No one really want's to die. Some see it as an easy way out, away from the presure. But facing the presure head on, it what makes us stronger as humans. Even if there was something that could keep us alive for eternity, Would you really want too? Personally, me I would if I could, but then I believe it might be selfish, as I would not be making way for something new, and quite possibly never evolve. So that is something the think about as well?
Just try not to think about it too much though, remember thinking too much can be dangerous.
So for now, I will say see'ya, and I will attempt to write something new in a couple of months, so for the meantime I hope you enjoy some of my older posts.

Your support has kept me continuing with it.
