Death. Strange happening.
    #335527 - 06/05/01 09:57 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Today, I saw a dead gosseling in my yard. I don't live too near to a river, so someone had to have brought it up and put it in my yard. For some reason, It made me cry. How can we live with so much death all around us, but know so little about it? Why would someone find satisfaction from taking a dead animal and putting it in my yard? The state I'm in has not been made better by the fact that I watched the movie brazil the other day, and I'm still thinking about it. I would just like someone to tell me that I'm not the only one who thinks about death alot. I'm young, and I know I shouldn't be thinking about such things, but I can't help it. I feel like getting really drunk right now.

Being drunk isn't going to solve anything. The only way I can deal with death is to not think about it. If you concentrate on thef act that we're all GOING to die someday, one way or another, you'll drive yourself absolutely insane. Trust me, I know how it is. I'm a borderline hypochondriac.. it sucks. Just don't think about it. Now is not the time in your life when you should be focusing on things that are so far away for you. Live in the now, not the future, not the past. Live for everything around you right now. And if someone you love leaves you, remember, that one way or another, they are going to a better place. Don't worry man. Be happy. This is a line used alot, but ; things could be worse.

Or, you could choose to not think of death as a bad thing. In our Western society, we are conditioned to believe that once one is dead they will never return, that they will likely end up in a 'hell' of some sorts.
What if death is merely a passing phase into a more enlightened existence? What if everyone goes to the happy hunting ground as soon as they die? What if that being is reincarnated on the next level of spiritual existence, to continue its journey to perfection?
There are just too many possibilities...
Though it is sad that someone would find pleasure in doing something pointless like that, YOUR reality is really what you choose it to be. If you want to think of death as an inherently bad thing, it is your choice. If you want to think of death as the ultimate experience, a beautiful passing ritual, or the end of a meaningless existence, it is all up to you.
I would recommend, however, not blocking out an issue just because it is unpleasant to think about. Explore everything and find its meaning, its inherent beauty.

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

Wow, getting drunk that'a going to solve alot <sarcasm>
But sometimes you HAVE to dwell on death, although it's not too productive, you're gonna have to face it eventually, but what you have to realize is that you shouldn't sweat what you can't control, and you just gotta Carpe Deim(spl?)
otherwise, you'l realize one day that you've wasted your lie and that's a much worse feeling than dying.
Does any of that really make any sense?

Only when you know death you can know life. Stop running away from death, simply realize it is inevitable and forget all about it. Why fear something that is inevitable? Why worry? Live and be happy...

Death is what happens to other people.
Seriously, it never happens to you. You may experience dying. But death, no. You won't be around to grieve your own death. Accept the end.
So why worry about it. Live every day like it was any other.

Both of my parents died about two years ago when I was 14, and it was by far the most traumatic experience of my life. It is definetly the hugest fear a child can have fulfilled. my mother died first, and I fell into a deep depression for a few months. My Dad died and my brother and I were left alone. Only then did it strike me. I had the most terrible idea of death for no reason whatsoever. Everything dies, it is the nature of things. It is only my grasping to something I wished was unchanging, life, that made it sad. My parents death made me realize the idea of impermanence. One moment to the next absolutely nothing is the same. Even what we think of as solids are constantly rearranging, and the molecular state of your brain is different now than what it was when you first started reasing this sentence. My Dad had told me, a while before he died, the only constant in this world is change, so embrace it. Something I did, which greatly changed my view on death and life, was to attempt to live it. I sat in my room quietly and envisioned myself at about 75 yrs old laying on my deathbed. I attempted to imagine every aspect of my environment, the feeling of my skin against the sheets, my heavy eyelids, until I was finally in that body. i then talked to myself as the teenager I am now, and gave myself suggestions on living. You should try it, anyone who reads this. After that I tried to imagine what it felt like to die. I knew that it was much like experiences I have had on hallucinogens while losing my body. I felt, and this is only my opinion, that life is a chance for existence (some call it God) to forget itself and play a little game. I am in a transitory phase right now, where I think I am not the same as the rest of existence, because I look out from my eyes, but my eyes are the eyes of existence. Do that exercise, it will help you out. I told myself not to live a life of regret, that would be the worst possible thing. Stay true to yourself, and eventually you will see there is no self to be true to.

I come from brilliance and I return to brilliance. What is this?

That's not true, man. I'm always surprised when other people tell me it's similar to a revelation or that they find it bizzare when they think "oh my god I'm going to die one day." To me, I feel like I have this thought in the background every minute.

What is it that people fear about death? Do you fear the loss of your material posessions, because apart from that I cannot see what will be lost. If there is life after death, then you will be reunited with the people you care for, and if not, you will not know anything about it anyway.

In a way, I am looking forward to death (don't get me wrong though, I plan to stay alive as long as possible). Through my beliefs I think I have an idea of what happens after death, but the only way that I will know whether I am correct will be to experience death myself. I see death as the only true validation of my beliefs, and when it comes I'm sure it will be a great adventure.

I don't fear death, I just wonder why we know so little about it.
