At the age of 15, I had a period when I realized that death is a natural end, which sooner or later comes to everyone. But at first I couldn't accept it. I read a lot of posts and articles on this topic, read about life after death, how other people went through this period. But soon I had a nervous breakdown – I cried for several hours, realizing the hopelessness of the situation. My mother helped me calm down – she comforted me, told me not to think about it, because it only depresses me more. After a short time, I began to realize the whole situation. There is a very good aphorism: “One should not be afraid of death, but of an empty life.” And this phrase helped me a lot. I realized that the fear of death comes to people when they live a bad life, when they suffer from the fact that they did not do something, did not achieve something, lost someone. But if you have a happy life, you won't be bothered by it. The fear of death is a biologically inherent factor in us, and we can't get rid of it. Live in a way that you don't have anything to regret.
How to stop being afraid of time-to live on a par with it. Time in childhood is long because it is new every day. And a lot of. So now you can do it so that every day there is something completely new and interesting. And most importantly, do something with your hands. Then life will be right here at your fingertips.
Time is demonized by culture. If you look closely, all ideas about time are imposed by culture and religion from the point of view of guilt.
And what wine does cornflower or chamomile have? The seed sprang up, if you were lucky, the sprout grew to a flower, and if you were lucky, the flower gave seed.
So it is with time. Humans are a self-replicating biological system, like a flower or a blue whale. For many years, this system has lived without a calendar or a sense of guilt. So it is worth returning to this state.
I grow, I bloom, I bear fruit, I shelter my descendants. It turned out with creativity – happiness.
Afraid of old age? Why? Because in our conditions it is poverty?
But in my old age, it will definitely not be me. It is in my changed body that another person will live with memories of me.
So why should I be afraid of myself and what's happening to me?
We are very lucky and the new old age is well over 75. There will be something different not only with us, but also with the world around me. Isn't that interesting?
I wrote about death in another question.
But in short, to accept it, you need to experience it in others. Get yourself some mice or hamsters. Relive their death and your feelings about death and live in peace. He will know what death is and not be afraid anymore.
For some reason, I am reassured by the fact that what happened to us before we were born? Nothing. And it didn't bother us,so why worry about what will happen after us? “So where I am, there is no death, where there is death, I am not.”
Well, first of all, it's great that the admin inserted one of my favorite songs. And secondly, it will pass, oddly enough. All people have this fear at different ages. I had it, attention, in 8 years. We were with my family in Italy, and there I saw a handmade clock, and every hour instead of a cuckoo, death came out, and on the clock there was an inscription “Time goes by”. Then I started raving wildly and trying not to waste my time. Then it passed, Buddhists don't really have time at all, they don't notice age, everything is eternal for them, and I support this. Just accept that you will never be able to keep up with the times, enjoy your life, because you are beautiful in your uniqueness. You are a miracle, and so is your life. Don't waste your time on fear, spend it on living.
I stopped being afraid of the inevitability of death at the age of 25. What's scary about dying? What I can't figure out is what it is. But I can't answer that question with my life. That is, where and how all this is all around and I along with it.�
Accordingly, I experienced the feeling that until I had dealt with life, then death is not worth talking about at all. I go and get freaked out with life. It's a strange thing, if you think about it.
