Befriending Death. Why We Fear Death. “Men dread demise as youngsters dread to go in obscurity.” – Bacon. There might be a thousand reasons why we dread passing, yet above all else we dread passing since we dread the obscure.
There might be a thousand reasons why we dread passing, yet above all we dread demise since we dread the obscure, and demise is an obscure element to a great many people. We dread that perishing might be difficult and we don’t have the foggiest idea what will befall us at the purpose of death.
A few people dread demise since they envision the withering procedure to be extremely agonizing. Passing isn’t difficult. Truth be told, passing is regularly serene and quiet notwithstanding for those experiencing malignant growths or other terminal sickness.
At the point when the physical body is disintegrating step by step from a terminal disease, and torment emerges from shallow injury, for example, bed wounds, or profound agony, for example, bone or nerve torment, demise may even be an appreciated help for the sufferer.
We have to recognize the agony of the physical body from the way toward kicking the bucket. The perishing procedure is an unmistakable procedure that is isolated from the weakening of the physical body. At the purpose of death, there is no torment.
What occurs at death is the discontinuance of the breath and all other physiological elements of the physical body. The heart quits siphoning and the blood course quits moving. The body quits creating warmth, and consequently continuously turns cold.
For the individuals who accept that we are something other than a physical body, and that we are in reality otherworldly creatures, the perishing procedure implies considerably more than simply physical passing.
Demise is only a characteristic procedure that enables us to dispose of the physical body as we move into the otherworldly domain.
Since our dread of death is because of the way that we don’t have a clue or get demise, it bodes well to acquaint ourselves with it. The more we get demise, the less we dread it. We ought to consequently develop a fellowship with death, and be absolutely acquainted with it, similarly as we know about our companions.
We can develop a fellowship with death in three straightforward advances:
1. Set up a connection with God.
2. Develop a propensity for acknowledgment, rather than fault.
3. Be a gift to other people.
Set up a connection with God.
By setting up a connection with God, we get in contact with our own otherworldliness. God can be whatever you see God to be. For Christians, Muslims and Hindus, that may mean a supreme God. For Buddhists, it might mean the Buddha seed inside. Skeptics may need to come to term with their own otherworldliness.
Setting up a connection with God implies re-picking up your otherworldliness. It drives you closer to the profound part of yourself. Regardless of whether we acknowledge it or not, we are something other than this physical body. When we kick the bucket, we abandon this physical body and just our otherworldliness progresses forward.
It is along these lines fundamental for us to be comfortable with our own otherworldliness. It is the main piece of us that proceeds after death. This ‘reality’ is as per every single significant religion.
Develop a Habit of Acceptance.
It is interesting how when beneficial things come to us, we promptly acknowledge them just as we merit them or we have buckled down for them, yet when catastrophes come upon us we rapidly search for an outer source to fault.
This is particularly so when mishaps, for example, terminal sickness happen to us. We may accuse God, and later accuse ourselves or individuals around us.
We ought to develop a propensity for lack of bias paying little respect to whether positive or negative things come our direction. Else, we can turn out to be angry about existence when negative things occurred. Searching for a person or thing to accuse just serve to draw out our very own anguish. Demise is an adversary when we oppose it, yet the minute we acknowledge it, it transforms into a partner.
Notwithstanding, developing a propensity for acknowledgment does not mean not successfully right or improve our conditions. It doesn’t mean, for instance, that when we are determined to have a terminal disease we don’t take care of business. It is just reasonable to look for treatment, on the off chance that it is accessible to us. Then again, it likewise implies we should know and acknowledge when therapeudic treatment is never again conceivable.
We dread demise just when we won’t confront it. Tragically, there are deceitful individuals who might exploit our dread of death to sell their ‘fix’. As far as I can tell with the in critical condition, I have gone over endless accounts of kicking the bucket individuals being tricked into separating with their reserve funds and properties in the desire for accomplishing a fix.
Be a Blessing to Others.
This is our most prominent and most solid partner at the hour of death. Realizing that we have been useful to other people and that we have attempted to carry on with an innocent life removes the dread of death. In the event that our life has been a legitimate one, free of any cognizant aim to hurt any living creatures, we don’t have anything to fear when demise draws near. Our mind will find a sense of contentment, undisturbed.
Then again, the individuals who have egotistical existences, and damage others to get little points of interest for themselves, end up detained in modest, dim cells when they move to the opposite side.
In this manner, while regardless we can , we should give our best to the world and to individuals around us. Loan some assistance to other people and help to ease their burden. Carry delight to the sad and solace to those needing solace. There are numerous who are less lucky than us. Remember our good fortune and be a gift to other people.
