Who is afraid of his death, his life is already gone…
Fear only Allah
I came across a YouTube (never say die) of the longest living people of the world, they live in Bama Yao County (China/Vietnam border).
In Bama are living quite a lot of elderly over 100 years old, the oldest is 126Years old.
The grandson of the 126 years old lady said she has lived so long because of her hardships in life.
The custody is that the oldest of the family has his/her coffin in her home and if a younger member dies, he/she gets that coffin. And the oldest has to buy again a coffin,…
If we have our coffin ready at our home, then the fear of death is gone.
Even more, we live more in the here and now,…
One should not fear death rather more that one has never begun to live. (Marcus Aurelius)
I have faced quite a lot the death, even I tried so hard to live a normal life, and I failed again and again…
I remember 4 years ago when I came out of the hospital, my entire body was paralyzed, no chance anymore… And God healed me. My friend Oskar, who had awful challenges in his life (faced many time the death) called me when I was waiting for the bus home. I told him briefly what happened and he said “again”? I had teased Oskar with his tragedies and forgot that I am not better, faced 4 times the death in the last 14 years, 1-time clinical death…
After such challenges, I felt born again and to appreciate my time as a gift from God…
Imagine every day is the same, no challenges… Do you think that such life can give you the will to over-live tragedies or to live long?
It is rather more that we have forgotten to live and we are afraid of the death…. Because of our anxiety, we didn’t take that challenge…
The fear of death is one of our primer fears that we encounter in difficult situations.
Our animal mind wants to protect us and interpret every threat as a life-threatening.
How to reduce the fear of death?
All spiritual schools have created techniques to overcome our fear of death or our body identification. Because our real being/soul is beyond our body, feelings, and thoughts.
When we imagine our death in advanced and feel that, we reduce drastically our fear…
1.) For 10 min. Relax, feel your body and breath deep in and out for 5 minutes.
2.) For 20min. Imagine for instance:
A.) your funeral that you are lying in a coffin;
B.) that they burn your body;
C.) lying on your deathbed and surrounded by your family;
D.) killed in a car accident;
E.) killed in a war.
Imagine every detail and feel that, so that you cry…
3.) For 10 min. Sit in meditation and relax, breath deep for 5 min.
4.) For 10 min. Dance and celebrate your new birth.
