One of the biggest reasons we fear death, is that we fear ceasing to exist. We are afraid of nothingness.
You never cease to exist.
This may be difficult to understand when you are facing your own death or the death of a loved one.
Yes you may no longer be this version of you, however, in the words of Allan Watts, “You are the universe”.
Contemplate it. You do not need to agree with me. Just be open to the possibility of it.
Ask yourself, if this is true, is there anything to be afraid of?
Then go with the answer which fills your heart and empowers you.
