    It's a subject people don't like to talk about, but does it scare you, do you thinks there's anything after?

    The state of death is less terrifying--for me--than the method by which I will one day achieve it. Talk about the suspense.

    After death? Good question. I'd say first hand experience was required before coming up with an answer, but I don't think I would be able to get back to you on that.

    As I get older, there are days when I wonder if I'll drop dead with my next step.
    Other days, I don't give a crap.

    I've been close enough to it to have my life "flash before me".
    I've had dreams of dying.

    But most times I'm too busy living to think about it.

    I'll leave it to others. It's not my thing.

    It will happen ... so

    May be death of this human body is just a new birth to a different and more beautiful sphere.


    Hope so :)

    I've never been afraid of dying...i am a little afraid of HOW i'm going to die! I'm not into pain!! :)
    But i know that when i die i don't have anything to worry about....no more pain, no more worries, and i'll be with my Lord for eternity. I know some of you don't believe this...but this is my faith. And it makes me feel good! :)

    That was beautiful skye!!!

    Having been very close I have never felt anything more loving or more beautiful. There was equanimity, enveloped in serenity and peace. While I do not fear death, I do not want to rush it I have too much of a great life right now and far too much to look forward to....:D

    Death is not life, and that's enough for me.
