Do you fear death?If so,do you fear it because of the pain that is likely to go along with it?Or because of what will become of your soul(your self)after death?
Curiosly,I find that I no longer fear death.Not that I want to die-I don't.But I wonder if this how I should feel.
I don't like pain,but I have a fairly high threshold of pain,I think.I'm sure there is much greater pain than what I have experienced,but though I avoid it when at all possible(including spankings...sorry chat babes),I'm not afraid that I can't deal with it if I have to.
Likewise death,I just have no great fear of it anymore.I don't think that it's due to my beliefs about what will happen after I die...I don't have any.Sure,I was raised a J.W.,instilled from birth with the idea that if I didn't survive Armageddon,that I'd be resurrected thereafter.But I don't buy that anymore...neccesarily.Nor do I believe in the heaven or hell concept...neccesarily.I do believe that if I'm the best kind of person I can be,then it will have to be good enough for whatever,if anything,lies beyond the life I'm living now.
In talking to others,though,I find very few(if any)people who don't have a pretty high degree of fear about death.It has me wondering,and I'd appreciate your comments.
We ride and never worry about the fall
I guess that's just the cowboy in us all
