Death is not the end. It marks the next stage in the cycle of cosmic evolution. The reason the humans fear death is because of its finality. That finality is an illusion. Death seems final because it marks the end of our individuality, which was an illusion to begin with. To me, there is nothing more fulfilling than knowing that my atoms, the same ones were forged in celestial nuclear furnaces, will shift and change form into something else, something new. We are not individuals. We are all interconnected, and we are smaller parts of the whole. Death isn't the end, it is merely change.
That is why it utterly disgusts me that people lock up hollow and empty husks into coffins, and ashes in urns. People attach to much value to empty husks instead of the bonds and memories they forged with these people. It also disgusts me that people stick to the illusion of heaven and hell out of fear. Because it offers salvation from the supposed finality of death, because it offers a way to continue the illusion of individuality. Most people stick to the hope of heaven for all the wrong reasons.
You may disagree with my philosophy, but this is the philosophy I've adopted and I have no fear of death. A few weeks back I nearly got jumped in front of my house and I was more interested at the model of the glock pointed at me than the fact that I could die.
