DO YOU FEAR DEATH? BY ABRAHAM GEORGE

Virtually every religion and society has embraced the notion that human beings continue to exist or will exist again after death. Many people doubt the existence of an after life altogether. What about you ?
Human life is very fragile. Experts have classified death anxiety into various categories. The fear of pain, the fear of the unknown, the fear of losing the loved ones and the fear of the negative consequence s of that one's death may have on survivors. Religious beliefs, not withstanding the idea that death is the absolute end of life scares many people. What is the condition of a human before coming to life. Where were you before you were conceived. You did not exist. It is that simple. In that sense, it is logical to conclude when we die our consciousness returning to exactly the same state it was before when we were alive.
Most people avoid discussing their own death. At the same time the death of a stranger may appear to be normal aspect of life, still when it comes to the death of a loved one or to our own death., there is nothing normal about it. Human have an inborn deep rooted desire to live. We want to keep living indefinitely. That may be one major difference between human and animals. Various religions have different teaching about life, death and life after death. What is your belief? Do you fear death?
