Cheating Death - Continued

This post is a continuation of my last post on cheating death. Some of you wrote about the fear of death. To be frank, I don't fear death. it's the way I die that I am afraid of. Think about this. Isn't it be really good to die during your sleep, knowing nothing? Rather than dying in a death bed in a condition where you'll be pissing in your own pants. I guess, the first one is better. It's not just us who suffer. More than us, it's the people around us who suffer the most. Won't you agree? So, tell me, do you fear death or fear the way you die? Do you prefer to die early or live till 90 and to die a horrific death?.
Now, don't take this post as an inspiration to suicide. Life will behave well to you, if you behave well to life.

  4. Hey Aneesh!


    **Isn't it be really good to die during your sleep, knowing nothing?

    Thats exactly how my dad died. no noises, no one expected it, he didnt know it either, just gone in his sleep at just 44yrs of age.

    I know why his death was so peaceful...he was such a nice man. Im not saying this cos he's my dad. U'll know if u asked all his friends, the countless number of ppl he helped in his very short life, the countless number of hearts he touched with his frank n fearless nature...his funeral was attended by so many ppl we didnt hv enough space even in his very large family home! He LIVED life to the fullest. So Death gave him an easier way to go. Thats what I believe.



    **do you fear death or fear the way you die?

    Its the same thing isnt it? Cos the way of dying is DEATH after all. Cos after u die, u wudnt hv a clue abt it. The moment of death, the way we die, is what DEATH is to us. Thats the only time when we get to know n feel DEATH. Right?


    I dun fear it anymore like I used to. I've seen so many ppl dying...so many babies dying...so many young ppl dying...so many good ppl dying. So wut is Death but a part of Life. but I'd like to know wuts after that :)


    I just dun want to grow old...old age such a sad state of human life. I always told my mum that I want to die before Im old. I wanna die young. I dun wanna live til Im very old and suffer in a bed with no quality of life or no mobility. My uncle is going thru it now. When I see him I feel so sad.

    I'd be rather dead than live w.o. quality of life. No offense to anyone. This is just my personal opinion.


    Keshi.

  5. Spot on! It's really about the way we die...am scared of a painful death, a death which would disturb others! I prefer to die after I achieve my life's purpose, and I feel that my stay here has been worthwhile! :)

    ***Its the same thing isnt it?

    How can it be the same thing. One can get involved in an accident and be in bed for days, enduring all the pain and finally leaving to death's hands or can die on the spot.

    ***Thats the only time when we get to know n feel DEATH.

    I have to disagree with it. We can feel death in so many ways. Even we can have moments when we know that death's sniffing around.

    **but I'd like to know wuts after that :)

    I guess, there is nothing after that. That's the END. But, when we hear about reincarnation and all, we might think again. But, who knows how much truth is in it.

    ***. I dun wanna live til Im very old and suffer in a bed with no quality of life or no mobility.

    That's just what I've said. That's another way of dying, right? Thought the actual death happens only once, the light inside you, the hope, vanishes way before.. and that's the real death. What's the purpose in living like a vegetable, to be a burden for all. But, of course, we cannot decide these all, it's all our wish. How many of it will get fulfilled, no one knows...

  12. My life's purpose...adding a smile to as many faces as possible, fulfilling most of my dreams, at least the ones that can happen in this lifetime, rest for the next lifetime ;P, and being a clean soul, and not regret something in the future! :)
