Even though many people are afraid of death, the topic seems to be a taboo. The death is not being discussed as any other part of the human condition.
But death is an important subject.We may have become too busy to reflect on it or to register it, but we all know that death is a coming. And it comes to haunt us every now and then: when we feel meaninglessness or fail to find purpose to our lives.
But instead of contemplating on the subject, we avoid it by keeping ourselves busy. Mostly, it’s because we fear death.
Science, engineering, and technology have brought marvels. They have made life easier and graspable. But, most importantly, they have artificially sped up our lives and our experiences.
In doing so, they have unleashed so many possibilities and experiences, and now they are trying their best to aid us experience them within our lives.
It’s a reflection of our deep-seated fear of death, and the unknown that lies further of our death, and of our inability to experience how life will unfold when we are dead.
We have so many possibilities before us, and we are living through such dramatic progress and visions of a radically different future that we fear death, more than our ancestors.
In previous civilizations, people were at peace with death, as a stage in our journey through life.
Renaissance tore that peace, rationalized the concept of human self and spirit and sent us into the atomic understanding of the human condition.
We have never really come out of that cage of rationalism. Not yet. We’re in denial.
And it’s killing our experience of life and the possibilities of being in touch with our intuition and wisdom, as we continue to grow, learn and evolve.
Why You Should Not Fear Death
Epicurus, a Greek philosopher offered an argument about why we should not fear death. He argued that Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it does come, we no longer exist.
His argument was against the anxiety created by thinking of the unknown, about thinking of something that you could not grasp or understand. However, he began with the premise that death does not concern us.
People usually want to know what becomes of us, our knowledge, wisdom, character and personality when we die. Is there something — anything — beyond death?
According to scientists and researchers who have studied the subject, the answer is YES.
And there is overwhelming evidence supporting reincarnation. Dr. Ian Stevenson and Dr. Michael Newton have dedicated their lives studying reincarnation, and approached the subject from two completely different directions.
Dr. Stevenson documented and analyzed from a pure scientific perspective, thousands of cases of children who spontaneously remembered a past life. The results are published in this book.
Dr. Newton is not only capable of regressing people into previous lives, but into the life between lives as well. He discovered this technique by mistake while he was practicing hypnotherapy within the mainstream boundaries of this science.
According to Dr. Newton, the purpose of incarnating on Earth is to learn and evolve.
Every soul goes through various stages of reincarnation, gradually amassing, and getting in touch with their wisdom and moving towards its higher self — starting with being an infant soul and moving through being a child, young, and a mature soul, only to become a complete old soul.
And that’s when the reincarnation cycle is completed.
Death, then, is simply a short “summer break” for our souls, before we eventually return to school — right here, on Earth.
The end goal is to become an old soul and, eventually, graduate.
