Fear

The absurd belief in our immortality
Is what causes fear
Accept that we'll all die someday
That life is evanescent
Then see how your fears flee
And know peace


Note: I fear most a life unlived.

  1. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.

    1. Isn't that the same thing though?
      Besides, "A coward dies a thousand deaths, the valiant never taste of death but once."

    2. Yes, and No, in your words, "I fear most a life unlived". Though "unlived" would mean so many things to so many people.

      "Without fear there cannot be courage".

    3. I get that we all experience fear, and that it's probably a useful trait for survival.
      But when you think about it, how completely random and irrelevant our lives are in the grander view of the universe, then the fear of death, which is inevitable, seems quite illogical (although I too experience it). It just seems to me that we'd be happier if we accepted it, you know?

    4. For the record, i agree with your view.

      For the sake of conversation, "Man" can be logical, "Mankind" is fundamentally instinctual. From a Mankind's perspective, the truth that you talk about above serves no purpose, does it?

      "Not being known doesn't stop the truth from being true."
