The fear of death

 

The fear of death is the last smokescreen for the fear of love. The mind looks at nothing and calls it something, to keep from experiencing what it really is. Every fear is the fear of love, because to discover the truth of anything is to discover that there is nobody, no doer, no me to create suffering or to identify with anything. Without any of that, there is just love.
– Byron Katie

What I fear most of death is….

I will die before I have fulfilled my purpose. It will be nothing. It will be unkind. I will suffer. I will regret. God will be disappointed in me. It will be worse than this. I will be lost. Others will grieve and suffer. I won’t be here for the ones I love.

Turnaround to life:

What I fear most about life is…

I will die before I have fulfilled my purpose. It will be nothing. It will be unkind. I will suffer. I will regret. God will be disappointed in me. It will be worse than this. I will be lost. Others will grieve and suffer. I won’t be here for the ones I love.

And that’s equally or more true. I can find where I have each of these thoughts about life. I am already living my fears about death, because they are my fears about life.

Additional beliefs:

I will die. There is a purpose to my life. I need to find my purpose. I need to fulfill my purpose. It’s suffering. It’s regret.
