Fascination with Death « The Words Least Spoken
Shared by Achen
I'm learning more about the Afterlife and death right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: Are people too afraid to think about the afterlife and death? As I was reading in my Google Reader, this blog post caught my attention because I wanted to know how someone could become fascinated with afterlife and death.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that you should really cherish your life, because in the end everyone will eventually die. Even though you will go through pain throughout your life, but you must make the most of it, people should express your feelings and take chances, after all..when you die you will no longer have these feelings anymore.
I think this is very true and sometimes you should be happy even though you are hurt, because you can feel pain, it makes you feel alive. Would you rather feel a breeze of wind or snow falling rather than never feeling it at all? In a way I do agree with this quote because I too want to make the most of my life, after all life is short.
It is a scary concept and at times I tempted myself to face death by aggravating it and in a way that is where my habit of constantly putting my body in a state of constant pain and testing. For some reason, to me at least, I find that pain is enjoyable.
Of course that is because I accustomed myself to the facade that pain equals happiness because pain is what makes me feel alive and happy.
