It seems like an odd question, but you think about this a lot more than you realize. But let’s not get into that just yet.
Imagine life as a spectrum. Like the color wheel, for instance, and to have stability in life, you have to be at the center of that color wheel. On one side, there is happiness, on the other is sadness. On one side anger and the other side love, and so on and so forth. What happens when you drift closer to sadness on your “color wheel” of life? Not only do you have less happiness, but your whole scale is thrown off. Because of the lack of happiness, there is potentially less love and more anger or less peace and more fear depending on how your wheel is built.
Essentially, (there’s my favorite word) you have to have sadness to want happiness and anger to want love. It makes sense. Look at it this way; if you didn’t have fear, you wouldn’t have a sense of protection. You would cross the street without looking both ways. You would run red lights. You would live in danger and therefore would be incapable of appriciating peace. You have each sense and emotion for a reason.
So back to the topic question… Do you fear death? Some may say yes and some no, but I say that you have to fear death, in order to appreciate life, of course. Think about it- when you get sick, what do you do? You go to the doctor, get medicine, and take it according to instructions all to prolong your life. Why do you prolong life? Because you fear death. If you truly didn’t fear death, you wouldn’t get medication or even go to the doctor. You would embrace death and therefore would not appreciate life.
So my final advice would be to appreciate life. Live and let live. Fear death, but be content in it.
And thats all I’ve got to say. Make it a good day, guys!
