What are you afraid of?

"I am not afraid of death, I just don't want to be there when it happens." ― Woody Allen

I would be lying if I said I wasn't afraid of death. My fear of death is paralyzing. It's probably best not to write about death, it's such a morbid subject. This reminds me I need to read The Denial of Death by Ernest Becker. I do have a morbid fascination with death, but it's an unhealthy and dark fascination. I can't help but be interested in the subject, but then I get so terrified by all the ways a human can die. After death, there's nothing. Or maybe there's something. I don't know. No one can possibly know, but I want to believe in reincarnation.

Do you believe in reincarnation? Heaven? Hell? Nothingness? Darkness? Emptiness?

Let's just not obsess about death or after life and focus on life. Focus on living, existing and living the best life you possibly can. Let's make the world a better place. I will focus on that.
