fear of death. there is nothing mystical in our views of life and death.we fear death because by dying we lose our worldly possesions.i like my garden.i like reading a book.i love my close relations whom i never want to lose. i love my clothes,my all things starting from my writing pen to most valueable thing in my life i,e my relations.by dying i lose all this and therefore i do not wish to die andit may be that my whole life consists of such temporary worldly desires and their gratifications.if so,i cannot help being afraid of what will end these desires.but if these desires and their gratification have given way and being replaced in me by another desire------the desire to do the will of god to give my self to him in my present state and many possible future state----- then the more my desires have changed ,the less i fear death and the less does death exist for me.and if my desires be completely transformed,then nothing but life remains and here is no death .to replace what is earthy and temporary by what is eternal is the way of life and along it we must travel. if we free ourselves from the love of world and with the total renunciation of desires, death ceases to have any significance and dedicate our life to god , the fear of death will haunt us no more. no young man ever thinks he shall die. he may believe that other will, or assent to the doctrine that all men are mortal but he cannot bring it home to himself individually.youth has absolute antipathy with old age as well as with death.perhaps the best cure for the fear of death is to reflect that life has a beginning as well as an end.there was a time when we were not ; this gives us no concern-------why ,then, should it trouble us that a time will come we shall cease to be?i have no wish to have been alive a hundred years ago, why should i regret that i shall not be alive a hundred years hence..
