Why Do We Fear Death and Resist Leaving This World?


In life, we fear many things: pain, aging, poverty, loneliness, the unknown, disasters, women fear childbirth, students dread exams, but for most people, dying is perhaps the most terrifying. Death seems the most frightening and certainly the most inevitable thing in the world. Why do we fear death so much? Why is it such a painful event?


Why Do We Fear Death?

We cling desperately to our loved ones: husbands, wives, parents, children, friends, lovers, etc. Those who remain alive do the same. They fear being alone and don't want to let go of the dying, departing soul. Both parties do this in the name of love, but it has nothing to do with love. This thinking is not driven by love but by a paralyzing fear of what will happen to us and how we will cope.

Others may be attached to material things, careers, or power. Still others, to addictions—alcohol, drugs, food, sex, gambling.

We also greatly fear death because we don't know what will happen to us, where we will go after leaving this world. We are not prepared for it. From birth, we are taught many things, even women on how to give birth, but no one taught us how to die, what death is, and what happens to us after death. If we knew this during our lifetime, we would recognize that dying is a very joyful, happy moment that not only should not be feared but should be eagerly anticipated. Death and birth are one and the same. To be born on Earth, we must die on the other side. Conversely, to be born there, we must die here, but it is nothing more than changing one form of existence for another.


God's Presence in Our Lives

We all belong to God and came to Earth not as a punishment, as some people or religions claim, but to learn in the earthly school. When we come into the world full of trust, our life proceeds in harmony and love. If we come with sorrow, fear, and distrust, everything we do is filled with them. We resent God for abandoning us and leaving us alone, but this is not true at all. It is our erroneous thinking that causes us to live in sorrow, frustration, fear, and dissatisfaction. This continues until we understand what this mistaken reasoning is about. This may take one lifetime or several.

When we understand that God has never really abandoned us, our life begins to change dramatically. We don't need to cling desperately to what is known and constantly fight because we know there is plenty of everything, that God is abundance in all existence. After such a fulfilled life, we joyfully return to our Father's arms, and death is nothing but a return home. There is a good anecdote on this topic: A man reached heaven and, together with God, reviewed his past life, like a three-dimensional movie. After the screening, he said to God, "Father, when things were going well for me on Earth, I saw two sets of footprints on the path of my life. Yours and mine. But when things were bad, I saw only one set of footprints. Why did you abandon me then, Father?" "Beloved son," God replied, "those were the moments when I carried you."

The Great School of Life

Our life on Earth can be compared to a great school. When we come into the world, we are like children leaving their parents to go to school, and our death is nothing but a return from school to home. When a child leaves home for school joyfully, expecting to learn something, to meet friends with whom they will have an adventure, their life lessons proceed very harmoniously. They know and trust that everything will be fine no matter which path they choose because it will ultimately lead them to their goal. They trust they have enough time and all the possibilities. They also trust that school is safe, that nothing bad can happen there. They don't need to fear, hurry, or take life too seriously because, in reality, everything is a lesson. They know that after classes, their beloved parents are waiting for them at home.

When a child leaves home for school with fear and distrust, they can't learn much because they do little more than wait to return home. They resent their parents for sending them to school. Their life is filled with rebellion and hostility. In everything they do, they feel like a victim of cruel fate, having no control over their life, feeling maneuvered into it. They have no desire for learning or living. Most of us have this attitude towards life. We are angry at God for sending us here. We treat learning as a punishment, not as an opportunity for development. Staying in resistance, we cannot learn much, so we repeat the same lessons many times, like a student repeating a year in the same class.

The longer we attend school, the more we get used to it, until we eventually desire to stay here permanently. We forget that we came to Earth just to learn and that our life belongs entirely to God. This doesn't happen to all people, but to a large portion. When those who forgot this must leave, they depart for God full of regret for having to leave everything they have on Earth. It’s like a student wanting to take everything they play with at school home, not realizing that at home, they have everything they need and even more and better. Death is our return home and, therefore, can be full of joy, trust, and love because we are returning to our true Parents.
