Do not Fear Death

It’s all coming back to me. The old memories i had when i was young — of my life after death! The fear that i would burn in hell. The mental images i had of myself, my girlfriend and parents in heaven, a white golden heaven, full of angels singing songs of praise to the man on the throne. Come to think of it, how does a man spend all his time seated on a goddamn throne? Boring? I always imagined waking up in heaven, being greeted by European angels, treated to a cup of tea, no a cup of milk and honey. I remember how i used to feel. For me, death was the thing i most feared, for it would define my destiny. Eternal destiny. Hell or heaven.

One thing i always wondered, all we shall be doing is singing songs of praise, and praising this man on the throne? When i think how tired i got just staying in church for two hours, i shuddered! Would i manage that feat?

At one time i flipped some versed in the bible that talked about heaven. The place looked rather small for all of us. The only good thing about it was that it was made of pure gold, and had several entrances. But in terms of size, the book of Revelation 21:16 says in fact, it was in the form of a cube, for its length and width and height were each 1,400 miles.

1,400 x 1,400 = 1,960,000 square miles. Will we fit?

Anyway, then i decided to do further research. You know if you want to go for a journey, you ought to read about the destination as well. Revelation 7:4 gives us the number of 144,000 who shall enter heaven and then the context has something interesting to consider. We are over 5 billion humans, dying after an average of 70 years. How the hell would we all fit there?

My childhood was filled with a lot of trauma, a lot of fear for the worst. I remember when my grandfather died, when i was 10 years, i always wondered whether we would meet in heaven. Of course i dreaded the thought that i would burn in hell, while he smiles in heaven down at me.

But today, i am in no more fear of that CRAP! I have decided to welcome death when it comes. I removed myself from those stupid imaginations of heaven and hell, and essentially became free. And am sure most of you are still caught up in this confusion. Heaven and hell do not exist. And if you want to become free, then just remove such ideas from your head. Let no pastor convince you of life after death. Let no father push you to this corner of uncertainty.

Death is death is death. There is nothing to fear about it, nothing to look forward after it. And there is nobody who knows what death brings. How it looks like. So live your life without this fear of the afterlife, and you will be happy!

That’s all folks!
