I have this dread about death, yet some times I want to to end it all, it is a conflict that I can't get out of my head, I worry about it all the time, the voices tell me I not wanted on this earth and this gets me depressed and want to end it all.

I really am not bothered about it and will deal with it when the times comes. I live for right now, this very second so why should we waste time in thinking about the inevitable. I do not believe in reincarnation but the knowledge that energy regardless of the type cannot be destroyed. Its just a conversion process so I will always be here in the universe but not in your phone book anymore.

We are all composed of energy. Every cell in our body and every thing around us. We never truly die just the energy gets converted in different types of energy and the cycle continues.

This is so important message. I have a problem with anxiety and when you are anxious you always live in future and have some negative thoughts about it. How do you achieve this mechanism to live for right now, for this very second?

I think it is because at one point in my life I became so consumed with anxiety/depression and psychosis and everyday I had a huge fear of something bad was going to happen I just screamed at myself. "this is not living" if I am going to die then it then fine. I realised that in reality waiting and fearing death is such a waste of energy. Its so counter productive and we really can't do much about it. I live my life now knowing that I am lucky. I have one ride, one life so I spend every day enjoying things that are happening this second and I really don't care about tomorrow and if tomorrow is the end of the ride I can say we'll it was fun and I have not wasted my ride.

Thank you. I will copy your answer somewhere as a note to myself.

Death holds no fear for me. Having watched my dad die, I kinda cant summon the energy to care. The only reason I'm alive is because of my son.

I remember when I was a kid I lied awake at night sometimes scared about the day when I will die but now I'm older "not super old" I'm not scared of death but when I do die I hope its a peaceful painless death, the idea of going sooner rather than later sounds very appealing to me but I guess I'll have to wait for my time to come.
