Alternative & Complementary Medicine
It is a myth to think that death is "out there" waiting for us. Death is here with us, tied into the flow of life. There is a wonderful saying, "You will never be more alive than you are at this moment, and you will never be more dead than you are this moment." Your goal, then, should be to experience yourself as fully as you can, to become so alive that death will no longer be a threat. Don't see yourself as struggling to remain alive against all obstacles; see yourself as a river that accepts all change because change is natural as you move from one life stage to the next. When asked why he was so calm about dying, Socrates said, "I've been walking toward this destination all my life. Why should the last footstep make me afraid?"
