This short video by the legendary Alan Watts will make you question your opinion on death.
Watts says if we truly take a deep look at what dying is, we will change our view on it. If we accept dying as a natural process of life, it will help us overcome our fear of impermanence, by letting go of our attachment to all things superficial.
We live in a culture where it has been rubbed into us in every conceivable way that to die is a terrible thing. And that is a tremendous disease from which our culture in particular suffers. – Alan Watts
