Dying to the Fear of Death

posted by Guy Finley

Question: When I am in physical pain and not in control of what my body is doing, is there a tip you can give me for easing the seemingly inevitable anxiety?

Answer: In one sense, everything about this life is a kind of preparation for death. This death that is inevitable physically is one indicator that we should be using its long shadow to find ways to stand in the Light. As strange as it seems, it is this fear or resistance to our own physical end that perpetuates our painful relationship with it. It is hard to understand, but if we will not run from this fear, but rather become intimate with it, we will grow so tired of being afraid that we will die to the fear. Dying to this fear is the real beginning of dying to death. This is something you cannot have explained to you, but rather it is a bold inner requirement we are all given the opportunity to realize. If we will refuse to run from the battle we face, whatever it may be, victory appears!
