It is a circle of life, everyone is connected and “all goes onward and outward, nothing collapses” (Whitman). The soul is not altered by death and the body becomes one with the earth after death. He continues to insist that death is not to be feared because it is almost an adventure, saying, “to die is different from what anyone supposed, and luckier” (Whitman). Because people are not fully contained in their bodies, they live on. Most people do not know that the soul is immortal, and that causes fear of death.
Dickinson’s view on death reflects Lao Tzu’s opinions of death, both of them believe that death is the most normal thing in the world and death is not the end of the life; and people ought to treat death as a friend instead of fearing death. Even though Woolf’s attitude to death is not as friendly as Dickinson’s, she also believes that human beings should not fear of death, which is same as Dickinson. A scientific experiment did by Ducan can also support Dickinson’s view on death; the experiment proves that all human beings have souls, and souls will not die with people 's physical body but will leave the body and attain the eternal life. In conclusion, human beings are destined to die, but human’s spirit is able to have the eternal life. Therefore, it is unnecessary to be fear of the death, but welcome it as a friend, when it is
It is a cycle of birth, old age, illness and death. When one’s dead, a new life comes about almost instantaneously. But, while we are still alive, we fear death as it is a mystery: nevertheless we do not like talking about it in a way parallel to discussions about ill-health. We avoid talking about it and view it as abhorrent or bad luck. It is a natural process that no one can deny or avoid, yet we all exist in the same way, whence we come and depart.

The relationship between death and the samurai can not be understated. Death is inevitable, and an honorable death is the most desirable thing a samurai could hope for. The samurai should live his life as though his body is already dead, and through this "he gains freedom in the Way. His whole life will be without blame, and he will succeed in his calling". If a samurai lives his life as though his body is already dead, he will have not have to worry about actually dying.
Szymborska is fighting against the idea of Death having power over humanity by providing reasons not to let Death win, such as, laughing at the banality of Death. It isn’t something to be feared or revered. Szymborska points out all of Death’s misses, then she points out the beautiful things in life that thumbs its nose at Death. In the final lines of the poem, Szymborska writes, “As far as you’ve come / can’t be undone” (47-48). Although, Death means life has come to an end, life’s journeys and memories can never be erased; they will always be remembered.
If a person has lived his life honestly, successfully or even completely, should not the correct response to his death be a smile? Why do people find the need to focus on the negative aspect of death? Death is an unavoidable aspect of life, and no matter how much you wish, it will never go away. Do we ponder why the sun will rise every morning? The answer to this is no because you have accepted it as a necessary reality of life.
But the inevitable always arises, and we find ourselves in the same place that we started. Why is this? From a more Taoist point of view, life could not be without death. Pleasure could not exist without p... ... middle of paper ... ...ng life as it is. Living in the now holds onto nothing, but accepts everything, because it's a state of just awareness.
I believe that death is a good thing because it offers the individual a way to change his or her form as a means to end impermanence. Surely, no one wants to commit suicide, but retaining an immortal body would, eventually, demand an end to existence (through death) that cannot be avoided. These factors define the purpose of death as a natural change in human existence, which should not be removed as a part of the life and death cycle of our
Afterlife is (in some religions) life after death. Those who feel that death is a positive factor in someone life may argue that there is an afterlife waiting for people, animals and all other living things in the world that are destined to become deceased. While others against death may argue that death is the final chapter in a person’s life and there is nothing awaiting them afterwards. However, I believe that death is not the end of the road. There is exploratory confirmation to recommend that life can proceed after death, according to the biggest medical study carried out on the subject.
