Of course, we all know the answer to this question. We are not prepared to die, not now, not ever. If we knew when that will occur, we would do anything that stays in our power to prevent that. Even so, I'm pretty sure it won't last for ever. If you got spare from an dangerous situation and you're still alive, that means you were meant to pass through that and be alive. Moreover, I believe you have a mission and have to accomplish that mission. But that's another story.
Back to the title question, I think people are afraid of death because they don't know what's on the other side, not because they are actually scared.
So you pass into the other dimension and now you are dead here. Your family is moaning for you, you can see all of them and it is said you can even hear them, but you cannot say a thing: you're dead. Besides the moan, families concur a very difficult task, the one you may avoid if you put your personals into order. For that, all you have to do is to gathered together all your documents, papers, certificates and so on. Of course, you don't have to forget about your will, if the case. All that should be kept under a key, and only one or two persons should be invested with a copy. Among this documents and folders, you may want to consider these ones:
- Birth Certificate
- mMrriage / Divorce (if applicable) papers
- Mortgage Contracts
- Life/ / Medical Insurance contracts
- Medical situation
- Bank account informations
- Proof of ownership
Keep them all in order, so that your family could find and use them if necessary.
