I try not to overthink. If I were raised as an atheist, I think I'd have an easier time accepting death as a natural thing, but my transition to atheism was a bit traumatic. I believe I will return to a ''state'' that ''I'' already spent billions of years at. So, in a way, this shouldn't be something be feared. The idea of spending an eternity under some sort of unquestionable divine jurisdiction is perhaps scarier. I wish I could just embrace my mortality as a good thing, but I'm not there yet. I think it takes time. I hope I live enough to get to the point where I'm totally in peace with it.
