I don't think I've ever been at peace with the idea of dying. The only time I don't fear death is when I'm numb to the reality of it (which is 98% of the time). I think most people are out of touch with their own mortality as a coping mechanism that keeps them from being overwhelmed by existential fear all the time. When it actually sinks in that I'm going to die, it's just this feeling of dread. It's not so much that I'm afraid of the unknown as that I often have this very strong feeling that death is total annihilation. I obviously don't know with certainty what happens, but I definitely don't believe that my individual personality & mind will survive my own death - I think if there is anything eternal about me, it's like this foundation that supports my existence rather than what's built on it (what's specifically me), if that makes any sense.

I know where I am going to die. It is in a lovely hospice on the banks of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra, Australia.
Serious question: Are you actually currently dying, as in you are currently in hospice right now waiting for it to occur (note: this is a yes or no question)? If so this is kind of a really really big deal.
If that's not the case, then you don't actually know that. There are SO many ways for a person to die that it's impossible to know where you'll end up dying. You might have a strong leaning, inclination, or desire to die there, but you by no means know that.
