Of death and dying


I’m not comfortable with Death. I have been struggling to grasp what happens to us when we die or are dying. I know scientifically what happens to our bodies. That’s not what bothers me. Exactly what happens to ME? That frightens me that we just cease to think, to feel, to see. It’s somewhat comforting to imagine that our spirits float above our dead bodies, but is that really what happens? Is there an afterlife? Are we reincarnated into someone or something else? Perhaps if I had a religion I’d have better answers, but I don’t think I’d be content with them. Does anyone else have these thoughts?
