All our life we think that we live for our aims, career, future, families. But the truth is that we live for nothing but the omnipresent death. Even knowing this truth, we always cringe at the idea of death.
Some people live for their aim, while others for happiness and success. There are yet other people who live for life itself. But since living is universal, the reason behind it should also be universal; same for everyone. But with different kinds of people(even organisms) and their ever different ideologies ; what is that one thing that makes them equal on every level.
Having myself faced the fear of death for two times, I think there is nothing more frightening than feeling its presence near you. It’s as if a sword is hanging over your neck and even a second of bad luck can cost your life. It makes me think that deep inside every one of us knows that one day we will get to our end, to the death bed. That there is no one who can avoid death.
