the caveat is once death occurs and your existence and consciousness ceases to exist, you will no longer feel anything anymore. it will become as nothing.

I'm not scared of dying, I'm scared of leaving my family and people I care about behind.

interesting to note the various near-death experiences that people have and their experience with light

and their not wanting to return...

in the new testament, it s written: "perfect love cast out fear"

actually here is the context

There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love. We love because (God) first loved us.(n.b. love as self sacrifice, not as a feeling)

I feel sorry thinking about the people I'll leave behind and their sorrow. But I'm not scared of dying at all.
