I am freaking out at the moment. It has hit me all of a sudden that I am going to die one day. I am terrified. Really terrified. To the point that I have had panic attacks and almost black out due to the fact that I am scared not knowing what happens after I die. I have read the questions and answers on the website but it gives me little comfort as it just touches on the topic. What will be the next stage after we die? Will we take a human form and always be happy? Will we taste the beautiful fruits and see lovely clothes and be joyous all the time? Will we have feelings, memories, and everything else? I am freaking out just writing this. I have a strong belief. But now, I have hit realization that one day I will die and will not wake up again until Judgment Day. I am terrified and I do not know how to handle this.
