I'm Scared Of Dying! What Do I Do?

Recommended Posts

So I'm scared of whats gonna happen to me after death.

Who knows, the Dharam Raja could decide to chuck me into a pot full of boiling hot oil for 100 million years or something 😢😢😢

And i dont wanna die cuz i dont wanna become a pig or something in my next life.  And i dont wanna have a caraplier life than i have right now 😢😢😢

What if i dont get to be a sikh and have to be born in a non gursikh family 😢😢😢😣

Im trying hard to do path, simran etc. But who knows what the Dharam raja is gonna do, its really harsh up there. I dont really care about mukhti or whatever, its not a goal lf mine cuz obviously its not gonna happen.

Keep Rehat Maryada, take Amrit, do a lot of Nitnem and Seva and sadhsangat.  Thus you will start having an internal spiritual understanding that will reshape your karma and your astral body (Man) will go to a higher more heavenly plane or might get another life as human being to continue expenditure of karma

Are you scared of death because you feel like you will lose everything you accomplished with your bhagti, then I would say don't worry. Or is it because you fear some artificial punishment in the afterlife, or fear of Karmic debt, if that's the case, you've probably been paying your Karmic debt all your life without even noticing, and if you reincarnate again, you will not realize that you've been paying your Karmic debt for this life at a future life. Focus on serving Guru Sahib and building pyaar.

Instead of worrying about what's going to happen to you, be grateful to God that you have been given the chance to connect to God.  So start putting those worries into actions and do Simran. But don't do it with fear, instead with love and devotion.

First of all death is an illusion. Energy doesn't die. We are eternal beings. Just changing forms. For those familiar with NDE (near death experience) studies it's clear there is no judgement but a life review where one experiences the effect of their actions as the other person. Strange enough none of the documented western cases see Dharamraj. Makes me wonder does ones belief has something to do with it as ones belief creates ones reality even after so called death(illusion)

(Ive already seen those vids)

So i guess I'll keep trying. What I'm scared of is the physical pain of dying and whats gonna happen afterwards. Meeting the messengers of death and dharam raja etc. I aint ready for none of that man.

Have you done anything wrong?

No matter how much sins you have commited or what your sins are, the Guru's forgiveness will always be greater.

You don't know what's going to happen, so quit worrying and stop getting anxious. You have to stop thinking negative and think positive. If you do good actions in this life, then you don't have to keep dwelling on it. 

How old are you? Why are you wasting you're energy on being afraid so much. We should be afraid of not doing good deeds or not doing Simran, but why are you going OTT? What matters is more is quality. Nobody here can say to you this, that or the other will happen.

Guruji tells us:

ਆਪੇ ਬੀਜਿ ਆਪੇ ਹੀ ਖਾਹੁ  
आपे बीजि आपे ही खाहु ॥ 
Āpe bīj āpe hī kẖāhu. 
Man himself sows and himself reaps (he reaps what he sows). 
SGGSji Ang 4 

Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji 🙏🏻

 

So instead of worrying, do good and good will happen with you too.

The only hell and heaven is what we experience whilst living. 

Dharam raja up there? There is no man sitting up in the sky anywhere. It is an example. Dharamraja is not going to make you walk through fire or beat you with a stick. 

We experience hell through our actions and we experience mukti through our actions, all in this life. 

When we do something bad we feel guilt and that feeling eats away at us and we are constantly worried of the outcome. It may make us sleepless and that is living in hell. Same with good deeds and abhiyaas. You feel feel mukat. 

Sikhi is about the present. Why worry why fear when everything that happens is in maharajs hukam. If maharaj makes us a pig then that is maharajs choice. Jeh jeh rakheh aap teh jaey kharovna. Maharaj says whereever you keep me, i am happy. 

Use the present to bring good future. But do not worry about the past or future. Chetna hei toa chet le nis din meh prani. 

Save the time you now currently have.

Maharaj will take care of everything. Cheer up and just appreciate what maharaj has given you at this moment in time. Do not worry about losing it because maharaj gave us this life and when the time comes they will take it back. :)

I am learning also and have a long way to go.

Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji

Practice nitnem ji everyday, and add sri sukhmani sahib ji to your nitnem ji. All gurbani ji is good, but adding sri sukhmani sahib ji to nitnem ji daily will change the person's character and they will automatically not be inclined do paapi things.. It gives descriptions of many deeds & consequences. Do this without any questions if you sincerely want help, and you will thank sri guru sahib ji later. & also, slandering anyone if they are a saint or not is not positive. If someone is bad, we may know they are bad, but what is the point to continuously keep wasting time on slandering them (especially since, when some are spending their final days, they wish they may have had more time to do paath, but instead they wasted their time in the past with slander which in turn causes dukh).. &  thinking about sri vaheguru sahib ji is way more fruitful, rather than remembering someone's mistakes. Before you do paath, always forgive. & do seva at gurdwara jis daily while reciting jaap. Also think about others in your life when you interact with them.. Are you adding positivity to their life? Or are you influencing any of the 5 dukhs upon them? Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh

OneBeing Jee,

according to the title of your thread, following are the soothing and lovely words of Fifth Patshahee Dhan Dhan Satguru Arjun Dev Maharaj, which answers it, and can dispell  that your fear about death, only if you have that pooran sharda by taking refuge in them:

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਦੂਖੁ ਜਮੁ ਨਸੈ ॥
प्रभ कै सिमरनि दूखु जमु नसै ॥
prabh kai simaran dhookh jam nasai |
Remembering God, the pain of death is dispelled.
 
Moreover, not only the fear is removed by His chintan, but as Guru Jee assures in the following verse, the very cycle of births and deaths, is cut off  for once and ever.
ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਕਾਲੁ ਪਰਹਰੈ ॥
प्रभ कै सिमरनि कालु परहरै ॥
prabh kai simaran kaal pareharai |
Remembering God, death is eliminated.
 
Such is His apaar beant wadeeayee.
 
Sat Sree Akal.

    • 1) Yes It's strange because he is not mr average joe british punjabi going for a holiday. I am fully supportive of his earliest release by the authorities in punjab. However to me this case is abnormal as for a british born guy who is against the Indian establishment by highlighting their crimes online to the world then wonders off to the same country on holiday that does not acknowledge the horrible genocidal crimes it committed against his community nor jails those responsible but gives them high govermental posts and z+ commando secutity. You think India has civilized? their drunkard uncivilized police is not using torture against their own and foreign civilians? not corrupt? I certainly wouldn't take the risk going to India unless I was there to help bring down the corrupt regime that's for sure. Why dont you see activists in the west like those who campaign against human rights abuses go to countries such as saudi, china, etc? because they would be tortured and/or killed by the corrupt brutal evil regimes. So I'm guessing he knew the risks but  just got unlucky cos India does have a pretty top of the range cyber intelligence monitoring facilities, they have started to oppress, raid and jail those citizens who raise their voices against state corruption and state terrorism by india.. its strange he didnt think Indian authorities would not be keen to pick people like him up. He is lucky he is Britsh and Sikhs in the west will raise their voice for him and tarnish India's image aboard and harm india's national interests too if need be. Why you think a black lists exists against Sikhs born in India? As they actively campaign against Indian establishment for their terrorism against Sikh civilians. Why do you think they never go back to India? come on use your brain... 2) Tan Dhesi  MP can only do so much for Sikh causes his primary objective is to cater for his constituents who elected him either way he is a visible symbol of a British born Sikh in the houses of parliament and he must recognise he represents the interests of the British Sikh population who look to him aswell as Preet Kaur MP to raise their voices for their fellow Sikh being held unjustifiably by the Indian authorities. Just as Muslim MP's fight for causes for their religious community as do Jewish MP's for Israels' interests and as do Hindu MP's for India's interests. Sikh MP's should actively fight for self determination of a Sikh homeland, highlight human rights abuses against Sikhs aboard and aswell as deal with issues and concerns of their constituents. 3) And no you grow up. There is a such a thing as doing a citizens arrest against known criminals. If British Sikhs are so passionate about protesting let them take direct action in arresting these dodgy Indian officials when they visit the UK to serve as a deterrent against Sikhs being killed or detained in india for dodgy grounds or anti-human rights reasons. Sometimes you gotta take a stand on an issue you care passionately about. If you remember the case of gay human rights activist peter thatchill he tried to make a citizens arrest of zimbabawe president robert mugabe when he visited the UK he failed to do that but it highlighted in the media further the crimes of mugabe . If even 100 Sikhs did the same the next time a high ranking India official came to visit the UK there will be a mini riot and it will radicalise a whole generation of sleeping well integrated and law abiding british Sikhs against injustices of any state that physically attacks them (which the govt can ill afford) Nothing in life is given to you on a plate you have to fight for it and ensure you keep fighting to maintain your human rights and equal treatment in society. 4) And lastly Nazanin is a british Spy working for MI6 and she is married to a fellow officer. UK foreign secretary Boris johnson MP the goof, let the cat out of the bag when he told the parliamentary committee she was training iranians how to be journalists, he wouldn't have said such a specific thing if it wasnt true and he wasn't briefed about it by intelligence officers. And if you know anything about foreign intelligence gathering you'd know must foreign spies work under cover as journalists and in NGO's to give a free pass in accessing area's or influencing populations of their enemy/rivals. So come on time to wake up and come into the real world, what you see on the news is only half the story. The true full story they never want to reveal openly cos it could harm their governments national and economic interests.  
    • Beautiful.. where do u get all these little stories.. I’m reading and they make me think wow.. thank u
    • Pressure uk mps, crown..to demand jaggi be extradited to UK Jio_/\_ http://maddiemccannmystery.forumotion.co.uk/t579-prosecution-of-uk-nationals-for-crimes-abroad
    • 1. nothing strange  ... he went to get engaged and married ...just like a whole lot of our families. Mum had done the rishta with older bro's help before passing 2 Tan dhesi has been involved too, but Preet Kaur Gill is the leader of the cross-party political group helping sikhs 3 grow up , you can't just wander into another country and do what you like neither can you detain officials this isn't India diplomatic immunity means something in international law.. india refused to sign the international accord on human rights which included agreement to not use torture or compelled confessions so there you have proof positive that India cannot be touched by that law as they didn't agree to be bound by it. Nazanin is not a british spy , and she too is suffering Iranian jail away from her husband and child , she has been held on a false case and will have another tried which she will possibly be locked up for 16 years . The human right organisations are trying their best to highlight her case.
    •   " SABR "
      I’ve always wondered what SABR (Patience ) is
      I was never given a proper definition
      so my concept of it was somewhat distorted;
      All I understood was that you wait
      until it’s over.
      But now, if I were to put it into words,
      this is what I’ve gathered so far:
      SÂBR
      is suppressing that angry voice in
      your head, the one that wants to
      yell at people for being inconsiderate
      to your struggle.
      SÂBR
      is swallowing this voice,
      overcoming it and learning to
      channel it towards a heartfelt du'a instead.
      SÂBR
      is forgiving someone when they
      dismiss your feelings.
      SÂBR
      is meeting those who deserted
      you, with a smile on your lips,
      even though your tears are one
      step away from exposing you.
      SÂBR
      is staying silent because you’ve
      already stated your point too
      many times before.
      SÂBR
      is conforming to someone’s demand because of their right over you.
      SÂBR
      is fulfilling the rights of others
      even when they transgress
      against yours.
      SÂBR
      is crying about your heartache in
      front of God and no one else.
      SÂBR
      is believing wholeheartedly that
      God has beautiful things in
      store for you.
      SÂBR
      is crawling forward even when
      you want to stop.
      SÂBR
      is an active state of being,
      it is not a theory to simply be
      discussed and forgotten....   ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
