Complaining About Life

Image result for death artwork black and white

For some reason people seem to dislike death. It’s quite strange actually. I’ve heard hundreds, possibly thousands of living people complain about how hard being alive is – and how stressful it is to exist. Yet, I’ve never heard of a dead person complain about being dead. Stress, suffering, pain – these come as a result of having consciousness. Without consciousness these feelings do not exist. Death is the end of consciousness, and thus is the end of pain. And yet people say death is a bad thing.
