I think fear of death is something that we can embrace. If humans didn't fear death, then we'd all be driving our cars like fuckwits and the world would collapse into war and reckless carnage. Fear of death motivates people to fight predators and disease, and gives people a reason to live a more fulfilling life.
Accepting fear is accepting death.
I think I learnt to accept death by considering the cycles of the natural world. Everything around us exists in cycles, seasons, day and night, the moon, the tides, a wave, evaporation and precipitation, a flower and a seed, whether you believe in eternal life in a spiritual sense or through the birth of a child, death is just a part of the endless cycle of life.
