Death in psychology

Again, talk Watson was not correct. There are many cases where people prosidevshie in anticipation of enforcement for many years, went to the penalty as a furious lions, and not as docile lamb. Forgive L. Watson, and this misconception is based on incomplete data, and listen to what he said next. "Maybe someone will seem to stretch it, but we believe that in the history of our relationship to death, repeating a sequence of stages of dying. In our history was a time when people refused to believe that death is a natural event, preferring to assign responsibility for it in any animated or stones forces. This is clearly evident in the funeral rites of civilizations "populated Delta (Watson was referring to the Sumerians, Assyrians, Egyptians.) Then comes a time of death as a real, final life events, typical of the Judeo-Greek civilizations . The next stage of the denial of death, attempts to cope with its reality. And finally, as if dropped from a height of today, our civilization is so close to the edge of the abyss that Transcendence is the only protection from death. " Watson calls on to get rid of the fear of death with the help of meditation. His appeal is fully consistent with modern-type varieties of Hinduism, Advaita Vedanta. Odin of the leaders of this trend Ramana Maharshi (1879-1951) described his experience to overcome the fear of death: "I am Odin sat in a room on the first floor of the house of my uncle. I'm rarely sick, and that day I felt fine, but suddenly I have known the fear of death. (At this time Raman Mahartpi was 16 years old). My health is not threatened me anything and I did not try to understand the reason ztogo fear. I felt that I was going to die, and began to think that I do. I do not think that you can apply to the doctor for the elderly or friends. I felt that itself should deal with this situation and find the answer himself, he found a solution to this situation without delay. The fear of death drew my mind into the depths of myself. And I said, referring to himself almost without words: "Here come the death. What does this mean? What does it mean to die? The body dies. But whether my body I have? It is silent and inert. I feel the full force of my personality. As well as hunger "I" in me the most, which is fine by him. Thus, I am a spirit, which is higher than the body. The body dies but the spirit, which is higher than the body can not be touched by death. This means that "I" is the immortal spirit. This was not just thought it was a discovery, which is poured into me as a living truth, and I accepted immediately, without thinking. "I" was something real, the only real property in this state. And all conscious activity connected with my body, was connected with the "I". From this moment on "I" attracted my attention and became the object of my continuous reflection, my constant surprise. The fear of death vanished once and forever. "I am" consumed all my attention, my whole life was now devoted to this "I".
