What is death?

We all know that it is the end of life. As for me, I believe that there is two types of death. The first type is passive. It's a death that we all get at the end of our life, that imposes itself  upon us. 
The second type is active. Among us, some will prepare themselves throughout their life for it. It's a death that put us in a state of mind that will show us the totality of the universe, that will confront us with the Truth, about ourselves and what surrounds us. It will make our brain work 100%. A state of mind that will make us reach Buddha-hood. A state of mind that is so powerful, so clear, so strong that when confronted to it, most of us cannot stand it and die, except for those who got prepared...

The origin of fear

What is the origin of fear? Is it coming from the fact of losing something, or maybe someone? There seems to be so many of them with so many different reasons. Could it be that there is a primordial cause? Like the fear of death? Does it origin all the other fears? But what about the one who is not scared of dying anymore, does he stop fearing completely? 
And for those who commit suicide, does it mean that they're not afraid of death anymore? But then why do they kill themselves? Is it because, since they don't fear death, then maybe they are looking for it? 
I suppose that for those who believe in god, and therefore Hell and Paradise, or for those who believe in reincarnation, the fear of death is less strong than for those who believe that there is nothing after death. For them death is probably a terrifying thing. But then why those who believe either in god or in reincarnation still have fears? Do they fear god, or hell, or to have a bad reincarnation?
Then maybe the fear of death is not the primordial fear. But then what could it be? Maybe the fear of suffering. This one is universal. And the physical pain is among the least painful.

I have a question

Consider this, what, in this universe, do you think is nearing the most, this omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent Being that is God? Him, who does not have any beginning, nor end, and who is infinite?  I have found only one answer: The cosmos. It has no beginning, no end, is infinite and is omnipresent. If you are willing to add a consciousness to it, you will be able to give it omnipotence and omniscience.

The intelligence

To my belief, intelligence is not an end in itself, rather a tool. A tool that most of us use to satisfy their greed so they can be rich, or their pride so they can have power. What about the one using his intelligence to satisfy his heart?

The master

I believe that to become a master, when searching for spirituality, is a dangerous step. Especially if one doesn't reach enlightenment. The reason being the pride that one develops, especially if one has many followers. A good remedy is: the beginner's mind, which eventually leads to Zen mind.
