First off, death is not the tragedy that everybody thinks it is. It's simply another part of life. It's just a transition from one place to another; from this physical world, to a non-physical world. Physical death is meaningless, it's arbitrary, it's a joke, it's irrelevant. The physical body is nothing but a temporary vehicle or tool that Consciousness/Awareness/Spirit uses to temporarily experience this physical world. The key word there is "temporarily". Billions and billions of physical bodies have died in the past, and billions more will die in the future. One way, or another, sooner, or later, everybody and everything dies. It's not a big deal. That's just the way this physical world is. It is a world of change and evolution. Nobody can avoid physical death. Nobody. When it's time to leave this physical world, it's time to leave. Do you know of anybody that hasn't died, or that won't die? Then what's the point of getting all upset about it?
We see our mother, father, or some other loved one dying, but the physical body you are worried about dying isn't even your "mother" unless you have the limited perception that the physical body is what she is. You are not the body, and neither is she. You are IN the body, but you are not the body. If you can watch the mind and its thinkingness, then you aren't the mind and its thinkingness. You aren't the experiencer, you are the silent observer. Spirit/Consciousness/Awareness doesn't have a sex; it's not male or female. It doesn't even have a shape. It's non-physical, it's formless, it's timeless, it's eternal, it's infinite. The soul is eternal. In other words, it is never born, and it never dies. It is a timeless foreverness. It cannot be harmed or threatened in any way whatsoever, so worrying about death is a complete waste of time and energy.
"You speak sincerely, but your sorrow has no cause. The wise grieve neither for the living nor for the dead." - Bhagavad Gita 2:11
So yes, sometimes the body suffers, but it really doesn't matter because that's not what we are. We only think and believe the body is "me" because we're unaware of the truth, and we're unaware of the truth because we continue to identify the body and mind as being "me" instead of simply observing and being aware of them. But now that you are aware of the truth, there shouldn't be anything to worry about. The body you see suffering is just that; a body. That's all, nothing more. That body is not your "mother" or "father" because you are not your body either. The real you was never born and it can never die. Never.
"You were never born; you will never die. You have never changed; you can never change. Unborn, eternal, immutable, immemorial, you do not die when the body dies." - Bhagavad Gita 2:20
