@arijos0222,
We do not live in order to die. Rather, it is the very notion of being-towards-death that enables us to live. The impermanence; temporality, is what creates life. I speak of being as in the beings of Being; a Heideggarian concept.
In being-towards-death we are in the face of anguish. To understand what i mean by anguish I recommend reading some existentialist thought; such as Kierkegaard, Sartre, or De Beauvoir.
