Would you like people to attend your funeral? Why?
Would you like people to remember you after you are dead? Why?
Do you feel sad when the world has forgotten you? Why?
Why does it matter when you are already dead?
Knowing the answers to these questions help but a little. Because the ego of mind holds on to things still.
It learns only to truly let go, from the experience of total letting go, when fear is lost and bliss is found instead.
The idea of total surrender is scary but the actual act is liberating.
