I don't think it is a right, I think Life is precious and sacred.
But, I was wondering, does anyone know if animals commit suicide? or trees or plants or any other creature or thing that lives? I always think of
Life as a force or energy toward survival, a moving forward and growing bigger greater, onward. Like into a fullness of Itself. Like a seed, to a
bud, to rose in bloom, and how all things work together to allow for that rose to bloom.
Yes, it does die, but it dies naturally, it does not do itself in. And, even if it is struggling for water or sunshine, it still tries to live---
Like those little flowers that bloom in a crack in the sidewalk with out any water and people stepping on it---Its pretty cool.
Those dolphins and whales that beach themselves, I don't think that is mass suicide, I think they have gotten disoriented by those underwater sonic
noise blasts. I am only surmising this, but I think all life strives for survival.
Except some humans. Must have to do with a disconnect with their natural self. There must be some kind of detachment from reality or a sense of
separation from themselves. Like they get caught up in a conceptual self rather than knowing or finding the real and authentic self. Well, something
like that, I am guessing. Because our natural state of being does not want to kill itself, it just does not, no matter what it has to face or do or
go through. Trying to kill the self just seems so unnatural.
Even those guys who get stuck in rocks and things and they literally chew or knife their arm off to survive, to live, that seems more like the
nature of an authentic being.
I know animals do that too, they will chew off a limb in a struggle to free themselves from 'death' in a powerful urge toward Life, to live.
Remember Frank Carpra's "Its A Wonderful Life" all about how each of us is special and we each make a difference, we can make life better for others
or we can make it worse, its up to us. I choose Life. I choose to Love this Life that God gave me, and do my best.
