Well honestly Akragon I'm not going to make a promise that can not be kept. There will be days when I fight the word suicide and I'm not about to
lie to you. I still feel this way and I wish to be totally honest with how I feel. To boot I began to almost relapse and I'm realizing I need to
practice and keep to my own teachings for me. I don't think I truly love myself until I believe in myself also and thats harder then loving yourself.
I truly think it is....
I really need you to understand something my dear... Life is a gift given by God... Now while its true that life is eternal, you also have a path
that you must walk... Of course there will be bumps in the road as you travel, but you are meant to finish your time here... IF you end your life
prematurely... you'll be comming back to the physical world either way... And the Karma you will have accrued by ending your life before its time
will not be pretty... in other words. Those who destroy what God gave them are not worthy of this gift... you unknowingly condem yourself to
return to this reality because simply put... you haven't learned what you are here to learn... Thus you will not only increase the problems you'll
encounter in your next incarnation, but you're litterally taking a step backwards, if not several....
Look at this passage from an ancient book called "Pistis Sophia"... one of my favorite Gnostic texts...
A "man who curses" is given a body that will be continually "troubled in heart". A "man who slanders" receives a body that will be
"oppressed". A thief receives a "lame, crooked and blind body". A "proud" and "scornful" man receives "a lame and ugly body" that
"everyone continually despises." Thus earth, as well as hell, becomes the place of punishment.
These are the mildest of sins... nothing compared to murder... rape or other such attrocities... IF this is what these people will recieve in their
next life... Can you imagine what you will recieve if you destroy what God gave you?
Your Body is a temple of God on earth... Suicide is one of the greatest of all sins... because not only are you assuming Gods authority... But
you're stealing from him as well...
You have the right to do as you will... no one can stop you... but you're not putting yourself in a better postion by prematurely ending your
life... you only create more misery...
Clearly you've been given many gifts in this life... DO NOT waste them my dear friend...
We all have our time here, and we all must face death eventually... that is one of the few absolutes in this life...
As i've said before, you must be the change you want to see in the world... show the world that tremendous love inside you... your soul is
litterally screaming at you to make that change.
Please hear what i tell you...
Love is the key... its within you and within all life
Practice it, know it... Be love... And you will have the world at your command
