At times I get some messages like “I am planning to commit suicide. Please help me.”
For starters, I REFUSE TO TAKE CASES OF SUICIDAL PEOPLE.My instant reaction is to ask the person to call suicide helpline and block him.
Here are the reasons:
- I think they need psychiatric help and suicide helpline more than astrological remedies. We astrologers are not trained or equipped to handle such situations.
- Nobody wants their name in the “recently called” list of someone who is about to commit suicide. Kindly call a suicide helpline and not me.
- Then there are those who are simply trying to blackmail me into giving them a free consultation. The simple answer is NO.
There is a reason that all religions and spiritual scriptures are unanimously against the idea of suicide. Because all the enlightened beings knew that it would add to the misery of the being in future. All ancient and modern saints off and on stopped people from committing suicide. There are may stories of Sai Baba preventing people from killing themselves. If Enlightened Saints like Sai Baba do something, it always has a deep meaning.
However, for those who are mulling over suicide, here is my advice based upon the study of scriptures:
ADVICE #1: SUICIDE WON’T HELP: KARMA CAN’T BE CHEATED
You can’t run away from your Karma….!
You can work your way THROUGH karma but you cannot avoid it. What has to be endured, has to be endured. You can leave your body but your Karma will chase your soul…then what would you do?
ADVICE #2: SUICIDE WILL MAKE IT ONLY WORSE: You will get downgraded.
Nature gave you a car (your body and other assets), to complete your karmic journey. However you decided to crash that car (commit suicide). Now, nature this time, nature may give you a bike or even a cycle.
Now you have to face the same journey only with less resources and increased difficulties. May be next time you are not this educated, have this support, may be you are born in an oppressive country, you can even be born with a deformity, and you would definitely be poorer and weaker.
In next life you will face the similar situation, only made worse. Changing your address doesn’t clear your credit card debt…just your case goes to hard recovery….!
ADVICE #3: TIMES CHANGE
There is no eternal damnation, no matter how bad times are, they always come to an end. Best way is to live your life, is with acceptance of Karma and knowing the truth that times keep changing. By working out our Karma we not only clear the mess, but we develop strength and wisdom required for the future. So hang in there.
ADVICE #4: WORKING OUT KARMA WILL GET YOU AN UPGRADE:
You would not only clean up your karmic mess (by enduring the onslaught of bad times) you would also be stronger and wiser. So guess what if you did your best in this life, nature will consider you worthy of an upgrade in the next one.
So folks, I hope you have learned a thing or two from this and are not thinking of ending your life any more.
If still you feel suicidal, kindly call a suicide helpline and not me.
