Hello dear readers, I recently heard of the death of a friend of a friend by suicide which prompted today's discussion with Guidance.
What do the guides have to say about suicide?
There has been much misinformation given about this subject, especially information that has been filtered through the lens of religion. While suicide would never be considered from a spiritual perspective to be a wholesome choice, sometimes it could be perceived as a necessary one; especially for those souls who are suffering from a terminal, debilitating illness. There is little judgment for those who would see fit to take an animal “down,” but there is much judgment on those who wish to end their suffering and leave a vehicle that is diseased and causing much pain and suffering.
While we will not go into an in-depth theological discussion as to why, where and when these beliefs were created on your planet we will say a few words on the matter. We pose this question, why is it not considered morally reprehensible to take the life of an “enemy” in a war situation, but is considered a soul-damning act to take one’s own life? We tell you again and again, Source Energy does not judge, only humans do. It is also not useful to compare one human experience to another. We have shown this one today that one’s INTENTION at the time of death is very important and will affect everything. If one takes one’s own life out of contempt and anger towards others, with a desire to punish or harm, this would be considered very negative and karma producing, indeed. If one clearly has the desire to end one’s suffering whether it is physical or emotional without intent to harm others that is a different scenario. It has been criticized as being a very selfish act and we say this, an act of suicide with those that leave behind a family of their own creation, especially with young children under the age of 18 has difficult karmic implications. This does create an atmosphere of harm in those surviving him or her. You see the differences here? There is certainly not one “catch all” explanation or karmic path that everyone will fall underneath.
In any case of suicide, it is beneficial to offer potent prayers to both the deceased and all of those connected to the person who chose to end their life in such a manner. It has been said before by your seer Cayce and others, that suicide does leave a pattern or a “samskara” on the soul of the individual that must be dealt with or worked out at some point in the soul’s future. In actuality, holding thoughts of Purgatory, Hell or some other type of damnation are not helpful whatsoever to a soul in their future journeys. We would like to see new information disseminated and accepted among your people to shift the judgment around this issue and to bring more love, patience and understanding for all of those involved.
We leave you this day with peace unending. Aum. Shanti. Shanti.
