Why is suicide discouraged?

125 posts in this topic

If when you die physically, you will be God, why is suicide discouraged?

Wouldn't it be the best if everyone just died now?

Life is already God. You don't need to die.

Suicide is an act against the work of God, so to speak. Imagine the complexity and the energy required to come to be as a human. Being a human is a rare event in the Universe. And then all of a sudden you destroy it by killing yourself. Such a waste!

It's usually easy for us to see that we shouldn't destroy forests and oceans. Why destroy a human life?

God is HERE. Enlightenment is NOW.

No difference between living and dead


There is nowhere to go, face what is.

I'm also wondering about this. If Leo is so sure about what happens after death, why not he just hang himself?

That's a good point. He believes that he doesn't exist and nobody watches his videos so he might as well.

You are already dead and you are already god.


Everything is an assumption.

Really insightful. Thanks @ajasatya!

Has it occurred to you that Leo is enjoying life? What stupidity, to suggest suicide just because one realizes their true nature...

@Gili Trawangan No I meant if you are not awake, instead of spending 10000 hours meditating a quicker route is suicide

Until you are awake, God is a belief or a hypothesis. It makes absolutely no sense no matter how you look at it.

You're assuming you are not already there, and that suicide will get you there.. why?

But God wouldn't discourage you from anything, perhaps you can say some greater energy being exists that for us would be God that would not like that energy, but that's still duality and you ultimately..

I think it would be fair to say you take your mind and all the resistance and attachment with you after death, and at some point reincarnate (it already happened this time, probably 'after' as well), , and most importantly, suicide is a really negative impact for the people around you...

But most importantly it's not a problem as meditation is literally there for you to kill yourself without murdering your birth.

I'm only parroting his garbage. Want me to hunt for the quotes to back my point up?

Darn I was hoping this would be a discussion on assisted suicide for cancer patients or heavily disturbed individuals.  By your theory these people would be lucky enough to have quicker enlightenment if we supported assisted suicide.

The destruction, the killing, is part of creation. You cannot act against the work of God, as all acts are the work of God.

 

Is it not interesting how you created suicide so that you could then go and complain about suicide being against your own Will? You are playing with yourself.

If suicide was encouraged, you wouldn't be here asking this question.

So, maybe you are the reason why it is discouraged. Maybe the only reason why it is discouraged is to make you get to this point and ask this question, and then read my answer and realise that you are the goal of life.

I agree.

The Ultimate Truth is beyond this relative world where it's possible to committ suicide etc.

There are great movies where people get murdered etc.
