In earlier posts on what happens after death, I had written that death is just like packing your bags and going on a long holiday; it’s not the end of your existence. This post is a continuation; where I would like to clear certain misconceptions which might arise; people getting the wrong notions and taking an escape route; Suicide. Read this post before taking that extreme step.
There will always be people who would want to end their lives to escape from trying and desperate conditions. They see suicide as the only visible option, to put an end to trying conditions; and marking the beginning of a new existence.
Suicide is no escape; the natural life span is fixed for each and every living entity; this is what the Indian adepts teach you. There is no escape from this basic human law; least of all suicide.
Those committing suicide will immediately slink into a deep state of coma; total unconsciousness. They will come out of this coma, when their natural life span as originally fixed is over. After this they will come out of this slumber and be faced with the same trying conditions, which they experienced when they committed suicide. They will then have to be born again to finish; what they failed to face; in a reincarnation with similar trying conditions.
Then there are those who commit suicide because of frustration in not being able to achieve sense gratification. Such souls when they awaken will most probably move around as various kinds of spirits; trying to enter the conscienceless of like minded frustrated individuals on earth, such as the rapist, the robber, the drunkard, the drug or gambling addict. They will live a tormented existence, all they time trying to find some “Body” with a similar mindset to fulfill their sexual, monetary and other unfulfilled desires.
Such frustrated souls are the cause of the doom of the people whose consciousness they enter. A lot of such addicts and criminals have often spoken of an increased uncontrollable desire, over which they has no control.
So my advice is do not commit suicide, however trying your circumstances are; you are jumping from the frying pan into the fire.
