Q. Why should I live when I am feeling low in my life? (As asked by someone).
LIFE IS PRECIOUS
Life is very precious to us
It need not be wasted
Because of this life of ours
Has been bestowed by our Creator
With a lot of expectations
That during this life
Granted to the person concerned
Has a definitive purpose
And that is to perform
His/her duty with utmost sincerity
Without attaching to the fruits of action
During that period we are endowed.
During this period granted to us
We’ve to remain within the confines
Of emotional balance
When our emotions go berserk
And we want to cut short our lives
When facing some hardships
And want to down our own life’s ship
With a torpedo of our own making
Of which we’ve got no right at all to take
A precious gift without any doubt
Provided to us by our deity – the dearest One.
EVEN THOUGHT OF COMMITTING SUICIDE IS DOWN RIGHT NEGATIVE
The reason for dying may be any but to commit suicide is not right according to the law of land, ethically and morally. Committing suicide means that you do not want to face the vicissitudes or ups and downs of life. Those who cannot face the lows and highs of life do not know the purpose of life here on this planet. It should be kept in mind that everybody has problems, some has health-related problems, some have relationship related problems, some have financial related problems and still, there are the ones who have psychological problems. Be that as it may, even a thought of ending one’s life is offensive and result of negative thought process and will impact our present-day thinking and if saved or attempt fails then it entails punishment as per the Laws of the Land.
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES IS DUE TO OUR PAST KARMA
You should never forget that what we are presented is due to our Karmic deeds or misdeed. It should never be forgotten that we are here on this planet for some purpose – the purpose is to undo Karmic debt we have created for ourselves by leading a negative oriented life – rather than cribbing when facing difficult situations, just face them head-on. If you want to die, then die for a cause for which you will be remembered.
EVERYBODY HAS PROBLEMS SHOULD NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
Remember always; who does not have difficult situations? Without exception, everybody has some problem or the other. If one is financial sound, may not have the sound health to enjoy everything available, if a fellow has excellent comforts may not have sound sleep, if one has a palatial house but nobody to live with us, if we have the good educational background but no employment due to one reason or other. Then what?
NEGATIVE THOUGHTS SHOULD BE KEPT AT THE BACK-BURNER OF OUR MIND
I had and still have an active life at my age, whenever some negative thing happens, I turn my back to this negative emotion and try keeping it in the back-burner of my mind and after a period of time, I forget to remember what problem I had.
NOBODY CAN ESCAPE DIFFICULTIES IN LIFETIME
This should also be remembered that even Lord Vishnu’s Incarnations of Lord Ram and Lord Krishna had difficulties when they had their sojourn on this earth. Lord Rama was constrained to go to 14 years exile and subsequent death of his father Dharashtha and further abduction of Sita Maa by Demon King Ravana. Lord Krishna had to leave his home and hearth; Mathura/Vrindavan where he spent his childhood days in Dwarka. How much emotional perturbation the people of Nand Nagri and other places had when he left there. If the incarnations of Lord Vishnu could face worst situations and came out unscathed then why not us humans.
SUICIDE IS NO SOLUTION OF ANY PROBLEM
Further, dying is no solution to anything. If one commits suicide; and I think you may be believing in on rebirth – then on your re-birth after committing suicide, you will have the same sort of life in next birth too as you have to carry your KARMIC DEEDS and MISDEEDS to your next birth. Then why to even think of finishing our life? Face the life here itself. Have positive orientation in life and be with it.
FACING THE SITUATION HEAD ON IS THE ONLY SOLUTION
I think the biggest reason for continuing your life is to face the situation as you are placed thereby convert your negative Karma into positive ones. Maybe God will come to your succour and you will have it all what you want here in this life itself.
Believe in GOD and believe in yourself, there is always a way out.
