Dear Hazel,

I am sorry but I do not share your view that suicide is some kind of an illness. I believe that it too, the same as everything else that ever happens to us – on this plane and elsewhere – is part of God’s great evolutionary plan. Life on the Earth is a school, a place of learning, no more and no less. We are here to grow in wisdom and understanding and every one of our experiences intends to bring a bit more of it to us.

This life, all life and all worlds, and everything in them – including humankind – is a gift from God and therefore, sacred and holy. For the life of me, I cannot share the belief that a great many still seem to hold onto, that this life is a one-off thing. If that were true, our earthly existence would be an extremely unfair and unjust one, when in reality it is anything but that. When one takes a closer look at our world and its people, one surely can only come to the conclusion that such a narrow view cannot be right. First, because it does not make any sense, and second, because that would not do justice to the preciousness and holiness of all life. The greatest draw-back to the belief of the one-off system is that it fails to explain the purpose and meaning of so much suffering in our world. How could the all-loving and all-knowing Wisdom of the Universal Intelligence of its Creator throw the kind of fate upon any of Its creatures and creations, which we and our world have had to endure, as far back as some kind of records exist?

And then from time to time the question arises: ‘Why do bad things happen to good people?’ In my view, the only reason for this is the Universal law of Karma, also known as the law of cause of effect, to which all life is subject. So that nothing in the whole of Creation, in the vastness of space and time can ever be truly lost, this law decrees that everything in due course has to return to its Source. We are personally responsible for every one of our thoughts, words and deeds. Whatever we put out into the world in thought, word and/or deed does return to us with the unerring certainty of a boomerang. If this does not happen in this lifetime, it will do in another. Every human soul, without exception, can only learn from their own experiences to differentiate between good and evil, darkness and light.

As a result of this, if someone in their present lifetime walks the pathway of a very good person, the likelihood is that in a previous one they drew their learning from being an extremely bad person. To ensure an all-round education and to create balance in the great scheme of life, this is usually followed by a lifetime of playing the role of its polar opposite. The crop of the seeds we once sowed as one of the nasties of our world inevitably has to be reaped in our lifetimes as a goodie. Hence, bad things happening to good people. If as a good person we act in the right way by forgiving our trespassers as well as ourselves for creating the necessity for this lesson in the first place, opportunities are created for balancing our spiritual accounts, making good where we once sinned and redeeming ourselves.

With love - Aquarius

Suicide – Not The Answer

In case you are wondering what happens to all those who do not yet have any idea of the higher purpose and meaning of their earthly existence and therefore go ahead and commit suicide, let me explain. The Universe is with everybody. It knows the way of all things and everybody’s heart and soul better than we ourselves do and it is aware of everybody’s past, present and future. Above all, it does know exactly when someone has suffered long and hard enough to have learnt their lesson and cannot take any more.

Apart from being omniscient and omnipotent our Divine Father/Mother is also merciful. Whenever a soul has truly reached the end of the line, the Angels take it back into the world of spirit, its true home where it is tenderly ministered to. Here it rests and receives healing, until it is ready to be confronted with itself and the way it has coped with the lessons of all its lifetimes thus far.

I believe that there is no such thing as Judgement Day. Because the Universe loves us, it never judges anyone. Instead, we are required to evaluate ourselves. Only when the purpose of any given lifetime has been fulfilled is the human soul called back home. It makes no difference at what earthly age this takes place and in what manner we depart from this plane. To talk about anyone’s earthly demise as ‘untimely’, to my mind, means to doubt the great wisdom and love of our Creator. The Great Spirit is the Father/Mother of all life. This is the highest authority over everything in the whole of Creation and the only one who has any true power; nothing is beyond or outside Its will. Therefore, no soul’s departure from the Earth plane ever takes place without Its consent and that applies to any kind of death, including suicide.

No matter how low a soul may have fallen or how depraved it has become, in the course of this lifetime or any other, none of us will ever be beyond the love, the mercy and the forgiveness of God. This is the only authority in the whole of Creation who can truly appreciate when any soul’s mental, physical and/or spiritual struggle has been going on for long enough. When the suffering of any particular soul threatens to be more than the amount that is good and reasonable for its growth to endure, the Angel of Death draws close and releases us.

I do believe that the manner and the moment of our death are predestined and that suicides are no exception to this. After all, it is but one of many ways of returning to the world of light. Nothing in God’s Creation can ever be truly lost and every experience is valuable somehow. And the great transformation from one state of life into the other is always intended to provide valuable lessons for all involved, on both sides of the veil of consciousness that separates our earthly existence from our true home, the world of spirit.

Whenever the going gets too tough for our liking, what is it that stops us from trying to escape this life wholesale and leaping off its edge like lemmings into the sea? The wisdom of our Creator has stored in the deepest innermost recesses of every soul’s memories the sacred knowledge of our own true nature and home, and that is the place our soul yearns for and wishes to be released to when life becomes too hard to endure. But, the laws of the Universe decree that every soul must evolve and grow. The Highest Self and the Guardian Angel know this; they are guiding and protecting the small earthly self and taking it through the whole of its education, at all times standing by in total and unconditional love. Although they are ready to catch us when we fall, they will not interfere with any soul’s learning; if help is wanted it has to be asked for.

However, once we have learnt the lesson of killing ourselves, the memories of this event – before, during and after – are converted into one of the most valuable properties any soul can have. They are stored and referred to in coming lifetimes when particularly harrowing experiences have to be undergone. Such recollections are what stops large parts of our race from committing mass suicide, for example during times of wars and famines. Undoubtedly, this too is a gift from the Universe because it stops us from wasting precious lifetimes and delaying our evolutionary progress by unnecessarily repeating painful and traumatic occurrences like taking our own lives.

Every soul’s final destiny is constantly winking at all of us from afar and that is our loving reunion with our Source; the state that some religions describe as Paradise. To reach it, our soul has to cleanse and purify itself of all earthly desires and concerns; this process continues until the human energies are compatible again with those of God. Only then can a full merger take place. Now, who in their right senses would want to get away from that?

This highlights the urgency of seriously getting to work on the development of our character. Besides, the closer one comes to the light of the knowledge of humankind’s true being, the more one realises that when on the surface of life things at times seem too difficult to handle, taking one’s own life never has been or will be an escape route at all. But, the same as all lessons of life in physicality, the one of suicide can only be learnt through first hand experiences. That is why every soul has to end its earthly existence in this manner at least once.

There Is No Death

Extract from a talk at a Remembrance Service by White Eagle, from ‘The Way of the Sun’: ‘There is no death. Of what are you afraid? You may look upon an empty shell – like the shell of a chrysalis – and say: ‘This is death!’ No, this is not death, it is rebirth and life. Life continues. It always is, always has been and forever will be. We, your guides from the world of light, who are fully conscious of having passed the great initiation called death, come to you having crossed the bridge of love, which is partly created by the love you are giving us. God, the Great Spirit, has so created you and your bodies – your physical and your higher bodies – that you have the power within you to commune with those you love in the world of spirit. You have material available for the construction of this bridge between your physical world and the worlds on the higher ethers. We are coming to you and you can also learn to join us in full consciousness.

‘In your earthly life you can be builders, together with us, your companions of your spirit, of a bridge between your state of life and the higher life. When humankind has accomplished this task in full consciousness, it will know that the Angels and Masters, the great siblinghood of the Christ Star, are with you to inspire and assist you with all your tasks in earthly life. This does not mean shifting your present responsibilities onto the companions of your spirit. It means you yourself are acting on the Divine laws of the Universe. Some people seem to think they can sit back and let God and the Angels do the work. This is not the case. You are on the Earth to learn about vital spiritual truths and these lessons can only be learnt through everyone’s own daily experiences. You have to learn to do and act with love and great care. Merely saying so is not good enough.’
