Do Suicides Really Go To Hell?

This part is dedicated to all who have lost a loved one to suicide and also to those who are feeling so desperate that they may be contemplating it themselves.

Rays of Wisdom - The Spiritual Background Of Depression And Suicide - Do Suicides Go To Hell?

One of the many false beliefs that have been haunting our world far too long is that suicides will go from this plane of life straight to hell and that they will in all eternity be condemned by God and the Angels. Many to this day seem to quite seriously believe this to be true, when nothing could be further from what really happens. Not that such erroneous views would ever have stopped anyone who seriously intended to finish their present lifetime by their own hands, when they had had enough and could no longer cope with it. But, it surely is a belief that piles a great deal more suffering unto any troubled soul who believes it to be true, as some do to this day. Unaware that anything lies beyond or behind humankind’s present existence, all such souls can hope for is that they will be snuffed out like the light of a candle and disappear into oblivion, without leaving a trace of their being behind and that forever.

First, however, let’s have a look at Heaven and Hell – are they really places anyone goes to? To me, they represent the various states of consciousness, which we create for ourselves and each other, in the here and now. Because we have freedom of choice, it always has been up to each individual whether to create a living hell for ourselves and those around us or to bring our own ideas of Heaven down to Earth in our daily lives.

All human souls throughout every one of their many lifetimes in physicality are in constant search of consciousness expanding experiences that increase their understanding of God’s true nature and of their own, and of the wisdom and truth of their Creator as it expresses itself on the Earth plane. For every soul there eventually comes the moment of awakening into the realisation of who and what they truly are and always have been, namely sparks of the Divine and eternal and immortal beings of light, who can and will never die. This quest continues until the soul has fully come home into the conscious awareness of its oneness with God and all life.

The experiences of my present lifetime have taught me that Hell on Earth is living without spirituality and without the conscious knowledge of the purpose and meaning of our present existence. At our entry into the Aquarian Age ever more of us are finding to our astonishment that God is something quite different from what we were told in past ages, namely that God is in you and me and in everything. Having succeeded in bringing my own small piece of Heaven onto the Earth, I am happy to share it with anyone who wishes to join me in it by partaking of my reflections and insights into the spiritual background of life.. Welcome to my Heaven, dear Friend.

Together let us now take a look at whether anyone really does go to hell for committing suicide. If there really were such a place of torment, would there be any need for people to visit it after the living hell they must have endured on the Earth plane, which drove them into considering finishing it all by their own hands in the first place? What else could bring about in human beings a state of mind when they can no longer tolerate their troubles, until eventually they cannot see any other way out of their misery?

When it is destined for one of us that our suicide plan should succeed, we are sure to believe that we have reached Heaven – or at least some kind of heavenly state –when the Angel of Death gently takes us by our hand and leads us through the veil of consciousness from our present hellish existence into our other world, the one of light. What heavenly bliss when, after a period of resting and recovering there from the stresses and strains of Earth life, the wise ones in charge of us take us under their wings. They explain to us where we went astray on our pathway through life and show us how we could have done better.

In this way the wise ones help us to draw the learning from the lessons that lie behind us and can benefit from them next time round. Having arrived in the world of spirit, every soul eventually comes to the conclusion that, rather than staying there forever, it would be wiser by far to get on with our evolutionary pathway and continue to grow and expand our consciousness through new encounters and experiences. And so it is likely that we shall apply for another lifetime in the not too distant future. As incredible as this may seem to you now, if you are feeling suicidal and are reading this, it is nonetheless the truth, as each new lifetime on the Earth creates a plentiful supply of fresh opportunities for resolving outstanding issues, mending and healing any disturbed relationships that have been left behind, and repaying our Karmic debts. 

When we no longer wander around in physical bodies in the world of light, we cannot help being  aware of our real higher nature as spirit and soul, who from time to time spends one of its frequent lifetimes on the Earth plane. In that state is much easier to come to terms with the fact that the purpose of all life is evolution and that this quite naturally also applies to us. There is then no longer any doubt in our minds about our true identity as a beloved child of the Great Father/Mother of all life. As one of those we pay careful attention to what the wise ones have to say.

The wise ones are all too familiar with the extent of humankind’s suffering on the Earth and many of them once walked there, just like us. And irrespective of what we left behind in Earth life, those in charge of us never sit in judgement over anyone. They truly are our friends who love us and deeply care for us. It is up to every one of us individually whether we wish to follow their guidance or not, for at all times we are free to make up our own minds and decide for ourselves on our preferred course of action or inaction, as the case may be. Our kindly advisors know only too well how hard and difficult Earth life with its harsh living conditions can be at times for soft and sensitive human souls. They appreciate how lonely and frightening an existence it can be for as long as our small and easily frightened earthly self remains unaware of why it has to be on the Earth and take part its life. It takes a long time until we become aware that in truth none of us is ever alone, although it frequently appears to be that way.

Whether we are as yet aware of it or not, the wise ones are constantly around and with us. They appreciate how hard it is for human souls to play their role as earthling, when for a very long time for educational reasons we have to remain unaware of our true identity as a beloved child of God, and that like Him/Her we have a masculine spirit and a feminine soul, i.e. the soft and sensitive feeling side of our nature. Each one of us has to spend many lifetimes on the Earth before we once more become aware that God is as much part of us, as we are part of God. Once we have matured sufficiently we begin to grasp how our Creator Father/Mother really does know the way of all life, for the simple reason that S/He is there with us and accompanies us through every one of our errors and silently endures everyone’s toils, troubles and pains, confusions and struggles.

This is how it comes about that our Creator knows the heart and soul of every human being much better than we ourselves do. S/He knows much better than anyone else will ever be able to do that for the period of our development as mere earthlings, it is impossible to be genuinely thankful for our earthly education. God appreciates that giving thanks and praise for everything that ever was, will be and now is, has to wait until such times when our earthly self has joined its spirit and soul in their conscious awareness of our true nature and origin. When our inner doors open,  our understanding of the meaning and the higher purpose of life increases and our consciousness expands, the way it is meant to do during each subsequent lifetime.

In the course of our long evolutionary cycle, time and again we return to the Earth plane to attend to unfinished business, resolve outstanding issues and heal relationships in which someone got hurt in past lifetimes.  This continues until we can deal with these things in the masterly fashion that is in keeping with our true Divine nature. Our conduct then shows the wise ones that all our lessons have been thoroughly absorbed and that our earthly education is complete. Only then will they allow us to move on to learning experiences on the higher and eventually highest levels of life.

•‘Suicide – Not The Answer’

* * *

From ‘The Universal Christ Now Speaks To Us And Our World‘

One day when I was in great discomfort, I prayed:
‘Please, save me from pain!’
The Christ responded with: ‘To help you bring forth
My Divine characteristics, so that you can grow ever closer to Me,
Each one of My children of the Earth
Must become familiar with pain.
Unless you have waded through painful experiences yourself,
How else can you hope to
Appreciate the depth of another’s suffering?

As you can see, your suffering and worldly cares
Are essential parts of your earthly education.
They are My teaching aids that with the passage of time
Slowly take you back home into the oneness with Me,
Until you are fully re-united with Me.
So rejoice! The more profound your struggles
And the deeper your pain,
The closer your spirit and soul can draw to Me.

This is how, for a very long time unbeknown to your earthly self,
Your consciousness expands and your soul grows.
Yet, it can only do so through each living their own lives,
Gathering their own experiences, and feeling their feelings,
Sadness as much as joy, and happiness as much as pain.
So, whenever something seems too hard or heavy for you to bear,
And wherever you may find yourself, never despair!
Just reach out for My hand, call for Me and I will be there.

I am the only one who can help you work your way through whatever comes your way,
And although you are but one tiny twig on the tree of life and knowledge,
Each one of you is a many-faceted jewel,
Priceless, precious and loved beyond compare and of immense value to Me.
You are one of the most beautiful flowers in My eternal garden and
I am the gardener, who prunes you constantly,
So that you may flower and mature and bear ever more fruit.’

In spite of all that was said before, I had the audacity to say:
‘Please, give me only the things of life I enjoy.’
And the Christ replied: ‘Beloved child,
Isn’t it blessing enough that I have created you and given you life?
From love you come and to love you return,
For love is My true nature and yours.
You are on the Earth plane,
So that one day you will find the truth that is in Me.
And when I grant you the gift of the wisdom to comprehend it,
You will be able to appreciate and recognise that
Everything that is in your life is a loving sacrifice from Me
And that things, people and every experience
That comes your way are included in this.
