Do Not Condemn, Rather Understand

Laitman_182_02Question: Why does the Creator allow murder and suicide?

Answer: If a person cannot cope with his great egoism, then the suffering forces him to end his life. From the point of view of the wisdom of Kabbalah there is nothing special about this because a person doesn’t “fly off” somewhere; rather, he ends his difficult, present life, and in this way he rejects the possibility of correcting himself, ascending and attaining the upper world. So he returns to this world but on different terms.

I don’t think that suicide is a correct decision, but I also don’t condemn these people because undoubtedly they are found in very difficult situations. We cannot blame or condemn anyone. We should always try to understand others.

Comment: Why do all religions strongly opposed to suicide?

Answer: All the religions claim that a person should still correct himself in any case, and that he has no right to part with life, because in his life he is given an opportunity to attain the goal of creation. Even the wisdom of Kabbalah speaks about this, yet in contrast, it doesn’t condemn or judge a person for this reason.
