New Life #402 –The Root Of The Problem Of Suicide In Our Time
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
What leads a person to think about suicide, in what state is he in before taking this step, and in what way is it possible to get him out of this emotional state?
The Root of Suicide
Some of the people who are going to commit suicide see all other people as unfortunate. We must find a solution because there is growing emptiness, depression, and despair, and finally suicide. There are those who don’t find any reason for a life like ours, maintaining our body and our descendants until we die.
Existential questions arise in a person depending on his level of development. They distinguish the animal from the human.
A person who is going to commit suicide feels like his life is to no avail and he has no reason to live. Before committing suicide, a person suffers, he lacks any possibility of some kind of benefit for himself or others. The suicidal person feels that everyone is drugging themselves in order to carry on in life, and he is already disgusted by this.
Someone who grasps the meaning of life can open the eyes of a person who has suicidal tendencies. The meaning of life is to strive toward a new life during our lives. Break through from darkness to the Light.
