Concerning suicide, I have felt suicidal many times in my life but attempted it only once and did not see it through to the end (obviously!) because a good friend must have felt something, a prompt, and rang me (there were also other practical concerns). I do believe that negative thoughts, despair and depression attract dark energies (spirits) who may then intensify such emotions. How much of one’s depression is in actual response to circumstances? Similarly, when we react to something or someone in anger we may tap into reserves of unconscious anger from experiences in our past. It is therefore important to be conscious and look at these emotions, to sense and understand that other emotions may have been triggered and that they are therefore an inappropriate response to the situation at hand.
Caine (David Carradine): “Without fear, one sees more clearly.”
If it is truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is not truthful and helpful, don't say it
If it is both truthful and helpful, wait for the right time.
“When you allow yourself your humanness with gratitude and openness, the emotional charge (which is another word for judgement) falls away from things like fear, upset, discomfort, shame and anger. And so these things no longer hold power over you, and that is when the extreme polarities, i.e. highs and lows, ups and downs, begin to fall away.” - Elizabeth Anne Hill.
