The main intent of this book is for suicide prevention. It's story about my brother who committed suicide when he was sixteen and an assortment of suicides and attempts while working in the mental health system. One area of suicide prevention that is often overlooked is what happens to a suicidal person, if there was such a thing as an afterlife. Part of my story entails that and just trying to understand the impulses of suicide. What thoughts go into creating the impulses of a suicide, and how it affects those left behind.
I thought the book was wonderful, with such great insights. A lot of what you said was very thought provoking
I believe that we all need to be more spiritually connected. I think that this is what is wrong with a lot of society today. People are floundering and not understanding the purpose of LIFE. So many people are stuck in the materialism, frustration and commercialism of life and therefore - are just sad. I get stuck in that tailspin on occasion myself.
So whether that comes from Church, God, Jesus Christ, or a Seer - you know that you are part of a bigger picture. I truly believe that what we do in this life is just to set the stage for our next eternal life. I especially appreciate your thoughts on the parallell of our current life and our afterlife and our need to accept and love ourselves.
