Suicide’s a request, not an invitation

Almost always in human experience the urge toward suicide signals an edge of a new level of consciousness. If you can kill the right thing —the old way of adaptation— and not injure yourself, a new energy-filled era will begin.

Suicide is never an invitation to be taken literally.

It’s your soul urging you to change.

Once you know this, you can harness the death urge to improve your life.

This urge isn’t pathological. It isn’t something to run from. In fact running from it is what makes it pathological.

Running from it is a fear-based response that perpetuates fear and self-loathing. You’ll be scared of your shadow and engender anxiety in your life. Every step taken away from your death urge will be a step backward, leading you to feel so small that you won’t be able to respect yourself, or see your worthiness.

Make no mistake: you may have fucked up, you may be idling, you may be lazy, you may be in a soul-crushing position at the moment… but above all of that, you are still worthy.

Included in that worthiness is the fact that you’re worthy of the rewards that the hard work of change will bring you. Repeat that at least 7 times to yourself.

You’re worthy of the rewards that the hard work of change will bring you. You’re worthy of the rewards that the hard work of change will bring you. You’re worthy of the rewards that the hard work of change will bring you. You’re worthy of the rewards that the hard work of change will bring you. You’re worthy of the rewards that the hard work of change will bring you. You’re worthy of the rewards that the hard work of change will bring you. You’re worthy of the rewards that the hard work of change will bring you.

The next time you get the urge to die, take a deep pause. Take a look at where you’re at. Are you unsatisfied with any part of your life? Are you unsatisfied with yourself? Have you been doing the same thing too long? Do you need a new challenge? Do you need a new hobby, or to resume an old one? Do you need new friends? How is love flowing through you?

If turning over these stones leads you to something that needs changing, then you’re not done, my friend. Keep going. Keep going, and know that you’re worthy of the brilliant rewards awaiting you.
