Q. How can I overcome suicidal thoughts?
A. Do you happen to know who wants to commit suicide, that is, who wants to kill whom? You should not mistake killing your body for killing yourself. Your body has done nothing wrong. If something wrong has been done, it is not your body but you that are to blame for it. Your body can’t do anything without your direction. Why do you impute your wrong doing to your innocent body? Furthermore, if you want to escape your current situation by committing suicide, how can you be sure that a worse situation is not waiting for you afterwards?
If you really want to commit suicide, try to realise who wants to commit suicide. Having a mind to kill yourself without knowing what you are is no other than being deluded by illusions.
