Eckhart’s simple teachings have helped people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists in transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violence on our planet.

Suicide

Addressing the Elephant on the Bridge

I’m not going to tell you I agree with this article only because I haven’t read it. I don’t agree with the romanticized b^llsh!t that most people try to sell others about keeping a person alive because they were meant to live. I think that’s the most hypocritical cr@p I ever heard like the rationalization that a tumor like piece of flesh inside of a woman was meant to be a living human being and has rights inside a woman’s body. Whatever you believe I am not going to try to change it and foist my idea of reality on to you.

This is a list about suicide. I think it’s important to read and converse about the subject. I think it’s more important to not overrule people who feel suicidal and their ideas and why they feel the way they do. Death is not evil. Neither is wanting to die. A suicidal person’s feelings and thoughts and ideas are their own. As a person who has tried to commit suicide and has felt suicidal often I encourage you to stop and listen and not feel obligated to put someone down when they feel that way.

Stay: The Social Contagion of Suicide and How to Preempt It

Jennifer Michael Hecht – Stay: A History of Suicide and the Philosophies Against It  Another person writes a book about suicide. Maybe the only saving grace of this book (I haven’t read it nor even the whole article,) is the discussion of moralizing suicide in societies organizations.

Intentional Peer Support

Intentional Peer Support is a way of thinking about and inviting powerfully transformative relationships among people.

It is not about developing more effective services, but rather about creating dialogues that have influence on all of our understandings, conversations, and relationships.” – Shery Mead, Founder of IPS
