Suicide an outcome of Situational Pressures and Depression of Mind

Suicide an outcome of Situational Pressures and Depression of Mind.

Probe will tell us the reason of the death of our brave colleague DK Ravi, whether it was suicide or a murder, but it has shaken up all of us in the service. We pray God to rest the Soul in peace.

With the growth of economy and money tree with the Government, the expectations from the people, politicians and family are increasing day by day. An officer has to balance these pressure groups, to perform and to maintain fitness of mind and body. The disturbed balance, compel us for opting for medicine, alcohol, yoga-meditation or in rare cases to commit suicide.

Suicide is considered an act of a coward. How could a person taking up wrong doors with toughness can kill himself? However, to kill oneself need lot of courage and mostly an act executed out of negative thinking, depression or pressure of a situation. 

A son commits suicide if there is continuous pressure and expectations for better academic results or career progress from the father or mother and he/she is not able to perform. A girl or boy commits suicide if not been able to marry the likes one. A husband of quarreling wife can commit suicide with an intention of punishing the wife. A wife can commit suicide if not pulling on well with the pressure of in-laws or husband. Sometimes infertility and love for husband together motivate her for the act to open a way for a new comer. Case to case, the reasons may vary but it is surely an outcome of the situational pressure over the mind weather real or imagined. A tired mind kills oneself.

And why depression? It is absence of joy. Expectations reduce joy, whether our own expectations or expectations from the pressure groups on our life.

We are the rider of our mind. Mind gives us options and arguments in favour of each option. But when mind rides over us, our decisions may go wrong. 

Life is light and death is darkness. Life is a war of survival. Each life fights with external attacks of diseases in body or pressure over mind. The smart sailor live long and the aggressive fighter get destroyed, therefore our life line varies for each individual. But during the journey, if one kills oneself, it is a height of self centered negative thinking process. The family, friends, society are there for releasing such pressures. The weekends, casual and earn leaves are means to relax and come out of pressing thoughts of negativity.

We are Guru, not Laghu (small) the part of the Universal Soul, the God, the Brahman. If the situation or thinking process compelling you to opt for such act, leave the place, people and situations immediately. There are multiple choices available to live the life with bliss, peace and joy. Not to commit suicide, but to live long in this land of divinity. If unsatisfied, look at others who have less than you.

"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." Groucho Marx
