Why would a soul choose Self-destruction?
SELF-DESTRUCTORS SABOTAGE THEMSELVES IN MANY OTHER WAYS THAN ACTUALLY PULLING THE TRIGGER. OFTEN THEY HAVE CONTINUOUSLY POOR HEALTH. THEY DELIBERATELY MAKE THEMSELVES UNATTRACTIVE AND AT TIMES OBNOXIOUS. THEY SHOW UP LATE FOR IMPORTANT APPOINTMENTS, NEVER WITH A GOOD REASON, AND ARE COMPLETELY SHATTERED WHEN THE OTHER PERSON REACTS UNFAVORABLY TO THIS. SELF-DESTRUCTORS WILL OFTEN RUIN PERFECTLY HARMONIOUS RELATIONSHIPS WITH COOL DELIBERATION ON A SUBLIMINAL LEVEL. THIS CAN BE READILY DIFFERENTIATED FROM REJECTION, THOUGH.
How could this synthesis be used in psychotherapy?
WE WOULD SAY GO AHEAD AND TAMPER. YOU CAN DO [no] HARM, FOR IF THEY CANNOT LOOK AT IT, THEY WILL JUST GO ON THEIR MERRY WAY. FOR THOSE WE KNOW AS SELF-DESTRUCTORS, WE WOULD RECOMMEND A VERY RADICAL APPROACH: REGRESSION HYPNOSIS IF THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM DOES NOT INCLUDE THE POSSIBILITY OF REINCARNATION. THE LATTER WILL STILL OFTEN BE SUCCESSFUL, AS THE MEMORIES ARE STILL BURIED THERE, AND IN THE TRANCE CAN OVERRIDE THE BELIEF SYSTEM. HOWEVER, THESE SOULS ARE EXPERTS AT REJECTING SOLUTIONS TO THEIR PROBLEMS. IT STILL REMAINS THAT YOU CANNOT FORCE ONE TO CHANGE HIS OVERLEAVES, BUT IF YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL, IT WILL SIMPLY MEAN THAT ONE WAS READY TO SEEK THE CHANGE.
Is Self-destruction chosen in guilt or is it actually karmic?
IS NOT CHOSEN OUT OF GUILT BUT OUT OF EXPEDIENCY. GUILT IS A PHENOMENON OF THE PHYSICAL PLANE. YOU FEEL THE GUILT ONLY WHEN YOU ARE INCARNATE.
Why pay debts like that? Is this needed for their goal? Is this the fastest way?
PRIMARILY AS LEARNING EXPERIENCES. OFTEN THEY COMPLETE MONADS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE. KNOWING YOUR INTERNAL DEFINITIONS OF “GUILT”, WE WOULD PREFER THAT YOU THINK OF THIS NATURAL GUILT AS ACQUIRED SENSIBILITY.
Physical guilt versus natural guilt (no morality — bastardized it — the soul doesn’t feel guilt — not guilt but debt? Should this be the only type of guilt?
IDEALLY YES, OF COURSE, IF YOU FOLLOW OUR ADVICE IN NOT DOING THAT WHICH INTUITIVELY FEELS WRONG, THEN WHY SHOULD YOU FEEL ANY GUILT? GUILT IMPLIES THAT YOU DID SOMETHING INTUITIVELY WRONG.
Is expediency to the astral plane as guilt is to the physical plane?
YES, IT IS.
Why do we have to pay our debts?
YES, “RESPONSIBILITY” IS PERHAPS AS GOOD A WORD AS ANY.
