Why not euthanasia?

QUESTION: Masters I don’t understand why humans allow people to suffer when they have a terminal illness. Is there any reason that we should not allow assisted suicide everywhere? I do not see a point in keeping people alive when they want to transition and their quality of life is not good. ~Kathy, USA

ANSWER: You are existing on a planet of dual energies, both negative and positive. Souls come to the surface to experience negativity wrapped around life lessons to see if they realize they have the freedom of choice to change the direction in which their life appears to be going.

The main forces impacting daily life are determined by the ego judgment of society. Depending upon where you have chosen to physically settle, the laws (belief systems) vary. Society may choose to tell you what you can do with your body, or it may leave it completely up to you. The decision to cease the viability of your body may be your choice or mandated by that society.

A spiritual person understands that both the length of their life and the lessons they undertook are in their hands. That would mean they can stop a lesson by withdrawing from it at any time. In most cases this would be by returning Home, or ending that particular physical life so that another may be instigated. The general technique is assisted or self-employed suicide.

Many areas have laws against suicide, mostly stemming from religious beliefs. At one time religions proclaimed suicide to be a sin because you were acting as God by determining the extent of life. Some religions still teach that belief. In ages past, people in authority did not want any of their work forces to be able to take away property and slave labor. Neither of these practices gave any consideration to a soul’s possibly having freedom of choice.

This issue and all other things that encompass one’s life lessons take place in the duality so that one may make their own decisions concerning how and what they seek to understand. Spiritually, there is nothing that affirms or denies a soul’s right to commit suicide. Practically, based on societal laws, there might be: that is when the life lesson brings up freedom of choice and working with situations chosen before incarnating. The choice is always the individual’s to make.
