Woah! Dude! You give up so fast, you may not come back as anything close to your ideal! Use your effort and time to work towards that ideal in this lifetime. You want to come back as a lowly animal, making it more difficult to advance? Or be born again as less than an animal! That's if you are to come back. If you should take what strikes me as the lazy way out, do not harm others in your haste. Not a wise path...suicide is ignorance and selfeshness. Clean up your life first, do not have others do it after you're gone. And if your life means so little to you, then dedicate yourself to helping others. Shake it off. Climb a mountain, take up surfing, quit your day job, watch a comedy act do something different! Find better light up there!

: At last,

: At last I have what I've found what I've been searching for all these years. Today I would like to share with you some of my feelings and thoughts. In this life, all I could find was the pain, the suffering that resides inside of me for so long, today I would like to share part of what is most concerns me. All these times, I have often think of death (suicide) thinking of how I would end this life as soon as possible, because I find no contentment, no joy in this life. I had so many bad feelings and thoughts about my life, and don't know who I should talk to or share with, so I bore it painfully and secretly. All the time, I only feel pain, loneliness, and sadness, frustrated, and desperated to live another day, I am so desperated that only death would ease my mind. I can no longer feel the joy, the light of this world, I don't know what I should do, I wanted it so much that a peace and a quiet life would suits me better. I often think that if I die now, in the afterlife, I would reincarnate and becomes a little monk, growing up in a monastery, a temple or wherever those monks lived. I yearn for a quiet, neat and beautiful pagoda or temple, where there is Buddha preaching and a life of vegeterian, where there is no noise, where there is birds chirping, sunshine all the time, and I would hear the sound of tapping the bell, where I would get away from society and anything that deals with pain and suffering. There, I would find my true contentment, and hoping to become an Enlightment, find a way to get out of death, pain, sickness, old and everything that caused human to reborn again in this world. Please give me some advice, I am desperate and if only I got a strong will to make up my mind now and lead a life as a monk.

: Best wish,
