We are all going to leave our body vessel and the Earth Realm eventually, at some point. That is certain.
There are 2 ways to go;
either something else will take your life. diseases, someone else taking your life, the elements of the earth breaking your body down at old age.
or you can just do it yourself.
i feel thats the most honorable way to leave this place. You take the personal decision yourself and claim your own body, and you decide when you “shut off”. that is true self-autonomy.
it’s highly cultural. In my native culture it is considered “honorable” to be brought down by an external cause, all the more if one continues to try and discharge their duties.
Self termination is still possible in such a structure, but doing it while retaining honor is complicated.
