Anything other than that is “old paradigm” thinking.
I wouldn't call Buddha, Jesus, Krishna, and astral travelers old paradigm.
I'm sure it's like any other action and depends a lot of motivation and that person's vibration. One example I can think of is the suicide by fasting that Jain monks can perform when they can no longer physically keep their vows. A rigid type of thinking perhaps, but I can't really fault it given that these vows are sacred to them.
There's another example of Buddha in a past life recalled killing himself in order to stop another being from inheriting bad karma. And this was an example of a noble action.
But if your vibration is low in this world, when you kill yourself I would doubt it gets higher. You're probably initially in a pretty bad spot. The last thing you want to do when you're full of fear or grief is leave your body because the environment you attract will be horrid.
Just my 2 cents from reading astral projection books among others.
