Hurting others is inescapable....No one gets through life without hurting others. None of us are able to live this life without making choices that bring confusion, upset, pain and even death to other beings. When we make choices which result in the suffering of others, and understand the results of our actions, a normal human reaction is feeling guilty. The emotion of guilt can be a pit of the stomach or aching heart or deep fear or sense of dread, a feeling of humiliation and being disconnected from what is healthy and harmonious.
Guilt is in the past......When we are suffering with feeling guilty, our thoughts are of the past. Only thoughts of actions, behaviors, consequences already completed can result in the pain of guilt.
What's the purpose of guilt? Guilt is rooted in empathy.
How can we escape guilt?
Speaking of Feelings
RETURNING TO THE MEMORY OF OUR BEHAVIORS WE DESPERATELY WANT TO BUT CANNOT CHANGE
