Guilt & Self-Punishment

“First of all, you can’t do it wrong (i.e. grow spiritually). That is something that is very difficult for humankind to accept because people are used to doing what they term to be mistakes or having regrets or wishing they could do something over or differently. But you have to get it through your heads that you can’t make a mistake. Because you are doing what you came to do, it ultimately has to work for your highest good and for the highest purpose with which you began it.

               When one finds oneself in a situation where one is being accused or reprimanded or unjustly chastised for something, that usually has a basis in a sense of guilt over something from which they never freed themselves. To recognize the innocence of the individual, one must go to the source. Even though the source is unknown, go to the source of the original guilt and affirm, ‘I did what I thought was right at the time and I have nothing to regret.’ That usually, affirmed over and over until after a little bit, depending on how ardently you affirm it, releases the tendency to seek punishment of some sort.”
