Question: What is the role of guilt? And what is the role of self-blame for personal wrongs committed? What about confession of sins?
Answer: The role of guilt belongs to the self-wrecking parts of one’s self that persist in unconsciously doing what that same self then decries it has done. Self-blame is the unconscious advocate of guilt. True confession of one’s sins (original Aramaic meant to “miss the mark”) can be a benefit to a belabored heart. The real change comes in the moment that we see what we are, not as we think back over what we’ve done.
The need to be whole, to know God’s love and forgiveness is something seeded into the soul that He places there. Our task is to cultivate the “earth” of ourselves, to do the weeding and watering, and ensure that the “pests” (like fear, doubt, over-indulgence of anything –including negative states and regrets) don’t get the upper hand. If we do our part, Truth, the Light… is unfailing in its duty of delivering us from our many dark (unenlightened) selves. What you need is new self-knowledge, and this kind of higher awareness begins with new and true ideas. Just take the first step towards what your heart of hearts longs for, and the Truth will see to it that you have all that you need the rest of the way.
With all things I can serve Thee,
In all things I can find Thee,
Through all things I can know Thee,
For all things I can love Thee.
