Have you ever thought that GUILT is just a tool the Universe uses to show us right from wrong.

That's it just a tool.

That there's no reason to beat yourself up or turn to self abuse such as overeating, drugs, smoking, drinking to excess to try and drown the guilt....

You don't have to FEEL guilty for feeling guilt.

You just THANK the Universe for showing you right from wrong and

then let the LOVE of the UNIVERSE sooth your soul.

Just a late night thought I had, I experienced and now have a soothed soul :):):)

    What a great thought and a great lesson I have learned from it.

    I have often felt guilty and held on to the guilty feeling - thinking that I deserved the negative emotion as punishment for doing wrong.

    If guilt is only used as a tool to teach me how better to choose going forward, then guilt is a great tool and something that I will be thankful for and learn from.

    Thank you so much for sharing!!

    That is a great late night thought and so true! Guilt is hard and something we have to deal with but like you said, we don't have to feel guilty for feeling guilt!

    There's guilt and then there's toxic guilt. I no longer indulge in toxic guilt and just learn life lessons from the guilt.

    I have long believed that guilt is a waste of emotion. In learning that there is no 'right', there is no 'wrong', I have come to accept that AWARENESS simply clears the fog of excess to reveal what works, or does not.

    There is no room for guilt in the simple discovery of what works :-).

    Love you so, WW! Love your insight!! Keep keepin' it REAL, Baby!

    We are Divine beings created by a thought from God/or the Universal Light... anything else that we add to it/us is junk- trash, tarnish...then we hold the junk tight and carry it around with us!
    You can set down the trash anytime you want. Ego is our wants to do the wrongs and then chant about them until you become burden with the load....or you set it down. And release it. -Gurumaa-Ashram (roughly explained by Firestar) She is my light!

    I think that I tend to take guilt, a very helpful emotion, and turn it into something it shouldn't be, which is shame. Guilt tells you, you are not on target and need to change. Shame tells you that you are bad, and unworthy. Used properly guilt is a very necessary emotion for our personal morality.

    I think guilt is something most of us tend to overindulge in. Like fine chocolate, a bit of guilt is good for you - it allows you to grow as a person. But, also like chocolate, too much guilt is bad for you if you overindulge and wallow in it. What usually works for me, is thinking... what can I do to fix the situation and/or make sure it doesn't happen in the future?
