Everything is memory. What we do is based on memory, what we think is based on memory, what we say in based on memory – as all living and behavior in this world is developed, this is done through our experiences in life which then create the memories that then make up the people we are. But are our memories simply here as points we can access for reference or do memories become obsessive to the point where they control and limit us from really living? This is where the word guilt comes in a to my surprise it is a word that in a way everybody is really living. What is guilt?
1) the state of having committed and offense
2) remorse caused by feeling responsible for some offense
So here we get into the word offense as it plays a consistent key role within the guilt point. It is important to expand our definition and understanding of ‘offense’ so that it extends to any and all forms of harm that can possibly be caused. It is no secret that no one is perfect and that everyone is making mistakes and so we are virtually offending all the time, and whether we are offending ourselves or others makes no difference. The problem is that these become our memories as we tend to judge ourselves within moments of guilt within the belief that the emotional experience is real, and we become extremely trapped in guilt. I have seen it become so engrained that it is almost difficult for some to believe that they can be ‘good people’ and live to their true and full potential, that is what the belief that we cannot change is based in. Guilt is used as a very clever feeling trap to keep us from ever really improving. There is no point in accepting and allowing the experience of guilt, because even if you have the best intentions in the world to do something about it, you are still operating from a starting point of guilt and so will be operating from a point of elf limitation of the self belief that you cannot really make a difference as you are ‘not good enough/a bad person’. There is also a component of self interest here where the mind is able to use this self-belief to be able to continue to keep getting the energetic experiences it wants, and that way the mind as memories of self limitation stays alive, and no change is possible.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to trap myself and completely limit myself from living to my true potential and truly making a difference in this world by enslaving myself to guilt and mistakes I have made in the past, and used such mistakes as the reasoning/justification to still try and continue to make mistakes by convincing myself that I am ‘bad’ and that I can actually never do what is best for all and just remain in an ineffective struggle to help others, and sabotaging myself by not helping within the context of what I can self honestly do at the current moment in time as it is practical within the bigger picture of life which take into consideration what is best for all life equally
I forgive myself that I’ve accepted and allowed myself to use the guilt of the mistakes I’ve made in the past as a way of discouraging myself from really making a difference in this world as I see realize and understand that the experience of making such mistakes was not understood as I convinced myself that was ‘doing something right’ and then when things didn’t go right/go according to plan/what I thought the outcome would be, experienced massive guilt because I felt responsible for making a mistake and hurting another
I commit myself to live the self-expression of self-support in standing consistent throughout my process in doing what I am able to practically and self honestly to support myself and others in this world as this is the only way to practically wash away any experience of guilt by actually making the most out of the opportunities I have to make this world a better place – thus I commit myself to persist and never give up in this pursuit to make this world a better place and to take on every possible opportunity to do so. I forgive myself that I’ve accepted and allowed myself to limit my ability to make a difference in this world by only defining it as acts and not as a beingness and to, within this, make misguided efforts to make a difference in this world by helping others which then inevitably always end up in the experience of guilt where I feel like have ‘tried and failed’ or ‘I did not do enough’ when in fact no trying and failing exists in reality when you are real and self honestly doing everything you can do make a difference in this world, then no ‘trying and failing can ever exist because then there is only doing and persistence, creativity and fluidity in doing.
