Let Go of Anger and Guilt
Guest Post by Dick Warn
The meaning behind the phase “born in sin” is born in ignorance. We all arrive without a clue. And, as Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Christian Science Church said, “Error is belief without understanding.”
We don’t know how little we know until we get hit with something painful. All painful situations point to things we don’t understand. If our parents were wise, warm and loving, then our start in life had several advantages. However, mistakes, mishaps, and pain are woven into the very fabric of our lives.
Fred Van Amburgh said, “There is no fool like the fool who will continue to kick the rubbish of his mistakes along the path ahead of him, and then be compelled to stumble over these mistakes a second time.”
That was me. I was very good at finding fault, feeling guilty, and hating myself for the stupid things I had done. Without knowing what I was doing I was carrying past errors with me.
Denis Waitley, American peak performance-expert, said, “Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.”
We can find every answer we need, once we find the courage and strength to let go of anger and guilt. Clear minds see things that clouded minds miss.
