High on the list of ego’s most dubious achievements: Feelings of guilt. A belief in hell. The idea that heaven is an achievement.
Ego is heavily invested in the past. Its highest yielding dividend stock? Guilt.
Guilt is an attack on the self by the self. It splits us.
A mistake I learn from is not a mistake. I wouldn’t know that anger is a derangement and regret a waste of energy unless I’ve laid with both of them, known them under the covers. There are other ways to learn but none as terrifically good as mistakes.
Hurry. Worry. Memory. These are big weeds.
