Guilt is one of the strongest emotions we carry inside, albeit often hidden, often subconscious, but doing a tremendous amount of damage to our ability to grow.
It shows up like this:
Maybe you're not having 'so many problems', I don't know. But we need to take full and complete stock of our lives every once in a while and see what's going on, then take full responsibility for it.
If you want to move forward in your life, that little, dark, hidden voice grips and controls your EVERY MOVE.
We need to start from the beginning here, to untangle where that voice comes from, so that we can see it is the exact antithesis of God as we would know it.
God is Love. That deep, concerned and caring, blanket of loving feeling that surrounds you.
Can you find it around you now?
It is there for you.
It loves you.
It wants only the highest and the best for you.

But what do we feel instead of this loving experience of God when we are full of guilt?
We get a steady, streaming flow of self-chastisement that continually puts us down, leaving us feeling always less than, lacking, and without any help available to us to make it all better.
This needs to stop, obviously. And the best way for that to happen is to pay attention to where and when that voice comes up.
There is always a way out, as A Course in Miracles promises, and you are not expected to find that way out yourself.
Why would the creator of the problem be the same as the solution provider? It's not.
We can call on something higher than ourselves to heal and release those errors within ourselves that we do not want anymore.
And the only real error here is not recognizing who we truly are.
The voice of guilt is what needs to be eradicated, and the Holy Spirit is there to help us do that.
That little voice inside that chastises either you or others (it's all the same) always seeks to attack. And it is never sane.
It will continue, over and over and over again, to find ways to attack, and incessantly continue its vengeance against you or another.
But there is a way out of this, and that is to:
OK, I hope this helps!
