Today's lesson is about guilt! It can be so crippling and it is something I do my best to avoid. I spent many years playing the guilty game. I was guilty of everything! No more...nope, not me.

I am who I am, who I am.

I am never one to intentionally hurt another...does it happen sometimes. I'm sure it does. But through my Surrender work, I have learned that the past is the past. Why spend anytime in guilt about can't be changed. This has been a huge lesson for live within the moment. Not in the future. Not in the past. But alive and kicken in the present moment of now.

What a joy and relief it is!

Here is a reference about guilt taken from " A Course in Miracles"

Read more about it :A Course in Miracles How It Came - What It Is - What It Says
T-13.X.4. When you maintain that you are guilty but the source of your guilt lies in the past, you are not looking inward. 2 The past is not in you. 3 Your weird associations to it have no meaning in the present. 4 Yet you let them stand between you and your brothers, with whom you find no real relationships at all. 5 Can you expect to use your brothers as a means to "solve" the past, and still to see them as they really are? 6 Salvation is not found by those who use their brothers to resolve problems that are not there. 7 You wanted not salvation in the past. 8 Would you impose your idle wishes on the present, and hope to find salvation now?

T-13.X.5. Determine, then, to be not as you were. 2 Use no relationship to hold you to the past, but with each one each day be born again. 3 A minute, even less, will be enough to free you from the past, and give your mind in peace over to the Atonement. 4 When everyone is welcome to you as you would have yourself be welcome to your Father, you will see no guilt in you. 5 For you will have accepted the Atonement, which shone within you all the while you dreamed of guilt, and would not look within and see it.

T-13.X.6. As long as you believe that guilt is justified in any way, in anyone, whatever he may do, you will not look within, where you would always find Atonement. 2 The end of guilt will never come as long as you believe there is a reason for it. 3 For you must learn that guilt is always totally insane, and has no reason. 4 The Holy Spirit seeks not to dispel reality. 5 If guilt were real, Atonement would not be. 6 The purpose of Atonement is to dispel illusions, not to establish them as real and then forgive them.

T-13.I.1. Earlier, I said that the Holy Spirit shares the goal of all good teachers, whose ultimate aim is to make themselves unnecessary by teaching their pupils all they know. 2 The Holy Spirit wants only this, for sharing the Father's Love for His Son, He seeks to remove all guilt from his mind that he may remember his Father in peace. 3 Peace and guilt are antithetical, and the Father can be remembered only in peace. 4 Love and guilt cannot coexist, and to accept one is to deny the other. 5 Guilt hides Christ from your sight, for it is the denial of the blamelessness of God's Son
