81 On Guilt

Beloved Dharia,

Guilt is a phenomenon that occurs when unnatural behaviour is taking place.
Usually, the guilt is caused by unnatural behaviour and is intended to lead you to more unnatural behaviour.

When you are acting naturally, there is no guilt.

When guilt arises, realize what you are doing that is not natural; be careful that your conditioning does not lead you through guilt into a spiral of increasingly unnatural behaviour.

Guilt is useful, because it indicates that you are already being driven by your conditionings to unnatural behaviour.
But then you must be careful that you move away from condition behaviour, not towards deeper conditionings.
