shame, regret means you are giving your consciousness and your life force away. Guilt sucks or siphons the life force out of you, decreasing your self-image, self-esteem, passion and life force. Guilt and self-punishment or flagellation serves no constructive or spiritual purpose whatsoever.
Dark Ones encourage guilt punishment and shame because it’s easier to control and manipulate guilty people. Honoring dark truths, obligations or rules manufactured for you to please Dark One’s have NO spiritual value or wisdom at all. Guilt creates the feeling that you are wrong and worthless and that is not true.
Compassion for you is, owning what you did or what was done to you. Compassion for you, knows when and if the same situation arises your response will be one of compassion, you will be able to perceive the larger picture and be compassionate. Focus on all the thoughts and things you think and do that you are proud of, that have worked for you and others.
