Feeling guilty? – Forgive yourself

We feel sometimes a guilt for no reasonable reason but the slight guilt persists and it becomes almost impossible to get rid off it. No music, no gossip, no long drive, no prayer works. It becomes hard to escape from that feeling. Mostly this is that kind of guilt which is unnoticed by the person for him we are feeling and in the most cases it is not reasonable, still it hovers over mind.

Is it really necessary to feel such guilt? At some point of time it is good to feel the guilt, it is humanoid thing. It is bad to feel such guilt very often and being in thoughts of that not-so-worth guilt. After all, guilt is worth giving time.


What I am thinking is if we don’t forgive ourselves, how can we be in position to forgive someone else? Forgiveness starts from self.

Life is worth living. Every moment passing has options, it is upon us what to choose. Choices make life. If you choose to be happy, you have to be absolutely crystal clear about yourself. No burdens, no fears, no stresses. Accept or not, guilt is a burden.


In the holy book of the Hindus, the Bhagvad Gita, in chapter 10 verses4-5 the god tells:

“Intelligence, knowledge, freedom from doubt and delusion, forgiveness, truthfulness, control of the senses, control of the mind, happiness and distress, birth, death, fear, fearlessness, nonviolence, equanimity, satisfaction, austerity, charity, fame and infamy — all these various qualities of living beings are created by Me alone.”

The god has signalled that forgiveness leads to him as he has created it. He has created forgiveness, not guilt. There is no point in feeling guilty all the time.

In the holy Bible, in 1 John 1:9, it is said that :

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

The god is ready to forgive if the sins are admitted before him. God is ready to instantly forgive us as god is the positive energy driving the whole universe, unforgiveness is negative.

Umm, love, care, hurt, feel, forgive yourself and ultimately rest in peace.


“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

Jesus Christ,Gospel of Luke 23:34
