A sense of guilt is one of the most powerful traps used by the ego to keep
us glued to the old, to fear and to suffering. A sense of guilt arises when
we judge ourselves and others: it is the direct and inevitable consequence
of judgment.
We are the most implacable judges of ourselves, we judge continuously and,
in addition, we project onto ourselves what we believe to be the opinions
of others. Judgment always brings with it a sense of guilt.
