Through the Cloud of Guilt
“This is easier to understand than to do, Yael” Devorah said to her colleague. “But you’ve been thru a great deal and already know the value of what I’m telling you.” Yael nodded, her long black hair flowing across her eyes. “I have done some terrible things, Devorah,” Yael said. Devorah smiled and touched her friend’s shoulder. “What you did, Yael, had to be done. As long as you believe guilt is justified in any way, in anyone, whatever they may have done, you will not look within, where you could choose differently and find your oneness with all that is. The end of guilt will never come as long as you believe there’s a reason for it. If guilt were real our at-one-ment with spirit would not be. The purpose of going within first and seeking the at-one-ment is to dispel illusions such as guilt, not to establish them as real and then forgive them.
“Not being merciful to yourself and allowing guilt to fester within you, you project it out, see guilt in others and are unmerciful to them. The moment, the moment, you realize guilt is an insane ego illusion, wholly unjustified and without reason, you will not fear to look upon the at-one-ment and accept it wholly. Look through the cloud of guilt that dims your vision, and look past darkness to the holy place where you can see the light. Nothing, no thing, can keep you from the light that is the truth of who you are and your real identity.
“Release from guilt as you would be released. There is no other way to look within and see the light of love, shining as steadily and surely as it has always shone.”
