Explanation of Images: What motivates you to do what you do? Are we trying to prove something? Guilt is very powerful and we don’t pay it much mind. In truth we are magnificent, invulnerable, gloriously unique expressions. Guilt challenges that. Guilt will tell that there is a chink in the armor. Guilt isn’t real, it’s a temptation to indulge in lack and loss. It’s like sin. We make errors of ignorance, but that doesn’t make us bad, deserving of punishment. Guilt is the temptation to believe that we injured God and really need to watch out for the consequences. Our brothers and sisters are really like ‘canaries in a coal mine’; they tell us how much we have invested in guilt and sin. We need others to do what is ours to do. We need to bond and co-create with others. Guilt makes this impossible. When we know that others do not deserve punishment, we release ourselves from the commitment to revenge, retaliation and getting even. Giving up guilt is necessary to work with others.
