Video: Unload Your Guilt!


Guilt is one of the main rivers feeding into the great lake of depression. And that’s unfortunate if you’ve been raised Catholic or Jewish. Or are prone to OCD behaviors like extreme rumination of thoughts.

Soooooo ….. as usual, I have to come up with a visualization technique that allows myself to unload some of the guilt. This one, I think, helps. Except for the fact that I stole the rocks, and I feel guilty about that, and I don’t know how to get them back to the place where I found them without looking like a terrorist.

  1. Therese,
    Your willingness to be vulnerable and your honesty about where you are are heroic. To make that pretty picture human makes you so much more attractive as a fellow human being who is walking through the dis-ease we carry.
    Thank you

  2. I ‘ve read a similar story in the Tao. These manage to help me while I’m reading them or watching a video like this one but, then, BAM – their back.
    I self-talk my way out of some of my guilts but they never leave my brain. Poor brain … so overloaded. Good post …
