MKMMA Week 22- “Can Guilt be used Positively”

This post I am following up on my previous one, regarding fear, by examining another often used negative emotion- “Guilt”- if and/or how it can be used as a positive instrument in our journey of self fulfillment.

Full Definition of GUILT

1
:  the fact of having committed a breach of conduct especially violating law and involving a penalty; broadly :  guilty conduct
2
a :  the state of one who has committed an offense especially consciously

b :  feelings of culpability especially for imagined offenses or from a sense of inadequacy :  self-reproach

3
:  a feeling of culpability for offenses
This definition, from the Merriams Dictionary, I found interesting especially (b) because being an observer of oneself and keying in to when we feel guilty over things, that have no merit and eliminating those emotions or redirecting them could be most beneficial.
Often, I know we can feel guilty over not fulfilling the dreams and wishes of other people in our lives, as opposed to knowing what we want in life as our Definite Major Purpose.  However, those of us undergoing the stretch run of our MKMMA course should no longer fall under that previous scenario.
That leaves the one thing, we should feel guilty about and then channel that guilt positively, to change our activities or nonactions, and that is not following the path of activities that will lead to achieving one’s Definite Major Purpose in life.  The key is to not let the guilt consume and distract us further from the path of achievement, instead feel the feeling, forgive oneself and then rectify the situation by focusing on the plan of action that is necessary.
So feeling guilty can be positive and it as noted on the MKMMA webcasts, does show that one feels bad and has a conscious about not doing what they know in their hear, they should be doing.
Forgiveness of oneself, and then the “Law of Substitution” to replace that thought with affirmations of one’s plan will put one on the right path.
Next up, “Unworthiness”!  Until next time, lets all make it happen and “Do It Now”!
