#19, "Guilt"


          

What about these notion? that guilt, fundamentally,is self-betrayal? or Alan Watts' idea that freedom from guilt is the Western form of Eastern spiritual liberation?

I've thought, re:Watts, that if, a la Buddhism, there is no self, since all is sanyatta or emptiness., then there can be no self-betrayal, the self being an illusion. If one really understands that, radically, then we have freedom from guilt and maybe even enlightenment.

Some pre-Thansgiving thoughts.
