According to A Course in Miracles, the cause of all our suffering, including the belief in separation, comes from unconscious guilt.

But what does the unconscious guilt come from, you ask?

It comes from perpetuating the thoughts of “otherness.”

These are thoughts of “us” and “them”, of “better than” and “less than”. I don’t know where the first thought of otherness came from, or why it was so attractive, but I do know that it’s been a wild and wooly ride ever since!

The ego thought system is like a virus in the mind. It has no power of its own, but as Stevie Wonder’s great song “Superstition” says, when you believe in things that you don’t understand, then you suffer.

We believe in separation but we don’t understand it, and it is the cause of much suffering.

There are so many thoughts of separation showing up all around us every day that sometimes we barely recognize them. That we’ve become inured to them is reason enough that some would feel guilty. That we perpetuate them is another reason to feel guilty.

Unconscious guilt = fear.

Worry is an expression of fear.

Occasionally, someone who doesn’t know me well will say something like, “Should we be worried about … ?” or “Are you worried about …?”

I find that their worry is often a surprise to me. It’s not something that I would worry about. Plus, I’ve found that worrying works against me and isn’t helpful to me, so I mostly choose to disengage from it if I find it enters my mind.

Now, it’s not that I have no worries at all. I can tell when I feel irritated by something that there’s a fearful thought, perhaps a worry, that’s being brought to the surface for healing.

Worry is an effect.
Fear is an effect.

It comes from valuing the thoughts of separation rather than rooting them out – that’s what causes the “unconscious guilt.”

I’ve always felt the guilt that accompanies attack thoughts.

Am I the only one?
I don’t think so – I think the guilt is fairly conscious for a lot of us, we’ve just learned to drown it out or deny it.

Fortunately, the Higher Holy Spirit Self will undo all the consequences of our wrong decision if we allow it. And that’s a priceless benefit that we can all take advantage of at no extra charge! Let’s relieve ourselves of ALL unconscious guilt by handing it over to the HHSS for healing!
