The ego has only two emotions – fear and guilt . Some philosophers have wondered what came first but in my opinion, this is a chicken and egg question . They are really the same and from them comes anger, hate, worry, impatience etc .
Our only real relationship is with God and this relationship is perverted by our misguided view of who and what God is . The montheistic religions teach that God is a separate entity, disconnected from us who judges and punishes us for our sins but at the same time, they teach HE is a loving God .
They don’t seem to worry about the obvious problem with this view which is why would a loving God, punish anyone and send people to Hell as they don’t live up to HIS expectations ( I described God as masculine to show up this error of who God is ) .
From this comes the underlying fear and guilt in the human psyche . We fear God because we are told God will punish us and feel guilt as we think he believes in guilt . This misguided view of God has caused all the problems in the World . God is not a separate being and we are always connected .
God is the whole Universe and has unconditional love for the whole of Creation . As we were created with the same qualities, we also possess unconditional love but is blocked out by our ego which sees God as a threat to its existence . We project out the ego’s guilt and fear of God onto the world and this has created our dysfunctional world .
We are joined with God and there is nothing to fear . We, and God, are Innocence and guilt does not exist apart from in our Mind . You have never sinned and are always safe .
