Remorse

I recently broke one of my precepts and have been coming to terms with that as well as reaffirming that the only way out of this mess is to continue the practice and one day abandon such unskillful behavior once and for all. The talk by Ajahn Thanissaro below has proved immensely helpful in terms of framing remorse not as a strength but as a weakness. One can’t ameliorate wrong done simply because one feels bad about it. Furthermore, feeling bad doesn’t help us to give up the behavior in the future — in fact, it may only make it more likely. Wishing you all well.
