got guilt?

"Guilt, as experienced in Western culture,
is connected with hopelessness and discouragement
and is past-oriented.
Genuine remorse, however, is a healthy state of mind -
it is future-oriented,
connected with hope, and causes us to act, to change." 
- The Dalai Lama
the choice is ours to make

"as experienced in Western culture" i.e. the Judeo-Christian tradition? Dating a Catholic man who thought he shoulda been a priest because of birth order: Guilt-o-rama!! lol
