Satipatthana Sutta, Third Foundation: Division Through Shame
2011-04-26 Satipatthana Sutta, Third Foundation: Division Through Shame 59:40
Rodney Smith
While we may have guilt over an incident or a series of mishaps, shame is the accompanying attitude about oneself and can therefore be far more disruptive. Life becomes an uphill battle against our destructive inward narrative. Its variations go from feeling lesser and smaller than to being an obstacle and ultimately better off not existing. Confronting our conclusion around shame is taking on our emotional posture to life itself.
