Hello, brothers.
What troubles me is that the Master emphasizes that one must feel remorse, beg, and even cry for forgiveness. Very few are the times when I've felt the need to cry from remorse of a mistake, yet the Master said that one needs to suffer and cry for each defect we want eliminated.
I think I've comprehended some defects, where they come from, what feeds them, etc., and I understand why its desire is wrong, but I often find myself unable to feel remorse, at least to the degree that Master Samael speaks about. If I can't repent, fall on my knees and cry, does it mean that I do not repent enough, I do not feel enough remorse to annihilate such defect?

The ego does not feel remorse. Since we are asleep and enveloped in our many defects, most of us don't even know what remorse is.

As explained in the lecture, remorse is a quality of the Being that can be felt in the free consciousness. When you are awakened, you can experience what remorse truly is. As long as we are asleep, we cannot experience or understand remorse.

So, awaken! If you work seriously to liberate yourself from your defects, you will definitely experience remorse.

So, it IS indeed possible to eliminate defects without feeling that level of remorse? Otherwise, it would be paradoxical: you need remorse to eliminate defects, but you need to eliminate defects to feel remorse.

Real remorse is the emotion of the consciousness when liberated from the cause of its suffering. It sees the cage it has escaped and feels, "Never again!" And truly, it will not easily commit the same mistake.

I realize this thread is old, but reading the Pistis Sophia, the master says, and I quote
supreme repentance-necessary in order to disintegrate any defect-demands cries and remorse.
It is not possible to disintegrate psychic aggregates without tears, repentance, and supreme pain.

How can one feel this kind of remorse, to throw one self to the ground in tears, say, over a defect that enjoys eating popcorn? Does the severity of the defect and its karma correspond to the amount of remorse needed to comprehend this defect?
