That’s what the mind tells you, but you do not remember accurately the
circumstance at that time, or just think you do?
Did you do the best possible under the circumstances at that time?
That’s all you can do - the best possible under the circumstances of the
If you do that, every moment, there will never be any regrets.

Until you start to realise that you are not your system, you will keep
identifying with the lesser intelligent part of yourself.
Bodies contract; minds go/live in turmoil; emotions get/are disturbed.
Who knows that? The body/mind/emotion? No, there is something else.
Until you start to at least make space for the possibility that you have
another part of yourself, that is not disturbed by these things, you will
continue to be in turmoil.

I used to have migraines that were not only painful, but rendered me

is there anything you can do about it in this moment?
If so, do it; if not, disconnect, and be in the moment, just as it is.
