Regrets

Dark Side

Dark Side

You are not the Sun,
with endless light
to see infinity

You are the Moon,
with the dark side of
unknowing poking at you.

I have been thinking about regrets lately and how we assume we know what the outcome would have been had we chosen another path or action.

In this way, we believe we are the Sun (or God) with all-knowing vision.

When we regret an action, we believe we know better how the outcome would have manifested, had we chosen differently. But who is to know this?

We are not God nor are we the Sun with the light to see infinity.

We are the Moon, with the dark side of un-knowingness as part of our Being.

We never know how an untaken path may have manifested.

We may BELIEVE it would have turned out better or for the best and regret not taking it.

But the regret only arises because we have blanketed unknowing with a belief in something otherwise- our fantasy of the outcome.
