The realization that is needed for us to experience guilt and innocence as one, can be found by realizing that a discordant note in music is not discordant in and of itself, but rather becomes discordant if we prolong its tone beyond its place as a useful contribution to a musical composition. In other words, in the moment a note is played, it serves a useful purpose. It is only when we hold onto it, that it becomes a musical discordance. So too with mistakes, we may have made in the past. If we look back at them as the teachers that shape the mastery of today, they have served their purpose. If we hold onto them with guilt and regret, they become a discordant interference with the evolving song of the self of today.
