Think about something you regret doing. If you could go back in time, would you do differently? You would probably answer ‘yes’. But could you do differently? It's not possible to travel back in time with this improved future knowledge and make a more educated decision. The insight that a poor choice has been made always comes afterwards. Yet people insist that they had made a poor choice at the time of choosing. In fact at the time of choosing the choice was the best one they could make, so that's what they did. Had a better choice revealed itself at the moment of choosing, they would've made that better choice instead.
Why do people regret? Why do people think they make poor choices, when it's not true?
We've been brainwashed into regretting, thinking we are bad persons, thinking that we should’ve somehow magically had some better information, but it was because of our magically tainted soul that we didn’t have this knowledge. We think we should’ve known better, when in fact we could not have.
Think about right now, this moment. Why would you make a mistake? Why would you do something you don’t intend to do? How could you do something you don’t intend to do? Bad choices always seem to be made in the past, never in the present. Why is that? Is it possible to make a bad choice? It's possible to think afterwards that it was a bad choice, but in the time of choosing, is it possible to choose wrong?
