True confession: How to sincerely confess your mistake

A woman in her 60s said bad about a person to someone knowingly that her story could spread out and reach one day to that person. The person got very upset when the person heard what she told and said to her that he/she does not want to do anything with her anymore in her life. She thinks that even though she apologize, the person will not like it. But somehow she wants to make it up. She wants to have a happy life again for her and the person. Osho-Taigu – Prescription based on his Buddhist philosophy and life experience. As Dougen Zenji said, we all tend to make bad deeds while we are thinking that we are not doing so. When we make a mistake we must sincerely admit, accept and apology what we did. First we admit and reflect our own mistake. And then we must apologize sincerely. We learn from a bitter experience and move on.

ステップアップさん、60代の女性からの悩み。 過去に人のことを悪く言ってしまい、それが本人の耳に入ってしまった。そして絶縁を言い渡された。その事に対して自業自得だと思っている。相手は謝罪なんか聞きたくないと思うが、すっきりとして幸せになりたい気持ちがある。 「懺悔(さんげ)」という言葉がある。自分の犯してしまった過ちに対して素直に悔い改めるという意味。 ステップアップさんの問題は懺悔をしていると言いながら謝罪をしていない。当たり前の手順を踏んでいない。道元禅師の教えに「愛語」というものがある。 この愛語というのは、「直接面と向かって言うよりも回り回って人から聞いた方が何倍も自分の魂に響く。」という教え。悪口も同じ。人づてに聞く悪口ほど相手の精神にダメージを与えるものはない。誠心誠意に謝る他に道はない。相手が許してくれるかどうかは相手の選択である。同じく道元禅師の教えに「悪を作りながら、悪にあらずと思い、悪の報あるべからずと、邪思惟する。 けれども悪の報を感得せざるにはあらず。」というものがある。私たちは自分が何も悪い事していないと思いながら悪いことをしてしまう。そしてその自分がしたことの報いが自分に返ってくるなんてことは想像もしない。しかし自分が蒔いた種は必ず自分に返ってくる。動物と違い人間は選択することができる。そのためには知性と勇気が必要となる。懺悔をする時には素直さが必要となる。プライドを捨てて心から懺悔しなければならない。「ごめんなさい。」という誠心誠意の謝罪をして次に進んでほしい。
