Sin means “to err, to miss the mark”
To live unskillfully, to miss the point of existence.
- The human individual exists in a state of sin, or “missing the mark”, this sin which is a separation from God or their own inner being. The human also exists in a state of suffering, anxiety, tension, unease which exists as long as one is trapped in the duality of seeking pleasure and avoiding pain. The human exists in a state of illusion and delusion; in ignorance of what is real and what is false, delusion and illusion as to who they are-identified with their thought processes and the accumulations of the ego.
