The original word sin means - to miss.
It doesn’t mean to commit something wrong; it
simply means to miss, to be absent.
The Hebrew root for the word sin, means to miss.
That exists in a few English words: misconduct,
misbehavior.
To miss means not to be there, doing something
without being present there — this is the only
sin. And the only virtue: while you are doing something you
are fully alert — what Gurdjieff
calls selfremembering, what Buddha calls being
rightly mindful, what Krishnamurti calls awareness, what
Kabir has called SURATI. To be there! — that’s all that is
needed, nothing more. You need not change anything, and
even if you try to change you cannot"

God's commandments are written in the heart. Scripture
and prophesy are ABOUT the world, life in it, being
human....The actual world is the direct exhalation of God. WE
are the actual world. We are inhabitants of the physical
world. We are God’s Creation, about which scripture is
written (it’s for those living in the world). God's will is
embedded in the reality of everything. When we are "in sin",
we are distracted from the truth within, from that which is
real, that which is the direct exhalation of God – distracted
from the truth that we are by nature, in essence, OF God; we
are Good, goodness manifest - Our True Selves are, in fact,
God's word. The human child learns about the world and
how to live in it by looking outwards, imitating what is
observed and being shaped by the rewards and punishments
which come our way from without, from outside of
ourselves. There are a lot of mixed motives and levels of
understanding shaping the world we live in and we are
shaped by our dependence on all of that simply in order to
grow into adults. As adults - that is when we begin to
struggle with the questions of good and bad and what we
are capable of - are we good or dangerous? Can we be
powerful or are we not to be trusted with the welfare of
others and ourselves? If our focus is on the messages and
conditioning we receive from the outside world, then we
believe and act according to beliefs based on a variety of
things that aren’t true and are living in a state of sin. If we
shift our focus from what the world appears to be reflecting
about us (but is in fact a mish mash of some actual
reflection and a lot of confusion and confused reactions) to
our deepest selves, we find the truth. The more strongly we
can stand in and rely upon that truth, the more we move
away from sin. It’s a challenge to give up false beliefs, and
possibly a long process which produces mixed results in the
world. So, we have to continue referencing that deep inner
truth, examining how we live with it, and understanding that
the appearance of evil is simply due to the widespread and
deep-seated misunderstanding that we are not, in fact, of
God, we are not, in fact, Pure at our cores. The actions that
misunderstanding leads to and their results in the world can
be very ugly, frightening, and, ultimately, dangerous to the
extent they distract us from our deepest truth – that we are
God’s children, made (literally) in his image, good and even
powerful - and cause us to make mistakes based on
misunderstanding, which can cause suffering.
The reason guilt, with all of its emotional and social
implications, is a useful tool in the process of growing out of
reliance upon sin is that it naturally arises when we begin to
look straight at our fear that we have caused suffering even
though it could have been avoided. The fact that we did it
while in a state of sin – of misunderstanding – doesn’t
alleviate our remorse, which is very painful and hard to face.
(Causing suffering, while acceptable to us on a theoretical
level under certain circumstances, like punishing a child in
order to teach her, is not acceptable to us, emotionally. If
we adapt to the challenges of the outside world by
hardening ourselves to causing suffering, we might think it is
acceptable to us on a deep level, but it isn’t; and, believing
that it is a powerful obstacle to overcoming sin, because
looking deeply and finding that we are okay with causing
suffering unnecessarily is our greatest fear.) The feeling of
guilt drives us to examine our motives relentlessly until we
find – as we must, because, as God’s children, we are, by
nature, good – that, under all of the mixed motives,
mistakes, and regret, we only mean well. We have to face
the fear that we could cause suffering out of a sense of
enjoyment (true evil), that we didn’t or wouldn’t only act to
cause suffering out of necessity (given the circumstances,
including our level of wisdom, at the time) in order to
discover the truth about ourselves, which is that we are in
essence, really just about love. To see the truth, one has to
look, not look away. To the extent we can live in that truth
and act only from it, we can avoid sin. It’s a process; the
outside world continues to reward and punish and seem to
reflect us in a way that is unsupportive of turning away from
it and relying on a truth only we can see, only within.
The nature of sin is adapting to life as a physical organism in
a complex world; it’s natural for a human organism and not
to be frightened of. The only thing to be frightened of is that
we might be weak in the face of fear and let it prevent us
from facing the superficial nature (by that, I mean origin, not
that the suffering they might cause is superficial) of even the
worst mistakes we have made and getting beneath it to see
our real selves.
