Restlessness-and-Regret arise can make it fade away:
is present, the bhikkhu notes and understands: There is Restlessness-and-Regret in me,
while when Restlessness-and-Regret
is absent, then he notes and understands: No Restlessness-and-Regret is in me.
He also understands well how
Restlessness-and-Regret arise. He understands how to leave behind any arisen Restlessness-and-Regret,
and he understands how left Restlessness-and-Regret will not arise again. MN 10
What is the feeding cause that makes
arise? There are unrest, unsettledness, nervous unease, agitation
often giving irrational and unwise attention to such states, this is the feeding cause
of the arising
of Restlessness-and-Regret, and the feeding cause of
worsening and exacerbation of already arisen
Restlessness-and-Regret. SN 46:51
What is the starving cause that makes
cease? There is the mental state of serene tranquillity, calm, quietude,
stillness, imperturbability, peace, frequently giving rational
attention to this exquisite mental state, is the starving cause for the non-arising
of absent Restlessness-and-Regret, and the starving cause
for the dampening and calming of Restlessness-and-Regret, that has already been stirred up.
reflections whenever Restlessness-and-Regret is provoked: When the mind is restless, it is the proper
time for cultivating the following factors of enlightenment:
because an agitated mind can easily be quietened by
them. SN 46:53
is like Slavery: Just as when a man is a slave, not independent,
but dependent on others, unable to go where he likes,
exactly and even so is restlessness, since it
forces one into unwanted activity, and destroys any ease of calm. Later he is set free
from slavery, is now independent, no longer dependent,
a freeman who can go
where-ever he wants. And at that release he rejoices, is glad at heart...
also the blissful freedom from restlessness. DN 2
to a Conscious and Clever
Centre of Concentration: Herein, Ananda, a Bhikkhu attends to
this single Focus: This is Real, this is Supreme, namely: The Stilling of all mental Construction,
The Calming of all Restless Activity,
The Fading of all Concern
and Anxiety, The Cooling of all Temptation and Urge, The Ending of all Longing
and Craving, The Exhaustion of all Fuel of Becoming, Ceasing, Peace, Bliss, Freedom,

DOING GOOD = NO REGRET! Here and now the good-doer
rejoices! :-) Even so after passing away, and re-emerging, the doer of good reaps only
and ease... So both here
and beyond, the wise with merit well done, enjoys the purity
of own prior good behaviour. Dhammapada 15
DOING BAD = MUCH
REGRET! Here and now the bad-doer suffers...
:-( Even so after passing away, and re-emerging, the doer of wrong reaps only pain and regret...
So both here and beyond, the evil
suffers the painful results of prior behaviour. Dhammapada 16
