Wiping the slate clean of what exactly?
Past delusions. Relying on promises that will never be kept. Relying on emotional sensation instead of evidence about what I really need to do to heal. Relying on someone else to rescue me when there is no reason to think that will happen. Relying on someone else to provide me with worth. Those kind of things.
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
