Awak­en­ing the con­science

The Sun (Malaysia) - - GOOD VIBES -

OUR CON­SCIENCE is a gauge to help us mon­i­tor the qual­ity of our thoughts, words and actions. But from time to time, our con­science falls asleep and, there­fore, needs an awak­en­ing.

To awaken our con­science is to heed our in­ner spir­i­tual guide – our in­ner voice.

As we en­gage in re­flec­tion, we be­gin to awaken our con­science and know­ingly take re­spon­si­bil­ity for our words and deeds.

Our con­science should nav­i­gate us into safer shores of peace and calm and not an overly-an­a­lyt­i­cal judge­ment of our­self.

As we un­der­stand this link and in­vest in re­flec­tion, we take hold of the pen that writes our life story.

With ev­ery im­pres­sion, there is a cor­re­spond­ing ex­pres­sion. We can­not help but ex­press what we have ab­sorbed.

Thus, it is im­por­tant to sur­round one­self with good peo­ple. At least, un­til one builds an im­mu­nity to neg­a­tiv­ity.

Once we have be­come strong and built our in­ter­nal walls of de­fence, we could be sub­ject to the loud­est of com­plain­ers and crit­ics and yet re­main com­pletely un­af­fected by their out­bursts.

In fact, it is an art to know what to ab­sorb. As we con­sciously choose the best, we will only record the best, and there­fore, we will ex­press only the best in us.

Re­mem­ber, you de­fine your­self by the choices you make. You have no one to blame – and only your­self to re­ward when you im­press oth­ers with the beau­ti­ful im­pres­sions recorded in your soul!
