Awakening the conscience
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!
