We each have a personal open line to an 'Advisor' known to us as our conscience.
We develop a clear and reliable conscience gradually, when, with a caring attitude, we make repeated efforts to act for the highest good.
We are following our conscience when:
1. Our body feels relaxed;
2. Our mind is content and peaceful;
3. No one else is affected negatively by our action.
It is worth the effort to develop this intimate relationship that always serves to produce our clearest experience of peace and happiness.
Also, acting for the best resolve we are aware of nourishes our self-esteem. We feel more in control of our lives knowing that there is a best way to resolve any situation.
Meditation for Reflection
Sitting or lying still begin even breathing to calm the mind and relax the body - count 1 breathe in, count 2 breathe out, continuing for a minute or more.
Think about one of the key phrases from your reading: 'Advisor', Caring Attitude, Conscience.
What is your understanding of the idea it represents? How could you apply it to your life?
Take a few minutes while in your quiet space and think back to times you acted on your conscience, even when you may have wanted to do something differently. Did you feel a sense of comfort in your mind and body? That is the aim of acting on your conscience - preserving harmony in living.
To end the session take a deep breath, stretch, and get up or sleep.
"Joy in living is the goal
Of every living human soul
Attained by consistently following
The voice of conscience."
