Outer guideposts are our lifeline until our voice of conscience can be followed consistently.
We live for a reason, we are to live reasonably. To effectuate a life lived consciously in harmony with all, requires us to live each moment for the higher good.
Outer guidelines are provided by religions and society. In either case, these guideposts point the way until we learn to make decisions for highest good of prevailing circumstances consistently and spontaneously.
Harmony in living provides happiness in living. When our actions blend harmoniously into the whole of circumstances, we grow more conscious of the underlying harmony of the universe. We become conscious that we are one of the parts and part of the One. And, that we have a universal role to contribute to the harmonious functioning of the universe, while we individually grow in consciousness of our Self.
We develop our conscience more fully, by more and more often following our inner voice of conscience.
Some methods to develop a strong conscience:
1. Live by the golden rules set forth in religious traditions.
2. Live by the guidelines of society.
3. While living according to religion's or society's guidelines integrate the reasoning behind these guideposts into each act.
4. Take advantage of opportunities to be kind and caring.
5. Pay attention to bodily signs that reflect if an act is for the best resolve of the situation.
Feeling relaxed bodily, and at ease mentally are the inner guideposts of an action aligned with conscience.
Physical and mental stress are the ways our body and mind reminds us that we are not acting in harmony with the situation.
Regular meditation practice, including a period for reflection, gives us the time to consider the best resolves to daily conflicts and problems. Meditation is an oasis of peace to drink from regularly and deeply, quenching our thirst for direct correct knowledge.
We live best
Harmoniously and happily
By learning to follow our conscience spontaneously.
