This is Lesson 2 in the 10-part series of meditations exploring consciousness.
Our conscience is the part of our Higher Self that assists us in acting for the best interests of ourselves and others in a given situation. It is discriminative.
The conscience evaluates the entire situation with all its ramifications before drawing a conclusion. It's message directs us to the way that allows us to feel most easeful in our physical body when thinking about the situation.
By listening to and following our conscience, which works in conjunction with our super-consciousness - expanded awareness - we are harmonizing our Higher Self into our state of usual waking awareness. Then we are really functioning as an integrated unit. We are enjoying life in its fullness; we are best able to pilot the plane of our life.
A 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 this article, such as conscience, Higher Self, discriminative.
What is your understanding of the idea it represents? How could you apply it to your life?
To end the meditation take a deep breath, stretch, and get up or sleep.
