Is your Conscience all right?

There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience. It supersedes all other courts.

We call it conscience pangs when we do not know exactly whether we have needless churning something wrong and it may be ethical or legal, depending on the substance of the heart.

Of course there are differences between ethics and law and there are several variations depending on where we live or reside in the world. I have lived and stayed in many different countries and each time I had to put myself thoroughly into these areas before I possibly violated law `s long arm or expressed anything wrong under current culture and lifestyle.

My conscience was on a test countless times, but after further consideration, I chose many times to “test” the limits of how much ethics `s role played in different cultures and religious beliefs. In some countries, the dominant religion is also part of the policy, which in turn is the basis for the country `s legal laws.

The lies of Sarah Palin are different from any other politicians’. They are different because they assert things that are demonstrably, empirically untrue; and they are different because once they have been demonstrated to the entire world that they are untrue, Palin keeps repeating them as if they still were true or refuses to acknowledge that she was wrong.

But what is conscience really when we feel that something has gone wrong? … An average of the world `s ethical or legal environment or upbringing` s and hence our parent’s influence on what is right or wrong? There is certainly not a “one way road” to explain this phenomenon and if we start with the 10 commandments, there are certainly not many that can put a check from each of these Commandments.

Conscience should be a matter of “follow what your heart says – it never fails” and any doubt should thus be swept away under the ground, but no…. the world `s conflicts do not arise from nothing and man` s mirror is clearly visible just in the circumstances where selfishness and pride comes at a trial involving the entire emotional register in which even the most fundamental believers or professionally trained human will fail and store something in conscience `s cells reappearing at a later date.

We are quick to say “I always speak the truth, the truth and nothing but the truth, I always have a good conscience and never lies”,,,, but there’s also something called “moment of truth has come” …… and that sentence is worth remembering – it is always surprising and without notice, so it may be wise not to advertise too much about either our own or other people’s truthfulness….. It will always be on thin ice and cannot be assured…!

But what should we do to have clean flour in our pockets – Maybe a matter of simple life experience combined with our ability to improve our own qualities – We are not equal in thinking and actions and it will probably never arise in this world, why conscience will be up to each individual person to assess – but without a conscience we would end up as psychopaths – a condition that would bring the world into total chaos.!

A word of advice could be … “Do not throw stones at others when you live in a glass house without insurance”!

Enjoy life in good conscience and follow your heart and nature in all aspects of life, Still we are just human´s walking-the-talk wherever it might be in the world.
