Life is a test; how strong a test is entirely due to the choices you make. During our waking hours, we can choose to use all our energies into making the lives of others a more secure, enriched, loved and contented one.
We can also choose to be ignorant of the pains, trials, difficulties and injustices that so many of us have faced and may face again at some point or another during our waking lives.
Everyday we are learning of atrocities, wrongs and unimaginable acts taken by our fellow human beings that has I am sure, made many of us pray for a divine intervention. Pretty despairing stuff in truth.
There are also at the same time, many people living extraordinary feats of achievements, altruistic behaviours, and making a determined wish to make our Earth, and everything connected with her, one that during our waking and non waking hours we are able to find the deepest peace.
I think the real aim of humanity is not only to procreate, this is in our DNA. We possess masterful powers, powers that if so much of our world was able to talk to us (and it is already doing so) it will say, please be considered, please do not be selfish, please; we are all here to share this living planet, please have a conscience.
It is conscience that is the focus of today’s reflection; you see, we all have one, some of us have a conscience that all key life choices must first connect with, before action is taken.
This I suspect our interconnected living planet will approve of wholeheartedly. It is Responding to life and not Reacting to it.
Should you take an action, that hurts, creates chaos, is knowingly unjust, destroys, is bereft of compassion or empathy, than conscience turns into an internal energy akin to being haunted by day, and mentally plagued at night.
When you hear people say, ‘my conscience is clear‘ it literally means that they have made choices that has given them no reason for regret, no reason for acquiescence, is unjustified or any sense that wrong of any kind has been committed.
There will be many that will understand this; it is a powerful, deeply satisfying and peaceful place to be.
Our natural world is wired to work in harmony together, it is us, we humans, that have been given the power of free will and choice that often falls out of line.
We consciously abuse this power, against the natural world, and each other. Why as a species we do so, I have no answer, other than to say, because we can… that’s what conscious power can do to some people; make them feel that they can make in the face of ignorance, reactive and selfish choices believing there will be no consequence. Truth is, there’s always a consequence, it may not be immediately apparent, but it will; just as day turns to night, it will happen, no hiding place – this is the way of the universe to which we are all children.
It is easy to get stressed out, or worse still ‘react’ at actions that pricks your ‘conscience’ in some way, a sense that what you just experienced, JUST AIN’T RIGHT. There’s really is no need to muddy waters, and moreover you need to make sure your conscience remains clear right.
The omnipotent laws of natural justice will always find ways to safeguard the enshrined unbreakable rules of the universe. So just sit back, put your feet up, listen to your preferred choice of music, and relax knowing natural balance will return sooner or later.
Just writing that paragraph, I find deeply comforting; hopefully you will feel the same.
