The Conscious Mind: Making your own descisions
Are we conscious of our conscience?
Hmmm. The conscious mind. What is it? How to perceive it? Why? What is it good for?
Well we are all born with a conscience. What is that conscience? What does it tell us to do? What does it tell us not to do? Why is the word science in conscience?!
Our basic human conscience enables us to see good or bad, right from wrong, or the difference of opposite actions and how they play out. Science is a study of the earth and since we are of the earth, I think our minds' inner thoughts and feelings are therefore called conscience, though that's my idea totally lol, something I just thought up.
How to perceive it?
Rather how to perceive. If we clear our minds of clutter we can see much more clearly that's for sure. This will also enable us to make our own descisions based on what we want, not what someone else wants or tells us to do. "If you don't make your own descisions, someone else will make them for you." Would you like to be free? You must make your descisions in life and when you do, the results will follow and if you want a good chance at good results, make good descisions. How to make good descisions? Weigh the good and the bad, even ask a few wise friends (wise as in wisdom...) and roll it around in your brain until you know/feel what you should do.
How to clear our minds of clutter.
Many meditate or spend time in a forest or at a waterfall, these basic elements of nature, which is part of us, because we are living in nature, we are surrounded by it (or supposed to be! lol) so it soothes us, for we are made to be in nature.
Contemplation. Staring at a starry sky. Floating in a pond. Whatever helps you to discern. Discerning comes much easier if we let go of what others had told us to do, what other's opinions are. Why can't we make our own descisions? Again "if you don't make your own descisions, they'll be made for you." One of our fundamental rights in America as in the Bill of Rights, the first Amendment, is freedom of speech. Why is it first? Because it's hard to act on things if you don't speak first.
What is the conscience mind good for?
Freedom to think, freedom to feel, freedom to be. Let me reccommend another hubber's hub called A Conscience Mind Never Needs To Escape Truth. It's truly a great read. And so I'll end this hub on that note as I'm just a beginner in this philosophy of life....
Where are you going on your path in life?
