CHENNAI: When we follow our conscience we are protected. A clear conscience leads to a pure mind and that makes us free from guilt and fear. Nothing or nobody has the power to shake us. Every word we speak has the ring of truth and everybody believes us. Whatever we say has great credibility in society. Our faith in ourselves rises to infinite levels and seeps out of each pore.
When we meditate nothing bothers us because we are established in an eternal truth. We are connected to our souls and oru minds are buoyant, free and fearless. So as soon as we begin meditating we float effortlessly in a state of joy.

Attain true faith, belief and trust in your self. Practise listening to your conscience and heed it unceasingly for the next seven days. Then we will work together at losing our ego and preparing the mind further to accept meditation.
Let us go to the next stage of our journey together. Now that you have been trying to follow your conscience for the past seven days, you would have realised that this requires great awareness, perseverance and commitment.
If we are not perpetually aware we slip back into our habit of ignoring our conscience whenever it is convenient for us. If we lack perseverance, will power and commitment we will not be able to face even the smallest challenge. It is easier for us to think that it is too difficult and demanding to be true to one’s conscience in today’s world. It might be easier to convince ourselves that such tasks are Herculean and we should therefore not even attempt them. Because of this we may miss hearing the voice of our conscience and end up committing a mistake that could land us in a lot of trouble.
This inner guiding voice constantly tells us what to do and what not to do. It also makes us aware of our faulty thinking patterns, negative emotions, inappropriate desires, compulsions, obsessions and wrong attitudes.
The more sincere, aware and committed we are, the swifter and greater is our inner transformation. The problems in our lives reduce drastically because when we obey our conscience we make fewer mistakes.
