i will assume from the lack of comments recently that my attack on coscience has got the wheels turning in new ways.
we have an attachment to being seen in certain ways by others. this is ego. we want to be seen as being good. so we buy into the idea of conscience as a way to be seen as being good. this indoctrination begins the moment we can understand and formulate thoughts. mum says that you are a good little child and our hearts swell with the pride of being recognised by the one who nurtures.........at a time where we haven`t formulated a clear distinction between our own self and that of our mother. so it`s all happening at a time when we aren`t clear about anything. we just get good feelings coming from recognition for doing what mum wanted.
when we do something that mum doesn`t like then all hell breaks loose and continues until we have convinced mum that it won`t happen again.
we are sorry.
we do things to prove that we are sorry.
we avoid doing that thing again.
now we have a relationship built out of conditional nurture and love.
if we do the right things we will get the good stuff.
and vise versa.
so a conscience is formed.
then comes an education.
then comes a job.
all based on the archetecture of conditional conscience.
resist the urge to be acknowledged for what someone else regards as good.
resist the urge to be acknowledged for what you used to regard as good.
if you love yourself unconditionally, it doesn`t matter what you did, what you will do or what you can do.
that`s what unconditional means.
in legal terms conditions are stipulations that must be met for the contract to be fulfilled.
don`t contractually obligate yourself to be able to live your life........when.
live your life now.
the pressure is off.
now smile and go on to the next thing.
