Welcome To Heart and Mind

“The ultimate test of man's conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.”
Gaylord Nelson

 

Hello,

As I write, we are surrounded by discord, conflict and hate, as individuals, political groups and nations seem hell-bent on getting their own way with no concern for those who disagree with their views, beliefs, faiths and cultures.

On the one hand we have those that worship materialism and personal greed, whilst on the other hand we have those who worship dangerous concepts based on social and religious extremism with violent traditions that belong to the dark ages. From petty crime to the fight for ultimate power (and everything in between) we are under constant threat from others. Add to this the ever increasing environmental threats to our planet to which we have all contributed, and it seems likely that we are either looking at a very unpleasant future or no future at all.

We are all victims of this situation and we are all guilty of it. The time for blaming others is over, the time to start embracing others is nigh.

“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”
Martin Luther King Jr

The purpose of this website is to empower hearts and minds to improve and even change the world for the better.

At this moment YOU are the most important person in the world, because you as an individual have the power within you to make a difference. Collectively, that could mean a new and beautiful world for us all and for future generations to come, or a continuation of the same selfish, uncompromising system that has created the seriously divided society in which we currently live.

So, what can you do to help make a difference?

Change your mind. You have your own personal ideologies and beliefs about life and about what's right and wrong and now is the time to examine them.

Forget what you've been bred, taught and told and start thinking for yourself. Every sane human being knows the difference between right and wrong, good and evil. And they know it NOT from what they've been bred, taught and told by others but by what they know instinctively to be true - according to their conscience.

“Humanity is lost because people have abandoned using their conscience as their compass.”
Suzy Kassem

Here's what you must do. No matter what issues, problems and choices you're faced with at this moment - consult your conscience. Ask the question you need to ask and listen to the answer. If you're honest with yourself, you will hear a message of good; good sense, good intentions and goodwill.

If you're feeling animosity toward a person or a situation, you may find the answer difficult to accept, but rest assured if the answer suggests good intentions, it is right and it is your ego that's wrong.

Beware the Ego. The ego will often be in conflict with your conscience, because the ego brings you what you want, not necessarily what you need. The ego is concerned only with self; not others. The ego provides short-term satisfaction not permanent solutions or peace-of-mind, because ego thinks from the head whereas conscience thinks from the heart.

Be honest with your conscience, be honest with your self and take the route for good.

- John Weaver

Conscience

alt

[An inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one's behavior:]

Contrary to common belief, we do come into this world with a handbook; a guide to living. Sadly, most people don't refer to it, even though they know it's there. Others choose to ignore it. It's called; Your Conscience.

Your conscience is that little voice inside your head that alerts you to wrong thinking and wrongdoing. Everyone has one though many pretend they don't as an excuse for their actions.

Some say it's the voice of God or your higher-self. Whatever it is, it's real and has a very real purpose. It's as real as any other function of the human body and so we must accept that it has a very serious and important job to do.

If you have doubts about something you're about to do, consult your conscience. The answer will always be in terms of love for the other person or a guide for the best outcome for a particular situation.

To those who may say the answer they got was to hurt someone or to gain a personal material advantage, I say you're hearing what you want to hear and it's not your conscience speaking.
