The Fifth Sign of Soul Formation - the 'emergence of conscience'

The fifth sign that one is progressing to support harmonized Soul creation is when one has consciously developed the ability to receive and act on 'conscience'. This is difficult as our functions (thoughts, feelings, sensations) are seen as the primary instruments to navigate life. However, there are many situations in life where no amount of thinking, feeling or sensing can help.


Conscience comes from a different place in us. It is not from mental functions, or intuitions or the body, or even from consciousness. It comes when we are not looking for it - as if out of nowhere, from another dimension. When we begin to open to it and recognise its flavour, we must learn to simply listen and obey. If we don't, something in us can close off, shut down.


Conscience cannot be trained or exercised, only prepared for. It comes in its own time and in its own way. The question is how do I respond when it arrives? With doubt or with embrace?

We almost never listen, let alone act, on the calling of our conscience because we constantly get in the way - so full of ourselves that nothing else can enter.

The conditions that allow the natural emergence of conscience (and the growth of discerning response to it) is a subtle art and a great science. When I begin to 'trust' conscience to guide my actions, a new world opens up.

The factors for the being-impulse conscience arise in the presences of the three-brained beings from the localization of the particles of the "emanations-of-the-sorrow" of our OMNI-LOVING AND LONG-SUFFERING-ENDLESS-CREATOR; that is why the source of the manifestation of genuine conscience in three-centered beings is sometimes called the REPRESENATIVE OF THE CREATOR.
