August Discussion Topic:  CONSCIENCE

“Always let your conscience be your guide.” — Jiminy Cricket

In Walt Disney’s 1940 animated classic “Pinocchio,” a little cricket named Jiminy lent voice to the big task of guiding Pinocchio to follow his conscience for a happy, healthy and rewarding life.  Just like Pinocchio, we all struggle with the ego’s desire for short-term, limited gratification versus the long-term benefit offered by the conscience. The AMI MEDITATION foundation course of Yoga Science explains how you can benefit by teaching your ego, senses and unconscious mind to use the wise counsel of your own conscience.  Enjoy this video clip and join us in exploring this month’s teachings on the importance of the CONSCIENCE.

Conscience Uncovers the Truth

To lie or not to lie. That is the question. The internal dialogue that takes place while we decide whether or not to serve the Truth usually sounds like this: “If I lie, the outcome I fear will probably just disappear. If I speak the Truth, the outcome I fear is going to cause me pain.”
