Conscience created or innate To what extent do you think you are dictated by your surroundings and your up-bringing Do you claim your opinions to be your own Do you trust your logic and your conscience These are questions that are seldom asked by ourselves or by others In fact these kinds of questions could almost be considered taboo It seems to be generally accepted that one can trust oneself ones authority and ones conscience Upon these premises we seem to build up everything else We rely on our beliefs We trust them and once we decide they are true we put our energy towards protecting them We find justification for obeying the things and people we beleive in Whether it be our government our parents or any beleif we hold dear we regard our beliefs as sources of truth and direction They make up a very significant part of what we are Perhaps of all of our sources of direction or guidance our consciences receive the highest regard and trust In many ways we attempt to obey our consciences without fail We hold our consciences to be the absolute truth that acts as a ground for our actions and beliefs But what is a conscience and where does it come from Merriam-Websters English Dictionary defines conscience as consciousness of the moral right or wrong of ones own acts or motives p 171 So your conscience serves as the part of ones thoughts that agrees with good and disagrees with bad It is the mechanism that allows you to know the difference between good and evil Does this mean that if we are to follow our consciences collectively there will be no problems and no wrong No this is definitely not true There is no absolute right or wrong One finds this virtually anywhere that one looks Granted there appears to be many actions that are universally considered wrong Stealing murder lying etc
