What do we understand by “conscience”? We have all had experiences of having a guilty conscience and a clear conscience. We see that our conscience is connected to our varying ideas about good and evil, so that an action that would give one person a guilty conscience would not bother another.
Conscience, according to Martinus, is one of the factors that transform animals into truly humane human beings. It evolves from incarnation to incarnation and regulates what we have the heart to do to others. It becomes an “inner voice” that helps us to live up to our changing ideals.
Mary McGovern interviews Karin Jansson on the evolution of our conscience, the difference between “shame”, “sin” and a “guilty conscience” and on how our ideals becomes “pillars of light” guiding us towards higher states of consciousness and creativity.
