"Love is the affinity which links and
draws together the elements of the world... Love, in fact, is the agent
of universal synthesis."
Conscience and the
Light of the World
Albert Einstein said:
In this statement: "God is Light; in Him there is no Darkness at all" (1John1:5) we find the New Testament is pointing to the world of Quantum Physics, i.e. sub-atomic particles and [the speed of] light that is linked and shaped by the state of our own consciousness. That consciousness has an inherent relationship with God (Light-Love-Law) and it is by this consciousness we find our conscience.
The scientist, Dr Albert Hofman said: "Consciousness is Gods’ gift to mankind”: It is by consciousness we exist, but it is by CONSCIENCE we survive collectively and have worth individually. Conscience is a necessary ingredient to humankind either way–for our continued progress. The great American Revolutionary and Forefather George Washington called it the "little spark of celestial fire." Power-packed indeed.
So how does that little spark of celestial fire–conscience–translate itself in the world?
Metaphysically: Conscience is the Light in our soul; and literally closes the gap between Heaven and Earth.
Conscience is awareness of our Oneness and Interconnectedness with
each other and all things; It allows us to see what is meant by:
"Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself" and to be kind to all beings.
Who You Are: With the fundamental basis of Reality being Light-Love-Law – conscience is the Real You –
No justification or rationalization required!
The Authentic Religion: Standing in the Light of your own conscience you command with God [Love-Light-Law].
It is said: "We should pray as if everything depends on God and work as if everything depends on us." This means that Peace is not Possible without Justice. If we want Peace, then we must work for Justice which is the heart of conscience.
Justice, (which is the product of conscience) often means rebellion or disobedience to authoritarianism.
Martin Luther King said in his Letter from Birmingham City Jail: "A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law;
St. Augustine said: "An unjust law is no law at all";
and the poet Henry David Thoreau said: If... the machine of government... is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law";
This all means we can't be Human without conscience which is why we find people who stand with their conscience at all costs. The moral of the story: It is worth being Human in a Human world. If we want to fine tune it further, we can also say: "It is worth being Human FOR a Human world."
