Conscience

Some believe that the Holy Spirit guides us through our conscience. Your conscience is your internal sense of right and wrong, leading you to feel either that you are good or guilty. The Holy Spirit will never teach you that you are guilty. That is in direct opposition to what the Holy Spirit wants you to learn. This alone should tell you the Holy Spirit cannot be the source of your conscience.

Your conscience is based on judgment. What does the Course tell us about judgment?

The world trains for reliance on one's judgment as the criterion for maturity and strength. Our curriculum trains for the relinquishment of judgment as the necessary condition of salvation. (M-9.2)

In God, Everything is One and the Same and you are Part of God, forever sinless. That is the only judgment to make. Ego’s judgments of “good” or “bad” are meant to keep you focused on the illusion of bodies and egos and the world. Judgment focuses on differences, which are never real, and to keep you apart from others.

The Holy Spirit knows that you are sinless and so knows how to judge for you. Ego would teach you that you are not Who you are. The Holy Spirit will teach you to remember Who you are. Follow your conscience and you follow ego and are lost; follow your Holy Spirit and you will remember you are Part of God.
