Revive Your Conscience

We all know our present depends on the choices we had made in the past. Someone had made a choice to divide the earth into countries, people into castes and God into religions. Someone had made a choice to make nuclear weapons. This country made a choice to rule that country. That group made a choice to oppress this group. And we kept on making the choices to create this present world. Have we made the right choices? Only one person can tell and that is you!

Humans come with a navigating system called conscience, it tells us whether we are on the right path or on the wrong track. Our conscience always warns us whenever we turn in the wrong direction and gives us ‘go ahead’ if we are heading right. That means our conscience always makes the right choice? Yes! Then why is there so much anguish, hatred and destruction in the present world?

Because our conscience is not conscious. Some put it into slumber that is next to dead. Some people’s conscience is in a state of drowsiness; it may work sometimes. Few have fully awake conscience and it ensures that they are always on the right path.

Just imagine a world where all the choices are made by our conscience – watchful, alive and mindful!

We all need to overhaul our conscience to witness serene and beautiful sights on this journey of life and make this world a kinder place.

Crossroads

You are roving through the terrains

On not so bumpy ways

The track seems easy and straight

Road map imprinted in mind

Terminus of journey set in the eyes

Abruptly! You brake at a standstill

Highway splits into two

You are on the crossroads

Decide! The turn of the steering

Lot of crowd heading to the right

Few can be seen on the left side

Make a choice; join the herd to be safe!

Or take a left if your heart says

Close your eyes; talk to the self

Leap of faith or the safety net

Make a purest bid with your conscience

On the crossroads of life; it’s your call

Stick to the conviction; make a decision.
