The Disentigration of Conscience

Conscience is an aptitude, faculty, intuition or judgment of the intellect.
It distinguishes right from wrong.
 In psych terms, 
conscience causes feelings of remorse when one commits actions that go against 
 moral values, rectitude or integrity.

Commonly used metaphors for conscience include:
 the "voice within" and the "inner light".

Often small events in life that turn out to be the catalyst for transformation.
Some times your struggle and search will lead to your passion.
When finding and living your life passion, you need a logical plan of action.

I love those who can smile in trouble,
 who can gather strength from distress,
and grow brave by reflection.
 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink,
 but they whose heart is firm,
and whose conscience approves their conduct,
 will pursue their principles unto death.

-Leonardo Davinci-

To begin creating your own better self, you must learn to balance
 your head and your heart. 
 Relying on your heart to inform your thoughts will force you to evolve.
Baby steps..... Small acts can do the job.
Grand gestures and acts of heroism are not necessary to achieve this.

Give yourself permission to express emotions.
 Alot of times I'm accused of being passive aggressive because I do this. 
When you express emotions such as anger, sadness, guilt,
 or shame you're are perceived to be negative..... or weak.
In communicating your emotions, it’s not only about the words you say.
Your intention is also extremely important.
 Be careful that you are not expecting the other person to make you feel better.
This often leads to anger, frustration, and disappointment.
Martial Arts vs Bullying
Violence in any form implies a loss of self-control. 

Joe Lewis taught us,
martial arts instructors reinforce behavior codes that are about acquiring an attitude of self-control. 
 The last stronghold of maintaining a non-violent society lies with the
martial arts industry.

Wisdom is knowing what to do next;
Skill is knowing how to do it,
 and Courage is doing it.
