Conscience vs. discrimination

Interview at Zurich in 1934

Q. How can one develop conscience?

BABA:  Conscience can never be defined as right or wrong, because it is not based on intellect. So when one feels, conscience speaks.

Q. Is it responsive to internal happenings?

BABA:  Today your conscience might say believe in me, and tomorrow it might say do not believe in me. Conscience means immediate response to emotion and so always do what you feel. If you feel today believe in me, do believe. Tomorrow if you don’t feel so, don’t believe. Conscience is different from discrimination.

Q. Is there something higher than conscience or discrimination?

BABA:  Yes, higher than discrimination is Divine Love, and when one really loves, conscience and discrimination are out of place. Everything is immaterial then; nothing counts.
