Conscience Your conscience is an inner sense of what is right or wrong in your conduct or motives, compelling you toward right action. Some people believe that an inner voice already knows what you should do in life and that it already knows your purpose. Some people think they want one thing because they are perhaps told what they should want, however a nagging feeling seems to speak to a person when they are heading in a wrong direction for them. On this page reflect on what you may see yourself doing in life and why. Is for external rewards? Is it what you have been told you should do? See if you can observe any intuitive gut feelings about any of the choices. Will your choice contribute in a positive way to your community?
