Morals of the Clone Wars 1.9: Cloak of Darkness

Moral: “Ignore your instincts at your own peril”.

Do you ever regret doing something you did because you knew you shouldn’t do it but you did it anyway? I’m guessing that happens to most of us at some point or another. Sometimes I know I’m not supposed to buy something. Sometimes I know I’m supposed to do something¬† (like help that motorist on the side of the street), but don’t do it because it’s not convenient. All too often I do something I’m not supposed to do.

We may call that our instincts, intuition, discernment or our conscience. We’ve all got it. Usually it’s that voice that tells us not to do the wrong things. God planted it there for a reason–to guide us and keep us out of trouble. Whenever we ignore it, we do so at our own peril.

My theory is that we can probably train ourselves to hear our conscience. The more we obey it, the louder it speaks. The more we ignore it, the harder it is to hear. It’s still there, of course, but we’ve made choices that help us or hinder us. So what do you listen to–and is it helping you, or putting you in peril?
