I have always had a strong sense of conscience, a sense of right vs. wrong. Not Jiminy Cricket strong, not a loud annoying voice, but a knowledge ingrained on me by my religious upbringing.
For whatever reason, it has gotten stronger of late.
And I'm not talking about "not doing the wrong thing" but in fact "doing the right thing," avoiding erring by inaction. Just the feeling, as I've felt the tug and altogether ignored it so often that it's bothering me.
It led me to this question: Is it better to have a conscience and ignore its impulses or to have such a relaxed sense of right that you don't even notice yourself doing the wrong thing?
ex: You see a hitchiker in the rain. You think, "Oh, that poor man," but you drive on anyway. Is that worse than not giving him a second thought?
I'm not sure, and I can only console myself by offering prayers for those I've driven past on the road of life.
