The only real sin in life is to kill your own conscience. If you do not kill your conscience then you'll never commit mistakes, because your conscience will guide you wisely. But the more mistakes you commit, and the more you blame and condemn yourself, the more you hurt your conscience. The conscience is the clear mirror within you; it is not your mind, urges or your emotions. Don't allow your conscience to be enveloped by the dust of ignorance, and don't shatter or damage your conscience, but keep it clear by listening to it. The conscience is very helpful in dealing with your mind and its problems.
