Gnostic Question of the Week
How could we know when a person has slightly awakened his conscience?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
If someone was to awaken, he would feel terribly ashamed of himself, he would immediately understand his tomfoolery, his own ridicule.
This life is frightfully ridiculous, horribly tragic, and rarely sublime.
If a boxer in the middle of a fight was to awaken all of a sudden, he would feel ashamed before the honorable public and would flee from the horrible spectacle before the astonishment of the asleep and unconscious multitudes. When a human being admits he has his Conscience asleep, you can be sure he has already begun to awaken.
Samael Aun Weor. Fundamental Education.
Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
Consciousness perceives values, virtues, qualities, if it woke up, an aggressive person would not attack, it would denote a change; an insulter would no longer dare to insult; life will be different when the human being realizes and accepts that he is asleep and gives himself the possibility of starting to wake up. Consciousness is the ability to perceive the deep essence of things, of nature, of everything.
