Morality, conscience & people affect our decisions. How we feed our minds


Lady Justice

Justice is conscience, not a personal one but of the whole of humanity. Those who clearly recognise the voice of their own concerns usually recognise and agree with the voice of justice.

Morality is something you learn with experience. As we grow we watch and learn from others around us. We become the result of people we meet and what we learn from them. We see the consequences of any actions; if it’s supported by appreciation and or reward it becomes a good thing done or if punishment is involved it must be wrong. We learn that some things are covered by laws or rules and others are unwritten and set by society. As we grow older, and obtain more examples, our understanding and experience makes us decide if something is acceptable. That means is it morally right or wrong

Morality is presented visibly. People can judge you by your actions

Conscience on the other hand comes inside our brain. It is understanding and knowledge of right and wrong. For example if you are ask to do something and you feel something is not right or you have some guilty feeling it is your brain's sense of right and wrong trying to stop you. A clear conscience is a good defence

Conscience is only seen by you and is an internal process.

How do we feed our minds and how morality and conscientiousness and people affect our decisions?

Just as we must eat good food and do exercise to maintain our body we need to make sure we feed our brain carefully. Also we must make sure we don't use any drugs that damage our  brains.

Here are some words and other things that affect us

This is not a complete list but enough to see part of thousands of things our brain needs to sort out. No, not now, Don’t, Negative actions or negative visual signs, Lies and part truths, Myths and Misconceptions, Fake news stories, Fear, Propaganda, Social pressures, Biased information (partly true), Friends giving wrong advice; don’t tell anyone, it’s your fault, you were being stupid. Etc., Victim blaming, grooming techniques by paedophiles, Using derogatory words; mental, Slang expressions to convey stupidity, or lack of intelligence; Medical Conditions; Brain damage due to injury/illness; Use of drugs of addiction/Alcohol; Lack of sleep; Depression/Anxiety/Stress; Cultural pressures: Meditation; Unrest. Conflict & wars; Terrorism; Natural disasters; Welfare dependency

Words and other things leading to potentially dangerous outcomes

  • Danger:          Being located in a dangerous situation (unrest, wars, conflicts, terrorist threat possible, natural disaster, wild fires (bush fires), violent robbery, sexual assault, domestic violence, anywhere you feel doesn’t seem to be safe, with someone that makes you feel uncomfortable
  • Depression:  Feeling suicidal
  • Anger:            Thought of harm to others, physically fight with another in anger, hitting a vulnerable person
  • Sleep:             Lack of sleep leads to irrational thinking
  • Accidents:     Motor vehicle accidents in which the head is moved severely or hit (whiplash, concussion, bruising, cracked or opening in skull etc.)
  • Indulgence:   Excessive eating and or drinking alcohol until becoming unconscious
  • Drugs:             Consuming drugs of addiction
  • Self-Doubt:    This is when something happens that makes you think you have done something wrong, or if you did something wrong. This may just creep in but it can quickly turn into depression.  Also it can happen all by itself such as a woman after having a child suddenly become depressed.

Summary: This is a very simple blog to demonstrate how our mind tries to protect us and how we become the result of people we meet, the circumstances of our life (where we live and who takes care of us when we are children etc.) We are born with a magnificent brain that listens, feels, sees, smells and tastes everything.  Trust your instinctive self-preservation system in your brain that watches you 24/7 and never sleeps.

Make sure you don't damage your brain!
