Thousands of years ago, King Solomon loved the Lord and earnestly prayed: “Therefore give to your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil” (I Kings 3:9). Clearly he wanted a balance of thoughts and emotions that would give him the wisdom needed to be an effective leader of his people. The phrasing of Solomon’s prayer to God suggests an assumption that a good conscience would be located in his heart, that this is where he would receive the Lord’s influx. To this day, people speak of feeling love in their hearts, while they consider the brain to be the location of human thoughts. But where does the Lord actually conjoin Himself with us? Does He meet us in the conscience, where we “discern between good and evil,” and is that the same as the seat of the soul? “Conscience is a new will and a new understanding received from the Lord and so is the Lord’s presence with a person” (AC 4299).
