“Follow the voice of the Cloak your Conscience and open the door to a better future”.
Following the rules below will help to attain an awakened Conscience
Overcome your fears, the fear of the unknown, and the fear of others. Don’t be against things, be for them. There is only one God, one Truth, not belonging to any particular religion or philosophy. Stop falling into the trap of all the self-interested propaganda serving only special interest groups. Be just; renounce anger and all forms of violence. Don’t feel like a victim; stop trying to appear what you are not; be who you are. Stop buying things you don’t need; exaggerated love of money is the source of all evil. Be generous; to give is more rewarding than to take. Be compassionate; the opposite of love is indifference, not hate. Be peaceful; the opposite of peace is chaos, not violence. Shed your apathy: you can make a difference. Leave your self-inflicted isolation and invest in relationships with others.
The path will not always be easy, because Conscience develops and deepens gradually. But on the way you will feel some of the physical benefits of the recovery of your real self: your immune system will work better; your blood pressure will lower, allowing you to live a longer, healthier life. And your changed relationship with others will make this a more liveable world.
I have gone through this Door myself and experienced some of these benefits when I created the first Cloak in plaster. It happened at the end of a long period of suffering due to an accident and the Cloak marked for me the end of this period and the beginning of a new era full of hope and of new-found creative energy.
