Sometimes we have to feel a bit guilty to be ourselves

In family and ancestral work we say there are two consciences, our personal one and the conscience of our family system. Our personal conscience feels innocent when we follow the family rules. If we come from a family of thieves we will live by a different code than if we come from a family that works in the judicial system generation after generation. The thief will have a clear conscience because he is following his family and the ones that uphold the law might hold themselves in higher esteem and judge the thief. The greater family systems of each say they are both right in their actions because they are upholding their own family values and keeping the system in balance. We are driven in some ways by something much bigger than ourselves.
