The “intrinsic conscience” is "based upon the un­conscious and preconscious perception of our own nature, of our own destiny, or our own capacities, of our own 'call' in life. It insists that we be true to our inner nature and that we do not deny it out of weakness or for advantage or for any other reason."[1]
