Most of the time we mistake obedience with blind following of orders from those in authority. This is not obedience, but a slavish state of mind where we do not let our own intelligence grow and develop. Real obedience is obeying the commands of conscience, judgement and the path of right behavior. We know, or should know, the right path to follow and our conscience guides us. Obeying this guidance is what we need to strive for. Obedience is unselfishness. That is the basic part of our life in camp.
