Conflicts are quite natural and sometimes even necessary for people to learn and grow.
What is not natural, is for an individual, a couple, or a group of people to keep going through the same conflict over and over again without learning the lesson and finding a solution or compromise. Barriers to resolutions can be stubbornness, selfishness, self deception, conceitedness, prejudice and pride! Most people want a peaceful life, and ongoing conflicts or disputes are like poison to the mind and only lead to negativity and sadness.
If you are personally conflicted about something in your life, or if you and a friend, family member or partner are going through a conflict and you need someone to help you find a solution, please feel free to contact me, so we can work it out together. But make sure that you, and whoever else is involved in the conflict is totally ready face the issues at hand humbly, sincerely, honestly, with an open mind and the willingness to embrace a new way of seeing things from a different viewpoint.
Like they say’ “where there’s a “will” or willingness, there’s a way!”
The wise and effective solution of any problem demands that the mind shall be free from bias, passion, and all other purely personal prejudices which might interfere with the disinterested survey of the actual factors that go to make up the problem presenting itself for solution. The solution of life problems requires courage and sincerity. Only honest and brave individuals are able to follow valiantly through the perplexing and confusing maze of living to where the logic of a fearless mind may lead. And this emancipation of the mind and soul can never be effected without the driving power of an intelligent enthusiasm which borders on religious zeal. It requires the lure of a great ideal to drive man on in the pursuit of a goal which is beset with difficult material problems and manifold intellectual hazards. 160:1.8
Unresolved conflicts destroy unity and may terminate in mind disruption. 133:7.12
Religious living is devoted living, and devoted living is creative living, original and spontaneous. New religious insights arise out of conflicts which initiate the choosing of new and better reaction habits in the place of older and inferior reaction patterns. New meanings only emerge amid conflict; and conflict persists only in the face of refusal to espouse the higher values connoted in superior meanings. 100:4.1
This worshipful practice of your Master brings that relaxation which renews the mind; that illumination which inspires the soul; that courage which enables one bravely to face one’s problems; that self-understanding which obliterates debilitating fear; and that consciousness of union with divinity which equips man with the assurance that enables him to dare to be Godlike. The relaxation of worship, or spiritual communion as practiced by the Master, relieves tension, removes conflicts, and mightily augments the total resources of the personality. And all this philosophy, plus the gospel of the kingdom, constitutes the new religion as I understand it. 160:1.12
