Day 240: War and Peace
War and Peace
There’s a really good method that is available to everyone when it comes to resolving conflict – it is called ‘communication’, this is when people use words to express what is happening to them, and then they listen to one another, and they try their best to understand what it must be like to be, so to speak, standing in the shoes of each other. So when things break down between people, and communication is not working then a reasonable step to take would be to look at what aspects of communication are not functioning very well, because communication has simple components – speaking words, listening, and imagination of what is being conveyed.
In speaking words, are there enough words available? Is there some kind of a shortage here, because we know that when we run out of words, it is frustrating, and in our frustration the next resort is to try and use our bodies to physically express with mannerisms and gestures and noises. It is like we want to go into blame of our physical predicament and stamp our feet, or slam the door, or do anything to try and make our point, or to emphasize how important this point is to us, this point we find so difficult to express, or to put across, or be understood.
In listening, are we actually listening to the words of the other person, and not putting words into their mouths to suit ourselves, or instead of simply hearing, we are listening to the voices in our minds, or our interpretations of their intentions? And in our imaginations, how and what for are we using our imagination – to assist and support ourselves in understanding what is being said, what is the position of the other, what the actual problem is, or are we using it to distort the reality of what is going on, to assist and to support and feed our own personal experience of righteousness?
Where the need of the experience of righteousness supersedes the need for a solution, then communication as a means of resolution is given up. Instead there is assertion and competitions to over-ride each other’s shouting, there is no space at all, no listening, no hearing, but a battle of strength and loudness to eventually get the last word, and then there is an eagerness to slam the door, to break the phone, to damage the face.
How common sense is lost, and conflict escalates from reason and discussion and platforms of respect into emotion and eventually into mind possession – this how – is surely a matter of education – because even children at school can be shown how to stand in each other’s shoes, to imagine what it must be like to be in the position of the other, how to stand and breathe, and come back down from emotional possession. And this point of education also – that we can be introduced into this reality with an extensive and practical vocabulary, that we can express ourselves, that we can articulate our thought, that through exchange of words, we can easily return to the platform of what we share as life.
Imagining up a god of righteousness, it follows that our personal experience of righteousness is essentially a spiritual act, and that our god being absolute, then our righteousness is absolute – then there is no compromise – we have chosen a promontory to walk that leads to conflict, and imagination has invaded and occupied and over-ruled our physical lives.
When Jesus spoke of the ‘peace that passeth understanding’, this peace was not defined as an opposite to war, not as a polarity, it was the peace of common sense of people coexisting in and as the physical reality living the realization of our equality as life, as custodians of all life on Earth as what is best for all.
EQAFE: ‘The Crucifixion of Jesus’, has been a great support to me because hear within these interviews, presented through the Portal, the actual teachings of Jesus, rather than the ones that were to be, after his death, tweaked and twisted into the four approved versions of his life as the Gospels. How the political message of Equality and the reality of Equality and Oneness were skewed into a religious mantra so as to suit the interests of the system.
