It is fairly obvious, that there is conflict in the world because there is ruling discord in ourselves


It is fairly obvious, that there is conflict in the world because there is ruling discord in ourselves; a discord which shows itself outwards in society, in the Ego´s, and the other´s, activity.

Our images of life are filled with contradictions; that is to say: the Ego with its competitive lust and anxiety, and the other, which can be the ideal about living without conflict.

Herein there are a lot of mutual contradictory wishes, goals and initiatives.

If we are aware of this tension, we can in ourselves see how mutual contradictory desires, opposite assumptions, ideas and goals, move in separately directions.

  1. I had a conflict with a sibling earlier this week, and I could feel the ego in me taking over. I wanted to judge, I wanted to make the other wrong, I wanted to be the victim. I was hurt and I wanted to hurt back. I was observing but there wasn't anything neutral about it.
    I've heard that it is an illusion that these conflicts come from outside of us. (They come from inside us). I observed and I didn't lash out.
