I feel that most conflicts between people are simple misunderstandings. If you dig deep down, you would find that everyone is motivated by the same basic wants. We want to feel safe, we want to feel loved, we want to feel happy, we want to be free, we want to feel fulfillment… Once we acknowledge and understand that we all want the same things, we can work together towards achieving these states.

Some people might not be consciously aware of their own basic motivation and follow a course of action that may be inefficient of even counter-productive. I believe a compassionate, sincere and patient dialogue can bring understanding and cooperation. It may take longer in some instances, much longer even, but I feel it is simply a matter of finding the right wording or demeanour. How much effort are you willing to put into reaching resolution? Is it worth pursuing such a path when a more aggressive or confrontational approach could yield faster short term results? Choose as you will, but be aware of that decision.


An interesting experiment would be to maintain a desire in the conscious forefront for an entire day. Even to have a mantra of sorts to repeat vocally when possible, internally when necessary. Start with a simple desire. To talk to someone with whom you hadn’t in a while, perhaps. To hear a beloved song from the past. To get a cookie or something, I don’t know. The kicker is, don’t make any concerted effort to realize this innocuous pursuit. If you manage to maintain an intense focus for the duration of the day, see if your quarry doesn’t get thrown at you with escalating vehemence. The true lesson however; take note of the manner in which things unfold. Learn to choose the preferred method of realization. Follow the opportunity that is just right.



I have a lucid vision. It is agreeable, exciting. It is more than simply possible, it is imminent once one envisions it. This vision, this path, it is of a condition of utter fulfilment.

I think we got something here as a species. We can make a few adjustments and enrich our existence by orders of magnitude. A clear vision allows this. Imagine a world of equality, understanding, choice. One where we can all get what we all want without diminishing anyone else’s ability to get what they want.
