Conflict Resolution

START
Conflict resolution

World conflicts have genuine reasons and roots which cannot be overlooked.

Even so, with the world as it is, we cannot afford to indulge in conflict, neither allow its causes and effects to develop too far. As long as there are explosions and atrocities, the subtler issues and sensitivities of humans and nature cannot be addressed. We must find other ways.

Conflict obstructs and delays the resolution of vital world issues, diverting attention and resources from greater and wider needs. There is more to life than this.

This site addresses humanity's unconscious, basic, bottom-line feelings, from which conflict and its resolution arise. It rummages around in the heaving globs of fermenting gunk hidden underneath.
Healing the Hurts of Nations contains suggestions and perspectives to help clarify how, realistically, we might help turn a quagmire into fertile ground, and what we ourselves can individually do toward this.

To figure this out or sharpen it up, it helps to survey the big picture and place ourselves somewhere in it. I hope this site, and the book it's derived from, help you find your location.

Once you've found it, keep it moving, for reality is not a fixed thing, and nowadays it's quite good at doing backflips and side-swipes. So, we need to be prepared to review our beliefs and habits whenever life presents us with options or imperatives to do so.
