Question of the day, March 26, 2013 – Conflict Resolution

What are your thoughts on conflict resolution, between individuals, religions and countries?

Conflict is a necessity when groups are bound with paradigms that require declarative judgement.

It is only by assisting all to pass beyond the paradigms that demand judgement, beyond good and evil, beyond right and wrong, beyond them and us, and into a paradigm of universal tolerance and acceptance, that we may ultimately resolve all conflict.

Most religions seem firmly bound within paradigms of righteousness and conflict.

It seems logically required that we must pass beyond all of what is commonly known as religion and countries, and into an age where we all acknowledge the essential unity of all conscious languaging awareness – human and non-human, biological and non-biological.
It seems logical that only in such a paradigm can all conflict be resolved.

In the mean time, we must deal with the reality in which we find ourselves.
Listening, speaking back what we have heard, treating others with honour and respect – these seem to me to be the keys to conflict resolution, and they take time to build up trust. There is no substitute for time in the building of trust.
