On Conflict - The War with Iraq
When one side needs their dream to be RIGHT. . .

The Toltecs teach us that everyone is dreaming their own personal dream, based on their beliefs and the unique way they interpret reality.

Conflict occurs between mates, parents and children, nations, friends, neighbors or lovers when there is not mutual respect for the beliefs of the other. When one side needs their dream to be RIGHT, they must make the other wrong. Since nobody wants to be wrong, each must fight to be right. In the fight to be right, there are no winners.

Can you, today, respect those who believe differently than you, and be free from conflict with them? Even their beliefs about war? Nobody is wrong, because everyone is dreaming their own personal dream, and that reality is perfectly right for them. (Note: Accepting someone's dream does not mean that you like it or want to have lunch or a war with them!). And can you love and accept all of the different dreams and belief systems that live inside your own mind? Each has its own story, and if each is respected you will end the conflict that lives inside of you. An end to the conflicts in our own minds will surely lead to an end to the conflicts in your world. As within, so without.

Blessings in these challenging times.
