Love and Conflict

Custer's' Last Charge (1876)

Conflict is like a war going on inside our head. When we step out of it, it becomes clear that conflict only lives for conflict’s sake. It matters not who wins or who loses, what is right or what is wrong.

Loving ourselves (the ”I’m OK, you’re OK" feeling) enables us to step out of conflict. It is a love that makes for passion and life, kindness and cooperation. There is another . . .

It’s just love we breathe in. Not of self, not of God, not of nature, not of Earth, not of anything. It comes from all quarters. In the presence of this love all conflict dissolves.

Conflict is then seen as no more than an energy of a certain frequency, where being whole and one in all that we do is paramount. How do we call this kind of love to ourselves? We ask as I do now.

The photo of you and your cats captures I think what Robert Service had in mind by Home and Love. Peace be with you Michael.

Home and Love

Just Home and Love! the words are small
     Four little letters unto each;
     And yet you will not find in all
     The wide and gracious range of speech
     Two more so tenderly complete:
     When angels talk in Heaven above,
     I'm sure they have no words more sweet
         Than Home and Love.

Just Home and Love! it's hard to guess
     Which of the two were best to gain;
     Home without Love is bitterness;
     Love without Home is often pain.
     No! each alone will seldom do;
     Somehow they travel hand and glove:
     If you win one you must have two,
         Both Home and Love.

And if you've both, well then I'm sure
     You ought to sing the whole day long;
     It doesn't matter if you're poor
     With these to make divine your song.
     And so I praisefully repeat,
     When angels talk in Heaven above,
     There are no words more simply sweet
         Than Home and Love.
Robert W Service

When we no longer sustain conflict, it dies. And then new growth can flourish . . .

I like the part "giving what you need to get." Very good. Up to now I've let people do pretty much what they want to do & it's worked out. This is something new. I'm waiting for the thunderbolts to tell me what's going on.

Love and marriage are born in heaven-
but so is thunder & lightning-the key is
learning to live with both together in the relationship.
If you give what you need to get .. you have begun up on this path.

For the Warriors who fight and Die...

so the rest of us may fight to Live.
