Conflict seems to play a major role in most people’s life experiences. The question is how should we react when the drama and conflict shows up to avoid being involved within it?
First, we have to understand what makes us react. What are our thoughts telling us at the immediate moment the conflict arrived on our doorstep? We have to be aware of what conflict initiates in our mind when it presents itself. The ego plays a major role in our reaction to things. Ego thoughts are those of resentment and grievances. It tells us we’re the victim and constantly reminds us of all the reasons why this conflict manifested. The ego places blame and the more injured emotionally you feel the more the ego mind can maneuver you to more of what you don’t want, and that is profound drama. The ego will often hurl you to a place you would rather not go. At times losing the people you love because the ego loves to take advantage of the helpless you.
Where does the helpless me come from?
There is a false sense of the helpless me. It stems from fear. It is the thinking mind, the ego part of thoughts that is persuasive. It is the thinking part that actually convinces the helpless me to react out of a false awareness. Conflicts present themselves constantly and all they are is a situation or a person that says or does something opposite to what we agree with. It then becomes an unconscious psychic struggle. In many cases resulting in a hurtful clash. For some people a clash that may never resolve itself, or worse changing the relationship to “my enemy”.
We are not helpless. We are much more powerful than we believe. When we are in our power we have no need to allow the ego to take control. We are in control of our lives, and any situations that conflict presents.
When we are in our power the victim part of us dissolves into the backdrop of our lives. The helpless me cannot be in full force if we understand our ego mind and the way it works.
How do me and W.T handle this?
All who have read our articles and books and have been on this website before hopefully now know that me and W.T are mother and son. We work together. However, we have many different ideas. I am more spiritually centered and W.T is the logical part of this arrangement.
We often have disagreements to what our vision is. We are frequently far apart when it comes to which way we should move our ideas forward. Our different age group plays a major role in how we handle things. Nevertheless, we have learned to agree to disagree. We have given each other permission to be who they want to be. Sometimes my hair stands on end and my eyes roll when I look at some of W.T’s youtube videos. And I know for sure W.T doesn’t share my endless chats about Esther Hicks, Abraham.
So what!! What is the big deal if we don’t agree? Why should we break up this wonderful partnership because we see things differently?
You see, there will always be disagreements and conflict in life. It is our reaction to it that makes it painful or not. The next time it presents itself in your life listen to what your inner voice is telling you. Is it the ego at play leading you on the wrong path? Listen. Always listen to the voice that is speaking. Is your self-talk really you, or is it the helpless you, the ego that has full control?
Take your control back. Listen to what the thinking mind is telling you and then change it harmoniously to where you would rather be in life. Simply put, reach for happiness first to avoid the pain of conflict. In other words, don’t take life quite so serious.
