The war inside us
During our courses we separate people into two groups and do an exercise to show them how war started within us and how it`s reflected in the outside world. Human beings are not able to face their own violence and admit that it exists. And because we cannot do it, we invent ideas on how to change it. But ideas are not facts. If we can face the fact that violence exists within us, if we can observe it without taking any action, and without judgement, it will disappear.
When I work with people and someone has done something they do not like, it comes as that person asking me how they can change it? I say right from the very beginning, you will ask this question many times, and I will not answer, but people still ask it. But how can we change something with the same consciousness that created it? Can we, when we have a conflict with others, stop, feel and observe the war inside us?
We fail to come together and talk about the things that are happening inside us, and the war that is within us, we try to block it out. This is why, since the creation of mankind until today, we have never been able to stop this war because we are trying to do it from the outside. And the problem is not outside, it’s inside us.
