War… What is it good for?


Maria’s Midweek Mindfulness 


The Wednesday Whisper

Absolutely nothing

I know nothing of and do not involve myself in geopolitics. I don’t pretend to understand how people with bigger toys to throw out of the pram decide who is the bad guy and who deserves to be attacked. In the world I see a gathering of unhealed children in grown-up bodies with access to weapons that are beyond their emotional age, applying an adversarial process in the hope of shutting down the children who mirror the wounds and reveal the suffering that seeks healing.

Healing is not something we fight for. Healing is a state of being that requires us to model love, mercy and compassion. Winning a war is not peace, it is gaining compliance by force and covering up the wound.

In fact, from my point of view, war is the ultimate form of conflict avoidance.

Maria’s Mindfulness Moment

The same process applies in families, workplaces and communities. It’s just that the access to weapons is different.

Who have you been at war with? How did it end?
