Question: In psychology, conflict is defined as a contradiction, a lack of agreement, between two or more parties. Conflicts exist not only between civilizations, states, nations, religions, but also within a person himself. Especially now when the world is in crisis.
How would you define conflict? What is its essence? Are there conflicts in nature?
Answer: The entire nature of our world is built upon conflicts, upon the combination of two opposites, to what extent, being against each other, they can win, influence, destroy, or, conversely, be in a certain balance. If you think about whether it is possible at all to exist outside of conflicts, then you can come to the conclusion that nothing can be done, this is our life, and we must be in greater and greater disagreement among ourselves until the end of time.
However, the wisdom of Kabbalah does not think so. It says that, on one hand, our nature is a terrible egoistic desire of each and everyone to rule over others, which is the cause of all kinds of conflicts. But, on the other hand, we have the opportunity to educate ourselves so that from these opposites we can reach mutual agreement, and over all conflicts stretch a network of connections, as it is written: “Love covers all transgressions.” Then we can live on good terms with each other.
We could never achieve this. To be honest, we have not even tried to implement this technique. But it does exist.
