Conflict Resolution

From New Message from God Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

"To begin to resolve conflict, the first step is awareness and acceptance. Until this occurs, there is nowhere to go. There is nothing to improve. Many people are not even at this starting point. They have great difficulty accepting the conflict within their own lives and their immediate circumstances. Tell the truth about this. Do not embellish it. Do not diminish it. Simply tell the truth about it. If things are not right, they are not right. If things do not work, they do not work. If people are not productive, they are not productive. If people do not get along, they do not get along. If you are not at peace, you are not at peace. That has to be your starting point."[1]

Directives

"For there must be an end to human conflict now. Everything must be saved and preserved in a world of declining resources and growing population. Everything must be used wisely, purposefully, with this future in mind. Nothing can be wasted now, you see, for you are drinking from a slowly shrinking well." [2]

You "must meet things face to face, head on. This is a great challenge, but this is what redeems people. This is what elevates a race. This is what calls upon human wisdom, ingenuity, skill, dedication and cooperation." [3]

"It is the Will of Heaven that humanity will grow up, emerge out of its reckless and contentious adolescence to become the wise stewards of this world, to preserve the life-giving resources of this world and to become a free race in a universe where freedom is rare and is rarely valued. It is the Will of Heaven that you end your ceaseless conflicts, for you cannot afford to destroy your peoples and your cities now. You will need all the resources of the world, all the resources that you have, to contend with the Great Waves of change that are coming." [4]

"Human conflict is wasting you away. Ignorant, foolish and unaware of what exists at your borders, human conflict is wasting you away. It is time for humanity to mature, to grow up, to realize you are living in a Greater Community of life—a Greater Community you cannot control, a Greater Community that is beyond your efforts, your technology and even your comprehension." [5]

"The Revelation gives the individual tremendous power, but also tremendous responsibilities. If you are guided by the power of Knowledge within yourself, the deeper intelligence that God has placed within you, then there can be no violence or war and conflict. There is only the effort to create positive and mutually beneficial arrangements with others." [4]
