How to Stop a War

If you want to stop a war, you have to stop your pain, your version of the war. You have to relate with your own antagonism, your own innate war between you and your projections. If you solve that problem and relate with that transmutation process, then it will become much easier to solve the problem existing on the diplomatic or international level. We look at national or international things so much in terms of our own projections that we lose track of the actual political situation.

From “The Razor’s Edge,” in Orderly Chaos: The Mandala Principle, page 25.
