The word conflict comes from the Latin, con fluctus meaning a flow meeting another flow. This might be the source of trouble but not necessarily. It might even be very smoothfull and beneficial. A conflict requires two partners.
To resolve a troublesome confluctus we should first examine the advantages, the benefits, the higher value attained by the confluents.
Thereafter only look at the frictions, the disadvantages or sources of unhappiness on one or the other or on both sides, see how these can be accepted, compensated or healed if necessary. This should be the basis of what is called conflict resolution.
A conflict should not be merely resolved. It should also lead to greater cooperation, even love and happiness.

WORD FOR THE DAY
We don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.
