What don’t people understand about what K says is conflict? He is not talking about a conflict we might have and relate to an insult, disappointment, disagreement, or misunderstanding. The conflict we may perceive is not the conflict with someone, about something, or the results you may feel. This may all be happening, but he is pointing to the deep conflict within the human being.
We are aware of conflict in the way we live, and this is what concerns us. We may approach conflict with this day to day understanding, and think we need to find a deeper understanding of conflict that can be identified. But looking at all the various factors is not actually looking at this deeper conflict.
The conflict is in the division we have in our way of thinking. I, me, you, self, ego, psyche, all these take a position in the mind, and from an internal point of view, we look at the world, externally. I look at the world of things and with thought I name things. It is a separateness from the world and separated, I am in a conflict I want to solve, and with this thinking, I cultivate conflict.
In the Teachings there are lots of insights into conflict. I can’t provide anything better, than to point out the way of thinking about conflict is wrong, and to recommend a serious reading of the teachings. But we have to drop the approach of the thinker who can examine all the words and ideas, produce a legible understanding, and with this have made some progress. The beginning is in not knowing, completely, mentally, psychologically, emotionally, what comes next.
