Conflict - everybody is right

I am sure that you ( just like me and I guess everybody else ) have faced a point when you had a conflict with somebody and you were involved in never ending discussions about who is right. And even if the verbal discussion has finished you were still continuing this discussion in your mind and preparing speech for the next encounter with that person with whom you were in conflict.

Within this there is one interesting question: "how come that both sides believe that they are right and they try to prove it to the other person ?".

I was facing this point many times and I was wondering how come that the other person doesn't understand me, how come that he/she doesn't see what I see ? I started to understand it when I realized that both parties operate within the polarities of the mind. I will give you an example which will help you to understand it better.

Imagine that there is an object in the middle and the sun is shining on it at the angel so that on one side it is lighter and on the other side the shade make it look darkish. Now... both persons look at this object form the distance but one person sees that the object is white ( or any other color because sun helps to see it better ) and the other person that is placed on the opposite side sees it only as dark. And the first person makes a belief within his mind that the whole object is white while the other person is convinced absolutely that the object is dark. The conflict starts because both sides form a belief that what they see is the only correct and right thing.

To be continued...
