Choices of Energetic Response: Conflict

energetic-conflict

Conflict energy sits in the Northwest. This energy works with dualities such as good versus evil and right versus wrong. Conflict energy is set up by the rules created by a society to get a consensus of boundaries of conformity. These boundaries, the do’s and don’ts, rights and wrongs, formulate and contain conflict.

Within conflict, one finds the illusion of freedom. If I am caught in “I’m right and you are wrong,” I am under the illusion that I am free because I need not consider your views as valid. When we use conflict in the dark, we approach it as an obstacle and it breeds victims and defeat.

However, conflict isn’t a negative thing in itself. How conflict is perceived determines whether it is seen as a challenge or an obstacle. We need conflict in order to grow. If there was no conflict, we would be bored. Seeing conflict as necessary for growth, and therefore as a challenge, breeds excellence and evolution. In nature, we see conflict behavior as a challenge wherever predator and prey behavior is exhibited. Within that natural hierarchy, predators only hit on weak or sick prey. Alpha/beta behavior is an example of conflict that is necessary for the survival of a species.

Controlled Dreaming, the Want to Be’s

Moving to the North, the second category of Controlled Dreaming are the Want to Be’s. They are the substance of this wheel. They have no definition of themselves. These are “dreamers” who are at the effect of the perceptions of others. They look to others for emotional approval, mental recognition, physical security, spiritual acceptance, and sexual identity. They are the extras on the crew of life’s screen play Guild. They are awake, but caught in the belief system that conforming to the standards of the social, political, and religious mores of the time is what makes life a reality.
