The Way Conflict Normally Goes

At our kids’ school there was some industrial action over pensions — finances are a pretty sure-fire way to get egoic minds fired up and going to battle.

‘I love myself so I’m putting this boundary in to not give too much of myself to them’

Sounds so normal doesn’t it? Someone said this to me recently and it got me thinking…We live so much of life feeling like ‘it’ or ‘they’ are out to get us, to…
