Mental conflict – Part 2 of 2

The mind rarely functions harmoniously because it is mostly guided and governed by forces in the subconscious…The elimination of conflict is possible only through conscious control over the forces in the subconscious. This control can be permanently attained only through the repeated exercise of true valuation in all the cases of conflict presented to the mind…[T]he solution of mental conflict therefore requires a deep search for the real meaning of life. It is only through wisdom that the mind can be freed of conflict…[T]he solution of mental conflict requires not only perception of right values but also unswerving fidelity to them.
