Violence Suppression or Transformation and Healing?
Are we trying to suppress violence or are we looking at transformation and healing?
Violence cannot be suppressed. It will come up in many other ways in our relationships.
We cannot do this if we don’t know how to handle the violence within ourselves. Violence is a manifestation of fear, depression, loneliness. The person in charge of suppressing violence may have a lot of hatred, fear, and despair within himself.
We have to reconsider the approach. We must bring a spiritual dimension to where we have been working and solving problems.
The desire to remove violence and terrorism is a good desire. It is authentic, legitimate.
The means that we use to remove violence and terrorism should be effective.
Using violence to suppress violence creates more violence. Not only in relationships but in society.
We know this, we’ve seen it time after time only understanding and compassion can neutralize violence.
As you have seen in your own city, meeting violence with violence creates more hatred, more enemies, more terrorists. This is clear.
We have allowed the situation to become what it is now. The situation is a collective creation and calls for input from all.
