What gets in the way of peace?
Greed. Placing blame.
The attachment to and the belief that one's point of view is the only one that should exist.
Whether in world politics, family structures, neighbors, it is all the same.
We tend to think our view of a situation, which is always skewed by ego and environment, is the only correct "answer", and we tend to need answers that suit our ego much more than we are willing to ask the right questions.
We love to place blame but how many of us look within for understanding and then act as examples.
But we sure do like the sounds of our own voices.
'xs ... back to work' and will take my one hour break : )
