Defusing Conflict with Compassion

When we are in conflict with someone, it is easy to feel that they are irrational or even evil, which only makes things worse. Through training in compassion, however, we can learn to see them as human beings with their own perspective and experiences. We don’t have to go along with their wishes, but if we develop this kind of compassion our conflict will often dissolve. Even when we can’t agree, we’ll be able to have a more peaceful, positive mind.

Buddha’s teachings can help: simple, practical methods for developing the kind of compassion that can turn an enemy into a friend. It’s amazing what it possible when we use these methods.
