When you amass thoughts of conflict, you reinforce the desire to dominate. At the level of government, fear of being dominated drives you to amass weapons of death and destruction. So everyone is armed, bedeviled by fear and the lust to conquer. Sabber-rattling becomes the norm. When you go so close to the line, it takes only one misstep to cross the Rubicon.
All those accumulated thoughts, molesting all parties, can only then be released two ways: 1) dissipated through an inner change toward greater nobility, or 2) manifestation of full physical conflict reflecting the world of thoughts. For energy accumulated can only be refined or reinforced. In the world of today, #1 is a stretch. Leaving only #2. Thus, we can only feed the dragon so long before it amasses enough strength to spit flames that will consume us in conflict.
Considering the ineptitude of “leadership” today across all governments, as well as the axiom “a people can only elect their consciousness”… I recommend wearing a seatbelt and each of us personally searching the soul of the man in the mirror.
