Triangle to peace....
What it leaves is no baggage, no residual resentments and no bad blood. It opens new thought trends and moves one out of the box where new opportunities abound.
So life doesn't have to be complicated, we just allow it to get that way and wallow in it. The solutions and alternatives are there, we need to avail ourselves of them.
It's about changing your immediate response in a conflict situation. Hard!. Our usual communication and work process itself takes tweaking. In our fast track lives, slowing down a tad in order to do this is an exercise that requires meditative action. Tougher !.

It's a good read for me, the stubborn (my nemesis for now), the righteous, the myopic, the moderator, the quarrelsome(same nemesis) and the leader. I have a colleague I'm always (everyone else seems too) bumping heads against, she 'll be the best person for me to practice this on. .
I especially like the idea that I have a reptilian portion of brain left in me, that explains alot ...:).
