Crisis is part of life. Handling crisis with a peaceful mind, without losing focus on the internal freedom and peace is the art of spirituality. Situations of life tells us where we stand based on our capacity and how we handle it.
Confrontational – This is handling a situation in a confrontational way. The facets of this are anger, anxiety, revenge, prolonged enmity, gossips and fights.
Understand, discuss, patience, look at it from all angles, bring conflicting people into clarity of situations, improve situations, love, refusing to be dragged into politics, always staying neutral and dharmic, non-confrontational, no-ego.
