Facing Up to Conflicts
One night I received a phone call from the authorities at the school where I taught. Word had been received that our school was to have trouble the next day. I was told I was to be assigned campus duty and a substitute would be hired to teach my classes. Two other schools had had trouble the previous week in the same city, several persons being injured and the classes canceled.
As I hung up the phone, the thought occurred, How can you prepare to meet this trouble? The answer came immediately, "You can meet it right now, for the only confrontation you can possibly have is in your own thinking."
I came face to face with the realization that because God is All there can be but one infinite Mind, God, not many limited, material minds. This stopped any belief that there could be a clash of minds. Fear and hatred were blocked by the ever-present glow of intelligent Love. I simply had to stick to the absolute truth of peaceful, perfect spiritual being and love God, my students, my neighbor, my community. This took much mental striving, but upon retiring that night I felt that the confrontation had been met in my thinking and all was at peace.
