Healing Art: The Law of Reconciliation
The Law of Reconciliation or the Principle of Reconciliation is that which finds in differing qualities unifying similarities that allow these differences to be brought together;
to accept the unifying qualities and diminish the differences, so that the differences in the qualities become less clashing and conflicting and the unifying qualities become more binding.This is to reconcile, to find common denominators in things that are normally seen as separative, and to emphasize and exaggerate and promote those common denominators, thus allowing the differences to fade away, or fall into proper alignment. The Law of Reconciliation allows those things which are normally in conflict to become harmonious in relationship to one another.

In Lesson 1 of Healing Arts, I made a quick discussion about Forgiveness, in this lesson we will discuss reconciliation. In life, we are faced with situations and people whom we may not like, but through the art of reconciliation, by focusing our attention on the unifying properties and not the differences. It can be something as simple as “Oh that person is human just like me,” if not then “Oh, that is a living thing just like me” if not then “Oh this thing and I both exist”, by finding common ground we create a connection. That is why if you are in a heated argument or altercation of some kind, if something is humorous that situation can usually be resolved. Humor also happens to be a great diffuser of pent-up energy.
If we can find ways to humanize, and not demonize those who we consider enemies the world would likely be a better place.
How many can relate to these moments, of vulnerability?
