Glad you noticed this website. Did you search for it? Either way, you are now well on your way to agreement and tranquility. There is neither mystery nor magic here, but rather much common sense and some science.
Two examples help to attain agreement and tranquility. Imagine yourself for a moment to be the captain of a ship. You know your position, the weather, currents and obstacles around. What you see, hear, feel, smell and taste feeds into the awareness.
Perhaps you give it some thought or other. Even while you just like where you are, enjoy the fair weather and plan to have no plan. Your thought, reflection, imagination, emotions and dreams make up the consciousness.
Then also think of yourself as a journalist, preparing a publication. In order to ever finish it, research must be limited. But poor research impairs any result. This involves a conscious decision to become aware of enough, but not everything. The awareness trap is learning enough about a subject in order to think that you get it right, but not enough to know that you are actually wrong.
You are likely not a captain or journalist by profession. Captain and journalist are just examples of course, but not random ones.
As captain, you are the person in charge. No one bosses you around.
As journalist, you speak truth to power. You research and record what you have learned today. Tomorrow you’ll read it back and you’ll see the bigger picture. The day after tomorrow, you may also see a way out.
Whatever your private or profession situation actually is, you are fully entitled to follow these examples.
Different paths can lead to your goal. There is little objection to [the noun] peace in the sense that all eight billion humans would decide overnight to become best friends. While awaiting better times you settle for being at peace.
You are the first to display a friendly demeanor. When people around you respond likewise, a tranquil exchange of opinion brings the agreement within reach.
An agreement to disagree also returns tranquility.
Before a conflict ends you can already have peace of mind yourself.
In search of agreement and tranquility, the means at your disposal are few but powerful. You have a brain processing awareness and consciousness.
The physical brain contains its mental counterpart, like a sound system contains music. The nerve impulses in the brain represent arguments, beliefs, culture and much more, like an audio file renders music.
Awareness and consciousness are not part of the brain. They are what the brain can do. Awareness and consciousness are states of mind, ranging from clueless to genius.
You can skip unraveling how the brain serves the mind, just as it is safe to use a computer without any degree in informatics. If you trust your laptop and desktop, then also rely on your ‘necktop’ computer.
More importantly, the philosophical question of why the brain generates experiences in the conscious mind, is still fiercely debated.
One may limit one’s understanding of consciousness to nature, or believe that some supernatural force must be at work in the mind. Both frames of mind include questions about origin and infinity.
Suffice to say here that barely enough awareness and imperfect consciousness, already help solve most of your own conflicts and find tranquility.
