"Worried too much" is the norm. Conflicts often arise from different thoughts, and it is common for them to fight each other before a balance situation. As soon as one thought arises, the other immediately suppresses it, repeating in mind again and again like a battle circle. Therefore, the thinking gradually became rigid while you’re trying to figure it out with your own limited thinking ability, till your mentor came and guided you out.
思想的衝突很耗心神，有些事想破頭也不見得有結果。自己看不透還好，兩人要溝通更有難度。幸運的話暫時有個休戰，存而不論已經不錯；但一有差錯弄巧成拙，彼此互相傷害也是常有的事。腦筋已打結，不想努力了……是否累到想躺著休息，或是乾脆舉手投降，說個Love & Peace？
Conflicting of thoughts makes you exhausted, but not everything turns into a result even you racked your brain figuring it out. Comparing with thinking by oneself, It is more difficult to communicate each other and turn into a consensus. Luckily, there would be a temporary truce with no communication, or else it would go ugly and both sides would be hurt. By that time, you just would like to space out, give up or even lie down and do nothing... or even just raise your hand and say, “Love & Peace”?
Organizing all clues after self-confusion, may bring you some growth that you have never expected. A human body is like a small universe with factory-set programs: "Develop, Maintain, Decline, End." These four stages are constantly repeating in circulation, just like the four seasons of nature, which happen as a matter of course. It must have ever come across your mind like: It seems to be something happened and made me changed after one year past, however you are not that sure if this “something” can be told. It is just because that something actually has done the change inside you. In the universe of "you".
It sounds mysterious but true. A human brain is another universe. After your battle of self-examination passing through the turning point, you seemed to have realized something. Suddenly, a bright road widely appeared in front of you and made it such easy to walk through. A god-alike man is like everything is clear in his mind and well-planned. Meanwhile, all questions are redirected to one answer: “Settle your heart well.”
Some saying that: "The flag didn't move, it’s your heart moved." The flag blowing by the wind but it’s not actually moving, your heart making it moved. The world is just explained by you and your heart, the scenery that catches your eyes would be projected in your heart, and the “world” would be formed into whole-appearance by your heart and mind. If you understand, the solution to all conflicts is coming along: Those conflicts don’t belong to the world, they belong to your heart.
This is the peace inside that comes from the sum of all contradictions and conflicts. The level is too high to understand by mortals, but we can still aim at this and encourage each other to put efforts on it. It’s already quite good to calm our hearts into peace in daily life. In fact, the conflict between human beings has never subsided. It could be raging in another distant country, so we should be glad that we’re such lucky to live safely at this moment. Is it boring? For some others, it may be a treasure in their dreams.
Finding out beautiful things in life is a graceful ability, and this ability can be learned by practicing. Conflicts would not disappear easily, but they would always pass. Which would be left for us are freedom, comfort, and the peace of mind. May you believe that happiness will certainly come in ordinary days. It might not be exactly what you thought previously, but you do have the ability to find and tell it through your own self-conflicts.
Because who you are today is certainly different from who you were in the past.
