  • An expression of conflict within the one Mind that is all minds.
  • What is commonly called war is an extreme expression – typically involving physical violence and loss of life – of the root conflict within the one Mind. As long as the root conflict persists, the full spectrum of expressions of conflict will seem to exist.
  • The root conflict within the Mind is the attempt to divide the indivisible, to create something other than Divinity/God/Source when only Divinity/God/Source is and only Divinity/God/Source can be.
  • The root conflict is the attempt to imagine a split between God and not-God. Only when it is fully recognized that all is God and all are God does the root conflict cease. Then war ceases automatically.
  • War is an opportunity to observe the imagined separation from Divinity/God/Source. The intolerability of war supports the deluded mind in releasing all ideas of separation.
  • The full recognition that all is THE SUPREME is the true end of war. Anything less is a temporary ceasefire.


  • “War will not end until you accept that YOU are THE SUPREME.”
