Could be and more conditioning about you, just got relieved through Rick. Is not physical violence result of psychological violence? bullets and wounds and armies just instruments of psychological war between some individuals, manifesting out.... Thinking itself is violence..Thinking is war gb

Iremember having shared this view with you. Even if we communicate clearly, we are talking to ourself only. if this is clear and understood we will be in the state of observation only and further if we talk, it is like the third friend asking to to keep quiet:) gb
