Devorah smiled. “Beloveds, what I’m going to tell you today is so important, yet so opposite the way of the world, that at first you will want to deny it. Yet if you pause a moment and reflect, you will know it is something your own experience tells you is so.” An even greater hush fell over the multitude. “In quietness are all things answered, and is every problem quietly resolved. In conflict there can be no answer and no resolution, for its purpose is to make no resolution possible, and to ensure no answer will be plain. The so-called ‘adversarial system’ does not work.
“A problem set in conflict has no answer, for it is seen in different ways. And what would be an answer from one point of view is not an answer in another. Beloveds, you are in conflict. That means you can answer nothing at all, for conflict has no limited effects. Yet, has God given you a way in which your problems are resolved, a way of reaching another state of mind. It is the holy instant.
