1. JUST STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING
Stop fighting, bombing, tunnelling, shelling, settling, hurting, bullying, maiming and killing. Stop thinking you're superior, inferior, hard-done-by, victims, oppressed, entitled or somehow different.
2. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT
If it's not working, do something different. Madness is the practice of repeating the same thing over and over again and hoping for a different result. "If you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you've always gotten."
3. LET GO YOUR ATTACHMENTS AND DEMANDS AND BURY YOUR EGOS
As long as each side keeps insisting that it's right and remains attached to the same ideas and demands, nothing can change. Just let go. What have you to lose? The way you're going, you have your lives to lose.
4. RE-ENGAGE WITH YOUR HUMANITY
See the other for what he or she is: a human being with needs, relationships, family, children and capable of loving and being loved, JUST LIKE YOU. It's hard to kill someone if you can hold him or her as you hold yourself, rather than as the enemy or someone to be extinguished.
5. GET OFF YOUR RESENTMENT
When you see the TRUE cost of your resentment - loss of relationships, death, illness, destruction, loss of normality, loss of your humanity, disconnection from others, yourself and God - you might then stop harbouring ill will towards your neighbour and realise that the resentment is killing you, not your neighbour.
6. RE-CONNECT WITH GOD
Amazingly, it's the same God to whom you are both apparently turning for help. If you truly believe that God is good and that you are made in God's image, you surely cannot believe that you are carrying out God's will by decimating each other? Your actions are not those of a benificent God. Your behaviour is the greatest disservice you can do to your God. Stop it!
7. LOOK AROUND YOU
Is this carnage truly what you all want? If not, is this really what you are willing to do, truly the way you want to live and honour your lives in order to get what you want? At some point you need to say: Enough is enough!
IT'S ALL POSSIBLE, but only you can bring about peace, if you so choose.
