An ivy cutting will start growing roots
all along its stem, if touched by water.

State of mind: reflective; deep thought.
Perspective: natural; structural.
Thoughts: from observations - of an ivy cutting that grew its roots, not only from the base of the stem where it was cut, but also all along the stem, at the intersections where the branches grew out its leaves.
We grow from what wounds us, but also from where we are allowed to grow. If that place is fear we grow fearful, if that place is want we grow wanting... and so on for any state of mind. Societies, too, have a state of mind.
If fear or want is to be overcome, it must be in a place where they are not familiar.
When conflict arises from fear or want, the peace must be bridged by creating an atmosphere of respect, understanding, and communication.
Questions: how can an atmosphere of respect, understanding and communication become the emphasis for interpersonal relations?
