Well, I think (and this is just my opinion) that when you are faced with a dichotomy that you are having trouble with you have two choices.

1. You can recognize that the way you are thinking about it (your parents, your god etc...) may be wrong, thus leading to contradictions. So you may need some revision in your assumptions.

or

2. You can work to simply "hold" the two opposing viewpoints.

I think as humans, we really are into classifying things into neat little bundles. All good or all bad, all black or all white, all right or all wrong, all anger or all love.

I think that people like us, are even more apt to adopt this kind of thinking because in order to survive we pretty much HAD to classify things that way.

In reality life is really more of a continuum.

As adults, I think we get slapped in the face with the idea that things can't always get wrapped into neat little bundles and it causes us a lot of conflict.

Accepting the continuum, however, is the key to peace.

That's just my thoughts. I'm not perfect at it, but when I pray, that what's I pray for - just accepting the way things are.

Seldom.
