…the question must be asked: ‘What is it in me that has produced this situation? How am I a coproducer of this situation? In what way do I contribute to it?’ Again, the dualistic concept of life hinders and confuses. If one attempts to solve such a problem in an attitude of finding either the one or other person at fault, no solution exists. Neither of these two alternatives satisfies, for it must be off the mark or superficial in evaluation. True enlightenment can only come when the unconscious interaction, how one inner problem affects the other person's inner problem, is seen as interacting vicious circles. When you truly realize that the situation must be a coproduction, then you can begin to make serious headway in the right direction.
