No Conflict, No Contest

 “Bitterness of taste is the nature of all conflict much as it is for all flavors expressing the true nature of its host. Yet for those who favor conflict their tongue is not always quite so faithful; choosing instead to season their nature in favor of a more immediate impulse.” 

Often we find ourselves in circumstances which tempt our thoughts toward actions contrary to our conscience; the more trying are often accompanied by the greater risk of expediency taking hold and thus dictating what becomes the lesser-choice-made. True, actions consistent with conscientious thought are rarely at issue when there is no contest, no challenge or temptation but then these circumstances are also infrequently accompanied by a measure of adverse consequence being imposed on another and so –No Conflict, No Contest. Yet, and I think we will agree, where both Conflict and Contest exist and we must root them out.
