MY SPIRIT SAYS NEGOTIATE
There are many reasons why you should negotiate, but chief among them is that you are in a state of despair. You have a number of options to negotiate. The first is not to negotiate. But if you don't, you will not advance. If you negotiate out of fear, you lose sight of what it means to win.
Negotiate to advance your position, advance the other, relate to another and state the problem of all. Ghandi understood this much more than most men. And this may be the key to his moral victory. Negotiate to first confirm the enemy. Perception rules where understanding differs. To defeat an enemy proves might not right. To negotiate advances the state of all.
However, there are those who will not negotiate, while others just want to debate. There will be need to run from evil and get out of the way of danger. For these be wise and not a must. But strange as it may seem, to negotiate gives you power over the enemy within and the peace you need to win.
