About the Book
The sage may say: War and Peace. An analyst probably may make it a triad: Tension, War, and Peace. And a healer may modify the triad: Tension, Diffusion, and Peace. Conflicts are in the nature of things, and is composed of related and opposing duals like yin and yang. Conflicts are a productive force and are the sources of all progress. War is not a necessity and can get bypassed by a suitable tension diffusive mechanism. These concepts apply equally well to the external world as well as to our inner, mental, psychic world. We all wish to avoid conflict and be at peace forever. But is that possible? Think for a moment! It is not merely possible, but mostly feasible. All we need is diffusing tension mechanisms.
Art is the device to diffuse the tension built up by the conflicts in mind and transform it into a productive force. Of all the art forms, writing, prose, or poetry, is the most versatile and influential and reaches a broad audience with the least gap in communication. Hence it's healing, elevating, ennobling, and transforming power is substantial.
