The Lord resides where there is no conflict. I am giving you this guarantee. All conflict can be resolved through the right use of intellect and understanding. Even if you do not know anything else, explain to your spouse, 'with clash and conflicts, God will leave our home. Therefore, let us both resolve never to have any conflict.' After such determination, if any clash occurs then know that it is beyond your control. For that, be repentant. A single life lived without conflict, brings one closer to moksha.
In the current time cycle of Kaliyug bickering and clashing starts at the time of breakfast, so what remains to be said about the rest of the day? Even in the past time cycles of Satyug, Dwapar and Tretayug, conflicts were present in the homes of prominent people. Even people of purity, such as the Pandavas, spent their entire lives planning a battle with the Kavravas. Shri Ramchandraji, who was exiled in the forest, had nothing but conflict and friction from the time Sita was abducted, to the point of the Ashvamegh Yagna. Nevertheless, they all overcame conflicts in their lives with spiritual knowledge, and that verily was their special power.
The prime source of all conflicts in life is misunderstanding. "You are the root cause of all your miseries." This statement by Dadashri divulges the very root cause of all miseries with such profoundness, that no one could ever imagine.
If a person continues to paddle his boat of life without deciding on his destination, how will he ever embark upon the right course? He will become fatigued from paddling, give up, and ultimately drown halfway, in the ocean. Therefore, it is very necessary to first, decide the destination. Life without a goal is synonymous to letting an engine run idle. If you want the ultimate goal, then liberation should be that goal. However, if you want something in between, but you do not have happiness in your life, then at least make your life free of conflicts.
