We have the power to affect every moment(for better or worse) just by being there. Every situation can be improved by your participation, and altered by your presence. But there is no single answer, as to what to do. There is no single (right) action, and no specific (correct) words to say in all interactions. There may, however, be one specific way to BE, and that is LOVE.
We don't need to give a person everything they want, because we know that some of their wants will be "bad" (or harmful) for them. And, similarly, we may not want to give vodka to an alcoholic, even if we feel sorry for them (or maybe you would). We, as adults, don't give a child everything they want, we give them what they need. So the point is, we will inevitably find ourselves in situations of conflict from time to time, but, it is not the conflict that matters as much as how we react and respond to the conflict. If we respond with loving intentions, if we bring love to any situation, we make that situation just a little bit better.
As I see it, we are all spreading waves all the time, like dropping a pebble into a pond. The waves are constantly being emitted from us all the time. Tom says that we are all communicating with each other all the time, telepathically, whether we know it or not.
It takes practice to become aware of what we are thinking and feeling ALL of the time. It takes practice to become aware of what you are communicating. Thoughts are as real as rocks, and while we may not be responsible for every thought that pops into our head, we WILL (most likely) be responsible for the ones we entertain.
What kind of signals are YOU sending? What kind of thoughts are you thinking?
LOVE is the answer
