The burden of insight is the inevitability of taking a stand
When one gains insight to what is right and true, one is inevitably compelled to take a stand. This naturally leads to conflict and division.
In this sense, the path to true peace is not the artificial absence of conflict. For Naruto fans, this is the fundamental flaw to the “infinite tsukoyomi” plan of Madara – subjecting everyone to a neverending illusion in exchange for “peace”.
Since taking a stand leads to division and conflict, the “resilience challenge” is: can our well-being withstand tension, pressure, and conflict as we constructively (but sometimes painfully) dialogue with others towards the greater good?
