Total trust is only possible between people who are real. People who have things to hide have fears that they will be betrayed in a social context, and cannot give openly of themselves. Yet people who are real cannot give totally of themselves without fear, either. That fear is of the technocrats who cannot exist without building walls and fences, and therefore do not understand how to be open, and have trust. As so few people are real and so many have walls; the open person is ostracized for being open. This is the conflict; to be a real person, open, honest, and giving without fear, and yet be watchful, almost espionage-like in behavior with those who are not real. When taught not to be, it is difficult to be open with others, and to trust others without misgivings and doubts. And yet it is so easy to be trusting of others. There can be no pride in trust. Nor doubt. Trust must be freely given, without coercion, completely. It is the putting of lives into others' hands, knowing that life is safe. Knowing, understanding, and totally believing in the other person. Trust. There is not enough of it. Fear takes it away. Hiding facts in corners, not accepting them for what they are; part of the person. Not admitting to ones' self that something is there---means waiting in fear for the something to be found out before one's self discovers it. There is no need for that fear. And yet the technocratic society (if it can be called such) deems it necessary for that fear to be there. Relaxing and accepting the good with the bad (which are technocratic value-judgements to begin with) is one of the first steps necessary for trust to develop. Being at peace with one's self, knowing ones' self, paves the way to being open with others. It is so easy to be honest, open, and trusting. But pride, the fear of being "found out" or betrayed; all make it so difficult. Why? (Written by a new friend.) (In response to the previous essay) (c) 2005 by Paul A.
