They seek to act sympathetically, to perform actions which show their sympathy. People who regard sympathy as a form of doing are likely to seek to act, perform, show, and use techniques to demonstrate their sympathy. Such an approach to people in need is not likely to be healthful. Meaningful sympathy is more a way of being than a form of doing, although being sympathetic may occasion action. Being sympathetic may be undermined by trying to act sympathetically, trying to perform sympathetic actions, or the use of approved techniques for showing sympathy. Meaningful being must come before doing, and be the occasion of the doing. Sympathetic acting, performance, and demonstrations which are occasioned by a sense of responsibility, duty, requirement, propriety, expectation, etc. will not flow from being, but from law. Sympathy which flows from law is not sympathy. Law can not evoke feelings. Sympathy can not be a responsibility, duty, requirement, etc. Sympathy may be evoked, repressed, suppressed, respected, welcomed, accepted, desired, etc.; but not required. The technical person who witnesses acts which are prompted by meaningful sympathy are likely to view the acts objectively and analyze them to determine the elementary constituent parts of sympathetic acts. Such analytic objectification occasions perceptions of sympathy which do not facilitate meaningful sympathy. Through such analytic objectification sympathy appears to involve sophisticated personal techniques. Such sophistication and techniques are as much a product of the objectification and analysis, as present in the observed personal relationships. The perceptions are created as much by the modality of approach to the relationships, as by the relationships which are approached. Sympathy may not be understood objectively or analytically. Sympathy is not an objective reality which may be viewed objectively. To be understood sympathy must be participated in; thus undermining objective understanding or sympathy. Sympathy is being, not doing; even though doing may flow from sympathy. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
