This is true if the person serves "exclusivity" as the primary master. What if the person does not serve "exclusivity" as the primary master, and if in addition the person seeks to serve two masters, neither of which serves "exclusivity" as a master? Is it still a "law of nature" that it is impossible to serve two masters? Is it a different question than "Can a person serve two masters?" In what way are the two questions different? To answer this last question may be enlightening. Perhaps what is true is that it is impossible to serve two masters each of which demands exclusive dedication, or if the servant has internalized the requirement upon self that self be exclusive in dedication to one master. The impossibility may originate in a dedication to exclusivity on the part of master and/or servant. Any dedication to balance is lost when there is a dedication to exclusivity. People who are dedicated to exclusivity tend to be unbalanced people, for to them being balanced involves serving more that one master, so it is impossible for them to achieve meaningful balance and the personal integrity which flows from living a balanced life. Exclusivity as the primary master offers no guidance or motivation towards living a balanced life, and is in fact antithetical to doing so. The person who is dedicated to exclusivity becomes the victim of whatever narrow focus s/he happen to be lead into by accidental circumstances. Such a person has no basis for a transcendent evaluation of competing claims for exclusive dedication. The person who is dedicated to Love and Love's work of promoting dialogue knows ways of living balance lives which are not entrapping. A dedication to the promotion of dialogue offers a way out of exclusivity and the unbalanced lives which exclusivity occasions. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
