Curiosity is a challenge to decide how reality really is, to integrate views. Reconciliation is the resolving of a misunderstanding or conflict which has lead to personal alienation. It is the integration of people torn apart by different conceptions of reality and of ideals for the guidance of relationships. Reconciliation is acting creatively to bring integrity in personal relationships. Forgiveness is a step toward reconciliation and restoration of personal and communal integrity. Community is the enjoyment of personal and communal integrity. Forgiveness is acting creatively with integrity to take steps which move people towards community, even when they lack community. Education is the sharing of creative role models which promote personal and communal integrity---and so educes the creative potential of people, individually and communally. Creative role models challenge alienative traditions and taboos in ways which offer attractive alternatives to old ways which lack integrity. It is creative, and difficult, to act with integrity in doing what one has never seen another person do with integrity within a supportive community. Copying another person's group-affirmed example is easy, if the person and group did what you seek to do with both personal and communal integrity. It is far more difficult and dangerous to envision and realize new and more creative behavior, especially if the new behavior involves the transcendence of traditional taboos and/or collusions. It has not been easy for the leaders who have lead us out of the behavior patterns which have been characteristic of kings and queens with unquestioned absolute power, slavery, demonology, racial prejudice, hell-fire & damnation religion, sexual discrimination, superstitions, rampant nationalism, blind militarism, etc. For a viable world community to survive it will be necessary to be supportive of people who can show leadership in demonstrating more integrative patterns of behavior---which transcend our old taboos and collusions that are the roots of our alienations and frustrations.
