When any one aspect of a healthy life is a compulsive preoccupation of a person, the preoccupation may be either an addiction to, or a rebellion against efforts to exclude the aspect in an unbalanced way. In such instances complimentary efforts need to be made to be personally honest, balanced, tolerant, charitable, open-minded, communicative, responsive, integrated and humble. Balance is not achieved by oscillating between excess and deprivation in compulsive counter-compensations which involve fascination, guilt and shame. In healthy balance there is equanimity, serenity and peace while there is motion from one focus to another focus of a healthy life. The healthy life is characterized by freedom within a non- coercive structure which gives dynamic stability and meaning to relationships, processes, experiences, activities, memories and anticipations.
