Our ideals and values often make us unhappy with our status quo, and we rarely know how to creatively modify our ideals and values so that they will lead us into living balanced lives full of vitality, healthy, energy, creativity and completeness. We need ideals and values which will lead to their own evolution in balanced and integrative ways---rather than to debilitative dissatisfaction, criticism, judgmentalism, rejection, alienation, estrangement, and disintegration. When our ideals and values lead us to the petrifaction of our ideals and values, we are in a petrified prison without integrative ideals and values to illuminate the way out of our prison. If our ideals and values lead us to some form of dissatisfaction without at the same time leading us to an appropriate form of hope; our ideals and values are misleading for us and we need to changed them---but in keeping with what new ideals and values? We need integrative transcendent ideals and values which are not petrified and which lead us to deal openly, honestly, and in balanced ways with the new contexts, situations, challenges and opportunities as they come our way. The articulation of such reflexive ideals and values is something which our traditional scholars and scientists have not been prepared to do. In fact their traditional programs of preparation make it difficult for them to conceive just what new insights and attitudes might be required in order to be able to articulate such reflexive ideals and values.
