We can heal the evil relationships only with the cooperation of, and in cooperation with the other participants, by whatever names we may call them: enemies, terrorists, infidels, sinners, murderers, rapists, unclean idolaters, thieves, robbers, fornicators, fags, pornographers, prostitutes, pimps, etc. Evil relationships lead to evil behavior and so to our conceptions of each other as evil people. So long as we conceive each other to be evil people---so long we will be unwilling and unable to cooperate with each other in healing our evil relationships. We are conceived by our relationships---be they sexual, non-sexual, familial, educational, scholarly, non- scholarly, corporate, private, political, religious, spiritual, physical, addictive, codependent, collusive, honest, dishonest, objective, reflective, reflexive, prayerful, evil, etc. Our conceptions of each other as being inherently "good" or inherently "evil" flow from our relationships which may as relationships be "good" or "evil". We conceive our relationships AND are conceived by our relationships. It is dishonest to pretend that the truth is simpler and more exclusively dichotomous than we often try to make the truth appear to be. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
