Yet, insensitive passion which is not mutually shared with balance and justice often does great damage and harm. Passionate people too often coerce and manipulate others-- -who do not truly share their passion and energy---and thereby they generate much alienation and many evil relationships. Passion without humility and compassion leads to violence. Compassion entails feeling (with each other) each other's passion and pain. Compassion leads to cooperation, not violence. Passion without compassion leads to violence, rape and disintegration characterized by indifference to each other's feelings and desires. Idealists are often passionate in the service of their own ideas, ideals and values---but too often lack the compassion and personal understanding to insure that their passion is guided by true love rather than by dishonest fanaticism. Idealists are often more concerned with their own ideas, ideals, values, principles, rules, and regulations---than with each other's feelings and desires. They are less concerned that their behavior be consensual than that it be abstractly correct. People who are engaged in consensual behavior have a mutual sense of where each other is, what sensations each other has, how each other feels, and a consensus about what each other wants. Such awareness and knowledge is as important to them as is knowing what is the "correct" thing to do. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
