Dichotomous controllers see situations as entailing only alternatives between doing the "right" thing---and doing the "wrong" thing; doing "good" or doing "evil". If another person chooses to do other than what the dichotomous controller regards as the "good" thing; it is automatically regarded as the "evil" thing. For to dichotomous controllers in each situation there can be only two alternatives; the "good" and the "evil". In truth life is full of continuous spectrums of good things which we may chose to do in expression of God's Love. The important choices are not between only two alternatives which somebody has labeled as "good" and "evil". The important choices entail selecting from among a spectrum of alternatives which may or may not fit our talents, circumstances, resources, opportunities, dispositions, etc. Sometimes the choice which best fits us is to rest and be renewed so that we will be fit to work on another day. Often dichotomous controllers do not permit that alternative to be chosen---in spite of the spirit of the commandment to rest one day a week. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
