Role models of great personal integrity. 2. Systems of codes, ethics, morality or law. 3. Systems of rituals, traditions or knowledge. 4. Trades, skills and coping strategies. 5. Formal professions. 6. Political, racial, religious, scientific groups. 7. Philosophical, religious or political ideologies. 8. Others not suggested here. Some people are exclusive in their dedication to some one form or particular example suggested above---believing that it alone is the one and only key to salvation. They are not integrative in their efforts and usually disintegrate themselves, others, and their communities. Other people recognize that integrative people and communities find appropriate ways of bringing together the best that is offered by each form and particular example of forms suggested above. Each of the above forms is susceptible to particular forms of perversions and heresies due to the efforts of people playing collusive games of mutual self deception in the manner of addicts and their codependent supporters. Integrative people and communities deal openly and honestly with all of the above, giving due respect and support---but not honoring or supporting ways of focusing lives which lead to personal and communal disintegration.
