True lovers do not long remain at war within themselves or among themselves over unresolved conflicts between/among conflicting ideals and values. They seek to understand the conflicts between/among their ideals and values---so as to be able to resolve their conflicts within the context of security known as the freedom to be safely vulnerable in open and honest dialogue about human differences. True lovers seek to find what they can agree upon--- and cooperate in terms of their agreements and enjoy the sweat fruits of cooperation. True lovers are not compulsively and/or contentiously preoccupied with what they do not agree about---for such preoccupations bear bitter fruits. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
