Usually accept each other into open and honest dialogue --- as each other is --- and seek to know and understand each other as they are. 2. Rarely are embarrassed by, fearful of, or trying to change --- how each other thinks, feels or behaves. 3. Usually are seeking to be true to themselves and to each other. 4. Rarely engage in coercive, manipulative or violent procedures of any kind. 5. Usually seek to engender both personal and communal integrity through their attitudes, thoughts, dialogue and behaviors. 6. Fear engendering alienation, ignorance and misunderstanding --- more than they fear differences and non-conformity which they do not yet understand or appreciate. 7. Appreciate various open, authentic and transparent personal relationships --- more than they appreciate stable patterns of traditional, conventional and apparently respectable personal relationships. 8. Fear engendering secrecy, deception and dishonesty --- more than they fear discovering various truths about the roots of their differences, disagreements and conflicts. 9. Are more interested in resolving conflicts to the mutual satisfaction of all participants --- than in winning contests to their own satisfaction at the expense of other contestants. 10. Affirm through assumptions, attitudes, thoughts, desires and behaviors --- the importance of promoting and facilitating both personal and communal integrity, as being essentially interdependent upon each other. 11. Seek diligently to be truthful with each other and to know each other truthfully --- rather than seek to know any Truth which is absolute, unchanging and/or Divine. 12. Believe and act upon the principle that it is more helpful to accurately, reliably and honestly describe what they experience, perceive and believe --- than to prescribe or proscribe any pattern of human attitudes, thoughts, desires, fears or behaviors. 13. Seek to promote reconciliation and cooperation - --rather than speak and act in ways which promote blame, shame, guilt and alienation. 14. Regard righteousness as a quality of inter- personal relationships --- rather than as an attribute of individual isolated persons. 15. View any apparent knowledge of who is good and who is evil --- as more likely to lead people towards alienation and disintegration --- than towards reconciliation and integrative personal relationships. 16. Exchange free gifts of security enjoyed as the freedom to be safely vulnerable in open and honest dialogue. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
