They would threaten our collusive games of mutual self-deception which are of ultimate importance to us; e.g., our collusions regarding: complex relationships, human limitations, limited resources, addictions, codependence, death, etc. 2. They would embarrass us in ways which we are not mature enough to deal with gracefully; e.g., in regards to sexual relationships, failures, ignorance, confusion. 3. Our language skills and vocabulary are not adequate to facilitate the articulation of the insights and understandings; e.g., inadequate mathematical skills. 4. We are operating under assumptions and/or beliefs which are contrary to the new insights and understandings; e.g, regarding earth's geography and origins, astronomical evolution, biological evolution, elements, compounds, space, time and matter. 5. We are prejudiced, misinformed, confused, or operating in terms of misinterpretations and limiting attitudes --- in ways which block our acceptance of the new insights and understandings. 6. We are engaged in contentious debates, battles, conflicts and/or relationships which distract us and/or make us feel threatened by the new insights and/or understandings. 7. We are insecure, defensive, and/or fearful of growth and change, and experience new insights and understandings as threats to our efforts to achieve security and/or salvation for ourselves and/or those nearest and dearest ones. 8. We are operating within exclusive paradigms and are prone to over-specialization, "either/or" thinking, dichotomous questioning, rejecting "different" people; e.g., not ever having seen respected models of people accepting new insights/understanding and ourselves being fearful of being rejected as "different". 9. We insist upon achieving new insights and understandings on the basis of our merit and work; and refuse to accept them as unearned gifts from any source. 10. We are seeking to be totally in control of all that happens to us. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
