There are many tragic consequences which flow from pretending (collusively) that arriving at such agreements is simple. Even when definitions have been arrived at (possibly collusively) it is not a simple thing to: (1) Recognize, (2) Name, (3) Describe, and (4) Use such descriptions of that which has been defined. None of the four steps is simple, except when made to appear simple through the playing of collusive games of mutual self-deception. Yet, each of the above ten things is essential to an understanding of the full implications of the two great commandments to: (1) Love God with all our hearts, minds, and souls, and to (2) Love our Neighbors as our Selves. Complexity in regards to all of the above flows from the reflexive aspects of all of the above, and from our tendency to be defensive when we feel insecure; a feeling which engenders attitudes, thoughts, thinking, conclusions and behaviors which exacerbate our insecurity. Open and honest discussion regarding what the above text points to --- will be essential to the enjoyment of both personal and communal integrity. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
