Love brings people together in ways which transcend reason and logic. ***** Fear misleads people in tragic ways which engender both personal and communal disintegration. Love motivates people in gracious ways which engender both personal and communal integration. ***** Fear encourages people to calculate and engineer ways to achieve personal and communal invulnerability in the face of danger. ***** Love empowers people to live in ways which lead them to discover and enjoy security through their exchanging of gracious gifts of the freedom to be safely vulnerable --- while responding integratively to the risks, challenges and opportunities of new and growing environments. ***** Fear motivates defensive maneuvers which engender fearful feed-back loops of mounting insecurity and violence. Love motivates conflict resolution and peacemaking --- which engender gracious feed-back loops of healthy security and gentleness. ***** Fear encourages people to operate within economies based upon limited security, limited goods, limited grace, and limited tolerance. Love guides people into an economy based upon expanding security, goods, grace, and tolerance. ***** Fear engenders insecurity that demands absolutes which seek to banish doubts, ambiguities, paradoxes, and complementary truths. Love nurtures freedoms to be and enjoy safe vulnerability wherein absolutes, doubts, ambiguities, paradoxes, and complementary truths are tolerable, and are often found to play key roles in human liberations and integrations. ***** Fear focuses upon mutually exclusive opposites, dichotomies, and certainties --- in viscous cycles of distrust and violence. Love nurtures personal and communal integration in gracious cycles of increasing trust and gentleness. ***** Fear defines righteousness in terms of personal conformity, discipline, controls, commandments, prescriptions and proscriptions. Love defines righteousness in terms of personal relationships within which people expand each other's desires and freedoms to be true to themselves and each other in open and honest dialogue and healthy intimacy. ***** Fear preserves and expands: itself, certainties, doubts, insecurity, defenses, defensiveness, cynicism, distrust, skepticism, and confusions. Love in balanced ways puts into gracious perspectives all certainties, doubts, insecurity, defenses, defensiveness, cynicism, distrust, skepticism, prejudices, and confusions. ***** Fear leads people to go to opposite extremes in futile efforts to compensate for each other's extremes. Love brings people together from opposite extremes in gentle efforts to integrate complementary ideals, values, principles, insights, perspectives, desires, hopes and aspirations. ***** Where Fear reigns---things fall apart and evil alienations grow. Where Love reigns---things come together through personal and communal integrity; and evil alienations are transcended. ***** God is Love. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
