In the absence of such positive encouragement --- it is difficult to be involved in healthy growth. Such positive encouragement is often discouraged within communal contexts wherein the traditional emphasis is upon perfection in states of being; perfection in openness; perfection in honesty; perfection in relationships; etc. Preoccupation with proper: perfection, prescriptions, proscriptions, commandments, conformity, achievement, etc. --- inhibit positive encouragement of healthy growth. Such preoccupations undermine healthy growth, personal integrity, and communal integrity; and so they undermine both personal and communal integrity. These descriptions pertain in the wide variety of kinds of healthy growth suggested by combinations of words in the title of this essay. We cannot be well and do well if we systematically and collusively avoid giving any consideration to what these descriptions point to. What we do not ever do---often points to the ways in which we are dis-eased, ill-at-ease, sick, disintegrative, contentious, fragmentive, coercive, violent and destructive. We will disintegrate if we never seek to recognize, name, describe and talk about such tragic ways. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
