ONGOING --- because whenever it is regarded as achieved, completed, finished, done, etc. --- arrogance, self-righteousness, and pride set in and undermine what is presumed to have been completed. 2. COMMUNAL --- because whenever any person or group presumes to have unilaterally made/controlled it: arrogance, self-righteousness, and pride set in and undermine civility, civics and any civilization which may have been unilaterally created. 3. PROCESS --- because any stoppage, inhibition, or freezing of: change, growth, dialogue, and/or evolution --- leads to tragic deaths, decay, and dis-integration of all integrative processes which merit respect, honor and support. 4. BALANCE --- because in the absence of balance there is: coercion, violence, alienation, estrangement, domination, resentment, anger, revenge, and counter-revenge as in --- Palestine, Ireland, Kashmir, Africa, Vietnam, Korea, Japan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, China, etc. 5. COOPERATION --- because the absence of cooperation is highly correlated with the absence of: BALANCE, CIVILITY, and ONGOING PROCESSES. 6. CIVILITY --- because the absence of CIVILITY leads to the absence of: COOPERATION, BALANCE, MUTUALITY, UNDERSTANDING, KNOWLEDGE, and DIALOGUE --- which are essential foundations for personal and communal integrities. 7. LEARNING from EXPERIENCES --- because in the absence of such learning: domineering people concentrate powers in corrupting and disintegrative ways which cannot be understood, subverted or undermined without LEARNING from EXPERIENCES. Domineering people often feel that it is essential to insure that good: laws, commandments and rituals are respected, honored and followed with great care and dedication --- for in the absence of such respect, honor, and conformity --- all hell will break loose and destroy all that is good. They regard themselves as called by God Himself --- to make sure that such disrespect, dishonor and non-conformity does not occur. The dilemma is that in the process of unilaterally making sure that all hell does not break lose, they create the hell of the absence of all that is in truth essential to our salvation which is an ongoing communal process --- which entails ALL of the above good aspects of God's Love.
