Other of the ways in which we are different are WITHIN OUR INFLUENCE AND CONTROL: e.g., patterns of thought, behavior, habits, associations, friendships, beliefs, rituals. There are some "things" which WE CAN INFLUENCE when WE CANNOT FULLY CONTROL them. We need to discern what we can do to promote and facilitate both personal and communal integrity/integrations; and NOT WASTE TIME AND ENERGY trying to do what is not within our power to do. WE CAN INFLUENCE which: ideals, values, images, principles, friends, teachers, family-members, enemies, fears, hopes, aspirations, etc. --- play MAJOR roles in our consciousness; and which play MINOR roles. WE CAN BE HEALTHY to the extent that we work on DOING WELL WHAT-WE-CAN-DO; and do not waste our times and energies on trying to do what we cannot do, no matter how much time and energy we waste on trying to do what we cannot do. We need to COOPERATE in selecting and ordering our priorities --- with due consideration given to how our doing what we do --- affects our personal and communal integrities --- within our many different communities and sub-communities. We cannot do well IN ISOLATION/ALIENATION from each other. To do well we must seek to mitigate/minimize all forms of isolation/alienation which we can influence --- even though we cannot control them. Beware of arrogance, self-righteous- attitudes, exclusivity, excommunications, sin, alienation, and other associated kinds of relationships that undermine ways of cooperating with each other whom we do not know well, and so fear in sin.
