Different spirits, attitudes, assumptions and "angels" guide and motivate the two contrasting ways of behaving. We can help each other discern the differences by the use of contrasting PATTERNS of words: HEALTHY ABUSIVE ======= ======= LIBERATING CONTROLLING GENEROUS GREEDY SHARING CONCENTRATING IMAGINATIVE DOMINEERING HOPEFUL FEARFUL SHALOM ANXIOUS HEALING HARMFUL HELPFUL DEMANDING REVEALING PREJUDICIAL CONSIDERATE INSENSITIVE SYMPATHETIC INDIFFERENT INFORMED IGNORANT FORGIVING EXCOMMUNICATING RECONCILING CONDEMNING CREATIVE CONFORMING INTEGRATIVE SEGREGATIVE INTEGRATION DISINTEGRATION BUILDING DESTROYING TOLERANCE INTOLERANCE CREATIVE TRADITIONAL EXPERIMENTAL MANDATORY MOVING STUCK REVEALING CONCEALING HONEST PRETENTIOUS HUMBLE ARROGANT GENTLE VIOLENT LIBERATING COERCIVE FREEDOM IMPRISONMENT INCLUSIVE EXCLUSIVE ACCEPTING REJECTING WELCOMING OFFENDING CIVILITY CONTENTIOUSNESS It is the overall PATTERN which is revealing; NOT any few features within the overall PATTERN. People who are ABUSIVE are likely to focus compulsively upon one or just a few EXCLUSIVE features of the overall PATTERN. People who are HEALTHY are likely to focus graciously upon an overall PATTERN made by many mutually COMPLEMENTARY features. It should be clear that domineering people who are in the service of "The Domination System" will NOT appreciate or welcome the above kind of kind clarification --- no matter how graciously it is offered. In fact they will take advantage of all of "The Powers That Be" in their hands to suppress, repress and confuse any such clarification --- for the concealment of "The Powers That Be" concentrated in their hands is an essential way of protecting such concentrations in the service of "The Domination System". They have been known to crucify gentle people who were too much honored by the common people who demonstrated an excess of common sense in gracious ways which exposed the concentration of "The Powers That Be". See the book by Walter Wink by that name for more insights into how "The Powers That Be" abuse what they have concentrated for themselves by depriving poor people of the fruits of their labors.
