Cooperatively with other people. 2. In a way which is coordinated so that both our personal and our communal conditions improve together. 3. In recognition that our communal condition is not just the sum of our isolated individual conditions. 4. In recognition that our RELATIONSHIPS with each other are at least as important as our isolated individual conditions; i.e., the integrity with which the members of the community are integrated into coherent whole communities is very important. 5. In recognition that the internal RELATIONSHIPS among each of our personal sets of focal ideals, values, principles, hopes, aspirations, etc. --- must be coherent; i.e., the integrity with which our personal preoccupations are integrated into a coherent whole person --- is very important. To be whole and healthy we need to work cooperatively in fulfilling the PREREQUISITES to open and honest dialogue within intimate personal relationships. Else we cannot safely be vulnerable in the processes of discerning with clear insight the significant of the revelations and descriptions of the possibilities of healthy relationships between/among us and those who are "different", not-familiar, not-trusted, and apparently in conflict with us. We need to build safe communities and sanctuaries within which we will all be free to learn how to recognize, name, understand, transcend and subvert the key elements of "The Domination System" of fallen, concentrated and corrupted powers that be. We need to recognize, name, understand, transcend and subvert the ways in which we are victims of and implicated in "The Domination System". We have been playing collusive games of mutual self deception with ourselves, with our friends, and with our enemies whom we cannot trust; any more than we can trust other people in our own collusive games of mutual self deception. We are all the creators of and the victims of the double-binds, repressions, suppressions, addictions, and patterns of pseudo-interdependence which is often the codependent side of our coins of addictions/codependence. We cannot "fix" ourselves or each other through the use of clever systems of controls, prescriptions, proscriptions, formalities and approved patterns of conformity. Such systems leave us ill-at-ease, dis-eased, and with physiological and mental illnesses. Pretentiousness does not lead us into healthy personal relationships. We need reconciliation, healing, recovery and the restoration of hearing, listening, seeing, discernment, feelings, civility, reverence, hospitality, generosity, and mutual-acceptance into open and honest dialogue. We cannot be well as individuals, or within relationships or communities --- in the absence of hospitality, integrity, integrations, civilization, tolerance, creativity, and the growth of well integrated patterns of complementary differences --- which fit well together in the processes of creating coherent whole people and communities.
