Such projections occasion far more alienation and estrangement --- than they occasion reconciliation and cooperation. We are being dishonest when we pretend that the cosmos is conforming to our expectations. Narcissistic expectations are destructive, not motivated by Love in Integrative ways. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
