The statements will most likely be found to be false and/or misleading if they are received as prescriptive or proscriptive statements. Healthy people find pleasure in mutually-satisfying relationships; but NOT within relationships which are NOT- mutually-satisfying. For healthy-people, pleasures vanish when other participants within "their" relationships do NOT-ENJOY participating in "their" relationships with them. Sadistic people and masochistic people are not health-people. They (and their domineering "friends") promote and facilitate personal and communal disintegrations. Other people who are healthy do not enjoy being in relationships with them. They cannot unilaterally control how much (or the kinds of) pleasure, pain or enjoyment people "get" out of being in relationships with them. They cannot unilaterally "give" themselves or each other the "pleasures", "happiness" and/or "joy" that they may unilaterally: envision, dream-of, or "create" within their fantasy worlds. "Our" pleasures, happiness and joys depend upon our freely-choosing to be cooperative participants within cooperative relationships with others who freely-choose to be cooperative participants with us --- as free-participants; ALL with equal rights to make our own choices. What we covet vanishes when we unilaterally try to control what we covet; e.g., real: friendships, intimacies, relationships and honesty-truths. We cannot truly be the best that we can be: 1. In isolation/estrangement. 2. Through excommunications. 3. Through unilateral will-power and actions. 4. Through being domineering and "in-control". 5. Through purity, purifications and exclusivity. 6. Through unilateral achievements/successes. 7. Through conformity and formalities. 8. Through "proper" rituals, beliefs and actions. 9. Through commandments and obedience in fear. 10. Through prescriptions and scripture-worship. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
