When we find that we cannot realize (make-real) that which we have most desired in light of our best visions, dreams and/or imaginations --- We-Become-Frustrated; and may become so angry that we cannot express our frustration graciously with personal and/or communal forms of integrity. We especially need to clarify what kinds of means-to- success are almost certain to frustrate-our-desires for integration; e.g., means which generate: alienation, estrangement, fragmentation, polarization, dichotomization, fundamentalism and/or excommunications. We ask for Tragic-Outcomes when we express our frustrations in ways which usually lead to: alienation, estrangement, anger, resentment, greed, fragmentation, polarization, dichotomization, fundamentalism and/or excommunications. Such ways ultimately frustrate our Potentially-Most-Integrative: visions, dreams, and unifying desires. The more we let: coercion, violence, unilateralism, exclusivity, rejections, hubris and their "friends" dominate our lives --- the more tragic our lives become in the perverse ways of "Being-Together" as loyal supporters of "The-Fallen-Powers-That-Be" of our most Destructive- Domination-Systems. Central to all Ultimately-Fruitful-Efforts that yield the Sweet-Fruits of Both-Personal and Communal- Integrity --- are the Pervasive-Principles of Distributive-Justice as regards Equitably-Sharing in Fair- Ways: 1. Risks of visions, 2. Benefits of works, 3. Powers to-decide, 4. Costs of investments, 5. Honors of outcomes, 6. Decisions to be prudent, 7. Blame for blunders, 8. Shame for mistakes, 9. Guilt in tragic efforts, 10. Luxuries encountered, 11. Intimacies and vulnerabilities. 12. etc. We-are-Best-Together when we Graciously Strive-with- Integrity --- in the Cooperative Way-of-Shalom. Let us Together-be-Patient with Each-Other who Is- Different, and Differs-With-Us --- Within God's Space- Ship-Earth. Be Aware-of-and-Beware-of Domineering-People who Take-Advantage-of-Vulnerable-People --- and Take-Care Not- to-Copy their Disintegrative-Behaviors. (c) 2006 by Paul A.
