(2) Become well informed through reliable complementary sources about what is happening in some selected areas of special interest and concern --- so as to be able to make prudent decisions about whom to encourage, support and make suggestions to. (3) Be active in trying to change people's views, attitudes and committments --- in light of their own long held views, attitudes and committments. They already know what they need to know and do not need to seek additional information and points of view. What is really important is eternal, and they already know enough! (4) Engage in regular meditation, prayer and the discipline of a truly spiritual life which transcends the rush of most people's-daily-activities. Only when they are deeply in touch with the ground-of-being can they make a significant difference in the course of human events. (5) Study scholars' views, scriptures and classical writing in search of reliable truths and insights --- which transcend the transitory fads of today. (6) Study the findings of objective scientists who have transcended reflexive, subjective and fantastic realms of imagination which are not well grounded in reality in enduring ways. (7) Rely upon authoritative spiritual teachers who are well grounded in ancient religious teachings and traditions --- that have stood the tests of time.

What are we to make of their disagreements and the contentious ways in which they treat each other in alienative ways? How transcendent have they become? Be Graciously-Together in the Ways-of-Shalom!
