Some think/feel that the invitations are mandatory; i.e., cannot be declined in any realistic and/or effective way. Of course if you treat such invitations as being really mandatory; there is no way to avoid participating in them. In many Southern States in earlier times if you were invited to participate in a duel with each participant having one gun, with which to kill the other in a "fair" way; many could not imagine any way to decline the invitation with honor; until finally it became illegal to offer and/or participate in that tragic ritual of Simplistic-Idealists. How is it that True-Lovers can Find-Conceive-Create ways to Refrain-from-Participating in modern Violent- Rituals which have not yet been made illegal or taboo? True-Lovers know through experience and gracious consideration --- that the modern Violent-Rituals which Domineering-People invite others to join in --- are tragic rituals of Simplistic-Idealists who are: 1. Playing Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception. 2. In Greedy-Ways Concentrating-Power-and-Wealth. 3. Pretending that there are no more-integrative ways. 4. Unwilling to honor the authority of human experience. 5. Willing to sacrifice personal & communal integrity. 6. Willing to sacrifice honesty & authenticity. 7. Willing to sacrifice civility & hospitality. 8. Willing to sacrifice distributive-justice & love. 9. Willing to sacrifice fellowship & coherence. 10. Willing to sacrifice balance & mutuality. 11. Willing to sacrifice cooperation & collaboration. 12. Willing to sacrifice Shalom --- to Create-Peace. Be Graciously-Together in the Many-Ways-of-Shalom. (c) 2006 by Paul A.
