Course Keys **** Many "Personal-Relationships" are "Games-that-People-Play" within the overall-context-of: 1. Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception --- which CANNOT BE WON! 2. Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Domination -- which CANNOT SUCCEED! 3. Alienative-Conflicts over "Getting-Ahead" -- which CANNOT Get-Ahead! 4. Alienative-Codependent "Intimate-Relations" which CANNOT Be-Intimate! 5. Alienative-Codependent-Conflicts which CANNOT Be-Resolved by Participants! 6. Pretending to Transcend the Real-Limitations of Mortals and God's Astronomically-Tiny-Space-Ship-Earth! 7. Pretending that there will Always-Be-More-Resources Available-for-us-to-CONSUME AT-WILL! 8. Pretending that without-limit MORE-is-always-BETTER - - - even when resources are being Exponentially-Exhausted. 9. Pretending that "The-Economy" will always make the best decisions about "What-is-Good" and "What-is-Trust-Worthy". 10. Pretending that "The-Economy" is a reliable "OBJECTIVE-REALITY" rather than "Our-Reflexive-Views-of-Each-Other". ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our "Personal-Relationships" which are EMBEDDED within Our "Games-that-People-Play" within Our "Collusive-Games-of-Mutual-Self-Deception" - - - Have very little in common with: True-Lovers Being-Together in the Many-Gracious-Ways-of-Shalom within the many Communal-Sanctuaries that are Built-and-Maintained By-True-Lovers FOR-ALL Who truly-desire to Mitigate-Their-Own Alienative-Conflicts and consequent Patterns-of-Alienation. NOW is always the time to LET-GO of the Alienative-Traditional-WAYS of Domineering-Bullies and Mobbing-Mobsters among US.
