KEYS **** Many people find it difficult to recognize the ABSENCE of some particular: person, object, reality, or relationship. It may help such people to learn to recognize the presence of some other person(s), objects(s), realities, and/or kinds of relationship(s) - - - which are NOT often associated with the presence of the particular: person, object or relationship - - - which they do not easily-recognize-as- absent. The presence of the latter - - - implies the possible absence-of-the-former - - - because they are rarely SEEN-TOGETHER. The above pattern also occurs with some pairs of: virtues-versus-vices; admired-ideals versus alienative-ideals, honorable-goals versus disintegrative-goals; etc. Consider the following dis-associated pairs: Honesty versus Deception Authenticity versus Pretense Integrity versus Intolerance Generosity versus Greed Hospitality versus Animosity Kindness versus Meanness Gentleness versus Violence Friendship versus Contentiousness Affirmations versus Contentiousness Cooperation versus Denigrations Attentiveness versus Indifference Support versus Neglect Clarity versus Confusion Transparency versus Obscurity Liberation versus Obstruction Sharing versus Hoarding Balance versus Unilateralism Mutuality versus Domination Kindness versus Torture Trust versus Distrust Reliability versus Chaos Accuracy versus Confusion Love versus Animosity Integration versus Alienation Healthy versus Diseased Relaxed versus Tense Shalom versus Anxiety Confidence versus Fear Intimacy versus Suspicion Interdependence versus Independence Humility versus Arrogance Wisdom versus Naivete Prudence versus Rigidity Flexibility versus Rigidity Tolerance versus Self-Righteousness Reverence versus Egocentricity Inclusivity versus Exclusivity Patient versus Impatience Creativity versus Destruction Integrative versus Disintegration Reconciliation versus Alienation Cooperation versus Conflict Open-Honest-Dialogue versus Shunning Communication versus Excommunication Much which is relevant to our Mitigating Our-Own-Alienative-Conflicts is implied above!
