what conditions......

.......would you wish to apply to others to have them behave?

does the idea begin with thou shall not......?

Mostly I just expect them to be responsible and fair. Not too needy, and caring about the planet and all the life on it.

It's going to be another beautiful day here, I think I will go enjoy some music this evening.

Have a great day, hugs.

If I choose the right person, I won't need to apply my expectations at all.

For me, expectations in a relationship is the commuter lane for disappointment. BUT. The Golden Rule always apply. If an individual doesn't apply that to themselves, then they're not worth my time.

barista, so it`s a personal responsibility thing then?

that`s my point.

it takes a lot to steel one`s self against the cultural conditioning though.

the crabs will try to pull the one getting away back into the pot.

The ideal nature of being creates principles like the Ten Commandments, then standards are our personal abilities to feel (do) our best ."Do what I say, not what I do." The condition of needing punishment is what created laws and governments, read the first two paragraphs of Common Sense, Thomas Paine gets Masonic on Monarchy. This allowed for the condition of owning property. Conceptual property is the Trust, until governments evolve to trust-ability we will struggle with conditions of slavery.

interesting.....

governments and corporations like the idea of slavery and letting lawyers fight for our "rights" unil our money runs out (of our pockets into thiers......)

governments aren`t going to allow trusts for us. never in the world. they will continue to winch up the tax noose instead.

the rule of law is derived from the bible and will continue to do so.

who`s going to change it?
