Goodness and Adversity

Progressive Handling

As explained, the Framework appears to be characterized by a focus on responsibility in the lower three Groupings and the provision of motivation in the higher three Groupings. This is integrated in building character at R"G4.

The Table reveals in more detail the way that the production of goodness is progressively handled. Read the functions through from top to bottom.

Handling Adversity

Goodness is problematic in response to stresses and adversity because egocentric fears for personal survival naturally arise. Each Grouping provides a different contribution in this regard.

Autonomy & Responsibility

The details of how our autonomy and responsibility must work together, guided by awareness has become more evident from the two great Structural Hierarchies found in the Root.

Autonomy relates to creative action. The Creativity Framework-RsH is derived from the Levels of Endeavour-RH which serve as vehicles for Freedom-Autonomy (RG1 Monads).

Responsibility relates to human goodness. This Goodness Framework-RsH" is derived from the Primal Injunctions-RH" which serve as vehicles for Values-Responsibility-Goodness (R"G1 Monads).
