Threads of Gold


Ready-made Expanders

THIS PAGE has three parts:

  1. Savoury motivations of three kinds:
    1. Fit for one's good old group's cohesion and thriving one way or another;
    2. For dealing with outright enemies or opposing elements that never meant friendly love;
    3. Strongly adjusted to advancing, maximising or better group handiness, as the case may be. In some cases group belongingness may be built up.
  2. Added material:
    1. legitimation 1 and 2;
    2. Great, disarming modulations added to the content;
    3. Handy tips for linking up nicely outside of the family - admittedly in gross terms.
  3. Careful diplomacy comes next. There are a few hints on it; it's not always enough to look sweet.

1. Motivations

We discern between three main types of motivations:

  1. Good, at least sensible "we-aims" aligned to "What's good for the goose needs to be good for the gander."
  2. Dealing with opponents - There is a lot of competition and its opponents in the human realm.
  3. Large, common goals to serve in a good setting - if you're friends, or by common or large agreement (consensus). These also serve as conformity-ensuring standards.





2. Legitimations

These are titbits for educational ends

SOUND legitimations and careful modulations of arrays matter:

  1. CONCERNS: Legitimations happen to show concerns - and even strife - that can evolve great considerations in time. Proverbs reflect that well. We deal in two kinds here: (1) The direct, ongoing or activity-helping ones; (2) "It-seems-to-me"-considerations and plutt-plutt (jabbering) instead of frankness in opposition or a minority. Let others call the latter ones "old academic reservations" if they like. The best legitimations are solid to look at, and very often what motivations play upon, and should look sound - at least to someone. And did you know careful considerations can be used to outwit or pacify opposition? You may try it -

  2. MODULATIONS are used to look savoury and eliminate or get rid of set-backs.

  3. LINKING UP carefully and full well needs to be in order to deal with "road-blocks". It most often means methodically and its best shots fit in nicely and even fully. Alignments need to be careful and should serve professionalism later on. We link up methodically and full well if we're basically served from it - we even should. True politeness and tact is useful too.

c. Linking up:

To remain adequately careful, polite, and guarded comes in addition.


3 - Diplomacy

In part slapstick-looking, but in essence useful

GOOD, FAVOURABLE and careful study of the cognitive items here on this page, helps better thinking in general. If things then go well or better, a sure indication is that you don't sit alone and swear in the night. Another sign is that your penis is not crushed. Let it be a little sign of self-independence and true assertiveness.

If you make use of our know-how in the art of formulation, a lot of maybe's should be added by yourself:

  • Do keep to to such as lovely tact with intrinsic consistency in the use and among as many co-working items as you well-nigh can.
  • You can disarm many through synergistic workings with conditions, the larger fare you're inside, while keeping to your main end goals in view.
  • Don't lose any current or large, future favours from it.
  • Stay well, let good heritage remain intact and keep your gunpowder dry. Don't let loose the wolf either, not till you're in safety.

Master things in time, for there are often many a need for a head start and becoming advancingly functional in some ways or waters (terrains). Being in time tends to help. Have good gear (outfit) on top of or in addition to these facets of the art of presenting oneself and own findings, starting from scratch or better.

Then you have to know how to preserve your valued assets.


Summary with end note

In this survey we have been into three parts:

(1) One that deals with common motivations: (a) open and friendly; (b) Underhand sorts; and (c) Organic-looking, fit for new friendships.

(2) The second part deals with open-ended educative legitimation, or justifications of two sorts: (a) Constructive; (b) Advancing oneself or one's ends in a pucker, minority or in the face of opposition - Besides there are modulations that can be added to any utterance (proposition, assertion) to make it look fluid, or to bolster it somehow, to make it less biting or wilful-looking. - Finally, linking oneself or one's stuff to good and reliable persons is good, whereas linking oneself to bigwigs may lead downhill towards being made use of in many hundred ways as time goes by.

(3) The third part shows very general ways of handling routines and encounters smartly. Blandness and tact are great helpers in a civilised society. Politeness pays a lot of times.

End note

You can be of this persuasion: To get it cosy is not all bad. Crime pays lots of times. Careful study leads to better mastery in general. And this little array of standards or norms that often drift and float under the surface of items and assertions, is real help against getting hoodwinked. The hoodwinked guy can become brainwashed next. There is no need for that.

This looks like real help towards mastery of the art of living or expressing more poignantly - but you have to do a lot yourself. That's one of the more solid parts of self-assertiveness, self-mastery and what artistry in the long art of solid living leads up to. In the meantime, you can have lots of fun from this long series of slogans to add and mix for "how to live" or "how to express solidly yourself". It can all help boldness on and up.

To function fluently, candidly and masterfully in your own right isn't too bad either . . . Now, drop me a note if things get wonderful, but not too wonderful to speak about.
