VI – BASIC PRINCIPLES
These basic principles are therapeutic principles; if they are respected, the system (that is, the family, organisation, or group) will attain a state of equilibrium and health, whereas if they are not respected, the individuals in the system and the system itself will fall ill and necessarily be subject to perturbations and disturbances.
THE THREE EUPHONIC METAPRINCIPLES
• 1st Euphonic Metaprinciple: the principle of reality, or the acceptance of what is real – in other words, the recognition of what has been and what is.
The negation of what has been and what is weakens the system, hindering its continuation and growth.
• 2nd Euphonic Metaprinciple: the recognition of the priority of the system – its equilibrium, continuation, and growth – over the individual, as the precondition of the individual’s possible evolution.
• 3rd Euphonic Metaprinciple: the equilibrium between giving and receiving
Basic Principles of the 2nd Euphonic Metaprinciple
(9 principles – 3 higher and 6 lower)
• 1st higher principle: belonging
(as opposed to exclusion)
• 2nd higher principle: seniority
(if the space is taken from someone who was there before, how are the people who come afterward going to pay this debt?)
• 3rd higher principle: balance between giving and receiving
• 1st lower principle: commitment and responsibility
• 2nd lower principle: twofold hierarchy
• 3rd lower principle: results
• 4th lower principle: competency
• 5th lower principle: individual realisation
• 6th lower principle: outer influences
