Some people may have narcissist tendencies and will quietly manipulate people so they get what they want, the perceived power positions. Groups tend to conform, the manipulator or leader - even in supposed leaderless groups -will dominate, suppress, ignore even humiliate anyone they see as knowledgeable/or does not conform to the "group norm." You can look at your own group; when anyone speaks up, is it held? Is it ignored, is it projected on, does it get met with jealousy? Is it dismissed, sidetracked and is the person managed by someone in the group? Why don't others WAKE UP to how people are being managed as if in an abusive family environment? That is the Bigger Question. Silence implies consent.

"At the time I was painting the picture I felt sorry that I had agreed to sell it. When the picture was finished I stood it up against the door of the balcony and sat down on a sofa at the opposite wall.
Then it seemed to me that Christ's eyes and also His hands were moving. The flowers in the garden became alive. They had turned into human beings who surrounded Christ. Then I saw Christ sway from one side to the other. Oh, how He spoke! But I only perceived one word, 'Gethsemane.' Lightning struck, and Christ disappeared in a light blue robe.
