Accommodation and HarmonyRelated to the notion of relationship awareness is accommodation.Often times there aremany persons involved and how best to help is not obvious.The desire to nurture networks ofcare requires that one tries to accommodate the needs of all, including myself.It is not alwayspossible, or wise, to do what everyone thinks they need, but it is often important to do what youthink is best while at the same time giving everyone concerned a sense of being involved andconsidered in the process.When we do this, we have a better chance of preserving harmony.Ifyou do what you think is right without consulting anyone, you risk upsetting the harmony of thegroup.Of course not all harmony is worth preserving.The oppressive society may be prettystable and harmonious, but at the price of those at the bottom.An ethic of care would beopposed to this type of superficial harmony since it is dependent on treating some as though theydo not deserve the same care as others.Ideally, we should aim for the harmonious society inwhich all are treated with care.
