as agendas of the group are championed

freedom is lost
in identifying essence, spirit,

tends to be excluded, so

such collections of persons
are collections of egos
so the group becomes a collective ego `
not the one I, which is prior to any group, but a group-self

whereas a group that is sacrament of spirit
provides a context and intent
to transcend this individualism-as-group in Love for all
