East-West Axis: GOOD MESSAGE. The East and West directions are the guardians of the good message principle. It is easy to only catch part of what is being said in a conversation and take that as a whole truth. It is equally easy to gossip about people behind their back and pass on information that is not true. However, these things tend to lead to spiraling frustration and aggressiveness that is often unwarranted. Following the good message principle means bringing concerns out to the open and clarifying the situation and the intentions behind the words heard so that everyone is clear about the actual truth of a situation.
