culture

Culture is important to those that have one.  A culture develops through the centuries and is dependent on its people living, its ancestors.  We all have ancestors.  Some are just better remembered than others.  There is little that is interesting about those people lacking a fundamental history about which they can feel personally proud, no matter what that history entailed.  We have all experienced exploitation and violence in our times.  We have all had to swallow our pride at one time or another.  Should your culture be dull and empty of resonance, that can be considered a problem of sorts.  There are ways to remedy this deficiency, but they are few and far between.

A good way to begin the remedying of a dying culture is to give it a place in your future.  Find out what you are, who is in you.  The coding of your DNA can give you this information.  Once you know the scope of your coding then you need to contemplate how much of your person has evolved through nurture – and what percentage of you is a given from Nature.  These kinds of names and numbers are important if you wish to survive a cultural extinction.

There is an absolute strength and a deep humility in an established culture.  It is the balance of these factors – amidst others – that determines the success and reach of a culture’s influence.  A beautiful people generally have a beautiful culture.  If you can recognise beautiful people you will intuitively understand that.  Those with beautiful cultures live with the knowledge that the connection they have with their past is what will carry them into the future.  We can all learn from those people.
