Culture is diverse by its very nature. Its meaning and its structure tells us that in its simplest form it is a way of coming together and uniting. It is connecting and growing as a unit.
Of course the very creation of culture means that we grow up surrounded by and immersed in the culture in which we are born. We are given beliefs and a culture in which to create this unit. A culture in which we can unite and grow. We are formed on the culture that we are born into. It is only through expansion that we see other cultures and are opened to other ways.
Culture allows us to band together. It is a collective of like minds or like intentions that sees it become more than it once was, and therefore grow in strength. The greatest that I see in culture is its instinct to connect. That it seeks to connect more and more, and gather and garner in numbers. It is a cultivation of goodness. A manifestation of intent.
Today we see so many cultures. More than ever before. More than ever thought possible. And we see how diverse every culture is, and how diverse we have all become. We see how varying beliefs and thoughts and ways have created journeys and pathways so different from each other. And I see each of them seeking to connect. For in essence that is what culture does. Unites to connect.
It is in the connection that we see its greatest movement. When celebration and unity come together for a time of solidarity. When we rise together as a unit to create greater good for all. Essentially as the world is continuing to grow - we are needing greater acceptance in order for this to continue. as more cultures and ways are formed or founded we are needing to allow ourselves to expand to truly understand and connect again.
Without this. Without culture seeking to connect, we find culture that seeks to divide. It will believe only in itself, its way and create fear through its closure. When in truth culture seeks love through acceptance.
SAVE OUR COLLECTIVE SELVES FROM INDIVIDUAL IMPULSES.
This is my favourite line from the link I am bringing you here. This is a great little animation about the impact of culture. The commons. And how it works.
As we continue to evolve through of the gods, and as a world united, it is becoming more and more apparent that allowing a new culture to be formed is necessary. It is simply, a culture that is OF all that we each are. It is of acceptance and open hearted ways. It is allowing each of us our own pathways and our own journey. Without judgement. In support and kindness. For we are now realising that whilst we may be pieces of the collective whole, without us beginning to think and act as a collective in unity we will continue to suffer from our own self. From the individual impulse to have more or greater simply for my own benefit.
My hope is that as a culture that is seeking out the greatness of Life, that we all find a space to connect here. In celebration and conversation. That we find ways to allow within the walls of the gods the space for each of us to come together and that we can unite and weave stories and create for the greater good.
