Cultural Conditioning

The importance of cultural conditioning. While talking to Karaj yesterday I suddenly realised just how important his culture is to him and, therefore, how important our own cultures are to all of us. Up until that point I had considered that my cultural conditioning amounted to 32 years of influence. Yesterday, I saw quite clearly that I have also inherited all my ancestors conditioning. I carry generations of influence with me, not just 32 years.

That is the nature of conditioning. It is passed on from generation to generation. It evolves to suit its environment, making itself very effective in limiting potential. It is the same with family conditioning. There are many generations involved and the conditioning is so powerful that there comes a time in everyone’s life when it is too late to do anything about it. The benefit of understanding my culture is that I can separate what is me from what is my cultural conditioning. Separate those and life gets cooler.

Today was the first time in three weeks I haven’t exercised in the morning.
