Transcending our cultural mind-set

Spirit tells me that we must transcend

The cultural mind-set that we were

Born into, and raised within. We are,

He tells me, as conditioned as

The countless millions of people

Living in other societies.

 

The socially-acceptable way of living

In our own culture may differ from

That of other cultures, but their people are

No less and no more conditioned

Than we are, Only the rules are

Different.

 

But, Spirit cautions, though some of us

Can and must liberate ourselves

From group-think, we must also

Be aware that freedom from one

Form of unacceptable social conditioning

Does not necessarily result in a better

Way of life. Tyranny has a history of

Being replaced with another tyranny.

 

Those of us who must transcend our

Social conditioning, for whatever reason,

Have a sacred duty not to liberate

Too many others.
