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
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.
