Self Mastery vs. Enculturation (the True Self vs The Cultural-Self)

in #culture5 years ago

by Justin Deschamps

One who dares to follow their heart, and use their mind, eventually abandons their culture.  

One who fails to follow their heart, and never uses their mind, becomes a victim of their culture.  

Culture is a shallow and destructive replacement for genuine human integrity, critical thought, and innovative action. The emerging artist of the human soul is only limited by freedoms of expression denied by the enculturated self, encouraged by a culture that seeks reduce everyone to a norm.

Totally agree with you, and feel inspired to mention:
Integrity to our personal values ... which take time to develop ... results in a deep and meaningful personal responsibility.

yes! So true. When you truly know thyself, we feel more capable of positively contributing to the world, another way of saying we are more response-able.
