grew up with western thinking and evaluating, and this shapes us so
strong that we can only think, see and evaluate in this way. But everything
can be seen also completely differently, and there is a large variety
of different ways of seeing in our world. Thus life in many other countries
means somewhat completely different than with us, and accordingly the
naturally felt rights are also different.
We believe, to
be able to evaluate what is correct, and if we then discover people,
who come from another background, then our value feeling will not
apply to them. But they have other values, which have at least
as much authorization as ours, and are often even much more beautiful,
since they do not yet live for money, as we do. We are slaves
of money and can not understand it, how one can be a slave of the
In the west we
believe, that the value of our life is, what we can do and what we
have, as well as to determine for how long we live. In other cultures
life is actually not that fixed on oneself, but somehow seen as impersonal,
which simply exists, of which one is only one part. Their lives are
something, in which one does not have to run after an idea,
but something that is as it is. There comes ever more life, even
if one dies personally. And the same is also the feeling about time, that
ever more time comes, it does not run away.
If we from the west then try to bring with our products also our values into other
countries, then we do not see that there is initially no
need for them. But over time these develop naturally, at expense
of the other values which then will be destroyed. And because the
people there do not have the same experience as we, they cannot
recognize the side effects of the new needs, and/or become conscious
of them. This foreign body destroys then their way of life.
Naturally not everything
is good, which is there in other cultures as values, exactly the
same as with ours, but we would help the situation and humans only,
if we give them the possibility to become conscious of their values,
so that they can transform these consciously, because only then creation
happens instead of killing off, only then can something develop in
accordance with their situation, which is probably not that, which
we created for ourselves. Because there is not only one right way,
everything changes itself constantly, and this will never stop, since life is constantly developing itself further, new consciousness
comes like also new tasks (challenges to mankind) that must be solved,
in order to be able to survive, but also new possibilities will arise.
We will have to
learn to see most diverse values not as contradiction but as enriching.
The truth is something absolute, but applied to something alive it
is naturally not firmly definable. Only the interest, not in oneself,
but in the creation of the alive, can show what is true. And therein
all most different cultures can meet.
