The Qultura community
Being you - the principle and the process
Who are you? How do you live? What do you feel? These are the three most persistent questions we all face as individual human beings. Finding answers to these questions is what life is really all about. You and who you are, who you really are, this is the principle. How you live is the process.
The quality and nature of your life
It doesn't matter who you are the nature and quality of your life is determined not just by the choices you make but also by the other people in your life. You can have health issues, you can have financial issues, you can even have a disability or a physical deformity, but you will find that your biggest challenges in life all come from other people and your connections to other people. This is not just about your personal connections, your family, your parents, your friends, it's also to do with the other people in your life, the people you work for and work with, your neighbours, the people who work for the other organizations you deal with, and also public figures, the government, people in the media, and everyone else in society.
This is what makes empathy fundamental to the human experience
Empathy is by far the most important life skill you could ever learn in life. This is because empathy is the ability shared by everything which we deem to be living - not just humans but also animals, trees and even plants - to be able to connect and interact with their environments but also to other living beings. You are connected to your environment simply because you are part of that environment, just as you are connected to society because you are part of that society and your community. Therefore empathy is fundamental to your survival and the nature and quality of your life experience. At no point in your life are you ever disconnected from either the environment or society. Your survival is dependent on how you connect to other people and how you interact with other people.
What the Qultura community is all about
We are about positive change and evolution
First and foremost the Qultura community is all about possibility, opportunity, and creating positive changes on a personal, social and cultural level. Nobody is going to create positive change for your benefit and if you think that way you only think that way because you've been socially conditioned to do so and also been conditioned to be dependent on the system. In this day and age when you have a society driven largely by corporate profit, where organizations will profit mercilessly from your suffering, your hardship and struggles, this is an incredibly risky way to live. Neither culture nor politicians are your friends. Both work against you.
We are about changing human social relationships
First and foremost we're here to tell you the social and cultural values you've been conditioned to accept as socially acceptable and moral are nothing of the sort. Modern moral values are based purely on material and financial values, blind obedience to authority and social conformity to stereotypes. These are the social values of fascism. You might not think of yourself as a fascist, but you live in a fascist society. That is our social reality. If you base your social thinking on any sort of ideology or fixed, rigid belief system it's virtually impossible not to end up being a fascist. The Qultura community is a very egalitarian community. We reject fascism, we reject authoritarianism, we reject totalitarianism. We reject all forms of bigotry and if you cling to prejudices about other people we will find you and exclude you from our community. The domination of one human being or group of individuals by others is unacceptable.
We are about personal individuation and developing empathy
Empathy is developed through the development of individual human experience which makes the the Qultura community all about the primacy of individual human experience and the development of new culture - together with new social and cultural values - our priority and focus within the community. We reject ideology and belief systems, because it is not what you believe which is important within our community, but what you have experienced in life, your connection to other people, your connection to your local community and that what you seek to experience to go through your personal process of individuation.
We are about community - connections between self and other
This is where the power of choice is important. Empathy is something you are born with and is something you can always develop. You have the power to create change and also facilitate the change in others by supporting their efforts to seek change. This is just the same as choosing to remain indifferent and choosing apathy, which is the opposite of empathy. You have that choice and the power of that choice. Nobody can take that choice away from you, and the Qultura community exists to facilitate the choices you make. We have no ulterior motives or agenda. Why we ask you to do certain things is all explained below.
