: : it's your perspective, & it's been moulded by your environment.
: xxx & ultimately, your environment does NOT fully determine who you are or your perspective... environment just adds to it all.
: xxx Going back to my fun read. Have you ever read "The Kreutzer Sonata" by Tolstoy?
+++ Yes, I read the original in Russian.
+++ After reading Tolstoy's works I emerged from that purgatory process as another person understanding my true self so much better.
+++ Tolstoy: Such a mighty soul - You'll notice that I don't use the American words "body, person" or so.
+++ Dear Sadie,
If you find any time ... learn Russian, the language of the future culture of mankind..
+++ Ask any spiritual researcher for confirmation ...
