I do realize today that I made a mistake when I founded the organization “Culture Unites Cultures for Humanity” – According to the UN’s latest research it is at present business, trade and NGO’s, that has both flair and social insights in order to handle this task to unite cultures for humanity. Social awareness has been implemented in the business universe although, it is a long way for a worldwide common denominator in this context.

Everyone agrees that we can not dispense with culture, but just as many disagree about the culture’s purpose, values and the format, that has a spiritual significance for the world’s future.

Culture has for many years been influenced by religious or spiritual thoughts and beliefs, but in this inverted and recent times are the culture in a “wading place” where nobody actually knows what the future holds in this particular universe.

Perhaps one of the reasons that governments, sponsors, organizations and private people have been over-cautious with the major support schemes for innovation within the cultural universe and of course with the mind directed towards the general economic downturn worldwide.

Individual cultural professionals need recognition for whatever it may be within this wide range under the name of culture and as long as these recognitions are received there will always be people interested in the cultural work of admiration or a spiritual breath in everyday’ life.

Culture is impossible to manage at the same level as the business trade and NGO

The trips's transport options are manifold where in the world we find ourselves.

work for a better and coordinated objectives towards respect and recognition of the diversity of cultures, ethnic diversity, traditions and rituals that are ingrained as a natural part of everyday life. Business people and NGO’s have over the last hundred years worked hard to share, understand and develop their own methods to build bridges, that are far above any political, religious or spiritual involvement, but with a human insight into man’s values as equivalent persons regardless of intelligence or other forms of ego-like creators.

The established religions and other belief systems are currently under pressure be it truth’s time, science and new spiritual discoveries, or a simple recognition of life’s individual character, although we are pack animals but now trained and educated to think independently.

Seen from the universe’s outer abstract design is this planet only a very small part of a larger and perhaps infinite unity that we the humans can not see, why man must find their own ways and solutions in the collaboration’s art, if we otherwise understand what this word contains of commitments.

221729_1957248019770_1499835657_2153982_5546969_nThe culture will always be visible – the question remains on what grounds it will evolve in light of today’s economic conditions. There are sales on many shelves regardless of political, spiritual and religious proposals for a world without unemployment, equal rights for all but until now without a proper proposal on governance and on which basis the world’s population will be able to live on equal terms regardless of the many cultural differences.

The visions are plentiful but they help only if they are extremely well supported and useful in the man’s individual and complexly system. Philosophers and poets have often challenged to foretell the future without actual physical or scientific insight, but today’s trend looks like a change in this particular part of the cultural universe, that will be overtaken by man’s better ability to separate fact from visionary castles in the air.

The culture will always survive ….. but on individual grounds why this approach will weigh much more than “Culture Unites Cultures for Humanity” …..:

    Culture reflects society. The direction society takes will influence the cultural trends. Now, we live in a shrinking global society in which cultures often overlap and blend. Distinct cultures do exist, but modern technology makes it increasingly more difficult to have unique cultures by geographic region. Technology will impact cultures and they will eventually evolve into a interconnected and loosely meshed cultural whole.

      I actually agree about the main lines you describe Ellen Fisch…. Look at the answers I made downstream from the series of comments.

      • I agree that major cultural trends are based in private companies and business. However, pop culture cannot be dismissed, in my opinion. I believe that global culture is hugely influenced by music, film and mass marketed clothing. Much of these influences are generated in the US and UK. Other countries (especially mass marketed clothing) in Asia have a presence, but I think that the US has made a major cultural bridge for young people around the world particularly in music and music videos. I do not believe that 100% of the music discounts the spiritual: in fact I think that some portion of rap/new wave/tech/etc embraces spirituality on some level. It is certainly true that most business has excluded the spiritual from their MOs, but other cultural forms have not. It remains to be seen where culture goes in this age of instant information.

          I’m actually a cultural eagle across the vast repertoire and thus harvested the fruits of the many variations that exist in the world.
          The cultural universe has unfortunately not some spokesmen who can participate when major decisions are taken at the global conferences. Well, The culture’s servants could be ministers of culture, but they fail due to fear from the many contentious cultural organizations who solely think in ego centric courses.

          The culture has always lived under severe economic opportunities for the development and progress partly because of the culture’s tendency to polarize specific areas, as if it is the world’s solution to everything and just with this motley picture from my own experiences, culture will not be able to to unite cultures of humanity.

  2. Kurt, I read the Blog but I don’t know what to say.

    I cannot make heads or tails out of what you are in fact saying. Is the blog meant as a self critisims and a critic on the status quo in the world as it is at this moment in time or do you condone a world system that excludes spirituality?

      No Cath, I do not exclude either religion or spiritual thinking, but refer to the fact that now exists about the culture’s influence when many different cultures must unite around progress, ideas and joint cooperation. The next North + South Forum conference in Morocco on 11 – 13 March 2012 include participants from 100 different countries (BTW, I am invited to this event). The list of keynote speakers includes several prime ministers, business people and NGO’s but not one single person representing the cultural universe, although they have been invited.
      North + South Forum is actually a quorum in many areas and the objective is of course a greater cooperation across frontiers, where the basic elements are trade, economic and learning in other cultures with respect and recognition of the diverse cultures that exist in this world.

      These professional participants will therefore build bridges to all around the world but of course on a neutral belief system subject as previous experience where culture unfortunately has become a part of both religious and spiritual sales goods.

    I think you are saying we need to look at spirituality and the culture of what are called the “universal people”, who have the characteristics all people and cultures share. Business and Bureaucracy cannot unite people till they share common cultural elements.

    • lindvedpress says:

      No, the trend right now is more based on the private companies, business people and NGO’s that excludes spiritual and religious elements in their way to work alongside opportunities for coexistence without using cultural vested interests, that particularly the new generation has scrapped as a useful mean of reconciling different cultures in this world.
