Self or not?

One\'s \'personality\' can be seen as a colorful representation, a cluster of one\'s morals, beliefs, upbringing, inheritance, culture and (traumatic) experiences. Humans develop from there the way, they interact (or not) with society and with themselves (or they are forced to do so).  It is that innate drive to reach the top of Maslow\'s Hierarchy of Needs that either motivates one to move forward or to be pushed into depression as this energy gets stagnant, leading towards all sorts of physical and psychological problems. It can be animistic in nature or highly spiritual (or anything in between). It also determines in which way one contributes to society both in a positive/constructive and a negative/destructive way. It determines if one is operating from the (demonic) selfish self or from the non-self, without attachments. 

Dear John,

I believe that the environmental setting that influences a person’s growth, is as unique and diverse as the proper result – namely the personality. And in the same way, the way this personality interacts in society offers once again unlimited possibilities of manifestation.

Listen and learn – is what I do when I meet people and have deep conversations.

BR, Daniel
