Growing up, I was taught to follow a lot of traditions. I have to do this, I have to do that. The words "I need too" Just because it's the proper way of being fit in society standards. Most especially if your Asian.
Asia has a pretty damn a lot of traditions and cultures. Too many, to elaborate. It's really strict. To the point, not following them can be a disrespect or so you can get in trouble or punishment for it. I'm not saying, it's that bad but it could either make you or break you.
Holidays is surely fun. Traditions and cultures can distinguish your race, your country, your status, religion, economy etc.,
But does tradition and culture are really necessary? For what? For ego, pride, power..Politics and religion are really good at that.
What if everything, you touch, see and feel are only illusions?
The universe, the cosmos and the planetary hierarchy can be a complicated thing to understand but with it's energy guidance. May we be more enlightened from the unreal to the real, from darkness to light, from death to immortality.
