I’m trying to catch up on stuff, but all I can think about is the double-edged axe of “Cultural Appropriation”.
“Stick to your own heritage and leave ours alone!”
What if you have no heritage? No traditions? “Every family has a heritage!” You know what they say about rules, right? There’s always an exception.
This is very astute and an interesting perspective on cultural appropriation. It sounds to me like the OP is more in the realm of thoughtfulness about, and appreciation of other cultures, rather than being disrespectful or appropriating.
I believe learning about other cultures and their beliefs can be done in a respectful way. If after a good amount of research, especially through reading a metric shit-ton (yes that’s a technical measurement) on a subject and then through the use of praxis, if something resonates with you, I don’t think anyone else can really bar you from bringing those perspectives into your personal practice.
Much respect to the OP for posting this very thoughtful post.
