What's your opinion on patriotism?
Patriotism as a way of defining yourself or others, is an impediment to the impersonal life of a master. It obstructs expanded perspective and traps awareness. To identify with a nationality or race, is simply a larger personal identity — something we lose during advanced evolutionary stages.
However, to disrespect and demean that which sustains you, whether it is a country, family or institution, is ingratitude. Ingratitude creates the loss of blessings and a blockage to increase and the ability to thrive. Honor that which supports you and respect that which contributes to your well-being.
