A Seeker's Thoughts on the Ancients
Learning about those who have lived and died before us is a healthy thing to do. We may even view them as our ancestors, even though superficially your place of origin and/or cultures may differ.

In truth we are all inexorably connected, biologically speaking, but more importantly existentially and spiritually.

Most cultures have had a strong tradition of veneration towards their ancestors and predecessors. It seems that human societies have always valued and loved those who lived before them. It isn't unusual for most of these traditions to ascribe a certain 'Golden Age', most notably , status to the ages of the past. A certain nostalgia isn't uncommon among many civilisations and societies of the world

What we can do is to learn about those who were on the path of life before us, and from there absorb all the wisdom we can for own time and generation.
