Cultured mind is not the way you think is the important and the important is how will you use your mind so you and others can benefit.... And that is how mastering of self discipline works...

So if the person is self disciplined to use the mind in such a way that the same person and others get benefited by it. The mind must have the ability to think in that particular fashion and then only the person can be self disciplined.

Hello deserve40.... Its like, if you found a person or an idea something like you wanted to be like. That person or idea can be parents, priest, That person or idea can be parents, priest, artists and others. What you have found or felt or have some emotional attachment that has a good example to yourself or you just wanted to be like, it will be always on your mind and that will be yourself. Keeping those in mind and wanted to be like that, must have self determinations and the ability to self discipline.What's the mind wanted can achieve and can be habits. And your habits can also be the habits of others......

We can recognize the culture of a person from his/her behvaiour. A cultured minded person should be well behaved and well disciplined. A cultured mind can contribute wealth and happiness of mankind and he/she can't be a selfish one. I think it is easy to distinguish the culture of a person. But I felt difficulty to define the term 'culture'. Culture depends on the mind of the person, some minds are aggressive and some are calm. Some people don't mind to mischief. You are right a cultured minded person is an asset of his/her family. Thank you for the wonderful post.

Thanks for the response to my discussion. I had read somewhere that the distinctive mark of the cultured mind is ones ability to look at the things from somebody elses point of view other than one's own. Because that will allow the person to understand the things from other's point of view. I feel that this is one of the distinctive marks of the cultured mind. There may be many more.
