Asking our children to memorize facts in schools is like asking them to re-create the past. Yet, if we invite a child to explore concepts and ideas – such as fairness, tolerance, honesty – we then invite them to create new future, for their ideas might be different from ours.
A person’s fundamental sacred beliefs determine their daily behaviours. Our beliefs set our daily behaviours. We will soon learn to teach our children that all actions are spiritual experiences.
Thus, the student will learn to use spiritual tools to solve life’s problems and challenges. Most challenges have little to do with geometry, geography, biology, or history. Most challenges have a lot to do with fairness, tolerance, equality and honesty. Punishment should be removed from the educational system.
Punishing a child does not teach them to ‘be better’, but that a violence is the way that people in control deal with problems.
There is no Right or Wrong, but rather: What Works and What Does Not Work.
Punishment halts behaviours, yet it does not alter behaviours. Thus, behaviours will show up again in some way in the future.
Creation Education – showing children Who They Are; opening them to the Creator Within, allowing them to believe that they are the Source of their experiences and the Authority over their own lives. Bringing them back to their own Inner Wisdom. Allowing them to practice their Inner Truth. Awakening them to their mind, and opening their mind instead of imprisoning their mind. Connecting the mind to the soul. Connecting the body to the mind, and experiencing all three as One.
Nine components for a curriculum of the first year, in Creation Education:
- You are One with All Living System.
- Because you are One with God, you have the power to create your life experiences.
- You create using Thought, Word and Deed.
- You cannot make mistakes. Failure is an illusion. All that you create is perfect as it is.
- By creating, you fulfil the purpose of Life. Creativity is to Evolve. The purpose of life is to evolve through the act of constant creating.
- Life is the greatest teacher. There is no punishment. Learning is meant to be easy – it is a process of remembering what your soul already knows. Use your Life experiences to remember. This will bring joy. Then you will remember what you need to remember and when you need remember it.
- Never harm another person, place or a thing. Help others and love them, especially if they made a mistake. You will create a friend of just about everyone.
- There is enough for all of us. It takes just very little to be happy. The fastest way to be happy is to create happiness in another person.
- Life never ends. After ‘death’ we are not judged, condemned or punished, but simply given an opportunity to review all thoughts, words and actions we taken in our physical life. We are given the opportunity to decide whether we want (or do not want) to confront similar circumstances as we move on to the next level.
Instead of dissemination of facts, we will teach sensitivity, awareness and celebration of the awe of Life. A teacher should be first a teacher of humanity, and then a teacher of a subject.
Reconciliation is an act where we acknowledge all that nations have done to each other, and we apologise for that.
All hurts, sufferings and deaths become a part of the Cultural Stories we teach our children. Reconciliation will restore our societies. It will remove the hurts of past loses; it will empower people to be Who They Are, so that at last they can start think about who they want to be next.
Re-creation – renouncing old ways and habits, and building ourselves anew. Re-defining ourselves as society, as people, that are successful and happy.
Writing, reading, math – will be taught as a tool for creation.
We can teach the relevance of a subject to life. We may do so by not teaching the subject itself, but something different, something that the child will have an interest in. We might even ask them what they would like to learn.
Education – to draw a Circle of Relevance around a new data. For example, the idea that There Is Enough. The teacher might create a story in which making another person happy requires some use of the tool called ‘numbers’. Now, the children would love to come up with solutions for such interesting story. The children will explore life concepts using tools, such as the tool of math. The tool will not be learned as an end, but as means.
In the New Spirituality era children will be taught that they create the reality. Opening to natural abilities and psychic abilities. Meditation will be a part of school day, with psychic arts, development of ‘sixth sense’ and powers. We were given these abilities to be used.
The best way to learn something is by teaching it.
You do not need to know everything in order to teach it. You simply need to want to know, and to share your growth process with others. A good teacher does not try to put something into, rather to bring something out of every student. To pull the wisdom out of the other, not to put my wisdom in them. In order to pull wisdom out of the student, the teacher needs to know nothing. The less we think we know, the better.
Education will be about creating, not about creating schools, but about creating learning environments.
Schools will be replaced with learning communities, where students will not be segregated by age, but will cluster naturally in groups of interest, no matter of age, gender, race, culture or background.
