School?

Most education has, and is still, been all about preparing a workforce for the industrialised system, to be compliant and not question the rules, not about bettering society for everyone. The current education system is one of shaming us into the unattainable goal of perfection and actually preparing us for a world that will no longer exists as it is by the time most children have completed school.

What if the school curriculum was centred on respect, kindness, empathy, understand, love, worthiness and compassion? What if we were taught properly how to listen and then communicate with each other?

What if you taught meditation, spiritualism, and learnt about awareness, being in the moment, consciousness and acceptance?

What if we were taught about respecting nature, growing organic food, caring properly for animals and the environment? What if were educated in respecting and honouring our own bodies and looking after them?

What if school was soul, body and mind? Not a glorified memory test to be graded for employment.

I wonder if the world would become more kind, more empathetic, more compassionate, more understanding? Would we be more in the moment and more connected? Could we be more at peace within and to world around?

It’s possible and surely worth a try? After all what we have tried hasn’t gone all that well.

Fix it or listen?

Listen and don’t try to fix others.

People aren’t broken, they just want to be understood and not told what you think. Sure offer a viewpoint if asked, but listen, as in really listen not just preparing what we will say next while they talk.

We each have our own unique journey.

Empathy instead of sympathy, listening instead of telling, and acceptance of others for what they are.
