Teach your children to discover their own hearts and beliefs, and you will not have become a substitute source of their power, but rather empowered them to know themselves. Teach your children the importance of love for humanity and the planet and all her life so that they may see past the rigid lines people and groups all over the world draw between right and wrong.
As a former teacher who spent 7 years in the system, one of the things that really bugs me about today’s schools is the undercurrent of fear and control-based social conditioning that they subject our children to. Yes, our children do learn valuable skills and information, but often at the cost of their overall health and prosperity. Our schools, while they do indeed try, ultimately fail to fully harness the power of today’s young minds because they emphasize routine, discipline and testing over exploration, compassion and innovation.
A public elementary school is abolishing traditional homework assignments and telling kids to play instead — outraging parents who say they may pull their kids out of the school. Teachers at P.S. 116 on East 33rd Street have stopped assigning take-home math worksheets and essays, and are instead encouraging students to read books and spend time with their family, according to a letter the school’s principal, Jane Hsu, sent to parents last month.
The more I ponder about life, the more I come to one solid realization: The biggest curse and predicament of modern Man is forgetfulness. Like a creeping malaise, forgetfulness has seeped through all of Man’s being and doing. Individually, collectively, historically or culturally, we are spellbound to forget.
I think we are all in this subconscious believe that time is our relentless enemy that is always racing against us, stealing moments of our lives away. And this in turn causes us to be somewhat anxious and to hurry along; eager to squeeze the most we can out of every single day, which actually lets these moments pass through our awareness with little to no attention at all. We think we are doing our best to manage our time, but my friend, time is but an illusion.
This post follows part 1, which you will find in last Saturday’s Conscious Life News (Feb 22, 2015). Higher education Higher education today represents a clear example of the way that mind and imbalanced rationalism dominate our world. Our universities are full of clever people who are largely unconscious. Most teaching and research is […]
Many people learn about the Law of Attraction, but then they struggle to manifest their dreams. Although they try to be positive and focus on the things they want, they still find that they just can’t get into the groove of using the Law of Attraction effectively. The good news is that this is usually caused by small mistakes that are very easily corrected!
Here are three common mistakes that people make when trying to consciously apply the Law of Attraction. If you’ve been struggling to manifest your dreams, see if any of these roadblocks apply to you. With just a little bit of tweaking, you may find that your ability to consciously manifest improves dramatically.
Expressing gratitude is something easy that you can do to improve your life and make you happy. So why does gratitude make you happy? Consider the following:
Gratitude is a high vibrational emotion. Have you ever been so grateful for something that it nearly brought you to tears? Maybe you just witnessed the birth of your child, just got offered the promotion, or just found the love of your life.
We all have those moments in life that are completely infuriating. Getting cut off in traffic, being undermined at work or dealing with a screaming child all have the ability to derail your good vibes and send you into an emotional tailspin.
Unfortunately, when you are mad it can become very easy for the anger to build momentum, and this is because of the Law of Attraction.
Many people believe that things “just happen” to them, but as we connect more closely to our intuition we are shown that everything that happens to us is of our own creation. We may not be fully aware of what we are creating moment to moment, but fortunately the universe provides us with many signs to let us know when we are on the right path, and (more importantly) when we are on the wrong path.
In general, warning signs from the universe occur in the form of unwanted circumstances and events. These signs are an indication that your energy is headed towards (or currently stuck in) a low vibrational frequency. Your thoughts, feelings and actions are focused negatively, and this is creating unwanted circumstances.
There is a big myth that many of us believe in, and that is the belief that we should put others’ needs ahead of our own. While it is a lovely thing to care about others and protect their best interests, if we all simply put ourselves first above others we would create a world with more positive, loving energy.
Last year when American Paradigm Schools took over Philadelphia’s infamous, failing John Paul Jones Middle School, they did something a lot of people would find inconceivable. Rather than beef up the already heavy security to ensure safety and restore order, American Paradigm stripped it away. During renovations, they removed both metal detectors and barred windows. The police predicted chaos. But, instead, new numbers seem to show that in a single year the number of serious incidents fell by 90 percent.
