NEW YORK, NY, July 08, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/
-- We have a very clear path to a better world but we cannot do it alone. We are theorists just like a script writer; who still needs the whole movie production team to make the movie. We need the world to take our work forward.
When we try to understand and fix the mess in education we keep going back to trying to improve how we teach subjects like math and science. Actually our math and science education is well set and the mess lies elsewhere. It is due to lack of even a single subject that teaches emotional intelligence.
We are proposing a plan to create text books for a new subject that teaches emotional intelligence; which at the super mature stage is wisdom. We cannot teach wisdom directly because wisdom is the symptom of the pure self. Ignorance is a symptom of an impure self and treating the symptom does not cure the disease. A simple shift in perspective will clear away much of the current mess not just in education but also in the current physical and emotional struggles of individuals, groups and countries.
We must wake up to the fact that wisdom is an innate property of the pure self. It is a secondary entity and so when we try to teach wisdom it is like trying to retool the fragrance of a flower! In order to improve the fragrance of a flower we need to nurture the plant. Our focus has to be on improving the quality of the I/self/mind/consciousness.
I/self/mind/consciousness are all one and the same entity or at least so closely compounded that educating any one will educate them all and improving and changing any one of them will improve and change them all. The litmus test of the quality of each and every one of these is selflessness. By nurturing and cultivating selflessness we will be nurturing and cultivating the pure self.
Wisdom is selflessness and selflessness can be taught. We have thousands of books on wisdom where selflessness is mentioned as one of the attributes of wisdom. We must wake up to the fact that selflessness is the power that creates wisdom and each and every attribute of wisdom is selflessness or at least every one of the attributes of wisdom is powered by selflessness. Selflessness is the currency of a pure life/self/I/mind/consciousness and even of pure happiness.
We have not only figured out how to teach wisdom we have this whole wisdom industry that will generate wisdom education by creating text books, with exercises and lessons, training for teachers and parents, and 'pure happiness' counselors etc. Wisdom coaching for adults, groups and countries, toys that teach wisdom, wisdom computer games, comic books, children stories, sitcoms, TV talk shows, movies and Wisdom Theme Parks, Wisdom Hall of Fame for every school, village, city, country and the world...We can create this wisdom industry in every country and use the income to lift the country out of poverty of resources of economics as well as the poverty of the mind.
