Inviting the Miraculous

Assumptions regarding education are like coke-bottle glasses, thick and dense. How is it possible that an industrial-revolution structure remains appropriate for a post-technological global-brain where the mobile computer in your pocket has twice or five-times the computing power of the human brain, which is not far off? And yet, we still believe children in mass should be ferried to local knowledge incubators for six to seven hours a day, one hundred eighty days each year, and be inoculated with one to three homework assignments per week, taking fifteen to twenty minutes each, first through third grade - two to four assignments per week, lasting between fifteen and forty-five minutes each in fourth through sixth grade. Daft!

The Belonging Hoax

Of course we need to belong. Life is relationship. The words abandonment, bonding and attachment rest on the primacy of belonging. The relatively new field of epigenetics, the way the environment shapes gene expression, molding the very essence of life to the ever-changing environment, demonstrates how important it is to belong. Belonging is a matter of life and death, and deep down, we know it.

Where do we go from here?

What follows is a synthesis of forty-years with J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm, Joseph Chilton Pearce, Samdhong Rinpoche and other mentors. The passion, clarity and hope that inspired these teachers etched deeply and took root. I see what I see standing on their shoulders.

Toxic, Toxic and more Toxic

The toxic load is crushing our children - toxic food, toxic water, toxic air and toxic injections. Add this to overstressed parents, corporate-media-technological exploitation of children, the depressing impact of social media on children and adults, the collapse of experiential relationships with nature, the loss of authentic free play, and the long standing failure of compulsory mass education to meet the astonishing learning capacity of every new human being. Anyone and everyone who cares about or for children must step up and take proactive actions to ‘do no harm,’ to human life’s most precious and sacred resource. No more excuses. This is the moment.
