- 1.Why we have the situations of deterioration.
- 2. History behind education system.
- 3. What can easily be done to improve it.
We have the situation on the planet now, where people can perform tasks of society, but can have little – to no – idea of how to be a human being, or of what this is. As a direct result, we as a species and our planet, are suffering greatly.
This comes as no surprise to me at all.
It is in fact completely obvious to me and was expected. Our further deterioration is anticipated unless we instil in our own society, the means to learn of ourselves.
The education system as we know it was to prepare people to perform a task, or a function, so that they could be employable, for the development of a society within a country.
Human health and wellbeing was not investigated at the time any of the systems were instigated. There was no consideration of a greater consequence to any actions taken, or any ability to do this.
As economies themselves are suffering the result of mass ill-health, it would seem timely for simple Human Essentials Studies to be included within the standard education system.
Historically, in Britain, children were sent to work to perform many of the menial tasks. In fact much of the Industrial might of England of the Victorian Era, can be said to have come from the children working in mines and factories!
It was considered an improvement, with the idea of increasing the chances of better employment for the child, to have them receive education. This was the beginning of the school system, to prepare for work only.
The school system as we know it, was not started with any idea of preparing developing human beings to be adult human beings. It was not even started with a knowledge of what this was.
We have succeeded in creating a society that relies upon job training, and many people have achieved retirement plans, superannuation and well deserved world holidays.
My own British family are among the people holidaying around the world now. Their desire to travel and buy things in foreign countries creates jobs there also. They have retired, they are doing what they feel they should be doing at their age, and what they have been ‘taught’ to do.
The thing is – and with love and respect to them – they have not the development and knowledge of what they are as human beings. It is not even a subject they can speak on.
My own mother was a teacher in Britain and in Australia, and she had no respect for children – by her own admission – or any idea of how to be a human.
We have a human health crisis and an Earth health crisis. It is quite simple to me, what precautions need to be taken to prevent any further unnecessary deterioration. And it is unnecessary.
I would begin with immediate Human Being Essentials studies to be fit in the school systems already in place around the world. The systems as we know them, do not need themselves to be changed – many if not all can remain. It is only the energy and the approach that needs alteration.
We have come a long way – Britain has come a long way – from the time when children were sent down mines and up chimneys do to the work an adult would not do. “People have children to do their dirty work” my mother told me. Yet still THE ‘EDUCATION’ SYSTEM IS WAY BEHIND.
We are not killed as a matter of course if we question what we are, and this was what happened historically. It is no longer seen as a direct threat to the throne or to the faith at rule. If anything it is seen as a rather cool progressive thing to do. Why not ‘raise’ our children? Why not give our children an advantage of knowing more about themselves?
I do not want anyone to need to experience the things that I did on my learning path. I am passionate about the education curriculums ‘Human Being Essentials’ that I am developing. I am passionate and committed to all young humans being able to know what they are – as much as they know how to care for their dog, or their favourite hobby!
The only reason we do not already know about ourselves, is due to historical fears of invasion, as our systems of society were formed.
The fear now, is what will happen further if we do not take care of ourselves in a more responsible manner. We can’t all sit around watching telly for the health tips of Dr Oz! Our children certainly can’t from school.
Do we really need to get through our school, get through all our preparation for society, and then, be able to find the time – and expense – to do our own extra curricular learning of what we are? What it means to be a Human being? How to be a healthy one?
Even just the word ‘Human’ is something many just cannot relate to! How telling is that!?
It is a joy and a privilege to have a body and a life, and, knowing how to live as a human being should come as no surprise. We cannot care for ourselves if we are ignorant of ourselves. : -)
