How Can Holistic Education Make the World Better
Author: Greg Tharpe
Holistic Education is the key element that causes success or failure in one’s life. A person’s happiness and success will only raise to the level of her/his education whether attained via formal schooling, self-taught or experience. Many people are struggling in life because they are not educated on how to be holistically successful. The education system’s core curriculum is mostly centered on preparing the student for a job rather than a life of success. Therefore, many experience preventable challenges such as health, money, relationship, addiction and emotional or mental challenges as the result of it.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. [Hosea 4:6 KJV]
The knowledge of holistic education or success is available, however, it is not being taught in the main stream education system. Many of the powers to be in the system have an intellectual or left-brain perception of education and success, which is limited or not holistic education. Therefore, their perception of education is somewhat limited. Their intelligence overrides their spirituality and they are not aware or open minded to the fact that the lack of holistic education from a spiritual perspective is the problem that is causing the perceived problems that the world is experiencing today.
Therefore, due to the lack of holistic education or success education many people do not have a dream or hope for a better life which is causing their life to be unfulfilled or destroyed. They also lack the essential knowledge of the law of cause and effect and life pertaining to the mind’s connection to money, health, relationship(s) and love. The consequences are stress, worry, unhappiness, imbalance, sickness, disease, crime, violence, debt, poverty, divorce, addiction, war, homelessness and hopelessness etc.
Holistic Education is the teaching of the role the mind, spirit, body and soul plays in causing the success or failure one experiences in one’s health and wellness, income, marriage, relationship(s), emotional stability, mental stability and overall happiness or fulfillment. It is based on the spiritual/scientific laws of mind, energy or the universe and therefore encompasses a holistic education approach. It teaches the spiritual truth about a higher power/intelligence or state of mind that everyone is connected to and can attune to – to assist in the creation of their dream and/or achievement of their goals holistically.
It also teaches about the higher state of mind one can reach to experience joy, love and peace or Heaven on Earth; this higher mindset is also referred to as the Christ Consciousness. Furthermore, it teaches the purpose of the mind and the imagination and how to manifest that which one has imagined or visualized.
Holistic Education is the cure, whereas lack of this form of education is the sickness. Intellectual education has its role, but spiritual education from a holistic education approach is the key that unlocks the door to the student’s genius, creativity and wisdom. Wisdom comes from a higher power (God) and is more rewarding and fulfilling than your intellectual school degree. All students are gifted and when properly spiritually educated from a holistic education approach about the inner working of who they are and their potential, they will discover the greatness or higher intelligence within them and thrive in this challenging world.
Man is slowly awakening to this new spiritual mindset and the more progressive thinking leaders in some school systems are going to incorporate spiritual education in the curriculum so that every child receives a holistic education. However, the people that are stuck in the old school mindset or way of thinking are going to reject this change. They are going to fight to keep students stuck in the old learning system that is not geared to holistic education success and assisting students in using their whole brain and accessing their genius and creativity for the betterment of the world.
The old school carnal mindset perception of education says that a certain percentage of the students should fail. However, new school spiritual mindset says that all students are gifted and smart in their own way and no one fails. The day and time is now when the old school (left-brain dominated) educational system will die and the new school spiritual or holistic education will prevail and the world will begin to heal from the destruction of lack of knowledge.
All students will have dreams and possess the knowledge and understanding of their higher intelligence, genius, and wisdom. Therefore, they will know how to set goals and plans to create their dreams. They will possess the scientific /spiritual understanding of the laws of the mind or the universe and believe in greater possibilities for their life. They will live their life based on passion, purpose, dreams, goals, hope, faith, love and abundance, rather than fear, limitation and spiritual ignorance.
In the words of Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Holistic Education blends the mind and spirit together and brings about change at a level most of today’s society does not understand. However, you can make the change today…are you ready?
