Commentary: Current Education Tramples the Mind



Not multi day passes by there isn’t an article in our neighborhood paper on our nearby Public School System. In the event that it’s anything but a weep for more cash, it is grumblings over poor participation, or that numerous nearby instructors are not completely qualified. While a few schools are being “downgraded,” others are being “advanced.” First, a certain something and after that another. Clearly, there is something out of order in our present way to deal with instructing our youngsters.

Different articles in the neighborhood paper convey reports of the expanded interests and energies being consumed by the “little” individuals to end the unavoidable danger of our own administration by the expanding attack of our private rights for the sake of shielding the general population from inside psychological warfare. Individuals are gathering at the grass attaches level to request of their separate government agent, the President and individuals from Congress, to end these every day dangers to our lives. They are tired deep down of living in day by day dread of quickly undermining the assurances of our Constitution. We have to stick to Franklin D. Roosevelt’s, Four Freedoms: Speech, Worship, Want and Fear.

With the majority of this shelling our minds, consider “comprehensively” the relationship of instruction to the numerous endeavors of an offered society to set up its young for grown-up obligations; duties of figuring out how to control our very own individual natures just as adding to the eventual fate of human development. Obviously, about all the get worked up about our impending end is being directed by grown-ups in whom we’ve given our trust to oversee and lead us. Clearly, something isn’t right with this current world’s political and instructive frameworks.


Some minor research will disclose to us that, “training,” gets from the joining of the Latin, “e”, signifying “out,” with the Latin word, “‘duco,” which means to “lead” or “take out from.” Simply, it intends to draw out of the student the innate intelligence that exists in the person in question. This word, instruction, has numerous ramifications given a little idea. One such ramifications is that the infant brings into this world from past manifestations a previous history of gained encounters and learning of the genuine estimation of things. The inconvenience is most teachers and parental guardians are insensible of this reality. The infant is overwhelmed by the occasions of its quick condition from the exact instant of birth and advances; as it develops it neglects to recall what it definitely knows! More individuals the world over trust in rebirth than the individuals who don’t; for the most part those leaked in the Judeo-Christian standards.

At the point when formal instruction starts, the student is shelled with raw numbers that should be remembered. And every one of these things being instructed to the student are things to be gotten a handle on by the faculties and are limited to an experimentally material and solid universe of alleged learning, while it is the universe of Meaning that needs focusing.

The present techniques for training especially appear differently in relation to a genuine “instructive procedure,” as these words were initially planned. The existent model is to a greater degree a “putting into” than one of self-revelation. The understudies are being taught (from inculcare= to stamp into, or track upon) with an assemblage of pre-decided and very ordinary data of flawed legitimacy, particularly for the bringing into reality of another “world request,” which the new Aquarian Age guarantees us. Such another world request should be one dependent on the goals of world harmony and the steady utilization of generosity, philanthropy and genuine fellowship by every person to each other individual upon this world.

The instructive procedure must start with a decent and intentional objective. It must go past the simple granting of certainties to be recollected to one of scanning deep down for the genuine significance and causes behind the realities, which in the end should lead one to search inside the self for such importance. One mysterious instructor has communicated it along these lines: “Training can be a gutsy journey for the importance of life, including a capacity to think things through.” (Emphasis included).

The objective of training ought to be to advance the full self-acknowledgment and capability of each understudy; to empower the objective of the individual’s definitive association with the universe, as worried by Abe Maslow; that prominent analyst who passed on before his time. Narcissism must be risen above so the individual builds up an acknowledgment of his position in respect to the entire of presence. To appropriately instruct is to draw out of each understudy the potential insight which the person naturally has. Educators, molded by their own instilled encounters should be helped (however by whom?) to acknowledge and acknowledge the way that the kid, each tyke, has a group of all inclusive astuteness at the center of its being, as they themselves do, holding on to “illuminate” the understudy who can benefit from outside assistance to reach this collected assemblage of endless certainties which will fluctuate with every understudy.


The need in this day and age is to join the old knowledge and profound ideas of the East with the scholarly skill of the West. These two in mix will in the end convey to humankind the required profound love-insight for the taking care of every human issue.


Mental restoration basically implies carrying the individual identity into line with the developmental example of the Soul; the “God Within.”

Each country just as every individual has its very own Soul or individual mind which exhibits as its character or culture. Authentic actualities and the past states of each person and country have decided its present connections; there is a reliable patriotism or childishness when what is required is for instruction to show the understudy the need to assume self-liability, and to get a handle on the requirement for a sacrificial global investment. Each understudy needs to give genuine thought to his or her “place known to man.” Every person and each country needs to tackle its own identity issues, which are for the most part self-created. What’s more, behind every human undertaking are a mental thought process and objective. Any individual who can “figure truth,” can shape general assessment. Teachers ought to be in the vanguard of such “truth considering.”

In the verifiable East, instruction was constrained to a couple of exceptional people who demonstrated their potential for a more profound comprehension of the motivation behind all presence while the majority were disregarded. This was additionally valid in the West up until rather as of late in our history when training was legitimately required for the majority. Since that time the objective has been to convey each understudy to a characterized standard by which the instructive procedure would apparently be “reasonable for all.” Every individual is extraordinary, and savvy educators should be delicate, comprehension and receptive to the wide contrasts of every kid under their tutelage. Keep in mind, instructors and guardians of each depiction can’t educate their “charges,” what they themselves don’t have the foggiest idea.

Later on when the brain science of the western world gets up to speed to the Esoteric Psychology of the chronicled East, the all inclusive Law of Birth and Rebirth will be acknowledged. Such a required brain science has been in people in general area for more than seventy-five years. (It couldn’t be any more obvious, Esoteric Psychology, Volumes I and II, Alice A. Bailey, Lucis Press, Publishing House of World Good Will Organization, N.Y., London and Geneva, 1937 and 1941.) In these volumes the human Soul and the chakras and the “etheric envelope” through which we disseminate our individual energies are talked about in detail; none of which western brain science or training has yet found, despite the fact that there is a critical a urgent need to do as such. In what manner can brain research or instruction train a human substance when it doesn’t comprehend the genuine idea of the “Constitution of Man.” (See, A Textbook of Theosophy, Ch. V, International Theosophical Publishing House, Madras,(now Chennai), Adyar, India, 1927.)

In the East rebirth, which alongside karma, the Law of Retribution, or the Law of Cause and Effect, has been promptly acknowledged and connected to every individual understudy. “What so ever ye sow, so will you harvest,” Saint Paul lets us know. We are each individually recently earned position on the transformative circular segment (back to the House of the Father), and we each have a Soul Age, which must be found and acknowledged by the insightful teacher. Our spirit age decides our preparation for presentation to the universe of significance; the universe of Causes behind the universe of Effects. Not exclusively should “propelled” understudies be given uncommon thought and refined, the majority ought to likewise be presented to the profound thought that our materialistic world is one of Effects; a negligible impression of a higher universe of Truth, Beauty and Reality. Religion isn’t an issue to be considered here. (It couldn’t be any more obvious, Education In Light of Theosophy, by Annie Besant, Ibid, 1912.)


The main contrast between a prior world savage and a Savior, similar to our Christ, is one of a development of awareness. Like the f-stop on a camera the more open the cut the more light comes in. From the Instinct of the savage, we are currently at the further developed human phase of the Intellect. The following extension of cognizance drives us to Intuition, or Pure Reasoning and Direct Knowledge, which ought to be the objective of all advanced training. All representative, backhanded learning is only the translations of alleged expert figures, and that dependent on their own earlier instructions. (It’s obvious, From Intellect To Intuition, Alice A. Bailey, Lucis Publishing Company, World Goodwill, N.Y. 1932.)

Instinct creates when our awareness isn’t impeded or constrained by realities of sketchy significance, or confined by a universe of tangible induction. Truth can never be found by a mind detained in a universe of Materialism. The student must be sans left to extend his or her cognizance without obstruction from anythink…!
