How to Educate Effectively?

A Authority and Power entry published on August 19, 2009


The word Education comes from ex-ducare in Latin, which means “to bring out to the light”.
It does not say “to take knowledge inside”, no!

We’ve seen that knowledge follows a movement from outside to inside. It’s mental. It’s imposed by the ego.

We’ve also seen that wisdom takes the opposite direction. It sprouts from within and goes outside; it is natural, it is balanced, it is intuitive, it’s part of the inner being.

Thus, Ex-ducare shows wisdom, because it means: “Let it sprout from inside”.

A child who is connected to the source is deeply wise.
He hates obedience. He does not cope well with power and ego.

Those who call themselves the educators (teachers, parents…) think that to educate is to transmit their ideas, thoughts, beliefs and knowledge to the child or the student.

But this is only true in what has to do with the instruction on matter.
And we know that the instruction on matter is less than 25% of your full personal potential in your life.

These “educators” forget that the instruction on life has to be “ex-ducated”.
In other words, it has to sprout from inside.

These educators know absolutely nothing about someone else’s life.
No one can teach someone else how to live.
That’s something you have to let sprout from the inner being.
It’s unique and personal.

Every human being, no matter how old he is, is always an authority in what has to do with the instruction on life.

The educator’s role is only to help the student/child to let things come out;
To help him verbalize his emotions;
To help him to vibrate genuinely (link);
To help him to learn to accept all that he is;
To help him become an authority;
To help him not to be afraid of power;
To help him understand that this world of adults that we’ve created is not a natural world;
To help him understand that there is a solution for this world and that that solution is inside of him;
To help him reconnect to the source, to the I Am.
