Education of the future

an Exerpt from Conscious Parenting Course by Nataša Pantović Nuit

Kahlil Gibran on children quote, article Education of the future from Conscious Parenting Book by Nataša Pantović Nuit
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.”  (Kahlil Gibran, On Children)

We cannot aim to prepare our for the careers of the future. We live in such a dynamic world that what was a norm 10 years ago, almost certainly will not be reality in 10 years’ time.

The of the future is much more challenging, shifting further away from ‘spelling and formulas’ towards the development of cognitive thinking where children are given tools to develop their own world, when their time comes.

Spiritual Quotes 

Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950)

An illumined teacher and a yoga master

Aurobindo says, 'I have three madnesses:

  • I firmly believe that the accomplishments, genius, higher education and learning and wealth that  has given me are His. I have a right to spend for my own purposes only what is needed for the maintenance of the family and if otherwise absolutely essential.
  • By whatever means I must get the direct realisation of the Lord. The religion of today consists in repeating the name of God every now and then, in praying to Him in the presence of everybody and in showing people how religious one is; I do not want it. If the Divine is there, then there must be a way of experiencing His existence, of realising His presence; however hard the path, I have taken a firm resolution to follow it...
  • Whereas others regard the country as an inert object, and know it as the plains, the fields, the forests, the mountains and rivers, I look upon my country as the mother, I worship her and adore her as the mother...  I know I have the strength to uplift this fallen race; it is not physical strength, I am not going to fight with the sword or with the gun, but with the power of knowledge...  God sent me to the earth to accomplish this great mission'
