Change outdated behavior patterns
Good education should, therefore, also aim to provide students with the knowledge and understanding they need to understand themselves and their environment and to actively shape their future. The ultimate goal of any education should therefore be self-knowledge or self-discovery.
The New Age is not about accepting these old, outdated patterns, but about recognizing them, changing them, and replacing them with new, contemporary patterns. Anyone who has had a dog, for example, knows how difficult they are to train. This mechanism of changing behaviors in pets works on a similar level to that of children and adults. It is always the same principle: First we must recognize the cause of the behavior, and then we must practice discipline and persistence. Without discipline and persistence, knowledge of the cause is useless, because we are unable to really change anything.
Self-knowledge as the key to education
It is well known that it is sometimes very difficult to impose the necessary discipline, especially in raising children. Children and animals can challenge us and test us over and over again to see how consistent we are. The one thing that can help us in this great challenge is to have a goal. The goal should not be to live a comfortable life and have peace from screaming children. The goal should be much bigger and more significant: the intention to help shape the next generation. “I want Planet Earth, when I incarnate on it again, to be even better than I found it.” That should be the goal of all of us! Without such high goals, we are doomed to despair and failure in raising our children, for we are acting selfishly.
Children are like open vessels that imitate our behavior. In this sense, they are female-receiving, while their parents are male-projecting. Thus, we hold a powerful key to the evolution of humanity. We can change a world in such a way that we want to incarnate in it again. The New Age has already begun. The sooner we accept it and take the necessary steps, the better: SELF-KNOWLEDGE!
