Education

I feel I could become an educational scholar, get my PhD or something, in the field of education for children. This week, among other readings, I have read two interesting tidbits on education. One you can find here. The other I will write down here for future reference:

“Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die.”
– John Taylor Gatto

Here’s to my children, and your road map through life. You were born here…

And the rest is unfolding. In order to learn, may you first empty your cup so that it can be filled. May you always invite in humility and not be in a rush to get everything you “want”. May you be open. Peaceful. Joyous.
