Transformation of consciousness is the number one job in education. It is as important to teach how to get rid of information as it is to take in information. What we don’t teach our students is a blueprint of consciousness of which the mind is a piece. We don’t ask our children what do you envision as a healthy mind?
If we are serious about trauma informed education we must go deeper. This isnt a crisis left to psychologists and neuro science. This isn’t another aboutism. This is you and me.
Look everything we do is being run by our Subconscious mind and anyone with half a heart and who realizes how conditioned our minds are, knows everyday day is trash day. We all know that the human mind needs radical transformation and the old structure of consciousness is killing us. So call it what you want Ho’oponopono cleaning, Buddhist emptying the mind, Christ purification, Maimonides negation, alchemy, shamanism, we need to transform what school is and every other so called institution. But money and training is our undoing. We follow both. They bring security.
Until the core curriculum mirrors deeper inner wisdom as the number one goal of education, trauma informed makes little sense. Ironically self empowerment comes through learning about ourselves and a pruning of deeper layers of consciousness. Less is more. Each one of us must become deep consciousness cleaners. And btw a clue to consciousnesses cleaning starts with an understanding of the limbic system, the so called tree of knowledge.
So who or what is in power? The More or the less, who do we follow? We are content and form driven by nature which makes us ever so susceptible. Hard to teach the minds undoing. If you take a trauma informed path then the understanding of the less takes on great meaning and great inner work. If you can imply this to a student that is a miracle. In all my years of so called education, the only teachers that impressed me were those who showed humanity and non pretentiousness. The higher the education the greater the arrogance. I went to prestigious schools and realized it was just another caste system that held the allure and spell casting wand over to be or not to be. This is the goal of education, to become anointed or shunned. By the time we become anointed you are 100,000 in debt! Now that is what I call some powerful Voodoo! Talk about selling your soul to the devil. If we are to talk about bullying then lets start with the inherent caste consciousness ego structure of our society. Our students are being misled that education will anoint them as somebody the day they get their degree. High powered job, top of their class, go getters, respected citizens. This is the wrong focus and if we are to address trauma we must have some outer vision that reflects true personal development. The positive intent of trauma is the groundwork for higher and deeper education. As of now it is one in a few billion ascended teachers who lead the way. Time to change those odds.Share
