Education: it is about the Climate.

 

Why the climate?

We sometimes forget that we are part of an environment. That we are nurtured. Our values and concepts are nurtured by our surroundings. Instead of systems that tell us whether we are wrong, it would be most preferable to be shaped rather than told. Curiosity is an engine to achievement. If we stifle curiosity, we create obstacles and personal development. More importantly, creativity and risk taking. Not so much the risk taking against the law, but perhaps against ourselves. The best way to discover oneself is to push oneself beyond their own limits. However, if that is stifled, then we will be unable to truly discover out own potential. So challenge the norm…

A Standardised Society?

Most developed societies have standardisations to measure success or wealth. We are all familiar with the notion that some people like examinations and some fair better with projects and essays. This notion did not formulate out of nowhere. We need to embrace the varying type of people in this world. In this case, we cannot measure ourselves by how well we fair in examinations. If we continue to let standardised tests define our individuality, we will before a standardised society. In some sense we already are, and hence that is why we need need studies in psychology, behaviour and neuroscience, because no matter how unified society is, people are not…

We choose to shut out the importance of loving ourselves. And instead we seek drama externally so that we do not need to question ourselves and decide what really makes us happy.

Being vulnerable is not a weakness or strength. its something you have to embrace in life. When you can be vulnerable, you are able to ‘breakdown’ or dis-assemble yourself. -only then will you know who you are.

A watch is an object that reveals the time. Some of us are fascinated by how it even works without a battery. However, if you dis-assembles it, understand it and re-construct it, one can find ways to improve it over time. The watch would be solid and durable when put together, but vulnerable when it is dis-assembled. However, one can only understand and comprehend the watch when it is dis-assembled.
