Philosophy of Education: A very wise man once told me that an individual cannot go farther than that individual's learning. I think we can agree that knowledge is a process that can help the brain, mind and soul to act in unison toward achievement of goals. Knowledge, learning and synthesis of the three can bring about levels of comprehension, thinking, revelation, manifestation and expansion that will result in what some might call "miracles.” The foundation of that knowledge is how it is received and molded into the self in order to produce change within the individual. Thus, all education is profitable for the advancement of the soul; however, some education may not be profitable for the active, positive evolution of the soul. Thus the essence of the relationship between teacher and student is one of questioning, synthesis and balance. This type of education is beyond doctrine and dogma and has no orthodoxy. The big “mystery” in all this is that the data, examples, thought, art and music are contained in all the world’s religions, philosophies, arts and sciences. Our work is to explore all of it to find out or remember what applies to our path and progression.
