My Guide to Cosmic Education

18 Jul

What is Cosmic Education?

Who am I?

Where do I come from?

Where am I going?

What is my Cosmic Purpose?

Are these questions REALLY appropriate for children age 6-9 (and 9-12) ?

YES!

Why?

Start 0:30 of clip below from Dead Poet’s Society:

Poetry, Beauty, Truth

“That you are here? That life exists!

…That the powerful play goes on! And you may contribute a verse

THAT THE POWERFUL PLAY GOES ON

AND YOU MAY CONTRIBUTE A VERSE.

What will your verse be?”

That, in a nutshell, is your ‘Cosmic Task’. What will YOUR verse be?

“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never do something creative.” – Ken Robinson

Steve Jobs agrees that we have a Cosmic Task

Cosmic Education:

 

http://www.upworthy.com/young-steve-jobs-once-said-something-profound-about-other-people-not-being-smarter-than-you?c=ufb1

“The World IS the way it IS….” No, “The world was made by people (no smarter) than people just like you” says Steve Jobs. I would say that all persons are smart and people are even smarter. Because when persons get together and collaborate as people and peoples we get civilization. Humans, as a civilization, have been able to move from the stone age to the stars. And the technological progress is expanding at an exponential rate. Just look at what we’ve done, as a people, with the internet from 1996 to 2014!

The task of the child is to find her or his cosmic task. We all have something to contribute.
