Traditional schooling as most of us remember has been rigidly divided into separate faculties such as physics, mathematics, biology, arts, literature, history, geography, politics and economics. Since we are very young we were taught these subjects in a logic driven, rote-learnt and test-intensive way, with little or no connection to ourselves. We had no idea why we were here in the world and what we really wanted. Schooling was a chore we had to put up with so that one day we might find a regular job. We were also simultaneously indoctrinated to follow beliefs and traditions handed down from our genetic lineage, religious or cultural environment without any inner reasoning or enlightenment only to fit in with everyone around us.

Some of us somehow stumbled upon Who We Are, Why We Are Here and How We Can Live Better. We call this Spiritual Awakening. How about if we received such practical and life enriching education right from our childhood that we felt empowered, joyful and energized, eager to live, learn and create a wholesome life?

Here are some subjects we can consider including in our NEW systems of school and home education for our children to replace the existing ones:

  1. Right Ways of Breathing, Relaxation and Meditation
  2. Right types of Food and Nutrition for Good Health
  3. Yoga and Exercises for Inner and Outer Well-being
  4. Various Flowers, Trees, Herbs, Plants and how to grow and care for them
  5. Various Animals and Pets and how to look after and relate with them
  6. Eco Friendly and Energy Efficient Lifestyles
  7. Ethics, Rights and Responsibilities towards Self and Others
  8. Positive Affirmations and Visualizations to create your life
  9. Mind-power and ESP for Awakening and Self Discovery
  10. Our Life Purpose, Choices and Discernment
  11. Consciousness, Evolution and Who We Are
  12. Empathy, Intuition and Communication to Understand Self and Others
  13. Lessons in Kindness and Karma
  14. Eliminating Addictions and Excesses through Self Contentment
  15. Secrets of Nature and Discovering New Truths about our Reality
  16. Dreams and Subconscious Psychology for Deeper Healing
  17. Transforming Fears, Guilt, Sadness, Anger and Self-doubt
  18. Prevention and Cure of Various Diseases
  19. Inner Science of Energy, Vibrations and Holistic Healing
  20. Creativity, Fun, Joy and Laughter
  21. Unity, World-peace and Global Welfare

Not only would these subjects combine various departments and disciplines such as psychology, physics, language, music, art, medicine, biology, culture, politics, economics and law from a positive and futuristic point of view, but also introduce the much needed dimensions of inner consciousness, self-development and spiritual science that are much missing from education for thousands of years. As a result we would see a happier, positive and kinder world for all of us.
