To view educational researcher, Sugata Mitra’s original Ted Talk video on how children, if given the chance, learn on their own, go here. When we choose to believe that “children don’t want to learn; therefore, we must force them to learn,” don’t we poison the well of learning?
Sugata Mitra and the children in the video, provide us with another way to see ourselves. Instead of creating an education system based on the idea that we’re little more than blank slates to be written on, empty sponges to be filled, or clever robots to be programmed and controlled through a system of reward and punishment, it reveals the reality and power of our own built-in impulse to learn.
Is this idea worth sharing? Absolutely! Others are already spreading it around the world because we know changes in perspective like this need to happen. Won’t you spread it around as well?
Waking up, wising up, and rising up to greater awareness and understanding!

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
How we define ourselves and All That Is forms our intent, which, in turn, forms our reality.
In other words, we create reality from what we individually and collectively choose to believe about ourselves and All That Is.
If we don’t CONSCIOUSLY choose our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb them from our surroundings.
If our beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations create reality, can we afford not to question them?
The more we love, understand and appreciate ourselves, the better we treat ourselves, and the world.
