I contend here that we don’t need more civics in our schools to repair our world. We need more basics.
What are the basics? Matters like:
(1) We all are the same God-Soul incarnated in illusory materiality, which ultimately disappears like smoke, leaving the Truth revealed.
All of us are on a journey from God to God, from ignorance to knowledge, from darkness unto Light.
(2) The world of matter (mater, Mother) is an educational domain in which we learn what we are not and what we are. Progress is judged by the amount we’ve freed the divine qualities within us to shine through.
(3) All of life is governed by universal law and the only thing that matters is Divine Will and the Divine Plan. At the risk of repeating myself, we know the Mother’s Plan is the only one that can be relied on to occur. She says:
“I know very clearly, sweet one, as do you, if it is not [in] my Plan, then it will not occur.” (1)
(4) Divine Will is translated into universal law and lays out the ways and means to return to our original state of purity, innocence, and love upon finally realizing who we are.
(5) We can never die. Just as we step out of our clothes at bedtime, so we step out of our bodies at life’s end. What happens to the body is of no further concern to us. We face a new world that beckons us, holds our attention, and satisfies us completely.
And so on.
As an historian, I noticed that our education in earlier times seemed more heavily weighted towards producing “good citizens” than it was to producing wise and loving individuals.
It was weighted towards civics rather than basics. And it may still be the case today.
If I look back on my own life, the lack of taught skills in communication, relationships, parenting, and other basic matters left me thrashing and flailing in one relationship after another. I did not know what I was doing.
The only thing that held me back from going into negative territory was the upbringing I received – in basics – from my mother.
In the background, my own family was fighting and dying, without my having been given any of the tools I might need to weather the storms or reach the destination.
We’ve taken our cherished nationalism (civics) as far as it can go and all too often it has only produced dictatorships and wars for world domination.
If we don’t see in our own countries the dictatorship of government, Big Tech, the banking world, the justice system, the medical world, and the educational system, I’m not sure how much more blatant it needs to become before we will.
Unless we’ve simply closed our eyes to it.
Please, this time around, more basics, less civics. In our new educational system, let’s teach the skills an individual needs to make a go of life, not what we’ve simply turned into the means of rivalry and war.
