The ultimate source of happiness is to be found within

The ultimate source of happiness is to be found within

Delivering joyful education should be the priority of expertise and latest tools. Of all the phases through human life and in developmental stages, childhood is the simplest and the easiest to make happy and joyful. A successful school is a school where children enjoy going there. We are responsible in creating a school where a child wants to go and where he is joyful to belong to. There is substantial scientific and medical evidence today, that if you remain in a pleasant state of experience, that is when your body and brain works at its best. We have always known this by experience, but today there is data that a joyful experience will enable and empower a human being to a very high level of perception and performance. There may be many methods to reach this but one fundamental is, if you are not joyful, you are not going to inspire anybody to be joyful. This is the foundation for a positive education and a positive parenthood. If this one thing is embedded in us, methods, different tools will come from experts, but to use them in an efficient way, we need people who know how to make life beautiful. The evolution of a teacher and a parent is the most important thing. Everything else is secondary. Children grow through life models and follow the adult as an example. The adult that delivers this role model is the most important factor in education. The biggest investment should be first put in that. The evolution of the teacher does not mean just more and more tricks about education. As a human being, if the teacher and the parent blossoms, becomes a joyful, loving, compassionate human being, and above all, a conscious human being, every little tool will become then a powerful process. Education is serving truth and truth means what really works. It will then allow to create a better place than the actual one we are living in.

Clinical psychologists inevitably tell how children lost an essential piece of themselves in their adulthood. They are on the precipice of enormous change, and the highest aim of education is getting towards awareness. To be approved, to feel worthy. Ambition is beyond being in the best school or the best university or the best job. Students feel the anxiety around them, their family, their environment, their teachers and the world anxiety. Happiness is a euphemism for success that replaces wealthy or pretty or famous. Because who they truly are is lying there inside of them and it is limitless. Kids and students raised by fear will struggle to reach their full potential and their truthful essence. The initial and ultimate source of happiness is to be found within. The important thing is will you blossom to the fullest human being or not, that is needed to be taken care of. That what we should look at, consciousness. Education is to give access to the source of creation that also drops in each human being. This is not about being a superhuman. This is about realizing that being human it is super.
