The new frontier ideas on child development emphasize joy, serenity of mind, harmony with nature.
Both reason and intuition are acknowledged as innate powers educable in everyone from birth.
Creative talent is one of the spiritual powers in human beings, part of the spectrum of consciousness which recognizes the faculties of understanding, of discrimination, and of direct knowing.
Highlighting this, Mme. Blavatsky wrote in her Key to Theosophy (pp. 270-71) that children “should above all be taught self-reliance, love for all men, altruism, mutual charity, and more than anything else, to think and reason for themselves.” Does this describe our public schools today? Hardly.
Intellectual testing is the norm, at least in New York City and other major school systems. Hugs, smiles and play are out, and unbelievably, a kid can even “fail” Kindergarten in this system! All the while filled up with junk foods laced with GMO’s, pesticides and antibiotics! Ouch.
“We would reduce the purely mechanical work of the memory to an absolute minimum,” Blavatsky continued, “and devote the time to the development and training of the inner senses, faculties and latent capacities.” (Unlike today’s educational monopolies)
“We would endeavour to deal with each child as a unit,” she said, “and to educate it so as to produce the most harmonious and equal unfoldment of its powers so that its special aptitudes should find their full natural development.” (Assuming they are not already vaccine damaged).
“We should aim at creating free men and women, free intellectually, free morally, unprejudiced in all respects, and above all things, unselfish.”
But what future is there for a child today who is irrevocably damaged because they received toxic chemicals and pollutants — pesticides in food, water, and aluminum containing vaccines to name a few? The following story is a mere introduction to the ongoing tragic abuse faced unknowingly by parents and children in today’s profit driven, material, chemical dominated world.
