“What you think is what you’ll become.”
These words encompass the only preaching required in modern schools.
The mind, even the adult mind is like a toddler. You can direct it in any direction and the mind will eagerly follow that path.
Unfortunately, this can lead down a path of negative activity or to more beneficial and positive attributes.
For thousands of years, people in power have recognised this and have been indoctrinating young minds ever since. Ask a Christian child why they are Christian? Ask a Muslim child, why they follow the Islamic faith?
No heaven or hell is required to account for the greatest of atrocities or the best of endeavors; only a mind with a purpose.
In my own experience, I have been lucky enough to be free from religion conditioning and my mind has found its own path to positively promote solar panel technology.
Recently, someone asked me if I’m not yet bored about writing about this subject for the last decade? I replied “No!” I would even go so far as to say “I write these articles in my sleep.”
Is this divine intervention or just my restless mind?
Well, I have never been short of enthusiasm and the drive in my mind has simply never ran out fuel, yet! Like the sun. But, once I had decided to dedicate my life to promoting the use of solar technology in a world that really needs them, I noticed a very strange phenomenon occurring in my life.
I would automatically wake up with ideas, articles and the answers to problems I may have been having when developing this web site coding. My mind was working overtime on problems as I slept. I have been told I regularly talk about solar panels in my sleep too.
The phrase “I’ll sleep on it” originates from this phenomenon.
I’ve given my mind a direction to follow , and it has set off enthusiastically on its own to achieve the task it has been given, just like a toddler. The power of the mind can be helpful or destructive in equal measures and it is this aspect of our humanity were the origins of good and evil comes from.
Does the power of prayer come from the mind?
Almost certainly, but they don’t want you to know that.
Keeping religious conditioning out of schools
Teaching our children that a god will condemn them for their thoughts; or who will continually watch and judge them on their every action night or day for the rest of their lives is actually a medieval way of population control.
This type of thinking originates from a paranoid Roman Emperor Constantine who used and shaped for his own benefit an underground following that challenged established Roman beliefs. This helped to preserve his hand on power towards the end of the Roman era. This worked so well, that those in power have emulated this indoctrination of the young to imprison the true power of the human mind.
Nothing diverts the mind than having to memorise the entire contents of an old book.
The world today has real global problems and yet we still allow our children to be imprisoned within their own minds through religious bondage.
This man-made way of policing thought, has brought nothing but endless wars in the name of “a loving god”. Men and boys have marched towards war with beautifully painted ideals, but no one told them that money was the real reason they were marching off to kill and be killed.
Unfortunately, the antiquated educational model of producing obedient armies based through religion should have no place in a modern technological society.
If our political class is serious about competing with superpowers like China (who don’t teach religion in schools), so taking the faith out of schools can be the only way to unlock the true potential of our minds.
Religion, especially within our multi-cultural society should be kept outside the school. Nobody is trying to ban Christmas or other religious based holidays, but the time for learning to survive in a failing global world should come before the outdated Roman based dogma.
Modern education should be based on faith in yourself, rather than faith in the unknown.
Once pupils understand they have the most powerful tool in the universe and learn to direct its awesomeness towards whatever goal they choose, then the power of the mind will do the rest.
All it takes is for 5% of parents to say “no” to affect real change. Constantine knew it, medieval kings knew it and the political elite is still scared of it today.
