Lifelong Learning Quotes Flower of Life

  • Uneducated does not mean unlearned, it just means that I haven't had to conform to societal norms and that I won't have to shed years of indoctrination. (Miro Siegel)
  • You have schools, but we know how to look after the forest. It is very important for the governments of the world to listen to us, the indigenous people who have lived on the planet for thousands of years. (Davi Kopenawa, Yanomami shaman cited at Survival International, dated 2017, accessed 6 July 2017)

  • Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: 'You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself — educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society.’ (Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook)
Book of Life

  • Generations of human beings have lived very well even though they were unable to read or write. But we now live in a culture which demands that we know how to read and write, and it is unthinkable that we could do without these skills. But we should not stop there since reading and writing are two activities that we must also learn to exercise on other planes. 
    According to Initiatic Science, to read is to be able to decipher the subtle and hidden aspect of objects and beings, to interpret the symbols and signs that Cosmic Intelligence has placed everywhere in the great book of the universe. And to write is to be capable of leaving our mark on this great book, of influencing stones, plants, animals and human beings through the magical force of our spirit. Even being able to read and write in all languages that exist in the world is not enough; we must prepare ourselves to read and write in all realms of the universe. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
