~ “the most important thing you learned in school was not WHAT you learned rather HOW to learn”
When you were waiting to be born on the other side as pure spiritual energy, I’m guessing there were spiritual coaches telling you to watch out for Nigerian Princes that would let you in on their gold that was being held in customs by the Nigerian government scam. They probably told you how wonderful the womb would feel as all you had to do was pick a parent that wasn’t a crack head or pot head. You probably were told to remember that you had a spiritual version of yourself that was pure energy, and that you would occupy a carbon based biological version of yourself that was designed by the great Higher Power (We’ll use the term God) to be fruitful and multiply. Because God has respect and love for His creations, your spiritual conscious knowledge was erased prior to your conception. This was to keep anything from corrupting your learning experience. God calls this “Free Will”.
So you sat in your mother’s womb getting everything you needed through this umbilical cord. I truly believe this is why the concept of socialism comes so easy to people. It’s natural for all humans to get something for nothing. (That’s presuming that you’re not aborted and harvested for your fetal parts). You will note that all humans are not created equal. As you are nurtured, you feel (and fill) the need for productivity or manifest your love for sloth.
They (science) say, that babies that have mothers that take prenatal vitamins and actually read to their “bun in the oven” produce smarter children. So all of these precautions prepare the unborn for life after the womb. It is a magnificent advantage.
You sit waiting in your mother’s uterus. The temperature is perfect, you get everything you need to live through a life line called the umbilical cord. If you want proof of this amazing life line, reach down and feel your belly button.(Umbilicus) That was where your umbilical cord was attached. Perhaps (If you could remember such thoughts) you were wondering if you would die without the use of your attachment to your mother. You wondered: “Is there life after the womb and cord”? Perhaps you struggled to hold on to the advice you were given on the other side. Does this explain why some children are born and require very little guidance while other babies are born and must be civilized and have mores (pronounced Mor-rays) inculcated day after day?
The day of birth comes and goes. The amniotic fluid that kept you alive for 9 months has now been drained from the pool. As this happened, your quarters began to shake. In Hebrew, this shaking is referred to as a “Shemitah” (Pronounced Schmee-tah). It is the seventh year of the Hebrew calendar. The last day of the Shemitah year is Elul 29. For those of you interested in economy; We are in a Shemitah year and coming up on Elul 29 next month on September 13th. It’s a Sunday. But unlike past Shemitahs, this Shemitah is the 7th out of 49 years which leads to what was called the “Jubilee”. (Look it up) So as the womb started shaking or “contracting”, the paradigm was:
“Everybody out of the pool”.
So both you, then your umbilical cord slid down the water slide into warm blankets. Your power pack (or placenta) is the last one out. A clamp was put on your life cord, then your cord was tied off with a white ligature that looks like tennis shoe laces. Minutes later, your mom would expel your now needless “placenta”.
So life didn’t end after you outgrew your womb without a view. In fact, quite the contrary. It had just begun. Although you didn’t know it at the time, instead of sitting up watching “Gilligan’s Island”, you were sent to a new place where other kids your age went. It was this place called “School”. This is most likely where you discovered the concept that all men were not created equal. Some kids had red colored hair. Some kids had brown skin. Some kids could see the writings on the chalk board. (Something you might not have noticed until you stood up next to the large green structure).
For the next 13 years, your life consisted of preparation. You didn’t know it at the time. How on earth would you ever find use for the Pythagorean theorem? Why would I care if the square root of 144 was 12? How come nobody ever told Einstein that i comes before e except after c?
By the sixth grade (or grade 6 for my Canadian friends) you begin to think of school as just a job. Learning was work. Little did you know that the same thought process would help you figure out how to program a remote control device. At this point, it is imperative to have some type of guidance.
There are those who are blessed like James Leininger III who knew at the age of 4 what they wanted to be. Young James wants to fly FA-18s. Then again James is one of the most documented modern day “past life experiences” on record. He is supposedly the re-incarnation of James Huston Jr. who was a young Corsair pilot shot down in the south Pacific during WWII. But very few of us have that kind of direction. (or recall) At the age of 11, without direction you are a sailboat in the wind without a rudder nor anchor. For 13 years you go with the flow until the reality comes that you need to become accountable and responsible for yourself. All of a sudden, you start wishing you could go back to the third grade and take it seriously. You finally get it. Even without direction, if you have advanced tools in education (Which is getting harder and harder to acquire with many of your instructors being pot heads) you will find yourself working at “Waste Management” but you (my educated friend) will not be shoveling garbage,
rather signing the paychecks at the front office. There in lays the difference between achieving in class and sleeping in class.
Don’t think it ends there. Even if you go to a community college to try to heal your poor highschool grades, and you understand the Pythagorean theorem inside and out as well as the Magna Carta, you realize that your time on this planet or dimension is short. Once you realize that the most important thing you learned in school was not what you learned rather how to learn, you start to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Just as our time in the womb was brief, so is our time in the body. Just as there was another dimension after the womb, you must wonder if the process continues?
Even more important, knowing what we know now about the value of learning and preparation, ask yourself how important it is to prepare for the next dimension? I don’t know about 72 virgins or passing go to collect 200 in Karma and a new re-incarnated Buddhist body until I reach Nirvana; but I have been taught the tale of three dimensions after this one. Heaven, Hell and “Hell no we won’t go”
