My parents always told me to work hard at school because achieving good grades leads to financial success. Besides this, I was told that academic education will make me exceptionally intelligent.
However, when I grew up and studied successful and highly intelligent individuals, I realized that academic education neither made them intelligent nor successful.
Also, I discovered the disastrous effects of academic education.
In today’s article, I will provide the 5 main implications of academic education that make me doubt its importance.
1. Academic Education Prepares us to be Workers
Academic education prepares us to work for other people for the rest of our lives. Teachers always told us that getting a high-paying job is the only path to prosperity. Therefore, we strived to pass exams so that we become employees and not employers.
2. Academic Education Makes Us to Have a Wrong Understanding of Intelligence
School results in people having a wrong understanding of what it means to be intelligent. It makes people believe reading and memorizing stuff makes them intelligent, although intelligence means the ability to solve problems. Furthermore, school makes people who fail their exams think they are unintelligent while it makes those who pass exams believe they are intelligent.
3. Academic Education Teaches us to Never Think Outside the Box
Life requires us to think creatively: to think outside the box. However, academic education trained us to think according to specific rules. We had to think the way teachers wanted us to think, and we were awarded low grades for thinking outside the box.
4. Academic Education Kills Talents
All Children are Born Artists: The Problem is to Remain Artists Till They Grow Up- Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973)
Academic education has destroyed billions of talents. School made us believe our talents won’t make us successful because the only way we could achieve success was by passing exams and getting a job. For this reason, most of us avoided developing our divine talents and focused on passing exams.
5. Academic Education Makes us to Fear Making Mistakes
School made us fear making mistakes because we were awarded low grades for providing wrong answers. Teachers advised us to avoid making mistakes although mistakes provide valuable lessons which enable us to develop our skills.

The True Meaning of ‘Love Yourself’
Many spiritual and personal development teachers advise us to love ourselves because self-love increases happiness levels, boosts self-esteem, improves physical health, and so on. However, although we know the importance of loving ourselves, most of us don’t know the meaning of self-love. For this reason, today I’ll share with you the true meaning of loving thyself.
Loving yourself means taking good care of your body through exercising and eating healthy foods. It also means loving your physical features and thanking life for them because they make you a unique individual.
Besides this, loving yourself means taking care of your mental state by ensuring that you only think higher thoughts because they provide you with a sense of inner peace. It also means eliminating suppressed negative energies within you by loving others and striving to forgive those who wrong you.
Moreover, loving yourself means forgiving yourself for all the bad things you did in the past and understanding that everyone, including you, makes mistakes. It means avoiding being harsh at yourself for failing to meet your expectations and understanding that life always gives people second chances. Loving thyself also means accepting whatever happened in the past and avoiding to blame yourself for your failures.
Furthermore, loving yourself means doing what you love, and avoiding jobs that hurt your physical, mental, and spiritual health. It also means doing what makes you happy, and what ensures that you have a prosperous future.
Additionally, you love yourself when you put yourself first by unfriending time wasters, walking out of abusive relationships, and avoiding people who never add value to your life. You also love yourself when you focus on your strengths and ignore your weaknesses.
Moreover, you love yourself when you take care of your mind by meditating, reading inspiring books, and avoiding negative people. And lastly, you love yourself when you take care of your soul by expanding your consciousness and being virtuous.
In summary, loving yourself means taking good care of your mind, soul, and body, and ensuring that everything

Why We Are Our Biggest Enemy
Most of us blame life for our misfortunes and frustrations. We think we are unhappy because life is not on our side. Little do we know that we are our biggest enemy because we are frustrated although life blessed us with wonderful things that ensure we live well.
For instance, life blessed us with imagination so that we become creative and use our creativity to improve our lives. However, we use imagination to visualize the worst possible outcome. Moreover, it gave us memory to remember and correct our past mistakes, but we use it to relive the bad things that happened in the past.
Besides this, life gave us an intuitive voice to guide us, but we let our egos direct us towards unfulfilling lives. It also provided us with the stars to please our eyes and beautiful views to relax the mind, but we find these wonders useless.
Additionally, life gave us a mind with powerful magnetic forces to help us attract what we mostly dwell on, but we dwell on negative thoughts and therefore, attract negative events in our lives. It also created many human beings so that we support and love each other, but we are selfish, and we wish bad things upon others. We then attract these terrible things because wishing bad things for others lowers our vibration.
Furthermore, life provides us with endless opportunities. It ensures that we get whatever we want so long as we are courageous and risk-taking. However, we are afraid to take risks, and we complain when we don’t move forward. It gave us talents that can employ us and make us reach our full potentials, but we choose to work in boring jobs that never lead to growth.
Life is good. It gave us amazing bodies to enable us to experience the physical world fully. But we hate our bodies because we compare them with unrealistic bodies the media shows us. We also destroy our bodies by eating unhealthy foods, and we blame God for giving us a bad body and making us prone to diseases.
Furthermore, life gave us a self-healing body that naturally gets rids of toxins, and medicinal plants that treat various diseases, but we invest in pharmaceutical drugs that only eliminate the symptoms of our illnesses. We complain when we can’t access health care yet there are many affordable traditional treatment methods that can completely eradicate our ailments.
We are never thankful to Infinite Intelligence for allowing us to experience life in a physical realm. Moreover, we don’t live fully by living moment by moment and trusting that everything will fall into place. Lastly, we never meditate on life and realize how life always ensures that we live well. For this reason, we are our biggest enemy.
