5 Catastrophic Effects of Academic Education that Make Me Doubt Its’ Importance

Published

on

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.

Why Reality is an Illusion: Five Major Factors That Influence How We Perceive Reality

Published

on

‘Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.’ – Albert Einstein

We love advising each other to be realistic without knowing that reality doesn’t exist since it’s an illusion. An African’s reality is different from an American’s reality. Moreover, a cat’s reality is different from your reality although we live in the same physical realm. For this reason, the only reality is Infinite Intelligence/God. Everything else is an illusion.

To prove reality is an illusion, I’ll share five factors that influence how we perceive reality.

1.Belief Systems

Most cultures’ belief systems affect how they perceive reality. For instance, the Maasai warrior believes a boy only graduates to manhood if he kills a lion. This belief system affects a Maasai’s perception of reality as he might believe that all adult males who haven’t killed a lion are still boys. For this reason, the Maasai might think Bill Gates is still a boy because he’s never killed a lion.

Besides this, an individual who believes snakes are bad will be scared to death if he encounters a snake while an Indian girl who plays with cobras won’t be scared of snakes.

2.Senses

Senses are the biggest proof that reality is an illusion because animals’ super/extraordinary senses make them experience a different reality from us. For instance, while we can’t detect anything at night, snakes have infrared sensory organs that allow them to detect warm blooded animals at night. Also, a bear can zero in on the smell of a rotting carcass a mile away but we can’t.

3.The Information We’ve Been Exposed to

The information we’ve been exposed to affects how we perceive reality because it shapes our belief system. For instance, an individual who has read many inspirational books might believe it’s possible to be rich regardless of one’s social-economic status. On the other hand, a person who has never read these books might think it’s unrealistic to believe that one can rise from rags to riches.

4.Dimensions

Dimensions are levels of consciousness that affect how we perceive reality. People stuck in the 3rd dimension of consciousness believe human beings are victims of circumstances. Besides this, they believe the physical reality is the only reality that exists.

On the other hand, people who ascend to higher dimensions, such as the 5th dimension, believe in the existence of a spiritual world. Moreover, they believe they are limitless beings who are masters of their circumstances.

5.Emotions

Your emotional state determines your reality. For instance, the sunset might be a beautiful experience when you are happy, but boring when you are sad. Furthermore, fear can result in you seeing things that don’t exist.

Concluding Remarks

That being said, no one should ever tell you to be realistic because reality is subjective. It’s affected by belief systems, sensuality, information, dimensions, and emotions.

Besides this, whenever you are sad remember that you have created that reality and for that reason, you can make yourself happy by changing your belief system, and emotional state.

And lastly, realize ‘there’s no reality except the one contained within us. That’s why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside of them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.’ – Hermann Hesse

6 Popular Lies We’ve Believed Our Whole Lives

Published

on

Most of us believe the lies we’ve been told by the media, books, teachers, and other sources of information because we never assess the validity of the information we receive. For this reason, we’ve let lies govern our lives hence resulting in us having a wrong understanding of life.

Here are some of the main lies we’ve believed since we were young.

1.Suffering is Normal

Religion and the media have made us believe that we were born to suffer. We thus believe suffering is a normal occurrence, and we avoid trying to free ourselves from suffering.

However, suffering is abnormal, and it occurs when people fall out of alignment with Infinite Intelligence/God by embracing negative qualities such as laziness, ignorance, doubt, pessimism, greed, selfishness, self-centeredness, and so on. Suffering will stop existing if we all get into alignment with Infinite Intelligence by embracing positive qualities.

2.Religions Teach Different Things

Religions have disunited the modern society because people think they teach different things. People are too dumb to realize that they teach the same things. For instance, all religions lay emphasis on virtue and teach about a place/state of no-suffering. The only difference between religions is that they teach the same things in different ways.

3.Financial Success is the Ultimate Goal of Life

Financial success is important because it improves our comfort levels and allows us to help others. However, it’s not the ultimate goal of life. The ultimate goal of life is to understand how Infinite Intelligence works so that we can fall into alignment with its greatness.

4.Marijuana is a Bad Drug

Marijuana was important to many ancient societies as they used it for medicinal and religious purposes. Besides, some societies used it to make paper. Today, some physicians use it to treat mental conditions, and many people secretly use it for mental relaxation. This drug is only bad when over-consumed.

5.The Government is Dedicated to Serving Us

Most of us still believe the government is highly interested in serving our needs. We participate in voting because we believe the leaders we choose will serve our interests.  Little do we know that these folks are only interested in serving their interests. Their families come first, their dogs second, and we come last. 

6.Ancient Man was Dumb

Ever since we were young, we thought ancient man was dumb because we believed everything the media and our teachers told us. We think we are the most intelligent humans that ever lived. We are unaware that ancient folks were so intelligent that they understood the importance of the natural environment and invented technologies that modern man can’t. Besides, we don’t know that ancient men understood the medicinal, nutritional, and spiritual value of all plants although they never attended school.

N/B – Read Llailla Africa’s book, ‘Africa’s Holistic Health’ for more about the ancients’ knowledge about the medicinal, nutritional, and spiritual value of all plants.

Concluding Remarks

In conclusion, never accept any piece of information without analyzing its validity.  By doing this, you’ll never suffer because your thoughts and actions will only be guided by the TRUTH, and The Truth Shall Set You Free

Anyway, besides the above lies, there are many lies we’ve believed and allowed to guide our thoughts and actions. You are free to mention them in the comment box below.
