Where did the concept of a school, an organized, systematic method of thought development, develop from? Sumerian texts speak of groups which in ancient times carried the responsibility of mentoring the next generation. This was called the "Order of Melchizedek", an institution that transmitted the knowledge in circulation among the elders to the younger. Education prepared people for the rigors of life, developing social, hunting, building, and farming skills. You might say they were more advantageous to those living from nature, as mankind should. Our educational system has been distilled into a form of indoctrination into an industrial-military mindset. To survive, you must mold yourself into serving an industrialized, scientific society. This adjustment, over time, causes one to lose perspective of one's individuality to a degree, in turn raising the question of the reason for self existence. One's senses are overwhelmed with a feeling one must do something in response to the ever present call of selfhood. You feel the need to look from another perspective that sees the rewards of adherence to this programmed consciousness as valueless, lacking the ability to fulfill the depths of a soul hungry for self expression.
You look at life in a new way, from a new perspective, and wonder why you have so much in money and property yet happiness, contentment, and love seem more elusive than ever. You are also feeling something so 'gut' level as to be primordial. A sense that a great change is about to occur yet at the same time not knowing how or what this change would bring. You know you are being lied to, have been lied to all your life, and expect to be lied to in the future. You are also aware that education has prepared you for nothing that is important in life, especially survival, yet your senses keep telling you to 'do something', your very survival depends on it. But what?
Dare you cast aside all your efforts at what the ego has strived to achieve in search of what seems to be the only thing that will satisfy, not even aware of what that something is? The trinkets achieved by your selfish ego seem to shrink in comparison to what is being offered you. A vast treasure of unimaginable wealth in knowledge, ability, and freedom of expression. What has held you back from accepting this? How could you have been so foolish? Your only ability to make a worthy contribution to society seems to lie in utilizing the small talent placed in your hand. A small talent that can unlock worlds of knowledge and understanding within a fraction of time. Is it possible that modern man has succumbed to the belief that he is more evolved than his primitive ancestors who held knowledge of the stars and their orbits in their minds? How do we work to regain of such magnitude that was lost eons ago? And could it be the only way lies before us in a simple acceptance of the truth of who we are?
As we awaken to ancient memories that are being stirred within us, we feel a longing for a soul-level connection, an affinity for others unrealized by mechanized man. Soon the separation between those who will follow this heart-felt desire and those who remain fear based will become more apparent than ever. What will be the result of this? Certain forces have already been gathering momentum toward a disastrous end, forcing a divergence into an entirely new stage of existence. We have no alternative but to advance, either to eternal destruction or eternal evolution.
