You were BORN to study…
along with all of nature, each species, all of consciousness.
A current problem with our culture and most educational systems is the coercion towards the subject of “studying.”
To study is to look at closely in order to observe, to learn.
Every animal has an instrument used to compute and synthesize incoming information from their environment. All alive does, too. Amoeba, plants, insects, cats, squirrels… each are in the process of taking in data, recognizing patterns, synthesizing options, making decisions, reacting according to their best understanding. The brain of a human is the ultimate device used to study. Human beings are constantly utilizing that brain to some degree or another to study some thing or another. We MUST learn.
It is not just a fetish, studying is a compulsion!
Admit it: There IS some occurrence which would draw your attention instantly and keep you riveted: a natural disaster, a neighborhood scandal playing out a block away, something, some body…. You would willingly, energetically, focus your attention, attempting to figure out and learn what was going on.
Because mortals have largely been incorrectly taught, or rather, re-trained in counterproductive ways, studying has often become a drudgery and a “have to.” Because the Heart of the matter has been withheld, because the knowledge of pursuing one’s humane passion with all the fervor inherent in pursuing one’s humane interest WITH PASSION and most have been taught, instead, to use their amazing brain to look at, “pay attention to” what OTHERS have ascribed as important, interesting, worthwhile…
Because of all of this, the ability and desire to study correctly has been dismantled and burned. Pure little children study! Constantly! So do squirrels. Lions. Chimpanzees. Bacteria.
Once someone outside of themselves compels the topic, however, one’s own natural curiosity wanes. For the religious, this is “Lucifer’s plan” to subtly impede “free agency” and create slaves… “for a (supposed) good cause.”
But… you can gain back your will, your creative compulsion to apply your attention to what is of interest TO YOU! It may take time, and, according to your age and specific situation, you may have to buckle up and pay that attention to what is required within your educational system. But, even then you have a choice. You can decide, Okay, perhaps I am being mandated to study these particular subjects for this specified end result. Okay, maybe there is little wiggle room for change. I can either do this with a feeling of being compelled, or I can choose to do this because I have found some benefit for me.
IF you can possibly find a reason you can FEEL good about, then you can engage while applying your own will. You will then cease feeling coerced, and will benefit so much more in the long run. Accept your schooling with gratitude. LOOK FOR the crumb inherent in your proscribed course that IS of interest to you. Use that brain to process, analyze, think, find the patterns, deduce all you can from a place of awe and wonder. Look for the jewels of insight that cause you to marvel again about life. Keep a notebook with these pearls. Read and think about and do life experiments upon those subjects that you are most interested in. Become creative. You can probably find ways to integrate your deepest fascinations into your proscribed school work.
As you do this, you will exercise specific and helpful pathways in your brain that will benefit you on that glorious day that you are free to study only what is of most interest to you.
Until humanity has remembered and implemented educational opportunities that limit the outside coercion, do the best with what you have. In gratitude.
The pinnacle of life is to arrive at the place where you are able to utilize the senses… each sense… with heightened acuity and wisdom. This comes from experience and deep reflection. At life’s summit, you will have honed your ability to study WITH a warm and marveling heart. This puts you into wisdom’s abode where data from disparate subjects knit themselves together into new connections and insights that have never yet been discovered. What a thrill to be the one to bring that particular nugget into humanity’s awareness!
We so need what You were born to discover!
I, for one, look forward to you sharing what your studying is able to present.
In my pursuit of Real Truth, I have given up everything. Crawling through the “eye of the needle,” I have learned the *mysteries* and am now giving my life to assist YOU to dis-cover Who *YOU* really are, along with your unique gift to offer humanity. As you learn to seek (in the right place and with purified intent), you WILL find treasures of lasting value, along with every promised reward. Together, we will establish a society of humane beings and live life ALIVE, on PURPOSE, and with a sociality unequaled… because we will each BE and view each other as equally and profoundly DIVINE! Please… catch this Hope and Vision and join with me.
