http://www.dalailamacenter.org Sir Ken Robinson speaks during the Dalai Lama Center’s Educating the Heart Series. He discusses the importance of an education that educates not just the mind, but also the heart.
My comment: I couldn’t agree with him more! This talk was in 2011 and I don’t think much has changed in the meantime where the main stream education is concerned. I wonder how long more we have to wait before we have some enlightened beings running the education system worldwide!
Sir Ken Robinson has a great sense of humor so stick with it and listen to him to the end.
A little girl gave a musician a coin and look what she got in return! After my last post with the poor kids creating their own orchestra out of garbage, I thought its just as uplifting to watch grown ups musicians creating music with real instruments. I hope all those little deprived materially kids (but oh so wealthy in spirit) grow up to own beautiful instruments to make beautiful music to uplift the spirits of everyone around them. I am hoping that some millionaire with yachts and rolls royces saw that video and was overwhelmed with the spirit of generosity to give each one of those kids real musical instruments plus scholarships to study is some musical academy. Their entrepreneurial creative spirit needs to be rewarded grandly. Isn’t that a nice thought to put out to the universe?
Send out healing energies and LIGHT to flood through all those poor souls who are creating so much havoc in the world, so much misery to innocent souls.
One Amazing Project!
I JUST HAD TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU about the kids of Cateura and their recycled orchestra to make you smile in admiration and hopefully fill your hearts with pride and joy at the human race! A short film about transforming trash into music about love, courage and creativity! In spite of all the chaos and ugliness we’re bombarded with through all our media channels who persist in spreading darkness and fear, the wonder of life and the human race is just incredibly inspiring. People with LIGHT GOODNESS INTELLIGENCE AND GOODWILL do exist everywhere. The general media just does not follow their stories. Criminals get more recognition and world exposure! I SAY – Shame on the Media! Share this with your friends, spread the word, there are many good things happening around the world.
YES YES YES THEY DO!!!!
Listen to Sir Ken Robinson about education. I know this is an old video but it is still very valid and it always hit home with me! He has such a lovely sense of humor too! I relate to this because I am also what one would label as ADHD now although like he says this condition was not known when I was born. The Roman Catholic nuns managed to cut me down to size, it was painful! Still suffer from that actually. They shattered my self-confidence and love for life! I’ve recovered some but not all together. It still comes up now and again! So it feels good for me to hear someone who thinks like I do.
