It is only for those without self belief, those who believe that some can and others simply can’t, that we have created the modern education system, a system in which the Buddhist must endure, where our knowledge is seen “inferior” simply because we refuse to compete for a state of enlightenment, and would give what we know to another in a heartbeat, we don’t own the knowledge, we simply have familiarized ourselves to that aspect of life. In western culture selling your body is prostitution, selling you mind, that’s education!?! Knowledge should come to those who seek and earn it, not those who pay, just like gift of life we did nothing to earn life, why should knowledge be different.
The idea that educated is a state that some have attained and others have not is ridiculous, we don’t know 1% of 1% of anything, what we are able to learn is outlook, the ability to to adapt and change what we know to what we experience is the only real knowledge in life, and it is dynamic.
But is the education what teaches them to do so or is it the problem solving process combined with constructive thinking, education as is today, just provides reference material, it in no way provides the means to expansive thinking nor does it allow such. It is purely based on the more u learn – the more you earn – the less u really know.
But only who really seek for knowledge will have access to a more high quality knowledge. Because what they give in schools is just for career stuff. You will only use them for professional purposes. You’ll never create something new if you respect the school’s norms forever. We really need to break rules from time to time.
