That's why heart-knowledge is so important to education. It's well known that we are guided by our hearts, far more than by our intellects. Logic alone can lead to false conclusions, and to be guided only by intellect is to become a stilted person. If our minds believe things that do not appeal to our hearts, sooner or later we will reject them.
We must regain from our ancestors the understanding that we are all immortal spirits on probation in this world. Our consciousness and love are eternal and will last forever, and each of us has a unique path to follow in life. We must realize that we have a Creator who loves us, however individually we come to understand what this means.
When we see ourselves beholden to a Great Mystery, transcendent yet immanent, we will not feel fear but have love and compassion for one another. When we see the world as the creation and property of the Great Spirit, we will readily end its pollution and its despoliation. When we look beyond the bubbles and illusions of the society we are now creating, our fears will dissolve and radical changes will come about. But we must first understand that without a Transcendent Being, there can be no humanity.
