Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) August 31, 2003 - According to the Israel-
based Kabbalist Michael Laitman, education is the most powerful weapon mankind has. Mayor Bloomberg and Schools Chancellor Klein are smart to invest so much energy in attempting to improve education in New York, but it is questionable whether organizational changes are really addressing the core issue.
Laitman suggests supplementing current curriculums with a completely secular Meaning of Life course based on the wisdom of Kabbalah. He guarantees that after just one year, results will show children of any age being noticeably different from their peers after completing such a course. They will have a correct attitude to life in general, which will provide them with better focus for succeeding in other subjects.
Laitman explains that the problems facing education today all stem from the same source - a complete lack of understanding about the true nature of man. Without a basic understanding of how to fix what is wrong with our nature, our youth will continue to be pulled toward the negative aspects of society and we have only ourselves to blame.
With education defining the nature of the next generation and the world we live in, it is surprising that world organizations have not yet come up with a unified solution for improving this vital area. This could easily be solved by bringing all the top minds together to define what values need to be instilled in younger generations to create a world we will all want to live in.
"Education is currently the biggest issue facing mankind because 20 years from now these youngsters will be all grown up and then we will understand exactly what we put into them," explains Laitman. "The core issue is finding a system for fixing our escalating egoism, which is becoming more evident with each passing generation. Such a system would explain why a person is born into the world with such obvious faults, since nature does not create anything without a very specific purpose in mind. Everything about nature is perfectly harmonious except for man's ego, which is the only real problem in the universe. Our lack of understanding about how to fix this situation can eventually bring about the destruction of the world. We have much to gain from embarking on a path that leads us to attaining the ultimate fulfillment."
A person who is exposed to the wisdom of Kabbalah very quickly understands the structure of the universe and nature, beyond the world we grasp with our five senses. It provides people of all ages with the basis for solving any question in life, while directing them toward the most efficient path for fulfilling their true desires in the most beneficial manner.
From his experience, children are more receptive to this material. They approach it freely and openly without all the hang-ups that adults typically bring with them. Laitman explains that youngsters automatically apply the material to their everyday behavior, without being hampered by religious restrictions that are generally associated with instilling these values.
Laitman, a scientist by profession who has dedicated his life to teaching people of all faiths about the forces governing our world, expresses his conviction about the accuracy of these methods: "Eventually all of mankind will reach the conclusion that this is the only way to progress, the only way to bring about desired results in all aspects of our lives."
