Unlocking Peace: The Power of Lifelong Learning in Overcoming Global Strife

For millennia, humanity has struggled with an impossible challenge: achieving global peace. Despite the advent of various religions, spiritual teachings, and revered leaders like Abraham, Mohammed, and Jesus, peace has remained an intangible ideal. The chronicles of history suggest a fundamental flaw in human development, an inability to nurture the mental capacities necessary for a harmonious existence. Governance across the globe, irrespective of its form, has consistently failed to forge a peaceful world. This failure is not limited to the realm of political leadership but extends to educational systems, where even the most esteemed institutions have been unable to cultivate the mental functions vital for peace.

The heart of the matter lies in humanity’s limited use of its mental capabilities, relying largely on two to three functions, which has led to a society characterized by laziness, cowardice, deception, blindness, and fear. This severe state is on the whole product of being fed a “potpourri of lies” throughout history, leaving individuals unequipped to navigate the complexities of life with wisdom and resilience.

I propose a revolutionary solution to this millennia-old problem: the imperative of lifelong education. A comprehensive and continuous educational journey is crucial for every individual. This journey encompasses not just the acquisition of knowledge but a deep understanding and cultivation of mental, emotional, and spiritual faculties.

The curriculum for humanity should include a broad spectrum of disciplines. From psychology, which aids in understanding behaviour and emotions, to the architecture of the mind and nurturing practices, every subject serves to expand an individual’s capacity to understand themselves and the world around them. This education extends to mastering negotiation in life’s various arenas, managing inner life for resilience, and unleashing latent talents and capabilities.

Moreover, I would like to emphasize the importance of acknowledging and utilizing the full spectrum of human mental functions, far beyond the limited few normally used. Understanding dreams and the power of spirituality, navigating the delusions of daily marketing, and finding fulfilment beyond the soulless pursuits of business are all critical components of this holistic education.

Learning how to communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, and understand the psychology of money should be presented not just as academic subjects but as essential life skills. This approach to education also should advocate for a deep engagement with personal development, societal responsibilities, and the cultivation of care, trust, and love as foundational principles.

In essence, my vision for lifelong learning is a call to break free from the cycles of ignorance and contention that have tormented humanity for millennia. By accepting a comprehensive educational concept that fosters growth, understanding, and resilience, humanity can finally embark on the path to lasting peace and fulfilment. This transformative journey requires not just the commitment of individuals but the collective effort of societies worldwide to reimagine education as a lifelong quest for enlightenment and harmony.
