And every child has within an irrepressible urge. The renewed emergence of a single destiny: to manifest who he is, who she is.
Being a person even within the womb, it will take a whole life to complete the manifold manifestations of his innate humanness.
From the cradle to the grave the enrichment of experiences react, resound and reflect into a self-eductional process destined to know the single jewel of the self beyond the thousands of facets of appearance. A diamond, a diamond is.
In spite of culture, in spite of formal education, in spite of society, the self-education process goes on and on. The search cannot be stopped.
What new-born babies have in common is the diamond has not been repeatedly shaped by the reflection, reaction and resound of experiences. It is a raw diamond.
Every child holds some unique characteristics conditioned by genes such as persistence level and the capacity to take risks (MD. Rutter, M.) but how these uniqueness will manifest depends entirely on environment and experience.
What if this environment offers the right conditions for infants to self-educate themselves from the very beginning? I am talking about an environment as assertive and responsive of children’s developmental needs as we can dream of. Hundreds of alternative educational projects are preparing the ground to sow such an experience in children’s lives all over the globe.
My hint is that we might be at the edge of a new humanity.
A humanity that values and includes the spiritual aspect of human beings to be freely manifested in the educational field.
