has issued a grid of concepts central to The New World.
They are as follows;
1. Resilience instead of strength, which means you want to yield and allow failure and you bounce back instead of trying to resist failure.
2. You pull instead of push. That means you pull the resources from the network as you need them, as opposed to centrally stocking them and controlling them.
3. You want to take risk instead of focusing on safety.
4. You want to focus on the system instead of objects.
5. You want to have good compasses not maps.
6. You want to work on practice instead of theory. Because sometimes you don’t know why it works, but what is important is that it is working, not that you have some theory around it.
7. It’s disobedience instead of compliance. You don’t get a Nobel Prize for doing what you are told. Too much of school is about obedience, we should really be celebrating disobedience.
8. It’s the crowd instead of experts.
9. It’s a focus on learning instead of education.

Hello Ching, may this letter find you and those you love healthy and content. I remind myself from time to time that there is always a lot more going on with whomever I come into contact with. Even so, I must make the best judgement I am capable of when evaluating the situation my students are operating within. In the past I requested that Kidcastle ensure their equipment is functioning and setup properly before class. From my twenty years of teaching children, including my own I have learned that children require consistent environments. Teaching children is challenging at best and improbable in the worst conditions. From my experience I have been trained to understand that almost all children are born with a STRONG motivation to learn from everything around them. My work begins with introductions of myself, classroom behaviour and lastly the course materials available. I am just a guide for the forces of curiosity and fascination these children embody. They usually begin their lives as clear, bright, fast-moving rivers we must respect and encourage to flow. I feel that the Kidcastle classes are deteriorating, getting worse with each class and the accomplishments of the individual students follow this trend. This includes my ability to encourage, interact and observe them. I can describe these observations as looking through a window that becomes smaller and smaller as well as darker and darker before my eyes. It is what I imagine going blind must be like. So, this letter is really a plea for help on behalf of the students. They need; the class equipment to be functioning for ALL 6 students. the equipment to be setup and TESTED before the class begins. Can you imagine being thrilled to have classes with a teacher who smiles patiently at you, but being unable to speak, or hear what he is clearly trying to share? The materials by themselves are dead things which do not speak or move or smile on their own. A teacher is meant to bring life and energy to a place that welcomes other sentient beings to engage and grow. I look forward to hearing how I may be of assistance to you, and our students, lee

a tapestry cannot be made using only one colour.
buddhism brought ways and means to many people on other paths.
i lived in RI, usa at a dojo that taught Kosho Ryu.
our grandmaster’s ancestor had to reconcile his family’s martial arts with the conversion of their temple to buddhism.
his revelation that true self defence is No Body Contact informed his entire discipline.
we are still taught today that Escape, not control, not destruction, is the highest form of our art.
it is when anyone says, my Way is the only one, everyone else is wrong that my feathers are ruffled..

it’s wonderful that sciVive offers the best information available to mr.heart.
but every one of us will have to make the journey within, or not.
what is the book about? DUNE
what is it that makes us human? that takes us beyond mammalian. tony wright’s research suggests we developed in parallel with the advanced reproductive system of the tropical plant kingdom, our brains at their best require complex neurochemical inputs from.. FRUIT[female sex organ]
