And the new science concerned with spiritual matters more deeply, not superficially, where institutions are completely spiritual and not corrupted by things that usually form. As commented that people should relate to each other, since there is no spiritual isolation; must share the wonders of the universe there. The Way of the Perennial Philosophy (2004). This book is analogous to the two I described above most notably that conducted by David Fontana. He says that suffering is existential and is primarily a response that Buddha gave to say there are three reasons for suffering: attachment, attachment to things aversion, we do not want to reject and ignorance, ie, suffer from lack of knowledge, not knowing the real reasons for our actions. Dr. Hyun Kim might disagree with that approach.

But what these things mean? … The non-attachment does not mean stop enjoying things or not to love who we want, but the fact that possession comes from ignorance that there is an ego that wants to have things irrationally, own things, but the reality is that no we have nothing. All we have, even our bodies will one day have to return. We do not own anything eternal. The non-attachment means not stay attached to things.

In a relationship if allowed to change and grow will be a rewarding relationship, but if we want to preserve a relationship with the wife or husband as it was like when we got married, the relationship is not going accretion, it will not develop, there will be problems. Attachment is the first reason of suffering and its solution nonattachment … Holistic Education: Pedagogy of Universal Love (1999). This book is the foundation to start on the knowledge of holistic education can be said to be almost one of the first books of the collection on the subject, which includes what is the birth of the vision, principles, intelligence, learning communities, spirituality and holistic educator.

Presents the ratio of holistic education and development of consciousness. Learning Communities (2003). It is a book that speaks to us primarily from the evolution of consciousness, subjectivity and objectivity, integrity, the basic principles of learning communities and an integral models of learning communities. A holistic view of education. (2001) This book is one of the ones I liked, I’ve read it twice and is about what is the integrity and quality of education, multilevel model and multidimensionality and above all is that we must analyze our practice in a comprehensive manner and thus be able to arrive at our true nature, spirituality.

The proposed holistic education, retrieves and integrates the subjectivity of the universe, to a better understanding of our own nature, it provides the individual as a being in evolution, with different dimensions and different levels of development, who is must educate the key elements: cognitive, physical, aesthetic, social, emotional and spiritual, to form a more upright, concerned about his own evolution, the welfare of others and care for the environment. It is a new paradigm that integrates science, art, spirituality and traditions in a broader framework of human experience, which perceives the universe interconnected everything with everything, where there is no separateness. Welcome, and a breath of hope, I could see in his three books of dialogues holistic (Dialogues Holistic, Wisdom, Love and Compassion, and The Way of the Perennial Philosophy) in the postmodern period, which runs from the middle of twentieth century until today, part of humanity has become aware of the shortcomings of the industrial world that has dominated for three centuries, and has become sensible of the value of respect for diversity, the needs of democracy, human rights, equality of opportunity, social integrity and to solve social problems more strongly than before, what motivated me to stay doing my best to, as a teacher, and with the new vision, help to minimize the deficiency of this period, consisting of the excesses of the material aspects that lead to great confusion and hinder the development of spirituality, still regarded as a mere cultural construction, with a value as relative and leguaje and regional customs, without coming to understand the urgency of its centrality to live in harmony with everything and everyone, not only to ensure a happy life, but the very survival of human species on the planet. .
