“The Element”


What a privilege it is to find “The Element” by Ken Robinson, a celebrated educational visionary and creative thinker. With his many ideas, he is advocating for a transformation in our approach to educating people.  His theories confirm valuable awareness of human emotional anatomy.  We want educators to be teaching successful navigation of emotional anatomy.  Our goal, to help each other discover the unique meeting point of heart mind body soul spirit which by design, ignites desire for participation and contribution toward liberating our personal best.  Freedom to choose is naturally inspiring.

He too is using James Allen’s garden mind imagery to cultivate, nurture and encourage radical change in our approach for shaping conducive environments that liberate, enhance and entice the natural growth and development of our species.  We are all human but each unique. Each of us develop genetically, environmentally, experientially and traumatically unique.  Educators and students need the language of emotional anatomy to familiarize themselves with how interference and liberation compliment grateful awareness.  This is a new vocabulary, our open source language for how the mind works.

As Ken Robinson explains, successful education occurs when people find their “Element, ‘the meeting point between natural aptitude and personal Passion.’ within environments that cultivate to liberate ‘attitude and opportunity’.  As we students become engaged, challenged and inspired into life long learning, we live out of our ‘Element.”  Yes, we must motivate our educational institutions to respond effectively to this reality.  And the method of rapidly implementing this insight world wide is for us to tap into the emotional anatomy of visionary inspiration by using the emotional lens of awe and wonder, thus exciting the lens of legacy we recapture our naturally inspired personal significance.

Intelligently designed into our human emotional anatomy, there are organs of emotion that mobilize energy on behalf of that which is our most rewarding experience, personal significance.   Each and every one of us through our hidden desires, talents and passions is significant to these unfolding future generations.  And when we realize our personal influence, no matter what station in life we occupy, excited participation in our legacy of freedom to choose our very best will result.

Not all are able however.  Emotional Anatomy is very delicate neuroendocrine tissue and its development into effective and capable, passionately inspired form is easily scarred, leaving tragedies of disability in its wake.  It is for this reason that Robinson’s ideas are essential to the future of freedom.  To counter those lost in ‘I don’t care angry defiant numbness’, aware educational environments must impact wounded ignorant dysfunction.  Those that count themselves part of the free world are dependent upon understanding this tug of war.  We must mobilize our visionary systems on behalf of legacy as soon as possible.

Tricked and trapped into blindness, unaware of how emotional anatomy works, even the most powerful, sophisticated, well meaning and educated have chosen their own version of shock and awe rather than contributing through the lens of awe and wonder.  The tragedy of misguided global war will force devastating delays in our development, enslaving generations to come.  Our ability to communicate, contribute, motivate, inspire and compete upon the world stage is dependent upon the rapid deployment of this education, teaching freedom to choose.

Compartmentalized self protection is unaware and has not yet understood the impact of emotional anatomy and its consequence of personal slavery, forced by emotional reflexes, designed for survival from our too many unfortunate traumas.  We are each essential, significant and personally responsible to do our share toward making the world a better place because we are here.    Compassionate collaboration?  Each and every one of us makes a personal difference in this effort to mobilize our species.  Tug of War, the battle between freedom and slavery is happening within the very personal hidden parts of our emotional anatomy and is the real world war III.

Intelligently designed emotional anatomy, through recognized personal significance, ignites glimpses of inspiration and does excite many alive.  Gratitude awakens the story of freedom to choose personal participation by contributing our own talented passions for which we are uniquely suited.  Our species cannot be forced, freedom cannot be forced.   Each and every individual must choose for themselves to say “yes, I will,” and make the world a better place because we are here.

Realistically there is intelligent and not so intelligent opposition to understanding effective, well functioning emotional anatomy.  Still reading?  Be grateful you are aware of the cacophony of voices in thoughts, images, ideas, urges, impulses, moods, attitudes, feelings and intellect that seem to distract, even refuse on purpose.  Gratitude is emotion that orients our navigation within this highly complicated, potentially disorienting inner space.  Gratitude allows glimpsing the full rainbow of visions available to us all.  This simple truth is simple genius. Consistent with Ken Robinson’s ideas, carefully orchestrated educational environments enhance the development of human emotional anatomy which liberates our “Element”.  Gratitude reboots the machine.

We are highly dependent upon intelligently designed guidance to become aware of this internal tug of war.  Through single breath relaxation, all of emotion is displayed in stark contrast to the guidance by gratitude into the emotional anatomy of delightful rest which naturally liberates inspired visions. Gratitude is the only logical response.

Derived from our wounded youth, inflicted by DNA, received as forms of electromagnetic flux in the universe, within our own human experience, it is here we discover this unrelenting cacophony of nay saying, hey saying, self-critical, inviting voices, triggering the whole variety of frustrations, anxieties, lost confidence, distractions, illusions, fears and also the whole variety of grandiose possibility dreams we can see through the anatomical lens of awe and wonder.  In the tug of war between all these stories, through gratitude, we are able to freely choose via awe and wonder the lens of legacy and stand to be counted as personally significant in the battle for freedom to choose.

Many will be able to overcome grossly dysfunctional habits triggered through damaged emotional reflexes by discovering the gift of gratitude for inspired visions they then spread round the world, but first to family and friends.  When emotional anatomy is stimulated by visions of personal significance, there is natural enthusiasm for the cause.  Gratitude reboots the machine.

    Since this article is a little longer and therefore more complicated, I will need to respond to it in parts. Firstly, I agree that we need to cultivate environments in our educational systems that inspire “awe and wonder” to learn by being free to choose the “vision” that becomes a legacy for our children. But so too does China to the extent, “personal significance” only interfere’s with their process.

    I think Americans spend too much time and money on their “personal significance”, even to the point of being disabled. I have never seen a time in my life where more persons in the prime of their life would rather be disabled than work. And why would they when they chose to procrastinate education in favor of immediate gratification with the back up of parents who come from a time of knowing work was survival. I don’t see this generation learning from legacy . I don’t see the independence or commitment required to pass anything along. There seems to be a drastic difference between generations and I want to think that generations go thru a metamorphosis, set up by a much bigger design than our personal significance.
