Ahhhh back to school, perhaps the most nostalgic of times each year for me. When autumn persuades summer to conclude,  signaling a clarion call for the back to school shopping to commence. Most mothers seemingly happy to get their children off to school and out of the house, however I was not. My lamenting was concealed well by my enthusiasm for the start of a new school year, as I did recognize this time as forward movement. The customary first day back to school photos always proved that I could fake the excitement better than my boys could.

Fallacious feelings would arise and as each year the unwieldiness of doubt would continue to grow reflected by the height of my children; finding myself questioning why do I need to send them out there to learn about the world. Why couldn’t I teach them? What kind of world is it that I could not trust my own loving guidance, instead as if there is no choice we are mandated by the ruling structure of our society. We are taught that we have to learn.

As the many things that I question, I consider that we do not need to be taught inasmuch as we are here to remember. Sure in a modern society playing the part of a worker in the system does require a good education. Our credentials and money spent on an education earn for us a way to the top. Top of what? A winner of the game of life? Who really wins, the person who amass great financial wealth who is able to wear a designer suit at their funeral. Or is the real winner the person who remembers the game, why they are here and how they are a part of the whole, great wealth can show up in many ways.

I spent so much of my life learning….. learn how to speak, walk, learn the alphabet, math, science, history, how to be a Naturopath Doctor.  Now I am un-learning, peeling away the structures that were once placed on me through the teachings of our modern cultural society.

Recognizing for myself that learning does not determine my knowing. By virtue of someone able to memorize what they read does not entitle to be all-knowing. Wisdom is  attained through the action of discernible knowledge. The layers that are created are very deep, ego loves for us to feel that we are better by all that we learn, because we are so well read. There is nothing that is needed but to remember who we are. Maybe B-T-S could stand for back to self…… back to our multi-dimensional self.

Love and remembering,
