Change is the only constant. Every action and reaction is a sign of changing the form of Energy and we as humans have the ability to choose its forms. Human life which is in its modified soul form is different, from its original form because of the way we perceive things.
This perception is a result of a number of successive activities inbuilt in us.
- An instrument for 1st observation (say Eyes)
- An organ of vision is in the nerve centre of the Brain (Neural circuit)
- The mind which connects the two to the brain through focussed attention
- The Buddhi reacts
- The idea of Egoism flashes
- The action and reaction are presented to the purush, the soul. The intelligent soul is behind the mind.
It appears we have no choice. Incase the soul is pure and is at the right energy level, the interpretation is right and the decision taken is timely. The modified soul, with variable energy, reminds us of a common man who usually makes mistakes and is also punished for it by the affected. The Chitta always attempts to bring the purush to original form but the modifications or deviations or impressions of time also called vrittis does the damage.
The choice to set the energy levels to its right place is by consciously making active decisions at the right time. EDUCATION must have these included as part of living Life. Understanding self and its relationship with other human beings, nature and existence is a must and is possible. Can we call it as CBEA-Choice Based Energy & Action, achieved through spirituality and Yoga?
Human Queries and Quests have always effected their own progress and their own conditions depending on how they have utilized their wisdom, from the learnings, from the responses of the environment and those surrounding them. We classify these quests into three categories:
- Outer Quests
- Inner Quests
- Spiritual/ Existential Quests
Life is for living and it can’t and should not be partially lived. All three quests have to be met within one’s lifetime only. The very purpose and the reason for our free existence is nature’s way of progression. But Nature keeps many aspects hidden, for leaving all options open as our choices. Freedom is therefore hidden as a choice in our action. We have to decipher these hints of nature for excellence. Co-existence is existence is the underlying principle of NATURE.
We are made up of three different mutually exclusive parts mainly BODY, MIND, and SELF. The needs, characteristics, and qualities of these three are all very different and will have to be totally understood. Our sense organs make impressions from the outer world and generate responses as queries to be either interpreted rightly with understanding or without. The responses depend totally on the individual’s perception, wisdom, and personality. The results are obvious. Farsightedness and realization of impact space, it’s temporary/permanent nature and available resources make each one take decisions. These decisions have a pattern and the series of decisions taken bring in satisfaction or happiness and universal appreciation.
The quests which reflect in as requirements of three aspects of our being namely Body, Mind and Self become complex as we progress in age from childhood to adulthood to matured and old age. TRUE EDUCATION plays a big role. These complexities may even be termed as impurities. This comes in the form of varying energies in different individuals. We understand them as different versions of individuals. Since we are social beings, the relationship between individuals, at the family level, society level and at the level of existence should be looked differently. The aim of this article is to highlight this important aspect, missing NOW.
- The Body is not us. The bodily requirements are limited and discontinuous, and we must understand the limitedness in terms of availability of resources and using the universal co-existence principle and mutually agreeable at all levels.
- The mind is like the sky for an astronaut, the freedom given to us as a gift of nature. Training the mind to remain aligned with our purpose and goal is very much possible if we begin early. We must take up universal teaching on priority before it is too late. Only Education is the key.
- The self requirements are unlimited and continuous. We exist to grow our inner selves. Paths are known.
Only priorities have to be shifted and the Quest or the thrust can be quenched.
The acceptance of limited capacity or capability of Human beings has resulted in the so-called present-day problem of encroachment of RIGHTS and enforcement of DUTIES. Individuals have somehow remained miniaturized in terms of their potential utilization with only the basic minimum sensory and conscious efforts being put towards progress.
The technology advancements are aiding in ease of work but the time, money and energy saved are still not focussed deliberately on their higher performance. The net outcome and the result, therefore, remains almost the same at the level of self-maintenance rather than surplus production, regional and national economic contribution, performance enhancement, capacity building, knowledge or skill enhancement or exploring other avenues of higher-level awareness and interaction with experts or people in their own areas and that of others. We can also blame it on the system which does not have such forums or platforms but we are more to be blamed. Instead of having the feeling of satisfaction or prosperity we are still entangled by the ghost of deprivation. This present-day situation thus gives us plenty of time to waste and misuse.
The excess unfruitful time with reasonable security in life makes the brain move its attention towards the wrong or nonrewarding arena. We start drifting towards the encroachment of the rights of others in various forms and away from our expected duties. Even the Constitution talks of only fundamental duties and fundamental rights.
The concept of acceptance of universal duties for all including those deprived, animals, plants or whole of Biomass and cosmos as a whole in our sphere of thought and action, only can bring us out of ANIMAL LIKE nature. Rights would follow and be fulfilled as a fallout of the first part. Being Human and bringing these values to each life can be a mission-based work plan at individual level, society level, national level and at the level of existence. Lead has to be taken by Educationists. Action points can be identified and march has to begin.
Else the fight between encroachment and enforcement would continue.
That we have been working to create a lab that would test all children from the age of five to eighty-five for a sufficient number of attempts to generate a database of the individuals on these parameters: ISPVD: Interest, Skill, Personality, Value system, and differentiating acumen, We have begun to think on solving it using technology. Collaboration to see this happen is beginning with IITs.
Artificial intelligence, Machine Learning tools are being attempted to use these huge data sets for coming to a reasonable natural choice or conclusion for each individual. Excellence in the work field and its spread is a must for the Indian sub-continent to utilize the demographic dividend. The Govt. Agencies and private players should join to take up this task to guide young minds and help in planning human labour problem of the country. There are around 12000+ career options and we have reduced this to only 12 career roots or Career Trees, published in Oct 2019, in our first book ” Perspectives on Higher Education of India: developing an integrated Model” by Jha, Vardhan and Mahto (JVM) from Amity University Jharkhand.
Employment and work opportunities will impact the Economy only if all get the opportunities to contribute. Where will they contribute depends on the space given to them to improve their capabilities. District wise Skill Market Hub concept with the integration of Training/Education, Production House and Market with Industry tie-up can solve the problem of this country and retail the regional skills and still fulfil all its aspirations of life. This Skill Market Economy model is also being discussed in the Academic circles to gather support and be experimented as a pilot project in Jharkhand.
The mismatch between Skill sets of individuals and the career path taken by him/her remains the basic most important factor in productivity, efficiency and ultimate economy of any Industry or a state or nation. Any progressive country, therefore, must understand the links, requirements, and methodologies of reducing this gap. But the actual research is badly lacking on Skill per se.
The Research is on under the banner of JEET with LifeTime Career & Research Lab. We have identified that if individuals are tested in the laboratory (Career LAb) for a relatively long period in terms of a logical scientific way on INTEREST, SKILL, VALUE- SYSTEM, PERSONALITY and DIFFERENTIATING ACUMEN (GOD’sGIFT), we can identify which area would they excel and how they should choose that root out of 12 roots in a CAREER TREE designed for all possible career options on the globe. Can we join to make it happen on the ground.
Capability-building stands tall as Task for each individual especially early in life and later at every stage of life for want of progress and excellence and not many are able to reach its maximum level owing to our average or low aiming culture. The dissatisfaction because of under-development is the root cause of evils in the life of individual, family, society and existence (Nature). This realization sometimes comes at a time when a lot is lost and one finds himself in a corner from where many possibilities are beyond reach. Naturally, therefore suffering begins, definitely impacting everyone and every aspect of life including the next generation. This irreplaceable pathway being chosen once is trodden by the majority in our country unconsciously leading to all kinds of frustrations, depressions, family rifts, fights, confusions, legal battles, opportunist’s paradise, corruption, muscle struggle, murder, and whatnot. THIS IS THE TRAP WHERE WE ARE STRUCK TODAY WITH NO OR LIMITED HEADWAY. We need to ponder:
Why are we trapped?
What are the options not to get into this trap?
Who can take us out?
How is that possible? Is this possible?
When should that be attempted?
Right and rightly timed Education, Radical cultural and social revolution, understanding Human existence, Human Values, and mutual harmony by one and all through a universally accepted system may give us some ray of hope. Only those who are not in this self-generated or forced cyclonic trap-cone can see the trouble. Ignited and enlightened Individuals, groups and system-oriented moves only may find the right ways.
Values and their importance can not be over-emphasized. This is the only opportune window and the moment has to be seized now. Deep introspection at every level and planned intervention may bring results. JEET has come up with a standard way of making each one excel and contribute to universal development with a deep sense of satisfaction based on the value system. We need to experiment on our model and need the support of the Govt and the like-minded in making this a reality. All are welcome.
Every human being is destined to excel, but reality is different. What makes this peak performance of majority fall off the track. Growing eco-system essentially lacks, certain very very important ingredients, so very essential for excellence, specially in India. Some problems are put put below to fathom deeper for a solution.
- Good & Healthy Childhood- depends on family background & their priorities apart from the individual’s instincts which are inherent and hidden.
- Society where he grows and interacts with his peer group fellows and actually learns. The personality that comes out is a mixed product with no original self sense. Individuality & true self does not take root most often.
- Good and Balanced Education system- provided by parents & Govt system prevailing and the financial health of parents
- Encouragement to the Child for following unbiased, balanced & rational path and still be totally free to apply his originality & creativity. Child needs love and can contribute only when he feels loved and encouraged like that from a real guru.
- False propaganda, positioning of some irrelevant thoughts, biases of religion, sects, regions, languages, cultures dominate in early nurturing period.
- A system to observe the growth pattern of the child and shape their career along that path so badly required for excellence.
- What time does a child visualise the actual contours of future career ahead of him?
- What are those contours?
- Who observes them first?
- Who notes them?
- Who applies them in the real life in real sense?
GAP EXISTS. This is to be done scientifically else the capabilities and intellect will only be utilised for basic survival and not for excellence. We need Career & Skill Research Lab.
While discussing and understanding of aspects of Career I was extremely happy to see a relation like Teach for Teachers, Seek for Seekers and the like, and interpret Career for Care or Caring. It has a deep hidden meaning and this article brings a new interpretation and point of view of the hidden design of GOD. GOD has created us all as a creator and left the choice of career to us. The moment one tries to understand the meaning of life and its purpose, the imprint is visualised. We are here to care about our fellow beings, share with them the opportunities, resources, acquired knowledge, skills, even wealth and the like. We, therefore, have to choose a direction of Career where we are at out Best and that has to be the direction of passion, no expectation, enjoyment of giving, caring, sharing, being your real self. The differences designed by the creator has to be appreciated and linked with its usefulness using our wisdom rather than being rebuked or put down. The universal leadership demands togetherness and that also comes from our scriptures where the whole world is one family. Yoga has the same essence of Unity. But unless we as individuals do not keep ourselves at our best version, this unity is not possible.
Career Lab has this deep sense of enquiry to understand each individual for a longer time through tests and analyse the data for a longer period to come to a sufficient level of confidence to prescribe Career Passport with all details of the path to be followed. All will have to be tested for their passion and make THE BEST impact on their own lives along with all others directly or indirectly.
- Everyone on earth sees objects around him/her place of interaction or movement, observes people, interacts with so many different people with varying degree of appreciation, experiences situations in all walks of life, makes decisions and all these directly or indirectly influence our future.
- Every problem is unique but there are so many different possibilities of solving it.
- Life is full of opportunities and possibilities at all its stages. It would be nice if most possibilities or answers to life problems can be put before the life actors namely human beings, the path or journey can be smoothened and clearly understood.
- It is precisely with this aim that this article is being written that we as conscious beings should be inspired by myriad possibilities that nature has already put before us. All we require is the following:
- Creative Vision
- Organised thought
- Controlled attention
Linking the possibilities with the dots created through our laboratory tests one is expected to have a clear way forward as far as his /her Career is concerned. All above points are ways of turning inward, looking at ourselves closely, as to what will give us the best blissful moments and how consistently the same can be followed for longer period of existence.
This inspiration needs the comprehensive perception of our persona, skill sets, value system and our response to these, with deep understanding, will guide us devote our lives to our own chosen career path.
