U will only be truly fulfilled when u fulfill who u truly are at your core. No one can tell u this. U can only be revealed this from deep within. This revelation is not the rational result of a cognitive and deliberate exercise. It can only be revealed from deep within when the vessel is made clean for it to take form in. This is what the indigenous people referred to as vision quest. In these traditions extreme conditions and NDE’s alone lead to this revelation through dreams and trances to the hierophant of who they really are. This also goes for the missions of whole tribes of like minded who share in common vision and purpose. Based on shared purpose groups and schools are formed surrounding these special competencies. In the west the whole notion of schools have lost this original meaning. Schools are still telling students what they should be, not helping them discover who they truly are and what their true unique purpose is. Curricula coming from without are scripts to be faked creating a society of actors. We are actors (players) in this reality but may not see that it is fake and not true.
This is what Morpheus (the god of the dreams) says in the legendary woman in red scene:
“Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it. [Neo’s eyes suddenly wander towards a woman in a red dress]
Morpheus: Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?
Neo: I was…
Morpheus: [gestures with one hand] Look again. [the woman in the red dress is now Agent Smith, pointing a gun at Neo’s head; Neo ducks]
Morpheus: Freeze it. [Everybody and everything besides Neo and Morpheus freezes in time]
Neo: This… this isn’t the Matrix?
Morpheus: No. It is another training program designed to teach you one thing: if you are not one of us, you are one of them. [You tube video: Matrix is a System]
These roles he mentions are how schools have become the way to plug us into the matrix cause they come fully from without and not from a deep inner quest and revelation. The same way the external role plugs us into the Matrix the true Self and this new role we get plugs us into the divine matrix.
The true individual cannot be grasped in trends, averages or pre-programmed profiles. The true meaning of education is to aid persons in finding their unique Self (Atman). True education is the search for meaning. Only the quest for Atman (true Self) satisfies this definition. Unless people do what they do from deep within and because they really want to (not because they are told to or forced to) will we will have what we have now: a robotic dull average society fully devoid from true passion, creativity and authenticity.
