God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.”
Reinhold Niebuhr, philosophical / theologian
The older I get the clearer it becomes why living and enjoying a genuine quality of life requires daily surrender. Growing is all about making a plan but being willing to live Plan Be, keeping space and time for the inevitable surprises that life loves to bring our way. Living in such a way allows me to dive ever deeper into change’s embrace, breathing through the progress that comes with understanding and acceptance.
Many have asked why the first applied social science programme based on the Mereon Matrix was education, and the reason is simple; too many teachers and students are lost in the mental rigours of school, which have tragically become little more than a place both are required to be –one for a pay cheque, the other by law. Too often the emphasis on both is a trial by fire, testing only ‘mental’ and mettle. Small wonder education has become a battleground where the winner is too often big business.
BeLonging –ReVisioning Our LifeCourse, a teacher development programme, and TeamPlayGround– was intentionally designed based on the forms that underscore the logic and generate the flow in a dynamic, unified system . The transformation of education is a global necessity, and demands a universal systemic approach. BeLonging meets and exceeds that demand as it requires local / cultural translation!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit BeLonging. Your financial investment goes towards making a world of positive difference for parents and teachers, and the Children who are our Future.
