In my experience, some of us start off in life with little awareness of their 'soul' s deepest desire. As a youngster one is subject to such pressures and influences from the world that one finds oneself lost, ignorant that what is truly at stake is one's own as well as the community's destiny. As one matures one's soul may find proper guidance but the beginnings, as always, are crucial. Life is short. As long as the focus, in education, is mainly to adapt the individual to society a person's potential to contribute creatively to the community while being happy to do so is greatly diminished.
