I am a Teacher,NOT a Preacher!!!



Teaching/Training is NOT  a preaching procedure.While modern preachers use cloudy ideas and features of speaking,true educators on the other hand should use the most specific and clear ways to both attract and open the mind,attention and will of their pupils/students.
As Confucius,Socrates and Russau proved we may learn by three methods :
~ First, by reflection, which is noblest
~ Second, by imitation, which is easiest/most common
~Third by experience, which is the bitterest,as it takes the most trying combined with patience and trust on our goals and on our teachers too.(Evolve me and I will learn=means experience)
This is one of the most important tasks we as teachers/trainers have:To help our pupils/students not to get poisoned by experience but grow and mature through it.
How?I think by envolving them with the right examples from our own learning experience and from own way of “moving” in the educanional environment(classrooms,articles,speeches,presentations).
Of course one learns firmer through their own mistakes but we teachers have the sacret duty to be there and  lend a handwith which we will manage to soothe the often hard experience of our attendees.A so-called spiritual medicine is the talking and dialoguing with our students using philosophical quotes that either were said by us or by famous and recognized personas of Education.And there are a large amount of them,indeed.
Moreover we spicy up the nature of our lesson by such usage and we also actively show that we too keep on teaching ourselves first of all.Plus when we step on such interaction in the classroom apart from evolving the biggest possible number of our students,apart from making innovative teaching(and not stale preaching) we bond ourselves with the rest of the spiritual people existing and with us our students tie themselves up on this wonderful chain of learning.This is what Positive Learning means,that leads to knowledge as a whole thing.
It is also true that philosophy is a safe and well known key to Intelligence as well.But this happens when it is used  in their every day teaching.
Education-and not only-Intelligence has (or should have...) direct correspondence with the ethics and emotional stability of a person..ie we can consider one as intelligent when they have found the largest percentage on ballancing Mind(knowledge), Heart education(emotions) and Consciousness(Humanistic based and motivated ethics/ideals).Otherwise no matter how bright a brain is ...if the deeds correspond only to knowledge for knowledge itself and nothing more..I humbly believe that we are neither teachers nor learners nor smart complete beings…but  Awakers.The point is to be educators as a whole and not  preachers spreading false “prophesies” for a better future for our trainees.Try it in your classes and trust me the result will be such a worthy payment” for all !
(*Awaker in the terms of the branche called “educational philosophy” means the Supreme Whole Teacher)

Beeing a Teacher,NOT a Preacher !!!
