part of the evolutionary process of the planet Earth, there
have been many alterations in the consciousness of the human
family. Recorded history shows us an amazing rapidity of change
within the past few generations in comparison to earlier periods.
Human intercommunication is one of the possible causes of
this increase in the speed of change.
us conjecture about the mystery of humanity, its miraculous
existence in the Universe, and some of the possibilities ahead.
we are One World is gradually becoming ingrained into the
mass consciousness. That we are not our own is
fast becoming shown to us. We have learned, and are in the
process of adapting to the fact, that we cannot, even in ignorance,
abuse a part of ourselves without certain indubitable effects.
We are not separate from any part of nature: mineral, vegetable,
animal, human, or spiritual.
interconnections and interdependencies have necessitated an
approach to the treatment and nurturing of our young which
has no precedent except among those primitive and native tribes
to whom many are now turning for a recollection of our human
heritage of direct communion with the spirit of nature.
In this present period, however, we are upon another turn
of the evolutionary spiral, and there is not an actual turning
back in time.
are moving forward. We are heading into a consciousness and
way of life as foreign to our present thinking as the way
of life of the most primitive human beings known was from
that of today. For today, the repetition of a reverence for
nature, and a restoration of communion with her, will be accompanied
by a mental appreciation of our interlocked existence and
potential, as an irrevocable part of an Entity which is a
Planet, that is part of a Solar System, that is a part of
a constellation of stars, that is part of a Galaxy, that is
a part of Space, which reaches into Infinity.
shall we bring new ones into a world, which is in the process
of such fantastic realizations, where the most certainly appropriate
preparation is a preparation for change?
they must be appreciated in a realization that they have their
own agendanot separate from ours, but different.
We must allow them safety to be who they are. They already
know they are not their own they know the intercommuriion
with nature and, if we do not tamper with this intercommunion,
they will be able to teach us, as well as their progeny.
these realizations are part of our collective consciousness,
we, of the present generations, also possess awareness of
our deeper purposes and potential as a species.
is intended that The World Core Curriculum play a part among
the inevitable variations in education which must occur as
humanity adjusts to the broader scope of our newly found faculty
for conscious communication and spiritual relationship. This
curriculum will also play a part in humanity's newly discovered
ability to cooperate with all parts of manifested existence
within the confines of our planet and beyond.
consider these efforts as the result of sixteen years' experience,
made available to those who, like ourselves, are finding it
necessary to follow the inclinations of their hearts, as well
as the dictates of their minds, to create educational approaches
commensurate with the demands of planetary evolution.
will be continual updating and available additions to this
work which will be found, at best, to be a precursor to entirely
new ways of relating to our young, and, at least, an approach
which supersedes previous birth-through-secondary school curricula
in its scope and underlying integrity.
