Where will LIFE take us? Future of homeschooling.
By Justin C Kurtz
This is such a great question. Forget that we are a business, a compensated community of people educating themselves on their own pace, improving themselves as we change the world. Where are we going in life? Goal setting and dream building are a large piece of what is necessary to achieve success in anything we pursue. Nowhere is this more prevalent than the LIFE business. So what are you building your future on?
Do you live on a vision? Do you live on purpose? Do you educate your child with vision and purpose? Have you ever asked your child what his/her purpose is?
What’s so funny is that my son’s purpose (he’s almost 3 in 2 days) and mine are aligned. I do wonder if his answer is only based on my influence at this young age but it gives me a lot of ammo and direction when preparing his educational needs as a homeschool parent.
Many homeschool parents struggle with purchasing curriculum pre-established that follows very closely traditional education done by public schools, which in my humble opinion is a direct contradiction to the reason we homeschool.
I asked my little man, What is your purpose just now. His response; “Space Ranger.” I personally would like to build a space-ship to launch myself into a black hole, and I created that dream and vision on a bit of a lark because I knew I needed a big dream to help me overcome some serious personal obstacles, and lead my son with a dream. So I have some ease when sharing information and training him up to be a space ranger because our purposes are a bit aligned. While it may seem like fantasy and science fiction to be someone who explores space and new worlds by the time little man is 20 it may not be fiction anymore.
Wikipedia describes ranger as “Ranger in the original meaning of the word designates a person who is specially trained to traverse rough terrain, esp. woodland, relatively quickly; and who possesses the according survival skills to live in the wilderness for a prolonged amount of time. “Ranging” also refers to patrolling and protecting an outskirt area (“range”). Today, the word is primarily used for specific roles in the military, in forestry, law enforcement, and in role-playing games, although a connection to the original meaning usually still exists in the modern ranger occupations.
Combined with this article titled “Tens of billions of habitable worlds in our Milky Way, say astronomers. (see full article here http://bit.ly/Hh8whb ) using his current motivation as a primer for his learning adventure doesn’t seem to far off.
So I ask you where will LIFE take us? To other planets? To a new reality based on compensated communities? To a need for space rangers and the survival skills necessary to be one, and the crafts designed to transport them? I hope so, I’m betting so, in fact my vision and purpose says it is so and if I have learned anything from being a part of TEAM and the LIFE business what we see and experience in our subconcious mind will become reality. So hang on to your keyboard space rangers because the future is gonna be as different as anybody could see possible. So final question and then off to your test; What are you doing in your homeschool planning to prepare your children for LIFE in the future?
