Attitudinal Training and Education for SustainabilityAuthor(s): Bagla A
A human being is a Natural Capital and not a resource. Any resource whether natural or otherwise is generally material or physical-a lifeless thing, whereas Human Being is a living, dynamic energy being/entity rather than a physical or material entity. Therefore, a Human Being (he or she) needs to be treated like that and not as material machinery (dead/lifeless-resource) to produce goods or cash-profits. All education is finding one’s own real center, true nature i.e., to be able to live happy, active, purposeful life, actualizing one’s own gifted talents. This requires, identifying one's inherent potentialities. And this, in turn, requires, uncovering, developing them, if they are hidden or latent from consciousness, which is the purpose of education. Life is nothing, but a series of possibilities. This is the basic issue of dealing with Life. To live Life most effectively against all odds is the basic issue. Therefore, we have to live in harmony, peace, and effectiveness. This means producing results, bringing harmony in disharmony by relating better with both inner and outer possibilities and integrating them wherever required. This is the crux of whole education; as unfoldment, expansion, upliftment and reaching a cent-percent self-actualization, wholesomeness, growth, development in harmony as well as progress, prosperity in material/worldly terms by enriching our and other's lives by removing and being free of lack, poverty, fear and dependence of any and every type .
