EVERY child is a spark of God the higher mind. This knowledge put forward by Theosophy on early childhood education is in line with very ancient philosophies.
The new frontier ideas on child development emphasize joy, serenity of mind, harmony with nature.
Both reason and intuition are acknowledged as innate powers educable in everyone from birth.
Creative talent is one of the spiritual powers in human beings, part of the spectrum of consciousness which recognizes the faculties of understanding, of discrimination, and of direct knowing.
Highlighting this, Mme. Blavatsky wrote in her Key to Theosophy (pp. 270-71) that children “should above all be taught self-reliance, love for all men, altruism, mutual charity, and more than anything else, to think and reason for themselves.” Does this describe our public schools today? Hardly.
Intellectual testing is the norm, at least in New York City and other major school systems. Hugs, smiles and play are out, and unbelievably, a kid can even “fail” Kindergarten in this system! All the while filled up with junk foods laced with GMO’s, pesticides and antibiotics! Ouch.
“We would reduce the purely mechanical work of the memory to an absolute minimum,” Blavatsky continued, “and devote the time to the development and training of the inner senses, faculties and latent capacities.” (Unlike today’s educational monopolies)
“We would endeavour to deal with each child as a unit,” she said, “and to educate it so as to produce the most harmonious and equal unfoldment of its powers so that its special aptitudes should find their full natural development.” (Assuming they are not already vaccine damaged).
“We should aim at creating free men and women, free intellectually, free morally, unprejudiced in all respects, and above all things, unselfish.”
But what future is there for a child today who is irrevocably damaged because they received toxic chemicals and pollutants — pesticides in food, water, and aluminum containing vaccines to name a few? The following story is a mere introduction to the ongoing tragic abuse faced unknowingly by parents and children in today’s profit driven, material, chemical dominated world.
The Greater Good
“It had been long believed that autism was mostly genetically induced, but in July of 2011, Stanford released a very comprehensive study showing that non-genetic factors played the greatest role in determining autism risk, ” according to the Autism Community website.
This ground breaking study showed, that approximately 38% were due to genetic factors and 62% were environmental. (http://med.stanford.edu/ism/2011/july/autism.html)
“In March of this year, the University of Chicago released a study that showed again that the environment was the main factor in developing autism. (http://www.uchospitals.edu/news/2014/20140313-autism.html)
“Why is NIH spending money on genetic autism research at a 6:1 ratio over environmental causation research when … autism is mostly environmentally induced? This spending pattern flies in the face of all logic in light of the epidemic rise of autism.
“There are no genetic epidemics.”
From The Greater Good website: “The Greater Good has some exciting news – we are launching a series of videos on the vaccine debate that are sure to open hearts and provoke thought.
“The first is about autism and we think you will find it very compelling. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks and months! “Click on the video below to watch, then continue reading.”
Misleading Govt. Info
“So let’s talk a little about what the government is saying and doing about autism. In March of 2014 CDC reported new “official” autism rates stating that 1 in 68 US kids has autism, with 1 in 42 boys.
But a CDC telephone survey of 100,000 US parents just last year found that 1 in 50 US kids and 1 in 32 boys suffers from autism.
Why the difference? The telephone survey was conducted in 2013 looking at 6-17 year olds in 2011-2012 whereas the “official” data are from 2010 but ONLY looking at 8 year-olds born in 2002.
“It would seem CDC is using old data to conceal the fact that autism is an epidemic of gross proportions. One could even argue they have made the epidemic worse and tried to cover their tracks by changing the vaccine schedule.
“In the early 2000′s, CDC instructed vaccine makers to remove the mercury preservative in childhood shots. But as the mercury was being phased out of most childhood vaccinations, CDC recommended that pregnant women and infants at 6 months and again 7 months receive the flu shot – which they knew still contained mercury.
“In addition to the flu shot, CDC began recommending that pregnant women also receive the Tdap vaccine (diphtheria, tetanus, and attenuated pertussis). So pregnant women and their unborn babies are still being subjected to mercury-laden flu vaccines and aluminum-laden DTaP vaccines – and at an earlier point.
“These vaccines during pregnancy contradict decades of advice to take no medications, quit smoking, stop drinking alcohol and avoid mercury laden seafood while pregnant.
“But people have been so conditioned to trust authority that they accept this, making it all too easy to tell parents, ‘sorry, your kid was born that way’.”
“While the monkey business with the official autism statistics continues, government health officials maintain the charade that they are trying to find a cause for autism when they have blown $1.6 billion over the past decade looking for a supposed genetic cause despite ample science showing that environmental factors are the culprit. See here and here.
Yes, autism rates have skyrocketed while the government flushes precious research dollars down the drain. In fact, a recent report found that potentially 84% of current US funded research into autism duplicates research already done or in process.
“To make matters worse, we have learned that some senior folks responsible for addressing the autism epidemic in the US have suspected for years, in private, that vaccines are responsible for the epidemic, but they for some reason will not admit the truth publicly.
“It is heart breaking to see so many children suffering from autism, but we want to be very clear that vaccine damage reaches far beyond the autism epidemic.
“Children today suffer from epidemics of chronic illnesses never seen before. Recent research found that 54% of US school children suffer from a chronic condition of some sort – from diabetes, to asthma, allergies, obesity, learning and speech delays, behavioral problems to, bowel disease, chronic fatigue, immune system dysfunction, and autoimmune diseases. And sadly, ample science links these conditions to vaccines.
“The bottom line? It is up to you to educate yourself and make an informed choice about vaccination.
You can’t sue the government, the doctor, or the vaccine maker, you and only you will be responsible if something goes wrong.
“We’d like to thank the Children’s Medical Safety Research Center, CMSRI for making this video possible.”
Katy Perry and Jodi DiPiazza sing “Firework” at the Beacon Theater in New York on Oct 13, 2012. “Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs” is hosted by Jon Stewart and raises money with NYCA (New York Collaborates for Autism) to support and create autism programs, schools, and services all over the country.

How Vaccine Policy & Law Threatens Parental Rights in America
Award winning documentary offers a fresh look at what’s behind the sharply polarized vaccine debate in the U.S., and offers the opportunity for a new, more rational discussion about how to create safer and more effective public health policies to help our children stay healthy.
Changes Needed for US Vaccine Policy to Protect Human and Civil Rights
In America today, some citizens are being discriminated against and persecuted for following their conscience and making vaccine choices that do not conform with federal health policy. Under the US Constitution, Americans are guaranteed the civil right to exercise freedom of thought, speech, and belief.10, 11, 12 The right to dissent and petition the government for redress of grievances and hold beliefs that may differ from ones held by the majority is protected because our nation’s founders understood that minorities must be protected from oppression by the majority.13
“Whether I be in England or in India,” H. P. Blavatsky, co-founder of modern Theosophy, assured her readers: “a large part of my heart and much of my hope for Theosophy lie with you in the United States —
… your great country which I love so much for its noble freedom — where the Theosophical Society was founded, and of which country I myself am proud of being a citizen.”
