Education to Me

Jampa
Posted May 3, 2015

As a prisoner in Plato’s allegorical cave

This education of my dreams

Not merely as the daylight path

And soul ascends to intelligent realm

Or else my cave world

Then seen as eternal damnation in Hell

This education of my dreams

Is hope

And self-realization

The realization of values of the soul itself

Even so it’s enclosed to the cave

It is not about knowing to stand up

Or turn away from the firelight

Seeing the shadows of illusions

For it creates a tendency

The Tendency to demean my ignorance

Thereby stuffing with guilty, disgrace and indifference

This education of my dreams

Not to implant sight

Nor to orient my directions

It rather proceeds on the understanding

Or recognition

The recognition of infinite capacity of intelligence

Or Innate treasures

The great potentials then to explore … to expand

Dust the smoke off the limitless gems within

This education of my dreams

Not just to liberate me from the chains

Or then to uncover the reality in outer world

It is to rediscover being liberated from inner cave chains

But gets trapped in outer world chains

It is to allow me to have direct access

The access to the point of comprehension

Higher consciousness, insight and clarity

Of my connection to the space

The space in both darkness and lightness

Within spaces, between these poles

Life flows while discovering the profoundness beyond

And it is to empower me to bridge the fractions

To moderate frictions

To foster harmony

As nourishment to the soul

And boundary-free state

Subsequently sparks curiosity

Generates novelty

And creates whole tapestry of my life

This education of my dreams

Is a medium of communication

Only a way but never an end

The source of talent, potentials, inspiration

The hope brims the soul

Only if to acknowledge born within

It is all to discover oneself, myself

Unchains from the submission

To reality or illusion

Even in Plato’s cave

Ultimately

This education of my dreams

Liberating the mind to soul

The soul for the prospects

Prospects of life

Creates a meaning in life

And to thrive relentlessly

Dear Jampa,

Thank you so much for sharing this. I really enjoyed the lines “Dust the smoke off the limitless gems within, this education of my dreams, not just to liberate me from the chains, or then to uncover the reality in outer world, it is to rediscover being liberated from inner cave chains.” Plato’s Allegory of the Cave is such a fascinating story and I really enjoyed reading this and seeing the struggles of the individual and how that connects to the dreams of education and the power that it has in wanting to fight to get out of the cave. Thanks again for sharing.

Sincerely, Alyssa Rust

Dear Jampa,

Like a Tibetan prayer flag, your poem calls for global understanding of just how profoundly education is the answer to how to resolve collectively the problems we face in the world today. Imagine the wisdom that will be set free as every girl now prevented this basic right is given the opportunity. What a celebration that we have you.

With much love,

Tam

Yes yes, absolutely dear Tam. Let's together imagine that every girl is free from socila stigmas, free from injusice, free from violence and every girl is fully liberated to live, to get quality education,  to flourish and to  have this world transformed in their way, our way with full of love, compassion and empathy. How wonderful the world would be.

Thank you, 

Much Love,

Jampa

Jampa,

That piece of writing you just did was amazing. I felt mo ved by every line you wrote. I espeically resonated with,

"The recognition of infinite capacity of intelligence

                                 Or Innate treasures

            The great potentials then to explore … to expand

This is true an education for all is extremely important and the use of an education is very powerful. The opportunity is greater than anyone can express. 

Thanks for sharing!

Dear Jampa,

Beautifully expressed and the dilemmas of illusion and reality that you have expressed are though provoking.

Cheers to womanhood!!!
