To bring about this transformation, we need to complement (not replace) the currently existing outer education with an education of our inner life.
We need to complement the currently existing horizontal education, which occupies itself with the outer world, with a vertical education, which occupies itself with the inner world and the reality of the Soul.
We need to complement the lower concrete education which speaks to our lower concrete mind, with higher abstract education that speaks to our higher mind.
We need to complement the currently existing field of education with new advanced methods and systems of thought and of life which have the capacity to link an individual not just to other individuals upon Earth but also to the world of Souls, the kingdom which it is our evolutionary destiny to enter.
Education, in its truest sense, is the training necessary to cope with the existing conditions and precipitate a new enlightened world. It is the process whereby man receives the information necessary to be a valuable citizen in the world of which he is an integrated unit and a wise parent to their offspring. Therefore, in the words of Djwhal Khul, „the coming education could be defined in a new and broader sense as the Science of Right Human Relations and of Social Organization.“
We need a new educational curriculum that provides more suitable methods of studying the human being, a new educational system that recognizes the Law of Rebirth as a natural process in life and the existence of Esoteric Astrology as a conditioning fact in reality.
The Science of Soul Psychology, the Science of the Seven Rays, and the Science of the Spiritual Constitution of Man all need to be brought to the attention of the public consciousness and enter the curriculum of public schooling.
This integrated and advanced curriculum, which again shall complement and not replace the currently existing curriculum taught in schools, will produce properly coordinated, wisely developed, highly intelligent and mentally polarized individuals. However, before such an integrated curriculum can realistically become part of the public school system it has to be brought to the attention of the public through other, minor channels. The I AM University seeks to serve as one such channel (among many).
