Unlearning School

What you are stepping into

Reading the book "The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse" for the second time, a quote got me thinking:

"I wonder if there is a school of unlearning" said the boy.

Well now there is.

Most of our lives, our minds have been fed up with clutter, nonsense and instructions on how to do things. We've been robbed of our creativity, intuition, and freedom of choice:
Our childhood is full of manipulations from parents leading us towards achieving what they longed for in their lives. Our education system ingrained in us the mindset that work should be boring, and whatever rules and evaluating system designed by them is what's best for us. At work we learn that there is always a hierarchy we should climb, that our value is determined by how much we offer to sacrifice in order to benefit them, and how much we can fit into the same structures that schools imprisoned us in.

As we move forward, at some point, we get tired of trying. Something's not right. Wait! What is right?
We feel lost, wandering around, looking for some other education system to tell us what's right in life. I mean, that's the only way we know something is right; right?

What I write here are stories of moments I unlearn something. Those moments where I realize the so called "facts" I was so sure of, turn out to be nothing but a mindset deeply ingrained in me, or just a misinformation I blindly believed without looking for the why.
