Stuck in the System's Box

I want to go outside. I don’t want to look at trees through windows as if they are on display at a zoo. Or is it me who is in the cage? It feels like one. We take these classes that a lot of, we never use again. It’s not to learn, it’s for the sake of the system. They teach us facts and points, no HOW to learn. What happens when we leave here? When we haven’t been taught how to keep learning throughout our lives? There’s a song by a man named Jack Johnson. It’s called “Breakdown” and there is a part that says,

“The wisdom’s in the trees, not the glass windows.”
We learn through experience, not facts. How many times have you really learned much at a zoo? Not much, the little you do is from your observations with the animal, aka your experience. The same goes for life. If the world ended today, would I really want to be found in a school? Why not be found out in the world, learning FIRST hand how it is. Our system is dead and we don’t realize it and if it doesn’t change, the world and everything in it will slip from our fingers. It’s time for us to break away from our fogged and distorted paradigm and see what we forgot was around us. Take in God’s world.
