To Learn What Freedom Means

“So do you want to learn what freedom means? Because that’s what we want to do at Brockwood. In freedom you can discover new things. In the world of science there must be freedom to discover new things. In human¬†relationship, here at Brockwood, we are discovering, or learning, new things about ourselves. If I am fixed in my opinion, I can’t learn. So I must be very careful, be aware of my fixed opinions or judgments; because this is what the world is doing and it’s not learning. People have fixed ideas, opinions, conclusions from which they won’t budge. Here at Brockwood, we are learning to live together with intelligence, in freedom.”

(JK, Beginnings of learning, Chapter 3)
