Post 10 – University Education: Ego VS Openness

Higher education should be considered an important requirement in every person’s continued development. This education could be derived from colleges and universities, from trade schools, from apprenticeships, on the job training, or perhaps from the self-study of the autodidact. A university education is one of many excellent pathways depending upon the individual’s goals and opportunities. Yet there are many traps and pitfalls to higher education that need to be considered and avoided along the way.

As a student progresses along the path toward successful completion of their university education, which could be considered stratified levels of achievement, a major stumbling block is the development of the ego. In many ways it seems that the university could be viewed as a great producer of egos. From my humble perspective, the ego is the death of curiosity, of learning, and of creativity. When we think we know something we tend to close our eyes to the ever-changing landscape in which we live.  Though we may become experts in a given field, we need to constantly, for the rest of our lives, remain open. In fact we need to remain open to “not knowing”. If you are alive your education will never end. Further, your continued education may come from the most unlikely of sources… like from a child or from someone who has had little or no formal education… perhaps from someone we considered to be mentally challenged. Remaining intrinsically open is the key to our continued education and to the refusal to accept ego development.

Let us not allow our education to get in the way of our higher learning!
