Full engagement determines a good education.
Full engagement with reality and all it has to offer is both the process and the end product of good education.
Of course, we have to manage our attention to ensure that we both expend and also recover our energy as we balance our practice of engaging with the world.
That's the core lesson of good education.
Looking towards the results an educated person have the ability to perceive accurately, think clearly, and act effectively to achieve self-selected goals and aspirations.
Most importantly an educated person is able to identify and acquire the knowledge, skills and information they need to improve their ability to solve problems and pursue goals.
An educated person does not rely on their own current level of knowledge and skill, an educated person is aware of how they are embedded within a community of both people and other life forms that can help them.
You are what you think.
If we are what we eat, as the old saying goes,
we may also be what we think. Or how we think, as well as how much we think.
