Form through the principles and vision of holistic education is to achieve a self-knowledge that allow respected himself and other beings that exist on the planet, having a positive self-esteem, feel integral beings and live in the direct experience of love, compassion, kindness, justice, generosity, human brotherhood, etc. Holistic education is the educational paradigm that promotes the development of spiritual intelligence, since currently conventional education neglects spiritual intelligence, you’re creating automata highly trained in certain skills, but missing humanize the technology so that it can truly serve and improve the quality of life of all mankind; to achieve this it is required to connect with the source of universal love, because the individual and social spirit nurtured are one only, then it is a priority to heal the disease of the spirit that produces selfishness and a variety of possitive, we see it and we live day to day, humanity itself is suffering the consequences and affect all beings on the planet. Developing spiritual intelligence, which is an ability of penetrative vision, allows to understand the profound reality of the phenomena of existence, is the top level and through this intelligence it is possible to overcome the ignorance of the suffering and achieve true happiness, because ignorance is removed to know the nature of being, the being that it is the essence or substrate that gives life to everything that exists. Achieving true happiness is what in reality the human being seeks, each individual has within it the potential to achieve it, you just need to know the path to follow; the road consists of a level of evolution of consciousness that allows humans to act from spiritual intelligence, in this sense the holistic education is an integral and global alternative to form human beings who can live responsibly in society of the 21st century.(Ramon Gallegos.
