Throughout centuries great literary works have been written by authors, gurus, prophets, philosophizers, ancient civilizations, and religions. Let's explore the teachings and perhaps raise our consciousnesses.
There is much to be learned from the stories, attitudes, and beliefs of the past. Even if we ourselves don't hold to those beliefs or attitudes we can learn from them.
First-hand accounts of the rise and fall of civilizations are contained in ancient texts. Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.
In many ways with all of our modernization, we have forgotten many valuable lessons. Lessons we now as a society need to reapply in our day to day lives if we are to survived the times to come.
The world we live in did not come with an instruction manual. the generation before us did leave us a wealth of their experiences to guide us. To set an example for us whether good or bad. There is no excuse for a lack of knowledge. Except making the conscious choice to be ignorant!
To explore in depth the writings, beliefs, and history of ancient societies. Compare them to modern times. Discuss how the beliefs, attitudes, practices would or would not be beneficial today.
