Spiritual intelligence

Follow-up to In search of spiritual needs: First Encounter with Sant Mat from Wee Hoe's blog

After due consideration, I changed my mind. I didn't attend the following talk on Sant Mat. Instead, I read books and articles on spiritual intelligence.

In a graduate skills training session, titled 'Managing Emotional Awareness' (attended on 16/5/08), the trainer presented spiritual intelligence as a type of multiple intelligences. After the session, I did further reading to know more about spiritual intelligence, and I encountered Tony Buzan's The Power of Spiritual Intelligence: 10 ways to tap into your spiritual genius. Coincidentally, I received a forwarded email from a Malaysian friend, stating 13 sentences of words of wisdom:

  1. I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you. 
  2. No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry. 
  3. Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. 
  4. A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches
    your heart. 
  5. The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them. 
  6. Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile. 
  7. To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world. 
  8. Don't waste your time on a man/woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you. 
  9. Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful. 
  10. Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened. 
  11. There's always going to be people that hurt you so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around. 
  12. Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try and know someone else and expect them to know you. 
  13. Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.

    True friends: How many people actually have 8 true friends?
    Hardly anyone I know ! But some of us have all right friends and good friends!!!

In response to that, I wrote the following feedback:

I discover that most, if not all decisions we made or going to make, are based on our personal values and the cultural values in the society we stay or live.

Try to rank your personal values on various issues or aspects of life (like wisdom, moral, family, loveship, friendship, social status, health, wealth, career, hobbies, religion, justice, food, sex, power, freedom, etc). Then hold your ranked list of values and read the 13 sentences. You may see things differently.

I regard this as a way to know more about ourselves and others, including the one you love or live with.

The search for spiritual needs continues...

Serious Games?

As part of my research study, I am looking for reasons why some people regard game-based learning as core model that shapes the future structure of education while others insist that game is meant for leisure activities. If I integrate game and learning, then I might invade the leisure part of their living, imposing learning even when they merely want to have fun during their leisure time. They strongly oppose towards ‘serious’ game—when you make games serious, the so-called games are not games anymore.
