Ramtha school gives us cultural diversity

June 17, 2014 

I have been a grade school teacher for over 20 years and have been a student at Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment for eight years. I have just returned from an RSE event in South Korea where hundreds of Korean, Chinese,Taiwanese, Belgium and Japanese students gathered to learn quantum physics and how to utilize their brains to create reality. I was learning with a group of international students from every race, color and religion. Everyone of us was there by choice. No one made us come and no one made us stay.

During my time as a student at RSE, I have had the opportunity to meet many people from many diverse backgrounds. Regardless of language, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation and religious affiliation, the unifying thread is that all of us are willingly in pursuit of some sense of purpose and meaning to our world and ourselves. Many of these people are current students who have relocated to call Yelm their home.

As residents, neighbors, and community members the question to ask ourselves is, “Is this cultural diversity a gift to our small community?” If yes, RSE is a benefit to where we live and JZ Knight as owner, has brought a rich experience to all of our lives. If no, perhaps the qualifier of racist need not go any farther than looking in the mirror.
