Would you like to integrate my extensive innovations on wisdom/emotional-health/brain education? Please review the following and get back to me. I am claiming that I've figured out wisdom! Wisdom above all is pure love and just as love is an emotion so is wisdom. I have 2000+ published articles on wisdom like the following: https://brainwizard.medium.com/wisdom-3-0-b6e03324e64a https://youtu.be/nmzwj-W8Mww http://www.einpresswire.com/article/129471443/how-we-figured-out-wisdom-from-the-story-of-adam-and-eve https://www.einpresswire.com/article/538776131/the-emotional-health-magazine-promoting-wisdom-through-wise-parenting-of-the-young-and-brain-therapy-of-the-rest https://www.einpresswire.com/article/538023560/biden-s-efforts-to-fix-child-education-and-mental-health-will-require-full-attention-on-children-s-emotional-health https://www.facebook.com/WhiteHouse/posts/218562230212628 https://www.einpresswire.com/article/467766776/emotional-intelligece-departments-at-universities-need-to-be-renamed-and-redesigned-as-emotional-health-departments https://www.einpresswire.com/article/525908495/finally-a-team-of-nobel-prize-winners-are-saying-and-asking-for-action-what-i-have-been-saying-and-asking-for-50-years https://www.einpresswire.com/article/535012444/kind-attention-biden-harris-team-there-is-a-path-to-transforming-america-into-real-health-happiness-prosperity https://www.einpresswire.com/article/534093946/calling-the-biden-harris-team-to-take-action-on-the-fact-that-america-is-the-land-of-the-emotionally-challenged
NY Times journalists are the top of the top experts, and yet I can point out how there are better solutions than what they are proposing. They publish my criticism of their solutions, even Paul Krugman, a Nobel Prize winner, agrees and approves my work. #1 "A Better Address can change a Child's Future" - Nicholas Kristof (president of Opinion writers), NYTimes. Moving children from poor neighborhoods to rich ones is a half-baked solution as to how many can be moved? Can we abandon and desert the bad sections and implant them into good sections? It is not possible. The better solution is to convert bad neighborhoods into good ones by creating better and better opportunities in all neighborhoods. Good neighborhoods provide better emotional health infrastructure support to create emotionally healthier children and improved education, sport, and social opportunities. This creates better human beings. Emotional health is the foundation of health, yet there is no testing or manual for emotional health. As a result, America remains, by and large, an emotionally challenged country. This remains a problem even in the so-called great opportunity neighborhoods. As a result, even the rich neighborhoods turn out emotionally challenged self-images/minds/brains where the personalities are driven by the phony belief of being the best. This sets up us Americans to feeling the best with impossible means of becoming the best. As everybody cannot be the best, especially with even the richer neighborhoods producing well-educated minds along with emotionally challenged brains. (Our experts lumping the brain and mind as the single entity of the mind compounds the problem of emotional health.) There is this huge opportunity to improve the main stumbling block to top emotional health even in rich neighborhoods where it is mainly lacking. The biggest cost-effective solution is to convert America into an emotional health superpower by bringing the emotional health support structure to every neighborhood, rich and poor. Our World Leaders must either show me a better plan of their own or add my Wisdom 3.0 to their agenda. http://www.einpresswire.com/sharea.../RjAOPJunEyCtbxUEeS0MFA “THERE IS A SIMPLE TRICK TO CREATING A WISE SOCIETY.” — @Brainwizard https://link.medium.com/yYKO8x8dCX Defining Wisdom as Emotional Health and Focusing on and Generating Emotional Health Will Create a Wise Society․ s.einnews.com/P4TcZC3q6x Science and Religion Are Both Two Sides of the Same Coin․ s.einnews.com/CvxsGiRCLg Creating Definitions That Make the World Wise․ s.einnews.com/l9YESzCK57 MY BIGGEST INVENTION: Emotional Health Quotient (EHQ) (Excerpt From My Patent Application). Please Use ... s.einnews.com/A9yeYk8a0h #2 Paul Krugman In economics, emotional health matters more than any other factor. Yet economists pay no attention to emotional health. Why do you think fifty percent of America struggles to make ends meet? Why do you think sports stars who make tens of millions become bankrupt within four years of retirement? Why do you think women live longer and lead better lives? Why men commit the most crimes and are socially messed up? It is all due to our experts and leaders are ignorant regarding emotional health. It is all because our experts lump the brain that generates emotional health and the mind that creates professional expertise as just the single entity of the mind. As the brain is under the radar screen, brain education is not only ignored, and the brain is miseducated. Miseducated brains generate messed-up emotional health. As emotional health is the foundation of health, education, economy, happiness, prosperity, relationships, our castles are built partly on the sand. You have been giving us incisive cutting-edge, and groundbreaking insights into the economic crisis faced by America. Yet even you ignore the biggest economic crisis facing America - the emotional health trap that our economy is chained to. Let's start with an open letter to our leaders and experts to focus on emotional health. https://www.einpresswire.com/article/538776131/the-emotional-health-magazine-promoting-wisdom-through-wise-parenting-of-the-young-and-brain-therapy-of-the-rest
By design or by ignorance our experts and our leaders are guilty of crimes against our very own kith and kin. Today human beings are the biggest virus against our own humanity. One big step to create human values is to change the way we create hell on earth instead of heaven. Here is a song I have produced to show what we are doing wrong and how we can fix this perpetual mistake:
Hello colleagues. I need about 1,000 teachers to complete this brief 5-minute survey for my doctoral dissertation. Any current or former teachers/instructors at any level can participate (from Pre-K to Higher Education). Please help me by completing this survey about teacher burnout, workplace obstacles, and intention to remain in practice. It is completely anonymous! Helping a fellow educator is a great way to show some teacher love right now. It's a big ask, but would you mind sharing this with your teacher friends? Thank you in advance for helping and forwarding this message along to your colleagues. SURVEY LINK:
Honorable Director: You Sir have an opportunity to play a much bigger role beyond the present virus crisis. Fate has thrust you onto the center stage and you are doing a great job. After the current virus crisis is over you have the opportunity to address America's #1 problem: Emotional health (EH) is the foundation of health, education, society, happiness, relationships, moral values, wisdom, peace, sound sleep, relaxation, mind and body rest etc. and yet we have no testing or manual for EH. Please consider spear heading the introduction of EH testing and a mandatory manual for EH. Wisdom above all is pure love and just as love is an emotion so is wisdom. Just like love, wisdom springs from an emotionally healthy brain (not mind). For all practical purposes wisdom is EH. Thus wisdom education is emotional health education (therapy). American society is a mess as we do not have EH education. Ever wonder when civilization is improving why the social ills are as bad as ever? It is because we have cutting edge mind education that pushes civilization forward but the messed up brain education keeps society's emotional health as messed up as ever. All social ills are emotionally challenged behavior that are generated by emotionally challenged brains. Emotionally challenged brains hurt us in innumerable ways. For example almost half of America has trouble making ends meet and a huge section has no savings. It is because we make good money with our well educated minds but we spend it with our miseducated brains. The social ills are the symptoms of emotional sickness and yet we try to address them directly. It is like the house is on fire and we try to manage and control the heat and the smoke. No wonder society is as emotionally challenged as ever. Look at all the problems that are created due to lack of brain education. You have an opportunity to help shape America into an emotional health super power. I have already done the hard work of creating a step by step path to create a wise, emotionally healthy society! https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwj6mPeStsToAhUhl3IEHQQaCm4QFjAAegQIAxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fmedium.com%2F%40sajidalikhan2%2Fwisdom-3-0-b6e03324e64a&usg=AOvVaw1Q8Xq9tLKo2QVlsTM7IphR https://youtu.be/nmzwj-W8Mww
Congratulations to Commissioner Joan McLaughlin for her second term. The department will continue to progress under her incisive leadership. I would like to bring the following to her kind attention. The most urgent foundation problem of the world has to be addressed first before all the other problems can be tackled. The very foundation of healthcare, education and society are in a mess as long as EHD is ignored; (EHD is a term that is present on the net as emotional health disorders. So I may call this disease as EBD (Emotional Baggage Disorder). #EBD) For this problem I have coined the term Emotional Health Disorder (EHD). Eighty percent of the population suffers from EHD from mild to severe. Just one of the effects of EHD is bad relationships that result in divorce, cheating, abuse, wars. drug addictions, unhappiness, sleeplessness, crime, greed, unfocused student minds etc. I want to hand over all the work I have done on optimizing consciousness to all our leaders especially like our Commissioner McLaughlin who is always looking for innovations. My hypothesis has vast applications. https://medium.com/@sajidalikhan2/wisdom-3-0-b6e03324e64a https://medium.com/@sajidalikhan2/what-is-wrong-with-the-world-af213786a406 Also I would like our leaders to consider an educational movie or at the least a documentary on wisdom. We can even start with a world anthem on wisdom. I have several story lines. Here is my basic hypothesis: https://youtu.be/nmzwj-W8Mww We need Wisdom Day, Emotional Health Day. Wise Upbringing Day, EHD, day etc. We need a web based Wisdom Land, Brain/Mind Power Club, Shy Power Club Create Emotional Health testing and manual. We need to create EHD, EH programs in schools, organizations, government offices etc. We need to create Emotional Health (EH) departments in hospitals and all institutions. I do not have any educational credentials but you can see my innovations work. https://www.einpresswire.com/article/136087104/braintecness-the-next-generation-mindfulness-the-latest-science-of-becoming-your-pure-self https://www.einpresswire.com/article/132998220/a-new-key-to-the-art-of-living-braintecness http://www.einpresswire.com/article/371010393/my-biggest-invention-emotional-health-quotient-ehq-excerpt-from-my-patent-application-please-use-this-innovation PS: I have the #1 digital formula that has several applications. One of them is very popular with presidents and other leaders. It is my presidential rating test. In the current presidential contenders Mike Bloomberg comes out on top. I put the result on his page and it is the most relevant comment there.
