MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE IN CHILDREN



"Intelligence is the ability to solve problems, or to create
products, that are valued within one or more cultural settings."
(- By Howard Gardner Frames of Mind, 1993. )
What type of intelligence do you expect from your child ?
How do you like him or her to develop his or her intellect
and talent ?
Is it one of those number crunching abilities ?
Do you want your child to develop a number of verbal and
language skills ?
Do you wish your child to be an extraordinary athlete ?

All these above questions are may be from the parents/techers/care taker of the child and it is for their attention.Let us unite and understand our child and the multible intelligence.it is our dedication for all the child.

In the past, experts defined intelligence as something that can deal effectively with the environment that includes an inherent ability to reason and solve most common problems that occur on a consistent basis. However, there were doubts raised on how one can define and describe intelligence and smartness in people, especially in growing children.
In 1983, Harvard scholar and psychologist, Howard Gardner proposed a new and fresh theory on intelligence in people that contained much more than just simple definitions of intelligence and smartness. According to Howard Gardner, the words multiple intelligence are new and fresh look at identifying, explaining and defining the word ¡° intelligence ¡±. A growing child will have a range of abilities and skills that relate to a particular area of activity and performance.

Howard Gardner suggested the following descriptions of the multiple intelligence domains. Instead of having or owning just one type of intelligence, it is claimed that children possess several different intelligences.
1) Kinesthetic (Body Smart):

NO WHERE TO GO.BUT WITHIN


In today’s world we are the most comfortable beings on this world as far as the technological conveniences and comforts are concerned. Here, the question is, are we really comfortable in terms with our inner-world or the joyfulness is concerned ? it is not. is n't it?

I have found one thing, after being with many people, they all running their life ...with so much of inner urgency, always hurry, rushing towards something externally, and not able to hear or fallow their inner -voice, simply they all ,always busy or doing something restlessly, even it is not necessary. Which, they would have thought that, it was very essential at that moment. If, one’s look at all those previous / past happennings.it is all look funny now. Now one may realize that, its all waste of time or one is not satisfied about it...why is it so..!! It’s Almost happens with every one, than what shall we do about it. There is a way....


Just stop, still, pause, relax, and take your own time to decide what you are going do to. Do not rush. Hear you rinner-voice or instinct / intuition / hunch…listen, than proceed...enjoy all your doings willingly,...without any urgency...its not needed...this is the way you can attain your contentment / fulfillment...whatever you may do. Does it with totality. that will give you new meaning and grace in your life.

It’s like this - the wild-water always rushing towards, it does not know where it’s going and where it destiny ends, but it simply rush & rush destroy so many things. And it may not be as useful as the normal river is.


The river, flow smoothly, and spread its wing's every where. to the farm land, to the plants, to the people and the cattle in and around...and finally merge into the ocean...because it is channelised properly towards its destination.here the end point for both of the rivers are the same. but the water wastage in wild flood water is so high.

We all are restless as far as our external world is concerned; we are like the sea waves at the top.We must be calm like the deep sea. No disturbing waves, the water is calm. Content enough, without any outer wave’s disturbance, we must learn the art of going deep within us....this is a rare chance for you to go within you, there is no where to go? There is nothing to achieve. Use / transform all your external conveniences / comforts / energy to go within you. It is the real bridging of the two worlds and live a life of blissfulness.

Where is our mind?

Our human mind is invisible and intangible, it is nowhere in the body, and it is also everywhere in the body. It present in no where and existing in everywhere. Its magnitude is immeasurable and it doesn’t require a space for its existence. The mind is made up with subtle matter of various grades of density with different rates of vibration that goes on fluctuating according to the individual mode of conditionings, and that’s why every human mind function in different ways, each and every one has a unique mind of their own.

THE NEED OF TODAY’S WORLD

THE NEED OF TODAY’S WORLD

One of the most excellent mechanisms in our world is our mind Even our modern science is unable to describe or define the whole of our mind, they all are defined many perspective of our mind but not yet, as a total of it, or as a whole of our mind. They all reached to some extent, beyond a point they are unable to go and define the total. Because the mind is such, to understand or to define, It is because no one is properly taped the potentiality of our mind, not only that, if one need to understand the mind, he/she has to use their mind, and hence this understanding itself is limited, and if, really one want to know means, one has to go beyond one step forward or higher than one’s mind, so that you can see your mind from outside as a outsider, that may lead you to focus and understand your mind completely. If, one realized all the truth about one’s own mind, and then only at least he or she is able to explain a bit or whole about it. We, so called Homo sapiens reached or trying to reach everywhere, the moon, the mars and trying to reach many other far away planets in the cosmos and to some extent we are capable of reaching the far and beyond, But as far as our own mind is concerned, it is still seems to be untouched or unreachable to the whole. So that motivates us to study more about our own mind. With this inspiration We need to study more and more about our mind, it is very much indeed of our today’s world, once we properly understood our own potentiality of our own mind, than what ever we study or learn will have more quality and meaning in it, and whatever we do with that understanding will pulsate with our life energy. We have to touch and reach or taping the overall capacity of our own mind. Then the individual realization will come latter on, but the study or the more study about our mind in all perspective is urgently needed. Let it be in psychological, philosophical, and spiritual, sceintifical, social, historical, cultural, religious, let it be anything, each and every aspects is, as important as the mind is concerned.

WHAT IS MIND?

What is mind?

Mind is like a sky, a pure sky without clouds on the surface of it. The thoughts are like clouds, which almost cover the mind, cover the sky almost all the time. Because of these clouds, we are unable to see the real sky; the real sky is hinders behind the clouds. When we look it from the other side or outside, as if the sky does not exist there, only the clouds are. But it is not so, in reality the sky is the mind which is always there. When thoughts are passing like clouds, it seems as if the thoughts are the mind. But Mind is a pure sky without clouds of thoughts. Since the thoughts are always floating on its surface as if, we feel there is no mind underneath, the mind appear only when the thoughts of clouds disappears. When it is necessary, the mind certainly appear like a crystal pure sky without clouds, when it is not in need, it hinders behind the formation of clouds, which always moves and moves, like our thoughts. Our mind is very subtle, it is almost all the time covered with our thoughts and thoughts process so on so forth. And hence, it is difficult for one to have encounter with one’s own mind unless until one has a higher awareness about one’s self. The one who is less aware of this can not encounter with their own mind, and for the one who is more and more aware about his or her own thoughts and capable of controlling or focusing it to a single pointedness can easily encounter his or her mind easily. For others it is not so, more focus is essential to achieve or encounter the mind.

The few words about the mind: - the mind is very subtle, and it is intangible, the mind is nothing but a conglomeration or bundle of thoughts, it is also called chitta.

INTRODUCTION TO MIND

INTRODUCTION TO MIND

The mind is within you, but it is really a projection of the society inside you. It is not yours. It belongs to all, all those past and the present generation, your parents, fore fathers, your religion, your nation, your politician, your priest and so on. Your mind is the real storehouse of all those past and present impressions. As the evolution in progress the mind also progress along with the evolution of the human race, and hence what ever I think in my mind, it is not alone mine, it is the refined outcome of the thought process, which I have accumulated deep in my mind from my environment or surroundings from my parents or where I’m born and growing day by day.

The mind, which is in our control, is our greatest strength,
The mind, which is uncontrolled, is our greatest enemy,
The mind can be our greatest strength and it can also be our greatest enemy.”
-GITA

As J.Krishnamorthy said, “ we are the world”, it is exactly right, this world is of our creation; it is created by our mind.

Whatever we experience in this world is also as per the condition of our mind. When one’s mind is depressed, one is depressed. And one is depressed to him or her world appears to be depressed. Similarly one’s mind is happy, one is happy and entire world seems to be truly a wonderful place. That is essential. We develop our mind in such a way that we turn out to be a better person and experience the world of greater joy and happiness, whether we want success in the materialistic world or the supreme happiness of spiritual realization, our mind is the only equipment we have for attaining it. With it we can make a better choice, a better life.

Remember everything we do, the way we talk, walk, sit and stand, eat, work, laugh, think, behave, see, etc., all are reflects the quality of our mind.

So, it is purely our choice to lead a happy and joyful life or a full of sorrow and miserable life, all this capacity or wisdom to choose the best is depends upon one individuality or the quality of one’s mind, who ever is capable of tuning one mind is capable of enjoying and celebrating one’s life.

When one understands all this above process, systematically under the guidance of a proper guru, one can attain all this transformations. When one attains this transformation one will gain all the natural power of the macrocosmic world and one is having higher awareness with greater mind caliber with vast potentiality. This is the real transformation, which will make one free from all kind of slavery, bondages or discriminations etc, this is the true transformation.

I received nothing. I received everything.
