The Way of the Wayseers ~ He Sings Out ~ An Educational Manifesto

Garret John LoPorto

This is for you...

This is your calling Wayseer
You’ve found your tribe
Welcome home…
Welcome home to a family of 7 billion souls – struggling to survive
Welcome home to a planet in desperate need – a tiny dot of life – hurling through the outer reaches of space alone
Welcome home to your generations calling – to heal this world

Society is sick but you have a unique capacity to change things
because your awakened mind can replace the thousand dysfunctional rules of society
with just three simple guidelines
Turn on. Tune in. and Drop Out.
Each of these sacraments builds on the next… First you must…

Turn on – to what you are.
You’re wild and intuitive and you take it too far. Your ability to see out of the cage.
Lets you take us all – to the next stage.
Doesn’t matter – what the experts claim -
You got the vision that’ll change the game
Now you know what you came here for.
You got the keys to unlock the door
Turn on to what you are.
Tune in the Sacred Light.
Drop out of all the lies.
Turn on to what’s inside.

you might have felt alone
Cuz you were different in a world that never understood you
Authority figures looked down on you – you wouldn’t conform to their expectations
You wouldn’t give in to their misguided rules and you didn’t respect their unjust systems
you just knew there was a better way
Deep inside you could feel the heavens open up -
starlight beaming down upon your consciousness
trying to remind you of the higher calling you came here to fulfill
trying to incite you to riot against the prison walls erected inside your mind
trying to get you to experience the revelation that awaits you
when you

Tune in – to the Sacred Light.
Giving the authority to the power inside. The Way, the Truth, the intelliegence of Life.
Lay claim to what society denied.
Love – unites us (all). Doesn’t
matter what you call it – just that you call.
tap – the ancient wisdom of creation
Let your mind fill with light and revelation
[Now you’re flyin with divine revelation]
Turn on to what you are.
Tune in the Sacred Light.
Drop out of all the lies.
Turn on to what’s inside.

Now you’re turned on.
you’re tuned in.
You see things differently.
You see the answers that are intertwined and contained inside of the problems.
You see the opportunities to create better systems that shed light into this world.
(But don’t get hooked on your new ideas.)
You see all those helpless souls still stuck in their systems?
You know attachment is what keeps them there…
You know programs are the shackles that bind your consciousness -
But they’re only supported by your choice to stay hooked into images from the past
At any time you can withdraw your support from old structures
that are no longer helpful or necessary
That’s when you exercise the third step…

Drop out of all the lies.
Sure the system had you – till you opened your eyes
Bad habits, Status, Greed and compromise
That’s all just slavery in disguise.
Don’t get hooked on nonsense from the past
You gotta realize nothing man made will last
men can’t offer a permanent solution
That’s why we need this nonstop revolution
Turn on to what you are.
Tune in to the Sacred Light.
Drop out of all the lies.
Turn on to what’s inside.

An Added Word...

This the Educational Reform of 2012
All Learners ~ Potential Made Real

Garret and I co-presented at a workshop several years ago. I first learned of his work via: "The Davinci Method," which was in total alignment with the APOGEE Achiever™ Program I had initiated in 1983. He presents most certainly a spirited, heartfelt and defined mission of awareness, confront, resolve and change, one that echoes a mission I defined in 1960, when I began my teaching career. As you peruse the various offering and articles here posted, you will see that it is YOU that defines the Winning!!


  1. A poetic response, a passionate plea, a call for awareness, a call for creative solutions, a call for what will serve each child's need for healthy growth and development, a posted video, a posted petition, a posted blog link, all in the name of our ability to be the change we know in our hearts We Can BE ... this the power of our FB community...our Blogging community... care, awareness, faith, advocacy, and our ultimate responsible action.

    1. In a conversation today with a social worker from CPS it became alarmingly clear that treatment decisions are based upon codes rather than human needs. In spite of what has been effective and notably beneficial to a child, the 'treatment' could not be approved because no where in the codes was there approval for Educational Therapy that included creative activities such as watercolor painting. Yet the natural outflow of feelings that were prompted by the selected activities were indeed meaningful to the child. When asked what kind of behavior modification program had I initiated, the answer, "love" did not have a box to check nor an assigned code.
