They are the four pillars of learning: learning to learn, learning to do, learning to live together in a responsible manner and learning to be. These four learnings of the holistic education have also been undertaken by the Commission for education of the 21st century of UNESCO. Ramon Gallegos pointed out that spiritual intelligence is today the most important and necessary since it comes to resolve the fundamental problem in the field of education and training. There is a growing need for spiritual things. We live in a society hedonistic and nihilistic, with little significance, where the motivation for humans comes the pleasure of owning material things i.e. attachment to pleasure this being a false path to happiness, inevitably leads to suffering, because us away from our true happiness that lies in being and not having. Hence the need for an option that allows us to overcome suffering and achieve happiness and this possibility of being truly happy only you it complies to recognize that the road to happiness is the spiritual realization. We need a balance between material well-being and spiritual realization that spirituality is the knowledge of the true nature.
Ever the hedonism and nihilism may provide us true happiness. Hedonism and nihilism want to achieve happiness mainly through sensory pleasure, namely through gratify to ego, the more we pursue and we stick to pleasure more empty we stay, more unhappy living in suffering. The nihilism and hedonism have been developed by our ignorance of our true nature, instead of seeing to the transpersonal being us, we see pure ego, narcissism and materialism, creating a huge misunderstanding on the meaning of life, living a miserable world full of confusion, moral collapse and the loss of meaning to live. The problem of hedonism and nihilism is so serious that it is necessary to understand them thoroughly and then see how the spiritual intelligence is the only one who can cure us of such evils.
