Learning communities educate for life and lifetime, educate for life means an education more integral which integrates the do and be going more beyond the purely academic training, it means to educate good beings human, free, responsible, happy, generous, compassionate, global citizens, with internal order, with inner peace, open to diversity. Dr. Ramon Gallegos Nava tells us that there are many types of intelligences equally valid: logico-matematica, verbal, bodily, musical, spatial, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalistic and from the holistic education we can add the dreamlike intelligence or intelligence of dreams, the objective of the schools is to develop all intelligences with a holistic sense, thus pluralizing the concept of intelligence, however there are also levels of intelligence and the most important is the spiritual intelligence, the ability to be happy despite the circumstances. Then seeing the enormous problems which human beings live, we need an intelligence based on principles that nourish the human spirit. Intelligence holistic is a creative process much closer the wisdom that knowledge, is the ability of discernment to recognize responsible action, it is linked to human values; It is the deployment of the understanding of the value of life and all human beings. A scientist who works for the war or a politician who destroys thousands of lives cannot be considered as intelligent beings; they can be very clever, effective and skillful but they are ignorant that do not know themselves, are not really aware of what they do. Intelligence is the ability to know ourselves in direct and creative way. Holistic intelligence is a quality of consciousness that leads to comprehensive humanization of human beings; When we are free from violence, corruption, etc., then intelligence there are holistic, and this is what human beings need first and foremost in the 21st century. Dr. Ramon Gallegos tells us that in education holistic works to develop human beings integrated, intelligent and with a deep love of life; loving life is to love learning, mechanistic education works out of the love of learning; learning is a natural expression of the joy of living, students learn how to use their minds, how ask, how to listen, how to investigate, etc.
