The Meaning of Philosophy

Philosophy, a mother of all!

Thanks to the Greeks, we are not afraid to ask ourselves who are we, what is our purpose on this beautiful planet and many other questions connected with the human being and life itself. But philosophy is even more than that. It starts from the roots of our existence. It answers the question on how to become a man.

One of the methods to achieve it is to cherish the virtues which usually comes from good deeds and of course there is wisdom.

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

Buddha

Philosophy (love of wisdom) emphasizes the importance of the state of mind. It’s been accumulated with various thoughts which then creates the reality.

Our life is what our thoughts make it.

Marcus Aurelius

Then comes the consciousness which is mind’s sister. With it, we can sense our mind, body, and soul and without it, the reality is hard to be seen.

The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.

Lao Tzu

For now, the only thing that’s left to be written is that we are one of the greatest miracles which got the opportunity to create more and destroy less!
