The Meaning of Philosophy

Philosophy, a mother of all wisdom!

Thanks to the Greeks, creators of philosophy, we have asked ourselves at least once about our existence, purpose in life, and many other thought-provoking questions.

But philosophy is even more than that. It is based on the attainment of virtues such as courage and modesty. Virtues derive from doing good deeds and knowing what’s best for you and your community to live a long and happy life.

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 (from Greek, philosophia, “love of wisdom”) also emphasizes the importance of the state of mind. As Marcus Aurelius would say, “Our life is what our thoughts make it.”

Then comes consciousness, thanks to which we can explore our mind, body, and soul on a much deeper level, and it helps us connect with the realm.

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

We are one of the greatest miracles which got the opportunity to create more and destroy less, so let’s not waste our gift.
