Admit it or not, we all have philosophy in life. This kind of philosophy is planted in our minds when we were young. The bulk of philosophy that we have is formed in the first seven years of our childhood. Philosophy is the major part of our subconscious processing that influences the decisions we make, every action we take, and even the outcomes we experience.
Ideas serve as the building blocks of our life. But how does philosophy can save the world? Or does it really can save the world? Pulling from the history, social science, psychology, and personal narratives, philosophers were able to trace the patterns and present different theories for why we behave and think the way we do.
If you have been in a kind of relationship that lasted longer, you know how important it is to communicate well. With this separated world, we should communicate who we are and how we really want to be related to. It is not something that happens naturally on behalf of each party. Most of the philosophers agree that there are times when our hearts and minds outrun words and the powerful, albeit words remain symbols that we utilize in order to express what really lies inside us.
A simple kind of lifestyle is having all the essentials to live along with the mental locks to facilitate the emotional well being. When our physical needs are met, philosophy will then remind us that they are only a few, the basic desires of the heart and mind remain. The simple pleasure is what feeds our own essential selves.
Philosophy as the Life’s Elixir
Man does not only live his life to survive, but also to make the most of the self-experienced or self-developed concept, thus giving rise to the custom and tradition, civilization, culture, morals, habits and manners, religion and community, and ideologies. This is a concept in which humans develop unconsciously or consciously for himself.
There is no doubt that philosophy is one of the greatest needs of our life. It comes from nowhere, but it’s the outcome of the self-intuition of humans. Feeling the truth and practicing it in our daily living is about the great importance of philosophy in our life. Knowing about our self is beyond the approach of science and most of all the scientists who pride themselves on their own discoveries and inventions. They have come to realize that their own success is mainly confined to observation and knowledge, which in the first place are unable to take them right into the cause of lying behind the common calculation and reasoning.
There are people who believe that philosophy has no significance mainly because it deals with things that are beyond our own perceptibly as well as understanding of everyday living. It is highly evident that philosophy is one of the best kind of healing, which does not only soothe our mind and body, but also eliminates the cataract of ignorance in order to see the truth. It is an elixir that spurs people to wake up from the dogmatic slumber that seems to have locked our own spirits.
