Philosophy: The Art of Living
Philosophy is a subject that many people avoid. They perceive it to be a subject that is either for academic scholars only or for those who merely enjoy sitting around contemplating the great questions of life.
But Philosophy is actually a way of living. And whether we realize it or not, each of us is living according to our own philosophy each and every day of our lives. Our "philosophy" is what guides us to make the day-to-day decisions that we make. Our philosophy directs our code of ethics and our ideas about morality.
Philosophy is more than just ideas in books written by various thinkers throughout the ages. Philosophy is alive. It is living. Like history, which we are also making anew each day, philosophy is also being created through us and the way in which we live our lives.
Are you disatisfied with some area of your life? Well, before you can alter that area of your life you must first change how you think - not just about life but also about yourself. You must change your philosophy. You must be willing to open your mind to new and innovative ideas that will inspire you to approach life and all it has to offer differently.
Philosophy, when it is understood as it is meant to be, is an exciting and colorful adventure. Through philosophy, you can travel further than you ever thought possible and achieve that which you now only dream about.
You don't need to be a deep thinker or a scholar to develop a passion for philosophy. All you have to be is open-minded and eager to learn.
