This involves personal happiness and the similarities between our differences in opinions, perceptions, beauty, perfection, modesty, good health, balanced thought, what we see, what we hear, what we touch, and how we reason and think.
This effects how we balance the events of life and how we manage to live and enjoy the fine-tuned universe, nature and life itself. This is also the ability to maintain a constant line of thought, belief, idea or mission.
God is the father of philosophy, and we aim to be like Him.
There are five Branches of Philosophy.
|Metaphysics||Study of Existence||What’s out there?|
|Epistemology||Study of Knowledge||How do I know about it?|
|Ethics||Study of Action||What should I do?|
|Politics||Study of Force||What actions are permissible?|
|Esthetics||Study of Art||What can life be like?|
Philosophy, as a pillar of living, reflects in promises we make to each other, oaths we strive to keep, taboos and dogma we fight and fear to break, the doubts we hold, music we like to listen, the personalities show and hide, the wisdom search, etc… etc…
This means that we are either looking to regain some part we had but lost, or we want some attachment to something we are part of. As a result, we develop behaviors such as meditation and religion. Otherwise, we develop abilities like mentalism that make us feel like we are part of a bigger, greater and important plan or design. These abilities fight to defeat the greatest mysteries of time, immortality and our identity.
Other times, we attain higher intelligence and understanding of what is around, above and below us, all in an attempt to unlock the mysteries we live within as a key to the mysteries without.
Consciousness is the quality or state of being aware especially of something within oneself, or the state of being characterized by sensation, emotion, volition, and thought, or the upper level of mental life of which the person is aware as contrasted with unconscious processes.
Consciousness entails the awakening of the third eye, which, scientifically, is activating the Pineal Gland. We like alcohol, cannabis, and other drugs that change how we interpret our perception because they make us see what we don’t usually see, hear what we don’t normally hear, and feel what we don’t normally feel. This means we have another personality that yearns to be feed, hungers to see, thirsts to experience, and wishes to be listened. This is the soul.
This explains why some like monks, martial artists, and others live in total and complete self-denial for the benefit of the greater humanity. They only find the waters to quench their infinite thirst soul by serving their soul through the acts of kindness, humility, charity and tolerance.
