“There are only two things to worry about, either you are well or you are sick.

If you are well, then there is nothing to worry about.

If you are sick, there are two things to worry about, either you will get well or you will die.

If you get well there is nothing to worry about.

If you die, there are two things to worry about, either you will go to heaven of hell.

If you go to Heaven there is nothing to worry about.

But if you go to hell, you’ll be so damn busy shaking hands with your friends.

You won’t have time to worry!!”   Unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

World Philosophy Day November,19,2020

“Wear your ego like a loose-fitting garment” Buddha

This day is celebrated every year on the third Thursday in November. Celebration of this day is supported by UNESCO, which initiated it in 2002.

What is philosophy?

Philosophy derives from Two Greek words, Philos (love) & Sophia(wisdom).

Simply put it- Love of Wisdom.

Philosophy sheds light on the causes of various situations happening in this world and when you start asking questions in the form of ‘Why’…. remember, you start thinking like a philosopher

In other words philosophy is nothing but knowledge seeking.Questioning oneself and others.

“Worthless people live only to eat & drink.People of worth eat and drink only to live”  Socrates

Why people have a general opinion that ‘Philosophy’ is a boring subject?

After all in life, anything can be boring…..is it not so?

Why not Love of Wisdom? It too can be boring when you have different interests. But remember……

“If you are bored, you have not been looking at life closely enough”  Leo Babauta

Philosophy is nothing but the flow of thoughts. And if you think the flow of thoughts boring……then none can help you, since your thoughts can be as boring as you are!

Maybe people don’t believe in reality or are not interested in pursuing the truth, they are not to be blamed, since everybody is busy in their way.

I shall put it in a much simpler way.No body has got time.

Someone coined the term ‘Evasion of Reality’

In the modern world subject of philosophy is limited to scholarships.

Why philosophy is important?

“No man’s knowledge here can go beyond his experience” John Locke

Somewhere I read ‘Philosophy is the science of sciences’

Knowledge of philosophy helps us in critical thinking.

Philosophy can be applied in any of the fields.

Take home message

“Science is what you know. Philosophy is what you don’t know”. Bertrand Russell

Wishing the readers a happy philosophy day.

Thank you.

Namaste🙏🙏🙏

Please remember that ‘Beauty’ can mean different things to different people.But the common factor remains same,that,there is something positive about life, there are innumerable reasons why life is beautiful but I mention the facts,which I think are important to know.

Alcohol

“A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.” Louis Pasteur

I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.coolfunnyquotes.com

 

A glass of beer shortens your life by one minute, a glass of wine by two minutes, and a day of work by seven to ten hours.

 

When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading. Henny Young man

 

The first glass is for myself,the second for my friends,the third for good humor,and the fourth for my enemiesWilliam Temple

 

The present and the past walked into a bar. Things got a little tense. onlinefun.com

Time is Funny…….You want to know Why…..

Yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream. Kahlil Gibran

All us have same 24 hours,but then each one of us react to the same available time based on our mood.It’s really funny !

Time is Slow-When you wait !

Time is Fast-When you are late!

Time is Deadly-When you are sad!

Time is Short-When you are happy !

Time is Endless-When you are in pain!

Time is Long-When you feel bored!

Every time ‘Time’ is determined by your feelings and your psychological conditions and not by Clocks.

So have a ‘NICE TIME’ always.

Finally

Remember ‘another time‘ known as ‘Free Time‘ ! because

“Free time is the most expensive time you have, because nobody pays for it but you. But that also makes it the most valuable time you have, as you alone stand to reap the profits from spending it wisely”. Jarod Kintz

Thank You.

Happy World Philosophy Day ( Nov 15 th )

“I know that I know nothing” Socrates

Philosophy derives from Two Greek words,Philos (love) & Sophia(wisdom).

Philosophy sheds light on the causes of various situations happening in this world and when you start asking questions in the form of ‘Why’…. remember,you start thinking like a philosopher.

An unexamined life is not worth living” Socrates

By celebrating World Philosophy Day each year, on the third Thursday of November,UNESCO underlines the enduring value of philosophy for the development of human thought, for each culture and for each individual

“Philosophy is an inspiring discipline as well as an everyday practice that can transform societies. By enabling us to discover the diversity of the intellectual currents in the world, philosophy stimulates intercultural dialogue. By awakening minds to the exercise of thinking and the reasoned confrontation of opinions, philosophy helps to build a more tolerant, more respectful society. For UNESCO, it is also the way to unleash humanity’s creative potential and generate new ideas. Philosophy creates the intellectual conditions for change, sustainable development and peace. ”

Audrey Azoulay
UNESCO Director-Genera

This field, which sees itself as a form of “wisdom”, teaches us to reflect on reflection itself, to continually question well-established truths, to verify hypotheses and to find conclusions.

(UNESCO)
It is a day for people to share thoughts, openly explore and discuss new ideas and inspire public debate or discussion on society’s challenges.(timeanddate.com)

Do you know This day also includes

1.Clean your Refrigerator day and

2.Use less stuff day.

Thank you
