How is it really? This seemingly simple question is at the root of many of life’s philosophies, and answers are often based on religion or a call to blind faith. But when we truly ask ourselves this question, we are asking about some fundamental truths about existence—truths that don’t cross or conflict with the bounds of religion, science, creed, or nationality.
Philosopher’s Corner is not a traditional philosophy of life; it is about revelations that we have closed our minds to and lost sight of both in the Western and Eastern worlds, and it is about individually bringing back these lost truths to the forefronts of our minds. Instead of asking us to struggle for the unachievable and the unwarranted. It offers us a way to see how we are intimately connected to the universe—and how our actions can affect the universe, just as a toothache affects the entire body. Prejudice and obstinate, unquestioned beliefs seem inherent to the human condition. But with a new way of thinking, we can come to value openness, learning, and a spirit of examination.
With eighteen lessons every parent should deliver to his or her children in their formative years, Philosopher’s Corner offers a choice—to try to achieve a life of true happiness rather than one destined to greed, selfishness, and unachievable desires. Since these desires are the root causes of anxiety, dissatisfaction, and depression, rediscovering lost, authentic truths can release us from these toxic ways of thinking.
