Philosophy Of course we will start there The word itself comes from two Greek words philos and sophia Meaning love of wisdom Thats good for starters but its not enough What is enough It is enough to wonder Every time that you wonder you are doing philosophy not necessarily as a discipline but as a vehicle to enrich your life Stop wondering and you might as well say you have stopped breathing As I trust you know breathing comes naturally So does wonder To breath and to wonder have a lot in common Little fear Much hope Much anticipation It is when you are not breathing easily when you are choking that fear despair and gloom set in To breathe and to wonder are one with life If you can enjoy both you are truly alive Philosophy can be seen as a quest for truth For some it is the search for God For others philosophy helps them achieve clarity of thinking Still others find a certain peace of mind through philosophy because they see the world in perspective allowing them to achieve distance from immediate concerns There are those to whom philosophy is a super science a synoptic synthesis of all humanitys cognitive endeavors Others will link the spirit of philosophy to the divine seeing the unfolding of a mystical coalescence with nature and God Some will identify the divine within the human There are those who see nothing but absurdity in both the human and the divine Guess what Philosophy explodes with possibilities At one time or another in our lives we do philosophy with any one or a combination of the above reasons and even more reasons than we can mention Whether we are wondering all alone in the solitude of our private lives or in the companionship of fellow travelers in life perhaps the bottom line would read philosophy is as philosophy does To wonder as we wander cannot help
