The Concept of Love

Share

The Persian poet Sadi once in his spiritual ecstasy, found himself walking among the burgeon gardens of Elysian Fields (paradise), brimming with exotic blooms and rare perfumed heavenly flowers.
He thought to gather a few in his apron for friends at home, but the exquisite fragrances intoxicated him so much that he dropped the apron together with the flowers. Endeavouring to tell his friends of the wonderful sight and the rare aromatic scents of paradise on his return, he found it impossible, because the human tongue was too poor for such heavenly description.

Η Ουσία της Αγάπης

Ο Πέρσης ποιητής ‘Saadi’ κάποτε μέσα απ’ την πνευματική του έκσταση, βρέθηκε να περπατά πανευτυχής ανάμεσα σ’ ανθόκηπους του παραδείσου, πλημμυρισμένους από εξωτικά λουλούδια και σπάνια σε ευωδιά κάτασπρα τριαντάφυλλα. Σκέφτηκε να μαζέψει λίγα στην ποδιά του να τα μοιράσει στους φίλους όταν θα γύριζε, αλλά η μυρωδιά τους ήταν τόσο έντονη που τον μέθυσαν πέφτοντας και η ποδιά του μαζί με τα τριαντάφυλλα.

Education

Education is useful when the student is taught how to think liberally and not just to copy academic literature. Excess of education often produce lower intellect, intolerant and Calvinistic attitudes. It was never meant for humans to study a lot in order to find the right work in their life. All humans where born with certain talents to follow in life, which lead them to a unmistakable happier living with intellectual and spiritual success.

Healthy Explanations

The father of medicine, Hippocrates, set primarily in each new doctor a definition along with the standard oath, that: “You cannot be good a doctor without being a philosopher at the same time.” We know that the philosopher besides the reflective, observant and intellectual learning is also a strict naturalist, which rightly so that the ancient Greeks used to call them Iatrophilosophers.

For this reason I would like to expand a bit on this definition for the ordinary person with a slight variation: “You can never be cured completely by a physician when he is unable to explain to you in simple language, the cause of your illness.”

Υγιεινές Επεξηγήσεις

Ο πατέρας της Ιατρικής, ο Ιπποκράτης, έθετε πρωταρχικά σε κάθε νέο γιατρό ένα ορισμό παράλληλα με τον καθιερωμένο όρκο, ότι: «δεν μπορείς να γίνεις καλός γιατρός χωρίς να είσαι και φιλόσοφος ταυτόχρονα». Γνωρίζομαι ότι ο φιλόσοφος, εκτός την στοχαστική, παρατηρητική, αναλυτική και διανοητική του ευμάθεια, είναι και αυστηρός φυσιοδίφης παράλληλα, που ορθά οι αρχαίοι προγονοί μας τους ονόμαζαν Ιατροφιλόσοφους.

Thinking and Destiny

Share

Nothing in life arrives by luck or accident without first being planted by our own thoughts and deeds? Wealth, poverty, happiness, unhappiness, success, failure and what else, are all part of our thinking process. We become what our thoughts and deeds are -and harvesting exactly what we have planted there. Good luck, co-incidence and external opportunities for success in life, are only random voices of ignorance and superstition. They resemble the hooting of the owls in the night, which only the daylight will calm and silence.
