What is it and what does it do for you? How can you apply it to your life? How does it help you fulfill/satisfy your desires and reach your dreams? Is it or how is it urgent that you must understand it to be happy, how can it make you happy?

Philosophy is the seeking of purpose in order know and live the proper, best and most pleasurable life, in order to exist as most alive as one can, in order to have power to do what is beyond imagination while avoiding death in this journey to have the power to be alive and have ultimate life, life being that which has power to create more life that has power which is doing all that we know and can imagine to do, because doing and being is more desirable than inertness and non-existence, because to desire is all we can do and we do what we can because it happens caused by time, time being relative movement, caused by unknown to infinity

You can apply philosophy to your life by using the logic to overcome confusion and ignorance. You can use it to help you decide what you desire most.
It helps you fulfill and satisfy your desires and dreams by showing the foundations and meanings of things so that you can know what is truly good for helping you reach these dreams and desires. People have developed philosophy by thinking through complex concepts to find how things fit together. They give you understandings and insights that would otherwise have taken much studying and speculating to find on your own. People use these insights to find the best ways to get what they desire.
All our basic and simple desires are desires have been refined by time and effort so that they help us get what we desire most, so we must desire simple desires so that we can have complex desires, though we have many desires that branch out from the most simple desire for power. We desire what gives us the most power.


It is urgent to study philosophy if everyone is to be happy. People must know what to live for. If society does not have a reason to exist then there is no reason for justice and law or anything because no one would care to obey any law or treat anyone as if they had rights.

I love philosophy and really value its input in my life.

There is a reason for everything.
Everything has worth, to something.

I could make a long list of proverbs, adages.
That doesn't really tell what my philosophy on philosophy is though does it.
I've always seen philosophy as the way the non physical universe works.
It is a bridge between science and spirituality.

Say when someone joins this forum for instance.

Plato once said: "The beginning is the most important part of the work"

useful philosophy imo.

Of course, the beginning is the foundation upon which you build.
Poor foundation and your work will fall apart.
Not a waste of effort though, it can be used as an example of what not to do.
