A Philosophy To Live By

Wisdom goes back a long way and comes in the form of examples, illustrations, stories, cliches, parables, etc. One of the oldest bits of philosophy says that "for want of a nail a shoe was lost, for want of a shoe a horse was lost, for want of a horse a rider was lost, for want of a rider a leader was lost, for want of a leader a battle was lost, for want of a victory a war was lost, for want of a plan a nation was lost." One variation of that could well be in the form of some ancient Chinese philosophies which are frequently rich in wisdom and truth and, regardless of their age, many of them are as applicable today as they have ever been. They frequently carry truths that apply to people and nations, regardless of the century in which we're living. One of those gems is this one: "If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be duty in the character. If there is duty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world."

This philosophy is both "simple" and "profound." "Simple" is "not complex or complicated, as a machine of simple construction." I believe you will agree that most of us appreciate some things that are simple and easy to understand, such as truth and integrity. The word "profound" is "deep, descending, or being far below the surface, not superficial." Profound also means humble, as a profound reverence for the Supreme Being. That certainly gives us something to think about, doesn't it? So, think about it and I'll SEE YOU AT THE TOP!
