The ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius said “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” In it’s original essence, Philosophy was not meant to be heard, read or studied, but to be lived. And it is meant to be lived in day-to-day life through Action – more specifically, through the right action at each moment. We have all at some point in our lives faced the dilemma of choosing the right course of action in a particular circumstance – and sometimes we choose, while at other times we defer the choice and remain in inaction. Our world today is one where there is no dearth of options, yet indecision takes hold of many, sometimes with serious consequences. In such times, we can turn to wisdom of the ancient cultures to learn and apply keys to identifying and actualising the right action, thus taking control of our lives. It is exactly this idea of Philosophy in Action that we explore in this issue of The Clarion Call.
