Philosophy: Simplify !
Philospophy is just a way one likes to think. Thinking is hardest thing people can do and therefore mostly avoided.
Philosophy from Greek: φιλοσοφία, philosophia, 'love of wisdom'
Freedom is your Birthright
"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." - Goethe
You were born free, yet most of us live in chains. Religions and ideologies (~isms) limit your freedom and shape your life according to their plans. Governments can't give you freedom. Their job is to protect your freedom.
Who controls your mind?
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." ~ H. L. Mencken
If your mind would obey you, this morning did you tell it to create happiness or anxiety? If you do not control your mind, someone else will. If you don't have a plan, you become part of someone else's plan.

TV Programme: It's called programming for a reason.
1. I do not take it to be true;
2. I do not take it to be false;
3. I do not say you're wrong;
4. I do not not say you're right;
5. I do not say it is true or false;
6. It is both wrong and right, true and false at the same time.
Such is the dilemma of relative truth. It is just the finger pointing.
Although I've never been to India (yet), most of my spiritual education and thinking comes from there. This ancient wisdom appealed to me as it not coercive, but simply inviting. It doesn't condemn or try to convert.
