Philosophy being an exploration into the ultimate truth of human life and existence, it can lead to greater understanding of the fundamental nature of our own existence. This understanding, in turn, gives one a certain purpose, intent and orientation on the evolutionary path and becomes a better version of oneself, in this life. A purposeful evolution oriented life steadies and purifies one’s mind and its activities, and a self-disciplined, purposeful and conscious life leads to ethical behaviour towards everything external and internal. Expansion of “consciousness” is critical in the evolution of humans. Ethics is supremely important in leading a ‘correctly balanced’ and ‘conscious’ life for advancing further on human evolution.

Abstract


Philosophy being an exploration into the ultimate truth of human life and existence, it can lead to greater understanding of the fundamental nature of our own existence. This understanding, in turn, gives one a certain purpose, intent and orientation on the evolutionary path and becomes a better version of oneself, in this life. A purposeful evolution oriented life steadies and purifies one’s mind and its activities, and a self-disciplined, purposeful and conscious life leads to ethical behaviour towards everything external and internal. Expansion of “consciousness” is critical in the evolution of humans. Ethics is supremely important in leading a ‘correctly balanced’ and ‘conscious’ life for advancing further on human evolution.
