A plethora of meanings can come from the word philosophy. It is so vast and complex like the universe itself. Nevertheless, it is one of my favorite things to learn about; probably because there are no concrete answers and most aspects of it make your thoughts evolve beyond their norm.
With so many forms of philosohpy, I dove into looking into the 'believing' defintion of the word. A few years ago, I stumbled upon a book that talked about what the Toltecs believed in and there were 4 Agreements that they followed.
Be Impeccable With Your Word - Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others.
Don't Take Anything Personally - Nothing others do is because of you. What others do and say is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.
Don't Make Any Assumptions - Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.
Always Do Your Best- Your best is going to change from moment to moment, it will be different when you are healthy vs. sick. Under any cicumstance simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse and regret.
Beyond these, I also believe that being humble, grateful, and selfless can really fulfill your purpose in life.
