Wisdoms by Erol Göka

Intaniye (infectious diseases) comes from the Arabic “intan” meaning “rot, putrefaction”. There is also the word “degenerative” in medicine, in the sense of degeneracy, degeneration… All right, doctor, medicine and life are closely linked. Also do you want to say something? Yes I want. Putrefaction by microbe contamination; Corruption and degeneracy for all kinds of reasons are not just diseases that happen in the body! A person’s soul, even his heart, can rot, and become degenerate. Let’s pay attention to the heart diseases that we have caused with our own hands.

*********************************************

The rhetoric is important. Whatever a person has to say, he should say it in the most effective way. However, if an expression cannot rely on a solid contemplation and experience, it is empty talk, even if it looks good at first glance. It’s not beautiful, it’s empty. In my beautiful country, there are many good-looking empty talkers.

*********************************************

Physical sciences and engineering still remain inviolable. A sane person doesn’t come out lest I get to know in this field. Psychology was the most, followed by medicine, the uneducated, self-proclaimed allusions; Recently, the biology-genetics realms have been increasing.

*********************************************

How interesting is the sociology of knowledge. Almost everyone has their own opinion in these areas, and everyone thinks their opinion is the most correct and justified. He doesn’t think so, he believes it is.

*********************************************

I believe that there is a deadlock in the books on psychology. The author and publisher want to go beyond the academic format because the general reader demand is too high for these books. But often the end of the rope is lost. The difference between academics’ books and so-called personal development books is getting similar.

*********************************************

There are friends who think that showing off and pomp is living well. Will it ever happen? When I see such types, a sadness fills my heart and I think, “What a long way to be a human being, the poor guy”. Beauty is, after all, temperament and harmony. There is no good life without beauty!

*********************************************

Desire to win without making any effort, by nurturing only “aspirations” for a goal that they want to be realized in the future,
It is the existential ground of all kinds of gambling passion in our inner world. “There is nothing but labor for human!” (The Quran Necm/39)

*********************************************

“Ignorant is based on the delusion of the future; Smart is based on what he does.”

*********************************************

“Perhaps we all have, in one way or another, some degree of desire for immortality.” That’s what we wrote in our book “Goodbye” on death and mourning. When I read the hadith, “A person who hopes to come out tomorrow, he also hopes to live forever”, my opinion was strengthened.

*********************************************

A good father-son relationship is worth the world. Never give up hope on your son, do not break the ties with your child, our friends…

*********************************************

While the Prophet Solomon was taking wisdom lessons from Lokman, he asked: “What is the secret of longevity?” Lokman replied: “There are five conditions: little food, little words, little greeting, little revenge, much patience…”

*********************************************

In ancient Greek, “sophia” meant wisdom, and “philosophia” meaning “love of wisdom”. Muslims took over this understanding. The philosopher, who tried to comprehend the existence in a deep and encompassing way, was called the “hakim”, and the philosophers were called “hukema”.

*********************************************

Philosophers (government) were concerned with medicine as well as with all other fields of knowledge, but this was more of a theoretical interest; They were trying to develop a philosophy of nature and medicine, they were thinking and questioning the meaning of life, death and the good life.

*********************************************

In today’s Turkish, both “judge” in the sense of judge and “physician” in the sense of doctor come from the Arabic word “judge” and the fact that these professions cannot be practiced without “wisdom” is emphasized.

                       *********************************************

The media says that one of our brothers looked for himself with the rescue teams. Look, is that you?

**********************************************

“Sweet and satisfying dreams are also rare, as Schubert said, as rare as joyous music.” says Theodor Adorno. He is right. The rhythm of life is like that for almost everyone. Sorrows and joys are few, ordinary lives are many. In that case, the issue is giving value to the ordinary…

*******************************************

While modernity pursues knowledge (epistemology), it has forgotten the basic structure of the world, life and human beings (ontology). He amassed a lot of knowledge, poured it into technology, complicating life so much that it made wisdom impossible.

************************************************

There are some who have anger problems, they are always angry, they are in a fight with their shadow, they breathe in everyone. It is very difficult for them to deal with their tantrums, and there is no point or use in confronting them with their anger and discussing the issue with them.

*************************************************

We always wonder what a child will be like when he grows up. I’ve been doing the opposite for quite some time now. I shrink an adult with negative feelings into his childhood in my mind, I imagine what kind of child he is. The dream of her innocent times helps me a lot to calm down.

**********************************************************

“Come to your senses, I am waiting for you there,” says Özdemir Asaf, but I wonder if he was there at that time? Man is the only creature that has trouble with himself and walks towards himself. So it’s great but unfortunately most of them are not aware of it :))

*************************************************

Regardless of their religious beliefs, I think that just as every person has a personality, they also have a spirituality. I understand “spirituality” to mean the web of meaning that adds purpose and ideal to human life. Everything that makes our life meaningful falls within the realm of spirituality.

****************************************************

It is necessary to evaluate the increase in interest in psychology together with the increase in interest in history, science fiction and astrology. What we lack is what we focus on. Unfortunately, science and technology could not fill the spiritual space in human beings and increased the meaning gap.

****************************************************

Even if the modern life is difficult as a Muslim, we need books that will tell us that we can live in a healthy and beneficial way for our environment, our country and humanity, without falling into ideological and political fanaticism, and based on virtues, and that the vast majority of us do this anyway. I wish I could write.

**********************************************************

All our ways of believing, of intervening in the world, fall within the realm of spirituality. The engineer who has built a nuclear weapon, the young man who whirls the roads with his latest model car, the tyrant who makes people’s lives miserable, all of them are involved in the world with their actions, but in the way their own spirituality predicts.

***********************************************************

“Spirituality is the search for any transcendent dimension and meaning in human experience; The way a person lives his faith is the way he relates to and gives meaning to the ultimate conditions of his existence, and therefore the way he gives meaning to his life… In our opinion, every person has a spirituality just as he or she has a personality.”

***********************************************

You immediately recognize two people who truly love each other, and I think the love we feel in lovers is the most sharping  image.

Even more beautiful than the most beautiful people.

****************************************

Wherever we go, we stay in the main location, in the homeland, because our language is tied there, we cannot escape ourselves, we always arrive at ourselves.

We are particles of water, we will meet in the ocean eventually.
