Thinking positively and remaining steadfast are very important in this life. Learnings from the age-old sacred texts like Shrimad Bhagavad Gita and other sacred texts help in evolving from the depths of toughness. There can be various different ways for keeping up in difficult situations and it completely remains an individual choice. The shlokas from Shrimad Bhagavad Gita and other sacred texts are mentioned in this article. Concepts of Positive Psychology, anecdotes, biographies and other similar sources help us to understand the intricacies of life. Inspirational songs, movies, poems and related literature can be the source to keep oneself going. Facing the realities in life and finding solutions by various positive means is the need to sustain life. This paper highlights some ways by which one can think of positivity and keep oneself going as such and at times of difficult situations.

Moreover, when the illusion is discussed regarding sense perception the sensibility also faces doubts, but because it is the relation between subject and object it is given the benefit of doubt and it appears before us as the valid source of knowledge. Perception is the functionality of the sensibility so the validity and invalidity along with verifiability depend upon the mode of perception and sufficiency of perceptual. Similar to perception, intuition is also considered an important source of knowledge in Indian philosophy though it is not given such importance by western thinkers especially when this intuition becomes the mode of supersensible knowledge. The question here again is about validity and invalidity. The validity of the perceptual world is justified through so many methods but do we have any justification for the validity of intuition regarding the supersensible knowledge whether supersensible perception or supersensible inference? This research paper deals with this problem having the ideas of three illusions regarding the transcendental dialectic proposed by Kant in Critique of Pure Reason and the theories of Khyātivāda regarding the error in knowledge from the different Indian Schools of philosophy.</p> Dr. Manoj Kumar Copyright (c) 2022 Indian Journal of Ethics, Logic and Philosophy 2022-12-01 2022-12-01 1 1 21 30 The Nature and Mystery of Soul in Relation with Cosmic Energy https://apricusjournals.com/index.php/ijoelp/article/view/28 <p style="margin: 0cm; text-align: justify; line-height: 150%; background: white;"><em><span lang="EN-US" style="color: black;">This article is related to the nature and mystery of the soul in relation to the cosmic energy that existed in our vast and endless Universe. The soul in any living being is in the subtle form of energy. A soul is also a form of consciousness that emerged in living beings from birth and ended with death. In this article, there is a vast discussion on various views of Indian, Western Philosophers and various scholars on nature and the existence of the soul in the living being. The energy existing in the universe can be observed in a huge form as well as in microscopic forms also. The energy is found in biotic as well as non-biotic things of the universe. The soul is energy or consciousness, and then it must be related to cosmic energy. Cosmic energy is generated and exists not only from the sun but also from various elements. It also exists in the universe in the form of electromagnetic waves. The soul is in the nature of consciousness or energy and it is formless. Nirguna means beyond the formless and invisible. In our body, the soul is very open and exists very shallowly. Soul is immobile. Soul can't be held. Soul is himself and is also gigantic. So, in this review article, we tried to correlate the energy or consciousness that living beings possess with the cosmic energy of the Universe.</span></em></p> Mr. Raju Sitaram Nandkar Copyright (c) 2022 Indian Journal of Ethics, Logic and Philosophy 2022-10-06 2022-10-06 1 1 10 20 Criticism, Counterpublic and Social Change – A Postcolonial Philosophical Appraisal https://apricusjournals.com/index.php/ijoelp/article/view/25 <p><em>Modern criticism emerges out of a struggle against the absolutist state and power. Criticism was seen as a re-formative apparatus, appealing to the standards of universal reason but still is typically corrective and adjusting to the new emerging conditions of the industrial capital. However, in recent times, it has ended up as a review of books by a handful of individuals, through the foregrounding of literature as the compendium of the vital concerns of intellectual, cultural and socio-political aspects of a historical epoch. As academics, for the most part, not engaging themselves with any substantive social interest, the role of the critic has become synonymous with that of the detached intellectual, along with the absence of counterpublic. But postcolonialism attempts to change the colonial/colonising structures, giving emphasis on the subjectivities but still collaborating with the varieties of suppressed identities within an overarching framework of decolonisation, attempting to collapse the frontiers between the academic institutions and the political society. However, whether postcolonialism serves the purpose of the cultural logic of late capitalism or it has the potential for mobilising the counter public against the structures of oppression still remains a question.</em></p> Dr. M.
