War and Peace

Book Review   by:Bhagouauty     Original Author: Leo Tolstoy
ª
 
Leo Tolstoy has conveyed that holistic approach for peace is to open the window and see the other humans as we are. Thus, outreaching to them crossing the door to curb our tendency to separate the thinking from the feelings and disturbing the coordination present between the thoughts and the feelings as Martin, the main character does. This coordination is the playground of our psychology and psychiatry, which influences the personal life and the sociological aspects. The attempt in this novel seems that we make an effort to learn that there is a relation between the thinking and the feelings, which we have to bridge.

This bridging as the coordination is the management, the art that our conscience uses, with the help of the self. The conscience can coordinate the most relevant feeling for any thought, this turns our thoughts into the creative thoughts, and it is one part of the management. The other part is that we seek and need thoughts for the feelings that have. Our conscience provides the best possible feelings for any thought, and these feelings are scientific. Therefore, the coordination is between the creativity in the thinking and the scientific touch and or the rationality in the feelings. We may come to the point that creativity needs rationalization otherwise it cannot be a creative thinking and able to constitute any creative art.

There is no creative art, which we may claim to be non-scientific. The science as such is not a subject when we use it in the creative thinking and the arts and co-relate with the feelings. We are using the terms of the science to comprehend the ideas. The creative arts and thinking need systematic and well-organized approach. For example, the child while imitating for learning uses the laws and the principles of the nature, which are scientific in nature. The science thus does not give us any freedom without following the natural laws and the principles; it is the subject, which constitutes the hard and fast rules, which we all have to follow.

If we consider the science as a whole, we have no room for any art, feelings and the creativeness. Our human self and the conscience follow the laws and the principles of the nature and we have the feelings, which work, as the tides reaching to touch the seashores of the knowledge so that we may feel. In the novel, Martin follows these holistic tides and thus attains the joy of peace and bliss. In the subject matter of the Philselfology, we have two factors that make science working for the creativity and feelings for managing and the developing the moods.

The creative thinking follows the science in the artistic way and the scientific feelings follow the science in economical way, as we learn to save the emotional energy for using it in the best boosters of the emotional energy working as the transformers, the moods, the glandular systems, which have harmony with the laws and the principles of the nature.

How Martin enjoyed each moment making the peace tasks as if it was a war for peace. In modern terminology, we may claim that we fight for truth and or peace, however the novel conveys the real approach. It is the personal approach for the people, whom come in our contact. We learn to use the natural laws and the principles as the holistic ways of life. It is the easiest way for peace. As we have discussed earlier, the science is learning of these laws and the principle, however when we use, apply and excuse it these at the self and the conscience level, we do not have the laws and the principles taking away the freedom that these provide if we are in harmony with these.

We have used the term scientific feelings, and it is for the application of laws and the principles of the nature that we go through while we feel. For example, in the music, the sounds in the harmony with laws and the principles create it, but if we break even a single law or principle, we have the noise, the war for no reason, which cannot have the healing effects, rather it creates the thought pollution, unnatural way, the breaking of the laws and the principles.

All kinds of pollutions varying from the thoughts to that in action and in matter is just the breaking the laws and the principles of the nature. We all know it well that nature is the best health healer, curer, restorer, but on the conditions that we have the proper approach for it. The thoughts and the feelings are there; we use the creativity present in the nature for creative thinking and the science for the feelings and our conscience as the seed of all of the laws and the principles.

The self sprouts the thoughts and the feelings so, we have included the sprouting power of the self in the topic of the scientific feelings are just well managed and organized emotions which we use for serving our fellow humans. The creative thinking is to philosophize the common needs that we all have as humans, naming it Philselfology. These are the golden footprints Martin leaves, which the novel leaves behind in each word. The theme work of the novel seems to have the seed of how much land does a man need, philselfologically.
