Metaphysics is the science of the unseen rather than the seen. It deals with the concept that we are mental beings, not mere humans. It explores what lays behind our daily experiences, examines and practices the power of thought, and studies the unseen forces of the universe, called Universal Laws.
There are books, booklets, and masses of papers to read and ponder, when studying metaphysics. This study requires a serious, inquisitive, honest and sincere mind. It demands faith in the Allness of Good, and states that thought is causative and powerful. The mental-ness and good-ness of all, is the principle concept behind it.
‘Right Thinking’, no matter what the study or lessons are called, is one of the most rewarding experiences. Learning about the Truth and finding out that all religions, teachings, writings of the ancient wisdoms, and New Age ideas, are in principle the same. They are all grounded in the knowledge of God, Spirit, Higher Power, Universe, Consciousness and all the other names given to this all-inclusive limitless Almighty Power. Remember, the essential concept is that we are Souls, spiritual beings, and that our thoughts, conscious awareness, beliefs, and life attitudes shape our experiences. We are all striving to go ‘up’ in the scale of being.
It seems difficult to awaken from this power of illusion, or cosmic hypnosis, that our mortal life presents to us. We still crave earthly pleasures, and that’s OK in moderation. However, we should build our heaven on earth, here and now. It’s part of our journey.
Where we fall short is in keeping the balance between desires of the flesh and desires of the spirit. Those who coast and are mentally lazy will reap the unpleasant rewards of staying in the same daily rut. The only way out is to clear our minds of this mental clutter and lift our thoughts to where they belong. The direction of our Consciousness has to be upward, intentionally seeking a better understanding of Truth.
So, there is nothing mysterious about ‘metaphysics’, it’s simply the learning of seeing life as it is – perfect, mental, indivisible and good!
