What is Metaphysics?
'Metaphysics' is the study of that which is behind the physical; the exploration, for example, of 'why you and I exist'! 'Metaphysics,' in essence, is about what lies behind the appearance of things. Just like physics deals with the science of 'visible' matter, metaphysics deals with the science of the 'invisible'' spirit!
A commonly employed, secondary, popular, usage of metaphysics includes a wide range of controversial phenomena believed by many people to exist beyond the physical. Popular metaphysics relates to two traditionally contrasted, if not completely separate, areas, such as:
(1) Mysticism, referring to experiences of unity with the ultimate, commonly interpreted as the God who is love, and
(2) Occultism, which itself has two practical aspects:a) The activity of knowing (e.g. extrasensory perception, including telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and medium ship), andThe terms metaphysics and metaphysical in a popular sense have been used in connection with New Age Thoughts, Spiritualism, Occultism etc. Some of the varying understandings of metaphysics have been discussed in the writings of Bertrand Russel, Immanuel Kant, etc.
b) The activity of doing (psycho-kinesis) beyond the usually recognized fields of human activity. The academic study of the occult (literally hidden) has been known as psychical research and more recently, parapsychology.
All knowledge by description must be based on knowledge byacquaintance with 'abstract' attributes.
General rule: "Every proposition which we can understand must be composed wholly of constituents with which we areacquainted."
This means that there must Universals (Plato's 'Forms').
For example,to know that a person is honest, I must know the person and be acquainted
with (the abstract object) 'honesty'. From this basis we logical arrive at the following deductions: We must first distinguish knowledge of things from knowledge of truths. In each there are two kinds, immediate and derivative.
Immediate acquaintance: with particulars (sense data, the self)and with certain universals.
Thus we have the following metaphysical duality:
- Derivative knowledge of things: knowledge by description, involves both acquaintance with things and knowledge of truths.
- Immediate knowledge of truths: knowledge by intuition of'self-evident truths'.
Derivative knowledge of truths may involve anything derivable from
immediate, self-evident truths. Given the above account, all our knowledge of truths depends on our intuitive knowledge!
All metaphysical powers relating to the psychic and paranormal phenomena can be practically manifested by you … today! You can accomplish it by:
1. Going to the alpha level of mind.
2. Using your visualizing faculty
Our mind has tremendous energy. It cannot be easily measured. But it can be partially felt as consciousness. Where our consciousness goes, so goes the energy of our mind. It is this
'mind energy' not 'brain energy' that is the source of our metaphysical power! The mind is a marvelous piece of instrument. Though without cells, it communicates through electromagnetic vibrations at various frequencies! our mind's consciousness seems to contact the consciousness of other minds as if it were all part of the same consciousness. The life energy of a single - celled creature communicates across approximately 50 feet (as per scientific investigations ). Multiply those 50 feet by hundreds of billions of cells in your body and you begin to realize that distance does not really matter! Broadcast your image and the whole world gets attuned to it! If you have the need and imagine or visualize it in a special way, it is as if all the ships at sea hear your SOS and the closest one responds with help! The image visualized reaches the consciousness that can help. And that image becomes that house that book, a warm helping hand, a favorable decision or simply, cold cash! The more relaxed the mind, the better the metaphysical rewards! There are, in fact, ten levels of relaxation as outlined below:
1. Physical Comfort.
2. Eyes closed.
3. Mind stops flitting from here to there.
4. Physical comfort increases to lethargy - no desire to move.
5. Breathing slows down, becomes deeper.
6. Feeling of heaviness from head to foot.
7. Feeling of detachment from surroundings.
8. Feeling like in a trance like state.
9. Ability to create analgesia in hand.
10. Ability to open eyes without affecting relaxation.
Attaining 'Alpha - Level' of mind
This is called 'alpha-picturing'. It is a simple two- step method as
1. Relax very deeply (as outlined above).
2. Imagine in detail, confidently and vividly.
If you were to do this now and imagined somebody wanted to
telephone you, you probably would have to do it a number of times …
maybe over a period of days, before that phone would ring!
Because relaxation can and has to be much deeper than you can
It takes practiced relaxation and practiced imagining to make dollars
flow, locate lost objects, protect yourself from psychic attack et al.
Imagining should also be vivid, detailed and real to make yourself a
brilliant metaphysical miracle worker!
Dictionaries usually describe God as the Supreme Being. Since we
cannot put God on a table for a thorough investigation, God and his
nature is still seen by some as belonging to a belief system.
Scholars, who believe in the theory of evolution, naturally think that
this system of belief must also have undergone its own evolution.
They say that 'animism' (a belief in souls) slowly developed into
'polytheism' (the belief in many Gods) and from there developed into a
belief of one God.
However, it is clear from ancient scriptures of India, which go back
four to six thousand years (longer if we add oral tradition), that their
polytheism is indeed a very precise belief in only one God.
The many Gods, we heard about, are according to their own
explanation no more than qualities and externalizations of the single
Supreme Being. Thus the oldest book on this globe - the Rig-Veda -
"The wise speak of the same One as Indra, Mitra, Varuna, and
Agni ... There is one Truth but the wise call it by different
This sentence alone should be sufficient to clear up another result of
ignorance. Polytheism can rather be compared with Trinity, the
threefold God of the Christians. Generally, Christians, Jews, and
Moslems agree: there is only one God. But there are still many
Christians and Non-Christians who believe that Trinity means three
Gods. That is definitely not true since Jesus himself explains that
there is only one God and we are all part of the One.
Trinity itself is not as most Christians think uniquely Christian.
Trinity, like religion itself, originated from India where it was called
'Trimurty'. Hindus call the Absolute Being 'Brahman' The Son, as
the creative force of cosmic vibration, is called 'Vishnu'. The
returning, ingoing, attracting, dissolving, involutionary force is called
'Shiva'. That is the exact equivalent of God the Father, God the Son
and God the Holy Spirit.
To picture all three as persons is somewhat childish because then we
are thinking in terms of human families. An omnipresent Being should
not be pictured in terms of Fathers, Mothers, Uncles, Sons,
Daughters, etc. In fact, it should be clear that God is not a person and
that when we talk about an Absolute Being or Supreme Being it refers
rather to a condition of perfect Beingness. Knowledge of this fact is
found in all genuine religions and systems of belief, which also
includes that of the American Natives.
Beingness, as the nature of God, is expressed when we hear
American Natives refer to God as the 'Great Spirit.' 'Jahwe' (JHVH \
Jehovah), the Jewish name for God, translates as 'I am who I am'
which is the perfect description of Beingness.
Beingness, then is the nature of God … in fact, Beingness is
Since God is self-reliant and the world is a manifestation of God's
energy, we could call God: 'Self-energetic Beingness'. From the
accounts of the many Saints, Sages, and Self-realized persons, who
have encountered this condition of Being, we may add that this
condition is a blissful state of Being.
