Metaphysics - the Study of the Nature of Reality
Metaphysics is the study of the nature of reality.
A correct understanding of reality can lead to thoughts, feelings and actions that result in a healthier, happier, more prosperous life. The study of Metaphysics - the principles and universal laws that underlie everything we experience as physical reality - is the predecessor to success in all areas of your life; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
How can you study metaphysics?
To know the nature of reality requires first hand experience. The meaning of "to know" is "to go through".
You might read about metaphysics in books, listen to lectures, and watch videos. But until you experience the laws, principles and their effects first hand, what you might call "knowledge" is actually a belief. You hear about a scientific study, read a book on philosophy, and believe that what others conclude is true.
Learning about metaphysics from other people is a great way to get inspired and motivated to conduct your own research and experiments. For example, in my lessons I might say that physical reality is made up of thoughtforms (images) given substance by feeling (energy) in your mind (the space time that holds all thoughts, feelings, images and ideas). But how can you test this for yourself?
Some of the best ways to begin:
Some of the most effective and time tested ways to begin experiencing the laws of metaphysics are meditation and spiritual practices. But if you are not into that, there are as many ways to learn as there are people to study.
In the last few hundred years, the scientific method has become the most applied and trusted method of exploring physical reality. In recent years, quantum science and spiritual science have attempted to understand and explain how the nonphysical aspects of reality function. If you are not a scientist, you might have to rely on researchers to get your information. If the results obtained by scientific research seem to confirm your personal knowledge and experience then it can add to your understanding and ability to apply metaphysical principles to your real life.
If you are an artist, musician, writer, or involved in any creative process, these activities can be a window into the nature of reality and the study of metaphysics. The ability to create requires a conscious connection to our inner source of creativity. This inner source is what many people call God. But even if you are not religious, or are an atheist, a direct connection to the process of creativity can lead to a very powerful and personal understanding of the creative laws of the universe.
Engaging in sports and spending time in nature are another way of attaining a meditative state of mind, allowing you to access deep inner knowing and inspired insights. Any type of physical activity that allows you to get out of your head and into your heart can facilitate this process.
