Metaphysics is one of those concepts in spirituality that has taken on a somewhat different meaning to any of a number of possible definitions including:
- ‘Philosophical study of the nature of reality, concerned with such questions as the existence of God, the external world’
- ‘System of first principles and assumptions underlying an enquiry or philosophical theory’
- ‘Branch of philosophy that deals with first principles, especially of being and knowing’
In today’s terms metaphysics is more likely to be used as a broad term covering different techniques used in spiritual practice to bring people into alignment with their soul-purpose and the pure joy available in the physical world when body-mind connection is explored with spiritual overtones.
An apt description of metaphysics must acknowledge that occult influence and spiritual pursuit of the meaning of life are co-joined in a bid to allow the multitudes to explore hidden layers of conscious awareness for greater connection to Body Mind and Spirit.
Namaste and happy exploring of Self for your bliss in life.
