The Modern Day Use of the Word Metaphysics
The word metaphysics comes to us from Ancient Greece, where it was a combination of two words, meta, meaning over and beyond and physics. Thus, the combination means over and beyond physics. In the definition found in most dictionaries, metaphysics is referred to as a branch of philosophy that deals with first cause and the nature of being. It is taught as a branch of philosophy in most academic universities today under the label of Speculative Philosophy. In today’s world, however, the word metaphysics has become a description of many fields of interest. When one expresses an interest in metaphysics, that interest may be in any one or a combination of the following subjects: Philosophy, Religion, Parapsychology, Mysticism, Yoga, ESP, Dreams, Jungian Psychology, Astrology, Meditation, Self-Help Studies, Positive Thinking, Life after Death, Reincarnation, etc
The common denominator of these and all similar subjects, of course, deals with an exploration of reality. In the idealistic sense, the question becomes how does such knowledge benefit human life on this earth, both individually and collectively? If this is the aim of such interests, it is why most professional Metaphysical Practitioners regard metaphysics as a spiritual philosophy of life. All but a very few practitioners in metaphysics today have a pivotal point of some sort of spiritual philosophy in whatever system or teaching of metaphysics they are engaged. It is important to understand this, especially when reviewing the legal technicalities of being a professional Metaphysician.
If we were to travel from one metaphysical teacher or organization to another, we would find people engaging in different things, all under the label of metaphysics. This could be a wide range, such as yogis, mystics astrologers, positive thinking teachers, life-coaches, meditation teachers, grapho-analysts, spiritual healers, self-help teachers, etc. The range is wide, but the basic denominator is the search for truth, purpose and meaning in life, which cannot be isolated from basic spiritual questions.
Metaphysics is defined as the branch of philosophy that examines the true nature of reality, whether visible or invisible. Metaphysics includes the relationship between mind and matter, substance and attribute, and, fact and value. Basically, metaphysics is the philosophical study of being and knowing.
If you knew, without a doubt in your mind, the answer to each of these questions would you enjoy every moment of your life? Would you also experience ultimate peace of mind?
