Metaphysics is defined as the branch of philosophy that examines the true nature of reality, whether visible or invisible. Metaphysics is the philosophical study of being and the “extension of knowing”. What is the meaning of life and why am I here?. Metaphysics helps us to define our mission. What is my purpose and what is my reality?
It underscores spirituality. Who and what is God and what will happen when I die? It also helps us to self-examine fundamental elements of living. Can I discover prosperity and abundance of health, wealth and happiness?
Metaphysics is often divided into two separate categories, Ontology and Natural Philosophy.
Ontology is the philosophical study of the nature of being, existence or reality, as well as the basic categories of being and their relationships. It is a look at what is beyond the physical or visible recognized fields of human consciousness. This includes the tenets of a good life, spirituality, theosophy, dream psychology, yoga theory, meditation, positive thinking, life after death and reincarnation and extra sensory perception, to name a few.
Natural philosophy or the philosophy of nature, is a term applied to the study of nature and the physical universe that was dominant before the development of modern science. It is considered to be the precursor of the natural sciences such as physics. This includes astrology, cosmology, natural laws of the Universe, Universal life force and energy as medicine.
Metaphysics has been called everything from New Age Psychology to the Taoism of Life!
There are many principles about the theories and postulations of the metaphysical world. Space, time, motion and continuum look at philosophies of the physical world versus the non-physical world. For all intents and purposes, my studies in theology and ontology have revolved around our “extension of knowing” and its purpose in the healing arts for mind, body and spirit.
So at Peacefulmind.com, I focus on the principles of self discovery, living with nature, intuition, energy cycles and the flow of consciousness, thought and awareness.
