Thank you so much for spending some of your precious time exploring my blog.
From talking with others over the years, I realize that few people have the right idea of what a genuine metaphysician’s spiritual path and lifestyle is really all about. So many things are labeled metaphysical that have little to do with sincere metaphysical study.
Though I aim to keep quiet about my true spiritual life with the people I’m around all day, I am asked directly sometimes and so I have to answer honestly. After all, “honesty at whatever cost” is one of the spiritual principles a sincere spiritual student must live by, or they’re not very spiritual at all.
Please God, can’t I just pick and choose the spiritual laws I would prefer to live by, because O how that one pains me!
When I tell someone I am a metaphysician, for example, at best people think I mean I practice “some eastern religious thing” like Hinduism or Buddhism. And while certainly metaphysical teachings are imbedded in every major religion, and in these two in particular it has been well preserved and handed down, the metaphysical path and the religious path are not the same things.
At worst, however, when I say “metaphysician” or “aura” to just about anyone, it tends to conjure up images of the occult, tarot cards, crystal ball gazing or even witchcraft (black magic). These are not the metaphysical path for spiritual growth that leads to God knowing and real spiritual power either. Much more on the difference in future posts.
But I once thought just the same when I heard about things like metaphysics and the aura.
So I get it.
I understand the skepticism, scorn, automatic revulsion, and even fear. Some of it is well-earned, but mostly there’s just a lot of confusion, jumbled-up-mismashed-info, misguided naivete, and plain ignorance out there on this topic.
But the sincere students & devoted teachers of the genuine mystical traditions of the world have always known better.
Fortunately, I’ve “seen the light” now, too…pun intended!
So I wanted to do my small part to help set the record straight.
The fact is, the ancient genuine metaphysical traditions of the world that are still around to this day aren’t really out there bringing attention to themselves. Some aren’t meant to I suppose, and some others I guess just aren’t very good at.
But so long as they and their teachings remain hidden, hard-to-find, and exclusive, metaphysics will go on being perceived as a meaningless gray zone, fuzzy “pseudoscience”, pure evil, or nothing more than a circus act, or a cultish fringe for the weird, the narcissistic, and the gullible.
Granted, I am a little weird, now that I think about it…hmm…
But nevermind that!
Though I tremble and have to overcome a lot of fear and doubt to run this blog, and put up with some ridicule to put myself out here so publicly, I know I have been given perhaps the greatest gift and adventure life has to offer. I don’t want anyone to miss out on something this important if they were meant to take part…all because they got a skewed or biased impression of what it means to live life as a metaphysician.
Or simply couldn’t FIND one of these great, authentic mystery schools.
To me, that’s the saddest thought of all.
We are living in amazing times. Seriously, if you are alive today, you probably have no idea what a privilege has been given to you.
There has never been a better time to grow spiritually in the whole history of the world than right now.
So what I did myself, and what I recommend to everyone who asks me about this, is that if you sense that still small voice whispering for you to pursue the spiritual opportunities being put in front of you, seize those opportunities!
Then judge for yourself what they add to your life.
If you’re going in the right direction, the path you were meant to follow, it will change you for the better in every way. And it will bless every person around you.
Like the Good Book says, you will know it by its fruits.
On this blog, I will share with you explicitly the value metaphysics has added to my life. If one person reading these things enjoys a slightly better life experience from it, then it will have been worth it to me.
I am not a spiritual teacher (yet), but I am a long-time student of a truly great one.
As a modern mystery school student on the path of ascension, my approach to life is strongly guided by the knowledge & wisdom of the mystery tradition known as the Kingdom of Light Teachings, as taught by Barbara Y. Martin & Dimitri Moraitis of the Spiritual Arts Institute.
What I will share on this site is some of the information from these teachings, along with my personal experiences, opinions, and insights with striving to live by these teachings. And sometimes FAILING to live by these teachings and the outcome of those moments.
However, everything I share directly from the Kingdom of Light teachings here is also available in the four (soon to be five!) books Barbara & Dimitri have published for general public audiences to begin exploring these profound topics.
So if you enjoy what I write about and you’d like to learn more right away, I recommed these four books below as a great place to start…
Most especially, I hope to inspire others meant to follow the metaphysical path to find the courage & motivation to jump in and get started.
Or build on what they’ve already accomplished spiritually to climb even higher.
I am so happy to share here whatever I can to help others who are ready for the light to find their way out of the dark.
Thanks for reading this and checking out my blog.
