UNDERSTANDING THE METAPHYSICAL SELF
To understand the Metaphysical, one must develop both the prophet and the scientist within each one of us. It is necessary to merge the soul’s vision and practical action. This can be done by clearing the mind through daily meditation and positive affirmations. Meditation is good for the body, mind and spirit.
Many philosophers have puzzled over questions such as whether a thought has weight or what the size of the mind is. One simple way to answer to these questions is to suppose that the mind is somehow radically distinct from the body: that there is a dichotomy between the two. According to Aristotle, every animate being is a living thing which can move itself only because it has a soul. Animals and plants, along with human beings, are more like each other than any of them are like any inanimate object, since each of them has a soul.
Even the imagination, according to Aristotle, involves the operation of the common sense without stimulation by the sensory organs of the body. Hence, although all knowledge must begin with information acquired through the senses, its results are achieved by rational means.
There is much to contemplate on this subject. We at www.secretserendipity.com are going to try meditation and see if it becomes clear.
