Spirituality, Occult & Metaphysics – Gullibility or Awareness?

Some people may be too quick to accept metaphysical

theories and methods without much consideration, but

unfortunately, blind acceptance doesn’t usually lead to

complete comprehension.

Most people who advocate various metaphysical concepts

don’t automatically accept new theories. For many, having

faith in an idea that can’t be proved or disproved such as

reincarnation involves questioning, considering various

explanations, applying the idea to their own life and the

lives of others, and looking at other possibilities. Only then,

after finding no good reason to discount it, will they accept it.

With an unbiased attitude, diligent research, and intuitive

awareness, truth is uncovered.

An example is the past life regression therapist who does

many regressions, careful to remain objective, while compiling

impressions and details about his clients’ past lives. Many,

many cases offer explicit, verifiable details about distant, even

ancient cultures such as types of societal standards like common

marriage arrangement particulars, and even specific addresses

and descriptions of particular houses and places of

employment. Do these things prove reincarnation? No. Does

it prove reincarnation when the hypnotized client begins

speaking in a foreign language, one previously completely

unknown (in this life)? Again, no, but it sure lends a lot of

corroboration for supportive theories of reincarnation.

Ironically, it’s frequently those who condemn the belief in

metaphysical concepts who display gullibility, believing

misinformation (such as that of the organized religion they

follow) all too readily without bothering to do their own

objective research.

More and more people are opening up to alternative spiritual

theories. It’s not too surprising that books like “The Da Vinci

Code,” by Dan Brown are best-sellers today.

That which is looked upon by one generation as the apex of

human knowledge is often considered an absurdity by the next,

and that which is regarded as a superstition in one century,

may form the basis of science for the following one.
