The path of metaphysics, mysticism, and psychedelics are intersections that are essential to understanding to gain perspective on the inner world and the psychedelic pathway. Each of these is needed to truly know the other. Let us start with some basic definitions.

What is metaphysics?

Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being, knowing, substance, cause, identity, time, and space. Metaphysics is a type of study that uses broad concepts to help define reality and gain some understanding of it. Metaphysical studies seek to explain inherent or universal elements of reality which are not easily discovered or experienced in our everyday ordinary waking consciousness. This is why it is important to take time to enter non-ordinary states of consciousness where we can touch into this pathway.

Derived from the Greek meta ta physika (after the things of nature) referring to an idea, doctrine, or situated reality outside of human sense perception. In philosophical terminology, metaphysics refers to the study of what cannot be reached through objective studies of material reality.

  • Existence
  • Objects and their properties
  • Space and time
  • Cause and effect
  • Possibility
  • Existence
  • The relationship between mind and matter
  • Between substance and attribute
  • And between potentiality and actuality

In the book, Practical Metaphysics: A New Insight In Truth, author Eric Butterworth says, metaphysics literally means “beyond the science of nature.”
Academically, metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that studies the ultimate reality beyond the physical realm and generally asks these questions:

  • What is the nature of being?
  • What is the nature of the universe?
  • How do we know what we know?

Some meta-physicians may also ask:

  • What is the nature of the Inner Healer and humankind?
  • What is the relationship between Inner Healer and humankind?

The Inner Healer is the invisible life and intelligence underlying all physical things. And as the inner healing intelligence underlying all things, our Inner Healer can also be referred to as Divine Mind, Universal Mind, and Cosmic Consciousness. According to the book The Revealing Word, metaphysics is defined as “The systematic study of the science of being: that which transcends the physical.” Think about that for a minute, the science of being. What is the intelligence underlying all things? That is what metaphysics is looking at.

Metaphysics would look at the perception or revelation of the ‘unseen’ as being as real as the ‘seen.’ Metaphysics is the place where the unseen is real.

Author, Eric Butterworth goes on to describe how these may manifest in our lives by suggesting: “The personality/ego must surrender to the divine essence within and then awaken to its wisdom. That surrender is what allows the demonstration to flow through us.” He goes on to state, “We do not ‘demonstrate’ so much as we allow the ‘imprisoned splendor’ to escape.” So, it takes a surrender of what we have come to know as reality, and surrendering to a greater or larger reality that is connected to something we do not often touch in our daily waking consciousness. So, in this sense, we are all prophets, seers, sages, and saviors in the making as we are releasing our own imprisoned splendor and letting our light shine and therefore bringing the kingdom of light and Oneness to illuminate our world and the world around us. What this means is that we can have direct knowledge of the Divine right now. We have direct access to the awakening of the wisdom within us. We all can bring a little heaven on earth.
