Welcome to part two of our spiritual journey. In our previous article, we discussed the differences between spiritual and material science. Material science lives on the plane of seeing is believing while spiritual science is about believing and then I see it. In today's article, we unwrap spiritual science just a little more as we build our foundation for this worthy journey
“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ —a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” -Albert Einstein
Are you interested in spiritual science? If so we are going to deal with the process where the knowledge of the soul is being derived from the systematic study of things that our intuition, perceives. It has no scripture or doctrine and studies on all belief system and religions, and it takes the best things that each of them has to offer.
Spiritual science is a very interesting aspect, as it includes the constant study of one's words, deeds, and thoughts, as well as a meditation practice. It is a philosophical way of living but in a much-disciplined manner. It teaches that each individual is the master of their destiny.
Many men are becoming interested in this science. This is because the study is an open-ended thought system, which continually develops as we (men) continually evolve and expand our consciousness. This science teaches further that any individual is a divine being and as such is the master of his destiny.
Spiritual science seeks to hold all individuals responsible for their deeds, words, and thoughts. Their success, peace of mind, and harmony are determined by the way they connect with the Divine Being within. The goal of this study is to encourage individuals not what to think but how to think, nor what they believe but why they believe in the things they do.
Spiritual science teaches that being a metaphysical expression, the universal truths are revealed in all religions in the world. All religions in the world are acknowledged in this science and have provided their value to this world. It doesn't tell us that for us to be enlightened spiritually, there is a particular path to take.
On the contrary, it explains that all are on one or another path, but each will lead us in the same direction, and in the end self-realization as well as God-realization will be achieved. The men who are interested in this science are those that have the sincere and genuine angst over learning the art of truly conscious living.
It teaches that on the philosophy aspect, the thinking of people towards the nature of this universe can be determined by our relationship with it. Furthermore, humans are capable of expressing their unlimited potential if they understand themselves as being the creations as well as co-creators of this universe. Philosophy has seven branches: metaphysics, logic, ethics, psychology, epistemology, esthetics, and theurgy.
On the part of science, practitioners have a systematic approach when applying spiritual knowledge over their daily lives with individually tailored practices. It is in this discipline where the human condition and laws of nature are given more awareness and understanding. Therefore, the goal of these practitioners encompasses services to all forms of life including humanity.
Those who engage themselves in the practice and study of spiritual science are those that lead a life with selfless service. By their actions they “do and teach” the work of God and by example surrender to that ultimate goal.
