Here’s some more questions from folks like you:
Member: “How can I quickly describe what metaphysics is when I’m talking to other folks?”
Dr. Kunath: “When people ask about metaphysics they are usually completely unfamiliar with New Thought or with any of the things we study and usually assume that everyone else is familiar with them. It is best not to confuse them with too much information., I say first “It is a branch of Philosophy that deals with the study of the non-physical as in the study of thought and its effects on each one of us.” That is usually enough for most people. If they are interested enough or understanding enough to want more information then I explain more. Keeping it simple and saying “we believe that our thoughts and feelings are creative and we create what we think about and what we believe. Therefore, we learn to think about what we want to have in our lives. We stop worrying and we stop complaining. As we begin to think about happy events our lives change for the better. If they want more than that, recommend a good book such as one by Emmet Fox, Joseph Murphy or another of your favorites.”
Member: “Having listened to Anne teach for several years now and having studied metaphysics for almost 30 years, I find that there seems to be a scooting away from the fundamentals of metaphysics. I know “The Secret” is the rage but, frankly, it’s like the new psych-o-babble and sales pitch. Since “The Secret” was released, there are even web-sites from people in the movie that tell you they have the missing link for you that was left out of “The Secret.” No wonder people are confused and think of New Thought as just old snake oil.”
Dr. Kunath: “The movie and book “The Secret” explaining the Law of Attraction as is being taught today leaves much to be desired. It does not take into consideration the beliefs that have been planted in us in the past. There are other laws such as the Law of Multiplication, the Law of Consciousness, The Law of Grace and others. (I’ll do those in another question) These laws interact and if your beliefs are contradictory, the good doesn’t come until you remove the contradiction. That is why we start new classes with denials. For example, if you were told as a child that you inherited your mother’s inability to solve math problems, you probably will struggle in your math and algebra classes.
The denials for that would be “I don’t choose to believe that math is difficult for me”. You may add an affirmation “I inherited Uncle Joe’s genius and I can do all math quickly, easily and accurately.” Your conscious mind has the ability to dissolve and/or correct our subconscious beliefs. It would be beneficial for you to listen to the Spiritual Law series we have on the membership site.”
Dr. Kunath has taught metaphysics (New Thought) for over 35 years to people just like you!
