How people think about spiritual science
When we hear ‘spiritual’, we might cringe with thoughts of fantasies and magical fairy tales.
We might think of New Age and conspiracies with some woo woo magic. For spiritual science, some are horrifically offended in having spirituality together with science.
Now another name for spiritual science is esoteric or occult science. This brings up the idea of evil, Satanism, witches, etc. You might bring spells, rituals, and potions into the mix. But this is further from the truth.
The Hidden Truth
Spiritual science are neither of those. Esoteric and Occult means hidden. It is the origin of science and religion. It is hidden knowledge of the universe.
What is Spiritual Science?
While some modern scientists dogmatically reject spiritual science under unconscious critics, spiritual science takes an unbiased approach to understanding true reality. Spiritual science…
- Uses the soul as an instrument to conduct research
- Follows a different approach than the conventional scientific method
- Involves having a balance and level-headed judgment in our conclusion
- Get their facts from within
- “proof” is by experience
The root of spiritual science is that there is a hidden world – spiritual (astral) world – and that we can come to understand them by unlocking our dormant human capacities, from within.
8 Myths of Spiritual Science
Most people meet spiritual science or spirituality with suspicion and discerning eyes. Here are 8 myths of spiritual science:
- It’s not Real Science
If you define ‘Science’ as strictly from the scientific method, our rational mind, or by our limited senses, then of course “spiritual science” is not science.
But it is “scientific” under a different way. It does have a process of experimentation and observation but without relying on theories, skepticism, and the ego.
- It can’t be proven (anyone can say something and be it true)
Without the ego, spiritual science takes an unbiased attitude and is not limited by our unconscious biases.
It can’t be proven because being unbiased means that it shouldn’t be presented to “persuade” someone of another’s bias.
The person will have to confirm with their reality if it’s real or not – this is where having balanced judgment comes in.
- It’s not fact
Spiritual science can be understood without using our senses and tools from “nature”. Unlike modern science, you don’t read or see something to know something is fact. An irrefutable argument doesn’t mean that its actually truth.
We experience the fact and come to the results ourselves because we are the instrument of research.
- It’s only religious fanatics and a myth
The battle between Science and Religion is based on proof. Some scientists felt that because they can’t perceive something, it doesn’t exist. Others say that it’s just human behaviors to create myths.
The wise person recognizes that their inability to see something doesn’t prove it doesn’t exist. It just means that they’re not in the position to prove it.
- It’s for people who are escaping “reality” and seeking for fantasies
It’s very possible for people to deceive themselves into thinking that they know everything that can possibly exist. As long as we deceive ourselves, we will continue to escape “reality”.
But spiritual science is engaging reality with balance and healthy judgment.
If we immerse ourselves in the spiritual aspects of life, we will be fully convinced that what we believe is absolute truth and is the only way.
We’ll be overwhelmed by the power of suggestion and lose ourselves in the process.
As long as we don’t indulge completely into our quest or become too weak and fall out, spiritual science can’t turn a person into a dreamer or alienate them from the world.
- It’s just a bunch of woo woo magic
Because spiritual science presents new concepts and ideas within our reach that we did not have before, we need new ways of “understanding” them.
It will look like some woo woo magic unless you experience its method and how it works.
- There’s no such thing as the spiritual world
Some science enthusiasts say that our senses and our rational mind is all we need to know everything in the world.
But how can people pass judgment on something they know nothing of? That’s why it’s important to have unbiased thinking and not make statements of things we don’t know.
- It’s only subjective, not objective
I actually agree with this. It’s presumptuous to think we all share the same facts of perception and that everyone wants the same thing.
Not everyone wants knowledge, strength, happiness or even enlightenment. Spiritual science doesn’t speak in universal certainty because in this uncertain world, nothing is really that certain.
True spiritual scientific insight arrive their conclusions from a higher standpoint, a birds-eye view.
Not everyone can become a balanced soul and be an instrument of research at the same time.
While modern science only recognizes what can be perceived and measured, it can never be complete without the existence of the soul.
