What is Metaphysics?
“My definition of metaphysics would be the search for absolute reality. The search for: Who am I? What am I? Where have I been? Where am I going? What is the relationship of man, mind and the Universe? If you can answer those questions, you can find your place in life. If you can’t, then it doesn’t matter, you’re just a wanderer.”
—Dr. Paul Leon Masters
- Metaphysics acknowledges and respects the beauty in ALL of God’s Creation.
- Metaphysics is religion without dogma.
- Metaphysics does not explore religious beliefs and laws created by man, but rather, it explores the immutable laws of nature, set by The Creator, God/Universal Presence, in the creation of the Universe.
- Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy that studies the ultimate nature of existence, reality, and experience without being bound to any one theological doctrine or dogma.
- Metaphysics includes all religions but transcends them all.
- Metaphysics is the study of ultimate cause in the Universe.
- Metaphysics is the only science capable of inquiring beyond physical and human science.
Metaphysical Questions and Answers from Founder Dr. Paul Leon Masters
Higher Consciousness Meditation by Dr. Paul Leon Masters
For many years, Dr. Paul Leon Masters taught students the practice of higher consciousness and mystical meditation in his classes. Being divinely guided, he brought forth many new and innovative techniques and practices of meditation. We invite you to listen to a 6-minute meditation where Dr. Masters gently guides you from outer sense perception to inner sense perception and leads you into a state of higher consciousness. It is here, at the innermost center of your mind, where you become aware of the beyond that lies within. It is here, where your soul is one with the Presence of God that you experience your consciousness as infinite in its existence.
What is Higher Consciousness Meditation?
In everyday life, every physical perception has other vibratory levels that are usually unperceived by your physical senses. There are vibrational frequency energies on a psychic, ethereal, astral, mental, and mystical level. With this Higher Consciousness Meditation, in Dr. Masters’ voice, there are usually undetected frequencies of high spiritual energies transmitted to corresponding energy frequencies in your own higher levels of mind and awareness, stimulating them into activity.
The higher vibrational frequencies in Dr. Masters’ voice come as the result of years of going into the higher levels of his consciousness during meditation, in which he has personally experienced practically all states of meditative consciousness, which you may have heard or read about in various schools of thought, such as Yoga, Alchemy, Theosophy, Self-Realization, Vedanta, Religious Science, Unity, and Mysticism.
We Award All Inclusive Scholarships
It gives us great pleasure to say we have not raised our tuition in nearly two decades.
It is our intention to award prospective students an equal and affordable opportunity to participate in metaphysical studies and a higher consciousness education. Currently, scholarships are available to all enrolling students, making it easily affordable to study and earn your degree up to a doctoral specialization.
Scholarships enable you to enroll for as little as $90 down and only $25 monthly for 48 months for a total tuition of $1,290, or for as little as $990 for prepayment in full, saving an additional $300.
A scholarship will save you 80% off the total tuition cost and funding is made possible from generous alumni members, who have benefited from a scholarship and intend to pass their gift forward. The scholarship fund is reviewed for availability every two weeks.
