The subject of religion has as many beliefs, feelings, and perceptions around it as there are people on the
planet. In a way, everyone has their own religion, even if they subscribe to a religion that many others do. This is
because everyone has their own interpretations of the religion they subscribe to. If you were to ask followers of
any given religion what their beliefs are, or what parts of the religion they agree or disagree with, they would all
say something a little different from each other. Many people adopt the things they like in a particular religion,
and ignore the things they donʹt believe in, even if this is done on an unconscious level.
Metaphysics is emerging as a new religion, or shall we say it is a very old religion that has been revived in
the modern day. Metaphysics is a combination of many religions, old and new alike, particularly those that have
Eastern philosophies, magical practices like alchemy, nature worship, and the belief that thought and emotion
affects matter. You will learn much about this new “religion” called Metaphysics in your studies here at UMS,
but this course in particular looks at other religions of the world in order to give you a solid background in
understanding the beliefs of others in various belief systems. This could be useful in your work as a practitioner,
healer, or teacher. Metaphysics tries to transcend the idea of religion, however, by all encompassing ideas like
letting go of “written in stone” beliefs that never change, realizing the self as a “part of God,” and seeing all
beings as equals in spirit.
