Q: Do I have to give up my religion to walk the metaphysical path?
A: The answer is a resounding no. You can most definitely continue your religious practice and embrace the metaphysical path. As a matter of fact, metaphysics can deepen your understanding and appreciation of the religion you may be practicing. Metaphysics in itself is not a religion. It is a spiritual school of learning. The ancients called these training centers mystery schools, because students in these schools were learning the mysteries of life as part of their quest for spiritual enlightenment. All true religions and metaphysical schools draw their inspiration from the same spiritual well, and we are all children of the same God. So the key is regardless of the spiritual practice you may embrace, it is your dedication and sincerity to living your life in the spirit of truth that you truly grow spiritually.
