Affirmative Prayer is a form of prayer that is focused on a positive outcome rather than a negative situation
The affirmative prayer as an element of the metaphysical healing that is called the “mind-cure” right thinking has a healing effect.
Metaphysics is a traditional branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world that encompasses it. Traditionally, metaphysics:
- Ultimately, what is there?
- What is it like?
A person who studies metaphysics is called a metaphysician. The metaphysician attempts to clarify the fundamental notions by which people understand the world, e.g., existence, objects and their properties, space and time, cause and effect, and possibility. A central branch of metaphysics is ontology, the investigation into the basic categories of being and how they relate to each other. Another central branch of metaphysics is cosmology, the study of the origin, fundamental structure, nature, and dynamics of the universe. Some include epistemology as another central focus of metaphysics, but others question this.
Prior to the modern history of science, scientific questions were addressed as a part of metaphysics known as natural philosophy. Originally, the term “science” (Latin scientia) simply meant “knowledge”. The scientific method, however, transformed natural philosophy into an empirical activity deriving from experiment unlike the rest of philosophy. By the end of the 18th century, it had begun to be called “science” to distinguish it from philosophy. Thereafter, metaphysics denoted philosophical enquiry of a non-empirical character into the nature of existence. Some philosophers of science, such as the neo-positivists, say that natural science rejects the study of metaphysics, while other philosophers of science strongly disagree.
EMMI RTT Ministry applying philosophy in the search for the Truth:
The Ancient Greek word philosophia was probably coined by Pythagoras and literally means “love of wisdom” or “friend of wisdom”. Philosophy has been divided into many
sub-fields. It has been divided chronologically; by topic: epistemology, logic, metaphysics, ethics, and aesthetics and by style: analytic philosophy.
As a method, philosophy is often distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its questioning, critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. As a noun, the term “philosophy” can refer to any body of knowledge. Historically, these bodies of knowledge were commonly divided into natural philosophy, moral philosophy, and metaphysical philosophy. In casual speech, the term can refer to any of the most basic beliefs, concepts, and attitudes of an individual or group.
EMMI suggest skepticism as beginning position, the starting point of studying, then it is transform with questions the possibility of completely justifying any truth. The argument may be transform when by reason in order to completely prove any statement, its justification itself needs to be supported by another justification. This chain can do three possible options, all of which are unsatisfactory according to the Münchhausen trilemma.
- One option is infinitism, where this chain of justification can go on forever.
- Another option is foundationalism, where the chain of justifications eventually relies on basic beliefs or axioms that are left unproven.
- The last option, such as in coherentism, is making the chain circular so that a statement is included in its own chain of justification
