A Statement of General Policy
derived from neometaphysics and sustained from 1944 until the present
Society of Metaphysicians is dedicated to the task of bringing fundamental
knowledge and common activity to all people, no matter what their state
or understanding. That is; the Society places unity of thought and deed
above all other things.
The Society is concerned with the Infinite potentiality in Humanity
and therefore with Humanity's union with the Highest. There is no limit
envisaged to the development and joy before us all.
No single phase of human activity is neglected and no service considered
negligible.... every effort is made to increase functional harmony amidst
human affairs in all ways immediately possible to us.
Esoteric experience, Spiritual knowledge, psychic study and development,
mental energy studies and other allied matters are all essential aspects
of the Society's Policy. We seek to increase the consciousness in the
certain understanding that this must also increase harmony in all ways.
Our power to act is no greater than the present Unity we represent;
thus, so far as our power extends, then so do we assess the priorities
in those tasks before us and act accordingly. That is: we are limited
by our immediate resources and this limitation determines which matters
we may influence and the extent to which we may act at any time.
We seek to promote those researches leading to knowledge and power consistent
with higher harmony and peace. We seek to remove barriers to good thought,
experience and action in all walks of life. We promote research into
human affairs, mental and allied subjects, extra dimensional states,
radiesthesia, human and other aura studies, interplanetary and allied
matters and all the 'Borderline' sciences.
Similarly, we seek to provide practical facilities, so that sincere
desire may find a means to blossom and contribute to world harmony as
well as to personal welfare, both spiritually and materially. We seek
to provide administrative and research equipment, courses of instruction,
libraries and all essential material assets.
But in addition, we work to establish, to make stable and to develop
communities and other group-homes wherein sincere people may live and
grow into harmony and spiritual power which can re-manifest through
our many departments. Each community being adjusted to the psychological
needs of its members and all such groups aiming at one final unity of
thought and deed. That is - we seek to establish living places, homes,
workshops and all essentials for gaining ideal way of life.
We recognise the essential need of any group of people to gain assets
which can be transmuted into social unity of the highest order. Thus;
we support the policy of providing small businesses, the incomes from
which are returned to one central fund to promote spiritual development
in all spheres of activity, with a reasonable proportion being paid
to members of such spiritually oriented businesses. We have evolved
a unified business system which we call 'social business'.
Neometaphysics reveals the possibility of impending world cataclysm
and through that disaster the dawn of a new era. Atomic radiation and
environmental damage pose very real threats to our world. It is only
through the working out of human and environmental problems by the application of fundamental knowledge (Neometaphysics)
that we can bring about a real new dawn in human and world affairs.
We permit no limits of thought to restrict the Society's infinite policy
and automatically include All people as Brothers and Sisters, So far
as they respond to that understanding, then so far we may offer aid
and accept it in accordance with the findings of Fundamental Law. Universal
Membership is an essential quality of the Society.
All policy and action is concisely calculated on a proven system of
scientific probability which refers all matters to the common basis
of manifest Law: that which is the full Expression of Divine Intelligence
.There can be no error in policy or deed of a fundamental or truly hurtful
outstanding policy has remained, in basis, firm since 1944, and in the
intervening years its practical application has revealed many useful and
important ways and means of practical attainment. A scale of values appears
whereupon the problems of finance, labour, direction of our energies,
the priorities of various practical tasks, the amount of time and money
that we may put towards our idealistic appeals, are all properly evaluated.
Therefore, upon the empirical basis derived by the past fifty years of
dedicated work, we now have a firm practical policy for the physical life,
as well as for the more esoteric life. Neither contradicts the other.
There is opportunity for those who wish to apply themselves in an intensely
practical way as well as for those concerned purely with the 'abstractions'.
as the new metaphysics is the foundation for all the Society's policies
and works, and also provides accurate guidance and knowledge for all
in every field of human endeavour, it is self-evident that one of the
Society's priorities is to present neometaphysics and to make it accessible,
to its members. This has been established by five text books, namely,
three volumes of the CRANWELL LECTURES, the OUTLINE of the CONCEPTS
and PRINCIPLES of the NEW METAPHYSICS, a useful LAYMAN'S GUIDE and of extreme importance because of their simple step by step presentation, THE LAYMAN'S LESSONS.
The majority of people seeking some additional form of enlightenment
and guidance in life do not have the discipline of technical achievement,
most being guided by intuition and common sense. As a consequence, few
can make progress when studying some step-by-step technical work. The
society recognises the validity of both impartial intuitive perception
and that of the scientific method. It is engaged in mystical and esoteric
studies, and seeks to bridge the "gap" between these two ways
of knowing. In "bridging the gap" , we publish many articles
on neometaphysical application in human affairs. We have prepared greatly
simplified instruction lessons, which will make the road ahead much easier
for the lay person.
