Dr. of Metaphysics Dissertation
Rev. Jacob Hold
The Dr. of Metaphysics course was a very eye-opening
experience. It brought a lot of self recognition as
well as the surroundings of everyday life.
When one comes to realize the miracles of everyday
life, that is the day that their three minds become
aligned, their way of thinking is through their higher
guidance not their ego. They come to understand that
they have a soul and a higher purpose in life.
When you realize you have a soul, you come to realize
it's purpose is to learn while here on Earth. Not only
is it its need to learn but also to teach others that
go astray from their higher purpose.
The way to teach others is through everyday contact
with others. The actions that are done to others, the
words spoken, the thoughts, they all need to be
examined for us to learn from. The answer to all those
actions is through forgiveness. Only through

prayer love is recieved, and through miracless love is
expressed". That makes prayer the greatest gift with
which God blessed His son at his creation.
If you truly pray for something from your heart, you
are asking for intervention at the level of cause.
When we do this we may be afraid of receiving the very
result we are seeking. What we must truely pray for is
not always given an answer we seek, if we were then
God would be giving us more than we could handle and
God does not burden his children. That is why guidance
is always given in the form of everyday interactions.
Signs of an answer are given all around you, when you
lest expect them. We just need to be receptive and
look with open hearts to receive them.
