New Age is a generic term which covers a multitude of spiritual ideas and practices, marked by appearing "new" or contemporary in content, form or style and is a term that is not comonly used by the people who are involved in it themselves.

The New Age movement is a social and spiritual movement that seeks "Universal Truth" and the attainment of the highest individual human potential. It includes aspects of Occultism, astrology, esotericism, metaphysics, alternative medicine, music, collectivism, sustainability, and nature.

The New Age movement includes elements of older spiritual and religious traditions ranging from atheism and monotheism through classical pantheism, naturalistic pantheism, and panentheism to polytheism combined with science and Gaia philosophy: particularly archaeoastronomy, astronomy, ecology, environmentalism, the Gaia hypothesis, psychology, and physics.

It can include Yoga, meditation, astrology, hypnosis, tarot card reading, channeling and the use of crystals for healing and inner harmony.

It really is a bit of a melting pot. Inspiration is usually gained from major world religions: Buddhism, Chinese folk religion, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism; with particularly strong influences from East Asian religions, Gnosticism, Jainism, Neopaganism, New Thought, Spiritualism, Theosophy, Universalism, and Western esotericism.

New Agers are usually pretty accepting of all faiths and opinions, as long as your opinion or faith isn't that of Biblical Christianity and the Savior Jesus Christ.


Is Truth Really Relative?

"As a yoga teacher, I taught that all world religions were just different paths to the same God. I firmly believed that part of walking in the “True Light” involved accepting the monistic view that ‘All is One.’ However, I could not hide my eyes, nor my heart, from the evident contradictions that kept rising to the surface of my worldview. The more I studied, the more I wondered, “Was I trying to mix oil and water?” (These two liquids, when vigorously shaken, seem to blend, but within a few moments they always separate. Philosophically, was I doing the same thing: ‘forcing’ a merging of all religions, which given to themselves would automatically separate?)"

I have to wonder why Gayle Frances has labelled New Age as a demonic cancer. There are no devil worshippers in New Age.
Gayle's words are that of a born again christian with a dogmatic view of Christianity. I wonder if she has ever studied any New Age religions. New Age is based on a lot of the new information about the nature of the divine mainly through such phenomenon as Near Death Experiences and meditation. We find that 98% of those returning from an NDE not only believe in God but have passed to what is called the Gnosis, the knowing, an absolute and unwavering certainty of Gods existence. They have passed from belief and faith to certainty. This compares with 68% who only believe in God in the general population. You cannot say that about any religion. So be careful when you condemn and make sweeping statements about a group you know very little about.

New Age is a demonic cancer that is spreading; everything connected to it is rotten to the core.

We are not alone. There is something out there bigger than ourselves. Where will you go after you die? What do you believe and why do you believe it? What is the point of having a mind if you never change it? Here's a surprisingly unsurprising statistic: Everyone dies sooner or later; there is no escaping it and you will be dead for longer than you are alive. This suggests that eternity might be worth more than a passing thought.

Are you ready for the inevitable? There is no need to be fearful of that inevitable moment, so long as you are prepared and as long as you are not taking comfort in something that sounds nice but is really just positive but wishful thinking. Make your life journey count, consider your eternal destination. Just believing in a lie wont make it truth, no matter how much you want it or how appealing that lie is. It is better to know the truth than to live in the delusion of a lie. No one likes being deceived, but in a world of political correctness, acceptance and anything goes, it is easy to side-step the truth of reality. What REALLY is true?

Can we just make up our own truth and say "well that is true for you, but my truth is something else"? Surely we can't all be right, especially when there are so many contradictory beliefs and top world religions out there.

Ranjan kumar Das’ Story From Here to Eternity

As a young boy I thirsted for money and power. This was not available through my family. My parents were middle-class Hindu Brahmins. Traditional ceremonies, functions and pujas were often going on in my house. This strongly influenced my thinking. We were orthodox and practicing Brahmins. I liked parts of all this, other parts I did not; particularly our lack of respect for the lower caste people. Read More.

Spiritual Quote

‘In the midst of Gurudom there stands a figure. He is active all around the world and commands a following far greater than all the other gurus put together. His devotees claim that he is always present with them personally. He guides, protects and comforts them like a friend and rules over them like a king (Maharaj). They claim that they can communicate with him whenever they wish, wherever they may be. Though living in an invisible transcendental dimension he is literally drawing thousands of devotees each day to himself. At times he meets ‘visibly’ with his devotees, though generally he meets with them spiritually. Yet whenever a person has an encounter with him, he or she is transformed into a new creation.’ -Vishal Mangalwadi
