Re: About new agers and so on...
But seriously, just for the 2012 craziness, I'm really allergic to new-age. It looks like no new-ager has the cojones to say it's vast BS. They all quote each others, without questioning anything.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1051099


I understand but there is truth in there. Don't let the morons keep you down. I have studied many things....philospphy, logic, EST, Scientology, Christianity, just to name a few...and found peices of truth in all of it. I really think that truth is subjective. What are you ready to hear? What are you ready to experience?

I studied these things too for 15 years. I had many mystical and psychic experiences. But I also studied sciences, psychology, history, theology, etc... I know what I'm talking about, thanks :)

Religions don't dismiss these experiences, Christian mysticism for example is one of many religious mysticism.

But they also teach about the traps associated to them.

New-age NEVER talks about those traps; delusions and self-aggrandizing fantasies.

New-age take this subject not very seriously.

That's not true at all...I have studied meditation and was warned plenty by a teacher about the traps in that...which I won't go into detail on...and I also find many other so called new age philosophies now days are also teaching some warnings...but just because some people choose to not listen doesn't make that teaching invaluable.

Those were good teachers.

Unfortunately, most if not all websites about new-age, which are where 90% of the self-called new-agers get their info from, don't warn people about all the deception.

You just have to read the posts of the new-agers on GLP to know I'm right.

Also, to be labelled "new-age" it must be about the new-age of aquarius. Otherwise it's mainly old spiritual teachings, like yoga, meditation, prayer, astral projection, with a new name.

What do you think about that "age of aquarius"? When is it supposed to begin?

I like the way you put that. It isn't "new age" or "religion" or any ideology or system of belief. It's the intention behind it. It's the intent of the one who chooses it. Each one of us must make our own way in life and make our own choices. Let us do it with open eyes.

i'll put it simple. Why can't we all just get along.

caution facts ahead that might upset some people. we are going into a new age.

yes the earth moves through space and we see space in a different view every night, that is simple facts. but saying something is going to happen is not fact, it's a guess. maybe something will maybe something won't. i'm hoping that something does. like a burst of energy that wakes everyone up and shows them we are all in this together and to stop all this stupid hate.

It's true, but educated "new-agers" should also do the self-examination of their movement, and dare to speak out their truth more often when others start abusing or spreading manipulative or deceptive ideas. Religious people are expected to do the same, so it's only normal to hope the new-age community will start the work of separating the grain from the chaff. The problem is that usually they have a tendency to say "we can't deny someone an opinion or theory" because new-age is a syncretic movement.

I disagree. Especially if the theory is clearly manipulative or dangerous.
