What is New Age/New Thought?
New Age/New Thought are simply more steps in the evolutionary advancement of man's awareness of
who he is, and what his purpose is in the physical world. It is none organized
and an ongoing advanced stage of awareness.
The essence of life is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. The creator
is in and around all that is and is unconditional love.
There is no purpose to life other than the purpose you give it. If life did
have a purpose other than to be, it would then be conditional love.
The soul is the essence of
life that is in and around the body. It is the matrix in which the body moves.
The soul is not confined by the body. The soul is the individualized piece of
the creator that is manifested in ego or body in the physical world.
Metaphorically we are God's children. We are individualized pieces of the
whole. We are not children in the sense that you were born a child of your
parents. We are pieces of God with all the characteristics and attributes of the
whole, individualized as a soul in the ego (body). As souls or children of God
we are permanently connected at some level of consciousness.
New Age believers accept that there is a one conscousness that has created
us. This consciousness may be called and has been called many things; God,
Adonai, Allah, Elohim, Hare, Jehovah, Krishna, Lord, Kama, Vishnu, Yahwey to
name a few. New Age does not believe that God is an anthropomorphic entity, but
a mass of energy or consciousness without physical emotion or feelings. Because
humanity is focused in the physical world it is natural for us to project human
attributes to all things, including God.
God is all there is, so in this matter God is both and neither. Male and
Female genders are a fact of physical life only.
There is a Heaven and a Hell, but only in the minds of those that believe
there are. Heaven and Hell are simple metaphors for a condition of being part of
the whole or being separated from it. We as human beings are creating all
the circumstances of our existance, be are not victims of them. Whatever we
believe we will experience during life and after it, until we know longer
believe in the circumstances.
Death is both an ending to your present circumstances and the beginning of
your next ones. For a period of time you will experience what you have created
in your mind while you were alive. If it is experience of Heaven that you have
believed in or an experience of Hell, that is what you will create. The higher
your awareness at death, the higher will be your experience after death, until
you become aware of something else. You created the circumstances of your birth
before you were born, you also created the time, place and circumstances of your
death and the new life you will experience later in the next incarnation.
Karma is the law of cause and
effect. Whatever you cause you will also experience.
Some believe that whatever you cause in this lifetime you will experience at
some other time. If you have not experienced it in this lifetime you will have
built up Karma Debt and it will follow you into the next lifetimes until there
is a balance between what you have caused and what you have experienced.
Retribution fits in with Karma Debt or bad Karma. It is self inflicted and
not a punishment of God per se. New Agers believe that God is unconditional
love. Unconditional love, is unconditional freedom. Freedom to do anything that
you desire. Why would God give you unconditional freedom so that he could punish
you. God is almighty and powerful, it is insanity or vanity to believe that any
one of us could hurt God in anyway. If God is all there is, then there is
nothing that he lacks. God has given us the power to make the same mistakes over
and over again, until we have enough awareness to move away from what we are
doing that we or others think we should be punished for, this is by far the
greatest example of unconditional love. Punishments go with breaking conditions
and therefore does not fit into the New Age belief system.
There are no punishments or
rewards for living any kind of life, whether you believe it to be good or bad.
You are hear to experience life, not to learn lessons. If you feel you need to
be punished you will punish yourself. If you feel that you need to be rewarded,
that is what you will experience. The notion of good and bad, reward and
punishment is humanities way of controlling itself and keeping individuals in
check. Free will cannot carry with it a punishment or reward, that would be
interference and not unconditional love. Only mankind punishes and rewards, God
does not! If you feel that returning to the whole or getting back to God is a
reward, then that will happen the moment you become Godlike, in that respect you
would be rewarded.
The concept of good and bad is a human convention . Good more closely
be aligned with being rewarded and bad more towards being punished. Both terms
are poor words. More enlightened humans do not live within these conventions,
but have replaced the words with terms like, that which works for me and that
which does not. Neither one of these terms suggests punishment or reward. When
one does something that works well for them, the action is its own reward, and
is deserving of nothing else.
New Age is the best of the best. It is an add-on to what you already know to
be true. Truth changes, as does life. New Age celebrates humanities differences,
it does not try to assimilate. New Age could not exist without all the other
beliefs. It is relative to them and built upon them. It is another step along
the path to enlightenment, it is not definitive or absolute, it is as liquid as
the water that surrounds this planet.
New Age is not organized. New Age cannot be put into a box, because it is
always growing and changing. This makes it very difficult to describe New Age.
New Age is as individual as the solitary trip that you are on. It can be shared
with others, but never experienced. Setting conventions for New Age would
destroy it. It would simply become another religion. Those that are ready to
move further are attracted to others with the same thought and are drawn to
them. That is why you are reading this now. This is how our believe system is
spread. It is you that is seeking New Age, New Age does not seek you.
They will find you. Do not try to meet anyone. Let your words and your
actions be the symbols of your new belief and others will be attracted to you
automatically. If you lock yourself in the basement, no one will find you.
Demonstrate you new thoughts in public. Be careful not to go out and preach what
you have learned. Hang out your shingle and welcome all those that come to
Holistic health takes in the welfare of the whole body as well as mind and
spirit. When one treats holistically, the whole being is considered.
A holistic practitioner treats the whole body, mind and spirit at the same
time. Because all is connected, when one part suffers, the rest suffers as well.
When one part is cured the whole being is cured. If I am suffering with an
infection or ailment, I envision my whole being as being healthy and give no
notice to the ailment. I do not fight the suffering, but give energy to feeling
well or being whole.
Illness, albeit terminal or minor is an error in thought. All illness is
psychosomatic. For anything to manifest into phsyical reality there has to be a
thought behind it. You may or may not be aware of what that thought is. But it
is the root thought that is creating the illness. All illness can be reversed
once the root thought of it is discovered. This thought may be offensive for
someone that is suffering a terminal illness, but it simply means that they have
not yet discovered why they are sick. You must look inward for a cure. It can
never be cured, if you think it can't!
Manifesting is creating something from nothing. Manifesting starts with a
thought, it is then declared by the spoken word and then created into physical
reality. The steps are easy to understand, but in practice are some of the most
difficult things to actualize on a conscious level. Humanity manifests very well
at a subconscious level. Yet it is the same mind that says it can't be done,
that demonstrates his inability to create at will what he desires.
It is simply waisted energy to try and manifest something that you already
believe you cannot. If you are doing it to try and prove that you cannot do it,
you will not be disappointed. You cannot create matter, it already exists. In
manifesting, all probabilities already exist at the same time in space. You
simple choose from and endless list of possibilities to create what you desire.
You cannot try to make anything happen, that will be your experience, one of
trying. This is why humanity manifests very well at a subconscious level,
he/she doesn't have the conscious mind getting in the way. The fastest way to
get what you want is to know that you already have it. Wanting simply gives back
the experience of wanting. Prayers, affirmations and meditation are physical
ways to connect with the power that is in all of us to create what we desire.
Praying is a physical tool that you can use to create what you desire in your
life. The most effective prayers, are prayers of gratitude. Gratitude is
recognition that you already have what you desire and the fastest way to get
what you desire is to know that you already have it.
Meditation is a physical way of communicating with the spirit that is in all
of us. One should never meditate to recieve something, because this distracts us
from our purpose. By communing with spirit, it will already know what you desire
and create it. The ego commands, the spirit obeys. It is exactly because of this
arrangement that humanity most often finds itself off its path. When the ego
moves in harmony with what the spirit desires, things move easily, without
effort. While on the phsycial plain the ego controls the body and is in charge
of it's physical manifestations. Meditation brings us closer to spirit.
You don't have to do anything. Tithing is simply a symbol of where you place
the most importance for you. In the phsyical life we have got it all backwards.
The people that can do us the most good are paid embarrassing low salaries, will
entertainment is seen as our ultimate priority. Educators, health workers,
teachers and others live near poverty levels, while sports figures, actors and
actresses are paid outragious wages. There are many ways to support what you
belief in. Paying hundreds of dollars to sit in the bleachers of a stadium says
something of where you place your priorities.
Refer back to #20 (Can terminal illness be cured?)
Life was never meant to be a struggle. It may have become a struggle because
of free will. When an ego moves out of harmony with what the soul wishes to
experience in the physical life, it becomes difficult. It is because you have
freedom, that you choose to wonder off your path and experience other things.
Once you are back in tune with spirit, your life takes a turn for the better and
moves more easily. It is always appropriate considering your model of the world
and how you see yourself in relationship to it, that you are in the right time
and place for you to experience what you desire. You life is perfect the way it
is. If you do not like it, simply change your thoughts about it, and your life
will follow suite.
These people have learned how to manifest effectively. They know that they
can have anything that they want, and that thought is manifested into physical
reality. God had given mankind absolute freedom, the system is in place for
anyone of us to create what we desire, just by thinking about it. If God had a
will as such, it would be for his individualized parts to experience what they
desire. In this he has no emotion or power over mans will. Good or bad does not
exist in the realm of the absolute. So called bad people can manifest better
because they are not confined by the same conventions as good people. A bad
person knows that he/she can have whatever he wants, simply by taking it and not
getting caught. The good person has to go through a more complex and restricted
thought process, that gets in her way. There is equal opportunity in
manifesting, it has nothing to do with your thoughts about someone being good or
bad. The bad guy simply knows that he can have what he wants, the good guy does
