Let's get started.
I'm a "New Ager". So, if you so choose to continue browsing ATS and disregard what I have to say, do so but remember, I'm trying to explain to you a
culture which you may have negative, indifferent, or positive feelings towards. I'm trying to explain it to the best of my intellectual
The term "New Age" is an interesting concept to me, because I find that it's not a very "new" point of view. A lot of what we feel and believe is in
synchronicity with Buddhism. People on the path to enlightenment that is the "New Age" movement are truly looking for unity... they are looking to
understand, they look to embrace humility, they look to be understanding and wish to provide care to those around them - and not out of personal gain
might I add.
I see the term "New Age" non-sense tossed around quite a bit around here, and it's very disturbing to me. I also know that many people are very astute
in how they portray themselves here on ATS. They are very, very concerned about what it is they think and believe that those around them should accept
what they have to say as an absolute.
That in itself should show you the difference between the "New Age" movement, and those who don't seek out the "New Age" movement.
Let me clarify.
The "New Age" movement has absolutely no
doctrine. The "New Age" belief you speak of is the pursuit of personal understanding, knowing
why you're here, and doing what you see is right. It is a path of enlightenment, it is a path of peace and expansion.
It is the pursuit of learning what is you wish to learn. There is no law. There is no right or wrong way to do it.
All I can tell you is that the "New Age" movement is not "New Age" at all. It is ancient, if anything. It is before we developed language. It is
knowing who you are and who those around you are. It crosses the barrier of language, science, technology, religion and the very laws of the
, because the "New Age" movement is the universe itself. It is the omnipresent, ever existing consistent in the universe, it is the
Also... we don't think 2012 is the messiah of the "New Age Movement", we don't know
that there's going to be some massive awakening, we don't
there's going to be 3 days of darkness and we don't know, and sure as the hell
don't hope the world is coming to an end.
Unity is the answer. It is present in many of the animals here on this small planet. We are not an exception, it is that some have deterred our
reality, and separated us from ourselves, and those around us.
May peace be with you.
