"If a tad New Age for me" Spoken like a true ignoramus, my friend. I say this not as an insult, but as fact. If you were studied on the matter, instead of throwing labels like confetti as a frat party, you would realize that everything "New Age" is only believed to be so because the Church stomped it all out. EVERY SINGLE PIECE of new age whatever that you encounter is millenia old. MILLENIA. No exagerration. New age? It's only because we've finally begun to open our eyes again, that we see it. A lot of this "New Age" stuff was actually practicied during the birth of the Freemasons. All of that alchemy and symbology? Aspects of nature representing the potential of man.
If a man becomes so frightened by the world that he closes his eyes and wanders away, then finds an old cave and learns to overecome his fear, and slowly opens his eyes... the first thing he sees is a crystal that shows him wonders, is that new? Or is it something very, very old that he just rediscovered?
