Re: The New Age movement
That's a very good posting, Draken, and the sites are also good. As you had said, we should not leave the basics. There's plenty of truth and real wisdom in all the religious faiths....Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Taoism etc. But many ignorant people have distorted the real thing and repackaged it under the umbrella of "new age". Sometimes even real knowledge based on truth gets misclassified as "new age". And then this "new age" also seems to include dangerous occult practices.
The Bhagavad Gita classifies all forms of worship into 3 categories: Sattvic, Rajasic and Tamasic. The thumb rule is to follow Sattvic worship, and as long as a person does so, they will be safe and derive long-lasting good results. Rajasic worship can bring about a lot of grief in the end even though the initial results can be very gratifying. Tamasic worship is the worst form of worship and causes untold ruin for both the self and others.
All these spiritist occult practices designed to bring about the New World Order smell like Tamasic worship to me. It's most advisable to completely keep away from it. It may even look very appealing from outside but it's guaranteed that the results will NOT last long. Hence, the NWO will also NOT last long. The NWO leaders that cause untold misery to the people will have to eventually go through very severe retribution.
But it is still our duty to fight evil and only then the world will be saved.
