What Is New Age?

An age old phenomenon

chakrasYou have likely heard the expression "new age". But really its nothing new other than that many individuals are seeking to understand their world and become happier citizens. Every generation does this, children set out to become 'better' than their parents yet fall back into suffering the trials of life.

New Age Is

New Age is about taking conscious responsibility for your own life and not blaming others for their problems.

It’s about deciding to learn and grow into a more responsive human being.

It’s knowing that you don’t have to be right, except for yourself.

It’s seeing problems as lessons, perhaps in a long series of lives and lessons.

It’s not about belief,  it's about discovering the truth.

It’s changing the world by changing yourself, not in trying to change others.

It’s about understanding the universe by going inside oneself.

It’s learning that love doesn't have attachments.

It’s knowing oneself, generating a sweetness within to better know and love others.

It’s refraining from judgement, yet seeing all life as part of the same whole.

It’s about walking your own path rather than following any dogma.

It’s about honouring the rights of others to walk their own paths.

It’s about realizing that everything is now.

It’s about owning oneself rather than things.

It’s about focussing on the joy in life rather than pain.

It’s about expanding sensitivity to life.

It’s about people in all walks of life, from business persons to flower essence healers, psychologists to UFO investigators

New Age is not a religion with a hierarchy of priests and rituals, seeking converts, though some new ager's choose some ritual for self empowerment.

New Age is not about gloom and doom, though many point out the causes of suffering as they are concerned about ecology, the economy and other forces that affect our world.

New Age is not a movement based on guilt, anger, fear or hurt; it is a journey toward bliss and freedom.

New Age is not allegiance to any one master; it is about learning from many masters in the quest for liberation.

New Age is not a cult, it is a journey in consciousness.

New Age is not about humans doing, it is being human.
