Entering a Sober New Age

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Here’s a teaching I’ve heard posited by some in the new age family: The problems, issues, and relationship challenges in life are direct reflections of me. Or in other words: the drama on the outside reflects some ‘I caused it’ drama on the inside of me. I’ve beaten myself up enough over the years asking… “Why did I create that!?” I didn’t. We do co-create, but it is through our response to what is before us.

Here’s another new age teaching that rings true to me: The problems and issues in life are part of the collective consciousness that we are born into, to be a part of, to respond to, and evolve within: it’s the ‘story’ that serves as the framework for our evolutionary journey. In other words, free will within the ‘ever beginning’ story.

As we go within to uncover who we are, we begin to see the value of honesty and respect in that both change the way we feel inside – we enjoy a cleaner feel (vibration). From there we begin to practice truth, which means we find a way to tell the truth and keep our word even when we’d rather not. We also begin to practice love by finding a way to respond from the heart: listening, respecting, perceiving… even when it is difficult. This is how we create a world that reflects us: through the elixir of truth and love – in practice.

The New Age Movement is today’s subject. For me, the term New Age covers a very wide spectrum of thought related to the life of the spirit and understanding and experiencing what God truly is. It appealed to me in the ‘70s: the liberate myself aspect.

Now I see New Age as having expanded a lot, stretching all the way from the shallow side of fashion and specialness to a very advanced multi-dimensional knowledge and experience of Divinity within and of Creation itself. Quite a stretch!

Perhaps I should clarify that I’ve been a Sober new ager since the ’70s. (Thanks to Soren for the term “Sober new ager’.) Spiritual life is not something we dabble in; not a ‘lifestyle’. It is natural, and it seems to always have been: the natural yearning to know who we are. We sometimes refer to it as a journey.
