I love reading intelligent appraisals of ‘New Age’ doctrine and how cult-like it is. I see the New Age spirituality ‘masters’ and ‘gurus’ and I see straight through much of their motivations, egos and issues. I don’t believe they all intentionally harm others, they are just highly self deluded and delude others. It’s easily done. Sadly.
But, I was on a spiritual journey in my late 20’s and progressed through any new age lies (now with psychology understanding), so I just hope others do the same.
So much new age thinking/doctrine, is purely based on magical thinking and cognitively distorted thinking.
I like to see intelligent and rational thinkers, explain this well. As a person with a great need for rationality and being a realist, I relate to those with rational thinking. It is there I find wisdom and can learn and grow.
