==Origins==
 +
 
 +
The [[w:New Age Movement|New Age Movement]] is a modern revival of very ancient, divergent, religious traditions and [[w:Category:New_Age_practices|practices]]. The actual original root is squarely centered in [http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis%203:1-5&version=KJV Genesis 3:1-5], and reverberates throughout the movement's continued historical expressions. '''In the original lie, Satan questions God's word, His authority and benevolent rule''' (v. 1), '''disputes that death results from disobedience (v. 4), and claims that through the acquisition of secret or Gnostic wisdom man can be enlightened and can be "like God"''' (v. 5).
 +
 
 +
'''Many of the occult practices and beliefs revived by the modern NAM were a part of very early pagan cultures. Many practices common to the NAM, such as [[911:Black_Magic#Witchcraft|witchcraft/sorcery]], [[w:spiritism|spiritism]], [[w:divination|divination]], [[w:clairvoyance|clairvoyance]]; (seeing the future), [[911:Black_Magic#Necromancy|necromancy]] (consulting the dead), and [[w:astrology|astrology]], are clearly and strongly condemned in Scripture ([http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy%2018:%209-17&version=KJV Deuteronomy 18: 9-17]; [http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%2047:%209-15&version=KJV Isaiah 47: 9-15]). <u>These and other occultic practices were spread through the ancient magic and ''[[911:Awareness_control#Mystery_Religions|mystery religions]]'' '''</u> of the [[w:Chaldeans|Chaldeans]], [[w:Egyptians|Egyptians]], and most notably, the [[w:Assyrian-Babylonian|Assyrian-Babylonian]] culture (Ancient Empires of the New Age, pp. 15-62). Noting the scope of its continuing presence, the Bible informs Christians of Babylon's eschatological implications. The lie of Genesis 3 is significantly developed in Babylon (Isaiah 47) and continues to its ultimate state of development, revealed as Satan's one-world system at the end of the age (Revelation 17-18).
 +
 
 +
Three major world religions whose beliefs and practices are entwined with the NAM are [[w:Hinduism|Hinduism]], a product of 5,000 years of development, [[w:Buddhism|Buddhism]], circa 560 B.C., and [[w:Taoism|Taoism]], circa 500 B.C. (Eerdman's Handbook to the World's Religions, pp. 170, 221, 252). Another prominent occultic influence in Europe was [[w:Druidism|Druidism]], the religion of the Celts, which extended from 300 B.C. into the middle ages (Ibid., pp. 114-19)
 +
 
 +
The New Age Movement consists of an incredibly huge and well organized network consisting of thousands of groups, trusts, foundations, clubs, lodges, and religious groups whose goal and purpose is to prepare the world to enter the coming "[[w:Age Of Aquarius|Age Of Aquarius]]." A small sampling of only a few of the organizations involved would include: [[w:Amnesty International|Amnesty International]], [[w:Zero Population Growth|Zero Population Growth]], California New Age Caucus, [http://www.radicalmiddle.com/new_world_all.htm New World Alliance] (founded by [[w:Mark Satin|Mark Satin]]), [[w:World_Goodwill#The_Arcane_School_and_the_Lucis_Trust|World Goodwill]], [[w:Church Universal and Triumphant|The Church Universal and Triumphant]] ([[w:Ascended Master Teachings|Ascended Master Teachings]]), [[w:The Theosophical Society|The Theosophical Society]], the Forum, [http://www.watchmanbiblestudy.com/Articles/20071025_UNSeeksLucifericInitiation.htm Planetary Initiative For The World We Choose], the [[w:Club of Rome|Club of Rome]], [[w:Christian Science|Christian Science]], and the [[w:Unity Church|Unity School of Christianity]]. This list, by no means all inclusive, demonstrates the diversity of organizations operating in economic, political, and religious spheres of influence.
 +
 
 +
The New Age movement is not a unified, traditional cult system of beliefs and practices, even though its roots derive from [[w:Eastern religions|Eastern religions]] and the [[w:Portal:Occult|occult]]. It has no official leader, headquarters, nor membership list, but instead is a network of groups working toward specific goals. '''One of its main goals is to bring to the forefront a one-world leader who is called "The Christ" or "[[w:Maitreya|Maitreya]]"'''. Nevertheless, it is estimated that there are millions of worldwide followers of various New Age practices and/or holders of one or more of the major beliefs of the New Age.
 +
 
 +
The NAM (New Age Movement) has gained significant influence, affecting almost every area of the culture -- sociology, psychology, medicine, the government, ecology, science, arts, education, the business community, the media, entertainment, sports, and even the church. The movement expresses itself in widely divergent and various mutated forms, from the blatantly obvious to the subtle. It is expressed in organized religious forms such as Christian Science, Unity, and even forms of Witchcraft. Yet, it shows up in secular forms as well, in various human potential seminars, and much in between, i.e., transcendental meditation, some alternative holistic health practices, and certain curriculum in public (and private) schools.
 +
 
 +
'''The major goal of the New Age Movement is to bring peace to the world upon entering the [[w:Age of Aquarius|Age of Aquarius]]. This will be accomplished primarily through the leadership of "the Christ" (also known as "Lord [[w:Maitreya|Maitreya]]"), who will supposedly come to teach us to live at peace with each other. Some of the other stated goals of the movement are to establish a World Food Authority, World Water Authority, World Economic Order, and an entirely [[w:New World Order|New World Order]]. It should be noted here that one of the requirements for a person to enter the New Age is that he or she will have to take what is known as a "[[911:Black_Magic#Luciferianism|Luciferic Initiation]]," a kind of pledge of allegiance to the Christ of the New Age and to the New World Order.''' The primary goals of the movement then, are to prepare the world to receive the Christ and to enter the Age of Aquarius, thus establishing the New World Order.
 +
 
 +
'''The New Age Movement professes a broad-minded openness to all religions, but <u>its basic underlying philosophy represents a carefully calculated undermining of Judeo-Christian beliefs with various combinations of gnosticism and occultism</u>.''' [Gnosticism is an ancient world-view stating that Divine essence is the only true or highest reality, and that the unconscious Self of man is actually this essence. It is through intuitional discovery, "visionary experience or initiation into secret doctrine" (not the plenary revelation of propositional truth in the Bible), that man becomes conscious of this true Self (Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol. 10, 1968, p. 506; New Bible Dictionary, J.D. Douglas, ed., pp. 473-474).] It bears a remarkable resemblance to the apostate world religion that H.G. Wells claimed as his own and predicted would one day take over the world. It also fits the description of "The Plan" for establishing the new world government that is described in various psychic communications from alleged E.T.'s and [[w:ascended masters|ascended masters]]. There is one more connection: the New Age Movement fits the description of the [[w:Antichrist|Antichrist]]'s religion -- a rejection of the Judeo-Christian God and the declaration that Self is God. (Source: [[w:Dave_Hunt_(Christian_apologist)#Other|The Seduction of Christianity]].)

[[w:Douglas R. Groothuis|Douglas R. Groothuis]], author of Unmasking the New Age and Confronting the New Age, identifies six distinctives of New Age thinking:
 +
# all is one
 +
# all is God;
 +
# humanity is God
 +
# a change in consciousness
 +
# all religions are one
 +
# cosmic evolutionary optimism.
 +
 
 +
[[w:Norman Geisler|Norman Geisler]] details 14 primary "doctrines" of New Age religions:
 +
# an impersonal god (force)
 +
# an eternal universe
 +
# an illusory nature of matter
 +
# a cyclical nature of life
 +
# the necessity of reincarnations
 +
# the evolution of man into Godhood
 +
# continuing revelations from beings beyond the world
 +
# the identity of man with God
 +
# the need for meditation (or other consciousness-changing techniques)
 +
# occult practices (astrology, mediums, etc.)
 +
# vegetarianism and holistic health
 +
# pacifism (or anti-war activities)
 +
# one world (global) order
 +
# syncretism (unity of all religions). [HJB]
 +
 
 +
The New Age also encompasses a wide array of notions: [[911:Black_Magic#Spiritualism|spiritualism]], [[w:astrology|astrology]], [[w:Category:esoteric cosmology|Esoteric cosmology]], [[w:bioenergy|bioenergy]], [[w:Qi|Chi]] energy, [[w:chakras|chakras]], [[w:nirvana|nirvana]], [[w:Christ-consciousness|Christ-consciousness]], [[w:Native American Spirituality|Native American Spirituality]], [[w:Prajna|Prajna]], [[w:out-of-body|out-of-body]]/[[w:near-death experiences|near-death experiences]], [[w:reincarnation|reincarnation]], and the [[w:Portal:Occult|occult disciplines]] , as well as unorthodox psychotherapeutic techniques and pseudoscientific applications of the "healing powers" of [[w:Crystal healing|crystals]] and [[911:Occult_symbolism#Pyramid|pyramids]]. Some commonly used New Age terms are: [http://www.google.com/search?q=guided%20imagery&hl=en&emb=0&sa=N&tab=vw guided imagery], [[w:reincarnation|reincarnation]]; [[w:Positive psychology|positive thinking]]; [[w:Human Potential Movement|human potential]]; [[w:holistic|holistic]]; [[w:Holographic paradigm|holographic]]; [[w:Synergism|synergistic]]; [[w:Ecumenism|unity]]; [[w:oneness|oneness]]; [[w:Spiritual transformation|transformation]]; [[w:Bodhi|awakening]]; networking; communal sharing; one-world/globalism/[[w:new world order|new world order]] (i.e., one language, [[w:World government|one government]], one currency, one religion); [[w:cosmic consciousness|cosmic consciousness]]; etc. (See [[911:New Age Terminology|New Age Dictionary]].) ,[http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Cults/newage.htm.]

In summary, the term "New Age" is an informal term derived from astrology, which indicates that this earth, if not the cosmos, is on the verge of an evolutionary transition from the Piscean Age (rationality) to the Aquarian Age of spirituality, bliss, and harmony of all things. Even though it is undergoing a significant revival, the "New Age" is hardly new. In fact, it is very old. A better term would be the "Old Occult."
 +
 
 +
Keeping in mind that the myriads of New Age groups are quite eclectic, drawing from several religious traditions mentioned earlier, the following is a general description of the more prominent unifying themes of the NAM. i.e., the highlights of what New Agers believe concerning their source of authority, God, Christ, sin and salvation, good and evil, Satan, and future life:
 +
 
 +
<center>[[File:New-Age-vs-Bible.jpg|New-Age-vs-Bible.jpg]] </center>
 +
 
 +
==Source of Authority==
 +
 
 +
New Agers claim no external source of authority -- only an internal one ("the god within"). They believe the individual is the standard of truth, saying that "truth as an objective reality simply does not exist" (Shirley MacLaine, It's All in the Playing) (cf. 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21; Matt. 5:18). [HJB]
 +
 
 +
==God==
 +
 
 +
'''New Agers confuse the Creator with His creation and think that God is part of creation, not separate from it. They borrow from [[w:Eastern religions|Eastern religions]] the belief in [[w:monism|monism]] -- that "[[w:Oneness|all is One]]" -- only one essence in the universe, everyone and everything being a part of that essence.''' Everything is a different form of that essence (energy, consciousness, power, love, force). But the belief in [[w:monism|monism]] is really Hinduistic [[w:pantheism|pantheism]] (all is God). New Agers view God as an impersonal life force, consciousness, or [[911:Energy|energy]] (M. Ferguson, Aquarian Conspiracy, p. 382; S. Gawain, Living In the Light, pp. 7-8) (e.g., the "Star Wars Force"), rather than a Person. They believe that every person and thing is "intertwined" with God ([[w:Spiritual_evolution#New_Age_ideas|Spiritual evolution]] to the state of "the Christ" being), and use Luke 17:21 ("the kingdom of God is within you") to support this idea (despite the fact that "within you" in this passage means "in your midst"). They claim every human has a divine spark within him because of being part of the [[w:Ein Sof|divine essence]]. The state of God is called by various terms among different New Age groups, i.e., [[w:Higher consciousness|God-consciousness]], [[w:Universal Love|Universal Love]], [[w:Self-Realization|Self-Realization]], the [[w:I_Am#Religion|I AM]], [[w:Higher Self|Higher Self]], [[w:Brahman|Brahman]], [[w:Nirvana|Nirvana]], etc. New Agers are obviously part of a religion of [[911:The Birth of Idolatry|idolatry]] and [[w:Selfism|self-worship]]. [HJB]
 +
 
 +
==Jesus Christ==
 +
 
 +
A major idea in New Age thinking is that of the "Christ Consciousness." In other words, Christ is an office rather than an individual, such as Jesus, whom Christians know to be [[911:THE CHRIST|THE CHRIST]]. This idea of "Christ Consciousness" asserts that Jesus was not the only Christ, but that He equipped Himself to receive the "Christ Consciousness" (i.e., He was a great "spiritual master" who attained Christ Consciousness), as supposedly also did [[w:Buddha|Buddha]], [[w:Krishna|Krishna]], and [[w:Mohammed|Mohammed]]. [This is an old occult Gnostic teaching which stems from the ancient Babylonian [[w:mystery religions|mystery religions]] (Also see:[[911:The_Birth_of_Idolatry|The Birth of Idolatry]]). New Agers also reinvent the historical Jesus by claiming that he spent 18 years in India (during His "silent years") absorbing Hinduism and the teachings of Buddha.] New Agers believe that Jesus received the Christ Consciousness at His baptism, and that it left Him at His crucifixion.
 +
 
 +
==[[w:Sin|Sin]] and [[w:Salvation|Salvation]]==
 +
 
 +
There is no place for the concept of sin in the New Age. There can be no sin because there is no transcendent God to rebel against. There are no rules or absolute moral imperatives. New Agers have a "New Thought" view of sin, which knows nothing of a representative man (Adam) by whose sin all men sinned. Nor does New Thought teach that there is any original sin, but that man's true essence is divine and perfect. Indeed, it finds nothing which is of the nature of sin. Instead, it speaks of "troublesome desires" which appear to be natural human impulses which direct men from consciousness to their identity with God, and, therefore, are troublesome but hardly sinful. '''Since New Agers believe that each person is god, thereby having endless potential for self-improvement, sin is denied as the Bible defines it (man being inherently sinful and utterly depraved -- Rom. 5:12). Sin is merely ignorance of one's "inner divinity." Because sin does not exist, there is no need for repentance or forgiveness, and Jesus did not die for our sins. They think that any perceived lack that man might have is merely a lack of enlightenment, thereby eliminating the need of salvation or a Savior.''' [In fact, salvation is not even an issue for New Agers. The soul is part of the universe and never dies. It is reborn or reincarnated in different physical bodies in a succession of future lives. The good or bad "karma" earned in the present lifetime determines one's subsequent incarnation. Humans should seek to progress to higher states of consciousness and higher planes of existence. There are many different paths to the goal of spiritual perfection. No one path is the only correct path. '''The assumed cycle of [[w:reincarnation|reincarnation]] and [[w:karma|karma]] presupposes a salvation by works, contrary to the principle of salvation by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:8-9).]'''
 +
 
 +
==Man's Destiny==
 +
 
 +
The salvation of the world depends upon human beings. When enough people harmonize their positive energy and turn their thoughts to peace, the world will be cleansed or negative elements and New Age ideals will be realized in an era of spiritual enlightenment. Since man is intrinsically divine and perfect, his only real problem is ignorance of that fact. Man has a perception of finiteness which is, in reality, an illusion (Ken Keyes, Jr., Handbook to Higher Consciousness, pp. 125-29). '''Salvation in the New Age is for man to become enlightened through experiential knowledge (gnosis). New Age groups offer various occultic techniques to enable individuals, and ultimately the world, to evolve into this oneness (unitive) consciousness''' (James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy: An Experimental Guide, pp. 243-60). These techniques may include [[w:altered states of consciousness|altered states of consciousness]] (often [[w:transcendental meditation|transcendental meditation]]), [[w:yoga|yoga]], [[w:Crystal healing|crystals]], [[w:Mediumship|channeling]] ([[911:Black_Magic#Spiritualism|spirit guides]]), [[w:psychics|psychics]], [[w:Transpersonal_psychology#Research|past-life therapy]], [[w:acupuncture|acupuncture]], etc.
 +
 
 +
==Good and Evil==
 +
 
 +
:''"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so"'' - Quote from occultist [[w:Occult_theories_about_Francis_Bacon|Francis Bacon]] in his work Shakespeare:
 +
 
 +
Mimicking the [[w:Eastern religions|Eastern religions]], New Agers distort the distinction between good and evil. '''They believe that because "all is One," ultimately there is neither good nor evil.''' They think that a person can transcend his consciousness and go beyond the bounds of moral distinctions, so that even murder sometimes becomes an acceptable way of serving one's gods (e.g., Charles Manson). [HJB](Also see: [[w:Casuistry#History|Casuistry]])
 +
 
 +
==Satan==
 +
 
 +
The traditional view of '''[[911:Occult_symbolism_VII#Lucifer|Lucifer]]''' as the devil or [[w:Satan|Satan]] is clearly absent in New Age literature. Rather, he is described as a mighty being of light and the "Ruler of Humanity," as [[w:Alice_Bailey#Influence_on_the_New_Age_Movement|Alice Bailey, foundational apostle and leading writer of the New Age Movement]], puts it. As to the history and achievements of Lucifer, [[911:United_Nations#NewAge_members|Benjamin Creme]], a leading lecturer and proponent of the New Age, says, "Lucifer came from the planet Venus 18.5 million years ago; he's the director of our planetary evolution, he is the sacrificial lamb, and the prodigal son. Lucifer made an incredible sacrifice, a supreme sacrifice for our planet."
 +
 
 +
* New Agers do not accept the labeling of Pagans as Satanists. They believe that: Pagans follow pre-Christian or non-Christian spiritual paths. Satan belongs almost wholly to Christians. He is the dark god of the dualist Christian faith. It’s but the flipside of the Christian coin: Good & Evil, Light & Darkness, God & Satan. Has he not considered that Satanists are simply those who follow the dark side of his own faith? Most Pagans do not even believe in Satan, much less "worship" him! [http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/esp_sociopol_lucytrust03.htm]
 +
** What Pagan/New Agers forget is that Christianity does no start with Jesus Christ, but with the bible and in it, and the creation of earth since the beginning (Genesis), including the whole story of the jewish people who have fought against pagans (and paganism) and which (some of them) have become themselves apostate through syncretism several times through history.
 +
 
 +
==Future Life ([[w:Reincarnation|Reincarnation]])==
 +
 
 +
* '''New Agers believe in the ancient [Hindu] [[w:Eastern_religion#Hinduism|Eastern religious]] concept of reincarnation (See [[TerryHomePage:World Religions|World Religions Article]]) -- that through a long process of rebirths, man can eventually reach spiritual perfection''' (cf. Heb. 9:27). New Agers often place [[w:animal rights|animal rights]] above [[w:human rights|human rights]], because many New Agers believe animals are reincarnated souls. They also teach the Hindu principle of "[[w:karma|karma]]" -- that what a person sows in this life, he will reap in the next life in his reincarnated state. This belief in reincarnation has led to believing in the power of "[[w:spirit guides|spirit guides]]" or "[[w:Mediumship|channels]]" -- those who allow spirits from another dimension to speak through their bodies. [HJB] These entities always seem to repeat the three-fold error:(Brooks Alexander, Spiritual Counterfeits Project)
 +
# There is no death
 +
# man is god
 +
# knowledge of self is salvation and power
 +
 
 +
* '''New Agers misrepresent church history, the doctrines of Christianity, and often twist Scripture to support the idea that original Christianity taught reincarnation. They wrongly argue that the early church suppressed the doctrine and censored its teaching''' (Kenneth Ring, Heading Toward Omega, p. 158).
 +
 
 +
* ''Reincarnation'' -- '''Christians should be able to demonstrate that the Bible does NOT teach reincarnation'''. When Jesus calls John the Baptist "Elijah," He is clearly speaking metaphorically. Luke 1:17 demonstrates that John was filling the office of Elijah, fulfilling the prophecy of Malachi 4:5-6. In fact, Elijah was seen with Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration in Matthew 17:1-3. The meaning of the resurrection is the opposite of reincarnation (Hebrews 9:27; 1 Cor. 15:12-28). '''Point out that if God is an impersonal force, then love and forgiveness are not possible. These are personal attributes as opposed to impersonal karmic law. Fundamentally, intercessory prayer is absolutely necessary. The battle for the souls of men is won through God's grace, intervening and drawing them to Himself.'''

[[w:Meditation|Meditation]]: Although this practice is ancient, it cannot be traced to any one person. It is essential to the practice of the [[w:Hindu religion|Hindu religion]]. As far as we know, its origin is found in Hinduism. There are many types of meditations. Meditation claims to work by quieting the mind; the meditator is supposedly able to perceive the "true" reality which lies within his or her own nature, thereby achieving spiritual [[w:Enlightenment_(concept)|"enlightenment"]]. The ultimate level of the transcendental state is "pure awareness." '''Meditation is clearly a form of [[w:self-hypnosis|self-hypnosis]] as the participant repeats the phrases over and over again concentrating on the sound not the meaning.''' (See [http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+6:7&version=KJV Matthew 6:7]; "But when ye pray, <u>use not vain repetitions</u>, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking"). The breathing becomes very shallow, barely noticeable and the influences from the outside vanish.
 +
<br><br><u>''It opens up to spirits</u>
 +
* Dr. Michael Persinger, a psychologist at Laurentian University in Canada, found in 1993 that '''meditation induces [[w:epilepsy|epilepsy]] like brain [[w:seizures|seizures]] in some people.''' His study of 1,081 students showed that the 221 meditators among them had a '''higher rate of hallucinating [[w:Floater|floating spots]] of light, hearing voices, and even feeling the floor shake. Other studies reported that meditators complained of feeling emotionally dead and seeing the environment as unreal, two-dimensional, amorphous.'''[http://web.archive.org/web/20080110042016rn_1/www.sfweekly.com/2002-08-28/news/bad-vibes/].
 +
* Other side effects fall under the paradoxical umbrella of [[w:Anxiety#Paradoxical_anxiety|"relaxation-induced anxiety"]], or RIA. Instead of relaxing during meditation, RIA sufferers feel distressed. Psychologists at Virginia Commonwealth University monitored 30 chronically anxious people during guided meditation. Seventeen percent indicated that their anxiety got worse. A previous study led by Dr. Frederick Heide at Pennsylvania State University reported that the same happened to 54 percent of the subjects. Symptoms of RIA include [[w:panic attacks|panic attacks]], sweating, a pounding heart, [[w:spasms|spasms]], odd tingling sensations, and bursts of uncontrollable laughter or tears. RIA can also aggravate conditions, such as [[w:schizophrenia|schizophrenia]], [[w:depression|depression]], [[w:asthma|asthma]], and bleeding [[w:ulcers|ulcers]], that were previously stable.

 +
<br><br><u>''It is a system of self worship</u>
 +
* When one becomes proficient enough they do not need any training and simply focus within. You slow down your breathing until absolute stillness occurs. One can meditate by concentrating on their breathing and become one with their breath. Usually yoga is practiced along with this exercise, if one is serious. Here is where one's experience begins, senses of [[911:Consciousness#Oneness|oneness]] can occur as well revelations of the unity of all life and past lives.

Yoga:  Exercises in physical, mental or spiritual conditioning based on Eastern metaphysical assumptions designed to aid the practitioner in enlightenment or self-realization. [http://shalach.org/TorahYoga/YogaWarning.htm#7]
 +
# Yoga goals sometimes include altered states of consciousness or uniting the practitioner with the impersonal pantheistic God (a doctrine identifying the Deity with the universe and its phenomena as well as a belief in and worship of all gods).
 +
# The major types of Yoga include but are not limited to: Karma Yoga (spiritual union through correct conduct), Bhakti Yoga (spiritual union through devotion to a Guru), Juana Yoga (spiritual union through hidden knowledge), Raja Yoga (spiritual union through mental control), Hatha Yoga (spiritual union through body control/meditation), Kundalini Yoga (spiritual union through focusing inner energy) Tantra Yoga (spiritual union through sexual practices), and laya or mantra (the Yoga of sound).
 +
# Although the emphasis may vary, the basic goal in all Yoga is the same: union with ultimate reality, however defined.  In Hinduism this would be union of the individual self (atman) with the supreme self (paramatman), itself one with Brahman, the highest impersonal Hindu God; in Buddhism it would be union with Nirvana.  In addition, Yoga philosophy is based on the concept of reincarnation and is drawn from the Upanishads and other Hindu scriptures
 +
# [[w:Yoga|Yoga]] is not considered to be ''magick per se''.  It is essentially the necessary training of the mind and body to allow for certain types of magick to be performed. Simply put, the aim is the control of the mind, i.e. to increase concentration and to be able to enter different states of consciousness. When developing his own basic yogic program, Crowley borrowed ideas from other yogis such as [[w:Patanjali|Patanjali]] and [[w:Yajnavalkya|Yajnavalkya]].

* '''Virtually all standard Yoga texts acknowledge that Yoga practice develops psychic powers and other occult abilities.
 +
 
 +
All this is why the Yoga scholar and Sanskrit authority [http://www.rickbruns.com/Spiritual/DrMishra.htm Rammurti Mishra] can interpret Yoga theory as laying the foundation for occultism.  '''"In conclusion, it may be said that behind every psychic investigation, behind mysticism, occultism, etc., knowingly or unknowingly, the Yoga system is present."'''  In his article "Kundalini and the Occult," occult authority John White observes that the essence of occultism is the attempt to gain "higher" knowledge and power or control of the forces of nature, especially the "life energy" (prana) which underlies the basis of true magic and psychic phenomena.  '''"In its highest form, occult science merges indistinguishably with true mysticism....  [M]ysticism and genuine occultism are closely allied.... The heart of genuine occult practices appear to be synonymous with aspects of the [yogic] kundalini concept…." ''' Yoga authority [[w:Sir John Woodroffe|Sir John Woodroffe]] (Arthur Avalon), author of a standard text on kundalini Yoga, The Serpent Power, agrees, and he supplies many additional reasons why Yoga and occult magic go hand in hand.  Until his death, perhaps the leading authority on shamanism and comparative religion was Mircea Eliade.  Note his observations of the similarities between yoga and witchcraft: "All features associated with European witches are claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians."  Along with a range of occult powers common to both, some yogis:
 +
 
 +
"... boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules: that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses.  In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseam in the Western European witch trials."
 +
 
 +
Because Yoga is an occult system, the physical, mental, and spiritual dangers that accompany occult practices are also found in Yoga.  Thus, even standard Yoga books warn of the serious dangers arising from supposedly "wrong" Yoga practice.  But we think such hazards are conceded because Yoga is an occult practice, not because its techniques are allegedly done incorrectly.

Intro

Origins

The New Age Movement is a modern revival of very ancient, divergent, religious traditions and practices. The actual original root is squarely centered in Genesis 3:1-5, and reverberates throughout the movement's continued historical expressions. In the original lie, Satan questions God's word, His authority and benevolent rule (v. 1), disputes that death results from disobedience (v. 4), and claims that through the acquisition of secret or Gnostic wisdom man can be enlightened and can be "like God" (v. 5).

Many of the occult practices and beliefs revived by the modern NAM were a part of very early pagan cultures. Many practices common to the NAM, such as witchcraft/sorcery, spiritism, divination, clairvoyance; (seeing the future), necromancy (consulting the dead), and astrology, are clearly and strongly condemned in Scripture (Deuteronomy 18: 9-17; Isaiah 47: 9-15). These and other occultic practices were spread through the ancient magic and mystery religions of the Chaldeans, Egyptians, and most notably, the Assyrian-Babylonian culture (Ancient Empires of the New Age, pp. 15-62). Noting the scope of its continuing presence, the Bible informs Christians of Babylon's eschatological implications. The lie of Genesis 3 is significantly developed in Babylon (Isaiah 47) and continues to its ultimate state of development, revealed as Satan's one-world system at the end of the age (Revelation 17-18).

Three major world religions whose beliefs and practices are entwined with the NAM are Hinduism, a product of 5,000 years of development, Buddhism, circa 560 B.C., and Taoism, circa 500 B.C. (Eerdman's Handbook to the World's Religions, pp. 170, 221, 252). Another prominent occultic influence in Europe was Druidism, the religion of the Celts, which extended from 300 B.C. into the middle ages (Ibid., pp. 114-19)

The New Age Movement consists of an incredibly huge and well organized network consisting of thousands of groups, trusts, foundations, clubs, lodges, and religious groups whose goal and purpose is to prepare the world to enter the coming "Age Of Aquarius." A small sampling of only a few of the organizations involved would include: Amnesty International, Zero Population Growth, California New Age Caucus, New World Alliance (founded by Mark Satin), World Goodwill, The Church Universal and Triumphant (Ascended Master Teachings), The Theosophical Society, the Forum, Planetary Initiative For The World We Choose, the Club of Rome, Christian Science, and the Unity School of Christianity. This list, by no means all inclusive, demonstrates the diversity of organizations operating in economic, political, and religious spheres of influence.

The New Age movement is not a unified, traditional cult system of beliefs and practices, even though its roots derive from Eastern religions and the occult. It has no official leader, headquarters, nor membership list, but instead is a network of groups working toward specific goals. One of its main goals is to bring to the forefront a one-world leader who is called "The Christ" or "Maitreya". Nevertheless, it is estimated that there are millions of worldwide followers of various New Age practices and/or holders of one or more of the major beliefs of the New Age.

The NAM (New Age Movement) has gained significant influence, affecting almost every area of the culture -- sociology, psychology, medicine, the government, ecology, science, arts, education, the business community, the media, entertainment, sports, and even the church. The movement expresses itself in widely divergent and various mutated forms, from the blatantly obvious to the subtle. It is expressed in organized religious forms such as Christian Science, Unity, and even forms of Witchcraft. Yet, it shows up in secular forms as well, in various human potential seminars, and much in between, i.e., transcendental meditation, some alternative holistic health practices, and certain curriculum in public (and private) schools.

The major goal of the New Age Movement is to bring peace to the world upon entering the Age of Aquarius. This will be accomplished primarily through the leadership of "the Christ" (also known as "Lord Maitreya"), who will supposedly come to teach us to live at peace with each other. Some of the other stated goals of the movement are to establish a World Food Authority, World Water Authority, World Economic Order, and an entirely New World Order. It should be noted here that one of the requirements for a person to enter the New Age is that he or she will have to take what is known as a "Luciferic Initiation," a kind of pledge of allegiance to the Christ of the New Age and to the New World Order. The primary goals of the movement then, are to prepare the world to receive the Christ and to enter the Age of Aquarius, thus establishing the New World Order.

The New Age Movement professes a broad-minded openness to all religions, but its basic underlying philosophy represents a carefully calculated undermining of Judeo-Christian beliefs with various combinations of gnosticism and occultism. [Gnosticism is an ancient world-view stating that Divine essence is the only true or highest reality, and that the unconscious Self of man is actually this essence. It is through intuitional discovery, "visionary experience or initiation into secret doctrine" (not the plenary revelation of propositional truth in the Bible), that man becomes conscious of this true Self (Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol. 10, 1968, p. 506; New Bible Dictionary, J.D. Douglas, ed., pp. 473-474).] It bears a remarkable resemblance to the apostate world religion that H.G. Wells claimed as his own and predicted would one day take over the world. It also fits the description of "The Plan" for establishing the new world government that is described in various psychic communications from alleged E.T.'s and ascended masters. There is one more connection: the New Age Movement fits the description of the Antichrist's religion -- a rejection of the Judeo-Christian God and the declaration that Self is God. (Source: The Seduction of Christianity.)

Douglas R. Groothuis, author of Unmasking the New Age and Confronting the New Age, identifies six distinctives of New Age thinking:

  1. all is one
  2. all is God;
  3. humanity is God
  4. a change in consciousness
  5. all religions are one
  6. cosmic evolutionary optimism.

Norman Geisler details 14 primary "doctrines" of New Age religions:

  1. an impersonal god (force)
  2. an eternal universe
  3. an illusory nature of matter
  4. a cyclical nature of life
  5. the necessity of reincarnations
  6. the evolution of man into Godhood
  7. continuing revelations from beings beyond the world
  8. the identity of man with God
  9. the need for meditation (or other consciousness-changing techniques)
  10. occult practices (astrology, mediums, etc.)
  11. vegetarianism and holistic health
  12. pacifism (or anti-war activities)
  13. one world (global) order
  14. syncretism (unity of all religions). [HJB]

The New Age also encompasses a wide array of notions: spiritualism, astrology, Esoteric cosmology, bioenergy, Chi energy, chakras, nirvana, Christ-consciousness, Native American Spirituality, Prajna, out-of-body/near-death experiences, reincarnation, and the occult disciplines , as well as unorthodox psychotherapeutic techniques and pseudoscientific applications of the "healing powers" of crystals and pyramids. Some commonly used New Age terms are: guided imagery, reincarnation; positive thinking; human potential; holistic; holographic; synergistic; unity; oneness; transformation; awakening; networking; communal sharing; one-world/globalism/new world order (i.e., one language, one government, one currency, one religion); cosmic consciousness; etc. (See New Age Dictionary.) ,[16]

Belief programs

In summary, the term "New Age" is an informal term derived from astrology, which indicates that this earth, if not the cosmos, is on the verge of an evolutionary transition from the Piscean Age (rationality) to the Aquarian Age of spirituality, bliss, and harmony of all things. Even though it is undergoing a significant revival, the "New Age" is hardly new. In fact, it is very old. A better term would be the "Old Occult."

Keeping in mind that the myriads of New Age groups are quite eclectic, drawing from several religious traditions mentioned earlier, the following is a general description of the more prominent unifying themes of the NAM. i.e., the highlights of what New Agers believe concerning their source of authority, God, Christ, sin and salvation, good and evil, Satan, and future life:

New-Age-vs-Bible.jpg

Source of Authority

New Agers claim no external source of authority -- only an internal one ("the god within"). They believe the individual is the standard of truth, saying that "truth as an objective reality simply does not exist" (Shirley MacLaine, It's All in the Playing) (cf. 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21; Matt. 5:18). [HJB]

God

New Agers confuse the Creator with His creation and think that God is part of creation, not separate from it. They borrow from Eastern religions the belief in monism -- that "all is One" -- only one essence in the universe, everyone and everything being a part of that essence. Everything is a different form of that essence (energy, consciousness, power, love, force). But the belief in monism is really Hinduistic pantheism (all is God). New Agers view God as an impersonal life force, consciousness, or energy (M. Ferguson, Aquarian Conspiracy, p. 382; S. Gawain, Living In the Light, pp. 7-8) (e.g., the "Star Wars Force"), rather than a Person. They believe that every person and thing is "intertwined" with God (Spiritual evolution to the state of "the Christ" being), and use Luke 17:21 ("the kingdom of God is within you") to support this idea (despite the fact that "within you" in this passage means "in your midst"). They claim every human has a divine spark within him because of being part of the divine essence. The state of God is called by various terms among different New Age groups, i.e., God-consciousness, Universal Love, Self-Realization, the I AM, Higher Self, Brahman, Nirvana, etc. New Agers are obviously part of a religion of idolatry and self-worship. [HJB]

Jesus Christ

A major idea in New Age thinking is that of the "Christ Consciousness." In other words, Christ is an office rather than an individual, such as Jesus, whom Christians know to be THE CHRIST. This idea of "Christ Consciousness" asserts that Jesus was not the only Christ, but that He equipped Himself to receive the "Christ Consciousness" (i.e., He was a great "spiritual master" who attained Christ Consciousness), as supposedly also did Buddha, Krishna, and Mohammed. [This is an old occult Gnostic teaching which stems from the ancient Babylonian mystery religions (Also see:The Birth of Idolatry). New Agers also reinvent the historical Jesus by claiming that he spent 18 years in India (during His "silent years") absorbing Hinduism and the teachings of Buddha.] New Agers believe that Jesus received the Christ Consciousness at His baptism, and that it left Him at His crucifixion.

Sin and Salvation

There is no place for the concept of sin in the New Age. There can be no sin because there is no transcendent God to rebel against. There are no rules or absolute moral imperatives. New Agers have a "New Thought" view of sin, which knows nothing of a representative man (Adam) by whose sin all men sinned. Nor does New Thought teach that there is any original sin, but that man's true essence is divine and perfect. Indeed, it finds nothing which is of the nature of sin. Instead, it speaks of "troublesome desires" which appear to be natural human impulses which direct men from consciousness to their identity with God, and, therefore, are troublesome but hardly sinful. Since New Agers believe that each person is god, thereby having endless potential for self-improvement, sin is denied as the Bible defines it (man being inherently sinful and utterly depraved -- Rom. 5:12). Sin is merely ignorance of one's "inner divinity." Because sin does not exist, there is no need for repentance or forgiveness, and Jesus did not die for our sins. They think that any perceived lack that man might have is merely a lack of enlightenment, thereby eliminating the need of salvation or a Savior. [In fact, salvation is not even an issue for New Agers. The soul is part of the universe and never dies. It is reborn or reincarnated in different physical bodies in a succession of future lives. The good or bad "karma" earned in the present lifetime determines one's subsequent incarnation. Humans should seek to progress to higher states of consciousness and higher planes of existence. There are many different paths to the goal of spiritual perfection. No one path is the only correct path. The assumed cycle of reincarnation and karma presupposes a salvation by works, contrary to the principle of salvation by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:8-9).]

Man's Destiny

The salvation of the world depends upon human beings. When enough people harmonize their positive energy and turn their thoughts to peace, the world will be cleansed or negative elements and New Age ideals will be realized in an era of spiritual enlightenment. Since man is intrinsically divine and perfect, his only real problem is ignorance of that fact. Man has a perception of finiteness which is, in reality, an illusion (Ken Keyes, Jr., Handbook to Higher Consciousness, pp. 125-29). Salvation in the New Age is for man to become enlightened through experiential knowledge (gnosis). New Age groups offer various occultic techniques to enable individuals, and ultimately the world, to evolve into this oneness (unitive) consciousness (James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy: An Experimental Guide, pp. 243-60). These techniques may include altered states of consciousness (often transcendental meditation), yoga, crystals, channeling (spirit guides), psychics, past-life therapy, acupuncture, etc.

Good and Evil

"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so" - Quote from occultist Francis Bacon in his work Shakespeare:

Mimicking the Eastern religions, New Agers distort the distinction between good and evil. They believe that because "all is One," ultimately there is neither good nor evil. They think that a person can transcend his consciousness and go beyond the bounds of moral distinctions, so that even murder sometimes becomes an acceptable way of serving one's gods (e.g., Charles Manson). [HJB](Also see: Casuistry)

Satan

The traditional view of Lucifer as the devil or Satan is clearly absent in New Age literature. Rather, he is described as a mighty being of light and the "Ruler of Humanity," as Alice Bailey, foundational apostle and leading writer of the New Age Movement, puts it. As to the history and achievements of Lucifer, Benjamin Creme, a leading lecturer and proponent of the New Age, says, "Lucifer came from the planet Venus 18.5 million years ago; he's the director of our planetary evolution, he is the sacrificial lamb, and the prodigal son. Lucifer made an incredible sacrifice, a supreme sacrifice for our planet."

  • New Agers do not accept the labeling of Pagans as Satanists. They believe that: Pagans follow pre-Christian or non-Christian spiritual paths. Satan belongs almost wholly to Christians. He is the dark god of the dualist Christian faith. It’s but the flipside of the Christian coin: Good & Evil, Light & Darkness, God & Satan. Has he not considered that Satanists are simply those who follow the dark side of his own faith? Most Pagans do not even believe in Satan, much less "worship" him! [17]
    • What Pagan/New Agers forget is that Christianity does no start with Jesus Christ, but with the bible and in it, and the creation of earth since the beginning (Genesis), including the whole story of the jewish people who have fought against pagans (and paganism) and which (some of them) have become themselves apostate through syncretism several times through history.

Future Life (Reincarnation)

  • New Agers believe in the ancient [Hindu] Eastern religious concept of reincarnation (See World Religions Article) -- that through a long process of rebirths, man can eventually reach spiritual perfection (cf. Heb. 9:27). New Agers often place animal rights above human rights, because many New Agers believe animals are reincarnated souls. They also teach the Hindu principle of "karma" -- that what a person sows in this life, he will reap in the next life in his reincarnated state. This belief in reincarnation has led to believing in the power of "spirit guides" or "channels" -- those who allow spirits from another dimension to speak through their bodies. [HJB] These entities always seem to repeat the three-fold error:(Brooks Alexander, Spiritual Counterfeits Project)
  1. There is no death
  2. man is god
  3. knowledge of self is salvation and power
  • New Agers misrepresent church history, the doctrines of Christianity, and often twist Scripture to support the idea that original Christianity taught reincarnation. They wrongly argue that the early church suppressed the doctrine and censored its teaching (Kenneth Ring, Heading Toward Omega, p. 158).
  • Reincarnation -- Christians should be able to demonstrate that the Bible does NOT teach reincarnation. When Jesus calls John the Baptist "Elijah," He is clearly speaking metaphorically. Luke 1:17 demonstrates that John was filling the office of Elijah, fulfilling the prophecy of Malachi 4:5-6. In fact, Elijah was seen with Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration in Matthew 17:1-3. The meaning of the resurrection is the opposite of reincarnation (Hebrews 9:27; 1 Cor. 15:12-28). Point out that if God is an impersonal force, then love and forgiveness are not possible. These are personal attributes as opposed to impersonal karmic law. Fundamentally, intercessory prayer is absolutely necessary. The battle for the souls of men is won through God's grace, intervening and drawing them to Himself.

Spiritual practice

Meditation

An idle mind is the devil's workshop

Meditation: Although this practice is ancient, it cannot be traced to any one person. It is essential to the practice of the Hindu religion. As far as we know, its origin is found in Hinduism. There are many types of meditations. Meditation claims to work by quieting the mind; the meditator is supposedly able to perceive the "true" reality which lies within his or her own nature, thereby achieving spiritual "enlightenment". The ultimate level of the transcendental state is "pure awareness." Meditation is clearly a form of self-hypnosis as the participant repeats the phrases over and over again concentrating on the sound not the meaning. (See Matthew 6:7; "But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking"). The breathing becomes very shallow, barely noticeable and the influences from the outside vanish.

It opens up to spirits

  • Dr. Michael Persinger, a psychologist at Laurentian University in Canada, found in 1993 that meditation induces epilepsy like brain seizures in some people. His study of 1,081 students showed that the 221 meditators among them had a higher rate of hallucinating floating spots of light, hearing voices, and even feeling the floor shake. Other studies reported that meditators complained of feeling emotionally dead and seeing the environment as unreal, two-dimensional, amorphous.[18].
  • Other side effects fall under the paradoxical umbrella of "relaxation-induced anxiety", or RIA. Instead of relaxing during meditation, RIA sufferers feel distressed. Psychologists at Virginia Commonwealth University monitored 30 chronically anxious people during guided meditation. Seventeen percent indicated that their anxiety got worse. A previous study led by Dr. Frederick Heide at Pennsylvania State University reported that the same happened to 54 percent of the subjects. Symptoms of RIA include panic attacks, sweating, a pounding heart, spasms, odd tingling sensations, and bursts of uncontrollable laughter or tears. RIA can also aggravate conditions, such as schizophrenia, depression, asthma, and bleeding ulcers, that were previously stable. [19]



It is a system of self worship

  • When one becomes proficient enough they do not need any training and simply focus within. You slow down your breathing until absolute stillness occurs. One can meditate by concentrating on their breathing and become one with their breath. Usually yoga is practiced along with this exercise, if one is serious. Here is where one's experience begins, senses of oneness can occur as well revelations of the unity of all life and past lives. One can also travel into other realms, be engulfed in light and can meet spirit guides. The ultimate goal of meditation is to self realize your divinity, that you are God. Like its counterpart Yoga it is Hinduistic to its core. The ultimate goal of meditation and yoga is to realize you are God. "MEDITATE ON YOUR SELF" "WORSHIP YOUR SELF "YOUR GOD DWELLS WITHIN YOU AS YOU". Swami Muktananda. (Siddha Yoga Dham Foundation) Muktananda's advice to his disciples was: "Kneel to your own self. Honor and worship your own being. God dwells within you as You." This is the essence of Hinduism of which all guru's promote through yoga and meditation.[20]

Yoga

Yoga: Exercises in physical, mental or spiritual conditioning based on Eastern metaphysical assumptions designed to aid the practitioner in enlightenment or self-realization. [21]

  1. Yoga goals sometimes include altered states of consciousness or uniting the practitioner with the impersonal pantheistic God (a doctrine identifying the Deity with the universe and its phenomena as well as a belief in and worship of all gods).
  2. The major types of Yoga include but are not limited to: Karma Yoga (spiritual union through correct conduct), Bhakti Yoga (spiritual union through devotion to a Guru), Juana Yoga (spiritual union through hidden knowledge), Raja Yoga (spiritual union through mental control), Hatha Yoga (spiritual union through body control/meditation), Kundalini Yoga (spiritual union through focusing inner energy) Tantra Yoga (spiritual union through sexual practices), and laya or mantra (the Yoga of sound).
  3. Although the emphasis may vary, the basic goal in all Yoga is the same: union with ultimate reality, however defined. In Hinduism this would be union of the individual self (atman) with the supreme self (paramatman), itself one with Brahman, the highest impersonal Hindu God; in Buddhism it would be union with Nirvana. In addition, Yoga philosophy is based on the concept of reincarnation and is drawn from the Upanishads and other Hindu scriptures
  4. Yoga is not considered to be magick per se. It is essentially the necessary training of the mind and body to allow for certain types of magick to be performed. Simply put, the aim is the control of the mind, i.e. to increase concentration and to be able to enter different states of consciousness. When developing his own basic yogic program, Crowley borrowed ideas from other yogis such as Patanjali and Yajnavalkya.
  • Virtually all standard Yoga texts acknowledge that Yoga practice develops psychic powers and other occult abilities.

All this is why the Yoga scholar and Sanskrit authority Rammurti Mishra can interpret Yoga theory as laying the foundation for occultism. "In conclusion, it may be said that behind every psychic investigation, behind mysticism, occultism, etc., knowingly or unknowingly, the Yoga system is present." In his article "Kundalini and the Occult," occult authority John White observes that the essence of occultism is the attempt to gain "higher" knowledge and power or control of the forces of nature, especially the "life energy" (prana) which underlies the basis of true magic and psychic phenomena. "In its highest form, occult science merges indistinguishably with true mysticism.... [M]ysticism and genuine occultism are closely allied.... The heart of genuine occult practices appear to be synonymous with aspects of the [yogic] kundalini concept…." Yoga authority Sir John Woodroffe (Arthur Avalon), author of a standard text on kundalini Yoga, The Serpent Power, agrees, and he supplies many additional reasons why Yoga and occult magic go hand in hand. Until his death, perhaps the leading authority on shamanism and comparative religion was Mircea Eliade. Note his observations of the similarities between yoga and witchcraft: "All features associated with European witches are claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians." Along with a range of occult powers common to both, some yogis:

"... boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules: that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses. In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseam in the Western European witch trials."

Because Yoga is an occult system, the physical, mental, and spiritual dangers that accompany occult practices are also found in Yoga. Thus, even standard Yoga books warn of the serious dangers arising from supposedly "wrong" Yoga practice. But we think such hazards are conceded because Yoga is an occult practice, not because its techniques are allegedly done incorrectly.

Alien presence

Earlier in this series, we pointed out how the English theologian George Hawkins Pember, in his 1876 masterpiece, Earth’s Earliest Ages, studied the book of Matthew—where Jesus in answering His disciples concerning the signs of His coming and of the end of the world said it would be “as the days of Noah were”—and concluded from it that the most fearful sign of the end times would be the reappearance upon earth “of beings from the Principality of the Air (Fallen Angels), and their unlawful intercourse with the human race.” [22]

Ufology

"For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect" (Matthew verse 24).

The modern day secular "Alien" agenda started with the Radio research project (The Radio Project also researched the 1938 Halloween broadcast of The War of the Worlds. They found that of the estimated 6 million people who heard this broadcast, 25% thought it was real... wikipedia). The foundation of the alien agenda has been further reinforced with UFO sightings all over the world and the popular hollywood theme of alien invasion scenarios, all this to indoctrinate generations in order to give birth to modern day exopolitics which includes institutions such as the United Nations outer space affairs. Nonetheless the occult circles have known/studied this phenomenon long ago and consider the "aliens" as Ascended Masters, and some new agers link them to gods of old time.


  • Literature:
    • "The UFO phenomenon developed spontaneously in the wake of science-fiction literature more than 50 years ago, when Kenneth Arnold observed in June 1947 the very first 'flying saucers'. The American military was then quickly able to profit from the fascination for extraterrestrials aroused in the public. Since then, it has continued to cultivate the belief in extraterrestrials and the fallacious impression that it is trying to cover up its supposed knowledge of the extraterrestrial origin of the UFOs." [23]

UFO and Occultism

UFO's and Ascended Masters

The Theosophical guru Benjamin Creme claims that the Messiah figure he refers to as Maitreya, whom he teaches will soon declare himself publicly, is in telepathic contact with the space brothers in their flying saucers. (Creme, Benjamin Maitreya's Mission--Volume II Amsterdam:1997 Share International Foundation Page 217). Creme subscribes to the view that Nordic aliens from Venus pilot flying saucers from a civilization on Venus hundreds of millions of years in advance of ours that exists on the etheric plane of Venus. These flying saucers are capable of stepping down the level of vibration of themselves and their craft to the slower level of vibration of the atoms of the physical plane (Creme accepts George Adamski's UFO sightings as valid). (Creme, Benjamin The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of the Wisdom London:1980 Tara Press Page 205). According to Creme, the Venusians have mother ship up to four miles long. It is also believed by the Theosophists in general as well as Creme in particular that the governing deity of Earth, Sanat Kumara (who is believed to live in a city called Shamballa located above the Gobi desert on the etheric plane of Earth), is a Nordic alien who originally came from Venus 18,500,000 years ago. (Creme, Benjamin The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of the Wisdom London:1980 Tara Press Page 117). The followers of Benjamin Creme believe there is regular flying saucer traffic between Venus and Shamballah and that crop circles are mostly caused by flying saucers.

Crop circles

Ouroboros crop circle. Notice the largest sphere touches the smallest sphere. This shows how in the abstract mathematical sense, extreme opposites connect to complete the “connection” of two opposite polarities touching each other for the first time (the theoretical start of the universe). The head of the Ouroboros symbolizes one side of polar opposites and the tail the other. [15]
