Life has always seemed to bring me both experiences and information in clusters. It is almost as if I have a personal research assistant dumping relevant information on my mind/desk for me to have a look at. Eventually the pile is so overwhelming, I have to take a look at it and sort through it or get buried.
One of those "issues" has been piling up fast and furious.
Many people seem to be abandoning organized religion or stepping into spirituality for the first time in their lives and "New Age" is touted as a viable alternative. It is a pretty vague classification and seems broad and relatively safe. Everyone is welcome and rules are loose and ambiguous.
It actually is no different than any of the other "religions."
Sheep can go right or left. Even if you are stampeding towards the right, the issue is still the same, you are not choosing it because you thought about it, or understand it, and are making a choice. Following someone and ending up at the finish line is not credit for a life well lived. It is not taking responsibility for yourself.
