    I tried to explain this philosophy to many people, but I wasn't capable of explaining it very well like in this video, it sounded weird. Also the incarnation part which are talking in the video, its not only for humans, we are connected to every living thing and every energy in the universe. We are all connected. If I die, I still live as you, I am you and everything that exists, that's the point, life continues, energy continues, even without you as of now.

    So....New Age? I thought you where a science channel? This is really disturbing. This stuff is cropping up everywhere and it’s destroying lives. If you don’t believe me look at the comments on New Age guru videos. Count all the times people say “ I started practicing these teachings and I began to lose everything.” Or “ Once I began awakening, dark and scary supernatural things started happening to me.” Or “I felt that I no longer resonated with my family and friends so I cut them out of my life.” Count every time the wonderful enlightened Law Of Attraction guru tells you to ignore horror and injustice in the world, or focus on you and your own abundance. Sometimes they say truly awful things like “you must love and embrace the things in yourself that you consider evil.” The two founders of modern New Age are Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey, both of whom taught that Lucifer is the true savior and God of mankind. Every major tenet of modern New Age supposedly came from a channeled entity claiming to be a being of light. God warns against channeling REPEATEDLY in the Bible. Consider the issue from a secular perspective, you have nothing other then the entity in question’s word that it is benevolent. You wouldn’t blindly trust a human like that so why would you trust a spirit? Look back even farther to Hinduism which formed much of the basis for their teachings. The best way to objectively judge the truth and effectiveness of a religion in my opinion is to look at the societies that are built on them. Are India and Pakistan wonderful utopias? Do people live healthy and fair lives there? Here’s another example, Catholicism is distinct from biblical Christianity because it demands things of people that the Bible either doesn’t call for or directly countermands. Celibate priesthood, confession, prayer to saints, and the authority of the pope and Vatican to speak for God and supersede the Bible are all unbiblical. As a result of this we can look at the impact of Catholicism throughout history and see the damage it has done and the poverty, misery, and corruption that people in countries shaped by Catholicism live under. This is the only objective measure that I know of to determine if a religion is detrimental, and by applying this metric to New Age I come to the conclusion that it is no good at all. If you don’t believe me then look into it yourself. There is something very toxic in this ideology and it grieves me to see it spreading. I just want people to see the dark side before they embrace it. They talk about love and peace but practically everything they teach in order to get there goes against Jesus’s teachings.
