The Many Paths Of The New Age

May 22, 2008
All roads lead to Rome. With this thought in mind, we find that out of all the worlds' major religions, people are seeking a more personal route. They want to find the answers for themselves, and find a spirituality which the other religions can't seem to offer.

For thousands of years, the major religions have kept a monopoly on religion. With many different dogmas to adhere to, and so few answers, people have been seeking a change. Oddly enough this change is not to the new, as the name new age applies, it applies to mainly old religions which predate the Judeo religions.

Some of these new age paths are as old as man. They have been with humanity since the dawn of time, and seem to have a simplicity to them, which all the major religions don't seem to exhibit so much. For many countless centuries the major religions tried to destroy all about these religions, however, in today's world, people are seeking answers, and it seems that the new age may provide the answers.

For many people the first point into the new age is through some form of divination. This could be horoscopes and astrology or even tarot or Ouija. These allow us to find answers which in our daily world would be impossible to find. We find about the future. And though some hold to the truth contained, there are skeptics.

There are many paths in the new age. It is hard to call them religions, as religion is a way of doing things, having a dogma. And no, this does not mean making up your own rules. Though for many in the new age, will often go for the proven - as long as it harms none.

In the west, meditation is becoming very popular. In fact in our hectic lifestyles, meditation may just be the key to remove the stress, and find peace and harmony in our world. This has made Yoga, Buddhism and Hinduism popular.

Both of these paths contain a rich history, which most of the major religions can't claim. The Asian religions have routes in texts which go back thousands of years, and are some of humanities earliest texts.

The new age does not stop there however. Giving name to all of the paths that makes up the new age would be difficult. For many it is about individuality, rather than trying to find the mass. Most in the new age are not likely to go for a path that the majority follows.

Possibly one of the biggest parts of the new age is Wicca also known as witch craft. However, for many people in the world, this has thoughts of voodoo and other such unknown thoughts. However, Wicca is more of a natural religion that bases itself on nature and both aspects of male and female, rather than a king for a God.

Another factor which separates the major religions and the different paths of the new age is that with the belief in reincarnation. Most of the major religions believe in a thought that we only have one opportunity in this plane, then we get judged, and either goes to heaven or hell for good.

The old age is making a come back, it is now called the new age, the new thought, and to some the dawning of the Aquarian age. There is no doubt that more and more people will find the benefits within the new age. It is allowing a freedom of religion which the major religions simply can't resolve between each other.
