In part 9 of the continuing series, Re-Reading the New Age, we’re continuing our look at A Course In Miracles. I didn’t realize until recently how deeply influenced Dr. Schucman was by Mary Baker Eddy’s Christian Science.
In part 8 of Re-Reading the New Age we’re in the beginning stages of our exploration of A Course In Miracles from a Catholic perspective.
Is Jesus Really the Author of A Course in Miracles? (Hint: NO) If He is the Author, if He did dictate this long long course, then He was perfectly happy to let Christians misunderstand Him and spread the wrong message for 2,000 years. Seems untrustworthy.
Welcome to part 6 of the continuing series, Re-Reading the New Age, wherein I reveal probably more than I should. I talked about some things in Part 5 that were important to me in my New Age days, and I mentioned a few more at the end of the post, but that’s all, they were bare mentions. I’ll go into more about them now.
I’ve been thinking lately about how I got into the New Age “movement,” for lack of a better word. Maybe I’ll ramble my way to a book about this stuff.
Continuing to read Alice Bailey’s Education in the New Age, chapter 2 this time, focusing on her ideas on civilization and culture, religion and its role (or lack thereof) in education. Remember, Robert Muller (not Mueller) based his Word Core Curriculum on Bailey’s teachings. Good grief.
In part 3 of Re-Reading the New Age, we’re taking a closer look at chapter 1 of Alice Bailey’s Education in the New Age. It’s been more influential than one might think so it’s important to know what it’s about and what its aims are.
Part 2 in a continuing series exploring and exposing what the New Age is really about. I used to enjoy Bailey’s books even if I was mystified by them. Now I’m less mystified and more horrified that I turned people on to her ideas. This exploration and writing now is part of my mission and my penance.
Re-Reading the New Age is an ongoing monthly series posted on the first Monday of the month. I started writing it because I was going back to re-read some of the books I read while I was a New Ager, and then I thought I’d share what I was finding with y’all and with anyone …
+JMJ+ In keeping with my new old schedule—On the Soul series Thursday, various and sundry on Monday—I’ll be posting my re-read of New Age books series here on Mondays. (Maybe I should subtitle it: If I’d only known then what I know now. And just so you know, this spot won’t be taken up completely …
Many years ago Fr. Mitch Pacwa and I shared an obsession with the new age. He wrote a book for Catholics and also gave some talks on the subject. Links in this post. Please share if you know anyone caught up in that stuff.
Let me tell you about a liturgy I attended while I was visiting my sister in another state which shall remain nameless (Florida). The building was round with a labyrinth outside it. Hmmm, I thought as my tentative footsteps echoed on the stones, Well, it’s too late to leave now. I have no idea where …
