Re-Reading the New Age, Part 1: Education, Bailey-Style

+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 with warnings about the New Age. I do post about other stuff, too. I already have some other post ideas that I’ve been meaning to work on.) As usual, notes and links are at the end of this post.

One World, One What?

Update, July 8, 2020: I’ve been wrestling with the PDF of a book listed in the notes section at the end of this post. (I finally solved the problem, or at least figured out what the problem was. Go to the notes to read more.)

Peace, Love, and Unity, isn’t that what the One World, One Religion movement is really all about? Not exactly.

Oh, the messes I got myself into back when I was a New Ager. I can still see myself arguing with my Grandmother. “But aren’t all religions the same? Aren’t they just so many different paths up the same mountain?” My Grandmother didn’t know about the New Age (other than that the True New Age began with Christ and will end when the world ends, but I didn’t know or believe that then).
