This blog is just my personal opinion and certainly a broad generalization.
I respect people’s right to their religious beliefs but this doesn’t extend to “New Age” yuppies: Actually, considering the definition of “yuppie” new age posers would claim they are not “yuppies” because they are not materialistic but I think it fits their description perfectly.
I label religion as fascist because it is an absolute ideology: but your average mindless automaton patronisingly spouting new age crap is equally fascist because they don’t allow people to dis agree.
I don’t believe in karma. Karma, like god is a way of stopping the peasants from revolting. If one believes God will change things or what goes around comes around they will not try to change things themselves. And karma is the Hindi word for work: e.g. karma sutra. – a form of work I am sure most would enjoy.
Another new age philosophy which infuriates me is that we should thank abusers, sociopaths and psychopaths for teaching us something. Certainly, fits in with a culture that supports and glorifies criminals and tell victims that they must have deserved it!
This theory is based on the “New Age” assumption that we are here to learn.
Really! What I have learned in my almost three score years and ten is that to fit in one is required to be a mindless automaton: to succeed it is necessary to be a sociopath and a narcissist!
I realize we as humans try to find a meaning to life and I am not sure that there is one. I don’t disagree with everything that is now labelled “New Age”.
I agree with positive thinking and in “spiritual” healing. I have “seen” healing energy swirling electric blue and auras expand. In my opinion, our thoughts and words do have power.
I like sceptics — people who question what they are told. (Including my blogs)
Long ago, a lecturer at college told me that I was an original thinking. I realize it was a compliment but although “original thinkers” can no longer be put to death, we certainly don’t fit in.
No wonder I am anthrophobic.

In primary school the class was asked to write an essay entitled “My Wish”
I wrote that I wished people would care more about looking after nature and the planet than money.
Seeing that this is never going to happen in my life time or possibly ever!
I wrote this short story for myself and as sympathetic magick
