New World Religion

The "new world religion" is the New Age Gaians' eco-religion, it is also the UN lead global ethic movement.

After reading articles and books by New Age movement leaders, I wrote:

(1.) "The belief in a world soul that is honored and prayed to, as is Gaia, by New Age Gaians, is not just a contemporary belief and spiritual practice. This belief and spiritual practice is ancient and found in both Eastern and Western culture."

(2.) "The world soul is a spiritual principle having the same relation to the physical world as the human soul does to the body. New Age Gaians of the 'new world religion' believe the world soul (Gaia) is not accorded the status of being the Ultimate Source, or Supreme Cosmic Spirit, but might be looked upon as an archangelic being, or Brahma in the Hindu religion, or Mother Earth in Native American religions, or Mary the mother of Jesus in the Roman Catholic religion."

(3.) "James Lovelock wrote: 'What if Mary is another name for Gaia?' Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ."

(4.) "When referring to Gaia as the world soul, David Spangler, one of the founding figures of the modern New Age movement, wrote: 'It is generally not accorded the status of being the ultimate source...but might be looked upon as a great angelic or archangelic being presiding over the well being of the world, or as the gestalt, the wholeness of all the lives and patterns that manifest upon, and as, the earth.'"

(5.) "The 'new world religion' views the world soul as the spirit of the earth, physically manifesting itself as the Earth, or Gaia, who presides over the well being of the world and is subject to the authority/will of God almighty."

Swami B. V. Tripurari wrote, in his book, Ancient Wisdom for Modern Ignorance: "Our present environmental crisis is in essence a spiritual crisis. We need only to look back to medieval Europe and the psychic revolution that vaulted Christianity to victory over paganism to find the spirit of the environmental crisis."

"Inhibitions to the exploitation of nature vanished as the Church took the 'spirits' out of the trees, mountains, and seas. Christianity's ghost-busting theology made it possible for man to exploit nature in a mood of indifference to the feelings of natural objects. It made nature man's monopoly. This materialist paradigm has dominated the modern world for the last few centuries."

"The current deplorable environmental crisis demands a spiritual response. A fundamental reorientation of human consciousness."

While calling for a fundamental reorientation of human consciousness, or a new spiritual relationship between man and nature, Al Gore, in his book Earth In The Balance, praises traditional Native American spiritualism, which has a true spiritual sense of our place in nature. In spite of this calling of Gore's and other influential leaders, the Christian church continues to promote its old earth-destroying relationship between man and nature. Christianity believes man is separate from nature and is suppose to dominate it. Native American spiritualism believes man is a part of nature and that he is to live in harmony with nature.

In spite of the value of Native American spiritualism and the value of the spiritualism of all the indigenous tribal peoples residing throughout the western hemisphere, the Christian church has been trying, since the European Christian invasion of the Americas, to completely eliminate it by genocidal colonization processes - it's a church mission fueled by racism, religious bigotry and corporate greed - which have been ongoing for 500 plus years.
