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