Perhaps all religion has cognitive dissonant elements; but the New Age
religion of modern spirituality, as I see it, takes the prize for
creating a belief system that defies logic and justifies ignoring and
circumventing the hard realities of the world in which we live. The
irony is that I see the people who believe these lies as contributing to
maintaining the status quo because silence is consent. They see people
like me as resisting the status quo, which, in their belief system,
allows the matrix to continue: what you resist, persists, is their
dogma. Yes, it is confusing for almost, if not everyone.
sense to you?

The “New Age“ movement may indeed be opium for the masses who have left
the older religions behind them.
Intentional or not, it’s the perfect
way to keep the “awakened” docile.
If Martin Luther King and Gandhi chose to do nothing, I don’t think we
would have even known them or gotten to read their amazing life quotes,
and to see and feel the positive changes that came from what they stood
They might not be in this world anymore, but they left a mark in
this world/consciousness by standing up for what is right, not by
believing that everything is fine.
