                                                  Here's an unofficial list of beliefs that some individuals in New Age may have in common:

You create your own reality and destiny. This is a planet of free choice, and you have your own free will.

You have certain challenges to face and overcome in this lifetime. If you don't learn your lessons this time, you'll get them again.

There is no such thing as coincidence.

There is more to life than meets the eye, much more.

Nothing really matters in this life unless it is done for the benefit of others.

We are not alone.

We are multidimensional beings currently having a human experience.

We are all receiving more help than we know, from angels, spirit guides, ascended masters and others.


We can heal ourselves, our society, and our world.

The ultimate transformation for mankind is ascension.

Wow Buffy, I basically agree with all of those principles, but my ideas stem from my
own spiritual experiences and my spiritual beliefs, rather than any kind of New Age
mentality.

I especially belive in

We do what we do because of who we are. If we did otherwise, we would not be ourselves.

                                                  i agree with LB and celtic....they should be things you believe in if you are part of the New Age movement. this kind of belief should be obtained through spirituality.

my belief for this is tronger than my belief fior the others, although i belive them all.

                                                  yes, i agree with everyone that has posted so far, but i also think that we should heal ourselves, our society and our world, by helping others, above ourown needs and desires.  To make other people happy.

                                                  i guess im new age.  i agree with them all  smile.gif                                                  

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

                                                  A couple of those are a bit, wacky.. I believe in the principle of self healing, but it is actually hard to do.  To achieve that, the person has to be willing to do an 'autopsy' on themselves, and most people don't like to see their own flaws.  Much less admit that they have any at all.

                                                  I don’t agree with this one of them:

"You create your own reality and destiny"
This is only partially true, as the actions of others have a direct influence on what a person’s destiny is. This isn’t just my opinion, but is scientifically proven, like a ripple affect on water

But then again how you interpret the events in your life will determine your
reality, and in fact dictate your destiny...

..ie. the old motto - it's not a problem, it's an opportunity.... which changes your
slant on the situation...

                                                  But the statement said: "you create your own reality and destiny"

If you spent several years training for, and being accepted to compete in, the Olympic games, and the day before your event you get hit by a car and your legs are broke, then the reality you created and the destiny you created have just been shattered due to someone else’s actions.

So to say only you create your own reality and own destiny is wrong. Again, this isn’t my opinion, this is fact

But say if it was ur fault in the first place that you got hit by the car.... then you have still created your own destiny and broke the reality you had........... then again maybe it was fate that decided that it wasn't meant to be.........

                                                  That brings up a whole lot of ‘what ifs’, but what I was getting at, if someone drove off the side of the road and hit someone who was on the side of the road, breaking their legs, then their reality/destiny has just been changed by SOMEONE ELSE. They are then left with a variety of options, with which they can choose a new reality/destiny, which can also be changed by SOMEONE ELSE. Meaning an individual life is an ever evolving ripple in the ocean of ripples involving everyone else’s life, and nobody has ever been able to control their own destiny, and they never will.
