The Dangers of Meditation,


Angels, and the
New Age Movement
_______________________________________________________


"There is a way that seems right to a man,
but its end is the way of death."

Proverbs 14:12


Our grandparents understood the hidden dangers of the supernatural "Dont
dabble in it!" But todays generation thinks the danger is greatly exaggerated
and that by approaching the supernatural in the right way, significant personal
benefits may be found.

Not only are people dabbling in the supernatural, but they are making a study
of it, practising New Age meditation techniques, using visualization, seeking
guidance from angels, and getting in touch with their inner selves.

If you are in sympathy with the New Age movement and feel it has a
spirituality that is worth exploring, then you may wish to reflect a moment on
the dangers that our grandparents were warning us about.

Principles of the New Age
Let's look first at some of the principles that underpin the New Age
movement. Typically, a person who has fully embraced the New Age
perspective believes that he is, in a very real sense, a divine being clothed in a
human body but that his 'consciousness' is not yet sufficiently developed to
recognize this. So, in order to enable him to release his creative potential or
inborn divinity, he uses a number of techniques, such as meditation,
contemplation, chanting or yoga, to expand his awareness. As he does so, he
learns that he is the author or creator of his own universe and that, with
positive thinking and the correct use of his imagination, he can change his
reality and create a more fulfilling and rewarding life for himself.

Most New Age followers believe that God is unconditional love, that
everyone is going to heaven after death, and that death itself is simply an
illusion. They also believe that each individual must learn to set aside his
mind and find the truth intuitively within himself. This involves harmonising
oneself with the creative energy that is meant to permeate the universe and, in
due course, entering into the bliss, inner light and divine illumination that is
the birthright of every soul.


"The heart is deceitful above all things, and
desperately wicked: who can know it?"

Jeremiah 17:9


Pantheism and Idolatry
Our grandparents would have called this pantheism and idolatry, but many
people today have a different opinion. Why? Because they no longer study
and believe the Word of God. They have decided instead to 'experience' and
determine truth for themselves. They are hooked on the New Age belief that
the essence of truth is already inside us, just waiting to be discovered. But this
is a dreadful deception. It assumes that we are capable of discerning truth for
ourselves through personal experience but we are not! This is the very same
deception that Satan used to trap Eve in the Garden of Eden.

Firstly, he got her to doubt what God had told her: Has God indeed said?

Then he got her to believe that she was divine You will be like God and
that she would live forever You will not surely die.

And finally he convinced her that she would be able to decide truth for
herself, knowing good and evil.

The New Age movement teaches all of these falsehoods that death is an
illusion, that everyone is divine, that truth is subjective, that good and evil are
relative, and that God will never judge anyone. This latter belief is known in
the New Age as the law of karma, an impersonal law of cause and effect
which they believe governs the whole of creation. They claim that this in turn
is connected to the principle of reincarnation, where soul is meant to 'evolve'
over many lifetimes in accordance with its karma.

Re-packaged ind!ism and "!ddhism
Few truth-seekers seem to realize that the New Age philosophy is simply
Hinduism and Buddhism in a repackaged form. There is hardly a single New
Age belief or practice that cannot be traced directly to one of these pagan
religions. The repackaging was done mainly by H P Blavatsky, a famous
Russian practitioner of the occult in the 19
th
century. She boasted that she
received all of her teachings by channeling, that is by mediumistic
communication with two disembodied spirits whom she called Morya and
Koot Humi. Her principal successor, Alice Bailey, continued her work by
channeling the teachings of a spirit guide whom she called Djwhal Khul.
Virtually the whole of the New Age movement is built on the writings of these
two women.

Our grandparents could see that people like Blavatsky and Bailey were
actually practising witchcraft and that their 'spirit guides' were fallen angels.
In fact, Blavatsky brazenly stated many times in her writings that her god was
Lucifer.

Further repackaging has been done in recent years like A Course in Miracles
by Helen Schucman and Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch
to make these ancient occult teachings seem even more appealing. And they
are being promoted by celebrities like Oprah Winfrey in order to bring them
to a wider audience and make them seem compatible in some way with
Christianity. But they are not! They are really the teachings of the legions of
fallen angels who rebelled against God six thousand years ago.



"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but
against principalities, against powers, against
the rulers of the darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places."

Ephesians 6:12

Note: Principalities and powers are
categories of fallen angel.


The New Age movement is presenting pagan, occult and magical ideas in an
attractive, inoffensive format. By using Christian-sounding terms like love,
freedom, light, soul, heart, harmony, growth, oneness, angels, and so forth, its
principal architects are deliberately concealing the occult origin of their
doctrines and techniques.

New Age luminaries like Eckhart Tolle and Marianne Williamson are actually
promoting pantheism and shamanism in a cleverly disguised form. In doing so
they are luring millions away from Christ and toward the god of the New Age.

A disg!ised attack on #hristianity
Christians need to realize that the New Age movement is an extremely clever
progamme to undermine and destroy Christianity. Its architects and principal
exponents despise the Bible and all that it teaches.

To open yourself in any way to their influence is to play with fire. They have
only one goal, namely to pull you as far as possible into their occult domain.
The 'light' of the New Age is the dark light that Jesus warned about "If
therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness!"
(Matthew 6:23)


"For Satan himself transforms himself
into an angel of light."

2 Corinthians 11:14
