The new age
movement is not an organized religion but an informal network of
people in search of answers to spiritual questions. The search for truth
may lead them to examine many divergent paths such as reincarnation of
souls, out-of-body experiences, astrology, the messages of world
religions, ancient and pagan religions, auras, chakras and many, many more.
In spite of the great diversity in the movement, there are some beliefs
that most new age adherents share:
◊ There is a divine
energy that transcends the universe.
◊ Everything in the
universe is connected to this divine energy and to everything else.
◊ It is important to
guard the health of the Earth.
◊ Different religions
offer different paths to the universal divine force.
