“See if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!”
– Psalm 139:24
New Age Spiritualism sounds like it would be off-beat. Something for weird people.
But it’s actually quite common.
In New Age Spirituality you are bad on the inside until you discover that you are really good. Then, through the right mindset, you blossom into a better you.
Contrast this with Christianity. In Christianity, God values you, but you alone are not good. It is restoration between you and God that makes you good.
In the one, your self-doubt and bad behavior is imagined or out-grown. In the other, you are lifted out by the only one who has a track record of success.
One option takes ego.
The other takes, necessarily, less ego.
