Obviously I don't know you, so I don't think you can blame me for not knowing you were being light hearted. Maybe if we were face to face in real life, but this is the internet bro so I can't read your face and intentions. And emoticons mean nothing anymore these days, as they are often used to cover one's upsetting feelings.

Its partly my fault for expressing anger at the New Age in the OP. Must stop getting annoyed at the New Age and at I AM.

I don't see anything wrong with it as long you aren't personally attacking someone, so no need to be sorry. Aren't we all free to be entitled to our own opinions? As someone who also opposes New Age I can understand your anger. It's not that I hate the whole movement, but a lot of things in it just don't seem to make any sense. Don't get me wrong I also believe there is something though I have my limits when it comes to believing certain things.

Metal never made me depressed, however, it could get me ramped up ...
Listening to it kept my momentum up w/chores as well as staying positive ...
I recognize your life views come from your short life of experiences ...
It will change or be added to as you continue living ...
And some people just do not get it - not any of it ...
It's simply okay to reject anything that does not resonate w/you ...
Even if some people belittle you w/their impatience or whatever it is that motivates them to be less observant of what is before them intentionally or not ...
Also, when making ill fitting &/or demeaning jokes or comments ...
Just be you! We do not have to accept whatever we do not want ...
Be well ...

Wether you are a New Age follower or not, at least you're someone I can talk to. Yes, my life is short but funny enough it already feels like I have lived a whole life. Either way, I care little for those who try to belittle me with their sillyness because I know I'm far above that. Either way, thanks for your reply and I will try my very best to stay well (you too by the way!)

Thanks!
There are some people who believe their age entitles them to behave superior w/everyone even if they are not their child or supervisor ...
Geez, I'm old & do have alot of experience including alot I wished had never happened ...
Experience is to be passed on, not shoved down a person's throat or used to be an authority over people ...
At the same time, my 21&22 yrs olds keep me young by keeping me informed & up to date on what is happening in their world from what is currently being taught in schools, subtle changes in the workforce to how society is evolving from their youthful perspectives ...
My 42yrs old son is in the military, his former job was as a drill sargeant ...
Communication is his weakness w/anyone younger than himself even though his wife is the boss at home ...
He is condescending w/young people including his siblings; he believes it will make his brother a man & will prepare his sister & daughter for the world ..
I think its B S & don't tolerate it b/c he's not putting any effort into getting along &/or listening to them or conveying any type of information in a respectful manner much less in a way that holds their attention ...
Mom here has on many countless occasions reminded him he was once just like them - in learning mode ...
He believes I'm too liberal which is exactly how I raised him ...
Unfortunately, he's a d**k most of the time, I remind him it's best for his health & well being to find some type of relaxation techniques to help prevent high blood pressure or a heart attack, etc ...
I hope whatever helps stop being smug & aggressive will not disable him ...
Some of my juniors, close to my age & older still require learning lessons to humble themself, learn to use their knowledge & experience to help people instead of causing harm ...
Blessings ...

Well, think of it this way, as I do.

Whatever information the 'New Age Movement' gets is all second-hand anyway. It must have an 'Old Age' to be compared to, or else it wouldn't be 'New Age' would it?

Oh my, what they have done with concepts like Tantra and Kundalini and Auras/Chakras. It's like "esoteric commercialisms r us".

Truthfully and honestly? I wouldn't worry too much about what 'other people' do or what they are saying you should do. If you are happy and comfortable in your own belief systems and have no more 'room' for incorporation, inclusion or change and you've reached where you want to be, nobody says you have to or should be listening.

I have yet to come up with the most politest way of saying "Yes, I KNOW it's all up to me, so why do you still insist on imposing your unwelcomed beliefs eh?"

The best I can do, is be like a 'belief-processing checkout chick"..."thank you...NEXT...thank you....NEXT...thank you....NEXT..."

This is the best thing you can do if you don't like what other people are saying to you, because you realise that if there wasn't some truth in it, it wouldn't be affecting you so much....so, thank you...NEXT...

....and don't get me started on Metal or you'll never hear the end of it. \m/

There ya go! Observation exercise: Type "New Age..." in the Religion forum, or "Religion..." in the Spiritual forum, and then watch the reaction. Issues like this are always more to do with our personal biases than with either New Age or Religion.

The New Age is such a disgusting trend.
