He has alerted his fellow priests to this danger — and trained his extraordinary ministers of holy Communion so that they note whether people receiving Communion are actually consuming it, not simply transporting it elsewhere for obscene purposes. While the Trinity doctrine teaches three distinct Persons, modalism maintains that one Person (usually the Father) has manifested Himself at different times under different names ( Jesus /Spirit) or modes.

A sacred grove behind the House of the Vestal Virgins on the edge of the Roman Forum lingered until its last vestiges were burnt in the Great Fire of Rome in 64 CE.

In other words, the individual comes to perceive every thing, every being, every moment, as part of one great tapestry.

Once the image had gained admittance, its function and uses proved difficult to delimit and control.

However, White’s claims may not be taken as normative as they have been challenged by Conradie and others (Conradie 2004 :126). Following this, Bradley ( 1990 :3) notes three dimensions of the matter. Firstly, he asserts that a distortion of the main message of the Christian faith has led to the idea that nature exists to meet human needs and desires, leading to human exploitation and domination, rather than cooperation Druidism Exhumed In Two Parts.

The Celtic monk or druid standing in the light of the risen sun was in his mind bathing in God’s luminescence. It is this concept of the sacred sun that reveals the true significance of the Celtic cross, whose characteristic structure is a cross and a ring. The ring is the sun, the revelation of the divine in and through nature prior to the manifestation of God’s love and mercy in Christ Lady Gregory's Complete Irish Mythology. There are, however, a number of other channeled documents which address issues more immediately relevant to the human condition. The best of these writings are not only coherent and plausible, but eloquently persuasive and sometimes disarmingly moving." Although not present in every New Age group, [125] a core belief of the movement is in channeling. [126] This is the idea that humans beings, sometimes (although not always) in a state of trance, can act "as a channel of information from sources other than their normal selves". [127] These sources are varyingly described as being God, gods and goddesses, ascended masters, spirit guides, extraterrestrials, angels, devas, historical figures, the collective unconscious, elementals, or nature spirits. [127] Hanegraaff described channeling as a form of "articulated revelation", [128] and identified four forms: trance channeling, automatisms, clairaudient channeling, and open channeling. [129] Prominent examples of channeling in the New Age movement include Jane Roberts ' claims that she was contacted by an entity called Seth, and Helen Schucman 's claims to have channeled Jesus Christ. [130] The academic Suzanne Riordan examined a variety of these New Age channeled messages, and noted that they typically "echoed each other in tone and content", offering an analysis of the human condition and giving instructions or advice for how humanity can discover its true destiny. [131] For many New Agers, these channeled messages rival the scriptures of the main world religions as sources of spiritual authority, [132] although often New Agers describe historical religious revelations as forms of "channeling" as well, thus attempting to legitimate and authenticate their own contemporary practices. [133] Although the concept of channeling from discarnate spirit entities has links to Spiritualism and psychical research, in the New Age movement the Spiritualist emphasis on proving the existence of life after death is absent, as is the psychical research focus of testing mediums for consistency. [134] New Age thought typically envisions the world as developing through a series of large astronomical cycles which can be identified astrologically. [135] Although the concept of distinct ages has older roots in Western esoteric thought, the New Age movement adopted it from Theosophy, [136] despite the fact that such New Age conceptions of ages are often looser and more eclectic than those in Theosophical doctrine. [137] New Age literature often claims that humanity once lived in an age of spiritual wisdom. [136] In the writings of New Agers like Edgar Cayce, the ancient period of spiritual wisdom is associated with concepts of supremely-advanced societies living on lost continents such as Atlantis, Lemuria, and Mu, as well as the idea that ancient societies like those of Ancient Egypt were far more technologically advanced than modern scholarship accepts. [138] New Age literature often posits that the ancient period of spiritual wisdom ultimately gave way to an age of spiritual decline, sometimes termed the Age of Pisces. [136] Although characterised as being a negative period for humanity, New Age literature views the Age of Pisces as an important learning experience for the species. [139] Hanegraaff stated that New Age perceptions of history were "extremely sketchy" in their use of description, [139] reflecting little interest in historiography and conflating history with myth. [140] He also noted that they were highly ethnocentric in placing Western civilization at the centre of historical development. [137] A common belief among the New Age movement is that humanity has entered, or is coming to enter, a new age known as the Age of Aquarius, [141] which Melton has characterised as a "New Age of love, joy, peace, abundance, and harmony[...] the Golden Age heretofore only dreamed about". [142] In accepting this belief in a coming new age, the movement has been described as "highly positive, celebratory, [and] utopian", [143] and has also been cited as an apocalyptic movement. [144] Opinions about the nature of the coming New Age differ among New Agers. [145] There are for instance differences in belief about its commencement, with New Age author David Spangler claiming that it began in 1967, [146] while various practitioners placed its beginning with the Harmonic Convergence of 1987, [147] with others claiming that it will not begin until several centuries into the third millennium. [148] There are also differences in how this new age is envisioned. [149] Those adhering to what Hanegraaff termed the "moderate" perspective believed that it would be marked by an improvement to current society, which affected both New Age concerns – through the convergence of science and mysticism and the global embrace of alternative medicine – to more general concerns, including an end to violence, crime and war, a healthier environment, and international co-operation. [150] Other New Agers adopt a fully utopian vision, believing that the world will be wholly transformed into an "Age of Light", with humans evolving into totally spiritual beings and experiencing unlimited love, bliss, and happiness. [151] The Age of Aquarius is not viewed as eternal, but it is instead believed that it will last for around two thousand years, before being replaced by a further age. [152] There are various beliefs within the movement as to how this new age will come about, but most emphasise the idea that it will be established through human agency; others assert that it will be established with the aid of non-human forces such as spirits or extraterrastrials. [153] Participants in the movement typically express the view that their own spiritual actions are helping to bring about the Age of Aquarius, [154] with a common belief also being that there are higher powers in the universe that are helping to birth the new age. [155] Another core factor of the New Age movement is its emphasis on healing and the use of alternative medicine. [156] [157] The general ethos within the movement is that health is the natural state for the human being and that illness is a disruption of that natural balance. [158] Hence, New Age therapies seek to heal " illness " as a general concept which includes physical, mental, and spiritual aspects; in doing so it critiques mainstream Western medicine for simply attempting to cure disease, and thus has an affinity with most forms of traditional medicine found around the world. [159] The concept of " personal growth " is also greatly emphasised within the healing aspects of the New Age movement. [160] The movement's focus of self-spirituality has led to the emphasis of self-healing, [161] although also present in the movement are ideas that focus on both healing others and healing the Earth itself. [162] Reiki is one of the alternative therapies commonly found in the New Age movement A Keeper of Words: Accompanying Book to Legend: The Arthurian Tarot (book only).

It has become one of the most important centres of the Human Potential Movement, and has spread ideas about holistic medicine in the worlds of education, politics and economics. This has been done through courses in comparative religion, mythology, mysticism, meditation, psychotherapy, expansion of consciousness and so on The Tarot of Durer. There appears to be a nostalgia for a unified perspective, a renewed vision and approach to both the spiritual and the material world. Perhaps, without being fully understood, this nostalgia, as such, finds a refreshing spring of pure water in Celtic Christianity, in the saintly personalities and poetry of its monks The Truth Within. The problem arises when those things transform from blessings into idols.
