If one remembers the 70’s and 80’s they would be aware of a shift from the conventional into trends inspired by Eastern cultures. Such things as the performance of The Age of Aquarius and other works lifted the spirits out of the doldrums and overturned the old for a new way of living. First came the pill that liberated women, followed by an open attitude to partnerships without marriage and acceptance of the LGBT trend based on love.
It was exciting and frightening at the same time. People previously held back because of convention and tradition were caught up in a global movement by the young to shed the chains of bondage. It has never actually stopped as one thing led to another and to a broadening of ideas in general.
Universities were suddenly places for open thought and action. They virtually led the way into the 21st Century with its populace movement. While it affected mostly Western nations the rest of the world is now catching up.
There is another aspect of the New Age that came unexpectedly from a spiritual perspective. As people shed religious notions of their forebears many found a new way of connecting to the Spirit of the Universe. This is highlighted in the Pentecostal approach to accepting that we have that promise that if we connect to the Spirit it will communicate back.
This is exactly what has happened. Following the spread of this philosophy miracle of healing and a resurgence of personal peace came into the mix.
Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit this was an area of the new Age that made me feel at home. It is how the prophecies in the Old Testament determine things will be as we approach the end of the day. The massive population explosion is verification that all who have lived before are back, as per the promises.
The Internet is another part of the New Age that allows immediate communication with anyone in the world. This is a miracle of the times. It was promised to be the Mountain of God that would appear at the end of the earth (Micah 4:1) and the vehicle by which the real Spirit can speak to everyone and deliver the knowledge that has been hidden for so long.
